I guess I am practically alone here but I care more for what is best for the team and their chances for a National Championship.

Why does anyone want to play the greatest rivalry game in sports potentially (very often) right before a B1G championship game and two other playoff games against the best the country has to offer? The players in the GAME themselves have said that everything else pales in comparison. To a man they speak of how emotionally and physically spent they are afterwards. Wayne Woodrow always commented on how difficult it was to get the guys up for more that a couple of games, and that bowl games were often anti-climatic.

To hell with tradition I want my Buckeyes up where they belong, at the top of the college football world, and as often as possible. Do whatever helps them achieve it!

I am an older man with a business background and I've seen far too many guys like Waters. These inflexible relics refuse to accept that society grows and that many poor behaviors become no longer acceptable.

This pretty much sums up this situation:

Waters had been told to take sexual-harassment training after one case, the report said, but he didn’t.

These quarterback gurus go back to the foundation and mechanics of playing the position and they are sought out because the athlete wants improvement for the next level. Most coaches on the other hand don't care for changing too much of anything as long as they are winning. (Think it's hard for most of these kids not to fall back into old bad habits during the fast paced pressure of games with QB coaches reluctant to harp on change).

The only thing more stupid that pissing on Modell's grave is Modell's family saying they will press charges against the pisser.

Comment 24 Jul 2014

Yep, and the youngsters want you to believe that Jeter is greater than Ruth or Gehrig because he faced the more advanced modern day pitchers.

For me it's been Wisconsin. For the last couple of decades the Wisky fans have not only relished taking the Buckeyes down but the team has done just that, and at critical times.

PSU with Franklin will be rapidly climbing the chart.

I like the noon kickoffs since I love college football and make plans around Saturdays (yes, family hates me!). Noon with the Buckeyes is usually the only game worth watching in that time slot and it starts the day off right. There seem to be great games at 3:30 and again at 7 or 8, and hopefully a west coaster at 11. Hell, put "College Gameday" in the lineup and I am a couch potato many Saturdays for 17 or 18 hours.

Did I mention that I love college football?

Jerome Baker must have believed there was too much competition for him at linebacker. Hard to believe Urban lost out on an Ohio guy that changed his mind late.

Comment 08 Jul 2014

Agree with everything you posted. And I have a feeling Thomas might lead this team in catches.

Braxton's passes generally look good when he has the time and wherewithal to plant those feet, so here's hoping Whitfield reminded him of that.

Comment 07 Jul 2014

I still don't understand why Buckeye fans want Michigan to be good again.  How about Purdue, Minnesota, Indiana?  Can't we want them to be better to improve the conference reputation rather than Michigan?

I'm with you. What we need is an improvement of the conference in general and the conference teams to start winning bowl games. One team reaching their former glory isn't enough to regain national respect. We need to hear the mention of 1 or 2 B1G teams every year in the discussion of playoff due to conference strength of schedule.

Good article. It's the first time I have read about what happened to Smith at OSU. There are some big egos in the coaching profession. 

And how bad could the ESPN bias against OSU be if they fired Trev Alberts and hired Robert Smith.

Comment 29 Jun 2014

Yep, that's the one.

I was frustrated for months trying to find answers for why a great team flopped in the biggest game and on the biggest stage.

Comment 29 Jun 2014

This is a very weak attempt by the UM staff to get another quarterback ready to play. Anyone who thinks the QB position at Michigan will be lead by someone who doesn't have substantial live experience in reading defenses, is living in La La Land.

Gardner may very well be a little out of shape or "sync", but seriously?

Comment 29 Jun 2014

Iowa could very well "slugfest" their way into a chance to play for the B1G title with that schedule.

He seems like a real mature kid looking for growth on and off the field. Those kind of guys usually do great things.

Welcome Johnnie.
