On paper, the O-line should be fine if they can gel in camp and avoid the catastrophic injuries that cut into depth long-term.  Frankly, I’m excited to see Jackson play, because anyone that can draw accolades while at Rutgers must be a special player indeed. 

And maybe, just maybe, this year’s slobs will commit fewer false starts.  I swear, sometimes watching them the last two years reminded me of when JB Shugarts was out there.

To be honest, if the players are anything like their coach, they probably didn’t recognize the irony or the potentially curious response wearing a Rose Bowl pin would elicit.  We all know that it’s just a B1G/Rose Bowl promotion for the media, but it’s still funny that last year’s champions weren’t wearing them while the wannabes were.  

Yep, seems about right.

As a Steelers fan, I suspect that Belichick is an evil wizard who will never retire and Tom Brady sold his soul to keep playing like he does. If that means Day stays at OSU (assuming he's mega-successful, of course), Steelers be damned! I hope the Pats job never opens up.

With almost the entire defense back that ended the year and a staff that's motivated and saying the right things, I'm optimistic. But, those players have a lot to prove as a unit. If the same kinds of issues arise this season, I'll start believing that the problems may be a lot more about the Jimmies and Joes, and less about the Xs and Os.

Really well put. Personally, I'd like to see Lawrence and Clemson's D sit out the entire season. Maybe throw Tua in the mix too, if I'm allowed to be selfish.

Thank you, St. Steve the 11th, Patron Saint of the Olentangy, for reminding everyone that we got exactly what we wanted with the defensive staff changes.  Great post!  I agree that the change should be considered a huge strength for OSU, especially after the dysfunction of last year.

In the time it took me to hit "reply," I think McFarland just went for another 80.

As a student, I was there near the top of section 10A, IIRC. Besides Wheatley's helmet getting stolen the night before the game, what I remember most is how tense that game was, and how I could practically see the noise with the safety, blocked FG, and pick. I've been to probably 100+ games in the 'Shoe, but never one that loud. We partied until about 4:00am, then walked to a Taco Bell that stayed open. I woke up around noon with a flashing traffic barrier in my room that my roommates told me I had insisted was mine on the way back from Taco Bell. Good times...

I hadn't heard Lydell Ross referred to as a "time gap" before, but it fits, as in, "he always took his time hitting the (now closed) gap." Pittman was pretty sweet in '05 though.
