No need to denigrate one for the other. Remember Tressel not only restored us to national prominence with several big bowl game wins, multiple NC appearances, won a NC, AND he posted an impressive record against TTUN. Rejoice in the memories and always respect the Vest.

It is early and Urban has not lost a regular season Big Ten game, won 1 B1G Title, and has us in a semifinal game. Great start for sure, but he has also lost a bowl game to Clemson, lost to MSU in B1G championship, and lost to VT. We can start comparing him to Tress when he delivers a bowl win, maybe a championship. Since still scarred from the Gator debacle and his smirk on sideline as Troy Smith and the Ginless Bucks got crushed, I'll only love him when he gets a second one...Not far fetched as this team is young and there is plenty of talent coming.

Micheal Thomas stepped it up Wisky game. Corey Smith was too before the terrible call for targeting ejection.  It was great to see so that everything didn't fall one Cardale having to win it. Hopefully, this put enough on film for Bama not to be able to put 9 in box and let EzE and Heurrman loose.

Bigs are very passive. Amir looks like still asleep, Trey not challenging anything.  I like when Tate and Lee comes in, at least they bring energy.  Zone isn't doing anything, need to press and go a little man if just to change it up from time to time. At least hitting 3s or we would be spanked.

Yes I like this idea. Warriner already is co-coordinator and maybe that locks him up a few more years.  Bring in an up and comer QB coach to maybe be co-coordinator.  Maybe Scott Frost gets a better title and a raise.

I am concerned because we have been turning the ball over and defense has been gashed by the run game lately. I survived the Cooper years, relished the Tressel days, no time to get cocky.

I think 15-14-1 starting in '84. Many thanks to the Vest for helping erase my Cooper years deficit and Urban/Tyvis Powell last year tipped the balance. Go Bucks!

Troy Smith is the great _ichigan slayer. JT reminds me of a mash-up of Troy Smith and Joe Germaine. He seems to have the leadership and gamer ability like Troy with the cool hand Luke demeanor and throw before receiver makes his cut ability of Germaine. Can't wait to see how he progresses over the next few years!

Why don't they point the investigative lens and holier than thou judgement towards the coaches and universities that will not let players transfer by releasing from scholarship?  I would like to hear in depth the rationale and defense for Washburn not letting Pierre Desir go be closer to his wife and kids.  Then someone take that rationale and defense apart. What about the  St Joe's coach and Obrien?  Why don't these folks put the microscope on the character of these coaches and admins rather than trash folks like Tressel and publish unsubstantiated innuedo?

I like the Black Keys and Ohio Players suggestions as an addition to keeping Hang on Sloopy as 4th Quarter song . I have thought for a long time that we need some fresh material for the next generation, especially considering many of the  players don't have the same taste in music. If the purpose is to get the crowd and the team jacked up, we need to find some things that are relevant to them, All the lights would be cool for night games for sure,.

I just added a one star review and you weren't kidding, there were some brutal (and funny) ones there.  Wish could have given it a negative star but they make you give it one to comment.  Thanks for the link.

I stopped watching ESecPN unless there is a game I absolutely want to see on it. No sportscenter, no GameDay, no BS analyst stuff, no extra BBall/football games, etc. If everyone stopped watching then ratings go down and hits it in the pocketbook.  Extra bonus is I get to spend more time reading up on articles and gametime stuff here.

Dump SI & ESPN the Magazine. Donating my SI subsciption renewal money to Respect the Basement instead. 
 

Plus don't go to SI or ESPin websites when they post inflammatory buckeye stuff, when you go read it and comment, they get pagehits for advertising money.  They purposefully post stuff to get us fired up because know will drive up traffic.

I've been to every B1G stadium but new Minnesota & Nebraska as well as NC & bowl games. We come in Fridays in RV, stay the entire weekend, and get out and about to look around campuses.

Last year's Iowa people were about the nicest I met anywhere (and the pre-game flyover was awesome). Only one jerk during the game and even the Iowa people were annoyed by him and told him to get a grip. Illini this year were also pretty good people.

Hands down the worst fans we have met on our away game trips were the Penn State 2005 night game.  Pretty much everyone under the age of 50 were jerks the whole weekend and we did not feel safe enough to see their campus. It just ranged from idiots picking fights in stands, large groups of PSU students starting fights in parking lot with small groups, throwing mud at RV, and just acting like general d-bags all around. It pretty much was sad, because the game atmosphere itself was electric and the place was rocking for the whiteout. that part was as impressive at it gets in college football.

Wisky wasn't as bad as PSU.  It was year their band got suspended and while we were going around campus they were no where near as bad as their reputation.

That being said, we have our own reputation for arrogance and probably bring out the worst in others. at home games and when interacting with the other fan base on the road, I probably overcompensate for some obnoxious OSU fans and go out of my way to be polite and friendly.
