Lived there for 2 years. State Street is cool. The concourse is a hell of a hotel. The people suck. Act accordingly.
sadly, this reminds me of reading the menopausal gossip at mgoblog on urban-- both sides equally clueless about the men, with judgment clouded irreparably by the opaque triviality of logos on visor caps.
how i long for yesterday, when football was played by men, coached by men, and most of all, discussed by men. coincidentally, that was a time when "commitments" were made of sterner stuff.
now, pardon my tangential musings, but it's amazing how we once asked a nation of 18 year olds to win a pair of world wars for us.
and they delivered.
while today, we're thrilled if they do so much as abstain from punching their grandmothers in the head.
so yeah, you grab the wood and i'll bring the kerosene; let's burn dino at the stake for having the heretical gall to expect a little more. folks, he's practically a goddamn sociopath.
p.s. let's crowdfund a couple grand for this cupp kid. youth counseling is expensive, and my heart breaks for the sort of sadistic misery that the world has dumped upon him. sometimes you've just gotta ask yourself, where is god's plan in all of this carnage?
i follow it very closely, but i won't down vote you on account of you don't know any better.
i've been lurking for months, but finally logged back in just to post here in this thread.
dantonio is a zanesville boy, and a damn fine one at that. integrity-wise, he's as good as it gets.
so, to ye in your ivory towers, we know that you know everything about how terrible of a man he is.
and we know that you have spent your entire life in athletics, yourself, what with having been recruited to play major college football AND having been on the other side as a major college football recruiter.
but, please pretend like you don't.
and, please pretend like you haven't.
now, thanks so much.
1, I find this to be silly. why are you *grading* the players? the season is over. we're all disappointed. what is to be gained by trashing 20 year olds? the site has taken on a simon cowell persona which I find difficult to tolerate, much less enjoy.
secondly, why are *you* grading the players? we watched the games. we know basketball.
I feel like this was an enormous waste of time on your part. it's as if you said, "well hell, I need to write at least *something* today."
do what 11W does best: research. I don't care about your opinions. bring me some real journalism. recruiting investigations, player interviews, program rumors. overall, anything other than your opinions, please.
edit: double post
Thad suddenly has 2 more schollies. find me 2 white kids who can defend and shoot but can't jump a lick. boban savovic, josh gasser. there are tons of those uncommitted, soon to tear up d2 or small-majors
Jesus. so many trolls who can't even spell d1 basketball. the next time you wanna trash a 20 year old, reconsider and go take a large dose of shutthefuckup. you don't need a pharmacist. it's OTC.
Jared sullinger. John Dillinger. Siri gives no fucks.
I don't much like Ross calling out the talent level on the team. even if you feel that way, some things stay in house.
secondly, this incoming recruiting class looks to be the best we've had since Dillinger/Thomas/craft
had meetings all day. didn't even get a chance to watch.
that said: show some class. Lenzelle had a good career. to criticize him is ridiculous.
and, I don't care how bad Amir may have been. HIS team lost. He let HIS teammates down.
before we go verbally rampaging the character of a 21 year old kid for having a bad basketball game, maybe we should step back from the keyboard, have a little perspective and realize it's probably a lot more difficult to play d1 athletics than anybody on this message board imagines.
and to sell out craft for choking at the end of big games after all he's done for the university both academically and athletically is absurd beyond words. kid has more athleticism in his pinky, more integrity in his thumb, and more tenacity in his index finger than most of you have in your entire bodies.
it's fairly pathetic for middle-aged men to blame all their sorrows on innocent kids, especially when the most athletic thing they do themselves consists of high-fiving the toaster oven after an above-average pop-tart browning.
fuck the buzz cuts.
Easy there, captain boner kill.
please come back?....?....?
enormous double standard. if we're being honest, mark may wouldn't have a job without racial politics.
it no longer matters that he can't play defense. clutch clutch clutch.
i'm a dribbling prodigy as well, but that's because my prostate is the size of the hindenburg.
anybody know what time we beat the hell out of iowa st on sunday after they beat little sisters of the poor?
why does dayton always host? what the hell's so special about dayton that would make it better than, say, quicken loans or uc's place?
wait wait wait. IONA DIDN'T SELL ALL OF THE 17 TICKETS ALLOTTED TO THEM?
i admire his humility. osu will always be a football school, and not many coaches of perennial national contenders would be ok with playing second fiddle.
sooooo.....how long until gene smith puts the team up for sale?
unlucky that this was posted here, seeing as my bracket was based on sagarin and kenpom, too. so, our brackets are the same, and now i'm screwed in the espn pool. this is my nightmare. commence meltdown.
