I will always enjoy hating the Irish go Cats! Remember fellow Buckeye fanatics, those Kentucky fans are as invested in their great basketball program as we are in our football program. I am in northern Kentucky but grew up in Northwest Ohio and those _ichigan fans are far worse than the Kentucky fans! Also we hated Urban.....until he came home and now we are truly blessed to have him. Wouldn't we feel the same if Calipari came and elevated the Basketbucks the same way Urban elevated the football team! Some will say no way as many did before Urban came, but I think we would embrace success at a high level in much the same way. Full disclosue I have an OSU grad oldest daugter and a UK grad as a youngest daughter so I find myself walking a very fine line. They both know that if push comes to shove I bleed scarlet and gray...just sayin.
Toughest team won as usual, see Izzo, Meyer, Ryan. We lack it and it and it shows! Greatness is demanded, good....not so much.
Russell is a GREAT player and he is our best option, but today he is having a William Buford vs Kentucky game. Not his fault at all, sometimes they just won't fall! No help from anyone else so we get this result. They play hard but Not nearly enough shooters to beat Arizona. Difficult team to watch but they gave what they had!
I hate that they beat us but I love their tenacity and fight! We could use some of their seemingly innate nasty they bring to the floor, but it just may be that is what we lack on this team. There is just "something" missing that holds this team back. Well, a great BIG would also help but we have been traveling that road for a while now.
One is enjoying a nice evening watching his school lose to his in-state rival (big brother) with his daughter. The other is seething at a loss to that same school and planning how to never, ever let that happen again! I am good with the difference!
KBD seems to be on the verge and then his playing time is reduced and his progrssion slows as well. So much potential and we already know the limits of the seniors. I get the loyalty to the older guys but it's past time for them to produce consistently. They don't do that and that's on them. Next man up should get his chance.
Joel Halle will be that 5th year senior, run stuffer, blocker eating d tackle that gets little recognition but contributes greatly to that unit. Coach Johnson will get Shutt and Holmes and and the other young guns ready to roll. Don't mess with a cohesive, highly functiong unit if you really don't need to.
Good game, 8 minutes w/o scoring ultimately did them in. Fun game to watch, about what we expected. After the gimme part of the season is over they are a little bit above average.
He said he was hurt and he wasn't gonna lie about it. Yep, made sense to me and then ........that ensued. Good luck Mike, you deserve it! Yep and that is exactly what I mean.
Who has it better than THE BUCKEYES........NOOOOOOOOBODY! Nuff said!
Well, little Jimmy Harbaugh, what do you say about Michigan academics now to your recruits? Or are you still steering them to general studies to get them in? Probably you didn't deceive, then you were merely mis-quoted.
Great job by these guys! Really fun to see the effort on the glass on both ends. I think Tate's unfailing effort on both ends of the floor may be the spark that ignites this team. Amir even had some moments and maybe that is the best we can expect from him.....so be it. Rotate the big boys to give some different looks and back to the guys who are working hard and getting better!
Stunned, completely shocked, right out of the blu, had no idea, flabbergasted, Auburn, bagmen.....well I'll be damned, never woulda thunk it, shocked.......really?
These kids are gathering more and more info every time they talk to these coaches. There are highs and lows, just like in every walk of life. Some get pumped up and commit and then doubt creeps in. It is a huge decision in their young lives with extremely large consequences. Wouldn't we all have doubts and second thoughts? Isn't the best time to look for a job is when you already have one? Coaches know a "commitment" is we're in their top 3 and plenty of work left till signing day. The plan works, the Buckeyes are Undisputed Champs. Enjoy the journey and let the kids do the same, after all it is theirs to take.
Well Damn, I believe this dog will be doing a little Duck huntin! Can't wait to show the "experts" just ONE MORE TIME! O H I O.......
X 2 parents or guardians =1.5 million I believe, still easily doable and better yet the right thing to do! Lead the right way and common sense will usually follow! Way to go Coach and Gene.....nicely done!
Co-ordinator #1 Be Agile

That ought cost em about $3,000,000 right there. Especially being Michigan Men!
I really need one of those give-a-fuck-ometers! Now that's funny!
Braxton Miller deserves our faith, he has at least earned that much from Buckeye Nation. Great person, player and representative of The Ohio State University.......he has been and always will be a Great Buckeye! As they say " come on man".
I would take 22 like him, any time, any day, any where and take my chances!
That parochial pipeline to Notre Dame is very hard for kids to resist. Despite their issues with player assaults, cheating, imaginary girl friends and poor coachin decisions with tragic results.....hopefully for him it is the best decision. Brian Kelly..... is a whole different discussion now isn't he.......
Nicely done.....a step forward, watch the film, fix some things......not where they want to be but a young team on the rise. Fun times ahead! GO BUCKS
