Saw the 1968 Rose Bowl live. Was there in Tempe for the greatest college football game ever. Flew the OSU flag while stationed in Afghanistan.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Nothing will ever top beating Miami in Tempe. When Cie Grant thew Dorsey to the ground, all the close, up not quite, national championship moments such as 1976 and 1980, Ron Springs slip, Clements punt to the helmet, etc. washed away.

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.

So you can propose tinkering with the contracted dates, but not adding another round of eight teams?

Comment 26 Jan 2015

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. 

Comment 26 Jan 2015

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. 

Comment 25 Jan 2015

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?

Comment 20 Jan 2015

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. 

Comment 16 Jan 2015

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.

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. 

Comment 15 Jan 2015

Count how many times you hear a TV talking head say, "It only takes one team to fall in love with you." About Cardale.

Comment 14 Jan 2015

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.
