From being substandard (that's a nice way of saying they were terrible at parts) the past couple of years, to being that much more relied upon as the offense faces a crisis...
The gauntlet has been thrown down.
Your move, D.
There's no shock value to the depth of ESPN's absurdity anymore.
I didn't forward Ramzy's article to the Mrs...
That is a falsity, your honor.
Monday will mark the 20th anniversary that I moved into my freshman dorm (not at OSU, sigh).
All by my lonesome.
Of course, I was 21 years old and fresh out of the water (just completed my enlistment in the Nav). I still remember being pissed about having to live on-campus (required for all incoming freshmen attending full-time)...and this stupid little dry campus initiative...
By Halloween I was considering an offer to be an RA. I was also helping my fellow freshmen find, uh, weekend "entertainment". One of those ventures was lucrative, the other offered free cable tv.
I moved off-campus at year's end.
That's a great story Chief - put a smile on my face just like #28 did back in 2001.
I appreciate the sentiment, very nearly took up an offer to go a couple weeks back. My work schedule has been pretty hectic as of late (I need a serious change here), and nearly shelved a family vacation to the Jersey Shore Labor Day week - thought about going to see the home team.
Story short, the vacation is back on. Would have thought about the Maryland game, but the Mrs. and I have a wedding (her friend, not mine) to attend.
I'm going to make up for the missed opportunity someday, on my terms. I'd love nothing better than to get home at see the good guys in the 'Shoe - along with meeting some cool people from this website I know of...
To answer your question, I'm in Frederick - working in Rockville (at the moment), the Mrs. in D.C. Love Baltimore - haven't made as many visits the past couple years, but as our toddler gets older we're finding our way back (took him to the aquarium last month).
My wife was almost apologetic when she heard about this opportunity - especially after serving in the Navy (four years, many moons ago), it would have been a great first game to get to.
That's why I initially didn't want to post on the thread. My time will come, and there are definitely others who've served/who are serving more worthy than me.
There's no understating the pressure Barrett will have/feel, but the Buckeyes pass this test as a team.
MY expectations are lowered, but I remain hopeful that the other question marks (offensive line, rise in play at the skill spots and defensive back seven) are answered in confidence as the season goes on.
J.T. steps into a unique situation, and I think it was great for UFM and staff to immediately state they are not asking him to be #5, but the distributor. There's enough talent for this spread offense to click - without the onus being on just the quarterback. This doesn't have to be a similar scenario that Schichter, Pryor and Braxton stepped into.
Power of the units, success of the team.
Let's go Buckeyes (9 friggin' days!).
I don't understand the question...
I was going somewhere, details are foggy...
Sad to read.
My condolences to the Bitsko family, as well as the Kent State community.
Pessimism isn't really my style, but not warming up to the idea of going with a rotation.
Any 90's kids out there remember the two year ordeal that was the Stan Jackson-Joe Germaine Experience know what I'm speaking of.
I went with the worst record on campus...
...and many more...
Happy Birthday, 11W!
No matter what, I just hope Joe Thomas knows he has a very supportive fanbase in his corner.
I'm right there with you, SD.
But it's a good...well, Andy Dufresne said it best:
It may not happen the way we may have thought, but still happy to entertain the possibility that Braxton Miller closes out a spectacular career at Ohio State a champion.
