MEMBER SINCE   August 06, 2015

Attended my first Ohio State football game as a student in 1971, and will never forget the experience. Graduated from The Ohio State University in 1975, and went on to a 36 year career of teaching and coaching in Ohio high schools. In addition to having taken the football class offered by Coach Hayes and his staff in 1973, I've had the privilege of attending the Spring coaches clinics from the late 1970s through the end of the Tressel years. I've probably attended over 200 Ohio State football games, and have been fortunate enough to have been at the 2003 and 2015 National Championship games. Currently, my wife and I are in the process of attending Ohio State away games at each of the Big Ten sites.

I'm sure the coaching staff has their reasons for throwing a wet blanket on Todd Sibley's recruitment, but this kid seems like a great kid, the kind you really want to have on your football team. No matter what Sibley decides, he will do great. I just hope those great things occur at the Ohio State University.

I am absolutely shocked that Pitino still has his job. Does anyone really believe that Pitino didn't know that one of his staff was organizing and running a house of ill-repute, in one the university dorms no less. Even if Pitino was clueless, which stretches credulity to its very limits, this doesn't in anyway absolve him from responsibility. If Pitino doesn't go, then the whole world will know how complete a fraud the NCAA really is, and the University of Louisville will stand exposed as an institution of higher learning in name only.

Ditto Chicago Buckeye on the future of Tim Beck. I think Sparty rolls over Iowa in the Big Ten Championship, and since they'll get no respect going into the playoffs, that chip on their shoulder that Coach Dantonio so loves, will probably lead them to a National Championship.

Ultimately, the team became the victims of their own success. They've won for so long, had so much success, and received so many accolades, that they had forgotten what it is like to lose, and how hard it is to win. In short, both players and coaches had grown complacent. The Spartans on the otherhand, burned with the fire of the underdog, hungry to earn respect and to payback the Buckeyes for what happened last year at East Lansing. Between now and this coming Saturday, the Bucks need to look within themselves and rediscover the team that took the field against the Wisconsin Badgers just less than one year ago.

These are tough decisions that these young men are making, and it's only natural to have doubts. Bruce and his family should make sure that they are doing what is right for him. As an Ohio State alum, I wish him all the best.

The Bronco's offensive lineman, were upon occasion, able to get to the second level of our defense. It is the responsibility of the defensive lineman to keep offensive lineman off our linebackers; a job that was not always successfully performed in this most recent game. On those occasions, the linebackers were often unable to shed their blockers, leading to big gains by the Bronco running backs. I don't know how many tackles our safeties made on running plays, but I remember having seen more than a few.
