Love Urban---love Day. Only negative I can find with Urban is that we could have had Haskins playing quarterback for 3 years here instead of just of 1 year, I know Urban and J T. And J T and Urban. Just did not give Haskins a decent chance early in his career.
Congratulations to Chris and his staff! The guy is building a good program. And soon, we will be back to being a football/basketball school just like it should be, GO CHRIS and GO BUCKS!
For you guys heading to Lincoln for the first time, you are in for a treat. If you stroll downtown any, just count the times that they will say "Welcome to Lincoln". Two years ago, I was walking to the stadium and was invited to a tailgate by an all Nebraska group. And these are rabid fans. But, they treat the opposing fans with respect as well. Just a different environment than most places in the Big Ten. So, enjoy your trip and GO BUCKS!
Why don't we as fans just sit back and watch this kid play. He has been spectacular the first three games. Just have faith in the coaches to "fix" what might have to be done. Ryan Day coached quarterbacks in the NFL. I think he knows what has to be done. GO BUCKS!
- If you become a season ticket holder, purchase the chair seat with your order. It is around $60 for the season. It is securely bolted down on your seat number. And cushioned enough that the butt on your right and the butt on your left can not sit on your seat.
Just gets worse and worse for that Diva!
We have not had very many last minute drives. The last two years when we lost to Iowa and Purdue, there was no such thing as a last minute drive. Oklahoma was close. But, they still were pretty much in control most of the way. But, Haskins came in the 4th quarter at Michigan and was great. Haskins was also great against Maryland last year when we needed 52 to win by 1. But, we can not overlook the job Braxton did at Ann arbor as well. Score tied--late 4th quarter. He and Carlos Hyde just torched Michigan to score the winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter. GO BUCKS!
Before anyone picks the Bucks by a huge margin, let's remember our last couple of games in Bloomington Two years ago, we were trailing at the half. Then Dobbins, a true freshman, took over in the second half. And 4 years ago, Apple knocked down a pass in the end zone with very little time left. If I U completes the pass, they win. 6 years ago we won a shoot out by a score of something like 52--49. So, I U has not been a place recently that has been easy. Yes, we should win Saturday. But, we should also regard them as an opponent that plays us real tough in their place. GO BUCKS!
One thing Ryan Day has said over and over in his press conferences that he wants to play as many players as he can. Well 28-0 in about 7 minutes was getting it done. So, there were many chances for him to play lots of subs. If a player is buried deep in the depth chart and gets to play quality minutes in the opener, you have one happy player. And that player will probably continue to bust his tail in practice which also helps the starters as well. I have no doubt we could have put 79 on that team like Penn State and Maryland did. But this is Ryan Day. He wants to play as many as he can every game. To me that is great coaching of his entire team. So what if we did not impress the media. Ryan took a big step in keeping his promise to play the players that work their talils off for him. Yes a new Day is here. And he is pretty damn impressive! GO BUCKS!
Gotta think that is the worst game going on in the BIG that day. BTN already listed it as being on their network. So, it almost certain it will be a noon game. For those of you wondering why in the world did we schedule Miami. That day was suppose to be a home game with TCU. Last year we were suppose to play TCU on their home field. The powers to be flashed some heavy dough to both schools to play in Jerry World. So, OSU and TCU cancelled the home and home and decided to play one game on a neutral field. And, by the way, that "neutral" field was 11 miles from the TCU campus! Some neutral field, huh? GO BUCKS!
Just to add some to the Bryce Harper story as seen on local television here in Cincinnati. Before Bryce hit the home run, he was on the on-deck circle. He asked that kid who is favorite college football team was. The kid replied "U C". Then Harper hit the home run and could not resist doing the O H I O for the kid who said that. That was awesome that Bryce did that. Then on the news they added that his wife was an ex--OSU soccer player and that Bryce was a fanatic Buckeye supporter.. Great positive news about Bryce for a change. O-H-I-O for Bryce and GO BUCKS!
Being an OSU grad , but living in Cincinnati, I really don't think they hate us. I really think UC and their fans are wannabes. They want to be like OSU in football. They wanna be like Kentucky in basketball. And, how has that worked out for them? GO BUCKS!
UC has a decent defense--not very quick though. Their QB does not have a real strong arm-but he is accurate. Lots of bubble screens. Warren is good back. But he went out of the game with what looked like a minor ankle injury. Then he came back in and injured the same ankle again. Something to keep a close eye on. Their depth is not great anywhere. If we solve their defense and be patient, there is no way in hell they beat us. Wish Luke lots of luck this season---AFTER Saturday---GO BUCKS!
Live in Cincy--but an OSU alum and season ticket holder,. First U C fans---I definitely believe they are not haters of OSU. Instead, I think they are wannabes. They want to be like OSU in football and want to be like Kentucky in basketball. And that has not happened. A few observations about the game last night. UCLA was missing 3 defensive backfield players and another big lineman. UCLA was horrible on offense. Or UC was that good--your choice. UC's quarterback does not have a real strong arm. But, he is accurate as hell. Warren is a good back. But, keep an eye on that injury he suffered. He went back in and aggravated it again. I like Coach Fick--but next week for me he is just another enemy coach that day. OSU wins next Saturday. But, they better not have their heads up their ass either. GO BUCKS!
Forde is definitely worthless. But, wait, as the season unfolds, he becomes worse.
First quarter--Dobbins has a couple of short runs. Then he explodes and runs for 45 plus and a touchdown. By the way, that will be the first of three touchdowns for him Saturday.
I agree it was strange seeing Urban with Gator gear on. But, he did win a National Championship for Florida. And the Gators have been bad since then. I also think that was probably a sign to the Florida fans that he still has feelings for them and hopes that the fans realize that the Gators are still part of his life. And why shouldn't they be. He won for them!
This happened long before Urban retired and during the time he was suffering headaches and right after he had the cyst operated on. I was in my dentist office getting a checkup by my dentist who is an OSU grad as well. I asked him to clue me in on what Urban was going through if he could. After a long talk by him. I took away this and it really made me think. He said that the surgery on the cyst appears to have helped him as long as he cut out stress. But, this floored me when he said that no second or third surgery would ever done on him. He said that could be extremely dangerous for Urban and could even cause death. So, any of us would have made the same decision as he did. Just get as far away from stress as you can. So, I firmly believe that he will never coach again. But, he will be an instant success on television. And the best part, if he relaxes and just enjoy his life, he should be just fine. GO BUCKS! GO URBAN! GO DAY!
Urban did mention that Michigan has a great group of receivers.and a very good offensive line. He said their defense is not as good--but Don Brown will straighten them out. He also had praise for their new offensive coach who will be calling plays. As they say--"Silence is Golden" and in Urban's analysis he never mentioned Crazy Jimmy one single time. I think that speaks volumes about his feelings about the Michigan head coach and what UFM thinks about him. GO BUCKS!
There is not even a close second--it is the Billy Ripken card. FYI--There were 3 versions of that card released. The one with the "F---", the one with a black box printed over the expression and one "normal" showing the knob of the bat with nothing on it. Believe it or not, the last two "clean" versions are more valuable than the "F" version. And the reason is there are far less of them than the "F" card which means they are more scarce.
You have got to be kidding--an on the field D J? Since we are not allowed to use certain language on here, let me just politely say--not a great idea! GO BUCKS!
You are right! Also the president of THE Ohio State University did nothing to help him last summer when the crap hit the fan. Being an OSU alum, I believe that this president should get his walking papers!
I really think Urban will do a fantastic job on television. His coaching days at OSU just seemed to fly by. Urban Legend will be missed as a coach. Every time I listen to Ryan Day speak, I am impressed by him. And he and his staff have shown they really know how to recruit. So, since we lost a legend, this is hoping that the new staff will be as successful.. Can't wait to get this season going. But, not having Urban as our coach will take some time to get used too as well GO BUCKS!
Too early to tell--yes--but haven't they been pretty consistent for man years?
