I agree with this as well. The way the committee has the 2 teams ranked and the way their opponents are ranked, I just can’t see anyway OSU jumps Oklahoma without Oklahoma losing. And of course if Georgia wins that that just screws everything all to hell.

The way I see it, no matter what happens, if Ohio Stare wins Saturday night and finishes the season 12-1 Big ten champs with a massive win over a great Michigan team, I’m happy about this season. Do I want to see them get a shot at bama in the semi’s? You damn right!! You can’t win a natty if you don’t play for one. If things dont play out in their favor to make the CFP will I be happy with 12-1 big ten champs and a trip to Pasadena? Absolutely.

Considering how this season started going into fall camp, all the mid season media bullshit that kept dumping gas on the negative fire, to now with the potential of how it can finish, I’m proud of what this team Has positioned themselves for Saturday night.

I have to tend to agree with Stephen here. It’s always been said it’s suppose to the the 4 “best” teams and not the 4 most deserving. I don’t think anyone in the country could look at bama and say they’re not one of the 4 best teams in the country unless UGA just blows the doors off them Saturday, which I don’t see happening. Bama schedule hasn’t been great and I think much of the sec is very overrated outside bama and UGA. But despite the scheduling and everything in front of them the course of 12 games they’ve left no doubt and beat every team by atleast 20+ points. I’ll be rooting for bama just to play it safe to eliminate Georgia, and I think Bama will win. But if UGA wins a tight game, it absolutely will not surprise me if they put bama ahead of Oklahoma or Ohio state.

Roll Tide Roll! Ok cool, hookem lol

Comment 12 Nov 2018

I agree. I listened to heather dinich on the Barrett sallee show on espnu radio yesterday and she was talking about how horrible osu looked and had to win the game with punting and MSU turning the ball over. Gave no credit at all going on the road in cold weather and winning the game, by 20 at that. Sallee essentially said the same thing as he was going through his run down of each team and said osu barely hung on to beat MSU. I literally just laigh at it now. And of course they’re all in on Michigan and give no hope for Ohio state to win on the 24th. I’m ready to set back and watch the buckeyes crush another promising season for TTUN.

but to the original post, it was nice to see Urban fires up and look like he was having some fun and positive energy. MSU has issues on offense but a game like that may be just enough to give the D confidence moving forward and to play good ball

Comment 29 Oct 2018

I live in southern Ohio out back of Ironton. I don’t get to high school games like I used to but have been hearing a lot about Parker over the last several weeks. Anyone familiar with him and Portsmouth know if he’s any relation to JoJo Parker who played at Portsmouth back in the early 2000s? I remember some battles back then between loaded Portsmouth and Ironton teams. JoJo Parker was pretty incredible to watch. Curious if Taly was possibly his son or relative

I absolutely enjoy Ohio state football! Fall is my favorite time of year for many reason, Ohio state football being right there at the top. I think we can all admit that at times it’s frustrating to see the team underperform in certain regards, mainly the ones you listed. But I don’t view it as broken to take it so deep to heart that I let it cloud my enjoyment of the game and the program. Every time I’m able to be inside that stadium is a special experience. It, along with the football program itself, have drawn near to my heart as one of the things I love.

I’m older than some and not as old others as I set at 32, but overly the last several seasons I’ve learned to just enjoy the games for what they’re worth and accept and appreciate every win no matter how it comes. I’ve followed Ohio state football since I was old enough to remember. I grew up in the 90s when Michigan owned the rivalry and seen multiple national championship seasons dashed away at the end of the year. I used to take losses are hard and let it ruin my day. Of course I’m disappointed to see the team lose but I know I’m not as disappointed as the kids and coaches putting in the countless hours of work and preparation into each game to come up short. Enjoy the wins and move past the losses

Comment 14 Oct 2018

This 100%. I don’t think people are less inclined to wanna be at the games or support the team, but the overall price of tickets and the amount it cost to attend games is pressing for many. Sure you can show up on Saturday and take your chances with scalpers. I prefer to buy mine from a local who sells many sets throughout the year. Of course secondary market they’re more expensive than face value, but when you’re not alumni or have connections the face value are hard to find. Long story short when face value is I believe around $80-90 for that Minnesota game and you buy in advance to plan a trip you’re looking at $125 a ticket. That was a price quoted to me for a friend. Buy 2 tickets, drive 2.5 hours from southern ohio, but gas, parking, food, merchandise and you’ve spent $400 easy to watch them play an average team. Turn that into the Michigan game and $197 face value and you’re paying $400 a ticket for good C deck seats and crazy ass price for A deck. Next thing you know you can take your family to the beach for a week for what it cost to go watch Ohio state and Michigan play for 3.5 hours in the cold lol

Comment 14 Oct 2018

While I agree with anyone that there is some serious issues with the defense and weaknesses among the line, especially in run blocking, I tend to disagree that they can’t change and make an improvement.

Obvioulsy injuries to the defense, especially along the line are really showing up. I think the loss to Bosa is more glaring than most realized. The pass rush has been non existent at times sense he’s gone down. Not only is he a monster, but having him on the field opens up for more opportunities for chase, dremont and others. Getting everyone healthy and back hopefully in November for the stretch run will be key. To further what I was getting at, the 2014 defense really struggled at times as well. Even late into the season, week 11 at home against Indiana they played poor and got gashed by their running backs. They managed to find their footing and the defense played lights out in the 3 post season games. I’m not saying the team is 2014 or I expect a complete 180, but I’m not ruling out the possibility they put it all together, get healthy and play a solid 4 quarters each game rather than 1.5 or 2

Comment 12 Oct 2018

I agree with this! I will even say row 2 just enough to elevate over the support railing being in view while setting. The last several years I’ve had seats in C deck row 1 or 2 anywhere from the 20-30 yard lines on the home side and the view is exceptional!

If im in A deck I prefer to be in the mid to upper section just enough to still have a full view of the field but have the close intimate to the action feel

Comment 12 Oct 2018

For what it’s worth, the time of day doesn’t really change that much. I sat inside the shoe for OSU-Michigan game when it was high 20s low 30s, 25mph wind and snow, also sat inside the big house for OSU-Michigan game when the high that day was upper 20s. Both of those were noon kickoffs and obviously cold. Way I see it, when it’s that cold outside you’re gonna freeze your ass of regardless. Might as well do it under the lights in a hyped atmosphere lol.

I like the noon tradition, and I like that by 3:30 I know the outcome and just enjoy the rest of the day stress free. But I also know the intensity the big time night games bring and it would be nuts for a night Michigan game. As mentioned above, the 3:30-4:00 slot would be great too like in 06 where the game finished under the lights 

Comment 06 Oct 2018

A friend I went to high school with, we graduated in 04, was Michigan fan. He still to this day tries to rile me up and take his shots but the only thing he can ever say is something along the lines of being the most winningest program in history line. It irritates him to hell that he can’t get me tore up and something is usually said to him along the line that it was convenient to be a Michigan fan growing up when they had a lot of success against Ohio state, but since we’ve graduated it’s back fired and they haven’t even been relievent, not only to Ohio state but to all of college football lol. 

But he’s your typical bandwagon fan but has never anywhere near a game  and couldn’t tell ya much bore beyond harbaugh is coach and Shae Patterson is their QB

Comment 04 Oct 2018

This! If I’m at the house I love noon games. Only have a few hours to kill between waking up and kickoff. Game ends early and enjoy the rest of the day. As far as going to the games and the GameDay experience, I hate noon games as it’s just a mellow boring atmosphere outside of the Michigan game, and even it could be more electric played at 3:30 like in 06. I enjoy the 3:30 games later in the season and really enjoy being at night games minus driving 2.5 hours home after getting out of the stadium at midnight

Comment 02 Oct 2018

I was at that game and I will say the black out looked badass and it was pulled off far better than I expected. However, the atmosphere and intensity didn’t come close to matching what we watched Saturday night. Just another ho hum ordinary Ohio stadium crowd that should have been jacked for for a primetime night banger against penn state

Comment 02 Oct 2018

Well said, Scarlet_Fire!

I think this we’ll beyond the color scheme effect. Sure it looks cool when the whole stadium is color coordinated in sync, but it’s buying into the fact that this is a big time game and we’re gonna show up and beaver stadium and act like lunatics for 4 hours and make it hell on the opposing team. Ohio state can keep their fans in a scattered mixture of scarlet, gray, black, white or whatever be it attire you choose to wear that day. But damn it when the foot meets the ball get wild and make that place insane!

As mentioned I’ve sat in the shoe for many big games and be surrounded by folks setting down half ass clapping rather than being on their feet jacked making the atmosphere intense. If Ohio stadium could bring the juice every big game for 4 quarters like it did against Penn state in the 4th quarter last year, then it would rival what beaver stadium accomplishes for white out. Finally for once throughout that 4th quarter I told myself multiple times, this is what the shoe is supposed to be like!

Comment 01 Oct 2018

One bad game isn’t gonna affect his draft stock much in my opinion. And even his bad game was better than a lot of previous passing games in the pass. I think people really under estimate how tough of an environment it is to play in at penn state at night for the white out and how big of a deal it is to pull out a win, especially after being down 2 scores late and managing to engineer to long drives. He had a lot of help from Dobbins and his receivers, but that’s the point of having great skill players around you. Penn state brought pressure all night and wasn’t gonna give Ohio state the deep down field throws. The adjusted and beat them with screens short plays that the skill players could take advantage of in space. If anything I think Haskins helped himself because he played so poorly in the first half and bounced back in the second, kept his composure in a crazy ass environment and helped lead the team.

It was a learning experience no doubt for Haskins an he’ll be better for it. In his short time playing he’s helped engineer come from behind wins at Michigan and at Penn state. That’s pretty impressive in itself

Furthermore, the NFL drafts more so off of pure talent and potential than anything, which Dwayne has tons of both. That’s why I believe he’ll absolutely be a first round pick in next springs draft baring any crazy happenings

Comment 27 Sep 2018

It’s so fucking stupid that this is what the media/social media has come to. I don’t even know what to say anymore when people are reaching this hard and looking past the juvenile intent of the message of silence the penn state crowd and referencing mike Thomas #shhhh. I mean, come on! Lol

The comments too. Seriously people saying how Rome deaf osu is to put this out after the domestic violence scandal and a coach getting a slap on the wrist for covering up domestic violence which all know here there was never any cover up. Hell we still don’t know the extent of what’s been alleged in the first place. I get the jabs and meme taking their pokes, but full blown “omg I’m so pissed off outrage” is ridiculous. I’m not sure whether to me amazed or laugh at the ignorance.

Comment 21 Sep 2018

Honestly I’d like to see them poll most big time program coaches who are deep in the recruiting mix and see how many have text messages retained back 3 years ago or how many have their settings on delete after 1 year. I’d bet that the overwhelming majority are much like Meyer 

Comment 20 Sep 2018

I’ve said this from the get go when it was reported that his phones setting was on delete messages older than 1 year. I don’t have many contacts, maybe text 10 people regularly, and if I don’t delete messages after an extended time then storage issues occur which usually leads to slow processing on the phone as well. I’d imagine Urban has hundreds if not thousands of contacts. Past and present players and their family members, staff past and present, recruits from the next few recruiting classes and their parents, other coaches around the country. Not to mention his own family and friends. I’d imagine his phone stays blowing up and is loaded with mass amounts of text messages. I can’t iamgine a phone having the capacity to handle that many messages beyond a year. 

Moral of the story is the report left that part very vague and Ohio state didn’t take offer any clarification and Urban wasn’t able to until weeks later after national media ran their slew of opinionated articles reported as fact
