Stainbrook has a knee injury right now and may not even be available in the tournament. He's their 3rd leading scorer and leading rebounder. If he is out, the experience/talent level drops off and there isn't much depth. They have a good young guy in Reynolds but I could see him getting in foul trouble easily. Agreed on Christon as I think he would be a tough guard but I'm confident in Craft guarding him personally. I honestly think this would be a good matchup for us.
Dear lord. We are truly spoiled. This class is amazing just like the last one. Urban and company never cease to amaze. Welcome to Buckeye Nation fellas!
I think the big knocks on Q have followed him throughout his career so far at OSU. He wasn't as highly ranked as he could have been coming out of HS because he had a lack of passion/intensity and some even questioned his love of the game. I think that might be hyperbole personally, but I do see his lack of intensity on the defensive side of the ball alot more clearly than the offensive side. He often doesn't box anyone out and the opposing offense consequently gets multiple offensive rebounds (i.e. Payne for MSU's two monster put backs). You would think that the personality of the two seniors on this team (Craft and Smith Jr.) would possibly influence Q in some way, but it doesn't seem to be the case so far. There is no doubt the guy has a high ceiling and the talent is there, hopefully he can put it all together.
Totally agree with this. There's a reason bowl practices are brought up by the coaches alot as being beneficial. I think they find a way to fix the scheme and taylor it to the Clemson Offense. They will get some seasoning for the D-backs that will have been tested constantly in practice by one of the most dynamic offenses in the country. Cautiously optimistic about this game.
Amen brother. Glad someone else had the balls to say it because I think it's pretty clear that the DB play has regressed throughout the year. Losing Bryant hurt no doubt, but you can't say that would contribute to an absolute shit show when it comes to covering the pass. Coombs is ultimately responsible and I see no positive development out of these guys. Everyone loves him for fiery personality (me included), but his coaching leaves me underwhelmed.
Feed your Los! Feed HIM! (in annoying Scottish accent).
Last paragraph is hilarious. My sense of humor to a T. Nice one man.
Here you go Fear. It's towards the middle. Meyer is quoted saying it was a pass all the way. I agree with you though. Looked like a run to me, but maybe Braxton had in his head that he was going to do whatever he could to get the 1st with it being 4th down and all.
I think we can all agree that questioning someone's durability is NOT the same as questioning someone's pain tolerance/toughness. We are going to question why Braxton seems to be getting hurt on a more frequent basis these last two years. It is only natural. I just hope we can do that without having to always preface the fact that we aren't questioning his character or will to play.
It's a great question. However, I read somewhere that the play call was actually a pass and Braxton ran because he knew we needed the 1st and it was the only play that was available to him to make at the time. I'll try to find whatever article it was that said it.
Glad I'm not the only one! Absolutely it's nostalgia coming through. But I actually liked how it was totally different than any other burrito you could get out there.
I think it's safe to say from the multiple comments on this thread, that LaBamba's was universally loved by drunk students (and im sure non-drunk ones alike) at 2AM. As I stated above, they gave you some small plastic ramekin filled with delicious goodness that you poured on your burrito as you ate it. Whatever the hell that stuff was, it was awesome.
Awesome Skully DJ btw. One of my favorites in recent memory. Thanks!
It's not that your comment was "out of line", it's just that I'm not sure who annointed you comment police. The site polices itself. We don't need hall monitors. We already have Mods and staff. Just sayin :)
I loved that place! Was there my whole time there from 2000-2004. Ashame they closed cause whatever that sauce/salsa stuff they gave you with your burrito "as big as your head" was like crack.
I guessed Billy Price on the other thread and was way off. Lo and behold, a young man that went to my High School takes the honor. Happy for a fellow Panther! Congrats Joe!
Love seeing people making the Ted Ginn Jr. comparisons because I honestly thought that when watching the highlight reel. He definitely has some similarities in how he runs. He obviously has a ways to go to prove he's on Teddy's level, but you can't help but be excited for the potential game-breaking ability this kid seems to possess. Hope he tears it up as a Buckeye!
Excited to have another fellow Elder Panther playing for the Bucks. I know another Elder Alum Jake McQuaide did a pretty solid job as a long snapper for us and is currently playing for the Rams I believe. Hopefully Ramstetter can parlay his success in the ultra competitive GCL South into a solid role for the good guys. Good luck to him!
Says the guy who doesn't use paragraphs or apostrophes. Just saying. :)
So nice to read someone who can articulate why Gee is the right fit for the job in such an easy to read manner. Thanks Ramzy.
Right there with you man! What the hell was that all about? Plenty of other blogs for that type of talk. Not 11W.
Good call Unky. Holbrook was the President when I was in school and I just remember how much we all couldn't stand her. I vividly remember post-game partying at some houses on Neil while I was in school and the houses had HUGE sheets that had F*ck Holbrook hanging over their balconies because of all the crap she did to diminish the student experience (at least that's how we saw it). Night and day difference now from what I hear from students that go there now. I'm fine with the guy. He does need to watch what he says though clearly.
Couldn't have said it any better Doc! I'd upvote you if I could!
