Parents worked at OSU and started taking me to games when I was 4. Had Season tickets for 24 years before moving to Nashville TN. Watch games with Middle TN Alumni Club....Most fun watching the Bucks other than being at the Shoe...If you are in Nashville on a Fall Saturday, come to our Gamewatch.

Honestly, I am shocked that MSU is getting so much love. Yes, they had a great year last year, but our D-line lived in their backfield most of the game last year.  Games are won at the line of scrimmage and OSU simply has more talent there than MSU.  The same goes for playmakers on Offense. When one team has a Top 5 Recruiting class every year and the other struggles to be in the Top 25, the numbers don't lie.

Poor Def. coaching cost us last year and i think that has been fixed.

That is one of the big unknowns of the season. UFM said in his presser that 6 guys are right there and should play.  Personally, I am hoping Dontre and Jalin make the explosive plays off short passes, Devin hits some Home Runs, and Michael Thomas leads in receptions.  Heuerman and Vannett should both be weapons at TE.

Lots of talent there and a big unknown at QB. I'm thinking that JT shows everyone this year why UFM recruited him here.

Navy is a tough Offense to deal with, but generally does not have enough athletes on D to stop good teams. Not really the combination you want to face with a brand new QB on the road. Hoping that Chris Ash' D can follow their assignments and utilize their superior athletes on D early on to get a sizable lead.

It was the 1977 Oklahoma game. OSU was down 20-0 early and stormed back to lead 28-20 late in the 4th Quarter. Oklahoma scored a TD late but was stopped on the 2 pt. conversion.  All OSU had to do was recover an onside kick to win 28-26.  Instead, the kIck went to the 3rd (or 4th) QB Mike Strahine (#6), he bobbled it, Oklahoma recovered, and long-time Miami Dolphin kicker Uve Von Schamann put the final nail in the coffin to beat OSU 29-28.  

This game scarred a 9-year old OSU fan enough that i never forgave Von Schamann and never forgot who dropped that onside kick. 

Castignola was #7 and actually played in the game, but it was #6 that missed the kick.

TRIVIA QUESTION:  There is person on the above list of players whose only significant contribution at OSU was NOT catching an onside kick that was kicked at him.  Anyone know who that person is and what game i am referring to?

CINSERIOUS:   Really curious.....what did you mean about me being a liar? I was assuming you were just yanking my chain about being excited about a nothing game, so I played your comment off as a joke. I thought you would at least respond to my earlier reply. Since u didn't, I am asking the above question.

BTW....it was a good game. 56-35 E. Wash. wins. I watched less than a quarter but it was on as background noise for longer than that.

SEC classes are always bigger than the rest of College Football. Since they are all honorable institutions (cough! cough! Bull$?1T cough! cough!), then it must be that they have more under-performing players that suddenly have career-ending injuries or family issues that make them have to transfer. Either that or they basically cut players that aren't good enough so they can recruit more to replace them.

When you can sign 110 players over a 4 year period instead of 90, you have more depth and can take chances on more players of questionable character.  Doesn't completely explain 6 straight NCs but it sure helps.

You must be too young to remember Tom Klaban. One of the great individual game performances vs. scUM hitting 4-4 FG in a 12-10 win in 1974.  I was 6 years old and in the Horseshoe that day and it is probably the earliest game that I have clear memories of.

Yeah. I guess that NC-winning play by Cie Grant was OK, too.

You are right. i don't need no stinkin' Visine to watch Football on a Red field. I do have some, though,

4,256 hits...Not sure that record will ever be broken. Please put him in the HOF while he is still with us.

1st day of ESpin New Employee Orientation......."OK...Repeat after me....SEC - GOOD!......BIG 10 - BAD!"

Comment 21 Aug 2014

1.....1 All-Big 10 for OSU and 7 for Sparty! Sounds like some extra motivation to become an ANGRY FOOTBALL TEAM!   8 days, 13 hours away from kickoff

Comment 21 Aug 2014

I say steal what you can from other successful coaches/programs to add to your own. We could do a lot worse than studying what Chip Kelly does on Offense.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Guilty, too. I am looking at 15-0 now. If we lose a game, I will be hoping for 11-1, a B1G Championship, and rooting for everyone else to lose 2 games so we still get in the playoff.

To me, it is after the season before I can step back and consider anything less than a B1G Championship a successful season.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Hopefully Chris Ash wins the Extreme Makeover College Football edition contest and turns that disaster of last year into a dominating D. The talent is there unless every recruiting expert ever is wrong.
