Ohio State destroyed an Elite Eight team (Florida) on the road, and another Sweet 16 team (FSU) on the road. They blew out Purdue and Wisconsin by epic amounts at home. They clearly had the talent to go farther than they did. They underachieved in the tournament, and I am disappointed.
Anybody else notice the fans cheering a little when Sully looked injured? Classy as ever, penn state fans....
I will admit it. I was wrong. I thought for sure at least one of them would. However, I am very pleasantly surprised.
That really is great news. Our secondary was looking pretty thin next year with Hines, Chekwa, and Torrence graduating. But more importantly, good for Tyler. If anybody deserves something like that, he does.
I was about to ask if anyone knew why Shugarts was taken out (straight benching or due to injury). I was at the game and nobody around me knew. He was getting abused early, and I think Norwell did a fine job when he came in.
Marty Bannister did an interview with him before the game on The Fan, I caught it as I was driving to the game. Paul said he is out of the hospital now and doing well, and hopes to be back soon.
I almost couldn't believe the title of your post when I read it. My 9th grade Spanish class watched that movie, and ever since, whenever a situation arose in which somebody we know or some team we rooted for has needed to step up for any type of occasion, my friends and I have said they needed "the ganas".
Jaime Escalante has been the most influential movie-teacher of our lives. I can't believe other people have seen that movie. Thank you for bringing it up, and especially in a way that relates to the Buckeyes. Well done, Sir.
I agree that Buckeye fans think that the media hates Ohio State because the members of the media that do hate Ohio State are so vocal about it (Mark May and Desmond Howard).
What I don't understand is why no media outlet seems to mention Oklahoma's recent BCS record, because it is much worse than anybody's, especially Ohio State's.
I did not forget about Conley. He came in when Butler was a junior, then left after one year, so Butler ran the point as a senior, on the team that won the NIT. I should have mentioned them both, but Butler was the last true point to play here because he stayed all for years. And I think this team is going to be very tough to beat, and very deep.
Matta has used the bench before, at least 3 deep, just not recently. With the talent on next year's team, I can see 9 guys (last year's returning starters + all 5 incoming freshman) getting minutes.
I have no issue with running the trick play against EMU. At the very worst it gave the offense a chance to practice it in an actual game, and now forces opposing defenses to prepare for such plays. Even if a team can now easily identify the play based on film, does anyone think that a DB can cover Pryor one on one? Because I sure don't.
I have also wondered where all the praise for Adams is coming from. It's not like he has been bad or anything, but to me at least, he has clearly preformed the worst out of our starting o-line thus far.
Thanks. And I only caught the highlights of that game, but I bet it made a lot of Buckeye fans very happy.
Ha ha. So Ian forwarded that email to you, as well. So close to being mentioned on ESPN Radio. That would have been awesome. Hooley is a dream killer, man.
I'm with Jason. Our return guys have some game changing abilities, but I was at the OU game, sitting behind the endzone. Julian Posey had a huge hole to run through, and had OU not committed a penalty on the play, it might not have mattered.
Also, while Barclay has been a great field goal guy so far, we need a kicker who can consistently get the ball inside the 10 on kickoffs.
I did, in fact, forget that. Just puts even more emphasis on the fact that Ohio breeds big time coaches. Thanks for the tip.
