Also under Bruce at OSU were Pete Carroll, Nick Saban (who was fired), Dantonio, Glenn Mason, and the lesser known Dom Capers.
As the backup, he wasn't expected to carry on 1st and 2nd down, and when he did it suprised OSU, and he did really well. When Alabama NEEDED Henry on 3rd down, when OSU was expecting it, he was never there, well maybe he was once...
Feel bad for Sibley. He wants to be a Buckeye, committed early, and never wavered. I understand the angles of recruiting, but there has to be a point where you say, "Look, #10 ranked player, you have to committ now, you can't wait until signing day or there is a chance you may have to grayshirt because others have been committed to us for a long time". This may cause OSU to lose a recruit, but at least it is honest.
Other then Eb and his doppleganger twin who passed him the ball - Is it me, or do all rubgy players look alike?
The 3 point line was only 19 9 back then too. This one game proved how much 3 point shooting can beat even the best of teams. The next year, the NCAA changed the 3 point line distance. I agree with you, OSU was the better team, but Florida hit the important long distance shots every time it needed them.
No offense, but you never know what may happen. I can remember the Big Red Machine in the 70's losing to their triple A club in Louisville, at least once, maybe a couple times. This was the BIG RED MACHINE. Not convinced? Are you old enough to remember the college hockey players in the 1976 Olympics going up against arguably the greatest hockey team of all time? The Russians didn't have Pro Hockey, so everybody was an "amateur". Still not convinced? Are you old enough to remember the original NBA Dream Team playing a group of college all stars and losing? This wasn't an NBA team, this was the greatest team assembled of all time, one that walked through the olympic games, they were beat, by a bunch of college players. Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, Football - These are TEAM games, and anything can happen with bad chemistry. I tend to agree with you, but the instances noted above, were the best in the business, not the lowly Cleveland Browns, anything can happen - I wouldn't put any money on it though.
58Buckeye: By your argument, Do you remember who Golden State lost to last week (Lakers), & how bad that team lost to The Cavs (last night)? I tend to agree that the Browns would win easily, but really dude, that was a bad example of a game played in poor weather. Did you see Bama running the ball at will against MSU? No. They were forced to pass to beat MSU, and if the weather was the same as OSU/MSU that night, the game would have been exactly the same as it was for OSU, down to the last play of the game.
As much as I want to like it, I can't like Land of the Wolves. Seriously, that seems to close to Wolverines. Who thought this up?
Dear "theohiostatefootball" - Would you please get a better camera? Surely you can afford a better one.
Yes, and Michigan State never sniffed the NC game in either of those years, or any year for as long as I've been alive. I was born a Buckeye, always have been, always will be. MSU has been playing Urban Meyer tough, but to win two out of 4, hardly makes you someone's bitch.
Ohio State is nobody's bitch in football. An example of a team that has become a bitch to another. UM vs Ohio State, 13 losses out of 15 years - That my friends, is a teams bitch. Either way, I don't give a damn about the whole state of Michigan.
In basketball yes, they are. In football, that is laughable, MSU has 7 wins over OSU in the last 40 years. Are you a closet MSU fan?
You make some valid points, but if we listen to you, and it were so EASY, why does only one team have more B1G wins than OSU?
I agree, so many games this year, we would get 1 or 2 passes, and up the shot goes. Today, I watched them pass it around 6 or more times until they found the open shot. Today was a team win...
You don't have to show passion to be great - Think Leonard or Duncan.
Orlando still looks like he is in game shape - He would have been a great hire for OL coach. He'd show the linemen how a pancake is made.
I don't think he can run a 4.24, but he could be in the money (100k) with a top 3 finish.
Lol Hue Jackson. As a Buckeye and Bengal fan - Good riddance from the Bengals
True, but it was bound to go up with Tate (51%) out, and Giddens (38%) not shooting any. The other guys are close to 80% combined (loving .754, diop .816, lyle .692, williams .800, thompson .768)
Not too many teams could survive a (14-22) 3 point barrage like that. Change that to a normal 3 point game for MSU, say 9-22 (40%), and we have a completely different ballgame.
Now that OSU hater Hue jackson is gone, they might actually get a couple buckeyes
Hard to replace his overall game, that guy is a baller, on defense and offense. This will allow OSU to tinker a little with Kam/Giddens and Mitch - It might surprise MSU tonight.
Unless they trade up, NE doesn't have a first round pick this year (Deflategate). I'd love to see Braxton on the Bungles, opposite AJ Green.
