My memory must really be going. I can't remember reading that Game Day in 2014. It was priceless. Thanks for the link.
Phi: Buckeye enclave in FLA? Where? I'm in Clearwater.
I lived in the Milwaukee area for 30 years, and all we ever heard about was how great a city Chicago was. If that was true, why was every other license plate on weekends in southeastern Wisconsin a F.I.B. The best part of moving from Wisconsin was never having to drive through Chicago again. If you love bread pizzas, sitting in traffic, and obnoxious Cub and Da Bears fans, Chicago is your mecca.
I think Green Bay would be a great place for Cardale. No pressure because Rogers has several good years left, and Green Bay is the closest thing to a college atmosphere in the NFL. I think he'd flourish in a small town environment. No place loves and respects and protects their players like Green Bay fans.
Urban Meyer's program seems to be a great segue into real life for these kids. Honest self evaluation, honest feedback, success based on performance, and aggressive competition all are prescriptions for success in the real world. Based on recent observations, it's too bad the rest of the kids in college don't appear to be getting this kind of preparation for life.
Great comment. No sense having all these great players and not playing them.
Every group always thinks they have things worse than everyone else, irrespective of their situation. It's human nature. Of course the NCAA and the schools profit off he athletes, and the athletes trade their services for a period off time for a valuable education and a foot in the door for much greater things in the NFL. It's the way the real world works. The system has it's faults but seems fairly stable. We are the beneficiaries because we have the greatest two spectator sports in the world to enjoy, College and Pro football. I don't lose any sleep over which one happens to be complaining at the moment. Both come out in the end with pretty sweet deals.
_ichigans best players have more than not, always come from Ohio. A bunch of good, pissed off football players with a chip on their shoulders because OSU didn't offer, or because they weren't recruited by OSU as vigorously as they though they should have been, is how scum is going to get back in the game. Harbaugh is bat_hit crazy, but he is not stupid. A bunch of misguided OSU fans want TTUN competitive again. Be careful what you ask for.
Ol' dude?? Depends on your perspective. That guy can't be much over 30. And shitting yourself in meetings happen all the time. Lots of times, it's the best thing that happens in meetings.
Been down here winters for three years now. Home to Dublin in the summer / fall. It's incredible that these two states really are parts of the same country.
The worst thing about getting old is seeing all the people you knew and watched and listened to as a kid leaving ahead of you. The second worst is beginning to realize 90 ain't really that far away. RIP Joe.
These 65 year old NFL GM's are my age, and guarantee they did some intense partying in the 60's. What a bunch of phonies. Do as I say, not as I did. Probably complaining about Boas and Zeke while they are sitting around swilling $300 a bottle scotch. The NFL is the epitome of an old boys club.
Why not put a shadow on Valentine and take him out of the game? He seems to be able to do what ever he wants.
Snorkeling trip to Molokini Crater (Maui) is well worth the time. Ditto helicopter ride on Kauai.
My nephew has one more year of OSU optometry school to go. I think they're still using the same building, but with lots of renovations inside. He'll enjoy seeing the picture from the 20's.
I'm getting a bit tired of _ichigan state repeatedly being the turd in the Buckeye punchbowl. Those guys deserve about 10 years of beatdowns.
Didn't know the story about William White and didn't know he studied engineering at OSU. I got my BSME in '73 and can say it's amazing that someone can devote the time and effort required to develop NFL level skills and still have enough time and drive to get an engineering degree too. He is a real role model and deserves congratulations.
I am really tired of all the people that hope the Walverines are "relavent" again. They will be the first to jump ship when the scumbags finally do beat the Bucks. As distasteful as that sounds it will happen again someday. I gotta believe most of them were not around or can't remember how miserable that feels when it happens more than once a generation. Thinking OSU needs them to be credible to make us look better is hogwash. We compete with the best in the country now. 2014 season proves it.
Maybe Bert and Old Nicky need to take their guys to _ichigan and Wisconsin for spring break. That'll show 'em.
They both start with M. Close enough for these irrelevant bozos.
Maybe OSU should start recruiting in American Samoa.
Can someone explain to me why so many really good defensive linemen come from Louisiana? It doesn't make any sense, Louisiana is not that big of a state, population wise. Ohio has 11.5 million people and Louisiana has only 4.5 mil.
2015 couldn't have been much fun for the Buckeyes. It wasn't much fun to watch (till the last two games). Doing something once, knowing you have the talent, and not being able to do it again one of the most frustrating things in life. But doing something no one else thinks you can do is one if the most satisfying and fun things possible. 2014 was one of those years. I think 2016 can be another. And it will be fun.
I assume Bosa still had to go to class occasionally. I wonder if his grades improved during his time of solitude? Maybe he's got something there.
