I’m fine with sitting.  I don’t like it but can understand.  But you need to do that early. Not the day of the game.  Give the team a chance to practice the whole time with who is going to play.  That part makes me angry.

Is this classy man the same man that said earlier this year, after beating Pitt  (who beat them last year), that we were their Super Bowl, while playing them was just like playing Akron to them.

I'm with you.  I would have laughed so hard if they scored.  I remember Jimmy going for two points when his team was up big on USC in the late fourth quarter against Pete Carol.  That was funny too.  The famous "What's your deal" thing.  I like having coaches from the other team that I hate.  I just don't want that guy to be my coach.

I posted this on another thread but it really applies:  I think it comes down to having 6 receivers and not having any chemistry with any one of them.  JT doesn't trust his WR's because he doesn't get enough time with 3 starters.  When you have 6 WR starters, that means you don't have 3 WR starters.

Honestly, I believe that predictability was the main culprit last season, which is the offensive coordinator's fault.  Things were just too predictable, and defenses were sitting on the routes/plays.  JT held onto the ball too long because things were well defended due to the defenses knowing what we were going to do (and him not wanting to create a turnover).  Kevin Wilson will be playing chess, while last seasons offensive coaches played checkers.  He will set defenses up and make them pay for over-playing what they think is going to happen.  That's what good coordinators do, and that is one of them biggest reasons Kevin Wilson is a good coordinator.  I am really looking forward to this season!  Can't wait!  Go Bucks!

Here are a couple podcasts I listen to (as well as the Dubcast):

Bucknuts Morning 5

The Buckeye Sloopcast

also:   Bucknuts 90 that is going to restart as Bucknuts Live (60 min now) on 1410 WING-AM on Sundays (on Soundcloud or Bucknuts 24/7 for download).  This one is in the process of changing right now so check on it in a couple weeks maybe.

Just wondering if Kevin Wilson will use his own play book and terminology (where all players would need to memorized a new scheme), or if he will tweak the existing playbook and terminology (add his wrinkles).  I would think the players would play a lot quicker and have a fuller playbook early if they did not having to relearn a new playbook.

RR was fine offensively.  He scored enough points to win games.  Unfortunately, he didn't know what letter defense even starts with.  If he would have gotten someone to run his defense that was competent, he would still be coaching at TTUN.

When I have to go to my son's soccer games I listen on my phone to U stream's broadcast of Scarlet and Gray.  With all of the PC'ness of announcers, it's fun getting a pro-OSU take on the game.  I also DVR it to see it later.  People always ruin the surprise, and I live in California.  I guess people know my OSU connection too well.

I think things will be fine.  Why do you think that when Kenny G. came in, the offense ran smoothly?  Was it because he was a better quarterback than Braxton?  No.  It was because the team rallied behind him, and the offense was more balanced (didn't rely on Braxton to make every play).  The offense spread the ball around, making it harder for the defense to key on any one person.  All is not lost!  Have faith in the team and Go Bucks!

Please stop the bashing of the players.  Were they perfect, No.  Who is?  Let's face it, this team just didn't have enough scorers to consistantly win.  Not their fault.  They played hard.  That's all you can ask of your team and players.  Matta messed up a bit by not keeping the team filled with enough offensive tallent, but I wouldn't trade him for anybody else that we could reasonably get.  Go Buck!

I read somewhere that and ACL injury can be more likely by having an imbalance between muscles, causing the injury due to the muscles not firing exactly when they need to.

Comment 13 Feb 2014

ESPN just does this to get hits on their website because OSU moves the needle. Everyone has an opinion on OSU. Some love OSU, some hate OSU, but everyone has an opinon. I vote my displeasure with their bias by not visiting their website or TV station (unless there is an OSU game on it).

They will always have some sway with the way they change uniforms every day (thanks NIKE), but unless the new coach starts having a little more success, they won't get a bunch of elite guys in the future.
