He was my high school coach. He is authentic and he does care about kids. I was not a football player but he knew I did well academically and always gave me verbal props for it which was cool because being smart wasn’t always the greatest thing in high school if you know what I mean. I think he respects hard work in whatever form it takes.

I survived cardiac arrest as a child from an accident and it’s why I work in pediatric critical care now. I recall nothing about my resuscitation and no pain. No white light but my Mom swears to this day I was saved so that I could go on and spend the rest of my life saving other children.

I'm still pissed. I was pissed the minute #73 didn't get called for practically twisting Chase's head off and I really never cooled down after that. To be fair I was pretty pissed before then because I was getting sick of seeing them kicking and shoving our players after the play - particularly Justin's knee. 

If I'm being really honest I've been pissed since I saw the pictures from the last game of them putting hands in places they don't belong.  

The whole thing has just made me want to step away from CFB a bit. I can handle tough calls but this whole playoff has felt like a bit dump of disprect.  I've never been an anti-Herbie person but last night it was like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard as he went on and on about Dabo's greatness. I also got super tired the whole awards season watching our guys get passed over (especially Dobbins and Okudah). What really sucks is that now we basically fulfilled SEC/Clemson's dialog which is that we aren't elite. We're 0-4 against Clemson and only have made it to the final game only once. I truly feel we had the better team and got robbed. I also think it's hellishly unfortunate that we always play Michigan late in the season and they almost always seem to break our quarterback which puts us in a bad place for a CFP run. If Michigan can't win they always at least try to harm.

My wish is that we re-align the Big 10 East and West and *gasp* consider rotating Michigan like all the other teams now that they really are no longer a rival and we consider a chicken shit saturday schedule like the ACC and SEC to avoid late season injuries which screw with playoff hopes.  If we want ourselves to be in the final game annually we have to set ourselves up to succeed just like the rest. Ug.

If they have that many *starters out they might as well DQ the team from the playoff and put someone else in bc letting LSU play them vs us getting a full Clemson seems kinda shady as far as path to trophy.  Sure we can handle Clemson but we are going to be sore and tired  (maybe with new or exacerbated injuries) after playing a full strength Clemson vs LSU cake walking in. Also If that many players would they consider that lack of institutional control and go after the whole program?

National Championship ring = team accomplishment which is a greater accomplishment than individual awards because it shows you are both excellent as an individual but also able to lead and lend your strengths to  others. Our team this year is stronger than any one player so in a way it’s fitting that despite so many great Ohio State players the Heisman we all know will go to someone else. Because we worked as team no individuals light shined alone.

JK seems so hard on himself - I know that is what drives greatness but I hope he’s able to reflect on what he’s accomplished and feel proud about it too. His Dad must be smiling down. 

Comment 09 Dec 2019

This team reminds me of 2014 because they seem so happy. Ryan Day looks like he’s having the best year of his life. He seems to have unlimited faith in his players and I think they respond to that.  LSU seems to have a similar high level of energy. Can’t wait for the final game - both teams have a lot of heart.

Ah 2 of top 3 highest paid coaches bowl -- the Money Bowl.  Let's see who is earning their ridiculous salary and who is not.

Comment 08 Dec 2019

Agree. What the committee is forgetting is that our run option QB was not 100% and we've had a bit of a position shuffle going on due to injuries etc. the last 2 games.  Meaning our silver bullets have been a little lack luster I think for both Wisky and TTUN.  However, with time off hopefully we will be back to 100%.with a chip on our shoulder about being #2.

And think what Drue can do with time for more meaningful snaps in practice  /s

Comment 06 Dec 2019

I wonder how much money he's being offered right now and by how many teams? Must be fun.  I will say if he moves to Dallas there are some excellent hospitals there...but Ohio has the best at Cardiology in the Cleveland Clinic and he might want to think about that!

Comment 06 Dec 2019

I would pick 2016 semi-final vs Clemson. We scored 0 points. I don't think we scored 0 points in any other game that I can ever recall in my OSU history so it's epic for that reason. Not even being able to get a freaking field goal is still mind blowing to me.

But Taylor didn’t share any reps and wasn’t being pulled out at half time because of shaming other programs 

Comment 04 Dec 2019

Sacrificial lamb bc the voters felt guilty giving it all to Ohio State. Whatever - he’ll win the Doak Walker and be the first RB off the board in the draft. 

Comment 04 Dec 2019

I guess what I’m saying - as a physician - is that clearance is an illusion. There are too many potential variables/confounders for “clearance” as you call it to be meaningful. The physician can advise precautions (brace, limited contact/running) but once the kid is out there he can go against advice as he wishes or something unanticipated can happen. So medical assurance of risk etc is really kind of a joke here. All the physician can do is give an idea of what may happen if certain contacts should happen and suggest that it should be avoided.

I don’t follow that comment. There is always a risk of acl/mcl tear for pretty much any player at any time in any game? Shit I could tear mine ice skating to my car in an icy parking lot this week?
