It would be nice to see Jamal Marcus and Noah Spence on that depth chart. Before the season Coach Johnson talked about rotating 8 guys at DLine. I'd say we're about 6 deep right now with the starting 4 and Schutt/Frazier.

Sooo many player makes on offense though. What is the over/under on points scored Saturday?

I was looking for that all night against VTech only to be disappointed. Coach Mensa is a smarter man than me, but jet sweeps and maybe bubble screens seem a logical counter to defenses stacking the box.

Best part about those 9 picks is that it's spread over 8 players:
Apple (2), D Grant, Powell, Bell, Smith, Lee, Perry, McMillan

Our defense has been great at forcing turnovers and that will prove key over the course of the season. If Bosa and the DLine can maintain a pass rush, the back 7 has a chance to make a play any time the fall is in the air. I look for the defense to force 3 turnovers tomorrow.

Michigan is our only true rival. But if Ohio State were to play Cincinnati every couple years (football and hoops), they could be a great rival.

I say yes.

Being from cincy, half my HS went to UC and I spent most my breaks partying in Clifton. One of the most fun games I've ever attended (Ohio State included) was the '08 game vs Pitt. The atmosphere was electric and the win clinched a BIg East championship / bid to the Orange Bowl.

We rushed the field only realize there was still time on the clock. So at the beginning of the video, many of us our standing on field, just outside the end zone. On the last play, we rush the field again thinking the play was dead, only to realize it wasn't! Finally, Pitt went down and we got to celebrate. It was madness and the beer was flowing.

It feels like not that long ago, watching signing day videos from the Columbus Dispatch on this class. Actually, it was probably Media Day because a lot of the frosh were being interviewed - including Braxton and Shazier. I remember really liking those guys from the beginning, not based on their HS tape but how they conducted themselves as young guys with the media.

I think this classed turned out alright. Thanks for the write up, Jeremy.

Are practice squads locked at the beginning of the season? Seems odd, TP would not be eligible (for a practice squad, anyway).

Comment 23 Sep 2014

That is an incredibly lucid dream. If it proves true, I will be both astonished and overjoyed. Either way, props for having the stones to put yourself on record.

My dad won the chance to buy Final 4 tickets through the NCAA lottery this year. If we make it to Indy, I'll be there.

I like that second jersey with 'Louisville' spelled out on the front. Adidas usually makes some terrible jerseys (think about those atrocious zumba basketball jerseys two seasons ago), but this one is good.

Some NFL players should watch that Bill Burr stand-up at the 25:20 mark.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

That Pete Carroll gif will never fail to put a smile on my face.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

Minus the role model remark, MTROTB is correct regarding the Big 10 drug policy. It sucks but let's face reality. He will most likely have to transfer out of conference if he wants to continue his college career.

I don't know Noah's situation and I won't judge. Just hope he rebounds.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Right. I'll feel good about this commitment once it's faxed in on Signing Day. Honestly, I hope Thad and co. are still recruiting his position just to be ready.

Anybody know whether beer will be sold at the Navy game?

We got DJ and Chris in the mix. Who else from the 11W staff wants to throw down?
