Two Notes: 1. I love that even Bosa's teammates barely celebrated. The celebration personified "I'm not shocked, it's about damn time." Compare with Malik Harrison's reaction. 2. It was really odd to see Bosa not say "unit" and instead say "group" or "room." This team is really well coached as everyone talks like Urban....except apparently for Bosa.
Not sure which one of the many threads to post this in, but good article written by Tate Martell on the Grimes and Lindsey commitment. Apparently we were really close to a 14* star day (Martell, Grimes and Lindsey almost committed together).
Will Harbaugh also stop by and see his parents during that trip?
Well when you show me the still frame, I take it back too. He's completely crazy. Btw, what is dripping on his chin? Is that the blood that Kalis prophesied so many years ago?
Serious question, how long did it take you to find a picture of Harbaugh smiling not like a crazy person?
Since Nick wears the same number, I say we have him play for us. Everyone says they look, act and move the same anyway. No one would notice the difference!
I love that the statement only described the payouts from the first year the contract, when the dispute has always been about what happens at the end of the contract or next calendar year (deferents). What a joke.
Not sure if this helps, but the chances of this happening on a commercial flight are practically nonexistent. That airplane was trying to gain altitude as fast as possible since it was flying from an Iraqi base. Also, it was carrying a single, large heavy item that shifted to the back of the plane during that fast takeoff. Commercial flights will gain altitude much slower, and the weight is evenly distributed in commercial flights and will not move. Flight crews actually calculate weight distributions and I've seen them move people before to even out the weight.
More broadly and importantly, flying is safe. You could get on a random flight every day for the rest of your life and you would die of old age.
I love that both Martell and Lindsey are Buckeyes. When I first heard of them, Martell was a Texas A&M commit and Lindsey was his WR who lived with Martell's family and was logically seemed to be heading to Texas A&M. Funny what happens with Urban and OSU gets involved.
Completely and totally ready for the season.
Ugh, that takes me so much longer to read than if Gerry typed like a professional journalist. #getoffmylawn
I always thought he yelled like that at his coffee for it to do its job.
"Come on! You need to wake up son! If you don't wake up, how the hell do you wake me up! Let's go!"
Not to be a total smartass, but, 3 lines later, there's a link to an article talking about possible tweaks.
This. Just making it head first into the pool would get me on their team.
Hopefully Devin Smith
Not sure about the Zeke rumor, but isn't the issue with Bosa that the contract can have either offset language or defer bonus, but not both? I believe they are separate issues.
Edit. Lazy reporting from NFL.com. "This has obviously been a trying time for the Bosa family and frustration is inevitable. The Chargers are not offering a contract that allows a first-year signing bonus cash payout or one without offset language. They do not do so for any player and are buoyed by the fact that both Ezekiel Elliott (No. 4 pick) and Carson Wentz(No. 2 pick) have offset language."
Zeke and Wentz may have offset language, but they may have received an upfront bonus. That's the issue, that the Chargers want both offset language and deferred bonus, but Bosa just wants one or the other. Citing Zeke's and Wentz's contracts don't necessary mean the Chargers are right.
Thanks, but I'll wait for the single-game tickets. There is zero chance I'll watch Maryland and Rutgers play a football game live. I would like that alumni's contact information for the single-game ticket though.
So I've skipped Madden the past few years, but that is definitely changing this year.
God I love Braxton's reaction..."WRONG!"
This. Storm Klein was initially kicked off the team when he allegedly choked his GF, but charges were dismissed and he pled down. He was eventually let back on the team after Urban suspended him and other presumably internal punishments.
I like this much better than waiting and seeing if he's guilty. Reinforces that playing at OSU is a privilege and it can be taken away from you at any time if you break the rules. You can earn the right back again, but it's first and foremost a privilege.
Good point. I think Meyer's first move with Storm Klein was also to kick him off the team. Once more facts came out, he was allowed back. Could be a similar issue now. Kick him off, no team activites, etc. while the legal system sorts things out. If he's found not guilty, let him back. If not, then good riddance.
EDIT. Hate it's an ESPN article, but Klein was immediately kicked off and then re-instated after charges were dropped. Storm was still suspended, though, so I doubt we'll see Dunn in any game action early in the season, if he's re-instated. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8298103/ohio-state-reinstates-linebacker-storm-klein-team
The problem is Samuel, Wilson and McCall are all built like scat backs, and Weber and Williams both have freshmen eligibility. Dunn's experience would have been very useful in that position group.
Whatever Dunn did, I hope he learns from this and becomes a better person for it. He at least has his degree so he can transfer to another school and play right away.
Yea...drinking and driving is not a joking matter. With all of the resources available now to get home, there's no excuse for making that decision.
