Its hard to say things are coming together when we have no post solution. I happen to like the players we have but the lineup and style of play just dont feel right.
I have an iPad and a Kindle Fire. Both hold their charges for much much longer than an hour.
That's the Magic Number
Yes it is

Zwick was beat out by a man that turned out to be a legend at Ohio State. Amir has had every chance to make his mark and not done so. It is not a valid comparison.
If I were Braxton Miller I would wait to see how my shoulder heals by Fall camp and then make a decision from there.
I live in Texas....
For the most part everyone was cheering for us against Alabama. When we played Oregon there were a lot of people that wanted Oregon to win but honestly there was not much emotion one way or the other. One note, living in Austin there were quite a few people hoping JT Barrett would transfer and become a Longhorn. There was always a group that was disappointed that Mack Brown never offered JT.
It will be Samuel because he is more dynamic but I would like to see Dunn get his shot.
To be fair about Jeff Pearlman... He did later sent this out:

I want to say something. My Tweet, after Ohio State win, was bullshit. Stupid, impulsive, made no sense. Apologies if offended. Bad moment.
I need an "upvote all" button for this thread!
WHooo Ohio State has won all of the CFP championships!
I reserve the right to continue freaking out but I am glad you found your lucky shirt.
Meh, why should I care what some TCU fans think.
Actually, Ohio State played in the Sugar Bowl last week. Oregon and Florida State were the teams to play in the Rose Bowl.
Sorry I had to :)
LOL, first it was Harbaugh will never leave the NFL for college. TTUN wont pay enough. Then it was he wont want to deal with the recruiting grind. Now it is he just came back until the right NFL job opens.
I suspect Harbaugh will get things turned around in relatively short order. There is quite a bit of undeveloped talent on that roster. On offense, the wildcard will be QB. I don't know if they have an answer at QB on his roster.
Out of curiousity... how many DTs does the staff want on the team? I don't mean in this class but overall.
I don't feel that now. I am as close to utter peace and certainty regarding an Ohio State team as I have ever been.
I am to but for wildly different reasons. It has nothing to do with predictions for or the result of the Sugar Bowl. I am just flat out proud of this team. This team has overcome so much to get where they are. I agree with what you said about how a loss would be perceived nationally but for once I don't care.
I feel a bit like I did before the '09 Rose Bowl. That team had such a big turnaround. I expected to lose to Oregon but I knew our team was better than its national reputation. The same team that looked so bad against Purdue had done a complete 180.
It is reasonable to expect the players to be focused on winning a championship but for us as fans... It is OK to take a step back and recognize how far the team has come.
As much as I hate to say it, I would probably have Winston number 1 as well. Cant stand hearing about the guy... Dont think he belongs on the field but he is undeniably a great QB for the 'Noles.
Earle Bruce was also fired from Ohio State yet still associates himself with the program. Ditto Woody, Ditto Cooper....
Edit: I have no idea how Saban feels about Bruce or Ohio State but it is a business and most coaches accept that getting fired comes with the territory.
Great Skully today. I feel like I want to comment on everything.
Regarding the first article… I remember an interview with Chris Spielman six or seven years ago where someone asked him if Tress could make it in the NFL. Spiels said he thought so in part because of Tressel’s administrative skills. I am guessing that is an overlooked aspect of all of the great coaches.
Regarding the second article… Regarding Luke Fickell and Pitt. This was no surprise. Luke also interviewed there back when Chryst was hired. I would like to see Luke succeed but it seems he is always the bridesmaid but never the bride (Meaning he seems to be a finalist often but never quite lands the HC spot).
Regarding Earle Bruce… Was Earle the Bo Pelini of his era? Didn’t really get along with his administration. Good coach but couldn’t quite get over the hump in terms of wins and losses. Remember Earle went 9-3 basically every year.
Or maybe that hit he put on the IU player.
Actually they should care. Or at least the people that do the scheduling. Ohio State had three chances to make an impression this year in OOC play.
Marquette - They played OSU without their center and had no one over 6'6" available that night
Louisville - Did not go well
UNC - Did not go well
I was a season ticket holder when I lived in Columbus. Attendance and atmosphere were poor for most of the OOC games because of all the cupcakes. Our schedule was giving people diabetes. At this point, we know Ohio State can beat up on the cupcakes.
Well said. I agree that this year's team has a higher ceiling. Its nice having three different scoring options. I am really becoming a fan of Loving.
Personally, I believe the only active role fans should play in recruiting is to make sure all Buckeye games have a good atmosphere. Maybe a secondary role would be to keep the online crazy in check when things dont go well. All of that is just my opinion though.
Next season will be an entirely different post game. We replace Williams, McDonald, and Lee with Gidden's, Thompson, and Bell. Honestly, I don't know how effective any of them will be in their first year on the floor as Buckeyes but still we have some new blood working in.
Nice to see Nathan WIlliams name in there.
