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.

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.

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.

This is what elite recruits do, I hope our recruits/players/coaches are maintaining a good relationship with Walker. But for all the trashing on UT, I think the Vols are poised to make a jump in the SEC East. They were so close in games the last couple of years, and just did not have a competent QB. JG and a couple of their other guys might be enough to get them over that hump. I think Mizzou and SC are going to slide down; Florida, Tenn, and Georgia are going to be driving this division. I hope they start competing better with the West... 

Besides all I wrote above, screw the SEC. Go Bucks.

Comment 27 Apr 2015

I don't think the Buckeyes should feel cocky going into this game. There are a lot of advantages over last year for the Buckeyes, but the Hokies are one of those teams with enough athletes that if they have chips on their shoulders, they tend to be very dangerous. At home, night crowd, opening game... this is a quality opponent. I hope Meyer seeks to unleash hell on them.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

Assuming he stays, at some point in this season, I think Braxton will be behind center and leading this team. No offense to Cardale or JT, but Braxton is really going to work hard to get on the field, and when he does, it is going to be hard to take him out. 

Comment 22 Apr 2015

I agree, Jeremy. I think that downvotes should be given only to obvious trolls or truly crass comments. I have given out 6 DVs in 4 years, and I think a couple of those were accidents before you could undo a downvote. I am glad we can see peoples' voting records - it really helps put their comments into perspective.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

Raekwon's biggest contribution might be how he pushed Curtis Grant to really make a big leap by the end of last year. I loved how their relationship developed into a true brotherhood. It reminds me of how David Robinson embraced Tim Duncan when he was drafted by the Spurs, and that relationship led them to a championship as well.

McMillan has a very good chance to be on the Buckeye LB Mt. Rushmore by the end of his career, which is an amazing feat given the great LBs that have donned the S&G.

Maybe her wakeup call was the discovery of taxis...

Comment 16 Apr 2015

Kelly has turned out to be a train wreck. I am pleasantly shocked, I had thought he was going to be very successful at ND. He still made it to a title game, so I am not labeling him as a bust. But his actions and attitudes have to be disappointing to Irish faithful. 

Comment 10 Apr 2015

I don't hate him but I don't want him to win another major. I think the pomp of him catching Jack would be overwhelming, and I would rather somebody who is a little more humble and gracious achieve that level of greatness. If you compare Tiger to Roger Federer, they are personally miles apart even though they are friends. Roger seems so humble and gracious, opposite of Tiger.

So sorry for your loss. That was a beautiful tribute. My prayers and best wishes I offer to you and your family.

Warinner was hired around the time I moved to Kansas, and those last couple of years under Mangino were pretty fun for the Jayhawks. Reesing was tough and cool customer, not even in the same universe athletically as the Buckeye Trio, but Warinner and Beck got the most out of him. 

I honestly don't think there is any comparison that is useful between the two situations, but I think it really shows how lucky we are to have Coach Warinner.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

I apologize if this was mentioned, but the way Advocare is marketed is not just encouraging people to make money. It is promoting healthy weight loss and lifestyle changes. I don't want to be polyanna here, but Braxton probably is considering the greater good as much as reaching some sales figure where he might earn money from this. I sure hope this isn't a big deal... he did the right thing as soon as he realized the possible violation.
