There's a lot of good footballers in the UK. I'd go there
Love the new icon, my Buckeye friend. But I must admit I have an image of you in my mind as a Fred Sanfordesque fellow!
You had me! Raging inside until I read the last line. Touché, 11W !
@Seattle & Cooper - Bless you for this link/article, my soccer loving Buckeye friends!
Gonna be a hard fought game. If Bolivia gets ahead, they better not let Argentina come charging from behind!
Argentina charging from behind is always an ugly thing!
That's a national championship winning team right there. The other team would see those powerful mustaches and just simply lose the will to compete.
Especially if you are an OSU basketball team.
Which, based on the after-Rutgers comments from Matta and his starters, sounds like exactly what this team needs right now.
Totally agree, Andy. I also would dearly love to see the OSU basketball team go through a Mickey Marotti boot-camp in the off-season.
He's a class act with a great head on his shoulders. He'll do just fine this year.
I can think of more useful & entertaining things to do while going blind.
My condolences to Jason, Chris, Ramzy, DJ, all of the 11W crew and especially to his wife. I believe I met Corey at the fund raiser in the Short North years ago (I think it was that one) & had the nicest conversation with him about the origins of 11W. What a genuine, caring, happy guy. This is so sad. I will be giving the money I had been considering putting towards the Woody Hayes statue to Zade's fund this year. Woody next year. Rest In Peace, Corey.
Personally, I don't feel there is anything wrong with a coach getting
inon a players' ass
“They just kept going and going and going and going,” Matta added. “I didn’t think we were as aggressive defensively as we needed to be.”
Poor coaching, poor defense. The players don't respect Matta (he is unable to motivate them) and they have little pride in their team, their school, or their play.
At this point, I was actually hoping for the basketball season equivalent of the thrashing we got from Clemson. I think that not making the NCAA, OR the NIT, losing the 1st game of the B1G tournament, having a losing B1G record, and Matta not getting his 20 wins per season is the ONLY thing that is going to make Gene Smith move on from Thad, or if he get's another year, make Thad make the changes he needs to overhaul the program, a la Urban Meyer after the Clemson game.
I believe that this game was the perfect summation of the season. And that we have seen the last game Thad Matta coaches at OSU. I certainly have mixed feelings about that.
Side topic for discussion: Who's the OSU coach going to Las Vegas?
Kerry Coombs. Who else would be going to the City That Never Sleeps?

I'm with Crumb, DJ. I remember that game in 1986. I hope that Creepy Dude Harbaugh goes winless the rest of his coaching career.
I'd be glad to castrate the scumbag. And I'm good at it.
My father was the Superintendent of the State of Ohio Parole Authority. He kept track of all the parolees who had been released by the Parole Board. There was 2 things in this world he hated above all else. The Parole Board, and the released sex offenders. They ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS had the highest rate of recidivism & the Parole Board & Parole Authority usually only knew of 10% of their crimes on average.
I will be contributing to Reagan's scholarship fund. May she rest in peace.
If he's guilty - fuck him. Fuck him to hell & back.
@MichiBuck12 - Dogs are better people than the people who did this to that poor girl. And dogs should be euthanized humanely. The perpetrator(s) deserve to die painfully.
