As always Ramzy, damn fine writing and perspective. We've all watched Curtis go from a "can't miss kid" to struggling with the burdens others put on him, to finding his role and becoming a leader and a man. I wish him the best for what ever comes next for him, but I have a feeling that Curtis Grant Jr. is going to be just fine. He will excel in the greatest league of all... life. He makes us proud to be Buckeyes!
At the 1:16 mark of Tommy Schutt's interview a guy walks by in the background... Is that Bill Belichick? Sure does look like him
As always Ramzy, perfect. How much fun was that?!!! After the 80's and 90's of close but no cigar, implosions, and coming up just short, this IS a great time to be a Buckeye! Man, what a tremendously satisfying off-season.
Echo that Oyster... No water, two a days in August, salt pills, and if you got cracks at school you got em worse at home! #Glory Days
There is... It's called Rocky I, II, III, IV
Bravo Ramzy! Perfect game week history lesson with exactly the right tenor!
We are blessed to have a great o-line coach. This guy has changed the culture and expectations of the line, recruits well, develops talent, and is a great offensive mind. Anybody criticizing this guy doesn't have a clue. Do they not remember the Bollman era? Ugh!
Count me in as well. I find PK mind numbingly awful. Johansen would be an upgrade for sure, love his work with Lapham.
You mean peach it, right?
mmmmmmmm...Peaches AND bourbon... how perfectly indulgent is that Ramzy! You go brother!
Damn, I'm thirsty all of a sudden. As always Ramzy... perfect.
If true, best wishes on a speedy recovery Braxton... Next man up J.T. Barrett, your time is now!
York sizes guy up from the side, slightly behind him, then unleashes a haymaker that finds it's mark. Then he runs away like a little bitch. Really? Typical I suppose from a *ichigan *an!
Priceless Ramzy... GitHG!? Now that is fucking hilarious!
Great work on this sight Kyle, I'm sure you'll dig Ft. Wayne, it's a nice place to live.
Because those who need to hear it most are women and probably not reading Ramzy!
I thought I read that Lucas was selling his swag to help put his grandkids through college. I certainly can't blame him for that.
My dad set the tone for the entire family early. Summer is boating season (Marblehead), Fall is Buckeye season, Winter and Spring are open so please plan your weddings, reunions, gatherings, and if possible, deaths for these two seasons if you would like his attendance. His favorite Christmas lights? Tail lights headed out the lane of course.
Completely disagree! Offense was not the problem last year, or the year before, we set a school record for points in a season. Quite simply our defensive scheme was soft, not aggressive. It was painful to watch. It was the flipside to watching our offense under Bollman! I'll give Urban credit for making changes to the staff and emphasizing an aggressive change of scheme. We have the athletes on defense, let em loose!
I actually agree that Gene Smith will leave this place better than he found it. Yes, he and Gee completely choked on Tatgate, but I've seen similar and even less harmful situations handled worse (hello Dave Brandon). He is an important voice in the jungle of change that is big boy football, and Ohio State is a player. He's respected amongst his peers, and most generally does a good job of keeping OSU at the forefront in determining how we are positioning ourselves in a changing landscape.
Ditto... not dollar for dollar
Chicago Bears. Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary, Walter Payton, Gale Sayers. Butkus and Payton were the two most feared and respected players in their era, and would probably do so today.
Gotta be Raekwon... The other three aren't on campus yet!
Thanks Aubrey. I think Osiecki's departure was a little messy if I recall, that may have had something to do with the exodus of commits as well. Too bad but time to move on, looks like Rohlik is at least building some depth.
I was wondering, is it common to have so much turnover/decommits when you have a coaching change? Wasn't Rohlik part of Osiecki's staff? Great background stuff Calgarybuck and William, and I love the depth of reporting Aubrey, keep up the great work!
