It's so beautiful seeing that long list of offensive linemen on the depth chart, most of whom are on scholarship and actually viable options.  It seems like there were times during the Tressel/Bollman era where the list would have been barely half that long.

Based on the comments we've heard from players, it sounds like Vrabel's coaching methods will fit better with the NFL. Not saying he wasn't a great coach for us and didn't get great results, but I think his move will end up working out better for all parties involved.

I noticed that everyone who listed other coaches ahead of Matta didn't mention Beilein.  I hate to say it, but I'd have to put him ahead of Matta at the moment.  He just seems so adept at making the most of the the roster that he has.  I'd say he's tops in the Big Ten, with Izzo and Matta tied for second.  I'd put all three of them in the top ten nationally, which says a lot about the strength of Big Ten basketball.

Seems bizarre that Froholdt committed to Arkansas of all places.  Is he really looking forward to playing for Bielema and getting his butt kicked by Alabama, A&M, and Auburn every year?

It's a good problem to have, as it means Urban's hiring great assistants.  I'd much rather have this problem than the problem of having coordinators that nobody else goes after because they're worthless (Walrusball, anyone?).

Great stuff.  It's a shame that OL is a position that really needs to operate as a unit, unlike the DL where we can rotate a lot of guys in to give them in-game experience.

This will hurt us next year when we lose these four seniors and have to bring in some very green players as starters.  It would help if we could build some more sizeable leads this year so that we would be comfortable with the drop off that would come with bringing in a younger guy or two to give them some experience.

I imagine your statement that Adriatico's is the best pizza on or around campus is going to start a heated discussion.

Comment 27 Aug 2013

Yea, that's exactly what I mean.  That way I could just do a ctrl+F and search for 52-14, instead of also having to search for 52 to 14, OSU 52 Buffalo 14, etc...

Comment 27 Aug 2013

52-14, Bucks

Also, I'd like to propose that we standardize on a format for these score predictions, so that it's easy to do a quick search and make sure your prediction hasn't been made already.  It seems like XX-YY is the most used format, so how about everyone uses that?

I had a senior design class with Antonio my last quarter at OSU.  On the last day of class, our professor had everyone in the class go around and tell everyone what their plans were after graduation.

 

When it came around to Antonio and he said he was going to play football for the Colts, the professor was stunned.  He had no idea the whole time.

Eh, it seems that Beanie is still the starter and has gotten about as many carries as Williams.  Stats-wise, Williams seems to be a bit more productive, but not much.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone has watched the Cardinals play this year at all.  Does he still look like his old self?

Comment 25 Sep 2012

So what's Beanie's issue in Arizona?  Have all these minor injuries taken a toll on his running ability, or is their offensive line just not very good?
