So what? What has Harbaugh done in all honesty at the college level? Solid, physical teams, sure. But nothing special. He had Andrew freaking Luck. He doesn't come around every year. 

Let Michigan get Harbaugh and continue to sustain their new level of mediocrity. 

Comment 23 Dec 2014

He has a handful of years coaching high school in the Dallas area, and with Texas being a priority for the job, it could happen. 

Comment 22 Dec 2014

Not sure why McDonald isn't starting besides the Matta "he gives us energy off the bench" talk. Well Amir doesn't give you anything, ever. Not sure why he's even out there usually. 

Comment 22 Dec 2014

By saying I expect OSU to win does NOT in ANY way mean i think it will be easy. 

But this team has overcome far more than a solid football team to get where they are now. I take my opinion of saying OsU may win because the coaching staff and players will put in the work to make it happen. 

I think they will win because the rest of America says they won't. And motivation is a big, sometimes deciding factor. 

I say osu will win because I'm a fan of the best damn college football team there is, scoreboard be damned. 

I believe OSU will beat Alabama. I do not, nor will I ever believe it will be easy, and I don't think most people expecting osu to win will or have ever thought it would be easy. 

There's a difference. 

Comment 22 Dec 2014

What an article. And a great story. These types of stories are probably more numerous than it seems and I sure wish they talked about these as much as they do about the bad things athletes do. 

Comment 22 Dec 2014

Right after the Marshall piece, and right before Kyle mentioned missing Barrett, I thought the same thing. 

I believe 12 Gauge will be fully prepared but Barrett's speed and quickness advantage over him would be even bigger in this game. But as Barrett showed throughout this year, a high powered offense doesn't need breakaway plays from qb runs, it just needs to keep the chains moving. And CJ is capable of that on qb runs I think. 

Can January 1st just get here already?! 

Comment 20 Dec 2014

Hundley debated coming out last year. He's not debating a 2nd season. He's going pro, without a doubt id say. 

Comment 20 Dec 2014

Sounds like Texas to me. Seemed like he and Malik Jefferson were close and with him committing to Texas. They need something good to happen right..? 

Comment 19 Dec 2014

I just have to laugh at people like this. 

No good, backwoods trash. 

And Alabama has been on a mission since Oklahoma? Why did they almost get beat by LSU and Arkansas and did get beat by ole miss then? Oh I forgot, those are sec teams so it doesn't matter. 

Comment 19 Dec 2014

I love all these players. To paraphrase many of them, "it was great finally winning the Big Ten, but we're chasing something bigger." 

OSU is back to expecting to win conference titles. The goal has changed. Now, it's about winning national titles. The B1G title is just a step toward that. 

Comment 18 Dec 2014

Remember, that amazing offense scored 10 points the first 59+ minutes of that LSU game before a fg to tie it and force overtime. 

Comment 18 Dec 2014

Everyone hates OSU and that's fine with me. If we have to go against the rest of the country by ourselves, so be it. If we're the only team to win bowl games and have to constantly battle the big ten's awful perception by ourselves, so be it. If we have to win every big ten game and basically go undefeated to make the playoff, so be it.

Do all of those things and continue to win and let the rest of the conference ride these scarlet and gray colored coattails. They're about to find out again what conference domination is, and if they wont want to give OSU credit when and where it's due, let them all just be another victim to destroy along the way.

Comment 18 Dec 2014

I don't get why people are getting go crazy when so many pick against the Buckeyes. 

WE HAVE URBAN FRICKIN MEYER! 

Let EVERYONE pick Bama. And then watch as Meyer motivates this team. And yet again creates hungry players. Because 'hungry players are dangerous players.' 

Comment 17 Dec 2014

What an awesome article. 

Excellent work, Ramzy. 

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Turnovers. Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers. 

Take away the turnovers in most of the games osu played this year and see how different those games are. Michigan is a rivalry. Throw out the score. A win is a win in that game, no matter how close. 

But if OSU doesn't turn it over, this team will play with anyone. 

Comment 16 Dec 2014

With Herman now going to Houston, have a feeling they will stay ahead of Michigan throughout this recruiting cycle... 

Comment 16 Dec 2014

If winning a national championship is the goal, why would anyone be satisfied with winning a national semifinal? Sure, it was great to finally win the Big 10 again, but that's just a step to the ultimate goal: a national championship. 

Comment 15 Dec 2014

Depth is critical to winning championships, I agree. 

But a lot with some of the comments above, I think it may come down to attitude. I see OSU's players being on side or the other. Either all those freshmen go in thinking, "Alabama? No big deal and mean it." Since many of them were recruited by Alabama or they go in thinking "oh god. Alabama?! What are we doing here?" 

I tend to think those young guys won't make any big deal about Alabama and come ready to play against 'just another team.' 

Comment 15 Dec 2014

This is where I was going. Thanks for the stats. The college game started to change when Meyer took over Florida and it was evident that from about 06-resignation that Tressel was only keeping up to content for Big Ten championships, not national championships. 

Comment 15 Dec 2014

He's been linked to Power 5 jobs already. Helfrich has been a head coach for 2 years now. Can't develop a tree in 2 years. And Meyer had to start somewhere. Maybe Frost is the beginning of Helf's tree. 

Just see too many negatives to outweigh coaching for OSU and Meyer with where his career is at right now. 

Comment 15 Dec 2014

I don't get why people think Frost would consider osu. Because MM is leaving? That would be a lateral move. Frost is just as likely as OSU to win a national title right now and he could probably, as Herman has, get a head coach position right now to further his career. 

Wouldnt mind it, just don't see any way it happens. 

Comment 15 Dec 2014

Agreed. I believe Franklin and psu are the only team right now that may challenge once he gets them and depth back up. Depending on who Michigan hires, they could as well. 

I'm going to hold off on Michigan state another year or so before saying they can compete year after year. A Baylor win will go a long way though, for me. 

Comment 15 Dec 2014

The Big Ten better catch up and they better catch up quick.

I thought this shortly after Meyer was hired. Give him a few years and the conference will have a hard time keeping up. 

Tressel was a good coach, but he wasn't ready for today's college football world. Meyer and the Buckeyes are going to run away from the conference (if they haven't already) because of constantly recruiting elite talent at every position, something that couldn't always be said for Tressel's tenure.
