They just want to chase the waterfalls...
Curtis' physique and quickness remind me very much of Pepe Pearson, but not quite as thick yet. I'm sure Marotti will put some heft on this stud
"... targets have gone the way of the dodo..." - instant classic.
Brilliant Birmsy, simply brilliant.
It's an embarrassment of riches... and I like it!
Speaking of Oktoberfest, the Oktoberfest bier in Munchen (Munich) is surreal - great great beer. It's a great party and celebration, and even better are all the wonderful sights of beauties showcasing themselves in Dirndls.
Wait, were we talking about beer?
So here's a thought... say we get Mr. Gibson.
We get Braxton back next year, we will have a seasoned JT, we will have Cardale Jones, and we would also have Stephen Collier (who has been quiet but getting practice reps). Add to this Mr Joe Burrow... That would be 6 QBs for 2014 - and all with talent (some obviously more and different than others). o.O
This hurts my brain. It's like seeing our coffers get full again... Gibson and Joe Burrow would have such great examples to learn from that you would imagine them being absolute studs in a few years... or we could start to see transfers... that would be a poll question: Does OSU Retain all QBs next year, or Will We See Transfers, and Who?
Look kids, Big Ben! Parliament!
He is only getting better, and short of Heisman hyperbole, I believe that we will see his leadership and fine-tuning grow tremendously by the end of the year. Granted he hasn't played a 'standard' strength team in the heart of a season yet (talk about a wonky beginning), but it was nice to hear him say "the game is slowing down for me". Those are words used at the start of a new season by veteran college QBs - like when Troy Smith said it in the year he won the Heisman.
I don't want to think about Braxton right now, but if he continues to grow at his current pace and just flat out kills it the rest of the way, look out world.
That should be the uniform they have to wear for practice if they lose a game.
So the expansion of the B1G recruiting footprint helps us here... DeMatha is one of those feeder schools like Glenville, so it's nice to be able to tap into that with LJS leading the way - go get 'em coach!
One thing I will say is that this is now 3 weeks of watching JT be very very accurate with his throws albeit short for most of the attempts, but I also noticed that his velocity was good today. Hopefully this is an upward trend toward the rest of the season!
I believe Kenny G was at the game today... if he was, he just witnessed his own record get tied.
Let's ditch the chrome unis or at least come back with something different (burn away the schneid!). It's good to win in the more traditional outfit.
A brighter future is within your grasp Noah... get 'er done.
OHhhh whoa whoa whoa *wimper wimper wimper* whoaaaa OHHHhh whoa whoa whoa whoa... (repeat)
I'd add that we could use an 11W Ascot, and a cognac glass with your suggestion.
It's no badge of honor to have been in the city when it happened, but I was there.
Saw the flames on the side of WTC 1 and 2 towers from my office in TriBeCa, and had enough sense to leave the office as soon as there was the second 'boom'. Just missed the towers crashing.
Had to walk over the Qnsbro Bridge to get home because they shut down all bridges and tunnels to traffic. I remember not being able to call anyone to let them know I was ok. The only mobile network that worked was T-mobile that day, because they had their main antenna on top of the Empire State Building, which we were fearing was being targeted, too.
My wife lost her uncle in one of the towers that day. She wasn't close to him, but she still talks about finding his name on the memorial downtown. That day made me love NYC more than ever in my 3rd year there, but it's hard to imagine it's been 13 years since and I've been looking for excuses to leave gotham - just can't find any.
The good news is that being third/fourth in a seemingly hopeless conference is that it's only lasts a season. Every year is another opportunity to be different (better or worse, win or lose) [channeling my inner Urbz].
Now, if we pull a *ichigan and lose complete relevance - consistently, then I'd get tired of a cold slap to the face, too, but I have my Browns to weigh me down so I guess I have balance... wow, I just had a moment of enlightenment - Thanks Doc!
Interesting point Hove - I wonder how many top 10 teams would want to play us towards November... I would bet none.
I loved that he sounds just like Hoke while ranting about said Hoke... hmnnnn
I get a sinking feeling that at the end of the season, they are going to mention how he played through an injury or something...
I know we can't control our scheduling barring weather-related cancellations, but even if we win, this is a no win week in my mind, since winning by 100 pts against Kent St. won't prove anything and playing a close scoring game will only feed the trolls - AND next week is a bye week... it's such a downer of a start to an opening for a season. We need something fierce to blow these clouds out of Columbus.
Laughter is the best medicine. Upvote for you!
So long as it's not 98.
Do I get points for reading this whole thread? I love this community entertainment.
