  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

This Musketeer.  He was held and pulled down.  Not a single announcer seemed to acknowledge that as a possibility.

Bamamike!  Good to hear from ya, haven't seen ya in a while.  

We would give you Cardale Jones but your safeties wouldn't be able to survive getting trucked everyday in practice.

To properly discuss who the starting QB is, we must also debate whether or not Braxton is transferring, so we know exaclty what QB's we have to work with.

Fake teeth popping out and a dude settin his own beard on fire.  (Yes)

Oregon fans can shut it.  Their player choked our boy on the ground.  Bosa may or may not have been late, but it wasn't dirty at all.  At best, we're even in that department.

Do you possibly use IE (we're forced to at work)?  I could not type a simple comment without getting the same thing you're getting.  When I went to type it in my phone, it went through just fine.

Well said.

It's impressive to have a fall from the top, get back up and get back to the top (quickly) - yet somehow do MORE.  Seriously, how does he do it?  He's doing the health/stress thing better, he's recruiting as good or better, he's doing the family thing better, he's doing more to prepare his players for life, he's doing as much or more in the community...

The man's a machine...with a heart.

People from Florida, Michigan, and I'm sure other places call him a liar, cheater, and worse on the internet, and you think he's worried about a little story like this?  It's just a little tidbit with no negative spin at all.  Woody Hayes is a legend that still gets talked about to this day becuase of tidbits like this (well tidbits that are better than this particular one).  You might even say that the discussion that generated above about letting celebs have their space was a positive outcome from this little story.  I regret nothing.

They aren't just losing key players, they're losing a LOT of starters.  Like 18 out of 22 or something crazy like that!  I know they have talent and recruit well etc., but that's a LOT to replace.  Someone above said their development this year will be crucial, and I agree.  My guess is, with a new QB, mostly new O-line, they will rely heavily on Derrick Henry and likely look a bit shaky early on.  However, they could start clicking by mid- to late-season and could be a CFP contender.  I think the 7-10 range for pre-season rank is about right.

I remember this from my freshman year NCAA "lesson."  Something called natural progress, or continual progress towards an actual degree at a certain rate.

Yeh I agree Seattle, and with others below.  He's trying to have balance this go-around.  We don't want him to burn out.

That said, I'd prolly be a little star struck too, but in the end an autograph is just a piece of paper with some ink on it.  The actual memory and story to tell when you see someone famous is more valuable IMO, so let the man live.

Heck I get so into soccer games (in a good way, I swear) when my girls are playing, it bugs me some when people (even my other daughters lol) talk to me.  I'm sure he'd love to just watch the game, especially given his baseball background.
