Comment 18 Jun 2019

The scribes of the college football world may be expecting and even forgiving a significant drop-off in OSU football success this year considering new coach, staff and QB.  Then again, Lincoln Riley replaced Bob Stoopes and took his team to the final 4 in the first two years of his tenure --  and had 2 Heisman-winning QBs.  Call it as you see it, but that is the standard, and it's been proven possible.  Enough with the modest expectations bull shit. 

Comment 12 Jun 2019

Maybe I am stating the obvious, but the only context I can possibly think of for the people on that list is.....how well they played in college and how dull or ineffective their careers were in the NFL.   K'Jana Carter come to mind, anyone?  Again, that is the only "logic" I can see on that list.  College heroes.....NFL...."zeroes" or something like that.  Still...a dumbass list -- kind of wish I didn't devote any time to it, but if Ramzy writes it - I read it!

Not that I am excusing the performance by any means, kmp, but I think Grinch felt he was sold a bill of goods. 

The minute Schiano was "fired" from consideration at Tennessee, it meant he was coming back to Columbus and Grinch was relegated to his role as a position coach.  Despite Grinch's "coming home" to Columbus, he sure mailed in the season and started looking elsewhere probably in September.  The only thing I can surmise in his defense.....is that he had a 180 degree disagreement with how Schiano wanted to run the defense and moreover, run the secondary.  Honestly, I think it will be ten years before we really understand what happened to last year's defense in terms of an honest, "so that explains it" realization.

I can forgive or "put in context" a lot of polls and rankings when it comes to college football.  But under no scenario can I forgive or explain away the omission of LJ from a list of best coordinators or position coaches in college football.  I can better accept the Buckeyes being out of the preseason top 15 this coming season than leaving LJ off of any lists. 

Comment 11 Jun 2019

If all goes according to plan, Gunnar Hoak won't play a competitive snap for the Buckeyes.

While we know what you meant by that comment, I hope Gunnar Hoak plays a lot of "competitive snaps" for the Buckeyes, even it it is "mop up" duty in the fourth quarter.  I think these kids consider every snap a competitive one, even if the game has already been decided.  I hope he does more than just take a knee in the last 10 seconds of a game .....as long as Fields is delivering as we expect him to do.

Regarding the White Out atmosphere....be careful what you wish for.   I was stupid enough to wear Buckeye colors to the 2009 white out game and eh.....it wasn't the most fun I have ever had with my clothes on.  Electrifying?  Yes.  And to be fair, most PSU fans are pretty cool and nice.  The vocal minority, however, are another thing.  If you go to one on an east coast road trip, make sure you tailgate in the camping lot (it really is awesome) and attend a white out against say..........Michigan instead.

Comment 05 Jun 2019

I agree.  I was going to post the same thing.   

When our writer pokes fun at Michigan ..."cough, cough as a team with no Offense" ....when the same Michigan team puts up 39 on your D (please don't give me garbage time excuses) you've thrown a rock from a glass house. 

And yes, Cincinnati will be more motivated and have more talent than a number of Big Ten teams we will play this season. 

Comment 03 Jun 2019

Yes.  New Bruns.   You'll read about "Piscataway" being the home to Rutgers, but, eh.....only for the zip code  description of the stadium.  

Downtown New Brunswick is the bar scene.  Start with Old Man Rafferty's......then work the town on foot.

If you get a great deal at the New Brunswick Hyatt, take it!  I would be surprised if the team wasn't staying there. It's a corporate scene.  Still, I would take it if the price was right..... unless you are looking for something more funky. 

But regardless, as you are reading, you'll have options.  To be honest, my friends who are Rutgers grads, are paying for their golf trips to Ireland on their ticket sales to OSU, Michigan, and Penn State fans.  So....be choosy. 

Have fun, 57.  Maybe my wife and I will see you there!

Comment 03 Jun 2019

I don't live too far from Rutgers. (better yet, ask Ramzy -- I think he lives there or nearby)

Pretty good bar scene (I don't know about the tailgating scene) since it is a college -- and also corporate (J&J) town of New Brunswick. 

Yes, Newark would be your closest major airport.  If you have a lot of United points, it is one of their hubs. 

From New Brunswick, you can also take the train to NYC and be there in less than 45 minutes. 

Great area, but it's also an urban melting pot. I would not be staggering the surrounds of New Brunswick (or Piscataway) alone, late at night, just FWIW.

Maybe.  Then again, on that first half run for a TD by Northwestern (the run that told the Committee they had seen all they needed to see) that RB ran right by all that speedy talent Urban Meyer recruited -- and it wasn't even close.  

Comment 30 May 2019

I'll nitpick on this, but the lopsided score prediction vs. Maryland is not likely to occur.  Maryland has some elite speed and talent -- at least on Offense.  They let last year's game get away from them and will come into the Shoe ready to play.  I see another close game.  For whatever reason, of all the teams in the B1G East they will face, I see the Terps playing the Buckeyes tougher than anyone else. 

Comment 30 May 2019

That's what everyone said about the 95 Buckeyes before getting "Biakabatuka'd on that fateful day.  For this team to suffer only 1 loss with so many question marks entering the year would be pretty remarkable.  Of course, as others have posted, it depends on what that 1 loss looks like. 

Comment 25 May 2019

How many does Dan Marino have?   Do I think McNabb was as good as Marino?   No.  But I think he is a HOFer.   

A lot of comparisons to Aikman.  If  # 5 had the weapons Aikman had, he'd be a 1st ballot HOFer.   Period.  

Was - and is.....McNabb a flawed QB and perhaps, human being?  Absolutely.   So are many QBs in the HOF.
