I've been a student at OSU since 2012, and a Buckeye for life from Hilliard, OH.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: OSU defeats Purdue in OT in 2012. It was my freshman year at OSU and my oldest brother, an alumnus of OSU, came back and attended the game with me in South stands. Not only was there an exciting finish (Guiton for the win and Urban pumped up before Carmen) but it was at that game where I realized how truly special it is to be a part of buckeye nation. The atmosphere of the game combined with my brother's visible emotion gave me the experience of a lifetime.

Obviously the B1G East is made up of more competitive teams so we'd get the more difficult (conference) schedule than them almost by default.  However, it's also convenient for OSU to miss playing Wisconsin or Nebraska during the regular season both last season and the upcoming one.  Minnesota isn't bad by any means but I'd prefer not to play them and Illinois in consecutive years.  Definitely looking forward to next year's 9-game conference schedule with 3 inter-division opponents, which should help prevent these situations.

To me this article seems excessively negative.  5 year bowl ban?  No.  3rd or 4th place in the Big Ten?  No.  Maybe things wouldn't be at their current level with our recruiting success and national championship, but hell, maybe they would.  Tressel was no slouch.  I'll back up BassDropper's comment above and reference that we had just won the Sugar Bowl over an SEC opponent to end the 2010 season.  Buckeyes were trending up until tatgate, and with Tress there the effects of tatgate and the 2011 season would've been reduced imo.

Here's something interesting in the Spencer pass play that I hadn't thought about before: 

On the normally run jet sweeps, the QB would pass the ball forward to the H-Back in case of a botched hand-off, so instead resulting in a fumble, the exchange would either be a complete or incomplete pass.  On this play, however, they needed to hand the ball off to Marshall in order to let Spencer pass the ball.  Had they done their normal jet sweep, Spencer's pass would've been the 2nd forward pass on the play and therefore illegal.  The awareness of the OSU staff to make this minor, yet crucial change in play design shows incredible attention to detail.  A lot of people would most likely have overlooked it.  That's why many staffs will consult with an official about specific plays, not for opinions or anything, but to simply review with them if their plays are legal or illegal and why.  Kudos to Urban and his staff for their attention to detail and rule knowledge, especially if they didn't consult an official.

To be honest I've never really thought that the Schott does much to aid the atmosphere of college basketball games.  Don't get me wrong, it's a great facility, but to me it just doesn't give off the same vibe that many of the other great facilities across the country do.  To me, it is a little too fancy, more welcoming to the old money crowd than one for crazed college students and fans.  I would really like to have known what it was like to see a game at St. John Arena, maybe not as comfortable and you can correct me if I'm wrong, but more welcoming to a traditional college atmosphere.

I agree that winning is step 1 though.

Power goes to Carlos, but speed goes to Zeke by a wider margin.  So I voted for Zeke initially.  But I'm changing my vote to Carlos because of the patience he runs with.  There are a million other categories you could use but to me these are the big ones.

*desperately tries to think of a witty Sloopy pun*

Comment 11 May 2015

I agree, and I think it should be made clear that the Brady punishment is proportional to the act committed while the Rice punishment was nowhere near severe enough.  NOT that Brady's punishment was too harsh, which is what some people may deduce from this comparison, sadly enough.

Comment 07 May 2015

Gotta say Tom Hamilton and Gus Johnson are my favorite individuals -- if they could somehow form a team there wouldn't be a single dull moment in any game-- but as for duos that currently exist, I'd go with Joe Buck and (now) Harold Reynolds

Least favorite- Doug Gottlieb and anyone who agrees to work with him.

Great link, thanks for sharing!

Interesting to see it doesn't have the Rod Smith signing recorded yet though...hopefully nothing fell through with it

I understand why some fans would hate them in football, being one of the top tradition-rich programs in the country.  But when talking about basketball there should be very little reason to hate them more than Kentucky or Duke.  Can a program that introduced Austin Carr to the world really be all that bad?

Watching Gareon play in HS, I'm not sure why he wasn't considered as a WR to be honest.  He and Devin Smith both came from Massillon, and as far as my observations go, I've never seen someone adjust to run under a deep ball like Conley.  I mean the dude had a second gear like no other that he could just reach into his pocket and grab anytime he wanted.  It was quite literally impossible to overthrow him.  Obviously this was HS ball so a bit different from the college game, and he's been away from the offensive side of the ball for a while now.  But this was just a thought.

Not sure Warinner will want to give him up, but his best chance to see the field again might be at tackle.

...Yeah, right tackle.  Didn't you read the article? 

For some reason, that didn't post in italics.  It was supposed to, I get what you meant
