I honestly hope he does go somewhere else at this point. I hope he finds success, but I do not see him being a team player. 105 guys buying in and fighting for each other is what just won us a title. I am not sure that fits him. We have Collier and Burrow, we will be fine either way.
I think you people are crazy to not think B. Miller will be the starter. There was a reason Cardale was the 3rd string to start the year. There were two better players on the team and they're still are. I think it would be best if JT started and Miller switched to H back, but I think in the end, #5 is under center!!
In my opinion, it's an embarrassment that Gene Smith, the AD who does nothing when it comes to this team's on field performance, gets a higher bonus than 5 of our coaches. He should be embarrassed as well. I truly believe this guy's arrogance cost us a title in 2012, he is already one of the highest paid ADs in the country, and he is getting higher bonuses than the guys actually coaching the players. Pretty sad IMHO...
They aren't going to play 3 quarterbacks!!!
If each team has 100 players (85 scholarship and 15 walk ons) it would only cost them $750,000 to do this for all 3 games... It seems only right to do. Hell make is $2000...
Great move by the CFP!!! I think you will see them do this for both round of games going forward. It is a very smart move on their part. Great publicity and rather cheap. I mean assume that you have 100 players who have parents going to each of the three bowl games (85 scholarship and 15 walk ons). You have 100 players x 2 teams per game x 3 games = 600 players x $1250 = $750,000 Very cheap publicity that goes a long way...
CFP is funding it, which helps the NCAA. If the NCAA isn't funding it, you don't have to do it for other sports!!
Email Chris at [email protected] Give him your budget and he will hook you up. I got seats in 201 row 1 for around $700...
I got my tickets through tiqiq.com... Ended up paying about $700 for section 201 row 1. If you want to go with them, check out their site and email [email protected] that is the guy who helped me out and he was great!!
Just good ole boys who love their team. They weren't disrespectful, but just think their team is better!! I think mine is better!!!
Don't think you will see it expand any time soon. With the crazy ratings they got for the two semifinal games, they will keep it this way for a while. School Presidents and ADs were against the idea of an 8 team for academic reasons. You either add a round of games at the end of fall semester, which is during finals week for most schools. Or you add a round during the first week of Spring semester, which would have the kids missing the first week of the semester. I see it staying at 4 for the next 4-5 years, at least!!!
They said earlier in the week that his decision was already made, just waiting to announce it. So that game had no effect on his decision. I hope he is a Buckeye, but I agree that he is probably all in with Oklahoma...
I am not sure people are being realistic with this game. I see around 80-85 yards for EzE. Another 50-60 from Marshall. Best run stop defense we will play all year, despite what stats say.
It very easily could be Bama stirring up shit to take the focus off this game...
Braxton has handled this situation with as much class as any athlete I've seen. He is a stud college athlete and therefore probably loves the attention when he gets it. And I am 100% positive if you were in his shoes, you would be eating up every bit of attention you could get as well. Enjoy your accomplishment and don't let it be overshadowed because you're a little butthurt that quite possibly the most recognizable student at OSU got a little more attention than you did at graduation!!!
While I don't see any of them going there, I could see Collier possibly looking to transfer. He is a freshman, getting a redshirt, but JT will be here at least two more years, maybe 3. That would make Collier going into his redshirt junior year. With Burrows and Gibson behind him, you never know.
Young coach who was born in Ohio and said his being at OSU was a dream job. While I wish he would stay, let him go get HC experience at someone else's expense and come back to us in 10 years as the next leader of the Buckeyes!!!
He will be a senior next year. Joey will have to stay his senior year to have them both. Highly unlikely, but we can pray!!
I think little brother will see how well Vrabel/Johnson have prepared Joey to get to the NFL. I mean realistically that is the ultimate goal for both of these brothers, and a legitimate goal. I think if he sees OSU prepared his brother to be a top 10 NFL draft pick, he will be all in with the Buckeyes.
Bryce Harper tweeted after the announcement he was getting tickets. I asked him if he wanted to sponsor me. I think it is pretty cool he is a huge Buckeye fan. Guess his gf plays soccer at OSU.
Easy to build powerhouses when you can recruit... just ask Urban!!!
Did you forget your sarcasm font or are you really wound that tight???
I like where our line was at last Saturday. To see Frazier and Carter all contributing was huge. That gives our studs a break. If our D line can play like that in the bowl, I like our chances.
Very seriously doubt we will miss Washington. He is a junior and I don't see him leaving early.
