How deep does it all go?
Well, I guess it would help if I scrolled all the way down. My bad, Jason. I know you are putting a lot of work into this new site. Outside of the drop down issue on the mobile I really dig the new setup. Oh, and it's still FREE! Can't please everyone...you could offer a free back massage while you read this site and someone would complain about the size of the massage therapist's hands.
I have the Galaxy S3, and the only thing I don't like about this new site is that I can't see the Buckshots on my cell. Maybe I've got my phone configured wrong?
This is exactly why I don't too hyped up about recruiting rankings. This kid is 6'5" 238 as senior in high school with one long wingspan. With a great work ethic and superb coaching (wink, wink. Larry Johnson) this kid has all the potential in the world.
I'm no defensive guru, but from my couch it clearly looked like Barnett bit hard on a TE crossing route underneath. As soon as Watkins caught the ball in the endzone Bell turned around like "Dude, wtf?" I doubt the defensive scheme would call for a true freshmen to guard by himself a player of Watkins caliber...but I don't get paid 600k annually either so...
The thing that worries me about the 2014 season is this: if Herman was reluctant to give the ball to El Guapo on 3rd and 4th downs and short, what do you think next year will be like with a stable of largely unproven running backs? I love watching Braxton, but I hope the coaching staff doesn't unnecessarily have Braxton shoulder the majority of the load for the second year in a row.
I will miss watching Hyde always falling forward for 6-8 yards...
With the dawn of Fox Sports 1, I am really hoping that Fox can take away some of the market share from ESPN. The B1G might be putting a lesser product on the field, but we still bring more viewers to the table than any other conference. Let Fox have some of the primetime B1G games as opposed to ABC/ESPN. Delany had to see the SEC/ESPN partnership coming. I think the next decade in college football will be very interesting to say the least with the playoffs and the TV deals.
I find it hilarious that both MSU and OSU are included in events like this before IU, the supposed leader of basketball history in the B1G. Is this because Tom Crean is a turd? ...I think so.
To each their own, but I just think Manziel is just enjoying the spotlight that he earned by winning the Heisman. Did you never get into an altercation at a bar, or carry a fake ID in college? I certainly did. Is he expected to sit in his room all day? He is only 20 years old in college doing what college kids do, drinking, having fun, and occasionally putting his foot in his mouth. So what if he is wealthy and can do more things that the average football player because he won the Heisman?
Maybe I am just biased against TP because as a dog owner I couldn't believe he defended Vick.
A little disappointed with the "race" comment. Johnny Football's biggest mistake (before the autograph situation) is drinking at a frat party, while TP defended a convicted, dog killing felon, attacked arguably the most recognizable college football personality in Herbstreit, and acted like nothing but a prima donna from the the time he stepped on campus. Half of the OSU fan base never got behind TP. I think the color of his skin has absolutely nothing to do with the situation.
Will has been shitting pancakes ever since...
His analysis is exceptional, and it is exactly what worries me. I still think OSU needs another year to develop before they take on Bama. The last thing I want to hear if OSU runs the table and loses to Bama is "The Buckeyes add another trophy as runner-up University...Big Ten still sucks...SEC rules all..."
I can't believe that this awesome kid would pose with Urban Meyer, the scum of the Earth who doesn't care about anyone but himself, for a picture...
All jokes aside, Grant just brightened my day tenfold. Stories like this make you want to live each to the fullest.
I am all for being proud of one's skills and talents, but I find the long snapping "mix tape" hilarious. It reminded me of this Chappelle Show episode...
As a current Centerville resident, this is a pretty cool read. I grew up in Beavercreek a few miles away (terrible football program, great in basketball though). However, it really isn't all that surprising that Centerville and other Dayton area Div I football programs can't break through and win state titles. Dayton shares the playoff region with all the Cincinnati powerhouses, Colerain, Elder, Moeller, St. X. Wayne has come out as the regional champion twice in recent memory, but couldn't finish it off, even with xbrax360. I always root for the local teams (I played for Carroll), but the upper divisions usually fall to the southern teams!
Thank you for putting a positive spin on the affluence of the area, btw. Great read.
I can't wait to hear what Jalen Rose has to say about this game. I think Duke has a few "uncle Toms" coming in this year, including the best hs player in the country.
It is true MD and Rutgers will be making more money, but you are forgetting that this is America. Making more money just means that those athletic departments will spend more. I could be wrong, but giving organizations that have spending troubles more money doesn't necessarily fix the issue. It's more like treating the symptom not the cause.
Can you imagine how much pork that team is going to eat at Montgomery Inn? It's 8:30 in the morning and I am suddenly hungry for ribs...
Here's hoping Grant can become Sabino 2.0. More hype, even slower development, but a higher ceiling once he finally "gets it."
I think for the LBs they should have that picture of Mr. Boren standing over Gardner after he sacked him in The Game last November. That is one of my favorite OSU football pictures of all time. No disrespect to Hawk...that picture is awesome though.
UD alum here. Pretty much the entire UD fanbase is waiting on pins and needles about whether we can get into the new conference or not. It would elevate the program to a level it hasn't been at since the 80s, or if they don't get in it would be pretty deflating with what will be left of the A-10.
Hopefully the sporting gods can give the football team I root for Urban Meyer and let my alma mater get into the Big East! That would almost be too much good fortune for a sports fan from Ohio.
Grammar police on a Friday?
I know I am in the minority here, but I like Crean. He might be annoying/irritating at times, but the dude is doing a great job for IU. A strong IU helps the B1G, which helps OSU.
I hear ya, dubjay. UFM might not be the best comparison, but I just remember the way he whined about how scUM already had their chance to beat OSU to the media and that FL deserved their chance (and with hindsight, that was spot on). Didn't mean to call OSU fans' reaction to Crean hypocritical, I was just trying to make the point that IU fans probably don't mind his actions at all.
