Comment 26 Nov 2014

We learned from last year's game that Brady does indeed understand the Rivalry. However, I think our D can be had by a smash-mouth running game that opens up moderate crossing routes to the TE and an occasional play-action deep ball. This is what I expect to see from them Saturday.

If both teams play their best, we win. If they play their best and we play a sucky game, well, I don't want to think about that.

Being a complete maniac in the south stands during the '98 game; spent the entire game yelling and screaming for our D to sack Brady, only to find out later they had 10 or 11 sacks that game. Even OSU fans were telling me to sit down and shut up.

That was also the year I made mention in the Detroit Free Press for booing TTUN's band as they entered the shoe.

I guess I was a little jacked after the '95-'97 debacles.

Me too. South stands, saw that Bellisari pick coming from a mile away. Will never forget watching them celebrate with their band and fans on our field.

Comment 24 Nov 2014

Considering the debacle that was the '90s vs. TTUN, I would crap my pants if we came out in these on Saturday. But I would vote for them making an appearance somewhere else down the line. Love the huge numbers.

Comment 24 Nov 2014

The line doesn't matter. Rarely in my 46 years on this earth has The Game been lopsided. It happens, but not often - and usually when unexpected.

All of that being said, I think it will be 35-24 good guys, with Zeke breaking for a very late TD to get to the 35 and ice the victory. We're going to have trouble stopping their run, and getting our running game going. For all of their suckiness this year, their D has been mostly solid. Buckle your chinstraps fellas.

As much as I love the traditional, understated uniforms and logos in place of all the "new hotness", I have to say that I think the latest Combat/Rivalry/Chrome OSU uniforms are outstanding. They "look" like OSU uniforms. The home jersey color is a deeper tone, the gray numbers and black lettering rock, the wide helmet stripe is tough, and who can argue with the green Buckeye leaves? And the road "Storm Trooper" look might be the best looking uni in college football.

I wouldn't mind if we kept them.

Braxton's shoulder will decide what happens next (or doesn't happen next). I love the guy, but having some experience with a similar injury tells me he may not have the chance to play QB again. Sure hope I'm wrong.

Dontre is our version of Sam McGuffie. Love the kid and wish him much success, but it's pretty hard to live up to that kind of hype - which of course is not necessarily his fault.

Comment 17 Oct 2014

Not sure about his hands, but he has the size and speed to be a Calvin Johnson type of player for someone.

Comment 09 Oct 2014

Hard to see Urban being here more than a total of 5-8 years. Coaches rise and fall so quickly from flava of the month to has-been, we're probably three to four years away from even being able to speculate as to who the hot candidates might be.

Comment 09 Oct 2014

Although I still think they will find a way to lure Jim H. or Les Miles, Teryl Austin may end up being the choice - and not a bad one if they want an up and comer w/the M pedigree.

Comment 02 Oct 2014

In all reality, considering everything that program needs, it really does have to be Miles or Jim Harbaugh. Both fit the checklist perfectly. They will both demand "Saban money" and get it, but the cost of a third poorly made hiring decision in a row is much greater.
