Not counting my chickens before they hatch, but I'm the best man in a wedding the day of the B1G Championship....the groom is a fan of TTUN so I guess I understand why he has no concern his wedding falls on this day!
I didn't see but I heard it was visible here in San Diego.
Oh what will Art say now, haha?
My two cents.....One thing to remember is that while Cardale did lead the team to the three wins at the end of the season, J.T. had a record breaking regular season. His compiled a lot of yards and TDs, that's not to say Cardale couldn't have done the same thing with all of the playmakers, BUT at the very least it proves that J.T. is capable.
Secondly, I think that J.T. is a much more natural leader than Cardale. Coach Meyer and various team members have voiced J.T.'s leadership abilities and that shows since he was voted as a team captain. One of the intangibles that is really important for QBs to have.
Third, (and this is a bit more subjective (because I haven't spent much time researching it) it seems like J.T. tends to be a better decision maker and distributes the ball better as well. I always seem to feel more comfortable when J.T. is making a read option or reading pass defenses rather than Cardale. But again this is a more subjective point from my perspective.
Lastly, I feel like the offense and Cardale do much better with a deep threat WR in the game, i.e. Devin Smith. Without that threat there's a lot more reliance on the run game and short passes where the QB must read the defense. And going back to my last point, I feel J.T. performs better than Cardale in that situation.
Sorry for the long post, but tried to put some thought into it like you asked. At the end of the day I'm not a coach and I hope the team focuses on the fundamentals regardless of the QB to produce wins.
Nothing against Cardale, just honestly thought that Barrett deserved a shot after the last two games. But in Urban I trust!
I went to school with Elliot, he and his family are some of the nicest, most humble people you would ever meet. It speaks volumes about him and Coach Tressel. Both genuine people that can appreciate people for people and put the game aside under circumstances like this.
It's an amazing story of strength and triumph under some of the most difficult circumstances. I continue to wish the best for the Mealer family.
As if I wasn't anxious enough for the season to start....only 2 more weeks!!!
I've been told that's the place to be on Saturdays!
If that means virtually year round temperatures in the 70s then I'm okay with that, ha!
Thanks for all of the feedback so far guys....up votes for everyone, I appreciate it! Sounds like the city has a lot to offer. I expected the taxes to be high and cost of living is about the complete opposite from Toledo. While I might not get use to the cost very quickly, at my new job I'll be making more even after accounting for the higher cost of living so if was hard to pass up.
We'll see how it goes, at the very least I will enjoy no snow and lows in the 40s not negative 40s during the winter!
WOW.....no other words, just WOW!
It's already Friday and now this, not much work happening the rest of the day.....
Yeah the neighborhood does suck, but definitely worth it!
Couldn't agree more. A very well spoken young man and one with a bright future I'm sure.
I have to agree that the zoo is something to check out if you have time. The Mud Hens games are fun but they are out of town for the weekend. The art museum is pretty cool too if you're into that, and Imagination Station (formerly Cosi) downtown can be fun for the kids. If you're looking for something to do outside I would suggest going out to Maumee Bay State Park or Wildwood Metro Park.
I also agree for downtown dining to check out Tony Packo's, Durty Bird, or Pizza Papalis for some deep dish pizza. If it's nice outside the restaurants down on the docks like El Vaquero, Seafood Co. etc. have a good atmosphere. Inky's is a pretty good affordable Italian restaurant in my opinion, and Shorty's has good BBQ. Burger Bar 419 is good as well!
Next man up!
That's awesome! Certainly an accomplishment to be proud of as a parent. Bama is tough but it could be worse if she headed north. I had a full ride scholarship at tOSU so maybe she will snag one too and we'll have another Buckeye!
Either way, congratulations to you and your daughter!
One of the many many reasons I love having Urban Meyer as our coach....class act!
I'm a tropical paradise kind of guy. My favorite spots thus far are Costa Rica, St. Thomas, and Grand Turk. So many beautiful places and things to do in Costa Rica. St. Thomas is peaceful and beautiful, and snorkeling in Grand Turk was pretty cool!
Definitely a neatly trimmed beard. I hate shaving and I rock the beard better than the baby face.
He's entitled to change his mind....but he does realize he decommitted from the SEC killer for an SEC team, right? #undisputed
C'mon these kids came to Wisconsin to play football, not to play school so of course not.
But seriously, I doubt you're going to get a bunch of college football players to buy into something like that. I don't buy it.
I went to the Sugar Bowl when we played Arkansas a few years back. Definitely one of (if not the) best games I have been to. It's like Mardi Gras but with thousands of Buckeyes, doesn't get much better than that!
One of my favorite moments on Bourbon Street was going to the dueling piano bar. One of the piano players played Hang on Sloopy and doing the O-H-I-O. It also helped that we "won" that game. Would love to make it down there again.
