Last season at Utah State (I'm a proud Aggie alum!), star QB Chuckie Keeton went down with an ACL tear and a true freshman came in and went 6-1 the rest of the season.  But now that Chuckie is healthy for his senior year, there is no question that Chuckie is going to start.   Many say Chuckie is a dark horse Heisman candidate.  He’s good; plus people like to say “Chuckie.”

My worst Big Ten road experience was at Iowa, but I think it was just a few bad apples.  I had beer cans thrown at me pre-game and death threats from drunk rednecks during the game. They didn't say much after the Buckeyes won.

Nebraska fans were extremely nice when I went to a game out there.  They appear to be more obnoxious when they travel.

Glad to see El Guapo show some good stuff.  With Gore getting older, El Guapo could eventually be the featured back if he can stay healthy.

I do call them by their names when I speak to an individual, but I work in health care where we provide health care services for Native American reservations and the surrounding non-reservation areas.  It is necessary to differentiate Americans from Native Americans because Native Americans have their own government health care system.  Ironically, the name of the government health care system for the Native Americans is called Indian Health Services.

I work with several Native Americans as part of my job, and some of them prefer to be called Native Americans instead of Indians.  Some don’t care.  It really depends on the person.  I always take the safe road and call them Native Americans.  Of course, changing the name to the Cleveland Native Americans doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it? ;)

Braxton is an amazing athlete, but I'd like to see him get down or slide and avoid hits instead of giving up his body for a few extra yards.  I know its not the cool thing to do, but we need him healthy for the entire season.  Man, I miss Kenny G.  Its scary knowing we don't have his smooth jazz waiting to save the day.

My sister went to byu. A lot of their fans are obnoxious but they are extremely polite at games. After getting cursed at and having beer cans thrown at me at Big Ten road games, going to road game at byu is a breeze.

Not unreasonable at all. San Diego will be there the following weekend.

I live in Salt Lake City and can attest to BYU being the most hated school out here.  I am a Utah State undergrad, so I have a special place in my heart to hate BYU.  The only time I would cheer for BYU is if they play *ichigan.  Incidentally, BYU "earned" their only National Title by beating a 6-5 *ichigan team in the 1984 Holiday bowl.

I have been impressed with Hoke's recruiting classes, but I have not been impressed with what he has done with all that talent.  He doesn't seem to develop the players the way other elite coaches do.

Urban may take some heat, but at least he made the decision like a grown man and didn't hide behind a "team vote" like Les Miles did. 

Comment 04 Aug 2014

Most coaches would have given a predictable diplomatic response with a bunch of cliches about learning from mistakes. That's why I love Urban. He calls it like it is. No BS.

When most news stories about pro athletes are about signing a new contract or shoe deal, its great to see one about someone giving back.  So proud he's a Buckeye!
