I really like the idea of other teams fans participating in discussions on this site.  However, the discussions should be along the lines of: "I think so-and-so will win the starting job on our team", "I think our strategy will be to limit X from happening during the game", and "I think the matchup between our defensive line and your offensive line will blah blah".  

In other words, when you are a supporter of a different school stick to on the field discussion and be as unbiased as possible, if you do I will get along with you just fine.

Everyone should give Phil Knight a break. He wouldn't have commented on Russell if he had been there to scout him, and everyone knows he was really there to scout Amir Williams.

I could easily see Onwenu's growing distance from Ohio State coming from the Weber situation, but not in the way everyone is saying. Onwenu had a front row seat at how local people that have supported you your whole life turn on you when you attend a rival school. That could have easily danpered the relationship through no fault of either party.

He's probably too smart to try a bear again after we faced it so many times over the course of the year and did well everytime that wasn't Virginia Tech. I guess you just play a base defense with a wrinkle or two and pray for the best? Maybe try to disguise as much as possible to confuse us but if they try that we will just run it down their throats.

I imagine that we will see more of the adjustments that they made in the last three games. We will probably keep leaving corners unblocked, using pulling tight ends and/or tackles rather than just guards, and running to the outside when they defend the middle, and running to the inside when they defend the edges. I can't wait to see these concepts developed and expanded in the offseason. 

Our passing game will probably be very dependent on who wins the quarterback race. This is why I would like to see meaningful minutes from both Jones and Barrett to exploit different areas and make game planning impossible. If Miller really is fully recovered and can throw a deep ball or take off like the old days that's just another area we can design new way of doig the same thing.

The personnel this team has leave everything open. Elliot has both speed an power, while Samuel has speed and some power, and Weber has power and some speed. The wide receivers have enough speed to be deep threats but are getting better at running short routes and making people miss. The h-backs are adding a much more developed downfield passing game to their running back abilities. The quarterbacks are all capable passers and runners. The offensive line is large, strong, and agile  enough to block in space. Vannett is great as a blocker and a receiver.

The future is very bright.  Doran Grant will be tough to replace but we have multiple good candidates so the pass defense should absolutely be dominant. I can't wait to watch them shut down Virginia Tech.

Is this affiliated with Nike in anyway?  Because if it isn't it seems incredibly unlikely to happen, though it was already somewhat unlikely.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

I know it's unrealistic but I really wish Barrett could play in the spring game like it was a 7 on 7. Make it brutally clear to the defense that any contact with him would result in severe punishment and don't even have linemen rush. If both Jones and Barrett played it would be the most hyped spring game of all time and would be great for recruiting due to a guaranteed sell out crowd.

On January 22, 2013, the FSU Athletics Department was in contact with the Tallahassee Police and learned that Winston had been identified as the suspect in a violent sexual assault. The FSU Athletics Department called meetings involving high-ranking FSU Athletics Department and football officials, Winston, and Winston’s lawyer. On information and belief, head football coach James “Jimbo” Fisher (“Fisher”) and Senior Associate Athletics Director Frances “Monk” Bonasorte (“Bonasorte”) became aware of the rape accusations against Winston at that time. The FSU Athletics Department chose to violate school policy and not report to the FSU administration that their star recruit had been identified as the suspect in the December 7, 2012 rape investigation. This deliberate concealment of student-on-student sexual harassment to protect the football program deprived Plaintiff of her rights under Title IX and caused substantial damages, as detailed further below.

Jimbo Fisher- just as sleazy as his name sounds.

I know a lot of people hated it but my favorite Simmons movie is Burn After Reading.  His attitude in that movie was the perfect compliment to the absurdity of the events that transpired.

That money sounds good until it's Saturday night after a loss and your wife is crying because an internet troll with a rudimentary understanding of football posted a Google Earth shot and address of your house into a message board thread dedicated to your murder/unemployment.

No wonder she bakes cupcakes to reward her husband's players for making good plays.

As nice as it would have been to land one of those three defensive tackles, next year's defensive line is more likely to have the guys that are already on the roster be the ones that define our level of success than true freshman. I am confident that one of Munger, Schutt, Hill, Hale, or Sprinkle will turn into a very good starter, and another one or two will turn into a solid second string option.

Has the recruiting process played any part in your maturation?  Do you feel like being such a public figure before even enrolling in college will make it easier to handle the attention and scrutiny that will come when you are a starter at Ohio State?

Comment 17 Feb 2015

You see folks, there's nothing that is gained by replying to every tweet, Instagram post or Facebook discussion with "BUCKEYES!!" or "#BuckeyeNation"; and although Ohio State fans are certainly not alone in this endeavor, it's making zero impact on the players that are even most likely to be Buckeyes.

I'm just happy if it doesn't negatively impact the recruits.  Personally, I'd be annoyed enough for it to make me less excited about a school.

Comment 17 Feb 2015

TCU was downright respectful compared to Baylor in my opinion. I'd much rather beat the Bears than the Horned Frogs.

the United States once fought in the Veterinarian War.

They fought like cats and dogs to win that war.
