I'd like to see that study. While I'm sure there is a level that happiness plateaus, I would not put it at 70-75K. Plus, there are many other variables to factor in with a specific window of 'happiness'.

Well, there's always Paul Brown... 6 State championships (4 national) with Massillon; a National Championship with tOSU (1942), and 3 NFL championships with the Browns...among other accomplishments.

Born and grew up in SE Ohio (Cambridge). Went into the Army in 1982 and retired in 2005 after 23 years, in North Carolina. Still here, but always a Buckeye!

If that nightmare scenario (for the playoff committee / SEC) were to happen, it would come down to conference champions. Ohio State and TCU obvious. Arizona is right behind Baylor at #7, and with defeating Oregon, they're in. The question is whether Georgia Tech (currently ranked higher, and having defeated FSU (reigning champs) or Missouri becomes the fourth team. It would get into the semantics of how each team played in their CCG. Politics says SEC...though the Indiana loss may push it to GTech.

Quite frankly, when it came to wanting someone to be more vocal as a team leader, that was what we heard quite often with regards to Braxton, not J.T., as Braxton was much more subdued in that regard. J.T. was the only Freshman on the leadership committee his Freshman year (as a redshirt).

Get your facts straight.

2002 Miami Hurricanes had Dorsey and McGahee as finalists (and the Buckeyes put both of them out of the game at one point or another).

Comment 29 Nov 2014

With regard to the injury, that's football. I don't know that J.T. keeping the ball was the right read on that play. However, with regard to the play calling in tight games, I think Herman gets tight and predictable (this years MSU game is the main exception, and I think he may have used up whatever he had for that game). I don't know why, and wrt to Jalin, where was he?

However, we beat Michigan- they suck! We're in the CCG, and have recent experience replacing Heisman caliber QBs. GO BUCKS!!

27 - 23 - 2. I went sub .500 during the 90's...but Tressel put me back above sea level, and I expect Urban to increase that. 

*The 90's were the worst...1993, 1995 & 1996 always remind me to never take this game for granted.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

I have a good idea of what will happen next year (at least I think it's a good idea), but that means nothing right now. Right now, there is a team with great chemistry, getting better every week, and working together for a common goal. I choose to sit back and enjoy the show, and leave 'what if' topics where they belong...alone.

Fowler said on the air that if Yale won, Gameday may cover Harvard/Yale next week.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

I would like to see them switch Marshall to Kick Returner, and have Samuel doing the Punt Returner duties. No specific reasoning, but a gut feeling that those positions better suits their personalities / abilities. I'm not the coach obviously, just a passionate observer.

I came into this thread with my own penicillin, but I see it isn't needed...

Reference Boston makes it a bit understandable. My experience in that neck of the woods (stationed 3 years at Fort Devens) is that a person from Boston will walk across the street in order to make you miserable.

Comment 19 Oct 2014

Hmmm, you mean southern like from Texas or Hawaii (the most southern state)?

Comment 17 Oct 2014

1. Army of the Potomac Trilogy (Mr Lincoln's Army, Glory Road, A Stillness at Appomattox), by Bruce Catton
2. The Frontiersman, by Allan Eckert; Daniel Boone may have gotten the best Press, but Simon Kenton is THE 'Badass' frontiersman
3. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien 
4. Red Storm Rising & all of the 'Jack Ryan' novels, by Tom Clancy
5. The Call of the Wild, by Jack London
6. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain; technically two separate books, but omitting one would be like peanut butter without jelly
7. Band of Brothers, by Stephen Ambrose; great book and mini series, many moments truly hit home.
8. A Song of Ice & Fire, by George R.R. Martin
9. The Killer Angels, by Michael Shaara; I've read so many historical books/novels, and this is one of the best. The south may rise again, but not at Little Round Top, baby!
10. A multitude of novels by Jeff Shaara (Michael's son); he completed the Civil War Trilogy begun by his dad, plus has another one being written on the Civil War; he also has a 2 book series on the Revolution, and other books on the Mexican War, WWI...and so on.

True on Thomas (given a redshirt, not ready enough to play); Wilson was lighter, but that doesn't take away his hands while he was playing; and no C. Smith (who the majority of fans didn't want on the field after the VTech game). Brax did have DSmith, Philly, Heuermann, Vanette (improved, yes, we can see that because someone is throwing to him), and Spencer (yes, and JT is making use of him as a receiver).

My main point above, is that as a passer, JT has shown more accuracy and willingness to throw to whoever is getting open, and not relying on security blankets. In your reply, you didn't address anything other that who receivers are. I recognize Braxtons' attributes, the primary one being his ability to make plays with his legs. It's not 'disloyal' to recognize JT's ability with his arm.
