Do you mean Tecmo Bowl? I was born 4 years after that came out, but I still played it when I was little
Pretty sure thats just the back of his shirt hanging down. There's no way he has a 'gut' and is going to be a 1st/2nd round pick, sorry.
I totally agree, I know no one would like that notion but I wouldn't be upset with Tebow in a Browns uniform. Even if he had to play fullback, the dude knows how to win and has all of the intangibles that you can't teach. Look what he did with the Broncos. I see a similar type thing happening with Manziel in the NFL
I mean, he could win games and all, which is the biggest of upsides if correct. The draft is merely speculation on how good a player should be, so its all speculation regardless and if the Browns think he will help them win and win often, then I say take him.
I don't like all of his off the field stuff either, but thats what it comes down to. If the staff feels he will help them win immediately they will take him at 4.
See, this is actually really cool. I tested the same theory that there are people lurking around who really take things way too seriously, and it has been proven with the expected down vote. Pretty much the same idea behind why that guy got in trouble over nothing. People can be overly sensitive sometimes. If I had used sarcasm font my test would have been contaminated because it was too easy for people to see my comment was purely jest. Perfect spot for the "lighten up, Francis" .gif from Stripes if anyone has it!
In response to the guy getting arrested over Facebook comments….
Why does Canada ruin everything?
That scUM broadcast video of Evan's shot never gets old. I could watch that all day
Reading this list of names brought up a feeling of nostalgia, which is cool, but odd at the same time because of the amount of time I spend on places like 11w. Seeing so many older names I am familiar with just brings back good memories, and makes me excited for how good we can be in the near future seeing as how we are out recruiting what Tress was able to do here on a consistent basis, although who knows how they will pan out in a couple years. Really cool post, I agree with almost everything on here.
My reasoning behind why Jeff Green will be awesome next year
Might be one of the biggest WR's to come through since Boston
I thought the black jersey fad died out 10 years ago. Leave the uniform alone, the alternates we use are usually pretty good but this is Ohio State, the scarlet and gray. Not the black and gray. I have no problem with black trim (although I prefer the old gray shoulder stripes) but leave it at that.
In regards to using a bat on a pitcher in a fight, I'm pretty sure I've seen on the MLB network footage of this happening around 80 years ago, so Cuba needs to get on the MLB's level
I don't care what else is going on any given day, I always have some time for some 'crootin served up by Birm!
Totally thought this was a Ramzy article with the faded color on the picture but then upon further inspection its just someone's finger obscuring part of it. Whoops.
This, tied together with the other article from Meechy on how his recruitment ended, paints an interesting picture of what goes on behind the scenes and what is really important in recruiting.
I feel like a huge generator behind the first two year 'flip avalanche' was Meyer's new tenure. A lot of recruits that flipped did so because OSU was in turmoil before Urban was announced, all he did was extend an offer. The real success of his flipping ability was limited to Conley, Dodson (although this almost falls into the territory of 'new coach at OSU'), Dontre Wilson and Demetrius Knox, although Demetrius and Dontre both de-committed and did not immediately join OSU and their recruitment being described as a flip is a stretch. More like he decided on going somewhere, reconsidered and had two-three new finalists (us and UCLA and Texas Oregon and us in Dontre) and picked from them. Its hard for me to call those two 'flips'. Just my opinion.
It will be interesting to see how frequent true flips occur moving forward. Names like Shaun Crawford come to mind in this regard.
One of the changes that has stood out to me is the color of the title bar at the top of the screen. I was so used to seeing the scarlet colored logo and bar. The black throws me off, I feel like I'm on the homepage of SB Nation all the time.
I love everything else so far, this upgrade seems to be doing its job well of making things easier/smoother (and it has that new site smell to it)
This might be the longest buckshot of all time.
Great read though, welcome, Darius!
If anyone was doubting the validity of the statements on how well the helmet sticker method worked or how awesome our community here is, there were exactly TWO downvotes on this entire thread of comments, both were correctly applied to some members referencing pornography, albeit in a non-weird way (crude humor), but it was there nonetheless and dealt with. That's 108 comments (at the time of this post) that were well thought out, family friendly and made sense. That is AMAZING compared to any other site on the internet.
Best community on the web? I think that's a resounding YES
Man, I went to Brush and the Brush football player recent history at the D1 level isn't very good!
Roy Hall - Injures Ted Ginn Jr. in the title game
Marcel Frost - Kicked off team
Pharaoh Brown - This
Sure hope it turns around soon..
I think the most frustrating player is easily Amir Williams. That guy looks like he needs an energy drink or something come game time, never see much out of him at all at a huge position of need
Ok thanks John! I didn't know Murray had transferred, guess I just missed that one
I agree with most of the things you mentioned John, but why no mention of Devon Bogard or Najee Murray? Both are players I would like to think would push for time at least at STAR, if not making a big impact on special teams.
Also, I don't know about the rest of you but I am blown away by Demetrious Knox at this stage and I believe he is college ready, and honestly is my pick to win the right guard spot opposite of Elflein.
I know you were focusing on redshirted players and early enrollees on top of what we have returning, but what is your take on Meechy as a starter next year 11w staff? And the other two DB's I mentioned?
I think Franklin is a good hire because he is insane, just like the State Penn fan base
No one has mentioned this, but what about somehow bringing back Taver Johnson? He put up some good results coaching DB's, and you can't blame him for taking more money elsewhere after Tresselgate happened. I would love to see him return and coach the secondary
