We can talk all day long, but I think it'll take Raekwon to actually perform. I'm expecting 'Kwon to be a BEAST out there. Haven't seen anything from Grant that deserves the spot other than being a senior who has been through some rough times. I feel for the kid, but until I see it on the field, this is my honest opinion. I'd love nothing more than for Curtis to have a breakout season, though.
I still want to see some Malcolm Jenkins type of fire from someone. He was ready to body slam someone every play. God, I miss that kid. We need that PASSION from everyone, but especially the CBs. Bring the circle drill attitude to the field!
You know, I'm familiar with another JT who won a National Championship with the Buckeyes unexpectedly. ;)
Holy crap, I love this post! Hype level... rising.
So if you...if you see me hunkered down in your town... I'm just watchin' the clock on the wall, 'til I can go to the place I love most of all.
The man sugarcoats NOTHING. Gotta love him.
This is how you write an article. Thank you, sir. I can feel the Tressel seeping through your writing. I'm sure Urban wouldn't mind printing this and handing it out.
Gotta admit, if you aren't from here you wouldn't understand. There's something that draws you back. I have kicked and ranted about our state. I've left, but never stayed gone. If you don't feel anything after reading that letter, I'd question if you grew up here. I know countless people who talk about leaving, but there's something great here that keeps them from going. One of those things will take place a few Saturdays from now and I'm so ready for it that my heart is about to beat out of my chest. Almost go time!
Always with the heart attacks.
All in. Go Bucks!
Or... why firing the right people helps everything.
"DID WE WIN? DID WE WIN!??"
No, and it's time for you to go with that shitty attitude and inability to accept responsibility for your downfalls.
And if you don't think this falls on his shoulders, you have learned nothing this year. I keep seeing people putting it on the athletes, yet EVERYONE has been burned due to the way they've been coached. Fundamentals. They can't all be making the same stupid mistakes just because they don't have the talent. Nothing that could be rectified has been, period. Not only that, but I have seen NO hint that he thinks they NEED to fix it.
That, my friends, is a problem. Having said all that, I love this team and especially the seniors. All heart. Jack Mewhort is a champion. I love the way this guy carries himself on the field and in the media. I wish I could say the same for Fick.
Damn right! Love this.
Not yet he isn't...
RAGE and ROLL HYDE.
Damn bug. I've had it, too. It's been more like 72 hours, though. Just now starting to feel a little better. Hope these guys are ready to go, but I don't doubt that it will linger for a while.
Oh well, all the more reason to BRING THE JUICE!
I had a long comment typed up for this, but instead I think I'll just say:
I'm sorry, Carlos Hyde. I'm so... so... sorry, man. I'm sorry because I believe you wanted this win more than anyone. I'm sorry because I saw more heartbreak resting on your shoulders than anyone else when it was all said and done. I'm sorry that Urban's infatuation with Braxton cost you an opportunity for boosting your draft stock in the national title game. Most of all I'm sorry that we're losing the real heart and soul of this team after this year.
Good luck, BEAST! I know you'll do us proud.
I apologize in advance, but it's just so fitting right now:
No, but seriously. I'm going to watch Christmasy junk on TV tonight and just try to bask in the comfort of nostalgia and laughter. We are a spoiled bunch, even if the defense has been awful. Great to be a Buckeye. This isn't nearly as bad as some of the losses we've suffered and it came after a 24-0 run. Time and change... and a bit more change will lead to big stage wins. I have no doubt about that. So close to being a more of a powerhouse than the program already is.
It stings, obviously. But we have so much to be thankful for and we'll pick up and move on from this. Here's to a good showing a the Orange Bowl.
How dare you try to claim that my family will EVER be more important than an Ohio State National Championship!! This is the only STAGE that matters.
Sleep? No. Sleep is for the weak.
IS IT GAME TIME YET!?!?
I support the emotions, but seeing these colors together makes my skin crawl.
