Question: Did I miss the College Football National Championship Sports Illustrated issue and offer? I did see the Super Bowl New England offer, but never saw the Ohio State National Championship offer. What's up with that!?
What a great interview. I had the same thing happen to me at a small college in Ohio. There was an offensive coordinator who rode my back for an entire season. It lead to a blow up on the practice field one day, which really sealed my fate at that school. At the end of that season I walked away from a sport I really enjoyed, stayed in college and got my degree. I went on to be a junior high and eventually a high school coach in both football and basketball. I always made it my point to care for each and every boy who played for me, always putting their development and enjoyment of the game before victory. I have never seen nor heard from that college coach, but now that I am retired, many of my former players still contact me to express their appreciation of the short time we spent together as coach and athlete. I guess I did learn a lesson from that college coach...how NOT to treat people. I often thing of my own playing career and wish it had turned out different, but I would not trade my career in education and coaching for anything. For that, I am thankful everyday and miss it more that my own playing days.
I am new to this fine website, but have you always been so stupid m man? You are one arrogant son of a gun. Tell me, isn't there a ttun website you can go to and be a goof there?
John Havlicek!!!! YESIREE!!! NO Jerry Lucas....REALLY!! 1 season does not a great Buckeye make...so Conley and Oden need to go. Definitely replace with Jimmy Jackson and Luke Witte. Funderburke...REALLY!? Is that for his time at OSU or IU? If OSU was not your first pick...off you go! That means that Alan Hornyak is also an OSU first teamer! In the words of Jimmy Crum..."That shot came down with ice icicles on it! How About That!!"
They should rename the Heisman Award as the "Offensive Quarterback or Running Back or Wide Receiver Award" When is the last time a lineman or a defensive player won the award? I am not sure that the best player in football gets it. There are some great offensive and defensive linemen who have played great games this year and helped QB's, Running Backs and Receivers get those great numbers, but their contribution is not documented, researched or recognized for this award. Yes...I am tired of it. I sure hope this isn't political.
There is a lot of political comments on this topic. How's come the "11W gods" haven't deleted it out?
Thanks CountryBuckeye. Appreciate the kind words. Cousy was also one of my favorites, back in the late 50's, early 60's when the great game of basketball first caught my eyes. Carry on Dude!!
Looked and looked, but could not find which bowl game Xichigan is in? OOHHHH, that's right, I totally forgot for a moment...only had 5 wins this season.
WHO CALLED IT!!?? Who said everything was going to be just fine with Cardale at quarterback?! Who called it??? This guy, that's right "old Fort Seneca Steve"!! Mr. MVP...CARDALE JONES! Great Job Bucks! B1G CHAMPS!!!
YOU DELETED MY COMMENT.....WHO ARE YOU TO DELETE MY FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT!!! May the Founding Fathers haunt you!!
bama didn't offer!? BAMA DIDN'T OFFER!!?? Who the Heck cares about bama!!! SCREW BAMA!!!!
Did someone write Chuck Heater, for head coach at Xichigan?! Very interesting.
WHAT A CROCK! Looks the B1G is falling in with espn when it comes to THE Ohio State University. NO RESPECT FOR BUCKEYE NATION!!! SCREW YOU b1g!!
I was more shocked and concerned when Coach Meyer promoted JT, over Cardale to starting QB when Braxton went down, then Cardale replacing JT. CJ comes from a great high school program, was a top ranked recruit, has been in the OSU program for 3 years and will do just fine. I have all the confidence in the world in CJ. The only thing that upsets me is the idiot from espn trying to give CJ a nickname. I love Lou Holtz, but can not stand "markie mark".
28 - 14 THE Ohio State University!!! (We will miss you Brady)
Spence, Carter, Underwood...looks like lots of room for the class of 2015. With the Xichigan recruits dropping like flies and looking to OSU...we've got the room for them and many more.
Deleted by 11W staff. No politics.
EASY ON THE CELTICS THERE MARION BOY! Ever hear of one John "Hondo" Havlicek - the Pride of Martins Ferry, Ohio!? 1960 National Champion Ohio State Basketball Player / 9 out 10 NBA Championships in the 1960's....and on and on. The Pride of Beantown for many a NBA seasons! "Havlicek steals the ball! Havlicek steals the ball! It's all over! It's all over!!"
OH MY GOODNESS!! THIS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS!! Not sure who I dislike more, the ncaa or espn. I was taught a long time ago, be consistent and you will have respect. The ncaa is the posterchild for inconsistent.
Do not like the title of your article or the article itself. For crying out loud, most of you make me sick to be a Buckeye fan! Coach Meyer, his staff and his team are fine. Young teams learn as they go with good coaching and we as OSU fans have that...a young team and good coaches. Good luck team and coaches the rest of the 2014 season. Do not go to a remote island, but stay strong together. If Buckeye Nation is upset after only two games into the season...remember to stay strong together. Coach Meyer, you are outstanding...so glad you came home to Ohio. The best is yet to come. Keep the faith boys...keep the faith.
WOW! Very nice indeed. The only thing that tsun has is a Rose Bowl sign on the wall where they try to pick fights in the tunnel before the game, because they know winning the game is useless. But what do you expect from a "No Class" school like Fishigan...they stink both off and on the field.
desmond howard...just one more reason to hate espn. What A Chump!
Hate is such a terrible word. How about a deep boiling admiration for such a successful program when ever it is coached by true homegrown Buckeyes. You can have Texas, California, and Florida....give me Ohio Football any day of the week. Don't hate B1G...just stand back and admire, wish and dream. OSU Football - over 100 years and still going STRONG. I have a feeling that 2014 will be fun to watch in Columbus.
I have hated clemson since the Woody Hayes incident, when that punk intercepted Art, ran into the OSU sideline and taunted the team and Woody. But I almost hate the fact that we were one dropped punt return from beating them in the bowl game last season. It is not a tsun or notre dame hate, but clemson sure is a punk school.
It took a moment, but I found him. Row 4, 5th man from the left: Rex Kern #10, the greatest Buckeye Football Player ever! The pride of Lancaster, Ohio.
