Yeah, I was gonna say, I don't think Schlichter threw a good spiral in his entire OSU career.

I remember that game, and it sucked.  Losing to Penn State 19-0. At home.  We didn't know at the time that Gerald was maybe going through some personal issues, but still... that was a tough game to watch.

I did drink a few beers in the Northberg with some PSU slappies that night. They were okay dudes.

2015 will be a huge coaching challenge.

I've been watching the Bucks long enough that I know the world won't end if they go 11-2 this year.  I mean, a surprise loss in there somewhere, and maybe Harbaugh pulls the stunner in november. Or not.  But I think what Meyer has already proved at OSU is that a bad stretch - losing the B1G Championship, losing the bowl game, and then losing to VaTech - didn't kill him, didn't stop the momentum of the program, and life will go on.

Sounds stupid, but I am sure that if we DO go 11-2 this year, next year we will probably be 15-0, just to get that ugly taste out of our mouths.  Not to mention set a record for number of victories in a year. 15!

The ONLY thing that worries me in the future 3-10 years is getting a bad apple athlete in here somehow, and it embarasses the program, Meyer and poisons other players.  In the push to be competitive and get the best athletes, I'm hoping that the coaches prove that you can do it with good people, too.

I am happy/surprised that he has had this much of an NFL career.  It may have been his coaching, but I recall an awful lot of PI calls on Chekwa, calls that (in my amateur opinion) might have been avoided if he had turned around to locate the ball.  It's just me, I'm sure.  Maybe when he was at OSU it was not a prime "Silver Bullets" team....?

Glad to see he is back with the Raiders and building that NFL retirement!!

I like this kid.  Mostly because he has very very quick feet.   And I think his shot will come around, no problem.

His defense needs to be coached up --- but with his quickness and athleticism, he has the physical tools to be a pest on D.

I think he's going to be a 14-pt average guy, maybe a steal a game. Call me crazy but let's talk after the season and we'll see if I was right!

after Lee blows up that TE, on the very next play he knocks down a pass going to the slot receiver.

1st round pick next year. He's going to make everyone forget about Troy Polammalommalama-loo

Comment 15 May 2015

But thankfully we had Zwick for the Alamo Bowl after the '05 season.  Had a groin pull and toughed it out, too. While the announcers (Corso, Herbstreit and Tirico) debated just how messed up the program was, how out of control it was and how Troy Smith had embarassed the program!  Troy Smith - the biggest loser Heisman winner ever!. 

That game must have been sweet for Zwick. It was only one game and the job went back to Troy that fall, but how many QBs get to start a bowl game for OSU and beat Les Miles???

Guiton took that stadium over all by hisself!

Comment 13 May 2015

For me, I just want to see more MUSCLE next year.  The S&C pales next to the football program, understandably, but doesn't Loving look like he's lost 15 pounds on his bench press?  Gotta have muscle and hustle.

IMHO what we will be talking about a lot is Kam Williams' incredible quickness.  It's why he ought to become a better defender as his career goes along.   Dude is  quick!

Comment 13 May 2015

If I had a gun to my head and had to pick one, probably JTB.  The turnover ratio of the last two games (granted, they were against some fine competition) makes me feel safest with Barrett starting.

I just don't know what else the coaching staff can do.

All 3 would have to get some time, in every game.  That's one paradigm you just have to buy into.

Barrett is the one that just about has to play QB on every snap.  But Cardale can play TE or FB, and Miller can play almost anywhere on offense.  That also means if indeed there were plays where all 3 were on the field at the same time, it almost has to be Barrett at QB.  How freaking crazy would that be?? (No sarcasm intended!)

Pryor to the Bengals?  Man, the Brownies are the ones who need him.  Why the hell not?

Comment 07 May 2015

Nice article... but now I'm going to try to forget I read it.  Guys, we have 10 games before MSU.  10 chances to overlook an inferior team and get beat.

think about it - all 15 teams we play will be doing their damndest to beat the Defending National Champs.

As for the need to be healthy after 10 games, this doesn't worry me, because if it's about depth on the roster, I don't think MSU or anyone else will have better 2nd and 3d string players than the Bucks.

I think William White was a little on the small side, and he had a great Buckeye and NFL career.

Comment 28 Apr 2015

and Sanzenbacher, Brian Hartline, Robiskie, Jan White, Bruce Jankowski, Mike Lanese, maybe a few more who made it to the Show...

Comment 24 Apr 2015

Great college player!  NBA level, average.  I don't question his decision, but my guess would be that he'll get 12-15 minutes a game with 5.5 points, 2 assists.

I just don't see him being a big difference maker.  Very, very very very good player, but wow, I don't know.

I think the biggest need for the team going forward is assistant coaches.  I love Matta, but we need some good assistants.  We've lost some really good coaches over the last few years.

won't be a popular opinion, but going with my gut on this

Simon Fraser University?? I have this vision in my head of 6ft 6in red haired guys stomping on worms!  Weird!

Comment 10 Apr 2015

One might guess that a grey shirt candidate would be in a position where we are fat.  like QB, running back, etc. Or, a lineman who has the frame but hasn't started shaving yet and is still filling out.
