Thumbs up for the Drew Magary link. I'm not a fan of Deadspin these days, but I continue to read anything that he writes.
Great work, Kyle. I'm always impressed when strategy can be broken down so quickly. It looked like my strategy in Madden on Saturday night with blitzes coming from every which way. Now it makes more sense.
Eddie George: 314. Do I win?
It is a bit disappointing when you see how many Buckeyes were cut until you continue scrolling and see that there are far more still on active rosters. Not bad for a synchronized swimming school.
Here's hoping Bosa turns his hat around on 3rd and short situations. We know what that means.
Agreed. No disappointment either way. I always want U of M to beat ND because the Leapin' Leprechauns aren't on our schedule. While the Rich Rod era was nice and losing to Toledo and App State still make me smile, I much prefer a highly ranked (and soon to be disappointed) opponent in The Game
In my opinion, it's hard to top a shower beer on gameday. Hop in the shower, crack your first cold one. Sometimes it helps if you bring multiple just to be safe (note: this is almost always the case for Saturdays late in November).
If I'm reading correctly, am I to imply that if I drink beer during the Buckeye games, they're sure to win?
I'll do my part.
re: Dubcast questions- When's the cutoff for this week's mailbag?
The Thompson library statue. That one was easy, though the Oval doesn't have all of the construction fences up like when I left campus, so I didn't recognize it at first.
Drew Magary is the best. If you haven't done so, read his book "Someone's Going to Get Hurt" or something along those lines, especially if you are a parent. It is laugh out loud funny numerous times.
Also, his Mailbag pieces on Deadspin crack me up as do his weekly NFL previews that always offer a movie to substitute for watching your team's game if you are a (usually Bills) crappy team's fan.
Better idea for 11W glasses:
Today I learned that if walking into someone's house uninvited gets you a waffle iron to the face, I am not cut out to live in the mean streets of Marion.
Thanks for the lesson, DJ
It's important to remember that JT Barrett wasn't offered a scholarship because he's a bum.
While there's something to be said for Braxton and his 2 Big Ten MVP trophies, Barrett is in a great place if he is able to rally the team around him in BraxonBraxonBrax's absence.
Like someone else said, I'll cheer for whoever is under/behind center and hope for the best...except for on November 29th, when I'll demand the best.
I was unaware that Kosta Karageorge plays football. He's been the backup heavyweight on the Buckeye wrestling team for the past several years.
Good for Fickell, Johnson, etc for allowing a wrestler to play defensive line. He probably won't sniff the starting lineup, but wrestlers are good at handfighting. At the very least, KK is going to help improve the offensive line as they'll have to work against him on a daily basis.
Charlie Weis, Ralph Friedgen (who is currently the Rutgers offensive coordinator), Hoke, and Bert like their respective team's chances at the B1G MAC title.
Browns. Hands down. Then the Indians. Then a whole host of other things. Then the Cavs.
When one of the first links is about MMA, even though it's about a pile of garbage like Koppenhaver, you immediately capture my attention. Well. Done. Sir.
That came across very clearly when I spoke with Kyle. He is obviously no stranger to interviews.
Great question. Kyle will likely start this season at 197 lbs and replace Nick Heflin in the lineup.
I can promise you that you won't be disappointed.
bold statement. Follow @curtheinrichs on Twitter and you will likely be disappointed on a regular basis.
You had me at "college" and "Natty."
