Considering how much time I spend here, well worth it!
Wow, that should definitely help keep a foot-hold in NJ / mid-Atlantic recruiting...
That's a really hard to way to end your career at Ohio State - I feel bad for him, but the punishment itself is pretty fair.
Good story...mine is more of childish hijinks that took an unlucky turn...
Me and three of my buddies are staying over at one of their houses, when we have the bright idea of crank calling people late in the night. We're only 11 years old at the time, so this is the only clever thing we can come up with. So we grab the yellow pages (am I dating myself yet) and start picking numbers at random, waiting until someone answers and then asking some stupid question (I don't even remember). This goes on for a couple of calls, when one of my friends has the bright idea to call a number he knows - he calls the number, the dad picks up and he asks if his daughter is there, he needs help with his homework (I know, really stupid, but we're 11 year old boys, not the brightest). It's 1am and the dad is obviously pissed off and hangs up the phone.
The next day I get a call from the friend whose house we stayed at - apparently the state police just showed up at his door asking about harassing phone calls. It turns out the number my genius friend called was being cranked called almost nightly (even to this day, some 20 years later, he'll never admit it, but I know it was his dumbass older neighbors who he got the number from without knowing they were bothering this poor girl). You have to remember, this is before caller ID was on every cell and home phone (it was rarely used) - apparently the father had a caller ID, gave the number to state police and was going to press charges as he assumed he finally caught the people harassing him all the time.
Once the dad found out the story he decided not to press charges, but we still had to end up doing 20 hours of community service and write a letter of apology to the dad.
While I didn't end up in much trouble, having you parents grill you, bringing up state police and possible charges, at 11 years old, was pretty damn scary.
Chris Ash was a relatively unknown name at the time of his hire, but it seemed to work out well - excited to see who Urban brings in this time around.
At this point, it must be pretty obvious though to other assitant coaches with higher aspirations (which bodes well for having a large pool to choose from) - comes to Ohio State, get your shot at a head coaching job.
Wondering the same thing - I think 42 means you'll get 42 points, and vice versa, but don't hold me to that...
Good news, glad it worked out in the end - always have to be warry of contractors. My dad worked as a construction manager for almost 30 years, so he has made me very suspicious of anyone. Thankfully I have him as a resource, but I've seen enough HGTV to know there are a ton of bad / shady contractors out there.
Future at OSU is looking positive (the present is pretty damn good too).
IMO the head-to-head matchup is the strongest argument there is for why ranking Ohio State two spots above Michigan State doesn't make any sense. It would be one thing if we lost on a fluke play, but the O-line was soundly beaten that day and if it wasn't for the defense they could have easily been shut out.
Would things be different if we played again? Maybe, maybe not. We dominated Michigan, but it's obvious their D-line is not in the same class as Michigan State, and it's possible we could struggle again running the ball.
I think Ohio State would win a rematch, but we can't give it to them based on one great performance against a lesser opponent.
How are we ranked two spots above a Michigan State team that beat us?
While it works out in Ohio State's favor per this ranking, I'm happy the computers no longer decide who gets in.
Not a good look for our fan base if this is how we react after one loss. Granted I remember reading similar threads last year after the VTech game, so this isn't a first. But starting a petition online?!? If it's a joke, it's a lame one. If it's serious, it's just sad.
Tough one - Festivus, The Contest, Bubble Boy, any one that featured George:
Long way until signing day, but certainly good news considering the comments Birm has made over the last few days.
This is perfect - made sure to share with my other Big Ten fans (that also despise TTUN)!
while driving on the highway with his girlfriend, Colleen Crowley.
Given the level of success he's brought to the Browns, this is how I approach an article on Manziel:
First: image search for "Colleen Crowley." (I suggest you do the same)
Second: read the article
Pretty lame if that's the best they can do. I guess gives a preview of how Penn State will play tomorrow - try their best and still fail miserably.
He should go full "Jim Brown" and kick the extra points as well.
Amazing athlete, and looking forward to more of those video game moves Saturday night!
Such an ass, and deserves every loss he gets. I'm torn though - while I would like to see him flame out at Arkansas and end up only being able to coach pee-wee football, watching him lose so often is also enjoyable.
I might have missed it in the comments, but when does someone planning to enroll early usually need to decide by? I'd imagine the paperwork can be easily transferred between schools, so it might not be a big deal, just wondering...
