This week the major Notre Dame homer at my office came up and asked how I was holding up and told me he knew what I was going through since the Irish had to endure the loss of Everett Golson last year.  

I said, "well I'm trying to be optimistic and I think we'll be alright, but if JT Barrett is as bad as Tommy Rees, we're doomed."

Brandon's injury is almost as devastating as Braxton's.

Almost.

This is great news. In 2015 OSU will play Kentucky and in 2016 they'll play UCLA on neutral courts. Throw in the B1G/ACC games and this series with UConn, and it looks like the non-conference will be pretty decent the next couple seasons.

The good news for Ohio State is that this guy doesn't coach the Buckeyes.

They don't have to make that decision yet. They can just wait and see how things go with Barrett and Jones. I imagine Collier will dress for games and "be ready", but I doubt he plays and I think he'll still redshirt.

 I am willing to bet he is further along than Braxton was in his Sophmore year...

You may be right. Of course Braxton was thrown into things his freshman year thinking he was gonna back-up TP and had to deal with suspended teammates, the loss of Tress, having Fickell as head coach, & Bollman as OC. Not an ideal situation.

I like the idea as long as the last question for every recruit is "When do you plan on committing to Ohio State?" :)

1.) I don't like Calipari and I think he's shadier than an oak tree, but I'm not sure you can fault a guy for using the system to his advantage. People forget that it's the NBA's rules that are causing all these one and done's. Calipari is bringing in the best players he can to help UK win, and the best players happen to be kids who won't be in college long. 

2.) I have several IU loving friends who are done with Crean, which is hilarious cause just a few years back they were telling me he was a better coach than Matta and one of the best in the country...

So you have to lie to a kid to get them to come to West Virginia?

Seems like Dana's admitting to something I think most of us already knew.

Let's be honest; this is Rod's last shot. If things don't click for him now, they never will. In my opinion he's in the same boat as Curtis Grant. It's now or never for them cause there's younger guys who are hungry to step up and show they can play.

I wish Rod the best and hope he steps up and seizes every opportunity that's given to him, but I have trouble seeing him have bigger numbers than Elliott. Plus the way it sounds, it will be running back/playmaker by committee this season.

I would imagine if Alabama agreed to play @ Cincy, the game would be played at Paul Brown Stadium and called a "home" game for Cincy. I can't see Bama saying, "Yeah, we'll play you in your 35,000 capacity stadium."  I had heard part of the agreement with playing a home and home with Penn State a few years back was not only the tradition of both programs but that PSU could guarantee a huge turnout for the game.
