Makes you wonder about the Curtis Samuel position change... No way Bri'onte Dunn is EZE's backup this season.
We can always try to beat Ohio in basketball, right? Oh wait...
Call me crazy, but I think adding Maryland would be great. I'm not a huge fan of adding Rutgers, but who could be a better add? Crab cakes and football, that's what Maryland does.
I think their program would only get better by being able to expand their footprint. We have worse bottom dwellers than either of those teams. Illinois, Purdue, Indiana, Minnesota, so what's the big deal?
Wood is a nice place. I grew up in BG. I have lots of family in Tontogany. It's a nice little town with a beautiful new school.
Love seeing Wood County represented. I was born and raised in that great county in NW Ohio.
OSU - 56
Purdue - 20
OSU 31 - Nebraska 30
OSU 55 - UAB 6
Greg Oden and 2011 Eat Too, Brutus attendee share a comical and shocking moment while getting a glimpse of Bret Bielema's Zoosk profile.
Love the Vampire Weekend reference for the links.
Last year's BYU Jimmer squad comes to mind too. I think they were a sweet 16 exit.
You might of just brought me on board with Community. I'm a huge Joel McHale fan. I love his sarcasm and watch The Soup every week but never got into Community. I just wonder why after a long hiatus, and a big fan following, they would come back on the first night (first real night) of the NCAA Tournament.
Great guest host this week. You'll have to have Sarah back again in the near future. Mark me down as the third listener for this week's dubcast.
Glad that you got to see the Stroh Center, Jeremy. I was born and raised in BG and my mother works at BGSU (I can literally have tickets any time I want them) but I haven't made it home to see a game yet.
I don't know what I would do at a BGSU basketball game with athletic players. Aside from Antonio Daniels and Keith McCloud I was used to seeing Dan Dakish bring in good ol high pick and roll players from here in the Darke/Mercer county area.
HAHA Love the part about Braxton. He seriously had to think that when they're running Dave on 3rd and 24.
LQR needs to chill. It would be nice to see him play more, but who's spot does he take to get more minutes? If there's anybody who has a gripe it's Sam Thompson a.k.a. The Human Highlight Reel who does nothing but shine every time he's on the floor.
Come on LQR, get your grades right, do the things you need to do in order to be a college basketball player and quit your bitching. The coaches didn't say "I don't know how much of this bull s*** I can take" when you couldn't get eligable in time for fall practices.
I know Urban wants that "fly off the film screen" athlete, but I think there are a few on the team. Philly Brown (who is extremely fragile, hopefully Coach Mariotti can fix this) is a very accomplished track star, Jordan Hall has some serious allusiveness, and Devin Smith and Verlon Reed are both great athletes.
Everyone is always talking about the next Percy Harvin but he is such a rare athlete it's like waiting for the next Dwayne Wade or Dwight Howard. There's only one that comes along in a few years, and hopefully you're lucky enough to get him on your team.
I've backed Delaney for quite a while. So many people were wondering why we weren't going for the 13th and 14th members of our conference. We added Nebraska, a price fish for any conference, and other conferences add the likes of Utah, Colorado, Texas A&M, and Mizzou.
Top to bottom, we are the strongest conference in football and basketball with coaches who are willing to travel all over the country to play games. I think the expansion of the SEC and PAC 12 have further diluted their already top heavy alignments. The B1G will be back on top in both sports in a very short time.
Oh yeah, and Notre Dame, enjoy playing in the Big LEast and being even more irrelevent.
Agreed. I love Luke Fickell just as much as John Gruden probably loves him. Great guy, awesome Buckeye, great for the program and great for the kids. I would love for him to be on the staff but I would also not be opposed to him leaving so we can have a clean slate.
Just trying to think of the receivers we already have... Philly, Devin Smith, Evan Spencer, Verlon Reed, Chris Fields, T.Y. "Dropsies" Williams, Plus add in Frank Epitropoulos, Roger Lewis, Mike Thomas, that makes for 9 receivers, not counting Jordan Hall who will probably be more of a slash type player next year.
You would have to think that with the limited scholarships we have left, Green-Beckham or Caleb would be much more important than Southward. You would have to think that he is being asked to explore his options since Meyer wasn't hired yet when he committed.
Love the link to Antoinne. Hide you recruits, cause they climbin in yo windows and snatchin yo people up. So run and tell that, homeboy.
Excellent write up guys. The excitement around Buckeye football is at a high that hasn't been around since the tat-5 news broke this time last year. The players can feel it, the fans can feel it, and most importantly the recruits can feel it and it's showing with the commitments we've been landing.
Keep up the awesome work. I am sure the recruits you interview love knowing that Buckeye Nation wants them and wants them to have an awesome future wherever they decide to go. In all seriousness, thank you for providing us with a place to come and celebrate all things Buckeye Sports (but mostly football of course).
I don't know about you guys and girls, but I am thoroughly enjoying every sip of the hatorade being served by the bitter fans up north. I'm really looking forward to this weekend - family Christmas where I'll get to see my brother, who is a huge scUM fan. He denied the Meyer rumors, now says the investigation isn't over and we're gonna get hit hard, I can't even imagine how pissed he is about the recruiting news. Best. Christmas. Ever.
