Frimmel, where did you see Coach Combs?
Spielman hands down...If you read his autobiography he used to put on a sweatsuit in the hottest days of summer, climb in his truck, turn the heater all the way up, drive around chewing tobacco. All this was just to test his physical limits.
In the summer on 1997 I participated in the Ohio State Football Summer Camp. Over the summer many former buckeyes come back to workout. I had the opportunity to watch Joey Galloway, Eddie George, Terry Glenn, Shawn Springs and Chris Spielman run 40 yd dashes together. All were wearing parachute type harnesses, Spielman was also wearing a weighted vest with about 20 pouches with some type of weight in them. All took their marks, on the whistle Spielman roasted everyone to the 10 yard mark at 15yds it was even again and at 20 he was in the back of the pack. I was amazed at the way he just out worked everybody. I also had the opportunity to see Andy Katzenmoyer power clean...the quickness that he moved a massive amount of weight was amazing.
Spielman is also noted for playing through a torn bicep and ripped pectoral muscle. Most importantly, he stepped away to be a husband. In the Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson era of the NFL there needs to be more MEN like Chris.
This rule change will change how offensive linemen block on a play action pass. If O-linemen can't give the impression that they are coming up to the second level it will be a huuugge key to the defense. I could be wrong, but part of the game is predicated on misdirection, false keys and deception. If a rule change isn't for safety, let's leave it alone so this sport does not evolve into basketball on turf.
The Browns have quite a decision to make...keep a partying QB or let him go? I say flip a coin...
They also ran a trailer for the new documentary on the TTUN...here's a sneak peak
Look at the people in the background...they could care less
I went to the Rutgers game this season. Here are a couple of things I observed from that weekend:
1.) The three "superfans" pictured above had a steady stream of people making their way down to the front rail to get their photos taken with these clowns. This required "superfans" to watch the crowd behind them and not the game. In fact most of the time I took a peek from my lofty perch I witnessed the annoyed fans in the same sections as Buck-I-guy and Big Nut trying to watch the game. If these dudes really want to be fans, do so and watch the game cheer on your team and quit acting like trained circus monkeys looking for the next banana.
2.) As I returned to my hotel Friday before the game I noticed BIG NUT was parked in a handicap spot(placard was displayed). For a guy that
needs to utilize handicap parking, he sure gets around the tailgate parking lots pretty damn good. If he has a legit mobility issue, I'm not seeing it. Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree here, but I work with adults with disabilities so this really pissed me off.
I believe we all have the right to do our own thing, so long as it doesn't interfere with the game experience of other fans. I have my own ideas as to what I think a fan should be.(RIP Neutron Man)
I recently spoke with someone who works with BIG NUT. He informed me that it was his understanding that BIG NUT receives tickets and potentially more from TOSU. If this is the case, isn't it possible to start a petition to stop this? I really don't like spewing hate, but these guys(superfans) are not the face of the fanbase. We need to spread the word to our fellow Buckeye fan and let them make an informed decision. 11W's I'm not looking to start a parking lot war, but I propose we start calling these guys out for what they are. Ask questions when we come in contact.
I could be waaay off base here, but we can bitch and complain or we can act. Ideas?
I'm guessing that Big Nut will sit the match out judging by his handicap placard....but I'm guessing he'll have front row seats and be on camera.
I created my account back in these days..
Glad to see Boone pulled it together.
Sometimes it isn't the skills of a coordinator that makes them a good hire. Beck will have his own views and opinions, but all in alll he is being hired to coach the system Urban wants to use.
I'm guessing Urban has done his homework. How many of us knew who this Tom Herman guy was when he was hired. I'm sure Urban has a plan for him and isn't going to scrap what we are doing with our QB's now. Beck will learn to coach what Urban wants, bringing his own skills and experiences to the table. As for being critical of his resume, past, etc.; I'm going to trust UFM on this one. The guys knows how to develop asst. coaches. Keep Calm and trust UFM!
With NFL money he'll be able to buy a lot of crab legs...
Man mumu...a square yard of something
Straight up goosebumps...Man in Black + OSU Football= F'n Genius
I must just be in a bad mood. I have lost my patience with crap like this. Good thing I don't have keys to the 11W jail today.
It is crap like this thread that has watered this site down. This kind of stuff is a waste of time.
What 3rd world stank hole inhabitants are going to be wearing the Alabama won not done t-shirts?
There is probably a place in *ichigan that sells them and does quite well...
Swing pass to EZE...6 points
6....his leg snaps on the first hit.
I hope Urban got a hold of this and played it on a reel throughout every practice at the superdome...
