I agree. I think CC offers a confidence and humor to his usually intelligent commentary and analysis that is lacking for Herbie and Eddie. Herbie occasionally gets on my nerves, though he's clearly the biggest brand of these names in the business and likely earns more criticism on a daily basis than all of the other folks combined.
M Man, can you clarify?
If Lewan never said any of this, then why was it reported to the Office of Student Affairs by two of his own teammates? Are you also implying that the other UM football players were lying, or that that portion never happened? Or, I suppose, another option that the statements were made, but simply made to or around his football teammates and not to the victim?
In the first minute of the highlight film I saw two muffed returns and a taunting penalty. Aside from that, he appeared to have good speed and vision.
The JP in your name doesn't stand for Jack Park does it? Well done on the attendance history.
I think you briefly touched on this in your Craft description, but "deceptively athletic" (along with deceptively fast/agile, etc.) = caucasian, yes?
@BucksFanXC - After reading his description of the event, take that as a blessing.
Got goosebumps watching that again. One of my OSU favorite highlight videos of all time. The 3:54 mark is the definition of TGJ. He had just made a cut and there are two Hoosiers within a yard and a half of him, and already running at full speed and he pulls away in 2-3 strides.
Agree with Hovenaut that having Hubbard listed as a 3* is ridiculous (not for 11W, for whichever ranking site didn't do their homework). Voted for Nuernberger, as I think he makes an immediate impact this year and leaves OSU in the top 4 of career scoring leaders....not setting the bar high, am I?
That's a lot of speculation without seeing what any of them can do yet.
I disagree on the leadership part, unless you're equating leadership to scoring ability. To me, Craft and Smith, among others, appears to be excellent leaders in the way they carry themselves and hustle. They're everything you'd want in players or teammates.
However, leadership doesn't put the ball in the hoop. Right now, we have a big man who plays about 6 inches shorter than his height and can't catch, lots of solid defenders and athletes who are mediocre shooters at best, and no true perimeter threat.
Nice to see Navy is 122nd in the country in passing offense... Phew!
I think you're going to see that every year. Next year's QB class has big names too.
"Loose One Turn" is my favorite
Thad's air guitar is legen...wait for it
Saturday will be a great test for this defense, though I'm sure their score was a bit lopsided since Grambling players had to walk from Louisiana to Wisconsin for the game. Too soon?
Yes, he was in great position to make a tackle or potential game-changing play. However, he had an obvious personal foul that gave them better field position. Obviously, it's Sparty, so they did very little with it. That said, I'm fine with him on special teams.
Maybe a combo of both if we can successfully hook up some Boren men with Mitchell women or vice versa. Though I'm not a fan of either a Moren or Bitchell combined name. How about a hybrid Bitchen family?
Any word on if the oldest siblings in the Mitchell clan have kids yet? Might as well keep this thing going...
Love those UM stats. So, just to recap, John Simon and Ryan Shazier had 14 combined sacks last year and the entire UM team had 12. I love football.
Don't know him personally, but I work with his mother and the entire family seems very down-to-earth. Athleticism aside, if he comes to OSU, we'll be getting a very good kid.
As Knarcisi said, I am expecting it from Washington and Spence, however unfairly it might be to put that on their shoulders as sophomores. I voted "Other" mostly with Vonn Bell in mind as someone I think could have an immediate impact in the secondary on certain formations, and possibly on special teams as well.
I certainly hope that Hyde hits the 1000 yard mark, not just for himself, but for future OSU RB recruits, as I would assume that other schools' coaches try to use that as a way to lure prospects away from Ohio State.
However, if he doesn't hit the mark, then I hope it's because he ended up 900+, Braxton had 500+, Smith had 500+, Dunn had 300+, Ball had 150+, Wilson/Marshall/Elliot had 400+, and so on...
While earning 3rd place honors in the 100m dash, Mitchell also won the state title in the shot put. Not a bad combination of speed and strength, as noted with the SPARQ events.
