"Demure" means shy or coy in a feminine way.
They've still got a shot at Iman.
"You Don't Know Schmidt"
What's with the juvenile wordplay? It's disrespectful to our newest recruit.
Whew! BIG relief.
Now, Malik McDowell, Come On Down Big Fella!
I really hope that's not true.
Big Hearted People getting together to have fun and do good things for people in need makes for a really nice Buckeye Christmas article.
Three Cheers to "Eat Too," its continuing success, and the good people behind it!
This is going to add some starch into the "D" before long.
So glad to have a great kid like Raekwon on board. Comes from a Great Family too. Wonderful combination.
WELCOME TO BUCKEYE NATION!
It means exactly what I said. Not all 15 year olds are equally mature. Some are still caught up in more childish pursuits, blow with the winds of whatever is around them, are only about themselves, have no self-discipline or ambition, are only interested in satisfying their immediate (mostly shallow) appetites, have a very limited ability to take a longer view of life, etc. Other 15 year olds are mature enough to rise above a lot of that while still being normal, healthy teenagers and are planning, looking forward to what happens down the road, and preparing for the future. Danny Clark strikes me as the latter which is why I used the word "mature." Still have a problem with it? People who are DV-ing me for my comment have the opposite problem; a lack of maturity.
I like it a lot! The kid is ALL Buckeye and he knows where he wants to be after three more years. Gotta love that kind of maturity, focus, and direction.
Buckeye Nation is getting a good one but we'll have to be a little patient first.
Welcome Aboard Danny!
They didn't get Vonn Bell.
My opinion is that Hyde will punished for putting himself into that situation in the first place, then not just walking away once it escalated (by her) into something physical.
Sounds like a quality young man all around. So glad to have him in Scarlet and Gray for the coming years!
The 2014 OL class is shaping up to be Great! Can't Wait.
If he slapped her then I'd bet on a few games suspension at the least, even if she doesn't press charges.
Meech! Fantastic News! Really giving us a lift when we were down too.
You ARE going to be a leader in a special 2014 group, that's pretty clear.
Can't wait to see you in action!
I would hope that Urban & Co. would accept a commitment from EGW whenever EGW is ready.
No, I appreciate being corrected if I got it wrong. Upvote given. A punch in the face is definitely a LOT more serious. Thanks.
Where does it say that he hit her in the face?
Good stuff still happens between 10pm - midnight. It's after midnight where most of the problems kick in.
I thought he shoved her with his elbow and she fell down because of it? He's a strong guy needless to say and a lot of women aren't. I've read different accounts. Let's wait for the facts before judging.
Either way, this is a big blow to the team and this year's expectations, esp. with Roby involved too.
At 2am no less! There should be a 12am curfew for players perhaps. Probably not possible but if only....
To those saying that the loss of Hyde isn't so bad, I disagree. He was the reason we won a few of those close games and he was a beast in the win over Michigan. You don't just fill in the next name and expect experience and production like that. Not even close....
Great article, really enjoyed it. Thanks.
Good Point. I think Elliot is going to be an absolute stud when he hits The Shoe in a year or two.
"Everyone showing no love to this commitment..."
Really? I see ONE guy showing no love, a couple on the fence respectfully, and the vast majority approving enthusiastically.
Does there really need to be unanimous 100% agreement for every accepted offer here on 11W?
I don't agree with Ghost's sour take on this at all but I also don't like the idea that one can't express a contrary opinion without being attacked or threatened with banishment.
If Stephen Collier even reads any of this (not likely), he isn't going to care what ghostofwoody thinks. He already knows he has to prove himself and the doubters can only fuel his fire to do just that.
I agree on the leadership aspect. CRITICALLY important in a quarterback! Sounds like Collier has it.
Stephen Collier does sound like a very smart, talented, flexible, focused, and grounded young man. It's hard to go wrong with those qualities.
