Where can you buy official ohio state footballs without signatures? Like real gameday footballs, not cheap knockoffs with an ohio state logo. 

Comment 12 Dec 2013

I think we'll see a lot better back seven next year. 

Even assuming Shazier is gone, We're probably looking at Trey Johnson, Mike Mitchell, Curtis Grant/Josh Perry/Cam Williams linebackers.

Secondary we'll have Doran Grant and Eli Apple as cornerbacks. 

Safeties Vonn Bell Cam Burrow.

Tyvis Powell at Star. 

 

Even looking at just what is already at the roster, it looks really promising.

haha. I put "do not pick up ga tech or Virginia. period. ND and Syracuse would be palatable".

Comment 21 Nov 2012

I think we'll see ND/Syracuse.

Syracuse may be a smaller market, but regionally, they fill in a big gap, they're AAU, and their basketball program is top notch, with a lot of fans out there.

Football: the BIG will always be Ohio State, Michigan, then everyone else.

But, look at the potential basketball conference.

Ohio State, Mich St., Mich, Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Notredame - all routinely top 25 teams.

The second tier isn't half bad either - Northwestern, Illinois, Minnesota, Maryland.

And then there is the punching bags.

Nebraska, Iowa, Penn State, Rutgers.

I think you hit the problem on the head. Ohio State recruits extra players because some guys just don't pan out. We knew 2 years ago, Storm Klein & Etienne Sabino weren't going to make it. Didn't Cooper say "if a dog is going to bite, he'll bite as a pup".

We don't have that rockstar middle linebacker that drives everything. Maybe it should have been Dorian Bell, or Johnathan Newsome. But they definitely miss that guy who can make defensive adjustments on the field. 

I think the problem is not with coaching. Whithers, Fickell both have proven success. 

Perhaps the only problem I have with the coaching is why haven't they gone ahead and played freshmen? I know Perry is injured. But Crowell, Williams, Marcus, Burger? get the most promising of them in there and plan for next year.

The hardest part to stomach is the massive lost potential. Of what could have been with the BrewCrew, and TP if they had had guys like Herman and Warriner coaching them, instead of Siciliano and Bollman.

Does the 2006 Fiesta Bowl go differently with Warriner and Marotti?  

Comment 02 Oct 2012

Brewster should have been helped against Atkins. 

I really feel bad for all the O-Linemen we had that came through while Bollman was coaching.

Boo Hoo. 5 years of student loans to attend The Ohio State University will also result in you having only 500 in your checking account until you're 40. 

 

Comment 14 May 2012

Hah, I was at the party that picture was taken, and know those 3 kids well.

Comment 30 Jan 2012

You got your order wrong. Fox isn't a news source. 

NYT, BBC, Al Jazeera, and then way way down the line towards the supermarket tabloids is FOX. 

Comment 29 Dec 2011

Hey, so I can't remember the yahoo name I used to create my entry.

My team name was "Josh is gonna win" or something. Does it happen to display the username?

 

Nevermind! I remembered.  

Comment 26 Nov 2011

You guys earned that one.  Glad to see the rivalry resumed.

As far as 2011 goes, we will always have this:

Comment 08 Nov 2011

Nope, Penn State can have him.

Give me Luke Fickell, with Josh McDaniel running the offense, and LeCharles Bentley Coaching O-line. 

Comment 07 Nov 2011

Regarding Hall: Bollman not calling plays that utilize the talent he's got - I'm SHOCKED!

Comment 29 Oct 2011

leCharles Bentley has Troy Smith on his radio show right now, really bashing the administration:

Comment 17 Oct 2011

I'm OK with that. Bring him in for 2 or 3, then move him on and get another.

The QB coach for the steelers was born in youngstown. As an offensive unit they seem to be good at calling plays to their strengths, rather than just hammering the same old nail week in and week out. 

Comment 17 Oct 2011

With all this talk of coaches all over the place, nobody seems to evaluate the idea that Luke might keep his job with the ultimatum he dumps the entire offensive staff. 

Who is out there that might be interested in the OC job? Could Hazell be pulled back with the right paycheck? Any positional coaches in the NFL have ties to Ohio State? You know, find a real QB coach, make him OC, and let him hire a staff. Or an O-line coach? Or hell, let Orlando Pace do it, they say offensive linemen know the defense better than anyone else, isn't that who you want calling plays?
