Bruce Hooley got a lot of hate around here back in the tatgate days, and likely still has some pent up resentment from that.
I've had the same exact experience at Buckeye Corner. In fact, I will not be ordering from them again. I also live in the south, Florida, and the local sports stores have carried no OSU championship gear. So I ordered from Buckeye Corner, and had the same experience.
BTW - to those who mentioned Fanattics, they are also owned by Lids - as is Buckeye Corner.
Out of curiosity, you say Buckeyes could get three commitments in the next 48 hrs. But we're in on 4 players. Gustin is 50/50, the others are probabilities. Is it a numbers thing? If they get Arnette tonight and Gustin tomorrow, they'll only take one of Hill and Prince?
Yeah. Definitely feel old. I was a student when Eddie was there. In fact he was in the class I would have graduated with, if I didn't my time getting through college. I guess I was having too much fun at OSU to want to hurry graduating. So for him to have a kid playing in college makes me feel old. I don't often find reasons to root for the SEC, especially living in Florida, but I will definitely being rooting for Eddie's kid.
I live on the gulf coast of Florida. You can't hardly get me to go to Miami. Give me the gulf coast any day. Better yet, give me Ohio... I'd move back in a heartbeat if my wife was willing.
I think the thing that changed the most is Cardale's ability to throw the ball 6 miles, which brought Devin Smith more into play. The long balls to Smith stretched the field, and made the running game and intermediate throws easier to complete. So, I believe if someone can step into Devin's role as the long ball threat, Cardale makes the offense better with the strong arm and the threat of the long ball. If we don't have that threat, JT's accuracy on short to intermediate throws makes him the best bet. The wildcard is Braxton. His arm was pretty strong, too. If he gets his shoulder right, he's probably still the best option.
Awesome videos. I had chills through the entire thing. Every time I hear the Urban "We don't want to coach average" speech, I run through the nearest wall. Great job. I could watch this on a loop. To watch where started to where they are is amazing. Also awesome to watch all the great players and remember how much these players meant to the program. Oh yeah, almost forgot... It's easy to forget how great Braxton Miller was. This video reminded me.
Wow. 18 out of 11 starters returning on defense. I hadn't realized. We'll be unstoppable.
I have the opposite reaction to this. I've been irritated at the lack of disrespect we've been getting. Even though Oregon is favored, it seems like every time I turn on coverage of the game, it's an OSU love fest. And the majority of pundits I've seen are choosing OSU. So I welcome anything that comes off as disrespect. I don't want the team to lose their underdog edge.
Urbs says he wants players that are competitive at everything they do. Dropping 91 pts on a poor post op kid pretty much counts as competitive at everything.
I thinks it's an important note, and I don't know how you'd quantify it, that in many of the games where we gave up over 200 yes, many of the yards came late in the game after the opponent was behind and had given up on rushing. Michigan State, Penn State and Alabama come to mind as examples where we stopped the passing game in the first half, but they came up with a large majority of their yards from the mid 3rd quarter on.
It was a good matchup for us, but honestly, if that was really just because it was the best play, wouldn't that ball have been going to Devin Smith? I don't think Devin was on the field. If he was, he didn't run an out route. But Devin is the deep ball threat. That's who you'd go to. Unless, of course, you were trying to get Evan a TD.
Some of the top games speaks to perhaps youth and a recency bias. '95 Notre Dame game has to be on the top 5 list. '87 TTUN game (Earle's last) is probably on the list. The '68 season was 5 years before I was born, and so the Woody/Bo Ten year War is out of my memory, but I'm sure there's some games in there that deserve consideration.
My Top 5:
1) '03 Miami
2) '14 Bama
3) '95 Notre Dame
4) '87 TTUN
5) '06 TTUN (Awesome game would be higher is not for the outcome of the season)
2) D Grant (the others lists have him much too low)
10) C Grant
I understand what the OP is saying, and I think he has a point. The team was obviously very excited about winning the game, but they weren't excited about winning a prestigious bowl game. They were excited about beating Bama, beating the SEc and advancing to the NC game. When people talk about the 2014 season, no one will ever talk about winning the Sugar Bowl. They will talk about beating Bama, getting to the NC game, or winning the National Championship. In past years, a Sugar Bowl win was a huge way to end the season. This year it was a stepping stone.
It's a crime Cam wasn't the All B1G punter. I'm certain it's because he didn't have enough attempts to qualify for the punting stats.
I just ran through the wall between my home office and the living room.
The article is a fake.
You're thinking of a medical redshirt, which wouldn't apply here. If Collier plays, he loses his redshirt.
I still can't believe Coop chose the _ichigan ga_e to change qbs. On senior day, no less. That would really hurt for a senior to be benched on senior day for that ga_e.
So... Which is it Jimbo? You either didn't talk to him about it, OR he said he didn't remember it. But he can't have told you he didn't remember if you didn't talk to him about it. More lies from Jimbo.
I pick a game day uniform at the beginning of every season to wear every game. Plus my buckeye strand that should be next to me, but not on me, unless I'm at athe game, in which case I wear them. I have the spot on my couch that I must sit at, and my wife does the same. The tv cannot be changed during the game. I never record a game to my dvr, because it seems to be bad luck. I don't pause, rewind, etc. must be live. And I can't use my iPad during a game. I can use my iPhone to search scores, or text other friends watching the game, but not the iPad. I also have a group text that I must send an O H! To the group on game day. There's more, but I've already embarrassed myself enough and proven that I have issues...
I wore my new Nike OSU sneakers for the Navy and Va Tech game. Then stopped, because obviously... Well I wore then again just during the day but not during the game for Penn St. The karma gods were not not happy about that, either. So I may never wear them again.
Nope. Not the only dumbass.
