My disdain for Herbie is well documented here, but it bears repeating. Not only did he rank Arkansas above us in the final poll after we beat them, he also was downright giddy outing the Tat-5 situation on primetime while simultaneously telling the nation to give Cam Newton the benefit of the doubt until all the evidence in his situation was out. It was also particularly disgusting that he blamed Buckeye fans for his relocation to Tennessee, despite the fact that his house had been on the market for some time at that point.
I know there is a fringe element of our fan base that can be, let's say, a bit overwhelming; however, simply making comments on TV about our schemes, or where we make lack depth or something of that nature would probably not raise the ire of those folks (maybe some because I am sure every fan base has a tree poisoner waiting to happen).
I think those of us who do not care for Herbie are legitimate in their feelings as I am sure he has supporters whose feelings are just as valid. I do disagree with DJ though, it is not at all hard to figure out why there is a portion of the Nation who do not care for frosty-locks. We took beating after beating after beating during Tat-gate and Herbie sat silent. Or worse, he opened his mouth and offered more criticism. The ESPN viewing audience can cheerlead his version of objectivity all day, I'm sorry I'm not sorry for expecting more from one of our, um, distinguished alum during some of our darkest hours in recent memory.
Been to a few games that look similar to this at the Ralph. Only been in one Buffalo blizzard however. Not anxious to be in another....
I don't think the name makes much difference because when someone replies to one of my comments I am usually referred to as 'him' or 'he', lol.
Not sure how many ladies are still here lurking around. This site has grown exponentially since I first discovered it (my profile has the year you sign up, but I had to reset my account once, so I'm not sure when exactly I started visiting, but I know it was before the date). I was then joined by Pam and I think it was the two of us for awhile--we even got a shout-out in a Skully once! I haven't seen Pam around here much in a few years, but I'm pretty sure in addition to BamaMike's wife, we also have a woman in Idaho Helga.
I don't post as much as I used to (I know that I am just a few stickers away from The Premium Lounge, so I am exited about that!) but its mostly because with the growth of the 11W Community, but the time I get to an article, someone has usually expressed my thoughts for me. I still visit multiple times a day and simply could not fully enjoy Buckeye football without this site and all of you!
It's my favorite number, Navy not exactly a defensive power and lots of playmakers hungry (and angry) playing with a chip on their shoulder.
I was wondering if I should wait until after the season starts. Sounds like a good plan. Appy State is coming to town after all....
I am seeing some discussion about police procedures related to searching cars between suspects and such. I would like to share my observations having been on scene as a first responder with different levels of law enforcement dozens of times. I have not ever seen a law enforcement vehicle searched between suspects. The reason being is that each person is searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the back of the vehicle. Simple as that. NO ONE goes in the back of the car unsearched and/or unsecured. Would be very difficult for Sprinkle to remove the drugs from where he was holding them and then hide them in the car if he was handcuffed. And if he wasn't? Well, if an officer had that large a lapse in judgment, the likely procedural errors alone will make it almost impossible to convince a state attorney to push the charge through. I just don't see a scenario that ends in an actual charge being pursued.
Remember, the scene was described as mayhem. I'm not saying that Law Enforcement didn't do their job or that they did anything to compromise the public safety or anything along those lines. I love those men and women. I just know from experience that sometimes when the sh*t is going down procedural mistakes can be made. From a legal standpoint, this creates a large amount of wiggle room in a criminal case. The more wiggle room, the less likely the charge. Now, this is good news for Sprinkle. If of course it wasn't his cocaine. If it was, well, that's the really bad part of what happens when small procedural things get over-looked; the bad guy gets away with it and doesn't the help they need or the punishment they deserve.
And for those who are jumping on the 'rush to judgment' freight train, do you recall that one time Carlos Hyde beat up that girl because someone drew a picture of it? Yeah, me neither. Calm down and see what happens.
The Titanic sinks. Shhhh
A female trait?
