LOL @ "not-our-rival". Excuse me if I use that a few times, I'll be sure to reference you.
No it isn't.
I love reading the comments about former players, it shows the true nature of fans. Which is to say, they really don't give a shit about these guys. I hope J gets himself on another team, there's plenty of time before the season starts.
Again, Drake is the clown, not some jackass who never attended the university, who will never be as respected, who will never even matter to this university as Drake. Good job guy. But yeah, football matters more than educational integrity.
Yes, HE'S the clown.
It's pretty easy to tell you actually didn't attend The Ohio State University. Maybe you'd be better suited to be an Alabama fan, education means nothing there, among other reasons.
Wow, my over under on Drake bashing was 20 comments and it took only 3. Congrats. It seems that Ohio State "fans" just find and create ways to hate Drake and Smith, it's so strange.
I consider this great for Rutgers, which can be good for us. Rutgers can go nowhere but up and hopefully Ash has gotten his guys in there and is ready to make a move. A better Rutgers is a better B1G East and is a better opportunity for us to play better competition.
GOD JT BARRETT SUCKS! I mean the guy cant even throw!
Seriously though, I will never get some of the Ohio State "fan" base. There are very few QBs in our history that I've personally witnessed that I will always remember; Barrett is one of those.
No, it's not exactly their political beliefs but I won't get in depth about my rational because of site policy issues. Also, I cannot just "leave politics on the side" as I do not have the same luxury as you to just forget all my troubles for 4 hours. And something tells me that your experience with the Bosas would me markedly different than mine, just do the research on papa Bosa, it's quite discouraging.
College football isn't an escape for me, it's a sport that I enjoy watching and supporting, but my support isn't unconditional.
Could we please stop talking about the Bosa? I know there are people here who will defend anything to the death but they are no longer hear. Plus the more I hear about Joey and their father beliefs the more I just want to distance myself from them and the fact that they even attended The Ohio State University when perhaps they would have felt more comfortable at Alabama or Mississippi or some other school below the Mason-Dixon line.
I am a kid from Akron, Ohio. I am not a fan of the state and not particularly a fan of Akron or Columbus. But the things I like most about being a Buckeye is that it's more than being from the Buckeye state, it's about attending and graduating from such a fine institution. I know, it's not Harvard or Northwestern but going to a respected university and getting my degree is the best thing about being a Buckeye. It's bigger than winning football games to me, I'd rather lose every game than to have a degree that doesn't mean anything.
I guess this is where some fans are at in the offseason, complaining about why some wins don't get as much praise as others.
Anyways, 1) 62 is greater than 42 and is also the most points we've every scored against michigan. 2) The Game was played in Columbus vs up there. 3) They came in as the favorite for the first time in a long time and many expected a loss. 4) the 2015 season was destroyed by Michigan St a year after we destroyed the last 3 teams to win a title. 5) Things that happen more recently have more of an effect, 6) We were actually thought to be in consideration to be in the playoff and destroying everything in our path was necessary and this was the start of that, whereas in 2015 we weren't even in the B1G championship game
Hopefully the best Ohio State player in the draft will not be disregarded because of BS. And if they pass him by they rill rue the day they skipped over Dwayne Haskins!
I am completely for this. Howard shows that even after all the beating and pretending that it doesn't hurt, the Ohio State hate is still strong. He is the Anti-Herbie, a guy who doesn't even try to pretend he's being objective and is a homer to the highest degree.
What hits? What the hell are you talking about? This is where we are now, just completely taking things out of context and associating them with us somehow? I mean people need to make up their mind, either someone says something and it's instantly regarded as truth, or we wait until actual evidence and proof comes out that makes something a fact.
I consider this fantastic! This not only provides the team with something to prove, it takes pressure off of them and puts it on the Michigan chokers. and most importantly, the odds to win the national championship has already changed from 7-1 to 9-1. I'll be in Vegas for a wedding and I hope its even better so I can drop a bill on it.
I really respect Joey Bosa's time at Ohio State. Team captain and national champion.
And NFL teams are going to rue the day they passed up Haskins!
I will never understand why some people make it a priority to look like an ignorant buffoon.
I'm glad that Mr. Larry Johnson will be there to represent Ohio State. Hopefully they will pan to him when Haskins is drafted.
Wouldn't YOU be the snowflake in this case since you're the one whining?
Freaking snow flakes
So does Trent Dilfer.
Admittedly, I was SOMEWHAT skeptical. Not really of Day but of the fact that he literally had 3 games head coach experience. But he's not only proven to be a great recruiter but he's not as hard headed as Meyer and is willing to admit he doesn't know it all, and this coaching staff shows that he's willing to delegate to others who may know more than he does, while simultaneously learning from them. I can feel that Day can be a year 2019 Meyer, with very little of his bad points and a fair amount of his good ones.
I had the unfortunate pleasure of attending the National Championship game against Florida in football AND basketball. I remember the same feeling during both, euphoria, then a slow numbing. Yes, I remember the football one more because the Ginn TD to start the game was amazing, but the basketball loss is right there and we hung in but then Florida just slowly pulled away. Championship losses hurt, no matter what sport. But let's remember...Auburn wasn't a championship loss. So really, there is no comparison, at all.
