My first game the friend that came with me made a similar statement. Except a little more garbled and mostly incomprehensible. He was a slight bit intoxicated, allegedly. It went something like, "If you're a quiet one. Homes have couches. And maybe then you'll be welcomer."
In the future when I make the trek, I will be sure to tell them I had some warriors back me up and they can, in fact, bite me.
That captures how I felt. But as a on-native fan and visitor to the city... I may have been a tad too humble in the past. I think that won't be an issue moving forward. :)
I should've made my title more descriptive. Like... "Here Goes A Bit of Mental Masturbation in the Hopes of Getting a Laugh." My fault, folks. My fault.
Every year, without fail, someone fails to see levity where it's plainly advertised.
Very wishful, indeed.
There must be something other than MY team failing to meet every one of my unrealistic expectations. Conspiracy theories are next on my list of "It's obviously [fill in blank]"
Well... yes. I mean... that's pretty apparent, at this point. Right? It clearly wasn't to develop quarterbacks or provide a spark.
Also... I refuse to use the sarcasm font or XML tag.
I think I will go sit in the corner now and finish my lukewarm bowl of nevermind.
I know that I've been stockpiling my own play ideas and hot takes on napkins and notepads for years in anticipation they'll one day wake up and ask me my damn opinion.
The goal of the Coach is to win in January: what if we're all just watching a great con at work? Yeah... I know... No.
Meyer seemed to be really confident going into the half that they could hold on. And special teams gaffes are the only reason he was wrong.
Also.. Understand I'm not actually advocating this must be the case. I just hate that there's basically no damn reason for the lack of a deep passing game. And it's this fool's blind hope that it may be on purpose.
A few others have said/alluded to this, and I have very little experience in The Shoe, but I agree: Older, quiet people seem to get the best seats. The times I have been there, I have been asked to sit down and to be quieter. It blew my freaking mind. But it was like I was the bad guy... this wasn't some anomaly: multiple people asked me to sit and be quiet at each stop. It has honestly kept me from making the trip a couple times. It's sad. Louder and more fun to watch at a Buckeye-friendly bar.
Yuengling tastes good. Why is this controversial? Also oldest brewing company in America. Why do you hate America?
I mean... I'll go for it...
Happy belated, Magee! Your twitter recaps are a highlight of my Friday workdays. :)
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.
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.
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.
