#HotTake Amazing as always Ramzy, love your work.
Comment 14 Sep 2014

100 times over I'd agree with you on this. We can only take so much from Kent State, of course, but the game plan was so diverse and aggressive that I loved every second of it. If we called a game like that against Virginia Tech and still lost I wouldn't be nearly as disappointed in the coaching staff as I was. Now, I just hope this game doesn't turn into our Penn State game from last year where we pushed the envelope play call and scheme wise and then dropped back into our usual run, run, run, run, run, 50 yard streak route, run, run, run, run game plan the week after.

Yeah, basically I kept hearing people talk about it and couldn't remember the actual play. I wanted to put a face to the name so to speak.
Comment 11 Sep 2014
Thanks Ramzy, this is perfect. Big positive to take out of this is that Barret throws a very pretty ball when given the chance.

Thanks, I was hoping not to have to watch the whole second quarter again but this will work. Unless someone knows a timestamp. Much appreciated, Trey.

Not trying to sound like a negative Nancy, but do you believe we could actually lure him from Texas A&M to take the same position at OSU? He seems in a great place to get a head coaching gig judging by the success of Kliff Kingsbury.

If I remember correctly from what I've read Morris says we did and Meyer says we didn't. I doubt Morris leaves Clemson for anything less than a P5 head coaching job in a good position to win. Same goes for Narduzzi.

I was thinking kind of the same thing, what got me curious is that Meyer seems to be the first "celebrity" coach we've ever had, or at least as far as I can remember. Obviously Hayes, Bruce, Cooper, and Tressel were great coaches but I can't remember a coach ever entering with the expectations that Meyer has had. People are not hoping and rooting for championships, they expect them, and I wonder if Meyer could survive a hypothetical cooper like scenario with amazing talent and great teams but not really getting it done when the chips are on the line.

Ramzy, you are seriously one of my favorite writers in sports journalism and I mean that quite seriously. You have a gift for writing emotional, poignant, and thoughtful pieces that few do. I seriously hope you continue to pursue writing further in a career, well done as always.

Agree 100% of the providers I've used fios and uverse are the two best in terms of overall quality. I have uverse now and I call them up on the first of the month every month and say I'm switching to fios so they keep lowering my bill. I currently pay $65 total for their fastest Internet, all cable with movie channels and the B1G network. I'm pretty happy with the deal.

I've always supported Everton because they seem to have quite a few Americans on roster. I also support West Ham United because of the movie Green Street Hooligans.

People staked his entry fee. So they get portions of his winnings like buying stock in a company.

As much as I enjoyed this article, and well done Johnny, I think we're all misinterpreting what the OBC said and who he was taking shots at. Personally, I thought the slight was against the scheduling mandate and specifically at the top tier teams are scheduling P5 bottom feeders who are no better, and often worse, than good G5 teams like ECU. I think his use of the B1G is interchangeable and was probably just the first conference that popped into his head.
