I'm a Pistons fan in Orange County. I knew he never make it to pick 8 so I am all types of excited that he got picked by the Lakers I will go catch some games now.
Welp not a laker fan as a piston fan but being in orange county now I can go see russell play.
With the way they have developed players its not a bad choice.
I really believe thats why the 2017 class has started so well. I think he been at work since he was a freshman in highschool.
When he committed I was excited. People that saw him in the state champ game said he was the best player on the field. I love DT like him that play with bad intentions.
from what I heard its all confidence with Clark he hasn't got his mojo back since injury.
The only reason I think Eze has a chance as a RB. The first ever college playoff. Most of america saw him run through the heart of the south then saw him make duck soup. So I think that really really will help him everyone will be watching to see what he does this season.
I actually talked to someone who played against Walker. He said it was the best player he had even seen or played against and it wasn't even close.
It did shut up most the rest of the nation outside of the big 12. The great part though is even though the big went 5-5 the 4 ranked teams went 3-1. I knew that the top big ten teams where either equal or close to the top teams of other confrences. Michigan State shit the bed against Oregon in the second half. Plus Wisconsin forgetting they had Melvin Gordon forth quarter against LSU. Both of these where on the road and should have been wins. I'm glad during bowl season both got them done.
I hate saying it but the fact that Wisconsin and MSU won it made our national championship and confrence seem all the better in eyes of the espn watchers.
I'm just glad we took players like Nick Connor though. He seems like the classic player that doesn't have the star rating and glory that other recruits do and we pass on. Where they go to places like Wisconsin or MSU and just light it on fire.
I was born in cincinnati and grew up playing disc golf there. In green hills/forest park there was a course I always played some 20 years ago. I was 12 years old and could shoot under par. My avg score was -4 my best was -9. I was really good. I even played some a few years ago and was able to par a course after a long break.
First anyone who calls Curtis Grant a bust gets no respect from me. They guy played a heck of a senor year and his leadership was appluaded by guys that get paid millions of dollars to coach young men. You play football long enough everyone makes a bad play. Second Vonn Bell recruitment will always be a fond memory. After picking Ohio State I will never forget he said. Urban told me if I picked Alabama one way or another I would see him again but he would perfer if I road with him to the game. Its when I knew we had a great confident coach. I also think how wonderful Urban must felt looking Vonn in the eyes after hoisting the trophy with a I told you so grin.
Its stupid how much nfl talent we have on the team.
Eze, M.Thomas, Joey Bosa, V.Bell, D.Lee, T.Decker, Brax, Cardale, Price, E.Apple, A.Washtington
With players like Jalin, Dontre, T.Powell, Jt all having a good chance.
This isn't even including our depth which I think has a ton of NFL talent on it. Like R.McMillan, D.Webb, E.Smith, M.Lattimore, D.Booker, Knox and tons more that have been waiting there turn.
This. He had a super freshman season. Not to mention that catch against MState on a broken foot. I think this is the season he is able to make those plays he almost made. No shoe string tackles.
Yup as a Lions fan I was begging for us to take him in round five. Then we took a Rutgers FB and I have a broken tv remote. We lose Suh and Fairley and you can't tell me M.Bennett in the fifth isn't a smarter idea then a Rutgers FB?????
He will forever be. Starting MLB and Captain of the first playoff National Champion Buckeyes to me. I will root sooooo hard for this guy.
This gif is greatness thanks.
Curtis Grant will forever be one of my fav buckeyes of all time. Listening to him speak before games gave me goosebumbs. Hearing the admiration the coaches had for this young man let you know what type of human being this guy is.
Any RPG fans should really buy Pillars of Eternity for computer. Also Divinity Original Sin is a ton of fun.
Yeah realized that after reading more. I read about his family being Wisconsin and NFL alum and it was his father.
Great thread. I'm 6'1 and was a 195lbs. I know it doens't sound like much but I had trouble putting on weight for years. Then age and my gf is a baker and I never like sweats till she got me on them. I was always around 175lbs. I went to put on a par of 34 inch pants and they where really tight. I realized that sweats and soda was causing it. I dropped the soda and juice for Cyrstal Light and water and I quit eating sweats. The hardest thing for me this first week been pizza as I love pizza. I'm averaging eat 1000-1250 calories a day my first week. I'm already down to 188.5. Also I bought carrots and pickles for when I get craving for sweats. This has really really helped me fight through the times I want to break and give myself any excuse to have a cookie or piece of cheese cake.
The thing that amazed me the most though was how many calories a day I was doing in my life from just drinking liquid. I don't do a ton of soda but I did with juice. I was taking in almost 1000 calories a day just from juice and 1 soda a day.
I'm trying to get to 175 again where I felt the best at then increase my calorie intake up to 2000 and still lay off the soda and sweats.
This. What an amazing experience those young man had. Also the president said "that team up north". How cool is that?
Thanks, I had some house stuff to do and didn't find a link till halftime. So my brief watching C.Smith, N.Conner jumped off the field to me. I've felt D.Booker was going to be a monster. Also how did it take so long for us to offer N.Connor. He seems like one of those LB we miss out on and watch him making 22 tackles in a game for another team and kick ourselves in the butt.
Really Urbans done a great job recruiting on D everywhere besides maybe DT. Our second string D is probably better then 90% of the other big tens starting.
I mean think about this.
Jayln Holmes, DT, J.Cornell, Hubbard or Slade
Dante Booker, Nick Conner, Worley (BTW did anyone notice booker during spring game?)
D.Webb, Erick Smith, Burrows, M.Lattimore
I think this D could compete for best D in the big ten.
