Raising Cane's is a staple every single time I'm in Columbus. However, just a mile or so to the West on Lane Avenue there are two plazas. One has Wings Over, Piada, Tai's Asian Bistro, and Jersey Mike's. And if you go a bit farther the second one has Royal Ginger and Rusty Bucket. No bad choices there, friend. There's a French Bistro on the other side of the street called La Chatelaine but I'm not a fan. Right next to it is Graeter's Ice Cream though and... wow, the raspberry chocolate chip ice cream there is crazy. If you can handle it in this cold, that is.
Lou is indeed the man. My grandfather and him were close friends growing up in East Liverpool, OH together. He returned to East Liverpool when I was a kid and I got to meet him. I still have the picture that he signed for me. It says, "Joston - hope you come to Notre Dame. -Lou Holtz"
Glad I didn't go to Notre Dame but also glad I got to meet such a great man.
As someone whose first name happens to be Joston, you let that douchbag ring burn in bonfire hell. I got nervous as shit in high school every time they announced anything about class rings.
PA System: "Attention students.... Josten's....."
Me: "Oh fuck, what did I do?!"
PA System: "...will be here on Friday and Saturday for a fitting..."
Me: "Jesus... thank you God. Fuck you, Josten's. And learn to spell your name correctly!"
We are going to SHITHOUSE VaTech in the biggest revenge game in recent memory. And I believe with Narduzzi gone the Spartans won't be what we are accustomed to them being.
Penn State will be tough. They got us closer to the brink of defeat than anyone on our schedule (aside from the Hokies) and Hackenberg should be a boss. Coach Franklin will try his best but the home-field advantage should help us get the victory.
TTUN is the one to watch. They could be in a position to put all their cards on the table at that point in the season. Harbaugh will be trying to prove himself and their seniors will follow suit. There will be so much hype around the new rivalry between the two coaches, but in the end we pull out the victory on enemy territory. This will definitely be our toughest game before the post-season. 12 and 0 and three to go baby!
Nice write up, sir. As a 28-year old fan I follow a very similar timeline in your fanaticism. And as much as I worshiped The Vest, I must agree with you: UFM has replaced all those bad memories with good ones AND given me a serious hope for the future. The one thing that Meyer does that really sets him apart, to me, might be the only thing you didn't mention about him. He has put together (and will most likely continue to put together) the BEST staff of coaches in college football. He isn't worried about promoting his buddies or saving face or even picking the most popular candidate. He assembles a staff that buys into his philosophy, encourages them to work harder than anyone else, dares them to challenge their players to become leaders on the field, and builds a family-like relationship with all of them. His coaching tree is ridiculous. This to me is what really sets him apart. OH, AND HE'S A BADASS!
I wish I could give you more upvotes for this piece of gold.
This is great. Wouldn't want the recruits finding our NCAA gilded fleshlight. HAHAAAA!
I didn't realize it until the end but I was holding my breath for a better part of that video. Holy potato that was the bees knees!
UFM was quoted not long ago in an interview saying that he had NEVER been in a football game where luck was involved. Results are what you get from effort and outcome. That's his mantra. If we can win on Monday and a Dynasty begins it won't be about luck. It will be about winning on the recruiting trail, winning in the classroom, winning at practice, and winning on the field. It sounds like the coaching staff preaches this constantly and our young Bucks are buying in at a fever pitch. Love every second.
Eternal upvotes for my favorite movie of all time.
I hope you're right because I've been waiting for this to happen ever since he's gotten here. So much hype about him being quick and strong with the rugby background... so give him the ball! He's only had one chance (if my memory serves me well) and it was a mild disaster. But still he can't get any better at it if he never tries.
Mike Riley and Paul Chryst.... Wait, did you mean to use sarcasm font?
Distract him with a pretty lady and then fake kick him in the teeth? Well, whatever works!
This all sounds great, but I would imagine that Mullen will try to hang on to this guy if he heads to TSUN.
Cardale went through hell and high water to be a part of this team. I see very little chance of him putting that aside to take a risk across the country. He's got Buckeye Scarlet in his blood.
Good call, forgot about him.
My thoughts exactly. I didn't write this post to entice the idea of a major player transferring. But someone like Collier or even Burrow may not be hard to convince seeing that the heir-apparent is lined up already in Gibson.
That Man of Steel music gets me going, even when TBDBITL plays it on Saturdays. Loved every second.
Oh, and if anyone is interested in a new wallpaper for their computers to accompany the Bucks CFP bid, check out this little diddy I put together.
CC this looks like one of those posts that I should screenshot for the future when Little Boy Bosa shows up and breaks all of his big brother's records. Not saying it will happen, only that it will be much easier to save this post now than to search for it later. :)
I've been raving about this dude since National Letter of Intent day. He was the very first buckeye to send his in, 7-something in the morning. He didn't hesitate then and he hasn't hesitated since. I knew right away he was going to be something special.
Note: I also "knew right away" that Mike The Abusement Park Mitchell would be something special also. So I'm batting .500 right now.
