I don't like this take at all. ridiculous. Here is an Ohio boy, loved around the country who grew up a couple hours away. Who better to get butts in the stadium? Who better to change the felon image of the Bungles to a more positive one. Players don't want to come to Cinci and I don't blame them. The whole organization sucks top to bottom. Burrow is the first step in turning around the image which in turn will hopefully create a more positive image and attract more free agents. Please don't tell me its all about money when it comes to free agents. I'm sure proven all stars take the teams chances to win the Super Bowl into consideration.
Que the monsoon....
I've spent a lot of time in Columbus, grew up in that area. I've now lived in Los Angeles for 25 years. All the above things are correct. Traffic sucks, Taxes are high, homelessness is terrible etc. That said it's still way better than Ohio even though my family is there and my love for Ohio will never go away. A post above said it correct. If you have money, which both Urban and Gene do, its paradise. If you don't, it can be horrible. There is no humidity, no bugs, and 300 plus blue sky days every year. I surf in the morning and drive 2 hrs to snow ski in the same day.
Go Bucks. Yes, my SC fans out here are giddy about Urban rumors.
Like it! Let's hope. The question is whether Fields can deliver the ball to those great WR's while under little more pressure : )
52-17...I hope so but I don't think Fields is ready yet to put up 52 against a solid defense. I just didn't see any holes for dobbins which concerns me. My prediction is 31-24 in 1st OT. I have too many years of watching Buckeye football underachieve against lesser teams, especially when we have a new QB or running QB. Another prediction is Master Teague becomes a beast
Some calling him things like "Little Man", and making fun of his first name like a bunch of elementary kids would do...Made me sick.
The real douche bags are the adults hiding behind their key pads insulting a kid who gave his all for us the past 2 years.
I hope Tate lands in a good school and tears it up on the field. There is no honor, loyalty, decency or honesty anywhere these days. The Buckeye nation used to be a tight knit family and we would get kids from Ohio for the most part and it was special. What happened to Tate wouldn't have happened under Tress or Coop for that matter. He may have been beaten out eventually but he would have had his chance.
It's a mercenary sport now. That said I'm glad we got Fields but I would have made him earn it over Tate.
I know this is the unpopular opinion and there are no guarantees when you commit but I'm all for Tate. He has given everything for this program esp on the scout team. There has to be some loyalty to a kid when he choses OSU. If he is undersized and prob won't start let him know before he commits. Otherwise let him start and prove it on the field one way or the other.
The kid is a baller. A winner and has yet to lose a football game. AND he's all Buckeye for the last 2 years.
Maybe he’s waiting for the official Haskins declaration to the NFL? I would if I was him: )
I was there yesterday as well. Right above the tunnel where most were Buckeyes but there were a few UW mixed in. I heard the same thing - more noise from the UW side - Thought it was because I was closer to them - not sure.
So ignorant. If a #8 seed can't beat a #1 seed then please explain to me how Purdue beat OSU? Or how Syracuse and Pitt both beat mighty Clemson over the past couple years?
How did Iowa state beat OK?
The ONLY thing that makes sense is an 8 team playoff with all power 5 champs and 3 at large bids. No FCS on schedules and 9 game conference schedules for all.
Purdue was kind of an aberration, or at least I hope so but there was Maryland and Nebraska as well. Our D has been better as of late but Northwestern still moved it pretty easy at times against us so we will see.
no way 6 teams. This is ridiculous. A bye is too huge in football. Too much injury possibility makes it unfair. AND who do you think will keep getting the Bye? Bama, Clemson. They already get a bye mid November when they play Citadel. I just don't get this 6 team appeal. It makes no sense when you can go to 8 and have same number of games.
The Bye is way to much advantage. This isn t basketball, it's a physical sport and a tough playoff game creates lots of chances for key injuries. 8 teams is perfect.
Georgia would not have gotten in over OSU. Because neither team got in they were free to put GA at #5. But no way do they put GA in with 2 losses over a 1 loss conference champ OSU.
how have they shit the bed? They are 2-2
The BIG was a PERFECT 7-1
Ca you imagine the Buckeye nation response if Dwayne Haskins came out with a decision/statement that said he is staying to develop another year with Day and to help the Buckeyes and their new coach transition smoothly? That would save recruiting classes as well.
He would be revered as one of the greatest Buckeyes of all time. Lets face it- it could be risky but my guess is he would continue to light up the stats.
Meyer is more than a coach. He is family. He's familiar to us because he's an Ohio guy born and raised Buckeye. A lot like Tress in that way. We bring him into our living room every Saturday and we get involved with his family- Shelley and her teaching, the son and daughters throughout their school, the new grandkids. Urban allowed us to come into his family.
When he was hired it was the greatest home run of my lifetime as an OSU fan and that goes back to Bruce when I was in college. Not just because he was a 2 time champ but rather because he was a Buckeye through and through.
Long live UFM..Go Ryan Day... and Go Bucks
I truly believe Saban is going to look at what Stoops did and now Meyer and he's going to realize what a grumpy pressure cooker life he's led and how he wasted his last 5 years or so. He could've retired with 3 natty's and started to transform from the Grumpy curmudgeon to a happier less stressed person.
If his hair was blonde his head might be mistaken for a male organ
can't he prepare at OsU?
I really liked last years perfect 7-1 bowl record
It's amazing to me that after the investigation clearly showed Urban followed protocol, the courts have yet to press domestic violence charges against Smith, there were absolutely ZERO witnesses to any abuse, her own parents sided with smith, and her bestie Michelle Herman went on the record and said she never heard of or witnessed any abuser, the narrative still doesn't want the truth. Just what fits their anti OSU or "me too" narrative. Whoever said the truth will set you free was before the social media age.
Mullins isn't qualified to be a garbage man (no disrespect to garbage men). Let's give a pass to Notre Dame who doesn't have the guts to play in a conference and risk it all in a championship game.
It will be a good game and living here in LA I can't wait to go to the Rose Bowl! Even though I pass it almost daily : )
