Wade is correct that Lawrence ducked his head into the path of Wade's helmet. The problem on Wade's part is that he had his head down (which means he was leading with the crown of his helmet, which is usually [but of course not always] a penalty). If his head would've been eyes up/face-mask up (I'm assuming that's still how players are taught to tackle) it might have led to a no-call or at least no ejection.

I remember the last time a Heisman Trophy was awarded to an Ohio State player before a National Championship Game and how our team played after that. It was ugly. I think I'm okay with an OSU grad and Ohio kid winning it - regardless of who he plays for - and us staying hungry for what comes after the ceremony... and for what really matters.

While I know all we need to do is keep winning, it never fails to irk me when the so-called experts claim that our schedule is the issue, when Alabama's big win appears to be against a Texas A&M team that is ranked where it is ranked only because it's now in the SEC (I know, I know. SEC). I wish the playoffs were the winners of the conferences. If the powers that be (including the league commissioners) really want to put butts in the seats and for games to matter throughout the year (not to mention taking the guesswork and speculation out of it), that's what they would do. But, what do I know?  ***PS - Hypothetical theory: LSU beats Bama, then Georgia beats LSU in the SEC Championship game, leaving three one-loss SEC teams. All three make the playoffs along with Clemson, leaving a 12-0 B1G champion out (as well as possibly a one loss PAC12 champ out)...

If he chooses not to play that's his business. Why he was allowed to stand on the sidelines after abandoning his teammates I absolutely do not understand. He quit. He shouldn't have been on our sideline and shouldn't have been transported there by OSU $$$

JT made some terrible throws (OK, a lot of terrible throws). The receivers made some terrible catches (sarcasm: they didn't make catches when JT actually made the throws). But what amazes me is that the offensive play-calling continues to be uninspired, unimaginative, and often unbelievable. I find it hard to believe that his is the same guy that called very good plays elsewhere.

I think the other team will start more Ohio kids than the Ohio team. I know I'm beating a dead horse, but it's hard to be a fan on a bunch of kids who aren't from Ohio, regardless of where they're playing. As I said before, I'm a fan of Ohio people, not simply an Ohio institution...

Nothing new here: Urban doesn't identify the lack of running plays during the game; our pass game fails us; we lose; during the post game presser he tells the media that he needs to go back and look at the tape; he looks at the tape then tells us that the backs should have had more carries. This is pretty much the story of every game we've lost during his tenure. I'm glad we win often, but can't someone besides the fans, the announcers, and the opponent identify the problem during the game? It's really not that difficult.

You know, 5-star "athletes" look great out there running around, really fast, increasing "team speed." But, in my ignorant opinion, what we really need are a few more "football players," and a few less track stars. Just because you're big and fast and strong doesn't mean you know how to play the game. Instinct... work ethic... desire... heart. In my opinion those are the attributes we sometimes seem to be lacking. But I'm just a fan with decades of viewing experience, not a coach who knows everything. So just ignore me.

Seems like everyone knows how to fix the offense, except the one who needs to know. And he appears oblivious as to what to do next. I don't even know what to say about the defense except, start recruiting some linebackers who know how to play the position; who have that football sense you can't teach, instead of athletes who run around (albeit fast) without a clue as to what they should be doing. 

Comment 10 Sep 2017

Fix the damn passing game by establishing the freaking running game. I'm confused as to why a team that can move the ball on the ground insists on trying to throw it when the running game can move them down the damn field. Run, run, run, pass, run pass, run, run, RUN! When they commit to stopping the run, that's when you throw the ball. But hey, I'm not a football genius like our staff obviously is.

JT has done a lot for this team and loyalty is a good thing. But unless I'm mistaken the goal is to win games. The best way to make that happen is by playing the best players. I'm pretty sure JT is NOT our best QB right now. Urban owes it to the team to play the best players at EVERY position... With this defense and JT at QB we're looking at a 10-2 or 9-3 regular season.

Comment 10 Sep 2017

Playcalling hasn't changed for the last three years. Time for the head coach to stop acting like he has no authority to call plays or influence the plays being called. The offensive coordinator may be failing, but the head coach is allowing it to happen. Time to man-up. Likewise, I've very surprised the defense has looked so badly coached. The linebackers look totally lost and the DBs have no clue how to stop a receiver from catching the ball.  

Comment 11 Jul 2017

Winning is important. Winning is great. But as we've begun to win without a roster filled with Ohio kids, I find myself caring less and less. I didn't go to school at Ohio State... so if OHIO State isn't winning (or even playing) with OHIO kids, what's so "Ohio" about Ohio State and why would a non-Ohio State graduate care that much? But in all honesty I find myself caring less and less about sports in general. The money and the privilege has really ruined it for me. Sorry for the rant.

Comment 28 Apr 2017

There's a reason I don't watch pro football anymore (a few reasons actually) with the main one being that the franchises in Cleveland and Cincinnati are embarrassingly bad. Not just bad teams, but bad franchises led by terrible ownership and ignorant front office people. If for no other reason than to attract people to their games or to get viewers on their broadcasts, they should make an effort to draft Buckeyes. They can't perform any worse can they? It's not like drafting Ohio State players has helped to get them to where they are...
