I'd rather watch a loop of Desmond Howard doing the Heisman pose against OSU than this video. The more you watch it the more infuriating it is. That call literally took points off the board.... I could accept a close loss due only to OSU's own mistakes but this is hard to reconcile.
My heart literally missed a beat when I saw “Breaking...Chase Young...” at these top of the page. So relieved it was good news.....
Even knowing it took multiple takes to capture each of those shots, it is still INCREDIBLE. Especially the last one where he has to make back to back strikes.
Love Seth's guitar but I wonder if OSU got their cut($) or if he'll be receiving a cease-and-desist letter from the trademark and licensing department.
At Ohio State it is and always will be "Next man up". Tagovailoa goes out for Bama in the SEC championship game and the next guy comes in and wins the game. Same at OSU with Miller->Barrett->Jones. No excuses. Attributing any loss or season outcome on a single player is a disservice to the others on the team. As Buckeyes, it's our expectation to replace a "Joey" with a "Nick" and that is usually the case. The program is at a point where it's "problems" are keeping up with the yearly loss of underclassmen to the NFL, narrowly missing the CFP and going to the Rose Bowl instead, not winning games by enough points and potentially ruining its "rivalry" game because it's no longer a rivalry due to OSU domination.
Enjoy the "problems" we have as OSU fans and know that 13 othe B1G teams would kill to have the same.
Haskins faces the best D line in the country everyday in practice. I think he'll be ok.
I've got $2 and this Casio...
If the # of comments on a blog post were votes in a poll, this post about a "week 3" AP poll would rank #1 for all the posts I see on the first page of 11W. The Bucks won! and If they win out, the poll that means the most at the end of the year will take care of itself.
Fortunately for me, to be accepted in 1988 you only had to live in Ohio and submit an application. The again, I had 6 years (Tommy Boy) of John Cooper and zero wins against UM to endure during my student tenure.
With the expectations of this years offense, I think the kicking game only needs to concentrate on extra points and kickoffs.
I am absolutely hoping for an undefeated season. I didn't pay $150 for a ticket to watch OSU lose to Oklahoma at home.
This will be the first time Urban has an undefeated national championship team! Just like his last national championship was his first with a pre-season 3rd string quarterback who didn't earn the starting job until the post season. 2014 proved that anything is possible with an Urban Meyer led team.
Looks like the OH - IO greeting/response would make for an interesting poll question. I really wouldn't have thought it would be that evenly split (at least from what I see in the comments). I know it was cool this summer while I was on a cruise (not the cruise OSU took away from Spielman) and to hear "OH!" from complete strangers as I walk down the beach in Bermuda and other islands sporting my Buckeye gear. Kinda cool to see Buckeye fans around the world. Now doing this while walking down High St would be pretty lame, I agree, so limiting this to anywhere outside of the Buckeye state should be acceptable.
My confession - many years ago, during my first greeting with "OH", I immediately replied "OH!". I can't be the only one??
Could be said using 24 additional O's in a word is ignorant as well. Or maybe referencing an article on an Alabama website that is 3 years old using 4 year old data from an NCAA report (we all know the NCAA is credible) to support an argument may be ignorant.
Some would say, "I'd give my left nut to have NCAA18". Maybe they are ignorant of the consequences of a lost testicle or maybe they are just trying to express how much they like something without the need of unnecessary extra vowels in their words.
I think we are all just ready for some Buckeye football, virtual or otherwise.
Do the ESPY's rust and fall apart like the Rio gold medals?
I miss the days of the old school shoulder pads where you had to turn sideways to walk through a door.
I think this will prove to be a great hire. Some guys are just made to be coordinators and not head coaches. He will be tasked with finding ways of generating offense and will not need to worry about all of the other stuff that goes along with the HC position. His resume shows the results and now give him an offense full of 4&5 star players and I think he will flourish. At least until someone wants him to be their HC again.
If they could sway Wilson to OSU that would be huge. Alabama and Clemson have shown what an elite D-Line can do for a team and OSU is right on the cusp of that level. This class would be off the charts if they somehow add Wilson.
Looks like the Bucks got the best deal with being able to play the (computer ranked) 4 seed in the first playoff game.
I doubt you survive over 20 years in the NFL without knowing something. I won't hold the record as DC against him as there aren't that many people who can obtain that level off coaching status to begin with. Same for Urban in regards to his tenure as a coach, he's learned what makes a successful coach and assistant at the collegiate level so I'll trust his judgement. Also, Bill knows exactly what is expected of him with Urban,
As stated above, recruiting will be the key and since he's been on the staff in another roll the past year he shouldn't be totally new to dealing with teens and young men. Good luck coach Davis.
Not sure I'm for taking away reps from anyone who is on the team and eligible. Every rep is a learning experience and something that will help those scout team guys when its their turn to step in. I like bringing guys back to teach, coach, critique etc but leave them on the sidelines.
More stories about OSU players who are tough, leaders and grinders. We'll see how they stack up against "The Best Player in College Football"
OSU O-Line get's to line up against a top shelf D-Line everyday. Also, I'm sure some of those first year starters had some practice reps against Boas and crew last year. The talent across the line will not be anything an OSU player hasn't seen before. Preparation will be key, and with the weeks they have available, that shouldn't be a problem for Urban and his coaching staff. Player execution is the unknown, but solid preparation "should" lead to solid execution.
I'm also not sure how much I can take from what Clemson has done against their opponents. They gave up a lot of points to Pitt, Wake and VaTech as well as to the other "good" ACC teams. OSU should be able to score enough to win, I'm more concerned with the pass defense and getting pressure on Watson.
