Stay the course buckeye in Pitt. I too went to otterbein back in 91 to further my football career. Couldn't let go of the game I loved. Dropped out after 2 years, got a job to pay off loans, never went back. Huge osu fan, should have went there. Bugs me to this day i didn't go to the school I love. No matter what, do it!

Awesome news Niblick. Can you let us first timers know when that time comes? I have bought secondary market in the past, this sounds a little better.

Imagine all the whining if they played back in the 80s and early 90s. Would they toughen up like Jordan and Scotty did or just whine and complain like babies? I know complaining is rampid throughout the league, but this Warriors team takes it to a whole new level. Props to Buckeye Realist for having the same comment in earlier than me.

It sounds as though you have a lot emotion in your post, so I'll only comment on a few. If you feel the zoo made a poor decision, what would be a good decision in your mind? You also state that you would "much rather this kid go down for his poor decision than a gorillas go down". Do you really believe a 4 year old kid should go down for his decision? You don't have kids, I get it. Would you feel the same in this situation if it was one if your family members, say a young neice, nephew, or younger cousin if you have any?

It is unfortunate that many of these player sign with dreams and aspirations to only find out that playing time on the field is extremely limited.  Urban does a very good job of still taking care of his players regardless of their issue;  injuries, family problems, personal trouble.  Meyer has another similarity to coach Tressel besides beating TTUNs ass:  going to bat for his players no matter what the circumstance.

RIP Chico.  IF CTE was involved, then this one hits a lot closer to home.  I will echo a comment above about rugby style tackling.  More and more teams should look into that style, pro, college, high school, especially biddy league.  I know my son's 1-2 grade coaches put a strong emphasis on proper tackling form (without the helmet). 

May the Lord grant you rest  Chico.

There was a coach who threw a yard marker here once that was a pretty successful guy.

You're right Defiance, it is impossible to speculate what one player would do on another team. It's really hard for me to believe Sanders wouldn't have had more yards running behind a line that blocked so well that he doesn't get touched until he is 7 yards downfield, as opposed to running for his life, juking and dodging defenders and covering 50 yards of ground to eke out a 2 yard gain. Sanders also retired because his desire to not play the game was greater than his desire to play the game, that is a quote from him. Pretty simple, but people always think it's something else. They were both 2 of the greatest backs of all time.

I feel for Tunsil too, it appears he is easily influenced (more so than your average young man). If he had come to OSU, I feel he wouldn't have had this mess. Urban would have surrounded him with the right people and prepared him for life first as a man, then as a player. The difference between our program and Old Miss is staggering and I could not be happier. Does anyone else love the fact that Herman had a player drafted last night and TTUN didn't? I wonder how they'll spin the "who has it better than us" statement this time.

The Oregon defender in the NC game when Marshall picked the ball off his back with one hand would disagree with you on the ok hands part. This years TTUN game, he also had a spectacular td catch. I really like his game. He doesn't dance around on punt returns, he makes one step and gets upfield quickly. He made some really clutch receptions the past 2 years. He has game speed, not fast time 40 speed, very similar to Jerry Rice (not comparing him to JR). He was making time on Elliott during his historic Bama run. He also is a hard, tough runner after the catch. He was hurt by 2 things at OSU, multiple weapons and a new offensive coordinator. I am pulling hard for him.
