My sentiments exactly.  My second highest priority outside of the Buckeyes' goals is making sure there's a Blutarski 0.00 chance of either Franklin or Harbaugh hoisting up a B1G trophy . They could come into Ohio Stadium winless, for all I care. 

It's the same reason I don't want "The Game" rivalry to gain any national interest, since that would imply we start losing a few of those.

Olave is much more versatile.  He's good for the short (YAC) , intermediate and long routes, not to mention his special teams feats.  Devin was an over the shoulder target who would often disappear for games until a long ball was launched. ( I may be unfair in memory of Devin, but Philly Brown, Jalin Marshall and Can't guard Mike did much of the yeoman's work down the field.)

I think they'll give Penn State a solid tough game in happy Valley , but don't expect them to come away with a win.  The following week however, Tom Allen will have them finally ready for a major victory in Bloomington that's been elusive to them for some time against TTUN.

I know in advance this is a horribly bad take, but I am starting to be concerned he WILL BE  reinstated for Rutgers and end up injured in a meaningless game.  (Rutgers has a history of low/below the waist/dirty blocking against us, if I recall correctly)

I desperately want to see him play against the PSU QB and Patterson.  The paranoia of external forces working against us is starting to run deep in me.

I will look forward to seeing January 14th  articles all across sports media claiming the 2019 Buckeyes could beat the Bengals and Redskins.

Comment 11 Nov 2019

2005 Texas doesn't belong in that group.  That would be way too much cardiac stress to have a back and forth battle like that.

Comment 11 Nov 2019

2003 Oklahoma looked unstoppable at this point of their season.   They went though the season beating everyone 60-10 or something like that.  Most analysts were pronouncing them the greatest team ever assembled.  Then, inexplicably in their final regular season game,  a Derren Sproles Kansas State team walloped them 35-7.  Cautionary tale for those caught up in the current hype.

But Ohio State in turn , walloped KSU in the Fiesta Bowl .  (So via transitive property - we were the greatest team of all time in 2003)

Yes one score because Z. Harrison flexed and another on lackadaisical  kickoff coverage.

Comment 10 Nov 2019

Although I wish he stayed a Buckeye, he did what was best for him and I have no regrets and wish him the best (until our paths cross).  He's having a monster year, but in 2018 we chose the right QB .  2018 Dwayne Haskins > 2018 Joe Burrow.

Comment 10 Nov 2019

Mentally,  I can already picture the opening possession to end possession for Penn State highlight reel with Rush's Tom Sawyer Intro as the background music (ala Waterboy) , while Chase is wreaking absolutely unnatural  havoc on the Penn State O-Line and Backfield .  " A modern day Predator mean mean stride..."   

Comment 10 Nov 2019

Looked pretty bad at first, but as he walked off to the sideline at the end , I didn't see much of a limp or hobble - seemed to be walking fine but may just be sore (hopefully). 

Comment 09 Nov 2019

No one is saying we aren't worse off, but are you saying without Chase Young, PSU is the better overall team?  I don't see it.  I hope we don't have to find out.  Arm punts against 3 future high round draft secondary picks?  I still like our chances at home is all I'm saying. 

We also really needed JT Barrett after he went down in 2014, but we discovered we still had a TEAM after that.

Comment 09 Nov 2019

I think the suspension at most should be 1-2 games, but this desperation by some of prioritizing having him back for Penn State because we have higher chance to lose the game without him is out of whack. 

With him, I think we are head and shoulders above Penn State (and anyone else).  Without him , we are still the superior team talent-wise.  If we can't win a home game with better players, depth and coaching , then we never truly had a championship TEAM and don't deserve it. Sh!t happens and it could have easily been an injury or something else to take a major player out of a major game.   This is not a one man team , like the teams of Vince Young or Cam Newton. 

Comment 08 Nov 2019

If we can't beat PSU (or any team) without Chase Young, then I question whether we deserve to win it all. 

If you take our current depth chart lineup of Smith, Harrison, Friday and Jean-Baptiste, you have all 4 and 5 star (3 top 100 DE's) .  Add in Jashon Cornell (a former 5 star), who can swing out for good measure, and even with Cooper still out on injury, if this was any other B1G team they would considered incredibly talented and dangerous and at least a top 3 unit in the B1G (if not still the best)

Comment 08 Nov 2019

Jashon Cornell can swing outside as needed as well, due to depth at DT .  He has plenty of size.  We've already seen in and I suspect we will see much more.

Regarding our current DE lineup, if this were any other B1G team , we would be remarking on the talent and depth  of having a 4 deep of all 4 and 5 star (3 top 100) DEs.(Harrison, Friday, Smith, Jean-Baptiste)  They may not be as dominant without Chase , but should be more than fine, assuming they are >80% healthy.

It all comes down to mental focus. 

Comment 05 Nov 2019

Ha!  Wanting more to bank on the so called  "prestige" of their program rather than having to earn it.  That way he can have his 2 "Big Game Jim" losses while beating the mediocre teams and still get an invite.  I'm not necessarily against expanding the playoffs, but killing the Conference Championship  when you have 14 teams is full on dumb.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

Really don't want to play Wisconsin again, so I'll root for Minnesota.  We also don't need an over-hyped match-up with PSU and I'm still about winning the division first, then B1G then on to the possibly bigger things. So Michigan and PSU can lose the rest of their games for all I care. I want there to be absolute zero chances of either of those knucklehead coaches hoisting up the B1G trophy.
