Talent-wise it will be MSU.

But, I voted for TTUN.  It's the week after MSU, it's at their place, I first started watching OSU in the '90's, and the best thing Hoke did was get his kids up for The Game (kind of  like the anti-Cooper).  We should have blasted them all over the field the last 3 years and those games were close.  I don't think you see a dropoff with Harbaugh.

Of course they could be playing with an entirely new roster after all 12 go pro.

Comment 22 Jan 2015

He'd have 5 or 6 himself if they hadn't gone to The Chase.  I know for a fact he would have won it all the first year if they had kept the status quo.

I have a shirt I wear while watching every buckeye game since 02.  So, yeah it has a few losses in it, but it is the shirt I wore during the magical 02 season and my shirt wearing policy (how, when, where) was a clear factor in us taking the title that year so it has quite a bit of good mojo.  It has now seen 2 titles.  

My dad and I are huge fans but we usually watch at our own houses and not together.  We always call after games and talk.  BUT NEVER BEFORE THE GAME ENDS REGARDLESS OF SCORE.  We blew it once during the Orange Bowl when we were ahead at halftime.  We all know how that went.  This year for the last 2:30 of the game it was obvious we would win, but neither of us picked up the phone till the clock hit zeros.  Best part, this superstition is completely unspoken between us.  We both just get it.

Yeah, they will be in but I don't see a very long tourney trip in their future.

My favorite comment was the guy who said " you lie, there are no DP videos". I laughed out loud

This whole conversation is us getting way ahead of ourselves, but I guess that is what makes it fun.  This is the best take I've read.

Also, getting 2 to new york is unlikely as teammates typically take votes from each other and even if it happens it probably means that a Buckeye does not win due to the aforementioned vote splitting.

Can't say I expected that with the press conference.

He seems fairly well grounded in this decision and I think a sign of his maturity is how easily he said he came to this decision.

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Not surprised at any of this.

I predict the following.....

Miller -  A couple different things could happen.  He transfers to play QB elsewhere.  His injury never heals right and he stays on as a grad asst. with Urban.  He stays here and plays a different position, say H-back.  I don't believe he will be playing QB for us.

Barrett - could transfer or stay.  I predict he stays but he loses 1st string to......

Jones - assuming he doesn't go pro, will win the starting job over Barrett.  Barrett sticks around after Jones goes pro after 2015 we have 2 years of Barrett (or maybe one if he lights it up and goes pro himself after 2016).

I would never have thought I would have predicted this at all.  I kind of hope it all turns out this way with Miller's path leading to good health and staying with us even if it isn't at QB.

As someone who attended UH I will provide the answer below.......

At game time, Cougar fans show their support by making the "cougar sign," made by folding the ring finger of the right hand toward the palm. The tradition dates back to 1953, when Shasta I, the presiding cougar mascot, lost a toe in a cage door on her way to a game. The opposing team, the University of Texas, mocked UH by imitating the cougar's injury. The Cougars soon adopted that gesture as a symbol of pride.

Yeah, I've seen the bikini pictures.  She makes the YES list.

Bravo DJ. I'd love to record all the film room and other stuff being shown on ESPN networks but I would be afraid to jinx it. Only reason to record it is to watch later after we win. Can't assume we win or I jinx it. Ugh, this sucks.

She was on a bunch of actual news sites lately. Apparently she is most searched porn star on one of the porn sites and she is Lebanese and created a controversy by filming a porn in a hijab. While i cant say I don't know any pornstar I had never heard of her till foxnews, cnn, buzzfeed, etc put out stories
Comment 10 Jan 2015
I agree with you DJ. Love for him to come back but gun to my head I predict he leaves. I also think there is a good chance his shoulder doesnt heal and he doesnt get much playing time wherever he goes and his career ends with a fizzle instead of a bang. That would be sad as he deserves much better. I hope he stays but hope he heals even more and he gets to play well again.

But it's so soft.
