RT @GerdOzone When Notre Dame drops Michigan to schedule Ohio State, you can see how serious increased importance of strength of schedule is

Notre Dame announces Ohio State series during its final Michigan week, a series it shut down. Troll Level: 1,000,000 bridges.

1984     24-0  2nd quarter

Ohio State 45, Illinois 38

Setup  --  The week before, coach Earle Bruce’s sixth Ohio State team had fallen from first place in the Big Ten standings and from No. 2 to No. 8 in the polls with a 28-23 loss at Purdue. And the Buckeyes were well on their way to falling out of favor with Ohio Stadium fans when they fell behind Illinois 24-0 in the second quarter. But instead of getting down while it was getting booed, OSU decided to get going — one running back in particular.

Stars   --  Keith Byars wore a scarlet No. 41 jersey, but it’s possible he had a large “S” on an undershirt. The junior running back was simply super for the Buckeyes, rushing for a school-record 274 yards on 39 carries and tying Pete Johnson’s school record with five touchdowns. The bit players included OSU receiver Cris Carter (seven catches, 134 yards) and Illinois quarterback Jack Trudeau (313 passing yards, four TDs).

Any chance you could get some 3x or 4x shirts for us BIG guys?

He will still look like the two time player of the year. His legs and brain are not broken and his leadership goes a long way. Urban's long term comes down to the "best player plays" and that includes quarterback. When Braxton's arm heals I feel sure that he will win that competition easily. Yes all decisions have consequences and that includes not playing your best player. For a kid that has not played a down of football since his senior year of high school (and not all of that one) you sure have a lot of faith in J.T.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

You are seriously going to tell a two time B1G player of the year that he can't play for us. I really don't understand the thinking behind this. Competition is good for every body including quarterback. I have no doubt that Braxton will easily win the job an JT will be a great #2.

This from Kirk Barton via twitter     I agree

Braxton went 12-0,  Tebow won a Heisman, Both did it as 19 year old 2nd year guys. Don't panic. Coach Meyer knows what he is doing #OhioState

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Do not claim to know my motivations about wanting the best for Braxton. Yes I believe he needs to come back and prove he is healthy and that will have to come from playing and not from the combine. By learning the system I meant that he needs to learn to read defenses better along with his progressions in the passing game. Yes I suppose YOU would make a two time B1G player of the year earn his way and I am equally sure that he would. 

I personally like 5th year one and done seniors like Russel Wilson but I am just a selfish 60 year old man who only sees through scarlet glasses.  lol

Comment 19 Aug 2014

I disagree completely. He will have every reason to come back. He will need to prove that he is healthy and able to throw. Another year in college to learn the system, read defenses and tutor the young guys will help him immensely with the mental part of the game. EVERY team in America would love to have him as a 5th year senior. He is a TWO time B1G player of the year and you don't want him. I think you have lost your marbles.

Exactly what I was thinking. Nothing else stands out but this.

Comment 04 Jul 2014

Anybody else think young Urban looks like Jeff Foxworthy?
