No way that's Cardales johnson...He has way bigger stones than that....and they're titanium.

Comment 23 Jan 2015

Well, after watching last night's game against one of the poorer teams in the B1G, I have a couple of thoughts....

#1. There is no upper classmen leadership on this team. None. Natta. Shannon Scott is persona-non-grata, Sam Thompson can not shoot, which, after 4 years, tells me a little bit about the shooting coach (fair to say they miss Chris Jent), Amir Williams looks as lost as a child's 1st thoughts, and Mark Loving is slower than an ox. Somebody please light a fire under that kid (not to mention Amir). Loving does not rebound, he does not move w/o the ball on offense...they just stand around for the D'Angelo Russell show. I will promise you Aaron Craft, David Lighty, Jon Diebler, Jared Sullinger would never have put up with this kind of effort from team-mates, especially on defense!

#2. I would love to see Matta shake the line-up even more. Find 5 guys that want to play and play them. Tate certainly wants to play, let's see if Camryn Williams wants to play and Bates-Dip and let's go!!!!

And a reminder to all to put RichRod on our christmas card list, as it was his ascension to the UM throne that brought the Boren's here in the first place. You think about it, at that time, that had to be a difficult pill for Mike Boren to swallow. But thank God he did, b/c the Buckeyes have been the better for it for the past seven years.

Dude....That is so Freakin awesome!!!!! Now, I am really fired up...Tell him he has a friend in the drug business in Cincinnati...Go Bucks!!

Comment 09 Jan 2015

The thing is...Oregon plays so quickly....you just have to make the tackle and be ready to go for the next play right away. It would be fair to say the Buckeyes are not used to that pace...so hopefully they have practiced that b/c it can be tough if you are not accustomed to it. And we are the best team Oregon has seen for sure. Go Bucks.

Good to see you are back M Man, hope you had a nice Christmas season. I imagine Coach Harbaugh will be more than just watching the game, he will be scouting the game. Then, he will go home and (as most new coaches taking over a sloughful program would do) have horrible diarrhea for 3 days wondering how in the world is he ever going to beat a team like that with the guys he has now? Answer: He probably won't. But because he is a winner (sorry buckeye nation, just calling it like it is), he won't sulk too long...he will hit that recruiting trail hard and realize he has got to recruit faster kids. Then he will develop a culture at U of M of accountability, resposibility and passion maybe not seen since Bo's days. And the New 10 year war will be on....Man am I excited...hope you are too. Go Bucks.

I think tere are two keys to beating Oregon, and they are similar to the keys Tress needed to beat them in the Rose Bowl

#1: The Defense has to be in excellent shape because of the hurry up that Oregon runs. You have to make the tackle and be prepared to line up and go...there can be an advantage to this...they do not hard count much...they just hike it and go which is great for guys like Bosa and Bennett.

#2: Do not play this game with your ego. When it is 4th and short (especially early), take the points as often as it is presented to you. Oregon goes for 2 after almost every touchdown and hardly ever kicks field goals. What are the odds that their kicker is mentally prepared to kick a late game, long field goal to tie or win the game. Late in the game, situations may require going for it on 4th. The point is "Be smarter and play smarter".

And Go Bucks!!!!!

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!

Comment 01 Dec 2014

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!

Comment 30 Nov 2014

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.

Comment 25 Nov 2014

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.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

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.
