Thanks for sharing that clip. I am happy for Joe Burrow and think he will have a terrific year at LSU. Go Bucks!
Wow! That's impressive for any young man and especially one in high school. Go Bucks!
For me it's simply about moving on. While whomever finds their way into the QB room will have issues learning the playbook, our QB gurus will simplify things so a newcomer has the best chance of being successful. Regardless, an injury to Justin Fields will make for a long fall. Go Bucks!
Speculating about the true reason for Baldwin's departure is less exciting for me than thinking about possible additions to the Buckeye QB room. Go Bucks!
The coaching staff will add another QB, most likely from the transfer portal. All will work out. Keep the faith! Go Bucks!
Things happen for a reason. While that reason isn't always apparent, someone else will grab the opportunity now available in the QB room.
Keep the faith! Go Bucks!
Chicago Connection. Your post speaks to and addresses the issue with Baldwin's entry into the transfer portal...is he really interested in being the man at a lower level or, at best, to be int he same spot as he would have been at OSU?
In truth it doesn't matter now. Our staff needs to add another QB, most likely from the transfer portal. Go Bucks!
The timing of this sure sucks but time to move on. I am very comfortable with Justin Fields and trust that with game experience with the new starters our offense will be just fine. We'll get a solid QB from the transfer portal and have more depth than we do now.
Keep the faith! Go Bucks!
This crap has been going on for years. The NCAA chased former basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian for years trying to find him guilty of violating NCAA policy and especially when he was winning at UNLV in the early-90's. During that time same period, the University of Kentucky sent a basketball recruit a package containing $10,000 in cash. The package tore apart and Kentucky was immediately on the NCAA radar.
A reporter asked Tark what he thought what he thought the NCAA would do to Kentucky. To paraphrase Tark, he said that "the NCAA will probably be so upset with Kentucky that they'll give Cleveland State, then also being investigated for violating NCAA rules, the death penalty."
The NCAA seems to get it wrong far more often than they get it right.
Congratulations to Coach Hanson on a tremendous career at OSU. His patience and excellence in building a great program at the flagship university in Ohio has had an amazing rippling effect on volleyball programs across the Midwest.
You have been and will always be a Buckeye. Your replacement has large shoes to fill. Go Bucks!
Colin. Thanks for sharing the background story of Jaylen Clark with us. His Buckeye roots run deep, and as we found with Garrett Wilson during this past football recruiting cycle, home is where the heart is.
Jaylen is an impressive young man, and any young man growing up under a roof that suffers when the Buckeyes lose is like family to me. Go Bucks!
BOOM! Welcome home Coach Diebler. Go Bucks!
I am a fan of Brohm's and believe Purdue was wise in signing him to a long-term deal. Brohm has done a terrific job in a challenging environment and Purdue should be better going forward. Go Bucks!
BOOM! Lejond's re-commitment to OSU should be a spark in recruiting. Go Bucks!
Thanks again for the reply. It's not always easy to find the place where your coaching style fits your university and their needs. Coach Schiano was the perfect hire at Rutgers when he was hired and did so much good there both on and off the field, including his support of Eric LeGrand. Coach Schiano's really not had the same levels of 'success' since Rutgers though one could argue that his OSU defenses were good overall in spite of last fall being especially bad most of the year. Go Bucks!
BucksHave7...Thanks for the reply. To answer your question, 'No, I am not Coach Schiano's agent.' I don't know him other than what I have seen of his teams over time and what I read. I'm just older than many here and really hate people savaging others at all levels.
Having coached for many years, I just understand the pressure he and his family had to have been under the last year and a half. That will make anyone old quick!
The last 15 months or so have to have been extremely difficult for Coach Schiano and his family to endure. He lost the Tennessee job and was publicly attacked by that fan base. After the struggles with the Buckeye defense last year, many in our fan base were all over him too.
Coach Schiano may have accepted the Patriots job without being emotionally ready to do so. I wish him well and have always liked/respected him as a man. Go Bucks!
I feel especially bad for these two Buckeyes, as neither Justin Hilliard nor Kamryn Babb have had much luck fighting off injury in spite of their great efforts to get back on the field. Their grit and determination will be rewarded somewhere down the line if not on the field.
Wow! That's quite a trade if true! Go Browns!
TMac is a man's man. We were certainly blessed to have TMac leading our Buckeyes. The intangible qualities that TMac brought to Zone 6 and the team daily can never be measured though were always visible. Best wishes as he enters the NFL. Go Bucks!
The scary part about all that speed at WR is they are all gone. I'm not sure there is anyone in the wings who could run with those 3 WR's so that offensive advantage appears to be gone for the time being. A couple of the incoming WR's are special athletes but will they be ready to make an impact this fall? I'm anxious to see. Go Bucks!
CowCat. Thanks for the response. In my opinion, it's a punk move to get your ass handed to you and whine. I've never been a fan of McCaffery for this very reason. Go Bucks!
McCaffery should have been more concerned with how poorly his team ended the half and how poorly they competed down the stretch. Going after a referee, under any circumstances, to call a referee a cheater and a disgrace is way out of bounds. His suspension should have been much longer in my opinion.
I've never been a fan of McCaffery and am grateful we have Coach Holtmann. Go Bucks!
I agree and am glad Taylor has taken over. Like most, I can't ever seem to get enough information of OSU football. Go Bucks!
Having enough healthy, fresh, and experienced bodies to move on the "O" line is no longer a concern with Jonah Jackson's transfer. Go Bucks!
