We were at the YSU game and were laughing at the close scores originally. Then, in the early 4th quarter of our blowout, while their game was still close, we made the decision that the possibility of TSUN pain was more important than watching us close out our game. We bolted for a different BDubs (Bethel, I believe) and watched the end there.
9/1/07 and we played Youngstown State, not Akron...but your point remains, it was a glorious day.
Wait, wait, wait...in several of those clips he rebounded the ball above his head, kept the ball above his head, didn't dribble, and shot the ball from above his head. I've thought that was illegal the past 4 years?!?!
Did you say "impact" ? Sorry, I'm reaching now, but it's worth it for the highlight videos.
Awww, poor Landon Collins. I'm sure he got trucked on that play because OSU was weak and he's not a box safety.
Also, what Noah Brown did to Geno Smith on that play was beautiful. #24 likely has an assisted tackle with Collins well short of a first down if not for Brown engaging and eventually burying him.
Pretty sure he actually had a big smile on his face after the hit.
We got to meet this family during our 5 years living in Pickerington and attending the same church. Deepest sympathies to the Johnson family. RIP B-Rock.
Box safety comments aside, if you look at the date of the tweet, we hadn't played them yet, so he hadn't been made aware of what actual strength feels like on a football field.
True, and Braxton started it on the bench and DAMN YOU FOR MAKING ME REMEMBER BAUSERMAN
Except that he wasn't "simply playing QB." He was playing QB/RB in Urban's offense. He had more carries than Boom Herron in 2011, more than Hyde in 2012, and has had more carries than Todd Gurley did in his college career.
Andrews set their win total at 11, a full game higher than the five teams set at 10 wins.
Oh, and bag worms. Destroy on sight. Those things are nasty on trees.
Hate all of those mentioned above, as well as Crane Flies, which we have tons of near our house. As far as pests go, they're really not anything to worry about, other than maybe the larvae killing some plants or grasses. However, they look like 2" mosquitoes so they definitely make you jump a bit.
Probably QB. Rumor has it we're lacking depth at that roster spot.
23 in Circleville has one too.
Catalfino's in Pickerington.
Place had an awesome family environment, half-priced pizzas on Mondays, and the best Buffalo Chicken Pizza that I've ever had. Drove by one night and thought it was weird that the lights weren't on yet and found a note on the door saying they were closed after 38 years.
Maybe they were separate thoughts that should have been divided into different paragraphs?
Winston is the perfect example for my point. You're suggesting that Cardale's tweets could in some way affect his draft status. Meanwhile, a kid who was accused of rape, caught shoplifting and in trouble for yelling obscenities at school was taken #1 overall. I think that kinda ruins your theory.
With all due respect, the #1 draft pick a couple of weeks ago was not only the class clown, but also someone with legal issues. I think you're reading far too much into harmless tweets by a law-abiding leader.
Where was the hate?
I went back and checked and Zeke had 8 more negative rushing plays than Hyde (2014 vs 2013, just regular season), granted he also played in 3.5 more regular season games. If that's the barometer that you use, then it's nearly impossible to beat El Guapo. Personally, I think Zeke is more explosive and gives the better chance of a 20+ yard carry. I'll take Zeke.
Also worry things like this will come up after the season impacting his draft status(or maybe that doesn't... Free crab legs anyone?).
Isn't it also possible that having a sense of humor and being an outspoken leader could help his draft status by showing that he gets along with his teammates as well as getting the best out of them on the field?
Good discussion/debate. GO BUCKS!
I believe we've reached the agree to disagree portion of the discussion. In my opinion, if Cardale were to simply tweet out pro-OSU thoughts and "Gosh, I'm working hard at football today," then it might appease some people, but wouldn't be a true representation of a young man who obviously has a huge personality and a great sense of humor.
There is no difference. Many people tweet funny comments about everyday life and their favorite teams, why is Cardale's in poor taste?
I just cut and pasted and used the quote function. Not a big deal. I see your answers, so it all works.
If you simply take out the fear or worry from your response, then it looks like you actually don't mind his tweets, aside from maybe the Noah tweets. If they cross some sort of line and become offensive, political, racial, etc. then maybe he could stand to slow down or refocus his energy elsewhere. Until then, if he's sending out message about burritos, May Fools jokes, baseball opening pitches, and an NBA player (who, quite honestly, most people don't like, even Bulls fans) then I think this slippery slope isn't leading to anything dangerous.
