I saw Brimstone and Treacle back around 1983... Denholm Elliott. Sting plays this creepy guy caring for Elliott's comatose daughter, as I recall. Sting's a good actor. I think he started as a teacher, then an actor, then, oila.
Thanks sooo much for this link!! I just played it during my lunch hour. Brought back old college memories. Sigh. :)
That was actually taken from something Genghis Khan said... there was additional verbiage about riding their horses and "holding your enemies' wives and daughters to your bosom." Ol' Genghis liked to run up the score.
"disinterested" is DEFINITELY not the right word, since that word means "not have an interest, stake, or bias in the outcome". You mean "uninterested", i.e., bored.
well, "most of Buckeye nation" can't be wrong. Wake up Urb! Conduct polling of Buckeye Nation to make the decisions for you.
The offensive line is underperforming and they are presumably getting the normal number of game week reps. If they are not practicing well, it might be poor preparation for the 3-4 defense and the blitzes that they are seeing... they all need to be coached up better in that regard... give it a couple of more weeks of practice/playing before we push the panic button.
Let's keep the mocking of Bielema and Arkansas to a minimum, OK? And by "minimum", I mean no more than 50% of the posts this week should reference them. (And no less than, say, 40%)
You're right. the edge blocking cause a few outside run plays to be snuffed out. Evan Spencer and Noah Brown were sure blockers. They need Paris Campbell and the others to be as good. (Mike Thomas is big and physical like Noah Brown; he should be good. Any observations about him, guys?)
Lot of pressure on him now with Smith, Spencer, Brown not here this year. I think he will be a lynchpin.
"... I'm rollin' ... they hatin'..." (Is that a cat in a raccoon disguise?)
"You can't talk to me like that... I'm a lawyer... I go to court. I use big words."
If Brax was THAT accurate, he'd be our starting QB. :)
Two of the best TE's in the country. Urb has more toys than any of the other kids.
AWESOME!! Yakov Smirnoff would be proud!
In this offense... all 3 are unstoppable.
He has a lot to work on: footwork, ball handling, and the read option ... but I think with experience he will improve those things to combine with his excellent accuracy and truck-like power.
We think he is a GOD! And since he is mortal -- although this may not be proven for 50-70 years -- therefore you are right: he IS overrated.
PLEASE stop with the 50/50 balls crap. As a guy who saw EVERY pass CJ threw MULTIPLE TIMES on my DVR (No life), the ONLY truly 50/50 was the first TD against Wisconsin. Every other completion was a pass where the receiver clearly had the superior position. A 50/50 ball is a lob pass where both the defender and WR have about an equal stab at it. Please cite examples where CJ did this other than the one above.
Moloko plus! (milk plus)
I saw that play over and over... especially since the Big Ten Replay had a glitch and showed it twice for some reason. I strongly believe that almost pick was Michael Thomas' fault. Watch Devin Smith: he is assuming a position expecting Thomas to step behind him, rather than going after the DB who almost intercepted the pass. Cardale's throw is directed to right behind Smith. So both Smith and Jones (hmmm, sounds like a TV show) thought Thomas was going to catch it behind his blocker. Either that or Jones threw his most inaccurate pass of the post-season. I am fairly sure Thomas made a mistake there.
It was the delayed Saban effect, per SEC fans.
If Pro scouts were watching, Zeke just got a bump of his draft grade. I had NO idea he was the fastest player on the team (now that Doran Grant is gone or even faster than him?)....!!
Urban said that he looked around and not all of the "units" were strong. I assume he meant the DB's or LB's? Or both? And maybe the WR's?? I think he thought highly of Philly Brown, but no so much the other guys.
First world problems are the best ones to have.
I got on this thread because I thought there would be nothing else here but homage to that 6 (?) episode stroke of genius.
