im making myself a faraday cage inside a lead lined bomb shelter for the eventuality that we lose a game
no one should dump on anyone else for not liking the jerseys, but i think what a lot of people find silly is the outrage over changing a uniform (for one game) that has changed over and over already. if you don't like it, that's completely valid, but just relax! the regular ones will be back the next week and you can go back to enjoying ohio state football.
the outrage over this, this first time ohio state has ever worn a different uniform, is understandable. remember when woody hayes had the insane idea of adding some goofy STICKERS to a helmet (what is this, 4th grade)? i for one am very happy that ohio state respects HONOR and TRADITION and continues to use the time tested and true leather helmets, brown and red striped sweaters, and brown pants that have defined ohio state football for nigh on 100 years now.
as a true fan, this has sent me into a such a rage that three of my arteries exploded simultaneously which lead to a massive stroke and i am now typing this with the assistance of a helper monkey ive named wes fesler
EDIT: forgot sarcasm font. also while i understand not liking the uniforms in general, being actually mad about them is very, very weird to me.
i came up with it because i had to make up a poll really late on the site, and decided to give every running back on the team a nickname. i had been watching the three amigos beforehand, so i went with el guapo for hyde. the other ones were pretty stupid, so i'm glad that one stuck
absolutely kick ass. love that we got to have that in ohio stadium
it was 400, unless you count kick returns (i don't)
I probably should've elaborated a little more on what i meant.
truthfully, i don't think that dontre is a good football player in the sense that he'd be consistent and can make an impact in this offense, and that his potential is a lot of smoke generated by some decent-ish performances against really bad defenses. when hes played teams with a pulse on defense so far in his career, he's been average at best.
in the final five games of 2013, for example, he had a grand total of 4 catches, 8 carries, and 89 yards of offense. 58 of which came against indiana. cool. in the last five games of 2014 that he played before he was injured, he had 10 catches, 9 carries, and 162 yards of total offense (for an average of about 32 yards per game) and accumulated the bulk of that against illinois, rutgers, and maryland.
now let's compare him to jalin marshall. in jalin's last five games of 2014, he had 19 catches, 7 carries, 273 yards of offense, and did it against some of the absolute toughest defenses in the country. maybe i'm being too harsh on dontre by saying he's a middling player, but i know who i'd start if given the option between the two, and it isn't close. dontre is incredibly athletic, playing football is more than about crazy speed. youve got to run routes, block (especially in this offense), be able to deal with press coverage, etc. im just not sure that dontre excels at any of those things.
kick returner ≠ punt returner
i think he should be one of the dudes back there on kickoffs, and that's about it.
sorry you're wrong, the haka is god damn incredible in all its forms
nah its all good, my mistake, appreciate the correction. sometimes you miss things on time sensitive posts like that one

in all likelihood yes
typo, fixed now!
