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. 

Comment 25 Jul 2019

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.

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! 

Comment 03 Jul 2019

That's why Urban is the baddest of the bad. I think even I could go out there and kill blue after that!

Comment 19 May 2019

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. 

Comment 19 May 2019

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.
