Honestly, he numbers would probably go up if there was a rumor she slept with another man. An affair would suggest that she is not a cybernetic organism, living tissue over metal endoskeleton. 

Comment 27 Jul 2015

I obviously disagree, but mainly because I'm significantly higher on JT. I'm in the minority here, but I want JT in the game 90% of the time. I believe him to be not only the most intelligent QB on the roster, but also the best leader. Intangibles should be a factor.  No doubt Cardale's cannon is a weapon, but I'll take accuracy over power every day of the week. I'm cool with Cardale being brought in for certain situations, but I don't want to see some setup where they are alternating series all year long. I think that will hurt continuity on offense over the long haul. I agree though, it seems criminal to let a potential first round pick sit on the bench so much. Guys with cannons like Cardale are few and far between (even in the NFL). 

Comment 27 Jul 2015

Why would you have a platoon when either guy could be a 1st team all Big Ten QB? You usually use a platoon when your QB's are unproven or have very very different skill sets. Neither JT or Cardale has a glaring weakness that would justify this philosophy of mixing and matching. Sure, it would make more sense to bring in Cardale when you have to throw a 60 yard bomb. Or maybe you bring in JT to run a series of read option plays. But for the most part, the platoon wouldn't offer many advantages. JT isn't like Chris Leak and Cardale isn't like a freshman Tebow. Just hand the reigns to one QB and let him lead the most potent offense in the country. Don't overthink it and try a new platoon experiment.

Would love to see his moves in the 4th quarter when he actually has fresh legs. We have never really seen him very fresh late in a game because he always carried such a ridiculous amount of the offense. 

Comment 27 Jul 2015

Good points here. Jalin looks to be a full time WR this year so the H-back position is between Samuel/Wilson. And as you mentioned, Samuel will be backing up Zeke along with playing H-back among other roles. Samuel will be very busy moving all over the place so Braxtons biggest competition for playing time may be dontre wilson. Dontre has some wheels, but Braxton is bigger, faster, and an all around better athlete. Braxton's ability to throw also gives him the trick play advantage. This matters when you have a head coach that loves to give defensive coordinators as much to think about as possible.

I think a lot of people were even surprised when gurley went that early. Especially when the Rams already Tre Mason. That being said, Zeke could be a top 15 pick depending on what teams are picking. Great fit for a zone scheme that also incorporates a heavy dosage of RB targets. Zekes excellent receiving skills really set him apart there. Would love to see what Zeke could do in a wide open offense like that of Chip Kelly.

 I live in Florida, just across the border from Alabama and I've been hearing the SEC crap for years. That game alone shut them all up. 

Amen! People up north probably don't understand how big it is to not have to take crap from every single bandwagon SEC fan. It doesn't matter if their team has accomplished nothing like UGA , they jump on the SEC bandwagon and pretend like Bama's victories are their own. So if Bama had beaten Ohio State, every UGA /UF fan would have acted like they beat Ohio State as well. It makes no logical sense and I've given up trying to talk sense into the SEC nuts. Regardless, Ohio State's victory has spared me years of endless torment. Best time ever to be a Buckeye fan!

Comment 17 Jul 2015

Worst Loss: 2003 vs. Michigan. I was in the 8th grade and had been talking smack all year long to my best friend who happens to be a Michigan fan. We were loaded on defense and I thought for sure we would be able to shut down Edwards and company. I watched the game with my Michigan friend, which turned out to be a very bad idea. I still have nightmares of Chris Perry breaking tackles and making OSU defenders look absolutely silly. It was the first time I was ultra invested in OSU and got crushed by UM. It did teach me to truly hate UM though.

Best Win: Beating Alabama this year. Why? Because I live in the south. This made the victory 100 times sweeter and has allowed me to live a life where I don't have to take crap 24/7 from dumb rednecks. Thank you Urban! 

Comment 08 Jul 2015

Dodd is bad, but I remember when CBS Sports used to have Mike Freeman and Gregg Doyel. Those guys absolutely trashed Ohio State. Two of the guys who can't wait to talk about how Ohio State didn't have "SEC Speed." Pat Forde on ESPN has been equally brutal in recent years. 

Comment 08 Jul 2015

Haven't gone to a game in about 8 years sadly (I live in GA), but I'm trying to find two tickets for the Penn State game. Where/when is the best place to buy them? My max budget for the two tickets is $500. Would love to find some cheaper, but I don't want a really crappy seat either. Any advice/suggestions for a novice?

Comment 06 Jul 2015

Good find from the Peachtree in Atlanta. I love running in it even though this year it was extremely rainy. Unbelievable finish. The American had it in the bag, but the Brit took advantage of his pre mature celebration and beat him by a hair at the last second. Looks like Mark May celebrated a little early too. 

Comment 02 Jul 2015

Pretty much agree for the most apart. JT is good at everything, but his arm strength is very average. Most of the time this is irrelevant since he is such a great decision maker, but there were a few times when a little extra air on the ball would have really helped devin smith. Maybe this year it won't matter as much with smith gone and more short/middle of the field targets (Van, Samuel, Marshall, Dontre, Brown) emerging. With a wealth of young playmakers, having a QB with elite short/middle accuracy is what you want. 

Comment 02 Jul 2015

Position change is a possibility but I thought he might wait until August to do that. That would allow him to test his arm out and also evaluate the camp competition. If things aren't going well after a week and he thinks his chances are slim he could officially change positions and get some reps at H-back before the start of the season. Would be surprised if he just threw in the towel before the competition got started. Unless he truly believes that his shoulder is never going to be the same. Which seems like a real possibility. 

Comment 02 Jul 2015

Guess thats a possibility but I would be shocked if he entered. I don't think any team would want to draft him without knowing whether he can bounce back from his injury. Even if he has to change positions he would still benefit from coming back and proving he can stay healthy and make plays. Might as well stay at Ohio State and straighten the situation out rather than spent a year on some NFL teams practice squad. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

I'm not sure which was worse. Harbaugh's interview or Tom Brady's press conference. These Michigan guys just need to stay in hiding

Comment 01 Jul 2015

I think his tweet only draws more attention to his blunder. If I was him I would have just moved on and acted as if I could care less. But Harbaugh is an ego maniac and somehow expects people to believe that Colin (who does interviews for a living) messed up as well. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

Latest I heard is five years and $80 million. Thats a ton for a defensive specialist with a limited offensive game. He is a good player, but I think $65 million would have been closer to his real value.
