Birm mentioned on Zach Smith’s podcast that a 5 star recruit that was in town while game day was there got caught trying to take the OSU gear that they give recruits to wear during their visits. Apparently they “loan” them gear to wear but let them know that it must be returned before they leave. I assume it’s because it’d be a violation. Anyway Birm said they caught the kid with a bunch of gear hidden in his gym bag that he was supposed to return. After that they stopped recruiting him. They said the kid wanted to go to OSU. They never named the player but it sounded like they were talking about Parsons. It would make more sense that was the real reason and not because he went on the Game Day stage and took pictures.
Miller and Stroud both hath to be thrilled with the possibility of lining up four wide with this WR class. Good luck guarding that. Sure teams we play may have one or two really could cover corners that may be able to cover one or two of these guys but all four? God I hope all of these guys can dodge the injury bug. The possibilities with these four in the lineup together are endless.
There’s only one Orlando Pace. He was the best O tackle I’ve ever seen play in my 35 years of watching college football.
Anyone that watched that game with a critical eye knows that game wasn’t close. OSU was 3 dropped TDs and a BS reversal from being a 3 TD win by OSU. Clemson couldn’t move the ball until Wade was out. OSU wins that game 8-10 times. The better team loses all the time in the NFL. It doesn’t mean the team that won is better. Also Day out coached Dabo the whole game.
It’s possible to acknowledge both the many great accomplishments of JK and the fact that he dropped two easy TDs that would’ve changed the outcome of the game. It doesn’t take away from his greatness. I’ve seen the best to ever play the game drop easy passes. It happens. I’m not mad at him.
Seeing a Miami defender sprinting to the sidelines to put on a turnover chain while down 7-0 to La Tech in the Independence Bowl is an embarrassment to Miami football and is exactly why the program is a dumpster fire. I almost feel sorry that JT broke a once proud and elite program. Not sure which is a more dejected fan base, Michigan or Miami.
I am so fricking excited about the Pro Bowl. My son’s 10u flag team is one of 8 teams that will be competing at the Pro Bowl. We will get a chance to meet all of the players and help pack food/care packages for the homeless with them. If they make it to the championship they’ll play on the same field the Pro Bowl is played on and will be honored at halftime. But no matter what we get to the Pro Bowl too. I’m having my son bring his Zeke and Thomas jersey so maybe he can get them signed.
Totally agree. It’d be nice to find a great DB/Co DC that doesn’t have aspirations of being a head coach. I’d take him in a heartbeat.
Believe it or not the testing has become so fine tuned that if a supplement company uses their vats for multiple supplements a small amount of residual amount of a “banned” substance can show up in non banned substances. Joe Rogan was talking about how they are talking about scaling back the limits because guys are getting hit with suspensions based off of infinitely small minute traces which wouldn’t even have any effect.
Damned if you do and damned if you don’t. We’ve had a few elite coaches come and go and we had a few mediocre coaches that over stayed their welcome. The simple fact is OSU pumps out head coaches and coordinators like they pump out NFL CBs. LJ is the only long term elite coach that we’ve had stick around.
No. His last game before his meltdown he was throttling Alejandro Villanueva who is a pretty good OT. He’s an elite pass rusher. And for people saying he should be traded because of what he did remember we have a RB that threw a woman to the ground and kicked her which is far worse IMO.
What a brilliantly written piece and such a amazing story!!! Well done.
Selfishly I’m sure Day would love to have him back but I’d bet every single coach on the staff would tell Chase that he has to go. He’s completely healthy and at the top of his game. Too much risk coming back. Time for that young man to go make some life changing money that could set him and his family up for life.
Next Trophy he gets is his own tree in the grove and with that he becomes a Buckeye Immortal
I may be in the minority but I’d rather play Clemson. Our defense does very well against drop back passers. Chase and friends will be able to tee off with out worrying about losing containment. Plus Hafley has a lot of experience for game planning against NFL style offense.
A few weeks I ago I said that this year’s football team may be the best Buckeye team I’ve ever seen in my 42 years. I’m starting to think the same about this year’s basketball team. They are destroying teams right now on the offensive and defensive side of the ball just like the football team. Dear god I hope they flat line Michigan in basketball too.
It’s an awful take by miserable uninformed people. The people that make those comments have zero direct knowledge of Urban’s medical history. They’re made out of complete ignorance.
It means you’re only allowed to have half the amount of the legal limit of alcohol in your system while playing basketball.
I’m curious if Washington and Mattison will have any impact in helping the offense counterpunch Brown’s defensive schemes.
If a one loss PAC 12 or BIG 12 Conference Champion gets passed over for a one loss non Conference Champion Alabama they should immediately file a collusion lawsuit against the NCAA. This year more than ever they’d have a case if they were left out. There’s no way this particular Alabama team with a mediocre, unproven back up QB that hasn’t beat a legit team all year should make it on over Oklahoma or Utah if they finish with one loss.
Is this Rutgers interested in Hafley rumor based off of Bret McMurphy info because if it is I wouldn’t put too much stock in it. I’d trust a fart the morning after taco Tuesday before I’d trust anything that walking colostomy bag has to say.
We landed Devon Hamilton (3 ️) after missing out on Terry Beckner, Christian Wilkins, Neville Galimore, Daylon Mack and Shy Tuttle and it seemed to workout pretty well for us.
I think we’re 11-0 going into rivalry week and are heading to the B10 Championship.
It takes a lot to get the older Alumni off their asses to cheer. Good job everyone
If Alabama loses it’s because they didn’t want to be there
