  • 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.

Brilliant use of Miami on so many levels Mr. Ramzy:

1. Miami is still our beatch

2. As Urban said, football is cyclical, but ours is just shorter...We have made it to the pinnacle again to get our 2nd natty while 'watching' Miami never truly recover after losing to us in '02

3. They said we were 'lucky' to win in '02 and that it is better to be lucky than good... well we checked the latter box so all the pundits can just #dealwithit

I think it's fair to say that many automatically thought, 'we're getting another national title with Urban'. My emotional hedge was that as much as I hoped for one, I wasn't going to get down on Urban if he didn't win one, since we're 'not the SEC', but we can't say enough about how he was able to flip the script on stopping himself, and our players from believing a lie about the B1G and themselves. He knows how to get monkeys off backs, and he sure as heck found a great year to do it.  Living in the afterglow is rather nice to think about and the future couldn't be brighter - need my shades~!

I have to admit that I was a bit caught by surprise when he said:

“I think I just was obviously chomping at the bit to get back in it, but to sit there and say I thought that we could somehow get back to the national title, it's everybody's dream and goal, but it's very complicated and everything has to align perfectly for this to happen," he said the day before the national title game.

"So no, it never really crossed my mind."

I took this to suggest that he took his dream job in his home state with a very hedged outlook, which may be why he didn't mention national titles so much.  Shame on me for expecting anything less... but credit to him that it remained a 'dream and goal'... it's a humbled outlook, and one that paid dividends and validated that his plan is truly 'infallible'.  Love that he bring kids in with character to make it work.

We are spoiled with legends at our school... So proud to be a Buckeye!

Nothing like seeing them put out fires with their own cesspool...  312 days of seeing them get their hopes ridiculously hight only to be handed a nice prick of our needle to pop their ever self-agrandizing ego-driven dumpster-fire of a skunkweasel program.

I have no doubt that in a year, he'll have a pretty close to world-class offense (at least in terms of effort).  It won't be too dissimilar to what Sumlin and Briles were able to do at ATM and Baylor in terms of quick turnarounds.  The real question will be whether his staff can shake off the perception of no-defense (Big12) reputation that Texas has... Need a good one to gain national attraction, and a great one to get some bowl wins.

That said, I'm excited for him... He could be the heir apparent if and when Urban retires.  I wonder if he has a clause in his contract much like Urban did about opting out for tOSU, too.  That is if he doesn't go to the pros... will be interesting to track his progress through the years. On the topic of successors to Urban, Dan Mullen comes to mind - loved his natural energy and disposition during the Film Room - you could see his excitedness for Urban's offense.  

All-in-all, I love the future that Urban has built for us and that will hopefully be maintained for the years to come afterward...

Top O' the Mornin' to all of you fine ladies and gents, and Happy MLK Day! It's a Monday but a great day to be a Buckeye!

Yes, and it should credited to Pete Carroll, who was the first to adopt it. I believe Todd referenced that Urban and the defensive staff learned it from Pete.

My pleasure and I'm seriously too lazy to change it at this juncture.  Thanks for the correction brother Hov!

Nope, it's simply depth of field - or to put it in lay terms, Cardale is standing in the back of this photo, and Kenny is likely 5-10 yds in front of him, so from the angle of the photographer, Cardale likely looked shorter than he really is.  A good analogy is that this pic is similar to when you try to take a pic of pinching the sun or moon with your fingers.

I would have loved to hear Gee call Oregon the lil' sisters of the poor... 

Comment 17 Jan 2015

Well, given that we naturally think our football team are national champions every year, I thought it was nice that they proved it on the field, so the same with Brutus.  It's nice to get recognition outside of our own fanbase - not that it matters any.  Or in short, DUH!

Really?  At a Krogers?  Good grief... I guess the WHAC did not want all the fans to swarm in.
