Yea I don't get it either. He seems kinda like a clown but it doesn't seem like something to get as riled up about as everyone does on here.

I really think that by the end of his career, Barrett will be the clear cut GOAT. Clearly he had the greatest single season of any qb. I can't wait to see what he does next year.

I think our defense is much better suited to slow cooper than it was for Watkins last year. We play more press, and we are much better at stoping the screen game, which is how Watkins just destroyed our d last year. 

Comment 07 Dec 2014

Did I say that at some point, or are you just reflecting people's attitudes on here? Cause I'll admit, in the VT game, I called for his head, but I've since come around. 

Tonight jt was just beautiful man. 

Comment 05 Dec 2014

We have a couple coaches who are pretty good at developing QBs too ya know. 

Comment 25 Nov 2014

I will forever believe that the reason Tressel covered for the guys who got caught up in tatgate was how saw the way that Maurice Clarrett had his life basically destroyed for his transgressions. After that, I think he said "Never again, we handle all this in house. I'm not leaving my guys out to dry again, and the chips will fall where they will." Tress always seemed like a real OG ride-or-die mothafucka in that sense. 

That was what made him a great coach and even better man. 

Comment 24 Nov 2014

2 things:

1. The transformation of Troy Smith from last recruit in the class who took money from boosters, to the Heisman Trophy winning legend he ended his career as, is the single greatest testiment to the type of man and coach Jim Tressel was. Don't get me wrong, I love UFM as much as anyone, but Coach Tressel (as well as Troy Smith) will always have a special place in my heart.

2. The term "make them be loyal to their soil" is one of the best things I've read in a long time. Again, God I love Troy Smith. 

Comment 17 Nov 2014

With 4 great recruits already committed, and a couple more possibly coming soon (McCall, Haskins and the like) maybe we won't run into it too much this year. 

Comment 10 Nov 2014

Go Blue Aces and all man, but he beat our defense like they stole something.
