Sequoia, good work. I am sorry some readers on here are missing the point. The SEC is average to bad when playing outside their backyard. This can not be denied. Stats do not lie and they do everything in their power to avoid leaving their comfort zone.

Doesn't Vegas give 7-10 points for far away travel? There is a reason for that. It is one of the most difficult things to do in football- travel long distance to a different climate and win. 

If the Buckeyes played their bowl games in Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, NYC and Philly I am sure they would have about 5 more National Championships. That is just going back to 1970.

Cleveberg is the most correct. We are in a golden age, so enjoy the moment we are in regardless of how long it last. The view from on top of this mountain is great, I hope it last for 10 years. But, ask Bama fans how short that stay can be.

This has the makings of one of the all time great college offenses. This is coming from a guy almost 50 years old who saw Nebraska put 35 points on some teams in one quarterback in the 80s and 90s.

 3 players that have rushed for 1,000 yards in a season on the field at the same time.

2 of the best passing QBs in the country.

4 out 5 O lineman back from a group that rapped and pillaged 3 of the best teams in the country last year.

WRs coming out of the wood work that any team in the country would die for.

I will be driving to Jersey from Ohio to see the game and see family ( Long Branch). I will be responsible for 3 very loud Buckeye jersey wearing wild men that I am bringing. I warned my NJ family that they are about to be taken over by Buckeye Nation. I don't think they realize there is any other football other than the NFL.

Both of these guys may be among the top 5 to 6 QBs ever at OSU. Urban is not your ordinary HOF coach. He is a creative, offensive genius and I believe will use this unique opportunity to design an offensive scheme which we have never seen before. He did it at BG with much less talented players. Get ready for a full blown offensive juggernaut that stretches the field sideline to sideline. I would be shocked if either of these QBs gets less than 30% of the snaps.

  Urban sees these two as weapons of mass destruction and wants every team they face to fear them both.

I always wear my Buckeye gear while out of state and this year while on vacation in SC - not a peep out of the knuckle dragging sec gang. Too much fun.

Matta still has what it takes to bring in top studs! Congrats Caleb!

Schools that will never, ever, ever get into the B1G;  WV & PITT (Penn St. and OSU would nix this) Syracuse (Penn St. says no), Cincy (OSU says no)  Kentucky & Louisville (lack of academics). 

  I thought Mizzou would be brought in during the next round of expansion but maybe Nebraska has stiff armed them.

  This whole discussion can be answered by G. Gee's speech that got him ousted at Ohio State. He laid out the whole game plan.

  Virginia, NC and GT are next. B1G will try ND and Texas again after they gut the ACC.

Born in N.J. but raised in West Lafayette also (RHS class of '86).  I remember our gym teacher putting anyone with a Buckeye shirt on at the head of the line for lunch and anyone wearing a blue shirt at the end of the line. That's the way you raise a good, honest Buckeye. 

Comment 19 Apr 2015

I personally brought 2 nephews (about 28 years old) and their 5 sons (ages from 7 to 10 ), to the Spring Game yesterday. It was the first time for any of them in the Shoe. They were blown away by the experience - two of the boys got to high five Zeke before the game. There is a chance that none of them (though devote Buckeye fans that wear lots of Buckeye gear) would ever attempt to go to a regular season game because of cost.

   The group spent very little ( hour and 15 minute drive each way) to have a great Buckeye experience. Ohio State did a great job to keep it exciting especially for the young fans.

Job security and competition for the 22 starting positions is important. For the positions that are "locks", those players have to wipe last year out of their minds and find another reason to feel slighted by the media, fans, opponents , ect. to get that edge back. Having VT the first game at Blacksburg will help tremendously. Nothing like feeling like the world is against you to get the competitive juices flowing. I don't see too many Hokie fans selling their tickets so this will not be your typical Buckeye road game where we out number the home fans. 

  It will be loud and in your face for our boys the first game.

On the one hand I want to enjoy the national attention this QB race is going to generate- college football has never seen 3 QBs this celebrated on the same team EVER! Maybe not even 2 QBs this famous on the same team. On the other hand, the team takes on the persona of their QB and they need to know who that will be. 

   This may be Urban's toughest coaching decision of his career. Let's hope that Braxton falls in love with catching the ball and makes this a 2 QB race. Braxton could make a lot of $ in the NFL as a 4.3 40 playmaker.

The redshirt year will do wonders for him as he gets aquainted with college life,classes,weight room,ect.  The extra year will pay off big time for him and the Bucks.
