I admit I am one of those people that kind of forgot about him, and I cannot wait to see Booker on the field with Baker and Worley this fall. Good lord this front 7 is going to be a handful.
As a follow up - the actual court is still being used:
Have you driven past the old Richfield Coliseum location recently? You would never even know anything even used to be there. Just an unremarkable field right next to a now seemingly oddly placed highway exit ramp.
Certainly pulling for him, but after this long struggle with the knee issues, I look at anything he can give us in the fall as icing on the cake. Trying to keep expectations very low and hopefully he can surprise us and stay healthy for at least a chunk of the season.
If that is their wish, I will grant it. How can you possibly back Beth Mowins as your play by play announcer with a straight face? Are they that desperate to save cash?
Yea, that's a nice add to a student's resume: "Helped negotiate 50 year, Billion dollar energy deal for OSU".
Yes. I didn't even feel it was that subtle, almost sounds like he is bragging about it. Of course as I read it, I imagined him saying it with a huge smirk on his face and that "you know what I mean" look in his eye.
Conley at 33 would be a steal.
Doing that a third year in a row would have to be a record (hell, doing it 2 straight years might be).
I don't think some people will ever accept it. That being said, I could see another rotation happening with Sheffield at the least, since he has some experience past high school. Arnette would have to be out of this world for some people to not be clamoring for Okudah or Wade in week 1.
But it is always funny to read people's comments about how great some freshmen is going to be in game 1 of his college career when it almost never works out that way. I think Okudah and Wade, etc, will have great careers, but it is going to take time for them to get up to game speed in college.
Yea, I don't see any scenario where Hooker is around at #12, as much as I would love it to happen. Most mock drafts (I know, I know) I have read have him going in the top 6 or 7.
Conley would be a great addition to the Browns, they are in dire need at CB.
You hit the nail on the head - we don't need tons of "wow" moments from the middle, just need to lead the defense, get guys in the right spots and cover your piece of the field. McMillan wasn't a "wow" guy, but extremely effective as the QB of the defense and handling his assignments. Feeling more and more comfortable with Worley moving over to the middle with every passing day.
I second the comment about he WMD's. There is always at least one each day that really piques my interest (and causes me to spend 30 minutes delaying the start of actual work).
I imagine it takes longer to find 4 or 5 decent WMD's each day than it does to write half of the Skully content.
From what I can see, Mickey actually never enrolled at UC-Santa Barbera, so technically he is on his second school. He is now enrolled at Arizona State and will be eligible to start playing in December 2017. So strange that they both have gone through multiple programs.
Reading Mitchell's name made me go on a small "where is he now" quest.
So, we all know he transferred to Texas Tech after redshirting at OSU in 2013, then sat out a year. In 2015 he played sparingly, "racking up" 7 total tackles and decided to transfer out of Tech.
He landed at Southeastern University, an NAIA school in Florida, where his younger brother, Kiwi, was also playing football. He only appeared in 2 games in 2016 and had 5 total tackles. Wondering if he got hurt, but I couldn't find anything on that and got tired of hunting after going down that rabbit hole for 30 minutes. Not exactly how most of us thought his career would play out.
I have heard nothing but good things about Savannah's St. Patty's parade. Just bedlam, in a good way.
Got ya. Just seems odd since it is on a Friday this year. But my only frame of reference is Cleveland and they always do it on March 17, regardless of the day of week.
Wait......the bigger question here is why is the Dallas St, Patty's Day parade 4 days early and on a Monday?
In related news I saw a squirrel this morning.
From what I recall, it was rumored that the team was split on the 2 - some players were backing Germaine to start, others backed Jackson. Seems like Cooper was stuck so he went with the rarely optimal 2 QB system.
Doesn't BeaTTUN have a trademark on "Dude's and Becky's"?
It looks pretty impressive. But my biggest takeaway is that their Director of Recruiting is a guy named Thad Turnipseed. Seriously. Is there a more southern sounding name than Thad Turnipseed? Maybe if it was Beauregard Turnipseed, but that is about it.
Didn't he ultimately end up at New Mexico? Even there I don't think he put up any remotely decent numbers.
Agreed. Took me a second to process it, but great reference. Wonder how many of us actually got it.
