Yeah I wasn't 100% sure so I looked it up. From the NCAA rulebook:

12.8.3 Criteria for Determining Season of Competition. 

12.8.3.1 Minimum Amount of Competition.

Any competition, regardless of time, during a season in an intercollegiate sport shall be counted as a season of competition in that sport

Well I think it depends if that coach wants to lose to Ohio State every year or not

Well medical redshirts must be applied for and then granted, so if he would be "able to play" around the 9-10 game mark and was then purposely held out, I would think his redshirt application would be denied rather swiftly. I think it would have to be a legitimate season ending injury to get one. That being said, who really knows for sure, the redshirt process seems to be one of those things that is decided in a dimly-lit, smoke-filled room somewhere

Also have to mention Kenny G's comeback against Purdue

And David Boston's punt return against Pitt with only 8 Buckeyes on the field

Andy Katzenmoyer destroying Korby Jones

Gamble's pick-six vs Penn State

Beanie's spin in the backfield then take it to the house in The Game

Miller to Smith heave to beat Wisconsin

Shazier's one-on-one goal line stand against Ball to keep him from breaking the TD record (which he would get later in the game)

Just be outside with a clear view of the southern sky...you'll see and hear the collision.
Comment 11 Sep 2014

I was a junior in high school. I was walking down the hall between 1st and 2nd period and heard a few other kids talking about it. Some of the teachers tried to go through the rest of the day like nothing had happened, others let us watch the TV coverage for the 40+ minutes we were in their class. As Hodge said, very surreal.

Also, I was at ground zero in 2007, and while it was not much more than a big construction site, it was still very emotional to be standing there and thinking about what happened just a few years before.

Guys we are 0-1 the last 1 time we played football, let's just stop playing!!

Comment 09 Sep 2014

You are correct in that it was 3 players total. Urban's first class (Noah Spence's class) would have had three more players if we were able to keep 85 scholarships. Then the rest of his classes would have been the same, i.e. only taking as many players as we have graduating/leaving.

However, I would argue that the scholarship reduction does have some sort of impact, especially this year more than the previous years because those three extra players would now be true juniors and/or redshirt sophomores and this teams could use some of those older, more experienced guys. BUT, on the other side of the coin, I also don't think that's they only reason (or even one of the most significant reasons) why we are in the position we are in.

Dude, just jiggle it. If that doesn't work, put it in reverse and then try starting it. Also, make sure you have enough room to get up to 88 mph and double check that the flux capacitor is clean.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Yeah Meyer's comments didn't sit well with me either. I wonder if Kent State comes out on first down with a punt return formation if we will audible out of our play call and bring Cameron on to boot it away. After all, seems like we are letting the defense determine what we want to run on offense.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Penn State fans remind me more of a mob cult, than sports fans. This is what happens when people worship false idols.

Do you have an I.P. address in the Philadelphia area by chance?

Comment 08 Sep 2014

My first post since Friday as I've learned to steer clear of the open-threads and forum posts during and after the games. It's bad enough when we win and still look sloppy (i.e. #FireFickell) but it's just plain nuclear when we lose. Many of the comments/posts I read where so absurd and redundant that I just unplugged for a while. I too wish we could vote on forum posts again because this site turned into a complete joke over the weekend.
