Houston has gotten some serious headlines this season. Most fans won't watch any of their games besides vs. OU (and maybe Louisville, though I'm skeptical of UL's longevity). But, Houston v. OSU is a helluva narrative. Master v. prodigy. Stoop killer v. stoop killer. Evil genius v. actual genius. I'd be stoked for it.

Looks like a dumpster fire out west. That said, good on the coach for not throwing the kid under the bus for hitting him (if that's actually true). Nothing would alienate what's left of his team more than blaming a freshman.

I think the way we will see Samuel deployed on Saturday will be as the pitch man in the option game. I can only remember one or two speed option plays from the first two games; remember, the option game is one of JT's greatest strengths.

Buckeyes gonna prove something tomorrow.

I know everyone is tired of this story and I agree. I'm sick of hearing about it.

That said, I think the court and the commissioner came to the right conclusion. There are a whole host of boring legal reasons for the court, but I'm more interested in the commish.

-Brady (or someone in the Patriot's organization) intentionally and with knowledge, created an illegal advantage for his team. That's cheating.

-The league office inserts itself into a lot of discipline issues that are questionable. It is arguable that the NFL should not punish its players for off the field transgressions. It is NOT arguable that the league office has a duty to maintain competitive integrity. Cheating is absolutely the duty of the league office to investigate and punish. That's exactly what they did.

-Brady went to *ichigan and fuck them

Comment 12 Apr 2016

@AwlinBrutus has a fair point that applies to 90% of student athletes. Most student athletes get a great deal. Even with football players; there are 85 scholarship players. I consider myself a fanatic, and I can name 20 players at most. Those nameless players are not the ones speaking out.

What I think is wrong is that some local car dealership can't throw JT Barrett a couple grand to smile on camera for their commercial. Or why he can't go to the mall one afternoon and sign autographs for $5 apiece.

The reality is, most schools cannot afford to pay athletes and college athletics as we know them would cease to exist if athletes were paid by the schools. But private companies can certainly pick up the slack.

Just my two cents.

I understand the sentiment here, but I strongly disagree. I have nothing but respect for defense attorneys. Our justice system requires that everyone be entitled to a competent defense. It is not an enviable position to defend someone whom you know in your heart of hearts is a murderer. It is not glorious work, but it is important work. Don't equate the actions of the lawyer with the actions of the client.

Go Bucks.

My team was lucky enough to play the OSU managers last year in IM Basketball. They played in the B league. They won our division (and beat us by 8pts). They were great shooters; you could tell they spent a lot of time in the gym putting up shots. Hazards of the trade I guess. They didn't do much besides shoot the 3, but when the shots are falling, you can't knock em for it. Plus they all looked fresh as hell with the officially licensed OSU gear.

Ohio State intramural basketball is the best IM competition in the country. The pickup basketball culture is STRONG. Go bucks.

Maybe micheal Jordan could suit up for the Cavs tonight. Put some warriors players on the FLOOR.

If it is determined to be as egregious an error as you think, they will be punished. They probably will not be assigned to a game of that magnitude again anytime soon. 

What you're looking for is not justice, it is revenge. What did they do that was so awful they should be fined? The call, especially when seen through scarlet colored glasses, was probably incorrect. But I will not stand idly by while you spew ignorant internet hate just because our team ended up on the wrong side of one call, even if it was an important one. 

They made a bad call. That does not make them bad people. 

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Give me a break CTBuckeye. They're just doing their jobs. College refs aren't paid that well. Take the win and shut your mouth about the officials. 

You can attack the call, but don't attack the man. 

As a longtime referee, this has always been a pet peeve of mine. It's easy to be an armchair critic. 

Comment 14 Oct 2014

I'm wondering how these numbers compare to other head coaches records after bye weeks. I imagine most teams play better after a bye. But how much better do urban meyer coached teams play vs. the average? 

Always want some perspective when we see sweet stats. 

Comment 25 Aug 2014

Agree with underdog comment. Last season was stressful; we were focused on impressing voters, winning games by a huge margin. 

This year, I don't give a damn if we win by 1 or 100. Put a tally in the W column and move on. 

gut wrenching injury for Braxton. I can't imagine what he's going through right now. After all he's done for us, this injury is nothing short of tragic. Let's win for brax.
