I thought the same thing. They are supposedly the #3 team in the country, they play in a stadium that seats 45K, and they can't sell it out.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Yes, you are absolutely correct in that it would likely cause tOSU to lose a few spots in the US News rankings and similar lists. One could argue, however, that the purpose of a public institution is to educate the public. There are too many universities in the U.S. that are pursuing status at the expense of students.

No worries. As a former hockey player, I can tell you that I've seen people blow chunks after skating one of those. They're variously called 'suicides,' 'ladders,' 'Herbies,' etc... 

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I think you're thinking of Herb Brooks, who made his players skate suicides after they tied Norway in an exhibition game.

I assume he wears #132 because he's planning to be four times better than Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

I am going to go out on a limb and wager that this is the first time Lindy Fralin has been mentioned on 11W.

This is probably the youngest defense we've fielded since the late 60's. Compare this depth chart from last year's Michigan game:

... with the one from this year's Michigan game:

You can complain about coaching all you want, but you'll be hard pressed to find a dominant defense that's comprised of first and second-year players.

Comment 08 Dec 2013

tOSU rushed three for a big chunk of the UM game. The defensive line is young, and has shown consistent improvement over the course of the season.

Ohio State has a young defense, and will be better next year. The only seniors on the Ohio State depth chart tonight were C.J. Barnett and Pittsburgh Brown.

Comment 08 Dec 2013

Ohio State was outplayed. Hopefully, our guys tip their hats to Sparty, and wake up tomorrow morning and get back to work.

If we do play Clemson, we can finally pay them back for the time Charlie Bauman carelessly ran in to the outstretched hand of Wayne Woodrow Hayes in the `78 Gator Bowl.

I remember a writer calling Desmond's Heisman pose "One of the most under-criticized dick moves of all time." I wish I could remember who said it so that I could give proper credit.
