I have always been a big fan of playing a home game against a MAC team, or even Youngstown State, keeping north of a half mil in our state, and helping out the little guys in the process. What bothers me is that there are, what 6? 7? MAC schools in Ohio and still OSU brings in Buffalo and a directional Michigan team from time to time. I wouldn't think it'd be too hard to keep it in the state. But now, it'll be even harder to keep it going with such an emphasis on SoS.
I still laugh at the thought of Ash leaving Arkansas and Bert for a pay cut. Its a good feeling knowing this man came to OSU because he knows he'll win here.
So, 10tv reported that the AP reported about a story on the Dispatch, who is owned by 10tv. Makes sense, right?
This was my thought exactly.
Most likely sitting in a window, reading Global Journalist while drinking a long island iced tea.
I'm very curious to see what all the critics are going to say after the game. If OSU were to win by 2+ touchdowns, how overrated will NU be? If it's a shootout, and OSU only wins by <7 points, how overrated will OSU be, especially after the WISC game being much closer than it should have been. If the score goes into the 30's or more for both teams, is OSU's defense going to be ridiculed? I do hope for a lot of rain on Sat. I want it to be a downpour, and we just pound the ball down NU's throat.
He sang a verse of his favorite song:
"Little black submarines
Put me back on the line
Told my girl I'd be back
This is wrecking my mind."
And beating Arkansas, even though it didn't "technically" happen. Arkansas is no Alabama, but it's something to consider.
...which is when Corey Brown and Chris Fields will have the opportunity for home runs.
I never would have thought to see Fields lumped in with Brown as a home run hitter. The spring game was a shock, but I'm glad to see he's stepped up and become another option for the offense.
This has nothing to do with anything, but I thought it was cool.

I'm just as confused as to why Iowa would be a choice at all. I'd see Minny making it before Iowa this year.
Like most fans, I'm glad the powers that be put Ohio State and Michigan in the same division but for one year, the thought of having the chance to beat Michigan in back to back games is pretty damn delicious. Like Halle Berry in her prime delicious.
I also think this would be delicious. One question: When was Halle Berry not in her prime?
These rumors always have some truth to them.
I love Manziel. The kid is living the dream. I say let him keep living it. He might not have much more time in the limelight. Think about what you were doing at the age of 20. I know I was drinking Natty Light in the dorms, not being paid attention to by anyone. Now think about what he's doing at the age of 20. I'm envious/jealous. My thought is that there are many others who are also jealous, but take it a much different way. Then they spout out in disgust when its really grown men not knowing how to contain the envy of a 20 year old with court side seats. Plus, SPROTS TAKES AND PAGE HITS. At least he's taking some of the attention off the Ohio State Page Hit Whores.
You also get the drama of the #1 recruit and the BS that can come along with it. I would much rather have 3-4 mid levels than a #1.
I've heard more than once that CB's need to have that swag. Roby definitely has it. He's got the cohones to go with the swag. I hope he has a banner year this year.
The '06 team was pretty much flawless. The '02 team didn't have the talent, but was a grinder. I would have taken the '96 team except I expect Coop would slow play that game, too and lose it. I also would love to see the '06 team with Smith go against TPeezy and the '10 team...
I don't see how Tress would turn on his kids now. He took the blame, and is sticking to his guns. He is still a father figure in some of these guy's eyes (MoClarette for ex). He will take his life and his pride and move on, while throwing himself under the bus. He says he still doesnt believe he did wrong. Maybe this is why he was so loved by his S/A?
Thats the thing - if everyone would ignore SAS or Skip, they would also go away. But, they say too many stupid things to get a rise out of people. If we could find a way to get people to stop watching ESPN for anything other than sports programming, they would probably go back to mostly sports programming instead of fluff to draw attention.
After we remove the cinder blocks he calls hands.
I'd like to see him back in less years. It seems that his work ethic has already put a toll on his body. When going non-stop like that against bigger guys, he's going to beat the shit out of himself. I'd love to see him in the WHAC before 2020.
Grant needs to show that he was worth all the hype when he signed. The LB position could definitely be a glaring weak spot in the defense this year if Grant doesnt show up. No matter how bad ass Shazier is (which he is as bad ass as they come), and no matter how much nickel and dime is played, without a strong MLB to hold up the center of the D, it could be quite the issue. I'm not so worried about what Grant is going to do, as I am worried that there isn't anyone else who seems capable enough yet to play MLB. He pretty much has to fill the void.
