Did I hear Saban right when he basically said "the infractions committee doesn't meet anymore, so if you aren't cheating you aren't trying"?

Comment 01 Jul 2014

Wish I wasn't so busy at work.  I'm going to have to make a post later with my B1G/SEC comparison.  Maybe I can change your mind.  Like I said, my general outlook is "screw the rest of those losers in the B1G".  I just think that should be an Alabama fans mindset as well. 

Once again, apologies if my comment came across as condemnation of your work.  While I don't always agree with everything you say, or even how you say it, your work and opinion is much appreciated. 

Comment 01 Jul 2014

Sorry, it took so long to reply.  Busy at work....

I didn't mean for my comment to be a direct criticism of your work. which I mostly enjoy.  More of a criticism of my inability to wait another 60+ days for football season. 

I do whole-heartedly disagree with those two comments.  I'm sure the trophies are not meaningless for the people playing for them.  After all, gold pants are a trophy in my opinion. 

While I don't find myself often rooting for the rest of the B1G, I still don't think from top to bottom there is that much difference from the B1G to any other conference.  I know the SEC leads the way in titles, but Kentucky, Mississippi State, and Arkansas are no different than Indiana, Purdue, and Illinois.  So calling the B1G ( and by default, the Buckeyes) mediocre is buying into the hype...once again in my opinion. 

Comment 01 Jul 2014

These two statements:

~~Yes, it's true, we in the B1G love trophies — as long as they don't represent anything of actual worth.  

~~Welcome to our shitty little football club, Rutgers and Maryland. We do other stuff good, but mediocre football is what is truly synonymous with our brand.

While I've grown to say screw the rest of the B1G (after all, we are not the SEC), please remember to exclude the Buckeyes in your quips.  Between your snide remarks and the fact that there is very little Buckeye football info to report this morning, skull session has put me in a bad mood.  If you would have had a section about how you think players shouldn't have to go to classes, players should be paid millions, or Jameis Winston stole the crab legs because he was staving, my head may have exploded.

Soccer? Meh.....64 days until we get to watch real football!

 

Comment 25 Jun 2014

~~Listen, Ohio State will be a better football team this year. If anyone tries to argue that Penn State will be better than Ohio State, I implore you to do everything in your power to try and sell them moldy bread at $10 a slice, and say that the weird bluish-green stuff growing on it are MAGICAL TASTE SPRINKLES. They'll probably go for it, because they are a moron.

My computer screen looks amazing now after cleaning all the coffee that I spewed everywhere when reading this.  "Magical Taste Sprinkles" may be my new favorite term.

  • I've grown to despise the rest of the B1G.  I don't have to root for the rest of you losers!
  • I actually like the scarlet end zones.  (I know they aren't the right shade of red) I think the gray looked drab.
  • When Ted Ginn returned the opening kick off for a touchdown in the NC game, I stood up and loudly proclaimed "Let the ass beating begin boys!", and it did..........

I had to read back through twice.  Did DJ really just drop a "F-Bomb" in the skully?  Damn right he did.  It's going to be a good Monday!  *drops microphone and walks off stage

Comment 06 Jun 2014

Just curious, but where did the term "sail" come from?  Its not like this is anything new.  This is a simple flood pattern.  Flood the zone with "Deep, 10, 2". 

 

Comment 06 Jun 2014

Seriously?  Only 7 helmet stickers for this?  Maybe only 7 of us know what it is........

Well played sir, well played.

 

Comment 22 May 2014

I hate to put names out there, but my experience was with Newark Catholic.  I'm not putting them down in anyway, its just hard for a school with the limit of boys and a school 30-40 boys under the limit to compete with each other. 

 

Comment 21 May 2014

Finally!  This has been a problem forever.  My alma mater made it to the (at the time) D6 playoffs.  They faced a catholic school in the first round.  My school had 95 boys in 9-12.  Thirty-five players on the roster.  The catholic school, which by the rules has to have 120 or less boys in 9-12 shows up and has 70 kids on the football team.  How is this fair?  Hopefully this fixes the problem.

Thirtytrap coached at a small D7 school in southeast Ohio.  He was one of my coaches.  After a 3 year break, I'm going back to coach there now.  Hopefully we can get Thirtytrap on the staff in some capacity!

~~For you youngsters who only saw Troy Smith through Youtube highlight reels, buckle your seat-belts.

I giggled like a school girl at the thought of this....... 

Comment 20 May 2014

The thing I like about EZE is that he is always looking to square his shoulders to get up field, and he seems patient with his blocks.  Some of these may have been against inferior competition, but with the decisions he was making it doesn't matter.  He gives his blockers time, and then turns on the jets.  I really like how he doesn't just run to sidelines, instead he makes defenders commit, and a little jump cut to the side and up field he goes.  Nothing he does looks forced, but just pure natural talent.  He may remind me a little of Mo, but I won't put him in that league yet.  Regardless, I'm excited about having EZE at tailback.

Us fans across the Buckeye state are definitely lucky.  I'd put our announcers up against anybody.

Comment 02 May 2014

I like Tom Hamilton, but in my opinion he isn't the best radio announcer for baseball games in the Buckeye state. You have to listen to a Reds game to hear the best.  As far as Ohio State football goes........ Paul Keels > anybody else

Comment 02 May 2014
Couldn't agree more. These are probably the same people that said Winston STEALING crab legs wasn't a big deal.
Comment 30 Apr 2014
Pryor was never accused of rape, or theft (that I'm aware of). I agree he was far from perfect. You may be right about the national title.
Comment 30 Apr 2014

I'm going to call bullshit on that last comment. I'm a small business owner. He is not a kid.  Shoplifting is a crime, and really adds up to major losses for small businesses like mine.

I agree that we'll never know the truth about the rape case, and we should give him the benefit of the doubt.

He is a great player.  His teammates seem to love him, and seems to be a great leader.  There is just something there, that I don't like. 

Comment 30 Apr 2014

I don't know what it is, about that guy, but I just don't like him.  Maybe I'd feel differently if he was wearing Scarlet and Gray, but there's just something there....

 

Comment 30 Apr 2014

I'm so sick of hearing about Oregon.  I know Mariotta is coming back, but come on!  What the hell have they ever won?  Why do they always get ranked so high in the preseason?  Their "best team ever" got abused by the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl.  Last years version, was physically abused by Stanford.  Every year, its the same thing.....

 

Comment 22 Apr 2014

Surely you could have written about "Spring Game:  Why We Still Need to Fire Fickell" or "Herbie: Saint or Sucks?" to help fill up space and mix things up a bit?
