  • SPORTS MOMENT: I was part of some really good high school football teams while at Grove City. We were near the top rankings in the state and country. My junior year we played Troy who had Ryan Brewer. It was an offensive slugfest that we wone 43-45, but it was amazing! Ryan Brewer scored about 4-5 different ways. My senior year we went undefeated and were ranked #1 in OH, #6 in the country before we lost in the playoffs in the 2nd round. We played a big game vs Canton McKinley and a couple games in the Crew's stadium. Insane atmospshere!

1) We are loaded at the DE in this class, so while he is a big loss, we can handle it. I think Bosa and Cooper have more upside and are better suited for our needs. I thought that Hall could be converted to a LB as he seems more athletic.

2) I honestly think he was scared of competition. By having two other STUDS at your position, in your class... it makes you rethink your desire to "fight" for the position. Maybe he thinks somewhere else ('Bama) would be better for him.

3) If he's being disrespectful now, imagine what he'd be like on his own in college. If he doesn't have the heart to be a Buckeye, then maybe this isn't the best place for him.

With all that being said, these are young kids that are getting a lot of attention. Things can be taken the wrong way and we don't know what he's thinking. Wish him the best, but if you ain't with us... you against us!! Go Bucks!!

Any more news about a concert or something on the Sunday before the game? Don't know if we just rumors or if VT was really setting up a prep rally concert with a major band.

All teams have a bad 1-10% that give the rest a bad reputation (although it does seem that some have a LOT more: TTUN & pSU)!! I went to the OSU and Texas game about 10 years ago in Columbus and was ashamed at how some Texas fans were treated. The following year I went to Austin for the OSU game and was shocked by how great Texas fans were. Really was an eye opener!! I hope that VT fans were treated right when they went to Columbus last year and I hope all goes well in Blacksburg this year between our fans.

Really, it would come down to our backups and our 2/3 string run game. When you get up by 70, you might get looked at unfavorably if you are still passing it. If you were "running out the clock", but still scoring TD's... then people wouldn't mind. Those 2/3 stringers deserve to play too and not just "take a knee" throughout the final quarters. So, it would take amazing D (check), great backups (check) and an amazing backup running game (check).

I think we can do it, but if we did... I hope that it comes against TTUN!!

Reporter: "Why did you continue to go for it and score points after you were up 80-0 over TTUN?"

Urban: "Well, we were trying to be good sportsmen and weren't trying to break the 100 point barrier. Things changed when were up 93-0, and Hairball took off his shirt and chased my walk-on RB into the endzone... so we scored. We took that as an insult, so we went for two to make it 101-0!!"

I actually think that VT are a lot better team then people think. If you take away the bad loss to Miami (7-30), they lost 5 games by a combined 19 points. They had a lot of injuries and return a good portion of the team.

I do think they end the year ranked as they dodge a lot of ACC heavyweights (if there is such a thing) and get most of their tougher games at home.
 

With that being said, I don't think that they will beat us. I do think it will be a closer game than people think, especially with it being an away game in an electric environment. I live in VA and people are pumped up for this game! That stadium is going to be rocking and with the new suspensions, it just might give the Hokies a sliver of hope or confidence. We are too talented to let them beat us, but the more we let them stick around the more confident they get and the louder the crowd will get. Get on them early, build a good lead and get out with the "W"! Also, I think Braxton scores/responsible for AT LEAST 2 TD's (includes passing). Go Bucks!

Also, don't forget that if there are more players in trouble, they couldn't committed less severe issues and had it taken care of "in house".

Comment 30 Jul 2015

They would announce them all at once, hence these suspensions seem to already be grouped all into one (apparently this was two groups: players that smoked weed and then academic issues). I doubt we will find out what the issue really was, but they'd announce all at once.

Funny, the S&P rankings are flawed. One of the variables in his "formula" is the 2014 ranking. Of course, OSU is #1 BUT he has Alabama listed as #2 and Oregon as #3. Not sure how that is when Bama would be #3 or #4!

Comment 30 Jul 2015

You mean 4-5

-mSU

-One other team that will climb into the rankings(pSU, Minny, VATech, "TTUN")

-Wisky (B1G Championship)

-Playoff Game 1

-National Championship

Comment 30 Jul 2015

How in the world could somebody NOT vote for OSU #1?? 'Bama and TCU??? I would love to see the votes and see who voted for them and I wouldn't be surprised if they voted for themselves!!

Comment 30 Jul 2015

The black unis are coming, at least for one game! It's only a matter of time. The players want it, the recruits will love it, Urban isn't against it, a good portion of fans want it, we are the program in the national spotlight right now and we need more mannequins in the athletic facility to scare the players!!

Just...go to campus, pick up an easy, smash....and there is your high

I had to upvote you, just for this simple statement!

If they don't already, they should get personalized plates... Zeke15, OSURB15 or MVP 2015! Something along those lines!! I would hope that the ticketing ninja's would let them slide! 

Comment 30 Jun 2015

Well, I'm shocked he doesn't have his own "forever" parking spot!! All-Americans get a Buckeye Tree in Buckeye Grove... Heisman winners get a lot of perks, including reserved parking and shuttle service around campus... for life!!

Anybody order any jerseys recently? Finally getting around to order a "12 Gauge" or "Elliot" championship jersey and looking for a good merchant. Worried about sizing and sleeve length.

This is widely considered true, but the official flag etiquette is very vague and doesn't mention shirts.

Flag Etiquette states that the blue field just has to be at the top, not which side. However, it does say, "When displaying the flag against a wall, vertically or horizontally, the flag's union (stars) should be at the top, to the flag's own right, and to the observer's left."

FYI, the flag patch is displayed "backwards" on the sleeves of US Military Uniforms in some situations. The blue field is supposed to be facing the front direction (as in when the person in walking forward).

You might want to contact the DC Alumni Group. I'm sure they will be setting up a trip down there. They might be getting a bus or something like that??
