Birm any chance he just takes time off and then comes back?
Definitely not the news I was hoping for, hope his dad gets better and good luck to him. He will be missed
Im sorry but A&M a favorite? I just gotta believe our offense would put about a 100 (read: a lot) points on that swiss cheese D. I can see the arguments for the other teams but a 2 loss A&M team a favorite over an undefeated OSU team? what is going on?
I would have no problem with OSU offering Herman 1mil+ to keep him around and put him in a league with the Chad Morris' and Kirby Smarts' of the world. Hes an all star coach and as others have said I would love for him to stay till he gets a big time head coaching gig.
My question is, if Fickell leaves does he take Vrabel with his as his best friend/DC? and I have always thought Withers would be the first to leave. Hes already been a Head Coach and hes got so much experience plus zero ties to the state of Ohio, I could see a school like UVA come calling.
This scenario would lead to a completely new defensive staff plus the idea of potentially losing Herman as well.
I love having great coaches but dang thats a lot to potentially lose and then replace in one offseason.
All I can say is im gonna enjoy them as long as we have them and if we can get that crystal ball then all is good in my book
Nope I still expect us to run the table and hope to see 'Bama or Oregon in the title game. All the SOS talk will cause the media to proclaim how over rated we are and how much better the other team is and Urban comes out with a pissed off football team ala Florida '06. The defense has some work to do but they are talented and I have confidence that by Jan. 6th they'll be ready.
Prove me right boys
For a non traditional basketball power house that trophy case sure looks good!
The fact that this poll even exists and doesn't even include our top 2 options at the position is just insane. I really hope they are able to get everybody enough touches so everybody sticks around.
I love these so much. So classy, creative, and plain awesome looking. Just another reason I love this site.
Boom goes the dynamite!!!!
I agree with TOAD in that there is a lot of turnover, more so than the tressesl era. I guess I'm just not used to kids wanting to transfer FROM OSU, usually it's TO OSU. As a fan I just don't understand how anybody could leave the program I love so much but regardless I wish the best to him in his future endeavors.
I don't like this question. I went with roby cause of the suspension plus I think if we have the national championship type caliber season I think we're gonna have Braxton is gonna have to have an epic season and so is shazier cause the lbs are unproven besides him. Roby could miss time with suspension and the secondary is pretty deep so some of those guys might steal some picks from him. Hopefully all 3 are 1st teamers and holding a crystal ball at the end but what do I know
I think its easy for us to sit back and say you would offer a couple kids in order to get a stud but I don't think it's that easy. Those 85(82) scholarships go really quick and are too precious to a coach trying to develop depth to be offering package deals to kids. As acrossthefield pointed out, recruiting is a crapshoot at best. So if you're offering a package deal for 3 kids to get 1 you really want and that 1 doesn't pan out, you've now lost 3 ships.
Hey nothing weird about a shower beer. Can't think of two more refreshing enjoyable things than a nice shower and a cold beer. Combining the two is just natural
Isn't Warriner technically co-offensive coordinator with Herman?
Does anybody know any specifics of his eligibility and how many years he has? Also does the fact that he played professionally in Australia affect his status in any way?
Kid sounds like a stud and will be a huge boost to our special teams and our championship run I just hope everything goes smoothly NCAA-wise. Never know what those clowns are gonna do next.
Shoot forget lebron. Add Oden, draft Otto porter, move Varejao to the 4 and you've got a nice young starting lineup with Kyrie and Dion
Give it a couple of years. It seems like every school here in VA has a program starting in the first grade. Public, private, wealthy areas, poor areas. Doesn't matter. The sport really overlaps well with football as a spring sport which is why I think it will spread in Ohio. Other than OL and maybe DTs there is a position in lacrosse that a football player can play. Plus it's a good way to stay in shape and be able to hit people in the spring.
As an OSU fan growing up in VA I played football and lacrosse much like a ton of athletes in Virginia and have been hoping for OSU to get a good lacrosse team for a long long time. This season has been so fun for me to follow and I hope the team can make it to the semis and beyond. Also the Big Ten league would be huge for OSU lax. Being able to play against Maryland and potentially Hopkins in league play would be huge for recruiting the Maryland and Northern VA hotbeds. It would bring more validity to the program.
Looking forward to the future of the lacrosse program and the game on Sat.
Second, I just want a reason to go to Nashville
One thing I noticed is he has a bad habit of picking up his front foot off the line instead of stepping forward with his back foot which wastes critical time and energy. It's a simple fix but it will do wonders for his ability to get separation off the line making him much more explosive. I like this kids potential cause with some coaching he could be a legit outside wideout.
As a giants fan, I like Sabino's chances because of our need for linebackers. If he continues to progress the way he did before he got hurt he could be a special teamer and in the mix for the two deep. Only thing hurting his chances is Fewell's recent use of 3 safeties a lot like how our buckeyes use the star
Almost hoping ole miss makes it to the elite 8 so craft can completely shut down that Henderson fool. God that guy pisses me off
Just did two back to back fist pumps while in my grad school class here in va. Everybody including the professor stopped and stared at me and asked me what got me so excited, I told him urban Meyer is a stud and osu is gonna take over college football. He told me I was either going to pay attention to his lecture or have to leave so I got up and left. Totally worth it.
Does anybody know where I can get the jacket urban is wearing in this gif? I've been searching the interwebs and can't find it.
Also welcome to buckeye nation Conley, solid pickup
