Elite teams are not lining up to play OSU the 1st 4 games and we are not looking for 4 straight tough games to begin the season either.

Huh?? Do you not remember the home and homes with Texas and USC in recent past? Who could've known Miami and Va Tech would be meddling in mediocrity back when we scheduled them? Plus, have you seen our future schedules? Home and home dates with Oklahoma, TCU, Oregon, with back to back years thrown in there where we play both Texas and Notre Dame in the same season.

Unless by "Elite teams" you meant SEC teams, I would have to say that elite teams are literally lining up to play us. Of coarse, being a FBS team, it's not likely you'll see us on any SEC schedule (just ask Tennessee).

Good call Fatpants; personally I never leave home without my green though

While having all 3 on the field to start the season would be sweet, realistically what do y'all think the chances are that no starter is named prior to kick-off in Blacksberg? Imagine that scene, with all 3 standing on the sideline next to Urban as we receive the kick, then one of them (my early gut feeling is JT) leads the offense out for the first drive. Wouldn't it be magical?

You nailed most of the points I was going to throw out there, but it's worth noting too that Marcus has more than double the TD passes than Braxton with less overall INTs. Braxton is by far the better runner though.

I saw this a couple weeks ago or whenever it went through, and wondered if the "tucking the jersey under the shoulder pads" was a reference to the EZ way. Bummer.

Strange that in all his years with the league, Phil never encountered this rule before? Maybe he just didn't realize the bounds of the rule extended to team presidents, but I find it strange for such a traveled member of the league to slip up and comment on said player.

Or maybe Russ is such a freak that he just HAD to say something...

I was going to say the same thing 407... "So what did we learn from all this?" 

Comment 15 Feb 2015

Bingo, well put. When I look back at the Tress era, I always felt as though we had a top notch program with a coach that was among the best and that, if things fell into place all around us, we always had a chance to bring it home. But today, with what Urban has built up in such short order, I feel not just among the best, but that OSU is on the cusp of true untouchable greatness. It's a whole new level now.

Funny that the best most of them can come up with is something to the tune of, "Bad decision, OSU is so talent rich you may not play. Should have come to Michigan where bench warmers can start!"
