Doesn't really matter where a person is drafted, it matters what they do when they get there. And if you figure teams only get generally one pick a round, it could be 2-3 rounds before they get the guy they want because their needs/availability just line up differently than opponents and their scout assessments will be different.

What comes down to is game day performance. A Buckeye on a roster and starting says things to the young guys watching.

That fucking song... I got so damn sick of it. Just a shitty feeling sports song to me.

Heard it a while ago, instant memories. I mean if its gonna be burned into my head, at least it brings one of the most awesome memories of the Buckeyes to my mind. Still, fk that song.

Last year was the most dangerous Oregon looked IMO. Last year was the sign that their system really just is not going to cut it consistently against the big teams. Whooping Florida State was really a false positive, FSU sucked ass and everyone knew it.

Every time we encounter Oregon, its a tough match for a bit but eventually we just take control of the game. Their speed isn't as elusive as people perceive and they just simply don't have the strength in the trenches. I have not cared much for PAC12 simply based on that fact I don't feel there is shit for defense being played in the conference, and when their top programs get to the big end of year stuff, it becomes glaringly obvious. I haven't been scared of the PAC12 for a few years now. When they start playing defense out there, I'll worry, until then I am unbelievably happy if we match up against their teams because I don't think they have a chance in hell.

When it comes to it, Jordan has the titles. If you don't have the titles, its hard to argue you're better. IMO I'd rather have LBJ on my team before Michael because he brings some of that MJ effect but he also is quite strong at making my next 4 players that much better. That's in a 5v5 situation. If we're going to go 1v1 or 2v2 then I'd much rather have MJ as he finishes damned well and I think just has enough of a mental edge to do that. Also consider that MJ played in a much more physical contact era, I honestly believe if LBJ was given the ability to just physically beat people like they did in that era, he'd be WAY more terrifying than he is now. And this lack of physicality IMO makes it very hard to compare them.

Personal story below, disclaimer it ends boring.

Some dude wanted to get physically violent w/ me at a pub I regularly went to when LBJ went to the Heat. I enjoyed the way LBJ played and honestly just don't care about Cleveland so it didn't bother me. This guy was apparently salty as fuck. Towards the end of the Chicago game that first year when Chicago went HAM he started running his mouth(I had a jersey on) and eventually started getting up in my face challenging me to show up to the pub for each game. Tried explaining to him that ya know, I have a job during the week and I don't plan on attending a pub every 2-3 nights so he can gloat. (I entirely wasn't surprised by the beating nor what followed for that series.) Needless to say dude started getting way too close, bartender who knew me from the past few years of a weekly visit then promptly had him removed and told not to return.

Its a fucking game, some people got issues. This dude was being so aggressive it was nearing a point where I felt I would have had to defend myself. I don't get this intensity towards other people. I don't even take that animosity towards scum fans. I'll never understand that intensity, but seriously scary that people who are living together would turn to violence over a debate of an athlete vs another.

I must say, I really like the responses I've seen in this thread. A lot of well wishes for the kid and respect to MSU and valuing a BigTen get. Best of luck to him and bring on MSU. :D

Comment 25 Apr 2015

As much as I love the enthusiasm and the awesomeness of a nice QB line here, it is 1/11 people on the field. That means 10 other components need to work for that 1's to be effective. And that is also 1 side of the ball. There is the other 11 man crew responsible for getting that 1 guy back on the field w/ a reasonable situation to win. That's 21 people to 1 person, might wanna get that cart back behind the horse. :D

Comment 25 Apr 2015

But he's transferring to 'Bama... /s

My only big hang up with Miller, or rather two, I feel like he is too eager to pull the pull and run himself instead of trusting his pocket(Yes, there could have been reasons for that...) and he was too willing to try and beat a tackler. When I watch Barrett he'll only confront a tackler when you need the yards, if its not a need situation he just goes down where he won't get hit hard. Miller seemed to really miss this taking an obscene amount of hard hits. Really hoping that this has been adjusted, because it is just frustrating to watch your starter QB trying to out muscle way bigger dudes. And with the OLine just getting next level, hopefully he'll feel less pressure to make things happen with his feet and let his passing game shine.

I still want Barrett as the starter over the other two, liked him since he committed and was a very pleasant surprise last season. But TBH having 3 QBs who essentially bring their own to the game and are legit starter caliber, let's just say I love having QB depth after having to worry about Miller being the lead guy w/ an unproven Guitton(Sp?). Of course, we learned he was pretty smart QB and was better than expected as well. Watching over the last few years has been very interesting.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

Could make some better decisions. If I think I have a real shot at the NFL, I am not going to a program that is likely having a shotgun levelled at its head where I may never see post season bowls and/or have a scholarship reduction where my line is likely to become VERY thin which jeopardizes my career.

That event w/ Bosa, that was very close to a pretty ugly "whoops" and unless they fix that, he may have one ugly season ahead to protect himself from his own team.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

They'll step up some, but they are going against a pretty solid Buckeye team in the Shoe. Barrett was playing injured that game and was still working out some of his "WTF" passes, I believe this was the last game he made some just god awful interceptions. Also, the other side of this game was @MSU, I suspect that was weighing on many minds on the team which didn't have them entirely dialed into this game. This year it is followed by Illinois, good luck to PSU, but I hope we see a repeat of what ran their last QB to the NFL. I'm down for another humiliation of their program.

Comment 21 Apr 2015

Oh he can handle being solo in an eleven man game, just wait and see this year. /s

Yeah, really hard to not eat dirt when your OLine doesn't even understand how the fuck to block so your RB isn't up against a national level DE like Bosa.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

I second this. Just shut up about the show outside of content released publicly to this point. Just because they are leaked and you can watch the episodes up to Ep 4, I choose not to watch shitty ass SD quality and I have no problem getting a weekly dose instead of a month at once then waiting a month for the next new episode.

Yeah the leaks were just posted all over the TV and internet... But I can entirely see how you'd miss that.

I specifically avoided mentioning this person in particular. 

Yep you certainly did avoid naming him, you just decided that under this thread about him and his physique was the OPPORTUNE time to bring up a controversial topic that may or may not have anything to do with this individual.

You are either silently pointing to this individual for using PEDs, don't understand how this possibly is a terrible way to hijack a thread, are genuinely incompetent about the internet, or are full out dbag troll.

To some degree I feel like you're sticking your toe into a few of those pools there.

Comment 28 Mar 2015

Is there really any expectation of something different? Sorry but MJ just radiates arrogant jerk to me. Lebron same way. (I still respect both their talents immensely.)

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Really nice article, but I'm really just not sold on him as a QB. Perfectly happy to be proven absolutely wrong on the field in the upcoming years. (I'm not a coach, I don't scout recruits, so really I am way more likely to be wrong.) I just don't feel at his current stage he's impressive as a QB when I compare what I saw from JT Barrett, and yes I was high on getting Barrett.

Comment 24 Mar 2015

Diet is stupidly huge to long term success. All my weight loss has been while holding to healthy intake, while my gains have come from mostly massive surplus of food intake over a long period of time. Most people just changing their diet will start to feel better pretty quickly, and likely start losing weight as they should be eating at an acceptable caloric intake instead of the excessive.

As for morning workouts, ugh I have NEVER had a successful one. I hate morning, I hate everything about it, and that was true when I was in good shape as well. I perform well w/ late afternoon/early evening work outs personally. I know some who like night sessions, everyone is a bit different there.

Comment 22 Mar 2015

Not to be a huge nit pick here... But that isn't even related to freedom of speech.

That being said, this site basically can do whatever it wants in most senses and I certainly don't miss that guy at all. Of course, if I had that team I'd probably wanna hang somewhere that wasn't a shithole as well.

Comment 22 Mar 2015

You're not the first person I've talked to w/ this background that has made quite similar statements. Futurama seems to pull a lot of respect in animation and 3d work. I had no idea, but was a cool thing to learn. :D

Comment 22 Mar 2015

No, I just have a TV at work. I generally work solo so it gives me something to fill in the silence w/o being forced to listen to the unbearable repetitive radio stations that exist.

Comment 22 Mar 2015

Yes, been a fan of the show since it came out and keep hoping for yet another pick up for new content. The original content IMO was way better than the return, but I just enjoy it. There was a really consistent/well planned storyline to the show. But it isn't some highly sophisticated material, no.

Comment 21 Mar 2015

The guy watching this looks a STUPID amount like an old boss of mine...
