    Ross Bjork (OSU AD)

    I'm not offended, you're all good. I personally think that Carter can be a capable OSU President, but that I understand why some academics would flag his lack of a PhD as an issue - it's a question worth asking. For example, Carter's never been in charge of a research-heavy university. While at...

    Ross Bjork (OSU AD)

    I haven't made any claim against Carter's ability to lead - not sure why you think I did. I just think you can praise Carter without describing the hard work it takes to get a PhD as a "cool LinkedIn acronym after their last name". A President of a top-50 public university and R1 research...

    Ross Bjork (OSU AD)

    I think you can praise Carter's credentials and leadership experience without disparaging the credentials of what other academics have achieved. Is having a PhD a requirement to preside over a university? Same thing as asking if being a lawyer is a requirement to run a law firm. Or, if being...

    OL Coach/Run Game Coordinator Justin Frye (Official Thread)

    Calling them good buddies seems a bit of a stretch though, eh? Addazio got hired from Temple to Boston College and brings a young staff alongside, including Day and Frye. That happens in most places with a coaching transition. Lots of stuff happened before and in between. Then, Day and Frye...

    DE Eddrick Houston (Official Thread)

    Oof. It would be absolutely brutal to lose Houston on top of already losing Scott and not getting in on Williams.

    QB Discussion Thread, Cotton Bowl and 2024

    I think we need a depth QB on the transfer portal, but I feel happy with Brown, Lincoln, and (possibly) Noland contending for the starting spot. I liked McCord but he was not clearly "The Guy".

    QB Kyle McCord (transfer to Syracuse)

    I'm surprised, but this seems like something we need to expect from such a competitive QB room and a transfer portal with big NIL $ and development opportunities. Either outright win the job, or be vulnerable to being pushed. And given the 2024 Buckeyes (and Day in particular) would have as much...

    2024 Depth Chart Projection

    Good read. Depressing to see the amount of players considering leaving early or not return - kind of staggering actually!

    HC Ryan Day (2019 B1G Media COY)

    I think about this a lot in the last few seasons. Michigan has been getting older players, and OSU has been staying pretty young. And that has consequences - that's been the BYU strategy for a long-time. That age disparity also results because our players tend to declare early, which...

    WR Emeka Egbuka (All B1G, All-American)

    I've quite liked him as a WR2 and can see that he might be gone, but I'm not all that sure it'll be in the 1st round (although he has the talent) - he didn't quite dominate enough games comparable to other clear-cut 1st round WR in recent drafts.

    tOSU vs. ND, from an Irish Fan

    It would be interesting to see how successful (or not) the jet sweeps have even been in the past 5+ years. Or, alternatively, whether there's any knock-on effects if they open up the middle or something. As near as I can tell, they are mostly failures. I've never seen them do anything better...

    HC Ryan Day (2019 B1G Media COY)

    Exactly. I think what it is, to me, is that people are already at their conclusion of "Day ain't the guy" and aren't really engaging in a conversation anymore. The fact is, this was a top-10 win on the road with a new QB and new OL and folks are just focused on everything else. The pragmatics...

    HC Ryan Day (2019 B1G Media COY)

    I think some folks are in a bit of a toxic spiral on this forum as it relates to Day. There were mistakes yesterday (short yards on 3rd/4th downs, jet sweep was awful) but also, the Buckeyes came away with a hard-fought win on the road against a top-10 opponent. One of either Day or Freeman...

    Youngstown St. at tOSU, Sat. 9/9, 12pm EST, BTN

    I think some folks need to chill a bit. I feel that coming into this season (1) most folks were prepared for some growing pains as we just turned over a ton of the offense and team experience, especially at OL and QB and (2) many of those folks acknowledged it was important to build up towards...

    Pretty cool Aztec-Buckeye connection! Hope he can come in and contribute.
