Awesome...The Buckeye haters (you know Wolverines)are drawn to the Bucks website to see what the real football buzz is all about. I love it!! On their website they just have stories about Central Michigan and Western Michigan and even a story about some little kid winning a art contest. That's about all they have to write about these days.

When all of the Bucks get healthy, they are going to be very deep in talent. Remember OSU's 2002....a bunch of no names won the National Title. This has the feel of ANOTHER great and exciting year. GO BUCKS!!

AH HA HA HA, oh man, is this guy for real??? You know what? If my team hadn't beaten the Buckeyes in 2,105 days, lost to Appalachian Who, lost to Toledo, went 3-9, missed a bowl completely, and had a raging ddouche bag as a coach, I'd want to switch teams too.

Hey now let's be nice.. basic English vocabulary is difficult! Have pity on the guy. He obviously never attended a university, so making poorly thought out, "12-year-old-let-loose-on -youtube" style insults at those who do is his only outlet.

BTW, you live in Indiana, maybe you should root for the Hoosiers. They'll probably have a better year anyhow. Plus their coach isn't a ddouche.

Maybe he means team trader, because he traded teams? Nah, he's probably just an idiot.

No he means day trader. . . he is basically saying that Boren was behind the financial crisis

Benedict Arnold was a traitor.

George Soros is a trader.

Justin Boren is a really smart kid.

It's on....more than anything, this week of no cell phones and only football has made these guys come together and realize that they can come out and prove to the world that we don't need big names, just a lot of heart and determination to be a force this season. The youth of this team is refreshing, and we should see some fireworks this year. Bob, you are right, this is very reminiscent of our 2002 team, not saying they will win a championship but could put themselves in a situation to do so. I hope they come out physical, emotional, and they run over everyone in their path. Let's see some blood on our jerseys, and make USC scared to come to Columbus by putting it to Navy. We want to do to USC what they did to us last year, send them away on a 4 hour flight across the country wondering what happened. USC fans, you can start your bashing, but I am not saying it WILL happen, just that there is a chance and I would love to see it. Oh, and watch out for Sabino, from what I hear he could be a force on the defensive front.

Generally, telling for someone to "break a leg" is considered a wish for good luck. And, Dominos Pizza was founded by a UM alum. To which school are you referring?? Your post makes no sense.

2002...that would be great! God I hope they can pull it off but this years schedule is harder than 2002's. Krenzel didn't make too many mistakes and wasn't afraid to tuck and run when needed. If Pryor doesn't fumble then he's golden this year. I think the defense will be special. Receivers were no names in 2002 and this years group is fast, fast, fast. Biggest concern for me...Bollman. I just don't trust him as the offensive coordinator. We'll never know how last years tilt with USC should of gone. Ray Malauga was quoted after the game as saying, "They didn't show us anything we hadn't seen on tape." The three senior linebackers just sat back there, read the formations, remembered tape and called it off to the rest of the team. USC probably could of beaten the Detroit Lions if they knew 95% of the plays coming at them. When you give away the game plan no amount of talent can overcome equal talent. I dearly hope Tressel had some intense talks with Bollman.

I hear that! Only thing is, we WILL beat USC this year. They are all too inexperienced. However, our own returning starters are in prime positions to help the new starters find their place. We will CRUSH USC, and their false pride.

10 days from now we will show Navy respect, but then we will make an example of them to give our boys the taste of blood. The Midshipmen are just an appetizer.

Justin Boren seemed really smart when he published tales of a drunken weekend adventure on his facebook page. He also seems like a weenie for bailing on the Michigan program because Rich Rodriguez prefers his linemen to be fast rather than fat. We'll see how it goes but until he proves himself on the field I'm withholding praise. Alex Boone talked a great game and looked great on paper but he was a creampuff on the field.

As for "hell week", talk is cheap. So is the opening game against Navy. Mop the floors with USC and I'll be giddy with excitement but don't forget to sustain that edge for the entiure season. Don't be posting any 17-14 wins over Purdue and expect anybody to be impressed. Penn State and USC are the only teams that seem to pose a challenge to Ohio State this year. So pardon me if I take all the training camp talk with a grain of salt. It's not like the players are going to say camp was easy or the team is fractured. The proof will be found in the final tally of wins and losses.

Let's just say I won't be bettign big on the Buckeyes. They've done a lot of yapping over the past few years only to get thumped by the one or two good teams they've faced.

Shut up and play, boys. I'm tired of the lip service.

I find it funny for all these haters to take the time to read a article about a team they don't like, and then take 3 paragraphs to explain why they are so much smarter than everyone else. Nothing more constructive you can do with your time Sparky?

i'm friends with some of the players and they were active on facebook all through "hell week"

..they made such a big deal about how there were no electronics but i'm questioning the truthfulness of that

any thoughts on that?
