I'm not a fan of Coach Beck and I never have been, with that being said UFM's track record is superb and I don't believe this hire will be any different. As with any CEO, he has to hire whom he feels most comfortable with and whom he feels is the best fit for his staff, not the person I want or anyone else. We'll see what Coach Beck brings to the table soon enough. I remember not to long ago, a large majority of us Warriors wanted UFM to fire Luke Fickell, how'd that work out?

Teams should do as the Oakland Raiders do and  just not retire numbers. It makes no sense to retire a number with all of the pomp and circumstance just to have someone a few years later, wear it. I for one was pissed when tOSU allowed Katzenmoyer to wear #45, I felt it was disrespectful to Archie, whether he approved or not. John Cooper should have been man enough to tell Katzenmoyer, that # isn't available and if that's a deal breaker then good luck wherever you decide to attend school. That's what any Coach, in any sport, should tell a recruit who asks to wear a retired number. No single recruit or player is bigger than the Program or the University.

Given the current recitation of Tebow's stats in this piece, who could you possibly make a statement like that? You can combine the stats of all 3 current tOSU QB's and Tebow's are still better. He also has 2 Natty's and a Heisman. None of our QB's are even close to that. Cardale has started 3 games, J.T. had a great season, and Braxton is the most electrifying athlete in tOSU history, but he's injury prone. I'm not a fan of Tebow, but his College career is undeniably great.

Why do Buckeye Fans get so worked up over the comments of Paul Finebaum? The guy is an SEC shill with absolutely no credibility north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Who gives a shit what he says, feels, or thinks? After New Year's Day when the B1G destroyed the myth of SEC invincibility, no one cares about them anymore.

Before we start making the inevitable predictions that all the coaches on this board make all of the time, let's let Dontre get completely healthy and then evaluate what he can and can't do. Its hard to be an effective player with a broken foot. Hopefully this year, he stays healthy enough to get the 'shine' he covets. Buona Fortuna Dontre, get well and then rip it.

According to UFM and Zach Smith, Jalin is moving outside to make room at the H for Curtis Samuel and Dontre. He said there'll be no more of Samuel getting 10 plays per game. I believe Jalin will thrive on outside and Curtis Samuel will be this year's break-out star. He's dynamic with the ball in his hands. The threat of he, Dontre, and Jalin coupled with Brown and @CantguardMike on the outside will terrify opposing DC's. I just hope Marcus Baugh steps up this season.

If your point is so valid, then why doesn't he just commit? He doesn't because he's not ready and he's not sure, which means things can always change. That's the way it is with CFB Recruiting, it needs an "early signing" period like CBB. I stopped following recruiting after the Stephon Diggs debacle, I read Birm once or twice a month because he's the best in the biz, but I wait until NLOI Day because that's the only day that really means anything. I have no idea what Nick Bosa will do, but neither do you or anyone else at this point but the young man himself. Nothing in CFB Recruiting is definitive until NLOI day. Naming a leader means nothing at any point, neither does a verbal commitment, really. 

Comment 28 Apr 2015

In the grand scheme of things what does this really mean? So he named tOSU his leader, so did Jarrett Guarantano, before he committed to Tennessee. None of this means shit until NLOI Day!!!

Comment 20 Apr 2015

Way too much fuss for a young man who's only played in the 'Spring Game', he made some decent plays against back-ups and also-rans in a practice game and now he's being anointed the 2nd coming of Randy Gradishar? The hyperbole around this team is stunning. I know the Natty is making everyone giddy with anticipation and excitement but let's not go overboard. With the quality and depth at LB on this Team, Connor will most probably redshirt. Give him the annual "Bam Childress" Award and let's wait until Fall before we start with the comparisons to the all-time greats.

Comment 15 Apr 2015

Stop insulting people's intelligence, everyone in the Football Universe knows exactly who this tweet is referencing and why. It's a classless move for an adult and a professional CFB Coach. The reasons an athlete chooses a particular school are very personal to that athlete. As adults why should we question that choice. Jarrett Guarantano and his family made what they feel is the best decision for them, just as Tristen Wallace made what he and family feel is the best decision for them. If you look at both situations in a pragmatic manner, maybe UT was the best move for him. tOSU has more QB's than they can play now and there's talk of Borrow possibly greyshirting, if the situation at UT is more conducive to early PT which it seems to be, then UT is the better option at this point. Maybe he just liked UT better than tOSU and that's his prerogative. We can't be so blinded by fanaticism that we forget what's right. The tweet is beneath contempt and Smith at the very least owes Jarrett Guarantano and his family an apology!!

Comment 14 Apr 2015

Nicknames are best when they just flow, contrived and forced nicknames sound like just that. The Silver Bullets are just that and the current D has earned that nickname back. Piranhas are Coach Coombs nickname for his group and the 'Slobs' was generated by Coach Easy Ed. Any attempt to attach buffoonish nicknames to the other units is stupid and a waste of time.

Comment 06 Apr 2015

I think the 'title' of the Post is "FAVORITE" player. I could name probably 50 Buckeyes that I absolutely love, but when pressed to name my favorite it has to be Jack Tatum!!

I agree 1000%, that's the problem that I see occurring, in the NFL the adage has always been; 'if you have more than one starting QB then you don't have any," this scenario, while its fun to talk about on Message Boards in the euphoria of a NC off-season, is going to come back and bite this team in the ass. I remember the Stanley Jackson/Joe Germaine controversy, as well as the Justin Zwick/Troy Smith situation. Both nearly tore those teams apart as players ended up taking sides. I still feel Cardale should have declared for the NFL Draft, he got some bad advice, but that's another thread for another day. I just hope it doesn't do the same thing to this team, but I know it will. You can't make me believe that two of those 3 guys will be happy with sitting, especially if the one that ends up starting has even one mediocre performance. The fans will go crazy clamoring for one of the others. It's going to be a mess.

WBB Head Coach C. Vivian Stringer, a HOF'er, said on Monday that the facilities needed to be upgraded to B1G level or they would fall behind in recruiting.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

You could make the same argument for many more states even some in the B1G, i.e. MN, IL and IN. Rutgers isn't a Football Power, they don't win very much and the facilities there are shitty, so why would a top flight talent consider going there? There's also no reason to believe it will get much better anytime soon.

Comment 10 Mar 2015

This is why I stay away from the whole recruiting process and just read Birm every couple of weeks. When you're dealing with children they just don't make sense. Nothing has changed at tOSU for this young man, his primary recruiter and position coaches are still the same. So what is his issue? It's the heat from his HS Coach and the fans in the state he lives in. He should go to TSUN, it may be better for him there, its certainly done wonders for Kyle Kalis and Shane Morris.
