I think that every recruit for TTUN should have to sit through the complete movie, "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest", before they are permitted to sign with TTUN ..... If you are planning to enroll in an asylum, then you should have some idea as to what might be going on inside ......

Hairball is certifiable and unless you want to wear a funny coloured helmet, or get a free trip to Europe, instead of working hard at a Spring Camp, then recruits should be running, not walking, away from that sewer of a program.  "Those that stay, will be mediocre, at best" .....

Comment 16 Dec 2018

In all seriousness, are recruits and their parents so naïve in thinking that an assistant coach will most definitely be in place for the entire time their son is in a program ??  Studs stays on for another year, Nester signs up and then Studs leaves for the 2020 season, having Nester work under a new line coach - so, does Nester immediately seek a transfer ??  Not likely .....

Recruits, the smart ones, should take a good look at the overall football program to make sure it suits them, then do a thorough investigation of the academic programs of interest to them and finally, find out what the program will do for them after graduation (Real Life Wednesdays, etc .....). 

I believe that OSU takes a back seat to no one, when it comes to answering all of the above parameters.  But, I also think it's important to check out the other options thoroughly, so that there are no regrets when it comes to selecting a program for the next 3 - 4 years ....

Zack sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders, so going to play for a buffoon, who is leading a clown show, just doesn't make any sense whatsoever.  No parent, in their right mind, would give their blessing for their son to play at TSUN (if they do, it may be grounds for child abuse), knowing the squirreliness of the head coach.  Go to the Oregon Ducks if you're so intent on getting away from home.

As far as PSU - by all means, go to a school who's HC insists that they have a great program, just not an elite program and aren't ready to compete with the elite teams of college football.  If Zach truly doesn't give a damn about the football programs, or the NFL, but just wants a paid education away from home, then PSU might be the ticket.  There's no pressure and this coming season, it's very doubtful they'll escape a 4 loss season.

However, if he would like to play for the best fans in the country, be developed as a man, not just an NFL prospect, have his ticket written for life after football through the massive alumni network, be taught by the best position coach in America and receive 4 pair of gold pants, a few crystal footballs and always challenge for a national championship trophy, then home, sweet home, OSU, is where he should sign ....

Comment 12 Dec 2018

Frankly speaking - this whole recruitment may have nothing to do with football whatsoever ...... He's a freak athlete, who really didn't grow up in a football passionate environment and may simply be using football as a ticket for a free education and a means to get away from home.  As has been mentioned, he didn't have a favorite team growing up, so there are no loyalties involved.

It really is a no brainer, if he's interested in pursuing an NFL career, but he seems to have other aspirations and football maybe number 3 on his priority list .....

Comment 11 Dec 2018

Kid's done a good job of being respectful throughout the process to all the teams and fans involved.  If he's choosing TTUN, then it's not about football, winning or NFL aspirations, but simply a desire to leave home and be on his own.  I can't see anyone, meaning parents, sending their son, willingly, to TTUN as long as that nut job is calling the shots. 

Maybe it's the allure of traveling to exotic locations, rather than working hard for Spring ball, that has caught Zach's eye and that's what is prompting his interest in a losing program, which is going to be worse than this season. 

Sorry, but I have to shake my head as to why an Ohio player would thumb his nose at the OSU program and head north to the "funny farm" ??

Comment 09 Dec 2018

There's one subtle difference between Hairball and Ferentz .... Kirk's team beat OSU in the last 4 years, while the Puke & Blue have not ..... I can't believe the alumni aren't setting up the tar and feather party for that psycho - good news for us if he does stay ..... 

Comment 05 Dec 2018

These 2020 recruits still had a long way to go before signing day, so taking a step back, evaluating Coach Day as Urban's replacement during the 2019 season, is not a bad strategy.  I'm fine with them taking a step back, but if we put a great product on the field next year, I trust that they will come back into the fold, with all of their questions answered .... 

Comment 05 Dec 2018

It is a sad moment in Buckeye history to see a great coach and competitor leave the program, but I do believe that Coach Day will continue to cultivate the incredible culture that Urban brought to Columbus.  The ship is still in outstanding hands and those who decide to abandon ship will be shaking their collective heads, when Coach Day is lifting the NC trophy ....

My only real disappointment is that Egg-head Finebaum and McShitforbrains will be strutting around, patting themselves on the back and taking credit for predicting that this was Urban's last season as the Buckeye HC.  This, in itself, may be a historic moment, since it is the first time that Elmer Fudd has actually been right on any subject related to football ...... One more season would have been nice, Urban ....

Comment 02 Dec 2018

I agree .... He is certainly welcome to buy a ticket and sit in the stands to watch his former team play.  He should get no special treatment, field pass, etc ..., since it wouldn't be done for every player who wore a Buckeye uniform at one point.  Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye, but no special favors for a player who has made his decision to move on and quit (let's make that perfectly clear, he quit) the team.

I love the Bosa family and all they have done at OSU, but unless OSU is prepared to provide a field pass or free ticket to the third string, walk on guard from the 1995 OSU team, then Nick shouldn't receive one either .... fair is fair ......

Comment 02 Dec 2018

Everyone with a smidgeon of football knowledge knew that the Purdue game was the "trap" game to be concerned about and it played out just like the Iowa game.

If I had to draw anything from this season, is the OSU team's ability to play down to the level of their opponent too often and then pull out the win in the end.  The only game where we saw full blown beat down from start to finish was against TTUN and that was with shitty officiating, plus a gift of 14 points just prior to the half, to provide the illusion that Wolverwiennies were actually in the game.

We are where we deserve to be - out of the playoffs.  Thanks to a terrible loss to an average team, a defensive scheme without the back 7 to play it successfully and a completely undisciplined team that was in the top 3 teams in the country for taking penalties, we are exactly where we deserve.  I'm not happy about it and I hope that Bama beats the living crap out of the Sooners (they will) and it will be a Bama / Clemson final, with Clemson winning it all .... write it down .....

Comment 29 Nov 2018

Not a surprise regarding the offensive lines ability to pass protect, since they are all technically sound, with the one occasional exception - the tendency to get lazy and stop moving their feet, which usually results in either a sack, or the need to hold.  For once and I do mean, for once, the linemen collectively decided to follow the basic principles of pass protection (kick step, punch ... repeat).  Isaiah and Malcolm stopped leaning forward and instead, sat (O-Line understand) and as should be the case on every pass pro, they kept their man between their legs and did not allow them to cross their face.

So, in a word, they avoided "laziness" and the Michigan front seven just couldn't deal with an O-Line that actually came to play .....

Comment 28 Nov 2018

I don't know, but the non-call on targeting seemed to stay in line with the caliber of officiating during the entire game - in a word - shitty .....

Too many bogus calls and too many calls missed - the officiating didn't measure up to Pop Warner standards .... I do hope the officials all had the decency to hand back their pay checks from this game, since none were deserving .....

Comment 26 Nov 2018

If this 5-star offensive guard plays with the same impact as a 3-star Olave, then Northwestern may run out of defensive linemen ..... At OSU, it's all about these young players getting their chance due to a starter's injury and making the best of it .....  White got his shot when an ejection opened the door and he's never looked back .... Olave got a chance when Austin Mack went down and now, Wyatt is going to get in (unfortunately) because of an injury ....

Always remember, back ups are just one play away from a starting position ....

Comment 26 Nov 2018

the kid's got talent and has taken steps in the right direction, but he is not ready for Prime Time.  One and done seldom works well, especially when your resume only shows your college activity in 13 - 15 games.  Of course, if OSU runs the table, like in 2014 and wins the NC, then there really isn't much reason to return (even though he get one more college season under his belt), other than to show GM's that the 2018 season wasn't a fluke.

At any rate, pencil me in for a prediction that Little Simba is back with the Bucks next season ......

Comment 25 Nov 2018

Surprised that Herbie didn't pick for his school on Game Day, but he tried to keep it as objective as he could.  He should have factored in the home crowd, the fact that the "top" defense in the country was gashed at times during the lead up two weeks against Indiana and Rutgers and of course, TTUN had a complete nut job as a Head Coach.  If he would have taken the time to consider those items (plus Urban's record as an under-dog), he could have just avoided the embarrassment of joining the rest of the idiot panel and picked OSU to win.

Let's be honest, without the flubbed kick return and some serious help from the officials, TTUN would have been beaten even worse.  Best line of this website was calling Chase Sonofabitch, "Truck Stop Fabio" - pure genius ..... LOL !!!

Comment 24 Nov 2018
I'm wondering if Zach Harrison is having some second thoughts about his "supposed" decision to be taught by that defensive "guru", who's defense got totally lit up, even though OSU mistakes and questionable officiating, kept it, hahaha, close...... Hope the young man makes a good decision - maybe ask Chase Sonofabitch about how he enjoyed his experience the past few years ??
Comment 24 Nov 2018

Was there ever a doubt that he was going to play ??  The Puke & Blue will try to blow as much smoke as they can, to throw OSU off it's game.  Run the f##king ball right at the SOB and let's see how sound that girlie-boy shoulder of his is .....

We'll also find out today everything we'll need to know about the toughness of the O-Line.  Can they maintain all out effort on each play and FINISH every block.  I can promise you - if Price was still at center, the rest of that O-Line would be petrified to NOT put in a full effort on every play because Price would take the slackers behind the woodshed .... We just don't have a tough SOB on the O-Line and that's been the difference.  It needs to change today and everyone of them needs to turn on the "tough switch", or we can kiss a trip to the BIG championship game goodbye.

Comment 17 Nov 2018

Good call ...... they must think they'll beat us like rented mules ..... Love it - lulling them into a false sense of security - Urban is a genius ..... Nick Bosa has only been hiding in the weeds and will be back at practice Monday, fully recovered.  It was sooooo tough for our defense to give Michigan offense that false sense of security that Higdon will be able to score at will, by laying down every time our offense made the game close .....

Genius, pure genius ..... we may beat the Puke & Blue by 40 points, thus ending Hairball's tenure in AA ...... 

Comment 16 Nov 2018

Sorry, Jay, but you couldn't be farther from the truth ..... there is no lack of athleticism at any position (the roster is loaded with 4 - 5 star recruits), but two things stand out.  One - EXECUTION .... too often in the wrong place at the wrong time, either by scheme or stupidity.  Two - EFFORT .... a good example can be found on the offensive line.  Watch the front 5 on a running play, at the time the whistle is blown, at least three of them will be standing by themselves, not engaged with a defender.  At the time the whistle is blown, each should be in the process of pushing the defender off them, but too often, it's like they play a game of paddy-cake with the defender (and I'm not talking about chip blocks).  On pass pro, it's usually the one lineman who just stops moving his feet and becomes a turnstile ....

Effort and execution are lacking, not athleticism, although it has been improving.  It just seems that once Nick decided to abandon the team (his decision and tough to blame him for it), it was as if the entire squad just threw up their arms and said, "what's the point" ....

Comment 14 Nov 2018

There is no reason that Martell can't play the game in the middle of the field and not just red zone offense.  He can throw and run, plus run the option series much better than Dwayne.  Dwayne can throw .....

I'd like to see Urban give him the opportunity, this week, to split some series time with Dwayne, so we can see what he can do against a decent team (not great, but decent).

Comment 14 Nov 2018

I heard from a guy, who knows a guy, who talked to a guy that swears on a stack of Bibles that McMurphy bangs dead horses and cheats on his taxes ......

The above "true" statement has been authenticated by using the McMurphy law of legitimacy .... if someone says it, it must be true and even if they don't say it, make something up that you say is true, since no one can dispute it and the law won't touch you for saying it .....

What a legal system ..... wow ......
