Oh come on, DJ, why you gotta go there? Not ready to consider Urbz replacement just yet. Let's pretend 300 more years is realistic, please!
The loss of bogut for them was also huge.
"The new Birm"... It's like the lucky guy who eventually (hopefully many years from now) gets tapped to replace Urban.... Talk about walking into some BIG shoes!
300 ish comments buried and down the list... I still feel obligated to say thank you. Just thank you, Birm, for everything. It's been a true pleasure. Good luck. Buckeye fab for 40 some years. Never knew as much about them as I do today, thanks to 11W and your hard work.
Hate to have been that kid caught looking around...
I gotta say... if either of my sons were in this position, I would have a very difficult time not recommending a Stanford-type school. Don't get me wrong, I'm as big a buckeye fan as anyone else on this site, and a loyal Ohioan, but man... Stanford on the top of the resume and with that network of grads behind you... Or northwestern even (NOT ttun, for obvious reasons!)... You're starting off life in a pretty great place. This is no knock on any Midwestern state school, of which I am a grad, but that type of elite and prestigious education would be really tough to turn down...
GM and coach of the Cavs.... ISWYDT, DJ....
Picky note, but I thought the reason Bri'onte Dunn missed the spring game was because he had a class he was attending for graduation that was only offered at that time? Am I mixing stories? I seem to recall a thread with banter about how he could miss the game due to a scheduling conflict.
I love tyvis and jalen, but leaving early to sneak into the late rounds? It's a hard and cold real world out here. Those college years are precious. Easy for me to say, but there must be some thought from those two that another year would have been a good thing. And, true, injuries do happen:
Welcome to the machine.
beaten by 14 secs!
Man. Those are some icy white shoes, cardale.
Thomas has got some serious paws.
Just don't break any ankles!
What a hero. Thanks for the story. I had the pleasure of meeting him and getting an autograph as a kid. Our society has changed so much since his time. Passing no judgement on today's athletes, I just can't imagine walking away from "everything" to enlist. Quite impressive.
Not so much as a peep about Hardman?
Seriously though, thanks for another impeccable season of what you do best, Birm! We are grateful.
Not too bold prediction: Braxton will be crazy good in the combine. Stock surging!
That's some solid DB tradition. You hear, Hamlin, Fuller, et al?
Brax will be absolutely lights out at the combine. No doubt.
"And a better man".... Ok, that x'd FSU...
Honestly, I'm a bit surprised. But, go get em, DLee. Thanks for some tremendous memories!
Or Hilliard? Or Conner?
I had a feeling that soon after that show against ND, we'd get a boom...
Man, we'll miss you Big Bear. It's been a pleasure to watch you terrorize opposing QBs. The future is bright.
Key question- why the suspended license? And big tip, if you have no license, don't drive.
