I am not sure as to the answers but I do believe that band members are not student athletes because marching band is not considered a sport. Cheerleading is (side note: why is cheerleading a sport but not band?) so I think that they are student athletes. Not sure whether the NCAA governs marching band or not.
The band is so big and popular that it should be no surprise that this made ESPN. Unfortunately, band is not a sport.
Why is it that this always happens in the offseason (I don't want it to happen at all). This is not good news. As a high school marching band member, this hurts. I loved the shows under Waters. It does not change my view of the marching band, but this is a sad sight. Ohio State did the right thing given the circumstances.
The band is bigger that the director, and the excellence will continue (on the field), and hopefully, this will be a learning experience. After all, remember the last time that there was an interm band director at Ohio State? Waters got the full time job because of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngjcAvg6TYg
I think Fred Taylor tops Thad Matta because of one thing: his national championship. Is Matta a great coach? Yes, but until he wins a national championship, I cannot call him the greatest at Ohio State.
Those soccer jerseys are really nice. The should be real. I like the Ohio State ones (who doesn't) and Illinois, Maryland, and Sparty.
I agree. Bring back the game and pay players by giving them a free version of the game. I would go for this if I were a CFB player.
Shouldn't a ND fan be trolling their biggest rivals? And here I thought they were on or side for disliking TTUN.
Understandably, this is from one ND fan, but seriously, this guy needs a life.
I think the 10-10 tie should be in there. It had a Nat. Championship berth/Rose Bowl berth/ Big Ten championship on the line.
I do not think that these are bad. There are far from good, but the are not bad.
Do we know what channel it will be on? If not, this could be a BTN game.
I like it. MAKE IT HAPPEN!
I think that the shoe is closed right now. They are putting up the permanent lights.
THE BEST TROLL JOB I'VE EVER SEEN
Bill Lemonier(or whoever it is) is a crazy person. TSUN-Mich St. is better than THE Rivalry? Crazy stuff.
I went to The Ohio State University last week for a campus visit. It is a lot better seeing these places in person.
I did too, until DJ said this:
You know that iconic photo of an ecstatic Jim Tressel lording over the crystal football trophy after Ohio State's historic "upset" over the 2002 Miami team?
Try to imagine that photo, but with this hideous looking thing in place of the awesome crystal football:
I tried to imagine it, it looked hideous.
I think I see where you are coming from though.
When I first saw that picture, I thought that it was Coombs in the middle. Upon closer examination, as well as reading the title, twitter post, and article, it is Jimmy Johnson.
Where can we watch these games? Also, than you for posting and giving us an update. I do not follow the summer league. I also think that if Craft gets his offense working, he could very well be on a good team with reasonable playing time. He is as good or better than some of the backup PG's out there.
This happened to someone else in a different forum post (or maybe an article). DJ said it was fixed.
I am at #9, which is surprising considering I messed up the top of the bracket.
Don't worry about it Jason. We know (we can guess) how much hard work it takes for you to run this wonderful site. Yes, I was bored for 5 hours, but this site is a wonderful site. You guys do a great job with this site.
I think it was an own goal.
Agreed. I have always liked Jerry Kill. I am not sure what is not to like about him. He is a good coach.
Here is the short answer: YES!. The long one: if we play well, and we don't make mistakes, then yes, we can beat Germany. If we play like we did against Ghana, (except for the early goal) no, we wont beat Germany. They will capitalize on our mistakes.
Then again, what we do best is believe. If we believe that we can beat Germany (I do), they we wont be disappointed.
You said it yourself: it won't happen, but I would like to see him banned for life. Biting three different players three different times means that you have a problem. I don't care how good you are, but you don't go around biting players. Realisticly, I see the rest of the world cup, but then again, it's FIFA. I would not be surprised if FIFA overlooks this or gives him a one game ban. Chiellini said it himself: FIFA want their stars to play in the biggest tournament. Suarez will play if they get past the quarterfinals.
