Grew up in the subs north of Columbus and remember throwing tantrums when 8 years old and Woody's Buckeyes would lose. Now living in Italy and started reading Eleven Warriors on a daily basis after Coach Meyer was hired.

Relax everyone, Urban Meyer knows what he's doing. Do you not think that Urban is very disappointed with the defense? He's a perfectionist and he will make the necessary changes, whatever is best. He's 24-0 so far so I don't think anyone can bitch and moan too much. I have to catch myself sometimes because I find this defense very inept but I have to think with logic and reason and not allow my emotions to take over.  Take a deep breath and savor the win. GO BUCKS!!!

I was just looking at some of the RPI rankings and noticed that Ohio State is #49 for SOS. How is this possible if the B1G is the most difficult league and OSU has played both Duke and Kansas. Can someone please explain this to me?

So the Silver Bullets didn't lose a single game despite having Ryan Shazier, a career fullback and a guy who broke his leg in week six as its linebacking corps against Wisconsin and Michigan.

I think you mean Zach Boren...not Ryan Shazier. Just an FYI

Good stuff Ramzy.

I like your idea about dumping the NCAA but it all comes down to money with the TV markets. Just follow the money. Both schools are very good academically as well and members of the AAU.

I'm pretty sure Delaney has done his homework with number crunching and viable studies on this. He's been genius so far and I don't think that's changed.

I'm kind of tired of hearing all the would'a could'a should'as out there. The fact of the matter is Ohio State rolled the dice with the bowl ban and came out with a one year ban. I believe among others that the universities should not self impose penalties. Leave it to the NCAA to punish and that way you get the least amount of punishment possible. The NCAA needs to feel like it is cracking down on you and will always increase the punishment...especially on high profile cases.

I'm guessing you mean Heacock and not Heathcote. Basketball schemes probably wouldn't help this defense too much.

Comment 08 Oct 2012

I think that is an amazing stat. 272-0-1 all-time when scoring 35 or more points. That's impressive and is there another school that compares to that? If this is not a testament to being a defense oriented team over its history...then I don't know what is.

I find it difficult to believe how many people making comments act like they know better than coach Meyer and yet they don't know 10% of the information that he has. He interviewed both families and made a decision on all the information he had which is a ton more than anybody making a comment on this page. This attitude that you know better than anyone else is ludicrous.

Comment 17 Aug 2012

Come on Ramzy...If you know anything about how the NCAA works and hands out penalties, you know it would have added an additional year bowl ban because it wants to be seen as the heavy hand that is in full control. I think the best way to deal with the NCAA$ is to let them hand down the punishment by saying they know best on what the punishment should be....so we defer. If you don't agree, then please show me an example where I'm wrong.

I find it interesting that most don't recognize or at least refer to the fact that Luke Fickell was moved up to HC with his hands tied behind his back. He never got a fair chance to be a real HC because he didn't have his OWN assistansts working for him. I doubt Meyer could have had a better record last year with the assistants that Luke had to work with and overcome.
