Darron Lee and Curtis Samuel. Lee seems to have great instinct and plays with his hair on fire, and Samuel hits the holes as fast as anyone I've seen. With an O-Line that is going to take a while to get it together, that could be invaluable in the coming weeks.

After Saturday's game vs Navy, Darron Lee has quickly vaulted up to be one of my favorite players on defense. They guy has great instinct and plays with this hair on fire. I can't wait to see him get better as the season goes on. 

Comment 02 Sep 2014

I know that the O-Line got it together in the second have of the Navy game, but I've gotta wonder weather it is because they started to gel and play better, or if they simply finally wore down the smaller Navy D-line. If the latter, that's not necessarily going to happen with V-Tech and when they get into conference play, which means it be a while before they are playing up to standard.

I'm guessing the timing of his announcement just after Damien Harris leaving UM out of his top 5 is no coincidence. This means the Buckeyes pretty much have all their eggs in on Harris....let's hope he chooses the Scarlet & Gray.

How do you know Fickell was referring to secondary when talking about depth? Considering he didn't coach the secondary last year, nor will he this year, I assume that he was talking about linebacker depth. As far as the addition by subtraction comment, makes sense to me if he feels he's got 4-5 solid guys playing LB rather than 1 superstar and 4 underachievers he might have felt he had last year. 

Comment 04 Aug 2014

Let's hope we are all wrong about Mike Thomas and this is finally the year where he shines when it counts. His physical ability is unquestionable and he seems to have established a good work ethic. Pair that with a rapport he's established with Braxton on the field and hopefully it turns into a good year for him.

Oh my god this so accurately describes my life! Good thing I've got most of the Buckeye games from this season saved on the DVR to ease the pain and depression a bit.

I think that with a little more coaching and refinement, Cardale could be a scary QB. I'm looking forward to seeing what he's really capable of. I know we haven't seen even close to his full potential yet. 

Comment 20 Dec 2013

I agree that this is going to take a team effort to right the ship on defense, ie-all 11 guys, but based on the misses I've seen from him this season, replacing Pitt Brown with Vonn Bell should be a major part of the equation. That is assuming Bell is ready for the challenge, and considering that Meyer has been pushing for him to get in there for some time now, my guess is that he is ready.

This is simply a matter of contracts and money. ESPN has a contract with SEC, Big 12, ACC, and even the lowly AAC. So virtually every other CFB conference except the BIG because of the BIG network. For those reasons, of course ESPN is going to talk about these other teams from the conferences that they represent and stand to profit more from, then Ohio State or any other BIG team. And it is as clear as day when their analyst are on air. On the lates BCS countdown show this past Sunday, tweedle dee and tweedle dumb (aka Palmer and Pollack) were talking about how excited they were for rivalries weekend and started naming off all of the rivalry games they were excited to see...well guess which one they didn't mention?? Only arguably the biggest rivalry game in history!! THE GAME. I has nothing to do with why TTUN isn't ranked either, because they definitely mentioned FSU-FL. Also Mike Belotti former Oregon coach/AD0-now ESPN analyst, was very high on the Buckeyes early on in the season. Now, even though the Buckeyes are even better now then they were back then, his tone is noticeably different on the Buckeyes..as if he has no choice but to talk the team down. He even went as far as to say they are the most likely team to get upset in their rivalry game...despite the fact that Alabama is playing the no 4 ranked team in the country away from home. This is all about business so as long as Ohio State is a part of the BIG, no matter how good the BIG gets in the coming years, do not expect any of this to change, because it wont.

"Michigan arrogance is a resistant bacteria that no amount of humiliation can exterminate." This might be the most amazing line of literary work ever written. Seriously. Well done, Ramzy!!

Comment 01 Nov 2013

Indiana may not be a great team, but they do have one of the better offenses in the county. Roby, and the Buckeye defense really have a chance to prove something by shutting down the Hoosier offense in a few weeks. This team also beat up on Penn St., and put up more points/yards on Michigan State than any other team, and Michigan State boasts the top defense in the nation. And none of us have forgotten what happened vs Indiana last season. This may sound silly to some, but from a defensive standpoint, the chance to make the biggest statement of the season is right around the corner for Roby and the Buckeyes.

An amazing job, Ramzy....simply amazing. Well done. 

Comment 28 Jul 2013

What a great and unexpected surprise! I was seriously thinking that Knox would be headed to UCLA. Glad he's a Buckeye!

Comment 26 Jul 2013

So Marcelys Jones is attending/participating in FNL? I was under the impression that he would not be attending. 

Comment 22 Jul 2013

So ESPN's Brett McMurphy is apparently reporting that video surveillance exists at Sugar and it paints a much different picture than what has been reported so far. Not to jump to conclusions but the picture that has been painted so far is a pretty bad one for Hyde, so this could mean that the video favors Hyde's innocence, or at the very least shows his involvement is not what was originally reported. Just emphasizes the importance of waiting until all the facts are in and not jumping to conclusions.

Today was a bad day to "refresh" my Twitter feed. Every time I did, it seemed like one more Buckeye got arrested, was in trouble, or got kicked off the team. What the heck did they put in the water in Columbus last week? I was expecting a punch in the gut since yesterday, but I got sucker punched in addition.  

Comment 18 Jul 2013

My guess is that he will address it next week at the BIG media days. At the very least, he'll definitely be asked about the comments Muschamp made. My guess is that he'll say he couldn't give a crap less about Mushcamp or his childish comments.
