Congrats. That was the changing point in my life/maturity when my son was born. It will be trying and stressful at times but all completely worth it. I'll never forget that day. A couple hours after he was born I held him and watched the Buckeyes beat Penn St. Perfect day.

My favorite was Rick's "I came here thinking about how many of you I was going to have to kill" speech.

I agree with most of it but I think Kareem Walker is the rb, Haussman is the te, Dante Booker/Justin Hilliard at olb and Erick Smith is the safety. Bell will probably leave and also Lee. Don't put it past Barrett to go if he starts and has another great year. That would open up a huge qb battle with a lot of young talent.

I like the TP comparison above and its very fitting. I myself see a more polished passing Braxton in Tristen Wallace. He might be a hybrid of the 2. If so I would take him over any qb in this class. If you think we have a qb situation now imagine in 2017 if we get Wallace. There would be JT (if he stays for a rs senior year), Stephen Collier, Torrance Gibson, Joe Burrow, Tristen Wallace and Danny Clark.

I-O. Another great pickup on and off the field for this team. I'm glad that his ACL is coming along good. It sounds like he has a good grasp on what he wants and he's going to go get it. Welcome to Buckeye nation AJ.

At least I can stand Kevin Harlan and Reggie Miller. They're better than Lundquist, Rafferty and a few other names on that list.

Cowboys fan here. Unless a trade is made for Adrian Peterson, all reports are they want Melvin Gordon. I'm ok with that pick with our o line. If they get Peterson then I would like them to get d line help with Bennett or another dt to go with Crawford. After that its kind of a wash because other than o line and wr they need everything.

It's great to see former players having an impact on their communities, not just their team. Seeing him playing with the kids and interacting with the fans shows his character.

I've coached little league baseball, different levels of basketball and helped with junior high football.

As I said below, I still believe he's a good coach, but it looks like the team quit on him. I know he's under a lot of pressure and hindsight is 20/20. I'm not claiming to be a better choice, nor did i call for him to be fired. In my experience in coaching, I would've handled it differently. I would've sat Shannon Scott for his lack of effort defensively because Kam Williams was blowing him away in effort when he was on the court. I would've also subbed Bates-Diop for Sam Thompson and tell Sam "you're having a rough night, let's see if he can get us some points. If not, you're going back in. Give it a couple minutes." There's a lot of different ways to have handled this game differently. Matta could've put Bates-Diop at the 5. He's long enough to hamper Kaminsky and then Kaminsky would have to wear himself out chasing him on defense. We did that all last year and even against Hammons with Laquinton Ross. It just seemed like his strong loyalty to the seniors has blinded him at times this whole year.
