Love the guys we already got in Columbus, but really excited to see what Knox and Jamarco bring to the table.
Of the various points you made, the last one was probably the most useful. I also think you are stretching by suggesting "what if the kid in the video isn't Jayru?" Fine, we weren't there, we don't have definitive proof, but when all signs point to yes, breaking out some sort of Inception/Matrix type defense isn't going to be useful against common sense. Another point: just because someone isn't charged or is found not-guilty does not mean they didn't do something wrong/commit the alleged crime; if that were the case, Hyde wouldn't have received any type of punishment. IMO, unless the kid was in any type of serious danger of being injured by being told to remove his hood, then he didn't just over-react, he reacted to a degree that is off the charts. "Remove your hood." No (proceeds to body slam the person). In the words of Ron Burgundy, "That escalated quickly." Jayru has a slight history of anger issues including this pretty barbaric act, no offense to Dantonio, but I highly doubt Meyer would still be interested in this kid. One final note: there are varying degrees of Assault. I'd find it hard to believe that the security guard posed any type of serious threat to Jayru that warranted being suplexed, so unless Jayru and his lawyer can pull a true self-defence defence out of their ass, this kid is guilty of some form of assault; no vindication.
think it happens later rather than sooner, but it happens by mid season
well, I'm sure if the scholarship was pulled it would be reported, same way we find out if kids get offered. OSU doesn't come out and say: "we offered so and so."
Ill be surprised if we make the sweet 16. Even if we somehow win the B1G tourney, our NCAA tourney matchup in the 2nd round won't be a favorable one. Suppose its more about taking the lesser beat down as I think Syracuse would embarrass us with the zone and their inside play.
I still have no idea how MSU hasn't revoked his scholarship. I get giving kids a second chance to turn it around, but it wasn't like he shoplifted, he body slammed another person over nothing…er, allegedly.
I can't tell if this result is more about the B1G being really good with loads of parity, or OSU being the most bipolar team in history. Just imagine though if we had an inside game and/or high-school level three point shooting.
just that kind of year for us
Given the fact Nebraska basketball is much more relevant now, the realignment has had more of an impact on basketball (may be due to just how good our conference is in the sport as compared to football). I wonder what it will do for both football and bball will the additions of Rutgers and Maryland. Will those two programs improve in football and make an impact on the rest of the B1G, will both improve (getting Maryland back to being a top program) in basketball and add further depth to the B1G? Nebraska's addition in football has really done nothing. They played in the B1G title game in 2013, but were destroyed by Bert and a Wisconsin team that was 3rd in the division. I expected Nebraska to be what Michigan State is, a legit player in recruiting and can challenge for the B1G and a BCS berth yearly. Sadly, they have been really nothing more than a decent team. Football wise, I don't think Rutgers will be that relevant in the B1G. They haven't been too terrible over the last decade, but they are still Rutgers and outside of an upset or two, I don't think they will make too much noise in the near future. They have a ton of high school talent in NJ, but its rare that you hear Rutgers signing any of the truly elite players in their home state. Maryland has a chance to improve itself as the state also has some great talent and if they can keep them at home, could cause problems for the B1G powers that will occupy the Eastern Division. IMO, Maryland is a more attractive destination for recruits than Rutgers, so I give them an edge in the ability to draw better talent. The issue for Rutgers and Maryland in football is an obvious one, the East is absolutely stacked. If Michigan can get back to being Michigan after a decade of underachievement then you figure: Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Penn State are too damn tough to be passed by Rutgers or Maryland. If either of those two finish in the top 3 in the division at any point, they should consider that to be a fantastic year. I think in the West, Rutgers and Maryland could very well push for a Division Title every so often, but it won't happen in the East unless all four of Michigan, MSU, OSU, and PSU have terrible seasons. Thus, if they do make an impact, it'll be basketball, where there is a ton of parity in the conference and even a school like Nebraska can be relevant.
good idea. Put ego aside and work towards improving yourself. Kind of ironic that we are teaching them who to run the ball better, yet we refused to give Hyde the ball down the stretch of both of our losses.
program's going in the right direction. B1G hockey is awesome.
this playoff race is going to be just as tight as last year. Hope the Jackets have luck on their side this year.
Be nice to push for a College World Series spot every few years. Although warm weather states dominate, don't see why OSU can't compete with the big boys of baseball every year.
potentially 3 first round picks in Shazier, Roby, and Hyde. Ill still slot Carlos in the 2nd round. Mewhort late 2nd rounder. Not a bad group for this class of players. Buckeye back to owning the draft.
so strange to see berry
kind of amazed that 'new' social networking apps actually get popular when Facebook generally takes care of everything. This turd just took Facebook's original point--being for college students only--and put it into a different app.
any tidbits about the WR's/RB's. Althought I am intrigued by the OL and how the backup QBs are doing, Im particularly interested in who we give the ball to on offense with having to replace Philly, Hyde, etc. WR should be a very entertaining competition.
Damn, Bell needed a big spring to get some momentum for the fall.
spongebob eh...someones definitely smoked quite a bit of the weed
