Sounds like the name of the game will be ball control and time of possession. The best way to defend Clemson’s offense is keeping them off the field. If OSU can establish the run game, they control the clock and thus the game. Let’s hope it works out.

I do think he takes personally...how could he not. He gave everything to this school and didn’t win the starting job. But I don’t think there’s any bad blood or even hard feelings at this point. If there were he wouldn’t be spending holidays on OSU’s campus or still talking to his old coach on a regular basis.

So, if I'm getting this correct, Young accepted a (relatively) small amount of money from an agent last year. It's unknown exactly what the money was for but one can assume several things:

- An agent giving a kid money is not a gift of charity. This guy was hoping to sign CY when he went pro. As petty as it is, this is an NCAA violation and since it's at OSU this story will be amplified tenfold. 

- There will be punishment. Whatever the punishment is, it will probably be worse then OSU deserves (because it's OSU), but not as bad as idiots like Dodd are speculating.

- The safest assumption is that CY's OSU career is over. I just hope OSU doesn't get hit with a postseason ban. I think that would be going way too far.

Beat me to it. Can't say this was unexpected....am guessing this was planned for awhile and they opted to do it midseason to get head start to search for a coach.

Comment 02 Nov 2019

I didn't really start following recruiting until Urban came in....can anyone say if Tressel recruited kids from Michigan at the same level? I love the strategy from a competitive standpoint...force Michigan to spend more time recruiting their own state so they have less time to recruit Ohio. At any rate I always keep my fingers crossed that any kid OSU recruits from Michigan becomes a consensus All American.

You can bet your bottom dollar if the Terps score against us TTUN fans will be beating their chest calling OSU overrated and screaming for an upset. They just can't help themselves.

Comment 02 Nov 2019

It was me. And I know....Bama has been pulling that shit for years now. Mercer, Citadel, and now Western Carolina. OOC is meaningless if you lose. Imagine if OSU had scheduled an FCS opponent instead of Oklahoma in 2017....

Comment 01 Nov 2019

Yep. Beanie shoulda had 40+ carries in that game. He averaged 7 yds per carry....instead Tressel panicked and called a bunch of pass plays with Todd Boeckman. Tress was a great coach....but this was his worst game.

Comment 31 Oct 2019

LSU reminds me of OSU last year, with Joe Burrow being a slightly more mobile version of Haskins. Their offense can score on anyone, but D is another story. I expect Bama to win but am more than happy to be wrong.

Comment 23 Oct 2019

It happens all the time in CFB. It's hard to get excited about a noon game against a 2-4 opponent, especially when you're playing the best team in the conference the following week and it's getting lots of national attention. Lettermen Row interviews past OSU players all the time and they've all stated that this happens in college football. Of course, good teams still find a way to win, and Wisconsin didn't do that. They had multiple opportunities to put the game away and instead turned the ball over. 

Comment 22 Oct 2019

My thoughts exactly. Day's offense is built for  running QB. I think Burrow is a better runner than Haskins was but he's no where close to Fields. If Burrow stayed the offense would be more similar to what we had last year. 

Comment 20 Oct 2019

100% Wisky got caught with their pants down looking towards the OSU game. They had so many chances to put the Illini away but the turnovers ended up costing them the game. I do believe we still get Wisconsin's best shot and this game will be tough. 

The real matchup here is going to be which team's defense gets more stops. OSU defense is absolutely going to sell out to stop Johnathan Taylor and I just don't see Jack Coan beating OSU with his arm. Ceephus is a quality WR and will make some plays, but not enough for them to win. On the other side, OSU has way too much speed for Wisconsin D to keep up with them for 4 quarters. 

Comment 20 Oct 2019

Galloway reminds me of Herbie from the early 2000s....he's going out of his way to not look like an OSU homer and he's way over-doing it. Even his ESPN colleagues (namely David Pollack) are like "Joey.....SERIOUSLY???" Give him a few more years and he'll find balance like Herbie did.

Comment 19 Oct 2019

Urban and Cowherd were discussing whether or not Lincoln Riley should got to NFL if the Cowboys offered.  I don’t know that Urban was saying he’s interested in coaching the Cowboys today. I hope he doesn’t. I live in Dallas and can’t stand that team.
