I love Matta and will always be grateful for how he has turned us into a basketball program as well, but it is time to change head coaches. Matta is a victim of his own success, as he has raised the bar so high that now all he can do is slide underneath. UCLA is one of the very best teams in the country and the list of teams they won't dominate is very short indeed, but the talent and coaching isn't there any longer. I grew up being numb to to Buckeye basketball during the Eldon Miller years and I refuse to do so any longer, and Matta is the one who taught me just how great we can be.
I moved here from Marysville in the spring of 2015. And my home is the former funeral home in which Cy Young had his, well, funeral.
Thanks for the good laugh! +1
Hooker and Hubbard sounds more like a cheesy cop show from the mid-70s.
I am 51 years old, and the following is a serious question: Are alternate uniforms that critical to recruiting? Are these kids actually basing where they will play based upon throwbacks?
Maybe not running it right up the middle on every first down would be a good place to start.
I know this has nothing to do with anything, but dear Lord I loved those Navy uniforms. Those were spectacular.
Marysville! Home of the campaign slogan "The Log Cabin", and we proudly display it coming into town! Suck it, Plain City!
Played like crap, still won by 21. It happens.
"Sparty being Sparty" was meant for when they choke and lose a game they shouldn't. A. Game. Not the entire last 2/3 of the season.
It's hard not to pick it off when you have the chance. He may have been trying to knock it down but came up with it anyway.
I'm not sure what I saw in the Rodent Bowl on Saturday. I knew that Wisconsin would have trouble running the ball, which they did. I was a bit surprised that Michigan had as much trouble as they did scoring. I don't think either team has the offensive firepower to hang with the Bucks. Even if you cut Ohio State's scoring in half, there is no way either team would put up enough points to win.
He even had to slow down the last five yards to let the pass catch up to him. That wasn't a safety picking off a pass...that was a center fielder running down a deep ball to the warning track. Amazing.
80s music was an entire decade of one hit wonders. (Still way better than the garbage produced in the 90s. Puke.) We did have mullets, crappy cars and lousy sit-coms, but at least we had real video games which required standing and awesome slang, which was at times both tubular and gnarly.
Just don't let him get in a van with Craig James. #fiveisenough
I happened to be watching his show the day that the AP crowned Ohio State the all-time best program in the history of the AP poll. I actually went and made some popcorn as I listened to every Jim Bob, Clem and Daisy Sue call in to vent their outrage.
While everyone knows that Archie is the only two time Heisman winner, most people don't realize that Pace is the only two time Lombardi winner. I am utterly convinced that if he had come back for his senior year he would have won the Heisman, along with a third Lombardi. He is hands-down the most dominate lineman, offensive or defensive, that I have ever seen.
I think he should marry a fine lass from Michigan whose last name is Hurt. That would explain it all.
