Time for the Coach Holtmann signature win like Thad had against the Illini. Who is today’s Matt Sylvester?
My wife and I are both OSU grads from the 80's. Obviously we have developed a healthy hate for Michigan.
Both of our kids are now undergrads in Columbus and being students they have developed some of this but I would agree that they don't get it like those of us who were students during the Cooper years.
That said, they do occasionally end a statement with "and Michigan still sucks!"
A friend of mine is the parent of a Michigan player and he told me he had lots of bad language directed his way last year in Ohio Stadium. Nothing thrown at him as far as I know. There are idiots in every fan base.
I think the plan is to increase prices until they stop being able to sell them all. Maybe this will give them that feedback.
Go Bucks! Enough said.
I agree after watching last night. You have got to locate the ball with McSorley. He just throws those deep balls up for grabs and lets the receivers find them and go get them.
I don't know if I will ever enjoy watching any Buckeye more than Craft. I loved this game today and look forward to tomorrow.
I totally agree, but these guys are watching superstars in the NBA team up to make it as easy as possible to win. That is the new attitude that they are taking in college as well.
I saw them play the semi against Ball State for my first men's VB match. Very impressed with the athleticism in this sport. Great win against a Ball State team that didn't quit when they got down early.
Shouldn't it be called "squirreling"?
I agree that a few key plays could have made a difference for this team. What this shows more than anything is the lack of leadership on the floor at crunch time. They need that one guy who could step up and get the guys where they are supposed to be when things break down. The last play in the home Nebraska loss is a good example of this. I wonder how many times this year I have wished for a jump shot challenged Aaron Craft on the floor in those situations just for his leadership skills.
Torrance Gibson may be back. That could certainly be an addition that would help at this position.
Not to rain on the parade here but I have a little perspective on dot numbers for OSU students. My nephew and son both graduated in the class of 2015 and applied to OSU. During the application process you are assigned your dot number with your last name and the order in which they processed things for all the students with the same last name over the years. My nephew did not go to OSU his freshman year and my son did. My nephew transferred in his sophomore year (this year) and has a lower dot number than my son based upon his application timing before his freshman year. That means that the dot number is assigned before you are officially enrolled as a student. Okudah may have his only based upon the application process and not be planning to attend. He could just be listed as an accepted student at this point.
Remember that this could be the ESPN Gameday game this year. If that is the case, then the students will start gathering on Friday night in the oval this year. I know a lot of them camped out starting late Friday night for the MSU game last year even with the weather being poor.
Anyone else think that Jent was brought back to be the next head coach in training?
Pretty much my reaction, too.
I have said that this was a good idea for months. Wow, I can't believe it actually happened.
There is a very strong sense of state pride in NJ in everything from jersey tomatoes to Bruce Springsteen. If they can tap into those feelings, then they are on the right track.
In my opinion, Harbaugh had to come in as coach and treat it like a program that has never had a history of winning. Michigan has to have publicity stunts and make news to get into the conversation for the kids that they are recruiting. These kids don't remember when Michigan was consistently good. My kids are in school at OSU and have no memory of Michigan being a threat to OSU at all.
Best was 1985 vs Iowa and Chuck Long. Spielman and Pepper Johnson were awesome.
Worst was in 2011 vs Michigan State at home in a 10 to 7 loss. No offense the entire game until the end when Bauserman (yes Joe Bauserman) threw a TD pass.
Going 2 and 1 in the final 3 would put them at 12 and 6 in the regular Big 10 season and they should at least be in the conversation for the bubble.
It doesn't matter who the Cavs have as a coach. If the ball doesn't move and everyone just stands and watches Lebron dribble down the shot clock, they won't ever have a consistent enough offense to win it all.
I would say LSU. Always go with the home team.
Just a matter of time
Almost all of my favorites have been mentioned but I didn't see Dazed & Confused. Can't not watch it when I surf on to it.
