Stephen Collier. Lots and lots of snaps
My first concert was when I was 5 years old...and it was the Spice Girls with my dad and sister.
I assume you're counting Jabrill Peppers as a safety?
I thought this was the most sarcastic thread ever for about 2 minutes before I saw 2014....
I know we only won by 6, but yesterday was one of the best wins of the season in my opinion.
Russell was his usual self. Scott played one of his best games of his career, imo. Thompson actually knew his role for once. Loving looked confident finally. Other than the one play where Amir just didn't give any effort and got blown by for a layup, he actually played a solid game as well.
I'm not a big fan of peeps...but Chocolate Marshmellow Milk sounds absolutely delicious
I'm that LeBron fan that everyone loves...Who rooted for the Cavs when he was in Cleveland, then for the Heat when he went to Miami, and now back for the Cavs again.
I never really had an NBA team before LBJ entered the league and actually got interested when he showed up.
Joe Germaine is the most underrated player in buckeye history in my opinion. Boston and Miller were great, but their numbers were definitely helped by Germaine's accuracy
Can't believe I didn't even think of them...
Especially if you count Dayne
Quite some great RB's to come through here lately. Got me thinking, who should be considered RB University? (Last 15 years or so)
Probably would go..
4. Ohio State
Any others that should be in there?
It's hard to consider anything less than a playoff birth a "success" in my eyes
I have had 3 things happen while playing basketball with OSU athletes.
1. I swatted Terrelle Pryor during a pickup basketball game...
2. I got dunked on by BJ Mullins in a high school summer league game...
3. I almost had the entire crowd kill me for playing too hard against Jared Sullinger. Okay not kill....but I was boxing out (Attempting to at least, I'm 6'1) Sullinger during a summer league game and he tried to jump up to get the rebound...naturally I just kept moving backwards with the boxout and he flipped over top of me and landed on the ground. I heard people yelling "Watch out Jared he's trying to hurt cha!" and "That was a dirty F'ing play man!"
All 3 guys were pretty cool in the limited interactions I had with them.
Isn't Dez Bryant the one who got asked if his mom was a prostitute during the NFL draft interviews?
Have any NAIA schools talked to him?
I had an NAIA school talk to me as a senior for basketball. I'm not sure how it works for football, but for basketball the school I was talking to was allotted 6 full scholarships worth of money to disperse among their team. They could give 6 full scholarships and the rest of the players nothing or they could give 2 players full scholarships and disperse the other 4 throughout the team...etc.
I wasn't some prized recruit or anything so they were only going to give me like 1/5 of a scholarship so naturally I just chose to give it up since the school's tuition was twice as much as OSU's.
Elementary PE teacher and I also coach 8th grade boys basketball.
1. Russell (6'5)
2. Thompson (6'7)
3. Loving (6'7)
4. Tate (6'4)
5. KBD (6'7)
Give Lee one more chance because he showed promise the game before getting sick/injured. If he doesn't produce I would at least try this. Our big guys can't contest shots anyway. Say screw it to the defensive inside presence and focus on scoring the ball. With the length on the floor (Tate being shortest at 6'4) we should still be able to rebound decently.
I wouldn't say Smith too much. Really his role just increased as the talent around him left. His shooting percentages were down his senior year. Had Sibert stayed Smith might not have even been a starter.
Tough to say how much Lewis improved or didn't improve with him being a transfer and being overshadowed by his HS teammates during recruitment.
I'm not trying to say guys didn't improve at all, just more so attempting to say that expectations for improvement are often too high. If only a few guys in the last 8 years have drastically improved, then it comes down to us hoping a guy is a part of that 5% that do. We all should have known what Amir Williams was going to be after his Sophomore year.
Other than Evan Turner and Laquinton Ross, who really improved a ton from buckeye basketball teams the past 8 years?
I think part of the problem is that a lot of people think these players are drastically going to change their game over 4 years (Or less) when really the expected improvements should be much smaller. Things like defensive awareness and decision making often improve but besides that, what really drastically improves?
Probably have to win 3 out of their last 4. If they only win 2 out of 4 (Assuming losses are to Purdue and Wisconsin), then will probably have to win at least 2 games in the Big Ten Tourney to get in.
Anyone else still waiting on the NFL to make players run a 40 yard dash in pads? Can't believe more teams aren't asking for it. You play the game in pads, yet do all of these drills without pads on...
