My nominations (defensive line was pretty damn good in the 90's):
Great character guys = great team chemistry.
Great team chemistry can lead to great team accomplishments...
I was also pointing out Dontre showing folks how to properly use social media...in all seriousness, that's a credit to him in regards to what he recently endured from
the assholes those who don't understand what it means to be a fan.
I don't know if he's a liability...but he's far behind Devin Smith, Michael Thomas, and Evan Spencer. Not to mention the touches distributed out to the H-backs/TE's/RB's.
He's still getting PT from what I've seen, hopefully when the next opportunity presents itself he makes the most of it.
Not sure what to expect regarding Spence returning to the field at OSU, but holding out hope. In any case, very happy to hear he is well.
Also want to say big ups to Dontre Wilson for sticking by a fellow Buckeye in times of trouble...
That's a great comment, CB.
He's really made that two TE set a dangerous look for opposing defenses. Hopeful Baugh can step in and keep that going next season, as it's a position of need for the good guys.
It's been a struggle, and there's still plenty of work to do, but my hopes were after the VT loss that OSU would be the team no one wanted to face at the end of the year.
The threat is real.
Perfect time for me to give full credit to EzE on what's been a terrific season for him. I was hopeful that Rod Smith would handle the load, I guess I was still drunk on that PowerBack Ade that El Guapo offered up the last two seasons.
Elliott has stepped in admirably, making a sound impact in all phases - running (acknowledging his proven effectiveness between the tackles at that), receiving, and blocking.
The two TE set has been pretty effective, with Heuerman being utilized more for his blocking - I'd think he's more polished there than Vannett.
The search function is best for a subject specific (a player, a coach, etc.) search that turns up direct results in either the headline or blog/forum topic content. An example would be a search on Troy Smith, where I instantly get a good dozen or so entries with his name in the header.

It isn't a vacuum, with thousands of active users on the site there's always going to be crossover. Post respectfully - either as an OP or a commenter...trolls don't last around here.
Fickell has been at OSU for nearly (not counting brief stints in the NFL and Akron) 20 years now...easy choice.
Are we sure it was a man who hit that Alabama fan?
My pet peeve is that the majority of it is more entertainment (re: TV ratings) based, and not necessarily the unfiltered analysis I'd prefer.
Still hold high hopes for this year, but the offense (the entire team, actually) looks to be something special in 2015.
Hell, he'd probably make a better quarterback.
STOP F'N WITH MY HEAD DAN SNYDER.
