Watching from Honolulu today. I've already seen 16 other OSU fans wearing their gear while out to breakfast. Awesome.
There probably wouldn't be a competition for the spot if he had been great before he got hurt. But he was far from lights out, so now he has to earn it.
McCall has more versatility so can be used more easily this year. Save the redshirt on Williams.
Smith's visit won't be an official, he's only a junior.
Moments like that are part of what makes the Olympics so special to watch.
Yes, but Urban since to be transitioning to slightly less designed QB runs.
Bama has been leaning on two backs each year since the beginning of their current run of dominance. It is absolutely wise to have two elite RBs ready to share the load. Zeke-level guys who can be true bell cows are a rarity.
Tress early season (non-marquee) games were the worst. He would show absolutely nothing offensively and just let the superior OSU defense and punting win the game. Ugh. Sometimes I wanted to take a drill to my temple.
and it will pass just like the outrage expressed when Eleven Warriors redesigned its site
I still prefer the old design.
Holy crap, Harbaugh looks rough in that picture. If you told me that it was a man coming off a 72 hour meth bender, I'd believe you.
Is that even a question? Heinz all day, every day.
I'll forever by an 11W reader and will happily continue to pay for 12W. I know this site will continue to provide good content. Complete faith on my part.
I also understand those who do have doubts and are restless because of the recruiting info void. Those of us who are diehard loyals to the end need to remember that no website is entitled to anyone's time. Just because this is a free site doesn't mean that people shouldn't expect good content. If 11W wants to stay successful and keep traffic, they'll move quickly to reestablish the recruiting news flow. Otherwise, visitors will move on. It's the way any market works, free sports sites included. Jason knows this and that's partly why the staff has never rested on their laurels. Take it easy on the visitors who are panicking a bit. Let 11W's work going forward speak for them.
Collier is a great kid, but he will never start for OSU unless there are mass injuries.
I think Buckeye fans need to decide what they want...
Do you want a top 3 program that gets championships, sends a lot of players to the draft, has great national exposure, and does fantastic things like real-life Wednesdays, but occasionally rubs an Ohio player the wrong way
Do you want a top 20 program that does well, but is not elite, sends a couple kids to the NFL, puts Ohio kids first because of where they grew up, and is essentially notre dame.
The last time Michigan played Bama, it didn't turn out so well for Michigan.
You're a ferocious cognomen!
Agree with Johnny. Navy should make those the full-time uni.
Interesting business decision for UA. Will be interesting to see what they can do with UCLA's uniforms, though.
Chris is the best. Him and the coaches doing the ESPN Film Room were the best broadcast of the 2014 national championship.
What advantage (fix) was that? Also, Jordan won when he finally had a completely competent team. He had the slight misfortune of coming into the league when the Celtics, Sixers, Lakers, and Pistons were already established. The Bulls played catch up for the first 5-6 years Jordan was there. Not to mention he was injured for one of those seasons.
All of those Hall of Famers were pay their prime? Half of those guys came in at the same time or after Jordan. Or were in their primes. The only ones you can say were past their primes when Jordan came in the league are maybe Dantley, Kareem (debatable), Moses Malone, and Walton.
So, the early to mid 90's were awful at basketball? How do you figure?
Jordan dominated in the best era of basketball, early 80's to mid-90's, before the league over-expanded and the talent level on each team was watered down. Also, look at the Hall-of-Famers who he had to contend with in his prime: Magic, Bird, Dr. J, Moses Malone, Kareem, Worthy, Barkley, Malone, Stockton, Drexler, Olajuwon, Robinson, Shaq, Isaiah, Ewing, Payton, Reggie Miller, Dantley, Dumars, Dominique, McHale, Walton. I mean, Good Lord. How much of the top 50 of all-time is represented there. Another fun activity, how much of that list never won a title because they were in the same era as Jordan?
He also was dominant offensively and defensively. He could easily go off for 40 and lock down the other team's best scorer. Could he fill up the stat sheet like Big O? Easy, see the end of the of the '89 season when he was forced to play PG for the Bulls and recorded 10 triple-doubles from March 13th to April 14th. Just look at his '88 season... he shot .535, averaged 35 per game (led the league) and won the defensive player of the year. In the most competitive era of basketball. He is the only guard ever to record 200+ steals and 100+ blocks in a season, and did it twice (the only other players to do it were Pippen and Olajuwon). And, don't forget, he didn't have the benefits of the panzy foul rules that they have today.
There isn't a conference out there that would turn down Texas. The Big Ten would tell Nebraska to shut up and go back to their corner.
If 16 teams is inevitable, the Big Ten needs to strike first. I'd be fine with any of Texas, UNC, Oklahoma, Virginia, Va Tech. As said above, the Big 12 should be canabalized by all. Take the best teams while we can. The others provide recruiting access and decent institutions (yes, UNC is still a great academic school despite their recent issues).
He wasn't that good in college. Got by on size and athleticism. Didn't seem like he learned a single thing about playing OT in his time at OSU.
Him behind that line... I don't think it could have worked out better for him.
