Just a few guys that are still going to be suiting up this season:

Joey Bosa, Noah Spence, Michael Bennett, Adolphus Washington, Raekwon McMillan, Doran Grant, Vonn Bell, Tyvis Powell, Ezekiel Elliott, Dontre Wilson, Curtis Samuel, Taylor Decker, Jeff Heuerman, Devin Smith, plus many, many more

Just a few guys that are still going to be coaching the guys above:

Urban Meyer, Tom Herman, Ed Warriner, Larry Johnson, Chris Ash, Luke Fickell, Kerry Coombs, Stan Drayton, plus many more

So no, the season is not lost. This is still The Ohio State University football team. There is still an embarrassment of riches. Yes, every game just got tougher. But we will still have, at the very least, a puncher's chance in every single game. And this team now has a chip on it's...gulp...shoulder.

I would also add Josh Heupel, Craig Krenzel, Chris Leak, and Matt Flynn to the list of QB's who were not world-beaters by any stretch of the imagination but still managed to lead their teams to national championships. The one common thread to the teams they played on was good (sometimes great) coaching and very good (sometimes great) defenses. In my opinion, this season will go as far as our defense and our coaching staff can take us. The offense needs to make the most of the opportunities that they are presented with and find a way to get the ball into the hands of their play makers (think Clarett, Gamble, and Jenkins from '02). Barrett will need to grow up in a hurry and I don't have very high expectations for him this year, but I think he could another special name in recent Buckeye lore like Braxton, Troy, and Terrelle by the time he is finished here.

Agreed. Reading these and other posts would make you think that Beanie was made of glass, which just isn't true. Plus, if he would have had his senior year, we'd be talking about the second leading rusher in school history. My vote goes to # 28.

Derek Combs, Drew Carter and Matt Keller are a few that come to mind. And Doug Datish

Good get for Sparty. Hate to miss on him but glad that he is at least going to get a few wins over Michigan in his career.

Here are the match ups for each of those games:

VTech @ OSU

Georgia Tech @ VTech

Vanderbilt @ UGA

Notre Dame @ FSU

Stanford @ Oregon

In my opinion the highest profile games are our game, the FSU game, and the Oregon game. Oregon has the best change of losing IMO. Therefore, I think it will come down to either OSU/FSU as the "best" visit.

In simplest terms, getting your black stripe removed is a rite of passage and makes you an "official" member of the team. It is also a literal achievement as well. Each new Buckeye has the scarlet stripe on their helmet covered with black tape. Black stripes will be removed as early as fall camp and could last into next year (see Eli Apple). Although the criteria for having a stripe removed isn't set in stone, it typically happens due to effort, leadership, and execution on the field.

Let's just do away with the written word on this site and communicate only through gifs and video. I think we can do it.

Comment 28 Jul 2014

I've been to four OSU/PSU games in Happy Valley (and a few more as a "neutral" fan) since I only live 45 minutes away. All of the OSU games were white outs, so needless to say I stuck out like a sore thumb. I will say, it is MUCH easier if OSU is leading/wins so it's a good thing they usually do. I know this sounds backwards, but Penn State fans are the biggest bunch of fair weather fans I've ever been around. When the get whooped, they are eerily quiet. However, when they win (like they did in '05 when I was there) they will call you out like crazy and they are brutal. I even got punched in the back of the head a few times walking out of the stadium after that game.

Also, I've never sat in the visitor's section, I've always been out with the PSU masses. I usually go with a buddy of mine that is a PSU fan, so that may help to act as a buffer for me. They will definitely try to ruffle your feathers before the game though so your best bet is to find a Buckeye tailgate and hang out there. The good news is there are plenty of Buckeye fans to be found, and like I said, they are easy to spot among all the white.

Personally, this whole thread has given me a new outlook on life here. "We're through the looking glass here people. White is black. And black is white"

Don't judge a book by it's cover Tenn. I've found that many of the great threads on site happen under the guise of some random title.

If I'm remembering correctly, the "foreign guy with terrible grammar" was B1G_Deal, which if you look above, was one of 9er's alias'. Therefore, his personalities were having conversations with each other.

Just wait until it's discovered that Hove and Buckeyesvstheworld are actually the same user and both accounts are padding each others helmet sticker totals. People will be rioting in the streets

That's like Kaiser Solze level shit by 9Route et al. But even more remarkable CIA-type work by Jason. I'm a little surprised BassDropper wasn't one of those user names on the blacklist.
