Track and field, basketball, swimming, team handball, water polo, cycling on the short track is fun to watch.

I agree but I had to be a homer there since he helped OSU win a title. 

In reality I'd have to go with these guys in any order:

Jim Tressel, Nick Saban, Bo, Pete Carroll, Lou Holtz because all have either won national championships, Super Bowl titles and/or are in the College football hall of fame.

When you really sit back and think about it there have been some great coaches go through the Horseshoe as assistants. Look at the national championships won  and in carroll's case both National titles and Super Bowl championship.

I think I heard Steve Harvey in an interview say he is a huge Buckeye fan and that his daughter attends Ohio State or has a degree from The Ohio State University

Stupid people do stupid things. The Internet forums like 11W, twitter, and others can be a wonderful thing but also can let the crazies out. People will type out things that they would never say to people in person. It happens in high schools, colleges, and the pros. I refuse to even knowledge social media during OSU games this year so I can think before I speak. I get upset at individual players but I'm a coach and teacher and am smart enough not to call them out. Turnovers by a number of players are a problem, penalties are a problem being committed by multiple players, and play calling has not been what an untrained eye like myself and others have thought it would be like. Buckeye Nation, the world is not ending we are undefeated. Go Bucks!!!

I've been trying to believe in my head that they are saving Zeke's body for games where he is needed. This is a tough game and bodies get banged up and it's good to take it easy on him until need be.

I agree, the older I get the more I hate seeing these types of things for any kid. Obviously I can't stand that school up there and really can't stand that team and coaching staff but I want to see kids get a degree. Hopefully this will still happen. Good luck to him getting this straightened out and as always Go Bucks.

Loved it, made me want to jump on 11W and comment during the game but I was able to hold off. Trying something new this season where I stay off social media during games until they finish.

Did he handle his departure well from OSU? No. Is he an adult? Yes but only probably 19-20 years old. We all do,and say things in the heat of the moment that we'd probably like to take back if we could. Hopefully he gets it figured out and straightens things out. Not sure if football is in his future, probably 1AA if it is. I'm not one to say once a Buckeye always a Buckeye when they choose to leave but I do wish him well.
