These are the "dangerous" teams, ones with low expectations, lots of unknowns, and some real talent - the talent is a given, I feel, even though some have gone underdeveloped at OSU in the past.

A few weeks ago when I was in Tahoe, Vegas had OSU as a 110:1 long shot to win the natty, so I had to put a hundo down on them. I will be pulling HARD for lots of good surprises this year.

I think I am not going to be disappointed, even if my bet doesn't pay out.

That approach does seem to work with some <*cough, cough* Eddie George *cough, cough*> However, if there's one guy who I trust to know whether or not this might or might not work with Jalin, it's UFM. Watch and see.

Good perspective. I also am of the opinion that he's just in the middle of an unlucky streak. His percentage will drop in line by the end of the season. The Buckeyes are definitely better with him than without him.

Could it be, perhaps, that they are distracted by little things like what color of jersey they'll be wearing? IMHO this is where the coaches have to step in, tell them to quit clowning around on Twitter and Instagram, and get their heads out of their asses if they want to stay at the top of the mountain. Instead, the coaches are playing along with them.

Now I'm not a "get off my lawn" old man, and I use social media every day. But if it were to distract me from doing my job, what do you think my boss would be inclined to tell me?

All the best to you and your family. The human brain is an amazing thing, and as time goes by and the medical profession continues to progress its understanding of it, more advances will definitely be possible that can help your son.

It is unfortunate that the mainstream sports media will never hear (or if they do, repeat) stories like these about this remarkable man, and I am going to wage that there are many more. Eerily like those stories about another of our great coaches, Woody Hayes.

That's right. We haven't seen any conversation at all in this forum about OUR coaching staff and the kinds of mismatches that they'll be looking to create on both sides of the ball. I like our chances in this department. Even though the VT folks are all spewing the same things ("we were young", "we were injured", "we didn't show up again until the bowl game", etc.), our coaches have a hell of a lot of film, have had a long time to view it, and will have some definite ideas on what will work. They didn't really have that when we squared off with them last year.

In a few years time, the athletic department will look back on this and wonder what all the fuss was about and why it waited. Of course, knowing that the reluctance has more to do with fear of liability necessarily than desire for income, once again I say, "lawyers find a way to scare people out of just about everything".

Be responsible for your actions, folks. Have a good time and chill.
