This coming from a player whose high school teammate is a QB commit for OSU.
His girlfriend plays or played soccer at Ohio State.
I agree but I had to be a homer there since he helped OSU win a title.
In reality I'd have to go with these guys in any order:
Jim Tressel, Nick Saban, Bo, Pete Carroll, Lou Holtz because all have either won national championships, Super Bowl titles and/or are in the College football hall of fame.
Thought about him also.
When you really sit back and think about it there have been some great coaches go through the Horseshoe as assistants. Look at the national championships won and in carroll's case both National titles and Super Bowl championship.
Refuse to put Ron Zook on the list as he was a failure as a head coach but wonderful recruiter.
I thought about Coker then forgot him on the list. Bill Mallory was an assistant also who had some success as head coach at Indiana.
Add Pete Carroll onto that list of very accomplished former assistant coaches. Dom Capers was a former assistant also.
I think I heard Steve Harvey in an interview say he is a huge Buckeye fan and that his daughter attends Ohio State or has a degree from The Ohio State University
Stupid people do stupid things. The Internet forums like 11W, twitter, and others can be a wonderful thing but also can let the crazies out. People will type out things that they would never say to people in person. It happens in high schools, colleges, and the pros. I refuse to even knowledge social media during OSU games this year so I can think before I speak. I get upset at individual players but I'm a coach and teacher and am smart enough not to call them out. Turnovers by a number of players are a problem, penalties are a problem being committed by multiple players, and play calling has not been what an untrained eye like myself and others have thought it would be like. Buckeye Nation, the world is not ending we are undefeated. Go Bucks!!!
Lol, almost made me spit out my drink on that one.
I've been trying to believe in my head that they are saving Zeke's body for games where he is needed. This is a tough game and bodies get banged up and it's good to take it easy on him until need be.
Which Ryan brother coached at OSU as a grad assistant under Cooper? I know one of them did but can't remember which one.
I agree, the older I get the more I hate seeing these types of things for any kid. Obviously I can't stand that school up there and really can't stand that team and coaching staff but I want to see kids get a degree. Hopefully this will still happen. Good luck to him getting this straightened out and as always Go Bucks.
I like this. Good for them. At least they will look good while getting drilled.
Loved it, made me want to jump on 11W and comment during the game but I was able to hold off. Trying something new this season where I stay off social media during games until they finish.
He looks like a stud out there. What number is Gerald?
Did he handle his departure well from OSU? No. Is he an adult? Yes but only probably 19-20 years old. We all do,and say things in the heat of the moment that we'd probably like to take back if we could. Hopefully he gets it figured out and straightens things out. Not sure if football is in his future, probably 1AA if it is. I'm not one to say once a Buckeye always a Buckeye when they choose to leave but I do wish him well.
Keith Byars is the man!!!
As a high school coach I hate this new trend of kids transferring to academy's for sports reasons. I know it probably helps most kids but it takes away from their high school teams that they have grown up playing with. Call me "old school."
I have always enjoyed watching CFL games. I remember watching warren Moon play for The Eskimos. Didn't realize Ottawa lost the Roughriders. What happened to them and what is a Red Black?
