Let Hangmen Strip
Mangles Then Trip -- MY GOD! NOAH SPENCE! RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES THE WHOLE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's like you can see through my laptop webcam... but I'm not there! Am I vampire? Vampires hate lights!... I'm gonna need more yarn...
Not clear at all what it's related to yet. ESPN article cryptically mentions his 2-year-old son who died last year, and that Peterson only found out a couple months before that he was the father. That bizarely insinuates there is some connection between that and the charges, but maybe it's just bad journalism (which should NEVER be ruled out). I have no idea if it has anything to do with that son or not.
Yeah, but have you guys ever watched Ohio State play while wearing street clothes... WHILE MOLLY TRIPPIN???!!!
Quick, somebody check the depth chart!
I guess all clickbait leads to a stronger marketing profile for 11w, so no beef here.
Thank God for Jamal Marcus. Our DLine is deeper than that hole Goodell is digging, baby!
True, but they had already played in big time college football environments, which is pretty different from OSU-Navy in a pro stadium.
Spence can't even run a go route. He's got some quickness to the outside but he's only got a swim move and a spin move.
It's Evan Spencer, as opposed to Noah Spence, just giving you a hard time.
Also, like Urbz, I'm not giving up on Corey Smith. Tough for your first game in front of 107k to be against the best DBs in the country. I think he was surprised whenever they didn't bat a pass.
If I recall correctly, AJ Green sold a jersey... to an agent. Which is, in my opinion, a much stronger violation of the amateur-athlete agreement than trading memorabilia for tattoos.
It can't rain all the time. RIGHT?!
Too disheartened even to hate on Coach Cal right now, but any year they don't win the national championship is a good year. Sadly, the good years may not last much longer.
VT fans made me wish the OSU fans were louder. Sure, the VT fans had more to cheer for, but those were the loudest away fans I can remember in the Shoe. I was impressed.
Braxton is hurt because Vic Beasley, a future NFL player beat Jack Mewhort, a current NFL player and got to the quarterback, then a surgeon botched a surgery.
Ohio State lost for the first time in its history while scoring 35 points in the Orange Bowl. If your offense scores 35 points, you should win the damn game, as Ohio State had done for 125 years.
I disagree that Ohio State's offense has suddenly been figured out. If JT could check down to a hot receiver, or Evan Spencer makes a third down catch against MSU, or Heuerman doesn't miss a block on 4th and 1, or Pitt Brown doesn't drop a punt against Clemson, or Doran Grant doesn't get a crucial pass interference on third and long against VT, or any number of tiny other things that Tom Herman doesn't have control over don't happen, then maybe we aren't having this discussion.
A young QB and young Oline had a terrible game, and suddenly last year's losses weren't the defenses fault. So... we shouldn't fire Fickell now, we should fire Herman? Or what about Urban? He hired them. If this board existed in 2004, we could all go back and read about how Tresselball didn't work anymore, and without a genius like Krenzel the offense would never score points again, and how a program like Northwestern really gets it because they "exposed" flawed coaching.
Yes, and that train wreck you mention is a young team not living up to the standard set by this same coach last year when it scored more points that any other Ohio State team ever.
I would like to think you are right, but I would be shocked if he doesn't play for someone week 1 of next season. Ray Lewis (maybe kinda sorta, white suit covered in the victim's blood, etc...) was involved in killing people.
There is no doubt that what Rice did is deplorable, and like I've said, I wouldn't be opposed to a lifetime ban, and will add that he should be in jail.
The essence of the article, though, is what I was talking about. There are countless athletes who have done terrible things in their past, and calling for a university to sever ties with an athlete should bring up other institutions and their relationships to said countless athletes who've done terrible things.
Should Jason Kidd not be allowed into the hall of fame for beating his wife while in Phoenix? I'm not saying he should or should not, just asking if this line of thinking should run its full course.
What about Clarett? I agree with a firm stance against domestic violence, but what about armed robbery? Also, what do you think his intentions were driving wearing body armor with a loaded AK-47 variant, and two swords near the house of a witness set to testify against him?
What do Ray Rice and Oden have to do to become redeemed heroes like Clarett?
For the record, I do believe Clarett is a better person now, and think a lifetime ban for Rice and Oden is justifiable, but I also want to point out that there is a lot of gray here being made into a black and white issue.
