Mark Dantonio is a bitch..
Probably because of Trayvon. Had a great career for the Badgers.
He suffered a stress fracture in his foot in the summer before his junior year at the Pan Am games. Still, in his final (Junior) year at OSU he put up his best numbers and was NPOTY. Where the injury thing got to him was in the NBA. He was averaging like 25 a game for the Mavericks, and he went down with a nasty ankle injury - and after THAT was never the same. Soon after were all of the trades and hopping around the league that he did. Managed to play in the NBA for 14 years, and have his jersey retired in the Schott though...not bad at all.
I wish the 90's could come back and never leave...
JJ was my first Buckeye hero. First jersey I owned. I was crushed after that scUM loss in the elite 8. Still, so many great memories and games.
Roosters beats the absolute holy hell out of a hack job like Chipotle every day of the week and twice on Sunday. I continue to have only a whopping two #takes that I actually agree with DJ on. OSU athletics are good, and cats are kings. On everything else, he's so off the mark it's almost antagonistic. But hey, it takes all types. Oh, and free content.
1890 was the first year for Ohio State football. Seriously. Connection?
No idea how Beilein recruits so well. He kind of defeats the whole "second tier program" thing that has been an excuse when Thad has missed on big time Ohio talent. Michigan is not Duke or Kentucky either, but somehow Beilein has no trouble getting 5 star kids to commit up there.
And he will not only get a slap on the wrist, but will be doing financially better than 99% of hardworking folks that have never even thought to hit a woman in their life. There are literally no consequences in life for the American pro athlete short of Hernandez killing someone. Hit a woman in front of her kids and threaten someone else? No problem: get PAID. You may turn on a TV somewhere or sell a ticket or jersey, so who gives a shit if you are a horrible human being? If you can get to the QB consistently, consider your debt to society paid, sir.
BOATS AND HOES.
I love cats. I love Ohio State. Other than those two cold hard facts, I am finding that I pretty much disagree with almost every damn one of DJ's #takes he has ever had. I am in no means trying to find fault in another's opinion, or coming close to complaining about a free site, but we just are pretty far away from aesthetic brotherhood. It was pretty funny to see him eat his hat about Manziel, and I wish there was a way to make this happen for most of his rotten #takes.
Due to their reputation for having a pleasant temperament, sulcata tortoises are sometimes kept as pets, despite presenting significant challenges. They require large enclosures, temperatures above 60F (16 °C), and bedding composed of grasses or grass-based hay. Due to their high dietary fiber needs, grasses form a minimum of 75% of their food intake. To remain healthy, they require sufficient calcium for bone and shell development, low protein, and minimal fruit or sugary foods. Whereas wild tortoises obtain enough calcium from the soil, pets generally require calcium supplements. Young sulcatas grow quickly and can double in size each year during the first three years.
Per CITES, a zero annual export quota has been established for C. sulcata for specimens removed from the wild and traded for primarily commercial purposes. Due to excessive captive breeding and removal from the wild, many rescue centers are full and unable to accept more. American Tortoise Rescue discourages the breeding and selling of the species.
Listed as threatened/vulnerable. Who the hell is selling them?
Won the B1G tourney, too. Over...Wisconsin. :-)
I DO question the disappearance of KBD and Williams. If anything, they seem to give more effort than some of the seniors. I hope that they realize that next year they will have the keys to the castle, and will put in the work.
Who's your pick, homie?
Diebler, Lighty, Lauderdale, and (should he have not been National Player of the Year, and then left) Turner sure were an underachieving bunch of undeveloped players.
It was 4 years ago in March that Matta handed Ryan the worst ass whipping of his career. A bunch of 4 year players that Matta developed named Diebler, Lighty, and Buford (along with a couple super young bloods) blew Wisky off the same floor. The football team was 6-7 that year, and was the embarrassment du jour. Sports tend to be cyclical and not follow a straight line. Matta has 5 B1G titles, 4 tourney titles, 2 final fours, several NBA formers, but you all know that. This sucks but everybody takes lumps. Those that think we should replace Matta with someone who will presumably win every game, every year, are out of their gourd, and in the wrong line of work if they are right.
That said, the seniors were good Buckeyes, but I will be more than happy to turn the page and give full control of this team over to the sophs-to-be and incoming freshmen. Time to rise again.
PLAY THIS MAN. If we are going to be getting better going forward into next year and beyond, he will be a key cog. Especially "if" Russell skips the draft, we will only get better.
I guess I'm going to have to be the one who drafts the one for JT Barrett, FOURTH Of His Name, Winner of 11, Slayer of Sparta, Holder of Innumerable Records, Captain of the Scoota, Vanquisher of Lions. That's the only politics I'll play. :-)
This is weird to me too. Golden has been there a while now, and he has put out a mediocre product on the field, and aside from a few in-state gets, has lukewarm recruiting. All of a sudden all the florida kids can't get enough? Fishy...
Was nice to know you, DJ. Sorry about the death wish. You will have probably lived longer than most Marionaires, from what you've let on. Will it be a seppuku-like falling on the sword, or something zany?
JT Barrett is the best quarterback on this team, and if healthy (caveat), should and will start in 2015.
That was the game where Terry Glenn separated his shoulder on a bomb coming down on the hard Metrodome turf, wasn't it? I think that limited him for the rest of the season. And I am old.
If I could upvote more than once, I would. I know he is paying lip service to his new home, but I respectfully disagree.
At least it's not an Alabama nutsack.
The only untruth to this article is that the Wisconsin game was one of the 3 most difficult games of the year. Wisconsin was a good bit under Michigan State this year. The game, which JT Barrett owned, AT MSU this year was much more difficult than the Wisconsin B1G Championship game. It seems for a while at least, the B1G East will have more challenging regular season games than whomever represents the West in the championship. We would have been favored in the title game had Barrett not been injured the week before. No one knew at the time that Cardale was capable of this level of play, except maybe the coaches. The best win of the season that was not in the playoffs belonged to JT Barrett.
