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.

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.

Born in Cincinnati, grew up and went to college in California, has coached in Texas (admittedly longest amount of time), Iowa, and Ohio.  All I'm saying is he is not just a Texas guy.  Now should we tab him as the heir apparent to Ohio State? No sir, I think that worrying about that is good amount of years away, and you never know what changes between now and then.

Admittedly the Cooper years was before I got into College Football (I was 10 when Jim Tressel was hired) but from what I know looking back, we would have lost to Michigan, and either Illinois or Purdue, probably both.  

So that is 10-3 heading into bowl season, probably the Capitol One Bowl against Auburn, who wasn't great but had beaten Alabama at the end the season when they were ranked #9.  In a toss up I say we win, because why not.

End the season 11-3 with a win over Auburn but a loss to SCUM? Yea I'll take Tress.

Its not like we aren't getting Ohio recruits in 2017, we have 6 right now (including Marcus Williamson, who is now at IMG).

Comment 03 Aug 2016

Outrageously good, half my money went there when I was at OSU.  They opened one down here in Dallas, and I go all the damn time.

Comment 29 Jul 2016

It's going to take a year like this for JT, where we aren't loaded with proven playmakers.  No running back is going to be featured enough in this offense to win the Heisman, they just won't get the carries (i.e. Zeke last year).  However, if a qb like JT has a bunch of proven receivers and a killer running back, the narrative will end up "anybody could succeed here."  So what im saying is, JT wins it this year, or it could be a few years until someone is truly in contention for the Heisman here again.

The Good News: Literally no national powers can beat us for the guys who are at the top of our list for recruiting.

The Bad News: Apparently USF can.

Comment 27 Jul 2016

"He committed to OSU on twitter a few days after the national championship win in january 2015."  Almost positive he committed the same night as the game, alongside Shaun Wade and Kareem Walker.  Like just after the game ended.

Congrats Josh Newberg, 3 minutes of googling and I have the story more correct than you do.

Comment 26 Jul 2016

"I really haven't had fun watching the BasketBucks since the 06-07 season."  It is funny that you say that because I haven't had fun watching the BasketBucks since that 2011-2012 season.  I know it was the last time we went to the Final Four, but since Sully left, the games just haven't been that enjoyable to me.

Comment 26 Jul 2016

1.Starting Cardale over JT is in my opinion, the worst mistake Coach Meyer will ever make while Coach at Ohio State.  If it is, I certainly forgive him.

2. The only alternative uniform we should ever wear again are the Blackout Uniforms, and we should only wear them once per year.

3. I think Ohio State has some of the worst Wal-Mart fans in the country.  I don't think you need to have gone to Ohio State to be a fan, but I think if you put the vast majority of our obnoxious fans on the Oval, they wouldn't be able to find their way to the Horseshoe.

You guys are killing me.  Yes this tweet was stupid,  because 16/17 year olds do stupid things. Nothing like a bunch of grown men getting on a message board to shit on a teenager who has been nothing but loyal to our team, but hasn't developed the way anyone thought he would.
