Eh, I wouldn't have hired him.
While he never played college basketball, Pryor was a highly ranked basketball recruit who had committed to Pitt at one point to play basketball. If he would have been serious about basketball, he probably could have started here
I'll second that. I was there 2 years ago and the week before Braxton had gotten injured and not played a few series or something (surprise) and many of their fans said something to the tune of "I hope your QB is ok for the game".
One of his misses was off the upright, that's more chance than skill. Sure if it bounces off the upright its a miss, but at least he was on target with enough leg to get it there. He will be fine.
Exactly how it should be. John Wooden wrote in one of his books that if an assistant's play or scheme worked, he would publicly praise him, but if it didn't work, he would take the blame himself since ultimately it was his team and his call on what to do.
But Dan Mullen was. I think its definitely worth mentioning that Urban's 2 national titles came with current major program head coaches as his coordinators. I don't think any of our coordinators have that in their future the way things are going now. This doesn't mean I think Urban is a bad coach, but clearly winning titles at this level is more than just a 1 man job.
Right, even if an agreement is made, the fact that Gordon's failed test came during the 2013 league year means he has a small chance of getting his suspension reduced.
First thing I do at my tailgate is shotgun a Foster's Oil Can. A friend got it for me as a joke one game and we haven't lost a home game since.
Parking depends on your pregame plans. If you're going to tailgate at your car, the best thing is to park at any of the red lots on this map:
If you're going to little bar or out-r-inn, i would try to find street parking east of high st, or pay to park in someone's yard in the area. The good thing is that traffic after games isn't horrible since most roads are only open to go away from the stadium.
Take VA Tech over 7.5, its free money
If he's done for the year then he's going pro. Gotta get paid at this point.
Get the ball to samuel, dontre, zeke, jalin, thomas, etc. and let them run free. We'll be fine.
Most football/basketball recruits stay in the Blackwell. Recruits for other non-revenue sports usually stay at either the Hilton Garden Inn, Fairfield Inn, University Plaza Hotel, or Spring Hill Suites on Olentangy River Road. The athletic department has a relationship with these hotels and gets discounted rates.
Andrew Hawkins with the Browns has a chance to put up some numbers for as long as Josh Gordon is out. I took a $1 flier on him in my auction draft figuring he could become a reliable #2 for part of the season.
Whatever happened to giving out the ol' suspension while they complete the investigation and then deciding what to do permanently once full discovery has been completed? That way nobody hastily makes a decision like this prematurely. If the investigation finds he did stuff that warranted firing, then fire him and there won't be a huge backlash because all the facts will be present. If he isn't fired, then lift the suspension and the whole mess goes away without all this negative press for everyone.
Isn't ND joining the ACC in 2017 or something like that? I know they won't be a "full member", but will play at least 6 or 7 games against ACC opponents while protecting their USC rivalry.
I like how a lot of his blocks are to teammates. Sure blocking a shot into the 5th row is cool, but the other team gets the ball right back and has another chance to score. If you block it to your teammate, or keep it in bounds, it will produce extra possessions for your team.
Does anybody really think that firing him will change those band traditions? I read the report and correct me if I'm wrong, but nowhere in it does it say anything about him personally doing anything to a member. It seems like while he did not himself participate in those activities while head of the band, he just failed to act which allowed them to continue.
Do we really think that the next band director will be any different? The students will still have some form of hazing or initiation, they'll just probably be more cautious on how they do it and more selective on where it takes place. It seems to me that nothing is going to change, save a senior using a freshman's nickname in front of a director.
Firing Jon Waters (whether right or wrong) isn't going to fix the problem, it is only going to redirect where and when it takes place.
The most serious part of this whole situation is what mile marker Torrance Gibson is at....
As recent history shows, the BIG Championship game is a trap game for OSU. Last year, there wasn't a soul among us who thought we would lose to Michigan St. in that game. We were all talking about how Bama losing put is in the driver's seat for the NC game, and were making plans to go to Pasadena.
ATL is a huge Delta hub so I would check with them. I did a quick search on skyscanner.com and found multiple Delta flights outbound on the 5th and returning on the 7th for $200 roundtrip. That's about the cheapest you're going to find, and not a bad price overall.
