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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Bottom of the barrel humanity. Those guys should be shot into the sun.
