Can 'Not Have One" be an option?

Kidding aside, I grew up in Michigan, where fan bases are obviously divided. I always thought it was awesome that Ohio only had one real 'go to' fan base; one that the majority of the state was behind.

I'm definitely starting to warm up to Ash, more than I was at first for sure. But is anyone else concerned with the amount of overlap there seems to be? Ash coaching the back half, calling plays but Fick gets veto power? Ash coaches the safeties and corners, but Coombs also coaches the corners? I mean, I get obviously that some things need to change, and I'm especially glad Coombs isn't the sole guy with DBs, but anytime you have a situation where multiple guys have the same role, it is inevitable that toes are going to get stepped on.

I guess I'm just hoping the overlap actually turns out to be the positive teamworking experience the coaches are playing it up to be.

Glad we can add another stud to our list today, but definitely interested in finding out more details about this recruitment. The whole thing just seems odd.

Regardless, welcome Darius!

Disappointing, but the kid clearly did not see himself as a Buckeye and we might be better off not having him, especially considering the circus here the past few days. Best of luck to him.

I don't think it's too hard to understand why Nussmeier made the lateral move. Hoke gets one more year, proves he's the problem, and bada-bing, Nussmeier's the new head coach. Saban's clearly not going anywhere, so he's putting himself in position to take over at scUM.

Mack Brown to Penn State? Anyone want to try that on for size?

Comment 31 Dec 2013

In Case McCoy's defense, I'm not sure any of his receivers had actually ever seen a football before last night's game, let alone catch one.

Comment 20 Dec 2013

While I agree that it is creepy to tweet at random high school kids none of us know, these kids frequently invite the attention. Seriously, a recruit tweets publicly 'boomer sooner!' and the NCAA expects OU fans not to react? 

Beyond the creepiness, I don't see the problem with average citizens interacting with recruits on social media, especially when they have public accounts. Boosters, coaches, etc., that's another issue.

135 years of tradition and excellence. 40 million youtube views on just 3 of literally thousands of videos. Dozens of albums. 77 years of Script Ohio. 1984 Sudler Trophy winner. The largest all brass and percussion band in the world.

While I agree that Dierks Bentley is no country music n00b, the numbers don't really compare.  

Comment 09 Dec 2013

I get what you're saying, but the athletic department won't want to pay for them to go down and not perform. It's hundreds of thousands of dollars for the band to travel, even on short trips. Plus the band wants to perform. 4 minutes is better than nothing.

It's not something only our band is subjected to. This happens to every group who gets an Orange Bowl bid.

Comment 09 Dec 2013

Yes, the bands still attend and are given a short amount of pregame performance time. I'm sure they will have a great time in Miami and represent OSU well. Just not the fitting end they arguably deserve after such a phenomenal season. 

Comment 09 Dec 2013

X-row 07-09 here. I'm sure the group is happy to get to make the trip and the 80 degree weather is a huge perk for sure. Definitely beats not going to a bowl game.

Still unfortunate that this is how the chips fell. 

Comment 09 Dec 2013

Except they don't. There pretty much could not be a worse bowl draw for The Best Damn Band in the Land, as the Orange Bowl does not permit marching bands to perform halftime, and instead we will be forced to watch Dierks Bentley. 

TBDBITL gets four minutes at pregame. Barely enough time for double Script Ohio. That's it. Such a shame. The Orange Bowl is the only BCS bowl that doesn't showcase marching bands, and when you have the best band in the country, coming off a phenomenal year of performances and recognition, that really, really sucks.

Comment 09 Dec 2013

Also, can we acknowledge the sheer number of TV time outs that happened during this game? It was ludicrous. It kept both teams from truly building momentum and it affected the crowd.
