I've always been pretty confident he would've gone to Akron with his HS coach and 2 of his HS teammates. Definitely back in 2003 during the OBrien era.

I also think his relationship with OSU is more business than fandom. Don't get me wrong, he grew up in Ohio, likes football, so he certainly likes OSU. But his true passion is for Akron first.

Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with one of the biggest college brands connecting with one of the biggest athlete brands. It makes sense, and I think has been beneficial for both sides. It wouldn't surprise me if his agency eventually starts signing NFL players, and he uses his relationship with OSU for inroads. Just be aware that it is more about business than it is about being an OSU fan.

It's like we're all following the PTI/First Take model where you take an extreme position and must shout at someone who is shouting the extreme opposite position. Either OSU coaches are infallible or OSU coaches are not fit to coach Pop Warner, and there is nothing inbetween.

Truth is this probably wasn't their best coaching job all year, but we're still sitting at 10-1, so not a whole lot to complain about.

If this game makes you not want to be a Buckeye fan, you didn't deserve to be one in the first place.

OSU is 48-4 over the last 4 years.

Also, guys, it doesn't matter, because the new Star Wars movie comes out in less than a month, now. After that movie changes all of our lives, College Football will just seem trivial.

Passing offense was bad all year. Maybe due to QB regression, maybe new coaches, maybe loss of WR talent. Caught up to us in a game against a team with a good run D but a crappy pass D.
