I know we have to consider the level of competition here, but I was impressed by what my Buckeyes showed me tonight. Creative ball movement and they weren't afraid to shoot like last year. In fact, they rarely missed, especially in the first half. I'm eager to see how far this team can go. Go Bucks!

The comment above was not meant to be taken literally.... It was obviously exaggerated. But I'll be sure to italicize the last sentence for you next time.

Quarterback is a position group that is USUALLY held by a single player. We've seen the Florida team we lost to in the BCS NC game in 2007 utilize two QBs. Northwestern, an in-conference foe, did the same the past couple years. Northwestern's QBs (Colter and Siemian) each had their own skill sets that lead to their inclusion. Colter, the runner, while Siemian played a more traditional role. Sound familiar? Braxton would continue his dual threat role while Barrett gets more looks on passing downs. And while I will admit, I'd prefer to see Miller beside JT as a RB, WR, or hybrid, split reps at QB aren't necessarily out of the question.

I quite like the fights to be honest. I love the hostility. I love the physicality. I love the hatred. It's what makes this rivalry different than others. If you watch a video depicting the history and tradition of the rivalry that is Ohio State-❌ichigan you will see passion unlike any other. 364 days of pent up anger ready to be released on that final Saturday.

Braxton has proven more than capable of leading this team to victory. What has he done to lose the job? Nothing. As far as I'm concerned, Braxton is still the guy and Barrett remains the back up, until proven otherwise. However, due to JT's performances this year, I have no issues incorporating both players into the offense next year, especially given their differing skill sets. But I, like Urban, must assert that Braxton was, is, and will continue to be the QB at tOSU.

Not sure why you're getting DV here. No violations that I'm aware of. Just a realistic (if somewhat negative) opinion of Ohio States odds. And I must say, I agree.

Can't this be said about most sporting events? The last minute of a close football game is typically drawn out as well. But that's how the game is played. My lone correction would be to hold last minute commercials until after the game ends, wether timeouts are used or not.

Comment 26 Nov 2014

To be honest with you, I don't care if Barrett is the better QB next year. Braxton has been my guy for many seasons now. I want to see him under center. If the coaching staff chooses to split reps, fine. I would even advocate for more reps for Barrett, freeing Braxton up as a wideout or as a hybrid back. But to send Braxton elsewhere because the program is blessed with another prolific signal caller is unacceptable.

I hope Michigan has soaked every last drop of their mediocrity in over the last decade. All the embarrassment and humility. Use it as fuel. If this rivalry gets much worse, we may be forced to accept Penn State at rivals.

Comment 26 Nov 2014

Technically, Urban was available when Tressell resigned as the head coach of the buckeyes. But we all know that Fickle took over that dreadful year. However, with that said, clearly Ohio State would not have road it out with Tressell since he was no longer even with the program. 

Finally, if I were given a choice of Tressell's successor (excluding Urban) I would have likely have said Les Miles. Now? Dantonio is the obvious choice.

Nothing would please ❌e ❌ore than to watch Ohio State de❌olish Hoke one last ti❌e in person before ❌ichigan finally decides to win so❌e football ga❌es again. I❌agine the spark of hiring the next truly great football coach could have on this once great rivalry. Urban vs. ______? Harbaugh? It has the potential to be the start to a new Ten Year War. Or at least create a historic game like that of the fa❌ed #1 vs #2 in 2007. I crave what Alaba❌a and Auburn clai❌ to have in they're annual bout. I crave co❌petition, significance, and respect.
