I think MT3 flashed a bunch this year, and was at his best when moving north and south. He probably has better top end speed than JK, but at this point lacks the “make a man miss in the hole” quickness (have we ever seen a jump cut?). I think he can make significant improvements in the agility department, but I hope the coaches retool the run game to take advantage of his primary strengths: running over linebackers and sprinting past safeties.

Huge fan of the Block O. The old-school "Woody" cap that I've had since high school is still my fave.

But if you want to rock the "Patriotic Trekkie Buckeye" look, you're in business! https://www.nike.com/t/club-fleece-mens-hoodie-fL0GS7/M31777-OH8

Yeah, I talked with Buckeye Corner and they are saying they won't get any of the sideline gear unless our Buckeyes win the semi! Very strange...

Agree that a lot of the current Nike stuff doesn’t seem that great (or high quality). The long sleeved top from 2014 is one piece I regret missing out on though. Have yet to track one down on Ebay, but was hoping Nike might release something similar this year. In contrast to the swoosh, my reverse weave Champion sweatshirts from the 90s are still going strong, and are apparently trending these days as choice “vintage” pieces.

Thanks everyone. I am looking specifically for the “diamond swoosh” items. I might give Buckeye Corner a call to see if they have a timeline; will keep you posted.

What if he had said “fuck off, you condescending bitch?” Still a massive jerk? 

Sometimes it’s about not being an uptight prick and instead about being tolerant of other’s opinion. 

Goddamn this fucking site has become so vanilla...

Bigger dicks? Not sure...I think shrinking balls are a bigger concern in Columbia...

Comment 09 Dec 2019

I'm not overly familiar with Clemson's opponents this season. What was the best RB/O-line combo they faced with this undersized D-line? 

Comment 09 Dec 2019

It matters on principle. It’s not even about OSU and LSU, it’s the incredible inconsistency from the committee—and the precedent it creates—that is the issue. 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

How is it that nobody nationally is talking about the fact that the Buckeyes, with a really solid schedule, have been behind a grand total of 16 minutes this season (the majority of which was against Miami OH...lolololol...). This team is one of the most statistically dominant of all time and yet is still ranked #2 in the media polls. 

Comment 23 Nov 2019

As a 90s kid who dealt with the emotional fallout of seemingly invincible Cooper-led Ohio State teams getting throttled by TTUN and State Penn (and even a Saban-led Sparty), the end of 2001 and all of 2002 were soul-cleansing. 2002 was very much a week-to-week adventure. Capping the season with the OT thriller in the desert against the ‘Canes, that final exorcism of a 30+ year NC drought, remains my best Buckeye moment EVER.

This Flordia/Aub game is a joke. And guaranteed that PSU will still be ranked behind the winner. 

Comment 29 Sep 2019

This panel AVERAGED 2 SEC teams in. In other words, HALF of the teams the panel collectively picked are from the SEC. Average for the Big Ten? ~0.7 (9/14 have OSU in, no other B1G teams mentioned). Opinion or agenda, this is a huge bias toward the SEC. Given that both the SEC and the B1G have the same number of undefeated teams at this point in the season, it is difficult to see the objective criteria behind this >2x difference, hence the reason why many here feel ESPN is pushing a pro-SEC agenda.

But ESPN doesn't matter because the selection committee isn't regionally biased or influenced by multiyear, multimillion-dollar media campaigns.
