  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing Eddie George in 1995 rushing all over a Simeon Rice-led Illinois defense to the tune of 314 yards, 3 TDs, and even catching one... Orlando Pace didn't look too shabby either... it was a wet cold evening, and all the ponchos were out, but will never forget his milestone. He was a man among boys.

Here's some views from Mr. Trent Dilfer (Mr. "Elite 11"):

Well then you're just gonna have to wake him up now wont't you?

Just watched an interview of Doran Grant talking about J.T. - and Doran just comes off as someone who won't mince words and talk B.S., so to hear him say that "J.T. is very accurate...can make the hard throws, the easy throws..." with confidence makes me feel even more excited for this season in an odd way.  I think the poll should be who starts next year at QB after we win the natty with J.T.

So here's a question... if we win the natty with J.T. this year, what happens next year with Braxton and J.T.?  Inquiring minds want to know... If we go all the way, then I would almost advice BM to go pro - though it's hard to say what his draft stock would be

Get well Brax and I hope you get drafted and given a shot in the NFL.  In the meantime, the spotlight is now on you, JT Barrett.  Let your light shine!

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Always fun to read about our competitors.  It's hard to think that Beamer is as old as he is, and in his latest pictures from the ALS challenge, it looks like time is catching up with him.  I'm sure Bud would be a good successor, but it will be interesting where the administration and the AD want to go when Frank's time comes to an end.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

I voted 'Yes' and not because I'm a rational being.  I voted 'Yes' because no matter how much you run numbers and stack odds one way or another, we do not play robots who are error-free, and we cannot predict the future.  From a probability standpoint, it's still 50/50 to make the playoffs, and that's enough for me.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Ok, so aside from the site going down last night based on the mass disappointment, and having some sleep to reflect on this, I predict that we are going to look back at the end of November and say,

"Wow, as bad as I feel for Braxton, I am glad that our team was quite fine with a young JT.  It really allowed our team to become closer together as a team and not just a collective of talent and it even allowed us to gain back that mystique we had in the 2012 season - you know, the mystique that gave us 12 wins in a tough-it-out way.  The mystique that prompted Urbz to practically salivate over the character and talent of his seniors for their leadership as a whole..."

If we were betting people and had already placed huge bets in Vegas, then I'd be truly distressed about the losses but we are tOSU no matter what should transpire this fall, and I hate to say it, but I have an almost giddy feeling about how we are going to shock some with ridiculous expectations.... Or if you're the SEC, you'll say, "yea, but look at your soft conference and schedule"

I'm not a superstitious man, but those initials, JT, mean something around our parts.  In JT we trust (part deux)?

Comment 15 Aug 2014

I still remember when we switched to this new athletic logo, and I didn't like it then, and I still don't like it now.  They need an overhaul, and with the revenue we have been bringing in through football and basketball, you'd think there would be some discussion on this investment.  

Johnny, if you write an open letter to Gene Smith and President Drake, I'll be the first to sign to support!

Comment 15 Aug 2014

Oh, I'm probably as gullible as it comes when coaches speak - but easy to do when you have a coach like Urbz who speaks the truth.  That said, I believe Brax is completely healthy - it's just that healthy doesn't always mean having a full range of motion.  Having had a similar surgery as Brax did, I only got 905 of my range of motion back, and his motion kind of reminds me of myself right now... Just hoping the best for him (and us).

Comment 15 Aug 2014

1. We should not be surprised.  This happens at every school - unfortunately, some just don't get caught.  Judge his poor decisions, and be mad at the brokenness of the few bad apples, but we don't know him to pass judgement on him.

2. We shouldn't care what happens up there.  Let's just mind our own business so long as he isn't making it our business to mind him (eg Lewan decking an OSU fan).

3. Hoke is a joke, but someone get the man some media training so he stops making us feel embarrassed for him.

Comment 14 Aug 2014

Philly was giving them a good impression since they started camp, but it has to count when the lights are on, so here's to hoping they make the team!  Go Bucks!

Comment 14 Aug 2014

I was about to say the same thing... at the 30sec mark, his throwing motion makes me to think that his shoulder isn't fully flexible like it used to be unless he changed it in some funky way... it's not a sidearm throw but not as high as he has shown in the past too... ugh... will the real slim shady please stand up!

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Back in Black is nice, too.  HT is reaching legendary status - I am lucky to have a local bar that features only craft beers, and the owner said that he had to drive up from NY to VT to get as much as he could, and they were limiting how many they were giving out, so limited production at the moment, but it's a divine IPA (and I'm not really even an IPA fan).

Comment 13 Aug 2014

If you like IPAs... Heady Topper (from Vermont) is a douple/imperial IPA you must try before you die.  If you like darker IPAs, then it's somewhat close counterpart is Firestone Walker's "Wookie Jack" (black rye IPA)

Comment 11 Aug 2014

This is such sad news on so many levels.  I'll always thank him for helping me to appreciate the underappreciated genius he was when he started on his early journey...

Comment 08 Aug 2014

WOW on many levels... I know these are edited, but:

Rod Smith - come on down big man, way to show you're hungry!

JT Barrett - throwing a few good ones in tight coverage

Corey Smith - making that clip ending grab for a TD

No one wants to be a back-up - this is what's going to make us truly great this season!

Comment 08 Aug 2014

'Los straight-up was beastin' last night given his opportunities.  Boom Herron didn't do too bad either.  Sanzenbacher reminded us why we loved him during his days at OSU, Roby had a nice play to help cause a fumble, and TP didn't look too bad ... but it's the preseason.  Let's hope that this is a trend through the rest of the month and the season!  

I believe Philly Brown plays tonight...
