NOT TAKING IT BACK! Wasting an immense amount of talent. No question that he could be in the "Great" category.
Best explanation I have ever heard. "Egos"! Its not what you can do, its what you can convince people you can do.
Beating up on TP for being unemployed is not nearly as disrespectful as TP calling out Kirk for losses vs UM.
He did, he was wrong, keep reading don the thread to my responses.
He wasn't, the feud was actually between Kirk and JT because of his favoritism and coddling of TP. However, just like any
good reporter would do, they asked the guy they thought that they could get a headline out of. and......TP gave it to them, like a dumbass.
We have to win out. Honestly, you would want to be playing your best ball at the end of the season to even think about a national title.I dont think that it is possible for any team to lose in the last 3 weeks of the season and win the title. Lets just win them all so we don't have to have this discussion because it is making me sick to my stomach.
If you think the spat was because of a show of frustration by a QB to his WR, then you're crazy. Every QB ever to play College Football has done that to a WR at some point. The real problem is what I already stated. Yes, I am aware that was the question posed to TP about Herbie that caused the media trash but the real reason there was already friction is because of what I already said and don't think TP wasn't aware of it.
It only took 2 mins to get a DV from my post but still no name. It must be anonymous night at Defend the Diva.com
Notice that I did not DV 1 person in this entire post because I respect other individual's opinions even the people who cant accurately and articulately defend them.

He has made some cash but expansion draft picks don't make what actual draft picks make. He received a 5-600 thousand signing bonus but after taxes and the 100,000 he had to give the NCAA, maybe he isn't doing as well as you thought. He hasn't made it onto a team past that rookie contract. NFL first round picks who have played for twice as long as TP are broke or have filed for bankruptcy. I would be willing to bet you that Kirk is more financially sound right now than TP.
Not any more unnecessary than the shot at Kirk for the UM losses like there weren't 21 other people on the field.
It appears that I struck a nerve, let me straighten it out for you.
Kirk's problem with TP actually stemmed from Kirk disagreeing with the coddling TP was receiving from JT, which was very accurate.
Kirk was an Ohio Boy born and raised to be a Buckeye from his Father who was an OSU Team Co-Captain, played out his ENTIRE career at OSU, actually graduated, has continued to support any and everything OSU, contributes to and supports many OSU charities, has not let his personal actions put OSU in a negative light, and has a very prominent professional career even though it is ESPN. However, if he criticizes the program in any way, he's the biggest piece of trash on the planet even though it is his job.
Terrelle Pryor was a super athlete from Pennsylvania, drug out his recruitment until after signing day, won a lot of games while at OSU, got in trouble (not alone but with other teammates also, just like Kirk's losses to UM), refused to take his medicine by coming back and taking his suspension like his coconspirators, didn't graduate, and contributed to getting a great man (great man, not great coach) fired. However, for some reason in many OSU fans' eyes, he is awesome.
Hmm..... Whose side should I be on? Anytime I see anything that compares these 2 individuals, it's not even close to whose side I am going to be on. Anyone who supports the other side is just making excuses or has priority issues.
If JT could've actually recruited the QB position, TP would've been ready for the NFL as a WR because his arm-punt would've never been a part of the OSU QB legacy. Brax was the best QB JT recruited and he's not even going to be a QB at the next level.
Keep the DV's coming, ill take everything you got. Just put your name on it so I know your true character and your priorities.
I'm not sure that I am quite ready to put him in their category but I am very impressed with his added confidence and physicality. The best part is that he's going to be around to get better.
Love Dantonio and think he is doing one hell of a job at MSU. I cant imagine him not retiring as their all-time leader in wins and win%. . Defensive Coordinator of OSU '02 Championship team, finds diamonds-in-the-rough recruiting, and probably gets as much or more out of his talent than anyone in College Football. Have to respect that guy even if you have found a reason not to like him.
His team may not have beat UM but he has a job right now, how bout you, TP?
Brings up a great story. My Son's football coach gave us 50 yard line tickets to the Mizzou vs UGA game. The score was 9-6 and mostly because of the lack of execution from the UGA QB position. It was pretty obvious that all of the people within 5 rows of us were season ticket holders and knew each other. About half way through the 4th quarter some asshole about 5 rows above us starting berating the UGA QB like he had stolen his 1st born child. All of a sudden, the guy directly in front of us who hadn't shown an ounce of excitement all day, turns around and screams " Thank you StubHub, thank you". I had tears in my eyes I was laughing so hard.
I understand why some people would root for our in-conference foes especially if they spend time outside of B1G Country listening to opposing fans talk smack about the B1G. However, as I sit in the middle of SEC Country, I refuse to root for Penn State and most especially UM under any circumstances. I do have other teams that I will root for on occasion because I am a huge College Football fan but those 2 are strictly forbidden. I let these SEC fans have it on a daily basis about being bandwagon fans and rooting for their supposed rival. If you root for them, you don't dislike them enough for them to be a rival. Who gives a shit about a tree on a College campus in Auburn? That's nothing compared to getting Ziploc bags of piss thrown at you from a balcony in Unhappy Valley. Watching UM beat OSU with a roster 2/3 full of Ohio HS kids while attempting to convince the world that there is something "Great" about the state of Michigan. That's hate!
Love his stride length but would like to see him be a little more loose in the hips. Has a lot of potential.
The most important part is we get to see what shes really made of by coming back from a loss. A lot of great fighters who were undefeated completely fold after that 1st loss. We will see if she has what it takes. All of those women with square jaws and big heads in that sport make it very obvious. I don't want to hear crap about a drug test from anyone.
Fick isn't going anywhere but I am very afraid that we are going to lose Ash very soon. Need Warriner to stick to O-Line or OC but not both. Please, someone hire Beck away from us. That is all.
Ill take the Bucks but Im not taking the bet. Unimpressed with our Offensive efficiency all season and hoping to keep their run-game and play action under control.
People who want to be great, demand excellence. There's no reason to act like we didn't expect the O Line to be more dominant this year after losing only 1 starter. I have no idea why people jump on former Buckeyes for publicly giving their opinion and most especially when their opinion is pretty spot-on. I think Herbie is pretty accurate most of the time. Being a Buckeye and being a blind Buckeye are 2 different things. Hope the entire O Line got the tweet and are using it for motivation.
I was wrong, go Boomer.
Kiffin has zero chances of helping SC or any school in Florida. Kiffin stays under Nick until he can get a top flight job as a replacement for a team that already has talent. These jobs do not have enough talent to cover his lack of coaching ability.
I would love it. No way that idiot gets another shot this early after failing so miserably at Tennecheat and USC. Ive been wrong before and will be again. Hoping im wrong right now because Id love for his dumb ass to get the job.
