Excellent article....I am looking forward to more of these in the future. This type of insight is the stuff only a former player can give,
Tate Forcier should have warned Carson Palmer about Coleman's INT ability. #2009
The only things Pitt can offer over TOSU is immediate playing time and proximity to family for those who are from Pa.
If Samuel played for Indiana Jordan Howard would have been on the bench.
If Samuel was the OSU feature back he would have numbers right there with Howard and close to Zeke. Too bad for Samuel he was behind the best RB in college football and one of the best RB's in OSU history.
It isn't a Heisman House commercial because neither Montana nor Rice ever won a Heisman Trophy.
Curtis Samuel was probably the 2nd best RB in the B1G this season behind Zeke. Stinks for him he had to play behind the best RB in the country.
So, Harper would be a LB? Safety? TE? The guy is a great athlete and baseball player.
Bosa's hit that knocked Rudock out of the game.
As long as JT is the QB, we'll be fine. That said I hope we see a mass exit to the NFL. I want to see fresh, young blood next year. These guys, Bell, Lee, Tyvus, Bosa, Braxton, Thomas, Cardale, etc. they all have served their school well. Thanks for a great 4 year ride.
even if he never takes a meaningful snap for TOSU, Stephen Collier is one of my favorite players.
look at my username, much admiration for X-Brax. Just a great player and person......hope everything works out for him at the next level.
Palmer, both QB's have a chance to go off and Cousins has been hot lately, but Carson Palmer has less margin for error. Cousins on the road has a chance to put up a stinker. Avoid the noid.
Students, yes, but a lot of the athletes with stars next to their name haven't been attending Catholic schools since kindergarten, though
"Faith Based" high schools in Ohio is just code for schools without district lines who are allowed to recruit. the standout players on many of these teams have no interest in religion. Notre Dame is just a larger version of this. ND is a very good school...but to say you want to send your 4-5 star athlete son there to get a religious education, c'mon, man!
2006 was maybe the best game ever in my lifetime between the 2 teams just because the stakes were so high.....but my all time favorite may have been 2004. OSU entered as an underdog and on a losing streak. The series under Tressel was in our favor, 2-1, but I believe that was the coming out party for the aforementioned class of 2006. Just a breakout game full of big plays for Ohio St.
2005 may have been the most exciting game between the 2 rivals in that span, though.
24 hrs is up, I am done moping around and it is Mich. week. Time to get back to work. I am glad to see our leaders, JT and Cardale, have (at least publicly) shaken off the loss to Sparty. Just have to look forward now.
sorry Ramzy, these guys announcing they are going pro have a foot out the door. the buckeyes will not play hard next week, or the week after for fear of getting hurt. A lot of John Cooper teams did the same thing, but were not as vocal about it, nor did they have the numerous media and social outlets to let it be known. I thought this team had character, but they proved today that they don't, and they don't know how to handle losing. don't softball this one.
Size, Speed, hands, good route runner= One heck of an NFL prospect. Would look good in Orange & Brown next year.
I am a graduate of (and currently follow) a high school in the same conference as Kenton. Kenton, led by Mauk's father who was Head football coach and AD, is a dump hole. I watched Ben and Maty Mauk play basketball and they were dirty players and sore losers, which was too bad because they were both pretty god at hoops.
In football, Kenton has routinely led the WBL in unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for the past 20+ years, when Mike Mauk was HC. feel bad that he has cancer, but Kenton as a whole has had instance after instance of juvenile...bordering on criminal behavior.
Sarkisian played QB at BYU, right? A well known dry campus........maybe he is just making up for lost time.
I don't miss his 28% field goal percentage on any shot but a dunk.
