Agree to the post! Let's respect the opposing team fans as they should feel comfortable in CBUS and TOSU..
66 - Buckeyes knock him out of the game in the second quarter.
I am nervous as I believe we don't have big game experience and if we get behind we might have a hard time in a tough environment to come back against a pretty stout defense. The current feel good attitude reminds me of 2014 prior to the VT game. Similar young team but with Barrett much more prepared, yet will everyone else be as prepared in this environment. I hope I am wrong very much wrong especially since I will be at this game.
Any idea what sections the majority of Buckeye fans will be sitting in the stadium? I am driving up from Dallas and yet to buy a ticket. Prefer to sit around Buckeye fans versus a random group of Oklahoma fans.
Go Bucks, blast boomer.
Iowa fan logic - connect the dots
Iowa beat Pitt
Pitt beat Louisville
Louisville beat Kentucky
Kentucky beat Missouri
Missouri beat BYU
BYU beat UConn
UConn beat Houston
Houston beat Memphis
Memphis beat Ole Miss
Ole Miss beat Bama
Therefore IOWA is 2015 National Champs
This is why Bama has been able to reload every year. The depth they have had under Saban has allowed a lot playing time and keeping everyone fresh. The Buckeyes are clearly there with another loaded class coming in next year.
Can't wait to see an opposing RB sweeping out into the flats - pretty sure they'll get Booker'd and Hooker'd... Just saying
You bring up a good point. For instance e I picked Eddie over Zeke. Given the landscape of football and especially when Eddie played I just felt he had to do more than Zeke did. But Zeke will always be one of my all time favorites.
But my larger point is this. Will Zeke become like Beanie and Carlos due to the extraordinary talent Urban is bringing in? Will Weber be the next Zeke as Zeke was the next Hyde and Hyde was the next Beanie? We haven't seen this level or recruiting before. And to assume Zeke is less than Eddie seems illogical. Future comparisons based on expected performances of these incoming 5 stars might eventually leave out guys like Teddy and Braxton and Chris Gamble etc... it's only going to get harder in the future to pick top 5's and to that I say it's a problem I can deal with. #realworldbuckeyeproblems.
It might be easier naming five Buckeyes who didn't live up to the hype than the top 5 Buckeyes!
Speilman, Archie, Troy Smith, Pace and Eddie. Not necessarily in any order.
Heading to Norman (live in Dallas). RV probably (Rent). Should be interesting to see what tailgating is like with Sooner fans.
...And in other news a coach from Michigan is on another corporate jet flying to a camp in some obscure place wearing khakis and some random Jersey.
Thank you Urban for providing a real platform that OSU athletes can benefit from.
All I got to say is ... Troll Damn Tide
I live in Dallas.A friend of mine graduated from Houston. He never quite got the whole following football because frankly when he went to school at UH they didn't win and no one attended. Now that Houston got Herman he is stoked and followed them religiously last year. So this fall we are planning to RV it to UH/OU and then up to Norman for Buckeyes/OU. Should be a fun few weeks.
Connor Cook in Rd 2 would be a mistake. He has no more upside. He is what he is. Watson next year, RG3 this year. Don't waste a high pick on Cook, it doesn't fit the strategy...
#32 Noah Spense stud)
#65Nick Martin C ND
#76 trade or Kenneth Dixon RB
#77 trade or Jeremy Cash S
Solid and steady contributors across the board and could be effective Browns for most of their careers. Then strike it rich in next year's first and second rounds.
Agree BP -
UM has a bunch of seniors playing this year. They will be sound and hard to continually make big plays on. However OSU has so much talent coming back that could have been starters last year (WR's) and also those who got plenty of experience throughout all of last year that out experience will be slightly less than UM but our skills will still be much better (Think of Worley at LB and Booker. They sat behind Lee and Perry for two years. It is not as if they won't be ready to play. They know the schemes. I am more worried about Sparty then UM next year. Then when UM loses all that senior laden experience when we head back to the Big House in 2017 we will be by far the better team and probably projected in the top 2 in the country. That will make Jimmy 0-3 against Urban and heading back to the Shoe in 2018 staring down 0-4. The only issues I see with the team this year is if we have some lack of leadership or new guys don't gel for some reason. Also what will the dynamic be with Schiano and Fickell? That could be something different as well. I am sure I am wearing scarlet colored glasses but I do believe we are just as talented as last year without as much experience. UM is more experience but less talented and we beat them by 29 last year. Another key will be the running game. If you watched JT/Elliott last year when JT became full time starter the rush set up the pass and if that doesn't happen as well this year then we can see a less dynamic offense.
remember - according to an anonymous NFL Scout, Apple has no life skills and therefor this picture is a reflection of that. The DUDE can't even square up for a picture for god sake (sarcasm font).
What kind of Buckeye fan am I?
Let's me put it this way... My favorite Buckeyes are too many too list but I will always have the Neutron Man near the top, I am not a fire Fickell or Matta or Gene Smith contributor nor do I subscribe to the theory somebody should be fired every time things don't go as expected. Even though they don't get it, I brag to my non-Buckeye friends that I go to a thing called the skull session to hear THE OSU marching band practice for the upcoming game and STILL somehow maintain my man-card. I believe hating Meatchicken is a God given right and in someway a weird gesture of respect to the rivalry something the John Cooper era never figured out. Let me buy a ticket in the A deck, the B deck, the C deck, the D deck the south end zone or on top of the flagpole, I don't care, just let me into the stadium. I wished Hang on Sloopy was played more often than it is.
That's the Buckeye fan I am. What score does that tally up to?
God Bless the Buckeyes, God Bless America and Meatchicken still sucks!
He may be the best QB ever at OSU when all is said and done. I like his headiness and also his decision making skills. Oh he can tote the rock very nicely to keep all D's honest. I am all in on JT and maybe turns out to be the best. I that happens, the Buckeyes have a very good year in 2016!
Psychology is Urbans specialty. Maybe he is playing reverse psych on a kid from Kinthucky and it didn't resonate??? Crickets?? If Kinthucky is his front runner and he has an offer from Bama or TOSU, I don't think psychology will or has ever worked on this kid.
