Hate to think about removing kickoffs from the game. It's an exciting play which gives young guys the opportunity to get involved and contribute with the prize of playing time as a reward for a job well done. Where would guys like Nate Ebner be without the kickoff? It would take away a vital part of the game.
First jorts, now cargo shorts! What the hell am I supposed to wear?
I'm thinking Smith should start typing his reviews
.......and Mike Hart, Chad Henne, and Jake Long move to a combined 0-6 against the Buckeyes.
UPVOTE TIMES INFINITY!
Thank you for your service!
My best friend was a defensive coordinator at a small school in Tennessee. He asked me what I was hearing about the slow moving search for a coach (well before the days of 11W). I listed the more popular names, Glen Mason, I think Mike Bellotti and Chris Spielman were considered, I even think Gruden was mentioned. I then said 'and a D2 coach from Youngstown named Tressel'. Without hesitation he told me if they interview him he will get the job, no question. He had met Tressel at a coaches convention a few years prior and was amazed at the way he spoke and carried himself. Said he ran into him again the next year and the first thing he said on the second meeting was asking about how his wife and son were doing, mentioning them by name. Pure Tressel; attention to detail, focus on what is truly important, and then understanding the GAME like no other Buckeye coach in history. He laid quite the foundation for Urban to build on. Cannot wait until tomorrow's stroll down memory lane!
THE JOHN COOPER ERA AT OHIO STATE ENDS AFTER THE 2000 SEASON
Best headline in the series
and Ohio State decided to keep Cooper around for another 9 seasons, good lord! Please hurry thru these years and get to Jim Tressell soon!
This week's reviews will make the last 15 years that much better. Glad I survived the 90s.
I was typing almost the same thing about two minutes behind you. I loved the interview.......he gave great answers and has that crazy ass look in his eyes the whole time.
I can't be the only BUCKEYE that enjoyed that Harbaugh interview. As much as I would love to see another 20 years of 'Rodriguezesque' records he is great for michigan. Now let's get him that 0-2 THE GAME start he deserves.
He's got about 20 redshirt freshmen to get involved too. Spot are few for true freshmen unless they are some kind of special.
I'm with you brother!
Sorry I should have been more clear. I was referring to the Saban 'at the right time' comment. Alabama had been just a downright bad program for the 10 years prior to Saban. Not a single title. Urban took over a program that was coming off of a bad year but had just finished a 10 year run under Tressel that was extraordinary. I'm thinking Urban stepped in at the right time.
Not so fast my friend. I'm not sure how following 10 years of Dubose, Franchione, and a lesser Shula even remotely compares to following 10 years of Jim Tressel (we can agree to skip 2011 right?)
Agree with this other that his resurrection of MSU football. That honor resides squarely on the shoulders of the Buckeyes former defensive coordinator.
My first game in the shoe was against #1 Iowa. A friend and I found seats on the edge of the small Iowa contingent wearing our Iowa Sucks painters hats. The Iowa fans were great as was the game.......can't say the same about the weather. The field looked like a sheet of glass. What an effort by the defense. Such a great memory!
wait until they've played more than their freshman year of high school before offering them.
....and mom and dads, don't let your kids get all tattoed up at 15-16 years old. Now get off my lawn!
Not a fan of the thin scarlet and white stripes. From a distance they will look pink.
......and this is the year we get the tight end more involved.....
In each of his final three seasons with the Cyclones, the team recorded an 8–3 regular season
Looks like he developed the trend prior to his Columbus return.
The ratings drop in the 2015-16 semis from 2014-15 had nothing to do with the absence of Ohio State........
Dude looks like he needs coach Mick
