The only point of contention I have is that I don’t know that I agree with Michigan being the better team on paper. Justin Fields is just that at this point: one of the best in the country on paper. I think our recent recruiting wins and talent level would point in our favor, especially given your defensive departures to the league. But how that all comes together under Coach Day has yet to be seen. 

I think you may be right on the money with your win loss prediction though, but at PSU will be a tough one in a white out and Notre Dame always presents a challenge for y’all. Wisconsin’s quarterback situation will likely be the deciding factor in that one. If they stick with the veteran, I like your chances. But if the freshman (Mertz) is as advertised then this game could be his coming out party. 

Curious- what’s your “rational UM fan” prediction for the Buckeyes this year?

I pitched against Justin Masterson in high school when he played for Beavercreek High School and had a terrible three pitch at-bat against Keith Weiser when he played for the Hamilton Heat in the summer before he headed to Miami (OH) and became a second (or maybe third) round pick by the Colorado Rockies.

Oh, and the cell phone video of Tommy Togiai  committing to Urban and LJ in his family's living room and the genuine emotion and excitement that went with it was really cool, too.

I think the 12-Star Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in 2016 was my favorite day.  Adding Haskins, Keandre Jones, and Bin Victor on the same day was so huge!  I was so bummed when we accepted Tristan Wallace's commitment at QB and was starting to think Victor was going to stay south - so that day was very refreshing!

Vonn Bell is my favorite individual commitment because I really didn't know what to expect.  Darnay Holmes was <this close> to joining that list. 
With Hilliard/Cornell, NPF, and Zach Harrison I actually just felt very confident going into their announcements (although I admittedly wasn't confident throughout the duration of those recruitments).

Birm was also pretty convinced we were getting Christian Kirk a few years back - which would’ve been nice, by the way. 

I feel like he has one of those every year where he is perhaps a bit over confident.

Tcm isn't talking about who they play on their schedule, but the timing of when they play certain perceived weaker teams.  Not saying I agree with the statement that the NFL wants the Browns in the playoffs, but with those four very winnable games coming at the end it certainly sets them up for a solid finish.

Name checks out.

Ya know, realists and pessimists are often really hard to differentiate. Are you sure you aren’t actually BuckeyePessimist13?

At this point I just hope Alabama wins so this series doesn’t have to go the full five games. Alabama wins and takes it 3-1. Then we finally get to move on to literally anything else. 

Thats how this works, right?

When I was a kid I had a babysitter who would watch cartoons with me and whenever something impractical would happen (see also: entire show, because it was a cartoon and make believe) she would make comments like, "Oh yeah, right, like that could ever happen" or "That is not realistic at all!".  Even at the time, six or seven year old me would sit there and think, "No f*cking kidding, Vada, this is a fictional television show for kids that was drawn by somebody who had an imagination."  

I felt this was a relevant follow-up comment here.

Sounds borderline masochistic.  The pain of losing to the Buckeyes once every year isn't enough, so he would go lose to the NFL version of the Buckeyes twice each year?  Makes sense.

Comment 18 Dec 2018

That sounds painful..

But to actually add to the conversation, I was wondering the same.  Were the rumors true that he told the Ohio State staff that they were out and not to come for the visit because it was down to Alabama or Oklahoma?  If so, I doubt he changes it up a week later and signs with Ohio State.  If that was false and the rumblings that Alabama is being shady with wanting Battle to wait to sign until Dax is in are true, then we may have a a puncher's chance!

Honestly, keeping the current class together (Nester and Battle included) and adding Harrison would be quite the win for Day and company.  Fields would be the icing!
