A little dated due to it being a chrome helmet and 'only' 7 buckeyes helmet stickers on the back neck, but I love wearing this shirt.

Yes, if he said that, it was a lie.  It has been documented that he was looking to move for 3 years prior to relocating to Tenn.

And I believe his narrative was that it was 5-10% of 'relentless fans' that forced him to move.

I don't care why he moved.  But he certainly has some thin skin as he actively engaged the fanbase back then and didn't like the results.

If a starter were to go down, Webb would fill their place, and Marcus Lattimore would move into the nickel spot.

Marcus Lattimore has enrolled?  If he has recovered from his injury, this backfield will be sick!

I thought Tracy Sprinkle was doing some good things in the middle too?  Surprised to not see his name in the 3-deep.

I had the same memories of Abe, but thanks to Jim Tressel and now Urban, those memories have faded.

Comment 21 Aug 2015

MoC does...they didn't exactly get along in high school.

When did the 'rivals era' start...the list is missing both MoC and Mike D"Andrea, who was the number 2 LB when recruited?

While it was true during the time you speak of, the rule recently changed and walk-ons are now included with scholarship athletes, and universities are allowed to supply unlimited meals to them.

I agree.

Due to the depth on this team, another extremely intriguing selection would be Chris Gamble, the jack of all trades.

Comment 20 Aug 2015

Heck, I would say that Doss and his counterpart from the 2002 title game, Sean Taylor, definitely need consideration for this list.

Thank god Doug Flutie wasn't put on this list.

Ron Dayne is an interesting omission as well.

Comment 20 Aug 2015

Don't forget Jim Brown pushed it past the point of no return.  When he gets involved, things tend to get toxic real quick.

Comment 19 Aug 2015

I agree.  Not that we need further evidence, but I don't think this got as much attention as it should have (read the comments to see how Zeke visited a pair of twins with cerebral palsy on his spring break - mom sent him down):

If only that was true.  Playing bench players but still trying to win is one thing, having them only bunt and coaching to lose is another.  I am just glad that justice was ultimately served.

Comment 18 Aug 2015

Update to this situation - due to Team A (Washington) tanking, the LLWS made them play Team B in a tie-breaker game this morning.  Team B (Iowa) won and Team A goes home.  Beautiful display of karma.

Former AD Steve Pederson lead that drive, along with getting rid of the script Pitt, firing Walt Harris, before heading off to Nebraska to set them back several years, then returning to hire 3 coaches in 2 years.  Lets just say the Pitt fanbase is actually happy he is gone and there seems to be a lot of excitement with Narduzzi taking over for Chryst, who was a nice guy but not really a motivator.
