What could have been with Blake Thomas. Dude was a wrecking ball.
Purdue had a really small senior class in 2015 and I don't think anyone declared early. A good friend of mine was an All-American O-Lineman there, and he is the most objective College Football fan/person that I've ever met and for that reason, I can't hate the Boilermakers.
Love talking with him about the recruits he hosted when he was an upperclassman there....namely, one Mike Tomczak.
Lets predict his freshman stat line.
3851 passing yards, 39 TDs 8 INTs, 987 rushing yards, 80 tackles, 9 INTs, 13 sacks, 12/14 FGs made....
I will personally help the bagmen down there load Gary's car. Go Tigers.
Poor little guy
Yeah, I thought it was implied that it was Pantoni
I still have the Plain Dealer sports section with that on the cover. Its in my OSU shrine.
I was watching that play and before I even saw the name or number, I saw the tucked-chin style running and knew it was him. Its scary how much faster Teddy is than everyone on the field...
I was at that game. Stubhub crammed most of the OSU crowd up in the upper reserve 100's section. Didn't see much myself, and aside from the heckling and threats as I got on the SATA bus, I didn't experience much blowback as far as bottles or overly intoxicated fans.
+1. That response really rubs me the wrong way.
I'm strongly considering leaving this state forever. Water crisis, shitty roads, worse drivers, sub-par career opportunities....and of course that thing you go north til you smell and west until you step in.
I always shake my head at the people here that badmouth Ohio all the time. I tell them to look around at the 7 inches of snow, the abomination of what we call "roads", the dilapidated buildings downtown in Detroit that aren't safe to walk past after a sporting event, and the constant crises and crime on the evening news. Yeah, its Ohio. Its horrible.
I'm not of much help here, but I gotta chime in an give your license plate a solid "A".
You'll definitely never see me capitalize it...
I kinda have a close mutual friend with Fick. He is 100% Buckeye. People don't realize how much he loves this school and the team. I can believe this completely.
I had some bad hot dogs last night, so I didn't see a lick of the game. Was in and outta the bathroom taking a michigan all night.
Some crazy fluctuations in here. Northwestern dropped 11 spots? Yikes.
Never thought I'd see the day when AJ Hawk became my 2nd favorite Buckeye of all time.....but its here
They had quite a few players get drunk drivings over the last few years. Stonum and Frank Clark come to mind....
Whenever Brionte gets the ball, he runs like he is on fire and the only thing that can put it out is a first down. I've been very impressed with almost every run he has had. I think it's him.
I'll shamefully admit that I read that site on occasion. They joke about Urban "having more health problems" and "heart trouble" when their very own coach had a cardiovert 3 years ago.....I would be shocked if I wasn't already aware of their hypocrisy.
He deserves to be in, IMO. I am pretty sure a lot of those records won't be touched since no one capable of putting up those kind of numbers sticks around CFB long enough to do it.
Wish him all the best, but this kind of reminds me of Bill "Spaceman" Lee's speech when he left the MLB....
This guy WANTS to be a Buckeye, badly. These are the kind of players we need.
I lost all respect for Brian Kelly after the way he left Cincinnati. He did them dirty, and right before a huge bowl game for them.
That makes 2 legendary DEs in a row that have missed their final games. Simon and Bosa.
