After leaving the grueling life of a rodeo clown, I ventured back to the land of Ohio, where I re-planted my flag, grew a thriving business, and then joined a fast growing local publishing firm. I have a healthy respect for bulls.

The player interviews always show us guys who are confident and able to talk intelligently about themselves. That's a unique thing within the culture of college football. Heck, I see plenty of NFL guys who can't articulate or speak knowledgeably about themselves or their team.

Coach Meyer does an excellent job of selecting good young men and then teaching them how to represent their team successfully. That doesn't mean that guys won't screw up or make mistakes. But overall, he fields a team of quality young men. #BuckeyeProud

Raekwon McMillan and Noah Brown, to name 2 off the top of my head. You seemed to have been making the point that Meyer plays older experienced players over younger, more talented players, which is the only reason that Corey Smith was getting playing time. The truth is that Meyer almost always plays the guy who earns the playing time, regardless of their age or level of experience.

Corey Smith played a lot in 2014, also, and he played because he deserved to be out there.

I'm gonna go check out some of this action on Sunday, something fun to get the afternoon started with a BANG.

Kind of unusual that Watson from TTUN is coming to play. Wouldn't he want to go find a summer league or some other venue where he would be playing against peers, rather than play against kids that are 1-4 years younger than him? How's that going to improve his game?

Exactly right, Andy. While the media is guilty of many of the slurs thrown at them, they have a job to do. And nothing that they ask him in his press conferences have been out of line. And even if they do push the boundary of good etiquette, a media-savvy coach will handle them with ease. Most coaches handle difficult or shitty questions on a regular basis, and they're able to do so without losing their minds or turning into assholes.

In fact, if you become an asshole because of a question that a reporter asks you, that's on you, NOT the reporter.
