To be fair, you only have to cover the WRs because we are never going to throw to the TE more than 30 times a year.

Dabo seems like a real pos, but I’m sure that’s jealousy bias. He’s got Clemson built into a machine with no end in sight. He did what Urban was supposed to do here, so I hate him for that. 

Dantonio for me. I am thankful for his OSU contribution but he’s just an angry asshole. He’s Brian Kelly but instead of purple outbursts he just scowls and makes up some slight about the world hating them. Smiling for him looks like someone did a terrible job photoshopping someone else’s mouth onto his face.

I’d change the rules so we don’t lose in embarrassing fashion to a mid level big ten team ever again. That should definitely be against the rules. 

Comment 01 May 2019

What everyone else said, but adding: the fact that it’s not like rooting for the professional teams in Ohio. Outside of the Cavs run a couple years ago, the rest of Cleveland sports has been unable to get to the top of the mountain or sustain any sort of consistent excellence. And who wants to be around average? OSU is the only consistently above average entity, and I love that. 

Comment 12 Apr 2019

No amount of players rising above was going to help that poor nickel try to stay with our crossing routes last year. That required a scheme change or a turbo button. 

Not a horrible take, but not 100% (like most).

Comment 27 Mar 2019

Coaches would have to use one of their challenges on it, so this just takes the place of a different replay; no additional time added. The only part to add time is the booth initiated ones in the last two minutes of each half. 

Comment 26 Mar 2019

Metcalf is a one trick pony. He can’t stop or change directions. This may age poorly since he’s such a physical specimen but there’s a reason he had horrible stats. He’ll be out of the league before TMac. 

Agree with your thoughts, the Metcalf hype just triggers me apparently. 

Comment 11 Mar 2019

I think our away jerseys are miles ahead of our home jerseys. Cleanest look in CFB. 

I don’t get to tell you how to do your OSU fandom. Boo if you want, get drunk and post ridiculous stuff, whatever. The holier than thou piece of our fan base should Gtfo.

We are spoiled as a fan base and probably deserve a long mediocre stretch for a lot of us (especially younger fans) to get some perspective.

I miss real grass fields. 

The Shoe is generally a horrible place to watch a game, other than the team.

Comment 08 Mar 2019

Much like when Devin Smith left, I think we are going to miss Campbell’s speed more than we think next year. The ability to score on a bubble screen or pop pass, I’m not sure we have that breakaway guy yet. Maybe Gill can become that. MCCall seems more shifty than blazing speed (not that he’s not fast, just not fast like those guys). Dobbins has never been that guy, same with Mack or Victor. 

Comment 04 Mar 2019

Jesus was a football coach, and Einstein preferred Tae Kwon Do, so...

It’s Ohio State, sky high expectations are what we do. Unfortunately in basketball we are in the same boat as ND in football; close enough to fall just short a couple of times in the last 15 years and no National Championship since the Cold War. 

Comment 02 Mar 2019

Definitely sounds like a vector problem from physics class, but...I was told there would be no math. 

Comment 02 Mar 2019

Is he not up to “one of the best I’ve ever been around” tier 1 status though? 

Comment 23 Feb 2019

I’d love to have him but I honestly don’t know why elite TEs would come here. They are perpetually underused and probably the 5th or 6th in line to touch the ball on any given play, unless it’s a 3rd/4th and short designed for 3 yards. 

Comment 13 Feb 2019

To be fair, Ginn was the fastest player in CFB and Campbell wasn’t far off. Expecting us to have that on the roster year in and year out is fairly unrealistic. We were plenty explosive with an athletic QB (Miller) and clown show receivers a few years ago. Day seems to be able to scheme matchups that cause chunk plays, we just need unproven guys to be able to execute them. 

Comment 10 Feb 2019

What makes you think some of these high profile guys aren’t making 6 figures to sign with some school anyway? In addition to the physical gap mentioned above, I disagree with your premise that it’s 250k or zero. There’s enough smoke floating around about 100K and a house for the fam at certain schools that I think the monetary gap is smaller than you think. 

That being said it’s another avenue and I hope the league succeeds. And if they want to go after HS kids, good for them. The NFL has benefitted from their monopoly for so long that anyone else succeeding even on a small scale is a good thing. Even if it does nothing to hurt CFB or the NFL, it helps the players.
