Braxton has represented the Buckeyes very well these past four years and it is right that he be invited to the Espys. I think the whole team should go, personally, but considering budget constraints that is not possible. Braxton is a senior who has always handled his business well, and he is still one of the bright stars in college football. It just happens that the Buckeyes are blessed with two other, incredible QBs. That should not reflect poorly on Braxton.

I regret having my dog put to sleep when I did. He was 11 years old and his quality of life was on the decline for sure, but he was not that bad off. He was incontinent and my wife and I had a big fight about his piddling in the house. I reacted by taking him to the vet the next day to have him put to sleep. I hated myself for that for a long time. I had him since he was seven weeks old and he was my first baby. Even though he was very arthritic and had only a fraction of energy that he once did, I should have done more to care for him in those last couple of years he would have lived. That taught me a huge lesson on making important decisions while you are angry or emotional.

I really like all three of these guys, though I would be proud of almost anybody from the Buckeyes roster. Just think of the four years Washington has had - playing with John Simon, Michael Bennett, Jonathan Hankins, Joey Bosa, and many others... I love Joshua Perry - he is a true professional. Reminds me a lot of Malcolm Jenkins and Marcus Freeman in the way he handles his business. And Taylor Decker is a warrior. We are blessed to have these three guys represent the Buckeyes in Chicago.

Comparing the Buckeyes offense of the 90s to 2015 is completely pointless. This offense has so much variety built in that you can use different QB with specific play sets and it won't disrupt the entire flow of the offense. The Cooper offense of the 90s was dependent on rhythm created from the QB and the rest of the offense. This offense is designed to constantly change its rhythm. I think Meyer can make it work, but if you want to fret over it, have at it.

JT and Cardale were not in Braxton's class in August 2014, but that was a LONG time ago. Both JT and Cardale have vastly improved in the mental/confidence part of the QB position. If success at QB was all about athleticism, Tom Brady would not be able to sniff Jake Locker or Vince Young's jock. This competition is even right now. All three bring different strengths, and I think this QB battle might be one of the more intriguing sports stories in many years.

Lorain is my hometown and definitely needs good news. It has so much potential. I am happy for Rashod and the Titans. It seems like they have good coaches, and this story should inspire some of the other very good athletes that live there.

I hope Rashod can make that big transition from high school student/athlete to D1 student/athlete. He is an unbelievable athlete. I think Cardale could be a great mentor for him.

I just celebrated 6 months. It is worth the effort. Get a sponsor and get to work. That is why it finally has worked for me. God bless you!

Great movie (Rounders)... "I vill splash da deck if I vant to splash da deck." Malcovich the Russian gangster. 

Comment 19 Jun 2015

Dontre is a junior and I hope the coaches let him be who he is. I don't think he will ever block as well as Evan Spencer, but he can open the field as good or better than anybody on this roster. He can affect a game like De'Anthony Thomas did for Oregon. I know Coach Meyer has admired the Oregon offense - they never tried to make Thomas a great blocker. 

Of course Wilson needs to make plays early. That is how he will get the time on the field down the stretch. He tells people to keep sleeping on him, but the guys he needs to impress are those gents with the whistles around their necks in July and August. Best wishes to him.

Thanks for the Theological lesson. My comment to anybody who is calling Noah Spence a loser based on this incident and his problems with drugs is that he is a human who makes mistakes, just like you. If you have problems with scripture, this probably is not the right site for you, but there are other sites where you can spew your hatred against religion, etc...

Braxton, when healthy, is the most dynamic player in CFB. But JT is more consistent and Cardale is the 12 guage. I only hope they are all healthy and stay positive... the competition will take care of itself. I really don't think there is a wrong choice here, and it won't matter because if the Buckeyes lose a game, a bunch of yahoos will get on here to post how they knew better than the coaches. That is the nature of sports fans. I am just so damn excited to watch some football in about 3.5 months!!!

I like the Screaming Trees, but Cobain's creativity was off the charts. It took me a while to really notice it.

Comment 05 May 2015

I was living near Seattle at that time and was in my mid 20s, so I was pretty connected with that scene. I honestly was not a huge Nirvana fan; I preferred Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and the Melvins over Nirvana and Pearl Jam. But Nirvana's last couple of albums showed some amazing growth in their music, and Kurt Cobain in particular was really becoming a more free artist. I think what was lost was some incredible music Nirvana and Cobain would have made had he not succumbed to his demons. 

I am a huge Tool fan and think their growth is very similar to what we would have seen with Nirvana had Kurt not killed himself. Too bad we'll never know. RIP to a talented guy and a fragile genius.

I see Smith being a big impact player this year, both in the nickel and spelling Bell and Powell when they are nursing injuries, which are likely to happen as physical as those two play. I think Smith will open some eyes this year.

Comment 27 Apr 2015

All three of these guys (Conley, Webb, and Lattimore) are studs. I think this level of competition is really going to push all of them to be better, and the Buckeyes will need all of them before the season is over. The one thing that has me cringing is the thought that if any of these guys has a couple of bad series, the clamoring for the other guys will be swift and loud. We fans do not need to tear down our young, talented corners. They will have the support from teammates and coaches, but I hope our fans also rally around a trio of teenagers who are starting their first few games on this level.
