    They asked Wilkins the same question and Wilkins said he would prefer to focus on Bama.

    You don't even have to graduate from TL Hanna HS to know that telling a reporter that the team routinely grabs the opposing teams junk and that Wilkins just got a little more aggressive than the typical junk grab is not an ideal response for putting a story to bed and will in fact pour gas on a what was already a smoldering fire.

    Stupid comment by Ben but the media will find something else to pretend to be outraged about in a few days.

    But Bama, Louisville, and OU let rapists and women beaters on their team. I agree, Boulware needs a filter, but you have to put things into perspective. Unfortunately, it was the worst possible timing for him to make those comments.

    Who the fuck cares? I wanted Jadar Johnson to calm his rhetoric before the Ohio ST game and I was dead wrong. Let Bouleware punch these bitches in the taint meat all night until they swell til they can't shit on Tuesday. I don't care as long as we win.

    Agree. I was already tired of hearing about it and now the media seems to have doubled down, instead of covering more interesting aspects of Clemson's trip to the natty

    Raekwon Mcmillman going pro.

    Feels pretty good to have owned his, Carl Lawson's, Mont Adam's, and Dalvin Cook's teams this year. Maybe we'll get a shot at Gary next year

    Yes I'm petty.

    Michigan loses too much to be good enough to play us. They had 18 or so senior starters and lose a few juniors

    Clemson has been pretty underwhelming most of the season considering their preseason hype.

    To me they just feel like FSU in 2014, I wouldn't be shocked if they get blown out by whoever they play in the semi-final if they dont choke to Va Tech (which is entirely possible)

    This is pre-Fiesta Bowl

    Tyquan Lewis on being recruited by Clemson; pending NFL decision
    Ohio State DE Tyquan Lewis talks about being recruited by Clemson, his upcoming decision of whether to turn pro or not and more.

    How did that 31-0 and watching Clemson lift the Natty taste Lewis?
    He was c/o 2013...so is 0-2 vs Clemson
    Suck our orange national championship dick

    Clemson matchup?
    BuckeyeCOTA
    • I would love to kick Clemson's ass! I hate that Woody lost to them and lost his job, then Braxton lost to them. I go to Myrtle Beach every year with family and see all the Clemson flags and I can't say a word besides our recent NC. It would be nice to have bragging rights but I thought we would match up poorly against them before watching tonight's game,the more I watch tonight I see a defense with holes and see a couple turnovers from Deshaun Watson. I believe we matchup very well and believe with a good offensive game plan and our defensive we can beat anyone. Let's see if Clemson does not blow this. That's a big "if" on offensive game plan but believe Urban with come out with an aggressive game plan against them. I also believe we can make Clemson's defensive line tired with tempo they have some big boys that are good but believe they will tire out throughout the game. Mickey will have our boys ready for the stretch just like 2014 when he made everyone lose 5 pounds to face Oregons tempo. He might make them gain 5 lbs for Bama. Also It looks like Clemson struggles with QB run and that would definitely be good for us the way we have run JT lately. Go Bucks. Hopefully Wisky continues to shut up Ped State.

    • I think we can handle them because they are not as quick because so big. Now they are quick for 300 plus but not the quickest, don't get me wrong but I just feel we will get things fixed and can matchup well. Based off the way V Tech is playing them tonight. I haven't watched them very much but was very nervous before watching them tonight. Wishful thinking.

    • Revenge! No way Urban loses to them again.

    Clemson strikes me as a entitled group to be honest. Lead by their QB and proved it as such with his latest comments about being the best player in the country. They're talented we know that, but the issue is so do they.

    I think we get the sloppy, careless, and entitled group that they've been all year and win the damn game.

    I'm thinking OSU 34 Clemson 27

    The only downside to winning the National Championship is that the complete ass whooping of OSU doesn't get more attention.

    I think my favorite part about that picture is that the person had so much confidence in Clemson they did it with almost 6 minutes left to go in the game.

    Never heard of Urban doing that before. A guy with multiple national championships should know better. What's his deal? Depth issues? That's soft as fuck. I mean, Christ, we were hitting our QBs.

    Was reading random Deshaun stuff getting hyped for the game tonight and saw this gif:



    Watch the double team block that Deshaun follows. They drove that DT back like 8 yards :haha:

    Last week we wrote about Clemson's constant rotating of its wide receivers and how integral that's been to the Tigers making game-changing plays in tight affairs.

    We wondered now much opposing defensive coaches might try to rotate their corners more in reaction to this.

    Here was Ohio State CB coach Kerry Coombs yesterday:

    “I truly believe this, and I know you guys always think I’m kidding: I think fast, fresh corners are the most effective way to go. We played a game last year where a team ran three straight vertical Go’s with three fresh guys on one (corner). And that’s a tough way to go. So our plan is to play and have fresh corners on the field all the time.”

    Fascinating stuff.
