I know OSU has already played 2 conference games (for some reason, I'm not sure exactly why?), but with the non-conference schedule winding down, do you have a prediction for where the Buckeyes finish in the Big Ten?

Comment 20 Dec 2017

I don't like it, but I get it. I know kids who picked teams other than OSU to root for growing up because OSU was all over the place all the time everywhere you went. Carman's been assumed to play at OSU for a long time and he took a different route. Probably didn't like that everyone just assumed he was gonna play for Urban. And with Clemson being one of the top programs in the country right now, he went with Dabo. We'll see how it goes.

I don't know. The pundits say he has turned 2 programs around (Western Kentucky & South Florida) and that he should be able to do big things at a place like Florida State.

He has turned down offers before. And I thought I'd heard something about Whittingham being Mormon, played football @ BYU, and being content with his job at Utah and living in Salt Lake City when he was considered for some openings in the past.

I don't like him, but if you look at Fulmer's record at UT, he should have never been let go at the time he was fired. He got absolutely screwed.

I also found it interesting that Currie was part of the AD's office when Fulmer got the ax and went after Lane Kiffin. Then Fulmer interviewed for UT's open AD job earlier this year, thought he had the job, only to find out Currie was being hired away from Kansas State for the position. But to appease him and his supporters, Fulmer was given a glorified spokesperson/consultant role with UT. And now Fulmer is replacing Currie. It's come full circle.

As a Tennessee resident surrounded by SEC folks every day of my life, I have thoroughly enjoyed this week.

The saddest thing in all of this is the value they place on their program and where they honestly believe it fits within the landscape of college football today.

As a guy that lives in Tennessee, I know you can't go anywhere without seeing and hearing about the SEC 24/7. How difficult was your decision to leave the South and commit to Ohio State given all your other offers? And how bad has the backlash been?

Comment 19 Nov 2017

As an Ohio State fan living in Murfreesboro, I just wanna say, it's been pretty cool to follow your high school career and see you commit to the Buckeyes.

When considering your options on where to play football at the next level, what factors lead to your decision to choose OSU over other offers from schools that were closer to home?
