I've gotta be honest with you guys. I have been a huge hater of ESPN's biased coverage of college football until probably the past 2 years where I just accepted it and it didn't bother me...however this year, I've actually noticed that ESPN has given some love to the Buckeyes. Even Mark May has talked about how good JT Barrett has played recently (jaw hits floor). Danny Kannell is probably the most outspoken about his feelings towards the SEC biased and it's nice to hear. If ESPN bothers you that much, just turn on BTN at 11AM EDT every Saturday, they've got a pre-game show too. SEC bias or not, College Gameday is something I will always look forward to watching and it's just part of what I believe is the season of fall. The person who bothers me the most on ESPN is Lou Holtz, you can't even understand the guy and his Notre Dame bias trumps any SEC bias I've seen lately.

Joey Bosa's down the hall, faster than a cannonball

Yeah nevermind that doesn't quite roll off the tongue...but +1 for the reference

Comment 16 Oct 2014

I'm completely okay that Gary Parrish ranked Nebraska ahead of's incredible what Tim Miles has done.

I'm so excited to watch D'Angelo Russell play. I know it's embarassing for me to be fired up about an 18 year old kid putting a round object into a basket, BUT I DONT CARE!

You have a point about "Potential...which is what you haven't done yet." But what is there to be excited about? EVERYTHING. This team has 3 freshman in the ESPN Top 25. They also have Kameron Williams coming off an injury who is supposedly a great 3 point shooter, if I recall he shot around 50% his senior year of HS. Also, Anthony Lee! A big man who can score. 

Yeah, Craft is gone but Shannon Scott is going to fill that role. His game against Michigan in the B1G Tournament was hopefully a sign of things to come, he was amazing. LaQuinton Ross is gone, yeah he had a lot of potential but last year he was a Brick Laying machine. Lenzelle couldn't hit the ocean from the beach. 

I'm only worried about the leadership aspect of things, but how can you not be excited?

Comment 15 Oct 2014

We will at least be in the discussion. I voted yes because eternal optimism.

What could help is if Notre Dame beats FSU but then loses to Northwestern on November 15th. Completely forgot about that game, I will be a huge Wildcat fan on that day.

Comment 14 Oct 2014

I put very confident. We need to worry about Rutgers, Penn State and Illinois first...BUT:

It wasn't that they gave up 30+ points to Purdue, it was the way it happened. I'm very aware of the West Lafayette voodoo, but Purdue just kept throwing swing passes and it was working every time. It was shocking. 

This game comes down to Tom Herman. He needs to call a great game. The great part about being a fan is that we are allowed to look ahead!

I think my least favorite BTN'er is Jim Miller...he's the biggest Michigan State homer I ever did see

After this Football edition of Chernobyl, Ann Arbor will resemble the wasteland of West Lafayette

Comment 05 Oct 2014

We can't overlook Rutgers Penn State or Illinois, but that doesn't mean I don't expect the Buckeyes to win those games convincingly. I hope we don't try to "manball" Michigan State, because that's not going to work. We've got so many weapons on offense, so let's use them creatively. Pull out some plays that aren't going to be seen on tape.

Comment 02 Oct 2014

The medical staff had a great week of practice, but they just didn't execute. We love these 115 kids, the graduation rate is great. We're excited to play Rutgers.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Moderately worried...I don't know the stats but didn't they get like 200 yards of offense on only 3 plays? I hate to sound like Tim Beckman but I thought the defense played well despite those 3 plays. If we give up 200 yards on 3 plays to Maryland, sign me up for the OUR PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF level of concerned.

I don't know about the rest of you, but when you attended one of the Ohio schools that wasn't Ohio State, it kind of makes the games against in-state schools more meaningful? interesting? Not entirely sure what word I'm looking for.

Even if we lose to Cincinnati (which I do not believe we will for the record), it still won't be as bad as losing to Dayton in basketball. The in-state schools get one win against OSU and all of a sudden they are the best program in the state. It's that mentality that makes me thoroughly enjoy watching Ohio State football and basketball crush their Ohio siblings.
