Rabbit, spot on!

Some people on here sound like scUM fans. I am the first to admit that Dabo is a douche. However, just because a team has beat us the least few times we played and good players are returning doesn’t mean they are paying their players. 

With that being said, I hope they are paying them and get caught, lose all their scholarships, then they all get diagnosed with crabs.

Wait, Ubrz & Spices gets down voted because he links us to the forum post that came out a couple days ago? Huh. Well, Urbz, I got you covered with an upvote.

Here’s a list...from what I understand it’s the largest number of early enrollees we’ve ever had! These men want to lose those black stripes!

While I do feel Clemson is good and will be a great game, I do think the media effectively built them up over the last 5-6 weeks. They are great, but the second toughest team they played (Virginia) is very equivalent to Cincinnati. They did the same thing to Virginia what we did to Cincinnati. 

Furthermore, we just beat 3x top-15 teams with a patchwork secondary and a gimpy QB. Once they heal up, we will be humming! That being said, outscoring Wisc 27-0 in a half sounds like humming to me! The only other team to do that was us earlier this year.

Buckeye fans that think we will be outclassed are still suffering from 31-0-itis. That ain’t happening again! Urban Meyer initially hired Ryan Day to ensure that won’t and now he is at the helm. 

It’s a great decade to be a buckeye fan! Let’s enjoy it!

Call me a pessimist, but I feel the same way! I feel nervous about this one for several reasons. 

1) Field’s mobility/knee. Last time we played Bucky, it took a few JF runs to finally open this game up. We only had 10 points in the 3Q. We won’t have his mobility at our disposal this week with his knee. You can bet they will be keying on JK. Couple this with Bucky’s ability to pressure the QB (5 sacks last time we played them and #5 in the nation in sacks) makes me nervous.

2) Jack Coan indoors. JF said our offense could put 50+ on them with better weather, but Jack also had a terrible game in the bad weather. True, a lot of that was CY on the prowl, but if they contain CY like TTUN did, I think Coan has the ability to have a 200+ yard game if we keep 8-9 guys in the box like we did last time  

3) Rat Poison. Our team is getting a lot of that this week with B1G awards, everyone picking them to curbstomp Bucky, etc.

4) OSU is coming off two huge wins. Can we have a third?

I’ll be at the game, rooting my guts out for the good guys. Hopefully all this is just me being overly pessimistic. 

I will caveat all this with also saying I was extremely nervous for the 2014 B1G game against Bucky. Yep, the 59-0 one. I went to that one as well and that was literally the most amazing display of dominance I have ever witnessed in person.

I know...everyone thinks this game is in the bag. I am also a pessimistic fan (even though I felt we would beat PSU by 21+). However, I feel nervous about this one for several reasons.

He would receive $50,000 if his team has a cumulative GPA of 3.0, $100,000 if the team reaches 3.3 and $150,000 if the team averages a 3.5 GPA.

If Ohio State wins the Big Ten East, he will be given a $50,000 bonus. On top of that, he can receive an additional $100,000 if his team wins the conference. Should the Buckeyes make it to a College Football Playoff bowl game, he will be given a $200,000 bonus. He would receive a $350,000 if he leads the team to the finals. 

Should he find personal success, winning Big Ten Coach of the Year, Day would receive $50,000. He could also receive $75,000 if he is named National Coach of the Year.

I listen to this podcast after every TTUN loss because he is downtrodden and crushed. However, I really like him and he is an honest dude that points out reality. 

Comment 02 Dec 2019

Wouldn’t read too much into it. When I wake up in the morning and weather.com says 3% chance of rain, I never take my umbrella. 

Comment 01 Dec 2019

I thinks coming back 100% healthy will set him up for a breakout season versus an average season. 
 

On that note, I was so impressed he elected to play against TTUN versus waiting for the B1G CG or the playoff! He gets the rivalry! 

Comment 29 Nov 2019

I agree that every fan base may have these fans. Too bad.  This really bothers me. As a previous player (even if it was only as a benchwarmer at the Air Force Academy), that dealt with a concussion and a minor achilles tear that sidelined me for 3 months, I cant fathom this.
 

Maybe those disconnected from actual players and how mentally and physically frustrating injuries really are don’t grasp how hard this is for these men.

Maine,

Valid points. For some reason, I can’t see who has upvoted or downvoted the article or posts. 

With that being said, my judgement is always a little clouded when discussing TSUN.
