I find that hard to believe the talent is equal to ttun? Maybe before they transferred the classes might be equal. We won in 2002 with less talent than Miami and the same vs Alabama too.
There are 20 to many bowls and the way different organizations take over them each year I wonder do they really make a lot of money and is it worth it ? Being a fan and never going to a lower level bowl it can't be exciting and a lot to do at some of these venues to get me to attend one. I'd rather tail gate in Columbus and watch them play Akron. I heard on the morning 5 that at Indy a room was $900 at one place? I don't blame Wisconsin fans for not going to Indy. Like most people thought they got spanked once and most thought the same this time. Smart move stay home and save $$$ and go to the Rose Bowl. I think in the very near future Bowl games and even many big games like OSU and TTUN cost is getting out of control and people can't afford the trips and better off watching it at home. The next move when people stop going is packages or pay per view. Hell they make a killing with Boxing and Wrestling College and Pro football will be sooner than you think. I know the tun wasn't a sell out they had many empty seats. All those GM people out of work can't afford a $200 ticket and the other cost that goes with game day.
Not so sure if OSU didn't change a thing we would of lost. We got caught sleeping right before the half. I think to many were thinking Wisconsin was taking a knee. We gave them 7 there and it should of been only 14 at the half. To many were thinking like the fan base and the experts as another blow out. Mentally they woke up and saw the season slipping away from them. jmo
I hope Fields is near 100% at game time the brace seemed to bother him and second guessed himself to run a couple times I believe. I also am worried about Wade and a couple other db's who missed a lot of PT yesterday. They are going to be needed big time.
I agree with Smith but those of us watching at home after the game I noticed the most elated Buckeye fan in the nation. OSU's President seemed unhappy we won that game and to bad he got so much face time. Does this cat ever smile and to bad he wasn't pushed off the stage. I kind of wished he would of been brought up and asked his feelings about the game. He could of at least faked it he was happy.
No one game won't make any difference with him and he maybe a player who wants to be in the SEC and nothing will change his mind?
Agree but they still will be the best team we play this year to date. Not so sure how they can claim such a great defense when everyone plays different teams. Last year we had the no.2 offense compared to Oklahoma at no.1. Switch conferences and see how the numbers shake out. Either way throw everything out the window now none of that matters. Who plays the best moves on and wonder who Clemson wanted to play LSU or OSU?
That was a hard call and we lost the 1st seed when Wisconsin scored that td before half time. That should of never happened.
Coach's must see something in Steele that the recruiting gurus don't. Injury risk is my only worry and maybe why he wants to end recruiting too. Still I trust the staff knows more than me on this one. Then again injury held AJ Hawk down in the rankings too back in the day.
CB's maybe should be taken away from some of theses so called experts if they are just going to guess. Heck many of us can read the tea leaves and make a educated guess and are probably correct more times than not. There have been a couple in this class I thought would be in this class that many didn't think so much. That way maybe they will be a lot less free with their balls,
It is a coach needs to have 4 years or kids will think a new coach may take over in a couple years. It hurt Paterno even if they gave him a life time contract. At his age he couldn't promise a recruit the next day let alone years.
Barrett and Tebow better get in shape. Has he ever really had a true passing attack? Day was the man behind Haskins the qb read won't work in the NFL. My main worry if he goes back into coaching is who goes with him. I also won't buy into all his health issues here and at Florida. He also could go to one of the all time favorite coach's to one of the most dis liked if he took the job and brought Day and Hafley with him.
We should of been recruiting nationally long ago. A couple players here and there may have won us another NC or two.
Michigan and MSU battle for in state players and both get hurt because most years the talent is thin in Michigan. For that matter Ohio has been down too. You mention Ohio players going to Kentucky true but they are good not the cream of the crop and most are not even offered by OSU.
I think a surprise player simply because they find another gem along the line nearly every year. There might be more room at the Inn than we expect too.
Wiltfong good a CB's maybe after he changes his mind 3 or 4 times he gets it right.
Yes hard to predict were a young man will go they change their minds all the time. Many of these guys I pay no never mind simply because they jump to quick on a kid. They should and maybe they do keep score with these guys and maybe they would cool their jets and not act so fast on their CB's if their percentages were posted.
Not sure about 36 but some numbers are retired 22 and 45 I believe are a couple. I think they stopped retiring numbers also.
Old school here and remember when OSU could only go to the Rose Bowl and couldn't go two years in a row. Remember too when Freshman couldn't play so if you didn't go to the Rose Bowl in your Sophomore year you would only go to 1 bowl total your entire career at OSU max. Bowls had more of a meaning and was a reward for having a nice year. You also back in the day had only 7 to 10 bowls total and it was special to make a bowl. Today teams go to bowls for being above 50% and can go every year. Kind of like going to the county fair you been there once no big deal to keep going other than the live stock same old cotton candy and pop corn in the same stand and location. Long story short bowl games are watered down big deal plus no one goes to most of them and not sure how some make any money.
Probably but my fault for not ever checking this out. Sorry if I was short with anyone but thanks for leading in in the right direction. Again sorry my bad GO BUCKS
I wish we did too because I didn't read anything here about this.
White is a legacy recruit he can't leave. He also was a wild card last year who made some great plays but also bone head plays in the Maryland game. We as fans must understand when a coach is asked a question about a player they will never ever throw him under the bus. Well since we are bring up names of transfer how about Wray has he played a down this year?
This could be Massillon's first state title since they went to a playoff system. I love the Massillon history and fan base but as a Warren Harding fan they were the Notre Dame of Ohio high school football. Always rated at the top by the voters before every season and may have won some titles they wouldn't of if there was a playoff much like ND. They also were the SEC of Ohio they cheated like Hell recruiting players and got busted a time or two.
Pay per view it won't be long that's how we will be watching the Buckeyes but still cheaper than $200 a pop.
