Deep down inside... I've always wanted this match up... With a capable team. This team is more than capable. It's personal for Ryan Day and this team for the slights Dabo made, on the recruiting trail, about Urban. There are still many a player, on this team, that played in the GropeGate game. CAN'T WAIT!!!
We drew Bama... In New Orleans!!! And then Oregon after they whooped up on FSU. NATTY!!!!! Bring it on. In fact I wish they would've given us the 3 seed (same matchup anyhow). B10 Championship game served it's purpose... Dey woke
Be honest... THIS IS THE GAME WE WANTED... And I wouldn't mind seeing Oklahoma advance so we can plant the flag in their schooner. "2 for 1". SIDE NOTE - Did you see Ryan Day's face while Dabo was speaking? HE READY!!!
Hoping it equates to a 2 game suspension only. I believe Troy's (cash in bag) was the bowl game (vs OkSt) and the opener next year (before Texas). And that wasn't even self reported... Someone else reported it... But OSU wasn't held accountable as far as knowing. Plus we now have the recent future changes (pay 2 play) leaning our way... They're not currently in play... But the NCAA has to see this as an opportunity to save face from the backlash they took from holding off for so long. Plus w/Tim Nevius having a previous connection working on their side... And w/Gene having just represented the side of the NCAA on the upcoming changes.
I DO BELIEVE... WE GOOD
"Put your foot on the gas pedal... Push down as hard as you can... Do not let up until we sing... Carmen Ohio" - Loooooved it
Bijan... "Hey Boo"... But in all seriousness... In addition to Teague... Crowley looks like the real deal. Excited to see who flips this way.
WHOEVER... WHENEVER... WHEREVER
I always knew Arnette had THIS in him
Ixnay on those stories
He feels like Lattimore... He'll show up and give us 1 helluva year.

TBDBITL - STORY
2014 @ MSU (49-37)
MSU's kicker left his preferred ball out on the field. Colder wet weather and the band is in their their long pea coats. S-Row is known for collecting souvenirs. One of the alternates (not marching on the field | assisting with holding up the designs, flags and etc in the halftime show) has the task to get it. They manage to wrap it up in the tarp design. Slip it out and keep inside the peacoat for the entirety of the rest of the game. The kicker, of course, comes out earlier from halftime to warm up and is noticeably looking around for several minutes for that ball. That ball is in Columbus LOL
Upvote if you always go to the bottom for the score first... Then read the article/comments and etc.
I'm going 49-13... So far our defense shows the potential of holding teams to field goal attempts... I hope this remains consistent throughout the season.This is where games were too close over the last 2 years. Bend don't break. Excited to see what the D-Line does with almost being back at full strength. And... The perfect road opener for Fields to break in on before dealing w/Nebraska away and so on.
We've got ourselves a TEAM...
We've got ourselves a QB... "With a whip"
Good God.... My heart rate right now
If I had my guess I'd say opposing recruiters are pointing to a pass heavy offense, less success in the running game last year, Weber being drafted so late and etc. Hardly true... But still it's a key year to have Dobbins blow up. I have no doubt he will w/the added run threat of Fields. Hated to miss on Bijan... But... WE GOOD
Exactly... I'm grateful for his comment. I believe Day is bought in on the rivalry... But like freshmen... It's never real until that first hit. Now it's personal and he has to be motivated by it.
THE HAT & SUIT.... Why? It's not even strategic marketing towards the young men you're recruiting. I was going to comment on this very thing... But you've said it so well. I know a parent of one of his former players... Who always said... "They need to drug test the coaches as well. Because I'm pretty sure he's on something." (and not even a disgruntled parent... the son was a starter and played significantly). If we could only hear it straight from Al and Mattison about some of their experiences working with him... Priceless.
Carton and Liddell ... Grown man body | I always thought Diallo didn't look to be quite 7'0 (but that wing span is real)
As I write this... Mookie Cooper commits. Right before that... I was thinking of how we pull for all our players to do well. But then we see the phenoms coming in and hope most of them can go from jump. I always hope these kinds of players pan out and get the playing time... But on the other end of it 1 to 2 yrs at a program like this is better than a juco program (just an example) or playing at some other less than school... Because the competition, tutelage (Hartline) and strength & conditioning (Mariotti) will prepare you to succeed elsewhere. That portal will be popping w/WR's over the next year.
This squad is loaded... Elite 8 based on the way they'll improve/gel over the year. The competition in practice alone will push everyone. Washington and Muhammad will no doubt become more consistent. Gaffney, Carton and Liddell are ready to contribute from jump. Get the Brinks truck for Holtmann.
That one... And how.... How is Sheffield's rating higher than Dremont Jones? Still... May all these former Buckeyes have outstanding careers, pro bowls and all around success.
This year is key to maintain our advantage at getting top RB's. We have the advantage over a Texas program in terms of production at RB's going to the next level and having success. Plus 2 1000 yard rushers last year. But it wasn't the kind of year w/the most highlights from our RB's. Still... We should land Robinson. What concerns me is maintaining it thru the letter of intent. If the line and Dobbins have early success this year... No question. And 2 things should happen... 1. Fields running will no doubt open up the run game. Teams have to commit a spy or he'll house it. 2. And after watching Crowley in the spring game and his highlight tapes... He's underrated... Greatly. The future is bright.
Nah.... He's twitchy in short space (hard to juke), long arms on tape, sheds tackles, has a motor, has a nice long stride when he's rolling... And it looks like they line him up at End a lot of times (which is where he could end up w/us). Lastly... His tackling technique... A1
Great watch addressing this... Some perspective on our expectations while having just experienced Haskins
