UFM will always have us Prepared to play our rival. That said, even with the Losses, Hoke also had his team prepared for their Rival. I believe if our rival played with the intensity and preparation they exhibited against us Hoke would still be their coach.  Our rival beating us this year? As a betting man, and who we have at the helm of our Great Team, you would stand a better chance at getting struck by lightning. Man to man there is NO edge for them at any position. Nice try though pal. Not selling. GO BUCKS!!!!

Corey Smith is a senior. I believe this is our "wildcard". Don't be surprised if this guy has a monster year, playing opposite of Michael Thomas (who I believe will be a top 15 pick). Corey could play himself into a 2nd rder. Kid is explosive and good. GO BUCKS!!!!

Hands down Logan Steiber has had the Greatest 4-year career of any Buckeye athlete. I don't even think it's close. Archie, with 2 Heisman's would be 2nd, then Jesse with those 4-world records on that day in ttun. But, 4-years? Logan is the ANSWER!!!! GO BUCKS!!!!

Surprise to see only one person mentioned Devin Smith. If you mean, best athlete, as participating and excelling in multiple sports, I can't see anyone being more athletic or more successful than Devin. Senior year in high school alone, he was 1st team all state football, won 2 gold medals in the track and field championships (100m, long jump), and was a dunking guard on the basketball team. Plus in college he was the only one of our football players to participate in another sport (track), and he did so at a high level (placed 2nd at the BIG Indoor championships by jumping 7+').

Watching "First Take" and both Stephen A. and Skip Bayless project Cardale as a late 1st rd pick. Both said that his throwing motion is better than Jameis and Marcus. Both also agreed that Cardale needs to go to a team that has a veteran qb, where he could develop into the qb-in waiting. The sad thing for Cardale and other draft eligible players is that the window for declaring is closing. They only have 48 more hours in which to declare. Pressure? Sure. My advice, his draft stock will probably never get higher. GO.  Thanks Cardale. GO BUCKS!!!!

Tough break for this young man. It appears that he will get his degree and venture into coaching. Win-win for both him and our program. Kudos to coach Meyer for being there for Trey. I can only imagine how devastating it was for Trey to find out about his arthritis. Thankfully he can still parlay a future with football. GO BUCKS!!!!

Maybe nitpicking but I believe it should be pointed out and said. After all, with the season he has had, NO other Buckeye freshman qb has EVER attained All-America status. J.T. Barrett has been named 2nd team All-America on 2 post-season teams. That's an honor to him and to our University. All articles or mentions about J.T. Barrett in the future should include this status of him, and not just as Heisman candidate. Brax was an Heisman candidate but not an All-American. Congratulations to our All-American QB and Heisman candidate J.T. Barrett. GO BUCKS!!!!

The short memories of people. J.T. Barrett was a 2nd team All-America (made 2 AA teams). No other Buckeye freshman in history can lay claim to that. The kid is a winner who can flat-out quarterback. Cardale Jones is an awesome talent, and I do agree with the media pundits in that he is, right now, the best pro prospect of the 3. But, just don't sleep on J.T. who I believe has the same skill set of Russell Wilson. Here's hoping all 3 return. Because you never when all 3 may be used. What a great situation our Buckeyes are in. As coach Meyer said, "it's a great time to be a Buckeye". GO BUCKS!!!!

I would also like to add that Devin (I believe) is our only 2-sport athlete playing football. He ran a leg on the 2013 NCAA 4x100 team that earned 2nd team All-American honors; and, last year he was All BIG in the high jump (7'-3/4") where he finished with a Silver medal at the Conference Championships. Proud of this guy's accomplishments. Go Devin and GO BUCKEYES!!!!

The freshmen entering Ohio State University in 1967 (freshmen were ineligible until the 1972 season) and graduating in 1971 were dubbed "The Super Sophomores", record of 27-2, 1 National Championship, were perhaps the "Best" recruiting class in the history of college football. That recruiting class included 11 HS All-Americans, all drafted by the NFL in 1971, and most of them were 3 year Buckeye starters. Some of you may remember these names (list of the 11 HS AA's): QB Rex Kern, DB Jack Tatum (1970 AA), DT Jim Stillwagon (1970 AA), RB John Brockington (1970 AA), DB Mike Sensibaugh (1970 AA), TE Jan White (1970 AA), WR Bruce Jankowski, DB Tim Anderson (1970 AA), HB Larry Zelina, LB Doug Adams, DE Mark Debevc.

For the record that group had 6 (listed above) All-Americans, and 13 were drafted in the 1971 NFL Draft, 4 in the 1st round. Our 2013 group is the best so far in the Meyer years. What an outstanding group. Would not be surprised if this group doesn't match the 1967 group in producing 4 1st rd picks (my projections are: Bosa, Bell, Apple, Price, with Barrett and Elliott going either in the 1st but definitely in the 2nd). So, this group, NFL-draft wise, could top the 1967 group. GO BUCKS!!!!

Brian Johnson could be a reach. Why: Yes, he was a freshman qb at Utah when Coach Meyer was the HC, but the OC and QB Coach there was Dan Mullen, his current employer at Miss State. Of course, where would I rather be "there" or in Columbus. A no-brainer. Hope it works out like that. Would be a good hire. GO BUCKS!!!!

Comment 15 Dec 2014

2013 class will go down as one of the best in the history of our school. All 9 of these guys should be drafted, with a possibility of a #1 (Bosa), and at least 5 others (Bell, Apple, Barrett, Elliott, Price) in the 1st or 2nd rds. Definitely Coach Meyer's best class at OSU, GO BUCKS!!!!

Herschel was a junior when he won the Heisman. Took bad advice before his senior year by signing with an agent, and after losing his eligibility, signed with the USFL's New Jersey Generals to play with a team owner named Donald Trump. Herschel always wishes that he had stayed at Georgia. If he had I'm sure the 4-year rushing record would have been out of reach. Too me, the best college rb of all time. This assessment from a BIG guy. GO BUCKS!!!!

If our defense plays Bama the way we played the Badgers we will win. The key to stopping Bama's O, as it is anyone's O, but especially an athletically-gifted team as them, is to make sure that there is no yards gained beyond our initial contact. Just as we did against the Nation's #1 back, hit him, contain him, and bring him down. When you review Bama tape a lot of their yards (scores) come after the initial contact. Oklahoma did an outstanding job of tackling in last year's bowl game win.

I believe their O is tailor-made for our D. Very similar to Wisky, line up and pound. However they do have the ability obviously to also pass. But I'm not buying Sims. Pressure this guy and he we will "Gardnernize", throw the ball up for grabs. In the Iron Bowl Saban was ready to bench him. I'm confident that coach Meyer will have a plan. He's been there done that a few times against Bama. He definitely knows the plan and effort it takes to bring the crimson to their knees. GO BUCKS!!!!

Comment 07 Dec 2014

Hope Alabama forget what Oklahoma did to them in last year's bowl. I watched Bama's game with Missouri and I definitely see us not only hanging in there with these guys but having enough punch and savvy to score points. They are surely not invincible. GO BUCKS!!!!
