Well, I'm no fan of alt-unis but I must admit I like this one a lot. A lot. Really cool. And does not - in my opinion - desecrate the flag.
Everybody needs to take a deep breath and remember Urbs didn't get where he was because he's a dummy. Think he didn't know they needed to adjust? Think they were playing checkers at halftime instead of scheming like mad?
There's lots us sideline coaches don't/can't see from the TV view and maybe the standard answers Urban would've liked to have gone to didn't/wouldn't work because our personnel just weren't good Saturday night.
Urban and his bunch didn't do well Saturday night but I'm not convinced he needs a ton of help from us sideline geniuses...
That said, I'm just as mad as anybody - I felt like it was same ol' same ol' all night. And our O-line was getting killed all night. How about we stop that ridiculous zone-read fake (where the VT defense was arriving about the time JT pulled the ball out) and DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT! I don't know what that might have been - but I don't have to know. I'm not the coach. FIX IT Urban!
Pelini has done a lot of stupid stuff and won nothing. How is he the standard for anything? Urban has TWO NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, one at our expense. Doesn't that buy a guy some credibility? I think it does.
Loved the comments on Skyline chili ... but for those of us who live in the south a follow-up describing what Skyline chili is would be in order. From the picture above it looks like something you serve on spaghetti? That ain't chili in the Lone Star state, brutha! But that doesn't mean it can't be good. More info needed!
* Over and under for times Johnny says "dude" in the next podcast is officially set at 24. I'm taking the over.
* Everything you said about cookies after "Girl Scout thin mints are over-rated" was clearly meaningless. Over-rated? How can the greatest cookie in the history of civilization be over-rated? When the aliens invade (and they will, oh yes they will) they will want two things: (1) to see Script Ohio in person and (2) thin mints.
* Question for ask us anything: alt unis? good or bad? black jerseys? travesty or swag? where is the podcast on alt unis?
Great work in the podcast. It's a great listen for those of us who do not get Buckeye news in our local media every day. I look forward to it every week.
I live in the south, enjoy hunting very much, would consider myself very pro-gun ... and still find this picture more than a little disturbing.
Really really well done. Makes you realize how much is going on during a play, and how hard that is to pick up from the limited view of the tv screen. I'm coaching like mad from my couch and every week this write up helps me realize that I'm in no danger of taking Urban's job any time soon....
44-21 Bucks roll.
If that's the kind of food we can expect when we visit Maryland then I think the decision to admit them to the B1G was a good one - based on concessions alone!!
Anybody else think the Tough Guy Writer with an Attitude schtick being done regularly on 11warriors is wearing thin? It can be funny ... and it can get very old (quickly).
I'm with Arsenal. They have a CANNON as their logo (because they used to be the company team for a cannon maker) and their nickname is "The Gunners." What else is there?
Look at Johnny Manziel for the Aggies. He came out of nowhere and was incredible (yes, he's a jerk, etc. off the field - and sometimes on it - but there's no doubt he had mad skills in cfb). You don't know what is sitting on the bench lots of times. JTB was one of the top ranked QBs in the land till he hurt his knee. It just makes everyone else play harder.
One of the other big programs WILL have a big injury at some point in the season too. I'll take ours now when we have two weeks to prep JTB for the first opponent and several weeks before B1G play starts.
Don't be surprised if this is Troy Smith and Justin Zwick all over again...
In my neck of the woods there was this little short guy who Sumlin didn't even think would be his starter ... Johnny Football worked out pretty well for them (on the field - I get the off the field issues).
My point is we don't know what we've got in JT ... but we will now. Maybe something incredible! Get well Braxton and let's go JT!
Those who live in Ohio need to remember that Buck fans outside of the state would love to see the Buckeyes without a long drive/flight. The thought of them showing up here in Jerry World (I live in DFW area) makes me positively giddy. Come on to Texas Urban!!!!
We did go ballistic when it was Wisky...
We were all quick to jump on Bucky Badger when their band had similar problems. If Bucky was so wrong then what do we say when it's in our backyard?
There's plenty of judge and jury types here who are ready to excuse what happened but does anyone really think they terminated an enormously popular band director without cause?
If they axed him my guess is that there were serious problems and he had to go. It does make a real statement for the next director.
well, it's not popular but I'm a Duke fan. love coach K.
and I envy all those National Title trophies he holds... I'm sure Thad wishes he had coach K's problems!
I wonder how much of these upsets have to do with mid-major schools that play together for four years vs a team of one and dones. Duke has way more NBA talent on the floor than Mercer but in a tough game where you have to keep persevering and keep playing hard the team that has been there and hangs together (sometimes) triumphs.
Maybe UK will lose too (a team I love to hate). Calipari - what a loser.
Let's relive some very good memories....
"A COLD BLOODED THREE!"
We are now having a serious discussion about what song plays during a montage of tourney clips. Charles Barkley hasn't even started his "analysis" ... it's going to be a long off season, isn't it?
This was an angry Skull Session!
where is the upvote one million times button when you need it? TR is one of our top Presidents ever, and as a bonus, saved football. A real gamer who gave 110% and was very well spoken.
Please stop with the logica and common sense!
I don't have a tat so don't really know but wouldn't something like that cost a chunk of change? Unbelievable.
I am okay with almost anything in the jersey department (esp if we could get some grey back on the sleeves so we don't look like we borrowed jerseys from Wisky) if we would just LEAVE THE HELMET ALONE. We have the greatest, most recognizable, most amazing helmet in all of college fb. Then we roll out in the biggest game of the year in a helmet that is ... just not as cool as what we wear all the time. LEAVE THE HELMET ALONE. BRING BACK GREY. NEVER WEAR BLACK.
It's not complicated.
where is the upvote "eleventy bazillion" for this post? that is pure genius.
sadly when you turn 40 you learn what Brady means by "I can't see." LASIK did away with glasses for years (oh the joy) and now I'm that guy constantly looking for my reading glasses.
