A 15 lb difference in wt is not much to write home about.
Tressel recruited an OL from Nordonia by the name of Rob Simms, who, in spite of the knocks against his position coach (the Walrus) turned into a drafted NFL lineman, just like his dad. Rob played at OSU from 2003-2005. Google his name for more details, if you like.
This agent, and his remarks, seem to be on the same page as the TP we grew to know during his time at TOSU. Seems they got their heads together and agreed on the spin of the boss. I'd like to think I'm wrong on this take but, it feels like vintage TP to me.
Whenever you get to read this. Congratulations on your marriage and best of luck in your career. You are already an exemplary role model.
Great to hear you're doing well!
Go Tyson and Go Bucks!
I struggle with having to listen to a woman call a football game, at any level but, I don't think Rice should be disrespected, or underestimated, for being able to make an informed, and intelligent decision as a member of the College Football Playoff Section Committee.
Pollack obviously doesn't agree with this line of thinking, but I don't see where it's a big deal if he shares his honest opinion on the air...he's just being Frank, instead of David.
Coach Vrabel: "Listen Jamal! Can you hear me?!"
Jamal: "Yes sir."
Vrabel: "That's what I'm talkin' about!"
"That's Ohio State Football!"
"That's how we play at the next level!"
"I'm so proud of you!"
Why not? It's worth a look. If the camera gets Brax to do, or even nearly do, what Herman has in mind, it would be a useful tool.
Does it account for peripheral vision, probably not, unless the lens is wide-angle, but it's certainly worth an experiment.
I'm in the 1 percent that voted for Other, as I find all the above of equally, intriguing interest at the start of camp.
Another sports viewing option at this time of year is tennis. Who knows, Buckeye Fans might be cheering for Blaz Rola in the French Open sometime in the not too distant future.
Thank you Ramzy, for giving us a peek at the life of a wonderful gentleman.
Dr. Gordon Gee's humorous aggressiveness, reflects the relentless, aggressive style of the Ohio State University head football coach. You're damn straight it's appropriate! Go Bucks!
Dez, it sure looks like you will make your Dad, Cleveland, and Buckeye Nation proud!
When most of us listen to President Gee in person, the tendency is to believe everything he has to say sounds appropriate for that moment in time... and it usually is. Too bad he often has to apologize to all the haters for being funny and charismatic.
"...with Wisconsin, Nebraska and perhaps Northwestern in contention in the East." Good article Michael, but I believe you meant to say (West) at the end of the above sentence.
The end of the US Civil War was 1861. Add the 31 years later when the conference was formed for the year 1892, minus today's year of 2013 and you get 121 years of the league's existence.
Kyle, you said, "...carrying cachet that few in college sports have matched spanning the three centuries it’s been in existence."
This is the best example of hyperbole I've seen since the last millennium!
What a whiny, sports-writing homer! Does he get a pass to write something as senselessly racist as the above because her's white? I hope not.
If the rag he writes for had any integrity he'd loose his job out of pure ignorance, but then again, he apparently got a green light to print this drivel from his editor, so he's probably in for a raise instead.
Hoke: "Hey Mark, your mascot passes our 'look test' for student-athlete recruits."
Perhaps this casual observation is due more to recruiting paranoia than anything else, but the Dontre Wilson announcement, at 10 PM ET, reminds me of a West Coast time slot.
The trend has been that the Buckeyes play down to, or below, their competition in the first quarter. On the other hand, you could say the competition plays up to, or beyond, the Buckeyes in the first quarter. And this may be a trend that continues for the rest of the season.
Similar to the first six games, I imagine the "other trend" will start to unfold after the 1st-Q. That's when the other team has played-out most of its production of adrenalin. At the same time, the Bucks start to relax, execute, and dominate.
Here'e to hoping the "other trend" continues to develop every game and peaks for The Game.
Alex, what position do you think, or hear, Darron Lee ends up playing? I've noticed he's having a great senior HS year on offense.
Thank you for mentioning Marcus Marek. How sweet was the solo-tackle he made at the goal line to keep ttun from winning The Game? Am I dreaming, or was he a true freshman at the time?
As an NBA Allstar, Mark Price was athletically similar to Aaron Craft, but two inches shorter.
The 6-foot (183 cm) Price played college basketball at Georgia Tech. During his time playing on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets men's basketball team, he was a two-time All American and four-time All ACC basketball player who helped lead the Yellow Jackets to an ACC Championship his junior year by defeating North Carolina in the ACC Tournament championship game. He was named the ACC Most Valuable Player for the 1984-85 season and his jersey was retired. A point guard, he mystified critics who said he was too slow, too small and too deliberate for a high-level game. Selected first in the second round (25th overall) by the Dallas Mavericks in the 1986 NBA Draft, he was acquired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a draft day trade that helped turn the team into an Eastern Conference power.
Mark Price was a four-time NBA Allstar, and played in the League for 12 years. Price was known for his stroke from beyond the arc, and the fowl line. Craft averaged 26 ppg in high school and will develop a more consistent shot, since more offense will be expected of him this year.
There's no doubt in my mind Craft can play in the League, if he wants to. He already plays better defense than Price, but Price was also a tenacious defender for his size.
Stencil for the SEC logo.
Unfortunately, it's too long a haul to be a doable road trip. If I still lived in NE Ohio I would definitely make plans to attend. I'll have to catch a glimpse of the festivities on BTN, and rely on the reports from 11dub as usual.
Go Meyer! Go Bucks!
