Wise words.  

I think all rumors and reports on Braxton need to be taken with a grain of salt until the fall.  It is fine to speculate and offer opinions but all of this needs to be considered in light of TONS of moving parts and uncertainties over the next 6 months.

All this, plus history.  I have circled this day since Hairball was hired.  I can so totally see him stumbling through the season to a 7-4 record and us sauntering up there 11-0 and ranked #1 and losing, much like that cursed day in 1969 when Bo triumphed and started the "10 year war".

It seems as if he is saying the opposite.  Other schools are saying the depth chart is impenetrable up here because we have all this YOUNG talent ahead of incoming recruits.  Jeremy appears to be saying, that in opposition to this negative recruiting tactic, that OSU could be ("should" be) without all three players after NEXT year. 

I disagree with this, I think that two (one for sure) will be gone, but not all three.

Harbaugh will make -ichigan better.  He is the real deal.  Will it be fully realized in 1-2 years, unlikely, but TTUN is not devoid of talent and they will be a challenge next year (weren't they the past 3???).  QB will certainly be the biggest question mark, but I see that game up there at the end of the year as our biggest land mine for an unbeaten season, by far.

Cardale Jones and JT Barrett could all conceivably leave for the NFL after next season, as they should do.

I would take just a little issue with this.  IF JT or Cardale drop the the 3rd string, then I don't see that individual leaving.  If it is Braxton followed by either JT or Cardale, then I see the back up still getting plenty of work and maybe having enough film to go pro.  If Braxton can't be a QB due to the shoulder, then it would really depend on the situation.  If JT has to take more time to recover and ends up being the back up to Cardale, I sure would expect him to come back and start in 2016.  So, I short, I don't think it is a given that they SHOULD leave after next year.

They don't have to live in their shadow, not fully. If Oden/Conley/etc and/or Sullinger/Diebler/etc had been able to finish the job, we'd have two NCs in basketball in the last 7 yrs.

We may get in, but it is going to be a quick exit unless something changes quickly with this teams toughness.  They have a LONG way to go and at this rate probably don't deserve to be in the tournament.  Matta has a way of bringing these teams together by March though, so I wouldn't bet against them.

Comment 17 Jan 2015

Yep, it really was amazing how much we physically dominated.  The score never should have been even that close.  Now, that said, had they not dropped two easy 3rd down conversions in the 1st quarter then perhaps it would have been a dog fight to the end. 

And I agree with above, Alabama was definitely the tougher out.

Apparently, I don't know how to copy an image in here on my phone, but this seems to be a perfect place for a pic of "Bane Cat"

There has been lots of talk (justifiably so) about our youth and returning talent, but make no mistake, these seniors stepped up BIG time in the last month or so and have some pretty big shoes to be filled.
Comment 15 Jan 2015

Amen to this.  This tweet needs to be left to die.  And, as it was also said above, his original tweet was taken out of context when he was disappointed about a grade on test.

I was thinking he reminds me a lot of Zeke.  Very elusive runner, with excellent peripheral vision and amazing speed out of his cuts.  Doesn't seem as much of a bruiser as Lynch.  Very bright future.
