Yes, HTC. Those were for Manhattan salary numbers. 

Was recently interviewed for a job in San Francisco and even though cost of living is about the same (excluding home buying), salaries are still $20-25K less.

Agree. Unfortunate but true. They gained a nice flow with him on the bench. That translated to a lead. Think the prudent thing would've been to wait until that flow was disrupted or they lost the lead. 

Sometimes the best move is to keep the best player on the bench. Don't think the D could've been any tighter in the front court and the O was certainly more in rhythm.

At the end, losing the 2 games against, inarguably, your best competition of the season leaves a bad taste. If we would've lost MSU and won Clemson, I think I'd be satisfied overall. Then again, it's hard to have satisfaction when the defense is giving up an ungodly amount of yards...at least to someone who still believes a strong D is legacy that should be a part of any Buckeyes football team. Onward to next season and better things.

Rich Rod was Michigan's Tyrone Willingham. Far more polarizing yet really never given a fair shake. 

Comment 21 Dec 2013

Agree. He gave SO much this year. And I think it would be fair to say if they would've called his number more (many games where it was deserved, especially in the first half), he would've put up bigger numbers. But those other guys were stellar 2+ seasons plus. So emotionally yes. Ask me in a year, I'd say no.

I started towards the "Confident" button yet felt the Lords of Jinx breaking out in a smile and doing wrist exercises ready to throw a spell over the Bucks. Retreated back to "Nervous".

Amen to that! I'd love every year that we are the one shit stain on the record. Seeing hope continually dashed is like country fried steak for the soul.

Comment 23 Nov 2013

Truly a great class. What's most remarkable is that they withstood the coach that recruited them to be spectacularly pushed out, then deal with 2 more coaches changes and handled it all like men not boys. And that they were able to make these adjustments and contribute to the last 2 stellar seasons makes them even more badass. And dare I say, the best is yet to come with this bunch as a Buckeye. 

Comment 16 Nov 2013

Think everyone got overconfident not coming into the game but after 2.5 quarters...even the coaches. Clearly Hyde was getting his way. And the D's pressure was forcing INTs and sacks. They looked very focused most of the first half. I don't really by the overconfidence as a mindset before the game because of that. Win is a win. Praise to El Guapo...and secondary praise Johnston! He may be surprise All American.

Comment 13 Nov 2013

Those new D rules seem the biggest concern. Affects our pressure D which helped bail us out last year when the O stalled. Thought OU was a pretty strong and disciplined team. No MSU. But good game to show strengths and what needs worked. 

Comment 13 Nov 2013

Agree, Bucksfan. Think his comments stirred the right amount of shit. Now we can focus on blowing out the remainder of B10 teams while Urban can do the "take these guys against anyone". Those who feel that playing to the media doesn't help your cause is stuck in pre-BCS times. Not saying it's right. Just saying the way it is.
