OSU didn't butcher anything, the rehab was set by his doctors. Operations are never the first resort and this is why because you just never know after they are done. Hence why pros get more opinions from other doctors
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
I know right! Herbie is a Class A dope with adding the record to the tweet.
I O!....not to leave you hanging. JT was recruited by Herman so there is a reason why he is here. The debate was who could lead if a midseason injury, well the injury is now with time to prepare (more) and not the game on the line. I foe one would like to see what he can do before we just assume we are doomed.
Nutty Buckeye goes by a different name on here because someone else has Nutty Buckeye as their name and there is a Hit the Couch on here, not sure if its the same one.

Ah yes the espn blog days
Meh, I was more disappointed from the drops by WRs. The QBs didn't look great but when its there got to hold on. The D looks good though.
Not saying you shouldn't be skeptical, but talent wise we have the players despite the injury to Miller. Warriner is one of if not the best OL coach so I am not too worried considering they face the best DL in practice. We do have play makers on the edges along with good RBs and JT was highly rated recruit chosen by Herman. The biggest issue keeping OSU out of the playoff is not really the injury, its weather or not the D has improved by OSU standards. If it hasn't it does matter if Miller was fine or not. I guess I looked at this question wrong as could they win it? Yes, they have the talent to....It really depends on the D for me.
Jones has been in the system longer than JT and recovering from an injury his first season last year is why he was behind. By all accounts he has caught up and understands the system which is why he has moved ahead.
I'll say yes being that despite the injury OSU still poseses the most talented team in the B1G. I felt that when KG came in at times the team as a whole played better because they had to push harder knowing the didn't have Miller's play making ability to lean on. We don't know what we really have in JT, but the offense is designed to get the ball out to the playmakers and let them do the rest. We may lose out on some highlights plays from the QB but may gain more sustained drives and still put up points.
I always bought used due to them being pre-highlited and containing humorous pictures etc drawn in.
Does fireworks count?
michigan is so bad that now they defend the App State loss on the espn board. What a f'ing joke they are.
Not reading any of the comments, it's hoping Sparty wins so we beat them and it's a bigger win for OSU nov 8.
I wish the went with the grey end zones and scarlet lettering.
Sparty needs to win and Wisconsin must beat lsu because I believe the badgers will win the west
OSU didn't make it to the ncg in 2007 because of an easy schedule. They made it in because everyone in front of them lost in the last 2 weeks of the season.
They were hurt more by the drops and the press coverage on the short passing game... In general they were very sloppy and tight to begin the game and perhaps they were trying too hard to force a passing game rather than go to the run to open it up.
Actually they are not different... Both were fired for percieved violations and both can sue on being fired fired for erroneous findings. O'Brien litterly loaned money to go to a recruit and used the excuse that he did it out of the kindness of his heart which is why he won his appeal. The NCAA said it wasn't a violation because of his bs excuse in that the he knew the loaned player lost his amatuer status and could not sign. O'Brien was dirty, he just got away with it because OSU busted him for the wrong recruit. Do you really think that Waters cannot go through his reviews that praise him and not say that he was not fired with just cause? I think you are trying too hard to dismiss a very vocal alumni base rather than admit you are wrong. All I said is that Waters most certainly has a case he can win and has already gone National with it more so than what you thought was a clear case of cheating in which backfired in the O'Brien case.
Jim O'brien won his settlement against OSU when he was fired for paying recruits a clear violation.... So don't just assume that because you have more lawyers,$$$, etc that OSU will just win. I agree he most like will not get his job back, but the report used against him seems to have so many holes and discrepencies in it that he could fight it and win.
The Alumni Band is probably the most visible of the 500,000 alumni base so its irrelevant to say they make up >1% because so far they have pretty much led the charge to get Waters in the National spot light to defend himself.
IMO OSU should bounce back better because we do not have Lane Kiffen.
OSU actually came out throwing a lot against MSU. It was a variation of bad passes, dropped balls, and good D that pretty much had OSU going 3 and out up until pretty much the end of the 2nd Qtr.
My comment was towards your shock of Smith supporting Drake and Gee... Not a great move to publicly disagree with your boss. Tress created his own mess, now I do believe Drake jumped the gun he has a history of it.
Are you suggesting that Tressel did nothing wrong? It does not suprise me that Smith supports Drake since that is his boss, much like he supported Gee during his tenure.
