  • 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.

They just had a players-only meeting... 

I can only imagine some passionate speeches by the captains that were along the lines of 'We only have each other, and they aren't any bigger, faster, or stronger than us, so play this like it's your last game'... if they get crushed after a speech and play like that, they will go the way of Northwestern last year after we beat them.

The world of corporate America runs on the almighty dollar, but it's too bad that ESPN can't place a firewall between its business interests and journalism... oh wait, ESPN is about Entertainment, not necessarily journalism... well, they are failing on the entertainment front, too.

It seems we have this rivalry debate every year during the PSU week.  Although their reputation for football was once formidable, and they have some traditions, it's not really been a game where so much was on the line like with UM.  So though I get excited about beating them to a pulp at each chance we get, I can only point to the Kijana Carter years for any sense of a rivalry that never materialized ...

So i say no.  We are not rivals

Well, as long as this post wasn't about USC's song girls posing in a calendar, I think we have succeeded in safely affirming the gift of vision.

Apologies if some feel that this post was pointlessness =)

I just love Josh's bad-assery - in fact, I'd say that he comes off so bad-ass that it spills into Morpheus-like proportions in his hangry way.  Did this sentiment deserve a forum post... meh, probably not, but did I mention that I like Josh's bad-assery temperment?  It's just...bad-ass.

2 things...

1. Remember that "E" in ESPN stands for "Entertainment" or at least until they officially reincorporated as ESPN Inc. - so their tabloid sports journalism is not to be trusted in any way, shape, or form

2. They should be sued for false and misleading headlines to content that has nothing to do with us - the title suggests it's about us, but the video has no mention of us or about us... they are capitalizing on OSU fans for clicks:

Haven't heard or watched the presser, but when reading his comments, there is a sense of anger underlying his statements.  He's so true to his feelings in his answers, and refreshing aside, I love how he's letting this team know that he has his foot on the gas pedal, and wants his team on board, because this roadtrip has a certain destination in mind. Get'em Urbz!

TAM doesn't have a defense... they took off their wolf's clothes and are showing their BIG 12 colors again.  I kinda look at it like, SEC = defense, BIG 12 = offense, PAC 12 = offense, 1 team with Def (Stanford), B1G = uhm, I mean tOSU = great balance. =)

I was thinking this somewhat, too.  I think they are just getting double teamed a lot.  

We haven't really heard them get praised consistently, but I really think they have not yet hit full stride.  I'd like to think that they are getting hungrier with every game, and they have winning momentum, which helps with confidence.  I think they will be downright scary by Nov. - Frazier and Miller are starting to come on in filler roles for Mr. Spence, and Bosa is showing that he can play inside to help and mix things up if needed.  

I'd like the front four to absolutely shutdown the rushing attacks of our opponents though.  I know it's a numbers game often, and involves LBs to help out to shut it all down, but I don't like seeing opponents get 5+ yds on any carry - garbage time or not.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

It's so refreshing to see all weapons being used, and used well.  I know that there were many questions about what our identity is on offense, but the I think identity is clear - Ball Goes To Open Man, then pick your poison between Eze, Rod, and Curtis

Love seeing how my wish came true - seeing the yards increase by quarter is the kind of curve I love to see.  

Great infographic again!

Rock!  Thanks for this update.  

This class looks phenomenal and we haven't even mentioned the 'could be Buckeyes' to help make this class straight out scary... Can't wait to see the next wave just kill it when they get to camp... Thanks
