That's not going to happen. Spielman, Griese, and Galloway are color commentators. It will always be one of those guys paired up with a play by play person. 

Comment 22 Nov 2014

I have to think that rumors of his reinstatement aren't swelling just because of the fact that he as an appeal by itself. It feels like someone's sources are indicating that Spence has a good chance to win the appeal. If so, great for Spence on a personal front, because hopefully it means he's getting his life back together, and great for him and OSU on a football front, for obvious reasons that I need not specify. Crossing my fingers!

I think that perhaps we are looking a little too much into the meanings behind a 17 year old kids tweets. Kentucky is no longer the only threat, it seems as if Alabama is in it now as well and he is attending their rivalry game instead of OSU's. Unless he changes his mind last minute and decides to come to Columbus instead, I wouldn't suggest we hold our breath on this one.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I simply do not see a 1-loss, non-conference champ Miss St team staying ahead of the Buckeyes if the Buckeyes win out, provided they win impressively when expected. I strongly believe TCU will lose to Texas next week, so they will take care of themselves, and seeing that the Buckeyes are already ahead of Baylor, and an OSU win vs Wisconsin will be more impressive than a Baylor win vs Kansas St., I don't see Baylor being a threat.

Let's not forget that FSU still has to play Florida, which can match FSU's offensive speed on the defensive side of the ball. Not to mention these kids are going to be playing lights out to try and get the Gators to a bowl game, and send Muschamp out on a high note. If the Gators pull off the upset, then this conversation is moot because then we'll be talking about whether the Buckeyes will be playing Alabama or Oregon in round 1. 

Comment 20 Nov 2014

In my opinion the fact that he has an appeal hearing on the 25th is key. Either people know this and it is causing them to speculate that his suspension will be reversed for no reason other than the fact that he has an appeal hearing. Or there are actual sources close to OSU, Spence or the BIG etc that have been given legitimate reasons to believe that he will become eligible. Also lines up with the OSU spokesperson denying any knowledge of it as they would be smart enough to not comment or speculate until after the hearing. 

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Dave Biddle tweeted that he has an appeal hearing with the league on 11/25, so no changes to his eligibility would occur until then.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Well if we are going to talk about players who under-performed in the V-Tech game, I think the list goes way beyond Corey Smith. Let's be honest. 

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Very true and good point. A comeback in life is a far bigger win than a comeback in football.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

I feel like a coaches salary should be competitive just like everything else in CFB. Urban Meyer, without a doubt, should be the highest paid coach in the BIG. If the Buckeyes make it into the CFB Playoffs this year and maybe even the title game, I won't be surprised if he gets a big raise and extension. It would be the smart play. Assistants need to be paid more as well. Buckeyes are pretty far down that list when it comes to Asst. Coaches and the only reason Fickle is making so much is that he kept most of his pay bump he got for coaching the team in 2011.

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.

Comment 02 Sep 2014

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. 

Comment 06 Aug 2014

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. 

Comment 06 Aug 2014

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.
