Wow. We finally get the the reason behind Vodka Sam getting so drunk, she took too many of this gals classes. We now have, as Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story.
This used to bother me when Tressel never won it, but I have found that it is more of a compliment than anything else. The league is basically saying, yeah we know the Bucks are going to be great every year, save for the anamoly of 2011. It stinks that Tressel and Meyer have never won it, but I'm sure both would be much happier with Big 10 and national titles; as would I.
Meyer is doing these young men a great service in allowing them to visit other schools. He is basically saying to them, we are thrilled you are committed here, but until you sign your LOI, make sure it is in your absolute best interest to play for OSU. As we saw this past basketball season, we need players that WANT to be Bucks.
Agreed zerostar. I've been a fan of the big Leech ever since that Craig James son incident.
That's the blind leading the blind. Oh wait, Harbaugh is their leader. All makes sense now.
Gotcha GTH. I always looked at that statement as a mild put down to the coach taking over a program.
I hear you GTH, but I always viewed it as look at what Tressel could do the same players that Cooper failed with. Plus Tressel had some major freshmen contributions that year.
I know for a fact that a local high school near Newark illegally recruits football players. My sister had a job working with the head coach at a company where he did nothing and earned 6 figures. They even offered jobs for parents of kids who were considered high priority. It was an insurance company. I remember really respecting a kid who turned them down my senior year. He just had a 2000 yard junior season as a rb. They desperately wanted that kid. This was a small division 5 school, so they could have great football and baseball teams while controlling enrollment to stay small and compete for state titles every year. I am in favor of separate public and parochial school athletic divisions, even though public schools also do it to a lesser extent.
I remember that very well. He had an announcement ceremony to say hey wasn't announcing yet.
Praying for him, the doctors, and your whole family. If you need a place to vent or share, we're here for you bud.
Brian Bosworth. First tackle of every collegiate game. Imagine that coming through your helmet earhole!
Haven't heard of him. Wasn't there a guy a while back who claimed a bunch of offers from big time schools, only to find out he was making it up? Can't remember his name.
Probably not they best pic to show. Tatum played hard, but that was an illegal hit that paralyzed a man.
Absolutely crazy. Prayers to all of the people affected by this senseless and cowardly act.
Just left work. What happened in France?
Reminds me of Mike Harts post game interview after the 06 game about how they were better than the Bucks. I'm sitting there thinking WTF? You just lost to them you dumbass!! Are we sure he didn't go to ttun?
The pride of Clyde. The best DTs are the ones who require a double team every play. He freed up Wilhelm for an all American season.
Sounds like those parents will have no problem getting used to leaving the toilet bowl in the 3rd quarter during the Game. That ariel shot from the game last year was my favorite moment. Michigan class all the way.
Ha, those are my 2 also. Still have bad memories whenever I hear 313, no matter what the source. That game was the very definition of going through the motions. F#*k Howard. I've said it before, I'll say it again: If I was there, I would have tackled him right there in the end zone and it would have most definitely been flagged for targeting. Ohio boys don't act like that. No wonder he went to that cesspool.
I like where your head's at.
I'll take the senator's record against Michigan and big ten titles any day. Plus despite the mistake that ended his coaching career, he brought honor and pride back to the osu team. Obviously many of us would prefer Meyer, but he is a once in a lifetime coach. It is unfair to compare him to one of the top 5 college coaches of all time.
Doesn't what's his name play for Cocoa Beach?
This ride on the top is killer. During the middle of the Copper years, I would have choked someone out who said this would be in Ohio State's future for messing with me. The suffering sure makes this time sweeter.
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.
