Winfield has my vote as well. He could lay the wood and I can't recall the last time I ever saw him miss a tackle.
While I would like to think Rey is Luke's daughter, I have a feeling she is not (i.e., cinematic/artistic misdirection, if you will). However, taking a step back, I do believe 1) Rey was trained by Luke (albeit, some preliminary training or introduction to the Force) and 2) Kylo Ren is familiar with Rey given his peculiar reaction to learning a girl helped Finn and BB-8 escape Jakku.
Here's my (crazy) theory: I think Kylo Ren and Rey were friends (i.e., different ages/classes) at Luke's Academy. Kylo probably studied/tutored/liked Rey to some degree and recognized her abilities as a fellow student and potential at that time as well ("She's just beginning to test her powers"; "The longer she's free, the more dangerous she becomes"). However, Kylo becomes seduced by Snoke and ultimately goes crazy town and slaughters the other Jedi hopefuls at Luke's Academy. However, Kylo has not fully turned at this point and in a moment of weakness (i.e., Kylo is still torn with dark/light side) wants to spare Rey. Thus, Kylo dumps Rey on Jakku (i.e., possibly scared that Snoke would discover he saved a young Jedi padawan). Further, before he leaves her, Kylo gives her items of comfort (e.g., X-wing pilot doll seen in her hideout and and X-wing fighter helmet seen on her head...although it could have easily been found via scavenging; to be fair it looked kind of rough if I recalled) that belonged to her *X-wing fighter parent*. Notably, Rey's parent could still be Luke at this point...but I am betting Abrams went for misdirection here. So who is Rey's parent, if not Luke? I am heaving up a Hail Mary and surmising that it is Wedge Antilles. Total (and possibly way off) speculation at this point, I just wanted to share my theory with my fellow 11W. GO BUCKEYES!
PS-Another reason why I think that is Kylo took off his mask for Rey is because he wanted to see if there was any recognition on her part. I always thought the "big reveal/unmasking" should have been during the Han Solo confrontation. However, this would justify the decision to do it at this point in the film.
Truth. Karl Malone is the worst.
Seriously. Let's just settle this and schedule the mighty SEC Razorbacks. Truth, I will actually pay money to travel to Arkansas to witness that pig slaughter.
Hyde set that up perfectly.
Well, at least BamaMike got some quality laughs and entertainment for a few hours. Wasn't a total waste.
The dream is over.
Hahahaha. That's rich.
It's a moot point. No way this Auburn team goes undefeated through its SEC schedule. Bama, LSU, TAMU, and Georgia at the very least will eat their lunch.
I'll be honest, I thought a Malzahn and a Muschamp coached team could easily handle an FCS team. Well, seems that I don't know everything about football. Auburn sure doesn't either.
Oh wow. This is amazing. I am only sad because this is legitimately 'worse' than Michigan's loss to App. State (and I don't want people to forget that one).
I was a huge Bo Jackson fan as a kid. Still am I guess. Not saying who is the 'better' athlete, but I've seen enough now to know that Braxton is in the conversation (at least regarding football). Unreal skillset of acceleration and dexterity. Very special young man.
Without a doubt, Zeke is the best collegiate blocking running back I've seen in a long time (ever?). There may have been others, but none that have stood out to me personally. Lethal combination of execution and willingness/effort. Because NFL teams place a premium on talented RBs that can also effectively pass protect, he will be starting day 1 for at least this reason.
53. Lord, I hope not.
What do you mean...'Flash Gordon approaching'?!?
Concise breakdown of the VT bear defense. Excellent presentation as well. A sincere thanks to you, sir.
No need to get worked up over a video, guys. I've got a feeling that the players and coaches remember last year's game *quite well* on their own account. Hokie hype video=drop in the ocean to the players (if they even watch it). If the Buckeyes play with the same intensity/execution as they did in their last 3 games, there is nothing VT can do to change the overall outcome of Monday's game. That being said, VT is a quality opponent and is more than capable of taking the game if OSU comes out flat and fails to execute (which I just don't see happening if only because of last year's contest).
Pistol whipping joke aside, this is one of the funnier things I have read all week and mirrors my attitude to a T. +1 to you sir for the actual laugh out loud moment.
Agree completely. There is a hidden/inside joke for the parents in almost every skit.
I believe I saw this on a T-shirt once...and it is quite appropriate here.
My sincerest condolences, OP.
That. is. awesome.
When Zeke broke through the line, I literally sucked in my breath and held it for the the entire 85 yard run. I then looked at the score...looked at the time remaining...and went crazy because I knew King Bama just got curb-stomped.
Make no mistake...Zeke's run vs. that Bama/SEC defense (symbolically) ushered in a new era for Ohio State.
But...but...Jerry Rice was fast as hell in Tecmo Bowl!
(Albeit not Bo Jackson fast in Tecmo Bowl).
