Same emotions as most above. Hard to overcome the USWNT after their WC win, but as far as coming together through adversity, I don't think there's been a better "team" short of storybooks.
This is why I love the CBJ: they seem like genuine people with interests in their team's town.
I love this picture, especially with (who I think looks like) John Cooper to the left of the photo (right of the two coaches).
Also, I get having music during rehearsal, but I'm at a loss when it comes to playing Lion King...anyone have any reasoning?
One big difference I've noticed in our secondary this year is the improved timing and disruption of receivers' catches. The tackling has had bad moments, but has also improved.
Also, I just finished OSU's "Coaching Football" class this past semester and having listened to Ash discuss his philosophy of keeping receivers in front and inside of his DB's, it gives me a little more confidence in the defense we had to endure last year.
Headed there with TBDBITL to end a 4-year stint in the drumline! Sorry I can't help out any seat-searchers :-/
He has a great, slightly dated breakdown of Oregon's Zone Read plays too. Glad someone else likes this guy's material!
No, that moment came in his bus bathroom on the Indiana-Ohio Border. Papa's in the house.
I'm going to be honest, I skipped the last 260 comments above, so if someone already said this, feel free to chime in and loop it to previous comments.
That being said, C.J. Barnett. Holy Cow. I respect any athlete that could play better than I could, but he had (at least) two massive failures at his position last night that both cost TD's against us. Maybe it's just a mark of the entire collapse in secondary that's been foreshadowing this kind of result, and maybe I just happened to see only his failures from my seat in Lucas Oil, but if we had the second-stringer to sub him out last night, I would have at least entertained the idea. On the flip-side, without Christian Bryant in the secondary, from what I've read, it seems as though we just wouldn't have had depth to sub out Barnett.
So, did we have the depth to sub Barnett, and if so, why didn't we?
Instead, Guiton will walk to midfield in Ohio Stadium as a captain for the Ohio State Buckeyes. The journey from 2009 to now is such an improbable story that written in script form, it would be too unfathomable even for Hollywood.
Written in script form...hehe...
Don't worry, ESPN will make a bigger deal about all of this for as long as they can. But hey, it's over!
I just want some football and a ramp to march down already. Go Bucks.
Getting the comfortably seated 75% of the Shoe to cheer is a problem in general...but I agree. They better all cheer (me included) with one heck of a vindication to walk out of this season 14-0 after all this.
F*** the press. Including and especially ESPN. That's all.
Oh, and Bucks. Bucks, Bucks, Bucks.
I love how the BTN site that ranked the uniforms talked about our uniforms looking good "when not being messed with by Nike..." and failed to recognize all the POS uniforms adidas has dressed scUM in (although let's be real what scUM uni isn't a POS)
As a current member (and attendee of the Golf Outing yesterday), I'm extremely glad to see in some sort of writing that preservation of Skull Session is at the forefront of the directors' minds. Awesome article!
What's going on with the clouds in the EA depiction of Script Ohio?
Go Irish, and Go Bucks! Especially as a good friend of Coach Boarman, that's awesome!
42-21, Go Bucks.
