Couldn't be happier for Shazier, but -- and I hope this doesn't come off as cynicism -- I wish these guys would show up in "combine shape" at the beggining of the season.
Remember Randy Ayers? I'll take Matta any day of the weak, regardless of how this season pans out. I think people can dream all they want about getting a big name coach, but if you get rid of Matta, that's not gonna happen.
I want to die fast if I'm going to die.
Maybe that's what he was teaching our corners?
The only logical scenario I can come up with is that USA Today employs 9 year olds?
Falco was coached by famed Hoosier coach Norman Dale...so he wins in my book
100% agree, If you have a pair of working legs there's a quick remedy for sitting behind someone who's standing. It drives me absolutely crazy when some grumpy yahoo behind me acts like I'm being completely outrageous for standing and getting loud.
Ramzy, you have never once ceased to blow me away. Incredible piece.
This just made my day.
Was "The Foot Bowls" already taken?
that is totally absurd, I had no idea he was that strong.
I could be way off, but I think it means "thus"
nail on head. this article should be widely circulated, awesome awesome read. Had no idea couch said that. Pretty wild.
is there any new news on Okafor? Or other targets Thad has?
"I was named the 2007 Frank Broyles National Assistant Coach of the Year here at Ohio State, leading the nation in total defense, scoring defense, and pass defense. One of the few men to ever really exploit one of my defenses happens to be the head coach at this fine university."
Can't wait for this 30 for 30. Such awesome documentaries. I am getting a little tired of the "what if I told you" marketing campaign though. Surprised SNL hasn't parodied yet
If Bell's brother's tweets are real, and he actually is close with his brother, I don't mind him passing on us.
is firstrowsports.eu a live stream or do you have to wait? Also is it only supported by windows?
I've noticed that he tends to sell injuries. "Close" late hits out of bounds he'll stay down and he usually always gets the flag, even if he doesn't need to sell it. He did the same thing with the late hit today. I honestly think the thing that bothers me most, is the feeling I get when he goes down, because I think to myself that that hit has gotta be the one that just ended his season. It's a horrible feeling, however he always seems resilient enough to get back in the game. I just wish if he was dinged up a little bit, and needed to come out, he would just get up and it wouldn't be sold as the season ending injury every time, especially from commentators.
Here's how my weeks have gone. Sunday - moping about because we played a horrible game against an oppenent who I felt we were so much better than. Monday - Listen to Bishop and Rothman, and Common Man and Torg talk about how bad we are, and I tend to agree with them. Tuesday - Listen to more radio and then read the presser notes, realize we have Urban as a coach and realize he won't stand for the BS that went on last Saturday. Wednesday - play all my fantasy ESPN games, which typically I pick mostly OSU players in my College Showdown, because they have favorable matchups and should perform well. Thursday - I start getting excited for the upcoming game, as last Saturday's memory fades and the work week is almost over. Friday - I listen to all the Buckeye football radio shows, and listen to absurd predections (OSU 52, UAB 17; "If OSU doesn't put half-a-hundred on the board I'm going to be disappointed.") Then I start getting really excited because traditionally we have put points on the board against bad opponents, and this is Ohio State and we shouldn't struggle against far lessor oppenents because that's just not what we do, except for rare occasions (Marshall, Cinci). Then Saturday rolls around and I'm totally amped to finally see this high powered offense, and a traditional stout defense, and my expectations come crashing down, as I watch a defense underperform and give up 400+ yards, and an offense that typically goes 3 and out, except on the occassions where they score 3 touchdowns in 1:30. Then after the game I tell myself that I'm not going to get as confident next week. lather, rinse, repeat.
This is laughable...but I guess maybe this is now the best Big Ten game of the year...that is until Northwestern plays Minnasota. Whoooie! is that gonna be a barn burner. I would've rather seen gameday come to Columbus, for Urban's debut against Michigan.
I would as well, it might clear up some of our bubble screen issues that seem to be getting opposing teams 4-6 yards of 1st downs.
Awesome idea! Definitely will generate more discussions as well.
I graduated from Miami, and I always thought we had a good party scene. For instance, on Green Beer Day our bars would open at 3:30 in the morning to accomidate the masses of people who wake up at 4:00 am to shove Irish Car Bombs in their faces. There's an extraordinary amount of douchebags at Miami and Sir Rick's right, the girls are more fun to look at than to talk to.
