Let's put together 4 quarters like the first one last week.  Leave no doubt we're nothing less than the 2nd best team in the nation.

Comment 27 Aug 2013

I think about 5 out of the 60 above posts have Buffalo covering the spread.  I'm be with the majority in Vegas this weekend.  63-17

Comment 22 Aug 2013

Yes, but no charges = 1 games or 3 games.  Don't get me wrong, I agree with the suspensions completely.  I'd just much rather have a coach like Urban where we establish a discipline system that's more than necessary.

This doesn't mean Ohio State or the other 150 schools the Collegiate Licensing Company represents won't appear in the game, it just means that EA can't put the B1G, SEC, & PAC 10, and the NCAA logo in the game. 

Comment 12 Aug 2013

According to Tim Brando this morning, we'll be playing Louisville on January 6th in Pasadena.  I'm sure no one on here would argue with playing then and there.  Although I think it's a bit outlandish to assume the entire SEC will have at least 2 losses and Louisville holds up, crazier things have happened.

Best part, especially after the last couple weeks:

"Jadeveon Clowney doesn't go out at night because he doesn't want stuff...Braxton is the same way"

Anything comparisons of any of our players, in anyway, to Jadeveon Clowney (link not necessary), are welcome.

Furthermore, after this, I'd be perfectly fine to have Ohio State not mentioned in any form on ESPN until the season starts.  Can't win games, no good can come.

If you're going to risk watching the game a sports bar, you run the risk of not having the game sound, or the sound up loud enough.  Depending on where you are, the odds of that happening are slimmer and slimmer.  As much as I can't stand a few of the crews they have broadcasting games these days, much of the necessary information (i.e. injury reports, referee explainations, etc.) can't really be understood without the audio.  Thankfully 11W posts the game watch sites, which I've been fortunate enough to experience a couple of them during my autumn travels.  Those have been a great atmosphere, but watching the game at home is always a safe bet. 

Comment 24 Jan 2013

This makes me curious as to how much more if this has been undocumented between college coaches.  The resumes of most college head coaches is as diverse as Urban's; I can only imagine some of the uglier unreported stories and the grudges that exist that aren't spoken of. 

Comment 17 Jan 2013

It will be interesting to see how this affects his draft stock.  If I'm in the front office in the NFL and any proof comes out that he was somehow involved, there's no way I touch this guy.  Even in the current NFL that's full of convicts, this would be a PR nightmare trying to sell this draft pick to your fans. 

Comment 17 Jan 2013

Great post by USMC11917.  I was one the first to jump on the "Lyin' Hawaiian" bandwagon, when I realized the potential negative impact this could have on Notre Dame's program.  Now thinking about it, a driving force is probably because it feels like payback for the seemingly endless OSU bashing we all suffered through that ended the Tressel era.  My biggest issue with this story has been TWWL's pathetic job of objectively covering this story.  I'm aware they have to cover themselves here as well, but it just continues to fuel my disgust for the inobjectivity we've grown so accustom to from them. 

Comment 16 Jan 2013

A few more playmakers wouldn't have hurt at times this year.  It looks like with Urban we're not going to have to worry too much about quality either.  At the end of the day, Chip Kelly to the Eagles may have the most impact for my teams, and that's coming from a Browns fan. 

Comment 11 Dec 2012

Craft was a scorer in high school (at Liberty-Benton) out of necessity.  With Ohio Red he essentially played the same game there that he has his first two years at OSU.  His game was always predicated on layups and jumpers the foul line/elbow.  His high school team was in division 3, so he was able to get a lot more good looks and layups over smaller, weaker defenders.  He'll never have the same ability to create his own shot, the way the Ross's or Buford's of the world can, but that being said, his game as-is definitely has a spot in the offense and he is far and away the best passer on the team.  For this team to make a deep run in March, I believe Craft has to be the primary ball handler, not so much to develop his own offensive game, but to improve others' off-the-ball games and the overall chemistry of the offensive.
