Comment 16 Oct 2014

We also opened up the 2010 season on Thursday and destroyed Marshall in the process.

Edit: My bad - didn't read all of the comments above before posting, which had already pointed this out.

Comment 13 Oct 2014

I really love the confidence this team is gaining, but I think we need to be very careful not to get overconfident.  I have to be honest, the fact that Miami put the numbers they did up against Cincy last Saturday with that mediocre offense of theirs (and with only a "dozen" people in the stands) makes me afraid that we may not be improving as much as we think.  The game against Maryland did somewhat convince me that we have improved significantly since VT, but I guess I won't be fully convinced until we lay the smack-down on MSU in a few weeks.  However until then, I am going to remain in "cautiously optimistic" mode.

If JT Barrett runs the table, leads us to the playoffs, and wins the Heisman, I think a spot might have to open up for the H-back position.  Can you imagine having Braxton at the H-back position and Barrett at QB?  That would be a scary.

Speaking of Noah, has anyone heard anything about his long-term status as a Buckeye?  I know they said he was trying to appeal the Big Ten rule, but I haven't heard anything since?

Comment 24 Sep 2014

I was also at the '05 Texas game and this game is second on my list.  The '02 PSU game was hands down the loudest I have ever heard the stadium - especially when Gamble returned that INT for a touchdown.

Comment 22 Sep 2014

Coming from someone whose siblings both have suffered from severe drug addiction, this is definitely something that, once addicted, becomes a mental illness.  Hats off to Spence for admitting to have a problem and getting help - this is the first step to a successful recovery.  And I also believe that drug addicts should get another chance once they admit they have a problem - however if they fail to recover after this, then unfortunately you have to throw them out to the street, because it's the only way for them to hit rock bottom.  Hopefully he can recover and pull through this tough time in his life, if he does he will have a bright future ahead of him!

You know, although I never think it will happen and how much I would really hate it if Tressel did take the job - can you imagine the magnitude at which this would renew the OSU/UM rivarly? 

Comment 28 Aug 2014

I know this doesn't always amount to anything, but it is still interesting to note:  

JT Barrett was in the same high school class as Kenny Hill - both were from Texas - and JT was rated significantly higher as a recruit.  

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Although from a slightly different time-frame (2002), I only achieved a 22 on my ACT and still got into OSU engineering school.  Important to note that I was out-of-state and both of my parents were alumni, which did help my case.  Might I add that I am a Magna Cum Laude graduate with M.S. degree and an excellent paying engineering job.  In other words, don't let a stupid test get your hopes up.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

I agree that it is of relatively little importance as far as success goes.  But I do still find it interesting that OSU hasn't produced a great NFL QB over the years.  Maybe I am spoiled, but it would be awesome to someday see an OSU QB do great things in the NFL.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

Point well taken.  I guess I was biasing the comment more towards QBs that are "expected" to be great in the NFL, even though this may be a dumb way of thinking.  And even though your point is valid, I am still surprised that there hasn't been at least one great NFL QB from OSU.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

You are right, consistently was too strong of a word.  And although TP has shown signs of promise, he hasn't necessarily been great in the NFL (yet).

Comment 08 Aug 2014

I agree - I think he is going to have a breakout season this year.  With all the praise the younger players are getting right now, I sometimes wonder if Urban is diverting attention away from him intentionally to keep him under the radar.
