I don't hate on Nevada but the Wisemen deal did seem a little strange--since they all seemed to have the same opinions on a subject. How many times have you seen three people--important people--agree on everything. There was never any " Wiseman 1 think this way, the other two don't agree." That made me think that the Wisemen were a creation.

Actually the best advice is to get to know someone well before hitting the sheets; I know that sounds prudish, but believe I am no prude--truth is when you let your lower head make decisions you have a high chance of getting into a bad jam. By doing the whole dating routine you can spot the incongruities and lies over time. Young men need to learn to use there upper head. Coeds take classes that some disparage as " how not to get rape." Truth is young men need a class too "how not to rape." You don't just jump into bed with whoever! Do they dating thing. If he did he'd eventually see things--like a high school sophomore math book in her car, or facebook post about 'the big game,' overhearing a convo with her mother that sounds a little juvenile. Having quick sex is not worth jail, losing a scholly, or a possible football career over. That is my advice to all you young men and women out there. Protect yourself my using your head--the one on your shoulders.

Ditto. And it will happen. 

Comment 12 Jul 2015

One thing I think will happen is we'll see another QB run the wildcat. It will save the starter from extra hits while giving the wildcat more of a passing threat. 

I also can see another starting Hawaii to give the starter a rest since it is five days after VT.

Natty Light? I would take my chances with the algea. 

Comment 08 Jul 2015

I'll add that the ' vote dilution' argument doesn't hold water. In 1995, the Year of Eddie, Bobby Hoying and Terry Glenn were also legit Heisman candidates and recieved votes. Having other Heisman talent doesn't hurt, it helps by insuring defenses can't target Zeke. As for stats and touches, come on, the running back in Meyer's offence will always get carries, stats, touchdowns.

Wait a second: if the title of the column is "This Week in Buckeye History" than your coverage should be games played on the dates of the week the column shows. For instance you can't put the 2006 Michigan game on Maryland week because the 06 Game did not occur on any date that week. As a reader I would diffently look down on that. If you want to do it the way you suggest, change the name to something else.

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. 

Comment 12 Jun 2015

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. 

Comment 12 Jun 2015

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.  

Comment 06 Jun 2015

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. 

Comment 03 Jun 2015

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.
