Any chance they can sweeten the deal and take Beck with him?
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow dubbers. Here's to enjoying time with family if you are so lucky, and wondering what will happen this year in The Game some more... I wish it were Saturday already...
I can understand many are still upset with what happened including the players, but there is no context to this tweet, so why are so many jumping to conclusions?
Heady Topper can't even leave the borders of Vermont due to such low supply and high demand... my local craft brew bar drives up once a month to get as many cases as they can to bring back to NYC, and I will tell you this much - I got to know the owner just so I could guarantee to have one before they drink the whole thing before making it back into NY.
All I'm going to say is that the man had to watch JT get revenge for us last year in East Lansing from the sidelines... Senior Day, Last Game in the Shoe, B1G Championship Redemption on the line (not to mention Clemson) from a personal standpoint... XBRAX is only arriving... And again.. I'm sure it will be personal.
Short and sweet
Mack attack will be welcomed and hopefully contribute right away since Mikey Thomas will be leaving after this season. Noah Brown and Austin as wideouts plus Jalin/Curtis in H, with Mikey Weber at RB... Talk about a reload...
The heir apparent for sure... Question will be whether his roots and loyalty tie more closely to California, Texas, or Ohio... The other question is what happens when Herman takes a team to the national title... Urban has set such a high bar by having won a few before coming that I wonder if Tom feels he needs to prove something similar as a head coach.
Edit: He might even consider the Pros a la Chip Kelly
Sadly this is on par with the trends in coffee, too. For those who like great coffee, Stumptown (originally from Oregon) was sadly bought out by Peet's (former Starbucks employees). Stumptown is still one of the better roasters with larger distribution... Hopefully this transaction doesn't hurt their quality.
As for beers, I thought that Ballast Point makes a very drinkable beer, but there are so many good craft brewers distributing now and in the game that it has become a game of 'my local secret stuff is way better than your local stuff' - and rather ridiculous. Everyone knows that the there are amazing ones all over our great country. Ballast Point is more mid-tier for me - but kudos to hard work and passion paying off
Sushi feels insulted by this...
Oh deer, here we go with the puns
^^^^This. It's time to hearken back to the turning point for us last year, which was against Sparty...
It's senior day... I am looking for a big dose of the human highlight reel on Saturday from XBrax
This thread with Knar was like reading my conversations within my head. Thanks for writing it for me.
He isn't wrong. Maybe how he said it is rubbing folks the wrong way, but the expectations on the OL is justified given their success last year. What has been confounding is that the same personnel save Farris have not been able to pick up where they left off - much to fan frustration.
I really really really miss him... Like really. Also, that backup QB can thank Kenny G for preparing him
If we forget last year happened for a moment, then I think our best game is yet to come. Urban's mantra has been 9 units strong. That clearly has not been the case the whole season so on the one hand, I don't see us doing anything spectacular in the remaining games, on the other hand, it is nice to have upside that seems limitless.
Now bring perspective of what that upside can look like from last year... Oh wait, we can't, because this is a different team with a QB who didn't play in the post-season, and loss of fierce leadership on both sides of the ball... So just buckle up, throw expectations out the window, and enjoy what this season has been - more mundane winning for you spoiled fans
C'mon Hoosiers - win one for Wilson
Having alcohol legally within the stadium now makes the intrigue of fights with rival fans at The Game even more likely... I will be curious to see if they have taken measures to control mobs.
That said, people have been coming to games drunk or sneaking in stuff for decades, so who knows
Another day in the life of 17-18 year olds. Good luck to you all!
Heal up young fella, and get ready for the draft!. As for TCU, well, sometimes horns and frogs don't work so well together
No matter who we end up with, I predict PAIN for a lot of our opponents.
Well put Andy. What made it miserable was that we had good and well coached teams every year except for that dreaded last game. That is why we can't really draw comparisons with TTUN, because their teams were never really national title worthy under their coaching carousel of mediocrity over the past decade+
It should be tOSU is better than all of the SEC and the B1G vs Finebaum and Revsine. Then, I would consider buying tickets
Not sure we would like Bama to play Clemson before us since they run a similar offense, and Kirby Smart likely wouldn't get beat two games in a row to similar offenses
