Ramzy,

Great article as always! Great job and keep on writing! You are truly one of the best wordsmiths, and artists, I have ever read.

Thanks!

P.S. I do follow you on Twitter and I think we are a bit different in our political leanings. That being said, I would to read some of your #hottakes on our current political environment in more than 140 characters at a time. Does such a place exist and if not, can it?

I mean Haskell Garrett and Jerron Cage are both top 15 DT's so it's not like we are starved for elite DT's. 

I agree Soul! Yes, I really wanted Marvin Wilson to commit to the Buckeyes, but, I think we are doing guys like Garrett, Cage, Malik Barrow a huge disservice by forgetting about them. All of these guys are great players in their own right so let's give them the attention and chance they deserve. Let's not forget about Landers, Jones, Hill, Sprinkle... They all played well this year and will only get better!

I could see Fickell coming back to coach if he has a good several years at Cincinnati, or a future gig. Vrabel is an interesting option as is a Chris Ash. Granted all these names are based on future production. I think Urban Meyer has raised the coaching bar so high at Ohio State the next head coach will be a coach that has had tremendous success at another program. What was the name of the head coach from North Dakota State? I think he went to Colorado... It will be a coach like that! IMO

Here is a question regarding Josh Myers:

Why all the talk of him moving to guard when he joins the Buckeyes? Is it because he isn't a good pass blocker right now and there is less demand for pass blocking at the guard position? (I know he will still pass block as a guard...) Do we think he will transition to tackle as he becomes a good pass blocker or does his frame, and athleticism, dictate he play guard at the next level(s)?

Thanks for your feedback!

My guess is this search started a while ago, hopefully this is like when Ash replaced Withers. - CTBuckeyeFAN

Urban didn't start shopping recently.  Beck has been on the way out for a while now. - TeddyBallGame

I agree! I have felt like something was going to change from the moment Urban said we would be a better passing team next (this) year! This hasn't happened all of a sudden, it has been in the works for a while!

Watching Kapernick and Gabbert play this year was not unlike watching a monkey hump a football. Not saying the QB coach was responsible, but he obviously didn't help.

Not sure anyone could coach either of them to play any better!!!

What is wrong with people? This is one of the most negative comments section I have seen in a while on 11W and it is mostly directed at a staff writer who is giving us his opinion on a recruit. I for one have no issue with him comparing Dane's competitive fire to that of Tom Brady! The current iteration of our basketball Bucks could use a couple more players with the fire and passion of Tom Brady. 

I don't comment a lot and I don't like to complain to much about coaches or players, especially, players since they are 18-21 year olds, but the one thing that drives me insane when watching them play is how much they turn the ball over. It's not just that they are prone to turnovers, its how the turnovers happen... it seems to be a carelessness with the ball! Watching the game last night I was as nervous as heck watching them try and get the ball up the court vs a full-court press. They also do not make crisp passes when in their half-court sets. Hopefully they can continue to work on that and get better and I trust that they will.

Go Buckeyes and in Matta I, still, trust!

At the end of the day, I still look at it like we have a chance to make the playoffs

I am admittedly not a clowns Browns fan, but I do not have an issue with his comment. I want the players on my team to show up every game and play like they still have a chance at the playoffs. Yes, the browns are awful and have no realistic shot at the playoffs but I applaud him for approaching the game as if they have a chance! Because of that I have more respect for him as a player. 

I wish my Bengals hadn't given up on him... When Hue was with the Bengals he tried to get Pryor to make the switch to receiver... What could have been!

Go Buckeyes and beat Maryland this week!
