After leaving the grueling life of a rodeo clown, I ventured back to the land of Ohio, where I re-planted my flag, grew a thriving business, and then joined a fast growing local publishing firm. I have a healthy respect for bulls.

The article doesn't mention it, but isn't there a real possibility that a run to the Super Bowl might keep Coombs in Nashville, even if the current DC doesn't retire? He may decide he's not interested in leaving a good situation.

Just looked it up, it does look like the move back to OSU would come with a significant salary increase, assuming he doesn't get offered a pay raise and/or a promotion to DC.

FYI, tracking the start of a millennium is NOT the same as tracking the start of a decade.


It all comes down to how we talk about time spans. With few exceptions, we usually think about centuries and millennia as numbered entities, counted up from year AD 1, such as “the 21st century” or “the third millennium.”

Decades, however, are commonly categorized based on the year numbers. For example, we say “the eighties” instead of “the 199th decade.” Similarly, the upcoming decade is technically the 203rd decade, but we call it “the twenties.” According to this common definition, decades generally encompass the time span from years ending with 0 to years ending with 9, such as 2020 – 2029.

a defense that allows 1) a 6'6 230 lb QB to run 60+ yards for a TD virtually untouched and 2) a 4 play 94 yard drive in crunch time

And who was missing from the field on those plays? Oh yeah, the guy who got ejected for a bogus targeting call.

Clemson - 0 pts before Wade's ejection, 29 pts after. These are facts. The Game showed us how valuable Wade was to our defense. Live, in real time, the refs RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF THE PLAY did not see targeting.

And that's without discussing the horse shit call that LITERALLY took 7 pts off the board in a 6 pt loss.

"the lack of big time recruits in the last couple years"...?

2018 class had Taron Vincent, Tyreke Johnson, Tyreke Smith, Tommy Togiai, Teradja Mitchell, Josh Proctor, Tyler Friday, Dallas Gant, K'Vaughan Pope, Javontae Jean-Baptiste, Sevyn Banks... (all high 4 star, top 300 guys - and Vincent and Tyreke Johnson were 5 star)

2019 class had Zach Harrison (5 star), Cade Stover, and Ronnie Hickman (this was a much smaller class, but these guys were all top 300 guys as well)

2020 class has Lathan Ransom, Cody Simon, Court Williams, Jacolbe Cowan, Darrion Henry, Ryan Watts, Lejond Cavazos...

Again, these are all top 300 guys, with the majority of them being top 200. I don't think talent is something we lack going forward.

+1 Brewster!

Stars in the making: Browning and Werner, Harrison and Tyreke Smith on the Dline... and I expect Cameron Brown and Sevyn Banks to take the customary steps up the ladder that our DBs have been known for over the past 20+ years.

The key to all of this may come down to whether Josh Proctor becomes the guy we need at safety. 

Comment 04 Jan 2020

I think with him locking down the opponent's top WR, we'll see Brown, Banks, and Riep (and the guys behind them) grow even more with another year of seeing a lockdown corner do his thing every day in practice, in the weight room... and come game time.

This is HUGE in so many ways!!

Nobody said they were ok with 22 turnovers in one game, what we said was that 22 is an anomaly and is way higher than their average, Which is fact.

We also pointed out the fallacy that great teams don't turn the ball over that much. Young, talented teams DO tend to turn the ball over more, and that's what OSU has this year, as well as the Kentuckys, Dukes, Louisvilles, and Kansases of the world (who recruit more 5 stars and tend to have more roster turnover).

Comment 29 Dec 2019

Young is a lock to go as he'll be a top 3 pick. Okudah is also pretty much a lock to be a first-rounder.

But Dobbins would likely get a 2nd or 3rd round grade - not because people are stupid or not seeing his talent but because 1st round RBs are such a rarety. Wade is not a lock to be 1st round material, so I think there's a chance either or both of those guys could come back.

That's not exactly an accurate assessment. When you look at team stats for all of college bball, ND (9-4) leads the nation w/an average of 9.7 TOs/game, followed by OK (8-3), ND State (8-5) and Liberty (14-1). Those teams are far from the top of college bballs rankings. For further reference, Gonzaga is ranked #1 and averages 11 TOs/game. Louisville is #3 and they average 12.4 TOs/game.

Talented, young teams tend to turn the ball over at higher rates than average. OSU averages 13 TOs/game (which puts the Bucks at #115, out of 353 teams). As the poster said, one game is not a trend. 22 is WAY above their average.
