3 Reasons Ohio State Will Kick Ass This Season

Miller Time!

As we count down the final days before Ohio State’s first victory of the year, I’ve compiled 3 reasons the Buckeyes are sure to have a winning season.

1. Braxton Miller

The quarterback now knows Urban Meyer’s system and has really improved footwork since last season. Expect big numbers from the third-year starter as he goes for the Heisman again this year.

2. Urban Meyer

After a perfect 12-0 mark last year, Meyer has his team ranked number 2 in AP’s latest poll. The Buckeyes had their fair share of bullshit during this off-season, but the new Twitter user took it in stride handling each issue in his own ballsy manner.

3. No Bowl Ban

Although it’s clear who would’ve come out on top, the Buckeyes weren’t able to test themselves in the post-season last year because of the bowl ban. This year, that is all behind them. As The Notorious B.I.G. said, “The Sky’s the Limit.”

Yes! I knew I’d be able to reference a Biggie song on The Troof at least one time.

Gordon Gee was the face of The Ohio State University…twice. He first held office from September 1, 1990 to January 2, 1998. He left Ohio State for Brown University, then to Vanderbilt before returning to the Buckeye State for his latest tenure.

Gee was once named Best University President by Time Magazine. Unfortunately the successful president had a sense of humor unlike the rest of the world. Comments about the University of Norte Dam and Catholics in early December of last year went public a couple of weeks ago. And when running one of the largest universities in the country, remarks even the slightest bit offensive can decay one’s reputation. His current tenure will end on the first of July.

I can’t say he was forced out by university officials. I can say he had so much left he wanted to accomplish. Responsible for pushing the university to new heights, he will remain an important part of OSU history.

Carrie Ghose of BizJournals reported last week that Gee is house hunting in the Short North. Columbus will not lose the colorful bow-tied president so easily after all.
