Fitz, can you elaborate on Team Tix? What exactly is that? Is there an URL for it? With how hard it was to sell the tickets in the secondary market last year (granted it had alot to do with the teams in it), it's becoming tempting to try something else out other than the current process. Thanks for any info you can provide!
Proud Elder Alum here and think it's really cool Coach Fick is doing what UC coaches in the past have failed to do and that is get the city involved in the team. It's smart to do these kind of things in order to get the fanbase re-energized. It's such fertile football recruiting ground in Cincy and is an area that was ironically totally ignored by the previous regime. Good on him. I'd be just as happy if he was holding an open practice at Moeller or St. X.
Logged in to upvote. Hilarious and sadly very relatable!
Finally someone with some sense in here! FlyPie is the greatest pizza of all times. I lived above it my senior year and they had a lunch slice special of two slices of Pepp and a medium pop for $3.80. I sometimes drive up to the one on Fields Ertel in Cincy even though it's 45 minutes from my house just to get a large pepperoni and reminisce. The guy that runs the one in Cincy also went to Ohio State and we talk about it every time I go in there. Ah the good old days :)
This was honestly the first thing I thought of too when hearing his interview. Seems like he just gets it and is willing to do whatever it takes to help the team win. Definitely one of my favorites.
Could that DT stand for Dual Threat? I'm positive that is the way they determine the two types of QBs. PS for pro style and DT for dual threat. I think the first time I saw that i had the exact same thought!
Agreed, but it was a dude! Haha. I couldn't believe it when they brought him on and said it actually was a guy whose voice just got up to super high levels.
Heard this one earlier too. I immediately popped up and sent it to my buddy that sits by me. That interview they had with him was great. Definitely had a good sense of humor about it all.
Yeah that quote cracked me up too no doubt. The rules apply to everyone except the guy that gets a Heisman and helps you win a Natty, according to Jimbo.
From the perspective of winning Championships and OSU being a place that players come expecting to go to the NFL, I think it's actually a valid comparison as much as it may make your skin crawl.
I personally didn't even think twice about that. All I paid attention to was the crazy good publicity it gave our program especially from an NFL standpoint. The parts about FSU and UK were just used as a comparison to elite recruiting, which you can't really deny. I think the FSU part especially was so short compared to the OSU mentions, that it got lost amongst it all. I literally forgot about it when I posted the article since it was so insignificant in my mind.
Eight times? And if it was self defense, then why are you shooting the man's wife in the legs? I'm sorry but that just sounds very hard to believe.
I'm reading/seeing the same things you all are and I love Mack just as much as anyone. However, for him to beat out all the other talent we have on the roster at WR as a true freshman? I'm sorry but I just don't see it. I do think him enrolling early definitely helps him, however I feel like WR might be one of the deepest positions we have on the roster as far as untapped talent that has been waiting their turn. It would surprise the hell out of me if he played meaningful snaps this year as a WR.
My breakout is Mike Weber. Let Baby Los loose! As much as we might have a shift in offensive scheme to start throwing a bit more, I still think Urb's bread and butter is the inside zone and I feel like Weber fits the scheme really well.
I'm totally with you on this. I was really excited when we got McLaurin, Clark, and Dixon to commit and I guess I have just pulled for them ever since. It may be the nature of the position in that WR has traditionally been a position of strength for the Bucks and these guys were from out of state and highly touted. They all seem like good guys too, so let's hope we get to see them shine this season.
Really excited to hear about Johnnie Dixon and James Clark. Just hate seeing kids come here and not get their fair shot because of injuries. Hope these guys can contribute in a meaningful way this year!
Some lady at the theater I went to asked me if I would take her kids into the theater. I was like ummm are you serious? And she actually got pissed at me. Haha. She didn't want to pay for a ticket so you hand your kids off to some stranger to see a movie they have no business seeing in the first place? Couldn't agree with you more. It was embarrassing.
I personally can't stand Jesse Eisenberg and think he's a colossal D-Bag. So seeing him as Lex Luthor pretty much guaranteed me not seeing this movie in the theatres. I will definitely check it out later though.
How can you not love a kid like that? Great answers to some tough questions and you can tell how bad he wants it. So excited for what this year brings for him.
She's also in Homeland. I would have to agree that she is one of the hottest ladies on the planet. Unlike what other people have said, pretty much insanely hot in everything I've ever seen her in.
I might be the only person on the planet that wasn't totally disgusted by the floor angle during the broadcast the other night. While I absolutely wouldn't want to watch a whole game in that view, a couple glimpses here and there aren't terrible. I really do believe it helped give some perspective to how fast they come around the screens and how athletic these guys really are. You can't get that perspective as much from the current angle they use. On the flip side, there's a reason they use the standard camera angle they do. You can actually see everything unfolding and don't get your view blocked by players.
Fair enough, Good point. For the record, I love both classes and think they have a ton of potential. Just is weird hearing the coach say he needs/wants 18 guys from the class to play this year when we have a ton of talent from last year that hasn't even played yet. Then again, it could be classic Urb speak at the post signing day press conference. Wouldn't be surprised if he says this every year and I just haven't noticed it.
After reading that Urban thinks we need 18 players to come in and play next year, does it make anyone else wonder if last year's recruiting class dramatically underwhelmed the coaching staff? When you figure the vast majority of the class redshirted, why wouldn't you count on them to contribute in a big way as opposed to the incoming freshmen? Just was an odd comment to me, although I'm probably misunderstanding what he is saying.
Hard to argue with this as it would be tough for alot of these guys to have to adapt to a new D Coordinator for one year then head off to the NFL. I'd imagine Chris Ash leaving has at least a little something to do with this, nothing against Schiano at all. I do feel like one more year would benefit him but I enjoyed the time he did put in here. Best of Luck Eli!
