As an eastern Ohio guy, with MAJOR family ties into Western PA, I'm perfectly fine with Ohio's professional sports teams sucking.  In fact, I quite prefer it.  

If the Blue Jackets winning this season has ANY impact on Buckeyes football, they had better stop right now.  I'm not sure I've ever been more excited for the Spring game than I am this year.  (maybe 2015?  but I was still fat off the National Championship, so the juice wasn't as strong as this year.)

Purdue dealt with a lot of injuries last season, and have some serious firepower in that offense.

i definitely think they will be better than a 2 win team.

Teague was a RS Freshman, getting second team reps in games AND IN PRACTICE.  This is incredibly important to remember. 

If anyone actually thinks he isn't explosive, they haven't been paying attention.  He will have 10+ explosive plays of 40 or more yards next year.  Book it.  Hes very big, and very fast, and he gets another year under Coach Micks watchful gaze to expand on that.  Hes going to be an absolute monster, especially late in games.  He reminds me of a combination of Beanie and Eddie.  With the maulers we'll have up front (I actually think there is a chance Harry Miller supplants Meyers at center, even though Josh is one of the best we've had in a while.....hes THAT good), if we can develop a one-cut running game to suit his strengths, hes going to be tough to tackle, especially in the 4th quarter.      

This season, we got to enjoy the 1's (JF and JO) and the 2's (JKD and CY) wreck either side of the field.

Next year?  Its time for the 33's to feast.

Pulling for Springfield! The school is about 20 minutes up the road from where I live. Their QB is a Sophmore, and the son of YSU Hall of fame QB (and 2-time National Champion under Tress) Mark Brungard.  Beau is the real deal.  Hes the type of player that can equalize a game that otherwise might be one sided.  That said, its probably going to tough to dethrone a MAC school in the title game, but honestly, for this area, its exciting that they have the chance.  Its been years since a small school from the area had a real shot at a state title.

Go TIgers!

What I think it comes down to is who can make that 1 big game turning play.  A blocked kick, or an INT. This Penn State team definitely has talent, and will not be an easy out for the boys on Saturday.

That said, I'm predicting a fairly close game.  84-0 Good guys, and James Franklin tunnels his most-punchable weasel face out of the stadium at halftime, and prays that USC's new AD wasn't watching.

Go Bucks.

Comment 12 Nov 2019

Last week, we were #1, LSU was #2, and Alabama was #3.  Nothing that happened last week should have changed that right?  The committee was saying that LSU was a slightly better team than Alabama, and Ohio State was better than both of them.

Other than just beating a team they were ranked above, what did LSU do in that game to cause them to jump us?  Nearly give up a 20pt second half lead?  They played a close game with a team the committee judged was worse than them.  Had LSU been #3, and Alabama been #2, I could see them jumping, but as it stands, the committees rankings played out exactly as they expected.  If LSU boat-raced Alabama, I could see it, but sneaking out with a win in a game they led by 20pts?  I'm not convinced.  Unless of course, the committee ACTUALLY thought that Alabama was #1, but couldn't justify it because their schedule has been softer than wet Charmin...  

Of course, none of this matters, as long as we get 1, 2, 3, or 4 by the end of the season, I could care less where we finish.  I just want to get in, and let this fully operational death star loose on America.

I answered Testudo, so I'm taking full credit for that "C" this week fellas.

Comment 19 Oct 2019
I don't think there's any way that turnover machine they call an offense in AA goes into a whiteout and beats this PSU defense. Clifford would have to be really REALLY terrible.
Comment 17 Oct 2019

Lynn was a human highlight reel at Harding, but anyone from this area knows with certainty that his character issues were not unsubstantiated.  I'm glad to hear hes gotten his life together, but there was no way of knowing he actually would.  Part of me wanted the Buckeyes to take a shot with this young man, but he was probably better off putting more distance between himself and Warren.

Penn St has played 2 defenses with a pulse in Iowa and Pitt.  If either team had any offensive acumen, PSU has 2 losses.  I think tOSU has only speed bumps left on this schedule until The Game.  Wiscy isnt multiple enough to stress our D, and Coach Day already has a gameplan in his head to attack what UW does  defensively.  Add in that the game is at the Shoe?  We good.

Say what you want about scUM, but I lived through the Cooper years, and I will never take that game lightly.  I saw too many near great Buckeye teams lose to that godawful helmet and fight song. scUM is always the most dangerous team left on our schedule, until they finally decide to quit fielding a team.

Comment 30 Sep 2019

Maybe I'm still suffering from PTSD from the Cooper years, but I'll never ever ever count a win over that team until the clock reads all zeros, or we're trotting out the Chuggernaut up by 12 TD's.  I saw some dominant OSU teams fall to scUM teams that didn't belong on the same field, and frankly, this years game scares me more than any in about the last 10 years, 2011 excluded.

I have faith in the staff and players not taking their foot off the gas.  This team feels so much more professional than any of Urbs teams, but my Cooper PTSD prevents me from a false sense of security or bravado where the skunk weasels are concerned.
