Can you imagine any other league dragging one of its biggest superstars through the mud like this? The NBA would never touch Lebron for something so silly. I'm glad Brady is fighting it, the NFL deserves to be called out for their inconsistency.
I think they are just digging themselves in a deeper hole. Similar to when someone doesn't take a good plea deal in court and pleads innocent, they are going to be hammered if they are found guilty. Green/Kerr saying that the flagrant should be taken away, might just piss the NBA off since he doesn't recognize what he is doing wrong.
As big of a POS as Green is, I don't want him suspended. The Warriors don't need any excuses for why they didn't make the finals and ESPN would never let the eventual NBA champion be known as the undisputed champ because they would have hours and hours of "What if Draymond wasn't suspended" talk and other hypotheticals.
On another point, I will never understand why these teams let Golden State get away with so much without sending a message. I'm not saying "Take somebody Out", but you can't get kicked in the kiwi's multiple times and just let it slide. Give someone a hard foul while acting to go for the ball or run through a screen and knock someone on their ass. This team has gotten soft treatment all year.
I still cannot believe they put Zeke back there to try to field a punt last year. That was when I realized that Urban is not looking for the homerun, rather just someone who is going to catch the ball (ironically, he muffed it)
It is pretty obvious that the return game is not a big concern to this coaching staff. Marshall has had the only touchdown in the last 6 years I believe. We have actually had more negative game changing plays on kick/punt returns that positive game changers.
You may be thinking of Giddens, who shot close to 40%
Why mock our own player for putting his name in the hat to at least be noticed by some NBA teams? That is like telling someone not to apply for a job just because they don't have a masters degree, 8 years experience, and numerous great references. At least now he knows that he has to keep improving to get where he wants to be.
Especially when he flexes his little 4 inch biceps lol. It doesn't matter how great you are, if you don't have biceps, don't flex them
I know when felder committed, he mentioned how he is just focused on school and his grades, so that makes sense
And that's how the cookie crumbles
I think the hype for Lewis is there, it's just reserved to see if he can play without Bosa on the other side of the line sucking up defenders and giving everybody open lanes. Hubbard has also shown a knack for making the big play similar to Darron Lee, so naturally he is going to be more recognized. I agree with you though that they will both shine this year.
The bigger issue is that Oregon State, Furman, and Fresno State are involved in "Primetime" games
I think Braxton's career really depends on if his team is willing to mold portions of the offense around his game. Ted Ginn Jr went through 5-6 years of teams trying to plug him into offenses that weren't designed for him, so he appeared as just a decent receiver. Last year, the panthers figured out how to use him and he had the best year of his career. I can't wait to see how they plan to use him. The Houston offense could get scary good with Hopkins, Miller, and Fuller
100% agreed. I see this more as Connor giving the UFC a middle finger and also as a money grab after he saw how much each fighter took in the Mayweather-Pacquio fight. Connor's only chance of winning this fight would be by knockout and that is nearly impossible since he will be 25 pounds under his normal weight, wearing thicker gloves, and fighting the world's most boring technical fighter. McGregor would be gassed after a few rounds of missed punches and it would be another hugging match.
These do look nice. Personally, I like having 2-3 different sets that only come out on special occasions rather than having 9 million different combinations that aren't any more significant than the last. When Ohio State comes out in the storm trooper or all black, it just makes it feel like a special night.
Perfect time to swoop in and get Christian Kirk to transfer to a real team
LOL I've never seen that before. I guess if I knew 100,000 people were watching me, I would wouldn't know how to act either.
Was anyone else confused by Marcus Baugh's body language throughout the game? Maybe I just haven't seen him enough and that is just how he is, but he seemed a little Marc Loving-ish as far as his emotions went. He had a huge day and made tons of good plays, but he would stand up and look at the ground as he walked back to the huddle as if he did something wrong. Just seemed a little odd to me for a guy who had to be itching to show what he can do.
Burrell should have kept his dreads. He would be starting by now if he did
You are seeing that psychology degree in full effect in my opinion. I don't want to downplay what these players are doing because I'm sure they are working hard, but I think Meyer is seeking out the hardest working freshmen and possibly giving them a little extra praise than a freshman would earn in previous years. He knows recruits see how many redshirts we had last year, so he wants to prove that you can earn your spot as a freshman. Just my opinion though, they could just be that good.
I was skeptical about Mack coming in as a freshman and earning playing time immediately because we just haven't seen Meyer do that, but it seems like that is going to happen now. Mack must be working his ass off because I've never heard of a black stripe being removed this early. Congrats to the Mack
That underwhelming passing game has set multiple all time Ohio State records, so I can't wait to see our overwhelming game
Neither team has lost at home this year and Golden State would have the home court advantage. They would take it in 5-6
That is why Russell will be playing professionally for 15 more years and the other names on this list are not in the league. That is what makes players like him elite, when you add desire to god given talents. That's what we have been struggling with here for a few years now, we have players with an off/on switch that decide when they want to give an effort. Loving can score 25 points in one game and then score 2 the next game and you could replace Loving with 4-5 different names over the last few years and the story stays the same
d. all the above
