If Pryor had made the move to WR earlier it would have benefited him significantly. As it stands right now, he's a little too old and he's been in the league too long for a team to stash him on the practice squad to groom him. Beanie was a case of injuries, I think. He showed potential for greatness with the Cards but couldn't stay on the field. I thought Posey had a legit shot to be a solid 2nd receiver for years in the NFL since I never thought he had very good QB's throwing to him at OSU (I still cringe knowing we lost to UM because the QB couldn't hit him when he was wide open). I guess he's just not quite good enough.
Agree on Mike Doss, but those other guys were/are pretty good NFL players. Not HOF's by any stretch but all have been in the league for roughly 10 years which is no small feat. Doesn't AJ also hold some kind of Packers record for tackles?
All three of those guys have shown flashes. Hawk was solid in the middle for the Packers for nearly a decade. Ginn returned 2 KO's for TD's in the same game! Whitner at least one pro bowl (too lazy to look up if he made more than that). I think it's more the cas of age catching up with these guys.
Kind of a bummer that this will be on a Friday. Some of have this thing called work that we have to do.
Also, how does Whitner talk with that pacifier in his mouth? After having kids, that's all I can think of when I see those types of mouth guards.
Impressive, no doubt. However, many of these records were aided by the extra game(s). Comparing per game or per play averages in a lot of these categories vs. historic benchmarks might shed more light as to how great a season it truly was.
If you don't get chills from watching this video, you are not a buckeye. Please check your pulse, son!

i would correlate those people trying so hard to get everyone to say jif instead of gif to the pompous sports announcers trying to get everyone to say "rbi" instead of "rbi's." At some point, the pronunciation becomes a part of the vernacular and there's no sense trying to change it. No offense of course, DJ ;o)
Dual threat but definitely more pass heavy. He had about 100 rushes on the year for 600 yards. I believe that was before yesterdays game. So he runs about 7-8 times a game for about a 6.0 YPC average.
heh, was just about to post the same exact pic. How old are we that we're discussing the kid's hair style? While you're at it, get off my lawn.
Heh. I must have skimmed that section. That is pretty hard to follow there.
I didn't really notice much. A couple missed quotation marks here or there but nothing that confused me.
I noticed the same. Not that players should be responsible for reporting concussions suffered by other players, but it does make you think. How do you keep hammering on a guy on the scout team knowing that he's suffering the effects of unreported concussions?
It's just a messed up situation all the way around. I don't know why someone would want to do that to their body when they're not even playing in the games, knowing full well the toll it's taking. Man...
Wow - Boom Herron showing off the 40 time on that run. He was a highly underrated back for us. Nugent responding well to the pressure. he brought on himself down in Cincy. Some good showings by the NFL Bucks this week.
Definitely agree. After last year, I hope the officials remember this and are prepared to flag those displaying similar thuggery.
I think Curtis is leaving room for the fact that Meyer's threat may be slight hyperbole. Meyer is prone to that, you know.
I think Meyer realizes how much not having Marcus Hall cost him last year for those last two games. He doesn't want to run into a similar situation this year. Meyer hates those skunk weasels as much as we do, but you gotta be smart.
Heh, notice how Meyer stops short of giving any credit to the coaches at Michigan. He lauds their "great" players and personnel while conveniently leaving out any mention of the scUM coaches. I might be reading into it but it appears to be Meyer's way of getting a dig in a t the UM coaches and their ability to do less with more.
This is an SEC-type article, I must say. Darn tootin.
Grammar nazi says please check the first line of this article :)
There is a certain amount of discernment that goes into it, I agree. If everyone in your section is sitting at a game vs. FAMU and the bucks are up 50, then sure, sit your butt down. Otherwise, stand and cheer!!
Sounds like double speak to me, they'll say one thing to avoid the outrage but then do another once you're in the stadium. I know for a fact there are ushers that will enforce the no standing "policy" and if you refuse (because afterall, there is no rule against standing) then they will call the authorities. Bunch of BS if you ask me.
Go Shelley Meyer. The voice of reason once again. She stood up for the fans on this matter and when it came to Spring Game ticket prices as well.
