yea, TG could commit and people would bitch about us not getting Sweat shortly after.

If we reinstate him, he must bear the username 9accounts.

Off topic, but does anyone know why Carlos Hyde isn't wearing #34  It's not retired and no one is wearing it.

James has a history of dislocating his elbow I believe. I remember him doing it once at Oregon, pretty nasty.

It would be hilarious if we let 9route stay active, see how long he lasts. Maybe we can all just learn to deal with 9route.... pretend he isn't bipolar. Better yet change his name to 9accounts.

My favorite 9route thread is the one where he was talking to the foreign guy with terrible grammar and they were complaining about American women. Probably the hardest I have laughed reading anything on here.

I hate being negative, but I really could see him heading to Notre Dame. Fort Wayne seems to be a pipeline to South Bend and South Lafayette. I know we snagged Rod Smith from Harding, but ND tends to clean house in the Fort, especially with the Catholic schools like Luers and Dwenger. He seems like a very legit prospect though. Will be fun to see where he ends up. He'll play for one of the big 3 for sure IMO.

Let's not forget about Rob Kelly. He was an underrated player in my opinion. I think he was overshadowed by the guys around him. He had 4 career INT's for the Saints. Injuries cut his career short. Solid player for the Buckeyes.

I'd love for him and Cager to come together. I think if Gibson, Cager, Jefferson, and Richmond all do play together, I hate saying it, but I could see them at Tennessee. Two of them are from Tennessee, zero from Ohio. They would have a great chance to all play early in Knoxville. I don't think its the best move for them, I really don't think Butch Jones will get more than another 2 years before he is canned. I cannot see Tennessee turning it around anytime soon. I would never rule out Auburn. Malzahn is a great coach and QB guru, I think in that regard Auburn can hang with anyone. I'd love for all four of these guys to come play for Ohio State, but I won't be shocked if we don't get any of them either. Fingers crossed.

Man, I'd take an offer from Frank Beamer any day if I couldn't get my dream offer.

Comment 26 Jul 2014

I agree, they hire someone who came under a bunch of criticism. Easy to push someone around who was just fired and happy to have another good job. I'm confident this was a move to insure Franklin can run the show. I'm sure if she tries to do anything against their agenda she will be on a very short leash.

Hoyer wants it more than anything in the world, Johnny wants it bad to, it's just not quite as important to him as Brian. Ideally I wish both guys success. I don't care which one ends up being the guy as long as they earn it and play great. If Manziel sits for 2 years and the Browns turn it around with Hoyer, I'd still root for Johnny if we dealt him. Unless he went to Dallas maybe.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

If anyone in the Browns organization really thought Manziel was going to do a 180 and change kidding themselves. The kid has Ryan Leaf written all over him. Silver spoon. It will take him a few years on the bench for him to realize what he's doing to himself before he awakens, if he even does. I'll be the first to admit I'll cheer for him if he plays well, and makes an effort to tone it down a little. In the same breath I'm really pulling for Hoyer to be the guy. He's doing and saying the right things, and clearly football and his team are the most important things to him right now. Hard not to like a guy like that.

If he thinks living like Joe Namath is going to get him anywhere he is setting himself up for failure. I honestly think the kid can be a great talent in the league, but you can have all the talent in the world but if his head isn't in it, its all for not. I'm rooting for him to become a man. If you want attention become a legend, represent a city dying for a star QB, become a man young and live beyond the hype. Right now the media is winning. They want their new Tebow. They crave the guy they can talk about nonstop. Don't give them that. Prove the critics wrong. Do it by setting an example by being a leader and a guy people respect outside of football as well.

Usually when I buy scalped tickets I get them well before kickoff. For Illinois I would probably try to lock in tickets before 5 or 6 pm, just to be safe. Very hard to find 3 in a row on stubhub together. It seemed like most scalpers had 3 and 4 together and were usually open to splitting them up.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

Does anyone else think Wisconsin has a real shot at upsetting LSU? That would be huge for the B1G. LSU returns 4 OL and a TE on offense, that's it really. Loaded with 5 star talent, but being week one I really like Wisconsin's chances. Looking at the Wisky schedule, I cannot see them losing any other games.

09 Purdue for me. I live in NE Indiana and work with a bunch of Purdue fans.  That one hurt because I just thought, ahh crappy slow start... typical, but we will come out and smash them in the 2nd half..... kept waiting... Just a terrible game to watch.
