Specifically WHAT is not true that I wrote? Where did I say that all girls are superior to boys? Way to completely change what I said. I said that in many cases girls are superior to boys. Having been a coach and teacher, I can tell you that it's absolutely true. No one would challenge that boys are superior in most cases. But that doesn't diminish the ability of girls.
I was trying to make light of the absurdity. This is great for her family, the team, and especially her. But are you really surprised that a girl was able to excel at little league? Really?
Look I'm the father of an athletic girl who would beat the boys in push ups and sit up right up to around this age. A grown woman in MLB? That's news. Girls at this age are very close athletically to boys and in many cases better.
"...he doesn't look that special to me." is pretty much a universal bitch slap. How much more insulting can you get to a football player on a football-related website?
Big deal. Put my son on a girls baseball team and I bet he can throw a shutout too.
I am encouraged by the response of you and other Michigan fans. That, at least, give me hope that there are some that believe in the "Michigan Man" motto. However, I really have to take umbrage with your coach. If it were a police report claiming these actions, it would be one thing. But there is indisputable video evidence right there. Add that to the one game suspension of a convicted felon (would not a "regular student" been expelled for breaking into another student's dorm room and stealing their laptop?????) and it's inexcusable. Urban would have been crucified for these two incidents (not even accounting for the kicker thing/Lewan thing).
OK, BEGIN RANT:
Are you freaking kidding me!? Not like we should be surprised since this is the classy coach that suspended a convicted felon for one game. This beyond pisses me off! Urban gets treated like the fucking anti-Christ over nothing, yet we have coaches like Hoke and Les Miles essentially ignoring some of the worst behavior of all. I remember the day when suckerpunching someone would make you an outcast within your own peer group!
Hoke is a fucking douche bag!
That's your right. Most of us would focus on our appreciation of the offers to our son, not the perceived slight. All he's done it publicized his disappointment. What's the point, other than to make yourself look petty or seem like a hovering parent.
My God, the kid got offers others dream of getting.
Sounds like someone's father is a real class act. How DARE THEY not think as highly of your son as you do....the nerve of tOSU.
I was thinking the same thing. It may not be much but so glad he got that catch. Wonder if never haven gotten it would have prolonged the decision?
I attended John Carroll and Florida but like most on here was raised a Buckeye since birth!
Didn't read the original article because quite frankly I don't have any interest in the band. But it sounds like they are saying this needs to be directed at a few journalists first.
Love Eze but time for Rod to take advantage of the opportunity. Haven't given up on him!!!!
What bothers me about crap like this is that his redshirting-non-playing ass doesn't have to cash that check. Had it come from an active member of the team? Fine. But he won't sniff the field. Nice teammate.
"~~My personal belief is that these two, particularly Dunn, have what it takes...."
This is not meant as an attack on Dunn, but I keep reading this type of stuff and just don't understand it. I haven't seen much from Dunn that makes me feel this way. In fact, I've seen far more glimpses from Smith ( I get it, he's been here longer, some feel he missed his chances, etc). Rod Smith has had runs that few backs in college football could do. I have yet to see anything even close to that from Dunn. Am I missing something?
Again, not meant as an attack on Dunn. I hope he turns out to be another great back at tOSU. But, despite not knowing what goes on behind closed doors, I can't help but feel we're really missing out on a potential star in Rod Smith.
I think you miss the point. What are we supposed to do? Say we're outraged and this is inappropriate? Of course we are and it is. I think that goes without saying. But let's not kid ourselves with the feigned shock. I spent six years in the Navy and have seen much, much worse. There's always that knowledge that if the person pushing the envelope of acceptable behavior gets caught or a person in a position of authority knowingly ignores it and gets caught, they are going to burn.
Wait. Did the band vote on it?
No WAY Miller "only" runs a 4.5. If he doesn't run in the 4.4s, someone else on this site will eat their shoe.
What exactly do you mean by "academics"? It really intrigues me when I see this, whether it's from a Notre Dame fan, Sparty, or Michigan. Are you saying that Michigan St is significantly superior to tOSU? If so, you make me laugh. People who say things like that, unless you are talking about Ivy League schools where the top companies come on campus to recruit or very specific programs, really have no clue how the real world works. There is absolutely no evidence to support that going to one school or the other will make any difference in your career. As someone that has interviewed and hired many, many people, I pay VERY little attention to the school, unless of course a Harvard or Brown sticks out. It is all based on the individual and their experience.
Wow, Texas really blew it on that one. The Texas HS coaches would have LOVED MD. He would have gotten any of the Texas talent he wanted.
Really? We got our asses kicked because two players chose other schools in July prior to their senior year? Hyperbole much?
This "people not being able to determine sarcasm unless it's pointed out to them" crap is getting old...
Yeah but what have you done to get his commitment?
Agreed. I have an 80+ year old father and a young son that just started pop warner that are die hard Buckeyes. We live in Florida so when you combine airfare, hotel, and now the actual ticket cost, I might have to take out a 2nd mortgage. It's a shame that the experience isn't more available to those that truly appreciate it (I.E. us true Buckeye fans). I can't help but wonder how many are corporately purchased and given to people who really don't care whether they go or not...
You sir, are correct. Unfortunately looks like it's not to be. Even more unfortunate to find out the price of Buckeye tickets on the resell market. Gotta love Capitalism! Thanks though!
