Nice to know the "next man up" in line following Marshall and Wilson is signed.
When a player is effectively molested (not like Jerry Sandusky would do) by the other player to get his hands on the ball, that is not a jump ball by an set of rules in any league. But basketball refs are often only a little bit behind MLB umpires at bad calls so....
On the contrary, they have those games alternating with the actual hard games giving them an scrimmage/bye week in November.
Their shooting slumped continued that started with Michigan State in the Big 10 tourney. They also shot poorly with good looks in the first round but won because they have more talent. I also don't see as much development as I would like They won't all be Evan Turner but the effort should be there.
It was nice to see cold shooting start to wear off. It had been around too long starting with that Mich State game.
Jay Burson and Dennis Hopson in the same photo. Awsome.
They represent the whole state of Ohio. Even those from Kentucky which is just south of Dayton. Don't think so? Ask a hater out of state.
Yep. The list of non band members to dot the "i" is very short. And he is on it.
8-9 seeds are one and done if ever there was a phrase to suit.
Here is to hoping Daniel Giddens is as good of a replacement for Amir Williams as we think he is going to be. I would take an Oden clone but know that doesn't happen too often.
Did you think this when they waxed Maryland's ass? There were two things at work. They did look tired and lethargic on defense. They did not look like a typical Thad Matta team. And they haven't for most of the year. So it goes with kids when their heads are down. Russel was as cold as I have seen from a great shooter in a while. You can't do anything about it. If he didn't miss what seems like 5 or 6 in a row in the first half, when he easily created separation, it would change everything. Did they need more effort? Hell yes. Are they going to win on an off night shooting? Hell no.
Maturity, which leads to decision making on the field.
Although Cardale has obviously grown by leaps and bounds. When scrambled and threw it away, and he actually threw it away into the stands where it belongs on that play. Cardale was doing it when it supposed to happen and I was quite pleased to see it.
At first I thought that was Jim Tressel celebrating a punt.
It's an "embarrassment of riches" only if Miller and Barrett are healthy .
Yep. While JT should start, until he is without a hobble, he isn't it. And considering the awesomeness Jones displayed under pressure, I am not too concerned at this point
The spread is not a prediction and it never was. This is why it can shift. It is an arbitrary number used based on perception of a team and is used to get equal money on both sides. The odds are the same way.
I recall reading rebuttals to southern dominance about where they get their coaches. Including the insane grass eaters.
You can point out where Marty Schottenheimer and Chuck Knoll come from. When it comes down to it, PA goes to Ohio for football greatness. If you want to turn the screws a little tighter. When the Steelers absolutely had to have a great coach, then went shopping in Cleveland.
Jones should be the starter assuming the health is uncertain.
That sucks. Glad he is still playing, but that is the third worst choice after Pittsburgh and Baltimore. And I hope he does well.
TCU lost on the field to Baylor. That is a really bad loss. And on the contrary, non-Kool Aid drinkers know Va Tech was not a really bad loss as the game meant very little. With everything on the line, TCU lost.
The spread only works when the defense is clearly inferior in terms of athleticism. It is based upon that assumption to succeed. If it worked, it would work. Balance between pass and run to keep the defense honest is a much better scheme than having multiple running backs.
So 9 players out of 15 drafts are ok? That is 129 total. When they do draft, many have ended up elsewhere in a short amount of time. And it isn't like Joe Thomas was unknown or a risk. Tevin Coleman will be on the board when the first pick comes up. In case anybody forgot, he picked up 2000 yards without Wisconsin's offensive line blocking for him. He would make Hoyer look much better. They will not take him.
People that know Tom Cruise is certifiable.
