Is there a chart anywhere that shows how each candidate score on all of the different criteria? Like a table that shows how dominant each candidate was. Sounds like this is Spencer Lee's to lose?
He absolutely should have been called for stalling. There wasn’t even a warning. Their annoying ass fan base calls for stalling nonstop, even when legit work is taking place.
Pletcher wins and Romero doesn’t get pinned and we win the dual. Very disappointing.
It’s wrong in the banner title only. Not a good look, let’s get that fixed staff!!!
Very excited Kerry Coombs is back.
Up early for the Skull Session as I await the birth of our first child, and future Buckeye fan!!
Exciting future for my team and family!
Washington made it in 16 as well...
When you’re in the top 5, the class is NC worthy. We’re going to be just fine. I’m not easy on the Buckeyes, and there are position groups that need work, but if you remember this time last year when Michigan has a higher rated class, Meyer was leaving, Baldwin and Martell transferred....having a 13-0 CFP team and a top 3 recruiting class, I’d say we’re just fine.
ESPN and CBS have been pounding the narrative of top 10 wins “when they played them”
Who cares!! Texas sucks. The preseason poll should have no bearing after week 13. We have 9 conference games. We should only play FCS schools in the non-conference.
Just convert every 3rd down. That’s the plan.
Day deserves it, but you know Fleck will get it.
I think 4-9 are all pretty much equal.
What did you want the committee to do? Keep PSU at #4 after losing? Others have said it. The highest the committee was willing to move Minny was to 8, and PSU needed to be behind them.
Chase Young suspension has happened since. I think LSU will be #1. They dominated Bama despite the close final score. I’m fine staying at #2 the rest of the way.
Bosa actually knocked their starting QB out of the game. Right before halftime if I remember correctly.

I didn’t see anything too impressive in their game 1. In fact I’d say the threat level is low. I’m thinking OSU, PSU, Wisconsin, and Notre Dame probably all beat them. Then what will they do??

Couldn’t happen to a better fan base. Schiano dodged a bullet there.
I'm not asking for Florida or USC in addition to ND. But why can't you pick lower tier P5 teams to play, along with in-state programs for the OOC? Cal, UCLA, Louisville, Pitt, Miami (FL), North Carolina, Virginia, Boston College, Arkansas, Kentucky, Vanderbilt.....bigger challenge without being deemed tough.
I get ND is already on the schedule these years, and that the B1G schedule is a little wonky in 2023....but if we're going to schedule teams like this I'd rather have 2 games against in-state MAC teams. I'd rather play Toledo, Bowling Green, Akron, Miami, OU, or even Cincinnati than Arkansas State or Florida Atlantic. Prop up Ohio teams and AD budgets. It can't be that hard to get those teams to come to Columbus regularly for the paycheck. Alums across the state would pay to see the games too. I absolutely love attending games in the Shoe, but even I have little interest in going to see us play Ark State or San Jose State (again).
I’m pretty sure Krenzel has said in interviews that he was supposed to target the TE on the play, but he ended up throwing deep.
How can you talk of Olave's contributions last season and not talk about what he did in The Game?
Head Coach - Vrabel
I’d cheat and make previous NFL coaches my coordinators. Have some player coaches too.
OC - Ryan Day
DC - Hafley
Secondary - Coombs
Linebackers - Shazier
OL - Orlando Pace or Bentley
DL - John Simon
ST - Nugent/Ebner
Day is pretty good at this recruiting thing. Me likey.
This is pretty much how I would have it too. I might swap Ruckert. Is it bad I don't know who Pahl is? I totally agree that Wade and Okudah should be the corners, but I'm sure Arnette will play a lot still too. Prob as a nickel.
I'm real interested to see the RT battle. I hate to speak ill of captains, or former Buckeyes, but I couldn't believe that we didn't have someone better than Isaiah Prince these last few years. Stud has his hands full with all of the open competitions on the OL. I still think the 2nd biggest loss of any player to the NFL this year (besides Bosa but including Haskins), was Michael Jordan. But we'll see how things shake out.
Well....duh. That's why the whole defensive staff outside of LJ was let go. I doubt Mattison or Washington are going to worry about who started last year. They don't have much time to turn things around. They know Hafley and LJ won't be blamed if the front seven don't perform. It's pretty clear that both of those coaches will be focusing almost exclusively on that unit.
