Long live the houndie!
And OSU's been a little lighter on number of recruits compared to some of the other programs at the top due to the sanctions. I bet the average goes down a bit if you include those 3 scholarships into the equation.
Long live the Houndie!
In all fairness, they did say that when both OSU and BM were rolling and looking like they were going to win it.
Glad to see Ross continue his hot streak, ouch on ADV's 0-7 night, and go Bucks beat Sparty!
That sailor had to think he was dead. Just incredible that he found an air pocket to survive in, the air pocket was large enough that he stayed conscious for 60 hours until rescued, and that the water was warm enough that he didn't die of hypothermia.
Here's a link that goes into a little more detail of his narrow escape with death and also talks a little big about the physics involved.
"I was very, very cold and it was black. I couldn't see anything," says Okene, staring into the middle distance.
"But I could perceive the dead bodies of my crew were nearby. I could smell them. The fish came in and began eating the bodies. I could hear the sound. It was horror."
I couldn't imagine the range of emotions he probably went through in those 60 hours. I wonder if he ever went out to sea again or if he found a new career that kept him on dry land.
Must resist temptation to DV that score . . . ohh the pain it hurts.
Glad to see the win. But ouch on the rebounding deficit. I didn't watch the game but what's up with giving up 19 offensive rebounds to the Terrapins?
Maybe Mowins can just stay silent and tweet, that would work too. Especially since I don't twitter.
From later in the actual article linked . . . .
That $200,000 in extra income is joined by one of college football’s richest rewards: A win in this weekend’s game also adds an extra year to Meyer’s contract. That deal isn’t unique within college sports – Thad Matta, Ohio State’s basketball coach, has a similar bonus clause – but Meyer’s $4 million in guaranteed salary makes it incredibly valuable. Odds are that contract year will be worth even more, because Meyer will most likely receive a raise in the next five years.
It's not like OSU wouldn't renew his contract pretty much automatically if he wanted to stay past his current contract. But the additional year is another cool 4 million.
I feel confident that OSU can get enough points on offense to win the game. The question in my mind is if OSU's defense can keep it low scoring and then I start getting nervous agian because I felt confident about the UM game.
FYI for the graphic, Philly only has 50 catches.
Awesome work, thanks!
Just curious who had the 2nd best D against the run on 3rd down and what'd they give up on average per attempt?
Just to clear up a misconception, he wasn't 'forced' to keep anyone on the Buckeye staff. He sat down and talked with Fickell and that's when he decided to retain Fickell on the staff.
About 69% of Shazier's tackles were solo tackles vs 62% for Borland.
Ryan Shazier - 123 tackles (85 solo), 22 TFL, 7 sacks, 2 passes defended, 4FF
Chris Borland - 102 tackles (64 solo), 8.5 TFL, 4 sacks, 2 passes defended, 1FF.
Clearly Borland had a better year!
We need to get a petition together to see about bringing back the houndie!
If Ohio State can score points at will or almost at will, OSU will win, plain and simple. Even if MSU can score, OSU will be favored in any shootout. OSU will be in trouble if they have trouble putting points on the board as their strength does not lie on the defensive side of the ball.
ESPN has a built in bias towards the ACC and SEC because of their contracts with them. Of course they're not going to shit in the same bowl they eat out of. Some of the broadcasters and analysts have a huge SEC bias and others (minority few) at least try to be impartial.
Yea I thought so, but the refs didn't catch it and no one in the booth _entioned it either. So I thought _aybe I was seeing things that weren't there.
It looked like Wilson _ight have been horse collared or was pulled down by his face_ask as he returned the kick. I didn't get a great look at it and they didn't go back that far in showing the replays. Whatever it was it didn't look like that tackle was a nor_al wrap up. Did anyone else see this or a_ I just i_agining things?
Way to represent Johnny!
Aw, both _y _iddle and last na_es have the forbidden letter in the_. _aybe it's ti_e I started a collection to get _y na_e legally changed.
I voted for a beatdown. I think the crowd will be at least 30-40% Buckeye fans and OSU will jump out to an early lead and take the rest of the scUM crowd out of it, negating whatever home field advantage they may have.
I kind of wish that people (national media) expected more from scUM in this game. It's almost a lose-lose-lose from the perspective of OSU's NT aspirations. IF the unthinkable happens and UM wins, well that's definitely a huge loss not just for OSU but for our national championship hopes. If UM manages to keep the score somewhat respectable, especially with a late garbage time TD or two, the national pundits will use that to talk down OSU and question their credentials for getting into the NCG. And if it's a blowout, a lot of the media members will just yawn and say that it was expected and not that impressive.
Ross, as the season winds down to a close, I reflect back on all the analysis you have provided us readers over the course of the season. I always eagerly look forward to reading your post game analysis. What's scary is that after reading your work for a couple years now, even prior to you coming over to 11W, I feel like I have a firmer grasp of how a good offense should be run vs say Al Borges or the Walrus. And I've never played a down of organized football.
