NICK CONNA! (Schwarzenegger voice)
Agreed 3M. It wasn't meant to be any sort of blame towards 11W. I appreciate everything that the staff and the members of this site do and I wouldn't have it any other way.
That's a cool article, thanks for posting UTK.
BTW, how incredible is it that Ted Ginn Jr is still the fastest player in the NFL 9 years into his career? That chase down of Patrick Peterson was fun to watch. It reminded me of the days when Ginn was playing for us and he would separate from defensive backs/special teams by 10-15 yards.
Our return game strategy/personnel are the most puzzling parts about our teams the last few years. It's like we are satisfied with mediocre and refuse to put someone with high end speed back there. Dontre is quick but his short legs make it hard for him to really get going and break one. I would like to see someone like James Clark, Torrance Gibson, or let Denzel ward show off his speed. But what do I know...
TG is one of the most intriguing players on the team. Hopefully he is out there working on his route running on his own right now similar to Braxton last year. He cant just show up to spring ball and expect to be on an even playing field as these guys who have been running routes and catching balls their whole career. There are a lot of truly talented wideouts on this team, so it seems he is going to have to work hard to earn his playing time. I'll be rooting for him to make a starting spot. Noah Brown, TG, Corey Smith/KJ Hill with McLaurin/Wilson in the slot. Sounds deadly to me.
I would agree with most. I would say Michael Thomas reminds me of his uncle Keyshawn more than anyone with his size, long strides, and hands. I've heard Braxton say he wants to be like Antonio Brown, but I see his role being more of Wes Welker with his ability to get open quick. I wanted to add someone to the list as well who I still consider a buckeye; Noah Spence! From all the reports this week, he is unblockable with his speed, and power. Hopefully he moves up the draft boards like Khalil Mack did last year after that worked out so well.
If you don't mind a little manual labor, try FedEx/UPS as a package handler. They are always hiring and they are pretty flexible with night time schedules. A friend works his day job and then goes to FedEx for 3-4 hours in the evening. They start around $12.50 or so and you get pretty frequent raises if you stay.
When will the 30 for 30 for Braxton come out?? I have my popcorn ready. "What if I told you, that an 18 year old quarterback from Ohio could lead his team to the national championship, without ever playing a snap that year?"
I have yet to try this, but I heard it is fantastic. Rated best new Columbus restaurant in 2015 If I remember correctly
Are you trying to scare him into changing his mind? I like how you think...
His story is one of the best on the team. Having the title as only being a Spring Game player and then being redshirted and calling his teammates out after the loss to Clemson. Now he is one of the best true receivers we have had in awhile and he has ran some of the best routes I have seen. He will be a great NFL target. Good luck Mike!
Clearly you found the right thread
I agree. They owe us nothing and they are the ones who have worked their whole lives to get where they are now. Let them bet on themselves and do what they think they have to do to support their family. 99% of us would have stopped going to class and studying if someone offered us a job making at least $450,000 a year.
Don't forget TG...I think he will eat next year #RandyMossJR
In Birm we trust
I did see Corey Smith retweet something about how him and Noah Brown would be back next year. So they may have already heard something.
I am going to miss this group of guys, they all were fun to watch in there own way. Bosa will be one of my all time favorite players to have on our team, the way he man handled offensive linemen like they were 8th graders. I'm not sure I've ever seen a player so dominant and powerful as him, especially this year he seemed to be on another level (even though his numbers were down). I would find myself missing the action on defense due to watching Bosa shedding 3 blockers while the offense ran away from him every play. I look forward to seeing him get drafted and have a successful NFL career.
I hate Bama, but I don't have to deal with their fans very often up here. My company hires Michigan State grads out of college and they are the worst of the worst co-workers. They are the trimmed hedges, picket fence, daddy pays for my new car, everything they do is relevant and everything you do is shit, kind of people. Basically, they are disciples of Conner Cook and his frat douchbagery. I would enjoy Bama rolling them 56-0 then let Archie interview Cook after the game but as soon as he goes to say his first words, Archie gives him The Rock's "It doesn't matter what your candy ass has to say".
Ted Ginn Jr vs Oklahoma St. when he jukes the same guy out twice and then reverses field on the whole team
yes, obviously we would want it to be that way, but that never happened. All I am saying is that if MSU misses that FG and we somehow squeak out a win in OT, Warriner doesn't move to the both, Beck remains the play caller, and we continue sweeping everything under the rug. The team we saw against MSU wasn't going anywhere.
