PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
22 days until the Middies arrive.
Cute. I hope they deliver. I certainly expect them to, but it's not my opinion that matters, it's theirs.
Oh deal GOD please beat USC. The Buckeyes have single handedly dragged the conference name through the mud for so long please at least beat USC this year.
How about all those teams that can't beat the Buckeyes or anyone else? What have THEY done for the conference's reputation lately?
*Suspects "anonymous" is an Indiana fan who needs other B10 teams to make his team look less like one of the worst teams in college football.
I'm really excited for the season, but I worry that EDSBS will take this and run with it. See, 'Deliverance' was already a movie.
Christ, that's awesome. GO BUCKEYES! CRUSH USC! I'm serious, their players are human just like you. Destroy them!
I agree. I can already hear them "squeel like a pig boy!"
boren hurt in practice today - out three weeks.
Sorry, I meant:
Is this the year? Freshman QB coming to C'bus in week 2. Day game at Beaver Stadium. We could wind up with another shot at Tebow of Nazareth.
If I had to bet, I'd say 11-1, Rose Bowl vs. Cal. I think USC's offense may end up too much for our young DB's and LB's. Carroll can plug anyone into the QB spot and that D is going to force Pryor to throw. The season really is on TP's shoulders.
USC vs UF MNC
sorry to go off topic here, but i was watching a preseason game (replay?) just a minute ago between the ravens and the redskins, and troy smith came in to play as the #2 qb. i watched two series, and nothing really happened but i thought i might add that the ravens have done a poor job with him. all of troy's passes, except for a 35 yard completed pass were incomplete but touched the receivers hand(s) (3 should have been caught, and 1 was too high in my opinion..still touched the receivers hand, though). i realize they have flacco, pretty good qb, but i think the ravens' offense stinks something awful. anyway, if i were the browns i would have gone after or drafted troy smith when there was the chance (of course, this is the browns on draft day....), and even if i didn't draft troy, i would have gone after him through a trade. i would have ditched derek anderson (he's had his chances) and picked smith up. that would have ended qb controversy with quinn as the #1 and troy learning the offense.....then i would evaluate both if quinn didn't get the job done.....but then again, who the hell can help the browns?
I never understood why Troy didn't play, he looked great for a rookie. The NFL is in love with 6'5 pocket passers, period. He needs to get out of Baltimore, I wish the Bengals would go get him.
Bengals offered Vick 2 yr. deal, according to Foxsports
i absolutely agree. no chance in baltimore....get out now, troy!
Why wouldn't the Browns be interested in Derrick Brooks?
surely they would, but i haven't heard/read anything and can't give an explanation for why they would not pick him up.....is there a history of injuries? a salary cap issue? or the fact that he is an aging veteran.
iball, he was supposed to be the starter last year until he got deathly ill. They didn't want Flacco to start as a rookie, but it payed off. "The Debacle" is what killed Troy. I was talking about it at the barbershop today.
Because he didn't play for the Jets.
It also didn't help that he skipped the combine and showed up for his pro day about 10 lbs overweight and out of practice. Part of me is really sort of curious how Tressel let that happen.
USC is over-rated this year, we will bw playing them in the Rosebowl and Florida will be playing Texas for the national title (what it should have been last year).
Wil not to quibble with you but USC consistently has top recruiting classes (like us) so I'm sure they have a pretty decent squad. Lest we forget the debacle in LA last year, I'm going to withold my judgment on USC until Sept. 12th. We'd all be wise to do the same. I think for many people OSU is just as much of a question mark as the Trojans anyway.
Make all the movies U want - this will not do squat. Same d-linemen that
got shoved around last year vs USC will again this year. OSU hangs for a 1/2 then experiences another defeat.
Team will be lucky to get to 10 wins -
uh huh, and michigan will hang around for 4 minutes on nov. 21.
team will be lucky to get to......ah hell, i won't be that mean to ya.
Its called the "banquet circuit", a 2 week journey of Heisman celebration. Complete with buffet. I heard he carried the thing with him around C'bus.
...don't worry about it.... Boren is getting 3 weeks rest and giving some other guys reps... he is ready and if a game were held today he would be playing... good thing--he has been nasty by all reports and can use the rest!
Troy had a bad break... he got sick and was hospitalized with a severe tonsil infection last year.... Ravens were forced to start Flacco and the rest is history. The job was his last year.... he will get his chance somewhere else-- I think the Ravens are featuring him in the pre-season as trade bait and will Keep Flacco and John Beck (Cam Cameron drafted him in Miami when he was Head Coach, and he still loves him).
Some team, somewhere is gonna need a starter and Troy will get his shot, he has impressed in Baltimore, won alot of support among team members (by reports) and has been a model citizen.
I'll take the 10 wins over the 5 Dick Rod gets this year... shut it and take a walk bung hole. OSU won 42-7 last year.... this year we go for 50.
........just spoke to a friend who is a Surgical Nurse at OSU hospital... my friend spoke to one of the Orthopaedic Doctors who saw Boren--- it is a very minor sprain and if the USC game were tomorrow, he would be cleared to play. The staff has decided to let him rest the knee so that he doesnt make the sprain worse. This is a very minor injury and would not even cause him to miss a beat if the season were in full swing.
That video was just retardly awesome.. kitchel is the man
Troy Smith Pre Season Highlights
browns could have troy and ted ginn right now.
Great video of Troy. He will get his chance with some team.
Hope we get Big Ten officials for the game against USC - didn't we have PAC 10 out west?
We need a season like 2006 - pull out all the stops with TP and please Coach Tressell no vanilla season where all the play calling is crap - let it fly.
Anybody know what the deal with Boren's injury is? I saw in the PD he was expected to be out for three weeks! Not good.
He's too hurt to practice, but should be ready for Navy.
Who else watched the game last night and hoped that they give up on the Quinn & Anderson experiment and pick up Smith in free agency next year? :)
im starting to think that im a masochist because of how i like to torture myself by watching the browns and other ohio sports teams.
cleveland browns - 0 is the number of touchdowns scored in....shit i lost count.
cincinnati bengals - uhh, no, i won't go there.
cleveland indians - tomo ohka is still pitching for them? oh...and there is so much more to rip on....kerry wood, anyone?
cincinnati reds - every time i turn the channel to their game something bad happens against them.
cleveland cavaliers - best record in the nba? yeah, games you're supposed to win will do that for ya.....but they lost to la at home and lost the eastern conference finals.....but they got an aging shaq during the off season, yippee!
columbus blue jackets - i don't really follow hockey, but i know that they got swept against the red wings.
columbus crew - the one gem in ohio besides the buckeyes.
osu men's basketball team - played good enough during the season to make the tournament......and then it all came crashing down against sienna. sayonora, bj.
osu football - they dominate the big ten, but should that be called into question? this losing of big games is getting old....and i can't find a section in the winner's manual of what to do when that happens...why is that troubling?
At least the Buckeyes and Reds have won championships. Could be worse. You could live in Seattle.
Screw soccer. Right in its hoity-toity butt.
im saying ohio is in a sports drought....and like i care about soccer. i can't even name a single person on the crew, just in case you get any ideas that im a fan, btw.....but my problem is that this is a recurring issue for most of these teams listed....this drought...these interminable "throw away" years..."rebuilding" years.....it sucks to be seattle, but im sure they can rest easier at night knowing that the sonics don't play there anymore.
Whatever happened to Jamario O'Neal?
He was never actually that good. The only play of note he made here was the boneheaded PI against Michigan in '06.
He just disappeared.
