Pause that Groveport. If you truly, truly follow the sport, nobody credible in boxing, i.e. boxers and trainers, believe that Floyd Mayweather has ducked Pacquiao (or anyone for that matter). The problem with these so-called "agreements" is that there's nothing to agree to. If you follow the execs, both have come out and said there's no contracts grafted yet. Showtime and HBO are still trying to hammer out the details. Arum & Pacquiao are just planting the seeds for a clever excuse to get out of the fight (like they did in the first & second negotiations when Pacquiao said he was scared of needles although he has tattoos, and then when Bob Arum was held in contempt of lying and breaking his gag order when they went through negotiations the 2nd time.)

The truth of the matter is Bob Arum is a snake (always has been), who from the very beginning has always miscast Mayweather as a professional in the mainstream media as if he was afraid or a cherry picker, when the facts bare out that Floyd had beaten like opponents FIRST and in all cases beat them at their best weight-classes and coming off a win. Follow the real time line and it's easy to see who's really full of BS.

Now, you don't have to like Floyd as a person; but the media nonsense that has come at his expense because of Bob Arum & Team Pacquiao is a joke. Even Pacquiao's ex-strength coach said that they've been full of shit this whole time.

Thanks for the shout out and all your work Remy, I hope you had a great time at the All Star festivities!

But if I recall correctly, didn't you once find some sort of metric to measure the performance of the OL as far as their blocking ability and whathaveyou? I was appealing more to that along with use of EZE down the stretch. The #SLOBS were stellar in those last three games! 

Comment 26 Jan 2015

I believe you do have them flip flopped. If I recall, I believe Hilliard was said to be between the SLB or MLB whereas Baker was the WLB. Now next year we'll obviously see Raekwon, Lee, & Perry. Booker will spell Perry I'd imagine, but the bigger question in the two deep is who is will back up Kwon in the middle? Joe Burger? The super versatile Sam Hubbard? #BuckeyeProblems 

Comment 25 Jan 2015

I understand fully man, +1 back. But, I actually would like to see the Browns draft more Buckeyes and I think three of our guys could really help them out, more specifically, through the 1st-3rd rounds they could take an OL, DT, WR, & CB... and I think Bennett, Grant, & Smith would do work in Cleveland. 

Help sure up the run D, add to the pass D, add a bonafide HR threat while bolstering the OL.

Then again, these are the Browns... -sigh-

Comment 24 Jan 2015

Remy, I'd actually like to see the stats for and against the actual rushing attempts for Elliott and the Offensive line measurables for the last three games versus with Barrett. 

I honestly don't buy into the whole "Cardale's arm strength prevented teams from loading the box" angle at all given J.T. has the longer TD bombs between the two. I think that just became the mantra of the well balanced offense.

Comment 24 Jan 2015

I disagree. His analysis of Jones was spot on. Receny bias definitely clouds people's judgment of the fact that the ENTIRE TEAM PEAKED when Cardale came in. We keep talking about his arm strength which is great and all, but between the two, J.T. actually has the longest TD passes on go routes to Devin, and when he learned to stop under-throwing him, his passes were on the money, in stride.

Ezekiel Elliott and the seasoned #Slobs deserve just as much, if not MORE credit for the last three games than Dolodale Jones.

We're trying to be objective in a win given how well the offense performed overall. With that, the offense was limited with Jones in the zone read, and he clearly doesn't have the same command of the offense as far as audibles and recognizing defensive formations  pre-snap that Barrett displayed.

Our boys overall stepped up and minimized Cardale's mistakes (albeit most due to inexperience), and made some great plays on 50/50 balls by Devin Smith & Jalin Marshall, and some clutch trucking from Debodale on the run. He definitely played his part in it, but I don't think it can be said that he was THEE catalyst. 

Comment 21 Jan 2015

The difference in the situations between Braxton and Brees is that it was Brees' FIRST injury which is the reason why his recovery time was marked as 6-9 months (the same as Braxton's first injury - remember he was hurt in January during the Orange Bowl) but Braxton's 2nd injury was non-contact which suggested that he wasn't fully recovered yet which is why he reinjured it when he was trying to throw it with full strength.  The 2nd recovery time given was 9-12 months. 

If Brax is smart, he'll take the whole 12 months and then-some to assure that his shoulder will be good to go.

As far as J.T. goes, Evan Spencer suffered the exact same injury J.T. did in the Orange Bowl and fully recovered from it with no issues. J.T. will only be limited running full speed in the spring, but he'll be fine working on his footwork and throwing. His schedule was 6 weeks in a cast, 4 weeks in a boot, and then rehab. He's in the rehab phase now. By spring ball, he should be able to compete, but really take advantage of that black jersey, lol. If not, he'll definitely be good to go by the summer (fall camp), which is where he made his mark last time.

Comment 20 Jan 2015

I can't believe the lack of support that Jon Waters gets from some of our fellow Buckeyes; I mean really, it's borderline un-American to just take a "well thems the breaks" approach when the system clearly screwed him and by all accounts the investigation on him was rushed, fraudulent, & patently false for the most part.

He has the support of all TBDBITL past & present essentially; and there's literally no Title IX issues at hand. IMHO, the university would look BETTER if they just admit they rushed to judgement in an attempt to protect its' students and rehired him.

Comment 15 Jan 2015
The crazy thing is one of these guys said it's the #Dream14 that's a REALLY special class and we have it coming in waves. The Dream 14 will be the next infusion of offense with supplemental pieces for the D and the Elite 15 will be vice versa. Gotta love the recruiting pattern; alternating between offense & defense as focal points, allowing the standouts in the two deep or special teams, then others redshirt until they're ready to contribute while seeing the positive results!

Mike Bennett.

Devin Smith has finally put it all together this season. We all knew he had this potential, we just wondered WHEN, and well, here we are; BUT despite how football changes offensively & defensively, the game will ALWAYS be about who controls the line of scrimmage. MB, as a leader, demanding more from his defense and then leading by example in the biggest games of the year speaks volumes, ESPECIALLY as a DT at the point of attack. 

And as the old adage goes, offense wins games, defense wins championships.

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Agree with this 100%. FWIW I think Burrow is going to be the next great Buckeye QB after J.T. Barrett heads to the NFL. And that's no knock on Collier or Gibson, but I think Joe Burrow is going to be a beast in this offense, especially after 2 full seasons of Mick's conditioning program and perhaps Gibson, especially if he just loves football, would be his #1 WR. Man, wouldn't that be a story?

Comment 02 Jan 2015

Every big game we've scored on that exact same run from Eze... MSU, UM, Wisky, & Bama... I don't know what it is, but damn that's a beautiful play. It's like OSU's sniper in the bushes...we kill you long with Devin, then pound the rock on the edge, show you the same look and BAM!!! 

Comment 20 Dec 2014

I'm pretty sure the OP says Ash might be leaving and asked for more info from anyone who knows anything more about the situation and if he did go, who do we think would replace him...

Comment 20 Dec 2014

Welp it's on the front page on 11W now.... so much for rumors, eh?
