Have fun in the process...embrace it. Just keep in mind, a degree from The Ohio State University carries a ton of weight. We also have one of the largest Alumni Associations in the world, which can be helpful for that "40 year plan" you referred to.

As an alumnus of a large Jesuit high school a little south of you in Cincinnati and a graduate of Ohio State (couldn't go to Notre Dame...they did not have a Pharmacy School) I can assure you I made a good decision. My father was right (again) when he told me as a senior not to worry about making the right decision. "You make the decision...then YOU make it right...anything else is the tail wagging the dog and I didn't send you to St. X to be a follower."

Pretty good advice to a 17 year old kid who couldn't find his rear end with both hands. Think about it and best of luck to you.

My Daddy used to say people cuss b/c they have nothing more intelligent to say...I rest my case!

I have confidence in Cardale to manage this game, but it is fair to say the defense is really going to have to show up and deliver. That will give Cardale a little more confidence early, which he may need.

Birm...

Any thoughts on OSU talking with a few select Nebraska recruits (other than Jurkovic).

Thanks for the hotline assist and prayers to Kosta's family. As a Pharmacist, I see depression every day to varying degree's. Sometime's it's tough to get folks to see that tomorrow is another day. Sometimes the best you can do is just hang on. But I always promise my customer's, the sun is going to come out, and it will shine on you if you are there to see it, just hang in there...talk to me or someone else. Very sad.

And a huge Thank You to all the Support Staff that help these guys with their class work. How tough must it be to have the B1G Championship coming up and these guys have Finals coming up at the same time. Thanks Everybody and Go Bucks!

Tell us how you really feel Slum...Classic!

It's like I have been saying (since this summer) about Brian Kelly...just watch him on the sideline berate guys coming off the field. If I were a parent of a D-1 recruit, I would not even let my son talk to ND. Have you ever bought a used car from somebody and 20 minutes after the deal was finished...you wish you hadn't....well, that "somebody" was Brian Kelly.

Dude...What is the guy saying in that song...honestly...that is not music...that is the rant of a drug-fueled high school sophomore who could not find his rear end with both hands. You can keep it if you want, but that music does not get me fired up. How about something with a quick beat to get folks jumping around a little bit...just a thought.

And frankly, we are not getting a whole lot of pressure on the QB on third down with the 4 man rush. I am guessing Ash is doing that to keep more guys in passing lanes and improve the pass defense but at some point, you gotta send the "Kitchen sink" blitz from 2002.

Did you hear that SEC....He said "meaningful degree"....I love it. Congratulations, Brandon. Welcome to the family. There is life after football and a degree from The Ohio State University networks you directly to over 500,000 active Alumni in every field of work. The world is your oyster son...get some Tabasco sauce and enjoy!

Comment 17 Nov 2014

Congratulations. There is nothing like having a baby. I remember realizing that I could not keep using the same stupid excuses for doing silly things after our son was born....time to grow up. But that was cool b/c it was time to stop dorking around and make something of myself. Still not sure if I have succeeded but...

Sounds about right Knar...and to stop the run we needt o have more than 4 guys getting reps on the D-line. Like Urbz said, the 2nd teamers need to step to the fore and man-up. We need some production from them so the 1st teamers can get a little break...that would help tremendously.

We have got to stop turning the ball over. As I now believe Wisconsin is the team to beat in the West...think about what a game may look like against them if we lose the turnover battle. They control the ball and use the run to set up the pass. Another reason why the 2nd team D-line needs to step-up!

We have to find someone who can return kicks and catch punts. I do not care if they return punts...just fair catch them. We will haveto  keep Wiscy's offense off the field. That Gordon kid is pretty good.

Go Bucks!

When you know in your heart of hearts that you are better (and of coure, OSU is way better than UM), you don't have to be a douche bag or do douche-baggy things....all you have to do is keep kicking their ass. I, for one, hope UM comes back strong. I like beating them, but I like it better when we upset them. Those are the games I remember. I would never allow my son to do something like that.

I think it is always safe to wish an athlete "good luck" on their game that weekend and to mention something about the weather for the game (Supposed to be a scorcher at game time or Don't forget your thermals, something with a litle humour to it). Then, they realize you're not a douche bag and the next time they see you, maybe they will have something to say to you.

And Iowa...I know they struggled against Minny but they are Jekyl and Hyde...If the good team shows up that friday after Thanksgiving...it could be interesting. Frankly, I will really be interested to watch Neb offense vs Wiscy Defense Saturday...I think Wiscy takes 'em....

Comment 09 Nov 2014

A quick question for everyone? Can Braxton make that 3rd and 23 pass that JT made? And please, do not read anything into the question, I am simply asking...wondering what everyone thinks. That pass was Money, boys! And maybe the turning point early in the game when we had a little trouble getting out of our own way.
