    No problem, just don't let it happen again!!!! Or else I am going to make Scarlet take the Super away from your name! LOL, just messing!

    How can a coach do that to his team though!? I just don't get it.

    Haha! Nooo! I'd love to keep my "Super"ness intact at any costs!! =]

    This is the style of coaching I tend to not agree with. IMO.. a team should play game-by-game. No looking too far into the future and preparing yourselves too much for upcoming games and then completely giving up on the one that is smack-dab in your face. ESPECIALLY against a highly ranked opponent. Rankings to me are strictly for the system and the fans. The teams themselves shouldn't concern themselves with it and just play every game they are told to play and play to the best abilities. Did Stanford just give up and concern themselves with only getting on with their conference play (I have no idea if they are in the same one as USC) and rotate their whole lineup around? NO! They stuck in there and managed to pull of the big one! Same with App St. They hung in there even when it seemed like they had given up the lead for good only to come back and cause possibly the biggest upset in the history of college football! As a coach you should be invigorating your players and motivating them to play hard for EVERY game. Giving them the message that you are about to get spanked so let's give up and not even make the attempt to protect our dignity is probably the WORST thing you could ever do as a coach.

    Same with any dog that has won! It is ridiculous to shoot yourself in the foot, and just give up. How would you feel as a recruit knowing the coach at your new school, concedes games long before they are even played? That is garbage!

    What gets me is, what kind of message is the coach sending to his players? Granted this could be some screwed up way the coach is using to snow us all and secretly is using it as motivation for his team (highly doubt it though).

    Even then, what kind of image is the coach portraying to potential recruits reading the article? If I'm a HS player looking to play in the next level in the MAC, forget about considering Kent State when their coach would rather mail it in rather than try to win the game.

    Also if I'm going to this game and I paid 62 bucks for a ticket to the game, I'd feel cheated considering one team is not playing to win.

    Exactly, I hope this is the last time we play KSU for a while, at least while this schmuck is still there.

    I just hope this game doesn't effect how we play against MSU the following week. We can't afford let downs or poor play get in the way of a real grind.

    Exactly, we need to be A1 the rest of the way, including this Sat. We NEED to be ready to kick some serious butt!

    Just score 40 in the 1st half and take the starters out and let the backups toy with Kent State's scrubs... will allow me to get to the golf course earlier in the afternoon.

    We might be able to get 40 in the 1st qtr, if his first team is only playing an NFL pre-season like 2 or 3 series.

    what are the injuries from today. I heard something about anderson russel being hurt. and possibly lauranitis too. I am not sure what i heard, but when i turned on my radio, i heard the announcers saying that russel was having such a great year and it looks like he got hurt. and they said little animal had a pad on his leg on the sideline and they said that they werent plying because they didnt want to have further injuries. if oyu hear anything, let me know.

    Brandon Saine is killing KSU today. He's OSU's leading rusher and receiver.

    Congrats to Hartline for making the record books today. Longest punt return in Ohio State history, 90 yards.

    I was pleased to see all reserves in on offense early in the 3rd quarter. I want our guys to have plenty of rest now that the rest of our schedule gets tougher. Did Saine look like an All-American today or what?

    Yeah no kidding. 2 weeks in a row we get screwed on a late score. Oh well, we know our first team defense hasn't given up any points in the last 10 quarters......the defense as a whole has only given up 43 points for the season.

    We have actually given up just 46 points as a team. That's ridiculous! They said that was the lowest total since like 1977!
