MEMBER SINCE   November 02, 2012

Lifelong Ohio State fan. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I now live in Florida but O-H-I-O is home. I was raised on my grandfather's Scioto County farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd like to be treated; 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest childhood memories is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas when I was 5 while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I hate TTUN. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Mark May sucks. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

If Fields is lighting it up Ryan Day isn't going to broadcast it because he wants Fields to keep a level head about things. Same reason Urban always downplayed things. 

If Fields is stinking it up Day isnt going to broadcast it because he knows it will be a distraction to the team when the media and fans start bitching at him even before the season starts.

Again, I have a very difficult time imagining Ryan Day knowingly brought a mediocre QB into our program to be the starter. Being that Fields and Haskins had previously trained together it means Day has been evaluating Fields for at least a year now. Now all of a sudden he sucks? I dont think so.

Those ugly defensive stats remind me of the 2013 team that had a starting DL of Joey Bosa, Adolphus Washington, Michael Bennett, and Noah Spence with Ryan Shazier at LB and Bradley Roby at DB and we still had issues stopping people. We changed the scheme the following year and win a national title. Just shows what a difference good coaching can make. The kids are out there making the plays but they got to be in the right position to do so.

Whichever team puts the best defense on the field will be in the driver's seat. With Scott Frost and Jeff Brohm's offenses in that division if the rest of the division cannot stop those passing attacks they can forget about beating them. WIsconsin historically has always had issues defending spread teams so if they can solve that they should be the favorite. That Nov. 16 Wisconsin-Nebraska will likely be for the all the marbles in that division.

As much as I loathe TTUN and their Insane Clown Coach, I wouldn't wish injuries or debilitating medical conditions on any of them. Won't root for them to win but wont be happy if their guys arent playing because they can't.

I predicted a dominant D last year. Not going to predict anything this year other than hoping we stop giving up big plays and hoping our LBs stop looking like crap. Our offense wont be as high octane to start the season so the D has to perform.

The defensive improvement we made from 2013 to 2014 was what allowed us to be in a position to win a national title. We only moved up 28 spots then. We move up 28 spots this year we're still 43rd which would have gotten us in the CFP last year. We dont need a Top 25 D. Inside the Top 50 is enough I think. At least to stop the perception our defense is a disaster.

The second the contact is taken out of the games, the real games, the sport is dead. I could definitely see a future where teams no longer have contact during practice, its already happening. But take away the contact for games and its goodbye football.

"Just when I thought I was out (of the offseason), LCT pulls us back in!" (in Michael Corleone voice).

jk, just using it as an excuse to quote the Godfather for no apparent reason.

With Lane Kiffin and FAU running precisely the style offense that gave us the biggest problems last year it's good we open with them. At least we will know right away if the D is truly fixed. (Crosses fingers and closes eyes, please be fixed, please be fixed.)

I'm also extremely grateful we don't have to face a service academy's triple option right at the time we're breaking in a new defense. Have fun with that TTUN.
