BAH!  We need the conference to get better.  SO lets have MSU and Penn State and Maryland and Nebraska and Wisconsin and Iowa be relevant.  As for the wolverweasels?  I hope they fall so far that they decide its not worth it and drop scholarship football and join the Ivy League.  There is nothing that would make me happier than to see those entitled, spoiled, arrogant fans fade to nothingness.

The same reason you don't like Uncle Drew is the same reason tOSU fans do like him.  We like HIS version of the truth.  I know it always gives ME warm fuzzies in my tummy.

Thank you grammar nazi.  I wrote that on the fly. But I fixed it for you.  You can untwist your panties now.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

My wife asked me what I was reading this morning as I read Drew Sharp's article.  I said, "I'm reading an article on Schadenfreude."

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Really???  WTF do you think a screen pass is?  Its a slow developing play.  Just like a draw play or a delay.  What you want in that situation is a quick slant thrown into the area vacated by the blitzers.  But that takes experienced presnap reads from BOTH the QB and the WR.  This edition of the Buckeyes currently has neither.  I'm willing to bet that Corey Smith failed at least twice with this.

Does everyone forget that they did call one and JT overthrew it?  Reading this board AND the other quality tOSU board I read, its readily apparent why Columbus was known as the "Graveyard of Coaches" until the toughest hombre to ever wear a whistle took the job.  In other words, some of you need to take a chill pill.  Yes, the Buckeyes lost.  But most of the problems were because of the inexperience, not because Urban is lazy or whatever other troll comment you can find.  Experience and coaching can still get them to improve.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I responded to the statement that they needed to call a screen, implying they didn't.  I was just pointing out the inaccuracy of that implication.  If someone is trying to make an argument, and they base it on an untruth/half-truth, regardless the quality of the rest of the argument; they lose all credibility in the debate.

There are LOTS of play calls to neutralize pressure.  Hell, better blocking at the point of attack on RUNNING PLAYS is just as effective.  Some would argue that when your OLine is struggling, that road grading is a better way to get the most out of a young mistake prone OLine.

No worries.  Bluehairs who won't stand don't know how to text.

Comment 31 Aug 2014

When URban was hired, I remember him saying that they have a few pages in the playbook that are I-formation.  If there is ever a need for the ISO play, or an Ace formation slant, its that third and 1.  I would imagine that Navy wouldn't be able to stop that.

Prop Joe built like Brady Hoke

Marlo Stanfield built like Urban Meyer.

Results?  SImilar.  (In a metophoric way before weasel fans get their panties twisted.)

Comment 27 Aug 2014

I defy ANY college Football blog anywhere on the internet to find a better writer than Ramzy.  Hell, SI and Sporting News and USA Today don't have anyone better.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

I'll be watching my Stoke City Potters take on Manchester City at 10:00am.  Then its Buckeye time!

Comment 26 Aug 2014

WVU back then were alot like our Little Brother is now.  (UCinn)  They weren't as good as they thought they were.  But they weren't dogshit either.  Think Maryland/Northwestern from today.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

Alabama in the 80's was still forminable.  ditto Washington and LSU.  UTah, Colorado and Oregon (pre Phil Knight?)  Dogshit.

Comment 22 Aug 2014

You're shocked about Twitter?  Imagine how I feel?

Also, I was disappointed that the bangers this week didn't include more clips from The Wire.  Having just finished watching all five seasons (Thanks Amazon Prime), all I can say is "Wow.  Just Wow."

Comment 21 Aug 2014

"Bye Daddy.  Thanks Momma" said Diane as her parents relucantly let their baby go.  "Sheesh", thought DIane, "I wish they would get the heck out of here.  That boy from Lakewood I met as we were walking past Barrett House was cute.  I need to go find him and figure out why I feel so funny and light headed."

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Absolutely agree with this.  I have suspected for awhile, that Vrabel's player usage philosophy and his closeness to our LB coach who I also suspect of not up to normal Urban standards clashed with Meyer privately.  There were occasional almost snarky comments made after the bowl game by Urban about player usage.  I have always had a feeling that the coaches we lost were told to go somewhere else.  I only wish Luke F went with them.  I hold him almost solely responsible for the tarnish on the silver bullets.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

Why do I picture a Scarlet and Gray drone shooting down a Urine and blue drone over the Woody Hayes fields the week of the game?

Comment 29 Jul 2014

Wolverweasels don't make tOSU great.  tOSU makes tOSU great.  tOSU won a2National Championships in the 50's.  The weasels generally were a .500 team then going 52-36-3.  tOSU won 3 NCs in the 10 years from 1961 to 1970.  The weasels were a .600 team with 1 Big Ten Championship in that era and 1 co-championship with tOSU that came with an 20-9 asskicking by the Buckeyes.  Screw the weasels.  tOSU doesn't need them.  If PSU, MSU, Neb, Wisc can pull their weight, I'm quite happy to have the weasel narrative follow the one Minnesota followed.  A former national power now so perenially beaten down, that the average masses forget what a power they used to be.  

I have a fantasy that they're beaten down so much, they join the Ivy League and drop scholarship athletics.  It always makes me feel good. ;)
