There's homerism and then there's homerism.  Wow.  I can sit here right now and admit to the world that a Braxton-less OSU is not the 5th or 6th best team in the nation (depending which major poll you ask), and even if Braxton was healthy, being ranked that high was questionable until OSU were to prove it on the field.  TTUN #6?  ROFL, I don't think so.  They've got a LOT to prove before they deserve to even be ranked in the top 25 at all.

Desmond Howard has officially reached Mark May levels of dumbfuckedness.  He is seriously one dumb mother fucker.

If Elliott was THE guy getting the bulk of the carries, he could easily get 1300 yards.  However, I don't see it happening just because like you said, lots of touches probably to go around for everyone.

I think OSU gets two from the DL (Bennett and Bosa), none from LB, two from the DB (Grant, Bell), none from QB, two from RB/WR/TE (Dontre, Elliott, Heuerman your best bets), one from OL (Decker), and one from special teams (Johnston).

By my math, that's 8.

This is a great point.

So tired of hearing about an overrated jackass who isn't even a good enough QB to start for the Clowns!

And yes we know Braxton is hurt, but I'm willing to bet that he felt worse about his HS teammate's death than his own season-ending injury.

If TTUN loses to App State again, I will go on a diet.

If Urban is ever going to win this fucking award, this is the year to do it.  Expectations will never be lower with Braxton out.  And they're still not that low.  Which means he'll have to win at least 11 games and the B1G championship to get it.

Or, given the simplicity and coolness of the shirt in the post, have a shirt that simply has this on it:

I was in 8th grade.  I made a bet with a friend at school on that game.  I bet on the Buckeyes and lost.  :(

It was also the last version of The Game in Columbus that I didn't go to.  Been to every meeting in Columbus since.  And I was never skinnier at any point in my life than I was around that time.

Cautiously optimistic is probably the perfect phrase for what I'm thinking.  Barrett does have quite a bit of talent, but of course, zero experience in a game against guys that don't play for Ohio State.

That is horrible news.  RIP.

I randomly came across an image of #54 for Kent State this morning (don't even remember what I was searching for), but I didn't look at it.  That's the one who passed.  One of Braxton's high school teammates, too.  It might have been a tough day yesterday for us Buckeye fans with the Braxton news, but the season-ending injury is so inconsequential next to this.

If it's not his junk...then what is under his shirt and why is he carrying it under his shirt?

Comment 20 Aug 2014

Hell to the yeah, love it.  And glad to see it home and home.

The Schott should be raucous on 12/10/16...might have to try to get tickets to that one.  I'm sure the building UConn plays in (XL Center?) will be provide a hostile environment as well, providing a great early road test for next season.

Using the Nokia Lumia 928 with IE and I can scroll the top 3 stories.

There are other browser apps you can download.  On my old Android phones, I used Opera a lot.

I must say, I did not expect this turn of events with Braxton coming back next year.  This is pretty cool. 

It will be very interesting, though, if Barrett plays very well this year.  What happens if Barrett leads this team to a B1G title?  What if, somehow, this team gets into the playoffs?  Good problem to have?  I think it could be.  There could be some interesting things that the offense could do with both of them.  Either way, the Buckeyes have a known commodity coming back at QB, so they've got at least one good QB for next year. 

Braxton could become the first OSU QB to ever start 3 games in the Big (Out)House.

The wrestling fan in me immediately thought of Bad News Barrett.  Him delivering bad news in postgame pressers, #BNB style, would be epic, especially when it's time to give TTUN some BAD NEWS!

Just don't get hurt frequently like the actual Bad News Barrett in WWE.

YES!  YES YES YES YES YES!  YES!  SO MUCH YES!

Comment 19 Aug 2014

First of all, Braxton, get well soon.  I feel bad for the guy.  Senior year and this happens.  I hope this doesn't spell the end of his playing career, but if it does, well, that's where the "student" part of "student-athlete" comes in (as much of a sham as "student-athlete" seems to be sometimes).  Best of luck in whatever happens from here out.

That said, I'm excited to see what J.T. Barrett brings to the table.  I don't think the season is totally fucked.  Maybe playoff hopes could be shot.  Then again, and I hope this is the case - J.T. can be our own version of BAD NEWS BARRETT.  Hey TTUN (and Sparty and everyone else on the schedule), I'm afraid I've got some bad news!

Sounds like a good idea.  I could use a little comfort eating myself...
