Toledo fan and alum here will take the Buckeyes to cover the spread easily. If the Rockets can shred the Falcons' defense, as they've done in the past 5 years en route to victories over BG, I'm sure the Buckeyes will run up at least 42 points, too.
I've been trying to dig a garden in my backyard. I could use some strong guys to help me. Serious, sort of. LOL!
I'm sure the OSU-Oklahoma game will be prime time on ESPN, ABC or Fox. That game is ratings bonanza for a network.
As long as Urban Meyer is head coach at Ohio State, we Buckeye fans will have many more nights like this...and a few more national championships to enjoy.
Rooting for the Red Wings to win it all but I know they won't. Now that I live in the Columbus area, I'm getting more interested in the Blue Jackets to be better. Saw three games at Nationwide and only one was a win for the Jackets. 2 trips to the playoffs in 15 years is pathetic. In baseball talk, that's a .133 batting average.
Trust in Meyer to get the players he wants and let the leftovers go somewhere else. His record speaks for itself. Trust in him to keep the Buckeyes champions!
That's when all the *ichigan players win their Heisman Trophies!
Khaki Pants had nothing to say to reporters after the game. I have a feeling that's code speak for "my team stinks".
Romo broke his collarbone twice last year.
Nothing against Bosa here -- it's Dallas' loss not to pick him. But the Cowboys could better use some big dudes on the offensive line that can keep Romo upright all season.
Someone should tell Smith never to apologize to the team and school up north for anything. He looked weak doing that. Gene should have reminded Harbaugh of the score from that game: 42-13. Hope Urb can hang another 42-13 on scUM next fall in the Shoe.
A new hockey arena exclusively for Ohio State's men and women would be great for both teams. If you have never been to the Huntington Center in Toledo, you should go and see a Walleye game. Atmosphere there is great and it seats about 7,500 for hockey. SRO crowds can go up to 8,200. That's all you need for hockey on campus. OSU could model a new hockey arena after the one in downtown Toledo.
But he's 1000 times better the coach than Beckman.
Anytime a school or team fires a coach, they usually have someone in mind ready to take the job and close to being on board. If not, then the Illini football program will be a train wreck for a long time.
If he can't win the Big Ten title, how long will he be loved in that town and state up north? 9-3 and 8-4 is sooooooo LLLLLLLoyd Carr.
I heard Dom Tiberi call him a 4-star player last night. Whatever, the number of stars doesn't matter to me. He's a Buckeye and not a Wolver-weenie and that's all that matters to me.
Rutgers would have trouble winning the MAC in men's basketball.
Now we can beat BeeGee by 40!
I'm trying to wrap my mind around Khaki pants hiring all these high school coaches. By the time he will finish his contract in four years, will he have hired 100 new assistants to fill administrative jobs at TSUN? I'm assuming he has to hire the high school coach that coached all of his recruits.
There's Shane Morris for bad recruiting. Shane the so-called 5-star can't miss QB sees the field every game via a clipboard. He's one can't miss that missed. I don't think he recruited that well but I'll agree with you on the bad coaching concept up north.
Now that Gary signed with the school up north, I now have no reason to watch ESPN salivate all over him as the next best college football player ever to strap on a cup. I'll watch Seinfeld reruns instead.
None of them have played on a National Championship team. None of them have won their conference. Let's welcome Gary to that illustrious group. You need more than one guy like that to win a conference title and a National Championship.
I'll stick with Meyer's recruits over what that school up north gets any time, any day.
I'm reading Meyer's book. After reading that piece in the Skull Session on him vs. Harbaugh, you would understand why Meyer comes off as an intelligent, meticulous person and recruiter and Khaki Pants comes off as a scatter-brain guy full of cliche sales pitches.
By the way, so what if those people up north get Gary. We have Nick Bosa. And better coaches.
Someone has to buy all those khakis Harbaugh wears. Jim's too busy to shop for his clothes with all those sleepovers he does. That's what all those assistants do for him.
I don't care if Saban or whoever is coaching the Tide by 2017 or 2021 beats Mercer by one point or 60 or 100. The playoff committee should dock Alabama a ton of points for even scheduling them. If Bama is in the top four by the time they play Mercer in 2017 or 2021, the committee should drop them to 6 or 7. Or if there is an 8-team playoff setup by 2017 or 2021, 'Bama should be dropped to 10 or12 as a punishment for scheduling a FCS team.
