Been a fan since I was a youngster. Born and raised in Ohio. Moved all around the state but never loved any area more than Central Ohio. Glad to be back ;-)

I'll believe it when I see it in action (playing faster, that is). If you were to ask me, here's what the starting LBs should look like.

OLB-Harrison (back up Pete W.)  Mike-Trejada Mitchell (back up Borland)   OLB-Browning (back up Gant)

I'm not sure why Al or Greg would even think of putting #20 or #32 in ever again (unless this playing faster concept comes to fruition)! The back end has A LOT to prove. When I was sitting in row 32A for the Oregon State game, I knew right then and there that OSU's D (especially LBs and Safeties) were atrocious. It persisted (as we all witnessed) all freaking year. Even against NW but thankfully not as much against Washington... The proof is in the pudding...guess we'll see in September.

PSU's wrestling team has been unreal over the last 8 years. I'd be extremely surprised if OSU can vest them next year. OSU will have to send at least half the team to the finals, as PSU does on a yearly basis (which is crazy). As a former HS wrestler, my lil DIII team was lucky to send 3 to state, let alone 5 or more as PSU does seemingly every year!

Schedule:  As mentioned before the non-conference is a miss year for us not having a big marquee opponent due to the TCU series being nixed. 

After the last three years with Bama and Clemson's schedule, I have ZERO concern with OSU's strength of schedule. As far as I'm concerned, just win and OSU is in this year. The distractions kept OSU out of the big four. That and losing to Purdue and Iowa the way OSU did, two years in a row. Just win baby...just win!

This is why Baldwin will still be around after Martell transfers in the Spring. Baldwin's smart and tough enough to realize he's a play away from starting. While Martell will most likely be the one who transfers closer to home after losing the #1 spot.(UCLA) ;) I loved Baldwin's choice of words about shying away from competition and waiting until his turn as a senior. He's a perfect fit for OSU and this current situation. I'm not so sure Tate is with being a 4 year starter in HS. It's a totally different story for both Qbs and their way's of handling it as well.

The lines were unreal. I was kind of shocked by the configurations for the stadium in general. It was a pain in the ass for general admissions. Where if you had tickets from a player on the team or if they prepaid, then it wasn't too bad to get in. I literally felt bad for the others waiting in such long lines to get in to a football game (even if they got there early...). I actually like The Shoe better...as far as getting in to the stadium. Lines are going to happen, especially when beer's involved (and frequently urinating lol).

I agree with the proximity replies above. It was a 4 hour flight for my parents and I, with a lay over in Phoenix and Vegas to and fro. Meanwhile, Washington fans had a 2 hour (or so) flight from their state. They were more juiced, bc of lack of a long flight. All that matters to me is who won... It was pretty loud at games end for the Buckeye fans who remained.
