So he just deleted the photo and removed the mentions, not like he made changes to something different and its being read into more than it should. (Admittedly, I don't care, I don't follow a single OSU coach/athlete on twitter because well, I'll get my info here. And this is likely a nothing to see here incident.)
Day made, ty.
Honestly I can't really say that because I don't know the scale of previous situations that well. It seems like there are always events and problems going on that are tragic and of a high level of concern. Tensions feel a lot higher in the last ~5 years than the rest of my life, but whether or not that is a factor of me being young/child or if things have really gotten ramped up. Also I don't know how rough it was in the 70s/80s or the civil rights issues in the 60s, or vietnam, or WWII. It just seems there is always something going on, and unfortunately only the big things were documented from those eras, they didn't have a media so out of control that you basically can't miss information if you look for it now. Documentation due to the internet has substantially changed exposure of information, which is for the most part a really good thing.
All I know is I know shit, I am still learning, The biggest factor from me to my parents is heavily based in wisdom which mostly comes from experience and listening to your elders, both of which I actively do and I imagine a good portion is still lost on me. I am more intelligent than my father and mother, but they know a HELL of a lot more about life than I do. I just focus on living day to day and taking care of the people I care about and when I can, helping others. I keep it simple, otherwise my depression becomes a real pain in the ass to deal with.
I call them young kids who made a decision to join their country's military. Basic training is going to work out their discipline issues. If it doesn't I would imagine they'd be kicked out? Also I'd venture a guess that young kids in the military have made mistakes as well that would receive some sort of, oh I don't know, court marshal or disciplinary action? 18-25 is an age where people first develop freedom from their parents and try to learn from their own experiences, sometimes they are going to make mistakes. There are punishments for this, which is the whole point of them. It puts them back in line and hopefully they learn from it.
Also, the age based elitism is real. Instead of just assuming young people are inferior, maybe take into consideration you are at a benefit of wisdom and experience they have not yet had the opportunity to learn. I hear my parents all the time mention how all this doom and gloom bad stuff that happens on the news isn't new crap, it is just over saturated and covered with the media exposure today. I can probably establish a bridge that YOUR generation also had its fair share of mistake making people who were also disciplined as well. I look at my family and I can see the variety of mistakes made at several levels, it turns out that is just apart of life.
Some people don't learn from other's mistakes. My dad has advised me in many things in my life, in an attempt to simplify things for me. I have never really learned from this method from anyone. I learn from walking the walk and having a reasoning and understanding behind my decisions(good and bad). 30 years old, still learning things the hard way, and I am fine with that. I know my dad knows better, his advice is likely right(Yes, he has been wrong in the past so there is plausible reason to question), but not knowing what is behind it makes it nearly impossible for me to LEARN from it. I also was taught well enough to use pretty decent reasoning skills and it helps me make slightly better decisions so ya know, I don't die or hurt anyone else's lives with my mistakes.
With Barrett in I saw the offense feeling more fluid and moving easier at times. There was a much better "click" it seemed like. And that's without him being able to get the time in as the starter, he's had significantly less reps in the games until now. He definitely hasn't taken the opportunity and seized it, but he's also coming in off a bench and having to sort of step in when the other guy has shown struggles. That's a bit tougher than coming in with the lead.
Don't care if black uni, care if it looks good or not... That looks like shit. And I love how amazing black can look if used properly.
I am getting up, a group of my opponents from our rival are gathering around me probably talking shit, I talk shit, things get heated, my helmet gets removed, yeah I'm taking swings at 18/19 years old too. Dontre didn't make a smart decision, so be it, but this is nothing like maybe a guy holding you on the backside of a play where you rip his helmet off and then dome him with it. It isn't even close, sorry.
I think it is more the following up on what will happen if you do that which was being pointed out. Less about telling him consequences, more showing him the consequences. And in this case, maybe no one following up is why he's gotten this far/out of control. (Of course I'd look to see if his teammates were doing this crap as well before thinking its anything more than a teenage boy being an asshole.)
JT also didn't get the playing time either. But my point was concerning Cardale. And I didn't just base it off this game. It may simply just be offseason/out of sync/hostile road/short week issues here that will sort out in a couple weeks. Or it could be something else. I just don't have the same feeling watching Cardale running the offense so far as I did JT last year. Doesn't even mean it is bad, but Cardale set a stupid high bar in those 3 games end of season, so hard for me to seeing him really progressing that opportunity forward more just yet. If he does, that's absolutely sicko and GG NFL. Just hesitant right now with Cardale as the guy, and it is mostly my gut feeling about it that anything else.
Yeah I'm already sick of the wildcat. I like it as a wrinkle, not a staple of the offense.
Second game last year, our OLine sucked then as well. JT was offered as a sacrifice to the gods or some shit with like 7 sacks or something ridiculous like that. By the end of the year the unit was stupidly good. While the same experienced unit is back this year, they just went into a hostile environment and then short weeked it back to Cbus. In VT they allowed 0 sacks I believe, and I don't recall an actual sack of any significance in yesterday's game. And when EzE ran, he seemed to do decent when they committed to interior runs where the line was able to do its job. It wasn't pretty yesterday, but these two games aren't something to go crazy about. All the mean while they still put up 38 points, a pretty damn good scoreline for a unit clearly tired and under performing. Not ready to be worried yet.
Being confused as to why my own dude is tackling me is more likely to cause me to fumble than the yards in front of me as I run to the endzone.
At least there he was trying to help give the guy a boost... I mean stupid, laughable, sure... But it was w/ good intent. WTF is the idea of straight up tackling the guy wearing the same ugly ass color as yourself? That's MIND blowing to me.
Just, how can you be this bad as a team? WTF recruiting is going on there...
Need a spoon?
Yet I can't play online poker because of the biggest load of shit ever. Not salty at all, promise. (FanDuel basically reads exactly like everyone old poker commercial I remember now.)
And what exactly what JT doing on his 5th start? Cardale feels more in regression than progression, especially when compared to JT's career.
Cardale is good, I just feel like anytime I see JT in there the offense just moves more smoothly as a unit. It'd be nice to see that in some really meaningful situations. Cardale is getting a good shot here and I just am not impressed. That being said the OLine isn't as stout as it was end of last season. Not sure if big first game and a short as hell week or signs of an issue. Overall I am not nearly as impressed with his passing today. Ultimately just gonna ride the ride and see what happens.
Ending this on a positive note, I LOVE seeing that OSU defense that I remember from many years ago. Locking down the goose egg, interceptions, fumbles, recoveries for TDs. First time I got that OSU defense vibe in years. I am so welcome to the return of that!
If we're assuming a shit game like this... TBH, hanging out with my friends outside somewhere or going anywhere on a small weekend trip. I'd still check in for score, but I really just don't feel it'll be anything competitive or interesting. Considering how shit VT looked after Brewer went down, I assume a worse version of that quality and I was bored out of my mind then... I love watching us play and its my priority on Saturdays, but I would snub the shit games for friends and family easily enough.
Now we talk about The Game, relevant games, night games(usually), or potential tough matches I am expecting like PSU last year(I didn't expect THAT close, but a tough night valley crowd) then well, I honestly I'd probably miss most weddings I might ever be invited to.
Who the fuck outsources their twitter for their business... Like, really... What?
Incredibly passionate and incredibly uninformed about her team. She's so loyal she actually knows its players really well... (Mind you, I didn't think I could easily list off 5 players from our current team. When I tried this I found out I knew WAY more players than I thought. My weak spots were DBs and Linemen.) She's the worst kind of fan for a program IMO. My GF hated OSU when I first met her, it took a couple years and Urban Fucking Meyer to repair the distaste this kind of fan in our program had brought to her.
Being loyal and passionate is great, but being a trolling lunatic who is entirely blind to their program on many levels is just a shit quality fan. A small group of the base that leave a strongly negative image to the public.
While I am happy with the result last night, I am not that enamored with our performance. Honestly, it felt pretty weak compared to last season, especially the ending. I know it is first game, on road, hostile as hell environment... But it just didn't feel as good as the team that ended the season... Mainly the OLine, the one that came together so well and got damn good last post season. That felt like a regressed unit to me. Still good, still the team to beat, but objectively I am not swept off my feet currently. I am hoping suspensions, first game/road game/hostile environment, and other misc things contributed to the feel of this and they shake it off with Hawaii.
Oh and, holy shit Braxton spin move is nasty. That move in position may be my happiest point this year. (I wouldn't hate EzE getting that destined Heisman either though.)
Still trying to register what he did to that team there.
If you don't care, why make a post? I don't get it.
Don't tempt the fates, shit always bites you. Felt bad but it immediately went to "And that's why you don't say shit like that."
