Further Thoughts on Tony Alford.. They’re All Good

Well, well. It’s “officially” official; Ohio State has a new running back coach who also has some recruiting chops.  The agreement of Coach Tony Alford to move from (similar responsibilities) at Notre Dame to Ohio State is a solid hire.  Jerry Emig confirmed what we’d suspected, for a few days, that Urban Meyer intended to […]

Ohio State (Officially) Gets Their Man: Tony Alford On Board as Running Backs Coach

2015 NLOID: Quick Reaction

Like most/many/some of you I followed the college signings quite closely. [OK, I was contractually obligated to do so, but that isn’t the point.] This is really the only day I follow this stuff; in terms of the actual recruiting and the verbal commitment processes, I leave that to others with more interest and capability.

Back For Seconds:Ohio State Over Oregon

I have a few additional thoughts about Ohio State’s win over Oregon in the National Championship Game. You can get a knee-jerk recap here, or a much more enjoyable recap, here.

OSU vs Oregon: That Was Then, This Is Now

Yes, I think we’re all familiar with the caveat of “Past results do not guarantee future performance”. Or we should be. We went through pre-game chatter 5 year ago prior to the 2010 Rose Bowl between Ohio State and Oregon. Of course, it was very pronounced then, since the media was pumping this as New […]

Buckeyes, ‘Bama, And Bowl Thoughts

Well, well, well. Ohio State beat Alabama and is now playing for the National Championship against Oregon. There has been plenty of digital ink spilled after this game, so I’ll hold my comments to, not quite a minimum, but far less than I usually do. But I will compensate with some thoughts about the 2014-2015 […]

My Kingdom For a Quarterback

.. OK, maybe not a kingdom. How about a franchise? No? How about a couple of draft picks? Most mornings, I’ll go down to the corner store to get a cup of coffee and shoot the breeze with Tom, one of the clerks. The breeze-shooting generally centers on sports. One of Tom’s “pearls” is that […]
