I've been a Buckeye fan since birth. I remember quite fondly my dad and I would climb onto the roof of the house every Saturday and early Sunday morning in order to adjust the antenna so that we could watch THE Ohio State Buckeyes' games. The ones that were not live, we always listened to religiously on the radio, and then stayed up late (it was the weekend) in order to receive our edition of the Dispatch so we could read the game recap as Hot-off-the-press as was possible at 3am. Watching the Buckeyes Replays on WOSU Sunday mornings at 9am were always the highlights of the fall in my opinion. And we NEVER missed them. Sometimes even being late for Church on occasion. Well..the Pastor at our church made the mistake of asking my Dad to try and be a little earlier next time on this one particular Sunday.This happened to be the Sunday before Thanksgiving and as it turns out was the same Sunday of WOSU's replay of the '87 TSUN game, Erle Bruce's last as Head Coach..My father quite emphatically explained to the entire congregation that his God..Our God is indeed a Buckeye!! And the very mere request of such a preacher could only be the work of those Devilish wolverine fans..Needless to say, we never stepped foot back inside his church. So for me, Buckeye Football is as close to religion as there is.

Offensive weapon. (...)

So your going with the Denard Robinson position?  +1 for your thoughts though.  I think he will play a major role as well.

Comment 30 Jul 2015

I was kinda hoping he could play defensive end. That would show his true versatility..

Comment 28 Jul 2015

I'm going with Ginn, but only because i have never seen Braxton catch a pass yet.

Teddy G., was no where near as shifty as Braxton but you don't have to be if no one can catch you anyway. I do believe that both these guys wouldve been perfect for the position though.  But Braxton's ability to throw the ball will be a devastating weapon to have in the arsenal.  If he proves he can run routes properly and catch the football then imho, he vaults to the top.

Comment 27 Jul 2015

Yeah.. Thats one way.  We ran both wishbone and the 'Double D' or diamond variations of the triple option in high-school as well that allowed for our backs to get into a mismatch situation on the outside.  There are som many variations that can be successful, it's crazy.

Comment 27 Jul 2015

Agreed Silver.  You dont have to make a bone-crushing block on every play. Sometimes just the simple fact that a defender has to account for Braxton essentially taking his man out of the play will be enough.  Percy Harvin was never know to be a great blocker, yet it worked out pretty well for him.

Comment 27 Jul 2015

Yeah.. The Easy Rider Rodeo here in Chillicothe over Labor Day Weekend is always a pretty good time.  We've had over 100,000 folks here before but it has toned down a bit since the time I first started going back in the day. Probably less than half that amount now though.

Palmer Fest during rush week in Athens was always fun also.  Not as well known as their Halloween party, but just as big and much better weather to pass out drunk in.  (Thank you God for all those couch porches)

You need an extended cab 4x4 Diesel pickup.  Plenty of room for the kids.  Large enough you can run those other flatland dumbasses off the road on I-70/270.  Then smoke the ones you cant.  Convert it over to grease/cooking oil that you were just going to throw out anyways and you will great milage and even more horsepower.  

Hopefully it will help deter the wife from borrowing your ride.  However, if she wants to drive yours even more then you know youve got a keeper.  It has a tailgate for the games.  Plus it will last forever.  I'm sure you can find decent used/like new one for around $25,000 or less.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

I didnt want to start a new thread on this, but the question I have is:

Who would be a more prolific H-back in this hypothetical scenario?

i would assume Teddy G from the 2005 squad would be the obvious choice there, and now that Braxton is changing positions, would you pick him over Ted Ginn, Jr. without ever seeing him play a down at that position?

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Got to meet Pepper Johnson one time at a camp I attended.  Great dude.

Still the most underated Tecmo Bowl player of all-time. The combination of him and L.T. was absolutely dominant.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Devin Smith is not on the 2015 team.  While his stats are impressive, he is not relevant to this discussion though.

Comment 25 Jul 2015

I can understand Dantonio's mindset of not wanting a player you have worked hard to recruit, to not vistit another school.  But if he thinks that Cupp should have passed up the chance to work with the best line coach in the country in Ed Warriner then he's freaking crazy. Bollman will have plenty of time to screw this kid up for the next four years.

Comment 24 Jul 2015

This is exactly the reason I dont think we are going to break as many records as people on here seem to think this year.  I believe that once the Bucks get control of the game that the coaches are going to get some of the younger guys some reps in as early as possible. Not only for the experience but also to rest the starters for another championship  run.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

I know I am most looking forward to the *ichigan State game more than any this year.  I was at that game last year as well. It was a blast watching our Bucks silence all the Sparty fans. 

 Coach D has built a fine program up North.  Should be another slobberknocker.  It's a shame that it has to be a 3:30 start because of being the week before Ttun.,

Comment 23 Jul 2015

Not to be a downer here, but during the 40s and 50s the NIT was a much bigger deal than the NCAA tournament.  I would be interested to see how many, if any members of the College Football Hall of Fame ever took part in the NIT.
