I did not see this game, but I did sit through Tampa Bay and Seattle game. I do realize that the players are still going through growing pains as they come together as a team. Still most of the players have played on an NFL team even if it was on a scout team. I had two quick impressions. One there is no excuse for both QB's missing wide open receivers. Second, the offensive line play on both teams was so bad that 
Betty White as a linebacker could have walked through and pressured the running backs and qb's. Still, some of the rule changes are interesting such as the red hat official, the punting rules and the extra point rules after a TD.

Being a college football official is a part time job. Once an official has lost his integrity, the league supervisor no longer owes any loyalty to the official but to the reputation of the conference and the insistence of fair play and objectivity. If I were the supervisor of officials, I would have no problem in releasing those responsible for an  obvious bias  determining the outcome of the game. But then this is SEC and I will be shocked if the league takes any steps or makes any comment.

Gene Smith has stated that the two year commitment is not in any contract for assistants. So my question is: does any Div 1 school have a term of years in its contract for assistant coaches?  On a side note, this is not an unusual problem for OSU. Did not Woody take pride in the number of his assistants that went on to greater things?

I, too, have moved on: beat Clemson. But one last comment on the committee's final decision. While I heard many times that LSU was more dominate in their championship game than what the Buckeyes were, I heard nothing that maybe Wisconsin played harder for their championship than Georgia did in theirs. Every committee member failed in their duty if they based the seeding on one game.

Comment 06 Dec 2019

Hurts them no more than the Buckeyes having to compete for recruits with Notre Dame, MSU, UM, Pitt, PSU. All these teams are in close proximity and for the most part going after the same high school stars in the midwest. 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

I do not pay any attention to what traditions ttun has regarding the rivalry, The Buckeyes have the gold pants, the countdown clock, that song (don't give a damn for the whole state of ...). Since there has been talk about the Buckeyes taking the rivalry more seriously than ttun, besides their arrogance and their before the forward pass era victories, what traditions do they have?

Comment 02 Dec 2019

Woodson indicated that the rivalry is a "way of life" for the Buckeyes but not for Michigan as they need to get back to it. But the DL player indicated that they knew every play that OSU runs. Seems to me that they prepared for the game since their loss in 2018. When players and coaches spend 12 months preparing for one team, that is a way of life.

i don't buy the idea that -ichgan doesn't take it seriously. When Bo was first hired at TTUN, his famous line to his assistants was" We were hired for one thing only and that is to beat Ohio State" . Harbaugh, being a former qb for that team knows the rivalry because he lived it. And There is no doubt in my mine that when he was hired he was given three mandates: number one, beat OSU, number two win the Big Ten, number three win a NC. And I remember Harbaugh saying at the beginning of this season that he was going to devote time in each practice preparing for the Buckeyes. When a team loses, it is too easy to say that they did not take the game seriously. 

Comment 10 Nov 2019

Not sure where to rank any Big Ten team other than the Buckeyes who have dominated everyone. Yes Minnesota is undefeated, but the West teams all seem to have many flaws. PSU has  looked good but they now have a loss and could have two other ones if they had lost close games against Pitt and Mich. Seems to me that they have some issues. Mich has a couple of losses. Their DC has stated that Mich is just now hitting their stride. My response to that is that Buckeyes are also just hitting their stride. Scary. 

Comment 06 Nov 2019

Sorry but what the heck did these players and coaches do during the preseason practices? This is about as ugly of 20 minutes of basket ball  as I have seen from a Buckeye team. No chemistry on this team at all. 

Comment 06 Nov 2019

Weekly rankings were only important prior to 1998 and the BCS era as it was the pollsters who were the ones who determined who the national champion was going to be. Since then, the only poll that matters is the last one. The rest during the season is only to give a 7 day bragging right to certain fans. I will get excited only after the last league championship game is played and the only poll that matters will be the last one two days later. Win and the Bucks are in, lose and let the arguments begin.

Comment 08 Oct 2019

I am not a proponent of a team "peaking too early" I believe that players and coaches can become complacent. As Woody use to say: "If you are not improving, you are getting worse".

Comment 14 Sep 2019

Did not Day say in an earlier interview that he was going to work with the offense and let the defensive coaches do their thing? With all the new defensive coaches, I think they have taken pride in the trust that Day has put in them and they have run with it. Looks like there are no egos in that group and they have really made the players jell as one heck of a cohesive unit. (good lord can those players fly.)

Comment 14 Aug 2019

A guy by the name of Kyle once said "There will be blood on the field" How did that turn out for him. Another guy named Hart once referred to his instate rival as "our little sister". How did that turn out? Talk smack on the field, but not to reporters. Did not a guy by the name of Dave once guaranteed a win over TTUN. That did not work out also. Respect

Comment 06 Aug 2019

With JH emphasis on the final regular game as defining the season, maybe he meant to say that it will define his college coaching career. Do ya think that in AA's athletic department that he has been given notice that this HAS to be the year: against a first year coach (with two traitor assistants), with a first year QB, with an untested offensive line, and playing at the Big House no less. Oh the pressure has to be immense!

Comment 17 Jul 2019

Has any one on the staff heard how the demand for the  mini-season ticket sale to both alumni and the public went? I believe that two three-game packages were being offered.  If that sold well, I could see at least three or four games  to be sold out already.
