479 ...Go Bucks!
Josh was a surprise commitment and now he's a surprise decommitment. C'est la vie. Good luck, young man.
I knew he was truly a great football player when he made that blindingly fast and violent special teams hit last season. When an offensive star makes a defensive hit like that one, you know he's a baller. Reminded me of Clarett's post-interception tackle in the 2002 NC game.
Agree 100%. You want the anger, as long as it's controlled, focused anger -- not the 15 yard penalty-type anger young players can be susceptible to. UFM will have them ready on 11/8th. We owe 'em.
We have the finest college football coach in America, period, end of sentence. ScUM can dream of the Harbaughs, Les Miles or Jon Gruden -- it doesn't matter who they get. We have the finest coach in America.
I thought "mean Mr. Mustard" first appeared in a Beatles song from the late 1960s.
Football smarts out the wazoo. Very impressive dude. Sounds like UFM has us in great shape, as usual.
I'm very confident. We owe 'em.
I love this feature. Just because a guy's no longer in scarlet and gray, doesn't mean he's out of our hearts and minds.
When a recruit says, "It's everything you could want as a school and a football program" that's a pretty good sign.
Young guys see 'pus' and they think only one thing. Old guys like me see it and think another -- think maybe the young man's got an infection.
Agree completely. If he was stupid enough to fall in love with Brady Hoke, he's not smart enough to play tight end at tOSU.
If this football thing doesn't work out for him, Urban should teach Psychology at tOSU, maybe chair the Department. He's a genius at motivating young people..
I recall Keyshawn telling Mike Thomas to suck it up, keep working hard and listening to coaches during his red-shirt year. He told Mike he'd give anything to have the opportunity tOSU was giving his nephew to play wide receiver in Columbus for Urban Myer. I did a 180 on Keyshawn immediately after reading that quote.
Mike Thomas from the VT 30.
Rod Smith -- 121 yds
Lord, I'm glad I'm not the guy who asked Urban about "the new tunnel". If you look up "lame" in the dictionary...
The gameday experience today was outstanding. We won. We played a very disciplined team made up of future American heros who are cheered for by the smartest, fittest, best-scrubbed college-aged kids you've ever seen. Watching the midshippersons[?] march across the field to their seats made you wish you weren't hoping they'd lose. Hearing the Star Spangled Banner sung by the Navy choir in the very city where British bombs were bursting in air back in 1814 set the tone for the rest of the day. It was spectacular. Before the opening kick-off, Navy and Buckeye players met at midfield for a handshake. Then at the half, tOSU did a very cool tribute to Navy, which touched the older Navy grads around us, and topped it off with a Double Script Ohio. Awesome, as always. But the truly breathtaking moment that had everyone around me dumbstruck was at the end of the game, all players from both teams met at midfield, walked together toward the Navy middies' end zone and listened respectfully the Navy Choir sing The Navy Hymn. Then they all walked together to the Buckeye end zone where TBDGITL did the usual Carmen Ohio. The Navy guy beside me was really moved. He asked me "Wouldn't it be great if that would spread?" I thought, yeah that would be good. Then all schools would do things right, like The Ohio State University already does.
When JoePa State does their White-Out gimmick, it makes me want to kill somebody and puke on their corpse. When our Navy does it, I want to stand up and salute. These uniforms are awesome. But they ain't Scarlet and Gray. Go Bucks, God Bless the USA.
I'm a Columbus kid who's lived in the Baltimore/Washington area for over 30 yearrs. For those of you attending the Navy game, you'll have a ball. Baltimore has magnificent seafood, the world's best aquarium and a bar that serves massive platters of bacon to its patrons every hour on the hour. Free handfuls of crispy bacon that you simply cannot turn down. Then later this year, come back again for the Maryland Terrapins' cheesy crab-dip pretzel and watch the game in a cozy venue the size of an Ohio high school stadium. Don't know if adding Maryland will be good for the BiG, but these will be fun games with great eats and pleasing final scores. Come join us and let Marylanders know what true football fans look like.
I love Ohio State football because it fills me with hope 9 months of the year and has me walking a tightrope between fear and exhilaration the other 3. It can make me cry and withdraw from my fellow man. Yet it is an ironclad guarantee of magnificent Saturdays in the Fall of every year -- every single year, 60 of them for me. When I die, if I wake up in the 'Shoe with a double script Ohio, I'll know I made it into heaven. Great article!
If a guy has offers from both scUM and tOSU, and picks scUM, the least he can do is provide some comic relief. This clown surely has.
It changed mine too. Keep saying it, He hears you and it works. Happy for your happiness.
