Antoine Winfield had a ridiculous game agains u of m in 1997, albeit in a loss, but still ridiculous nonetheless.
1998 was my first OSU game. I was 9 years old. I sat in B deck with my dad not fully understanding what was going on but I remember a lot of happy Buckeye fans on the walk out of the stadium that day.
2012 would be a close second mostly because it was my last year as a student at OSU and it capped a perfect season.
I would be pretty damn cool if the Men's Soccer team could win the Natty this year, in my opinion.
I just donated. It wasn't much but I wanted to be able to say that I helped towards a great cause. This site is awesome, and cancer is not.
My step mother just finished her last round of chemo, she was diagnosed with non-hodgkin's lymphoma in June. I know it isn't the same kind of cancer, but I support getting rid of ALL cancers after what she had to go through. My stache is dedicated to her.
I, like most of us OSU fans, don't have a very good idea how good this team will be this year but I am definitely looking forward to seeing how it plays out. I think a top 5 finish in the B1G, and another tournament appearance is the minimum expectation. Hopefully this year will be the start of something special with this freshman class.
I live in Fairborn, so I'm north eastern. I talked to the Greene County alumni club and they said that they watch games at TJ Chumps on Dayton-Yellowsprings. Has anyone heard about that particular establishment?
I enjoyed the time that DRuss gave to Buckeye Nation, obviously I would've liked him to stay but I definitely don't blame him for leaving.
I was only ever going to go to Ohio State. I couldn't get into main campus so I went to the Newark branch and got my 2.0 GPA and my 30 credit hours and then I moved to main campus and graduated in the spring on 2013. Graduating from OSU was always a huge goal of mine and now that I have done it, its the greatest accomplishment of my life.
I'm an OSU alum, dude. No matter the hypothetical circumstances I would never hate OSU.
Cleveland is known for being very "pro-OSU". i'm from Dayton so I see this sentiment all too often from people down here, though Dayton is most OSU territory, everything below us is not.
This is every reason why I HATE the city of cincinnati and all of their sports. Cleveland for life.
I completely agree NorCal. The older I have gotten the more I have come to respect excellence in sports as well as the hard work that it takes to maintain that consistent level of excellence. That's what makes Izzo such a good guy, his program is incredibly consistent and he seems to remain the same good guy no matter what. I still want to beat sparty every time we play them though.
I love Tom Izzo. I think he has to be the best coach in college hoops, he consistently gets his team to compete in March with nowhere near the talent of most top tier programs. Izzo might also be the college hoops coach I would most like to get hammered drunk at a Skynyrd concert with!
Another great write up, Kyle. I was a kicker/ punter in high school so I naturally have a huge passion for special teams, and as an aspiring football coach I think special teams is sort of my ticket to breaking into coaching at the high school level. It would be incredible if you could do a similar article on the return units, both punt and kickoff, as well as one OSU's punt coverage schemes. Once again thanks for the article, it was my favorite one yet! Go Bucks!
I think the recruiting class of 2015 is one of those that could be a game changing type of class, kind of like 2006, and 2010. I truly believe we just needed to cycle the 2012 guys out and get some new blood into the program. Matta addressed all issues with this class, a scorer in Lyle, and true PG in AJ Harris, a pure shooter in Grandstaff, a big that can provide some low post scoring in Giddens, and a guy that does a little of everything in Mitchell. I still have a lot of confidence in Thad and his ability to lead the program.
The kid has skills. Period. It doesn't matter who guards him, he always gets the shot that he wants, which may be the most impressive thing about him.
Even though Nebraska is awful, this team needed to go out and break one off in someone's ass just to get back on track. I'll be at the Purdue game on Sunday so can exact some revenge on them! Go Bucks!
Tressel's version of Dave didn't use many constraint plays off of it, which allowed good teams to stack the box and ultimately stop the power run. Urban's version of Dave has constraint plays built in, like bubble screens, and quick hitches to hurt teams on the perimeter when they overplay the power run.
