I don't see a lot of wins for the B1G this year. With my homer hat on, the wins will be: OSU, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and MSU - I can't see another win out of the bunch, but the OSu and MSU wins alone would be enough to shut critics up

We don't have backups at The Ohio State University, we have more starters

Who was Tom Herman before he came to OSU? He was a good OC, but most people never heard of him. I like Joe Conlin out of Yale, Sterlin Gilbert Easton Illinois. Unfortunately neither of these guys have Ohio ties, and like Herman, would be leaving too soon. A great get would be Bill Legg, but not sure of Urban would be willing to take him from Doc. I think in the end it will be Ed Warriner, and a former OSU offensive lineman will replace him, maybe Jeff Davidson or LeCharles Bentley.

Tressel won national COY a bunch of times, including 2002 for the Buckeyes - But never a B1G coach of the year, lol. I laugh only because it is comical that it hasn't happened in 35 years. I love saying it is a non OSU award, and seeing the other teams fans try to defend their coach winning.

One of the best things about Jim Tressel, was his insistence on his players handing the ball to the official after a touchdown. It was a classy move by the players, and of course the officials loved it. I sure wish Urban would re-implement this policy.

OSU was almost a 2 td underdog, by far the biggest underdog in the BCS NC game. http://www.lasvegassun.com/blogs/talking-points/2014/jan/06/history-betting-bcs-national-championship-game-las/

I still firmly believe JT played pretty good against VaTech. It wasn't him, it was the receivers and their dropped passes, and the offensive lines inexperience that really cost them that game, and of course the defense too. Cardale may have a little more experience, not as talented, but the players around him are so much better than the VaTech game. He'll be fine as long as the coaches don't expect too much of him. For the record, during the PSU game, for those that say we went conservative, well it was opening up that actually hurt us in the 2nd half to the tune of 2 interceptions and 14 points basically given away. To win this game, the Buckeyes have to play tressel ball, and they will, I guarantee it

If TCU wins, I am convinced we as Buckeye fans need to root for Baylor before our big game. Reason being that Baylor and TCU will be tied, and since Baylor won head to head, and is still considered the weakest team, AND the big 12 says they won't crown a conference champion between the two, AND there is no conference championship game, AND Baylor is in reality, the conference champion under a traditional tiebreaker scenario - That they really have no champion. If Baylor loses, this is not the case, and I guarantee you that the Big 12 WILL crown TCU the champ over KSU.

Go Bucks!

"But the problem for the Buckeyes — as it was for the other 12 teams that have tried before — might be in stopping it. "

I'll fix that...

"But the problem for the Buckeyes — as it was for the other 11 of the 12 teams that have tried before — might be in stopping it." Remember Western Illinois?

OSU didn't "shell up" in the second half, Barret threw two interceptions that allowed PSU to get back in the game. If they didn't try to be fancy, they would have won that game easily. I say the opposite of Ross, pgrind it out, and wear the Badgers down, and hit them over the top when they least expect it. With Raekown playing more than Grant, the run defense should be burned less on big runs too...

Wouldn't it be phenomenal if Cardale does so well in this game and the playoffs that we have 3 guys that fighting for a starting job next year? I can see it happening. Let's go Cardale, take care of the football, that's all we need you to do right now...
