    But the best moment: I was introduced to OSU football by my stepfather in 75. He took me to The Shoe, apparently Archie and company had just come off the field after a practice. I haven't been sane...or the same since..

Absolutely he has a lot to do with it. He's co-offensive coordinator. He has had a positive impact no-doubt. 

Comment 14 Sep 2014

One thing that has been disturbing but seemed to get much better as this game went on was the dropped passes by a number of OSU receivers. That was a huge problem with VT. JT's interception isn't even remotely on him as it bounced off Thomas's numbers. Hopefully those guys can make the easy catches they're supposed to make as the season moves on - as a few dropped passes could make a monstrous difference in a close game down the line . And there will be some close games.

What's really frustrating is VT was obviously very beatable. Seems like the staff was a little scared to open up the offense with JT's level of experience & VT had a good plan for the schemes they thought were coming. That and, well...O-Line. I truly believe that if they played the VT game with the sort of confidence, play calling, execution & ability they displayed yesterday (I know, inferior competition) then they handily beat VT & none of this poll stuff is an issue. Oh well, spilt milk. Woulda, shoulda, coulda...didn't. I like what I saw yesterday (I know, inferior competition) & now think the talent is there, JT has loads of potential, and OSU is not out of the big picture just yet. Hoping they can keep winning & things sort themselves out.

Agreed. Dontre looks good but Marshall looked better in his few returns. Dontre has the ability to break out on one, but seems his vision leads him the wrong way often. Marshall seemed a little more comfortable for sure.

That's exactly how I & many others (I imagine) feel. 8 is probably fair, but not as it relates to the teams you just mentioned. Also, Bassdropper makes some great points above with the numbers he provided. This was likely something that was going to happen (OSU dropping) after Braxton got hurt, but it is still odd that Bama & FSU didn't move after pretty close calls with unranked teams. Funny thing is, watching TV all weekend after the game, I heard loads of people (talking head types) saying OSU has serious concerns. I heard little regarding concerns over Bama, and only slightly more regarding FSU. Not a big conspiracy guy, but it is all a bit strange. Oh well. Win the games & all's well.

Me too. Actually, I'm no Miami fan, but I like their helmets as well.
