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!
I do think it's funny seeing people on all the message boards about this trade saying "I'm done". Cool. Good riddance. If you don't understand the economics of baseball, then you obviously wouldn't understand why the Reds would make a move like this. I, like everyone else, am not completely understanding the prospect haul they got in return and quite frankly don't like it. However, questioning why the hell you would trade him is pretty dense. It's the life of the small market team. As someone said above me, you have to understand your windows on when you can contend and build for that. I personally am glad the Reds aren't going to just sustain shittiness when it's totally obvious they aren't going to contend and are going into full rebuild mode instead of retooling mode.
The other weekend my buddy and I got Chilitos with extreme cheese and extra chili and cheese on top. I got two and they put it in one of those black coney holder things. When I opened up it up, they barely even fit in there they were so huge haha. Might be the best tasting thing i have ever gotten from there and i could barely get through half of it. Reheated amazingly as well.
I sold mine on StubHub for $165/per ticket and paid $65/per ticket initially. I was going to post something telling people that they should at least try to get $200 or so per ticket because they are selling like crazy! I wish I had been a little more greedy here haha. Was worried that since they are paper tickets, that I might not have as high of a demand for mine. I literally sold them 2 minutes after posting them.
Probably my favorite one of these I've seen this year! Well done!
32-4 as the starter and a Big Ten Championship isn't anything to sneeze at. I wouldn't say he's one of the best in history either but it's not completely off base.
I got to meet Dave Revsine at the BIG 10 experience at the Indy convention center two years ago for the BIG Championship game and he was the most genuine and down to earth on air personality I've ever met. Such a nice guy. I love that he is representing the BIG in this even if it does sound kind of stupid.
My nephew loved Thomas the Train when he was a little guy. He especially had a love for Thomas' friend Percy. Only problem was that he couldn't pronounce Percy's name correct. He said Pussy. So he always would say how much he loved pussy as a 3 year old. Freaking hilarious. He also called balloons "bagoons".
Surprised I haven't seen many South Park nominations. Probably one of my favorite shows of all time. No show makes me laugh out loud more.
Also loved 24, GoT, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Always Sunny, The Wire, Arrow, Orphan Black, The Blacklist, Shark Tank, and The Killing. More than that but those jump out to me.
My brother in law puts a little crushed red pepper in his to kick them up a notch. They are damn good. I've seen a few bars in Cincy have these on the menu. I was always used to my Mom making them growing up.
Well said and couldn't agree more.
Only time I've been to New Jersey was on my way to NYC for New Years my freshman year at OSU (2000-2001). We stopped at a Pizza Hut and they were out of pizza. Can't make that up. Haven't been back since! And spare me the Pizza Hut jokes. I was a broke college kid :)
Great read Jonathan! Thanks for the insight! Learned something new today. I never even thought about the keys like that, so it was cool reading that along with your other analysis. Welcome aboard!
Totally agree. It's comments like these that are baiting people into more arguments and trying to be divisive. I'm tired of it. Saturday can't get here fast enough.
Thanks for this comment NorCal. Well said. I actually know a couple people that work at Pizza Hut and they are some of the nicest people I know and are at least high school educated, not that that even matters. Just need to be cognizant of how we present ourselves and don't stoop to the level of the sign maker.
Glad someone mentioned this. This is the fan I deal with daily. OSU is "scared" to play UC. Hilarious.
My nephew plays for Moeller's JV team and my brother goes to his practices all the time and is around the school alot. He told me that Jake looks like a grown ass man already. He said he couldn't believe how big he was and looked like he could start now for any college team in the country. On top of that, he apparently is a great kid. Love the talent that Urban is getting out of my hometown!
Consider me a Grey Shirt as well. I'll be joining around bonus time. This is my favorite site on the internet, so it's only natural I pay it forward. Thanks for all the amazing content you put out. It literally is an embarrassment of riches just like our beloved Buckeyes this year!
I always think it's funny when someone gets questions on how confident they are. It literally means nothing. Of course they are going to say they are confident in themselves. They can say they are confident all they want, but what really matters is how confident they ACTUALLY are when the situation dictates it.
Not breaking any new ground with this comment as plenty of people have said it already, but MAN Joshua Perry is so impressive. I can't believe how incredibly poised and well spoken he is for a guy his age. So proud of him and what he represents. Here's to a long successful career for that guy!
I'd venture a guess and say it is along the same line as what Darron Lee was saying in that we don't talk about last year anymore. It's all about this year . Could obviously be totally wrong, but that would make sense to me at least.
Cool idea! Done.
I'll probably get crushed for this but oh well. My oldest brother went to Penn State and I used to root for them when I was a little guy, especially their team that should have won the title with Kerry Collins an Ki-Jana Carter. I was just starting to become a Buckeye fan around that time. My family is really close so we all pull for each other's teams, even though it's admittedly very tough to do so for PSU these last couple of years! I also root for Sparty except for when we play obviously. Had a couple cousins go there and an ex-gf who was awesome. Every time I visited her while in school, everyone was so cool to me. I can't hate on them.
