Coach Meyer called Coach Day, "elite." Listening to Day's speeches, the justification for that label is crystal clear. The guy just has a natural gift for keeping a team focused, motivated, and purpose-centered. Damned glad he's in scarlet and gray.
Very welcome! That story was too bizarre not to share. 77 punts? Seriously?
It's a team-now we'll see what we have
Totally agree. Hate to see this happen for Chase, but I'm stoked to see what Harrison, Friday, Smith, and JJB can do when cut loose for an entire game. My hunch...they're going to play pissed and maul the very soul out of Maryland. These young men are wicked talented and there's not much tape on them, so it's more difficult for Maryland to strategize their blocking scheme--especially a day prior to the game. No doubt Coach Day and Sifu Larry (credit Gus Johnson) saw this coming earlier in the week--if not sooner--and they have a plan in place. I gotta feeling those four DEs are going to spend plenty of time in Maryland's backfield tomorrow. Can't wait to see it.
As long as we're in the classics genre...RAT FARTS!
All about throwing copious amounts of shade on Alabama and Clemson, but...they have plenty of self-reported violations. It's quite common and just part of the business. Understandable when one considers how ridiculously complicated NCAA rules are. There's a reason major schools have an entire department dedicated to compliance. Shit happens...and even more shit happens when the NCAA is involved.
And if you're in Hawaii...kickoff beer at 7:00am.

After their pathetic performance in the rain, ND's athletic department just placed an order for 85 of these. Book gets the first pair...
Dr, you must come from a land of ridiculously large and agile humans. I'm going to go ahead and say tOSU coaching staff and the VAST majority of posters on here disagree with you. A guy who is 6'8" and 360 pounds who can move like he does is quite freakish. And there's at least one NU lineman (who literally ceased to exist when Dawand went 4 to 6, A to B) who would describe Big Thanos as freakish.
Plenty of big guys out there who can't move. It's the rare few who can move as well as Dawand...and apparently he's picking up the blocking scheme quickly, so he's got a good noggin on his shoulders, too. The coaches saw freakish size and talent, hence, the reason he's wearing Scarlet and Gray.
and business was booming
Aldo Raine agrees...
Yep! Teague reminds me of 'Los and Chambers reminds me of Eddie. To think we could have clones of those dudes in the same backfield. Downright scary...in a good way!
Yeah...thanks a lot for bringing up Hoobastank, Ramzy. Now Googling, "Cost of hypnosis therapy to erase bad memories."
Shhhh! Can you hear that? It's the soft pitter patter of a thousand tears falling somewhere north of Toledo. Welcome to the Buckeyes Mr. Cowan! Oh...and here's a little something for TTUN...
Agreed. Listen to how Day talks about his family, the sense of community in Columbus, and his own description of Ohio State as the best place to coach in all of college football. If he's able to, I think he stays in Columbus at least until his youngest is in college.
That was awesome to see. There is ZERO reduction in Sifu Larry's expectations from 1st to 3d string. If you're on that field, you better damned well play to Buckeye standard...period...f-ing...dot.
Not sure why you got the DV, Js. The whole point of this article is learning from the film and you nailed it. To me, seeing the lanes is the only thing holding Dobbins back from Zeke-like performance. Zeke's strength was his ability to see those tiny inside lanes then hit them with enough speed and power to whip through arm tackles. He'd be past the LBs in no time which led to his ridiculous number of 20+ yard gains. Dobbins is on the cusp. If he can trust his blockers and hit those seams between the guard and tackle, he's gonna start piling up longer runs.
What kind of dressing do you think Lewerke wants on his turf salad for Saturday night? He's gonna be eating plenty with their O-line.
Agree TMac, plus input from Shelley. She certainly had a HUGE role to play in his decision and I don't think she'd be too happy seeing her hubby risk his health by coaching again.
Haha! Yep. Nice 76-point recovery, tho:)
