He was very impressive in all of the B1G Media Day stuff I watched. Never a "Ummmm" or other stutter from him when asked questions. Always on message and articulate. It was easy to see why he was chosen to go.
On the one hand I want Herman in the B1G because I'd like the B1G to be awesome. On the other hand if Herman never ever coaches anyone but the Buckeyes in the B1G I think I'd be okay with that.
Brown's injury was a noncontact one? On the one hand "Whew" there isn't a teammate beating himself up over it. On the other the whole "everyone looked kicked in the guts" now has perfect clarity for me.
As in the fire truck is a brewery.
All sorts of college events are poorly organized. There is usually some staff person to open up the building and bring the check for whoever outside the college coming in needs to get paid but otherwise the event is being run by students running their first event. That none of them end up total disasters isn't often on the student organizers.
Why would it have to be a platoon within the game system? How about a week to week platoon. JT on the even weeks and Cardale on the odd weeks. Not a series to series or quarter to quarter thing. Each guy gets half the starts. They both then have to keep taking care of their business week to week.
Or week to week with a pick a guy for what they want to emphasize with the week's gameplan.
The depth chart would be: Jones/Barrett and Jones/Barrett/Collier. Two first string guys and three second string guys?
If you stand there and pose like Daniel in Karate Kid, it isn't going to work (see Karate Kid II.) It has just as much a chance to work as any other fake with one side hit 'em with the other does. Machida got Couture moving away from the feint with the left leg and cracked him with the right leg.
Coach Meyer has also flat out said you won't know who the starter is till gametime on the seventh. I get the impression that TTUN Staff have left the whole thing up in the air. The reporters don't need to ask because Coach Meyer has given them an answer. These guys just keep dancing around it.
It's just to keep him presentable to the public. Takes just enough of the edge off to keep him in one place to be interviewed.
I've read a bunch of those and I'm no Steelers fan but that was a new level of vitriol.
This is a whole new level of coachspeak.
Do you expect that they’ll announce that quarterback before the first snap against Utah?
“I would think so, yeah. I think so when you start your first game you have to do that, yeah.”
No, I meant outside of the program, sorry.
Outside of the program, will they announce—will we know who that quarterback is before the first snap at Utah?
“At some point in time somebody will announce it, yes.”
How hard is it to say, "We won't announce the starter till gametime." No one will then care if you tell folks before that. As far as getting your staff on message goes that one should be really easy.
Just finished all those up myself. Pretty funny stuff. I especially liked the Veridian Dynamics adverts.
When more of your soldiers and veterans are dying from suicide than dying in the field, "horrible" doesn't begin to cover the way we're treating our veterans. The worst part is it has ever been thus. "Land of the free. Homelessness for the brave."
I'm hoping they dial back the shaky-cam horribleness. For as good as the story was they really drug it down with the presentation in some parts. There was a whole episode that I only listened too. So on the one hand I'm excited for whatever they've got coming up next but not excited for the headache I'm likely to get watching it.
I think Bernthal will be pretty good as Punisher.
"The Walking Dead" (TWD) started more or less after the zombie movie and the zombies won. This one is going to be a drawn out or comprehensive zombie movie depending on your POV. I liked the pace of the show but evidently there are going to be/are a lot of folks who think it is slow.
I thought there were some neat things in it. Really liked the old guy passing and the doctors in a panic to get him out of sight. The bits with leaked videos and internet rumors. The teacher more or less blind to what's going on outside her little world.
Hopefully they don't get worse with the shaky-cam but it seems unlikely.
That is not correct. Lyoto Machida knocked Randy Couture out with the move.
Kerri Russell is all that and a bag of chips. Stone Cold.
"The Americans" is one of the best shows on TV. This past season was terrific. I love all the actual trade craft with disguises and manipulating and blackmailing people and the con games.
And that actress who plays Nina is smoking hot.
Not on Netflix though.
Ash and Fickell are on the same page. Fickell and Withers were on the same page to a degree because I think Fickell is a team first guy. But even before things really got off the rails Fickell was talking about how the scheme wasn't the best one for the guys. "We don't want them to think. We want them to react and make plays" or words to that effect from Fickell. Withers's scheme/s was too much thinking.
I think Fickell was putting forth recommendations to do it like they're doing now but was overruled by Withers (with Coach Meyer's backing.) He did as he was told but kept sticking to his guns for why they weren't getting the results they wanted. After the TTUN, MSU, Clemson run Coach Meyer "saw the light" and made the change.
FIckell is as much responsible for the improvement as Ash is. That's my $0.02 anyway.
If you're interested in Walking Dead give it a shot. The general consensus is the second season is a bit slow (I disagree) but it is pretty neat stuff overall. It is popular for many good reasons.
"Daredevil" is pretty good if you like comic book stories. It is quite a faithful adaptation of DD to screen. There are some terrific action sequences. D'nofrio as Kingpin is excellent.
So, how do you get invested in the characters if you don't know anything about them? The stuff you're talking about losing patience with is typically considered the "substance" and the action is considered the fluff. Part of the point is to give a good look at these people before it goes to hell. The story is how the end of the world as we know it changes people. It is important to see what they were like before.
No wonder so much stuff seems to just move from action set piece to action set piece. Audiences have no patience.
Yep. I was saying. Just in time to keep the enthusiasm the Buckeyes are giving me for this fall in check with regards the pro teams in Ohio.
Well that one's on Dalton. Well at least the Buckeyes should be decent.
How does he not catch that? Not sure how that one is on Dalton.
I liked the slow burn of the whole thing. The hard part is we have all the information and the people in the show don't. So that's going to create some weirdness with perception of the pacing.
Hated all the shaky-cam. Really wish that horribleness would go away.
