Hopefully the defense will score again.

The forgotten man that may have been a star with the loss of Spence, but is gone due to his own boneheadedness, is Jamal Marcus.   He has to be kicking himself. 

Comment 24 Oct 2014

You must have missed it...he is already in.

With Ohio State's bye weeks over, and Rutgers coming to town, Urban Meyer joined former All-American Jim Lachey and the voice of the Buckeyes, Paul Keels, on the airwaves of 97.1 The Fan for Urban Meyer Coach's Call-In Show.

Rutgers is coming to town again?  I thought they would have already had enough.

Nice recap nonetheless.

Comment 23 Oct 2014

I wonder if it is like Shazier, where he weighed in higher at the beginning of the year, but since they are such physical specimens, lose weight as the year progresses?

Comment 23 Oct 2014

Sports writers are normally only geographical, located in one city, who follow the local team, especially the beat writers.  They can only rely on what they see on TV, so the largest sports network definitely can have an influence on their perception. 

Comment 23 Oct 2014

Too bad they decided to 'play ball' in some respects, hiring that no-talent-ass-clown SEC shill Clay Travis to participate on their morning pre-game show.  He is their PAAAAAAWWWWWWWLLLLLLL, only worse.

Comment 23 Oct 2014

Jay Glazer would agree whole-heartedly about the 'sources' being cited.  He has called them out numerous times when they try to claim one of his scoops as their own.

Comment 22 Oct 2014

Probably because he doesn't walk around the campus with a cardboard cut-out of JoePa.  They aren't known for being rational fans. 

Comment 14 Oct 2014

I initially thought Carlos Hyde was the biggest loss to the offense, but Eze is coming on nicely after a slow start.  Still hasn't broken a big one like El Guapo used to.  But it might be coming.

Spence became an even bigger loss because of his backup being an idiot.  Jamal Marcus reallly blew it.  So you essentially have the 3rd string DE as a starter...that is tough to overcome.  Hopefully some of the young guys come on as the season progresses, and thats nothing against Steve Miller, who has been adequate but not a game changer.    

Comment 07 Oct 2014

I get your point but MSU's defense wasn't controlling OSU's rushing attack at all when they ran off 24 straight points and 273 yards rushing in the game.  Hyde averaged 6.6 ypc and Brax had 142 yard rushing.

1-10 on third downs and 0-2 on fourth downs are what really did OSU in, including the 2 plays that could have sealed the game that everyone has already beaten to death, which can be put on the OC.

Now, MSU did shut down the pass for sure.  I think that may be the biggest improvement in this team though.  And MSU lost a 1st round CB.

I have faith that this team will get it done.

Comment 07 Oct 2014

FS1 had their chance to maybe compete with a good saturday morning pregam but they hired asshat Clay Travis.  He did a feature on Jamies Winston, calling him college football's biggest villian, but in the process couldn't help but take potshots at OSU and Tressel, which had nothing to do with his point.  He is really intolerable.       

Comment 03 Oct 2014

I made a point to check ESPN headlines and NOT surprisingly I could not find this story anywhere.

I  fixed that for you;  of course, if it was a rigged ticket raffle, SI probably would have been all over it.

This story,  as well as the twins with cerebral palsy from NY that Eze befriended (http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-football/2014/09/40335/urban-eze-the-osu-football-team-hosted-a-family-with-cerabral-palsy-twins-today), have been wonderful stories this season.

WIth the press that Adreian Payne got last season for his wonderful friendship with Lacey, you would hope more outlets would pick up on this even if to spread the word about this awful disease.  More proud than ever of this team and the character many of its stars have.

Comment 03 Oct 2014

Hoke's only 'good' season was with his predecessor's team.  Maybe RR just needed one more season to turn it around.

Then again, he tried to bring about a huge change with the modern offense and wasn't a '_ichigan' man, so he was almost doomed from the start.    

Comment 01 Oct 2014

I don't think anyone is saying OSU is academically superior to _ichigan (not yet at least), only the joke is that the _ichigan football players aren't on the same level as the Buckeyes academically.  Fans are only following suit from what Urban and crew have promoted before.
