Ton of respect for this young man. He's got three stars ahead of him, another four highly regarded guys coming in behind him, and he keeps grinding.

There's a strong tendency toward censorship in the name of "safe spaces" on college campuses, and (as much as I hate to compliment the guy), Harbaugh's right to oppose this. The whole point of college is higher learning, and learning about a world that doesn't exist (sorry, there's going to be something that offends you out in the real world, you need to learn to deal with it) does not serve that goal, especially when the tendency is to shut down all debate. Really unfortunately, I saw the same tendencies when I graduated from OSU five years ago, and this is not strictly a That State Up North problem.

With all that said, something we can all agree on, it'll be fun to watch these students who have no idea how to deal with things adverse to their worldview be forced to accept that Urban Frank Meyer is the best coach in the B1G as he rubs Harbaugh's face in the big * at midfield in Ann Arbor in 7 months and 19 days.

I typically let mine marinate overnight. Really gets them tender and keeps them juicy. When they're on the grill, I typically shoot for a nice sear first, then let them cook low for as long as it takes. And I just started doing this last summer. It takes some getting used to, but it's relatively easy to pick up once you get a feel for it.

I can help you with that. Use create a player, 6'5, 280 lbs, every rating at 99, unless they have one for mercy, which would of course be 0.

Otto Graham, 10 years, 10 championship games. No one has done it before or since.

Seriously, the guy is the reason for the facemask. How does he not get more play in these debates?

Report: Browns ask Urban Meyer to set aside 9 Sunday afternoons in 2015 to give pregame speeches prior to any Browns game in the state of Ohio.

No worries. I think you're about right with the 3rd/4th neck of the woods.

McGee had played two years as a starter, but got hurt as a senior (shoulder). Jerrod Johnson took over before eventually giving way to his top receiver Ryan Tannehill a couple years later.

I was one of those mocking him high after his sophomore year. He was exposed as a junior actually. He had the tools to be Roethlisberger like if he improved his accuracy, but never did. That's where Jones so far has been different. He's played two very good defenses, has learned on the job, and thrown accurate balls to all levels (still has some touch to learn on short balls). He's already shown more than Thomas did in the year He was picked in the fourth round, and has a lot of upside. Teams will love that in the second or third round.
Comment 03 Jan 2015
This is absolutely not true. Logan Thomas made an NFL roster this season as a fourth round pick, and Cardale is already better than Thomas will ever be.
Comment 03 Jan 2015
You are correct sir. If he's making this decision, it's on gut feeling and whatever the staff is able to find out through feelers.
Comment 03 Jan 2015
And you propose to hold a championship game out of this structure (let alone scheduling and the two three team divisions) exactly?
Comment 01 Jan 2015
Ohio State has an SEC caliber defense, which apparently now means we're giving up 49 tomorrow. But seriously, the gap has narrowed. The Pac 12 is now a close second in conference strength.
Comment 06 Dec 2014
He's solid, and it can be a great pairing if there's actual drama in the game.
