Said Antoine Winfield.
I believe that is Willis McGhee.
I would respect that president so much more if he just came out and said we're cancelling to get ready for the bucks. (not that it would make a difference).
Look at that MSU safety in that play. He puts 10 yards on the guy from the 40 yard line to the end zone. I remember the guy saying he was not 100% healthy. Don't think that would have mattered bud.
When a man of Urbans strength says something is eating at him, there is room for concern. Lost in this QB battle is his health. The main problem at Florida was not so much in gettimg to the top, but staying there. I think this will the hardest test to date for him at OSU. The pursuit of perfection overwhelmed him and he needed a break. It's tough on someone to disappoint the players you love (and their families) who have done so much for the program.
Love the way Mack catches the ball away from his body. He doesn't let it come into him, ala Ryan Hamby. To me, he is a mix of Thomas and Smith. Good vertical stretch down the field mixed with a good dose of high pointing balls.
"Now jerk that pistol and get to work. You gonna do anything except stand there and bleed?"
Agreed JB. Never cared for high school recruiting and enrollment control to stay in a smaller division. NC tried to get a Watkins Memorial RB to "transfer" my senior year and he turned them down. Kind of refreshing when a kid wants to play for his own school.
Saban seems like the old guy who is watching the game pass him by. He makes excuses, wants to slow down the pace of the game for "player safety", and is unwilling to adapt and change with the game. This latest complaint about the NFL evaluations is another example of an unwillingness to look in the mirror and accept responsibility for the loss. Even if all 22 starters were predicted to go in the 1st round, he still must get them ready to play. That is his job.
Love Brugler's thoughts about potential Buckeye draft selections, but there is no way in hell Elliott needs to be more refined as a blocker. I can't remember seeing a collegiate back block as well as he does.
I saw the rep where Cooper got destroyed from a different angle. He absolutely tripped over his own feet.
I hear ya, but I remember a fellow named Rice who ran a 4.6.
And the fact he went to UM.
I thought Bauserman was great. I have 3 official OSU game balls because of him, in one game alone.
Ahh, the spoils of beating Florida at home.
Man I hope Winfield jr. gets an offer. If he is anywhere close to his dad on the field, I'm in. Calling for the boys of Orlando Pace. Come on down.
"I'm your Huckleberry."
That is a great watch. In it he tells his dad he was picking TTUN, and his dad says the hell you are, you're going down I 71 to Columbus. Great behind the scenes show.
I hear you regarding the hat, but here's how I look at it: in today's age of coaches promising their current school they'll stay through the bowl game only to leave within days, Herman is a nice change of pace. Brian Kelly pulled this crap at UC and I lost a ton of respect for him.
Hamilton is 5' 9" and 160 lbs. He could be the next Antoine Winfield. I'd be cool with that.
Never discount the family tug on Joey staying when Nick commits. It was a different situation, but Payton Manning said he would have gone to Ole Miss if Cooper hadn't gotten hurt.
Sadly, this lack of a conference title game mostly stems from the greed of Texas allowing ESPN to set up the Longhorn network, thereby leaving out the rest of the conference. Nebraska and Missouri search for more lucrative packages in other conferences and the Big 12 pays by not having enough teams for a title game. The B1G knows that revenue sharing keeps everybody happy.
As other have noted above, there is much more to the player than physical talent. IMO, Jordan has no peer when it comes to heart, determination and a desire to win. I saw an article not long ago that said that Jordan was actually an "ugly" person because of his competitive nature.
Absolutely agree on the mental part with Jordan, and it wasn't just his opponents. Bill Cartwright said that Jordan used to ride him so hard in practice, that Bill threatened to have his legs broken if he didn't let up. Desire to win was unmatched.
I agree about Collier and his Spring game performance, but Barrett and Jones weren't particularly impressive either last year.
