EXACTLY. These kids aren't old enough to get into bars (legally) until their senior year. Strict enforcement Jimbo...

Comment 10 May 2015

If a team turns the ball over 4+ times in a game, they have more than a good shot of losing. Ohio State was prepared to play in the national championship and was able to make up for the mistakes. That's one game. All I'm saying is if any team turns it over 4+ times in a game against a competent opponent, I would bet on the other team.

I'm not at all taking anything away from OSU by using the word 'luck'. Football is a sport that involves it's fair share of it. We were the better team, hands down

Comment 09 May 2015

We handled Oregon but got extremely lucky with those turnovers not biting us in the ass. Most teams don't win games when they turn the ball over that often (FSU). Oregon wins because of TOs, like you said

Comment 08 May 2015

It's amazing how forgiving we all are when it comes to our own transgressions or those of our favorite team, and how quick we are to pass judgement on those with whom we don't see eye-to-eye.

/thread. Couldn't have said it better. 

Comment 07 May 2015

I'm sorry, but I don't see too many things that are special about either Hackenberg or Cook. They're slighty above average college starters to me. I guess its a good thing I don't get paid to scout. Also don't see Cardale going that high with only 3 starts (depending on what happens this fall of course).

Comment 02 May 2015

Well there's obviously some reason he has dropped so far. It's not some conspiracy. It's not what us OSU fans want to see/hear, but he'll get his shot one way or another

Comment 01 May 2015

The Lions are in the B-range with their picks, I think, between Tomlinson, Abdullah and Carter (who I know nothing about). They at least addressed 3 areas of actual need. Really happy they took Abdullah

It's like they just can't be consistent on both sides of the ball at the same time. We're so close to being a playoff team. Some pieces just have to be adjusted in the right way.

Comment 30 Apr 2015

It's probably more the secondary than anything. I'm just not a Stafford fan. He's better than anything we've had as far back as I can remember, but he still makes so many mistakes

Comment 30 Apr 2015

Anything to make Stafford/our running game look better lol

Edit: And after hearing his interview, he sounds like a well-spoken, smart kid

Comment 30 Apr 2015

I unfortunately enjoy the show too. The naked part I can leave or take because it doesn't really add to the watching experience. Maybe like you said, it adds to the experience of the people taking part in it. 

Comment 29 Apr 2015

Anyone who think's Oregon is a 2nd tier team needs to reevaluate things. They haven't been able to win the big one yet but they've been in contention for the past 5+ years. If being in the top 5 year in and year out makes you 2nd tier then...I don't know. OSU has been known to choke in a game or 2 as well but that doesn't take away from their accomplishments.

Regarding the video, I'm not sure I would have included Bryon's dropping of the ball near the goal line in the colored, celebratory part. It stood up as a TD but wasn't a smart choice.

Comment 26 Apr 2015

I'll never buy the "he's only 18" excuse. Sure, kids can slip up and say stupid things but getting into fights/drugs etc. aren't acceptable at that age. They fully understand the consequences of their decisions. Mature 18 year olds walk away. Immature ones don't. Especially when  kids in these situations are offered something most only dream of.
