1. When they host OSU, you can bet it will go to Jerry World. 2. They should send that Call photo to Rutgers with a suggestion they move next year's game to Met Life Stadium.
1. Gameday mechanics will be interesting. I assume Beck will be in the box & Warinner will call plays from the sideline. 2. I heard Pelini say on XM they had Martinez practicing throwing off a pitcher's mound to force him to throw off his front foot. That's good out-of-the-box thinking. 3. I'll say it again - Nebraska had a lot of success with the diamond. I'd love to see it with Barrett at QB & Elliott, Marshall, and Samuel.
Yup. Of course that's after Cal scraped by at the bottom of the APR rankings. And an "Ol' Blue" predicted we'd be back in NCAA hot water.
Remember that chucklehead sports writer in the SF Chronicle essentially saying, "That's OK. They have to go back to Ohio." This after there was a shooting at the team hotel in Oakland.
So you can propose tinkering with the contracted dates, but not adding another round of eight teams?
IIRC, they use red markers for photographer positions on the end line.
Gameday will come to Columbus for either PSU or MSU. Also I think the 6:00 PM start time on BTN this year worked well for everyone. I'd expect another for Hawaii, Northern Illinois, or Maryland.
Respectfully disagree. Yes, the 2014 game was on 8 November and was at night. Big weather difference to add another two weeks. Think this year's Indiana game. I'll say 3:30.
VT is going to be tougher than people think. Once OSU gets past that hurdle, it will build to the final two games.
From an offensive standpoint, I'm going to say X's and O's with a healthy dash of coaching. As much as I admire Jim Tressel, imagine Pryor in this scheme with an offensive line that didn't always jump offside or snap on one. I think of the success in the 2010 Sugar Bowl when the offense resembled the current edition and the failure when it reverted to "Dave right on one." The personnel has always been there; scheme and coaching was lacking.
Question is what will be on the front page of the Dispatch Sunday. I'll bet hockey. I'll also bet on lots of the national media in town showing up to cover the celebration and writing perspective articles. I'll never forget the angry post-game Blue Jackets caller saying they looked like five Steve Bellisaris out there. That spoke volumes.
1. Keep this horse collar photo handy for residual whining Bama fans. 2. Add Jalin Marshall running the GT option. How's that for a #4?
He doesn't have to be in a graduate program at OSU. That only comes into play if he transfers. He can pursue a second undergrad major.
Two certainties. 1. No doubt on the most popular tattoo shop in Columbus. 2. They have been paid a visit by Jason Singleton or another rep. From OSU compliance.
Here is a perspective I haven't heard yet: Remember the ESPN inside look before Urban's first season? Remember Coach Drayton introducing Cardale to his sponsor and saying, "You don't know what you don't know." Cardale has come a long way and knows much.
IIRC, the NCAA permitted OSU to buy a million dollar insurance policy for Braxton if injuries prohibit pro ball. He could still collect on that. I assume they will do the same for the Duckslayer.
Can you tell me how many days until you play the team up north?
I watched it off the ESPN link on Apple TV. No idea how long it will be there.
To go from the pizza delivery guy questioning tackling to Urban saying it is one of the best tackling teams he's seen is a testament to coaching. Reloading, especially at corner will be interesting. Don't forget having Cam back helps the defense tremendously.
It sucks he didn't get a chance to apply for the normal NFL evaluation process. You can bet Urban reached out to his NFL buddies.
I'll say it again, Buckeye uniforms should always look like the stained glass in the Rotunda.
Count how many times you hear a TV talking head say, "It only takes one team to fall in love with you." About Cardale.
The Fiesta Bowl win was cathartic washing away all the near misses of the previous 34 years. When Grant threw Dorsey to the ground, I swear I had flashbacks of Springs slipping, Clements getting hit in the helmet with the punt, All vanished in the blink of an eye.
Longest coat tails will be Jim Delaney and the next TV contract. Most-watched cable show ever speaks volumes.
The biggest upticks will be Michigan from horrible to average and PSU from average to good. Hopefully Nebraska and Minnesota maintain. Big test will be OOC games next season. Have to have marquee wins for progress.
