All I think after reading this: I hate this mother f'n conference. I'd love to know 'punishments for this offense by conference.' We can't afford to be 'holier than thou' w/ the national beating we take w/ competitiveness. Oh, and Jim Delany is an ass clown.
I have absolutely no idea, but the vague nature lends itself to concussion (phrases like 'trouble focusing' etc)
I really feel that the university needs to conduct a few studies of the loudest places (namely, Clemson/LSU/Camp Randall, etc) and see what they do and don't do. We now have the largest student section in the country: yet that's still only about 1/4 of the stadium. And by studying the differences, I mean age demographics, music selections, seating arrangement, etc. In 2016, the seating will change: the largest donors will get the best (read: closest to the field) seats, whereas the lower donors are getting poorer seat selection. The environment is not going to get better due to a half-assed attempt at playing music during the game.
No style points, but since we just won the SEC east, we don't need them!
I can tell the OP has great insight into the dynamics of college football. Perhaps there's an opening on the staff for such foresight.
But all honesty, the crowd should be commended for making it to the game after risking life and limb on the icy highways today. I for one did not even bother to use my tickets because I rationalized 'football? wreck?' That doesn't mean I'm not a dedicated fan, it means I'm an intelligent fan who knows that travelling to the game wasn't worth the risk today. So instead of posting that the fans were 'borderline pathetic' how about stating how dedicated they were for coming out today.
I have 2 tickets sitting on my kitchen counter and am sitting at home 2 hours away. My neighbors wife is stranded because of ice, and parts of I-70 closed. Not a chance I'm risking it for Indiana.
Can Durkin take over special teams duties? I believe I read his original focus was linebackers and special teams before he was a DC... May sound like a demotion, but as Deion says, 'pay the man!'
Are you sure those aren't highlights from the Browns game?
I have to question your chlamydia statistics... No way in hell could Florida rank 28th, have you heard some of the crazy stories that come outta that state?
Hasn't UK lost 5 straight games? Perhaps his idea of improvement is a nominal one (competitive, etc.)
I would book a hotel ASAP, but unlikely to find one near the stadium. They've been pretty full since we beat MSU.
Not in Ohio it hasn't!
I agree that stopping the run on defense should be the highest priority for this year's unit. This starts with the front seven, naturally. Special teams also has been a weak point (returns and field goals, mainly). Cam Johnston is up for the Ray Guy award, obviously. On the returns, especially kick-off returns, it always blows my mind that it seems the return guy is either out-running his blockers or lacking the vision to see holes opening up from blocks. And yesterday the play-calling drove me crazy. If it's 15 degrees out and the ball is like a rock, you can swing that run:pass ratio to 70:30...
I still feel it's a backhanded attack toward the real 'The Game.' I see what you did there, four-letter network. Clever, but I still see it.
Thank you! I understand we're a much larger community now, and this seems like a logical solution to the 141 'Braxton or JT?' threads. Might I also suggest jail time for forum posts that directly attack (not that offer constructive criticism or debate, but an attack that can lead to no productive dialogue) of Ohio State players or recruits.
I've been looking (hard) for Pappy over the last three days. Basically 15 different state liquor stores. I have a line on 4 bottles (2 10yr and 2 12yr). Refused a 10yr from a flipper wanting $150 and refused a 20yr from a flipper wanting $500. Found my source for next year, they got multiple cases of each kind, but sold out the day before I found out. Currently only have 2 bourbons (Four Roses Single Barrel and Evan Williams Single Barrel). Would love to try any of the Pappy or the BTACs, but still enjoy my Scotch (have Glenlivit 21 yr Archive and Glenmorangie 18 yr Very Rare).
Have to apologize for being quick to criticize. I didn't read any of the thread comments, but increasingly lately I've just been reading new thread OP after new thread OP saying the same thing over and over (honestly, the JT/Braxton comparisons drove me over the edge) I'm from the old guard (reading for 4 years, member for 2 & 1/2) where we'd get 10 blog posts a day and everything was a new, original topic. I wish nothing but the best for Jalin and have no doubt he's going to surprise the uninformed, and meet the rest of our standards.
Cuter in Stop GIF. Probably because she appears drunk and more approachable.
Yes, I like the Buckeyes too. New threads to say how we now like individual players more even though they've played hard all year totally make sense.
Links or it didn't happen
Best of luck and a speedy recovery for Dontre! Best thing Urban said about him after the game: his mistakes weren't due to a lack of effort, and he gives effort on every play. You could see that when he and Zach Smith hugged after his TD.
I really respect Jerry Kill for what he's done for their program. With that said, I hope Urban quickly forgets about said friendship and puts up mad style points.
Threads that bring nothing new to the table...
I hate to be that guy, but if money's an issue, just keep your drinking in check and book a hotel on the outer belt. I was lucky last year, got a reservation at the Crowne Plaza near the airport, about a 5-10 minute drive from the stadium. I just parked early, think I paid $20. Not so lucky this year (waited until after the MSU team, so as not to jinx the Bucks...) and got a Holiday Inn Express on the southeast outer belt at $170. But heard absolutely nobody could get a cab last year, and was glad I did.
