9/11 are new on offense. The QB hasn't had a snap of college ball until now. Taking one half to kind of get things clicking isn't a pace I'm upset with at all. You can have all the talent in the world, but if it doesn't click its not worth a lot.
I heard "It is true Brady Hoke..." Just me and the Jager or did he botch that?
Normally I'd pull for tsun so the conference can gain respect and make our wins more meaningful. That being said, I can't entirely say I'd be disappointed seeing that blow to the nuts early on for them. For me, its a win win. Either tsun wins as intended and doesn't make an ass of itself or they get humiliated again and all the michigan men lose their fucking minds.
Ah, I re-read it a couple times, caught it. My bad! :D I'mma just blame the drama of losing Braxton as leaving me discombobulated or w/e. :D I'll stfu and go away now!
"The Buckeyes are one of a handful of college teams still in the hunt for the country's 26th-ranked player, and he will be make his second visit to Columbus in six weeks, his official visit, on the weekend of September 6th."
Wouldn't this be more like 2.5 weeks? Or is he visiting a different weekend? Whoops moment?
Can anyone explain the WuTang Clan references for the next 4 years? I feel like I am missing something.
He mentions cop paragraph 4, lines 3/4. It wasn't an assumption on OP's part there, it is in the letter West wrote. As for the rest of your point, I have nothing to say about that except awesome for his foundation.
The penssylvania state... dafuq? What shit are the passing around about that?
Ah sorry, I thought it was a reply to the one above, but clearly wasn't. The formatting here tricks me sometimes. I'd imagine that as we have recruited well for DB that they'd probably want to try and use him on offense more, but that is just my opinion.
Dontre Wilson, listed as a RB I believe? But there was never a defensive consideration for him.
Preferred walk ons possibly?
If the players aren't the right fit, better for everyone to go their separate ways.
Well that was stupid, on quite a few levels. More embarrassing for Hyde to see that IMO. Weak on both sides.
Yet, racial slurs or sexist slurs could draw the great majority of the country into an aggressive attack very quickly. While they shouldn't provoke action, they do. If Hyde were to do something of this distaste, then you can't remove all blame from him. Of course, I still wouldn't have an idea what kind of punishment table this would put him in, but I could see words receiving SOME sort of backlash from Urban, even if nothing more than just a tongue lashing. I'd be highly skeptical to see anything more than an above average practice difficulty for it.
Wow that highlight is actually REALLY good at that point... The further into the game the more he started doing substantial damage. I'd be fking scared of this dude running over my defense if I were opposing him.
If he is clear of charges and incident, Meyer is not going to give him a game suspension for someone taking a swing at him then filing a false police report. This logic is absurd. Punishing someone for walking away from a stupid situation is stupid as hell. He was listed as a person of interest, school cuts ties pending outcome, outcome shows player did nothing wrong and arguably did a smart thing and walked away, why would you punish them? This at most merits a little talk and I'd say positive reinforcement for making the smarter move.
(The logic of punishing Hyde here would be sending a message that if you go and have a social life and do nothing wrong you can still end up punished just for making a decision to go have a social life.)
That is a pretty high task to ask for that person. He made his mistake in this such medium, he apologized in this such medium. To ask him to obtain some sort of access to Hyde to make a personal apology, that's asking a bit much. I guess it wouldn't be impossible to write a letter and mail to WHAC and that may just get to him...
The lesson: Even if you didn't do something wrong, doesn't mean someone won't try and possibly tear you down. In this case, there was a surveillance camera to potentially save his ass. If that camera wasn't there, the narrative remains VERY similar to Monday and could have become a very deep rabbit hole. Just gotta be careful and realize that some places/events may end you up where you didn't intend, quickly.
Given the multiple people I have heard that have met him, the accusations of what "happened" don't even fit him and its really sad that it got thrown out there like this.
Assaulting OSU football player vs daughter of a Columbus cop... I would think that the football player actually wins the "power" struggle, though who her dad is could help sway a more lenient punishment.
Either way, I imagine her dad is entirely ecstatic about his daughter's humiliating behavior...
Yeah, I can go either way for or against buying NCAA. That cover selection made it easier for me to not split my time w/ NCAA this year. Not the main reason, but it was the easiest deciding factor since I was on the fence whether or not to buy it anyway.
I believe I saw somewhere an explanation concerning this. Pryor was penalized for trying to manipulate the draft system, not what he actually did at OSU. Tressel was punished by the Colts organization, not the NFL.
Buy into that or not, accept it or not, that makes it so any punishment for Kelly wouldn't be logical.
So far what baffles me about the whole star rating concern... Collier comes in as a "Who" and "What kind of rating" when I heard about him. I also recalled that he had an Elite 11 finals invite(This now puts an OSU recruit 2 years in a row in this group) and an Opening spot. Oh and he camped with the staff able to directly see him. So you're telling me I should be worried rivals, scout, 247, or anyone else had him low rated and this isn't a good acquisition at all for us....
Urban Freaking Meyer, moving on.
(This attitude is even applicable to Holmes who is already showing the buck wishagain attitude and one guy who Urban tags as one of the fastest he has ever seen.)
I like high star guys, but I also like guys who want it more. Hunger greats a pretty unbelievable drive in athletes, and drive will be required to stay focused on the big picture. I am not blown away by 2014, I also still see many months ahead and lots of guys who are highly interested and I could see a good summer followed by a nice January swing for the Buckeyes. #stoked
"Epexted to be announced"
Typo there, just a heads up.
