It's interesting how opposing fans think that because osu didn't go undefeated, it must be a bad year or something.

I'm sitting here like osu is running multiple years with minimal losses and bowl game victories. If Meyer brings in another top 3 class when it's said n done, I will be claiming his monopoly on college football recruits has officially begun. 

I like how Darron Lee said he had to fight to earn OSU's scholarship when asked how OSU recruited him. I can see more and more recruits thinking that way towards osu and that's how the Monopoly starts!!

Apreciate the updates!!

I watched a you tube video earlier from a guy that calls himself uncle Lou. He is a Georgia Bulldog fan and apparently really dislikes OSU football and their fan base. But after watching his video and reading the comment section, ...........................my current feelings are that I hope to play them or any SEC team in the post season for the next decade.

i know every fan base has idiots but I sure hope OSU fans don't make ignorant videos like the ones I see associated with the SEC.

I didn't think this was about proving anything other than factual comparisons with top coaches. Having said that, I get the feeing that most of the OSU fan base is really wanting the men's osu basketball team to match the success of the football team year in and year out. 

If there is a hidden message here, it's probably along the lines of "hey, let's bring in a top coach that can not only be consistent in reaching the big dance, but can compete in the tourney on a higher level than what Thad has. 

Also, I don't necessarily think that OSU needs to bring in an already proven big name coach (although that would awesome!!!). Jim tressel wasn't a big name at the time OSU football brought him in. And at one point, urban Meyer wasn't a big name. I can envision a gradual change with the basketball program like what had happen to the football program; John cooper did some great things for OSU but then obviously it got better with tressel. At the time, I didn't think OSU could have more success than what tressel had done, but here and now urban is doing things that will make history. 

I view Thad as the modern day John cooper of sorts in that he wins but struggles in post season. It would be nice to see the next coach (whenever it happens) to be similar to tressel. Maybe a proven winner below division one and working to get a name for himself. Etc. I think everybody can see where I'm going with this so I'll just end my rant here, lol.

Lol, what is Chinese about deep fried Oreo's? Wait, I got it, you open the Oreo to find and read your fortune.

So after I typed that I haven't seen those cookies in awhile, I looked them up on the Internet and now I feel disgusted as I found out they were founded in TSUN. Excuse me while I go rinse my mouth out with soap, lol

Comment 08 Mar 2016

I was looking for the Dutch chocolate cookies made by archway and I haven't seen them in the grocery stores in a long time. Those were my choice of cookies back in the day.

Peanut butter can almost go with anything; jelly, plain, chocolate, ice cream, bananas, etc. etc. goes good in pies. And for anybody thinking peanut butter with pop tarts is weird, they actually made a peanut butter and jelly pop tart flavor with Smuckers. I remember getting them when I was a kid and thought they were delicious. 

Comment 07 Feb 2016

From what I can tell on stats and film, I definitely wouldn't call him bad but I will wait and see how he does with his OSU career before I label him "great" or "not great". 

Comment 01 Feb 2016

Many teams have changed styles since then as well. I think it is difficult to make comparisons as there are too many variables. 

What im more interested in, is how they teach the offensive playmakers to counteract this defensive philosophy. If you are Braxton (or whomever) and you know the defense is going to be athletic and aim for the closer hip knowing a teammate will arrive on the other hip, does that change your jukes or moves knowing that the more you dance around the more time you are giving the defense a chance to catch up. 

I ask because I'm sure it's a matter of time before majority of ncaa defenses will mirror this strategy then the offense will have to adapt or change for the better.

Comment 30 Jan 2016

Keep in mind what it was like at that time with the media bashing osu over the tressel thing and how urban left Florida. He had to overcome both of those media obstacles. Now that he has established himself at OSU, I see the recruiting easier for him now. He is consistently proven himself. The logical side of me doesn't see how any player focused on reaching the NFL or even just playing NCAA for the exposure, championships, etc wouldn't strongly consider OSU now. 

This upcoming year could be huge in cementing himself even further into legendary status if he can get OSU to win 10 or more games again after have losing so much talent.

great to be a Buckeye!!!

Comment 28 Jan 2016

I have heard stories/ rumors about recruiting before scholarship limits. As I understand it, coaches would recruit who they thought were the best players even if loaded at a certain position just to keep those players from ending up on other teams and sometimes aimed specifically at other teams, i.e. Ttun.

not saying that's the case here but urban has mentioned several times that he wants the best athletes. Urban has established a trend of signing players that can play multiple positions. I'm not going to list all the names but if you are a member here and as hardcore as most of the people here, you already know. So while it may seem like many db's, I know for a fact that some of guys listed at db, have a great chance of being a receiver, or even a linebacker. Look at Lee, and Shazier. 

Comment 24 Jan 2016

I respect what you have to say. i appreciate that you are not here to troll or start up some shenanigans, however it appears that we have some immature buckeye fans as you are collecting DV's for speaking well on OSU and wishing/hoping ttun catches up. 

As rivals, there will always be tension, but I wish for the day that people can tell the difference between someone being genuine, respectful with well thought out arguments vs someone trying to stir up shit. 

IMO you should not have gotten so many DV's.

Now I'm ready to see how many DV me for this, lol

Comment 06 Dec 2015

I'm usually pro big 10 but the Connor and Archie thing really pissed me off. I don't know if he addressed his intentions with the media or if he was asked about it but it appeared to be purpose. 

I highly doubt Archie would have said or done anything to offend Connor. That leads me to believe that Cook did that because Archie is associated with OSU.

Comment 05 Dec 2015

Thanks for creating a topic to wish him happy b-day. I appreciate tressel and what he did for the university. I suppose there isn't a chance for the ncaa to realize the 2010 season should not be vacated.

Comment 05 Dec 2015

Are you saying they didn't play well because they lost? 

Because i I recall several games this year after VT that OSU won but I wouldn't have said they played we'll, especially considering the players tha returned from a dominating end of season run last year.

Comment 05 Dec 2015

To us fans that watch the games and compare stats................osu this year and last year are quite different. Houston this year and last year are quite different. When you look at the changes from both of the teams from last year and this year, it's hard to argue that Herman deserves the credit he is receiving if not more.............imo.

Comment 05 Dec 2015

I would like to add matt Keller. While undersized, he was fast, versatile and had a great pair of hands. He seemed to have always made positive plays.
