An OSU home game on Friday night will make all the high schools in Central Ohio play on Saturday night. High school football crowds will be almost nonexistent if the Buckeyes have a home game on Friday night.
Does Mark May know about this?
If Michigan is found in violation of US Civil Rights laws, will the NCAA throw some penalties at them?
Looks like he has good speed to play on kickoffs and punt returns.
Anything that comes out of Mike Mayock's mouth is a cliche.
In 2015, Michigan will wear uniforms that look like NASCAR drivers.
Raise him properly and you won't have any problems with him. From a parent who has two daughters.
No happy faces in that photo. You can tell the family is not in agreement where he should go to college.
As highly touted that they are, there ought to be at least one of them on the all-Freshman All-America team next fall.
These are pros who get millions and half-millions to play pro football. They can trash talk each other all they want. It doesn't bother me. Dan Hawkins is right.
The September Heisman comment is almost an annual thing now because UM fans and the sportswriters who worship them always pump up Michigan players for the Heisman after one good game in September. Then after a couple of bad ones, their names disappear from the Heisman list. Denard, now Gardner.
Certainly not writing off any OSU freshman. Where did you think I was when I was making a point about Michigan's freshmen? I saw them play. I have eyes. Green was too fat. He needs to lose weight. Maybe he will gain some speed. He doesn't hit the holes quickly...the few that he had.
Losing Gallon will be a big hole to fill. He improved 1000% from his junior year. Dileo was not a Gallon but he made big, key catches. Those are two big losses in the receiving corps.
I'll concede you on the OL. If they can't block, a new OC won't be much of a help. Can they really be better than last season without Lewan and Schofield? The guard and center play was miserable.
Nussmeier had more talent to work with at Alabama than he does have now at Michigan. McCarron, a twice Heisman finalist in December, is much better than Gardner and Morris, the annual September Heisman candidates that disappear from the list in October. He had Lacy and Yeldon running the ball. scUM has no one even close to them in talent. Plus, Nussmeier had a great offensive line creating holes for the running backs and protecting McCarron. scUM's OL is just offensive, period. He has his work cut out.
If ESPN could block out the Buckeye players on the field, they would.
A Buckeye fan longer than you have been, I'm sure. Just being realistic, not a cheerleader.
BTW, I have a daughter who works at the Wexner Medical Center and another one who has a degree from TOSU. I bleed Scarlet and Gray, like you do.
RE: Roby not playing because of a bad knee...I bring you, and I hate to do this, Devin Gardner playing on his bad foot and nearly beating the Buckeyes with it. That kid, even if he is a Wolver-weenie, has more guts and heart than Roby. Now I feel sick just thinking I typed those sentences.
So now the Buckeyes have one player who's hurt and may walk away from his team [sit out] so he doesn't hurt his draft stock? If that's the truth, Meyer ought to put Roby back on a plane and send him home right now. He's not a Buckeye in my mind. And Miller ought to concentrate on playing his ass off on Friday night instead of worrying about his draft stock. If he's so damn worried about what round he would get picked, then I'd put him on a plane with Roby. Play Kenny at QB. He has 10 times the heart that Miller and Roby have.
From reading all of the story, I'll put out my pick: Clemson 49, OSU 24. I'm sure Boyd, Watkins and Company have a lot more heart and guts than what the Buckeyes are showing me right now. Hope I'm wrong on my pick, but I don't have a good feeling about this team for reasons stated above.
The Michigan team to worry about next season is not the one in Ann Arbor. It's in East Lansing. The Hokesters will get mauled again by the Spartans. Hoke has a bunch of down feather pillows on his team. Dantonio has tough kids who would run through a brick wall for him. OSU has new competition for the Big Ten title -- Michigan State. Michigan is now irrelevant and will be for as long as Dantonio coaches Sparty.
Congrats to Sparty for winning the Rose Bowl.
The Great Shane got a 53.7 QB rating from ESPN. He will ride the pines next year if Gardner comes back. He still can't figure it out for himself that he's wasting whatever talent he has at scUM by holding a clipboard during games.
This is always a great photo. The Sparty fans in East Lansing would love to see it, as well, when it pertains to Michigan State. They also can't stand scUM. I like it when they're irrelevant.
Do all of you who are rooting for Michigan in the Buffalo Wings Bowl think that scUM fans are rooting for the Buckeyes to beat Clemson in the Orange Bowl? Count me as a K-State fan tonight.
53-20, Buckeyes way ahead in second half. Game is on BTN.
I'd like to see a Big 10-ACC challenge in football every year, just like they do in basketball.
Who's the defensive coach that brought him into the fold? Or was it Meyer himself? Linebacking will be 100% better in 2014.
Red Wings fan here, but I like his fired-up enthusiasm as well as his rendition of the National Anthem. He knows how to pump up the Bruins fans.
This one will never get old.
