Only thing I think he overlooked was our defense; we have a lethal line but a drop off in the secondary. I know it's a small sample size to associate with "dead last in passing defense," but in the same breath it at least makes the point that things are not going well in those units.

Comment 10 Sep 2017

Not defending the play of JT last night, just wanted to get one thing across: this isn't just a QB problem on offense. Our WR's, Prince on OL, and playcalling are all making this problem way worse than just one bad QB performance. I get wanting to put someone else in at the position, but if Haskins/etc were driving the same "car" that was our offense last night, things wouldn't have turned out much better.

Comment 30 Aug 2017

Almost wrote a new comment's worth saying exactly this. Gut reaction is to go "ooooh for sure Brooklyn Dagger yeah f TTUN" but in all honesty that's not exactly impressive (unless I'm missing some kind of amazing play-calling, X's and O's significance behind that play). I give it to Brown as well.

Comment 16 Sep 2016

Unsanitized teams.

Unfair balance, ie Navy should never beat ND, so when they do it's actually a big deal.  Life is not fair, college football reflects life.

Guys playing at Texas named Colt McCoy, or guys playing at LSU named Jean-Fransioux (I have no idea how to spell it)



Generally hospitable people from opposing teams who don't take themselves too seriously vs. NFL people who need to get a life.

Student Sections

Big old stadiums


College towns

Agree ^^^

For me, I also think it happens to be that during the week, I focus on getting to Saturday (the very next day after the work/school week). I know I wouldn't say the same if I was a bigger fan of the NFL, but I personally associate Sundays with "ugh, have to go back to the grind tomorrow."

Comment 06 Dec 2015

One weird AF fluke by the goalie and a blown call by the linesman made the difference. That's a frustrating way to lose a final. I hope I can let this go sooner rather than later, but I can only imagine the "what-if's" in the players' heads right now.

It seemed like right around/after OSU signed their (stupid) merchandise deal with J America that Trademarks & Licensing really started to hound down on people, both of which seem unnecessary but legal from our side of things. I tried to make group t-shirts for a BuckeyeThon team, and while it wasn't directly OSU stopping me (the t-shirt website said no), it was pretty frustrating nonetheless.

So basically Beat Blue.

Comment 23 Nov 2015

While it's certainly disappointing that they weren't able to continue that streak of outplaying their opponents this week, my money remains on the offense that is 48-4 over the past four seasons when they face its biggest rivals in a few days.

Well written article, especially this last line. I think they'll be ready to put in a fight come Saturday. Just comes down to's praying for those mistakes to be fixed mentally and physically.

Comment 22 Nov 2015

This showing against MSU definitely doesn't inspire confidence in our ironically bad offense, but I do think this team *can* beat TTUN given it's (perpetually untapped, supposed) potential. That being said, while I usually subscribe to the idea that anything can happen in The Game and that it's an isolated 1-game season as far as mentality is concerned, it's going to be hard to keep emotions/after-effects from the loss from bleeding into next week's game, if only a bit.

I know we tend to see anything less than a championship as a wasted season in recent times, but for both personal reasons and for the good of our sports-induced blood pressure spikes...let's PLEASE beat the s*** out out TTUN.

Comment 21 Nov 2015

Unemotional and honest. I appreciate this.

Comment 21 Nov 2015

It's sure as heck what I and many of Buckeye Nation are praying for, that's for sure.

Comment 03 Nov 2015

No one gave a thought to our title chances last year before we beat MSU (and even then until we finally won the B1G Championship, honestly), so I'm honestly not too worried about the poll until then. Getting that "impressive win against a bona fide team" in MSU will be the turning point (and ticket back to Indy). One game a time, boys...

Comment 11 Oct 2015

Klinsmann doesn't deserve to lose the job after that, but some players and their places in the starting 11 need to be re-evaluated (lookin at you, Dempsey). Likewise. Akron U-native DeAndre Yedlin deserves to start for his effort and skill. Tough way to lose, and hopefully a fire to be lit under the team's collective butt.

No one asked for my opinion, but no one else in my family wanted to hear it at 12:45 AM so I'm venting it here (the CBJ loss didn't help the sports karma either).

1) She works for ESPN. Their brand = the moar clicks, the better.

2) I get what she means, but to try and take "brand recognition" out of any kind of equation in this day and age of FBS football is ignorant. Now, do I agree with that principle, all allegiances aside? No, a perfect system would take ANY kind of bias out of the equation, brand recognition and all. But that's not how today's system of popular voting-based rankings works.
