To be fair, Derrick Henry had the better overall season. Part of that was the struggles of the Buckeyes' offense as a whole last year. Henry had over 2,000 yards and averaged about 200 yards a game, if I am remembering that correctly. He deserved to win it IMO.
I think the Buckeyes should be ranked #2 this week. I have a feeling that the CFP Committee may try to keep them lower to provide an out for conference champions to jump them. I think we will see how they view the Buckeyes prospects of not winning the B10 this week by whether or not the Buckeyes are ranked #2. On the positive side, if both the Buckeyes and PSU win out and PSU loses to Wisky in the B10 Championship, and Oklahoma wins the B12, then the Buckeyes would have wins over two power 5 conference champions (both on the road). None of this matters if the Buckeyes lose, though. Beat MSU and UM first, and worry about everything else later.
PSU lost 49-10 to UM.
Michigan State has the potential to upset PSU. The Buckeyes just need some help.
I'm not superstitious, except when it comes to Buckeye football.
I was cautiously optimistic yesterday that the Buckeyes would put up some points against Nebraska. I didn't see 62-3, but I suspected a better performance. I hope this will serve as a springboard for the last few games of the season.
Oklahoma has no defense. Indiana played better. Oklahoma was not a great win (good, but not great). The Wolverines only beat Wisconsin by one score, but they looked much more dominant. They outgained Wisconsin by about 200 yards, and they could have easily won by 2-3 scored if not for stupid mistakes. So, I guess I am basing my opinion on common opponents: the Wolverines have looked more dominant in beating the two of the same opponents. I understand Wisconsin had 2 weeks to prepare for the Buckeyes and it was in Madison, so that may explain some of the differences.
I know this is blasphemy, but I don't think the Buckeyes are the second best team right now. After watching how much the team struggled in the passing game for the second straight week and the defense struggled with fundamentals, I would have to rate scUM higher. Their defense has been dominant, and their offense is beginning to look competent. I think the Buckeyes still have better athletes and higher potential, but the Wolverines have been playing better football. There's still time to clean up some things, and the team may have grown a bit during the second half in Madison. I hope the Buckeyes begin the same level of improvement after this game that they experienced after PSU in 2014.
I've lived in San Diego since 2002. I love it here. It's even cooler now that Joey Bosa will be here. I'm really glad the Chargers didn't leave town now.
Although we did have Ted Ginn and Santonio Holmes on the same team, along with Anthony Gonzalez. I believe Brian Robisky and Brian Hartline were freshmen that year as well, but that could be wrong. That was an impressive group of receivers.
The safety was overturned after review. I believe the booth ruled it was a fumble and recovery by the lineman instead of a forward pass.
I was in banking for 6 1/2 years, and worked as an intern in the corporate legal department of a large debt purchaser/collector during law school. I've seen the other side of it. Usually, the numerous calls will stop if you just answer the phone and have a conversation with them about your willingness and ability to pay. In fact, under the FDCPA, if you answer the phone and tell them to stop calling and that you can't/won't pay, they have to stop calling (other than for certain notification purposes).
Regarding Sallie Mae, I think they provide a much needed service. I couldn't have gone to law school if not for Sallie Mae loans. The real problem is not the lenders who step in to fill the gap, but the extreme cost of a college education that necessitates student loans. But I do not want to engage a political debate on that front.
In all fairness to Hoke, he was a good recruiter. He was just a bad coach.
I'm sure he would at least get an interview with Vandeley Industries.
It's hard to believe you were downvoted for this. Saying Northern Illinois might be better than Indiana, Maryland, and Rutgers isn't that big of a stretch considering the Huskies have won several MAC championships over the past few years and played in a BCS game a couple of seasons ago.
Why use symbols instead of letters for the word "ball"? It's not a profane word.
I'm conflicted as a Browns fan. On the one hand, I hate the Steelers. On the other hand, they now have several Buckeyes on their roster that I want to see do well.
Everyone says this. I watched the video about what goes into hotdogs. It's a bit gross to watch, but I never have problems eating them. I think once you've killed, skinned, and cleaned your own food, not too much seems that disgusting anymore.
Now, that's not completely accurate. They have an Iowa transfer to hold down the QB spot. And they also brought in a 3 star RB who they were much more excited about than Weber, so it's OK he signed with tOSU. You've got to keep up.
I love both the Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. I haven't read much else from her other than a couple of essays. But those two books alone are full of great quotes.
I wish I knew how to make a gif. This is good, but I like Roark from The Fountainhead. A guy trying to sabotage Roark asks, "What do you think of me now?" Roark's reply: "I don't think of you at all."
EDIT: I had some of the words wrong, but the basic idea is the same.
It's nice to see a national recruit from Mansfield. I went to Mansfield Senior instead of Madison, but still nice to see. I still have family in Mansfield. It's not the best place to be right now. Good luck to that young man.
This is a simple issue for me. It comes down to whether tOSU deceived Weber (by knowingly withholding pertinent info). If so, you rectify it by offering an unconditional release from his LOI. It's not only fair to Weber, it will help with potential negative recruiting later. If tOSU didn't deceive him, you clear the air and put an end to the speculation.
So true. I live in San Diego about a 10-15 minute drive away from the San Diego zoo. My wife, my four year old daughter, and I have year-round passes. It's only about $120 for all three of us, and we go frequently. My daughter loves it, and we don't have to stay the entire day because we can go whenever we want. It's one of my favorite things to do with the family when we have time.
