Exactly. OSU was looking out for their best interest in bringing Fields, and both Martell & Baldwin are looking out for their own. I'm not sure I like this new world of transfers, but I understand it.
I noticed he had THE in caps when he listed the schools. He's all Buckeye.
I just heard it on 97.1, but no details yet.
@ MacDaddyBuckeye -
WHO YOU CALLING CRAZY!
Great to hear he's staying!
I think it's a Celtic (Welsh) god's name.
Well said, Wpbbuckeye!
Maybe. maybe not. Day may have told him that he was no longer a good fit.
Martell has been all Buckeye since he committed. I don't think for a minute that he is afraid to compete. He has a right to be angry &/or disappointed that UM retired. I think he has been told by Day that he is not a good fit for the offense OSU will be running. Frankly, I'll be really disappointed if he doesn't stay.
A classy goodbye. We need to be classy in response.
Any FIRM word on Larry Johnson's status? In my world he would have been the 1st one signed to a contract.
Do You Support a 4 or 8 Team Playoff?
Neither, actually. I want 6 teams. The 5 power conference champions & 1 at large team. Seeds 1 & 2 get a bye. 3 gets # 6 at home, and 4 gets #5 at home. Then the bowl games start like they do now, with a 4 team playoff. It rewards you for winning your conference, keeping that relevant, gives a 6th team hope, and gives the committee the job of ranking them, and only allows them to pick the # 6 team.
I'd be surprised if we won - what is wrong with saying that?
Then urban needs fired immediately for allowing team to crap the bed all year on the effort tip.
Would love to see Ash leaving Rutgers. Schiano leaving OSU. And Ash back to OSU.
You're on. Although there's the possibility that this will be the first time I've ever felt bad about contributing to a food pantry! Let me know if you make it to Columbus.
You may be a Michigan fan, but I have enjoyed your reasonable takes on 11W. So how about a friendly wager? A six pack of your choice from THE Columbus Brewing Company if Michigan wins vs. a six pack of my choice from Bells if the Buckeyes win. What do you say?
I've been thinking along some of these same lines recently. Thanks for putting "pen to paper". I do think this is our last year of Urban, after seeing the press conference concerning his arachnoid cyst & what was said. He was paving the way for an exit. If not, I will be pleasantly surprised.
I'm with you, Padrino. I'll cheer for the Buckeyes to the bitter end, but do I think we'll get it fixed?
After all, this ain't South Bend.
Burn, baby, burn...
Bye, bye..... you attention seeking, incompetent, narcissistic jerk.
@Tx - I said this above:
"I think the reason this has been brought up now is to prepare the way for retirement after this year. Getting out in front of the story. If OSU loses 2 more games & he retires the media will be all over the Zach Smith angle & the team failing - as "UM is a quitter & is quitting because he foresees OSU's decline". Remember the shit he took for retiring for health reasons form Florida? If he retires & THEN brings up the headaches & arachnoid cyst it will look worse. So get out in front of it. And God bless him if he wants to retire & reduce his headaches by reducing his stress. I'm grateful for the 7 year ride we've been on!
