I'm going to go in a completely different direction here and choose to wipe out one of our wins (although it was later vacated so does that count?). if we self-imposed a bowl ban in 2011 and sit out that Sugar Bowl versus Arkansas, then the next season we would have played Notre Dame for the 'ol BCS and i feel very confident that we would have won that game. In addition to winning the BCS, we would have been able to hold that over purple faced Brian Kelly for a long, long time.
i don't recall offhand, but wasn't his first knee injury during the playoffs a few years ago? I want to say it was very late in a game that they were easily winning and there was no reason for him being in at the time. I could be wrong about that though. If that is the case though, you have to wonder how different the last few season would have been for him? Such a shame!
Franklin: Urban, Urban, is that shiny National Championship trophy in there? i want to see one so bad!
Urban: yes, it's in there. Feel free to take a look as that's as close as you will ever come to one. If you touch it, Bosa will rip Hackenburg in half again. Now get the hell out of my sight
I absolutely love seeing live stand-up. so many great comics have already been mentioned in this thread so i won;t try to recycle any names. Two guys that are really funny (well i guess that depends on your sense of humor) that can still be seen at smaller venues are Dan Cummins and Joe DeRosa. Their comedy styles are not at all similar, but both men are really good. I would definitely recommend both, and Cummins recently married a girl from Parma Hts Ohio so he is in town for at least 2 shows a year. Also funny is Brad Williams, who is a midget, but he openly mocks other short persons. It's pretty entertaining and he is in NEO in March or April i believe.
Yea i was a tad surprised to hear that and a little sad to see him go. I know he isn't in the top echelon of Defensemen in the NHL, but he has been one of my favorite players. He is 31, i believe, and he doesn't have a terrible contract ( i read somewhere that 2 years and $8M remain?) and he had a pretty decent year offensively so i am guessing the Jackets are trying to strike while he has some value. Maybe we can pick up a younger guy to mold into a decent D-man, but i agree that the CBJ net minders have been facing way too many shots this season. Hopefully they come out focused and put this Buf game away early tonight.
when i tried to pull up the temp in my car it just gave me the finger and said, well, you can imagine what it said...
Do you see any scenario playing out where we don't take a QB this year? I would assume the QB position is one of the spots where you take someone every year, regardless of the depth chart, but i figured i would ask the pro!
Breaking Bad was awesome. i think i binged watched that and Dexter in about 2 weeks after a surgery. i liked Dexter up until about season 5 or 6. They could have ended it there, but that last season was really bad. I just started Ray Donovan and that seems pretty good. SOA was pretty good, especially the last 3 episodes/
Playing against the silver bullets is a worse punishment that being suspended!
In all honesty, I hope he plays. I want us to win every game and to play against the other teams full compliment of players so that nobody will have any excuses against us!
Given the fact that football is such a physically demanding sport, i would absolutely take a policy out if i was someone like Eze, Bosa, or anyone else who is projected to be picked in the first 4 rounds of the draft. I believe i heard that the university is permitted to pick up a portion of the premium on the policy, so if that's true, then i think you would be foolish not to take one out. All it takes is one play to completely derail someones playing career.
I was watching BTN yesterday and they has a short excerpt on Xich's recruiting class. When they brought Harbaugh on to speak, he just sounded so awful! Now i understand he was up against it this year with a limited time to recruit, plus the fact that he only had around 12-15 scholarships available, but hearing him talk was absolutely painful! i think his response to every question was the same and he just came off like he was completely uncomfortable, unprepared for the interview and completely unwilling to be on TV. it was pretty painful to watch.
I was just sitting here thinking about next season being Zeke and Bosa's last season at Ohio State, and holy crap it's gone fast! Seems like these guys just got here. you absolutely cannot fault either one, and if Cardale has a decent season i hope he cashes in on the NFL too. The coaching staff is paid very well to develop players and having these guys all thrive in the NFL is just going to help us with recruiting. We'll miss these guys, but they have all earned it!
Yes indeed! Are you from the area?
i probably should have mentioned that the hat was in North Royalton, Ohio.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
So what would happen if a player graduates prior to his senior season, but that major does not require any graduate school. Would they still technically be on a scholarship? this scenario may never play out, but i was just curious if there's anyone (perhaps Hale?) who would fall under this category and how the NCAA would look at it.
Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!
Wow, completely forgot he was here. is he still projected as a Safety?
Yea Thompson was one of my favorite recruits as well. Just seems like a gritty guy who may not lead he team in sacks or tackles, but he just gets the job done. i think back to Tim Anderson for the 2002 team.
Good call on Munger, i almost forgot about him!
i really feel like next season is going to be a great yea for Nick Vannett. i know, he is going to be a SR and already gets decent PT, but i don't think we have seen just how talented that young man is. He seems to catch pretty much everything thrown his way and he is decent in run blocking as well. I think he will have a very nice season and push his way up the draft boards.
On defense, I think Dylan Thompson and Tyquan Lewis are going to produce nicely for the good guys. Hopefully Thompson can stay healthy!
I love watching the EPL, and painfully i have been an Arsenal fan since i was younger. Aside form any Cleveland sports team, Arsenal has to be the most frustrating team to watch. Great talent, but they rarely play to their full potential.
I would love to see more Americans in the league, but it seems they are all coming back to MLS. Hopefully that will bolster the MLS a bit, but i have real concerns how that will affect the US National team.
As far as the season plays out, i think Chelsea are in a good spot, but they seem to have a few head scratching games where they will drop points to an inferior team. i'm hopeful that doesn't happen this year as all i want is someone other than a Manchester team to win the league. Arsenal should hopefully bounce back now that they are getting some of he boys back. Your Liverpool squad has definitely had a roller coaster year so far! i cannot believe Gerrard is leaving, it just doesn't seem right seeing him in anything but Red.
I seriously just cracked up seeing this. Well played Tenn, well played!
From some of the stories that were told during the season, it sounds like he is a very spiritual person who, as you said, reflects upon events that have taken place. I agree with you, that's all this seems to be.
Call me immature, but i laughed at the name Richard Andrew Sniffen...AKA...Dick A Sniffen
For Birm, or anyone else in the know...
How is our Glenville pipeline looking for next season? i believe i remember hearing that they made the playoffs this season, but i have no clue if we have any of their top players looking our way and i don;t believe anyone from the 'Ville committed this season. Just wanted to see if anyone had any updates about that program.
Thank you in advance for any info!
Hell yes! If you somehow find someone who can do that, please share. That would be an awesome addition to any man cave.
