If you were waiting for more, get over it. You've gotten all you're going to get. 

Enough said. Y'all have enough. You have the report.

I'm going to Columbus to welcome Urban back. Let's beat the crap out of Tulane, then send a message at PENN STATE [Mod Edit: Removed taboo reference].

 But alas Maryland doesn’t move the needle

Bingo!

Maryland doesn't move the needle, and we don't hear anything about PSU, MSU or Baylor anymore. It's just that we are Ohio State. We're constantly in the news and have one of the 2 most high-profile coaches in the country.

Opinions are like noses. Everyone has one. And given our level of success over the years, we have plenty of envious people who are eager to take us down.

But the cool irony is that we will continue to win. A lot. We have the largest US college football fanbase in the world. ESPN cannot ignore us. They have to change their tune or they're going to lose money -- OSU vs. TCU was the highest rated game in 3 weeks.

They keep asking if he thinks CS was ever abused, and all he says is I can only go by what the experts tell me.

And that was exactly the right answer. As he rightly pointed out, he couldn't play investigator, because that is tampering with the legal system as a representative of the university. Can't do that.

It's also about changing the narrative. 

I didn't count how many times Urban had to repeat himself, but it was a lot, and he was very detailed and covered all aspects of the situation.

He basically was kicking the legs out from under the chair of media tools like Finebaum and McMurphy. They have no more "hot take" to run with and they'll just seem foolish by continuing to bring this up, as everything has already been explained.

I think Jamez is on to something.

Being a middle-aged, crusty Buckeye fan ... what I enjoyed most was the resilience shown by the team. We expect most of our opponents to give up when down 21-13 in the 3rd quarter.

It reminds me of the 2014 Alabama game, down 21-6 in the first half. You need the swagger to come back.

LOL.

I have a different point of view. I'm so invested in Ohio State football (graduate, son of a professor) that I have to watch my anxiety level.

So, during the season I travel back for at least 2 games: 1 cupcake and 1 intense game. This year it's Tulsa then TTUN.

The cupcake games are like the spring game, you can just sit back, relax, chat with your loved ones and evaluate how the team is doing.

The intense games are where you're on edge, losing your voice, getting emotional and hoping to make it to the end. It's a different sort of fun, but I don't want that for 12 weeks a year.

I think Urban needs to control the agenda tomorrow.

Have plenty of things listed out about football, march through them, then take limited questions at the end. Don't let the media control the conversation.

This game was a confidence booster in the right way. 

If we had simply just blown TCU off the field, we still wouldn't know what kind of team character we have. I'm a victim of the Cooper years where we would blow out teams all year long, then choke against determined opponents. It's good that our team knows that it can prevail in a slugfest.

Agreed.

I like what Martell brings to the table. But if Baldwin is healthy I'd like to see him play too. He has an arm like Haskins.

I think TCU caught us off balance by scripting plays, running tempo, but not doing checks at the line. They just immediately ran play after play and we were out of position sometimes when the ball was snapped.

Props to them for having a good plan in the first half. They were also faster than I anticipated and they had some success running up the middle against our D line.
