They're dying to put the Buckeyes in primetime first chance Fox/ESPN get. Ohio State doesn't play 5 consecutive noon games anymore (assuming Miami (OH) is at 12:00).
To me it looked like Urban schemes for the marquee opponents and looked to out-athlete less talented opponents.
It's almost like Scott Frost has watched Buckeyes @ fill-in-B1G-West-opponent the past 2 years and smells blood in the water. Our guys better come prepare September 28.
I strongly relate to all of you... Being a degenerate doesn't help, though.
Congratulations Kalen and Coach Holtman.
Regarding Notre Dame, part of me says "Join a conference you arrogant, laurel-resting punks." However, with the likely hood of the CFP expanding to 8 teams I do not see that happening.
I'm not crying... You're crying.
Something about Urban's teams always needing a loss to turn the season around. Even at Florida. We all remember Tebow's now immortalized speech after the 2008 Florida Gators lost at home to Ole Miss. Florida pretty much slaughtered everyone else remaining on their schedule through the BCS Championship.
I recall watching Goldy rain on John Cooper's last homecoming game in Columbus.
Only Alabama can pull off a recovery of such proportion.
The week before the Iron Bowl when The Citadel comes to Tuscaloosa... THAT is when we find out how good The Tide really are.
2005 and 2007 were prime time "White Out" games that the Buckeyes split. The 2005 game was where the hope that wearing a Hanes undershirt when Ohio State comes to State College will ensure a victory for the home team; not one of Troy Smith's finest hours.
8+ folks who are Buckeye homers, but are not knowledgeable football fans. ^
I always looked forward to the "Viewing Guide" every Friday afternoon during the college football season, but that seems to have disappeared, too.
I still forsee more Buckeye fans in Jerry's World on Saturday evening.
I don't think we are going to see an angrier football team in 2018.
I logged in just to UV this. This is probably the most realistic, clear-headed take I've seen yet.
Everything about this team is a 180 from the previous few seasons.
My rationalization is the BCS took a 2 loss LSU team with a defeat at the hands of Kentucky into the NCG which was unheard of.
I am with you on this take.
My first Buckeye game I ever attended was the 1999 Wisconsin home banger. One of the worst non-Michigan home losses of my life.
You are correct, James. Urban was extremely choked up at the post game press conference vs. Wisconsin in '13. Bryant's leg injury was critical. That was a major blow to our secondary for the rest of the season.
