  • SPORTS MOMENT: First night game at the Shoe; Oct. 5, 2008. OSU vs. PSU. Even though it was a loss the 105,713 fellow buckeyes in attendance, my first College Gameday, and a game with my late older brother.

    It does not get better than that. Even with the loss. Absolute perfection.

I chose them as a secondary rivalry, though in reality I view them more of a tertiary rival. There is level one: ttun, then level two: Staee (or whoever is in the way of a B1G CCG, then the nits.

heismanpundit.com, which went on hiatus as of yesterday because the guy who ran it now works for the Heisman Trust, had T.J. J.T. listed as number six.

6. J.T. Barrett, FR, QB, Ohio State

Barrett was off this past weekend.  As its stands, the redshirt freshman is on pace to have the best season for a quarterback in Ohio State’s long and storied history. It’s looking more and more like the Buckeyes will be 7-1 when they take on Michigan State in East Lansing. If Barrett continues to play like he’s been playing while leading OSU over Sparty and some of the other candidates in this race slip up, he might have a shot at being the third-straight redshirt freshman to win the Heisman. He’s currently on pace for almost 4,000 yards of offense and 45 touchdowns in 12 games. Beat Michigan State and he’ll be able to add to those numbers in the Big Ten title game. If Ohio State is 12-1 at that point and primed for a playoff spot, Barrett’s production could propel him to the Heisman.

Season Stats: 88 of 133, 1,354 yards, 66.2%, 17 TDs, 5 INTs, 186.3 rating, 276 rush yards, 2 TDs

Season Pace: 3,249 passing yards, 41 TDs, 662 rush yards, 4 TDs.

FWIW here's the beat writer for NJ.com's  #hottake of tonight's action.

Sounds like something Jameis would say.

Comment 10 Nov 2013

What's really odd there is they are willing to take our defense coordinator to replace their OC. Just sad.

Comment 09 Nov 2013

It's a bit more than just some folks being too PC...

The end of the rant is a bit overboard, IMHO. 

That's why I have no respect for the players that went here, I have no f****** respect for you b****. I have no respect for you little quittin'-ass b****. That's why you got your ass kicked, quitter. That's what I call y'all, all little f***ers. Mother******, I don't need to respect you, I don't give a f*** about you, b****. There, it's true. I don't f***** care about complainers, cause you mother****** are quitters. Gotta get out mother*******. I don't give a f*** about you, b****.

Could care less. I respect football players, but I respect football players, mother******. But you ain't no football player, you little b****. You're a little f****** b****, that everybody laughs at over and over, because they know you're a f***** quitter.

Comment 09 Nov 2013

It's always you, it's never anybody else! It's you, it's you, it's you, and it's who you are. Just saying, it's you, you're never gonna improve, ever! You'll always be f***** up! And as soon as you get one and everybody else, you're gonna...(inaudible)

You're right I'm pissed.

(silence)

All comes down to having pride, period.

(pause)

So shower folks.

(pause)

That's what all I was pissed off about. How did so many kids go bad? I haven't been around players where so many go bad, so s***bird. I mean this is s***bird football! It's bad. As bad as I've ever been around, Jesus. Bad as I've ever been around. Just s***bird football. I've never been around players where you've coached the same s*** for months. I've never been in a place like that. Gotta coach the same s*** over and over. Gotta coach practice, gotta coach (inaudible), are you kidding me? (inaudible) Just once, and I gotta coach the same s***.

There's a lack of focus now. There's a lack of pride, is what that is. But more importantly, self-respect. That's what it really is; you have no respect for yourselves. Why should anybody else, if you've never looked at yourself and said, you know what, I'm not falling into that trap, I'm not (unintelligible).

That's why I have no respect for the players that went here, I have no f****** respect for you b****. I have no respect for you little quittin'-ass b****. That's why you got your ass kicked, quitter. That's what I call y'all, all little f***ers. Mother******, I don't need to respect you, I don't give a f*** about you, b****. There, it's true. I don't f***** care about complainers, cause you mother****** are quitters. Gotta get out mother*******. I don't give a f*** about you, b****.

Could care less. I respect football players, but I respect football players, mother******. But you ain't no football player, you little b****. You're a little f****** b****, that everybody laughs at over and over, because they know you're a f***** quitter. They know from the third quarter and halftime that you quit. If you wanna call it what it is. Do you know why it happens? Because you allow it to happen out here. You just come out here on Thursdays and f*** around, come out on Wednesdays and f*** around...

Woody and Urban both are God fearing men. And I personally find it extremely ignorant, hypocritical and classless.

I'm pretty certain both of those fine gentlemen have used far, far worse.

I'll grant you ignorant and classless (while respectfully disagreeing- I'm fairly confident the usage was meant as humor). But how in the holy name of The Flying Spaghetti Monster do you get hypocritical? This is not a religious website in any way shape or form. 

Comment 06 Oct 2013

I walked out the room to tend to my youngest son and Miller coughed up the ball the first time. I didn't leave the room again. I'm not superstitious, but I am wearing all of my buckeye beads, and my OSU shirt, hat, pants, and shoes...

Comment 06 Oct 2013

Because it would kill him.

Need I remind you how a certain bobblehead up north fared when he carried the ball 35 times a game? 

Comment 29 Sep 2013

I have had seats all across the Shoe in recent years, and I've been in some areas where most people sat. I have never had someone yell at me or call the ushers over for standing though. 

I scream like a lunatic every third down, participate whole-heartedly in the O-H-I-O chants, yell at every bad call, and generally do everything I would at home.

For the 2008 Penn State night game, I was in section 15A. The place was rocking so much that everyone kept getting shifted around on the bleachers, far off of their assigned spot. There was one older lady who kept trying to move the mass of people, those standing and into the game, back to their little numbered section of bleachers. 

I don't understand the mentality of those fans at all.

Comment 29 Sep 2013

Sorry, I thought he redhirted 2010, thus he was eligible for a 5th-year senior year of eligibility.

He redhirted 2009, meaning this is his 5th year. Even better, we don't have to face him again.

Comment 29 Sep 2013

I agree that NW could be a trap game, but they can definitely compete against anyone in the Top 10 right now.

Comment 29 Sep 2013

Abbrederis is a redshirt senior, so only one more year to have to deal with, max. That's if he doesn't head to the NFL, which I think (or hope) he will.

Comment 15 Sep 2013

As others have said, when you play against Cal's "Bear Raid" offense, you're going to give up yards. Our defense still held them to fewer yards (and fewer snaps) than they average. I thin our D is in pretty descent shape.

Comment 15 Sep 2013

While not illegal, I think this is one of those underhanded tricks that have no place in organized sports. The numbers on the jerseys are there specifically to make the players easily identifiable. I'm all for trickeration on the field, but this just felt dirty and wrong. 

If it looks like cheating, and feels like cheating...

Comment 15 Sep 2013

I wish I had your optimism. The win today did indeed feel solid, but I'm sure we'll be seeing the Mich*gan we saw against ND, not the sloppy mess we saw today.

Northwestern is my father's pick for our first possible loss this year, I disagree.
