To me, it's a make or break year for Cam Burrows - lots of talent at the CB/S positions - I hope he is able to step up and take his game to the next level. He was one of the guys I was most excited about when he committed.
However, the talent behind him is strong - guys like E. Smith and M. Hooker at S looking to slide in behind incumbents Powell and Bell and M. Lattimore, G. Conley, D. Webb at the CB looking to take over other open corner spot and nickel.
Another guy who I think is in a make or break year is Chris Worley.
Boyce Avenue is really good if you've never heard of them - they have tons of really good covers. Give them a listen!
Play golf - problem is...I suck.
I don't know about the PSU students and their respective educations but simple math shows that Keith Olbermann = douche.
And the winner of the 2015 F.I.M. Award…….Bryant Harper
As long as I don't hear this dude b****in' and moanin' abut conference championships, head to head against TCWho, and SOS, I will consider next year's playoff a resounding success….
Whether or not Coach Harbaw can give me personal piccolo playing lessons
4. Oklahoma State
The suspense is killing me…recruiting is a hell of a drug.
Question for Birm: Will you reveal the name regardless of where said prospect ends up signing on NSD? Inquiring minds would like to know.
Thanks for all the awesome work on "The Hurry Up"!
I'm casting my vote for Larry Scott
Heuerman and Powell
Bucks give up 388 yards on Saturday (262 passing, 126 rushing). MSU wins a close one I think unfortunately. I'll go with 28-23 Sparty.
Don't think Wimbush is in - agree that he will go to PSU and do very well there. Think the staff will wait as long as it takes for Gibson and have a contingency plan in place. They've put lots of QB offers out, especially in the past week or two.
I hate the fact I have to wait a whole week to get my next True Detective fix - I didn't decide to start watching Breaking Bad until they were in the midst of season 4 so I binge watched the majority of that show on Netflix. That's the way to go - I also watched all of Lost that way, which ended up being another personal favorite, although entirely different.
The unique thing about True Detective is the format - so after this season it'll be an entirely new storyline with a new car for another 8 episodes. I feel bad for whomever has to follow in McConaughey's footsteps though. He is top-notch and Harrelson not too far behind either. The cool thing about this format is that it allows the show to go after big (cinema) name actors and actresses because the show only requires a 5-6 month commitment. Hopefully they will continue to attract some of the top names.
Had not seen anything re: a spoiler DJ. Care to share? Is there more to what we saw last night in this spoiler? That last scene….hair on my neck was raised up - very eerie.
Also looking forward to watching House of Cards soon. I almost started watching that right before TD but decided to wait. I'll probably catch that series after this.
^This is correct - O'Brien didn't think Wilson could juggle the two and be effective for the football team. So he took his talents to Wisky for a final season.
As an NC State alum, a Wilson who could spend only 1/2 his time on football would have been tons better than having to endure a full Glennon (trust me...I'm an NCSU alum). Many people around the area and program think this was the straw that broke the camel's back for Tom O'Brien - doesn't look good when you tell your starting (record-setting QB) to take a hike and he leads the team to a Rose Bowl, gets drafted by Seattle, wins the starting job, and kills it in his rookie year. Plus his best teams only could muster 8-4 type seasons.
Here's where the story comes full circle...I'm a Tampa Bay native and huge Bucs fan. As if I hadn't had enough of Glennon (statue in the pocket + resembles a giraffe) in the post-Wilson era, he then gets drafted by the Bucs. Gimme a break!
As a Raleigh native, let me assure that one thing they actually did get right was placement. Capital Blvd. is a main drag in the city and not too far from NCSU campus.
Now to Mr. Connery - you answered V - well...I tell you what my friend, V is a Roman Numeral, so despite your best efforts, you've answered the question correctly.
And you wagered...Suck it Trebek.
Those Jeopardy skits were so great!
I wish Wisconsin had gotten Mixon but great pickup for the Sooners. For the B1G reputation to improve, all of the teams in the conference need to start recruiting better. Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Penn State, etc. The conference improvement will help the Buckeyes become a better team as well.
It'll be quite interesting to see where he winds up playing at OSU - I think he prefers (and everyone assumes) he will play CB and that will probably be the case but he is electric with the ball in his hands. Think he will be encouraged to give WR a try.
Another great pickup for the Buckeyes today! Welcome Marshon!
Stud - good speed in coverage, physical tackler. A very welcome and needed addition to this defense. Glad he decided to be a Buckeye!
I am holding out hope that Tony Brown ends up being one of those awesome NSD/late in the recruiting cycle surprises Urban has shown a knack for landing, especially during his UF tenure. I've seen you say numerous times that there's no chance for Brown to Ohio State but until he commits to LSU, I'm going to think that just maybe he commits to OSU in the end. That would be crazy! Unrealistic...yes....impossible....no.
Urban the past two days = UN-BELIEVE-ABLE!!! McMillan and Dixon on consecutive days against the likes of Alabama is just unreal. As far as head coaches go, there is nobody else I'd want recruiting for OSU other than Urban. I'm drinking the kool aid.
Also, thank you Birm for your continued updates and stories, tweets, etc. on all things OSU football recruiting - you've done an awesome job keeping the 11W community and all Buckeye fans as up to date as possible and you do it the right way!
