It may be a little quick to judge Devin based on the Spring Game. No Braxton, and half the starting OLine not playing, the offense was not much to look at. Braxton has shown he will look for Devin on some deep balls, and normally that is successful. Devin may not have as many catches this year, due to the number of players wanting the ball, but I still think he will have 7-8 TDs due to his speed on deep balls.

The kid will certainly need some polishing, but I do not think the staff is looking for him to come in and play from day 1. We have a pretty good QB coach, and I think some time learning the game and working on mechanics with Herman will help alot. His upside, in my opinion, far outweighs his "flaws". Not to mention the fact he is such a highly rated player, other recruits will be drawn to play with him.

I like this move for Dontre. We have a full stable of true, bigger RBs, and are recruiting future stars at the position as well. This gives us an elite playmaker in the middle of the field from the slot.

Also, considering I have the #2 jersey (which I bought in the Malcom Jenkins era, got lucky when T.P. got it, and loved CB / RDS wearing it recently) I am glad to see the number getting passed down to another "should be" playmaker.

Yes, this song is absolutely cheesy. But I absolutely love it. Growing up as a young kid where I couldn't get enough sports, this song is one memory that will always stay with me. To the day, this song to end the college basketball season gives me chills.

Nope, Urban told his staff to take an extra long vacation this year.

Bold preditction: Western Michigan beats Syracuse. The 3/14 matchup has given us some great upsets in recent history, and Cuse enters this game playing about as poorly as it has all year.. Broncos over Cuse!

 If the Buckeyes get past UD, they should have a much easier matchup for yet another trip to the sweet 16, where they will get a chance at revenge against Kansas.

Couldn't watch live today, and despite knowing the outcome, just finished watching on DVR. Couple things stood out to me:

1.Wow, Michigan was lights out shooting the 3 ball. Especially in the 1st half. Extremely impressed OSU was able to come back after taking multiple punches in the gut, but that has been the memo all year..

2. Wow, Lenzelle was bad today. Did he make a 3? I know he didn't make any of the many wide open looks he had.

3. Shannon Scott was terrific. Would love to see him take some of that confidence into the NCAA tourney, and into his senior year next year.

4. Finally, and most importantly, the game was completely changed when an ice cold Craft came off the bench, and decided to become our first offensive option on almost every possession. I love the guy. He has had an incredible career, and he will be greatly missed, but he has to be smarter than that. He sat the bench for a while. Not that he was in any type of a groove before he went to the bench, but dang. I know he hit a big time shot for us last year in the NCAA, but still, I do not think him pulling up for an outside jumper is our best look to end a game.

I agree completely. I would like to see Braxton limit his runs to situations when we HAVE to have a big play. Obviously, to be successful we will need him to make big plays. But with the weapons he will have around him this year, I would like to see him distribute first, and second, look for the run as a 3rd option.

I have always loved the #3. I hope Mike Thomas and all of his swag and trash talk  balls out in it this year.

There is life outside of 11W? Damn, I wonder how much I have been missing...

Comment 03 Mar 2014

Man, there seems to be more storylines in this spring than I can remember in a long , long time.

Besides the 5 listed above, there are other pretty significant issues. Who will emerge as the starting RB? How will the defense look under Ask? The battle at Middle LB is going to be pretty heated, as both Grant and Kwon seem to believe they are the guy.

Comment 17 Feb 2014

BuckNuts wants people to continue to think they have to pay for top notch information. A lie that all true 11Ws have already figured out...

We will never know if playing this season would have changed Mike's mind. I am guessing it wouldn't. It is clear the Mitchell's love tOSU, as they have sent both their sons to Columbus. I am assuming his father's health is the sole reason for his leaving.

As far as the redshirts, I agree I was suprised at how many players redshirted. However, I also know the injury to Mike did set him back as far as his development. I like to pretend that I know everything about football. But sadly, I do not. I want to believe that the coaches will play the best players, no matter what their age. I am going to choose to believe this. If I don't believe it, I will drive myself insane questioning every play call and personel package. With that being said, I think if Mike, or Apple, or whomever, was ready to play, they would play.
