Scrawny little guy isn't he? Oh well, at least he has another year of high school...maybe he can work on his physique.
Coach Mick will have this guy makin OTs cry in just a couple years. lol
Sad to see that even the healthiest of lifestyles can't stave off mental illness. Hell, Hunter had both grapefruit and orange juice during his daily bender. If you count walking back and forth to the bar for Chivas refills, the man filled in the daily exercise checkbox too. I don't know what else the man could have done to live healthier. Well...maybe he could have used ground up multi-vitamins to cut his cocaine???
When pigs fly!!! Even then the ghost of Woody will shoot the pig out of the sky with a lightening bolt from his saintly hand, restoring order to the universe...and we'll squeak out a win.
Touche...but even on-side kicks will wear the kicker out after 30-40 reps. lol
Those are funny...we need to send them some "We aren't taking a punter to Blacksburg, just extra kickoff teams. - Urban" shirts
DJ and anybody else upset needs to take a deep breath and relax.
It sucks for Weber and I wish it went a different way, but it is what it is. Mike should just try to keep some perspective...it will work out fine. OSU didn't change, Meyer didn't change, Buckeye Nation didn't change...and top-flight RB coaches will be killing each other in a fight to get an interview. Hmmm...Top head coach in the biz to learn from, top brand-name program for the resume, easy to recruit for National Title Winner with that charismatic HC, Heisman front-runner in your room (plus a bunch of other studs), stud Offensive line in front of your RBs, etc. etc. etc. Yeah I can see where its going to be a bitch to find any good candidates for that job. ;D
Congrats to Drayton...if NFL experience is what he wants, that will be a fine place to start,
Bummer for Weber...I feel for the young man, but he'll come round. Take a deep breath and think of it this way Mike...
Every quality position coach in the country would give their right arm to be on Urban's staff and learn from the master. No matter when the job came open, it has to be one of the top 10 positions-coach jobs you can land. And in this case, the job comes with the Heisman front-runner in your room...along with a bunch of other studs. Hell, the best RB coaches around will be knife-fighting each other to cut in line for an interview. Phone lines will be clogged going into the WHAC and Olentangy will be a parking lot for all the good coaches trying to get that job.
Great coach, great team...heisman candidates coming out our ears. I wouldn't trade Urban or the team for anything.
However, I think the future might have seemed just a shade brighter at this point after the '68 championship (Super Sophs had 2 more years...no going pro early).
Fesler gives an iron-clad guarantee and I'll go "Lizzy Borden" on Ol yeller, a sick little boy's favorite kitty and a little girl's pony with a dull, rusty hatchet. If it will make the Buckeye streak longer/stronger I'll kill, cook and eat Filbert and swallow the guppy whole too...and I'll sleep just fine. (I can hate myself in retrospect in the great beyond. In this life I'm "all in" for Buckeye supremacy.)
I believe it was that learned philosopher Mel Brooks who said...."It's good to be King!"
I'm sure he also said "...and Meeechian still sucks!!!!"
TV exposure is great and all...I just hope he can fit in a little NJ recruiting while he's in the area. lol
Letterman was a Warren Zevon fan...how bad can he be??? I'll miss him.
I don't know squat about Beck...nor do I care. Meyer could hire a fence post and I'd be "all in" behind the move. Coach has EARNED all the trust and latitude in the world around C-bus. If Beck can recruit Texas well and juggle the QB horn-o-plenty all the better!
Here ya go Coach Beck...two Heisman candidates, a 3-0 starter who lit up 3 great defenses on the biggest stages in the country and half a dozen studs in the making all waiting in your room. Don't worry, no pressure. All the fans expect is that next year's 3 Heisman finalists all play QB at OSU...and an undefeated season where we average 60pt/600yds. Once you have that covered just relax and take it easy. lol
Quick, somebody get my man Coombs a case of extra-strength coffee...we can't have a member of the staff looking that lethargic and drowsy all the time. lol
All your juice are belong to Coach Coombs!
Since the Statesman Journal Editor was undoubtedly forbidden to use the preferred "O Shit!"...I like what they did with the "O, No." Besides, that is a truly iconic pic with Bosa casually walking back to get ready to do it again and Mariotta trying to figure out if all his parts are still in tact.
Hate to be the one to let facts get in the way of a good story, but wasn't OSU on (at least the regional) SI cover last week?
I'm with you. Remind me again if Urban tried to get those 2 guys to come to C-bus. Hmmm.
That said, JH may need a lesson in "not poking the bear." I'm sure Urban will be willing to oblige.
Just the families...teams have already sold their uniform rights.
Solution....NCAA takes the opportunity to do right AND get their beak wet on promo.
NCAA simply signs a deal with Nike (Phil Knight would be in a mood to comply this year for sure) whereby Nike provides a plane for family members to each of the 6 teams travelling, pays the hotel bills and provides Nike clothes. Families travel free so long as they wear the swoosh and spend their time in a Nike promo (plane, hotel, airport van...everything labelled in swooshes). NCAA gets a small additional fee (couple mil) and they set up a Nike labelled family section in the stands on each side for each game so that all family TV shots are blanketed in swooshes. (And of course, the obligatory family thank yous to Nike in every interview about what they think of being able to see their kid play.)
Problem solved, everybody wins. (And Adidas and Under Armor will bid up the offering as fast as they can get to a phone.)
A week until we play for the national title and the biggest thing some folks have to worry about is one of our 3 stud QBs for next year (the one with a big ass Block O on his shoulder) did some social media fork up?
Even "Phyllis from Mulga" is shaking her head at that one.
Congrats to scUM on getting the guy they wanted. It will make stomping the puke and blue even sweeter.
That said, my 2nd favorite team will always be whoever plays scUM that particular week.
I hope somebody gets Urban a new spatula for Xmas...he's wearin out the current one like it owes him money.
Boom! And welcome to Buckeye Nation young man.
My basic point of view is that we want the best ACs in the business...period. Best recruiter, best teacher, best motivator and best play /scheme caller at their position in the country. OSU should not be a "we get the best value by getting pretty good guys on the cheap" team. Starting there, here are a few AC pay parameters.
1) No coordinator at OSU should make less than $1.25mil. (If they aren't worth that much, they need to be replaced with someone who is worth that much ASAP.) The bonus is that the $1.25mill price that would eliminate a huge chunk of smaller schools from stealing them as head coach. (The smaller schools could not match/better the $1.25mil. Tulsa pays their HC $750k for example.) Second bonus is that only top-10 programs would be able to better the price to steal them as a coordinator.
2) No AC at OSU should make less than 80% of the highest paid AC at their position in the country. Same rule as above regarding them being worth that much money. Bud Foster makes $1.356mil, so our DC should make (and be worth) at least $1.085mil. Cam Cameron makes $1.3mil, so Herman should make $1.04 (minimum).
3) No AC at OSU should make less than $250k. Again, if they ain't worth that much, they need to be replaced with someone who is worth at least that much ASAP. This isn't a "starter gig." We want top talent, not an entry-level guy or someone who is just learning their job.
JT got screwed. He earned and deserved the invite.
The Early Leaders for the 2015 Heisman:
- Whoever the Buckeyes start at QB
- Whoever is 2nd string QB at OSU
- Whoever is 3rd string QB at OSU
