Jerry Kill is another Marty Schottenheimer. He personally ruined Minnesota's game. I hope they get rid of him. If you watched the Missouri bowl game Minnesota had the ball as the first half wound down. They did not call a play in. The players on the field were clearly impatient with what is taking so long. And that arrogant smug asshole then told the sideline reporter "we get it in the second half" when the players were clearly upset at him breaking the momentum. And then you have UFM recanting what Holtz said and all of you know about taking momentum into halftime. That idiot killed it, no pun intended. I actually felt bad for those kids for a bit.

Speaking of Missouri, there is nothing "legit" about 5 downs.

is the most dynamic athlete of the three, 

That is not the primary tool to I would use to judge for starting. JT Barrett is the best decision maker of the three, is more than good enough as a passer and a very solid runner. Sure, he doesn't run like Miller. But who does besides Reggie Bush?  Stretching the defense deep is also not needed. Just having competent passing so the safeties and corners can not cheat against the run is the objective. In the Paul Brown offense, called the west coast offense today, balance is the name of the game. Barrett being able to move the chains over and over is the best asset. Something that Jones did very well himself.

Even as Ohio State lost championships to teams that were smarter, faster, and more creative than them, I shut my ear holes and eye holes and hoped and prayed that Our Dear Leader Jim Tressel would lead us out of this wasteland with a combination of off-tackle rushing plays and a funeral dirge of a defense that suffocated all light and happiness out of the universe.

And then he won the Rose Bowl, shutting down an Oregon offense that scored about 50+ a game during their last 8 games. And then he outsmarted and beat the SEC in the Sugar Bowl by throwing to tight ends over the middle for huge gains when Petrino was looking in the stands at his mistress instead of Stoneburner.

Gerry DiNardo is easily my favorite person that loathes TOSU. He said this back when Anderson left. He knew he could not compete after the 59-0 beating with the academic standards the school has. I like DiNardo, and all of the Big Ten Network analysts for that matter. You can not like the school and still be honest about how good they are.

Am I the only one that rates Mark Schlabach in the same category as Mark May and Trev Alberts? Darron Lee just misses the cut. Afterall, being the only one to take away meaningful offense from the Heisman Trophy winner is no reason to make the list of the best players in the country. All the defenders that gave up 50-60 points, sure, put them in. But not the one who contained the uncontainable.

I thought Shazier's new uniform colors were Black and Yellow.

Comment 15 Jan 2015

I have been thinking more like 1968. Much more like them with the super sophs. And they had a new coach in 1969. And they have a new coach this year in the mold of him that did it to the Buckeyes in 1969. All faith in UFM we don't die of heart attacks the last week of November.

For the conspiracy side, the Senator won 4 playoff championships during a 9 year run. Manufacturing a scandal to get rid of him was necessary to promote the SEC-ESPN model with the playoff coming. *Cash for tattoos scandal*? How else should they get them? At gun point?

After taking over in the first season which was a getting the feet wet season, the Buckeyes were 101-18 with him on the sideline. That is a salty .86 win percentage. Not that the first season doesn't count, it is just where he was taking it following Rose and Sugar bowl wins in back to back seasons. Games they were *supposed* to lose.

 The Bucks do need to dish out a heavy dosage of Tressel Ball. In that game against the Ducks team that thrashed USC, he called equal run and pass plays.

Comment 05 Jan 2015

Jeff George and Ryan Mallet make up a much larger pool of NFL QBs that can throw it out of the stadium, where as Bret Favre is a much shorter list. The hardest team to stop is one that can move the chains and you can't stop them. And it keeps their offense off the field. Beat Oregon? No problem. Tresselball at its finest followed that recipe. Having the deep ball is indeed a threat and keeps defense honest, but it is secondary.

John Cooper, of all people, was right. BCS plus one is all that was needed. You can't really complain about the two best playing somewhere other than the championship. That happens. And in 1985 when Gerogetown and St Johns were in the semi final instead of final, we were all wrong. The switch over to a more heavy weighted poll existed for the purpose of getting LSU and Bama together in the final game. What started out good, turned into a racket.
