Today, Rich Rod just triumphed over the fussy coaches and also made me a fan of his. Bravo coach.
Nothing against the way it's been done, I love going to the Championship games at Massilon and Canton ... but you can't tell me a kid (even if they aren't a Buckeye fan) wouldn't be more pumped to play in the Shoe for a state title?
And on a side note, agreed DJ BYRNES ... I'm not from NE Ohio (NW Ohio) but I've gone to enough of those games to be pretty familiar and it is still confusing / difficult a lot of the time.
Elliot a stud and with the options for RB/WR/TE/Dontre that Braxton will have I just have a gut feeling Elliot is going to shine. That's not to say the other guys aren't going to have big years, hopefully it's a record setting year for him, Wilson and Braxton, time will tell.
I'm angry / sad at the same time, and you article just made me realize exactly why. You never disappoint Ramzy.
Great use of The Big Lebowski ... made me smile.
I don't think my co-workers appreciate the new holes I just put in my cubicle walls.
I know there are people that will have a problem with this, and those are the type of people that probably resemble Paul Finebaum.
Agreed, Warinner is a must keep. He's done an awesome job with the O-Line.
I'm not quite over what happened last Saturday, but as I'm slowly coming out of it .. all of the bright spots ahead are making the transition easier.
It's crazy to think this season is almost at a close ... but I'll be damned if I'm not going to enjoy the hell out of an Orange Bowl victory over Clemson. And when that game clock hits zero it's on to the next one, the beginning of the 2014 season!
I'm still stuck somewhat between Denial and Anger ... sorry I suck at hurdles.
EDIT: When I say suck, I mean I keep thinking I've cleared the first stage only to realize my feet have fumbled it up again, I've regressed back to denial and am starting over out of pride. This one could take a while, hope I'm through each by Jan. 3rd.
Hulk Hogan, a true American Hero.
I think they are changing the name of the award to the:
B1G Usually Iowa or Some Other Semi-Successful Season Coach of the Year Award
It's wordy but it fits the trend of winners.
I've never been happier with a GIF file than at this very moment.
Thank God these monstrosities won't be worn by our young men for the foreseeable future.
I would listen to that every single day.
There hasn't been a finer first comment to any thread ... ever.
Disappointed .... yeah of course who wouldn't be with a 25 game win streak and an offense that is starting to look like it was supposed to all season.
But the Granddaddy of Them All isn't a bad consolation.
It's amazing to see a young man with his talent except his actions, take the punishment and then prove to his coaches, his teammates, his family, his friends and all of us fans that he loves this game and the University. He made his mistakes, paid the price and is now showing how much of a true man he is by not denying his faults and excelling on the field.
All that seriousness aside ... forget Marshawn Lynch and his "Beast Mode" ... the real best is named El Guapo and is putting together a highlight reel senior season, improving his draft stock, and all the while helping lead this team to victory each and every week.
Bravo Carlos, stay hungry.
Has LSUFreek ever had a bad GIF? Everyone I see seems to be pretty good.
I think we'd match up better with Alabama than the other two. IMO more so on the offensive style that a lot of people are saying, Bama has a traditional Pro-Style offense as opposed to the Spread (we typically have problems defending this style), but the way we are playing, defensively, all three are reallllllly tough matchups at the present time.
Ask me again at the end of November I might be thinking differently.
National Title shot or not, if we finish 14 - 0 with a B1G title, a Rose Bowl win and a 26 game win streak ... tell me again what better team there is out there?
EDIT: Great article Kyle, something championship teams need to have is the family mentality and it's evident at every level.
Crazy to think coming into the season our supposed weakness on defense was our line and now it's one of the strongest units on the entire team. Just goes to show the recruiting and coaching we have is second to none.
We may not be as explosive, score as many points as some of the other teams out there, but we haven't lost a game in 652 days ... and it isn't happening anytime soon.
Thank you my captain, your articles always inspire and also bring us back down to earth and let us know to relax sometimes. Another well written masterpiece by the man himself.
This may have been stated before, but every time I see the pictures for your articles I'm reminded of lens flare ... lots and lots of beautiful lens flare.
