Comment 26 Oct 2014

Too many posts to see whether someone has already posted something similar, but a couple of random thoughts:

1.)  Our loss to VT was 12 days after learning that we would be without Braxton and the staff had to prepare JT (and the rest of the team) for Navy versus VT who was playing William and Mary.  I'll wager they spent most of their preparation scheming for the Bucks.

2.)  Why is it that two of our "tougher" opponents get a bye week before playing us?  PSU and MSU have bye weeks immediately before playing OSU.  Both are night games, on the road, in hostile stadiums.

3.)  Will Tom Herman learn from watching the PSU offense using the wide receiver screen to near perfection?

This was a tough win in a tough environment for a young team whose offensive line had </= starts compared to the PSU offensive line.  Keep improving and let the chips fall where they may.  We might only be able to be Big10 Champs and win our Bowl Game with the current playoff system.  I would be happy with that for this team.

Hopefully everyone came out of this game healthy but we need to run JT less to keep him healthy for the MSU and UM games.

Go Bucks!

Minor correction, it is the Van Wert Cougars, and Bath and Kenton Wildcats, along with the Celina, Defiance, and Elida Bulldogs, the Shawnee Indians, Wapakoneta Redskins, and Ottawa-Glandorf Titans in the WBL.  I will be surprised if Sherman sees the field if he is lucky enough to go to a D1 school.  He has a side-armed delivery that will not work at a higher level and he isn't as elusive as either of the Mauk boys.

I think it will tell the young guys that OSU has as much to offer as 'Bama.  Getting a 'Bama grad to transfer instead of playing another year for Saban might put thoughts in their heads that all is not right in 'Bamaland.

Could it possibly be the roller skating rink that later became the Big Bear that was torn down when they built the River Watch Condos?

Similar to Gene Smith's contract bonuses for Olympic sport National Championships, I think Mark Emmert receives a bonus for every professional contract that is signed by an NCAA athlete.


my sarcasm font isn't working - it shows up in italics while typing, but not when posted.

The NCAA proposed in committee today to allow more meals for athletes.  If approved it will go into effect August 1.  Non scholarship athletes would also be allowed to eat at training table.  This is a step in the right direction.

I am in favor of athletes receiving a scholarship for the "true cost" of their education, including proper room and board.  Athletes shouldn't be living in Taj Mahal dorms or apartments when I've seen some of the off-campus housing that the average students are subjected to.  BUT, they also shouldn't be going to bed hungry and should be able to eat nutritious meals that will meet the needs of their rigorous workouts.  Perhaps Mr. Napier should be spending more on food than on his body ink.

The more important question is "Was the pig okay with this?"

Comment 07 Apr 2014

While I am in favor of the athletes receiving a scholarship for the "true cost" of their education, I would argue that the outbreak of ink on some of their bodies indicates that they already have spending money.  I would also like to put at least some of their stipend in a trust fund that is given to them upon their graduation.  That would be an incentive for them to finish their education and improving the graduation rates for the university and their respective sports.

Comment 27 Mar 2014

I can't believe there hasn't been any comments regarding Smith's bonuses.  My naive hope is that he is putting those bonuses in the bank and will hand them over to the rightful owners upon graduation.

Unfortunately I'm thinking along the same lines.  It won't be long; if a pair of Gold Pants don't mean anything to some this won't either and will probably fetch a pretty price.  One thing that might keep them from selling them is their name being so prominent and possibly UFM instilling some Buckeye pride (and maybe a little warning?).

Great job Curt!  In response to USMC's quest for depth, we are also red-shirting a couple kids (Stieber, Jordan,.?) that could feasibly be on the podium THIS year if the coaching staff wasn't building for next year.  We also said goodbye to Tasarri (sp?) that left a hole in the middle weights.

Comment 22 Dec 2013

Did anyone notice that ESPiN had our record as 11-1 when they showed the final score?  Hilarious!  They had already marked it up as a loss for the Buckeyes and forgot to change it.

My daughter was one of the jumpers on Monday night.  She and several of her friends had planned to jump on Tuesday but decided to "be rebels" and shun the restrictions.  As a senior she will have something to remember the rest of her life.
