I wonder if they consider the new OC they brought in from Alabama, Nussmier.... I don't think Harbaugh is a possibility from the bad blood from a couple years ago.
So, the cover 4 is pretty much a Prevent.... Not a big fan of conceding ground, but at the same time, it takes away the big dieep play. I would prefer a little more press and save the cover 4 for third and LONG.
I can understand everyone's hatred of scUM (I hate the piss out of the 'Weenies, too!), but there comes a time when we need to put aside that hate for our bitter rival, and do what is best for our conference.
Wow! I am impressed with Decker, both the way he plays, motivates, and speaks. I see a future coach in this young man, of course after his NFL career is over.
Better to lose him to an OOC program than to TSUN... I can live with losing him to Notre Lame, but not the OTHER....
I am a little confused over some of the articles I have read about this....
So, CAN Noah be reinstated by the B1G to play in the B1G again? I read that he was suspended indefinitely, and to me that means permanent. By enrolling in a substance abuse, can he make it back this year?
I sure hope so, not for us and Ohio State, but for Noah. He has a future in the NFL, and I would hate to see this young man mess up his life for the poor decisions he made earlier. I think he will get his life in order.

Amen! JT will be very effective once Herman calls plays to fit his strengths, and the strengths of the O-line. You simply cannot call deep passing routes or double-move routes when the blitz is coming every damn down.
Up-vote for you!!
Saw that game.... Normally, keeping your offense on the field for long drives can neutralize the Cincy offense, but their defense is so bad, we may see plenty of 6-play or less TD drives. Our defense will need to be prepared.
HAHAhahahahahahhaaaa!! Ramzy - I love your sense of humor!! You do GOOD WORK!
I certainly agree with the idea that the best player plays, period, whether he is a senior, junior, sophomore, or freshmen. This is college football, and the main goal is to win the National Championship. I know these are student athletes, but for sports, we are not focusing on the classroom aspect. Since they are on the team and on scholarship, grades must be in order or they do not play.
In high school I can understand being loyal to your seniors when the talent is even, and given that situation in college, I would agree. But, if you have a player that is just a little better than the senior, you play the best player.
In a few years, studs like McMillan, Samuel, Marshall, and others may find themselves in a heated battle with an incoming freshman and their playing time may be in jeopardy. I see that as a huge plus as a fan. This shows that Ohio State is continually bringing top-quality talent and our starters must push to always get better - or get passed by. Not a bad problem to have, eh?
And how many litter boxes will be put in the restrooms for the cats??
Don't forget that UC has a HORRIBLE defense. I don't think they will be able to stop us 25% of the time. We should come close to doubling the points that Toledo put on them.
I love Alexander's response. He is not a prima dona and he doesn't expect to be handed anything. This is the type of attitude we want and need at TOSU. LOVE it!!
Federer sounds like the Real Deal, and if he's as good as advertised, I would expect to see him start Game 1 his freshman season... Sounds like the rebirth of Orlando Pace... I can only hope...
Right BRBAND64 - like herpes!
I would like to see the conference expand to 16, 18, or even 20 teams and try to get Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Missouri, or even Kentucky or Arkansas to join. We need to become the country's first Mega Conference.
We need to add a few more teams, but we should not settle for middle of the pack tradition in football. We need to add schools with rich history and tradition. I know Arkansas, Kentucky, and Missouri may not fit that description, but UK would be a great add for basketball.
I thought it was Purdon't....
As much as I don't like to do it, I say if the NCAA is not going to stop the oversigning, the B1G needs to make this a habit and regular practice as well. This is one way we can start to help level the playing field.
I also would like to see more home and home series against the B1G and SEC schools.... Although I can think of three SEC schools that would not be in favor of crossing the Mason-Dixon line (Alabama, Florida, and LSU for starters). If they cannot have home games, they want a home-style draw and crowd for OOC games.
Hell, I didn't even notice her FACE!! Holy bouncing Betty's!!
I agree with you, Squirrel Master, and I think that once these guys make plays in a big game, they will get the recognition.
I prefer to let the professionals teach my children the basics needed, as school work goes. The children also learn social skills and how to "fit in" to society. To me, home schooling is not a very good option. Please, leave this to professionals when your decision needs to be made for your children.
While I was spanked as a kid, I do not agree with coproral punishment, and I do not nor have not spanked my boys. There were a few times when my boys were young though, that I did smack them on the butt to get their attention, because talking was clearly not working at the time. Once I got their attention, I explained why I did what I did, and why they were in trouble. I then sent them to their room for a time out. Fifteen minutes later, I called them from their room, and asked if they were ready to act the correct way. I did not hit them hard enough to hurt them, I just got their attention.
I believe that parents need to reason with your kids, to teach them right from wrong, and what consequences come with each choice, both right and wrong choices. By spanking kids, you only teach them pain...
I also see many kids like the teachers who have posted talk about. These kids are obviously products of lazy parents. I have personally seen a child get in trouble with teachers and the parents come back and say "My son wouldn't do that." Well, let me tell you, not only do their kids do what they were accused of, but they are into WAY MORE trouble than their parents know. Trust me, I know this from experience and my sons had a friend like that. My wife and I put a stop to our boys hanging out with that kid, and our sons also did not want to hang with him.
The moral of my ramblings is that your kids WILL LISTEN to you if you talk WITH THEM and not AT THEM. There are times where you CAN be a friend to your kids, instead of parents. And trust me, it works.
I'm with you, Youngstown Bucki!! I would love to see another "The Game" that has #1 playing #2 in the country again before I die, and OSU whooping on some more 'Weenie ass.
The best rivalry in all of sport deserves to have both teams at their best. We're doing our part, UM better step it up.
If and when it happens, that pic will replace the great one-handed TD catch by Devin Smith against Miami for me!
So, will we bring Judson is as a QB? It seems we are going to have a log-jam of QBs on campus in the next 2-3 years. Are there plans to move any to another position?
WOW! A nice problem to have, indeed.
The brutal reality of the AP poll is this: the media loves the SEC. Any team that "takes care of business" will no doubt be moved up. The B1G on the other hand, will only be moved up if we beat a tough opponent, and when all deserving SEC teams have been up-voted first....
Don't ever forget that the SEC rules college football.... (italics implied)
