I dunno, it worked out pretty well for Michigan to run a decent coach out of town to hire one of their own...

Sadly, I'm frequently surprised to find that a movie called "Ass" is not number one at the box office. It's coming.  Oh, is it coming.

I can see both sides of the Krenzel Argument.  I would add, though, that Courtney Jackson of Arizona State feels that Joe Germaine deserves consideration for "most clutch" QB.  Joe was pretty unflappable and, I think, had Craig beat from a  sheer talent standpoint.  Maybe its because I was a freshman at OSU at the time, but seeing Joe lead that last drive in in the 1997 Rose Bowl  with the bloody band aid on his chin is an indelible Buckeye image for me.

My niece has Down Syndrome, so BIG thanks to 11 W for doing this and a personal thanks to everyone who participated or donated.  Every little bit helps.

Maybe it's less the coaches can't scheme against anything but 4-3 defenses and more about basically an entirely new offensive team still struggling with the base concepts.  If you can't do the basics , it really limits on the fly adjustments. Time will tell, I guess, because I'm not expecting we'll see a lot of base defenses until we prove we can beat what worked for VT and Navy

I'm with you, but running into the line without positive result twice then hucking it down field on slow developing pass plays looks the same no matter who is calling the plays.  I think that's where some of the frustration lies.

Also, will someone please help Bo buy a jacket that fits?  He looked like he was wearing his Dad's suit at Media Days , too.

Also, didn't say he had to have played for the Buckeyes.  Your argument would be better if you said "Are you from Cleveland" not "Did you play for Cleveland."  Even so, not good, because a professional sports team exists solely to have fans.  In theory, Ohio State's football team is simply a representation of the University and its student body and alumni.

I would also add that the student athlete receives far more academic support than is routinely available to the non-athlete.  Privileged scheduling, tutoring, etc.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it would be easy to carry an academic load and put in the hours and hours it takes to be an athlete, but I also think that the athlete signs up for this and the universities, generally, do a lot to put them in a position to succeed.

I've never been a big fan of anyone who can't enjoy a win without trying to rub the other teams nose in it.  It wasn't a chippy game, OSU players hadn't been talking crap about Dayton all week.  Be excited.  But have class and cheer for your team and not against the other one.

But, he is Australian, and those dudes are prone to going "walkabout."  So, probably worth mentioning.
