Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

no one should dump on anyone else for not liking the jerseys, but i think what a lot of people find silly is the outrage over changing a uniform (for one game) that has changed over and over already. if you don't like it, that's completely valid, but just relax! the regular ones will be back the next week and you can go back to enjoying ohio state football.

the outrage over this, this first time ohio state has ever worn a different uniform, is understandable. remember when woody hayes had the insane idea of adding some goofy STICKERS to a helmet (what is this, 4th grade)? i for one am very happy that ohio state respects HONOR and TRADITION and continues to use the time tested and true leather helmets, brown and red striped sweaters, and brown pants that have defined ohio state football for nigh on 100 years now.

as a true fan, this has sent me into a such a rage that three of my arteries exploded simultaneously which lead to a massive stroke and i am now typing this with the assistance of a helper monkey ive named wes fesler

EDIT: forgot sarcasm font. also while i understand not liking the uniforms in general, being actually mad about them is very, very weird to me.

I probably should've elaborated a little more on what i meant.

truthfully, i don't think that dontre is a good football player in the sense that he'd be consistent and can make an impact in this offense, and that his potential is a lot of smoke generated by some decent-ish performances against really bad defenses. when hes played teams with a pulse on defense so far in his career, he's been average at best.

in the final five games of 2013, for example, he had a grand total of 4 catches, 8 carries, and 89 yards of offense. 58 of which came against indiana. cool. in the last five games of 2014 that he played before he was injured, he had 10 catches, 9 carries, and 162 yards of total offense (for an average of about 32 yards per game) and accumulated the bulk of that against illinois, rutgers, and maryland.

now let's compare him to jalin marshall. in jalin's last five games of 2014, he had 19 catches, 7 carries, 273 yards of offense, and did it against some of the absolute toughest defenses in the country. maybe i'm being too harsh on dontre by saying he's a middling player, but i know who i'd start if given the option between the two, and it isn't close. dontre is incredibly athletic, playing football is more than about crazy speed. youve got to run routes, block (especially in this offense), be able to deal with press coverage, etc. im just not sure that dontre excels at any of those things.
