5 Years ago i would have said no way, but with Alabama doing it with Lane Kiffin and now apparently Steve Sarkisian and us doing it with Greg Schiano, as well as Will Muschamp and Gene Chizik elsewhere around the country, I wouldn't rule out something like that happening.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't know that the offense is playing well enough for a program to look at us and say "I need either Beck or Warriner at the helm right now!" like i am sure plenty of Buckeye fans are hoping.

Seems weird that this coach is taking shots at an 18 year old about not being a good fit for their team if it was such a mutual decision.  Guy sounds an awful lot like fans of recruiting who say "we didn't want him here anyways."

"Let's hope they don't look like this" you mean you hope a Big Ten Offensive Lineman won't hold our defensive linemen or that it will get called by the Refs? Yea, and Jabrill Peppers isn't overrated.

Kid is a true freshman playing with a bunch of skill position players who are freshmen and sophomores outside of OJ Howard.  Even if it isn't this year, that offense is going to be nasty as they develop more together.

Comment 29 Sep 2016

Dude clearly has a problem so yea i feel bad for him.  Browns would be stupid to keep him on the team at this point though.

Comment 26 Sep 2016

Good, move them down, make them angry and feel disrespected.  Just going to give Urbz and Co. more fuel to motivate them with.  The polls mean nothing right now.

Comment 19 Sep 2016

I'd say every kid is different, but Oklahoma and OSU are supposedly Okudah's top 2, so seeing us win over them in their house, especially with the way the secondary played, can only be a good thing.

However, I agree, in general 1 game is not going to usually be the determining factor, but in this case, this one game is probably a good thing.

Well its played at the Cotton Bowl during the State Fair of Texas, which is easily double the size of the Ohio State Fair. Was down there for the fair during the game last year and it was absolutely nuts.  I wouldn't trade the back and forth of the Game, but the Red River Shootout is pretty fantastic.

To be fair to the kid, college is a big transition, and if grade issues are going to happen, it is usually early in their career.

Comment 01 Sep 2016

No losses are acceptable, we aren't Michigan.  I don't need losses to make me appreciate the wins.

Comment 26 Aug 2016

I'll be in Columbus for the Northwestern game, may attend an SMU game for kicks, and am tentatively attending the Red River Shootout this year.  There was talk of going up to Norman for the Oklahoma-OSU game but that didn't work out logistically, I also may get tickets from work to the Texas Tech-Baylor or the Texas A&M-Arkansas games in Arlington, but neither of those are confirmed yet.  So final count is anywhere from 1-5 games this year, only one for the Buckeyes.

God damn.  When Vrabel left, I thought there was no way we could get an upgrade over him.  and then we hired LJ SR.  That speech actually gave me chills.

Comment 17 Aug 2016

I agree with you on all the rest as I said above.  I think it's way to soon to crown him the heir apparent, but if he were to come here I am not worried about UT snapping him up.  We are one of those programs that we don't lose coaches to another program.
