What's interesting, and not in the articles, is what was Tate promised (or damn near promised) by Miami.  Did he disappoint in practice, did Jarren do the unexpected, or was there some trickery in the 'recruiting?'

I'm bummed... Miami plays on Aug 24 (a week before everyone else), and well, it's less enthralling for Buckeye fans.  All the best...

I find all this recruiting coverage astonishing... I was at OSU from '00 (cooper's last year) thru 2005.  OSU football was, like today, bigger than an outsider could imagine... and yet, following recruiting just wasn't a thing for most of the, even diehard, fans.

The internet (like 11W) and outlets (like ESPN) have made this a 24/7 365 story...

I just wonder what recruiting will be in another 15 years.  Will we look back to 2019 and say, 'wow, recruiting coverage today is massive compared to 2019'?

I get it... if you picked a modern day 'cut off point' for modern football like 1946 or 1951 or 1990 or whatever, records would be different.

For a comprehensive list of ALL OSU's opponent: https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/9_Results.pdf (pg 14)

In 1892 OSU played, and mightily defeated, 'Dayton YMCA'

Back in days of College Football's wild wild west phase when players died (seriously, 19 deaths in 1905 alone) and rulebooks varied from town town to town...

Heck, in 1916, John Heisman at Georgia Tech, in a deliberate effort to run up the score, scheduled a game against a team that cancelled their football program the previous year (Cumberland) and soundly defeated their makeshift squad by, a record, 222-0.

This is a feat so unbelievably inconceivable, I had to verify on Wikipedia myself.

Then, just for verification, verified on michigan’s actual website.

He didn’t specify if he meant Harbaugh or Tressel… The coaching styles are more similar than different.

Ironically, this would've sufficed for an OSU spring circa 2009.

Harbaugh and Tressel both had good teams which featured a commitment to the run and a strong D that were obliterated by Urban Meyer.

Comment 29 Oct 2017

Funny... I've seen the 11W poll about who's OSU's biggest 'likely loss' amongst remaining teams as well as an SBNation story
stating, "Ohio State still has to play Iowa, Michigan State, and Michigan, but there isn’t a team left on its schedule capable of putting up points in bunches like Penn State can."

Has everyone forgotten about Illinois and the (I guess at one point in history) coveted Illibuck trophy?

If OSU wins @ Iowa and MSU and Illinois loses the next two games, then OSU will have as many B1G wins (7) this year as Illinois will have in JT Barrett's career (2014 - present).

The caption said 'It's a bad year to be a Husker'

It's really a bad era... Looking less and less likely every year they will every recapture their former glory of the 70's to 90's when they won five titles.

Comment 11 Oct 2017

Assuming a huge lead at half time (I know, it's not certain) how long until JTB is pulled for Haskins?  And, will Burrows get any reps or is it time to groom Dwayne as the solid #2 QB?

ps -- It will happen... there will be a day when Buckeyes stop referencing the 2011 Joe Bauseman meltdown. But when?

Comment 28 Sep 2017

Which QB is more accurate 8+ yards beyond the line of scrimmage?

Which QB would you want under center on a crucial 3rd and 15?

Be honest!
