Comment 26 Jan 2015

Thanks everyone. I thought of buying software that converts the Youtube MP4 video to DVD, but the downloaded video quality is not good even though it claims 720p.

My 90 year old uncle is a big Buckeye fan in an assisted living community in another state, only has basic cable available and dial-up internet at his facility. I have a pre-ordered 2 DVD's of the playoff games for him, but he asked me for the B1G championship game too. (He was overjoyed that I sent him the Columbus Dispatch from January 13th after the title game).

Could not find ANY DVDs of B1G championship games available at the B1G Network, so I think we are out of luck.

Comment 24 Jan 2015

Excellent article and it's similar to how I see it playing out.

No one is going to sit the 2 time B1G player of the year if he is ready to go. Don't forget that Braxton never had the luxury of playing with those evolved receivers and play makers that JT and Cardale had this year.

JT gives defenses too much to worry about. He is more likely to get the ball into the hands of all these Buckeye play makers. The vaunted MSU defense simply could not stop the Bucks when he was running the show, and that was indeed the first time I saw the growing potential of this powerful offense.   

While Cardale will certainly stretch the field a bit more than JT because he can fire the long ball and fastball, he's a bit slower and the option game is not smooth.

If I were choosing with only my heart it would be Cardale for what he did for Buckeye Nation. But, as others have said, I have great confidence in this coaching staff and know that they will chose whomever gives the team the best chance to win.

Anyone with a brain knows that if we had instant replay available for the game it would have ended in regulation. You can't have your cake and eat it too Miami.

Don't forget that the ref, Porter, who threw the flag said immediately after the game that he believed he saw both Holding and Pass Interference on the play and he hesitated deciding which to call.

"Imagine having a dream and when you wake up it’s still going". Well said Tyvis.

And that's the gift you guys gave to Buckeye Nation as well.

Comment 22 Jan 2015

The only thing that could hurt Devin is that he wasn't consistent catching the football until this season. While he always made great catches, he dropped his share too. He must have concentrated on that this year as he caught everything.

Somebody's going to get a steal in the draft.

Comment 21 Jan 2015

A little tidbit for anyone who didn’t see the whole “Late Show” program and especially for those that thought Letterman was trying to pick on Urban.

When the show came back from commercial after the Urban interview, Letterman said he wished he was Urban Myer, and Paul Shaffer asked why. Letterman said that Urban makes him feel like he never accomplished anything significant in life.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

Great story and so true. Winning a National championship is like walking through a minefield with a blindfold.

I for one am still not finished reading and watching stories about this amazing year. Two copies of the championship game are still on my DVR and may never come off.

Comment 15 Jan 2015

Don’t let the facts get in your way.

Letterman obviously made jokes about Bristol Palin, the daughter who has in was indeed “knocked up”, and he later apologized on air for the confusion with Willow. Google is your friend.

Letterman also said, and I quote, that Sarah had a “slutty flight attendant look”. It was a joke about her hotness but you want to construe it as hateful.

And don’t let the fact that Letterman was not married when he had an affair with an intern bother you.

A “nasty piece of work”? Take a look in the mirror (and quit getting your facts from FOX).

Comment 14 Jan 2015

I would love to see/hear an interview with Zeke's dad. Bound to be an interesting story of how the "frosty" relationship turned into one where pops is now a big Buckeye promoter and recruiter.

Comment 12 Jan 2015

If the game is a showcase for talent alone I think we win. But I think we will need to score on almost every possession with few penalties and turnovers, and keep the Oregon offense off the field.

Go Bucks. Get an undisputed title leaving no doubt who was the best team in the country!

Comment 24 Dec 2014

Be careful what you wish for my fellow Buckeye fans. Harbaugh insists on physical play and recruits like an SOB. Anyone who could make Stanford significant in college football has more than mojo working for him.

Wanting “The Game” to be competitive again has lots of downside. The Buckeyes will have a harder time getting a national title. Consider that “The Game”, followed by the B1G title game, followed by the first playoff game, followed by the National Championship game is a stretch of games where top performance in each might very well be damn near impossible.

Besides, the hate is strong in this one. In other words, I want scUM to stay irrelevant!

Comment 12 Dec 2014

Far and away the most beloved person in Central Ohio.

After reading the wonderful article by ESPN these two memories came to the forefront of my mind. 

Hearing the excitement in the radio announcer's voice in Archie's first full game "boy this kid from Eastmoor sure looks great".

Coach Hayes on his TV program showing video of an Archie run and saying "just look at the string of pearls", referring to opponents left on the ground after missing a tackles.

Comment 09 Dec 2014

For me it's Curtis Samuel. But don't want to take too many touches away from Zeke or Jalin. 

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Someone should have mentioned to Jesse that if the Bucks had beaten Oklahoma St. 59 - 0 they still would have been in.

Comment 07 Dec 2014

That's what scares me too. It makes them look incredibly bad that they thought enough of TCU to jump them 2 spots over an undefeated team and then to turn around and say they are not top 4 material after all even after a 55 -3 win. (And they will NOT decide to eliminate an undefeated conference champ, and reigning national champion from the playoffs).

Their story line could very well be that they examined overall resumes in detail and they liked TCU's better than the Buckeyes.

Comment 03 Dec 2014

The committee has the top 4 set unless one of them loses, and that's not very likely. It ought to be obvious that they won't put the Buckeyes in over and undefeated 4th place FSU.

My guess is that it won't matter since I don't believe our offense will be able to keep the defense off the field against Wisky. (Cardale just doesn't have enough game experience) Buckeye D will be tired in the 4th, and that's when Gordon will get most of his yards. Would love to be wrong!
