Harbaugh is great at planning Spring break vacations for the football team. Too bad the upcoming trip was canceled due to the Corona virus; maybe now they’ll actually turn their attention to football. 

Comment 18 Feb 2020

This is heartbreaking. Sending Prayers and good thoughts for this little one. 

Comment 09 Feb 2020

He can’t be too pissed. He WAS made Head Coach at Ohio State for a year.  He wasn’t ready. He wasn’t ready after one year at Cincy. Would he be ready to be named OSU coach now? Maybe, but OSU has a coach at this time. Would he be considered, say next year, if Day were to take over an NFL team? Very likely. Timing matters.

I thought Tathan quit the team to focus on being an instagram model. Or was it the assistant TO the Instagram model? In any case it’s sad. I wish he had stayed and graduated and looked to transfer this year. He would’ve played much more here, gained CFP experience, improved his passing skills, got a degree, and could’ve transferred out with better experience and better prospects. Hindsight is 20/20 though. I still wish him well and I’d love to see him turn it around. America loves a comeback story like Rocky!

Waiting for spring ball is a good point. Players could see where they stand relative to off season development, injuries, better/worse positional log jams. More importantly for some, they could be closer to graduating and getting immediate PT. 
 

Maybe there’s a pattern. December—players who have a chance to join a top team enter portal to get one of last schollies. Jan/Feb—younger guys who see the new class coming in, are not close to graduating, so get an early start elsewhere. April/May—guys where lost close position battles like Burrow, and older players about to graduate.

Why can’t this stuff get in the news cycle during the season, like 2 weeks before PSU’s game against OSU? Oh, wait, that only happens when it benefits Franklin. 

Comment 18 Dec 2019

He said earlier in year coaches taught him to throw it away, even if it went against his instincts. Maybe he has a pretty good coach. 

Comment 17 Dec 2019

Was Coombs the one who taught DBs to just look at the WR and break up the catch when it arrived? Did he prefer man coverage. Those are 2 things that can work part of the time, but there was too much of that happening at some point and the defense suffered. Will Coombs’ style match with Mattison?

Comment 13 Dec 2019

The comments in this thread bring back memories of the Z&C Smith situation. “Innocent until proven guilty” is the bedrock of our judicial system. At the same time, rape victims under-report and need to be protected. Our society needs a solution. OSU was thrust into this quandary and failed. Drake failed. As a teaching institution that aims to produce future leaders and solve the world’s future problems, Drake whiffed in a chance to create a task force to study and solve this problem. At the very least, he could have taken the money he clawed back from Urban and donated to someone else so they could fix this problem. 

Comment 12 Dec 2019

Felt like Ash wasn’t at OSU long enough to solidify his reputation and jumped too quickly at the 1st HC offer. It paid millions but wasn’t a great job. Now it feels like Hafley doing the same thing. 
 

Interesting comments from Lane Kiffin when asked to reflect on his HC jobs. He said he’s been more successful at FAU than other place because he learned from Saban. He once thought Xs and Os were most important but learned that’s most important for coordinators, not HCs. 
 

I see why big programs look for previous HC experience or—and this is a big OR—training under one of the most successful HCs like Saban or Meyer. 

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Sure, unless Hafley only stays one more year, delaying the inevitable, and being distracted next season. Would it be better to lock up Ash now? He needs several years to rebuild his reputation to get another HC job, so at least he could be a stable staff member for longer. What’s clear is that the Buckeyes should have good options!

Comment 01 Dec 2019

But would he still win B1G COTY at tsun?  Haha, who am I kidding...of course he would!

1. Yeah, Shea was the only person in the Universe who didn’t know Ole Miss was getting sanctions. 

2. Refs paid off by whom? I didnt see any egregious bad calls or missed calls today. 

3. Ok, we all can agree Desmond Howard should be in MENSA.

4. I’d reply: OSU V tsun is hardly a rivalry now. Purdue has beaten OSU more times than tsun has this century, so OSU can call Purdue a rival and free tsun up for their many other rivals, which I can only assume means Sparty and...App State.
