Popularity/ infatuation generally subside over time. I'm sure Buckeye fans were pretty damn infatuated with Jerry Lucas back in the day but aren't as much now because many of us (myself included) never saw him play. Even among recent players, everyone was pretty infatuated with Evan Turner while he was here. I guarantee you that. More time has passed since he played for the Buckeyes and so isn't in the Buckeye conscious at the moment. You don't do things like this without being huge in fans' eyes.
That same service has Devin Smith going undrafted.
Here is 14 minutes to get you started.
I will admit that I watched the Fish Bowl on my second TV while watching the Super Bowl last year (after having watched the Puppy Bowl a couple of times). It was solid entertainment.
The Long Horn Network is now almost as bad as the Watching Paint Dry Network.
We could just make every Friday Skull Session into its own BucksFan Changing Icon thread.
Make sure those balls are clean, folks.
Also the rosy red cheeks. #swoon
Legitimate question here for Jason:
A few Fridays ago I went looking for our old forum thread pal "BucksFan Changed his Icon". It is still there. As we all know, it had several gifs of the jiggly variety. Would jail time result from "bumping" a thread like that? Or is the jail time only for new bouncing gifs posted?
He was one of the hardest workers to ever put on a Buckeye uniform. People love that "blue-collar" aspect to any players' game. Compare him with LaQuinton Ross. Ross was much more talented but it is clear that he didn't put nearly the amount of effort and leadership that Craft did. Hence why people love him. He was here for four years which people tend to like about their team's players. Conley is a much better point guard than Craft, but since he was only here one year, he is not as beloved by the fan base as Craft is.
Also, he was a integral part of the Final Four and Elite Eight teams.
He was much more than a great on-ball defender. He is a great defender. Period. He played passing lanes amazingly well when his man didn't have the ball. I would take him on this team in a heartbeat.
A cat fight is a-brewin.
They are both juniors and are eligible to be drafted. They are three years removed from high school.
He was a 2nd teamer on SI's All-America team. Neither of them are taken into account for naming a consensus or unanimous All-American.
Pick your spot Joey.
B1G teams are more popular and so during the BCS era, the bowls would often select two B1G teams to the BCS bowls over a slightly higher ranked ACC, Pac12, or BigXII school because of fans traveling. Also, January 1 bowl tie-ins skew heavily to B1G vs. SEC matchups. And post January 1 bowls are non-P5 matchups (other than the Cotton Bowl)
He is a Walter Camp and AP All-American so far. I am not sure if the others have announced yet; I doubt they have.
It would be like using just the... um... Southern Tip.
I loved doing that too. Such a D-bag, Mark May is.
Good point. I didn't know about that. Often coaches "jump ship" as soon as possible to get started on things/ get to know current players. But also, they aren't coaching for a national title very often on their current teams.
