Eze is the best running back in the country running behind the best SLOBS in the country. Even with this he will not reach 2000 yards. There are too many weapons on this offense that need to be used which will cut down on the number of carries that Eze will get. I think it will be in the 1700-1800 range which will still be the best in the power conferences.
Who are you betting on 11W? These are really outrageous odds against for the Bucks. There will be many blow out games, but I don't think these 4 will be it except for State Pen maybe.
Man among boys. There was no challenge on the field for him. His body and conditioning fit in perfectly for the Bucks offense. What a tandem of Branden and Kevin.

I like the gambler type to go for it on 4th and 1, but we also had a defense that could shut them down. That makes it a little easier decision IMO.
Marshall and Samuel are both insane athletes at that position. I gave Marshall the nod because he is bigger and can also pass which could lead to greater versatility. I am really glad Dontre is back to 100%. He will get his share of carries to get back into the game, but, at this point, I believe Marshall and Samuel are 1 and 2.
Why would a team put up a 5'9", 165 lb. back against this guy? They knew they couldn't block Blaine so who could they afford to lose. Number 20 must have been the sacrificial lamb.
Good luck Blaine. Keep working and get that offer.
I feel he needs to get off the ball quicker and be more aggressive. It is amazing that a young kid can be 6'5" and 315 lbs. Do whatever it takes but get that offer. Make your grandfather even more proud.
Agree, Spider, on Terelle being self entitled. He had unbelievable talent and carried OSU to many wins. It still is upsetting to me that Tress stayed so loyal to Pryor after all the off field problems. I don't think I will ever understand what made Tress coddle Terelle. Was there something in Terelle's recruiting that had Tress in a protect at all costs attitude? Character is an important criteria for Urban's recruits and I know Urban would not have put up TPs B.S. Terelle would have benefitted more from Urban's tough love approach than he did from Tress backing him at all costs.
Pryor said that he just wanted to play so any position was an option for him. There have been three teams now that have tried him out and I would assume he ran some routes for them also. It hasn't worked out. Pryor was a favorite of mine, but when it comes to business, he didn't fit. I am really glad Urban has a program for his players for "After Football."
I knew the entrance exam was too difficult for me to get into that TSUN. I can never find Waldo!
I am retired now, but while I was working I wore vests as opposed to sweaters. I let my wife sell the other vests but I cannot for the life of me see how my Tressel Vest got mixed up in with those others. I also saw her pick up my autographed Tim Spencer jersey. I grabbed it right away. I was never able to wear that jersey because it was too small. Tim must have had a 28-30 inch waist.
Sometimes when I read, I get the first letters of a person's name reversed. I thought, "Man, why would a mom name her son Cocky Ross".
I still have my sweater vest. My wife tried to put in her yard sale last weekend. I grabbed it out of some clothes and said,"I love my vest". She was going to sell it for a dollar. I would have cried all night.
I like to play damnit also. I like to play well but after my round, I just say I play for fun and exercise.
Don't block the plate and you won't get your ass kicked.
RUN JH RUN!!!!
This reminded me of when I saw paint chips in the air. I swear I thought it was snowing. People laugh when I tell the story but in reality, it is not funny. When I played in the old days, we practiced bashing helmet to helmet. I made it through HS with two concussions. My friend was our fullback and had the nickname "The Brute". The Brute played no matter the injury. His dad came down to the sideline and demanded that our coach take him out. The coach did for a few plays but needed him to play. Later in life, The Brute developed Parkinson's Disease. The last years of his life were spent in a nursing facility when he could not feed himself and could not control his bowels. His mind was not gone so he was aware of all the disabilities his body was going through. I don't know if football injuries were the result of his debilitating disease, but the rest of his teammates think it is very probable. Technology and awareness of concussions are at the forefront of discussions about how they affect the body. Urban and his coaching staff have made it a priority to educate players on correct tackling and rules have been put into place to help players. Football is a fun sport. Hopefully, it does not damage any more HS kids.
Hairbaugh keeps the rivalry heated. I am glad that he is the coach for TTUN. This makes it so much more fun.
Yes. Zeke is at the top of the list preseason. There is so much that is exciting about this season that it just makes me giddy. The trophy goes to a winning team which OSU will definetly be a part. It goes to an athlete who excels which gives Zeke a running start because of the way he finished off the championship season. The variables which are many will have the influence of the voters. Many like to vote for a person who came out of nowhere. That does not bode well for Zeke. After the championship game, Zeke is almost a household name.
