I love hating TSUN.
Go Bucks, Screw the Blue
Thank you Matt.
Your 100 Teams in 100 Days blog of the last few days has put to bed any doubts I had on whether I'd rather The Game include a nationally competitive TSUN or the irrelevant teams of the Rod/Hoke years.
I really don't give a damn as long we beat them into submission every year till the end of time!
I concur and up vote your comment!
Thank you GB10 for the great post.

Yep , a gluttonous skunk weasel according to Wiki: 'The wolverine (/ˈwʊlvəriːn/), Gulo gulo (Gulo is Latin for "glutton"), also referred to as the glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or quickhatch, is the largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae (weasels). '
Thank you Urban for recruiting young men who are not only physically talented but are also of such mature character. They make us proud both on and off the field.
Thank you Tim for a wonderful article!
Spot on NorCal. Too bad I can give you only 1 UV.
Was the second fumble not a penalty as I thought I saw the kicker go helmet first into Jalin?
The problem with Adidas uniforms is that they insist on putting their three stripes logo foremost in the design.
My sentiments exactly.
On the other hand SI's Andy Staples has an interesting article regarding Bo Pelini's suggestion to do away with NSD. After reading it, I am inclined to believe that is an option worth pursuing.
Collards, did you have mention Eldon Miller. You took me back in time when we were cheering ourselves hoarse at St. Johns and so hopeful about our Buckeyes with all that talent: Kelvin Ransey, Herbie Williams, Jim Smith, Kenny Page, Carter Scott, Clark Kellog, Larry Huggins, Todd Penn, Denis Hopson, Brad Sellers and the list of talent that Eldon had available goes on and on. However, Eldon was out of his league and simply couldn't coach the talent.
I think John Porentas at TheOzone in his article: "Move by Drayton to NFL leads to questions about recruiting of Weber" sums up the situation nicely.
140 is the maximum number of characters allowed in a Tweet. Weber's tweet indicated he was hurt, but there isn't a whole lot of nuance you can pick up in a message that is limited to 140 characters. Weber's tweet could mean "I'm hurt and really mad, mad enough to go to a different school. Forget Ohio State." It could also mean "I' really like coach Drayton, and I'm hurt he's not going to be around, but I understand what's happened and I'm looking forward to my OSU career."
With what his mom wrote on her FB it looks more likely to be the latter.
IIRC, Weber had this notion that by going south to TOSU, he won't ever get job in Detroit, that was corrected by his phone call NSD eve.. If true, I can't believe Wilcher was not aware of his star RB entertaining such thoughts. Irrespective, what did Wilcher, who claims to have his players' best interest at heart, do to correct Weber's thinking? Evidently, nothing at all.
I don't expect any high school coach not to try to steer his best players to the university he played at. Particularly when that high school has been the traditional pipeline for his alma mater that is now being coached by his teammate. But, does anyone really think Wilcher would have reacted this way, and acted like a drama queen, had one of his players committed to TSUN then wrote a similar tweet after his position coach left the next day? No, Wilcher has jumped on this issue, IMHO, to 1) stem the tide of Cass Tech players going to TOSU and 2) to sway the narrative from TSUN coaches telling kids Weber's age they are not good enough to get admitted without a football scholarship and other recruiting screw-ups done by TSUN staff.
Owl, that is the wisest statement I have read on 11W!
Wow, great observation Remy.
I will wait for your great deductive reasoning to tell us.
