Meyer is one of the few people who could actually impact a game performance through his pregame speech. The Cavaliers will walk out onto the floor ready to play for sure, but maybe also a little extra inspiration after listening to Urban. This will have the biggest impact on guys like Shumpert, Smith, and Thompson, which is where the team really needs some confidence and production tonight. I like this.
Something big is coming. Maybe we will win a national championship or something . . .?
Functional wifi is a giant shortcoming at the shoe. I could not even get my e-tickets to load at the spring game to get in the gate. I stood there staring at my phone for 20 minutes while my kids asked if we were going to be able to get in. What good is a ticketmaster e-ticket if you can't use the Internet to produce the ticket you have already paid for? And this is the improved wifi? It's a damned joke. They have no problem spending money on things that annoy people, so just throw us a bone once in a while and make the wifi work for us. I couldn't even send a cell phone pic of my kids to their mother.
Make it happen OSU. There is no excuse.
I think you are the first person I have seen to disparage the Princeton offense. Team-oriented offenses are what you don't like about basketball? I happen to be on the other side of that view, but I am more surprised that an offense most consider to be historically innovative, based on movement, set execution, and actual baskeball skills would be seen as undesirable. Agree to disagree.
What a great place to start your NFL career for Jeff!
I'm reasonably certain that the implication their AD made was that Meyer is afraid the put UGA on the schedule. That, and he will not consider scheduling OSU again after our AD suddenly cancelled yet another series against a respectable opponent. It is becoming a joke that this seems to happen so often. We schedule someone good, and everyone lauds the move and celebrates the choice, and then it is unceremoniously cancelled a year or two later with some excuse or another, and replaced with some pathetic team willing to take a beating for a palatable price. This year's schedule is just one example.
My God, that schedule is pathetic.
I know that OSU is in if they win out, but I t is embarrassing to know that we will be forced to defend that lineup come playoff time.
I understand the B1G is what it is, but I do not believe that the athletic department cannot do better than this on the front end. And yes, i do know that these OOC schedules are contracted years in advance, I just don't think it is a reason to justify the pansies we pay to watch every year.
PSU is the point things changed. Nobody cares about the VT game.
171 yards for Cooper.
I'm sure both Tennessee and OSU will be on the list that he cannot transfer to.
Tiderinsider.com is the one my grandfather (Bama fan) reads. That, and of course rivals.
MSU, and I think by more than a TD.
He tested positive for ecstasy both times, which is totally different from addiction drugs like heroin or meth. He is not a drug addict. He is guilty of being stupid, thinking he could get away with it having just passed his last test to complete the suspension. I think that under the rules, he has to be dismissed from the team. There is no getting around it. For god's sake, it on the wall in 12 inch high letters at the WHAC, where every player sees it every day. Does Urban do the hypocrite thing like he did at Florida? It does he mean it this time?
I am so excited.
Another attempt by Gottlieb to be funny, and completely missing the mark.
Tressel for me. First, he won a NC for OSU. So it's not close. Second, he was probably the last coach in football who dressed like head coach should. Everyone else looks like an assistant trainer out there. I don't care if he is the current coach, I hate that stupid windbreaker Meyer wears and wish he would put on a tie like the professional he is paid to be. Also,and I know this just my own personal preference, but I hate this spread it out small-ball. I like pro style offenses with QBs that can and do throw the ball with some degree of proficiency - and not just to keep the safeties away from the line of scrimmage. I also like to see ex buckeyes in the pros, and enjoy watching them succeed. Tressel was outstanding in that regard. Urban cannot be judged yet on that, but I don't think well see many offensive buckeyes in the NFL in the future. The spread just doesn't translate as well to the pros, small players are not as durable and size is a coveted asset that NFL teams favor for obvious reasons. It may not be a huge advantage to be bigger, but it is a huge disadvantage to be smaller. Speed just doesn't cover that defection most of the time. Anyway, I still love the buckeyes, and I will cheer for whomever wears the S&G (unless they behave like some of those SEC kids). And I respect Urban and his track record. But if you ask me who I like more, and why . . . Well there it is. If Urban wins the playoff one day we can revisit the debate.
I was tired of him two years ago.
How disappointing is this? I would be so pissed if I had season tickets. But I know OSU doesn't care what fans think, as long as we keep giving them our money.
Would we be happy if UNC is replaced by BAMA ?
I think that would work for me.
Welcome to the Buckeye family Jashon!
I see you working the other recruits out there and doing a great job. Question is what do you think about an ELITE 15 DL class of yourself, Gallimore, Wilkins, and Sweat? Amazing, and possible . . . Have you been in contact with any of these guys, specifically Sweat? You two would be incredible bookends, and anchors for a championship calibur defensive line!
No Texas, huh?
Probably ask him about Chris Rainey and Will Hill . . . sour.
This is surprising if true. Having said that, I seriously doubt Meyer's sincerity here. He has a track record of saying things to the media that he thinks will motivate a player, even if it is completely false.
Whomever does win the backup position will be deserving; I have no doubts about that. But this competition is certainly not over. That is an absurd statement.
The only southern neutral sites I would consider are Nashville at Titans stadium, and Jerry World. Can't think of any others I would schedule. But I'd love to see H&Hs with any of the middle/upper tier SEC and B12 schools. I wouldn't mind just scheduling more of these with the PAC12 either. Of course I see great value in doing these neutral site games in Chicago, NYC, and DC - which I guess is kind of southern.
I love to see this.
