MSU is frequently a bad match-up for us, especially when our team is as soft as this year's squad. They foul every possession, turn the game into a rugby scrum and dare the refs to call everything. It's a great strategy against a team like this one, that, aside from 6'4"(?) Tate has little energy on the boards and would rather not play MSU's brutal style of hoops. Russell's great, but he clearly doesn't hold up well against physical teams...it's best just to beat him up.
Glad to see Scott step up. Seniors gotta play like seniors. C'mon Amir! C'mon Slammin' Sammy...gonna need energy and effort to beat Sparty, and take the pressure off Silk.
I'm still angry with Herbstreit for
1) His god awful performance at *ichigan in 1993 when I sat frozen and hungover in the South endzone of the Big outhouse attempting to not punch everyone in the face, while Herbie tossed pass after pass to dudes in ugly helmets
2) Still don't know why he voted us Ohio State (12 -1) 9th in the 2010 final AP poll behind a few 2-loss teams and even one 3-loss team. Only he and Fowler of all the voters voted us that low. We finished 5th.
I'm still with TP. Something seems to have broken in him while Pryor was there. Troll me all you want. I'd take Spielman in the booth any day over Mr. Frosted Tips....props to his dad though.
Damn. What a haul! Welcome Gents to Buckeye Nation. May you make us proud...and hopefully we'll do the same for you.
The blocking looked like Bollman had his prints on that.
198 - but I hope not.
We'll need a name for these guys...mad bombers or something. They're going to jack up a ton of 3's. So glad that Sam Thompson's 3 ball is coming into shape. Our interior defense still looks slow and I think we'll have trouble matching up with big teams - rebounding will become an issue, but I'm excited about the season. It's going to be a great ride.
Thanks. Thank you very much. Proud to be a Buckeye and a loyal 11Wer.
Astounding how quickly our representation in the NFL along the OL has gone from pathetic to...damn...Buckeye linemen everywhere.
399 (201 of it EZE)
427...Penn State will slow the whole game down a bit.
85. Lock down yo.
I don't deserve to go any more than the next dude. But I do want to thank the donors for their absolutely sterling act of Buckeyehood. Woody smiles down on you!
Love the interview! Thanks for being a great Buckeye! That '01 game in AA is one of my all time favorites. It's cool how J Wells keeps that Buckeye love in his heart. He'll always be welcome back in Cbus. It's a pity that some of the local players pass on that special bond with their home team - and here comes a guy from 1000 miles away who "got it".
I thought the shoe was now 3rd largest behind the Big Outhouse and Beaver. UT's 4th?
I was curious about the way MLive was covering this story. I've argued that AA, because of its size and culture, has an insularity to it that is very different than Columbus. There's barely a whisper of this story. None in the past few days. I can't imagine this happening with the Dispatch (let alone the wolves at ESPN).
Never count that rosy cheeked assassin out. The Warriors ought to sign him for marketing purposes alone - the NBA is so desperately short of interesting personalities and GS hasn't had a compelling player to root for in years.
One year...but two of my all-time favorite Buckeyes. I'll always root for their happiness.
DJ - Chillicothe makin' you Marionaires jealous? Represent Ross County! ugh. I'm going back to visit next week. I might have to pop somebody in the chops for too much mustard on a burger or giving me diet coke instead of regular.
March on. Great links today. Edifying, but I'm going to be late for work.
Hooray for Mike Conley! I usually fill out a scarlet colored one, and then another where the teams I hate the most go the furthest....of course that one did really well this year again...but Duke didn't hold up their end of the hate quotient bargain.
GO BUCKEYES! This should have more than a half dozen comments. I love football and hoops, but I'm also pretty jacked with the Bucks win championships in other sports....but because the other sports are hardly ever on TV, it's hard to really be a fan.
Still - this is crazy impressive.
Sherman baby. Gotta tank named after him that helped kick some Nazi tail too.
I could have a lot of fun with negative recruiting against Alabama - that sort of stuff was reputedly why
Eli Payton Manning spurned Ole Miss for Tennessee - surely not a great step up - but considering Ole Miss' rock-bottom nature.
It would be really cool if 'Bama or some other bastion of racism would lose a few high profile recruits with a conscience. Just a letter is all it would take.
I was part of a group that did this from within another campus about 15 years ago....for basketball. It was very effective.
