No reason to get bent out of shape, he's just patting himself on the back. Urban has been trying to get this defense installed since he's been at Ohio State, but they just now got the right coaching staff in place to implement it.
There's 6 individual championships in that picture between those two great Buckeyes!
True fans of college athletics know who the best collegiate athlete was. I'm not taking away anyone else's outstanding accomplishments; but to win 4 individual championships, lead your team to a national championship and win the Hodge Trophy speaks for itself.
Hope to see you in Rio representing the USA in 2016 Logie Bear!
Antoine Winfield, Big Hank or Nuuuuuge would be my candidates.
It's tough to choose one out of those three, gun to my head I'd take Winfield.
Stieber was actually the 4th person to accomplish that (Smith, Sanderson, Dake and Stieber).
Great year for the Bucks!
Where did Dardanes beat Stieber in freestyle? I know they wrestled at the US Open and Stiber won 4-4 on criteria.
In any case, I expect Logie Bear to run roughshod over the field and get that 4th title!
Snyder is too good to sit. He has a win over Kilgore from Kent State who was a NCAA Champion and two time finalist. He's also split matches with J'den Cox from Mizzou who was the NCAA Champ this year. Snyder and the other freshmen are potential all-Americans this year, if coach Ryan wants to win a team title, this is the year.
1. Troy Smith

I don't buy his excuse at all, his friend even moved out of the way for him when he noticed York sizing the kid up. If Hoke lets him stay on the team after this, I will have lost what little respect I have for TTUN.
That video is pretty damning.
Great article Ramzy! This really hits home for me, I was born and raised in Ohio where I lived for the past 27 years. I recently took a job in Florida, dying to get out of Ohio... And boy do I miss it now. It took me leaving to fully appreciate what being an Ohioan is, it's something that stays with you forever and something I'll always appreciate.
As a Cincinnati native, I've been to Nippert many times. It's a very neat stadium how it is built into the actual university, a great venue for highschool playoff games. However, the few times Nippert sells out for a UC game it's awful. Easily the least fan friendly stadium I've ever been to... On the plus side they do serve alcohol.
This thread... 11W Hall of Fame!
Ah, good thinking Gene.
All I can do right now is just shake my head, Gene is lucky we have the fan base we do.
You hit the nail on the head Ramzy. I've been saying this to my friends who are "SEC" fans for quite some time. That's right, SEC fans, not a school but the entire conference.
Buckeye Nation will miss you El Guapo! Damn it this still pisses me off that Herman forgot #34 late with games on the line. As great as Miller is, he tends to get those freshman happy feet and completely indecisive with the ball. Call 'em out Ramzy, maybe Herman and Meyer will listen... They overthink things sometimes. I hate to say it and will probably get DV'd for it, but Tress would've managed those games a lot better than the current staff did.
Great write up Ramzy. Just need to take care of business against that damn Michigan State team. Fitting way to end the BCS era for the Buckeyes... Redemption baby.
Well done Ramzy, spot on column!
I knew we threw the ball less in Champaign, but I never realized it was that much less. I remember the 2011 game and laughed at the diversified offense that the Walrus called and the fact the Illini still couldn't stop what they knew was coming.
Excellent piece as usual Ramzy. I didn't know the history behind that cheer, so thanks for sharing.
His former position coach is in my class right now, said he's a really hardworking kid (goes without saying). He also said he was nerve wracking talking to Urban about him personally when OSU was trying to get him in as a preferred walk on. It really is a small world. Gotta love breaking down the wall to Cincy! Go Bucks!
Mo' money, mo' problems.
Always look forward to Tuesday, good read Ramzy.
Will this mess finally be coming to an end?!
Great write up Ramzy! Pretty excited for B1G media days, but can't it be football season already?
Saw this story the other day, very classy move by Hoke. This helps show why this is the greatest rivalry in all of sports, even with all the animosity, both sides maintain a level of respect to each other. Someone noted it earlier, but Bo receiving a standing ovation after his passing at the Shoe further drives the point home. Somewhere Woody and Bo are smiling right now, until that November Saturday anyway!
