The idea of a Bexit and JT not declaring for the CFL draft are hilarious.
DJ...need to know how many times you've had Skyline since that day in
Cincie? I'm a convert who finds now myself there somehow 3-4 times a year, sometimes even if I haven't after taken an early ambien.
Not worried at all...Alabama, like it or not, is the gold standard. They don't miss a beat when they lose DC's etc...they've actually gotten better. Fickell and Coombs are really good recruiters/salesmen, but you're only as good as what you're selling. EVERYBODY is a great recruiter at THE. Luke has a good eye for talent, but there is a reason why he hasn't gotten a good coaching gig yet and why he's had co-DC's. Not sure he's ever going to be head coaching material, and that's no knock, guys like Larry Johnson are meant to teach these men more so than run a program, I think Luke is more of that mold myself. We shall see.
***see Seantrel Henderson
Peppers- Most over-hyped player in a long time...even at Mgo they say he's not the team MVP/best player or even the best top 2 on defense
Lone captain, Torrance Gibson.
I'd be laughing if Cincy was bragging about getting a Bruce Willis anything...Have they seen how well Cleveland is coming back? It's the perfect place for a guy who's been trying to bring back his dead career.
My Dad (now a retired lawyer) was a valet at the Kahiki when he and Jack were both at OSU. He told me long ago about how Jack pulled up one night and he couldn't see in the car that well with the glare, when he asked for his name Jack was irritated and said to others in his car "can one of you tell this guy who I am?"... My Dad always rooted for Jack, but it was no secret that he was a little arrogant and a country club snob. Hopefully they don't come down too hard on this guy who didn't know or recognize him.
Urban is the best coach in college football, he's a winner in every sense of the word...but, they didn't beat MSU first and foremost due to how they (the coaches) decided to play/playcall that day, uncharacteristicly conservative, even for horrible weather. I'm sure he knows it and it eats them up...he'll use it for motivation. Winner!
This is all Texas' fault got-dammit! First Ricky Dudley dropped everything, then David Boston dropped his career, then Dontre Wilson hit a bunch of potholes, the flying Mitchell Brothers flopped (man-Cinnabon and all) and now Austin Grandstaff got homesick?
don't mess with Texas
I'm 45 but I've had season tickets since I was a student at OSU. I still feel that Thad is a top 10 coach who we are lucky to have at a football first, non-top 10 coaching destination. Even when we were ranked #1 several times over the years you saw a lot of empty seats outside of B1G season or when a big name team came to town...and even the bigger crowds are notoriously quiet. Unless at some point they are sure they can get someone better than Thad, he deserved to be supported when we have a couple rebuilding years every so often.
I read the kneenote but think he'll be ready. He has a foot problem too? Damn, the kid can't catch a break!
Going into the combine he would only be proven as a very solid punt returner at the college level...this doesn't get you in the first half of the draft. Unless his combine numbers are better than expected and he runs much crisper routes, he's not going in the early rounds and would be making a mistake.
Ummm, there is a Bosa missing from this 2 deep...his ACL will be healed completely by next summer and he'll be in the rotation, if not starting most of next season.
What's a passing attack???
Um, also...hasn't OSU built and sponsored race cars, land-speed record (rocket cars)? No danger there?
More people need to fight this from getting shut down...eventually more and more people will want to ban high school and college football or separate it from schools...there are already many articles calling for in and to high school and college football due to recent deaths and the number of concussionsfootball in and to high school and college football due to a couple recent deaths and the number of concussions.
Man, I'm glad I went to OSU (college in general) before things got so incredibly PC. Even very tame comedians like Seinfeld don't want to play colleges any longer because it's out of control. Yes, let's cancel all the Polar Bear plunges or sports/marathons etc when someone (likely with an undiagnosed heart problem, tragically dies)... I known people (including my brother in law at 25) who were in shape and died when jogging, and playing b-ball...both with undiagnosed heart issues.
I went to OSU and I have a confession: I hate Carmen Ohio! Sorry, but confessing it makes me feel better about it. Wish we had a different post game song or ritual.
How can you miss Tressel? That was exactly how we'd lose that type of game with Tressel. That was total Tressel and how you'd expect him to play that game in that weather. Dantonio (Tresel Jr.) called the same game, they just executed better at the line of scrimmage
They were already going 3 and out like crazy with the wind behind them...trying some deep throws with safties cheating up and everyone on D with 10 yards was safer than throwing short passes in traffic...there wasn't much to lose by dropping 2 steps and throwing a deep ball/deep fade a few more times.
Not sure how that works?
Curry can create his own shot almost anytime and anywhere on the court. Diebler cannot do that whatsoever
Could be very nice or great kid? Could be a jerk for all we know? But I don't think it's "classy" to go back on commitments...I get that it happens and they're just kids...most kids aren't too classy.
Yep...so I took the huge political note out, as to not offend.
