Comment 19 Dec 2014

My 2 and a half year old son loves to run at you with his hands up - both at your front side where you can see him coming, and your back side where you can't. I've developed a pretty solid move to defend against the front side attack, but he'll still catch some unsuspecting victims off guard occasionally...

Comment 11 Dec 2014

Yeah - I would use "tournament caliber team" pretty loosely. They're making it in due to winning their conference, and would at best be a 13th or 14th seed. While that's better than some of the other competition OSU has faced so far (I'm thinking Sacred Heart), it still doesn't really seem like an opponent that's going to get this team ready for the conference schedule...

Comment 09 Dec 2014

I don't know that I would go quite that far... I think they'll get a significant boost with OSU in the playoff and potentially the championship game. They do a lot of basketball coverage through the bball conference season and tournament as well, which isn't completely dominated by OSU.

I think BTN could be a lot worse...

Comment 09 Dec 2014

I don't think they're really anti-OSU - I feel like their coverage is pretty evenly spread across the schools, and I don't think they have much ill will towards OSU. I think by nature, the teams that are in the national spotlight more have more said about them, and some of that is bound to be negative just a little.

If anything, the entire studio crew picked OSU to win against Wisconsin. Even I was surprised...

Comment 08 Dec 2014

I said no for now, but if they play like that against Alabama, then you bet.

Comment 07 Dec 2014

Alabama's secondary is certainly a liability - I said before the Wisconsin game that Cardale should have a field day with Devin Smith, and even I underestimated how well they'd do. If they can recreate that against Alabama, and the defense shows up like they did last night, OSU certainly has a chance.

Comment 03 Dec 2014

I think Cardale would have to be injured and out of the game for them to consider Collier coming in - with Jalin Marshall having QB experience, they're probably going to use him there more than normal this week, but I don't know if they could count on Jalin taking all the snaps if CJ gets hurt...

Comment 03 Dec 2014

I didn't get a chance to watch this yet, but the pace of the game from what I've read reminds me of the Wichita State game in the tournament a couple of years ago. I'd rather the team get this kind of game against a good team out of the way now instead of in the Elite Eight or whenever they played WSU.

Comment 01 Dec 2014

Looking at this video, I can see him connecting to Devin Smith on a couple of long balls.

Some of these throws look like they don't have a chance from his delivery, but he seems to have plenty of arm to make the throw...

Comment 01 Dec 2014

I guess it depends on how much you consider Braxton a part of the depth chart this year... If Braxton is theoretically the starter, JT was 2nd, and Cardale is 3rd. Doesn't so much matter now - Cardale is the starter for now.

DJ - sometimes less is more, and this is no exception. Thanks for your well placed words.

Comment 29 Nov 2014

I was really depressed as the whole situation was unfolding and knew we had the next in line (nothing against Cardale), but was pleasantly surprised to remember Jalin has lined up under center a few times and am very excited to see some more of that next weekend...

Comment 29 Nov 2014

I feel like he's gotta be pretty good to have been recruited into this system - I just haven't seen enough to know either way at this point... Sure he's done ok in garbage minutes the last two years, but I'll be interested to see what a week of preparation as the starter will do for his confidence/ability. 

Ideally, I'd love to see him play lights out and throw another wrench in the QB controversy for next year...

Who's the number 2 now? Collier?
