 Urban Master:

Your comment about the Sandman being one of the best entrance songs for a game.  Got me to thinking, does anyone know if the Ohio State band is going to the Virginia Tech game? 

I am going to the game Monday night, and to me there is nothing better than The Ohio State band coming out onto the field.

GO BUCKS, Bring on Virginia Tech!!

my therapist tells me I need to quit being so uptight and nervous all the time ...

S&G: My therapist said the same thing... I asked him if I could start after the VA Tech, and he said of course.

NUTS: Pretty sure Cardale won that Twitter battle. For those thinking of battling Cardale in a violent game of Twitter...my advice - don't.

 I don't think Tyvis is the sharpest knife in the drawer. He just doesn't get it. So now he challenges DoloDale to the circle drill and he is 0 and 2. Tyvis, memo, yore Daddy threw you that pick in the spring game so he could Tattoo your dumbass. You think you would have learned, after the Illinois game, being DoloDale's friend wasn't going to spare you. My advice to you, Tyvis, put the Circle Drill challenge off til after the VA Tech game. We can't afford anymore casualties.

AWLIN:

Only listened to the tennecheat  guy 20 secs seemed like a typical college football fan.

I thought the same thing! At first I thought it was the Bama guy double dipping. Then I thought, his brother maybe his cousin? I just thought he was disappointed.

Hey, speaking of the Bama guy before the Sugar Bowl? Did anyone catch his rant after the beat down in Dixie?

 Please post if you did. Thank you.

I watched that game. Glenville up by 7 (I believe it was 7 zip),  less than 4 minutes to go and Cardale finds his best receiver, on a deep slant, running free, hits him with a perfect pass, on the dead run, and he drops it. Then on third down he hits a receiver in the end zone and he can't hang on to it. In fairness to the kid, it was a tough catch, but it did go through his hands. Then Hilliard, with no time outs, and had not thrown a pass the whole game, on 2nd run they goe 60 some yards, oh did I mention it was a run, inside the 10, then score. They go for 2, Glenville doesn't call timeout, and lose. Hilliard did the same thing to Mentor for their other state championship.

 That's what I remember, correct me if I'm wrong. 

PS I  don't believe I would remind Cardale of that game! If you caught him in the wrong frame of mind…

One of thé things I would like to see change: just about every time Cardale mopped up he wasn't allowed to Pass. FAMU in 13, whole 2nd half not one pass. In 14, the only time he was able to show his passing was when he started the 2nd half against Illinois. A guy should get at least 2 drives to show what he can do.

It is nearly incomprehensible to me what Cardale Jones was able to accomplish in the post season.

he's (Meyer) a franker coacher than most.

Trying to think of a franker coach than Meyer... True! Meyer can be pretty glib. Somehow, I have the feeling that his players have heard it from Coach before they read/heard it on the Internet, hopefully. I believe it was Tyvis Powell said that if Coach isn't critiquing you, he probably has given up on you. I know we appreciate the frankness.

Two quarterback system? If ever there was a time to use it, there will never be better time to use it than now.

PROS:

  • they both have unique strengths that are different and cause differing problems for defenses
  • with JT, IMO, the defense will crowd the line of scrimmage because of the read option ability of JT. In other words JT spreads the field horizontally.
  • Cardale because of his strong arm, spreads the field vertically, opening up running room for Zeke, room for quick slants, think Thomas against Bama, and the intermediate pass, think Marshall against Bama. The deep passes are a wash, IMO. Cardales might get there a little faster.
  • sure would be a nightmare for defensive coordinators 

CONS: 

  • Is 50% reps in practice enough?
  • will it keep either one from finding his rhythm?
  • Would it cause cadence issues for the slobs?
  • will the receivers have timing problems?
  • finally, would it be a nightmare problem for them or for us?

I don't know, not a coach. But I sure would like them to give it a shot!

Mike Thomas is the only receiver that actually jukes a DB. Most receivers just plant a foot and cut. Not Mike, he jukes outside then runs the inside slant. Those were tight windows against Bama on those slants. He is a stud. As coach Greene said "He is what we thought he was".

Boot camp. That whole flick brought back every memory of why I hated weight lifting. I was having flashbacks of why I hated weightlifting and then me thinking

There is no wrong answer with this team, the second string could win the Big Ten.

 The second team could win the Big Ten West for sure. Beat MSU? Let's be realistic!

 Does he have the heart...

You would not think that would be a question but it is.  Even occurs at the major-league level, where millions of dollars at stake. One thing that became very apparent last year, the tight ends are very integral in blocking. We all know Urban's take on blocking for receivers. Well you can double down on that for tight ends. Huermann and Vannett block the B1G boys, usually at the point of attack. I know Baugh will be a good receiver, but can he block?

 I vote yes! Put the hammer down son, Buckeyes need you. Good Luck.

Hobbies, Hobbies.... The kid wants to major in international business, minor in Chinese, and play football. Good luck with having time to have a hobby. 

Major kudos to you young man. Best of luck, and welcome to Buckeye Nation  

Also, why is Michael Jordan stealing Joey Bosa's shrug?

DJ,

It's a new tactic used by a lot of NFL (and I assume) college teams. Basically prevents defensive holding, forcing DBs to only rely on fundamental positioning, etc.

And that mean old Kerry Coombs telling Eric Smith to "catch the ball, catch the ball" in the Scarlet BTN piece. Coach should have dropped for five.

Great stuff guys! I really appreciate you keeping the TV/radio commentary on as well with the music in the background. 

I agree! But no offense to Paul Kiel,  but can anyone  top Gus Johnson in the Wisconsin Game?  

" take that and don't say nothin" or " blood thirsty" or " oh my goodness" or " The whole State of Ohio…"  every time I watch the replay of Wisconsin  in the big 10 championship game,  I cannot get enough of Gus Johnson. LMAO
