    Very best moment: I was introduced to OSU football by my stepfather in 75. He took me to The Shoe, told me stories of the great Archie Griffin & I was hooked.

Quick, someone figure out a way to make this article required reading for all Buckeye teams from this point on!

Agreed!!! Not only a program that was in disarray over the head coach being shown the door just months before the season started, but also in the disarray of losing it's 5 best players! People make Fickell out to be a  horrible coach...granted he wasn't great by a long shot - but he had a number of substantial factors going against him that made him look a worse than what he was.

I haven't been able to check the site for a week - just got on today & saw this...truly heartbreaking. This man made cheer so many times... The fact that a Buckeye great was murdered is a terrible. But the fact that this cowardly, & completely senseless act has taken a father from his children forever is truly devastating & the definition of tragedy. Thoughts & prayers to his family, especially his wife who I hope & pray recovers.

Another strike against the play calling...yes, it is. But also - there was a lot of talent on that team. Maybe too much if that even makes any sense. No matter what the play calling had been - there was no way all those dudes could get all the touches they wanted or thought they should've gotten. the thing is, Jalin would've been one of the only proven commodities on this years team. He would've had a chance to truly shine. Personally, I don't see him as being being NFL ready yet, but who knows...I do wish him the best & truly hope he succeeds - but those comments sounded like there may have been a bit of entitlement to me. Hopefully my saying that isn't going to piss anyone off - just my take.

Cardale's my dude for sure! While JT won the job & rightfully so (probably should've happened sooner), I'd been rooting for Cardale since last spring to be the guy for 2015. Although it didn't work out, I do think he has some serious talent & obviously a rocket for an arm that will work much better in the NFL than it did at OSU. I mean the NC & those three games were amazing but I think once Devin was gone & there was no steady deep threat he just wasn't that well suited for the rest of OSU's offensive plan. If he learns a few things & can put some touch on his passes, someone's going to get a great QB for a steal.

Sorry for the late reply - you'll likely not see this, but I did read the Freeh Report, although that was some time ago. It was my understanding that Sandusky was allowed back into the facilities after he'd been retired & after McQueary had reported it to Paterno. If I'm mistaken, my apologies, but I would have sworn I'd read Sandusky had been on campus & in the football facilities after Paterno was informed.

Tell me where to look up that Joe Patero didn't allow Sandusky continued access to the program long after a report was made directly to him that Sandusky was seen raping a child in the lockeroom & I'll look at that information. But be careful, because what I wrote is a cold, hard fact. If you can provide links, I'll check them out, but send me to a site filled with the rantings & opinions of a biased fan or group of fans & I'll laugh. Long story short, Joe Paterno was a good football coach who placed way, WAY too much value on not damaging his football program or his own legacy. Any tarnishing of his legacy is completely validated.

Cam's good, but Philly & Ginn did very well this year & had plenty of great plays between them. Both are solid NFL WRs. That's my opinion. As to your "to disagree is to not understand football" comment, I have no time to write a soliloquy explaining how badly that mentality sucks...
