Rod Gerald's injury in 77 was killer. That's why Greg Castignola was in. Although Greg played pretty well in relief, Rod Gerald was a special talent - witness his performance in the 77 Orange Bowl win over Colorado. Also, OU's offense was as sloppy as it was explosive in those days. Multiple fumbles during a game were common. If only OSU would have recovered the OSK though. 

Ah, c'est la vie.

Mack, Hausmann, Farrell, and Jordan all play on offense. Pridgeon might, but I don't see him supplanting Prince or Jones.

Cooper, Barrow, Fuller, and Davis play significant time on defense. I may be in the minority, but I think Bosa plays much less than his brother did as a freshman as he grows into a 3-technique tackle. He'll play, just not as much as many predict. But I think he'll be excellent down the road.

I think you misinterpreted the post. You may want to revisit your reaction upon re-reading it because I didn't see the poster take the position you're asserting.

Great points. I agree with most everything you said. I would also add that I like the direction that recruiting has taken. Thad seems to be putting the recruiting focus back on Ohio, and especially central Ohio. That has always been a good formula. If he regularly gets the best players in Ohio, OSU will contend for the B1G and be a tournament player.

Not a Kees fan. He's got great tonality but his mistakes during a broadcast are mind boggling. 

I go back to Marv Homan and my favorite OSU play by play guy was Chuck Underwood. His "Touchdown Buckeyes" calls were amazing in an era where maybe two games would be on TV. Of course he was history once WBNS put a stranglehold on OSU broadcast rights.

Ah, the old days. :)

A wonderful sentiment, but it actually highlights a common misunderstanding about depression. Mental illness is usually not about circumstances. Kosta may have actually found his place and still also found himself clinically and chronically depressed. That's part of what makes depression so hard to beat.

My hope is that Mr. Karageorge can manage his guilt. It's not his fault. No more than cancer would be his fault. 

RIP Kosta and positive thoughts for the Karageorge family.
