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.

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.

Comment 17 Aug 2016

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.

Comment 09 Aug 2016

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.

Comment 07 Aug 2016

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.
