Damon Arnette. Count it.
And Thome. I loved Jim Thome. But yeah, it was an incredible experience for certain. I got to hear all his stories from his days as a PG for Arizona and how his leaping ability made him a better CF and his court vision translated well into field vision so he always knew where the ball was. Very cool guy and had an affinity for his younger fans, and I was by far his biggest fan.
When I was 12, I won a raffle and the prize was a dinner with Kenny Lofton. My mom and I got to spend 4 hours with him and he gave me a real jersey that he had worn (with dirt on it from sliding and stealing a base) that he had autographed and everything. He was so nice and down to Earth. He was, and still is, my favorite player to ever watch play the game. Hes HoF worthy for certain. If Ken Griffey, Jr wasn't playing CF at the same time, I think Lofton would be considered the best CF of the 90s.
You don't have to believe me, the internet is full of people who claim to be anything but what they truly are. I assure you my story is legitimate and would gladly back it up on the court during non-work hours if you are within 50 miles of the Streetsboro area. I'm not as young as I was, but I can still shoot. As I was just helping my little cousin improve his game today, it became apparent I still have some game and the ability to defend the perimeter at an elite level. I was still able to create my own shot, still have an above average crossover, deadly fade away and turnaround jumper, and was still able to bury contested 3's at a high rate. All this against a 16 year old starting small forward that stands 6'6.75". I feel comfortable enough to say I can compete. Please do not misconstrue my comment; there is an absolute zero amount of bad blood. Please forgive me for the delay in my comment. My father passed away and I took an extended hiatus from everything and have been staying with my mother and trying my best to keep her busy.
My career was details by a Vicodin- turned Oxycontin-turned heroin addiction. It all happened so fast, I was out of school by November of my freshman year. Its crazy how fast one prescription can turn your whole life upside down. I am proudly clean since December 27th, 2013. A relapse on December 26th after 2 years, 10 months, and 19 days is the only thing standing in my way of 4+ years clean. Also, I am openly bi-sexual. I wont name any names of schools, but upon learning that, all but 3 scholarship offers were pulled after learning I had a boyfriend.
Oh whale. I thought you did it on porpoise.
I'm pulling for Jordan Speith, because I love his game. I wouldn't be surprised to see Patrick Reed shock the world and win. But, I think Stenson, Johnson, Reed, or Speith take it. Stenson finished hot, appears locked in. Hoping an American takes it though.
Threw you an upvote to help get you there faster.
Remy, you are a true friend to Buckeye Nation. Your hard work is extremely appreciated. Thank you for the fascinating read.
I played ball in high school and had a few walk-on offers at low-mid D1 programs (but my passion is I the culinary arts). As a senior, I had 11 games with at least 40 points and 4 steals, 3.38:1 assist-to-turnover ratio. I played against HORRIBLE competition though. At 6'4 with great perimeter defense and a very fast 3-point shot with good mechanics though, I would look good on the Inactive List never suiting up but taking up a roster spot. My back isn't in great shape though.
This is so well put. I just really appreciate that you give Ohio State credit for having talent. I've engaged with several Alabama fans who believe that Ohio State only beat Alabama because Alabama didn't give their best effort; that Alabama beat themselves and Ohio State merely got lucky. You seem to be willing to admit that on January 1st, 2015, Ohio State was the superior team. You are right, classy brings classy. You are a welcome addition to the 11w family, at least in my eyes. On behalf of the 11w community, I would like to apologize for any of our members who treated you poorly solely for rooting for a team outside of Columbus. Please, stick around. Rivalries are what make this sport so great.
I am so happy for Tom Herman and I hope he brings Houston to new heights. I believe in him. And, I hope he takes the reigns from Urban upon his retirement. But, I believe that when Charlie Strong flames out of Texas in 2-3 years, they will hire Herman and get one hell of a coach and recruiter. He will finish with no more than 3 losses this year, then he will bring forth and undefeated Houston team (with MAYBE one loss at most) and Texas will come knocking. If Texas gets him before we do, I believe we will lose him for good. Regardless, I will always be thankful for Tom Herman and will always be a fan of his. He is a great man and excellent coach.
Side note: Thank you for being a very classy Bama fan, and showing Ohio State deserved respect. You have earned my respect, BamaMike.
We have an All-American Joey B punishing opposing quarterbacks and embarrassing opposing offensive lineman here already.
We made them look slow. Oregon has the speed to take the wind from Alablubber any day.
Joakim Noah is actuall Russian for "ugly as unwiped asshole"
He wont be in the NFL forever. That, and its actually more likely that he never plays a down in the NFL than it is that he gets drafted. Yes, the kid is supremely talented. But, Curtis Grant was the #2 overall recruit out of high school (second only to Jadeveon Clowney) and he has an uphill battle to even crack a practice squad roster. Trey Depriest was "cant-miss" as well, and he wasn't drafted either. Its a smart and mature choice to bet on your education instead of betting on your athletic skills.
EDIT: There's also the possibility (god forbid) that he gets hurt and can't continue playing. It sucks that he wont be a Buckeye, but I have to respect his decision.
We are known for our very high quality burgers and wings and make our money as a place you can feel comfortable coming for family dinner as well as a drink. Angry drunks would be detrimental to the atmosphere we shoot for. As we explore the opportunity to franchise (we have 2 restaurants, will have 4 by next summer, and an expansion plan to see 20 by 2020 if all continues to go well), our mission is to prove that quality does not have to be sacrificed in order to become a chain. We have every intention of being a multi-state chain, but will not do so if it means we cant continue to make our food at the highest possible quality. Dozens of customers have said our food is better than the likes of Winking Lizard, Panini's, Buffalo Wild Wings and other NE Ohio mainstays. By 2020, we hope to be all throughout Ohio and will franchise out once our name carries more weight. Your optimism and glass half-full thinking is truly awesome, my friend. But, unfortunately, doesn't match the family atmosphere we're going for. We are definitely not afraid to cut our customers off or ask them to leave. We don't want the type of crowd that makes parents afraid to bring small children in.
The internet would literally crash. And as a restaurant manager/10% owner, I'd have thrown 6700$ in the pooper.
Larry Kehres from Mount Union (retired after 2012, still AD though
- 92.9 winning percentage over 27 seasons
- 11 National Championships
- 55 and 54 game winning streaks
- 23 conference titles
- 21 Unbeaten regular seasons
- 100 game win streak again conference opponents
- Record holder for greatest 5-season record at 72-3
At any level, 92.9% winning percentage is the record. Both Pierre Garcon and Cecil Shorts III played for him at Mount too
They also picked up Simon Fraser and Reid Fragel as UDFAs
EDIT: Bengals gave Fragel a shot first
I get what hes saying. I have seen "Come to Ohio State or get beat by Ohio State" posted quite often and multiple comments along the lines of " Why would anyone choose to go somewhere else? We just won the Natty!" But, I think the success of our team allows us to ask that question because from a football standpoint, we are #1. That can not be argued. And, from an academic standpoint, we do sit above a majority of opposing institutions. The OP is right about one thing: We should respect a teenagers decision to attend a non-OSU school. Its hard to take off the homer glasses when we just proved ourselves better than any other school, but we should make an effort to do so.
I like "Hunter of Ducks" better. And we should throw in "Father of Tyvis" and "Separator of Shoulders".
I took it as...
We're aware we ruffled some feathers by holding camps in the south, so to avoid NCAA punishment and pretend we aren't afraid of SEC schools, come up here to our camps. Maybe you could teach us something, we have no clue how to beat Urban.
According to Beth Mowin's roster, that would be Rod Jones.
