Born on the banks (not literally) of the Mississippi River in Onalaska, WI (LaCrosse) in 1964. Raised on the banks of the Olentangy since 1968. Can almost hear Keith Jackson saying that last part in a way that only he can.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Buster Douglas knock out Mike Tyson on a giant rear projection tv in my parents house. Oh, and a little thing called the 2002 National Championship. That was stressful as hell, but worth the suffering.

Here's another gem:  Rutgers Offensive Tackle Keith Lumpkin:

"It's a dream to play in that stadium. Some people might find it nerve-wracking or scary.  It's just 100,000 people about to see me kick their teams butt, so that's how I see it."

Umm, what?  There was a timeout on the floor and Evan essentially rolls the ball in the direction of the official as everyone walks off the floor. It bounces a bit and bumps the ref in the calf. He turns and gives Evan the heave-ho. Absurd. My guess, he wanted to see who it was first and that Evan's temper is well known in the league. Anyone else and the ref picks up the ball like nothing happened. Evan may have been working the refs before this, but still. Ridiculous.

Thanks for the commentary M Man. Nice to have your objective opinions regarding real events without being subjected to sarcastic banter and name calling. In fact all 11W comments so far have been rather objective. Not a troll among us...but the day is young (ie..wait for it!).

Burrow seems to fit the mold of a Meyer/Herman quarterback, and falls very much in line with how JT is playing right now. They are smart kids who play within the offense and take what defenses give them. They both run when it's available, focus on completions rather than forcing the ball and commit very few turnovers. Both are also very good leaders, but neither are highly vocal kids. I see Haskins also fitting this mold, but Gibson to me is more of a project. From what I've read lately however in interviews with his coach, Torrance is changing the way he plays based on the advice he's been given from Meyer and Herman. The future at QB does look very bright.
