I believe rotation is the key. The Buckeyes are supposedly stocked at the LB position so let guys play, even the young ones. Look at Chris Olave and the impact he had last season. Is there a young LB like that who can rise to the challenge? Also, if any player at any position is getting whooped with regularity, then next man up.

I follow the reasoning for red shirting young players for future use, but I believe the transfer portal era has changed things. Good players sit too long and they leave. This will only get worse with time. Also, young players with playing time might stay invested in the program. Just my .02

I left most of my cursing in the Navy when I got out. I still refer to them if I am working on a car and I'm not too proud of that.

It is weird how society decides what is a bad/curse word. The F word is an acronym for " Fornication Under Carnal Knowledge". Some say it is "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge". Some historians say it dates back to the 1500's in England.

The S word is supposedly an acronym for "Ship High In Transit", referring to horse or cow manure being transported by ship. Those four letters were supposedly painted on the containers so the fumes would not permeate the entire ship. At least that one makes sense.

Anybody else have info on these or other words? Don't worry boys, the off season is nearly over.

I didn't watch all of the coaches speak but I did catch Jeff Brohm with Purdue.

It was sickening to see their highlights of the Buckeye game over and over. I ended up just looking away, angered at the way our defense looked clueless and out of position. Arm tackles, missed tackles.....horrible.

Fitzgerald with NW is a coach that anyone would like to play for given the chance.

Personally, I hope Rutgers wins a lot of games, except against OSU.

So much in life is affected by timing. Why this, why now?

Urban has retired and That Coach Up North has never beaten him. Was this to energize the fan base? Can't see how it would. It actually reminds them of their futility against our Buckeyes.

Was it to intimidate our new coach saying he had the second best record except for Ohio State? Don't see how that would work considering the talent level and quality coaches at OSU. Have fun chasing Justin Fields around.

Controversies? He is out of coaching. Ancient history. Why this, why now?

Buck It is correct. I bought my Nissan Frontier the last week of December. It is the end of the quarter, end of the year and the dealerships need to get rid of inventory. Don't be afraid to make a lower offer.

Also, consider the Nissan Frontier crew cab. Proven reliability and resale value. Might want to consider a 4x4 living in Ohio. I also like the Canyon/ Colorado line too. Be patient and don't jump at the first deal.

Private party sales are cheaper but you don't always know what you are getting. Dealerships generally have extensive check lists before allowing a used vehicle on their lot. Good luck.

Leaving Jefferey Okudah and KJ Hill off the list invalidates the entire discussion. Seven out of ten of the top 10 from the SEC and Clemson? Wow, really? Didn't see that one coming.

My predictions; Jake Fromm is under rated at #23. UGA lost some receivers but they will reload nicely I'm afraid.

Justin Herbert will excel in the PAC 12 no defense conference but in no way is he 12 spots ahead of Fromm.

Ohio State will finally utilize the tight end position as a lethal weapon. A scrambling Justin Fields will find that open tight end for some memorable plays.

I consulted a therapist in 2004 for some lifelong issues to sort through. My therapist was a wonderful woman who had a clientele made up of police officers, firefighters and other "strong men" type of guys. She really knew how to connect to the male psyche.

She told me that her secret to success was that men could be open and honest with her and respond well to treatment. Moral of the story; you have to be honest with your therapist. Don't be too embarrassed to be honest. Besides, they have heard it all anyway.

You're on your way back beast. Stay the course, learn to dwell on positive things. Let us know how it goes ( if you want to).

Upvote for you Cooper but college football has always been a battle between 5-7 teams every season. And I agree. College football is the greatest sport in the country.

They can tarnish it, slow it down and over regulate it but it remains top dog in my book.

The only comparison to waiting for the college season to start is when a kid anticipates Christmas Day a month or two in advance. I have no idea where the idea that this football season is not highly anticipated. I believe the scandal free, relatively quiet off season may have something to do with it but people are pumped for some football. Go Buckeyes!! Lot's of fresh, new stuff to look forward to.

Good Choice BB. I would also highly recommend joining a local church with an active bible study program. There you can interact with real people, some with the very same situation as yours. it's also a great place to meet some good people.

As a former football player through high school, I like the 2 bye weeks. The players can heal, relax a little and possibly have more time to work on necessary adjustments. We never had bye weeks when i played and man could we have used one at times.

I also like the Friday night game at Northwestern. That's another football Saturday when we can watch other games with hopefully, a Buckeye win in the bank. I do hate mid week games. They are unnecessary money driven events.

Johnny, what's wrong with FAU? They are a legit program with a good coach and an excellent way to open a season. This is especially important this season with a new coach, new schemes and a new quarterback.

Love your articles Johnny.....even when you're wrong ! LOL. Go Buckeyes.

Ohio State football can't get you excited right now but it will in the near future. This will blow over and you will be better for it. Look at all of the comments from posters that went through the same thing, myself included.

It will be hard to find motivation for a while but that will get better with time. We are not lying to you.

I like to pray a lot, laugh a lot and get involved with positive people. Please keep posting and keep us updated on your progress.

Beast, Maine Strength nailed it. Join a health club and get fit. Get a hobby and get good at it. DON'T DO WHAT I DID !!

Planned on marrying my high school sweetheart after my Navy enlistment. Came home on leave and found out from her little sister that my GF had been cheating on me. Four years down the drain and I was crushed. Never thought i would get over it. Everything I saw, heard and experienced reminded me of her. Got back to the base and found out my fellow sailors would help me forget her with a little alcohol. Much of 1978 was a blur to me.

I bought a 1956 Chevy and wrapped myself up in a restoration. Met some new people and eventually got off the booze and found my direction again. That was a bad, bad year (except for the Chevy). I should have taken a healthier road to recovery but I was a mid 20's kid that didn't know better.

Fast forward to today. Been married to a wonderful woman since 1981 and can't imagine marrying anyone else. Believe me brother, there are some good ones left out there. God blessed me tremendously with my wife. BTW, she was a blind date. Go figure.

Sorry for the history lesson but I hope you get the point. Get in shape, meet new people, volunteer to help those less fortunate and please realize that you are unique and valuable to family and friends. It will get better, I promise you. I am praying for you.

When in the Navy in the late 70's, I was in Pensacola and got a cool Pearl River College hat from a friend from Mississippi. Wore it for years because it just looked cool.

I have a couple of USF ( South Florida) hats and a shirt from when my son attended. We went to some football games and I turned into a fan. I still follow the Bulls. I've got a lot of time and money invested in that place.

Buckeyes are still number one with me and their gear is cherished. My wife is from Columbus. Bought her a Buckeyes shirt for Christmas right before the Buckeyes whipped Miami for the title. That shirt is threadbare and worn out but she will not get rid of it.
