Good post. 

So-called "fans" need to realize that players, recruits and their families are on this site regularly.

When people rip into the players and coaches they tarnish the reputation of the program and potentially scare recruits away.

Buckeye Nation has always had high expectations, but some people take it way too far.

I'm with you for the most part.

In my opinion the coaches are trying too hard to distribute the ball to playmakers so they're getting "cute" with their formations and alignments to feature certain players.

We generally need the offense to look the same but you don't know who or what is going to hit you.  I like change-ups and new formations but not if it signals "Braxton's getting the ball".

These morons need to understand that they're dealing with a student who busts his ass for them on Saturdays. And he has a daughter to care for. WTF?

Good points.  I still don't understand the Florida jilted-lover syndrome.  I talked to some Florida girls the other day -- they keep claiming "He left the cupboard bare". 

No, sorry, Will Muschamp was just an inferior head coach.  That's why he's a coordinator again. Urban, on the other hand, blew out Missouri 2 times with Bowling Green, went 12-0 with Utah and was the best coach Florida ever had.

Add to that the fact that he left Florida before TatGate brought down Tressel and the OSU job came open.  He really did just step away, and the Florida fans are still bitter. I just don't get it.

You have to take early season wins with a grain of salt. Teams have months to prepare. I call it the "Boise State effect" -- Boise would get up for big OOC games early in the season or OOC bowl games, but now that Chris Peterson is at Washington with legitimate competition every week he's not doing so well.

Losing Devin Smith has hurt us. Now teams can just focus on Michael Thomas, as Jalin Marshall and Corey Smith aren't consistent yet.

We may need to go to the bench to see if there are other players who can reliably catch the ball to take pressure off Thomas.

While I want to see TTUN look like a children's interpretative dance that goes horribly wrong ...

... We have to take them seriously if we're going to beat them down in Ann Whorbore.

There is always a "danger game".  In Urban's tenure: Purdue@TOSU in 2012, OSU@TTUN in 2013, OSU@VT in 2014, etc. etc.

I need a pace-maker for these games, but they are going to happen all year when your'e #1. Wer'e not going to sneak up on anyone :)

This is what I'm trying to get at.

College sports are College sports -- 18 -23 year old kids playing a game and going to school.  Grown fans getting angry and yelling at the kids is weird and inappropriate.

I still remember Ryan Hamby getting death threats from fans for dropping the TD pass against Texas.  Absolutely wrong.

I meant no offense.

My point was NOT that only alumni should attend -- I welcome anyone from anywhere and I love having our massive fan base (the largest in CFB) !

It's more that ALL fans should recognize that they represent the university when they step in to the stadium or go to their local bar.

I also meant that $79 a ticket and having the #1 team in the nation leads to having scalpers and band-wagon fans.  If you've been following for 35 years, great!  My brother has been following the team for 41 years and only got through 2 quarters of TOSU.

I guess I'm just saying:  Everyone be a good fan. Represent.
