I saw Nuerenberger on the official roster with Trout as not having a number, any word on the kicker?
I'd like to see him go to #25, his HS number at Harding.
Forget conference affiliation, which coaching staff do you think is better for a talented prospects football career? Enough said. UK coaches will either be horrible like every regime they have had since... I don't know the beginning of time, or they will have short lived success and bolt for a better and more stable gig.
I would love to see Mark Stoops have short term success at Kentucky minus Glenville kids and get a better offer. Perhaps replace that overpaid guy at Iowa. Brother Bob played there, just playing connect the dots.
I'd rather have a Thursday night game on BTN each week. Let the High School kids have their stage. I'm all for some Friday night Maction though.
11 warriors is the only site I have a profile on. My wife set me up an instagram account for kids pictures. That's about all I have. I agree on the facebook thing. In my opinion it just perpetuates immaturity through connecting you to people from your youth. Sure I miss my friends from HS and from my football team, but most of us have grown apart and have our own lives. I guess I feel like a part of the responsibility of being an adult and a parent is to remove yourself from your youth so that you can focus on your children and not what everyone else is doing. I've always felt like a part of becoming an adult was leaving a lot of that stuff behind so you can move forward. Man I really feel old. I remember having a myspace page when that was in its prime, and I thought it seemed so superficial and fake. The feeling I get from facebook is that its a faux back patting session that never seems to end.
I thought that's what people used facebook for. I'm 31 and don't use either. I use the internet for news purposes and hobbies, but I have always been afraid to have a social media account because of how it seems like a huge distraction. I see people everywhere with their faces buried in a cell phone typing away and I just find it sort of sad. I get it, this is the future of technology and newspapers and magazines are dead etc. I just think twitter seems like an odd way to basically say whatever you want to anyone in the world with no consequence. The problem isn't always the technology, but putting it in the hands of the common population seems to be the issue. Combine that with sports fandom and stuff like the OP posted is what you will always get. There will always be some double digit IQ out there making a general population or group look foolish. It just seems like there is no accountability for anything anymore when it comes to the media and internet. Sorry if I come off as whiny or old man like. It's just frustrating. I feel like all the social media stuff is just unhealthy and as killing off human interaction. Just my opinion.
Does anyone else think the whole idea of twitter is ridiculous? It just seems like a way to troll anyone in the world. I cannot imagine myself having any interest in texting a 17 year old kid about anything, let alone trash talking. Sorry for the old man rant. I understand recruiting guys like Brim having a legit use for it. But why not leave it at that. I trust him to keep our fanbase in the know.
I agree. The rumors I have heard is that he won't ever coach for ttun because they essentially told him he was under qualified coming out of San Diego. He was offended and more upset they went with Richrod who doesn't get the history and tradition of the program, not to mention runs a different offense. I always thought it was sort of ironic that Tressel came from the FCS ranks and was one of the best coaches in our history, and Harbaugh comes from the same level, ends up in the NFL and will probably go down as a great NFL coach. My guess is that ttun will look back at what could have been when they told Jimmy no thanks, and regret that mistake for years. Especially if Hoke falters.
I wonder if he is any relation to Dewey? Man that kid was a jerk in school.
Honestly I think the Browns could afford to lose a few good picks if it meant they got a coach who would get more than 5 years to build. Say what you want about Jim Harbaugh, the guy is an excellent coach. I for one am happy he is a pro and not at ttun. I think with the current roster the Browns have it would be tough for him, but Hoyer is a solid plug in or bridge QB for now. With Harbaugh coaching the Browns this upcoming season I could easily see 8+ wins for sure, and the future would be bright. I wish I had the confidence to say that about anyone they have hired since '99. Mike Pettine will have his shot to prove us all wrong, and certainly to defy the curse around the franchise. Remember, with Pettine the Browns have to strike gold on draft day. With Harbaugh they could afford less draft value because free agents want to play for a winning coach. I'll take Jimmy for 5 years and our current roster plus a couple 3rd rounders. His ceiling is much higher and he has proven himself at every level. In the NFL you take that all day.
I think about that a lot. Imagine if we screened over 100k fans. Yelling contest for your ticket. I can't imagine how loud any stadium could be if you packed it full of hardcore fans. Would be a special environment for sure.
We need to put the student section on the away sideline. Also, having fans that are louder would help the whole atmosphere. It seems to get quieter each season in the Shoe. Hope we can fix it. Sometimes I wish Urban would call out our fans to get people to get fired up and yell. I've never understood the quiet fans. Making noise is the only way you can actually help your team on the field to give them an advantage, why would you not at least do that. To me it's a part of the responsibility that comes with buying a ticket. Sorry about the rant.
Neutron man was the only superfan I ever felt was cool or acceptable, all the guys after him were sort of rip offs and took themselves too serious imo.
Perfect. Rod Smith can handoff the #2 jersey to him.
Total crapshoot in my opinion. I have a feeling Rutgers will have more long term success. I feel the talent pool is deeper in NY/NJ. Both programs are stepping stones and probably at best going to be 5-7 wins max teams going forward. If Shiano is still coaching Rutgers they would be a legit threat. I still feel like Rutgers could be a sleeping giant if they could hold down their own backyard from a recruiting standpoint. Lots of talent in Jersey/NY.
I think it would be cool to actually have a picture of the helmet sticker next to the voting option. jmo
Is that Carrot top behind him?
The party was set up by the football staff to cut down roster spots. It was a total sting operation. Butch is upset that only 3 players were busted. Knoxville police botched it, now 10 more players will have to retire due to "medical reasons".
Check out that jersey hanging in the locker.... sharp!
Does anyone else think taking a QB in the first round is a mistake? I feel like Hoyer can do enough to keep them competitive, but any QB the Browns draft is set up for failure much like Tim Couch was. I realize Gordon is a gem, and Cameron is an excellent TE, but with an average OL and no running back or any other legit receivers it just seems like a rookie QB isn't the answer. If for some reason a QB fell into the 2nd round then I would take one. I'm just afraid we will end up with another version of Weeden. They cannot afford to whiff on these high picks.
My favorite part was changing the recruit names or skin tones to realistically fit the names. I remember once recruiting a Cornerback from Los Angeles named Lawrence Washington... he was a skinny ginger white boy. Made me laugh.
I'd like to see more guys get away from the single digit number that play LB or DL. I just think 30's and 40's numbers look tough. I get kids and trends and all, but I'm ready for the trend to swing back. It was refreshing seeing Hyde wear 34, Bosa with 97, Powell with 23, and Perry with 37. Single digits are getting old and over-done. I like how Bennett wears 63. Just and old ugly ass number no one wants. I like it. He is probably one of the only D-lineman in the country wearing that number.... to me that is cool and unique. If I were ever in these kids shoes I would want to leave my own footprint. Like Berger wearing 39 for example. I cannot think of a single Buckeye player through the years that wore that number and made an impact. He would have a chance to make everyone remember that number the way Hawk did with 47. The only 39 I can remember doing anything was Jamar Martin at fullback.
