It would be hard for anyone to argue if the staff decides to roll with the crew that balled out vs. MSU. But if they go back to the previous lineup against scUM and they play poorly...they will get some much deserved scrutiny.
Baker did not block that punt...it was Ward.
Baker has looked lost, disinterested, lazy, etc. most of the season. I'm sure the coaches have a feel for what his problems are...and hopefully they can get them fixed.
We have a Scottish Terrier....named him Griffin. It works on two levels, the OSU angle to honor Archie and the fact that it is sort of a Scottish name.
Yeah, but I think I read ya....that some reason is that his name is Elliott, not Jackson.
Zeke is a true sophomore...he will be back next season. And he will dominate!
Yeah, Chicago is great....especially if you love getting murdered.
When looking at that 26,000 number you need to keep in mind that students get in free, as do kids 6 and under. I would expect at least 10K students to show up, and probably another 5K of kids that get in free (I will be bringing my 2). I'm predicting 60,000 plus will be there on Saturday.
Students ARE free....as are kids 6 and under.
Students get in free....as do kids 6 and under. Parking in also free. So my family of 4 is going for $24...not a bad deal at all for a sneak peek at next year's version of the Buckeyes.
He isn't comparing it to PSU... He is referencing the fact that Gibbons gagged several field goals in the PSU game, which led to scUM losing. Had he not been playing, perhaps they would have won.
You clicked on this item and were apparently interested enough to read it and comment on it...
As a proud graduate of The Ohio State University myself, I welcome discussion on all things Ohio State.
You not being able to explain why OSU kept him is a YOU problem. You, like many others, base your opinions solely on these superfluous issues. Gee's accomplishment as President at OSU have been tremendous on virtually every front. He has greatly improved OSU's academic standing, raised a ton of money, improved facilities, led the long overdue shift to semesters, forged many beneficial partnerships, and so much more. So he is a top performer in all areas that are important for a university president...that is why OSU kept him.
The fact that he isn't an "expert" on sports and he makes frequent, sometimes off color, remarks while trying to get a laugh doesn't outweigh his accomplishments. People who give too much weight to athletics, and who are far too concerned about outsiders taking shots at OSU are the only ones that fail to see Gee for the blessing he is/was to OSU.
As an OSU grad, and someone who has met the man a few times, I have no problem saying that Gordon Gee was the best thing to happen to Ohio State in the last 100 years. Where the university is now, versus where it was before Gordon Gee entered the picture is nothing short of amazing.
Yeah, when you see vehicles parked in the grass about 20 yards from the end zone, it sort of takes a little of the shine off...not exactly big boy football.
On another not, those vehicles would have had multiple football sized dents if Joe Bauserman were playing QB in that game.
Welcome aboard, young man! Can't wait to see you on the field for the Buckeyes. Here is hoping that he becomes the next great OSU defensive back, following the likes of Springs, Winfield, Doss, Gamble, Roby, etc.
So, you are saying that Hoke lost his appetite over this?
I echo the comments above...I came here for a temporary escape from the depression of last night's results. I purposefully avoided news sites, and the first thing I see here is a reminder of the sequel to the disaster movie that is Barack Obama's presidency.
Wow, it appears that you've downed a whole case of the kool-aid!
I don't think the offense is going to be a well-oiled machine right out of the shoot, especially given the absence of Jordan Hall. And there are a lot of question marks on the defensive side, especially at linebacker.
I think both units will be strong mid-year, but I don't share your apparent belief that we are looking at the 2002 defense combined with the 2006 offense.
I think we'll see some good, some bad, and some ugly on Saturday with a lot of players seeing action. I'm thinking something in the range of 37-13.
OSU needs to fire Gene Smith...YESTERDAY!
And someone needs to delete his Youtube account. At least he didn't post a Youtube video to address the violation he committed and posted on Youtube.
SEC Underpants Gnomes are known to be the fastest in the business.
It's filled with replacement national championship trophies. The van is dispatched to Wal-Marts to replace broken trophies that are dropped by unwashed SEC fans.
So you are assuming that it's a 12 passenger van filled to capacity with SEC fans and/or "student" athletes....
Hopefully Sully and the boys come out with a purpose tonight and get this thing headed in the right direction. Need to get the attitude adjusted after a lackluster performance against Purdue and a pathetic showing (except for Craft) against Sparty.
Pick up a solid win tonight and prepare to hand scUM their first home loss this weekend!
I believe new rankings come out on Mondays, so we will not move up prior to the Michigan game. Hopefully we put a healthy beatdown on the skunk bears and that propels the Bucks to #2 in the next poll.
Good call...the "Showdown in the Shoe" is scheduled for April 21st at 11:00 vs. Air Force. That all but confirms that the Spring Game will be on April 21st.
I can't wait...may make that my 4 year-old's first trip to Ohio Stadium.
Actually, in most years it has been the second to last Saturday in April. Which would be consistent with it being held on the 21st this year.
