Maybe I'm crazy but I think that OSU or PSU cleaning up on their states top talent makes their recruiting pitch better. If we take #1 and #2 out of New Jersey and or MD, then their friends/rivals, the 3 and four star players, should be more inclined to go play for Rutgers or MD. All theory no proof, but its how I feel about the situation. Those schools will always have trouble retaining their top talent.
Lets hope D'angelo Russell makes it big in the NBA. We could a more media centric NBA star. Not a knock on Conley or the others, actually more of a compliment, but it would be nice to also have a big personality guy too.
I'm very excited for what Jayln Holmes has to offer. I feel like he's a beast that's been hidden in the shadows waiting for his time.
Just remember... 0-5 - the bowl record for schools from the state of Alabama since 2012. It's not working too well.
I would like to see more data come out about B1G Hockey revenues and TV deals. On the surface it looks like in a few years we could be seeing upwards of $3-5 million in hockey profits pumping into the Big Ten programs.
Wouldn't be the first time they've lost to an FCS school.
It might be difficult for Zeke to get to Eddie's number this year considering most of the 200+yd games here were big games or close games. It doesn't seem like we have too many of those next year.
Kareem Walker's teammates know how to block. (this is not a knock on Kareem)
If Cardale is gone, and I think he will be, we NEED both Braxton and JT. I don't care who starts, they will both play meaningful minutes. Remember Kenny Guiton or that fact that we needed three QB's this year.
Thank you Houston for letting him coach.
We built and OHIO team. Maybe the media can narrate that.
Go out on top Cardale!
This guy dominated the team's attention so much that sometimes their offense would appear to be defenders.
I hope it is Buckeye dominant, but I also hope it doesn't sell out. Not selling out a Championship will be good for the fan in the future.
This will also be each of the team's third "must see" road game in a row. If you have the money you probably don't have the time, if you have the time you probably don't have the money. I've said it since day one that an eight team playoff better come with $100 or less face value tickets. $490 for upper deck tickets to a stadium thousands of miles away is not a way to get fans in seats unless its the one and only big game of the year.
If it happens at least we can say Big Ten back-ups transfer to SEC schools. SEC back-ups transfer to Sun Belt schools.
I'm predicting Oregon will hit the market with unsold tickets for sure. There are too many seats, too high of prices, and an away game last week for both fan bases. The Buckeyes have an NFL sized market share, but I just don't see how Oregon fills that many seats. I don't see OSU filling that void on its own either.
I want to downvote, but that would be taking it out on FairfaxBuckeye.
Now they will respond by poisoning Buckeye Grove
With those obesity rates, it's their one opportunity to move quickly.
I've been waiting all week to hear of who is newly suspended/injured/sick/kicked off the team and this is all we got? The tide is turning.
I'm sure this guy has SEC speed. Was he really out of breath from just talking?
I would be very unlikely to see a 6-6 SEC team like Arkansas down by two scores to 8 win MAC school like Toledo. Majority of the Big Ten has a lot of work to do to consider themselves part of a "power conference."
For the first time I want to see the B1G perform terribly in these early bowl games. Hopefully it will lead to Bama puffing out their chests a little more leading up to our game.
