Obviously the last few years the Penn St. game has been really rough. That said, OSU clearly has more talent than State Penn. I think OSU would have to play their worst game of the season and they would have to play over their heads to take the game. 

Comment 14 Nov 2019

I think the starters, especially Fields, should play no more than one quarter of the game and then get them the heck out of the game. Don't need anyone getting hurt now.

 Ironically, at the start of the season I hated having PSU and TTUN back to back. I was thinking it would be good to have an easy game like Rutgers the week before TTUN. Now, due to Chase having to miss this weekend, thankfully it is Rutgers and the schedule lines up the way it does. (We also have to play PSU &TTUN at the end of '21 as well. 

Comment 10 Nov 2019

I would still take the one year last year from Haskins and the two (maybe three) years from Fields over the two years of Burrow.

Comment 10 Nov 2019

Urban also had a great hire with Kerry Combs.

Bottom line is as much as I loved and still love Jim Tressel, Urban Meyer left OSU in much better shape (including having Day in place), than Tressel left OSU when he had to suddenly leave in May, 2011.

My first preference of course is that Cooper plays again this year and helps lead us to the NC. But, if he cannot, it would be great to have him back again next year. If that means one less recruit for 2020, so be it. Cooper is a very high character guy who would be a captain next year and be the veteran presence that is very important w/ some new starters coming in on the defensive side of the ball...

Comment 09 Nov 2019

I would have preferred a noon game to get OSU back home that much sooner to prepare for Penn St. I know it only the difference of 3 and a half hours, but still, a noon game gets them home sooner....

Comment 09 Nov 2019

Howard can't hide his utter hate for Ohio State. The former OSU players on TV all go the other way and are tough on OSU. Desmond on the other hand shows nothing but love for TTUN.

   Even worse than his bias against OSU is Howard's horrible cackling he does whenever he laughs. I can't stand that!

Comment 09 Nov 2019

As others have said, he should not by playing QB. Damn, he is rated, what, # 1 or #2 in entire nation. He is never ever going to play QB at OSU. If his idiot high school coach does not agree to only use him on defense, I hope he leaves and transfers to another high school that will leave him on the D line where he belongs. I hated the idea of him playing QB from the moment I heard it. 

Comment 08 Nov 2019

I was thinking in contrast, the Chase Young issue is so much less severe, that could help us and hopefully Chase just misses the one game. I will say that probably ended Young's changes of winning the heisman. 

Comment 03 Nov 2019

I really wanted to go to the opening night and get the VIP package to have the meet and greet with Urban, but I live in Massachusetts and that is a big trip especially on a Thursday. 

Did any of you get the VIP for opening night, and if so, what was it like and how long did you get w/ Urban? 

Comment 20 Oct 2019

That is such a piss-ant "violation." What total BS. Because Herbie and Eddie George happened to be on campus that weekend for Gameday we lose out on an absolute stud?? What the hell? I guarantee you at any campus, on any recruiting weekend, way worse goes on. Down in SEC country, the bag man does not pose for pictures w/ recruits, but it is way worse of a violation and they never get caught.

  IMO, I think OSU way over-reacted. I don't think even the NCAA would have said that we had to no longer recruit him as a punishment. Not only did we not get him, but he went to PSU, who is probably are toughest game this year, and maybe next year as well. With Chase Young likely gone after this year, Parsons would have been our centerpiece on the D-line next year. 

Comment 19 Oct 2019

The Parsons thing was a joke as I recall. Didn't Eddie George say hi to Parsons and maybe Herbie as well and that was enough to screw as up as a potential NCAA violation? Man, imagine how much better Parsons would make this defense which is already damn good. Also, Parsons is only in his second year, so he will be back next year at PSU...

Comment 19 Oct 2019

I was surprised Urban went as far as he did in his comments. Sounds like he is interested. If he did coach in the NFL, how do we know he would not take some of the support staff that he brought to OSU? NFL teams have strength & conditioning guys too, and maybe NFL teams do not need director of recruiting guys, but Urban can always find a position for someone he works well with and that he values. 

  If you saw Urban last week on the BTN, he was breaking down plays on the "Urban analysis" and as he was doing it, he said something like "man, I love this..." Made me think he might be back, despite the health concerns of his cyst and likely would be against the wishes of his family, especially Shelly. 

   I think if Urban came back to either college or went to the NFL and raided some of Day's staff, (even though Urban brought these guys to OSU in the first place), it would really hurt how Urban is thought of long-term by Buckeye Nation. 

Comment 22 Sep 2019

I think Gee was hired twice for his ability to raise funds, not for his comments that gave the school a black eye like the comment about the people at Notre Dame raising holy hell during the week, little sisters of the poor, etc.

 I can tell you that I remember very clearly that the national media absolutely did jump on Gee's stupid remark and said that this is the problem at a school like OSU where football is king and even the president of the university was afraid of the football coach. In other words, Gee absolutely poured gasoline on the fire instead of water.

 I don't think that it was a given that Tressel "lied" to the NCAA. Perhaps Tressel did not think that a player that got a free tat or $ for selling his own property would make that player ineligible. It is the equivalent of j-walking, I will say if the Sandusky story had happened prior to tat-gate, instead of the other way around, the NCAA does not hammer OSU nearly as severe. 

Comment 22 Sep 2019

I think the Gee quip  about "I just hope he does not fire me" was just one of MANY stupid, inane comments Gee made whenever he spoke about the sports team like when he said that the tie in the Game in '92 was OSU's biggest "victory." I am convinced to this day if when asked if he was going to fire Tressel, Gee has said something else like "we take any possible NCAA rule violations very seriously. We will work diligently with the NCAA to get to the bottom of this and then take appropriate action," that the media would have laid off, and Tressel could have stayed on.

I think a lot of people in the press kind of took Gee at his word, that the football coach was running the university, and that led to even more pressure to force Tressel out. 

Comment 20 Sep 2019

I am glad that Gene is the AD and he has done a great job. Other than not taking the bowl ban after the 2011 season, my only other criticism would be that he was not great at putting out the fires that become the tattoo gate or ZS mess. Both of those situations were not his fault, but I thought he was too passive in both. I blame Gordon Gee's comment "I just hope he (Tressel) does not fire me" for really igniting the media pressure that caused us to lose Jim Tressel. I do wonder if Gene could have had Urban better prepared for Big Ten media day 2018 to defuse the ZS situation.
