After week 2, I started wearing my #10 jersey again on game days. We have played well since.

Seriously though, as a younger buckeye fan, Troy Smith is my all-time favorite. I was lucky enough to attend both the Fiesta Bowl vs. Notre Dame in '06, and that magical game vs michigan the following season. What an amazing run. I will cherish those memories for the rest of my life.

Long live Troy Smith!

At some point, he was still practicing with the team. But I don't know how long that lasted.

DJ, beside the Braxton #HotTake this was a great skully. Proud of you son.

My two favorites: 1) The Burrell workout video. "…Off the ground and there we go. BAM! That’s that real work. 6,000 feet above sea-level. Yall think he a All-American cuz he just woke up that way." Hahaha, I watched that 20X. Someone come to my gym and narrate my workouts like that.

2) Japanese jackpot arcade game. I've never understood the zombies at american casinos that play slots for hours on end with a damn cup in their hand just pushing the same button over and over again. But from that video, Japan is on another level. Even if those animations are taunting you 9/10, it still looks like a blast.

I love the way the rest of our schedule is playing out. We'll likely face wisconsin in the B1G CCG, so having minnesota and indiana on the schedule late should benefit us. Maybe last week was a wake up call. Not that we played poorly, but it's always good for the guys to feel challenged rather than satisfied and complacent.

I hope to see progress this saturday vs. the hoosiers.

Spence was probably our best returning lineman (anyone know if he is still practicing? that seemed ridiculous to me). Jamal Marcus played very well in the Orange Bowl. Losing those two definitely hurt, and now with Steve Miller out, what should have been the strongest unit on the team is certainly thin on depth.

Hopefully, Miller isn't out too long as this is his senior year and he's played well this season.

much better than the dudes on metro, blasting R&B and even worse, singing along...

Comment 12 Nov 2014

This is probably a lazy comparison but I see parallels between Amir and Curtis Grant as far as expectations and actual performance. Let's just hope Anthony Lee turns out to be another Raekwon McMillan.

What's the word on the letters of intent this morning? Curious whether Mitchel follows through on his second commitment.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Minnesota should be ranked. Only two losses on the year, including TCU.

Actually, I just checked their schedule. Not many quality wins to speak of. But still... let's not sleep on the gophers.

Thanks Tim. From what I read, we didn't have two bigs on the court at the same time til late in the second half. Imo, that's not the strength of our roster. But I'll defer to coach matta on defensive strategy.

Comment 10 Nov 2014

The Braxton/Barrett debate is inevitable. I just wish we'd wait til the end of the season to discuss it.

Also, I hope everyone remembers what Braxton has meant to this program. His enrollment at Ohio State was immediately followed by the most tumultuous off season in recent memory. Beyond his ridiculous athleticism and on the field accomplishments, his whole attitude was refreshingly juxtapose the departed, TPryor, helping us forget the whole Tatgate scandal. The kid has never been in trouble with the law, or involved in any controversy. Basically, he was exactly what we needed, when we needed it most. Let's not forget that.

That being said, the best man should start next season and I anxiously look forward to the competition. I hope it brings out the best in both parties.

Comment 10 Nov 2014

Didn't see the game yesterday (thanks BTN), but twitter had plenty of nice things to say about Russel. Let's hope he plays up to expectations this year.

This will probably be addressed later in the week, but any idea why Matta elected to implement a zone defense? Without fail, we play some of the best man defense in the country under Matta. So the transition seems odd.
