Scottie McMullen, he's from my hometown, I know him and his family pretty well, hell he was the one who taught me how to throw a good spiral.

That being said though, Troy Smith was the greatest QB in OSU history.

Good call on ferentz, especially early 2000's. Just didn't think of him because I was like 12-15 during those seasons. 

Comment 22 Aug 2014

Disappointing, but not surprising. However, he stayed committed for a long time after Mike left. Any chance that maybe he was hoping his father's health would improve and decide to still be a Buckeye?

No, James Franklin will win. It's the "hey look, the new guys team didn't go 0-12!" award. If it actually went to the best coach in the Big Ten, on of the three of Jim Tressel, Mark Dantonio, and Urban Meyer would have won it every year since 2001.

In his defense, the first week of school last semester, when the wind chill was -25 or -30 I was seriously considering transfering as far south as I could, like Key West Community College south.

Which is more important to you when looking at a potential position coach: your relationship with the coach, or the results he gets in preparing you for the next level? As in, would you rather have a mean-as-a-rattlesnake coach who you knew would prepare you for the pros, or trade that certainty for a position coach you have a more amicable relationship with?

He didn't hit the gas he downshifted which raises your RPMs. He downshifted because there was a caution flag out because of Ward's wreck. 

On the "well lit track" part, have you ever been to a dirt track? There is dirt flying everywhere, you can hardly see, and the tracks are not well lit enough to really pierce the dirt when the race is going. Ward's almost entirely black fire suit also contributed making it that much harder to see him. 

It is a terrible accident, and it really sucks that a 20 year old guy died last night. Thinking that Stewart would kill a guy on purpose over a low level sprint car race though is one of the silliest things I have ever heard.

Now it's at 667 aka number of the neighbor of the beast. 

Comment 29 Jun 2014

I was actually asking when was the last time he was at Notre Dame, I hadn't ever heard of him making a visit there. I figured I must have just missed it. 

Comment 23 Jun 2014

While I agree that 2014 could have been handled better, I.e. Kyle Allen, I'm definitely glad we have Stephen Collier. Kid seems to be working his ass off and who knows, Troy Smith wasn't a particularly highly ranked or lauded recruit, and he was as good as anyone ever was for Ohio State.

I just graduated OSU but I was a brother of SAE while I was there and last semester we recruited somewhere around 7 or 8 kids from St. X to join our chapter, who know both of the Hilliard brothers.  While I do think he comes to Ohio State, the fact that he is following a lot of OSU students on twitter may not be a relevant indication of that, because while we may not have been able  to pull many football players from the Cincinnati private schools in the past, OSU has always pulled a ton of frat boys from them.
