Yes I made the student video!!

But of course I have since amended the ESPN sign 

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Dan Mullen is now reportedly losing his DC and OC to lateral positions.  Have to be believe that Mullen is in the mix for Michigan. AN easier path to the CFP and less competition for assistants since Michigan has 2 of the top paid coordinators in college football. 

Comment 16 Dec 2014

I do think Miami has a legitimate gripe about the 2000 BCS Championship.  I would be curious to see if the final BCS would have put them in over FSU 

Comment 13 Dec 2014

I would think Herman has the ability to long term plan.  Looking ahead at the offense he would have next year and be able to turn it into a Power 5 coaching job rather than a mid major for 2-4 years has to be a more attractive offer right.

As for Urban's instructional method

This is definitely the new way forward of education especially here at tOSU.  I am enrolled in the M. Ed Program and Student Centered Learning is a core principle.   The idea behind it is skill building should occur in the classroom where students can receive feedback and correct their knowledge instantly.  Sounds like Urban has embraced this philosophy to ensure the limited time the NCAA gives him is used to the fullest advantage. The use of quizzes and QBs leading the instruction builds  thinking skills which I would think would translate into the QB making changes by himself on the field instead of a Check with me type of deal which we have seen lesso   of this year. Also the informal quizzes ensure that everyone is participating and not just the starters.  Makes me feel more comfortable about Cardale starting against Alabama has he has been doing the mental part of QB all year.

Basically, If Herman and Meyer shell up like Penn State we're going to be in trouble.  But if they let it rip from the beginning like MSU we should be in good shape.  Unfortunately, history tells me that were going to see the Penn State plan of managing the game for the QB instead of letting him play.

"Three division championships, won 35 of the last 38 games they've played. Twenty-four straight wins, longest in Ohio State history," Meyer said. "Three straight years without losing a conference game, first time ever in the Big Ten, and the second-winningest group of players in college football right now in the last three years."

Pretty impressive list, right? Well, there's one thing missing.

B1G Coach of the Year 

Comment 01 Dec 2014

Congratulations to the Ladies Volleyball Team on earning an NCAA berth.  Having a winning record in the B1G is no easy accomplishment and should be rewarded.  

Sad to see that Purdue who finished the year in the Top 20 was left out due to RPI.  I hope this is not foreshadowing of what could happen in basketball due to the addition of Rutgers and Maryland taking away 2 games against the top of the league for any team on the bubble.

Broncos.  Andy Reid has no answer for the Broncos on defense. 

Comment 25 Nov 2014

Ross nice report on the game.  To me it seemed that Meyer has become set with his WRs in 11 with D. Smith, Marshall, and Thomas.  Would you consider this the best possible grouping we could put on the field to give the defense troubling in alignment and matchups?

Comment 18 Nov 2014

I don't know that I agree with Meyer's assessment that Barrett was the one at fault for the deep int.  It sure looked on replay that Corey Smith was half-assing until he turned and saw the ball coming his way.  Devin Smith easily makes that catch for 6
