I heard on the radio that the Ohio legislature included a provision in the Mid-Biennium Review Bill prohibiting college athletes in the state from unionizing. It was targeted directly at those Northwestern malcontents (sarcasm).

If unionizing becomes the rage in college athletics I wonder how much of a disadvantage OSU would be at on the recruiting trail because of that state law?

Look forward to seeing Brady play!

Anybody know if there's a way to see that game day experience video he referenced without being a big time recruit?

Men who LOVE college football are college football fans.

Men who LOVE pro football are pro football fans.

Men who LOVE both college and pro football with equal fervor are called divorced.

I agree. I don't know exactly what being a pro coach entails, but I would think that being at a high pressure place like OSU would be more difficult (time consuming at least) than being a pro coach.
Comment 10 Jan 2014

Of all the defensive coaches Vrabel is the one I most wanted to stay.

Comment 09 Jan 2014

Until the B1G improves in nonconference and bowl play the Buck's schedule will never get national respects.

Comment 05 Jan 2014

I agree about Philly. Even though that play definitely changed the momentum and very possibly cost OSU the game, I am ok with it. He definitely should have called a fair catch. However, I believe that if you're going to make a mistake that you should make it going full speed and giving 100%.

It was a huge mistake, but if Philly had caught the ball, spun to the left and took it to the house to break Clemson's will we'd all be singing his praises. I'm not nearly as upset about that fumble as I am about how often our defensive backs look timid or lost in coverage so often.

Comment 05 Jan 2014

I agree. My hunch is that Meyer ordered Vonn to be played in this game. I simply can't understand why it wasn't done much sooner by the co-defensive coordinators. Would he make mistakes? Yes, but that kid is a spark plug. And I'd rather see him making those initial start mistakes early on against Iowa, Purdue etc... Rather than against ttun, B1G Champ and BCS matchup.

there were a lot of mistakes on defense this year, but waiting until the bowl game to start Vonn was 1 of the biggest and speaks directly to the defensive coordinators. It's not like EZE's situation, who was waiting his turn behind a beast like El Guapo.

I believe if Braxton comes back that it will be a breakout year for him. This year wasn't it. He needs that before going pro. He has to be a QB in the pros (that's the only position where your at least designed not to get hit 95% of the time). From what I've seen his body won't hold up at any other position where your expected to get and give hits on a regular basis.

if he doesn't come back I wouldn't be surprised to see JT and Cardale split time, at least for the 1st half of the season. There may also be less drama if he doesn't return. I didn't think some of his comments about getting hit too much in the days leading up to the bowl game helped anything.

I also hate to see Carlos go, but I have full faith that EzE has the potential to become our next Heisman winner. That kid's a winner.

even though he got burned a couple times, Vonn Bell provided a spark. I can't wait to watch him every Saturday next year.

Even though the defense was really bad last night, I kind of expected worse (I just thought the O would do better than they did). I attribute at least some of the D's spirit to Vonn and Tyvis and Marcus.

A Plain Dealer reporter wrote today that they thought Clemson's players have seemed to be in a more positive mental state this past week. That's understandable considering not only the last OSU on-field loss, but also the loss of Roby, Spence and Bryant's bad news.

I'm just curious if the 11W staff have seen a similar, less than optimistic demeanor from the Buckeye players and even coaches?

Comment 03 Jan 2014

I think Tressel has his eyes on the U of Akron presidency. And lets face it, he is a perfect fit for that position. 

As a college president there is longevity, respectability and the ability to inspire thousands of students, faculty and other community members.

As head coach of the Brownies you get constant uncertainty, derision and the ability to embarrass and further humiliate thousands of demoralized fans. 

Comment 29 Dec 2013

I can't imagine that UFM was too happy to see Vonn's statement in the paper that he'd start. Doesn't strike me as something he'd take kindly to... Don't the coaches usually announce the starters?

Comment 24 Dec 2013

Agree. I have a theory that there are 3 types of men:

 

1. Those who love pro sports (pro sports fans).

2. Those who love college sports (college sports fans).

3. Those who love both college and pro sports (divorced).

Comment 23 Dec 2013

No, I run Luke Fickell's fan club, but I could probably take on the added responsibility of another.

Who's Jack Burton?
