Carbon freeze yourself until football season. No sense in aging while there are no Buckeye games.

Knight was a mixed bag. The shot above shows he failed to live up to the standards of behavior he expected out of his players. You can't be a diciplinarian toward your players but then be a discipline problem to your university. 

There were good things about Knight too.  You can bet your a$$ his players attended class and they learned great fundamentals.

I climbed the Left Buttress of Middle Cathedral peak in Yosemite. The climb ascends about 1100 feet and took all day for my climbing party to climb up and hike back down (i.e. climb up the face, hike down in the path to the side). The climbing was a blast and the views of El Capitan across the Yosemite Valley meadow were spectacular.

If it's not a big game I might start watching 30-40 minutes late.  I skip through the commercials in the first half, skip halftime and am live by the third quarter.  Big games or when multiple good games are being played at once, gotta be live.

Mariots is way way way better at reading defenses and is much more accurate than Braxton.  He is light years ahead of Braxton as a throwing QB.  Braxton is the more explosive runner and better overalll athlete.

I thought this was an article about his circumsision. 

Comment 23 Feb 2015

I also thought about Terminator 2, but you have to enjoy Terminator 1 considering it probably has well less than 10% of the budget of T2. The effects were poor compared to modern movies, but such a great original story.

Amen brother. I hated that they skipped the whole part where the white wizard takes over the shire...to make that omission such a slap in the face they replaced it with 45 minutes of tearful hobbit man love goodbye scenes.

So glad to hear 618 is OK and will be seeking help.

Brighter days are ahead 618. It may be difficult to believe that now, but so many people here have shown that one can rise from the depths of despair. Keep fighting brother, we are behind you. 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

I think the draft analst(s) quoted in the article are spot on for Bennett and Grant, but optimistic for Smith and Heuerman.  My best guess:

Michael Bennett - second round, perhaps early side of round 2

Doran Grant - middle rounds (3-5) seems right

Jeff Heuerman - late rounds 5-6.  Can't see him getting selected before Nick O'Leary from FSU no matter what Heuerman does at the combine. Will have great measurables, but only 'good' film.  

Devin Smith - middle rounds.  I don't see how his lack of short to medium receptions won't hurt him. Unless he improves there, teams should give him a cushion and make sure he doesn't get behind them. No catches at the Senior Bowl. 

More important than the draft position, all 4 of these guys will make a 53 man roaster next fall. We have some guys who will be undrafted free agents who will make a serious run at a roaster next year.

I'd also vote Battle Star Galactica as one of the best written/acted shows ever. yo don't even need to be a sci-fi fan to like, it - it was a great character driven drama. 

Comment 15 Feb 2015

I would vote The Shield as having had the best ever series finale. All and all Breaking bad was a better show, but The Shield had the best series finale. 

Comment 15 Feb 2015

The team has it all so I am going to go with playing really really smart football.   A couple examples:

* Alabama game opening kickoff - we should have played until we heard the whistle.  Imagine that we would have recovered the football in the endzone and been up 7-0 with no time expired! 

* Alabama onside kick - great kick, the ball took a high bounce and went about 11 yards...but then we inexplicibly let it bounce again and it took another high bounce.  Without a great play by Spencer Alabama recovers the ball. Spencer's great catch was unnessesary, someone should have caught the ball on the first bounce  uncontested. 

* stop the unforced turnovers i.e. the Cardale double handoff. 

Comment 12 Feb 2015

Well stated, but I disagree.  The rule is not just for players who are not getting playing time the rule is to reward players who get their degree. This kid has more to gain by transferring to Oregon (i.e. a better shot at getting drafted) than the kids who can't make the starting line-up at places like Ohio State, who might gain playing time by transferring but will likely never be an NFL draft pick. 

Comment 12 Feb 2015

Agree 100%. The game is already stacked in favor of the coaches and not the players.  Now this coach is complaining about the only rule that puts a little power back in the hands of players who did their job in the classroom. 

Comment 10 Feb 2015

This makes perfect sense.  Taking a junior now is like the NFL drafting players in August, before they played their senior year in college and before the combine. The draft results would be substantially different.  This is even more true with high school kids who are still physically developing. 

Urban and staff may be good talent evaluators, but more film, more camps = better evaluation.  

For instance Guarantano might be slightly ahead of Haskins as of right now. But Urban would be in a better position to judge if they both camp at OSU.  He would be in an even better place to judge if they camp at OSU then he gets to see film of their senior year.  

I've seen several articles basically saying college coaches have signees every year that they don't really want but decided the bad PR from pulling a schollie is worse than having a player that won't contribute. These are teh kids who committed early but didn't continue to develop.  

Comment 10 Feb 2015

We will accept commitments from 5 star recruits at any time but will have to slow play many thereafter.
