I am a Buckeye enthusiast with some good insight, and reliable information. I have bled Scarlet and Gray since birth, and a piece of me will always be with "THE" Ohio State University. Admittedly I cried when Ted Ginn Jr. was held from catching a game winning pass in the National Championship game, luckily for me, the crying didn't have to last long (I was 8 at the time). Jim Tressel is a straight up Wolverine killer and will forever hold my respect and admiration. Regardless I can't imagine myself cheering for any other football school in America. The traditions this program holds are something that is not easily forgotten. Singing "Carmen Ohio" with the team, and band after last years T.T.U.N. game was an experience I will never forget!

Go Buckeyes

He has long hair, but I appreciate the fact that you have that frame of reference! 

Comment 13 Jan 2015

We were considered underdogs and this is how I feel right about now 

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Sorry, I would have to agree. I was mainly addressing the absurd rumors going around. You're right he isn't an "Archie" type of guy. But I would hold him in the same regards as Evan Spencer, just more in the spotlight. A guy who does everything right for the program, and will go out and do anything asked of him. Regardless of who is starting QB next year Braxton has way to much talent to not play at some position. 

The nail in the coffin for me is simply the fact that he hasn't won anything. He's done everything he has needed to for this program except win a championship, and obviously the best place for him to do that is not Duke, LSU, or South Carolina. Its right at home where he has been for 4 years growing in a system that by now he should have full control of. 

Urban expects him back next year, and if that doesn't say enough..... I don't know what does. 

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Braxton has done to much for this program to leave with one season left. Its a disservice to his legacy for everyone to be drawing assumptions on were he will play next year. He didn't leave when Tressel was fired why the heck would he leave now. Unbelievably disrespectful after everything he has done to build this program. 

Comment 10 Dec 2014

Urban has been itching for a game like this since he stepped foot on campus. He's gonna get the guys ready to go and this game will be an all out war. I think we are definitely underestimated by people who know we lost to Va Tech and haven't watched a game since. 59-0 against the #16 team is not to be overlooked. Look out Bama. 

Comment 09 Dec 2014

This is not the same Bama team as years past. Now, yes they are a very talented team, but they have had some serious issues Bama teams normally dont' have. Most glaringly their secondary is not very strong to say the least. When you consider the fact Urban puts together a nasty underdog team, that this team is peaking, and that after last game they believe in themselves as a unit, we will do just fine. I think Cardale's 12 gauge of an arm, and Devin's deep play ability Bama will be on the fritz on night, leaving wide open lanes for Zeke. I think we win this one by two scores. I love being underdogs!

Comment 29 Aug 2014

This kind of works out since their weakness plays into our strength, as JT is looking for those short routes. Im way to excited. 

Comment 29 Aug 2014

Great article. Sound like Curtis Grants improvement will really be tested this game, as he plays a major role in not only leading the defense but making the right reads. Im really excited, and a little scared to be honest.
