Russell's antics come off as a tad bit embarrassing with a loss. Not badmouthing the kid...just prefer to see a 'W' than stuff like this.
Respectfully, I don't think this even ranks as 311's best work! Those that remember the 700 Club on High Street will recall they played there on the Music tour in 1993...to a crowd of about eight people. Sigh. That was the same summer Blind Melon's first work came out, and also the year a little known Rage Against the Machine played Lollapalooza along with an unheard of act named Tool (on the second stage). Glad SOMEONE mentioned 311, though...

In watching the footage of 'Carmen Ohio' after the MSU win, I was again painfully aware of the fact that Kahleed Franklin (#3) has absolutely no idea what the words to the song are. Now, I recognize this is kinda' bitchy, and probably not even worth mentioning. But when Jim Tressel instituted the post-game singing of the Alma Mater, he insisted that every player under his watch know (at least) the first verse of the song. I know it isn't a big deal, but Kahleed is FROM COLUMBUS. If he's going to be in the front row during what is a very meaningful FAN moment (next to Script Ohio, perhaps one of the MOST meaningful), he should learn the words to the song. Every time I see that video, I cringe because the camera focuses on his bald azz.
That said, though I still tear up when I hear Cie Grant's rendition on that chilly morning in the 'Shoe when our most recent team of national champs returned home, even Cie gets the words wrong...
Time and time again, Cie gets the words wrong...
Somebody tell Cie that he needs to read the words and get 'em right...
Ok, enough of this douchebaggery, with apologies to you, my Scarlet and Gray brethren. GREAT scrapbook of moments this year.
What is an 'ass button'?
I like the Faux so much more than El Verdad.
....and in the words of Lou Brown, 'give 'em all a nice, big shitburger to eat.'
TURNER'S Boston Celtics? Really? Sullinger's numbers are markedly better.
Gathering thunderheads on the horizon, a chill wind blows through. Somewhere, distant in the blowing dust, a massive chapel bell sounds. It marks the death knell for one group of men...or the other.
These men are ready, on both sides. Mars, The Bringer of War, is high in the night sky.
The time is short.
What a winning and charismatic guy! NO WONDER players respond to him. I'm certain that all three qb's mentioned (plus a whole slew of other players) are very sad to see him go. At 39, it is the perfect time for him to be coming into his own as a head coach. It won't be long before he's putting up wins and leading the AAC. I hope the Cougar Alumni knows what they're getting and supports him 100%.
Well miss you, Coach H! (sob!)
Best of luck toward a bright future. Hopefully, we'll be making room for you as our new head coach some day!
I think it is a foregone conclusion that The Tide is going to put up some numbers, hopefully more yards than points. What has ALWAYS impressed me about our teams (especially those fielded by Ol' Sweater Vest) was their ability to play four quarters of hardnosed, smashmouth football. I believe Saban's team has yet to be truly tested in this respect, though that may be a bit of a pipe dream, since players like Cooper and...well...the whole damned defense...are immaculately conditioned athletes. I think it will be telling to see which team punches the other in the face first, and how the other reacts. This will be one for the ages, to be sure.
Bring Cooper. We can cover him.
Brilliant coach. Deserves to be coaching somewhere else. Nothing against the Cougars, but Houston is a HORRIBLE place to live. There isn't enough baby powder in the entire state to handle dress casuals on an August morning...
Respectfully, it mentions Herman in the body of this post.
WE LOVE YOU, BRAXTON!!! It is an honor and a privilege to watch you play! ***knee***
I think his point is that, specifically, there are a million places to go that AREN'T Vegas where you don't have to be 21 to 'ride all the rides'. Vegas is fun if you're an adult. It isn't like it is pretty or has an amazing beach. You're pretty much left out if you're a minor in Vegas. So, to answer your question, anyone who isn't 21 should probably take a free trip elsewhere.
I like being the team expected to lose. I believe it gives the players something to focus nervous energy on, and definitely prevents cockiness. It seems like players are less likely to get lippy the night before the biggest game and do something stupid...like guarantee a win (a la Terry Glenn) and give the opponent bulletin board material.
If the team plays like they did against Wisconsin, they can beat any team in the country, on any field.
Uh...didn't I say that?
Oh, gaddaaaaam. I was a little bummed to read that Sweat pledged himself a Seminole. Though it would have been GREAT to have that kid attend a school where he could REALLY learn how to be a linebacker (and terrorize some B1G QB's in the process), I think I'm pretty happy with the Raekwon noise for the next couple seasons. Salve for my wounds? Stealing this kid stands alone. And landing him from TTUN just sweetens the deal. This is a huge flip. Muck Fichigan. (PS: I'm aware that Sweat is a DE...but he's a born LB)
Beating 'Bama is a daunting task, but by no means beyond the scope of reasonable expectations. Accomplishing that, I hope the Buckeyes can stay focused enough to face Oregon...downright scary. GO BUCKS!
The column (and EVERYTHING else online) clearly says that the Bucks wear away whites for all playoff games. What is the confusion here?
Pretty clearly states that the Buckeyes, as the #4 team, will be wearing the away whites throughout the playoffs.
There would be something fitting about whuppin' the Tide naked. Uniforms be damned.
We are at an incredibly exciting juncture in the college football world. Not only are we part of the first playoff (albeit, flawed) in history. Not only have we taken every benefit possible and capitalized on it to bring everything to the forefront at the right time. Not only do we have a team that undeniably belongs in this four-team breakdown.
We stand on the crossroads of sporting history, the stuff legends are made of. I can hardly name a more unlikely national champion than our 2002 team...squeakers and games made by AMAZING Jenkins catches and amazing kicking...but this team is even more unlikely. If we roll up the Crimson Tide and somehow wind up in the final game, can you imagine what we're poised to create?! A team that lost two Heisman candidates and lost one of the best pair of legs in the country along the way comes all the way and garners the Trophy?!! Holy shit. If you don't have goosebumps, you're high.
Time to rid our program of the SEC curse. I'm tired of living in the shadow of a bunch of short-sighted, Johnny-come-lately fans that think the SEC invented smashmouth football. It has been a long time since our conference (and our squad) has garnered national respect (ok...2006 wasn't that long ago, but I puke in my soup every time I read about what a lily this conference has become).
Time to demonstrate true power.
