But we were saying the same thing about the 2014 team. Until the team was tested and lost, we didn't know what we had. We were young as well back then. Not saying we are going to run the table and win the championship. I'm saying the season isn't over, and now is the time for some guys to step up. We are 7 games into the season instead of 2 and have built a lot of groundwork already on a young team. Does this push them the extra bit that is needed. Only time will tell.
I love the banner.
The one thing I remember as I left the VT game in 2014 is that we would never win with an offensive line like that...
I said to my buddy that went to the game with me. Oh, how that comment was true. We lost, our o-line was dominated, and then it all just clicked for the team. As others have said, we just need to win one game at a time now.
11W is deleting threads where the comments should be here...
Just my opinion, but 0% chance this happens. JT is the TD leader at OSU for reason. I know some haven't been against great teams but he's also played amazing in games where we've needed him.
You don't put a guy with 0 meaningful snaps in for a guy who is comfortable reading defenses, lead the team to the B1G championship game two years ago and has a w/l ratio most schools would love to have, much less QBs. I know we aren't most schools but it's just not feasible that a young QB will be better than an experienced QB when neither have any time. Again, just my opinion but I backed JT all least year as well.
PSU would be knocked out by #1 and then it would go to the head and head against Michigan.
Wasn't trying to argue with them but we are all frustrated.
Just hear it on TV as well that we hold our own destiny and we don't unfortunately. I'm not sure how it all goes if we all lose 1 game in conference.
EDIT: SORRY Green, I was wrong about the way the B1G chooses a champ.
Quick Google Search:
If three or more teams are tied, steps 1 through 6 will be followed until a determination is made. If only two teams remain tied after any step, the winner of the game between the two tied teams shall be the representative.
1. The records of the three tied teams will be compared against each other.
2. The records of the three tied teams will be compared within their division.
3. The records of the three teams will be compared against the next highest placed teams in their division in order of finish (4, 5, 6, and 7).
4. The records of the three teams will be compared against all common conference opponents.
5. The team with the best overall winning percentage [excluding exempted games] shall be the representative.
6. The representative will be chosen by random draw.
Well, I don't know how it works. We'd all have 1 loss, with us holding the head to head over Michigan and PSU holding the head to head over us. I'd assume it goes to PSU.
Yeah, it would be nice to win that game. The issue is, winning that game and they still go to the B1G Championship. Them and Penn State both have 1 loss in conference and Michigan holds the head to head.
Iowa is my hope for them losing a game.
We can't win the B1G without Penn State losing...
We also need help as well. Penn State can't also win out.
Ah, gotcha. I thought you had it, or maybe you did and sold it. It was the ball with Chuck Csuri's autograph. We talked about it for a while but I was getting ready to have Ohioste baby girl 2 and didn't want to tick the wife off :)
Hope all is good with you!
I don't post often but always look at this thread when it comes up to the top. Normally always means there's something new I want. :)
Also, if you still have that football signed by what we believe is the 1942 team, send me a message and let me know what you were asking for it again. I can't remember.
Thank you for this. I had ND fan sitting in my office as I was scrolling through and he looked at what I laughed out loud at.
As soon as I read this, I hoped IL would see it. As Hove said, you have the right man for the job.
It's really weird seeing the majority of these guys in blue.
I don't like it.
Ha, I always keep an eye out for little things here and there to add to the mancave. I know, you still probably have that football signed but I just can't make you a good offer. I mainly look for stuff with Chuck Csuri's name on it. I was the one who had lunch with him a few years back so always try to find stuff since I have a bit of personal connection with him.
I've got two little ones now so not able to spend a ton.
Yeah, I saw that he had quite a bit of other stuff as well. I hadn't ran across it before but found the telegram interesting. Anytime I see anything Buckeye collectible, I think of you and try to pass it along.
Plus, one of my main searches is always 1942 Ohio State to make sure that I don't find anything too good to pass up with Chuck's name on it.
IL, not sure if you've seen any of this stuff on Ebay. The seller says he knew Les. This was a pretty sweet piece but so is the price:
To be fair, he was with what I assume is his daughter(in law?) and grandchild.
Completely off topic but I walked into Polaris mall yesterday and there stood Coombs in the Apple store. It was tempting to walk up and talk but I kept my boyhood fandom at bay and walked my daughter to the play area. Still was neat to see him. He seemed calm but I'm sure the Apple store team was more motivated after talking to him.
I post very little but the image is there. Prayers are with you from my family.
Just bumping this to see if anyone has anything for sale.
