I think the entire Vol fan base would be very forgiving to whomever they hired if they became winners again.

I mean, our defense appears to be greatly improved and we just got two great coaches from you know who.

Vince Lombardi, the great Green Bay Packers coach used to say " winning takes care of everything".

I agree RM, especially about the Clemson Jr.League schedule. The Buckeyes get grief for scheduling teams like Miami but the Tigers have several gimme games and a weak conference. It baffles me.

It makes me appreciate the really good sportswriters.

Besides our own 11W staff, ( plug intended), who are the really good sportswriters?

Don't worry. When the pay for play is approved, they will get better.

Dobbins and Teague both rush for 150+ yards. Chug and Hoak both throw TD passes. Harrison gets 2 sacks.

OSU wins 56-3. They empty the bench in this one.

Wisky wins 31-10.

I live in Gator country, just south of Gainesville. Worked for years with mostly Gator fans with FSU and Miami fans sprinkled in. My oh my football season was fun. The one thing they all had in common was a dislike of the Buckeyes. I feel your pain.

Please don't laugh at this serious suggestion.

Pet sitting/walking is a crazy growth business these days. He could probably do some school work when the pet(s) are sleeping. One of the fastest growing businesses in the U.S. People that pay for pet sittings sometimes are very generous for finding the right one to watch their little darlings. Check it out.

I am enjoying a new season with a strong and disciplined defense. Justin Fields is a cool, confident field marshal who ,so far, is playing like a more experienced player. Calling past opponents garbage teams is wrong this early in the season. Temple could have been called a garbage team before last weekend.

No scandals, no derogatory press and great, young players who are excelling. We all hope this continues.

But Johnny, i do agree about this early season. New coach, QB and a lot of young players. It is more exiting than previous early seasons.

I have admittedly harped on discipline, tackling and less penalties in the past. This team looks very well coached and perfecting these fundamentals will pay dividends down the line. I hate repeated penalties and arm tackles. Every top team has talent, but disciplined talent will win out every time. I love coach Day's approach and expect the Buckeyes to get even better. I like the toughness and attention to detail he is instilling in the team.

BTW, I am impressed with Binjimin Victor's performance so far. He is making catches consistently .

Comment 17 Sep 2019

This season is starting out better than I expected. The run game and defensive dominance is great to see. The one big improvement over previous Buckeye teams is the tackling. The defense swarms and tackles, even in the open field. A large part of the problem with those big losses the past two years was the teams inability to stop the big play; tackling a player.

Also, there are fewer penalties and mental errors so far. Coach Day has also done a great job with Justin Fields. Coaches always say we need to block and tackle better. So far, Day's players are doing this.

We have big games coming up. Talent + fundamentals = success.

Comment 17 Sep 2019

Computer algorithms don't care about whether the team comes from the SEC..

This right here. The human element, bias, is what frustrates so many people. I don't care what ESPN or otherwise experts have to say. Computers give cold, hard facts, minus the emotions and agendas. Until we get to a real playoff involving conference champions only, the human bias will be unfair to some teams. Let the teams win it on the field, not in the TV studio. Up vote for Jack for this analysis.

Comment 16 Sep 2019

What we need is for Utah or Wazzu to win out. An undefeated PAC 12 champ would be a lock for the playoff.  Buckeyes win out and who cares about the rest.

A lot of media out there wanting to get that west coast audience for the playoffs.

All that said, I can't ever pull for Georgia so maybe a tie with ND is the answer.

Comment 16 Sep 2019

You can argue B1G vs SEC all day. I think the bigger issue is hyping the ACC and trying to justify Clemson's schedule.How would OSU or Wisconsin do in the ACC?

BTW, I think Auburn is going to upset the Bama/UGA apple cart this year.

Comment 16 Sep 2019

Just a tad bit exaggerated there Eddie. At least they give credit to B1G teams that are good. Would you rather have SEC/ ACC everything 24/7/365 ? That's the other option.

The Game day format has gotten old with me. Used to be an automatic thing to turn on Game day every Saturday. Fox and BTN Tailgate are what I watch now. ESPN is now just a college football game only network for me, nothing else. I also love the mute button on my remote.

Gus is a UM guy?? Didn't know that. He is easily one of the most passionate announcers in football. He seems more exited about the Buckeye accomplishments than Herbsreit. He and Klatt are the #1 duo hands down.
