My wife would beg to differ....
We may have witnessed the greatest Troll to walk the interwebs. Is it sad that I'm happy to have gone on the ride? This is hilarious!
I couldn't even think of one good one! I went with a non creative city buckeye name..... Or do I not really reside in Chicago???
Boy, you think you can trust someone on an Internet message board...
Jason, I have to disagree to an extent, I'm not sure she has been around Big Ten football long enough to understand the hatred and competitive nature of some of the rivalries outside of Michigan. With that being said maybe I haven't been around SEC long enough to realize its an over the top craziness conference right down to the Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Mississippi St's. I think the football and fan bases of the top 5-6 programs of each conference are closer to being equal and the bottom feeders of both conferences are equal. I think their are some huge rivalries between B1G schools not involving OSU. MSU/UM comes to mind as well as anything involving PSU and Wisky. Add OSU and those are 5 teams that would match any intensity level from fans, players, coaches of the SEC.
I also wonder if her view of the SEC is based more off of Urbans emotional state at the time. He has found balance in his life at OSU and she may perceive that as not as "cut throat" as the SEC because then Urban was stressing out over everything. I think 10 yrs ago, Meyer, coaching in the B1G or SEC, would have stressed himself into heart problems.
I agree, no one needs her to be a "straight shooter" and insulting one of the, if not the biggest fan bases in the country. Certainly cutting off the hand that feeds her. More comments like that and these non-passionate fans will stop caring about her in Columbus. Just ask Herbie...
I hope the comment just came out wrong and it was meant to sound differently but I'm with you. I get tired of her making these types of comments as well. Keep football out of it and just tell us you like the warm weather of Florida.
If I'm reading what Andy wrote correctly, He is not stating someone in the School of Music was involved in the firing. I believe he's stating (I don't want to speak for him) that this scandal may open the door for the School of Music to have power over the marching band. Which in turn could change the marching band as we currently know it.
Thanks on the clarification. I certainly realized he wasn't fired for cursing or yelling but didn't look close enough at the report to realize he had made that statement. This is damning evidence to his credibility during the investigation for sure and certainly didn't help his cause. I was taking the conversation as face value and these types of conversations go on quite a bit in the world.
Small potatoes in my opinion. These conversations happen all the time. This should have nothing to do with the firing or the 23 page report.
I was a freshman on campus and was off to my history lecture. I'm a bit of a bigger guy myself 6' 2", 220lbs. I was trying to find a seat that would give me a little space. The Lecture was crowded but I found a few empty seats and sat down. As I was bent over getting a pen and notebook out of my bag I felt someone sit down next to me. He crowded me, I was very upset and as I bent back up in my seat to turn and ask this guy for space (wanting to yell at him). I turned and I as I was just about to open my mouth and give this guy the business, I realized it was Andy Katzenmoyer!! What was suppose to be a stern talking to came out as a "Hows it going?" I turned back and took my notes the rest of the class. He was constantly shifting and adjusting in his seat which was constantly making me rub shoulders with him and have to readjust. I sat there with a smile on my face for 45 minutes! Couldn't wait to get back to the dorms and tell my buddies! He sat next to me for the entire quarter and I never once complained about needing my space! A side note- He was a very nice guy, didn't take many notes though...
I'm making an announcement next Tuesday to put out my Top 16 schools in no particular order but I can safely say OSU is on that list.
Remember that in late Fall, 3:30 games need lighting by the 4th quarter.
Some would argue the same about a wedding.
I would sweat-stain the hell out of that Tux before I would ruin a Saturday in the fall!!!
It is beyond me how people schedule these dates and call themselves football fans. Ramzy hit it on the head. When you say "and everyone loved it" they are lying to you. Everyone has their own CF Saturday rituals and none of them want that messed up. The things I have skipped over the years because it was a weekend in the fall would make you think I'm the worst person in the world. Maybe I am but I did enjoy watching 12 hrs of football all day without having to pretend I was somewhere I wanted to be!
Bovada online is the best place I've found for online sports betting. Have bet there the past three seasons and have had no issues. It's a very secure site and has a quality reputation. Many other sites tend to come and go which obviously can be dangerous with your money on it. It's very simple to use, navigate, etc..
I agree with gluefingers, Bovada doesn't offer as many line bets or prop bets as other sites but Im willing to give on some of those to be on site I trust. I'm a parlay junkie as well and the site meets my needs very well.
+WARNING+ it is very easy to use and that can be a bad thing at times! ;)
National Signing day is a long way away. If we lose out on Harris and as the season progresses don't be surprised to see Scott back in the mix. As Meyer stated, "a verbal just means you're in their top 3" Lots of time left for a potential flip, if things don't work out with Harris.
Was going to post the same thing! One of, if not, my favourite buckeyes of all time! We both set foot on campus together.... his was a slightly bigger footprint then mine.
Agree completely. Recruits won't choose OSU because of James but James being around will help get kids on campus. Once here, the coaching staffs can sell OSU. James may be able to draw interest from recruits who might not be high on OSU. The key is just to get them on campus and who knows maybe they like what they see or didn't expect OSU to be like this. I think James could provide that little something extra to get kids to look at the state of Ohio.
Could it have been written before the draft? My guess is with those thoughts and the heartfelt sentiments towards NE Ohio, he was coming home regardless of the seasons outcome.
Does anyone else want to cry right now?
Heard it as well. I was wondering at the time of the letter if this would come back to bite him. Many Cleveland fans were over joyed and supported Gilbert's rants because it was at the time "what they felt." Look at it now, Gilbert has kept the letter up on a website for 4 yrs, why??? Pride? Ego? Now its costing him a chance to potentially get the best player in the world back and with the teams moves, clearly someone he wants back. A great lesson can be had by all. When ever you feel wronged take a step back and think about your actions before doing them.
No doubt about it. The offenses success is all on Braxton's shoulders. He is a 4 year starter now with tons of experience as he goes so does the offense. He needs to stay healthy and in the game, if that means sliding or getting out of bounds then do it!
Exactly right! God knows I wouldn't want to be a role player on the Lakers with Kobe and Melo. You'd see the ball for two seconds off a rebound and that's about it.
