Its funny how delusional the players are as opposed to the coaches who speak the truth. This is just as dumb as what Conner Cook said about Oregon being a tougher opponent despite OSU beating the crap out of them too.
and to add to the poster above who said he is 0-3 against OSU, really saying you will win if you played OSU again when you haven't even won ONCE!
I'm curious why people think Bama will win big on OSU? I just don't see anything that Alabama did that tells me they are that much better than OSU. I think they are quite even. It can go either way.
I agree that you can't simplify beating Alabama but I have watched enough of Bama to know that they are highly overrated. I don't think our Buckeyes can simply pummel the Tide but I also don't see why many out there think it will be easy for Bama to pummel OSU.
I actually think both teams are quite even and it will be a fight, but I'm not about to say Bama is the toughest competition in football right now because they are very flawed too. I said it over a month ago, there isn't one team in college football that is unbeatable. All of them have issues that can be exploited, including our buckeyes.
and forget Cooper, shutdown Alabama's running game and it will be a big OSU victory. I'm just not sure we can shutdown their running game. I hope we can limit it.
besides, its not like OSU fans don't go to their games. I go to High School games here in Kentucky, but I don't act like a teenage girl hot for the QB. As long as you go and enjoy the game like a fan and you happen to wear OSU gear, not an issue. Its when you go beyond that, that is what you should not do.
and please, there is not reason to BOLD YOUR TITLE!!! we can see it just fine without it.
yeah, I watched my share of Alabama games. I don't see it. They are not the same team that was 2 years ago. That team I would say could dominate OSU. This team, they aren't really that good at all.
I just don't see it because I don't see one dominant part of their team. Dline? maybe, but they don't do exotic blitzes. Running game? its really good but they aren't as good as they were billed to be. Yeldon isn't "AP" like everyone predicted he would be. Henry is really good but I wouldn't say he is better than Gordon, who we just dominated.
I seriously think Bama is a more talented Wisky team, same style. same abilities. just more talented. I really think if Cardale plays like he did, it will be an ass kicking of Bama. I think it will be a good close game that I don't know who will actually win, but it certainly won't be Bama destroying OSU.
pfft! He said he would put his money on MSU each year. Well, each year he would lose his money because MSU hasn't won a NC.
as much as I would back my buckeyes, if I had to bet money on the same team each year, I would go with Alabama.
and I seriously laugh when people completely miss how much more dominant OSU was vs MSU. Even a blind squirrel could see who the better team was.
Your book reminds me of this Daft Punk song.
I bet he gets drafted because of the talent, but I doubt he goes high because of the concern. Teams will drool over him but they won't waste a top pick just in case.
you can transfer in conference and be on scholarship, just as long as the previous program doesn't block the player from doing so. My guess is UM has a block on any B1G program and some possible others. Ferns could join another B1G program but he wouldn't be able to get a scholarship as long as UM blocks it.
I don't know the actual jargon but this was a big deal when a Wisky basketball player wanted to transfer to another B1G program and he was blocked by Bo Ryan from doing so. or it might have been an OOC team that Bo was blocking him because Bo is a dick!
didn't stop people from questioning him last year when he had "questionable play-calling and the inability to adjust offensively". Doesn't take him going to Houston for that to happen.
and how do you know Kirby Smart doesn't have any conflicts of interest? maybe he is a degenerate gambler who owes a bookie that wants him to throw the game. that would be a conflict of interests.
according to everything that has been said, Brendan wants to go where he wants to go and it has no bearing on him where his brother is.
much like the media, Wikipedia isn't always correct either. Google search further.
A situation that has the potential to undermine the impartiality of a person because of the possibility of a clash between the person's self-interest and professional interest or public interest.

key word is being impartial. Herman CAN be impartial in this situation, hence its not a conflict of interest because he can separate the two.
and to your definition, how is him taking the HC job at Houston "possibly corrupt the motivation of the individual or organization"? I highly doubt Herman would be any less motivated in the playoffs to win and I highly doubt he could corrupt this buckeye team's motivation.
stick around, I'm not the only one.
and yes its about as relevant as your OP. anyone with sense would choose the guy who has been the play caller for the past 3 years over anyone else. Urban doesn't play call. Ed Warriner doesn't play call.
Doesn't take a blog community to answer that one.
Oh wait, since the media is saying it, it must not be true
defensive I see, but I said nothing of the sort.
go ahead and worry about nothing. I'm sure Herman can do two things at the same time better than any one of us. And its Urban's job to worry about his team 24/7. Herman probably has a few other thoughts that run through his mind that are unrelated to OSU.
only if Houston was playing OSU in the upcoming bowl game. That would be a conflict of interests.
I heard he can't drive his car and scratch his nuts at the same time. so obviously coaching the offense at OSU and starting a coaching staff at another program are way too hard for the likes of him! I bet he is horrible when it comes to time management. And that Houston job must have some horrible staff personnel who can't help him while he is busy working on something else. God forbid Herman thinks about something other than beating Alabama. His wife must be seriously unsatisfied during the season.
So because media are assuming he is searching for certain coaches to fill his staff he MUST be thinking about it non stop and can't think about anything else. Show me where it is confirmed he IS worrying about filling his staff right now because what the media says doesn't always mean it IS happening.
I was hoping we could go after Vince Lombardi, his defenses were legendary!
What were his stats in the game? Kid is a phenomenal talent. Can't wait to see who wins with Burrow, Gibson and the others once JT is gone. Its a damn good problem to have!
They were back when OSU was about to play Minnesota. Back then OSU would have been a favorite over everyone but Alabama.
This is solely to do with the QB situation. Vegas doesn't think TCU or Baylor are better teams, they just have concern whether Jones could win these games.
We will find out on Jan 1st!
these are not the droids you are looking for.
that is funny because I thought OSU had tougher standards. I know for a fact that Michigan does, Northwestern does.
and if that was the case, Anderson should have gone to the SEC. Standards tend to not get in the way down there.
I do wonder what is the difference between the Oregon State academic standards and Wisconsin. Oregon State can't be that much easier to get into can it? and its not like Corvalis is a hotbed for recruiting either. LOL
