Next year's team will be even better than this one

I see people keep saying this and I'm not saying you're wrong, but I am curious as to why you think that? We could lose almost 3/4 of our starting defense to the draft (I don't believe Hooker will stay). I think offensively we could be better but we are also likely losing our biggest playmaker in Samuel

Not to mention, Hooker (Safety) also had more tackles than Peppers (Linebacker). But wait...Hooker (who doesn't play offense) is tied for Peppers in touchdowns (3) with Peppers (who plays offense)

11W twitter is about to get real hot and spicy tonight...if you're into that sort of thing

Ohio State could make its own highlight tape of just plays that Peppers wasn't able to make a play. Personal favorites being Zeke's block that sent Peppers into a front flip, JT's 41 yard run where Peppers gets stiff armed and out ran, and Curtis's game winner where Peppers over pursues by 5 yards. What a joke

"A lot of guys have the option (to wear them)," James said. "I believe they all received them yesterday. It's been something that's been in the works for years now. We finally were able to put together a shoe and work with the Nike football lab to put a cleat on there. It's always a hard process when you turn a basketball shoe into a cleat, so we finally were able to find a shoe that fits the Nike lab football cleat.

"And then we had those guys wear test them yesterday at practice, and for the guys that want to wear them, they can. They have so many shoes, they can decide what they want to wear as well, so. It was just like, great timing, I guess, that it came together when they were playing Michigan in the biggest game of the season."

My guess is that the bigger guys will not be able to wear them because its essentially a basketball shoe with cleats on it. Bigger guys need wider shoes with more support. It seems like its more of a personal preference whether or not they want to risk wearing a brand new cleat or not

Zone 6 has a great opportunity to make a statement this game, especially Noah Brown who has been pretty quiet lately. Last year, Mike Thomas pretty much owned Lewis with several big catches and a few pass interference calls and that is what we need this game. They are going to stack the box and trust their corners to play man, so the opportunities will be there

I remember the story about when Dontre Wilson was visiting and deciding if he wants to flip his commitment from Oregon, they said JT saw him in the weight room and gave an impromptu speech about why he should choose Ohio State. Its funny because back then, JT wasn't even considered the man because he was behind Braxton and Cardale at the time

I just don't see any team that they would be able to put in our place at #2. Outside of Alabama, there are no dominant teams this year so even with a conference championship, I don't see any teams jumping an 11-1 Ohio State with the resume we have. The exception to this would be Penn State if they somehow beat Wisconsin. In that case, I see the 4 teams being Alabama, Penn State, Ohio State, and the conference champion of either the ACC (Clemson) or Pac12 (Washington). Either way, it's going to be pretty interesting to see how it unfolds.

I agree they are both great players but I completely disagree that Bell is "much more" physical. Hooker may be a little smaller which results in some missed tackles if he is out of position, but he puts his body on the line and does not shy away from physical contact at all. Hooker has 4 tackles for loss through 10 games while Bell had 3 for his 27 games so I don't think he has an issue with bringing any running backs down

Being in the press box allows you to see more of what is actually happening down the field that the camera doesn't show on TV. With that advantage, what do you believe is Ohio States most lethal offensive lineup? Are there any receivers that are constantly creating separation downfield that JT isn't seeing? Bonus: Do we see Victor more in meaningful red zone situations, or was that more of a "lets see what he can do" moment while having a big lead?

I don't think you can really blame Indians fans. The blame falls on the 3rd party ticket vendors who purchase all the face value tickets and instantly resell them for 50x the price. Chicago is obviously going to be able to buy more high priced tickets than the people of Cleveland especially in these circumstances of being a game 7 and having all the momentum on their side.

Ohio State has a small chance of having one of the most impressive resumes we have ever seen here (maybe nationally but I don't have the stats to prove it). If we were to win the rest of our games, and Penn State and Wisconsin/Nebraska stayed relevant, we would have played what is currently the #3, 8, 10, 12, 14, and another game with Wisconsin/Nebraska in the BIG10 championship. That would be 6 games against top 15 opponents, which I've never heard of happening before
