Comment 20 Sep 2014

Today is my son's third birthday so the week off came at the right time for me. Now if I could get Gene to keep Sept 20 as the bye week for the next couple years I'll be great. Once he turns 5, September 20 will be spent watching the bucks live, no matter where they are.

Listen, I love watching Brax play ball. He is the most elusive qb I've ever seen. With that said, he's not (or hasn't been) the best qb. I know at times last year, I felt like our offense as a whole, looked better with Smooth Jazz in. If JT learned anything from Kenny G, I hope it was to be ready and be yourself. JT isn't Braxton but maybe we don't need him to be.

Mid season trades haven't been popular with this GM.  I hate it but the injuries have done this lineup in.  The sad thing is, the "role" players, ie: Billy,Frazier, Mes, Pena, are doing their parts.  It's a shame the big sticks are out.  I like Jay Bruce as a man but would trade him in a heartbeat.  A championship caliber team can't wait out the 2 months of looking like a single A player for the 2 weeks of an MLB right field bat.  I'd probably stick with Cozy just because he is soo good in the field and still young and cheap.

I'm more of a hunter than a shooter but love to pull the trigger either way.  Love to plink with the Remington Speedmaster .22LR my dad gave me.  I carry a Kimber Ultra Carry II .45 in case of emergency.  Just busted a turkey Saturday morning with my Mossberg 835.

I agree with wanting what is best for RDS.  If he goes, good for him, if he stays great for us.  

As for Roby, I feel like he played with one foot out the door all year.  I imagine making a decision to come back, risking millions, weighs heavy at times.  

Comment 11 Dec 2013

I agree!  I'm happy with the way the DLine played andI'm not at all worried about them.  

The linebackers are not good (sans RDS).  I would put some of the blame for this on youth, injuries, and lack of depth  I'm not an expert, just a fan, but other than Shazier, it seems like they spend to much time deciphering the play.  By the time they get it, it's gone. 

The corners and safeties look lost.  It seems the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.  

All just my couch observations...

Comment 03 Dec 2013

I agree!  I just wonder how much more time the defense has been on the field this year due to our offense being so fast.  Do you suppose that the lack of lengthy rests and lack of in game coaching time has any effect? 

Again, I'm not making excuses just wanted other opinions.

Comment 03 Dec 2013

Firstly, I'm not making excuses for our defense...they looked bad. I would be interested to see our offense's time of possession versus the time of possession our offenses had during one of our good defensive years.  It seems like our defense is on the field a lot.  Of course making a few stops would help but even when they do make a stop our offense strikes quickly and the defense heads right back out there.

If there is anyone out there with the time to post this I would appreciate it.

I'm sorry but our linebackers, other than RDS, suck. I've never seen fewer plays made by a group of ohio state linebackers. They stand around waiting to get blocked, over pursue everything in front of them, and stink in coverage. Whatever happened to the katzenmoyer method; see ball get ball. Trust your instincts!!!

Comment 20 Oct 2012

Anybody else think that if a ref can award points to the defense for the offense holding (or in our case today, blocking in the back) that they should also award the offense a touchdown when the defense commits a foul in the end zone?  Just seems logical to me. Let me also say, I don't like the rule either way.

My parents (both OSU alums) went to the OSU/WVU game in Morgantown about 10 or 12 years ago with my sister and her husband (who were WVU students at the time).  They had a great time and didn't get too much hazing.  Bucks won pretty easily so that made it easier to deal with. 

I, in the meantime, threw a party at my parents house and almost burnt it down while twirling one of my brother in law's WVU shirts above my head on fire! The plastic mountaineer melted, flew off the shirt, and stuck to the siding.  A bit of Mommy Juice may have contributed to my decision making that night but then also was used to put out the fire.
