  • SPORTS MOMENT: The Holy Buckeye play at Purdont. I took my parents to that game and, like the entire season, we were on the verge of heart failure hoping that the Bucks would make that 3 yards for the first down. When Krenzel play actioned and scrambled around to pass I thought I nearly lost consciousness -- really! I had to struggle to stay on my feet during the eternal 2.5 seconds that ball was in the air. To this day, I credit Michael Jenkins with saving my life.

Just need the team to adjust to how refs are calling / not calling. Use moving screens and don't worry about traveling or grabbing a shooters arm

I hope the team relaxes and has fun in the regular season finale at Sparty. Honestly, win or lose in that game, the finish to the regular season is basically the same; they're in the high-middle of the conference pecking order (a 5 to 7 B1G torney seed) with little difference within that placement.  So have fun with it.  Drive the lanes, look for assists or finish at the hoop, defend the guards relentlessly and they could pull off a shocker.

Go Bucks!  Beat Sparty

While I was never one to call for Holtmann to be fired, I go along with any reasonable fan who are disappointed in his penchant for midseason flops. Further, the fans who blindly accept the January flop remind me of those who constantly supported Cooper's end of season face-plants. The fact is that the Buckeyes have the best resources in NCAA athletics and should expect consistent excellence in both football and basketball. Considering the demonstrated ability of the team during the first third of the season, the failures of the second third of the season should be unacceptable.

Steele Chambers will be the new starter. Crowley will still be limited during the Fall.  To be honest, I am not nervous at all about Chambers getting this opportunity.  I am guessing that the H-back and QB will combine to be the "RB by committee" folks expect.

If there is a loss on the schedule it's definitely on the road in Happy Valley.

I differ on that oppinion.  If the Buckeyes are good enough to go into Autzen Stadium and come out with the W, then they should handle PSU.  I think folks are overlooking just how difficult it is to: 1. win on the west coast; 2. win at Autzen Stadium; 3. win a week-2 road game against any marquis opponent when you're replacing most of the defensive backs.

I really believe we have the talent on the roster and the coaches to take this team to an undefeated season; but we've seen that scenario so many times too.

Go Bucks!

I think this will be awful for college football. Highly recruited kids who don't make the grade to start at the school that recruited them will just leave for a school where they think they have a better chance. Team rosters will be wrecked.  If players want to go somewhere else, do it; but don't expect a scholly. They can walk-on or grayshirt if they feel somewhere else is a better fit. As an academic scholarship awardee, I sure couldn't just move to another university and get a full ride there too. Let these kids learn real life lessons about commitment, perseverance, and consequences.
