Used to love to watch his lectures at the ROTC building...the man knew his military history (Navy man). He did them in a little class room where about 15 of us would sit in awe about 10-15 feet away as he talked and walked and wrote on the blackboard.
Here's my take on the issue.
Is Dino an OSU coach now...no. Is Cupp a current OSU player or recruit...no. Am I related to Cupp...no.
Nevermind, my "Give a damn" has already left the building.
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 forget, doesn't the Illini fan cheer go: "At least we aren't Purdue....yet"?
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.
MREs are the good stuff. You were lucky you came after C-rats. lol That was some rough chow.
So what ESPN is saying is
...and even then, the cops will have to think about it if the athlete is a baller.
NCAA...All your trophy are belong to us!
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.
Carr's RichRod's Hoke's fault. Wait til next year! - MgoBlow faithful
Bwaaaaaaaaaa!!! Their tears are so yummy!!!!
WTF is an Insane Clown Posse and why would we want them to come to C-bus?
You kids get the hell off my lawn!!!!
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.
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.
You might have heard, Urban has a degree in psychology. And "Da Man" plays a serious game of chess. This kind of comment is exactly the kind of motivation required to drive second-string players over the summer to the point where Warinner faces the same kind of dilemma Beck/UFM face come next fall (which of these studs do I have to leave on the bench). Don't think for a second that casual comment won't be made perfectly clear in Warinner's film room.
We'll get there and that comment is a first step in the right direction.
That last dudes bitter tears taste so sweet. Hehehehehe
Cadets makes them sound like children (seems to fit in the chain...Cub Scout, Webelos, Explorer, Cadet). If somebody nicknamed my unit cadets back in the day when I joined the Corps, there would have been hell to pay and blood to clean up.
I hope Nike really forked over a pile of money, because Army sure got hosed on that one.
I heard that too...cubic ziconia....cubic zirconia...really dude, you've got to be shitting me.
Them are some cheap bastards at the "CFP Administration, LLC". $470million/yr in TV revenue alone and they decide we better keep costs down by going zirconia on the 100 or so rings we buy for the champs.
Spring was always going to be like this. (Summer and camp will be worse, because no decision will be made until late.)
About one more article about Cardale and we'll be getting the "I can't believe everybody is overlooking Braxton and focusing so much on 12ga" posts. JT has a couple good days and articles and we'll get the same about too much focus on him.
We can downplay it all we want (and so can the staff) but it is a serious dilemma because all 3 are studs and have already proven they deserve the right to start...on the field during crunch time. I'd have to be Urban on this one and like the article said, I suspect it is eating him up to not have a good way to get all 3 on the field. (That said, about 100 D1 head coaches would trade QB depth chart with UFM in less than a millisecond...and laugh like hyenas that they got the better end of the trade.)
Side note: I don't know a thing about Beck really, but I suspect he'll be involved in the QB decision about the same way the extra chair in a conference room is involved in meetings. UFM is going to own this one.
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.
