Forget this bogus administration! Make The Shoe the loudest crowd in football Saturday night.
This is just unbelievable. The administration at Ohio State has done everything in their power to subdue the atmosphere at football games. They have basically removed all tailgating from right outside The Shoe. They turned our regular home jerseys into some kind of Nebraska/Wisconsin hybrid by removing the grey stripes. We have THE most expensive tickets in college football and now no standing during games! Its an absolute joke. Buckeye football has gone full corporate.
We need an administration that understands the tradition of this program. Bring back the iconic grey stripes and don't take advantage of Buckeye Nations passion by squezzing every dime they're willing to pay out of them for tickets.
The coaches must have moved him from tackle to guard after the spring. He was struggling in pass protection at tackle. I hope the light comes on for him at guard.
Nessler, Blackledge and Holly Rowe on the call. They're one of my favorite announcing teams. Can't wait until Saturday!
Yeah I cringed on that play. There was also a play where Mike Thomas caught a ball over the middle and was immediately hit low, I cringed on that play. Glad everyones ok.
I'd love to see us come out in a throwback uniform from the Eddie George days. Thats the best Buckeye uniform. Grey stripes on the sleeves and the shiny pants.
I thought overall it was a decent opening weeking for the Big Ten. Rutgers started it off with a big win in Seattle over Wazzu. Penn State got a big win over UCF.
Wisconsin really let the Big Ten down by blowing that lead. Idk how Melvin Gordon only gets two carries in the second half.
I'm happy with this win. That was a good Navy team. They have impressive looking players. Size on both lines and some good athletes. With as many young guys as we played, I'm really happy to get out of Baltimore with a victory.
The offensive line didn't have a good start but they started to take over the game late. We had great interior blocking on Ezekiel Elliots TD run and I thought it was a great sign that we were able to keep the ball on the ground and seal the game with our last scoring drive.
I feel confident saying that is the best Navy team since the Staubach days. They aren't the typical undersized players that you see at the service academies. They have size on both lines and they have athletes. I was really impressed with them.
I'm really happy to get by a good Navy team with a win. Some young guys gained some great experience and the team gained some confidence. On to Va Tech!
The SEC Network folks need to wake up. Ohio State is the most passionate fan base in college football. Buckeye Nation takes over another stadium tomorrow.
1. Wisconsin over LSU. That would be huge for the "narrative".
2. WVU over Alabama. I'm from WV and anytime Alabama loses I'm happy.
3. Utah State over Tennessee. The Vols are becoming a pain in our neck on the recruiting trail.
4. Oklahoma State over FSU.
5. Boise State over Ole Miss.
Here's to making The Shoe the loudest stadium in the history of football for the Virginia Tech game and every game after that!
Our home jerseys since 2006 have looked like Wisconsin, Nebraska or Georgia. Its a joke. I don't know whose idea it was to strip the iconic grey stripes but it was a bad one.
Amen! Bring back the Grey Stripes!!
He just made a twitter and the only coach hes following is Tim Hinton. Fwiw.
Its offical, he's announcing tomorrow afternoon. Fingers crossed that he picks the good guys!
I saw an interview Van Jefferson did with Rivals after his high school opener. He sounds like he's leaning towards Tenneessee. He did talk about how Ohio State was his team growing up. Said he could announce next week.
I actually like the idea of Scarlet smoke as a one time thing for the Virginia Tech game. That would look awesome at night.
Read the Winners Manuel sometime. Its filled with great stuff that Tress taught all of his teams. He was interested in making his players better people on and off the field before it became cool.
Just a man? Im going to go out on a limb and say the rest of us aren't thought of as father figures for hundreds of former players. The things Tress did in the community and for his players outweighs leaving out information to the NCAA about something that should'nt be against the rules in the first place.
We need Torrance Gibson to commit to the good guys already and become a leader for this class.
Tennessee is becoming a pain in our side on the recruiting trail. I would absolutely love to see Chuckie Keaton and Utah State go into Knoxville and beat them week 1!
He needs to commit already. The longer he takes to commit, the more nervous I get about his recruitment.
We treated the 1 vs 2 game against ttun as the national championship. So much went into winning that game that the team felt they were already national champions when it was over. The players were never fully focused on beating Florida and Urbans Gators fed them some humble pie.
It also didn't help losing Ted Ginn. A lot of people say Troy gained weight on the banquet circuit after the mich game.
Not sure I've heard the Troy and Gonzo girlfriend rumors.
2006 was still a special year despite the dissapointing ending. We beat Texas in a 1 vs 2 game in Austin and got some revenge from 2005. We won arguably the biggest chapter of The Game and not to mention Troy Smith brought home the Heisman.
