    We've seen so little of these guys it's hard to guess what they are as QBs other than Urban's comments on Cardale being very good at times and very bad at other. :lol:

    motherfucker! this makes me pissed!

    the D wouldn't have seemed HALF so bad if they'd just given El Guapo the damn ball.

    And what would Urban's and Herman's response to this be? If they were asked I never saw their response?

    On Friday night in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl, the Buckeyes were outlasted in a down-to-the-wire thriller by the Clemson Tigers of the Atlantic Coast Conference. This loss coming after they had their undefeated season and national championship hopes crushed by the Michigan State Spartans in the Big Ten Championship Game.

    To say that the Ohio State team may be a little frustrated would probably be an understatement at this point.

    Actually, that’s more than an understatement, especially when you look at this absolutely destroyed whiteboard in the Ohio State locker room, post-game:


    Now we don’t know exactly who ravaged that poor piece of coaching equipment, but it’s not all that surprising neither, given the fact that many expected this team to be playing this Monday in Pasadena, not tonight in Miami.

    Maybe they can keep the remnants of this as motivation for next season?

    You know, thinking back, Braxton's best stretch as a QB in a Buckeye uniform (from the 2nd half of the Northwestern game through the Purdue game) also happened to be the weeks where it wasn't the Braxton Miller show, but the attack was started and balanced by Hyde getting enough carries to make the defenses think of stopping him first.

    Given the stable of RBs going forward, I really hope they realize they can hand the ball of 30 times per game and it'll make the offense light years better.

    Somehow I'd like to think that we'd be a 50/50 run - pass team until the game is no longer in doubt. But somehow we need to be good enough in the pass game to make that successful.

    It'll put less pressure on the defense, as well as, open up the play action. I think a number of folks on BP expressed the frustration of TH not putting the ball in El Guapo's hands at critical times in the BIG and the Orange, kudos to Ramzy for fully vetting the argument.

    I would guess "In Braxton we trust" right or wrong.

    In the excitement over the beginning of spring camp and the accompanying media blitz, it's easy to forget Ohio State lost the 2014 Orange Bowl to Clemson two months ago. But Clemson hasn't.

    Perhaps giving the Buckeyes a receipt for vandalizing Thomas Green Clemson's statue before the Orange Bowl, the Tigers marked the 40-35 win with a headstone commemorating OSU's painful defeat.

    It joins a number of other headstones in The Graveyard, a site between Clemson's practice field and the Jervey Athletic Center, where the Tigers have erected 20 other headstones for historic wins over ranked teams they considered special.

    Nothing screams "we're irrelevant" more than a lot of headstones commemorating wins.

    True. I take it as a compliment. Just means we are relevant.

    Agreed. I take it as every tombstone that is added to that yard is a grim reminder of how close they'll keep getting, yet coming up just short of winning the big one.

    West Virginia must have commemorated their bowl game with a steaming pile of dog shit.
