"We" for me. I went to Ohio State, have spent a lot of money on tuition, and tickets. I cried multiple times as a child in the 90s when we lost to TTUN. I have however mellowed a lot. I can handle a loss without getting over emotional and calling for everyone to lose a job/position after a loss or bad performance.
I think if you are/have been a lifetime buckeye, I'm cool with we. However Walmart buckeyes, I'd rather not have that association
I'm glad Lee feels this way...but as a fan who does nothing but slam bud heavies during games, I WON'T MOVE ON
Hamilton will be okay. He said he's going to drop switch hitting and focus on one side of the plate which should help. It's so much fun watching him when he actually gets on
Literally nothing is wrong with Votto. People just expect him to live up to his enormous contract. Dudes still one of the best hitters around. He was on base 9 times yesterday in the DH. He's incredible
While I always enjoy a good Saban bashing, didn't Plaxico at one point basically shoot himself in the dong?
Those zeke highlights give me enthusiasm unknown to mankind
I like the landers pick. Ohio kid who didn't get an offer til late, probably has a big chip on his shoulder and is going to go hard. When do the PC police catch wind of this and shout hazing?
How many of those 5% weren't from cinci though? This is way overblown and we aren't thinking about all the outta towners in cinci for all star festivities
Keep in mind, this is an all star weekend down here. There aren't just cinci folks at this event. You think a tigers fan or a brewers fan are big urban fans? You can't just lump them all in as UC people this weekend. Some salty tigers/ttun fans probably had their chance to let it rip. I think the overwhelming cheers over boos kinda prove that the cinci crowd was behind papa urbz
This happens at every major program, even NW and Stanford. You have your academic expectations, and youre required to meet them, while also meeting your football standards. When I was in college, I couldnt call off work because I needed to study... had to manage my time so I could do both. (I realize that opens a can of worms and it isn't exactly the same thing, but you get it)
I don't think you're wrong necessarily...but I prescribe to the urban meyer walk away theory. A) willing to bet he wasn't innocent in the females initial punch b) after she punches, you have to have the wherewithal to say "hey I'm a high profile athlete, I need to get the hell outta here" no matter how right or wrong your anger is
I can believe it. Remember, Vrabel almost murdered Bollman during the hell year because his offense sucked so bad. Vrabel is a bad ass dude, urban probably jumped his shit because the d wasn't up to par, and Vrabel with emotions high after the worst of losses probably fired back. It happens. I'd agree w the earlier post as well saying he's probably better off as an NFL coach, but all indications are he still loves his Alma mater which is all that matters
I'm willing to bet he saw the other FIVE scholarship QBs throwing and realized for the time being he might be #6, then said check please, ran over to Zach Smith and the rest is history
What're we worried about? A) he and everyone else have said he's staying B) if he does go somewhere else, I think we're okay. You know the whole JT and Cardale thing. Plus having 3 other 4*+ QBS behind them....I'd love Braxton, and think this is nothing more than a formality, but either way, we're good lol
I love Jim tressell. But it's a shame that you're going to take his back and continue to throw TP under the bus. Johnny football and Winston committed much worse violations. Dude got what he deserved. He couldn't finish his college career and he's paying for it now in the NFL. Give him a break and quit with the double standard
What an awful crop of quarterbacks. When Jay Cutler is the best you got...that's rough
Well supposedly everyone knew but the public that he wasn't coming
We're gonna be just fine. Expect a less frustrating version of last year. A 7-10 seed w a young team that plays hard all of the time, and has playmakers all over.
Really enjoy watching the women play. It's a little slower, but the skill is similar and there is less flopping
This is just begging for an NCAA violation. Giving kids bling that they probably don't want. Can't wait for "Ole Miss players under investigation for selling Peach Bowl participation rings"
Crazy that a guy who might not start is on magazine covers. So loaded
Look, if it comes out in 5 years that OSU is/was dirty and doing kids wrong, fine. if dean ends up being a monster, good for him, glad he could realize his dream. Otherwise, I'm all about the "I'm gonna worry about who's here" train of thought. Unfortunately, Dean didn't work out, he's in a great program, so even if we did him dirty, which seems weird that we wouldn't want a kid that auburn would die for, he landed on his feet. Stop
"Backing up into horford"...? You mean...boxing out?
Thank you for your service! Tough question to answer, that's for sure.
When I was in school the year we won the NIT, we played Cal at St. Johns. That place was insane for an NIT game!!! What would it take to move some of the small games (i.e. James Madison, Campbell) to St. Johns? and keep the big attendance boosters (i.e. Virginia, wiscy, sparty) at Schott to accomodate the bigger crowds. I'm sure there is something in the contract, but that would help. At the Schott you are just so darn far away from the action, it just doesn't feel like a college game.
