Interesting that were scheduled to play both Texas and Notre Dame in 2022 and 2023. My bet is that one of those games gets moved between now and then.

Its pretty lame that we keep just reusing the same alternate uniforms.  For a few years there we were getting new ones each year but now we just use the same ones over and over.

Those chrome ones are fine and all but they're not really that special.  They're basically just different enough to be called alternates but don't really bring anything new or different to the table. Casual viewers probably won't even notice them.

You would think we could get Nike to design some new and different ones by now.

We didn't drop because of the navy game. We dropped because Braxton Miller is out for the season. If that that had been known before the first poll we probably would have started out somehwere around 12

I think that depending on how this year ends Decker could be enticed to return by the loaded roster for next year. With Braxton or JT distributing to a very deep and more experienced group of playmakers behind a veterain offensive line the Buckeyes could be scary good on offense next year. Throw in a more experienced and deeper defense and the Buckeyes could be set up for huge things next season.

However the schedule listed at the bottom here doesn't seem to have the Buckeye game so perhaps that wont work.

Heres one possible thing to check out.  CBSSports.com has a service called ULive that streams college sports live.   It costs 17.95 a month but theres an offer there for one week free so perhaps you can take advantage of that just to watch the OSU/Navy game.

There's really only 2 possible candidates for most catches - Dontre Wilson and Devin Smith. I'm excited about the potential of guys like Corey Smith, Michael Thomas, Jalin Marshall, Johnny Dixon and even the return of Evan Spencer but those guys have their work cut out just to earn a starting spot let alone actually lead the team in receptions for the entire season. Dontre and Devin however are already established as major pieces of the offense. Dontre underneath and Devin over the top is going to be a major part of Ohio States passing offense this year. The one of them that most improves the opposite part of their game will likely lead the team in receptions.

Isn't Braxton still recovering from shoulder surgery?
Comment 25 Jun 2014
Did you remove Jamal Marcus and Jayme Thompson? I'm pretty sure we're at the right number now but I'd have to go back and check.
Comment 25 Jun 2014
Shifting players to last years recruiting class only helps you get around the 25 signers per year limit. However there is still a hard cap of 85 total scholarships. That you can't get around with creative math, only by removing players.
Comment 17 Jun 2014
I always laugh when fans get upset with a player for holding out. If Boone wasn't playing well, was chronically injured, or just overpaid then the team wouldn't hesitate to cut him well before his contract is over. It happens all the time and people barely bat an eye. If teams aren't expected to live up to the terms of a contract then why should the players be?
Comment 16 Jun 2014
You pretty much just defined "hater" in sports - Actively rooting against a particular team or player. Unless they're playing against a team your a fan of or if them losing benefits your teams standings then rooting for them to lose just because you don't like them or the guys on their team is what being a "hater" is. Not that there's necessarily anything wrong with that. Watching teams you hate lose can be fun but don't get upset when people use the correct word to describe it.

Bennett has been getting a lot of prase in almost all the early draft stuff I've seen for next year. I think he's a more elite player than even a lot of Buckeye fans realizr
Comment 11 Jun 2014
I would be very surprised if Curtis Samuel was actually our real #2 RB next year. I see him being more of a "novelty" player the way Dontre Wilson was last year. There will be some packages designed for him but he won't be a consistent part of the offense yet.
Comment 21 May 2014
Do you really think that in a lottery with major market powers like Boston and the LA Lakers, and in a draft with several potential franchise players, that they would rig the lottery to give the top pick to Cleveland? That doesn't make any sense at all
Comment 14 May 2014

 I don't mean to be a downer but Eli Apple is not our top cornerback right now.  He's more like #4 - behind Doran Grant, Armani Reeves, and Gareon Conley.  If Apple can rise up past those guys on the depth chart then more power to him, but he's not there yet.

Comment 14 May 2014
Fwiw, SI.com just did a 2015 mock draft and they list Michael Bennett at #16 in the first round. They compare him to Aaron Donald out of Pitt from this year. http://nfl.si.com/2014/05/13/2015-nfl-mock-draft-cedric-ogbuehi/3/
Comment 09 May 2014

I don't think Heuerman really has a shot at the first round.  He's an NFL guy for sure but he's not really the type of super athletic receiving TE that usually goes in the first round.

Michael Bennett has a good shot if he has a good year. With a strong year at nose tackle this year he'll have proven himself at 3 positions along the line, and NFL teams love that kind of versatility

Braxton of course will be heavily debated and needs a to take some big strides.  He has the talent, but it's so hard to tell what QBs will go where - especially this far out from the draft.  

Spence and Decker would be the juniors most likely to make the jump and both of them play positions that have a lot of value in the first round.  If you're a top 5 OT or pass rusher you've got a great shot at going in the first round.

Other guys who could step up to first round level with huge years are Devin Smith and Dorian Grant - They both have all the physical tools that NFL teams look for and they play positions with a lot of draft value.  They've both shown flashes of greatness, especially Smith, but they need to be much more consistent.  If one of them puts it all together and has a huge year he could see himself shooting up draft boards before next spring.
