I enjoy playing fantasy baseball more because I like the daily attention it demands. As far as strategies, I couldn’t be more opposite. Offense wins, at least in my success. I’ll win the five offensive categories and then piece together to my pitching staff to at least win strikeouts.

Clemson and LSU are two great choices, but my top choice would be FSU. I've always thought the Noles traditions were among the best in college sports. I would love to be in Doak, under the lights, hearing the tomahawk chop and seeing Osceola and Renegade plant the spear. And then see those beautiful Buckeye road unis run all over the garnet and gold for four quarters.

Wait, you clicked this thread just so you could comment that you’re not interested in this thread?

He brought in a "hired gun" to bolster a quarterback room that needed it. That "hired gun" was also perceived by everyone in the country as a rare talent to come available through the transfer portal. It was also his first recruiting class that wasn't even his for most of the cycle. I have to believe that moving forward, with full control of the recruiting cycles, he will hand pick his guy from the class.

My first clear memory is the '94 Michigan game. That was the first year we started getting season tickets, I was 5 years old. All the games throughout that year I was more interested in where Brutus was, and everything else but the game on the field. But that Michigan game and being on the field after it is my first clear memory, and when I really started to "get it."

The buzz inside The Shoe the following year for the Notre Dame game was when I officially became hooked for life.

Right, because I pointed out in one story that the editing process was apparently forgone. That certainly means I disapprove of the content on this site.

I, too, enjoy Ramzy's ability to tell a story. But there was a clear lack of proofreading going on throughout this article as well. 

Comment 15 Feb 2019

I have mixed opinions on the whole "ESPN hates Ohio State" narrative, but some of you folks are just looking for a reason to suggest it. If you read the entire article, it discusses why Ohio State isn't in the top 10. The story basically says why FPI is a flawed metric. ESPN has already shown what they think of the Buckeyes in their 2019 way-too-early poll, and you can bet they'll have the Buckeyes in the top 6 when they release their final preseason poll as well.

Comment 14 Feb 2019

If you read the story, it goes on to say the FPI formula puts a major emphasis on the QB position, and it can't weight the potential of Fields against any other QB who has never started a game.

Comment 05 Feb 2019

"He’s the first player from his high school, filled with rabid Buckeye fans, to commit to Ohio State since Elflein. But he isn’t worried about external expectations getting to him."

Alex Williams would like a word with you...

Me finding Fields' current case, based on wide speculation, shallow isn't downplaying "racism in a former Confederate state." Not hardly. We're not talking about whether he should have left Athens or not. We're talking about that incident being the sole reason he wanted to leave, thus making him eligible for a hardship waiver. That's the narrative I find shallow. And to speculate that the incident isn't even the primary defense is just that, speculation. Not unlike the assumptions I've supposedly made. Unless you're keyed into the situation more than most, of course.

Most importantly, I don't care what case ANY player makes to gain their immediate eligibility. If there is a path to getting it, every player should take it. My original comment was simply that any Buckeye fan who can't wait to see Fields be cleared to play this year (that's me) probably shouldn't belittle Tate's potential case.

Comment 16 Jan 2019

Let's not say too much if Tathan does seek immediate eligibility under the facade of an abrupt coaching change. I think most know, deep down, that the basis of Fields' request is pretty shallow, albeit effective. I can't fault any player for trying any and everything to get immediate eligibility. 

Comment 10 Jan 2019

Do some Buckeye fans really find value in slamming players in a public forum? Does the image of the fanbase ever cross their mind when they post? Are those the same ones who feel the need to directly weigh in during a high school kid's recruitment?

No matter what you think of how Tate has handled this whole situation, is it difficult to wish the kid luck somewhere else (whether you mean it or not) and move forward with the talent that will still be in Columbus?

Comment 10 Jan 2019

No, he was not devoid of talent overall. However, he was devoid of a quarterback that was anything more than a spectacular athlete. Also, don't forget how critical Urban was of the receiver group when he took over the next year. If you gave Ryan Day Tate Martell and the '11 receivers group for this entire season and asked him to go win 9 or 10 games, I'm not sure he would have been able to do it.

With that being said, I was not interested in Fickell coming back. And Ryan Day was absolutely the man to take over the program.
