I will say this about Lou holtz... He was the keynote speaker for a charity breakfast I attended a handful of years ago. Small group, maybe 30 or 40 in the room. He was engaging and never missed a punchline. The best part of the morning was that he stuck around and spoke with every single person in the room for well over the scheduled time of the event. He could've bounced when his time was up but he stuck around telling great stories about OSU. That man has some love for the program and I'm glad to have him as an ally in the national media.
This may be the most up votes I've ever seen in one thread. I'm impressed.
Bully! (Not in the picking on someone sense. More like the - exclamation meaning well done.)
Came to say the same thing. very happy for the young man.
He French-fried when he should've pizza'd.
To be perfectly honest, I think this is a great idea. Further, I think the shaming should be made as public as possible by the staff to deter future issues. A weekly piece about who was suspended, for what and for how long could be viewed as both educational and entertaining.
Im not a very active poster but I am a very active reader of this sites content. The staff provides content that is miles better than any other OSU blog right now. It gets tough to motivate myself to join a discussion when 50% of the people are just whining and have nothing constructive to offer.
I feel better.
Very well played.
With all due respect, you forgot to mention Paulus' stint as Syracuse starting quarterback.
Low hanging fruit. Way too easy.
It's great if we can get some help from other teams losing but the Buckeyes control their own destiny - that starts today. Win out and they're in good shape at the end of the season. That continues with beating Rutgers today. Go Bucks!
Sorry folks, the park's closed. The moose out front shoulda told ya.

If people played monopoly the right way it wouldn't drag on forever. The big reason that the game takes forever is, according to Harbo: "Whenever you land on an unowned property you may buy that property from the Bank at its printed price. You receive the Title Deed card showing ownership; place it face up in front of you. If you do not wish to buy the property, the Banker sells it at auction to the highest bidder."
Not that this would make the game a blast, but it might be a little better.
I miss the end of last years depth chart discussions ending with the starting holder position.
Real question though - in case there is a bad snap, wouldn't you want someone a little more agile who can make something happen on a busted play?
Classy move. Go bucks!
That's all well and good but who is the starting holder? No one will ever fill Kenny G's shoes. No one.
I have complete faith in that young man's ability to distribute the rock. Let's not forget that he was EXTREMELY highly rated coming out of high school (let's also take that with a grain of salt as high school rankings don't always translate to the next level). He wouldn't be at OSU if they didn't think he would be able to contribute.
I feel awful for Braxton but I'm actually looking forward to this season. I think its going to be interesting to say the least.
It's been a couple of years since I've been excited about men's hoops in the fall. I really feel like the class Matta put together could do great things.
Depending on the position I would say it could be either. A freshman contributing serious playing time in the offensive backfield would mean they have serious talent. A freshman contributing serious time at O-Line might mean lack of depth. I may be wrong though. It's happened before.
Not that I'm covering any new territory here - This is a great tradition that I hope continues forward past Meyer's reign as head coach. I'm all about earning it and proving you should be there through your hard work. Just goes to show how great of a motivator Meyer is.
To me, the most surprising response to any of these questions is that Minnesota is the most likely "trap" game on the schedule. It makes sense as the guys above pointed out though - coming on the heels of a huge game against Sparty, there could be a let down. Couple that with the lack of experience and it could be a problem. However, I trust that the coaches will have the team motivated regardless of the opponent.
Tim, do you like movies about gladiators?
Compared to the money sent by Uncle Sam to The Ohio State University, the entire football budget is a rounding error.
This may be the most accurate, well said summation of this event I've read yet. Good on you, sir.
M Man - your take on most posts I've followed here may not necessarily be the most popular but they are almost always logical and they hit the nail on the head.
