I look at this in the exact same vein as pay the football staff top dollar. If we want to compete in March then we have to pay top dollar for our assistants.
When does the team start camp?
Are the Buckeyes completely out on Dom Penn now that Meechie Johnson is in the fold?
Fuck you, Shorsey.
Ty Howard. Very underrated CB that got very little love because he played across from Shawn Springs, who was a legend.
Sad to see him go. Wonder if it has anything to do with him not getting the open assistant spot earlier this year.
What time is Day supposed to have his press conference?
These ranking just signify the beginning of the best time of the year and I could not be any more pumped!
Where would you suggest people go when coming to OSU for the first time? Not that I disagree with your point about the Varsity Club or Berkey Creamery in HV.
Being from Dayton, I'm glad to see Day recruiting southwest Ohio the way he has. That being said I wish he would get in to the Gem city and grab a few kids!
I feel like a reasonable expectation for this season is a top five finish in the B1G and making it through the first weekend of the tournament. Anything else would be gravy. I'm not crazed enough to think that this team is going to win the Big Ten and make the Final Four.
As a history major these are my favorite types of articles. Great read, Chris!
I wonder who Holtmann will replace him with? Scoonie seems like the easy answer.
Sounds like the same kind of position that Tyler Moeller played in 2011, Jermale Hines in 2008, 09, Will Allen played something similar in 2002. Just a bigger DB have to have on th field in the nickel and other various sub packages.
Can't wait for this one. Fiance is a UC alum and I'm an OSU alum... should be interesting!
Any idea who Gene Smith is considering hiring as his replacement?
Might be my favorite game day poster yet!
Stanford, Ohio State, FSU, Bama
Ohio State over Florida State
This man was from Dayton.
My allergies started bothering me too... weird.
Excellent read per usual, Ramzy. The first time I remember College football was the 1995 Notre Dame game. My parents were split and my dad was born and raised in Dayton so I would visit during the summers. I was visiting randomly during that specific game and I remember my dad and uncle yelling at the tv, that passion is what piqued my interest in the Buckeyes. My mother lived in Georgia which is where I went to middle and high school, and in Georgia college football is obviously King. I became more passionate about the Buckeyes during those years just because my friends were such big UGA fans and I wanted to stick it to them as much as I could. I totally agree with you about college football being a lot about where you're living, if I hadn't been brought up in these two places I probably wouldn't be nearly as big a college football fan as I am now.
I joined the signed up for the site on the first day that it became available in 2010. I remember stumbling upon the site for the first time in 2006, while I was a high schooler. I have been a regular reader ever since then. Thanks for the last ten years, everyone!
