If he was suspended for a year, then he would be eligible for the playoffs in theory.
I recall Hilliard Davidson winning a couple.
I thought I have read that OSU likes Styles at DB more than WR. OSU has a lot of elite WR recruits verbally committed.
Tons of respect for this young man. Happy to see he is having a great senior season and silencing doubters, of which there were many.
It was my first trip to Michigan Stadium. I would say honestly about 20%, which doesn't sound like much but is very significant, one out of every 5 people. Watching the replay I was amazed how loud the OSU contingent was. DEFINITELY a higher percentage of OSU fans than the amount of UM fans I have seen at The Game in Columbus.
Obviously the percentage of OSU fans rose as the game wore one. A decent amount of Michigan fans left at halftime, and by the 4th quarter it felt more like 1/3rd Buckeye fans.
Definitely felt comfortable in AA, and I will say the UM fans were respectful. Met a very nice Michigan alum, 67 year old guy who I walked with over a mile from where I parked all the way to Michigan Stadium.
Maybe it is his size. He is listed at 5'7, 150.
Michigan Stadium. Seeing The Game in Ann Arbor has always been on my bucket list..well an OSU victory in AA specifically.
Not with the schedule OSU played and the fact Bama defeated a top 5 Georgia squad for the SEC title while OSU defeated an average Nebraska squad for the 2nd time in the B1G title game. IMO Bama stays ahead of OSU but agree to disagree.
Ohio State would not have played ND in the title game even if there was no postseason ban. Fans assume it would be the case but if you look at the polls from that year and how it played out it is very unlikely OSU would have been voted ahead of Bama.
I can't do energy drinks, they make me super jittery and my jaw clenches like I am on drugs LOL.
I only drink a couple of cups of coffee a year and try to limit my iced tea intake, especially late in the day. I also drink caffeine free sodas. I would probably have a heart attack if I drank a whole Monster or Red Bull.
I have no problem with what Saban did, the explanation makes sense. Still first half.
I feel bad for the seniors like Cooper and Mack. Hopefully they are close to being back.
Clemson. They are the most balanced team IMO and they have had the Buckeyes number.
Pretty interesting article. To me, a perfect example of this is Texas. Not to knock LSU, but they got a lot of respect for that early season 45-38 victory. Granted, it was in Austin, but Texas' body of work isn't overly impressive. They are 6-3 with a trio to Baylor in a few weeks and several close Big 12 games. But the matchup was hyped and primetime matchups leave an impression in people's minds.
I was a student in the mid to late 90s. It was like $6 or $12 a ticket for students my freshman year, I can't exactly recall, but you could get a student season ticket package for well under $100 in 1994. Last I heard it was $34 a ticket for students currently.
It doesn't matter if people watch it if they have a cable bill. I don't watch Lifetime or Bravo, but they still get a portion of my cable bill....or did before I cut the cord.
No, but NW has been a member for awhile LOL.
Chase is an elite player, but Dematha has been a DMV athletic power for decades.
My impression has always been that the DMV region is pretty cutthroat when it comes to football and basketball recruiting.
2015 OSU. If not them, then 1996 OSU.
Does Ohio State play OOC games below the Mason Dixon Line after September? Asking for a friend.
Agreed. 20-30 lbs of pure muscle in a summer without PEDs is very hard to do. Legal supplements or not. The human body and trainers can only so so much.
Exactly. I would put it at 50%, but if you don't think every P5 team, especially power programs like OSU, Bama, Clemson, Michigan, etc. don't have multiple PED users on the roster you are incredibly naive.
It is very hard for the NCAA, MLB, NFL, etc to catch or stop athletes from micro dosing with PEDs, and honestly the really don't want to catch the cheaters. The schools definitely don't want to catch the cheaters.
If anything, in house testing would be a great way of helping one of your student athletes know his levels so he or she could pass NCAA tests .
His personal opinion, not a statement.
He was in prison. He is out now.
Actually has great insight on CFB from what I have heard.
