The most noteworthy part of this article is that it looks like Lyle is driving past a one-armed PSU defender.
As someone who has had labrum surgeries on both shoulders, I can say I'm glad I don't have to repeat the rehab/recovery process that he's about to go through. It's a slow, difficult process but fortunately he's got plenty of time to get healthy.
Not a huge fan of these of these uni's but I could get more behind them if they didn't replace such a solid set of uni's the Crew wore last year. Those were top notch.
Bingo. Couldn't agree more.
True, because basketball is not a contact sport in the same way that football is. My point is that everything moves so fast and the game is so inherently physical that I believe there needs to be some leeway. Also, I believe the intent of the player that committed the targeting foul needs to at least be a consideration. Two targeting fouls from the same player in a game should result in an ejection. One targeting foul that is deemed egregious and/or intentional should also result in an ejection. To kick a player out after one unintentional, non-egregious targeting call seems excessive to me.
I'm all for player safety and I think the current targeting rules help to protect players, however ejecting a player after one targeting foul is too harsh in my opinion. Similar to technical fouls in basketball, I believe if a player commits two targeting fouls he should be ejected. If the player is unable/unwilling to adjust after the first targeting foul then he should face the consequence of an ejection.
Last summer when I traveled through Europe I got several "Go Bucks!" in the Rome airport (wearing my UNDISPUTED shirt, of course) and also ran into a group of Ohio State fans hiking through the Swiss Alps. When they walked away I heard one of them say "Holy crap we're everywhere!"
I think the hit in the ASU game was clearly worthy of an ejection and, if I'm being completely objective, Bosa's ejection was probably justified based on how the rule's written but it certainly could have gone either way. The ASU hit should result in an ejection every time.
Doesn't really matter but I believe the guy that made the hit was Marcus Ball from Westerville South.
I went to high school with Zach Mason and I can say he truly exemplifies everything that a student-athlete should be. While it's obviously exciting that he won the award, it's not the least bit surprising. He's an awesome representative for Ohio State athletics.
The generation gap never ceases to exist.
My favorite is the 2005 game in Ann Arbor. Great finish that also helped propel Troy Smith's Heisman campaign the next season.
In fairness to Fleck, he did that same thing after every quarter when WMU played at Miami (OH) last year when I was at that game and I think we all know there weren't any cameras to play to for that one.
Look at the arms on that Chimpanzee!

Interesting comments regarding FSU. Not that I'm really surprised by what was said, it just struck me how apparent all of those features (notably the ease of the academics) were to the recruit without even enrolling in classes there.
Can we get Burrow college-ready by Jan. 1st?
Ahh wide right!
I'm partial to the Cincinnati poster personally.
