MEMBER SINCE   January 17, 2018

Born and raised in Lorain, Buckeye fan since I can first recall watching a game on TV and that was 1965. Favorite Buckeye moment - getting Woody Hayes' autograph as a kid. Suffering in the hell hole known as PSU country but love sticking it to the fans here. Have made attending the Spring Game a tradition with my two grown sons.

Now, while I understand that the competition has been far less than what the Buckeyes have faced on D here is a telling stat. Sacks on Lawrence this year - 12.  Sacks on Fields - 27. 

However, the few decent teams they played this year provided the bulk of the sacks. Wake Forest had 3, Virginia had 2, A&M had 2. The better teams also did not allow Trevor to run successfully (not that he is much of a runner to begin with). Cannot find stats on how many hurries each qb has had.

The prison piece is interesting. However, that comparison of the percent of those who commit crimes after going through such a program versus not is very misleading. The reality is that you are already starting with a motivated group as well likely prisoners pre-selected with attributes that are already likely leading to a lower percentage chance of committing a future crime. Still a good program and opportunity.

Don't buy the smokescreen comment one bit. Have to win twice regardless of who they play. Just like in 2014 the opportunity in the semi-final to exorcise a demon is now there. Hell, could have made us 3. Does not change the fact that their reasoning is flawed. Georgia had no business being #4 prior to this weekend and if you were paying attention to the game Saturday and have any amount of objectivity in your brain you would not still be thinking that they should be in the conversation for #4 now. Or #5. Or #6. They are not a really good team like the Buckeyes were last year and happened to have a bad game. They barely handled the ranked teams they beat and got curb stomped in the one game they lost against a ranked team.
