It was NOT Zeke's hospitalization that was the issue. 

If he was so weakened and sick, why the F//K would they have him blocking in the second half??

What I remember is this - we never trailed until the end of the game and yet Zeke only carried the ball TWICE in the second half.  He wasn't on the sidelines getting an IV, he was in the game, blocking.  It was ridiculous, and yet, credit to the best coach OSU has ever had, the next week in Ann Arbor, it all got corrected.

Zeke apologized for his timing and his tone, but he did not take back the points he made. And he was right.

One of the reasons we need to keep the long-view historical perspective on OSU's success is, Meyer won't coach forever.  We hope it's a "clean handoff" to the next guy (Herman?) but one of the aspects of a great football program is it lives beyond coaching changes.  And part of our long term id will always be Ohio kids playing in the Horseshoe. It just doesn't get more classic than that.

Yes, I know Craig Krenzel is from Detroit, but Archie? he could have ridden his StingRay to the stadium.

Go Bucks.

Love his highlights, except for the plays where he destroys guys on kick returns.  I don't enjoy seeing someone get their helmet knocked off when they are 20 yards from the play.

What I did like, though, where several Joey-like moves where he pushed the tackle straight back into the QB or the ball carrier and blew up the play.  Holy sh!t

I have heard similar reports.  Something along the lines of it being the "ideal ACL tear".

It will be freaky to see him wearing #97.

It would not be out of the question that OSU goes undefeated this year.  I mean, Urban's only lost to three teams so far, and he gets revenge on one of them this year.

It's unfair, that's what it is. At least, that's what other fan bases will say if we are NCs.

Might we go 10-3 instead? Yes, sure.  But I'm just sayin', I wouldn't be too surprised to see us go undefeated.

And if that happens, as far as I'm concerned, Urban could retire again.  He will have earned it!  Tom Herman will be ready to come back by then!

And just so you know why I'm talkin' so crazy, I think we will be better on the OLine and the Dline this year. Like when Alabama played *ichigan to open the 2012, dominating line play will set us apart.

I thought Shugarts made it to the NFL, and Brewster was playing Center somewhere...?

It's a tough sport and he made it for a few years so hopefully he has a little bit of money put aside and he can get on with his life.  When I was 26 or 27, I certainly was in a lot worse career and money shape than he is in now.

Good luck big Mike!

yeah, you know you're old as hell when you are shootin' free throws in the driveway, and you still imitate Dave Sorenson's free throw mechanics... he used to kind of bob it up and down in front of him, then put it up and SWISH! Johnson and Johnson, baby powder soft!!!!  :-)

They do like him - and the Lions fans are kinda excited about the direction the team is taking.  I have been up here for almost 30 years so I am a Lions fan.  Wish they had taken Cardale in the 3d or 4th round.  Stafford is a "classic" NFL quarterback - big, big arm, making a big paycheck, and a big wussy who makes bad decisions under pressure.

I am planning on pulling out the OSU-Bama game tonight and watching it.  Maybe the NC game.  Point is, of the players who got any significant playing time in those games just 15 months ago, who will we still have?

JT Barrett will be back, but he didn't even play in the NC run.

Elflein and Price?  Ummm Conley? McMillan?

I mean, from the Nat Champ game to this fall, we will be almost a completely new team.  Good - I hope we are underdogs against the Sooners.  Please Sooners, don't suck this year!
