How easy is it to buy a black OSU shirt? Especially when you don’t live in Columbus. 

Is this a serious question?   There are too many online options to mention, including this site.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

I would disagree with that. Even the student section didn't do a good job of wearing black.

Fox does have a 3:30 window available that weekend, but they have been putting their biggest game of the week on at noon this season.

FWIW...While it is true that Roby practiced, it was, per this report by Ari Wasserman on January 4, 2014, "off to the side with a sleeve over his knee". And, Urban announced two days before the game that Roby was not playing.

It seems that with time some things have been forgotten.

Roby was originally supposed to talk to the media early in the week, but he was held out as he continued to rehab. During Ohio State's open Orange Bowl practices, Roby was seen working off to the side with a sleeve over his knee. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said two days before the game that Roby wasn't healthy enough to play

Lol. I keep forgetting this now a P. C. world!

At what point was it, again, that it was acceptable for a coach to say "Fuck you!" at a press conference?

Comment 12 Jul 2019

It was infuriating having to hear it everyday here.

I have to ask, why did you "have" to listen to it? 

Turn it off, or don't turn it on.

FWIW....Urban had a place in Florida, a lake house, the entire time he was coaching at Ohio State. Florida homes do not disqualify him from coaching, again.

In 2002, when Danny Weurffel and Shane Matthews were on the Redskins, they wore 7 and 9, respectively, during mini camps and the s*#t storm that errupted in the DC area was ridiculous.  Weurffel eventually changed to 17 and Matthews to 6.

Shane Matthews even contacted Sonny Jurgensen and got his okay to wear 9, and Theismann told Weurffel to wear 7, after attending a mini camp.

Steve Spurrier and the Redskins eventually asked them to change numbers.

The whole thing is kind of ridiculous. Either retire the number or issue it.  Kissing the ring of Joe Theismann in order to wear 7 is a bit much.

One thing that’s abundantly clear in my opinion, urban did him wrong. He talks about “some coach” talking shit about him to nfl scouts and that’s why he didn’t go pro after the NC.

What Cardale construes as "talking shit about him", could just be an honest assessment from the coach that Cardale disagrees with, or that he is unable to accept.

I have a feeling that they will not just use the coaching change, but also the circumstances surrounding it.  They will likely say that Ohio State and Meyer knew that Meyer was dealing with health issues, but the extent of them, and potential impact, were not made clear to Tate when he was being recruited. That is, had Tate known Meyer was having health issues and that he would not be there for his full 4/5 years, he would not have come to Ohio State.  As well, I believe Zach Smith was the lead recruiter for Gorman, if I recall correctly, so I anticipate Tate's attorney mentioning the OSU investigation regarding that matter, Smith's firing, and Meyer's suspension.  

Comment 27 Nov 2018

Perhaps we just care more? Not sure, but not using the letter "M" during Michigan week, referring to them as TTUN or TSUN, our coaches knowing how many days until the next edition of "The Game". Do they do anything like that?

They refer to Ohio State as 'Ohio'. They smash buckeye nuts with a hammer on Bo Schembechler's grave. They had countdown clocks in their facility prior to Harbaugh's arrival, and he removed. them.

Comment 13 Nov 2018

FWIW, I've been to both games at Maryland and had no issues with parking, nor getting in to the stadium. I did not find the experience any different, worse or better, than any other stadium I've been to.

This is the alternate uniform with the sublimated houndstooth pattern in the numbers and on the helmet stripe.
