Sounds like a PR move to get kids to come to TSUN. JH can say "Come to my camp and you'll be seen by a lot of coaches at one time..." Opposing coaches could counter with "You're better off going to (my) camp where you'll get coached by my coaches and not get passed around by a bunch of coaches from second tier schools; even the TSUN coaches won't get much of a look at you and are really waiting for their private camp to evaluate anyway. The big programs want to have a chance to evaluate you in depth, at their camp, so don't waste your time.

Go Navy. I went in after Vietnam was officially over for a couple of years. Definitely never felt any animosity at tOSU or pretty much anywhere else for that matter other than the occasional derogatory comment; or maybe I was just to dumb to notice more of it.

Kelly's Heros.

Anything with Rene Rouso...

Imagine a Heisman ceremony with Zeke as a RB, JT or CJ as a QB, and BM as a WR. 3 invitees and an all tOSU finals. Heads would explode everywhere.

Not McCall's fault whatsoever that he was born into this situation. And it's insanely difficult to get out of a situation like this. And that doesn't just apply to McCall. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of similar kids in similar situations.

How true, and unfortunately many of them don't have the opportunity to get out of it via sports.

Clearly, the Miller to... speculation won't stop until he suits up the first day of practice; that's what happens when the off season has slow news days. While I understand he would go somewhere he has a shot at starting, would he have a better shot somewhere besides OSU, assuming he is 100% healthy? I have no doubt he could learn a new system and would do well at a school with a good team around him. However, given that UM has been in this situation before I think he would find a way to use Miller that would let him do what he does best and still give CJ or JT significant paying time. Given BM's running skills I could see him in an H back or wideout where he is a threat to run or pass; in addition to lining up as a QB.

My question to the more football knowledgable is what role do you see BM playing in the NFL? Is there one , besides, QB where his talents would be better suited and there is less chance of injury or where his shoulder injuries would be less of a problem in the draft?

My guess is the President found it funny. He strikes me as having a sense of humor, but then he's a UChicago/B1G guy so that's to be expected.

First time I set foot in Ohio was at tOSU. Didn't realize I had family there until I found out my Grandfather was from Marion. I had never met him so it never came up. As with many converts, I may be late to the game but and now a Buckeye for life.

Don't tell that to Devon Edwards. XD

A PSU guy claiming they're our rival? That's like the ugly girl telling everyone yo really are their boyfriend; which results in everyone wondering what color the sky is in her world.

We simply disagree. Just because a team may be an obstacle, has won an occasional championship, etc. does not make them a rival. A respected opponent, perhaps, but they are always going to be less important to fans than the true rivals. I get that some PSU fans would like OSU to consider them a rival but that isn't the case. Simply having a large fan base that shows up for games doesn't a rivalry make either. We sell out our MAC games and it's a pretty intense atmosphere but no one would consider Toledo or Akron a rival simply based on that.

A rivalry is more than selling out stadiums and primetime games. It's about tradition, history, feelings, and intensity. Army Navy is a rivalry. Auburn - Bama is a rivalry. OSU - TSUN is a rivalry. OSU - PSU? Great game between good teams, but not a rivalry; we just happen to play each other every year because we are in the same division. If PSU moved to the other division no one would care that we on't play every year, as opposed to the reaction when a rumor started the OSU - TSUN would not always be the last B1G game of the year for both teams. Every OSU fan can tell you when we play TSUN, ask them when we play PSU and you're likely to get "in the fall" or "I don't know for sure" as the date.

Alabama is rivals with TN and Auburn.

If you thing the school in Tuscaloosa views their TN game like they do the Iron Bowl you are sadly mistaken. 

While we may consider PSU a worthy opponent, they are hardly a rival; TSUN is the game we live for, to be a rival the team always needs to be on your mind no matter who you play. I realize PSU needs a B1G rival since they stopped playing Pitt but OSU isn't it.

Sure, you may have 1 team that you despise over all others but that doesn't mean you can't have multiple rivals.

That's what makes a team a rival. Merely wanting to beat a school doesn't.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

True, but there's always room to review and identify areas for improvement. In the military, we did an after action report whose purpose was to identify ways to be better next time. It wasn't to cast a pall over success, but to get better and learn form our mistakes as well as what we did well. To paraphrase WT Sherman (all quotes are more believable if attributed to someone famous):

If you aren't moving forward past the enemy, the enemy is moving past you.

President Obama has a pretty good sense of humor. After he got hit in the nose during a pickup basketball game at the WH he sent a photo to the guy with a note saying he's the first person who hit the President and didn't get arrested by the Secret Service...

Comment 21 Apr 2015

how else do you explain our loss to VT this past season.  Were they really the better team?

For that game, yes. The clearly outplayed us. We may have had more talent but talent alone doesn't win games. Could we have beaten them later in the season? Maybe, but we didn't when it counts.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

Avenging a loss always feels good. It doesn't take away the pain of the loss but sure make step victory sweeter; especially if it comes during a playoff.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

I must disagree. English is a living language and as such evolves over time. How we speak today is different than how we spoke 100 years ago; no doubt someone from that era would consider today's proper English a bastardization of the language.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

Just because he does things you don't like doesn't mean he isn't a good coach or someone you can teach you a lot about coaching. So, you put up with stuff so you can learn and get the pedigree. In addition, players and coaches often have differing opinions on what is too much; sometimes players don't realize what they can do and their limits if not pushed.

Actually, he smart like a fox. I'd bet it doesn't really matter what callers say as long as they call. He's got great gig and knows how to play it for all it's worth.
