10+10=20. Damn thats alot of losses. Stoops should be named COY after this turn around. And I will refrain from calling you a name Dick.
Plus 1 for you Stu! Does Maurice come to mind when you type something like that?
In 30 years? Do you realize UK beat LSU the year they beat OSU? Do you realize they beat Auburn when they had Cam Newton?
Joker Phillips brought them down but I am telling you Stoops with his committment to Ohio high schools and his ability to penetrate the DC area is turning this program around. I enjoy rooting for these Ohio kids as well as the rest.
This years UK team from what I have seen would be very competitive in the BIG this year and could win it next year. Im stating my opinion on the talent that is being assembled and the coaching.
Ill give an example. Wilson in year 2 at UK would have been taught how to be a WR. He does not have the size or speed to dominate so he better get taught technique. Againt the lower tier BIG schools he will dominate but against better teams he will struggle. I said all along Marshall was too slow and I saw plenty of evidence of that.
Ohio State lost their identity without Miller and Hyde. They made the OL good last year. Its hard to believe in year 3 it looks more like we are in year 1 with Urbans staff and recruits.
Get real? Thats really not saying much and its surely not complimentary. The MA C champion would also win the BIG. Time to quit blaming ESPN.
Dontre must be hurt or he is over rated on his speed because every DB covered him without separation. He does not run typical WR routes. He made a good choice by going to OSU because he would not have seen the field at Oregon.
The GOOD NEWS is BIG10 play soon begins.
Or MATY MAUK!!!
I watched a ton of football yesterday and I truly believe UK could compete and possibly win the BIG even with the 40 Freshmen and Sophmores that dominate this team. Next years UK team would probably be favored to win the BIG.
Ohio State has let a TON of talent to go elsewhere for the sake of getting the top Nationally rated kid. They bypass many good kids that will play with HEART.
what we have now are kids that would blame the BIG style instead of taking ownership. I enjoy watching UK in large part because of so many Ohio born kids that make up this team. Braylon Heard and Mikel Horton RBs are both better than what we have. Next year Stumps and Conrad joins a very good receiving group. Im telling ya UK in a way is an Ohio team.
Urban and its not even close. Tressell is my least favorite. Give me Coach Hayes then Urban.
If its me you are directing that too I agree I didnt realize how many D1s came out of Dayton to Columbus area. I knew Cincinnati cranked em our. Mauk is NW Ohio.
Seriously. Is there any station or network that respects tOSU? Tressellball destroyed the entertainment value for any other sector beyond the state of Ohio. Its the truth. People hated watching the Buckeyes during his regime.
Urban is changing this offensively. Hopefully the defense comes along this year. If Oregon, Baylor and Stanford can garner respect surely the Buckeyes can.
If JT can put it together early I look for OSU to go to the NC game. Involve all of the playmakers.
Ignore the 11 TDs vs 2 INTs and over 1000 yds in 4 starts? We better hope JT does that well. Projected over a full season he would have. 33TDs vs 6 INTs. 3000 yds.
Very good decision making skillsets if you ask me.
I look for JT to do very well and I hope he can do AS well. If he can pull that off he would be instant Heisman candidate on an undefeated Buckeyes team.
Good thoughts. The offense may be improved in the sense of sticking with the playcall. This probably helps all of the playmakers on offense.
Everyone made fun of Gillespie for offfering an 8th grader in basketball. The kid ended up a bust and also was a brother of a high profile player.
Great post KB3RG. Cannot disagree with your listing at all. You shhould archive that for a future post outside of this thread. Lots of good info.
Seriously Who on our schedule besides MSU would be favored over us? If we had Auburn LSU Georgia Texas A&m on our schedule instead we would easily go undefeated Alabama has it so easy.

I dont agree saying his success was only in HS. Very impressive stats and LED his team with a winning drive in their bowl game victory. I do not know where you heard he didnt have an arm but I absolutely guarantee you are 100% wrong.
After reading the JT Barrett Texas thread it sounds like JT could be awesome I hope he does well Day 1. UT fans seemed quite angry that Mack let their local kid get away.
Interesting. The responses are all over the board. It seems Wilson, Thomas and a Smith is most often mentioned. Surprising to me is the mention by many of Green and Clark.
I would have to go with Wilson Thomas and Huerman.
Yes that is interesting but seriously he knows nothing about football. He is an embarrassment to the Jeremy Birminghams. Gene Star should have picks way before this guy. It only brings down credibility in my eyes to Crystall Ballers. There are many in that group that study and know things.
Side note: who in the heck is giving -1s to Harris to Buckeyes posts?
FYI Drew Franklin has 0 knowledge about football. Your posts pretty much sums it up. 4 picks all correct all chosen on the day of announcement.
That said I would have to think Harris chooses an established program like the Buckeye. His announcement date is interesting. In time to enroll for Spring and at the end of season. IMO to evaluate teams performances and his role in first year with the team he chooses.
Everything I have read the OSU coaching staff has him rated 3rd best TE in Ohio and nationally many above him. Maybe at camp they will find out he is #1 and offer. He has already shown at camps he is the best but evaluations from coaching staff differs. Maybe there is a flaw? The thing is Conrad is a receiver type of TE. Will that fit? No doubt in my mind Conrad will be best performer at FNL. Stoops and Marrow are really high on him.
