This was a bucket of cold water in the face. I expected a different team this year. Out of words.....
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.
That had to be a miss print. 84-8 in big school state championship?!!? How is that possible?
Congrats to "Detroit Diesel". What a fitting end to The Game....our frosh blowing their super star out of the play.
I am beginning to think they enjoy all this butt hurt ....which makes them.....
Old school facial. Nice job Shelly!
Urban Meyer just rips Hairball's heart out with a smile on his face. Haha
Wow wow wow!!! Biggest heartbreak ever delivered to *ichigan ever. When are they ever going to have 43 seniors and we have 44 freshmen again?!?!
Finally, the Buckeyes toughest road schedule ever is over. Thank God.
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.
Love it. Love that they remembered last year and mocked them.
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.
Only 4 teams in a D1 college playoff makes no sense. Yes, it is better than the shams we had previously but far from adequate from a legitimate way to find the best team in major college football.
MLB has 32 teams and 8 get in the playoffs
NFL has 32 and 12 get in the playoffs
D1 basketball has 300 teams? and 64 get in
D1 football has 132? teams and 4 get in!?!?
It is still the most backward sports organiation in the world.
Oklahoma and Nebraska are all time College football powers. I wonder if any team had ever beat them like we have in the same season to the degree the Buckeyes did.
Not a fan of Friday night game at all! Good idea for the lesser teams not for a top tier team like OSU.
Any chance Emery Jones plays QB this week or next. I am looking to drive down to see him play.
Oh, heck yea! Get him over here this afternoon. Another former coach to help out is very smart business. He was awesome at Kent State HC. Don't know what happened in West Lafayette but I hope we pick him up ASAP.
I like everything I am hearing from coach Matta and the players. Talk about the elephant in the room is the first step in changing what happened last season.
Very classy letter, Danny. Hate to see you go elsewhere. After I saw Cardale struggle last year I had serious reservations that Urban's offense could change for a pro style QB. IMHO Urban liked what Cardale added to the O during the playoff and thought he could make that a permanent change in his O. We saw how that went.
Best of luck to Danny!
Please send stu10 to a far away place that we never have to hear from him again.
We cheer for the player and the person. Hilliard is young and will get the Mariotti treatment like Lattimore did with his hamstrings and comeback stronger and hungrier than ever!
I have been to a good number of away games but the Oklahoma fans were hands down the nicest fans I had ever encountered by a large margin. Knowledgeable and very hospitable. I exchanged numbers with one couple and promised to show them around Buckeye Nation if they make the trip next year.
I couldn't tell you how many people came up and shakes my hand and asked how we were doing. Amazing.
I was expecting much different- Brian Bosworth like crazy people and I was totally wrong.
I got to be apart of the O H I O around the stadium tonight and the OU fans around me were in disbelief and disgust.
I am here in Norman. Ate at Cattleman's yesterday, went to Memorial. Need game day hot spots.
Thank you for a job very well done. I read almost every year and enjoyed learning more about our history.
Interesting theory. I would like to see the average eligibility of the 22 starters for NC teams the past 5 years. Anyone have some extra time on their hands?
