My sister lives about 5 mins from Wright State U in Beavercreek. I have been down there to visit and it really is a nice area. Granted when i go i am only there for a day or so and not full time, but it seems like a great place. That area has damn near any store and/or restaurant you can think of, which is awesome for my fat ass. There are a few decent golf courses nearby too, if that's your cup of tea. Not a far trip to OSU, Indy or Cincy, which is an added bonus. You also get a good sends how absolutely huge Wright Patterson AFB is. I was shocked at how massive that whole area is.
I'm really torn as to what i think he will do this year. part of me thinks he is going to run less because of all the wear and tear he has faced, but the other part of me thinks he will go balls to the wall to get that Heisman.
With that all said, i think he is going to throw for about 2900 yards, rush for about 900 and his completion percentage will be in the upper 60's. i really do think he will get yanked earlier in blowouts to get Cardale and JT some PT.
Wow this sucks! I was looking forward to watching a few games. Don't have Direct Kick so looks lie I am now SOL. Not sure why ownership would do this, there has to be more pissed off fans than fans that are happy with this move.
Pitt: how much is direct kick nowadays?
Wow, i haven;t really seen any video of him before, but i am pretty impressed! Let's hope for his sake he can get the off-field issues taken care of.
On a side note, hat gets me in some of these recruiting videos are the quality of the fields these young men are playing on. I know that is kind of odd to say, but i remember in HS that most of the field we played on were just awful! I just turned 36, so i have been out of HS for a few months, but it seems that more and more schools are going to that synthetic/grassy "turf", which is pretty cool. It would have been nice playing on a nicer field while i was letting RB's run past me like i was the finish line at a Nascar race.
I would like to see the Browns get Watkins at 4. If he isn't there, I would actually be more inclined to trade down a few spots rather than taking a QB. To me, if you miss on a DE, RB, OL, etc, you can recover because there are so many out there. If we miss on our QB at 4, that sets us back yet again. I also think that 4 is too high for Jake Matthews as we already have a lot invested in the OL (provided of course that Mack is re-signed). In a perfect world, Watkins is there for us. If not, i would like to drop 6-7 spots, get another 2nd or 3rd round pick out of that and then take Shazier or another position of need. Hopefully Hyde will be there for our 2nd first round pick and we can get some depth with the remainder of the draft.
Just my 2 cents though
I thought i heard on the radio that the Saints were going to release Malcolm Jenkins as well? As a Browns fan i would LOVE to see both of them in Cleveland, but as a Buckeye fan i wouldn't wish that upon either of those gentleman.
I was using internet explorer on the new site and i thought it was a little difficult to navigate through, then i tried it on Google Chrome. Holy crap....WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! i i highly recommend going through Chrome, it really makes the navigating experience MUCH easier. This is also coming from someone who doesn't know s#$t about computers, so if i can do it then anyone can!!!
Amen Crimson, i do the same on my home computer and it seems to work better. Fortunately i have Chrome on my work computer and the site is even more impressive that way.
I heard a guy on the radio when i was in Chicago the other day, and he was talking about the SEC oversigning and he was really trying hard to justify it. I have just started following recruiting like a mad man over the past year, so i never realized that we may have 25 guys in our class today, but by the time they are all seniors, that class will typically drop to 15-16 with injuries, early pro departures and attrition. No clue if this guy was right about that or pulling stats out of his ass, but that stat really surprised me. I figured if you had 25 to start with you would still have 19-20 of those players in 3-4 years.
What a great way to start the day! So with his commitment, I wonder how that has us looking to close out the class? I wouldn't think Rod Johnson would commit now (he has been a FSU lean anyway), so i hope we can get one of the final D-lineman out of McDowell, Nnadi or Thomas and be done?
What's the deal with the 1-0 at the end of Butthurt Bert's tweet? Is that supposed to signify anything in particular? I want to say someone discussed this a while back, but i cannot for the life of me remember what was said of it.
Have to go with the Gamble pick 6. We had student tix that season in the C deck, and once he ran that back, pandemonium ensued! That game was the loudest event i had personally witnessed, until a couple weeks later when we defeated TSUN. I remember that season like it was yesterday, such great memories!
This is definitely exciting news! He could be another nice weapon for the offense to have.
I wonder how things are going with the 6 players that people seem to have pinpointed as our final commits. Lately we have offered another 2014 OL from MN, now we are going after a DB from FL (Rogers), and we are going hard after Thompson and i believe Josh Malone too. Seems like perhaps that staff sees a few of the guys on our current list going elsewhere?
Man this recruiting game is just exhausting, i can't imagine dealing with it day in and day out. God bless whoever does!
I haven't seen much of the Giants, but how is Big Hank doing over there? I know that it is unfair to look solely at the stat line for a DL, but i was hoping someone would have some insight as to how he has been doing?
I wonder if they go the route of keeping Orgeron as the HC and bringing in someone like Chad Morris to be the OC and assistant HC? I know that USC is like any big time school that can absorb the salary hit that Kiffin will bring, but i just think after Carroll left and now that fiasco that is Lane Kiffin, maybe they will want to bring in someone with more familiarity with the program (Orgeron) and a top notch OC (Morris)?
Ohio state 41
Wow, what a way to go out. Sad, but at least he was peaceful and was enjoying the team that he loved. True Buckeye.
Loved Malcolm Jenkins. He was an absolute stud and has continued that success with the Saints. If i remember correctly he was "only" a 3 star recruit who turned out to be quite a bit better than his ranking.
If i could i would take the first half under 27.5 just b/c i could see both teams struggling a tad out of the gate. Of course i am just awful at betting, so this probably means the offense will be firing on all cylinders and we drop 42 in the first half.
Can't forget Chris Vance!
51-17 Good guys
Do you see the staff extending a scholly to a Kicker and/or Punter this year? Any word on whether Frank E is making the permanent switch to Punter after Basil graduates?
I wonder how this whole situation has/will affect recruiting. With the creation of the B1G hockey league i think it will really bring some excitement to a sport that may not garner the attention it deserves. Hopefully we will see some increased attention to the sport next season.
I met Ditka in Florida about 10-12 years ago, and you are 100% correct, he is intense. I definitely would not have been fun being on of his players and pissed him off. I swear his hand was the size of a football and he damn near shattered every bone in my hand when we shook. Super nice guy though, had no problem posing for a picture with the wife and I.
