We have many Brothers who have and are serving and, from hearing their stories first-hand, we've really come to appreciate everything that the USO does. Such a wonderful organization. Thank you all for your service!!
I love M(*)chigan and all, but there are a ton of assholes in our fan base. I really doubt its Ohio State or Michigan State fans posing as Michigan fans that are tweeting at Harris. We have enough idiots in our own fan base to do this to ourselves.
One of my favorites.
Note: I'm not saying we don't have our own fair share, still funny.
Happy Birthday to one of the great Buckeyes and fellow Brother of Phi Gamma Delta! Press On, my friend!
That's true, but I've heard all sorts of excuses about youth or whatnot as to why we beat Oregon back then. As for beating Arkansas, it's easy: we cheated by selling paraphernalia for some tattoos that, obviously, provided us such a large on-field advantage so as to make it even remotely possible that a B1G team could even think of defeating a top SEC team..
Sadly, your point does remind me that there is always excuses. Oh well, I guess we just have to win 100 in a row!
Nope. It will be the excuse that Oregon just "didn't play Oregon football," so it doesn't matter, and the NCG would be "sloppy" just because both the teams are truly "elite," especially compared to the Big Ten. There will never be respect for the Buckeyes until we destroy 'Bama/an undefeated FSU/Oregon/etc.
I'm not 100% confident in the Cal game, but it does seem that we get luckier as the days go on. It's a new coach, frosh QB, new offense, a few games into the year (allowing us to scout the earlier games, I.e. NW), and it looks like we will be having our entire veteran secondary back for support. We won't be able to come out sleepwalking, but if we show, then I don't think it'll be too much of an issue.
Green might be more appropriate since they're never in the end zone
Yeah, I noticed that when I reread it. Oh well, like you said, the more paying it forward the better whether mandatory or voluntary!
This should seriously be sent to Meyer; almost made me cry!
More awesome material, love it!
Hopefully, and I expect, the defensive stats to get a large boost this year as we start filling some of those holes. After all, championships are won by defense!
First, props about the NW reminder.
Second, my first assumption was that Urban was simply referring to additional terms (i.e. gassers, community service, etc.) that, if not completed by the time he has served the 3-game suspension, would prolong the said suspension. At this point, IMO, it's clear-cut enough with the video and I'm sure they've talked to him that there's nothing left that would cause him to change his mind and add games.
EDIT: Earle beat me to it!
Yeah I definitely just held CTRL and up with the mouse wheel to zoom in (PC magic, ermahgerd!)
But you're right, it is rather evident that she made contact where as the frame with him leaning towards her being completely illegible.
My thoughts would be any or all of the following:
1) He still could be seen as disrespecting a woman, depending on what UFM knows/has seen.
2) He still made a bad decision that came close to being disastrous for him and hurt the team.
3) This is the prime time to send a message by punishing him without having to be excessive about it.
Photoshop Friday, anyone?
I kid, I kid..
I think it's safe to say that there will be some sort of punishment. Will it go to the extent of suspension or something? I doubt it (unless there is more information we don't know yet). However, I would not be surprised at all if Meyer incurs some sort of intense physical punishment (i.e. gassers) above and beyond what is already planned. IMO, something needs to be done as punishment, but nothing season altering. We'll see, hopefully sooner rather than later and without the endless supply of twists.
It's a shame his name is quick to be connected to personal fouls and poor tackling form. Hopefully his role as a true leader can propel him into a great, memorable, and relatively clean season!
I would, personally, prefer that, IF we make it to the B1G CG, we play Nebraska. Rematches won't look good on a national scale and Nebraska would give us a new opponent with a possibly strong national reputation. Besides that, I'd agree, definitely on the NW bandwagon as of now.
Agreed. Not jut because I don't want to see the back to back The Games, but because Nebraska is a team that we won't play during the regular season that could help us in our chase for post season, especially if they've lived up to expectations and made it to the championship game.
You're right, that was very ignorant of me. I got caught up in just wanting it to be done with and stop dragging on I didn't even think of that. If he did something as unwarranted as slapping her "pretty good," then I do hope that he is punished; as you said, it is beyond just football.
That's what I'm wondering. But if the quotes above are what you go off of, him slapping her pretty good would definitely count, IMO.
At least it clears up the "did he or didn't he?" Hopefully the victim just stays gone/quiet and they drop it
I agree. Sounded like a "worst case scenario" type thing.
EDIT: Never mind, he never actually said if. Still don't think it is necessarily a given.
I just wonder how far UFM takes the "disrespect women" thing. If it turns out he did push her face away after she swung at him or whatever, does he still get booted? I just want some concrete answers, the uncertainty is the worst part of this whole thing.
What I would give to be able to do that at work everyday for the past week!
