He should get a “Just For Men” stipend - that black hair of his will become increasingly gray starting in September.
If his deal is 5 years, $25MM, that ought to keep most of the NFL wolves away, at least for a while.
His expression when asked, and the delay in responding are outstanding. You can see him thinking “...crap, how do I answer this...”.
I didn’t find his reply cocky or disrespectful. Every player on either team should fee the way he feels about believing in his teammates and having confidence you’ll win. Believing the opposite seals your fate.
He deserves a legit interview. Not sure if he has prepared himself to take the reigns in Columbus, but the man has earned a look.
I want Urban to be at OSU forever. But the past 5 months would have worn even the best of us right down to the nub.
The media presumes your guilt in a fabricated scandal, and your leadership stands silent while your name and reputation are dragged through the mud. Then you come back to work and are unable to “fix” these utterly baffling and recurring mistakes by your team, maybe because your coaches don’t play well in the sandbox together. Oh, and you have a brain cyst causing you excruciating pain.
Can’t say I would be surprised if the man needs to push the pause button and get himself right.
If he does, the next head coach at Ohio State had better be Matt Campbell or someone similar. Ryan Day has “I’ll bolt for the NFL” written all over him.
First team to 45 wins.
OSU 45, ttun 42.
Drop 7 or 8 to take away chunk plays, make OSU beat you with the run slowly and methodically.
I was born in ‘68, and this is my all-time fave Buckeye uniform. Please bring it back, even if for one game per season.
I am excited to see what both quarterbacks can do. Differently talented but both supremely so.
I like this Campbell guy. Hope he doesn’t end up replacing the unique individual at that school up north.
Going with my Dad. Go Bucks!
Would love to attend, but we’re not arriving until Saturday afternoon.
Anybody have plans for a pre-game gathering?
In my humble opinion, you don’t get in if you don’t win your conference. Not with only 4 teams.
Expand it to 6, with the winners of the 5 power conferences and one at large from outside the P5.
Outlaw “rematches” between conference rivals, as it only benefits the team that lost the first time by goving them another chance on a bigger stage. If an OSU/OU type of rematch happens in the CFP because both won their respective conference, okay - they get a bump for playing “real” nonconf games.
Just “Squeeze the cheese” this Saturday and let the chips fall where they may. Absolutely no shame in vanquishing your rival - and your next three rivals (PSU, MSU, Wisc) and winning the B1G.
What year was it that some of our own idiot fand pelted their players with Buckeyes after the game?
Just saying, every team has fringe a-hole fans.
By the warriors in white
Yeah, long live the King
Good for him! No shame in doing your thing in the CFL.
23-20 OSU. GO BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!
Only three more days
‘Til the Wolves of November
Maul the wolverines
For me, it all boils down to the sheer arrogance of their fans and blue-blood alumni. Nose in the air, uppity BS. I can say that because I’ve lived not far from AA for the past 20 years (long story), and it never ceases to amaze.
The program and history is worthy of a degree of respect but not veneration like they all believe
Can’t even have a respectable, objective conversation with any of them (though I have tried many times). Bastards.
Ttun seems seems to have a legit D, but not a lot of depth there. It will be critical to estabish a run game against them and eventually wear them down and put them away by mid Q4.
Offensively, O’Korn will make plays with his legs - he is respectable at that if not a great passer. It will be important for our D to maintain discipline when plays break down.
If we protect the ball, button up their special teams return game, and establish the run? OSU 33 ttun 17.
My 2 cents:
- 5 power conference winners and 1 at-large from outside the power 5
- Must win conference to gain entry to CFP (no conf runners-up or conf champ game losers; conf “rematches” reward the losing team by giving them a do-over on a bigger stage with higher stakes)
- Nonconference scheduling must include two games vs power 5 teams. Imagine the excitement and dollars generated by seeing OSU/USC or ND/Bama or OU/FSU type of games every year.
