i hate anyone saying Bama is 'better team' than OSU on 'eye test'.... oh really?  how does anyone know that w/o playing against each other?  this is so invalid - thing called 'eye test'... you give to the team most deserving... most deserving is the best 4 team...

Yeah.. 'Bama was also better eye-candy in 2014, weren't they?

And if I have to point out the ultimate example: Miami was DEFINITELY passing everyone's eye-test in 2002.  OSU was supposed to get rolled.  And what happened that year..?

Wow, you're an excellent candidate!  Having spent some time in that wasteland of a state, let me give you a few more pointers:

Be good at eating pork rinds and drinking lead contaminated drinking water.

Be friendly with your female cousins.  (You think I jest here..)

F-ing learn to dip a can of chaw a day; it's used as part of male-bonding behavior. 

For that matter.. it's also used as part of female-male, and female-female bonding behavior.

If you're at a gas station or rest stop in that state, DO NOT try to look through any holes in the bathroom wall. I repeat.. DO NOT, lest you want to see something fleshy and gangrenous coming straight for ya.

Yea.. the stadium was nearly empty.  And no one was there to see it..  OH WAIT.. there's an invention called TELEVISION.

So actually, many people saw it, and it's the reason we're having this discussion.

But don't mind my logic.  I mean.. you're doing so well trying to overlay your lack of pride or care as the way the rest of us (who actually do give a damn), should feel.

So, you don't see how planting that flag in the middle of the "O", with his teammates around him going nuts, might seem like a big middle-finger to Ohio State and all its fans?  Especially given that Mayfield did it because he specifically stated he didn't like our players singing to our fans, last year?

Tell me HolyBuckeye, what does 1+1 equal, in your world?  11?

The problems ARE deeper than QB, but you are out of your mind if you don't think a change in QB would help.  JTs touch on fade routes, deep routes.. hell.. ROUTES in general, is very very poor, right now.

I don't know what you saw, but I saw us leave many passing yards and at least one TD on the table, as a result of JTs inexplicably (at this stage) poor touch. Even to wide open receivers.

Hey, thanks for the post.  It wasn't a bad one.  I understand there was a lot of garbage talk on fan forums, but hey.. that kinda rhetoric is part&parcel.  You know that!  It goes both ways, to be sure.

However, I take exception to you equating singing Carmen Ohio to the OSU fans (last year), to a complete douchebag move by Mayfield.  Singing to the fans had nothing to do with OU, and is just something the OSU players do to pay respect to the traveling fans, and the school.

But wait.. Matta doesn't have coaching ability, and has relied on exceptional 5-star recruiting. Furthermore, he "can't develop bigs", so whatever is happening with Giddens is complete luck.

Sorry.. FIRE MATTA!

When I was reading the comments from the Thad haters, I imagined a bunch of redneck losers from some small hick town in Ohio (of which, let's admit, there are plenty).  I imagined that said hilljacks enjoyed beating their wives, dogs, and masturbating to John Wayne movies, to make them forget that they haven't done anything significant in their lives. Ever.

In conclusion, there are many things wrong with such people.

Comment 03 Jan 2016

Lol.. I was poking fun by being completely sarcastic.  (Thought that would be obvious by labeling myself as a "d-bag ungrateful fan")

I'm totally behind Matta, and am sick and tired of the whiner attitude from fans who likely have more in common with Ben&Jerry's, than with athletic endeavors, much less the coaching that goes into teams.

Comment 03 Jan 2016

Ya know, being the impatient, ungrateful d-bag fan that I am, I must state that I am STILL not impressed with player development, and especially that of the bigs.

So, I say emphatically: FIRE MATTA!

Guys and girls, I think this is just another symptom of sports taking too important of a role in our society.  I'm not being sanctimonious; I am one who attends games when possible, buys branded gear, and yells at my large HDTV during games.  I pay ridiculous money for a beer and food on gameday, without thinking about it.  I pay the $400+ for a roundtrip ticket to C-bus to see the game. Etc.. etc..

But even if I can afford it, I'm not paying $2000 for a helmet.  Tickets are already borderline unaffordable for most middle class families who want to take the family to a game.  I mean.. even for those still living in the O-H, I'd imagine that the cost of buying tickets, food, travel, beer, and various trinkets/clothing would eclipse $500 for a family of four.  Well.. unless said family is smuggling bags of chips and drinks into the game, buying cheap tickets from scalpers after the game starts, and generally avoiding the temptation of buying anything from a vendor.  But who wants to do that?  The idea is to take in the entire atmosphere pre&post game, and that's getting harder to do.

The point I am gravitating towards, is that the "full" gameday experience (for those who are not students) is slowly becoming one that only those who have thousands to drop (when including airfare and multiple tickets), are going to be able to enjoy.  Many of you above are correct; $2000 helmets will be snatched up without a problem, as will seats whose value in the future will be hundreds, if not $1000+.  Unfortunately, such will only be attainable by very "well-to-do", if this keeps up.

Galloway is a freak of nature.  That being said, I think people fixate on 40-times too much, for WRs and RBs.  Joey also ran impeccable routs, and in that respect, TGJr isn't even on the same planet.  (Or wasn't during his OSU career, versus that of Joey's)

Comment 04 Oct 2015

One of those CJ bashers is in MEDICAL SCHOOL. What.. the.. hell.  And if you go to her profile, you'll see a syntactical error. 

In my book, every one of those fools is a loser.  When individuals are that wrapped up in a sport, and probably don't come close to achieving as much in their own lives, I question their collective sanity.

I went to the Nebraska-Ohio State women's soccer game (in Lincoln, NE).  The women lost 2-0, and those two goals came in the first few minutes; the Lady Buckeyes came out very flat. 

They pressed much better in the second half, and won more 50/50 balls, but the problem was that Nebraska bunkered down a bit, which made getting a decent shot off, very difficult.

Two things:  1) I was honestly shocked that the Nebraska women's team was (overall) more athletic than our Buckeyes.  No joke, it was that noticeable, especially in midfield, where they seemed to have better ball control.  And Nebraska's women seemed to be a bit more physical. Nebraska's back four was terrific; our forwards generally only got shots off if they happened to find a seam between the center-backs (e.g. Nya did this well, a few times) or if one of our girls could beat 2-3 of theirs around the box, and get a shot off.  That didn't happen very often.

I bring all that up, because I was surprised at the difference in conditioning/athleticism, and ball control in midfield.  Ohio is hotbed of soccer, and while Nebraska has an excellent soccer community, there is no way we should be out-done like that. I have no idea if it's a strength/conditioning thing, or more to do with talent.

I am also enamored by the actions of DG, and I think the letter was heart-warming, and appropriate.

However, Dave Claborn needs to fire the individual who is responsible for editing his documents.  I know it may seem petty to some of you, but someone in his position should not have that tripe sent out in his name.
