That's my take too. Bama will simply wear down UW by the end of the third quarter, as Bama has much more depth.
The odd thing was that Woody was the gentlest of gentlemen off the field, a kind softie, and a very educated member of the faculty. Both my Mom and Dad (TOSU prof) met him.
Woody spoke at my high school (UAHS) in a wheelchair a year before he died. He was uplifting to everyone, regardless of their politics or race. Standing ovation by all. He just radiated positivity.
Chris Peterson (UW) is a great coach, but UW is going to be crushed by Bama. Everything is in place for a Bama-TOSU rematch.
We need another performance like 2003 against Miami. Play lights out, Buckeyes!
This is another moment when I'm thankful that we have Schiano coaching in the secondary. Shut 'em down, Bucks!
I'm just glad that we don't have repeat games vs. TTUN or PSU.
Not that we couldn't beat them both, but it makes for bad TV (who really wants to watch a B1G rematch?) and it would diminish the importance of The Game vs. TTUN.
We'll likely get by Clemson. Bama is looking for revenge from 2014 though. If we get to the final round it's going to be interesting.
They lost (again) to TOSU when they had their most senior players, got fined $10,000, and now no Rose Bowl.
As long as Urban is swinging at air instead of Clemson players, we'll be good.
Nate and Gigi now get to be Uncle and Auntie, respectively. Congratulations to the Meyer family!
Actually he's a Grandpa three times over: Through his daughter, owning Harbaugh, and being Tyvis's daddy, who in turn was Cardale's daddy.
That's what puzzles me. Go to UT with Tom Herman and you're likely to be in the top 4. Go to TA&M ... You're likely going to be playing third fiddle.
Wherever we end up, It will be of our own doing.
But, being a Seattle resident, Washington is going to be taken behind the woodshed by Alabama. Sometimes it's just better to go to the Rose Bowl.
That Purdue fireworks pick is just, well, sad ... big booms with no-one in the stands ... and they lost.
It would be like the Weber-Barrett-Samuel threat on steroids.
I love it when an out of state kid buys in 100% before moving on campus. This kid already gets what it means to be part of the Buckeye Family. He's going to be a good one.
To be fair, we don't spell the "I" during Carmen Ohio at the end. It's just O-H-O. So he's legit.
Give an Urban Meyer team over a month to prepare ... Dis gonna B Gud!
I thought that was Mark Dantonio?
I still think the jury is out on this hire. Charlie Strong was a good coach and couldn't fix the mess in Texas, even after chasing away the bad apples on the team.
IMO Tom Herman jumped at the Texas job too soon. Whether he succeeds or fails there aren't many places to go after that, apart from the NFL. Texas as a program makes the most money in CFB, but if you don't win it all, there will be trouble brewing.
To this day I hear Florida fans hating on Urban -- after he took a year off!! Just say "Thank you for the most National Championships in our school's history".
Coaches will go wherever they want anyway, but it's mind-boggling that you would hate on the best coach you've ever had.
Sad that this happened to one of Urban's mentors and a good coach, but you can't put kids' lives at risk.
I didn't take offense to the hand sign. I took it to mean "I'm close with Urban Meyer".
I'll always be a fan of Troy Smith, but I'll go with JT because he's put up his record-breaking numbers while also having much more responsibility than Troy had for managing the offense (zone read, changing plays). He also is unequivocally one of the best captains/leaders we've ever had. The guy is intensely serious about winning.
The kid is from Texas, his family is in Texas, so I'm not surprised he's staying in-state. I am somewhat surprised that he chose A&M over UT Austin, though (assuming he had a UT offer).
