Devoted and fanatical follower of tOSU, Xavier (alma mater), and Philly pro sports. Born and raised in NEO, which will always be home to me no matter where I live. Hate TTUN with an unbridled (and perhaps unhealthy) passion.

Let me preface my opinion by stating I hate FSU and their players. Jimbo is a joke and the inmates are most definitely running the asylum. Having said that, despite their unimpressive play of late they have won 26 games in a row. There is no way OSU should be ranked ahead of them, given the VT loss.

I get that, but it seems like a waste of a year's eligibility to keep him under glass "In Case of Emergency." CS is a playmaker and the offense needs contributions from him, especially with Wilson down and Marshall's ball security issues.

FWIW, Farrell agreed with that take today on Twitter:

Good choice, my friend. OC is a great place; I know one of the owners. Plus you get the added bonus of drunken people watching in Wrigleyville at midnight.

Also agree on Founders All Day. Their 15-pack of cans is a GENIUS idea, and might in fact be the perfect beer to take on a boat for a day. For the VT game, I have a couple great Pipeworks bombers (Citra Ninja and Brief Relief) I've been saving for this game.

Not Hodge, but Chillwave (formerly Alchemy Hour) is excellent in my opinion.

Prediction on Bert's next job, after his invevitable demise at Arkansas (which could be as early as this year):  Kansas. He could continue their proud tradition of plus-size coaches, ably filling the large pants of greats like Mark Mangino and Charlie Weis.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

Well, his presence certainly does not hurt. And in fact, I recall multiple recruits commenting on how cool it was that he was on the sidelines during their visits.

While he alone might not be the reason that a recruit chooses OSU (and if he was, that's a really dumb reason) his presence on the sidelines adds to the overall experience. I would presume that is why UFM himself has publicly expressed a desire to see LeBron at as many games as possible.

Dude, that's Linda Cohn doing those highlights.. She's been a SportsCenter anchor for approximately 75 years. But yes, they are terrible.

Neverless, I can provide you with another 200 reasons to spark your hatred for Beth Mowins.

Comment 22 Aug 2014

They certainly are not lacking for talent in the secondary. That talent combined with effort and some good coaching should produce a markedly better product this year.

Although he has been working at safety (almost exclusively it sounds), wonder if there is any way Cam sees some time at nickel this year? Would love to get him and Bell on the field at the same time!

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Couldn't agree with this more. Oftentimes watching Braxton reminded me of watching Donovan McNabb (unfortunately for me I am a huge Eagles fan). Both are supreme athletes with God-given guns for arms. But I can't tell you how many times I saw McNabb throw a ball in the dirt or fail to hit a wide open guy in stride, reducing a potenial long gain into a 6-yard gain or resulting in an incomplete pass. We've seen the same from Brax. Give me an accurate arm like Brees or Brady any day of the week.

Also, let's not forget how many times Brax and that gun overthrew a wide open receiver deep. That throw Guiton made against Cal last year, referenced above, is a perfect example of a QB thowing a catchable ball and allowing his WR the chance to make a play. Don't get me wrong, losing Brax sucks and our O might take a step back (due more in part to the inexperience at OL  than the QB, IMO), but Meyer and Herman will continue to get these guys in space and hopefully JT4 will be able to fill that distributor role.

An embarrassment of riches to be sure. And the article doesn't even mention Jalin, Noah Brown (who might redshirt), Dixon, or hybrids like Dontre or Samuel. If the line can hold up and Braxton continues his development, the sky is the limit!
