Love is never having to say you're sorry. Especially to a turd like Hairball. Watching Bosa destroy the skunk weasels three years in a row you just know he loved it. Thus, never having to say you are sorry, even with a little sarcasm added in. Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations to Orlando Pace. Now the Pro HOF matches the College HOF with the three best tackles to ever play football: Jim Parker, John Hicks, and now Orlando Pace. Let us all have a huge stack of pancakes to celebrate. Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Free throw shooting dooms the Buckeyes again. 7 more made free throws would have put a W in the win column. I suggest that this team spend 1 hour everyday (practice day or not) just shooting free throws. One of the assistant coaches has to be able to coach them. Paulus was pretty good as I remember at the FT line. Still, the future does look bright for the men. I love the hustle from Giddens and Thompson. Even Loving hustled a few times today. Keep your head up and go full out. Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!!!!!1
Not surprised by the overnight rating. Did anyone outside of Dixie really watch this game. I had zero interest and spent zero seconds on it. Without The Ohio State University Buckeyes involved it was a non-entity.
Welcome new Buckeyes. The three on the back row look like they are ready to dine on skunk weasel.
Tommy Schutt, thanks for 4 strong years. Our best wishes for great success in your future.
Energy and effort will bring positive results everytime. KBD and AJ are a super spark for OSU. Keep it going Buckeyes.
Really good game to finish the preseason. My favorite part was watching Thompson and Giddens actually play basketball. They played defense, rebounded and scored, too. What a great change from what we suffered through the last 4 years. If they keep growing, the 5 spot for Coach Matta won't be a constant worry this season. Keep the momentum going BBallers and smash through the BIG. Go Buckeyes
Too bad the pre-season is over so soon as the young BBall Buckeyes are really starting to play well. Saying that, it is great to see them playing well now that the real games are beginning on Wednesday. Go Buckeyes, beat the Bears and then start the BIG season with a win over the gophers. Go Buckeyes
Defense and rebounding will always lead to wins. Go Buckeyes
Johnny, a really good article with lots of yucks. Just a few corrections though:
1. Utah State Aggies, Utah is the Utes
2. Chris Ault retired 10 years later not 20 but you were right about his hissy-fit after losing to BG.
3. In 1970 & 1971 Toledo was ranked in the Top 20 at the end of the season, I remember #11 or 12 in '71.
Go Buckeyes, beat ND.
Way to go, mate. Congrats on keeping W.U on their heels all game. Go Buckeyes, beat IU.
No better reason to be a Buckeye fan than how this team honors the real heroes in life. Absolutely extreme high class from the coaches to the players and everyone involved with the sport. My best wishes to Jarvis as he battles this challenge.
Great recap of WMU. Coach Meyer sees all and knows all about getting his team prepared for the stretch run the next 8 games.
On Jones: has anyone else noticed that he very seldom throws a pass that the received has to keep running and reach out to grab? Almost everytime the receiver has to slow down or stop to catch the pass. Please come back Devin Smith.
On the interior D line and McMillan: it got to be gut wrenching on Saturday watching that run up the middle. You could almost predict it on 2nd and short. Coach Fickell needs to teach McMillan to watch the ball and fill the hole as the back comes to it instead of just rushing forward where he thinks the hole will be. Maybe it was the scheme or maybe Fickell called the wrong coverage but it was hard to watch. Thank goodness the WMU line got called for holding or they would have had at least 2 more TDs.
Go Buckeyes and beat that team in Columbus West.
Since I am not making $5+MM to make this decision I won't ask why. However, I will stop watching until this proves to be a good decision. Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
T - 60 and counting, GO BUCKEYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This proves that Buckeye Nation is alive and well in all times and all places.
My deepest sympathy to the family.
Remember the Akron game and saying Tyrell who? What a short, painful feeling that was.
Because I have lots of Scarlet and Gray decor in my man cave, my then 4 year old granddaughter began calling it the "Brutus Cave." I raised my two daughters to be Buckeyes and my two granddaughters are being raised right, too. Go Buckeyes!!!!
P.S. how many of you outside of Ohio have a Governor that is President of the local Ohio State Alumni Association? Nevada does and he gave me the O - H sign yesterday.
Screw that community college on the Ohio River. I have hated them since 1961 when they stole the NCAA Bball championship from the Buckeyes. My hate for the skunkcats isn't as intense as my hatred for aa community college, but really, really close.
Its 3:45 p.m. in Nevada and ttun still sucks
Can't wait for September 7 and the beginning of Chase Redo. Go Buckeyes!!!!!
Slice it anyway you want, Ohio State's free throw shooting has been embarrassing for years. If you look at all the close games the Buckeyes have lost over the last ten years, my best guess is better free throw shooting would have won a vast majority of those games. FT shooting was the one part of my game that was the hardest to practice but I always spent extra time at the line because I knew it could pay dividends. It is by far the easiest shot in basketball but for this team it is the hardest.
It is 10:25 am PST and _ichigan still sucks. Go Buckeyes!!!!!
If someone else posted something like this, please forgive me.
Grown up folks. Sure it may be shaky for Coach Drayton to leave so quickly after getting Weber to commit and sign with Ohio State. The outrage seems really childish to me. Did anyone react like this last fall when Weber dumped _ichigan as soon as scum dumped its head coach shortly after Weber committed? I don't remember a lot of outrage then.
This is a business and Coach Drayton needs to do what is best for his family and himself, not what is best for Ohio State and the football team. Urban Meyer preaches family first and then the school and team next. If Weber wants out so bad, let him go and "next man up" for the Buckeyes. I have always been suspicious of _ichigan guys playing for the Buckeyes anyway.
It is 11:59 a.m. and ttun STILL SUCKS!!!!!
Being a Buckeye since 1957 (watched the 58 Rose Bowl on a 17 inch screen, black & white TV with my dad and brothers) my favorite year is still the 1968 National Champions. Still 2014 will always be a huge favorite for all that the Buckeyes overcame, suffered, struggled, steamrolled and proved all true Buckeyes right in believing. By reading all of the comments through out the season I am beginning to think of being in the huge minority of fans that knew this team could and would achieve greatness. I never doubted (even after the VT game) that Urban Meyer and his staff would mold this team into National Champions. My mantra has always been "if they stay healthy and play to their potential, the Buckeyes can beat any team." For the most part the 2014 Buckeyes stayed healthy and really played above and beyond their potential. Now and forever the team can claim themselves as the best of 2014.
Now lets concentrate on 2015 and repeating. Go Buckeyes!!!!! It is 9:05 am PST and _ichigan still sucks.
