Although I've lived and taught in the land of TTUN for the better part of the last 30 years, I'm a native of Chillicothe, the great state of Ohio's first capitol. Ironically, I got more interested in OSU football after Coach Tressel got in trouble and Braxton Miller was in his heyday. With Coach Meyer's lamented departure, a new Day is dawning. Go Bucks!

I've got no problem with LSU at #3 (Geaux Jeaux Burreaux!), but OSU is a better, more balanced team (see Dan Hope's piece several days ago- College Foorball's Most Balanced Team).

2019 LSU offense is great, but defense is highly suspect, just like OSU 2018. Jeaux may look like the second coming of Peyton Manning but the LSU DL tuckers out in the second half and all bets are off.

Another great one from Ramzy.

I love Joe Burrow and hated that he left until Air Dwayne took flight. I think Joe has a Peyton Manning type game and I hope he has a great 2019 season and plays on Sunday.

That said, let’s not conflate Joe completing his degree and leaving with integrity with those who utilize the portal for debatable reasons, whether we think that’s legit or not.

RIP. Havlicek made me a Celtics fan back in the day. He was the basketball equivalent of Pete Rose without all the off-field issues. Fwiw, Buckeye Larry Siegfried was also on the Celtics for several years in the 60’s.

No hate for JTBIV here but Braxton Miller singlehandedly brought me back into Buckeye football fandom.  Still hoping Braxton can make it in the NFL

Get the best players who fit tOSU culture, wherever they are from. The intangible native buckeye factor should be huge when it’s a close call.

Another great read from Ramzy.  I typically read posts here without looking at who wrote them, but usually a couple paragraphs in I can tell it’s Ramzy.

I think McLaurin may surprise a lot of people. He’s a complete player- receiver, blocker, spec teams gunner- with strong character and work ethic. He could have a better career than some of his more highly touted teammates.

As a lifelong Reds fan, I can vaguely remember Waite Hoyt. I’ve had good times and bad times with Marty, lately mostly bad. A couple years ago he was on a vendetta against Votto, based on rbi stats alone. He doesn’t get the new stats at all. But he and the old lefthander were magic much of the time.

Not a Thom fan, so I hope it’s true that he won’t succeed his father.

To my eyes Fields seemed to have a great initial burst and lateral quickness but not as much sustained downfield speed.

Interesting that his most consistently effective plays were pulling it down and taking off, often ending with him taking big hits rather than avoiding contact or sliding. Will Day encourage that?
