Dude needs to take Professor Meyer's class Respect the Rivalry 101. Syllabus; work your tail off like you've never worked before and then whoop their tail like it's never been whooped before. And in the before and after just smile and let the score board speak for you.
The boys deserve this and more! Let em profit from their likeness and make sure they have top notch facilities; that's the least we can do for guys who bring so much to Ohio.
I'd like the alternates from 2017 to be used again. The Gray and White Wolves were epic. Still these aren't bad, but I'm ready for some variety or something new.
I'd donate to Wisconsin if they could somehow get Bama to play them at home in November.
Agreed. That being said, I'm still rooting for him and the Browns. Especially against the Steelers and the other Harbaugh 4 times a season.
This is why Urban is among the greatest coaches of all time. He has an ability to see things thru the kids eyes and let things go. He could have said 'Yeah, Baker is great. But controversy follows him everywhere he goes.' And been bitter about the flag planting but Urban is smarter than that and above that. He knows Baker isn't a trash human being for being loud mouthed and cocky. He's just another fiery football player! We love em in America and especially Ohio! I don't care for the Baker type player, I'm more of a Payton Manning or J.T. Barrett type when it comes to personality. But I still hope Baker Mayfield wins Super Bowls for Cleveland and for Ohio, just the way hope that despite the odds the Bengals and Mike Brown do too! (Except Baker has a much better chance at success right now) It's these kinds of attitudes and understanding of the people of football that allowed Urban to win essentially 4 B1G Championships, A national championship, A Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl, and Cotton Bowl and be 7-0 in The Game.
I think Dwayne Haskins having the best season of any player in football in 2018 and shredding records here got people thinking we're all the sudden a pass first team and I don't see it that way. Urban and I think Day will be this way too, always tried be BALANCED. The games in the past seven seasons in which we struggled offensively were the games we were one dimensional in. In the past decade I wouldn't say we were air heavy or ground heavy like we used to be, I'd call us balanced and I'd call it a huge key to the success of the program and I don't see Ryan Day trying to change that.
I thought Keith Byars was a freshman in 83?
Part of the reason Ohio State's attendance was 5,000 less in 2018 than 2017 was that I think up to 3,500 seats were taken out to put in more box sections.
As a stadium staff member it is one of my favorite 'duties' to take peoples pictures for them as they savor being in the Shoe. SO many of them are having a once in a lifetime experience, my family members included. I'm the only person in my family who has been to more than one game.
The ticket prices at the start of the Urban Era were about 60$-80$ across the board, now they're 90$-100$+ depending on the opponent. I think reasonable ticket pricing would fill the stadium more than amenities, though they are nice.
Nothing beats the experience of actually being there; nothing.
Don't put that Cincinnati Bengals bad karma on this team.
I could argue this hypothetical all day long for either side. There is only one thing where one side has an advantage that is clear and decisive and that's with Jim Tressel's offensive lines. Those were the most underachieving players I've ever seen. Full of top ranking recruits coming out of high school but they never significantly improved from their first game to their last. The fact that only one of Tressel's guys was beyond the first half of his tenure is very indicative of that fact. Alex Boone was a five star prospect, and got manhandled every time he faced even slightly superior talent. Not an indictment on Boone, he wasn't coached well at all here at Ohio State. He proved that by the immense improvements he showed when he got on an NFL roster. Just look at the Urban's O-line that blocked for Hyde in 2012 and 2013. They were miserable in 2011. The Bosa's would eat Tressel's line alive.
In short, Jim Bollman, the Walrus strikes again. Biting the Vest in the butt one last time.
Perfect name for their show!
Now there is a Mike and Mike show I'd watch everyday!
After all the abuse I see those railings take in South Stands it'll be interesting to see if any of those boxes are still there by November.
Apparently the gif I tried to upload didn't work. In short, screw Harbaugh for being, having always been, and always will be; a complete tool.
It's good vs. evil.
It's a way of life.
Never lose to them. Urban didn't.
May God bless the United States of America and it's greatest state; Ohio!
That's why Urban is the baddest of the bad. I think even I could go out there and kill blue after that!
Haskins is so cerebral and learns and adapts so quickly, I think he'll be inducted into Canton one day.
What a rush!
Screw the NCAA.
It's stuff like this that makes me wish the Big 12 were divided up by the other four and we had four super conferences and could just get college football away from this petty, small minded, mafia-like organization.
Overall a let down. It had plenty of good moments but the show runners forgot about good story telling in the end.
I HATE an ending that leaves you with as many questions as did the beginning and GoT certainly did that.
Oh well, just going to remember the good moments from the show!
Talk is cheap and his is coming from the clearance aisle at the Dollar General Store.
Yeah I don't fault anyone who was taken advantage of. I get why some people get upset that people didn't come forward because maybe and I emphasize maybe, could have saved others. But the only blame resides with the monster who did this and were he not dead already, I couldn't blame someone for taking it out. The creatures like this and the ones at MSU and PSU should be death penalty eligible.
So creeps like this get away with their evil by telling their victims the assault the monster is doing to them is a medical procedure? So messed up. May the victims find healing in all outlets possible, and may perpetrators of these things around the world be destroyed as quickly as possible.
