Interesting - I didn't realize the NCAA got involved in the Zach Smith affair nor that the NCAA ran Urban Meyer out of town.  I thought he retired from coaching and stepped into and Assistant Athletic Director job at Ohio State. 

I learn something new here every day.

I always wondered what Ohio State has for policies/procedures around legal and regulatory issues.  It seems a no-brainer to escalate known violations to the senior management/executive level for discussions with in-house counsel. 

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Be careful - that would make '42, '54, '57, and '61 as 0.5 title years for the Buckeyes and '70 probably about 1/16th of a title.

I remember a smart coach benching Todd Boeckman for Terrelle Pryor.  Maybe he is actually good at this

Comment 11 May 2019

The ACC and SEC have benefited because they have had by far the 2 best teams - Clemson and Alabama.  The B1G on the other hand has been outscored 69-0 in their last 2 appearances.

I want expansion strictly because my team has finished just outside the top 4 the last 2 years.  If they had been in the top 4 I sure as s&%t wouldn't be calling for expansion.

I hear the same from TTUN and PSU fans at work

Fuck Urban.  Ohio State is not good solely because of him.  He probably wants people to think that but I suspect OSU turns a blind eye to everything shady he does that UM admin and fans would never allow.

Everybody thinks their side is on the up and up while the champs are dirty

Comment 20 Apr 2019

Huh I guess this FPI is based largely on returning offensive production and returning coach.  Logic says that would rate Ohio State lower since most of the offensive production graduated and the head coach left.  Experience and talent level on the roster say that likely Ohio State is better than this ranking.  The author then says Ohio State is likely better than this ranking due to other returning and incoming talent.  Also this isn't a poll and all of the polls including ESPN will have Ohio State in their top 5 at the beginning of the season not to mention Ohio State is in the top 4 in Vegas odds so there is no disrespect going on.

Maybe we should have an ESPN FPI FOL (faux outrage level) with a formula:

ESPNFPIFOL = 1 / IQ

I said that last year and watched an undermanned Nebraska with a true frosh starting QB hang 31 on the Buckeyes in Ohio Stadium.

If the Buckeye defense isn't better then this will be a battle

No no no its just a calzone dude

Comment 22 Jan 2019

upvote but to let you know that is part of Jon Bois' style.  He is actually hilarious with his Breaking Madden Beeftank series and his Pretty Good series is excellent also.

Comment 04 Jan 2019

Its interesting to see the use of 0.5 for national titles.  By that measure Ohio State would be down to 5.5 total what with '42, '54, '57, '61, and '70 being split titles.

Comment 27 Dec 2018

I was curious about this and ran some numbers on signees and early entries to the NFL

Signees over the last 5 years (source:  Rivals)

Alabama - 124 or 24.8/year

Ohio State - 122 or 24.4/year

Early entries to NFL over the last 5 years (source:  NFL.com)

Alabama - 18 or 3.6/year

Ohio State - 19 or 3.8/year

The numbers are pretty close - maybe Alabama processes a few more players?  It also looks like some of the signees at each school didn't actually make it into school i.e. Jamel Dean but I don't have good data on that.

Comment 26 Dec 2018

I vary on this.

If the Buckeyes finish 1-4 then I want a 4-team playoff

If the Buckeyes finish 5-6 then I want a 6-team playoff

If the Buckeyes finish 7-8 then I want an 8-team playoff

Comment 25 Oct 2018

Maybe they could promote Tuf Borland to be LB coach. 

He's already there and has the same amount of coaching experience as Boren.  Seems like a smart kid and a hard-nosed player.  I'm sure he knows the defense and could break down film well.
