I blame Luke Fickellll.

Maybe Mixon and Ray Rice can found a new organization that helps hulking, agitated athletes overcome their fear of tiny, aggressive young women who mean to do them bodily harm.

Drone strike on that meeting hall.

The staff here have inferred many times that journalistic integrity may not always be the highest priority here, however receiving information that is generally more in-depth, and accurate (FOR FREE) than the premium sites is what makes 11W special. Now, I'm sure that if a titan of the media universe, say E$PN, decided that DJ's "garbage" was worth top dollar, he would be relocating to Bristol. So until that happens, I guess we will all wait for you to create another FREE option that does a better job posting garbage than this one.

Had this same discussion/mini-argument with my (female) neighbor. She indicated that the incidents cited in the report did not seem very "alarming" and none of them offended her. Plus all this stuff was happening before Waters awas the director etc. etc. I introduced your angle, explaining (or refreshing her awareness) that it is in fact 2014, and opinion is king. If an individual is in a position that holds great accountability for many other people, you better make sure there isn't anything going down that even one of those people may deem inappropriate, because you will lose when the shit hits the fan. And that's not an opinion, that is a fact.

Love the Ginn/Hitner visit, that must have been unbelievable for those kids. What a storied program, I hope they bring a title (or 3) home for Coach G sooner than later.

I remember that play! Funny, I can't remember what day it is half the time, but I can remember one play that happened in 1985! Thanks for the link.

You gents have inspired me to wear my 36 jersey camping this weekend.

I'll always remember that Iowa game, and I'm pretty sure a piece of the goal post ended up at Papa Joe's. I was too young to go to the bars in 1985, but I went straight to an epic party afterwards, which is where another benchmark in my young life occurred (thank you Sheila). Arguably the best pre-21 night of my life.

And I might trade those memories for the chance to hear the old stadium announcer say "Tackle by number 36, Marcus Marek" one more time. 

I have been waiting for Day 36...thanks for the write-up Remy, you did it justice.

OSU isn't UK, they have to be very selective with their scholarships, and it's pretty obvious they rated the chatty kid who committed to ttun higher. A mistake perhaps? Why yes Barnsey, perhaps. And now this kid has obviously improved, and we want him...stranger things have happened. If he gets the offer he commits...he has too, otherwise there is a good chance that Birm will choking on some leather.

Did he run that time on the grass at Herbstreit's mansion? Was Kenny Chesney holding the stop-watch? Were any SEC coaches or E$PN executives present? Very important details if one is to determine the validity of this claim....

Comment 23 Jul 2014

I am dismissing them both, and continuing to live in my perfect world where Auburn sucks....but in reality, yes, Auburn is the primary competition it would seem.

Comment 23 Jul 2014

I like QB's who will win games wearing Scarlet & Gray, and I think TG would win a LOT of games.

And if he is peeking in here, you will win a LOT more games at OSU than at Tennessee or Auburn, so research done, commit to the Buckeyes and enjoy a stress-free senior year!

Comment 22 Jul 2014

Forget SEC bag men, I blame the SEC sack girls!

That needs to be on a t-shirt. 

Comment 22 Jul 2014

I know some of those safeties  and DB's at Wisconsin under Ash could flat out lay the wood. Hoping some of that was scheme combined with skill.

Smith is going to be a great one.

Comment 22 Jul 2014

Since I'm in the giving mood, here's another pro bono lesson for all the kids out there: Bad things follow bad people, and Taylor Lewan is a bad person.

A sincere "true dat" on both counts sir. 

And I love Phil Steele. He is definitely the best in the biz, however I think he may have not waited long enough after his morning peyote smoothie before that Maryland prediction. If we lose to Maryland, Birm will eat my shoe.

Comment 21 Jul 2014

He knows what he has to do. He will not be mentioned in the same class as Laurinaitis, Speilman, or even Shazier, as Buckeye LB greats are discussed, and as this story suggests it's too late for that. But he can go down swinging, and make an impact on a young team and maybe earn himself a look from the NFL. I can think of worse positions to be in...

Good luck Mr. Grant and GO BUCKS!
