I'll admit, I have a hard time seeing Simmons as anything but his Oz role, too. Even though he keeps surprising me with how good he is.
Well, let's be honest, it's the parking that's going to kill you on the deal.
That's the real shocker, there.
One thing I have to admit that I like is the technique showed in the tackles- it's not a video of guys just launching at guys, it's a video that showcases a lot of good tackling technique- heads up, wrap up, tackle through the man.
Most "best hits" highlight reel stuff is a bad example. This you could show to younger players to show how you do it.
Cool article. I don't have much else to add to the conversation, I'm mostly just commenting so that this thread might stay closer to the front page or something.
Man, if you think this board is bad now, you should have been here during the years Tress coached the team- basically every other forum post called for ALL TRUE BUCKEYE FANS to DEMAND JIM TRESSEL resign in disgrace BECAUSE WE ONLY BEAT THE OTHER TEAM BY 10 POINTS!!!!!!!111111!!11!!ELEVEN
I wish it were done for another year- there are already commits to the 2016 and 2017 class for people to fret over. Recruiting is the only year round sport, apparently.
Well, I don't know about worst history in all of sports. I mean, I don't think it's as bad as pulling Tretiak for Myshkin.
Actually, a lot of teams have had at least two players in Heisman talk, going back to Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside. And The Four Horsemen would have been contenders.
Here's the list. (Scroll down in the comments)
I'm of the opinion that you can never have too many good O linemen or cornerbacks. Buy 'em cheap, stack 'em deep, ship 'em to the NFL.
Eh, the stories Martin stole the Drowned God from do a better job presenting him.
I'm pretty sure it's an NCAA violation for players to sell things they own for money. Le sigh.
Erm, FYI, the term "Blue Laws" has nothing to do with "Red State/Blue State," in fact, it predates the US. As long as we're tellin' folks to check their history any whatnot.
I've seen the video, he's fine at the end of the fall.
Did we win? Did we win?
Tackle Lateral- the best goal line play ever devised by man.
I, for one, never miss the Ram when I'm in Indy for Gen Con, so there's that.
I do hear Louisville is pretty good this year.
The sad part is that the negative fans in the thread are the ones who will tell you they're the only "real fans" because they "tell it like it is, not like you losers who think we're good" and "they're the smartest guys in the room," too, just ask them. Let's be honest, the reality is that they're posting in those threads because no one wants to watch the game with them, and no one wants to talk about sports with them, for reasons that should be obvious.
I'd go so far as to say that Navy came to play because they're Navy. They always play hard, and deserve much respect for that. (Not that I think you meant otherwise.)
Kodak, Canon, Leica, Nikon. that's all I got.
It's also not his first rodeo, injury-wise. He's been hurt before, so he knows what's coming.
Also, I think to medical redshirt, you have to have already redshirted- a medical is a 6th year of eligibility.
So, I don't know about guys getting hurt. Here are teams with two players finishing in the top ten in Heisman voting:

Only Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard played the same position.
I know this doesn't really answer your question, but it does indicate that teams often have multiple players that are in consideration for the trophy, and there are some that aren't going to have made this list because of injury. (Braxton Miller wouldn't show up on this list, for example) It also seems rare that you have two candidates at the same position ever.
(I may have missed some things here and there.)
