Personally, I think showing clips of the team losing at the beginning, often in black and white, is over done and unappealing.  This video avoids that cliche.  Partially because of that, I liked this video.  It also was a cut above the typical windows movie maker hype videos from a production standpoint.  

Thank you for sharing.

I enjoyed Quick Bits long before I created my account here. Thanks for everything.

And here I was clicking on this thread because I thought it was going to be a lively debate about the merits of sock puppets.

It may sound strange but whoever takes over the job for Braxton may have a very good shot at the Heisman their first year. Manziel and Winston both benefited greatly from being unknown to the general public but having very talented offensive skill players already in place when they took the reins. We will lose only Spencer and D. Smith from our wide receiver group. Those two have started and contributed but both have left something to be desired, particularly at the end of the season. However, the future does appear bright for the rest of the receivers. Experienced, talented receivers make a good quarterback look great. Imagine a Buckeye quarterback throwing the ball up for a Mike Evans type receiver who goes and gets it over defenders like how Manziel was privileged to have benefitted.  Elliot will be back and likely will only be improving as a second year starter. More of Meyer's skill positions will be getting great yards after the catch which inflates the passing stats. The line will have to plug a hole or two but should be less of a question mark than this year. In summary, I believe that the next quarterback, if competent, may appear flashier than they are, and not be burdened by expectations which hinder a Heisman campaign.

I just had a flashback to April reading this.

I heard this earlier and felt a little guilty about being happy about a player's injury, but this will give Hyde a chance to explode in the NFL which makes me very excited.

Letting a phenomenal recruit from Gahanna like Cooper go would be a shame and a loss for Ohio State. I would love to see him on the opposite side of the defensive line as Nick Bosa.

Say what you will about Gibson's ability to throw the ball, but it is pretty clear from the unabating smile that he is a very positive person who may be a great teammate if nothing else.  Someday he may consider himself lucky for experiencing the humbling events that are still not clear to the public, but supposedly caused some schools to back off of him as a recruit.  Personally, I've learned a great deal more from bad moments than good ones.  I think the same may have happened for Mr. Gibson.

Cass Tech (Mich.) product Joshua Alabi is an intriguing prospect, but the Buckeyes face long odds in his recruitment. Although he lists Ohio State among his top schools, Michigan State and Tennessee have separated themselves from the field.

From Jordan's article

It is fun to guess, but even the experts don't really know so the chances that we get it right are very slim.

Did Sweat get a twitter or is this another fake?  If it is a fake, Harris probably knows and is just messing with people. 

Comment 22 Jul 2014

Maryland is a passing offense earlier in the year, Minnesota is a running offense later in the year.  I'm more concerned with our passing defense than our running defense, particularly at the beginning of the year.

Yeah, but to be fair hurdles are a lot shorter relatively when you're 6'4". They're more like cricket arches at that point.
