Moral of the story: "Protect yourself at all times", as in the referee's final instruction to the boxers prior to the bout.
Urban is " The One Who Knocks."
Thanks for the first-hand info, PT.
Nice job, 68.
You are too much, 68. Greatly appreciated.
Good job, BY. Thanks.
Nice job, JPF. Appreciated.
Oregon ranked well below Ohio State in team recruiter rankings. We had the superior athletes.
Until they improve their recruiting, they will never have rings.
I bought Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars in the late 40's, but they were the best basketball sneaker, by far, at that time.
I totally agree with this, Steely.
I don't think Weber has Carlos' speed.
And, so it begins.
Stop it, just stop it.
Couldn't agree more.
To quote Urban Meyer: "It means you are in his top three."
Urban can say they are 100 %, but that means they are medically cleared. We and he will only know for sure when they start hitting during camp, and we can see who is not hitting, or being hit. The final confirmation comes when we actually play the games, and the bullets start to fly. Then we will know if they are really 100%. I hope at least half of them are.
I hope lockdown isn't the same as the dreaded 110%.
1975 should have been Woody's swan song. This was his last super-talented team, and the signs were already there that the game was passing him by. Had he announced his retirement following the Michigan win, I don't think there is any way in hell that Ohio State loses to UCLA in the Rose Bowl, and Woody goes out with Archie, this wonderful group of seniors, and a National Championship. All during that season, I was hoping it would be his last, because I could see nothing but downhill from here on out. I thought it was his last chance to go out on top.
As a high school and small college official, officiating during those years, I can say unequivocally that it was within the officials authority to call a delay of game penalty against MSU. But, my call would have been an official's time-out, teams set, wind the clock. There would have been about 3 seconds for OSU to snap the ball. Whether it would have changed the outcome, we'll never know. Every season we see some of these end of game, end of half, blunders by officials. It seems in the panic of the moment, they forget that they are in charge, and fall into the trap of " Let the teams decid it on the field", no matter what. Thank God, at least one official in the 2002 NC championship game, was not of the "no matter what" school of thought.
Thank you, Charles Dickens.
