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.

You are suggesting we are going to be worse than 2016. What we have more of in 2017 is experience so to think we're going to be worse is either complete and total pessimism or reverse psychology working. Which is it?

Mayfield will have to play lights out to beat us. Just dont see a young 1st year HC in his 2nd game ever as HC beating Urban. Could it happen? Yes. Will it? Fuck dat.

Alabama was won 4 of the last 8 national championships and will be ranked #1 going into next season. They have also signed the #1 recruiting class something like 7 straight years.  Like it or not, they are on another level from anyone else.  Not saying that will make any difference for Jones, but they are unquestionably the top program right now.  Clemson, OSU, and FSU in the next group, chasing. 

OSU isn't a 2nd tier program. OSU, Bama, Clemson and occasionally FSU are the only schools who have a LEGIT shot at winning the title every year. If you think OSU is 2nd tier then nobody can help you with your illness.

I don't think the NCAA will come down that hard on Ole Miss. MAYBE a 1-year bowl ban. Don't forget its an SEC school. They might not get anything at all other than a slap on the wrist. However, I think they throw Freeze under the bus and he gets a Show Cause penalty after everything comes to light. The hooker thing is just the tip of the sordid iceberg.

I could see Ole Miss making a play for Chip Kelly next year. You don't think Kelly would love to get SEC-caliber athletes to run his offense?

I've always thought a truly realistic feature for NCAA football would be losing players to suspension randomly for off-the-field issues. It would suck for the person playing their season but RL coaches deal with that every day and have to adjust. Like Urban did when we lost Noah Spence in 2014. That option will force the game player to be more strategic and recruit better.
