What's a sad commentary on our society is, Urban even with this high level of compensation is not ultra super rich. 87% of the world's total wealth is held by the richest 10% of the population which Urban is not even close to being in. People who are considered to have an ultra-high net worth have at least $50 million US in assets. Globally, this group contains approximately 123,800 people. So this leaves me sad given I have a decent job and make around 90K a year and sometimes still struggle with my family of 7. My salary Its sorta like looking at the size of the universe: my city is large, yet compared to my state its small, which compared to the US is even smaller compared to the world...compared to the solar system....compared to the milky way....compared to BILLIONS of galaxies, etc, etc. That said I sure would give it a try making my annual salary EVERY month or something comparable.
I get your sentiment but apparently there are actual jobs and careers out there that make this kind of dough. I personally have never even sniffed this level of compensation being in the military the past 30 years, but more power to those who make this compensation. It is sorta depressing though.
I'm frustrated with out big men missing 2 footers every game. Would be nice to have big men with some offensive skills. Thompson missed probably 4 lay ins. Hopefully they will improve over the season. Just keeping low expectations so I don't get more frustrated.
Crazy Buckeye fans...always over the top.
I hear you, but playing time is a "thing". As a parent of athletic kids, you want to see them on the field/court to contribute. As a former player, I understand the desire to contribute to the team and get into games, not just "support" the team in practice. My kids nor I were never remotely good enough to play at the Div 1 level but I can understand any frustration that Grandstaff may have had. He was most likely the stud player on his high school team and the transition to riding the pine was probably difficult. Not saying his decision was right or wrong and I hope his transfer works out for him and his plans/goals - I do understand his reasoning though.
After 28 years of marriage I can fully concur with this point.
I'd take the second team in a head to head game. Some really excellent players there. It's a matter of small degrees of separation when it comes to these honors. Congrats to all these fine young men.
Is there any better sport for individual accomplishment than wrestling? Truly great to see so many Buckeyes continuing where we left off after our national championship last season. "you shoot I score, I shoot I score". Love wrestling mentality.
No O line were selected?
But I do love my basket bucks. Old school memories of Kellogg, Ransey, Williams plus not so long ago with Conley and Oden (hard to think that's almost a decade ago). I'm missing those days.
Not sure if Mitchell will want to iron out the issues and return. We sorely need him. He seemed to have a high motor.
I wonder what flashy "pump up" video will be made by the OSU video crew for this week - I envision quiet strings playing in the background, fast cut aways of players crying during the national anthem and Carmen Ohio, some distant shots of rain falling on the Shoe and then about 5 seconds of actual football footage of JT running the ball and getting tackled for a loss. Music raises to a crescendo and a Block O fades....really stirring stuff.
This season was all about last years flash and no actual substance. I understand the coaches are real people and have feelings, but I am disappointed in their performance, especially given the fact they make make mid to high six figure salaries or more (wish I could in my profession). But they live public lives and are subject to this criticism which most I've read tonight is mostly spot on with regards to Beck and Warinner, but most of it needs to land on Meyer. As in the Navy, when the ship sinks or crashes, the navigator isn't relieved from duty, the Captain is. If I hear Meyer say again tomorrow (as he has numerous times this whole season) that "we need to get better" then I'll politely throw up in the corner. After weeks 2 or 3, I'll accept that, not after week 11. You are in charge, make the tough calls (like not vacillating on our QBs), remove the "co" from these two guys and pin the clear responsibility of play calling on one of them.
The sun will rise tomorrow, but what this team does after that will be interesting to read here at 11W this week.
Good comments, but sitting here right now, writing this I cannot force positive thoughts of us winning next week at TTUN. Maybe by Thursday my optimism will return, but its plum out right now.
Ditto - just felt after the 1st quarter it was inevitable. Don't know how many times I yelled at the TV for the JT left, right, middle play calling to the point I gave up and actually felt like the coaches wanted us to lose. Best of luck in the Car Crash Bowl somewhere in the south on Dec 27th...
Sorry this is simply fantasy. I've got some land in *ichigan that's a real steal for ya,,,
As sad as this is to say, if the same player attitude, gameplan and coaching appears next Saturday, then we will get waxed by TTUN and we are playing in some Florida Car Crash Bowl....
I personally think Herman should consider taking the VT job (with USC Trojans as a close second). 1) Great football tradition/history 2) in a weak ACC where you'd immediately vault to the top of the conference after one year and 3) great fan base that shows up to games. I wonder though if Herman would leave Houston after only 1 year though.
I can't see where anyone would disparage Urban Meyer (yes looking at you Florida guy or others who were critical of him after he came back after a year). Quality person, one I'd love my child to play for for sure.
...and people are never satisfied. As CC says, "Come on Man!" WRT criticism of this fine rendition. Better than you and I could do I'd bet.
Up vote this a 1000 times for all the 18 yr old "kids" currently deployed and putting it on the line. They certainly understand consequences to their actions - like life and death. I give no passes to 18-22 yr olds in college.
I vote Coach Johnson to make more.
Why is anyone surprised about this? Cleveland is disfunctional as usual. Probably the Steelers or Ravens will pick him up and he'll come back a world destroyer.
Poignant. Emotional. Memory inducing of both my father in law and my Dad, both of which I no longer can call or watch games with. I love them both.
Brent Mussberger to me (old guy admittedly) means "big game". His voice is legendary - "you are looking live..." etc. With him on a game, it meant something special. Certainly as he has aged he has slipped some, but in the past 30 years, Brent Mussberger meant the game you were watching was something you wanted to watch. Is he Vin Scully level, no (no one is), but he is one of the most recognizable voices in sports and someone to respect and admire. 99% of all of us couldn't do any better.
Love me some Two Steps From Hell music. Always a good fit. Go Bucks!
