Mattison was on the way out of michigan anyway, dude is old and wasn't being offered a new contract. We could use an old but good and experienced coordinator/recruiter though during this transition. No one is saying Mattison is the DC for the future. Hes an Urban guy who will help Day grow as a HC, groom Hafley for the DC job, who has experience working with Washington, and who isn't going to go up against LJ. 

Mattison is a safe pick, all things considered.

Thats awesome that Dwayne knows the game so well at this point, but my biggest takeaway is how much Day helped and emphasized these skills with him.

Georgia Tech 
Miami 
Auburn
Michigan 
Oregon
Utah 
Iowa 
Penn State 
Ohio State

Is my guess on who will win. not necessarily who I want to win

Our conference schedule next year is going to be tough, period. Indiana always plays us well, Nebraska with Frost year 2 edition will be better (and they had an under-rated season anyway), and @Northwestern will be big in magnitude. 

Beyond just who we play, the schedule is also difficult. @nebraska, Sparty, @Northwestern, Wisconsin all in a row. Then we get Maryland, @Rutgers, Penn St, @tun to following our bye. The only game that is easy is Rutgers.

Sucks but I can't fault him. its hard to sacrifice your health and future when you aren't getting paid for it. another injury and he immediately gets labeled as "injury prone" and it hurts his draft stock. meanwhile it would be poor form to force him out there when his head isn't 100% in it, even if he is physically healed. Hard decision that I doubt he took lightly.

Lets also not ignore that millenials are now getting deeper into the "buying a house and starting a family" thing, all while generally making less money than other generations did at these ages (adjusting for inflation and such) AND having a lot of student loan debt. Even with millennials being less into football, those that are into football just can't afford it like others.

That is clearly the most questionable game, but would have us regain our homeland the quickest. 

The more likely outcome is that columbus ends up being controlled by UCF by the end of the season. We wouldn't regain it unless we play UCF in a bowl.

Worth mentioning that the one that began last year (its also at the bottom of the link) could have us reclaiming Columbus after we beat penn state in a few weeks. 

What has to happen?

Illinois defeats USF

Penn State defeats Illinois

OSU defeats Penn State

We also would control the vaaaast majority of the country as last year we claimed a lot of territory even after losing to iowa.

I think torreira-xhaka pairing is what xhaka needed and that torreira will effectively be a more defensive santi. Xhaka's defensive value is disrupting passing lanes further up the pitch rather than being the furthest midfielder back. In attack he is still a very good passer and is the go-to outlet pass to reset the attack. Or at least this is how i see it. 

I'm so excited because of all of that attacking power, but also am worried about the back line. I'm hoping that a better defensive midfield pairing will help the back 4 a lot.

Arsenal have a quality team and I think the changes will work out quite well. There is a new energy around the club. I would not be surprised if they challenge for the top 2 this year. I definitely think they will be better than United and Chelsea.

I have way more passion for The Game than i do for any other game involving OSU athletics, or probably any athletics competition in the world. Championships are cool and fun of course, but I don't wait every season for the playoff. I wait every season for the chance to see the buckeyes give it to TTUN once again. It does not matter what came before or after, that game is the big one and the one we prepare for more than any other game. No season is a failure if we beat TTUN, i will always say that

Comment 07 Aug 2018

My first reaction to the rally was that it was an embarrassing exercise of unconditional support for a coach currently placed on administrative leave and subject to an investigation. Just sounds bad to me, because if shit comes to light then everyone there looks like a grade A fool for doing it.

But after reflecting a little bit, i'm alright with it. People over-reacted hardcore on the first day that Urban should be fired (or is being fired) and every other tiny rumor that floats around during these processes. At this point nobody cares about zach and courtney anymore, people only want to talk about urban. So if Urban is on trial in the public relations world, it makes sense for some people to come to his defense. Because OSU can't do it during the investigation, Zach Smith saying urban shouldn't be fired doesn't convince anybody. 

At least now more media personalities are saying Urban will probably stay. Not saying its related to this rally at all. But the tide is shifting back a little bit.
