to Tate Martell's fiery comments (there's no reason to get that worked up if you don't think it's going to happen)

This is a great point. Landing Fields would be epic, our highest rated signee of all time. As Kevin said, buckle up everyone! You thought Quertbackeddon of 2015 and 2018 were big...

We could do much worse poaching Yurcich from OkieSU. They have had some rad QBs and passing attacks.

Want to wish Meyer and family a very fond farewell. This has to be one of the toughest coaching jobs anywhere and Meyer was amazing. Would have had two National Championships if not for losing bowl eligibility in 2012. Achieved winning the first ever undisputed National Championship by way of the CFP. This included taking out the monster that is Alabama and Nick Saban. If only we had more chances to go head to head with them. Farewell Coach! Thank you for all you gave!

After Antonio Williams played in 12 of 14 games for Ohio State last year, including carrying the ball 57 times for 290 yards and three touchdowns, and was ruled immediately eligible to play at UNC this year, I have given up even trying to guess what the NCAA will do with transfers.

Okie, Fields isn’t the one talking trash like he HAS accomplished something. The point being made is Martell keeps running his mouth without ever have done anything either.

Urban didn't do Martell any favors by putting him in that one dimensional goal line offense. The D knew what was coming every time and Martell took the blame for its lack of effectiveness.

From Yahoo Sports:

"Texas A&M: NC State took a 13-7 lead and the Aggies steamrolled the Wolfpack from that point on. The Aggies scored 45-straight points on the way to a 52-13 win. 

Trayveon Williams scored a 93-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter that helped him set the single-season school rushing record.

NC State fans reacted appropriately":

I fully understand the concern and risk but you could also make the case that for the better teams there are several games during the year that are going to be so easily won that why risk playing your key starters at all? Does playing Haskins against a bad OOC team make sense for the athlete? I know, those are not at the end of a season when it has already been decided who makes the playoffs but the argument seems to be about deciding if any particular game is important enough to play for a player looking to move on to the NFL the next year.

I know it's the Rose Bowl with all of the pageantry, history and the parade. I also remember Buckeye Rose Bowls from 1969 until now. Happy for coach Meyer to be finally coaching this game. I am sorry to say i just can't get exited about this game with the Huskies and i don't know why. Anyone else feel this way? Here are some of my reasons:

1) Maybe because i know it's Meyer's last game.

2) Just can't get exited about Washington.

3) Because the football season went too fast?

4) i would rather be playing Georgia?

Here are some reasons to get excited, Sunny:

1.  It's the Rose Bowl -- period.  

2.  Unless you live in a tropical, sunny climate, you have 3+ months of shitty weather coming your way

3.  The Spring Game is 100+ days away -- that's a long time.

4.  After the Spring Game, August camp is a long way away.

5.  There....now you feel better about today?

Enjoy it!!  Happy New Year.

That water link...jeez.

All three times were terrifying, and I didn’t know what was wrong until I got to the hospital and hooked up to an IV, which cured everything. I needed liquid.

[...]

Still, I’ve had numerous procedures with kidney stones and frequently get leg cramps from not having enough water in my system.

How do you go through either of these things once and not go “hm, yeah, maybe I should chug down a glass of water every now and then”? Like, even if you hate the bland taste, it’s a better alternative than passing a kidney stone or going on an IV!

As for the game today, I just hope they aren’t taking Washington lightly - that secondary is legitimately awesome and Petersen is a great coach, so they can’t overlook the Huskies.

I chuckled at the thought of all of these presumably intelligent people who don’t drink water because they don’t like the taste. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do no matter how it tastes. I tell my mother-in-law dinner is delicious and eat every bite.

There are times, like when I’m working in the yard on a hot day or just finished a run, when nothing in this world tastes better than a glass of ice water.

In other Link news, how about the one-legged man who wanted to turn Oklahoma’s death row into meth row? And about the kids who stole the bus and drove it for hours and somehow managed not only to not get caught but also returned it undamaged, did they at least fill up the gas tank? Or is that too much to ask...?

I know not many will see this, but it will explain eating at my MIL's house. This happened this morning at breakfast. She bought a thin cake that only had frosting between the two layers of cake. And since she knows I like spicy breakfast sandwiches, on top of the frosting she added slices of a processed "meat" (Spam would have been an upgrade), lettuce and a pepper sauce to make a breakfast sandwich. 

She has a heart of gold, but good Lord, what make her think this was a good combo? And yes, I ate it and said Thank-you. 

If I can eat this, and it was large by the way, anyone can drink a glass of water.

I haven't been this excited about a coaching staff since it was announced that Urban was coming to Ohio State..but I honestly feel just as, if not more, excited about coach day and what he will offer as far as a coaching staff..if all these rumors are indeed true..he's already drawing attention from highly rated kids, and with the possibility of an extremely explosive offense, he will just entice more and more to want to come play for him...we just need to shore up that defense and then watch the f*ck out..

I hear what you’re saying and applaud the sentiment and really hate to rain on your Rose Bowl parade with facts but the NC was in Meyer’s third season, not the second, which ended with a thud after 24 straight wins with back-to-back losses to MSU and Clemson.

Thx. But I apologize that you or anyone took or read any inference to NC anything. I thought the 1st reference to Erbs 1st season was clear, 12-0. The second was meant to suggest supporting the first twelve & 0. That it ended in "W's."

I want to thank Coach Meyer for all that he has done for OSU. He will always deserve the best OSU can offer and I look forward to the day he dots the “i” for TBDBITL. 

I will think of him fondly as a man who set a level of performance that all future OSU coaches should aspire too. I know I am not alone, but I suspect that  DJ will not be joining me in a New Year’s toast to Coach Meyer.

It has been a pleasure to watch Urban take the Buckeyes to even higher highs than the Vest did, so thank you for everything Meyer family. Looking forward to seeing what he does in his new role within the athletic department as well. 

As for the game, is there really a chance that Urban and Dwayne go out without a huge final win on their résumés? I think not. The UW secondary is solid, but they haven't seen a passing attack this lethal. If Herbert and Oregon are the best the PAC 12 have, the Huskies haven't seen anything yet judging by what the Spartans did to the Ducks yesterday. Bucks easily today. Enjoy it while it lasts.

I’m not sure Herbert was the best QB Washington faced this year. Wazoo’s Gardner Minshew may be better but the Huskys caught him in a snowstorm. It ain’t snowing in Pasadena today unless it’s confetti.

Call me an arm chair, but with the games I watched,  I wonder how anybody considers him elite. Then you have things like Josh Allen, and how bad many NFL GMs are. Haskins is light years ahead of him. Ok, that is hyperbole. I admit it.

#walkaway

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

With at least 10 and possibly 11 offensive starters back, including Herbert, and the #5 recruiting class, I'd be willing to bet Oregon will be a top 10 team in the preseason polls. They open against Auburn in Arlington and play at Stanford in their PAC-12 opener, and have road games at Washington (which should be quarterbacked by former 5-star and UGA transfer Jacob Eason, who's most likely been Dwayne Haskins on the UW's scout team this week), plus USC and Arizona State, which should both be better.

LeftCoastBuckeye's picture

Admittedly, yesterday was the only Oregon game that I watched this season, but I was seriously underwhelmed by what I saw from Herbert.  He was better than Lewerke, I'll grant him that.   I'd put my NFL millions on Haskins and not think twice about it.

My aim, then, is to whip the Weasels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.   - William Tecumseh Sherman (with apologies)

Some random thoughts.  I believe all of the teams bowling from xichigan lost their games ( eastern, western, little bro, and the skunk weasels). Saw on football scoop that richrod has landed at ole miss as the oc.  Lets not forget GOAT, Tim May for being what a reporter/newsman should be; fair, honest, and accurate.  Kudos to the Bearcats for win 11, and not giving up in the 4th.

Really interested to see how the offense is enhanced if the OkState guy lands in Cbus.  Their offense is balls to the wall with tempo, they look to the sideline for the right call, are multiple in the run game and throw it to every part of the field.  Hopeful this happens.

Why does Yurcich’s name look familiar to me? Maybe an Ohio high school coach with the same name? In any event, his resume is impressive. Here's a fun snippet:

In 2017, Yurcich coordinated an Oklahoma State offense that became the first in Big 12 history with a 4,000-yard passer (Mason Rudolph), two 1,000-yard receivers (James Washington and Marcell Ateman) and a 1,000-yard rusher (Justice Hill).
