That "High Street Abduction" story was one of the most terrifying stories I have ever read. Some crazy nuts out there--even teenage nuts. Which I teach every day, btw. I often think--this one is going to grow up into a serial killer. Now I have to think they might be one now.
Remember there was more than what you see on the video. There is all that went down before outside. He should have stayed clear--and not continued in that situation. I was visiting a family one time back in my preaching days. Their dog appeared around the corner of the house--and he had this big gash about 6" long and a 1/2" thick going down his back. I asked the guy, "Man, what happened to your dog?" He explained that the dog had been bitten by the dog down the road and barely got away with his life. I commented that the attacking dog should not be allowed to run around loose. The guy said, "Oh it wasn't running around loose, it was on a chain." Changed my opinion of the situation.
She broke your "Happy?" My God, that's the worst thing I've ever read on 11W.
This wasn't his girlfriend. She didn't do this multiple times. You back off, you get away, you say, "Thank God she's not my girlfriend." For those who choose to have a relationship and stay with someone with those tendencies, then realize that if you buy a jar of mustard, you shouldn't be disappointed when you get it home that it's not a jar of miracle whip.
He is not just a competitor caught up in the heat of the moment--that is someone who pushes, elbows, etc. A trip is somehow cowardly, dastardly, and not worthy of an opponent. It is a calculated, premeditated choice that says I want to inflict damage on someone, but I know I won't get the same punishment as just punching a guy in the face or even in the groin. It is a conscious decision to be a lowlife, and this is a personality that is capable of doing almost anything if he thinks he can get away with it--but there is also an uncontrollable nature to this guy--look at his reaction on the bench and people having to surround him and try to talk him down. Looks like a road rage waiting to happen. Just another guy who won't take his meds for one reason or another. If he wasn't a basketball player he would just terrorize his girlfriend or his family, without "keepers" to hold his hand or pet him--or make excuses for him.
That guy is whacked and is going to do something bad to someone if he doesn't get some help.
Well, I just hope Luke Fickell took good notes all the years he spanned at OSU. His insight on the Pryor debacle is probably second to none, save Tressel himself, and he had to decide what to do with TP at the time. I did hear that he forcefully told TP, "You'll never play another down here at Ohio State," very soon after getting the interim position. It was a troubled time, and looks like some haven't been able to make their way clear of it. Looks like Terrell Pryor has, and good for him.
I read on a Bearcat blog the idea that Stephen Collier could take some grad school at UC and play there. Probably just conjecture, but if there is possibility of playing time I could understand him doing that. Congratulations to him for the early graduation, and to the others as well.
A very timely article written about one of the greatest coaches and one of the greatest people of all time.
Did someone steal his wallet?
I dont think it was the same outfit. Thigh high boots?
I have to admit I'm rooting for Western Michigan to finish undefeated. It would be a great story for them. Wisconsin would forget all about that 59-0 drubbing by us a few years ago.
Off topic, but why does it say, "shit happens bum juice" at the bottom of the 11w page? Hacked?
What the hell was mom wearing?
Coach Fickell did more to save OSU football than we will ever know. I will always be a fan.
You have to promote Larry Johnson--to not do so would be a mistake, I believe. Coach Meyer will be able to cherry pick almost whoever he desires--this is the Ohio State University and he is Urban Meyer after all. No worries.
I hear Brady Hoke is available. . . /s
I was not quite four years old when John Glenn's spacecraft was launched from Cape Canaveral. My Mom made me sit in front of the TV and watch the launch, waiting for the countdown--that sometimes stopped and restarted I believe. It seemed to me that it took a very long time. It's a cool memory to have. Thanks, Mom, and thank you to John Glenn--a great American.
That's one quality Heisman candidate there. He may not have the stats but what character!
