Always appreciated I got to spend my freshman year at St John arena. It was awesome! The Schott opened my Sophmore year and it has never been the same. But such is progress I suppose....

Andy, couldn't agree any stronger with your stance. I would love to know what people would think if every athlete acted like this, right down to our beloved Buckeyes? Would their stance stay the same when 11w has no content. If every OSU player and coach acted this way? Because if the media is out to get Lynch and all media is bad I certainly don't want my Buckeyes falling into their trap.

 What Lynch is doing is the most unprofessional thing I have seen in a long time from an athlete. Trying to make the media members out to be the enemy is crazy. The media is a major reason he can afford his luxuries in life, the least he could do is answer a few questions. Are their idiot questions at times? Yes, but play your shtick on those questions.

Because he recruited players?? Just because it would have been all JT players that he recruited doesn't give him credit for wins. Wins come from coaching and leadership and we saw what happen to JT's players without that under Fickell. Tressel gets zero credit for any wins or losses when he isn't the head coach. This is crazy to even talk about any credit given to Tressel for this team. True coaching greatness was achieved this year and people want to dilute it because of a handful of Tressel recruits on the team? He had zero impact on this team.

Agreed, great post on Smith. Its the real world and that is how it works out here. If this upsets people then they are in for a long life of being upset at every CEO or Boss above them.

In a sense I agree. However what makes his situation much different is that fact he may never get a chance to increase his stock by seeing the field. This is the reason all of this makes sense. If he was guaranteed the starting job then yes, I agree you stick around and work on your skills. Beating out Miller and JT will be a very tough task for him and I wouldn't want my stock to drop by sitting on the sideline. EVERYONE is talking about him right now. He is becoming a Household name overnight. There will be endorsement deals up the butt for a story like him and with his personality. Hit why the iron is hot!

Not if he sits behind Miller or JT. No guarantee he sees the field next year to enhance his status.

Comment 13 Jan 2015

If this man leaves, which I think he should as his stock will never be higher, he will be the greatest legend to ever wear the Scarlet and Gray! that is saying something but this would be like Elway going out on top. It would be the greatest thing in the world! Cardale go make your money and never pay for another meal in Ohio again!

I love this type of comment! Questioning an important hire by arguably the best coach in the nation! Lets welcome him aboard and see what he can do! Christ, won't be long and we will have  #firebeck trending! You never know what type of direction/leadership he had at his other stops. We know what type of direction and leadership he will have at OSU and with Meyer.

Agree, the other I believe was Cardale's first pass of the game where he rolled out and hit Thomas for 5-6 yards on an out pass. Ball was poorly thrown low but Thomas dove and stretched out to make the catch. those little things gave Cardale the confidence he needed. I like Thomas because he is sure handed and makes the play to help move the chains. You almost forget about him on the field then all of a sudden, Boom, there he is making a play!

Getting 5-7 yards on first down will be huge. this team is set up for being unpredictable when we are in 2nd/3rd and short. Would love to see EZE get 6 yds on 1st down and then we got the playbook at our disposal. Let the Defense get a few stops and its really all we need. Feeling better and better about this game as the days go by.

Good call on Old Crow! It being new I had forgotten about it. Fun place if you like the Buckeyes, BBQ and Country music.

Mcghee's is a great Buckeye bar!  Great crowd and a ton of TV's.  May have to get there early for this one though to get a table.
