I was only 6 when Joey was a Buckeye, so it's hard for me to imagine him being faster than Teddy. I honestly haven't seen another player since who matched his on-field speed. You could actually tell when he shifted gears, it was incredible. So naturally now all of this makes me sad that I never got to see Joey.
I am Bassdropper!
I don't see UC putting up 27 at night in the Shoe, Kiel should be on his backside too often for that.
I think a UC DV'er drove through this way, anyone see 'em?
That Essien goal was absolutely sick.
I'm not a fan of Caliendo, but some of his impressions are really impressive. That was great!
That's actually just good advertising by heart.org, well played!
There's 14 SEC schools now, just like the B1G. Projections don't matter, but if you want to go there our SOS for next season comes in at #36 according to the NCAA methodology (which still matters- for now) and sbnation ranked our non-con 10th among AQ schools. That puts the Bucks ahead of: Bama, LSU, FSU, Oklahoma, Stanford, Oregon, UCLA and Baylor (and tied us with Florida). We have a very competitive schedule this year and that will likely be the trend going forward.
And on top of all that, we have no idea what the committee will do, seeing as there's never been one before.
You know who Wisconsin plays right after LSU? An FCS school, Bowling Green, and South Florida. Collectively, OSU's schedule is more challenging. We play 3 good teams in the non-con and Wisconsin plays 1.5. As Brunstar stated, Bama's SOS is awful. OSU has actually been way ahead of the curve scheduling marquee games against big schools such as Texas, USC, Va Tech, Oklahoma, et al. Those teams are certainly more impressive than the lists plenty of other Power 5 schools have played in recent memory. Everybody has at least one crap game on the schedule (usually more) and it will stay that way until there are actual requirements because: wins.
Buzz Killington fact of the day: that guy (Jeffrey Jones) actually ended up being arrested for child pornography.
They probably had Eleven in stock.
I wouldn't trade Tressel obviously, but man I wanted Pagac to get the job after Coop. I still think he would have done pretty well.
I clicked this link and ended up dusting off my twitter account to follow FauxPelini (and TFL). Internet what have you done??
My comment might have been a bit ambiguous, but I was referring to EW's own roster page.
This seems like a good place to throw this out there, but I was looking at the site's football roster recently and noticed Nick Vannett is absent!
If he's better than Stefon....wow. Too bad we can't have both.
Man, I love this site. I knew nothing about Tyler Green just a few weeks ago and now I already can't wait to see him in a Buckeye uniform. It's a good time to be a Buckeye.
All I'm going to say is if you want to watch the best soccer in the world, starting in the fall most Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons the best soccer in the world is played- the champions league. Imagine the top teams from all the FBS conferences (and most of the squads are from the AQ conferences) playing a simultaneous season along side their conference season. And it's all on fox sports one. As fun as the World Cup is, watching the elite club soccer teams face off will always be better.
I'm still salty that we had more players punished, the wolvies could easily have lost 4-5 players and they were the obvious instigators. Piss-poor officiating.
This class is going to be something special. There isn't a ton of overlap positionally or skill-wise, these guys all seem to complement each other beautifully. I don't even want to think about how fun it'll be to watch them playing alongside D'Angelo, Keita, Jasean, and Trevor Thompson because it's over a year away, and I don't think we should overlook this year's team. I think Thad's bunch is going to surprise some people. Let's just get Bragg or Ahmad and call it a class!
Sorry Jerome, I'd make this trade every day of the week and 1,244,423,459x on Sunday.
This just....doesn't happen for us. No one ever CHOOSES Cleveland. I'm riding high right now.
I think that the fact that people actually complain about having not won an NC under Thad is one of his biggest victories, actually. I'm sure RillDill would wholeheartedly disagree, yet before Thad no one cared that we didn't win much of anything on the court. Thad has created a winning culture and with that comes growing awareness, and along with that greater expectations. He may never win an NC as OSU's head coach (the tournament is an unfair, fickle beast), but that doesn't change the fact that he's the best basketball coach OSU has ever had. And someday in the future he'll be in the Hall of Fame. I still can't get over the 20-win streak that he and Mark Few are starting to make one of sport's unreachable records, and I hope Thad stays here long enough to outlast Few to take the record for himself.
So with all that in mind, I would say that I agree that Thad's greatest quality is his consistency and his ability not only to build a winning culture within what was once an afterthought program, but to sustain it.
You're absolutely right. Didn't deserve a DV.
