Is this where I say "go somewhere else and get beat by OSU"?   Sorry just had to.

Remember it's still early and we have the closer.

Seems to me the ones that get that comment the most are the top OHIO talent that choose not to "stay home".  Ronbizi your point is well made.  Wish them well and next man up.  After all it's worked pretty well so far.

I wanted to vote yes but until I see proof, well...  Love Thomas' game, have tons of hope for Corey Smith, and we know Marshall has all the talent to be great inside.  But replacing Smith and Spencer will be difficult for young players.

I guess I'll take a shot at answering your question.  ESPN loves the hairballs, both of them, and wanted the perspective of a former head coach who has been through the interview process, especially with prospects who may have had issues, and boy has this one has issues.  It actually turned out to be either comical or terribly sad depending on your perspective, informative it was not.  The sad part to me is that Bryce Petty was there but got lost in the calamity of how to lie without looking like it.  He's the sleeper QB in this draft.

Those comments tell me you'll go far as a robber baron / slum lord but you will not win any points in the hearts and minds of Buckeye FANS.

What I read is that most of these folks were hoping to get a nice piece of  momorabilia for their man cave / family room etc.,  maybe a jearsey they could wear around with pride in their University and team.   The complaints were the same ones we see yearly about black friday sales.  A few selfish profiteers ruin what could've been a great experience for thousands,

Exactly right.  The comments above about Fickell and Withers are probably spot on (not privy to the inside stuff) and as much as I admire Vrable coach Johnson was the glue, the oracle, the reason that team got those rings.  Not taking anything away from any other coach it's just that Mr. johnson turned a bunch of good guys and some under achievers into NFL caliber men.  IMHO the single best hire coach Meyer made.  That speach about Micheal Bennett said it all.  

Man am I looking forward to todays game.

Ohio State holds the record for spring game attendance (95,722 in 2009).

So what's the turnout going to be this year?  I know of seven to ten that will be there including me.

Checked the ticket site and there's still $5.00 tix available and now some resale's are showing up too.

Why wouldn't you stay and be treated by the medical staff at the premier medical facility (university or otherwise) in the country?  Along with Mick the sports med folks could turn this kid into a beast by the next season.

UV for sharing.  The line "Fields had another great day of football." gives hope he'll catch on somewhere.  He deserves the opportunity.

Comment 04 Apr 2015

Michael Thomas: 62 receptions, 1152 yards, 12 touchdowns, one in every regular season game. 

Jalin may end up with more catches than Corey but that's only because he gets credit for a catch on those jet sweeps.  Corey will be second in the unit in terms of yards, something in the upper 600 range. 

Yea all you opponents WE BE GOIN' DEEP on your a$$.  Deal with it.

Why not support (vote for) the B1G schools, all we heard all season was how the B1G was down this year, but now it's the only conference with two teams.  Kind of redeeming.

Comment 31 Mar 2015

Dude you're bringing me down.  Sorry for the tardiness, just got back.  Did not realize their (Oregon) track team was so good or that the outdoor championship was at their place.  Talk about home track advantage.  So I guess commanding is only temporary. 

Thanks for the update.  Was kid of looking forward to that all-round championship.

How many bag men does that box feed?

Comment 24 Mar 2015

My wife recently brought home a copy of Buckeye Rebirth written by BIll Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch.  It tells the story of how coach Meyer came to be the head coach here and how he reshaped the program.  There's a section that is a boigraphy on his early life and what shaped him to be the driven person we've come to know.  It then recaps the games of the 2012 unbeaten season.  There are insights into building a coaching staff, recruiting and changing a culture that had to change if the program was to get back to the top of the college football world - which we know they did.

The book may be old news to some but if you haven't read it and are a die hard Buckeye it is well worth the time.  So that's my two cents.
