So looks as though they'd have:

2014

A playoff caliber center, an oft-injured but near-pro-bowl-when-healthy ILB, a starting quality running back, and a super bowl winning CB

2015

A  bunch of injuries.

2016

Defensive Player of the Year, best rookie WR, and a solid DT. 

So it reads to me as though 2014 would be way ahead, 2015 would be behind, and 2016 would be *light years* ahead of what they actually got. I'll reserve judgment on 2017, but... man.

Agreed. Penn State was quality most years, Iowa had some good ones, Michigan was a real blue blood, Wisconsin had a couple beastly years...

Tressel took us to 3 national championship shots, won 1, lost 1, got blown out 1.

Urban has taken us to 2 playoff shots, won 1, got blown out 1.

Don't have to insinuate what I think you are to come up with reasons to dislike Gene Smith.

I love that Gene Smith has hired winning coaches in a *ton* of sports. I hate that he has doubled down on the corporatization of college football, that he doesn't like the Band, that he loves the soulless Schottenstein and wants to tear down St. John's, that he will sell out to absolutely anyone who gives the university money up to and including wanting to move The Game and allowing custom uniforms in The Game if it pays enough.

But, as I said at the start -- he's hired a ton of winning coaches. So I can respect the dude for that.

When I got into lifting it was tempting as hell. It's much safer than people think as long as it's done carefully/not to excess, and the gains to your progress are literally huge. Literally double my progress to looking like a greek god instead of a geek? What's not to like?

If I could just go to my doctor and say "I want a clean plan for cycling through my next 6 months of workouts" and do the whole thing legally and safely I'd be on it in a heartbeat.

Re: 911

Seriously, people. We have cell phone with contact lists. Put the damn local *non* emergency numbers in your cell.

Columbus: 
(614) 645-4545

There are similar numbers for all of the suburbs just a web search away. These are what you should call if there's something in the middle of the freeway, a non-injury accident, some crazy dude weaving in and out of traffic, etc.

So question for the room -- Should Zach Smith's seat be a little warm?

We've had a few good receivers come out of Ohio state recently, but does anyone else feel like the top to bottom technical development has been lacking?

Every Michigan fan I've talked to remembers this game entirely differently than I do. They say it was a close fight that they lost on a bogus targeting call. I remember it was a butt-whooping that they clawed back into a respectable score on a couple lucky breaks/mistakes on our side. But I was never afraid they were going to win after the first half.

I'm curious what a win probability graph would look like for the game.
