The atmosphere had to help PSU and winning with less talent didn't hurt.

That said, I agree that a smart kid isn't looking at any one game performance/result to make his decision...and on the average I'll take what OSU has to offer over what PSU has every damn day of the week (and love our chance of getting the blue-chippers).

Comment 23 Oct 2016

Agreed.  The offensive woes (passing game) are a little reminiscent of last year pre-scUM.  Very painful to watch things a fall apart and not get fixed for weeks.  Expectations are a bitch and I suppose mine were unrealistically raised the first few games.

On the bright side, at least we're done facing teams who have a bye week to get ready for us while we have to play.

You missed the only story that matters in music history for 10/20.  10/20/1977...Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash.

Comment 21 Oct 2016

I've had 2 surgeries on my right shoulder to repair A/C joint and cuff tears.  Both times I was in misery and decided to get the surgery.  Both times I came away from the end of therapy with less strength and a non-optimal feeling.

If you can't go the surgery route and won't go the pain med route, RICE (Rest [sling], Ice, Compression [shirt] and Elevation) are the only real options in my opinion.  You can try swapping back/forth from Ice to heat, but that is more of an inflammation fix than a pain remedy.  I've done the physical therapy in lieu of surgery thing...never really helped me.

Wish I had a better suggestion Devil Dog...but that's all I've got.

Semper Fi!

It's just a tourist attraction.  The bigger they make the tent, the larger demographic they hope to draw visitors from.  Irrelevant "honor" and I can see how their management and the Cleveland Chamber of Commerce would want to include as many genre/acts as they can plausibly get away with including.

Comment 16 Oct 2016

Can't compare them.  If forced at gunpoint, I'd say scUM looked better against them than we did.  

However, the whole 2nd straight tough road game vs home night game, after 4 straight weeks of games vs coming off a bye week and differing opponent offense styles make the comparison irrelevant.

Studies have nothing to do with it.  If you're a Nevada politician, you can:

a) Vote to build a big tourist draw that does not compete with the existing casinos/resorts (and actually helps them fill rooms...meaning casino owners will appreciate the favor, perhaps to the tune of campaign donations) and be able to claim you voted to create a bunch of jobs


b) Vote against and get to claim you are fiscally responsible because there is no proof it would pay off for taxpayers. (Then defend every other expenditure against the "we could have had the Raiders and a stadium" argument.)

Right or wrong, its fairly easy to see why this was a vote that was destined to pass.

What the hell is a Sam Brodner...he must have been waaay down the chart on that class.

Never have, will or will understand using Twitter...just don't see the appeal.  However, kids say things they shouldn't.  (That said Stave had a negative TD/INT ratio his last 2 years...so Williams wasn't exactly wrong.)  The point is you either help them learn/grow or you show them the door and move on.  Wisky made their choice.  

We'll see how it works out for them, but personally, I wouldn't swap Williams for Brodner (even if I knew who he was) in a RB-dependent offense.

Comment 12 Oct 2016

To be fair, it's a relative thing.  He's obviously used to the complex offense and blazing WR speed he sees in practice every day (in Peavy and Wheelwright).  So sure, OSU looks basic and slow to him.  /s

Bold strategy there Cotton!

Comment 11 Oct 2016

Crystal ball says maybe...but calendar says it's the first week of Oct (read "who the hell knows this early).

Comment 11 Oct 2016

Let the kid do his research, find his comfort and make the best choice for him.  I'd love to have him in S&G...but we'll be better than fine either way.  As long as UFM is around, we will always have a kick ass recruiting class and fill our needs.

On the other hand, that Reuben guy has to go!  /s

Comment 11 Oct 2016

While that seems true and I want to agree...how well can a fan know the character of a kid on the team...let alone 105 of them.  So apparently true and all I can do is trust UFM & Co.
