Remember that Fickell attended DeSales HS in Columbus and is familiar with the Catholic school system.  He might have a better feel for these kids than another coach might have.

Fire UFM - He's NOT wearing a headset.  Shades of Brady!  ;^O

Just throwing this out there from a limited knowledge of the body's musculature/tendons, but I believe there have been studies that show the attachment points of our muscles and tendons are weaker than the larger muscles that advanced weight training is making possible.  I am hopeful that the great gains that Mick Marotti is achieving with our athletes are not at the expense of the increased risks of injury.

Most areas are also in need of game officials.  If your job prevents you from the commitment of coaching every day, check your state high school athletic association ( like OHSAA in Ohio - OHSAA.org) for officiating requirements.  You won't get rich, but you will have the satisfaction of being involved in developing these young athletes.  Without officials the games can't be played.

“I’m pretty shocked and confused,” said Mark Coker, Hunter Coker’s father, adding that he hadn’t heard of the incident until he was contacted by a reporter. “I’m really surprised.”

A parent in denial?  No way!

Extreme NWO response to something outrageous, rather than Oh My Goodness (or some erroneously say god), we say "Oh My Lanta" (Mylanta Antacid).  I'll give credit to the parks and rec director, but it could have been the middle school math teacher.

in addition to Marcus Hall's comment about the girl's bush, a common saying is "her skirt was so short she had to wear a hair net."

MadDog - around these here parts (NWO) that is pert near - "she's pert near 40" - close enough that we speak the same language with different dialects.

Comment 09 Apr 2015

Sadly, he hasn't been cleared by the Buckeyes MEDICAL staff to join the program at all; so he hasn't practiced or participated because of the MEDICAL staff and not through a decision of his own.

FTFY

I find it refreshing that the medical staff cares enough about this young man to suggest to him that his playing days are over.  The fact that another doctor feels differently is not a negative for either staff, but possibly the other staff is unrealistic about the stress and demands that a major D1 program puts on players.  Let's wait to throw stones at our MEDICAL staff until we see Jamel play at another major D1 program and stay injury free.

I once flew on the same plane that Tiger Woods flew on the year before, except my seat was with the baggage and Tiger was in first class (or that's what the flight attendant told me).  She could have been mistaken because "all black guys look alike."

I can't wait for the comments about this being as bad as the UF players blocking each other in a game.

needless to say I wasn't impressed with the little bit that I watched on Saturday.

I have this play in a limited edition print hanging in my basement from a different angle.  One of my favorites!

When Mountain Dew first came out, there was also a Kickapoo Joy Juice on the market.  Anyone else remember KJJ?

We put peanuts in our Dr. Pepper - better than Pepsi!

I posted on the "Background story on Armani Reeves" thread:


COMMENT 22 HOURS AGO

Several posts allude to kids giving up football due to the dangers of concussions.  I will add that many parents are steering their kids away at an early age for these same fears.  However, I would like to see a long term study done on soccer players, too.  Every time they strike the ball with their head (header) it is like a mini-concussion - the brain is jarred.  While this is a "mild" jarring of the brain, over time, and with increased velocity as the players progress, these mini-concussions can't be good for the brain.  Have there been any CT scans/MRIs of soccer players' brains similar to those taken of former football players?

Good luck to Armani - I've heard rumors that he will be a "student-coach" for the Buckeyes, but I haven't seen anything confirming that.

we arent from the future so we dont know

Bill and Ted have been there, maybe we can ask them or if George Carlin would grace us with his presence...

Excellent post dude!

Unless you're Brian Kelly : http://youtu.be/1f6DyBVJ5_A

he clearly talks about three players - one who chose to use the graduate transfer rule, one that was told there is no room for him on the ND roster, and a third that should be on next year's roster.  He also talks about some that have either flunked out or suspended that he looks to be reinstated.  This was actually pretty interesting.

UV for the Stieber statue!!!  An amazing wrestler that I had the pleasure of watching for 4 years in high school and the past 4 years at tOSU.  In an earlier thread I posted that only Cael Sanderson was also a 4x high school state champion (Utah, which with my Ohio bias doesn't compare to our talent).  Pat Smith was a 3-timer and Dake a 2-timer.  I also doubt that Sanderson was a 3x Junior High State Champ.
