I would hate to see him go simply based on his ability to recruit!  If he does decide to leave this would be a good spot for him to land and really build up his experience and resume as a head coach and get back under Tressel's tutelage.

Cool thought but I just cant stomach the idea of scUM actually getting to wear their home colors in Ohio Stadium on that field!!

With all the shooters and scoring options we have this year it seems as if Scott is really embracing the role of court general.  He can really concentrate on getting other players the ball in great position to score and on playing excellent defense! 

I know its early but I really like the makeup of this team and am really excited to see what they can become with the seasoning, experience, and cohesiveness that sure to come as the season really gears up!!

Once again I have no issue with doing some alternate unis for big OOC games but IMO we should be in our traditional home/away jerseys for conference play.

In all my years of watching football I have never witnessed a player do something like this and not have any penalty given.  It seems like this kid can literally do whatever he wants, on and off the field, and get away with it.  Karma will catch up to him weather it be this year or later in life.

If true this is great news for the team and for Noah himself because it means the team gets more Dline depth and the he has hopefully turned things around in his life!!!

Being from Akron, I always follow Doran closely and love the fact that he has blossomed into a great player, mentor, and leader on this Buckeye team!  It has been a pleasure watching him play in the S&G and it will be a pleasure to follow his career at the next level!!

Very solid read!  All this team can do is handle their business and win out.  If they do that then they will have done all they could do and placed themselves in a very good position to be in that top 4 when its all said and done.  I personally agree on where tOSU is ranked right now and I think the difference between TCU, MSU, and tOSU is very slim currently.

Very early in the season but I was blown away by Kentucky tonight.  They have matchup nightmares at almost every position and then there is the bench which is loaded with talent. 

Comment 18 Nov 2014

Really great to see.  I love the fact that he realizes he made a couple of mistakes but isn't in his own head bashing himself instead he is using it as an opportunity to get better.  This kid is a star in the making!!

Congrats to the both of you! 

A very nice early Christmas gift!!

Craft was my one of my favorite Buckeyes and it will be strange watching tOSU basketball without him on the floor. 

For as much recognition as Craft received for his D if you put him on a loaded scoring team like a Duke or Kentucky he would have fit in perfect as a lock down defender and a facilitator of the offense.  I think he would have been even more recognized and heralded in that role.  Matta just never had enough consistent scorers around him his last two seasons for this to ever come to fruition.  When he was relied upon to score it really magnified his flaws on the offensive end.  I think Craft would have fit in perfectly on this team.

I love this sort of passion and fire!!!  We will have to wait until Saturday to see if any of his teammates take it to heart!

Gonna have to seek this one out...Brown ales are one of my favorite styles of beer and it is becoming harder and harder to find quality examples.  I was devastated when Sierra Nevada canceled Tumbler as their fall seasonal.  Probably one of my favorite browns.
