Just spent 2 days sweating my ass off camping, and since it was too hot to move much, we sat in the shade & mostly talked about how we couldn't wait for football season to get here! Media days bleed into the start of camp, then you blink and the Buckeyes are running out of the tunnel for that first game. Gonna be a good season, I can feel it.

Go Bucks!

He was all set up to have his shot after 4 years of grinding, but threw it away because he can't control his temper. Personally, I will never understand how any man can hit a woman, and I am thankful for that. Hopefully she can recover from the experience, and get on with her life. Dunn is going to have to pay his dues, and then hopefully get some help for his anger issues.

I LOVE the fact that Urban makes it so clear to his players that this type of transgression is completely unacceptable, and there is zero tolerance.

Very impressive bio indeed, and what a wonderful opportunity for these young men. I do wonder though, if any of them know McNamara looks identical to Lewis in Revenge of the Nerds...? Uncanny.

This would be mine as well, or perhaps the 1996 UM game.

Wolverines marched through a sport still in its infancy en route to another triumphant national title that only reptiles and one elderly Italian widow can truly cherish.

Awesome Ramzy. Saving this one for my UM buddies once the rhetoric heats up again in a couple of months. 

And in no way would I alter the outcome of the 2006 Natty, unless there is a guarantee that change in no way impacts Urban's eventual arrival in Columbus.

This...yes this is the biggest dick move out there. Best counter move is the semi's that straddle the lane and keep drivers from doing this manuever. I tried it once, but as soon as one jack-hole passed me half in the grass...I moved over. I'll let someone else play Smokey & the Bandit these days....

Amen. And Columbus' finest don't help the situation when they leave the vehicles in the middle of the road! Unless it is a serious accident with injuries, move that febder bender shit to the side of the road!

SoulPatrol hit the nail on the head with his comments. Every class has athletes that can play multiple positions, and will eventually settle into one specific role. This staff obviously knows how to evaluate, and coach talent, so hopefully Malik is another "Darron Lee"...or better yet, the first Malik Harrison, and another 3-Star OSU success story.

As a product of Columbus City Schools, I am really pulling for Malik to be a special player. The most decorated player in OSU history, think 2-Heisman Trophies, is a City League product. I know times have changes, and OSU recruits nationally, and City League is not generally considered top competition, but Malik has the athletism, work-ethic, desire, & character to have a memorable career regardless of where he played HS ball. 

In the end, if he gets to play in front of 100K plus fans multiple times, gets all of those coveted OSU football alumni connections, have his family at all his home games, and gets a degree from The Ohio State University, then he is already is rarefied air.

Good luck to Mailk, and forever GO BUCKS!

I listened to it, and thought he did a great job, no shocker there I guess. He mentioned 11W once in reference to some pics & thoughts he posted recently as well...he still loves us.

Comment 22 Jun 2016

Yes, I saw his last Hurry Up with goodbyes, just wondering where he went. And I see that has been handled below.


Comment 22 Jun 2016

Been on & off here lately due to RL commitments, and this as good a place as any on 11W to ask...where did Birm go, or does the Gen Pub know that yet?

I'll hang up and listen...

A. Thad & company may have realized this kid would not "fit in" for whatever reason, or

B. NC State appealed more to the kid, either due to coaches' promises, personality, or whatever. 

I'd prefer to have kids who really want to be at OSU and want to learn from our coaches than someone who takes up a schollie and then transfers after a season or less.

 This is pretty much what happened. Not at liberty to divulge the sources, but this one smelled a little too much like a few other recent recruits who did not want to earn their stripes & wanted instant playing time. Unfortunately this seems like a trend in general, not just here. The B-ball staff has little margin for error with the few schollies they have to dish, so lessons have been learned the last few recruiting cycles.

I'm good with the 4 we have coming in, and the return of Coach Jent. Go Bucks!
