"Because I couldn't go for three."

-Woody Hayes (after being asked why he went for the 2 point conversion to run up the score)

Comment 21 Nov 2015

This is true. However, the coaches, whether it be Meyer, Beck, or Warriner never made the adjustments. They kept running the same plays over and over in hopes that they would yield a new result.

Zeke was given only 2 carries in the entire 2nd half and I saw them call JT up the middle so many times without giving him even the option of a draw. 

MSU destroyed them in the trenches, but the offensive play calling was so vanilla that it could've made any qualified D-Coordinator look like a genius.

You can only twist a door knob so many times before you have to understand it's locked and move on to the next door.

I've had time to vent and I think I speak very rationally when I say, Urban had the opportunity to hire Lincoln Riley out of ECU. Instead he hired Tim Beck. We all have our blunders in life, both professionally and personally. This was one of his blunders.

If you take a look at Oklahomas offense (the team that hired Lincoln Riley), I think it's evident that he should've been the guy that filled Tom Hermans shoes.

That game was called in a manner that should only be called when Joe Bauserman was QB. There was no originality, no adjustments, and we played right into Spartys hand.

Congrats to Dantonio and MSU on the victory, but this was a game that Ohio State lost. Not one that Michigan State won.

Heads up everyone and let's hope that the players can put it behind them and get focused for The Game.

Bo was a big 165 all of last year. If he stays at 174, he will dominate this year and win the national title.

Comment 05 Nov 2015

I feel unusually arrogant saying this, but I saw this coming. If he had grown up in California, Joe Burrow would've been a MUCH more coveted prospect. He has pocket presence, poise, accuracy, leadership qualities, and he is the son of OU's QB coach, giving him the opportunity to be a lifetime student of the game. His mobility isn't JT or Braxton-esque, but he is more than capable of scrambling. He is a mold of (to a lot lower level) Andrew Luck and Aaron Rodgers.

I really look forward to seeing how he progresses through the years!

#1 Pound for pound high school wrestler in the country. Probably the most dominant high school wrestler since Kyle Snyder; and like Snyder, he excels in both folkstyle and freestyle. He's a future Olympian as well as NCAA Champion.

Minnesota, Penn State, Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Nebraska are his list of schools, but many expect it to come down to Ohio State and Nebraska.

Ohio State because it's becoming the premiere college wrestling site for Olympic training and Nebraska because he has a desire to train with Jordan Burroughs (United States most accomplished active wrestler).

Comment 10 Feb 2015

I never got to see Jimmy Jackson or Michael Redd play, let alone Havlicek and Lucas. So, from my personal viewing, my lineup would be:

PG: Mike Conley Jr.

SG: Jon Diebler

SF: Evan Turner

PF: Jared Sullinger

C: Greg Oden

6th: Aaron Craft

B: Daquan Cook

B: Kosta Koufos

B: DeAngelo Russell

B: BJ Mullens

Note: From a pure talent standpoint, I'd have Russell in the starting five, but Diebler is the ideal SG from a scheme stand point.

Personally, I don't know if any "shady" activity was going on. I don't know if Meyer or Drayton knew he was leaving for Chicago 48 hours ago so I'm not going to drag their name through the mud for it.

But in my own opinion, they should give him the opportunity to retract his LOI. If he only came to Ohio State because of Stan Drayton, then I don't want him wearing the Scarlet and Gray. 

If he truly wants to be a Buckeye, he will reaffirm his commitment and go on to do what we believe he is capable of.

I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate, posting it here of all places, but it really is a coin flip between Montana and Brady. It comes down to perception more than anything. Some will say that Montana is better because he never lost a Super Bowl, others will say Brady is better because he made it to 6 and won just as many. You can't really be wrong.

I must set aside my biased opinion against that school up north and declare that, from my perspective, Tom Brady is the greatest QB in the history of the NFL. 

I do get a kick though out of how those blue people brag about Brady and use him as a selling point to QB recruits as if he were just there two years ago under the tutelage of Harbaugh.

Comment 31 Jan 2015

I agree. 

If Ed Warinner leaves because he simply wants to be a head coach and run his own program, I will understand. But if it comes down to financial issues, Ohio State better open the checkbook and ask him what his price is.
