It would be the highest total they've put up in Columbus since 1946.
"Tried the corner and missed..."
I'd take the high expectations and top 10 cash that comes with it, but I definitely get your point.
Probably an SEC fan based on the math skills alone.
13, and damn proud of it... but you already knew that.
Maybe he infiltrated Bama's spring game to recruit for OSU...
I believe so, yes. Sorry, my post wasn't meant to put any of those players down in any way. They are just some of the guys, in recent memory, who had stand out performances at the Spring Game. In fairness, I should have added Michael Thomas to that list, as he had a huge day in 2012 (I believe).
Tribute to some of the greats...
As a HS punter and stat nerd, I'd like to put a little perspective on this kid's talent, purely based on the highlight video and Vico's write-up.
If he averaged 46.4 on 17 punts, then he punted for just under 800 yards on the year. The tape shows 8 of those punts (6 blasts, 1 pooch, and 1 good punt that was fumbled) for a total of roughly 444 yards. So, the average punt distance on his highlight tape is 55.5 yards, which is absolutely, insanely monstrous. Taking those punts out, the remaining 9 punts of his season still averaged out to over 38 yards per kick, and there were likely several pooches in there, since he managed to drop over half inside the 20. The 38+ yard per punt average of his "not good enough for a highlight video" kicks would still have him ranked in the top 10 in the state. For the record, his unseen punts would have ranked him just above my HS average.
Welcome to OSU!
Eh, I don't mind him so much, but I won't stop you from hating someone from TSUN.
Agreed on the Dexter series. It certainly didn't have the emotional pull to the characters, for me, that Breaking Bad did, but was always entertaining. That said, and without being a spoiler, I'd love to see another version of Dexter brought back to life since the finale left a bad taste.
For the down-voter, I'd love to actually discuss the shows if you'd like, as opposed to hitting a down-vote button on someone's opinion. Saul is an excellent show, just a much different mold than TWD.
TWD has it's off-episodes, for sure, but this season was phenomenal. For me, I'd actually switch TWD and Saul in your comment for it to read properly.
Can't decide what's better right now: Better Call Saul or The Americans, but I do know fans of The Walking Dead owe me an apology as their show isn't even playing the same sport.
Sorry, DJ, but I'm gonna have to sort of disagree here. The Walking Dead is definitely one of the best shows out there right now, and The Americans is way up there too. I like Better Call Saul thus far, but if I hadn't watched Breaking Bad and known the connections, it would only be in the "meh, if I have time I guess I'll turn it on" category. It's riding some brilliant coattails right now. I will say, if it were a show only about Mike Ehrmantraut, I'd be all in every week. My #HotTake.
He's not wrong. It's absolutely absurd.
I'm not trying to put Donte down, as he's one of my favorite Buckeyes, but let's face it (regarding the tackling numbers), Browns safeties are going to continue to have big tackling stats, unfortunately. This may not be a product of his excellent play as much as our DL and LBs not being able to stop anything until the 3rd level.
When commenting, the capital I that's slightly tilted toward the S with a line through it helps make your sarcasm easier to identify. In all seriousness, OSU has missed on a couple of big in-state guys, but has done pretty well in recruiting and amazingly well at developing OL talent. We lost a whole lot, but I am not prepared to buckle up for a rough year.
It could end up being unreasonably optimistic, but until more information comes out, I'm sticking with that as opposed to "#FireMatta."
I know that is not your take, simply one that seems to be very prevalent recently.
I realize that the sky is falling, and I'm alarmed by these announcements too, but Greg Oden, Mike Conley and Jared Sullinger aren't walking out the door. This is (potentially, if the Harris rumors are true as well) 13 points per game total and 4 new scholarships.
Agree completely. But, as others have said, we have no idea what's causing this exodus away from the program. It could be exactly what is needed if, in fact, these players were a part of the issue.
As Birm said, let's just let it play out. Damning us to a sub-.500 stretch through 2020 seems a tad dramatic.
