I'm old school (and old), I understand confidence and swagger but there was a time when a head coach had a little class and humility.  It's one thing to say "I believed in our team and felt our conference was underrated" versus "I knew we would kick their ass because their conference sucked".  I feel like I'm talking to one of my kids, but you do get that difference, right?

Well ... JT may end up running more than we'd like, but with all the hype around Kevin Wilson and Campbell and McCall, and Mike Weber the beast being a year year older of course we'd like to see more of a Troy Smith senior year type of stats.

GTH remember Rickey Dudley?  His muscles had muscles.  They used to have a Mr. OSU Physique contest and he won it one year.  He actually had a decent senior year of basketball (although the team was awful) and of course had a breakout season as a tight end.

Reminds me, I had  a class with someone who won the Mr. OSU Physique contest way back in the day, maybe 1973, he was also a 4th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do (Korean ancestry).  An OSU football player tested him once, pushed him while he was working out in the French Field house facilities and that guy got put down fast.  Ken was the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet but not someone you'd want to get macho with.  I remember working out in the French Field house once (back in the day the football players as well as track team would work out there), my imposing 5' 8" frame at 145 pounds, I was doing leg presses and right in the middle a couple of football players came up and told me I wasn't doing enough weight and put the peg down a bunch more plates.  Luckily I was able to do a couple of reps and not get a hernia.  Good times.

We need to have a team like the 2014 team.  They were the perfect blend of speed and power, faster than Alabama and stronger than Oregon.  An up tempo team has to have the threat of a break away runner, which hopefully Weber can do this season, and also the threat of the long ball, which to me is a concern.  Otherwise, defenses will shade off the line a tad and clog up that intermediate spacing and dare you to throw long or try to pop through on the run for more than 2.5 yards.  Will be really interesting to see what all these elite athletes and coaches can accomplish this season.
