The King led this historic 7-game series in: Points scored; Rebounds; Assists; Blocks; and Steals. That is remarkable. If Superman suited up and played for Golden State, he couldn't have done better.
Urban has his ship set to sail for the next 5 seasons. It's unbelievable. Buy your shades now -- you'll need 'em.
"You're an unemployed college drop-out. There's no way you are wearing a Rolex!"
It doesn't get any better than that. If there were a Hall of Fame for Moms, she'd be in it.
America could use a return to normalcy about now.
OSU should have sent along someone from the Spelling team.
Great time to be alive. It's a Buckeye world.
I love Joe Burrow. I love coaches' kids. I love QBs who've won championships. I love QBs who catch their own TD passes in clutch situations. I like what I saw in the Spring game and expect a stronger, smarter Joe Burrow this fall. I don't worry about him at all. He was built for this.
maybe they’re doing something that young male people do
I don't envy the coaches. Young male people can be quite a handful. Raging testosterone is an incredibly powerful force.
Ohio guy!!! All you need to know.
One of the best things about his recent concerts is the team of back-up musicians he uses on stage. As you'd expect, anyone Eric picks to play at one of his concerts is a virtuoso in their own right. So your evening is spent hearing a band of rock Yo-yo Mas strutting their stuff behind Slowhand. It's always a jaw-dropping experience.
'Decided schematic advantage'... Remember that one, from the last New Jersey coach to move to the Midwest to coach big-boy football?
Thanks, Coach Beck.
I'd bet Kareem does what he did earlier this year -- wait to see the National Championship game and, at halftime, call in a commitment to the team that's winning. We'll be fine with or without him.
Doing a lame Oregon impersonation by wearing different uniforms for a semi-big game is beneath tOSU. Buckeyes don't need gimmicks to win Saturday night B1G games in the 'Shoe. Of all the great Buckeye games I watched our guys win since 1955, I don't remember any made memorable by the uniforms. [I'm aware I'm an old fart who's out of touch with 140-character football 'thinking'] And if, God forbid, we lose Saturday night, those uniforms will become memorable for all the wrong reasons.
Friday Night Lights -- wonderful addition to the traditions. Saturday Night Darks -- sounds like a laundromat promo. Alas. Go Bucks!
"LeBron James totally would've went to Ohio State if he were forced into college."
If he had GONE to Ohio State he would have taken an English class and learned that "went" never goes with "have". It's "would have gone" to Ohio State. This is perhaps the most common Ohio malapropism and I'm on a crusade to eradicate it.
I love you DJ, but buy an elements of style guide.
Beautiful story Tim. Well done! Makes cheering for Tyquan a lot more meaningful, knowing his family too.
Maybe Randy Edsall should just stay home and work on his resume.
They got my attention so I guess they really work! Thanks for the info.
Uniform question -- been a lo-o-o-ong time since I've worn one. What are the thin bands many players wear on their legs, just below their knees, and arms, just above their elbows? Seems they're mainly worn by the skill guys, but they look too thin and flimsy to provide support or to catch sweat. What are they for? Somebody help an old man please.
As someone whose mental health can't be labeled pristine, this message hit a chord with me.
Me too. But I'll tell you what, DJ Byrnes. If you ever even think of hurting yourself, I'll drive back to Ohio and beat the crap out of you. God put you here to write for the rest who can't. You have a gift that I open every morning of my life. Your writing is pristine. Don't ever forget that.
I don't buy this crap that it's science. It was MAGIC.
Best screen shot of the night. VA Tech fan asking guy next to her, "Was that trick photography? Is it even legal? Our defenders never had a chance! How can a player running full speed spin 360 and never miss a step?"
In 2005, in my late 50s, I had a bad fall that left me with a broken neck, fractured skull and crushed vertebra. The kids I taught in Sunday school in Arlington VA sent Tress a letter telling him a Buckeye fanatic was now flat on his back at the Washington Hospital Center in DC. In response, Tress sent me an 8x10 photo of him cheering on his players during the Miami national title game. On it he wrote to me, "Get better soon, Geoff. The Buckeyes are cheering for you. Go Bucks, Jim Tressel." I loved him even before that act of unexpected kindness, but now I fight folks who speak ill of him. God threw away the mold after He made Jim Tressel.
Anyone know the names of these Moms, left to right?
I'd like to be able to connect players and Moms. I'd bet my car that the woman in the middle, getting a big hug, is Steven Collier's Mom, but the others I don't recognize.
