Spot on BCarp, and please stop saying he showed "Honor and Courage" by coming out. As a USMC veteran, the Marine Corps values are Honor, Courage and Commitment. Announcing your sexual orientation does not equate.
It's like Christmas in Feb.
Bryant won't be fully healed by then. If he is healed, he's probably not in the shape he needs to be. Hopefully he will be ready for the pro day.
Johnny who pissed in your cream of wheat this morning? Are you mad about something? Did your favorite show get cancelled? Are you tired of Sheldon playing hard to get with Amy Farrah Fowler? Still upset about the Red Wedding? Can't wait for the Walking Dead to come back on?
That was an intense rant!
Hmm, not sure we should wear "Dominance" uni's!
I don't get why the departure of Vrabel would impact Jones decision to stay or go. He wasn't going to be his position coach. I understand you establish a relationship with a recruiter but there are many more great coaches and even players you could establish a rapport with.
After reading all of the comments, I just have 1 question: Who is forcing these kids to play sports? Last time I checked, they can choose to do what they want.
That MSU recruit who got a scholarship offer and decided to become a rapper. Now, based on his YouTube video, I wondered if he made the right decision, but he made the decision and that is his right.
People choose to join the military knowing there is the potential they could go to war, people choose to bungee jump knowing the danger, and people choose to play a violent sport in which they could get seriously injured. They also know that after high school they can either go to college and not be paid or go to Canada and get paid and enter the draft in 3 years. They know this when they sign up!
I was thinking the same thing Harleymanjax. There are what, 119 D1 programs?
I don't usually downvote but I will admit I did this one. My reasons:
The title is "Possible Lies and Soap Opera-like Dialogue", what are the possible lies? The soap opera-like dialogue is a dialogue that was made up.
What is wrong with Meyer saying he has alot of respect for Fickell? Maybe it's because he sympathizes with what went down with Fickell over the last few years and he's coming to his coaches aid.
I think as fans, we tend to think our beloved sports programs owe us an explanation of the moves they make. They don't! Just because he didn't hire the people we really wanted and we may be bummed that we didn't get "the guy", we really shouldn't lose any sleep.
I've said it before and I will say it again, this is pure entertainment. If OSU loses, I will still have to go to work the next day, if they win, I still have bills to pay.
the what? yutes? did you say yutes Mr Gambini?
Yeah and no self-respecting Southerner uses instant grits!
Lol, raise your hand if you started reading the article and asked "why is Barrett's dad in the Buckeye locker". I never knew JT was John Thomas! I'm doing pushups.
I don't know how I feel about the Johnson hire. Not saying it wasn't bad or anything, I just don't know. With the exception of maybe 4 or 5 home games, I've gone to every Buckeye home game over the last few years. The 1 thing you would always see is right before the team runs out, Vrabel would race the assistants (mainly grad assistants) to the sideline and he always won. He was young and competitive and could match talent with the youngsters.
This summer my nephew came up from Texas to participate in an OSU day camp. He plays DE so guess who was right there in the mix, yep, Vrabel. He was getting down and showing proper technique, hitting the pads and running through drills. He's still young and agile so he was able to do that.
I guess I would favor a younger coach because we all know the landscape of football offenses and defenses have changed. Older coaches have habits and may be stuck in their ways and can be resistant to change.
I have faith in Meyer so clearly he believes in Johnson so I support the decision.
Joey Bosa was my pick as will. For the simple fact that after the Clemson game he tweeted that he was sorry and he really tried. We all knew he tried because he came back out and made plays. That's heart and that is a leadership quality.
I agree. The more I hear about these other coaches getting jobs and nothing coming out of Columbus makes me nervous about missing out on some of these guys.
His comments are left to interpretation:
Either he wanted to be aggressive and wasn't able to or he wanted to play zone all the time, it didn't work out and now he want's to change.
I don't think he will ever come out and say exactly what went on behind the scenes.
Potential coordiantors for his staff are editing their resume's and assessing their wives looks!
If Saban hires Kiffin then he's settling. I'm sure there are lines forming for that position.
I don't know if you guys knew but Dick Lebeau's nephew is an 11W member and used to post quite frequently. I worked with him for over 13 years and I would talk to him about Dick. Dick has stated when he's done in Pittsburgh, he's retiring. He's over 70.
I think these rankings are crap. I love how they try and diminish what the Buckeyes achieved in defeating Miami. They had 5 1st round draft pics playing.
I'm glad this was written as I have had this conversation over and over again. I like Herman but I think he outsmarts himself. He is a genius and what is the biggest enemy of a genius? Himself/herself!
I think he got into situations where deep down he knew all he had to do was run Hyde but he 2nd guessed it thinking, it can't be that easy!
When we played Clemson and we ran a hurry up with Hyde, play after play and got great yardage on each run. What did we do on 3rd down? Not give it to Hyde and it hurt!
That's easy, Johnny Utah because he blows out his knee and then we hear the sweet sounds of Kenny G!
Because I can and I did! He's a comedian and he's funny! If he roots for a bottom feeding team, so be it!
In the words of Kevin Hart, "you gon learn today!"
