Many high schools are wearing them. They come in only 3 or 4 colors though. they're not allowed to be worn in games yet for some obvious reasons (no logo space....color etc). They are about $60 a peice. Centerville High School wears them at every practice.
Dmac I was one that argued with you about Samuel vs EZE, but must say you are right so far. E took HUGE steps foward on Saturday and Samuel took a step back. Didn't hurt that the O line is starting to come together and had a dominating performance but E looked damn good.
Whether hes released or not it is my understanding he sits a year no matter what, unless he transfers to an FCS school or DII.
The thing that aggravated me more about Smith was the dropped pass right into his freakin hands, yet 3 plays later or something like that he catches OUR punt on the fly!!
I have the same problem. Sometimes if I click on my avatar it works but usually I have to long click and select open in new tab
Ishtar was better than European Vacation...
That awkward moment when you realize every morning you jump on the internet to attend a sausagefest...
I'm gonna pretend it's an 8pm game and do what I always do...a few chores...beers by noon...watch some other games and then at 8pm curse continuously at the TV for 3 hours.
I haven't heard much made about the switches that took place in the second or third quarter when Elflien moved over. Was that just experimenting or was Boren taken out for bad snaps?
I think you're all f*@K&d in the head. We're ten hours from the f*@king fun park and you want to bail out. Well I'll tell you something. This is no longer a vacation. It's a quest. It's a quest for fun. You're gonna have fun, and I'm gonna have fun... We're all gonna have so much f*@king fun we're gonna need plastic surgery to remove our goddamn smiles! You'll be whistling 'Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah' out of your assholes! I must be crazy! I'm on a pilgrimage to see a moose. Praise Marty Moose! Holy Shit!
Put that way you do make complete sense. I would expect E to get the majority of touches as well. If we need 2 yards I hope hes the one with the ball. Like I said earlier, improved O line and recievers and we won't have to worry so much about who's carriying! Go Bucks!
How do you figure its the opinion of the coaching staff? Just wondering? Samuel is not coming in for mop up duty. He is a real and viablle part of the offense and should be. I'm not in the coaching meetings by any meetings and unless I'm wrong, niether are you. EZE starts and thats about as much as you can draw from the opinion of the coaches.
I'm not saying that samuel is the better back than E. What I'm saying is that I don't believe E is that much better than Samuel.
You're fooling yourself if you think there is going to be a feature back this year. Both backs have their strengths. I'm mystified how you can watch these games and believe that E is so much better than Samuel. I must be watching different games.
On another note I'm so tired of hearing about fans wanting "a back like Hyde". We don't have one. Rod Smith is clearly not the one and Brionte Dunn may never see the field again on whatever is left of his OSU career. Hyde was an amazing back and next to Eddie George and Kieth Byars, he is on of my favorites. He had a once every 10 year offensive line to run behind also. Our current backs have a young, inexperienced line that after yesterday I still don't beliieve is set in stone as far as the starters and where they start at are.
as a whole, I am much more concerned with the recieving corp. we have a home run threat (smith), an emerging star (Thomas)' a starter that hasn't done much and tends to disappear(Spencer), and an inconsistent guy that may lead the team in targets and drops (C. Smith). If the recievers don't start getting it together and the line doesn't show improvement it's not gonna matter who the ballcarrier is.
Have we seen the last of Brionte Dunn? What gives I wonder? Even Ball got carries before him and then of course he promptly fumbles. If we sign Harris, I surely don't see him sticking around. I just wonder what his issues are after hearing good things about him in the spring.
Poor offensive line...no improvement in defensivebackfield...no running game...recievers that can't get open with an 8 man front...defensive line did not lose this game.
As someone in the sports apparel industry I like the alt looks. I really do like the "chrome" unis but they're getting tiresome now and theyre on a losing streak. I would love to see all gray unis with scarlet and white accents. I think that would be hot. Not sure which helmet but maybe a matte gray as well. I am in the minority who thinks that we would have the coolest all black unis ever in the history of black unis, but thats just me.
Bobby Olive...nuff said
I was there for both as well. The "Shoe" game was day against Illinois. We were down 21-0 and came back. Iowa was late afternoon into night and it poured down rain the entire time!
My only complaint about Barret is his run reads. Many times if he keeps the ball he picks up 4-6 yards but continually gave it up for short gains and losses. Not comparing him to Braxton at all but in that game Braxton has 2 long touchdowns because he sees the reads. The offensive line was just that...offensive. They HAVE to improve or we're in trouble. VT amd MSU are MUCH better than Navy.
I believe that my favorite beer is my next beer...
Don't sleep on Jeff Greene!
If Gibson does committ to the good guys in October, we could have an embarrasment of riches at the QB position the next few years with Barrett, Gibson, Clark AND Braxton! Throw Collier and Burrows in there and I'd say we have a plethora of quartebacks!
I was there that day and it gives me chills everytime I hear it! It was below zero that day!
