Deserves every penny of he earns

not sure how to embed, but here is the link
From left to right: Curtis Grant, Cam Williams, Josh Perry, Doran Grant, Joe Burger (behind Grant), Raekwon McMillan, Cam Burrows, Craig Fada (in front of Burrows), Devan Bogard, Eli Apple, Noah Spence, Vonn Bell, Chris Carter (laying down)
Chris Carter owes Maroti a thank you card for saving his life. Dude is looking good! Vonn Bell looks much bigger than I imagined, he's bent down, but he still looks tall. Bogard looks to have added some serious weight.

Thanks for posting Bassdropper - those boys are so ripped - now the coaches have to make sure they are all heading in the same direction or is that in the One Direction..........oops no it's same direction sorry.

Here are more photos.

Defense Pic #2

Devan Bogard, Noah Spence, and Chris Carter 

I still can't get over Carter's transformation. A lot of thought he wouldn't make it in college because he was so big and thought to be lazy. Just shows what Marioti can do. I'm hoping Chris can get time at DT. He looks like Phil taylor. 

Random note: could you imagine what Micky would have done to Jonathon Hankins if he had him for more than 1 offseason?

Echo this.  A brief pinned tutorial on pics, vids, gifs and tweets would be very helpful.

Instagram can't be embedded into comments, because you can't access the source. What I did was merely take a screen capture of the image, threw it up on Imgur, and posted it here.

As for YouTube, GIFs, and Tweets, it's all very simple in this new system.

GIFs: When you have located your GIF, you can simply right click (or dual click if you're on a Chromebook/Macbook, w/e) and select "Copy Image URL." Once you have that, you come into the comment editor: 

For GIFs, the picture icon, located on the far left here is what you want. It will give you this screen:

Just paste the URL into the URL slot, hit "OK" and the comment hub will automatically do the coding for you. Your GIF will appear in the comments.

YouTube videos are just as easy. See the Youtube icon in the bar above (second from the right?) It gives you a screen like this:

Just copy/paste the URL of the YouTube video you want to embed, and hit OK. We'll handle the rest of the code.

.............................

Tweets are probably the trickiest, but they're still quite easy. Find the tweet you want to embed:

See that "... More" tab near the bottom? Next to "Favorite"? Click that and you'll get this dropdown menu. Click "Embed Tweet" it will give you something that looks like this:

Copy that code text. Then come back to the 11W comment hub and click on the twitter bird, on the far right of the previously mentioned toolbar. Paste the code in like so:

Hit OK and BEHOLD:

Although, it should be noted, if the tweet youre trying to embed comes from an account that's locked, you won't have the option to embed it. 

..........................................

It's all pretty straight forward once you get the hang of it. If you guys are still having trouble, let me know and I'll try to help you out.

Is that DPRK tweet real?  Wow.

DJ Byrnes's picture

Yes the DPRK tweet is very real. Probably one of my favorite follows on Twitter, tbh. Absolutely bizarre. I also love their syntax.

Thank you DJ! 

Are regular pics handled the same as .gifs?  No uploading, just URL?

Any way you could save your post somewhere easily accessible for future reference for new (or forgetful) members?

Thx, again.

Yes, regular images are the same as well.

Next time I talk to Jason in the principal's office I'll bring it up. Sure seems to be a demand.

Awesome information! Now....... Where do I locate these GIF's?

I created a post yesterday where I was asking for different web sites for the best gifs. Business Insider had some very good sports gifs but what I found was... if you type what your looking for in any search engine - you'll have all the sites to choose from - enjoy.

Yeah, that's nice. 100 or so guys and all that. It's definitely much better than a public gym that over signs members and has maybe 1 cage. These kids are definitely spoiled.

Well, you don't have to worry about oversigning at Planet Fitness, because there are no lunks and no judgments.

There might not be any lunks, but have you ever been there between 4:30PM and 7:00PM?  Plenty of idiots who have absolutely no idea what they're doing standing around the smith machines socializing and just taking up space.....not to mention parking spots.  I love the people who have like 35% body fat laying around like beached whales trying to do crunches.  I like PFIT....but they DEFINITELY over sign.  Haha.

If I looked like some of those guys I'd never wear a shirt.  I'd go to the store, to work, even to church without a shirt.  Impressive...as I sit in my recliner typing on a Saturday afternoon.

So you'd be an older version of Justin Bieber?? Walk into Starbucks and say,

Shirtless Ashtabula: "Yo, get me a skinny mocha frapp, no whip! Check out my abs, Dats what up"

Starbucks employee: "You need a shirt, no shirt, no service!"

Shirtless Ashtabula: "What you talking about baby, it would  be a sin to cover up this magnificent 6 pack!"

Stabucks Employee: "Get out, no shirt, no service"

Shirtless Ashtabula: (Yelling) "Your just jealous of my body and my washboard... (turns and sees a man approaching him) Oh, whats up Braxton.

"SLAP!!!"

Shirtless Ashtabula: Ouch... why you gotta do that Braxton?? I just wanted a skinny moch frapp, no whip!!

I'm guessing a combination of power walking, jazzercise, and a rigorous shake weight routine

This is not the video you were looking for.

Oh yes it is! Thank you. Prancercise is an extremely grueling workout regimen. Don't knock it until you try it. This may be what TTUN's football team uses to get their results. She's far more advanced than the TTUN football team, though. She's got ankle weights.

I've never been able to go more than 2 minutes into the Prancercise Trot. It's just way too advanced for me.

Carter was looking good last season, sounds like he is continuing to stick with the program, assuming these photos are recent.  They must be, Raekwon is in them.  Good news.

LJS will have plenty of talent to work with, should be interesting.  I think the Buckeyes will maybe have the best defensive line in the country if everyone is healthy.

It's not hard to look like that with athletic DNA, which much of it is just having the right DNA, nutrition and hitting the weight stacks. Trainers and their staff, are pretty much a dime a dozen, all certified by pretty much the same governing body, and have access to the same info.

It's good these kids are hitting it hard, but don't look any different from any other major D1A program.
