I started getting into Ohio State football in middle school around 1993 but became hooked after my first game at The Shoe in 1995. This was the game against Illinois where Eddie George ran for over 300 yards and placed himself as the Heisman front runner. I had so much fun at that game and have been passionate about Ohio State football ever since. I do my best to watch or listen to every game they play.

I like Justin Field's chances of putting up big numbers on this Penn State defense. I think he's better than any of those other guys they've faced. Hoping for a big time game from Fields and our receivers!

This may be the only time we'll ever see the #1 team fall in the CFP rankings after winning by about 60 points. While LSU had a big win against the best team of this decade, they did give up 41 points to them and Tua was not even 100% healthy. I think Day is happy we are no longer #1 as it will help motivate this team even more entering the home stretch of their schedule. If they just keep winning and dominating, they'll be the obvious choice as the best team in the country.

I really hope this suspension is for 1 or 2 games max. Ohio State can afford to be without Young against Maryland and Rutgers but not after that. I had this feeling that this season was going too smoothly for Ohio St and some real adversity was bound to happen sooner rather than later. My hope is Ohio State brought this to light at the right time so that it won't keep Young out for the critical games down the stretch. He's been so fun to watch that it would really suck if we don't get to see him in a Buckeye uniform again because of this NCAA violation silliness!

These Buckeyes are dominating on both sides of the ball unlike anything we've seen in recent history. If they can keep it going, they'll be no doubt the #1 team at the end of the regular season. I like the clueless SEC biased pollsters keeping us down at #4 or #5. It shows a lack of respect and helps motivate this very talented team even more!

The top 6 are the best teams so far but they are not in the right order. The Buckeyes 1st team D is dominating everyone like I haven't seen in years. When the offense is rolling on all cylinders, it's very difficult for any defense to stop. This Ohio State team could hang with and probably beat anyone above them. Things will shake out more by week 7 so I'm not concerned with being overlooked at #6. My biggest concern with this team is the dropoff at QB if we ever have to play and win a game without Fields. That's where our Defense could be the difference.

Fields will be the starter, we all know it. Gunner will need to be ready to go if Fields goes down but hopefully we won't be in that situation. I believe it will take a little time for Fields to settle in and have a great grasp of the offense and get timing down with the receivers but once it starts clicking I think this team has the potential to be the most complete offense we've seen in a long time for Ohio State.

I think Alford has done a pretty good job as the RB coach. I would give him a B+. Lately, it appears that he's run into a rough stretch with guys who appeared to be locks for Ohio State. These next 3 to 4 months will be critical for him to recover from these blows and still land 2 really solid running backs. Hopefully he and the staff can pull something out of their hat to help recover from the latest misses.

This has been a fun last month with recruiting for Buckeye fans. Day and his staff seem to be doing a tremendous job getting the positions of need in this class. I really like where they're at with a ways to go until the first signing day. I would love to see them land at least one 5 star RB and a second guy who is under the radar from Ohio. The wide receiver class is unreal and sounds like it good get even better if Mookie Cooper commits soon. Keep up the great work coaches!

Franklin is like a slick used car salesman. He tells these recruits everything they want to hear and promises them championships at PSU but he can never deliver it on the field in crunch time. I'm convinced they'll never be elite or even great with him as the head coach there. If Fleming is smart, he'll cut through all of Franklin's bs and go to an elite football program like Ohio State. I predict Franklin will be looking for a new job before the 2021 season.

Tate would agree with you on this too but then he tucked his tail and took his talents to south beach. We'll never see the much anticipated Fields vs Martell competition after all. I'm sure Baldwin is not afraid of some healthy competition and he'll want to prove why he should start over Fields. It may be a long shot but anything can happen. Thanks for sticking around Mr. Baldwin. May the best man win the starting job!

Isn't this called putting the cart before the horse? Sorry if that analogy has been used but the Fields hasn't done anything yet in the scarlet and gray let alone been determined eligible to play immediately by the NCAA. I'm guessing his odds of winning the Heisman are higher than Haskins were this time last year. Don't get me wrong, I want Fields to take the big ten by storm this year but this is ridiculous!

I have a hard time believing any respectable NFL franchise that needs a QB would have Murray ahead of Haskins. I'm not saying Murray is going to be a bust but he is so short and doesn't have the arm strength that Haskins does. Running QB's do not last in the NFL because of the hits they take. Haskins fits the mold of a NFL QB with his height, arm strength and accuracy. I'd take him over Murray anyday. Think Haskins has a bright future as a NFL QB if he can stay healthy.

I think somewhere between the time that Tate interviewed before the Rose Bowl and he put his name into the transfer portal, something happened to sour him on staying that we don't know all the details about. He seemed pretty confident in his ability to win the starting job in the spring during those interviews and he was very sure of himself. I think Ryan Day had an honest conversation with him after the Rose Bowl about the direction of the offense and he knew his style play wasn't going to fit Day's QB philosophy vs. Meyers QB system. I think the QB room will be fine when it all shakes out by the Fall. Looking forward to a healthy competition and will be rooting on whoever they determine is the best guy for the job to win games.

Oh no, the sky is falling on Day! Relax, Fields was a really nice first transfer into the program if you ask me. I'm sure Day has a plan to get another QB for depth. Maybe Ohio State is better off without Martell if he doesn't want to stick around and compete with the other guys to be the starting QB in 2019?
Comment 11 Jan 2019
I believed that Martell would get his shot this year before news broke of Field's transfer to Ohio State. I was never really high on Tate but thought he would be similar to JT Barrett with a run-first mentality. I followed him on Twitter and he ran his mouth a lot and said some things that were pretty bold. He even sounded like he was going to stay around and fight to win the starting job. I wonder if coach Day sat him down after that and had a good honest conversation with him. I still think he has a lot of maturing to do (as most of us did at that age.) It's too bad it didn't work out for him at Ohio State, but I'm sure he'll land on his feet somewhere and get another shot. Good luck! Next man up!
