At least we are not the Browns. We always have that to fall back on.

In our first 3 picks I see 3 future starters. By not drafting OL with the first 3  picks I can only assume the Bengals have a plan to fix it and it may not include the draft.  I am not sweating it until I see Dalton running for his life again.

Thanks Seattle L. for the insight. We needed a quality speedster at WR to make the other aspects of the offense to work . With Ross and now a new high end RB- Dalton can have some breathing room to operate

My hot take;

   JT will win the Heisman, we win the NC and he gets drafted in the 6th round of the NFL draft. He will be the least talented of the OSU QBs out of the next 4 QBs currently in line for the job (including commitments). But since he is a 5th year senior, has won A LOT of games and has two, new, great offensive minds to coax him past his limitations- he will shine bright ( look up Okie QBs under Wilson- they have statues of them outside their stadium).

  I too look forward to the next QB here but we will just have to wait for the best Buckeye QB season to date to get over.

I am super surprised and loving it. The housecleaning we did with the rooster that was supposed to bring the title back to Cincy was painful but it may pay off sooner than later.

Every night to bed and about 3 days a week at least.

Flag outside the house screaming Go Bucks all the time.

Everyday on vacation. Love getting all the O H I O calls when out of state and country. Buckeye Nation is for real.

This guy is every where. I see him like a Hubbard also. Could be OLB or DE and a special team machine. Does he ever come off the field? Yes, the competition is not good but he is big,fast and making plays doing everything.

It of course gets worse the bigger the year difference is. The best Browns team from the 60's would get beat 70-0 by today's Browns. Jim Brown wouldn't get to the line of scrimmage on any carry. 

    It is not just bigger players, it's much stronger players and much faster players.  Not by a little- by a lot.

Comment 15 Jan 2017

It wouldn't be close. Take the 75' Steelers today against todays Steelers -regarless of which rules and today's team rolls to easy win.  Same results with the 75' Buckeyes against the 2016 Buckeyes.

   The size and speed difference alone is worth a 30 point spread. Then throw in the advanced O and D schemes now and it is 40-50 point spread. What I teach at the varsity HS level now versus what I was playing at the HS level in the mid 80's is night and day. Times that by 10 at the college and pro level.

  I agree that the players back then had a toughness about them that we lack at times now but you are losing 50 lbs per lineman at least and a hole lot of speed. That is a combination for disaster.

Samuel has a unique opportunity to win the Heisman next year and with a new QB guru to help fix JT's problems and a genius O Coordinator to get Samuel the ball in the open more often , he has a decent chance at a life changing award. He is gold for life if he wins a Heisman at Ohio State. That is worth rolling the dice for another year and to up his stock for next year. Yuuuugh difference in first round money and second round money.

I have thought the Colt job would be the one to get him back in the NFL. His old NFL team, Luck, Colts is disaray....  Seems like a good fit. Harbaugh can say he got *ichigan back on track with the success of this past season and be able to leave with some pride still intack. This past season was his best shot at beating the Buckeyes and win the B1G. It aint happening in the next couple years. Good time to go back to the League.

Comment 04 Dec 2016

I was at the Orange Bowl also and I thought it was closer to 70-30%. I think it will be the same or worse out there. Going that far for a game is out of their norm. I'm guessing they have played outside of the south east maybe a hand full of times in the past 20 years.

We should have all realized by now- any win against MSU no matter how ugly is a good win. Especially against a Dantonio coached MSU team. We are their super bowl ever year . 1/2 the team is from Ohio - players and coaches. We will never be able to match that fever, that level of focus that they have for us.

Finally the toughest road schedule in OSU history is over. Thank God.

I was hoping Matta would redshirt one of the incoming frosh. I thought Wesson- add strenght and put him in same class as his brother- that would make for a special senior year for them. As far as redshirting goes in D1 basketball, if we are not going to get one and done players every year (Kansas, Duke, ect) then win with experience and having a 5th year senior every season to add to the team is a good thing. 

  It is either win with a bunch of one and dones or with senior lead teams. Looks like we are going the senior rout so why not redshirt a player each season to help with the experience factor.
