Grew up near the S&G course over on McCoy Rd. My grandfather was head of Neurology and a surgeon at Riverside Hospital. He knew Woody and would assist the team med wise. Ended up out West in my teens and fell in love with the mountains. Graduated from Park City HS and the University of Utah. I work in technology supporting Gov't accounts. Happily married to a Duck fan and living in Denver with our two sons (who are not Duck fans). GO BUCKS!

He's not....the guy is full of shit. Clemson (#48)   tOSU( #127) which is 2nd from last.  Returning production is a much better indicator than age.

Maybe Coach Meyer and Coach Schiano with their 'negative recruiting tactics' are just trying to help unify the ACC coaches since they seem hellbent on throwing Dabo under the bus for stealing signals.

That said, our offense playing calling was so bland and predictable the last two years that regardless if the accusation is true or not the outcome of the game would have been the same.

Sorry for your loss Ramzy.

Reading this reminded me of your friend Kris Hughes and the article you wrote about him. I thought to myself, Ramzy has some incredible friendships in his life, and then I reflected on my life, and realized the similarities to the friends that have impacted me. Then, of course, I felt the guilt for not embracing the importance of those relationships. That needs to change because time is a bitch and life can unexpectedly be cut short.

I would have liked to fly fish with Kris in Sun Valley or gone to a Cubs game with Dennis. They sounded like the type of people that revel in life just like a couple of my friends. Time to pick up the phone.

Hard to fathom what Meech was thinking on that play.  I'm sure he knew what the play call was since everyone else with a pulse in the world knew that play was coming.  JT under center with Samuel in motion, here comes the jet sweep.  I think ol Big Meech forgot the snap count. Either that or JT screwed up on the delayed fumblerooski.

2007 was worse...I just hope we get another shot next year like we did in 2008.

Regarding the predictive play-calling, I knew we were doomed when JT went under center and I stated "here comes the jet sweep" and of course that is what they ran for another TFL. I was at a party with other Buckeye fans and everyone just stared at me after I called the play, my reply "we are fucked!" 

I just don't understand why we did not break tendencies against a very good opponent with 3 weeks to prepare. I'm sure it was a similar game plan that we used against Hawaii last year.  I'm not saying you scrap what got you to the CFP but you have to keep a defense honest.  I know everyone loves the QB option that typically never worked as safeties would crash down after reading their keys.  Not once last year did OSU run play-action (seam pattern would be nice) off of that QB option look. Not once...unfucking believable considering how teams would crash that play.

Yep...cannot believe they did not review that play. Doesn't the replay official have to review any turnover?
