Stupid people do stupid things. The Internet forums like 11W, twitter, and others can be a wonderful thing but also can let the crazies out. People will type out things that they would never say to people in person. It happens in high schools, colleges, and the pros. I refuse to even knowledge social media during OSU games this year so I can think before I speak. I get upset at individual players but I'm a coach and teacher and am smart enough not to call them out. Turnovers by a number of players are a problem, penalties are a problem being committed by multiple players, and play calling has not been what an untrained eye like myself and others have thought it would be like. Buckeye Nation, the world is not ending we are undefeated. Go Bucks!!!
Lol, almost made me spit out my drink on that one.
I've been trying to believe in my head that they are saving Zeke's body for games where he is needed. This is a tough game and bodies get banged up and it's good to take it easy on him until need be.
Which Ryan brother coached at OSU as a grad assistant under Cooper? I know one of them did but can't remember which one.
I agree, the older I get the more I hate seeing these types of things for any kid. Obviously I can't stand that school up there and really can't stand that team and coaching staff but I want to see kids get a degree. Hopefully this will still happen. Good luck to him getting this straightened out and as always Go Bucks.
I like this. Good for them. At least they will look good while getting drilled.
Loved it, made me want to jump on 11W and comment during the game but I was able to hold off. Trying something new this season where I stay off social media during games until they finish.
He looks like a stud out there. What number is Gerald?
Did he handle his departure well from OSU? No. Is he an adult? Yes but only probably 19-20 years old. We all do,and say things in the heat of the moment that we'd probably like to take back if we could. Hopefully he gets it figured out and straightens things out. Not sure if football is in his future, probably 1AA if it is. I'm not one to say once a Buckeye always a Buckeye when they choose to leave but I do wish him well.
Keith Byars is the man!!!
As a high school coach I hate this new trend of kids transferring to academy's for sports reasons. I know it probably helps most kids but it takes away from their high school teams that they have grown up playing with. Call me "old school."
I have always enjoyed watching CFL games. I remember watching warren Moon play for The Eskimos. Didn't realize Ottawa lost the Roughriders. What happened to them and what is a Red Black?
They interviewed him on the CFL game last night that was on tv from Ottawa where he's from. Said his top 3 were Ohio State, Rutgers, and Virginia Tech. Though he mentioned the Buckeyes first and said he grew up watching college football and mentioned the ohio state to rivalry with tsun. Everything sounds like Rutgers from the experts. Seems like a good kid from the interview.
I heard the same thing. #shhh
Great question. Got me thinking of the greatest athletes in their sport that I've seen in person.
golf: Jack, Tiger, Annika
basketball: LeBron, Dr. J, John Havlicek
baseball: Willie Mays, Pete Rose, Johnny Bench
track: Carl Lewis, Edwin Moses, Butch Reynolds
football: John Elway, Dan Marino,Barry Sanders
I agree with you there and back issues. Hopefully he will get it figured out and make another run at a major. Seems that he may be past his prime with age and injuries catching up plus young talented group of folders out there not afraid of Tiger anymore.
Here's my issue with tiger. I'd agree he's probably in the to 5 for me but I question some things about him. Not sure and definitely not accusing but he has ties to a doctor that has been busted for PED's. It seems funny that he has had all these injuries that could be from things like taking PED's. Not sure and like I said not accusing. Great performer in his prime and I hope PED free.
He's playing for TCU? I've been led to believe by media and big 12 folks that they are indeed defending national champs.
We are going to have to turn studs away it looks like. I wonder if this BOOOOOOOM will lead to more BOOOOOOOMS quickly as DB spots are quickly filling up. LeCounte might want to pull the lever quick or get shut out. Hopefully this one leads him and Jackson to say yes to the best.
Me too! Used to sit near him for years at the shoe. RIP neutron man!!!
