Illegitimi non carborundum
Very good point, but life is about the gamble. A heisman and NC is worth a million bucks over the course of a lifetime in Columbus, ask Krenzel. A couple hundred grand signing bonus and an unguaranteed contract has much less long term possibilities.
90% he takes redshirt, what kind of nfl prospects does he have now? 5-7 rounder at best in my opinion why not try to come back
Makes me wonder what is happening in the parallel universe where Les Miles took the job. Any thoughts?

What???? Survivor=vomit? Next thing I know you are going to start bashing Big Brother! One of the greatest dramas unfolding this summer, and every summer for that matter. What else you going to watch in August that's on three times a week! As for Survivor how can you not like watching people run out of energy and food, get pissed at each other and have nothing better to do than bitch?
NOTICE: NO ITALICS, people laugh but I really do love Big Brother and Survivor. They better never cancel them. You are a fruit loop dingus if you consider them vomit (as Zach from Big Brother would say).
I respect your opinion, and your right to have one. However I wholeheartedly and vehemently disagree with your assessment (which I suspect may not be a product of actually watching the show all that much).
Unless I'm mistaken the Indians main catcher is Yan Gomes. But a Johnny Gomes Brandon Phillips fight would be entertaining.
I do have a strong dislike for Yadier Molina too and welcome any come-uppance he might get.

My personal belief in all sports is that a rivalry is only created when there is one of three things:
A) Some kind of fight or monumental moment that creates ire
B) Most importantly a game, or in baseball's case maybe a series, that can be pointed to that broke the heart of one team.
C) A large sample size of games to look at over different seasons where each team has had success over the other.
Before at least one of those things (and really all need to happen) there is no rivalry.
Ergo Reds beat Indians in World Series, next year Phillips taps Gomes on the knee pads going to bat and Cueto spikes Nick Swisher during the ensuing melee and now you got a rivalry.
But I do like watching the series every year and definitely like holding Reds series wins over my Indians fan friends.
My broken record thoughts:
Top flight recruits rarely commit early.
Offer lists are more important than stars.
Lower star guys often have a lot of drive and want to prove people wrong.
Lower star recruits are often victims of circumstance due to geography and quality of competition and are thus difficult to evaluate.
We have solid commits doing work as we speak.
One or two key commits can start the avalanche again.
Urban always closes well.
I am not worried.
I tire of the redundancy of these comments. If you have watched tOSU recruiting for the last ten years than you know the lesser star players have meant so much and many 5stars have struggled, go back and look at aj hawk versus mike d'andrea (sorry Mike I know injuries cut short your career). But that's the tip of the iceberg.
I think there is a high likelihood that Grant Schmidt will be a better college player than Seantrel Henderson or about a hundred of other underachieving me first OL. There is something to be said about character and coachability.
The 2014 NFL drafts had about 15 three stars taken in the first round.
Again so tired of hearing these negative things about someone you don't know about. If the scouts, rivals and 247 people were better at their jobs (not to say they don't do a great job, which they do) they would be on a college teams staff and not writing online. I think it's fair to say a diamond in the rough could be found somewhere the scouts arent looking. Ever hear of Neon Boudeaux?
Thank you, I knew there was a page somewhere. Now I know, and knowing is half the battle
I always jock Jerry Lucas, but him and Havlicek have to be up there in greatest duos. A sleeper duo I enjoyed was Delonte West and Jameer Nelson on St. Joes. Delonte West sure was a character, I found the gif of him wet willying Gordon Hayward but I can't figure out how to attach it, I know its been asked many times but how do I put them in?
I was heartbroken but not surprised. As I posted in other threads, and I apologize to beat a dead horse, but the Bengals have repeatedly spurned former Buckeyes only to take players on teams and in conferences that have been the villain to Ohioans. It is a peculiar practice (Maualuga instead of Laurinaitis, Chris Perry instead of Gamble, Leon Hall, Carlos Dunlap, Geno Atkins, Darqueeze Denard, a fun exercise would be to see how many more can be named like I've said before that's without really trying) and while several of these picks cannot be argued with because of results it is still maddening to me (there are also a horde of FA signings too of other players that specifically stick in the craw of us Buckeyes, see Mays, Taylor and Nelson, Reggie). If all things are equal (or even 80% equal) like they were in the Hyde Hill fiasco you would think the Bengals execs and Mike Brown specifically would be greedy and choose to sell more tickets and jerseys (how many Hyde jerseys sell immediately versus an LSU back? gotta be enough to pay for his rookie contract almost).
Perhaps someone a little older than I could chime in here but I remember there being issues between the Brown family and the Buckeyes that may have precipitated this (I know the Browns had an issue with Modell too).
They did it! they took Darqueeze (kind of had to it's a good fit)! My Bengals only want buckeye killers, so frustrating, especially when the stupid steelers take all the bucks. ARGH
I'd gladly take dissapointment of Ginn and Kumerow over the reality that the Bengals have drafted Chris Perry, Rey Maualauga, Leon Hall, Carlos Dunlap, Andre Caldwell and have Taylor Mays and Reggie Nelson (thats seven buckeye killers without even thinking I have to root for). It's like a SEC USC team, yuk. Give me Roby, Hyde or Shazier, PLEASE do not take Taylor Lewan or Tajh Boyd (although he isn't so bad) or Darqueeze Denard.
I like all the fat security guards on segues. America is full of fatties so it's not much of a stretch that a supermarket in Florida (Tallahassee especially) would require a half dozen 300 pound security guards on segues to protect the food. And now Carrabas is offering free refills on pasta too just like Olive Garden! I wish I could invent an unobtrusive artery declogger (don't steal my idea guys)
How's that? I'm confused? I only have 4 years of eligibility and am 30 with a bad back, presuming I never get hit and they let me use my rocket skates I'm the next big thing, but that still leaves three years. When are you arriving?
Interesting graph. It did raise some questions in my head, specifically where is Tate's health? Is there a chance he will redshirt because of his inability to get to full speed on top of him being a freshman? Second why is Marc Loving's projected minutes so low (16 minutes a game)? I'm hoping Loving's offense will evolve from March to November and he will need to be on the floor a lot. Has anything happened in your eyes that would contradict that logic?
Thanks for the info, definitely got the brain juice squishing.

It's a formidable scent...it stings the nostrils, in a good way...I've gotta tell you that smells like pure gasoline.
ha, love it
I prefer Dr. K, 4 12 packs for 9 dollars, can't beat that price. Dr. K should sponsor the college playoff.
He did not have an undefeated season with Florida. 2008 they lost to Ole Miss, 2006 they lost to Auburn.
really tough schedule going forward. If you look to the strength of schedule, like Woody Paige does, then we have our work cut out for us. Fingers crossed.
