If for some reason I'm asked to explain why 11W is by far the best resource for any and everything TOSU related, this question and answer will be the example that I point to.

There's this scene in The Godfather where Kaye is expressing with great distress to Michael, her feelings of the family and their never getting past "this, Sicillian thing". I think similarly any future success of TTUN will hinge on their ability to get past "that ichigan man thing". I think Mack would take a job like that, I'm just not sure at this point that a big program is going to offer it to him. TTUN or otherwise.

While Dontre has game breaking speed and is seemingly always one step from taking it to the house, the offense sometimes has this feel where it's almost obligated to get him the ball. Dontre no doubt has game changing ability, but watching Marshall I can't help but think he will emerge as the more potent weapon between the two. It's a win win however, as if the focus of the defense is on any one receiver, the others are more than capable of exploiting it and doing so in a big way.

He spoke at an event the morning of the Navy game this year. I'm not certain whether or not he was just trying to endear himself to our opponents, but he said he came very close to chosing the Naval Academy also. Can you imagine how the course of TOSU football history would have been changed had he chosen either of those options? For that matter CFB history.

Meyer has changed the standard and expectations for recruiting at TOSU. In the past I paid little attention to The Opening, all star games other than the Army, or who CB'd who. Now I frequently check 11W anxiously awaiting news like the kind delivered last evening. Exciting times around these parts, and I can say more than ever before that it's good to be a Buckeye!

Tougher games, tougher defenses, tougher weather conditions, tougher EzE/Samuel/Smith and the desire to say "I'll say 1 dollar Bob" leaves me on the low end. 38

Comment 21 Oct 2014

One team, so far 6-1 and sitting atop my league. My only loss so far came during my QB's (Manning) bye week. I'm concerned however, as this past week my defense (Seattle) put up a whopping -1, and my kicker (Nugent) a goose egg.

Comment 21 Oct 2014

I don't recall exactly, but Gardner has had multiple O-coordinators, run multiple offenses, and played multiple positions. That matched with the other difficience that were mentioned above really stack the deck against him. Kudos to him for staying above the negativity, whether it be racial or otherwise.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

No doubt, plus we just came off our second bye week. We have lots of players that need to knock the rust off, and playing half a game just doesn't cut it. Then, if the non starters get their opportunity to play, they will try to show that they deserve more playing time. It can all add up to something that the losing team considers running up the score. 

Comment 19 Oct 2014

Our team also plays a lot of Freshmen, and lopsided score or not they need reps. We start a redshirt Freshman QB that before this season had his last live game action two years ago in HS. One year was spent re-habing an injury. Each live snap equates to experience, and he needs to get it regardless of the score. Still good to know that the opposing coach won't take that "bait" from the media that needs something to write about.

Comment 18 Oct 2014

You know things are bad when they openly reference TOSU as the standard that they measure themselves against. Then do so by referring to us as Ohio State and Buckeyes instead of just Ohio. (Although referring to us as Ohio was never an insult). 

Comment 18 Oct 2014

Yes, AD said he has nothing to worry about as they evaluate coaches at the end of the season. Plenty of time for more losses, dump trucks and O linemen blocking other O linemen before he gets handed his walking papers.

Is it possible for Muschamp to get snatched off the bus (ala Kiffin) after a home game?

Missouri is stomping a mud hole in Florida.

Comment 18 Oct 2014

There is no way they are unaware of what they were doing, or the meaning behind it. It's a bit laughable however, as making some type of statement to or against our band says a lot about them. It's that whole, "we may lose the game but we'll win the fight" mentality. The trouble is, the skill, precision and discipline of TBDBITL might prove too much for their football team. Rutgers may want to think twice before tangling with TBDBITL.
