Never give up.
Major props to Eric for linking to that play against Oregon. Lee had a similar play against Alabama, blowing up a screen by owning his blocker and tackling the ball carrier.
Those two plays in the playoffs are what I'll remember Darron Lee for.
Blackledge and Nessler are the best duo in the business, in my opinion.
Hard to argue with his success but Dabo oozes country dumb.
Oklahoma has a tough OOC schedule. Opens with Houston, and then Ohio State two weeks later.
I bet Meyer will have some conversations with Herman between weeks 1 & 3.
Spencer threw a beautiful pass there.
PSA - stay away from Taylor Lewan.
That is pretty crazy. I think the reason people forget how good Hyde was is he didn't have the marquee 60-70 yard TD runs that EzE is having now, but if you think about it, that makes Hyde's 7+ yards per carry that much more impressive. Dude was a monster for us.
Remember when "Urban can't produce a 1000 yard rusher" was a thing that other fanbases believed in?
Yeah, that was pretty much destroyed.
I'm not saying I agree or disagree - both are great backs and it is difficult to pick one over the other in a definitive fashion.
But for the people on here who are swayed a bit by the recency effect:
Hyde averaged 7.3 yards per carry, 1521 yards total.
EzE averaged 6.9 yards per carry, 1871 yards total (however, Eze played in more games)
EzE averaged 6.8 yards per carry, 1130 yards so far.
Hyde was a BEAST. Not just at short yardage but in gashing secondaries.
Also, if I remember correctly he wasn't tackled for a loss until the Clemson game. Which is insane.
Me too. Guy just has a knack for making plays, and one of the best run support corners we've had since Antoine Winfield.
Lol u serious
I predict a very workman-like, efficient effort:
21/29, 265 Yards
3 TD's/0 INT
12 Attempts, 89 Yards Rushing
^ A thousand times this. Fickell is an old-school, salt-of-the-earth guy. In his brief talk at the championship ceremony on Saturday, it was all about the seniors. Glad he is on our side.
I would like to see DJ cover the following topics in his next Skull Session:
- Baby seal clubbing
- The Holocaust
.....sprinkled liberally with Warren Harding, our Lord and Savior. Get the pitchforks out everybody! Mob justice will be served!!!!
RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!!!!!

"Sports journalism should be about the subject matter, not the author."
Welcome to The Internet, circa 2013. If you want to turn back the clock to old school sports journalism:
- Go pick up a hard copy of The Sporting News at your local Waldenbooks bookstore
- On your way home, stop at the local five and dime for a bag of Werther's Originals
- Sit in your leather reading chair
This is what ruins the internet, and this is why we can't have good things: the level of fake outrage, and the pack mentality that follows.
Most of the haters aren't really offended, they just want to be.
DJ, keep doing what you're doing.
DJ posts interesting content, and has an original voice. Which is hard to find in the sea of mediocre world of college football journalism.
The people on here who get offended by his posts need to step away from the keyboard and go outside for a bit, lest they fall into that rabbit hole of internet rage.
+1. Calm down people.
First, thank you for your service. I mean this in no disrespectful way, but don't be like Walter Sobchak from the Big Lebowski. DJ's joke was not "on" American servicemen. The joke was "on" people who get too easily offended by what he writes.
It also blows my mind that our offensive coaching staff thought it was better to start Joe Bauserman over Braxton Miller.
Even though Miller was just a freshman, it was clear early on that Bauserman had no ceiling whatsoever.
Here are a couple of JB's lines from that season:
OSU at. Miami
-13 passing yards total
-QB Rating 22.1
OSU at Nebraska
-13 passing yards total
-QB Rating 0.90 (yes, you read that correctly....the rating is less than 1.00)
My thoughts exactly.
Moderators, I like free speech and all, but please feel free to moderate.
There are some comments coming from the mouth-breathing section of OSU fandom that essentially proclaim "she was asking for it."
BCast on OZone said one of the three was a potential recruit that didn't sign with the Buckeyes.
3. Unknown recruit that visited that weekend, but didn't sign with OSU (I bet a Google search could narrow this list down)
I am ashamed of some of these comments. This board is veering a little to the side of "she was asking for it."
Take of your scarlet glasses, folks.
