Make no mistake though; if Winston, Mariotta, the kid from Alabama, or anyone else's QB misses a sizable chunk of time, their school's national titile hopes will have been torpedoed; period. It ain't just an Ohio State thing.
We are young but talented; only three seniors in the OL meeting room, coach em up Mr.Ed!
Good article Ross. I'm predicting a big year for Jeff Heuerman; he really should become Braxton's security blanket when he's under pressure, instead of relying on his legs.
In addition to good position battles, my main hope for camp is for the Bucks to be injury free.
I really feel for you folks up in Toledo; we lived in Des Moines during the great flood in 1993 and lost water for like ten days.I remember like yesterday, waiting in line for water being handed out by the National Guard, and the guardsman seeing our newborn daughter in the backseat; he gave us two extra gallons. Stay strong Toledo, you're in our prayers!
I wonder; are there any before and after pictures of Curtis Samuel floating around out there??
Bo's just keeping an eye on the espn intern holding his pussy cat....
On the Mixon situation, it looks like the Norman PD is doing their job and not sweeping it under the rug like the Tallahassee PD did with Winston.
That apple (Dino) didn't fall far from the Tressel tree.
T-minus 33 days till Buckeye liftoff!!
OU's program is real good but actually, I'm pretty sure the other OSU; Oklahoma State is a tad better. My daughter who is smart like my wife was recruited by both of them a few years ago. Although the Stoops boys have good ties in that area, I've got to think a kid from St. Clairesville is destined to be a Buckeye
Someone mentioned "common sense" earlier, and clearly there is a major lack of it in America these days with these moron, SFB people who leave kids in hot cars!
Same deal for any of the top teams; Florida State if Jameson gets hurt, Baylor if Petty gets dinged, Oregon if Mariotta goes down and on it goes. The position of QB in college football is THE most important in any team sport IMHO.
The key for the Buckeyes this year is for the OL to protect, and Braxton to pitch it more then keep it on the option, throw it quickly and run out of bounds instead of putting the shoulder down for a few extra yards. Six weeks from tomorrow until kickoff; can hardly wait!!
As my teenage daughter would say, AJ was and still is the Bombdiggety! Always a proud Buckeye love that he's sporting the Scarlet & Gray on the links!
He's living alright. just bought a $1.2 million; 5500 square foot house in Jacksonville.
Just hold you're tongue and enjoy the beach and seafood AND next year when you go proudly wear your Buckeye National Championship gear!!
Fireworks...really michigan? This is supposed to be big time college football, not Single A baseball; what's next clowns on motor scooters throwing candy to the fans?
They did in the Rose Bowl, that's for sure!
I guess the kid wants mediocrity; not excellence; later gator.
The Gophers defense has not seen anything like Braxton and Company; no matter how cold it will be in the Minnie Apple, the Buckeye offense will light that place up!
I worked with Mark Stier when we were both with the steel company started by the late great John McConnell that's based in C-Bus. Mark is one of the finest human beings I've ever had the honor of knowing. One note on that Rose Bowl game, Mark caught and made a touchdown saving tackle of OJ, that might have changed the outcome of the game had the Juice scored.
Sports Illustrated has become the National Inquirer of sports rags; a POS publication for that UFM picture.
DJ, you just have to train her; my wife knows not to schedule anything on a Saturday from September to early January; period. Oh and give her a nice pair of Buckeye earrings!
Trust me, there's plenty of "wood" being sported on the OU campus with all of the hotties strolling around Norman; and they ain't wearing turtlenecks either!
Back in the day I worked a few summers at the old Westside Dodge; and the owner was a big OSU supporter who knew Coach Hayes. A few Buckeye players worked as, wait for it, used car salesman during the summer. Pete Johnson ( big teddy bear) and Ray Griffin were two of the guys one summer and they drove used cars as part of their job; nothing fancy like the Bama Boys, just basic transportation. And they did show up for work, pretty sure Woody made the dealership take attendence.
