Haha please feel free to eat my loans as well my good sir. And 100 bucks is 100 bucks. Add 100 bucks a month to all your bills and whatnot or the next 5 years. It adds up!
Respectfully of course, I don't think you understand how much we pay to go here. Say he has to pay his full tuition for the rest of the year, adding on living somewhere, food, etc. That's a cool 19 grand. Now I'm not defending him because he was an idiot but that's still a lot of money. Now I'll be lucky because I'll be in the hole, maybe about half of that after a full 4 years, adding on grad school as well, but a loan of that amount is no joke.
Edit: Also to whoever said it above, it's technically not the school who pulled his scholarship, but the chapter who will be stopping the funding for it.
JT is going to be very special. You can see it. He's doing things Braxton was doing last year, his third year. But I think that's a testament to Braxton as well, being a leader and a teacher on and off the field. JT spent that year learning well, it's really great to see. What he could be in a year or two is insane. Very high ceiling.
I've said this as well.. Which this next point is totally off topic but I always ask my father who would win in a game today, The Dream Team or a All Star cast of players from today. Rose, Kobe, LeBron, Durant, Dwight, etc. Of course he says the Dream Team and I argue that a team of today's stars would not only keep up but I think they would win. In a game 7 series I still have to give the advantage to the Dream Team but I think it'd definitely go to a Game 7.
Sorry for going off topic of the thread but Hove's point of players changing, progressing, etc. Players from today might be more athletic and obviously the game has changed. I think LeBron is the perfect example. 6'8 250 and moves like he moves is scary. A team from today is beating opponents handily just like the Dream Team did but back then I really can't think of any teams Jordan and all them faced that had the NBA type talent on their teams like Spain, Brazil, etc do.
I mentioned something about this back when Elflein was at LG and Price at RG, I believe after the Navy game. I think the line has better communication and gel better when Elflein and Decker were split. Giving Pat the opportunity to help Darryl Baldwin out and Decker with Billy Price.
Man, I was really high on Trey Johnson when he first came here. Nowhere to be found now.
I actually really liked the commercial.. The only way it could have been better though is if instead of Buck I Guy laughing at the end, it was Urban. That would have been awesome.
"We want change!"
"Why do you want change?"
"Our players are not being protected!!! ...and sorta because we suck and we now realize our coaches are terrible and it's no longer fun to watch the games."
Hey Ross, did you happen to notice on the first Buckeye TD of the game, Rod Smith's touchdown, that the offensive line was lined up in a "heavy" or "loaded" front on the right side. With it being, from left to right:
Heuerman, Price, Boren, Elflein, Decker, Baldwin.
It was a different look but worked pretty well. Just wondering if this might be something they would run a lot in goal line sets or if it was just a "let's see if this works" kind of thing. I haven't noticed them run it this year until last Saturday.
Gonna be glued to the TV to watch the game in East Lansing. Wouldn't mind seeing Sparty smack around Nebraska and obviously Nebraska then win out. A solid win over both could really change the way the Buckeyes are viewed. Plus it's going to be good game film cause I think Nebraska and Ohio State are similar in a lot of ways. Gonna be a great game.
Also, it's going to be a challenge if that Maryland QB plays and they mix in some read option, we have struggled with that at times this year with VT and at times with Cincy.
In my mind, the two biggest who stand out to me. Carlos Hyde and Kenny Freakin G! Urban mentioned both having poor attitudes and not buying in at first..
They both helped this program a tad bit I'd say.
Yeah I agree. Let's keep Hoke at Michigan.
A lot of people seem to forget what Braxton has done so far at Ohio State, crazy.
Exactly. 231 yards on 3 plays. All big plays. 2 because of mistakes by the players and the 3rd because of the coach. Vonn Bell not turning his head around on one, forgetting he was the deep safety on te second and Chris Ash not deploying a deep safety with 30 seconds to go and Cincy having to go 80 yards.
I think the defense doesn't look a thing like last year's actually. I don't remember them ever blitzing aside from an occasional Roby corner blitz. They can always get better but young defense in a new scheme, looking positive so far.
Mind you there were also nekkid selfies of Greg Oden on the Internet. Hope to God your girlfriend didn't see those...if she did, I'm sorry brother. Speaking of Greg Oden, I'm about to go get a 12 inch spicy Italian for lunch. Anyone else want anything?
I was just kidding haha. But I agree, very fun to watch.
Please please please find some threads on MGoBlog around the time of their Sugar Bowl win about how their program was on the up and up, how Michigan was back to prominence and how Hoke was the Michigan Man they needed.
I'd rather take Funchess when he decides to transfer to Ohio State.
I thought this was funny as well. I can't embed the tweet from my phone but here is a screenshot of the OG Snoop Dogg even giving praise to Coach Schlegel!
I still hate to think that if the gameplan, offensively and defensively, that Ohio State has ran the last 2 weeks was ran against VTech... The game wouldn't have even been close.
JT has been solid. Love the way he plays. Excited to see him grow these next couple months.
It looks that way because of the big plays. Yes I don't expect this offense to give up 3 70+ yards TDs a game but they will give up a long play here and there. This is the first year in this system and you can tell. Part coaching and part players. Ash not having deep coverage 30 seconds before halftime, Vonn Bell running the wrong way (right) when he was supposed to be the deep man when Cincy scored on the fake screen slant. Bell again not pinpointing the ball and instead just waving his hand in the air. People have to remember that this scheme is great for all the athletes we have on defense but it's still the first year. I honestly didn't think they played all that bad. Got off the field a lot on 3rd downs. That's what you want.
I actually really like the look of the defense. They will be tested, recognize mistakes and learn from them. The best thing though is that they can learn from their mistakes in this game and move on with momentum. Because they actually won. It's going to be another test this week, I'm excited.
Well after JT leads the Buckeyes to a National Championship and wins the Heisman all next year I think he'll leave. Meaning him and Braxton will both be gone next year so Torrance would actually only have to wait 1 season to try and take over the reigns.
You mean Gibson?
Why is everyone so high on Baylor?
Northwestern State, SMU and Buffalo were their 3 OOC games. Plus I'll call right now they'll likely lose 2 maybe 3 more games. @Oklahoma, @West Virginia, Okie State, @Texas.
Great form by Schlegel there. Dropped his hips, wrapped up, destroyed.
