"National Championship caliber, proven coaches"

Kelly is automatically disqualified,  but I like the train of thought. You bird.

What does Ohio State have that  Note Dame doesn't? 

A win over the other team in the last 80 years

Comment 24 Sep 2016

It would probably not be a record because the SEC has a continuous loop of 6-8 teams in the top 25 at any given point of the season.  It's possible  probable to have all of their conference games to be against the top 25, including the CC game, plus playoff games. Don't get me wrong, it would be impressive if any team would beat 8 ranked teams in one season, just the SEC gets overhyped year in and year out.

I'm just looking forward to NOT reading tomorrow about what some stupid things the players did after facing the dreaded Bye today.

Comment 24 Sep 2016

In the first gif/jif the DE #85 for Sparty should have had the tackle for loss with a nice inside move, but the OT #71 for ND held and tackled him. The clip cut off so I couldn't see if flag was thrown. I hope there was because that was atrocious.

After watching that video in slow motion I think I noticed something I haven't before. Brown catches the ball first with his right hand then makes sure the ball doesn't move with his left as he is going down. It appears to mee his right fist is closed. Like he went to grab the ball but closed his fingers too quick (pun intended), and just caught the ball literally pinning the ball against the defender. 

Anybody else see this at all? That just may make the catch even greater, which I didn't think could happen. 

Edit: look at about the 1:50 to 1:55 clip and pay attention to his right hand.

Gotta pay for Skip Bayless's rediculus contract somehow. 

Comment 20 Sep 2016

The only thing that can get in the way of this young Buckeye squad is themselves.  If they become contempt with what they have already accomplished because they have already "arrived" then the team could slip up easily.  Hopefully the team does not see or pay much attention to praise of this sort. The sky is the limit for this team if focused. 

I feel like I'm being a Debbie Downer with this post.

Thanks for the video BRB as I do not watch that network much anymore. As others have stated already, SVP is one of the bright spots over there.

No only did Tre have a one handed catch that was behind the defensive guy's back, but he threw in a summersault just cause.

Comment 20 Sep 2016

I had a great view of that catch.  I somehow lucked into tickets at the 15 yard line in the last row of AA on the visitors side for that game. I believe he was a sophomore that year and I thought he would be the next great Buckeye wideout. He had a good carrier at OSU, just not as good as I was thinking he would have after that catch.

After pondering it I think Peppers would be a H back at OSU. I don't think he would be a good fit on defense because he's too rigid to cover at a DB spot and his frame is too small to be effective at LB. He has good hands, speed and enough wiggle to be a good H back for Buckeyes roster. The only question is if he can run between the tackles well. The bad news for him is he would be riding the pine until Samuel needs a breather.

Comment 19 Sep 2016

The reason Peppers wears all of those hats for TTUN is need. He is their most versatile player and the best option at many positions.  OSU has many players that could play a tone of positions. Lattimore, Hooker, EGW, pretty much the whole secondary could play WR, H back, or be a return man. Baker could play at RB, Brown could be a LB or safety, Samuel or Campbell could play safety or CB respectively and return kicks. I could go on. The point is Urban has recuted athletic players that excel at multiple positions in multiple sports in HS that could do the same in College. Those players do not play on both offense and defense at OSU because, 1) we are good enough and deep enough at all those positions so one guy doesn't need to carry the team, 2) the talent on the Buckeyes is so great that if you are splitting time between offense and defense, you are going to get beat out by someone who is dedicated to that position. OSU hasn't always been this talanted, back in 2012 we had to have a fullback bail us out at the LB position, and in 2002 we had to have a WR play CB and return punts. We are spoiled with the talent UFM and company have recruited to the current team. 

TL;DR the good guys have a whole team of Peppers
