Austin, TX (via Toledo, OH)

Member since 01 December 2011 | Blog

Spent most of my childhood and adult life in Toledo. Went to TOSU for 3 semesters before I had to come back home for personal/family reasons. Finished my degree at University of Toledo, but I will always be a Buckeye. I've been living in Austin, TX for the past 6 years as a result of work relocation.

looks like tweet has since been deleted. Think before you press "send" coach.

Tennessee, followed by Clemson, and Bama-in that order of preference. There are no fans worse than Tennessee fans and I'd love nothing more than to have Urbs curb-stomp Butch Jones back to Knoxville. 

Comment 17 Jan 2017

How is Michael Thomas NOT a nominee?? Just because there happen to be 2 other rookies already on the list from Ohio State should have had no bearing on whether or not Thomas made the list, but I can guarantee you that is the only reason why. Certainly he's far more deserving than Wentz!

This late in the process, where would Warinner go? He hasn't exactly raised his marketability with the way the offense played this year, so it's not like he can grab another OC job anywhere, so he may have to just be content with a demotion at least for one more year. I'd like to see Coach Stud move over to the TE's, and Warinner get moved back to being the OL coach. Come April there will be room for both of them, and Wilson can take an analyst title between now and then before he's officially promoted to OC.

Which is exactly why I like the hire. I knew nothing about Herman when his name was dropped, and that worked out ok. Beck on the other hand, I was aware of during his days with Nebraska, and didn't care for the hire when it was announced.

Hard to turn down first round money. We've seen too many times before what kids risk by staying another year in terms of injury, change in draft stock, etc. If he does stay, I'd love to see what this kid can do taking on a bigger overall role: kick/punt returns, maybe even getting in a couple of series on offense. He's so talented that I have no doubt he'd put up Heisman number....and I'm talking real Heisman number. Unlike No. 5 for TTUN.

This speaks highly about how these kids gravitate to playing for Tom Herman and his recruiting ability. That being said, I'd be shocked if Allen actually ever plays for Tom Herman as I doubt he'll still be Houston's head coach in 2017. If Allen wants to play for Herman, he should transfer to Texas. 

Comment 04 Jan 2016

I thought about that, and honestly in the end I think that with less options, the offense will function more efficiently with less skill guys on the team demanding touches-without significant injuries of course. That being said, he most likely would have been the feature weapon on offense next year (assuming Mike Thomas also declares) seeing that he'd be the most experienced WR on the roster. In the end, he probably figured that he might as well get paid to improve at the next level rather than play for free and risk injury for one more year, which is sound logic. He'll definitely get drafted in the mid-to-late rounds.

This one will remain a mystery to me for a long time. Auburn has no DC, and with the lack of experienced depth at that position next year, he would have had a really good chance to contribute early. I just don't get it. Moving focus to Rashard Lawrence, that won't be easy. Birm just tweeted that Urban has never been able to land a Louisiana recruit. And it looks like the Rashard Gary ship sailed a while ago. I don't believe the rumors I've read that Schiano puts OSU back in the fold with him. Buckeyes need to bounce back big and I'm sure Urban and co. will do just that. 

Comment 03 Dec 2015

"ONE-MORE-YEAR, ONE-MORE-YEAR" come on everyone let me hear it....oh well, a fan can dream. Joey Bosa is truly one of the greatest to ever play the position at OSU and he'll be sorely missed. Good thing another Bosa will be here next year to take his place. Looking forward to seeing Big Bear go first overall in the draft!

Comment 17 Nov 2015

I think it's also important to point out, and I'm sure it already has been in these comments, is that both Fournette and Henry have already had a chance to shine in their premier games this season. Henry took advantage, Fournette did not. That is one reason I don't think Fournette will win. It's one thing to rack up a ton of yards against inferior competition, it's another thing to do it against great defenses. Fournette had the chance to have his true "Heisman moment" and missed it. Henry took advantage, no matter how overrated LSU and Miss St may have been. That is the best thing about Zeke's chances. He has 2-3 games against really good defenses to shine. If he is able to put up decent numbers in 2 of the remaining three games (assuming OSU gets to the BIG csg), then I think he'll have a really good chance to win the award. At this point, he has more chances left to do so then either of the other two backs. It's still considered a close race, and Zeke has the most opportunities left to separate himself. Go Bucks! 

Comment 03 Nov 2015

I'd like to see less designed QB runs for Cardale. I felt like last year vs Wisconsin and Bama, he was most effective only if he scrambled after he couldn't find an open receiver. This year it feels as if they've called a lot of runs for him and they have been pretty ineffective. 

Comment 21 Oct 2015

Birm also said this in his article about Williams' commitment "If he doesn't make an official change in his status in the next 48 hours, I think that's a great sign for the Buckeyes moving forward.". That was on October 18th, so looks like Birm was spot on if you consider that a little over 48 hours after his last statement, he reaffirms his commitment to OSU. Still a long way to go and what appears to be a few other visits, including to Alabama.

Comment 07 Oct 2015

Another overreaction by members of the media. What's new? Are the Buckeye's struggling? Yes, but read ESPN Austin Ward's recent article where he compares stats from this year's team to last year's team through 5 games. Not much different other than 5 more turnovers and some red zone deficiencies. It took JT a while to get things going as well last season (and we were all complaining about the play calling and Tom Herman at that time). And I'm sure we all recall that up through the Michigan game, everyone was questioning last year's team because they weren't blowing out opponents/getting enough style points. Sound familiar? If it weren't for CJ and Zeke leading the Buckeyes to a 59-0 thumping of Wisconsin in the BIG CSG, we'd be talking about a different outcome last season. Can anyone truthfully say that if JT didn't get hurt last year, the outcome would have been the same vs Wisconsin? The difference this year is that there are still 7 games left to prove to the committee that this team can pull it together and show what all this talent can do. I'm not worried. Watch what CJ and the Bucks do to Maryland this week. And then we'll see what Cowherd and Klatt and every other "expert's" tone will be.
