I am glad a read the comments before posting, but you are spot on with LeMay. When a man (in a time of war) is responsible for more death than the bombs, he is someone to be reckoned with. Not so much on SJP, but as far as Nelsonville goes she ranks slightly ahead of the great ones, Brian & Tom Bruce.
Great links today DJ. Under the ancient cold link, they note we may even see giant viruses. I need some of that gigantism.
I agree. Who wants a picture with Ron Jeremy's scrotum? Not quite the same as putting yourself in the open holes of a picture at a Mexican restaurant.
Great article on Maddux. As a Reds fan, you couldn't believe the calls he would get but then, every pitch was within the glove location, no matter where the catcher placed it. The men's BBall team needs some consistent play for sure. Also, IMO, they are a better team when Craft or Scott penetrates and then dishes or attempts a layup. This obviously breaks the defense down and at least the Bucks have a shot at a rebound versus when Smith Jr. takes a 24 footer with nobody in position to rebound. Let's just sit back and see what Matta does over the next 4-8 weeks. He's the coach and a damn good one.
Is that Saban behind Red Lightning or simply the gang from Gameday?
Damn, that 14 yr old boy had muscles on his hands. His hands!
Good job Sparty. Really good job Nebrasky. Not as good Whisky, but with a second string QB it was noted with an asterisk.
My guess is the SEC is a favorite by +10 points in each game. For instance, LSU (ranked) will play Iowa (unranked). A healthy UGA will play a weak Nebraska team that was never ranked in the top ten, in comparison to UGA's #3 ranking at one point before the slew of injuries. It is possible the B1G goes winless as the best chances are OSU and MSU but when teams are evenly matched, losses can also happen. If not for the supportive canvases of the B1G's teams, they wouldn't play these away games against teams of higher ranking. Nebraska would end up playing Rice.
I don't disagree with you. On a side note, you generally have a change of heart regarding speed when you have a child. At least the wife and I both did about 4.8 years ago. Now we take side roads where the damage in an accident are significantly less than when some idiot decides to side swipe you at 75 MPH. In fact, while going 35 MPH I don't even think I will die unless I am on a crotch rocket, which was traded in for a Jeep Wrangler years ago. I think the safety issue on the 'Bahn is related to the lack of speed limit. Here, some go the limit and others don't, which causes the issue. Think differential.
I agree Charlie. This read, as many of @Ramzy's articles do, energizes the readers even more. Sure it is a great day to meet the writers, readers and posters, but we all need to remember that it is just a game and being able to benefit DS or any charity is what is important. This article is the body of the story, I will be interested to see how the conclusion is written in the future.
Wow Chris, Princess Olga was one Baaaaaaad B!tch of a ruler. Burning the best of the men alive. Burying the others. I love the education of the masses via a link on here and watching Northern Illinois play today is better than no college football. Please throw out some love for Curtis Le'May in a link sometime. Not only is he OSU, but he is responsible for the deaths of more people than Fat Man and Little Boy combined.
At this point in his career, I agree. He should be like KG and be trying to figure out how to graduate and coach.
I am okay with what Taylor Lewan said concerning OSU's rank. After all, he ended up being prophetic. The defense the team has fielded isn't a top ten defense. Taj Boyd has to be smiling knowing that he will throw for over 400 yards in his last game. I ought our linebackers played much better, but the DBs looked lost once again. That being said, it was a nice ride, but just like everything else, it has to come to an end.
I'm also okay with it. Hall will miss the start and it won't be on his stat sheet, but he will forever be seared into our memory for his exit at Michigan. Legendary.......
I think a better historical lesson would be the 1998 team when they encountered MSU or even the 2002 NC team when they were given no respect and punched (figuratively) the immortal Miami Hurricanes in the kidneys several times before they succumbed to the slow painful loss. I want to be the team with the chip on our shoulder. Not the over-confident champions. I can't remember his name, but I leave you with this... "Be nice to everyone, but have a plan to kill them." I believe it was a great USMC Sargeant but I could be wrong. Or if you want OSU history, play Curtis LeMay to their Tokyo and bomb the into the friggin' Stone Ages.
I just saw something on TV: If OSU plays FSU in the National Championship game, it may be the first time they will be playing against Brutus. #42
No sleep with kids. Even on the weekend, my 4 1/2 year old gets up at 6:30 to watch Spider-Man or TMNT. I usually get about 20 min to myself watching FS1 before ingesting a couple of cups of Starbucks to lube the machine for the day.
Shazier not taking DPOY awards or at least top linebacker is...... wait for it..... well, a damn shame. I mean what does one have to do? (I question COY here too)
Kirk Ferentz, will you step to the podium? But seriously, I think Marc Dantonio will get it.
Thanks for the post. You are spot on. He started it all and nearly every action after his initial punch was a result of the instigation. I saw this during the game and the replays and was amazed that the announcers didn't catch it.
All valid points! Great Skully today. If Delaney is considering suspensions, he should ask himself who instigated the fight. I love that Marcus Hall went out like David Carradine (two Tai hookers and an eight-ball). We do all dream of that exit. He will forever be immortalized as the "H" in my mind and you can always apologize later. Some may not like it, but we should embrace the emotion for what it is worth, emotions from a 21 year-old. Did they get the best of him, yeah they did. But you just can't turn them off that easily after a scrum against your rival. It will burn for days. 365 to give a rough estimate.
I totally agree. I always think, "Those that forget the past are doomed to repeat it." To me, this means if we do not remember the losses of the 90's when OSU was heads above Michigan, yet Michigan pulled out the win, or just thumped us, it will happen again. I remember those games. I want to see a wide open offense and no turnovers. That is how you win this game. Mistakes lose them (see slips, Stan Jackson, punt coverage, and however you classify Tim B.).
"Kill them all and let. God sort them out."
I am thankful for all that @11W gives us, including the entertaining banter on here! My family, friends and those Ohio State Buckeyes are also going to be on my gratitude list today! Go Bucks!
Did I miss the Braveheart link?
I like the references to Conan, but I was thinking more like pulling the old number 7(?) on them. Blazing Saddles style....
