We fans are insecure no matter how good the Ohio State team is.

OL Coach Ed Warinner will probably be the new offensive coordinator (he was co-OC before). There will be a new quarterbacks coach; I've seen suggestions for Mississippi State's Brian Johnson. Beyond that, I don't know.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Chad Morris.||
Chad Morris was this preseason's hotshot coordinator. He just accepted the job at SMU, which just went 1-11.
Tom Herman's star is slightly brighter than Morris's, and his best job offer at the moment is Houston. He can do better (P5 school) if he waits.

I can't help but wonder what the conference's ratings would look like without Rutgers. Everyone else's ranking would be a little deflated, probably.
One thing about the top 40 teams to miss the postseason: 2005 Ohio State was barred from the postseason thanks to NCAA violations from the Jim O'Brien era. Discard that team, and only three good Big Ten teams in the last decade have missed the Tournament; not bad results.

The relationship between 11W and MGoBlog is strong; there has been all kinds of cooperation and crosspromotion before. It's not like anyone is going to sue this site, it's just insulting and ethically shitty for commenters to copy/paste entire articles.
The commenters at our site (I write at 11W) who go HURR MGOBLOG SUCKS all stink. Please don't be those guys' counterparts, y'all.

The youngest of the three siblings.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||No, he was the backup.||
He was in a position battle with Jacoby Boren for the starting center spot even before the injury (which happened in fall camp). It's not known what the injury was, but he re-aggravated it last week, leading to this. He didn't play any snaps, though.

It's not much of a disguise, to be honest.

You're going to be on a golf course in the summer. The worst you're going to get is a couple half-serious boos. Nobody is going to begrudge you a color scheme.

|45 weeks 2 days ago||Cardale Jones or JT Barrett||
Hi there- just popping in from 11W. The backup this year will be either Cardale Jones or J.T. Barrett.
Cardale Jones is a 6'5, 250-pound redshirt sophomore. He got the few snaps that didn't go to Miller or Guiton last year, and they were pretty much exclusively zone read. If Jones is in the game, playcalling will be run-heavy.
J.T. Barrett is a 6'1, 220-pound true sophomore. He's much more of a passer and a decent scrambler . He arguably looked better in spring practice, but Jones has more experience. I'd guess it will be Jones as the backup. If things get really strange, there's also true freshman Stephen Collier, who is one of the lowest-rated but most-liked members of the 2014 class.
There will be a huge drop off if Braxton Miller gets hurt; Guiton played far better than a typical backup last year. Because of that, we expect Miller to pass more to avoid taking hits.

As far as not being judgmental of MSU or OSU goes, the cat was out of that bag a while ago.

Not MSU. Akron State.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||I agree.||
To decry a lack of integrity or morals or some diabolical motive in everyone else's actions while ignoring one's own unprincipled actions is myopic and self-serving. This isn't really about the school, it's about fans trying to posture as though the school is somehow above the fray, that to play Touissant would sully the school's name.
There's quite enough of this gamesmanship as it is, and more colorful metaphors to describe this kind of "contest". But this kind of grandstanding is dumb and should stop.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Everyone else in the world is||
Everyone else in the world is worse than you, Michigan. You're the last bastion of purity. Commissar Hoke would never do something so base like to reinstate a player charged with breaking and entering before his legal status was resolved.
Keep defending all that's good and holy, and the rest of us will bask in your radiance.

It became one when Ohio State news was deemed not OT.

Ohio State certainly needs more receiving support. Accuracy and sack issues for Braxton Miller aside, the leading receiver(s) had fourteen catches each. God willing, Stoneburner will get twenty this year.
By the way, you're trying too hard at the anti-Ohio stuff.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Sorry about the knob bit. I||
Sorry about the knob bit. I missed that one while self-censoring the other insults in the initial draft.
I'm kinda disappointed about the difference in structure between this preview and the other previews, though. The general threat ratings for offense & defense and the weird prediction were fun. Couldn't the team be likened to somebody drunkenly mowing obscenities into a neighbor's yard or something?
|2 years 36 weeks ago||As always, context is useful.||
Clarke's OVI was his third arrest and Gambrell's domestic abuse arrest wasn't in question; thus, no caveats for them. This is Klein's second arrest on domestic abuse-like charges, but the case is still in dispute. He probably won't get off on it, but if he's found not guilty or the charges are dropped, maybe then he'd have to get back on the team.
I would remind you that it's harder to get back on the field after getting kicked off the team than after being indefinitely suspended. Well, unless you think there's no difference between those terms to Meyer, in which case you should say so and stop beating around the bush. Put the story above the actual content of the preview, make thinly veiled accusations about roster depth prioritization, and go full cynic.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Occam's Razor, man.||
At the time that ESPN filed these requests for information, they were digging for any and all info they could use in investigative pieces about OSU. Ohio State wanted to only give what they were legally compelled to give, so as to give ESPN less ammunition to use against it.
It doesn't even matter whether or not the emails would have resulted in major violations; ESPN writing more stories about OSU was reason enough for OSU to not want to accede.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||No, I think a thread about the photo is silly.||
We may as well have fun with it, I guess.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Actions do tend to develop reputations.||
For instance, making a buch of substance-free inferences about a candid photo may develop a reputation for reactionary dumbness.

Considering that we "won" the Terrelle Pryor sweepstakes, maybe Rich Rodriguez missing out on a running QB wasn't the worst thing ever.

(Full disclosure: I am an OSU fan. I promise not to bite.)
I do get what Michigan fans are going for with "Ohio". It shows disdain, and "Ohio" is a way to support Brady Hoke by adopting a quirk of his. Those are sufficient reasons to use it, but the idea that it drives us up a wall because we're irrationally insane (er, about this, anyway) is overstated. The comparison I'd draw is Texas A&M fans using "tu" and "teasips" to refer to Texas. Texas fans recognize it's a slight but don't really mind and think it's just their rivals being weird and all that. Goodness knows we've got our own weird terms (TTUN, M*ch*g*n, etc.) we use that you think less of us for; "Ohio" is another one of those terms. Also, we feel bad for Ohio U.
In summary, there's always a bat-guano 2% that takes offense to every slight ever, but I don't think "Ohio" is a big deal to most of us.
