Nashville, TN (via Nashville, TN)

Member since 03 October 2013 | Blog

Live in Tennessee. Have lived in Kentucky, Georgia, and Florida, as well. Became a Buckeyes fan when I was dealing with a leg injury in my freshman year in high school (1995). I loved football, but only playing it. I never really watched college ball. Then my dad put on an Ohio State game for me while I was laid up in bed. I watched Eddie George make men look like boys and have been a Buckeye fan ever since.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Playing: Didn't have many awesome plays. Forced and recovered a fumble one time. Had a great basketball game with a legit double-double (points, rebounds). Nothing major.
    Witness: Watching OSU beat Miami in OT to win the Crystal Ball in 2003. I was in a bar filled with Miami fans. It was fantastic.

Yeah... no Tressel to PSU. Just got excited thinking about him coaching again. That took over the keyboard... no way he'd want to play OSU every season and also have to defend that administration.

Comment 29 Sep 2016

Truckloads of cash are hard to turn down for any man. And now that there is some more fallout around the country, if Tressel were to be approached by PSU, I think he'd have other more lucrative offers that wouldn't pit him against a school he so obviously loved and he wouldn't be positioned to have to defend the actions of a dumb ass administration that memorializes child-abuse-enablers. So there's that. I guess I wasn't thinking clearly enough when I posted that earlier; I just kind of remembered his show-cause ends this season and went all stream of consciousness. My b, yo.

Oh you won't hear me defend them. Just saying the AD wouldn't have a tough sell with him. And I believe he could be a quality college coach. His personality isn't really a good fit at the pro level.
Comment 24 Sep 2016
I know that when they hired Franklin another coach under consideration was Mike Muchak. With his lack of movement into another NFL gig, they may revisit. He's from PA, a former PSU player, has player-only tis to Paterno, and would probably make boosters happy. I think he'd be a great hire. Also... a certain sweater vest is no longer under show-cause.

Continuing with what some of the others have said, it's for ease of recognition for play calls. To add though, you should see varying different colors for position groups. So that when NB80 looks to the sideline, he can quickly find his play caller, while JTIV can quickly find his. I know some other schools have implemented plays by position as they become much harder to interpret for the opposition and also allow a level of detail in sideline calls that would otherwise take a great deal more time. Not 100% on this; as it's all anecdotal, not from source.

They have this game circled, blocked, and highlighted.

Comment 12 Sep 2016

I was looking for a comment like this to chime in on, to address that part of the original post. I'm in agreement with you here. And to add to it, even with loss to OSU, OU is still going to be contending for the Big 12 champion if they win out after losing this weekend. And if they get that, they'll likely be top 10 again; even though not playoff bound. And it bolsters both the OSU and Houston schedules.

Comment 12 Sep 2016

Yeah, Diggs is for real. I'm pretty sure he embarrassed Perrish Cox on one of those catches - and while he's probably no hall of famer, he's a pretty solid veteran DB. The run game looked solid in first half; but with poor pass pro, eventually they load the box and it's all ifs and wishes after that. D Henry looked piss poor in pass pro; Murray looked decent... but when the Left Guard is lost and the Right Tackle is a rookie that plays like a rookie... you need that pass blocking RB. Henry is not that. At least not at the NFL level and not yet. FWIW - I picked KC to win their division this season... and I wouldn't be surprised to see them go farther than that. I think they'll be a 2013/14 Seahawks-esque complete team.

Comment 12 Sep 2016

Our opener was kind of the opposite. The offense looked functional and poised, with Murray looking like his Dallas-days-self. Then... ya know... meltdown after sitting in the locker room for 10 minutes. The only feel-good part of this was that Tajae Sharpe, the undervalued, overlooked, undersized, 5th round pick out of UMass looked like a real boss out there. Felt good for him.

Comment 12 Sep 2016

Oh, being a Texans fan there must be a nice little helping of schadenfreude watching the Titans mull over their latest mishap while they sit in the corner in timeout. Upon expansion and alignment into AFC South, the Texans took a few beatings back when the Titans weren't a laughing stock. I'm sure that fan base loves the hell out of this downward spiral. (As they should!)

Comment 12 Sep 2016

They can't ever seem to get out of their own way. I was initially convinced it was a curse placed on the organization by Steve McNair after the way they handled his departure. But I think even his ghost is just shaking his dang head.

Comment 12 Sep 2016

I absolutely thought this, as I wrote the post; but, I decided to roll with it anyway. I assumed no sympathy from Browns fans. But hey... at least know you all have company in NFL's Misery-ville.

Comment 12 Sep 2016

Me too. I think even most of the Titans organization thought they'd win. And the defense was pretty well tuned, especially stopping AP. But the offense has to get the ball, eventually. And the Titans gonna Titan.

Comment 03 Sep 2015
Nevermind... apparently "Find in page" didn't think I meant THAT 111. Oh well. Get that W, all that matters.
Comment 01 Sep 2015
Eight. The number is 8. Just enough to remember and get hype, not so much that you get angrier than grown folks, not suiting up for Urban, should get. I realize I don't win, because someone else beat me, but it is the correct number.
Comment 22 Jun 2015

People questioning why Urban hasn't upgrade that old set... I'm reminded of the concept of being wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. It's plainly obvious that he could have whatever set he chooses. He chooses to have that set. There's a reason, folks. And I don't want to be the one to find out, first hand.

Pretty sure you also have to drink protein stuff and buy a shake weight. I don't think you do anything with it... just buy it. You should be peak for the '16 season. Good luck! *This is bad advice*
Comment 07 May 2015
A dv for saying "no?" The handle creeps me out a bit, but I'll +1 you for the offset.
