smh at the freakin Bee Gees.  Confirms his later statement 

As somebody who has been dead inside for at least a decade

Only the Rambin Man selection redeems you in the eyes of Marion, Claridon and Caledonia.  Do three "Hail Skynyrds," listen to Pronounced twice and repent for full forgiveness.

When in doubt, fire out!!

Had I experienced that moment of giant-stage panic, I might have busted a Bobby Boucher move.

Comment 22 Aug 2015

A little humor amongst brothers (and nowadays sisters) is a good thing!

And I agree about those Air Force (and Marine Air Wingers) folks.  As a Marine Infantryman I was always jealous of those suckers sleeping in a warm, dry, soft bed every night.  lol  (But damn it was nice to be able to call 'em when you needed a little air support.)

As someone who was lucky enough to hear Woody lecture in the ROTC Building years ago, I agree with others...makes perfect sense to instill the warrior ethic and culture into our team.

On a side note, war is first and foremost a state of mind and therefore applicable to any adversarial activity.  Strategy, tactics and methods (lethality) are simply tools used within the "With your shield or on it" mentality.  (Refer to The Art of War, The Book of 5 Rings or Von Clausewitz's On War.)  Nothing derogatory or inappropriate about the reference or culture at all.

In war (as in most any adversarial activity), the most prepared and committed almost always wins.  That is certainly where I want the Buckeyes coming from on Game Day.  

My 2 cents anyway.

Fortunately I don't have to worry about things like Hall decommitting and and Hill maybe waivering.  I've got this absolute superstar stud that handles those kinds of things for me.  What was his name...Urban something...hell, I just call him the Closer. 

I hope all the kids pick the best school for them.  OSU has so much to offer that regardless of specific individual guys the Bucks are going to rake in the cream of the crop.  It'll all work out just fine and in a month we won't even have to think about it for 4+ months.

I've got an ass-kicking like the world has never seen for that low-life that stole serviceman grave markers to use as carport flooring.  What a freakin low-life.

I don't give sheet what TTUN does.

That said, after RichRod's "let's fill the roster with guys who can flip over trash cans" and then Hoke's "errr, uhh,  ehhh, ahhh...recruiting...errr, uhhh, ahhh...meatchicken...ummm, ahhh, ehhh, Ohio" I suspect Harbaugh took his roster in one hand, his ethics code in the other and said...at least one of these things has to go before they figure out their spending $8mil for more Urban ass-kickins."

Dick move, but he could well have felt it was his only choice to TRY to get better fast enough that scUM fans don't notice how much they are paying per win.

If you are going to compare Meyer to Tressel, the Tressel period has to be his first 3 years.  (Transitions where you implement new offenses with existing personnel have an impact too.)

In Tressel's first 3 years we had 55 fumbles (19, 17, 19) and lost 29 (11, 7, 8).  So we're really comparing 61 to 55 and 35 to 29.  I'll take that trade-off every damn day of the millenia given production.

The moral of the story is that there are fewer mishandles and its easier to recover your mistakes when you run Dave 75% of the time than when you are trying to stretch the field both directions and option off defensive player decisions.

Hope we can land him.  The kid has some size and talent...which is a great START.  Given the brand comment, he apparently has a little attitude/self-image to go with it.  I don't mind that too much give his age because:

1) You can't make a stud race horse unless you start with an untamed stallion

2) I can still vaguely remember when I was his age and the path to success seemed so clear/easy since I already knew everything. lol

A few years under Sensei Meyer (and with our stable of QBs tossing him the pill) would do wonders on developing his talent and refining him into a real-deal thoroughbred.

Like Woody used to say...

The question isn't whether that butt-kicking will eventually come.  The question is where/when it will come.  A coach like Urban would see to it that it comes in practice at the WHAC.  Someplace else it might come in front of millions on a Saturday night.

Comment 24 Apr 2015

Seems like a lot of love for Minny in that schedule...3 primetime appearances, two of them as the Home team.  I'm just saying they haven't really earned that degree of exposure given that Wisky (yeah I know, new staff) was left off altogether and Sparty only has 2 appearances.

Then again, dating myself I know, but still I once saw Larry Holmes beat Tex Cobb in boxing.  Tex thought he was the better, tougher fighter.  After getting knocked down half a dozen times or so, Tex got complacent and forgot to get up in time to beat that last 8-count.  If only he hadn't gotten complacent.

Comment 19 Apr 2015

I believe his concern was he didn't want Meyer standing around waiting.  So he kept checking the hall to see if Urban was headed that way.  I suspect the plan was for players to talk after coach and Cardale somehow went before coach (maybe just to fill time).  So he wanted to make sure the schedule was put back on course as soon as Urban walked through the door.
