Yup. Cleanup on isle 5!
This was my reaction when I witnessed the 85 yard run through the heart of Alabama live...
and this is how I get every time I watch it again...
Sorry... call me an idealist, but I just think awards (like Conference Winner, National Titles - and COY) should be given to those who have earned it. No one has stated "would Joey Bosa rather have a National Title or be an All American" because that would be a false dichotomy - because he EARNED both. The fact that so many people other than Ohio State fans are making statements like Gruden's makes my point. There is no reason why there needs to be a choice between National Champions or COY - because Urban Meyer earned both.
They should have asked him if he thought Meyer deserved to be COY. You would have got a look that we down here in FL love him for...
As a transplant down here in FLA, I have become more than lukewarm Tampa Bay and Dolphins fan (mainly because years ago I saw the futility of trying to remain a Frowns or Bungles fan). As such, my support for the Bucs was solidified when they won the Super bowl just weeks after the Buckeyes beat the U... and I have loved Gruden ever since. And I think by general acknowledgement of his peers he is one of the better judges of QB talent, so this pronouncement is coming from a position of accreditation. I just wish the B1G (and NCAA, ESPN, AP, et al) COTY awards committee was made of of people with similar accreditation and not a bunch of Mark May wanabes.
For the past 40 years we have been like a very good Chemistry teacher. Last year we evolved into... well, Wisky knows. We didn't tell Wisky (or Bama, or the Ducks) who we are now... but now they know our name - and they FEAR US.
And the congregation said... AMEN!
While John Bacon unironically compared Harbaugh's hiring to V-J day, I on the otherhand - and totally ironically - compared Harbaugh's hiring to VaJayJay day.
I named my dog Devin Smith... guess which one he is!
Just like him too - snatchin' the treats from right under the noses of the big dogs!
I tried to get film of Devin running the 40 once... by the time I got the camera turned on this was all I got!
I guarantee the man who walked out of that workout last will see significant playing time this fall... because they had the willpower, perseverance and attitude needed to make them the last man to walk out of that workout.
I've used this before and I'm sure I'll have plenty of opportunities to use it again before the end of the year... it's just too true not to use:
My older sister is a huge Brown's fan (that's her fandom that is huge not her ass...well her ass is kinda... oh, you get the idea) and at first, wanting payback for all the torture I endured as a little brother, the schadenfreude of the Brown's perpetual ineptitude was great theater for me. Now though, it has been going on so long that I am really starting to pity her. And since we are now both much older I'm starting to worry that she'll either die of old age before they get to let alone win a Super bowl, or she'll die of heart failure if they ever actually do get there.
And here's his little brother...
There are 2 side to every story...
