No, the college "tradition" is just that. It has those traditions because people graduate from the university, and pass along those unique things to the generations who follow. 

Nobody graduated from a pro team. Colleges/universities can pick up in the middle of the night and move to a new town.

mod edit what, exactly?

there is a line where a zero tolerance policy is unpalatable 

please never go there, my respected and esteemed Mods. 

Bourbon up!

Comment 23 Oct 2016

should comments be archived, so when schizophrenic fans hop back on the bandwagon later when these Buckeyes find a way to get to 11-1, they can reflect upon past thoughts?  It isn't like anything posted on this site is read by the coaching staff, so words here have zero impact on come what may.

creative analysis and constructive discussions (those that serve to educate and elevate the readership) are why many come and read/participate in the articles/forum posts

now, it's time for a Bourbon and a cigar

carry on

what some fans want to see out of JT Barrett may never materialize in the current system he so ably operates (the RPO) -- he will NOT be chucking it all over the field like he owns the place. The Buckeyes are not TexasTech, Baylor, Cal, TCU, etc. -- they are a B1G offense with many capable weapons. 

Comment 23 Oct 2016

reading several of the comments in this thread, one gets the impression all this frustration with college players being 'not pro quality' is driving all the disappointment. Kinda hard when they are only 18-22 years old.  Also, wanting the Buckeyes to employ "air-raid" passing schemes is unrealistic -- you'll need to change coaching staffs to have that happen.

Hope Coach Stud learns that lesson -- it's okay to pull the starter when he obviously lost the ability to engage the enemy with the expected vigor. There are players on the depth chart for a reason -- they are player "1-B" and ready to play when called. 

Gotta make that call sooner

that should stop -- because Weber can chip block very well - better than the TEs so far

I notice from your profile we like the same things

many, many years ago I did visit the Velvet Ice Cream works in Utica - cool and great cream!

I believe this edition of the Buckeyes will rebound from this 2-game stretch of 'less-than-stellar play, and come out refreshed with a team-unifying effort to beat their tendencies and conquer the subconscious fears of playing loose and risky.

could it be they both had crappy days in crappy field conditions, by that I mean slippery grass turf where dancing pachyderms dare not make their stand?
