Yeah, there was blood on the field. We bleed Scarlet. When they bleed Scarlet they show themselves.
0-3, soon to be 0-4. 42-13 in Ann Arbor.
Let's send Ol' Jake out with a beatdown in the Horseshoe.
Or White Castle
TTUN features the TE more than we do now. That's probably part of it. We've used the TE primarily as a release valve from the running game, TTUN features the TE in the passing game.
I think this all changes this year with our renewed emphasis on the passing game. It will be up to Urban, Tim Beck and Ed Warriner, but I see good things coming.
Hopefully he'll have Butt-er fingers.
I really want to see Mike Weber put on a show against them.
^ I want a giant poster of this on my bedroom wall so I can laugh hysterically every morning.
Nebraska is sitting pretty in the B1G. They're getting $50 million from the conference and they're also the only big sport in their state. They could become the Ohio State of the West division, with little competition.
The only team worth a damn in the Big 12 is Oklahoma.
These look dumb. The darker orange/yellow has less contrast with the blue. Their players wear dark blue + bright yellow. Though that combination disgusts me, it is one of their iconic elements.
Also, the Jordan logo is practically as big as the university logo. One for each nipple, I guess.
Pure Michigan (tm)
DJ and lowered expectations:
Yeah, a bear's heart beats so slowly that it would rip you apart before it even felt anything. And bears are so fast that you can't outrun them.
But generally bears other than polar bears won't attack unless they're starving or you are perceived as threatening their cubs.
The only way I know of to evade a bear is to run steeply downhill. Supposedly they have trouble with that.
Bowling Green wins because they were abandoned at the altar by Urban Meyer.
A tragedy. It's easy to take life for granted. Prayers for their families.
Yeah, I'd rather have Stacy Elliott on payroll then have some random "ambassador" fans tweeting at recruits.
If Urbz can ban the color blue and the name of TTUN he can also ban khakis.
Put another way, Stacy had no obligation to TOSU once Zeke went to the NFL. And he's from Missouri.
So the fact that he moved to Ohio, then is taking a job at TOSU after his son is in Texas speaks volumes about his character. I see him becoming a great face for the University like Archie.
Some coach will not understand this. They're busy climbing trees.
Historically we've had trouble recruiting in California. USC, UCLA, Cal, Stanford, Oregon and UW are all able to use distance as an advantage.
Not so now. The Urban Meyer Magnet is very strong. Not only will one play for championships, but there is a clear focus on life after football at a top university.
Great to have an Elliott sticking around the program. Stacy bought into the Buckeye Family 110%, not just being an ambassador in the Stadium, but for being a good-natured participant on 11W and posting hilarious videos on YouTube.
This also sends a very positive message to recruits. TOSU is truly a family-oriented program. The families of the players stick around.
Yeah, Archie Griffin tells a story that when Woody visited him at home, Woody did not mention football once. He talked about life and education. It left Archie a bit baffled.
The challenge is that there are other programs with a glaring need at QB *cough* TTUN *cough*. Though I'm happy to see they're not on the crystal ball predictions.
I was an Econ major at TOSU. It's a good way to look at it.
The problem is there is nearly unlimited demand for tickets. We have the largest CFB fanbase in the country, estimated at around 3.2 million people. Add to that the majority of the 11 million Ohioans who root for the Buckeyes above all other sports, pro or college, whether or not they attended TOSU.
Heck, I live in Seattle. I had a friend from TOSU visit me recently. We got 4 "OH" callouts from strangers about 4 hours, just because I had a Buckeye Nuthouse shirt on. It's unreal. At every away game I've attended (UW, Cal, Maryland) Buckeye fans were 35-50% of the fans in the stands.
The athletic department understands this: Seats in the Horseshoe are basically a money printing press. What I lament is that there will be fewer and fewer families attending games. I've had the privilege of seeing games with my Dad since I was 5 years old. Not many families can afford a full season now, especially with the "premium" pricing for the desirable games.
DJ is bringing the hate, hate, hate ...
I just love seeing football in the Horseshoe. The season cannot arrive soon enough. Go Bucks!
The cost of tickets has got to play a factor. If you're married with kids it's hard to justify paying $200-300+ just to take your family to a game you can see on TV.
Part of the reason we can get 100,000 fans in the Shoe for the spring game is because it's affordable for families.
