I was brought up on Buckeye football and basketball. Nothing is better, unless Gus Johnson is the commentator for their games.

He's a three star right?

Hoping that he breaks through that and shows that he has NFL potential... like I hope for everyone.

But he also seems grounded and wants to acquire a degree. Very modest kid.

Glad we got this one.

Comment 15 Mar 2014

Wow, more people saying we are going to lose one or two games in this thread than I expected.

Before I do this, I am saying a few things. My predictions are solely based on Chris Ash fixing the defense, our defense becoming the Silver Bullets again, and a severely pissed off, yet monotonous as usual, Braxton Miller. I also highly expect Decker to be a leader on our O-Line, encouraging the younger guys. Elflein may be green, but he stepped up big time and I think our line is going to be just fine.

at Navy - 45 - 21; If they are still running the triple option, they are putting at least 21 up...

vs. Virginia Tech - 56 - 17; Statement game... beamer ball is going to get railed

vs. Kent State - 63 - 10; Kent read, Kent write, Kent play football (sorry to any Kent St. Alums offended by this)

vs. Cincinnati - 49 - 10; Showing Cincinnati fans that they don't want any part of us... ever

at Maryland - 38 - 21; Welcome to the B1G.

at Penn State - 35 - 24; This game could be one of the closest of the year, especially in that ugly white out.

vs. Illinois - 56 - 20; Bounceback game... Buckeyes are still on a mission

at Michigan State - 63 - 28; Connor Cook is likely to put some points up, but I think Ohio State is dying to make a statement after last year.

at Minnesota - 28 - 17; I have to put that one anomaly game in which Ohio State tries to lose... might as well be this one, although I doubt it.

vs. Indiana - 70 - 35; Let's play offense only

vs. Michigan - 42 - 17; Ohio State is not only at home, but likely still pissed about letting Michigan come so close last year.

B1G Champ:

1. Wisconsin - 31 - 10

or

2. Nebraska - 45 - 19

------------

I expect a National Title this year, so I might as well predict one. Of course, I can also see the scenarios earlier mentioned occurring as well.

Comment 15 Mar 2014

It's fairly well known that the B1G and the ACC are the premiere basketball conferences and before the Big East killed itself, it was probably 2nd tier.

The biggest problem with the B1G this year was it was cannibalistic. Honestly 8 B1G teams should be in the tournament.

Comment 15 Mar 2014

Our press is ridiculous and puts an insane amount of pressure on... everyone.

If it wouldn't dog our guys, I'd say run it the whole game.

Comment 15 Mar 2014

I highly doubt they have been making more with less the last two years.

Last year they had Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke to pair along with their big man who is currently out with a back injury and Stauskas.

They had a pretty damn good team last year and they have played very well this year.

Comment 15 Mar 2014

So Rls... what program do you run?

You seem to know a lot about player development, you must be a D1 coach yourself right?

I hope you realize that if this team had a Jon Diebler we would be a top 5 or top 7 team.

Also, I hope you realize that when this team amps up it's defense... it's insane. 

Our losses have been because we can't hit a shot. And it's not like these guys aren't open, they just don't hit. Today's loss was largely due to missed free throws down the stretch and TTUN having one of the best halves in 3-Pt shooting I've ever seen.

Comment 15 Mar 2014

I sadly didn't record that. I should have done so and spliced them together. 

Could have called it Sam Thompson, No Regard for Human Life.

But the fact that I even posted the block is a stretch considering we lost.

Comment 01 Mar 2014

He ran away to hide from Urban in the best place possible.

When you want to hide something well, put it in plain sight... i.e. the SEC because that media love.

Comment 28 Feb 2014

I'd love to see him rip TTUN a new one.

They are coming back to our house this year and you know damn well that this will be the best team Urban has had yet against a very likely mediocre sun and blue.

Sure, throw the records out the window, but I think the Buckeyes are going to be on a mission this year.

As the Common Man says... "He's fat!"

Comment 28 Feb 2014

I was thinking more something like this:

Helmet: Flat Black with a Red Block O on the side, Gray Stripe down the middle. Chrome green buckeye stickers.

Jersey: Black with Gray numbers, Red stripes on the shoulder

Pants: Black with Red and Gray stripe up the side

I don't know why I capitalized some words on that, but whatever.

This isn't football and as long as the loss isn't in March or April, it isn't always a bad thing.

 

This team made the comeback it needed to, it played the defense it needed to, but it still didn't get the job done at the end.

 

That's ok, they needed to learn. This is what B1G basketball is. Beat the hell out of eachother and then destroy everyone in March/April. It's basically what the SEC has being doing in football for quite some time now.

There's something special and different about this Buckeye team.

 

Two major comebacks like this just don't happen and honestly... this may be the best defensive team Thad has EVER had.
