Lifelong Buckeye back in Ohio. Spent 4 years in the heart of SEC country. It was awful. But the women were beautiful.

An article that mentions Brady Hoke and deep-fried twinkies, but yet (somehow) the two aren't connected.

I'm gonna go lie down for a while.

I think as long as our front 7 keeps the pressure up, he'll be forced into throwing some bad balls. If we can capitalize on a few of those ducks, then I can't foresee our D struggling with containing this offense. It seems to me that this is what the flow of the game boils down to.

On the other hand... If Kiel has all day to throw, we could be up shit creek. But I'm not betting on that.

Why is no mentioning the possibility of a QB controversy? If Barrett turns out to be a stud and OSU wins 10-11 games... Do you automatically hand the team over next season to a guy who hasn't actively played in 19-20 months (at that point)?

I love Braxton and want to see him do well, but if Barrett shows he can be the guy, you can't axe him. Possibly use Braxton all over the field, including some under center looks. Would be great to have two nasty athletes that can play QB.

It's JT time now. No looking back or what could've been. We've got a guy under center that's been taking first team reps all year long. Time to step it up.

Best wishes to Braxton. Get well, man. And if not, cash in on that insurance policy.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

At the end of the day, JT is the guy we'd all be talking up this offseason as Brax's replacement. The hell with waiting, let's start hyping JT up now. Meyer, Herman, et al say he's a leader. They say his accuracy is spot on. His tapes show that he can be mobile. He's got "it," so they say. I'll trust what the coaches have to say and what his youtube tapes show he can do.

Fuck it. If JT is gonna be our guy, I'm on board.

If anyone neglected to read the article on Afroman, and the proceeding comments, I'll leave you with the winner of internet comment of the day:
 

"Dude did a show at a frat party at LSU like 2 years ago and lived outside the house in his van for the next week only went into the house to shower and do coke"

Comment 29 Jul 2014

I tend to agree with both Meyer and Spielman, or at least with parts of their stance. One need only look to the last two games of last year to see that our LB's got exposed on several plays, certainly not in the "romanticized" way we view guys like Hawk, Laurinaitis, etc. We tend to look at the past with a much rosier lens than very recent events. Those guys weren't perfect either, but revisionist history is what it is. I'm certainly optimistic with this group... As I am with nearly every LB core the Buckeyes put on the field.

Watched him play a few weeks ago... He looked slick. He's definitely got the god-given talent to play on Sunday. If he can develop and polish his mental game in the AFL, then who knows what he could be capable of.
