I tell you who they need to take the tickets from: Buck-I-Guy and the three douches. Leave the Vet and former Woody manager in the seats. 

Comment 14 Jun 2015

Yes, yes. A play action pass out of the I-formation tied 14-14 with 80-yards and a second to go will certainly fool the defense; great call Cooper's staff! Great call indeed! Makes me want to drink a case of 20/20. 

Comment 12 Jun 2015

I agree about Wilhelm. I rate him over James Laurinatis. 

I agree about Musburger; him and Gary Danielson were my all-time favorite team. There voices remind me of the amazing 2002 season. I'll never understand the hate they get from Buckeye fans.

I thought we would get killed by Wisconsin. I thought they'd run for 400-yards, that CJ would struggle, that we had peaked at MSU--I was sure of it.

Once I said excuse me, let someone through at Kennedy airport, and said thanks we he held the door for me--it was Mark May.

in 2013 I called Meyer's offense single wing and high schoolish for one play against Northwestern.

shame, the shame.

Yes. To the elite soldier the clarity of purpose is inspirational. Taking out Michigan is as clear as it comes. ;-) 

Comment 07 Jun 2015

They lack talent, plain and simple. The cupbards are bare and have been so for some time. NFL scouts say so, and it is obvious when you watch them.

Yes Brady Hoke was not a good coach, but we go into cartoon thinking mode to attribute Michigans problem just too him. "Oh UM is a 10-2 team but Brady sucked sooo bad they ended up 5-7!" I sm sorry, but that's a bad argument. Hoke had been a college coach for decades, he knows the game. Yeah maybe he is missing that certain something to win, but his inability could only account for a lose here and there, not a full five games! That is a lack of talent; and it will be a problem until they get a great recruiting class which takes a year or two to develop. The lsck of a class in 2014 just added a year until then.

I think if they go 7-5 then Harbaugh did a top notch job; especially when they have no viable QB.

Do you actually cheer at those things? Never went to one. But if you do, and they yave bands that play after every important happening, and beer and stuff. . . Hell, I am game! 

Comment 04 Jun 2015

It is; it's the front four. I think some people don't know what a blitz is. Although, Bama plays a 3-4, so maybe it qualifies. But it doesn't go to the OP, which talks of passing ratings.

Just to be different: Bradely Nowell from Sublime. He didn't live to see them hit it big; ODed right before the release of their great record in 1996. 

Comment 01 Jun 2015

That is an even minded, objective post; you're probably right. I feel though, and it is a gut thing, that something just isn't going right up there. A big name coach, that Jim Har is, should had stopped the bleeding with the 2015 class but didn't; they basically are lacking a whole recruiting class up there, and that's a big deal no matter what anyone says. That takes you off schedule when you are building a program. 2016 is starting slow, though there is plenty if time left, but much talent is falling off their board. Then add all the weirdness. . .

My gut tells me he a burn out, lost the touch, doesn't really want to be a college coach, something. We'll see. Maybe this is just his way. I'll withhold final judgment until the season.

You can watch the xfiles on Netflix. I seen in the last year every episode up too when it jumped the shark. 

Comment 25 Apr 2015

My take:

1.) Some fans think player are dumb for not signing with Ohio State only because they want them on their team and so they can brag about recruiting. Period. All other arguments are crappy justification to hide, badly, this truth.

2.) If you say this now but didn't say, "Wow the buckeye picked up a recruit who had an offer from FSU. That was dumb of him" last spring then I see that as a moral failing. You can't change your argument based on how it effects your team and be considered a solid person IMHO. I see this all over the world and it causes so many problems. 

3.) Ohio State recruits well because we have so many advantages, but we are not the only one with such advantages. Get over yourselves. We are not the only program to win a national championship in the last 20-years, and there are several programs that can win it this year. In fact, probability is against the Buckeyes repeating. Fact, it is a better bet that they don't repeat. Recruits know this! 

4.) Stop basing your self esteem on this team. Whether the buckeyes win 100-straight or lose 100-straight has no bearing on you; you will still be you. 

That's all. Hopefully we salt of the earth Buckeyes can minimize the damage by the big mouths.

Everyone knows they lost the Civil War because Pickett was overconfident and his men didn't train hard before the charge. Nine out of ten times Pickett would have taken that crest with his superior southern speed. In the end, the south had better soldiers. 

Comment 19 Apr 2015

I think we in the midwest should prepare for the great migration back. Eventually our water we be an asset, like oil. No way should we sell it now. It has great future economical power. 

Comment 13 Apr 2015

I am guessing that is not what they said, or if they said it, it was an example or a hyperbole they assume you'd get. If they did then they lack the critical thinking skills to be a teacher. I bet they meant that people coming up with lies will add filler to a conversation to stall as they think the lies up. This is true. " to be honest. . ." Can be an example of filler. But generally, " to be honest" is just a openning phrase. I use it all the time when I am nor lying. So I'd forget that piece of wrong-information; it's wooish.

Are you confusing Beanie Wells with Carlos Hyde? 

Comment 11 Apr 2015

The off-season, when an usually united Buckeye Nation breaks into factions and eats itself: Cleveland/Cincinnati, Young/Old, gotta love it! Coming soon: the Baxtonistas, versus the Barretacrats  versus Cardale-idists.
