Hey my football coach when I was 8 did much worse than this to me.  He spent most of the practice dragging me around by my face mask telling me to man up.  No one was filing charges tho because he was my dad and that was normal.  It's amazing how things have changed, and I don't think it is for the better.

 He still let's me have it when I need it 20 years later.  He also celebrated the most when I succeeded in sports and life.  I am thankful for everyone of those moments and I try to remember that and not baby my kids.  

This is a violent game and Krenzel understands that more than anyone. These coaches know these kids have to be in the right mindset, or they are going to get hurt.  I don't think this is about Craig's son.  I think it's more about being a football coach.

Further investigation on twitter leads me to believe those people commenting are even bigger dbags than this even shows us.

I think there is a good thing to take out of this and I don't have anything against Jones.  I think it's a good sign though that JT Barrett stepped up and took over the second job in the fall.  We all know from following recruiting that he has plenty of upside.  I just feel like I would be a lot more concerned if Jones was still ahead.

Let's not forget that we still have that guy named Urban Meyer who has shown he usually finds a way to score points.

Pts per Game over  the years Via Sports Reference.com for Urban coached teams.

2001:PS/G: 30.3 (34th of 117)
2002:PS/G: 40.8 (3rd of 117)
2003:PS/G: 28.7 (42nd of 117)
2004:PS/G: 45.3 (3rd of 120)
2005:PS/G: 28.6 (49th of 119)
2006:PS/G: 29.7 (24th of 119)
2007:PS/G: 42.5 (3rd of 120)
2008:PS/G: 43.6 (4th of 120)
2009:PS/G: 35.9 (10th of 120)
2010:PS/G: 29.8 (43rd of 120)
2012:PS/G: 37.2 (21st of 124)
2013:PS/G: 45.5 (3rd of 125)

There are not many low numbers on that list. I still believe this man will find a way to get this team in the end zone.

There was only a short window for me where the Cavs would have meant more. I would have loved to seen the Heat choke and the Cavs win first. We all knew it would never happen though. Browns. They had to deal with the entire team leaving at one time, not just one player. Would mean more to see them win.

Hey there is a Kilgus meats in Toledo? Advertising?

We were drinking some Craft Beer and it was 9$ I believe.  I think they have set pricing standards around the ballpark.  I usually go to the fridge area on the first base side where you can get tall boys, and they seem to be the best deal.  I usually sit in that area so it's a short walk to the fridge.  If you get a chance, try the Mt. Carmel Amber Ale.  It's a red amber beer that is brewed in Cincy.  I liked it quite a bit.

Easy.  Johnny Manziel.  You can draft him and just let auto pick do the rest.

In all seriousness I like Terrance West a lot.  I know Mike Pettine likes him a lot.  I think he is worth a risk because there is going to be a chance he becomes the starter at some point.  Tate looks to be the guy, but he has never been a starter in NFL.  West looked good this weekend behind a joke of an offensive line.  West has great feet, vision, and finishes his runs.  

Comment 13 Aug 2014

If you consider just talent alone, I think the answer is yes.   There is a chance that 3 players from this unit will get drafted in the first round.  Most people have Spence in the second half of the first round, and Bennett on the fringe of late first and early second.  There is also that guy named Joey Bosa who people seem to think he is on his way to a high draft pick.

 I think Hill will turn into a great player here and a potential high draft pick.  There is just so much talent from top to bottom and anyone could break out like Bosa last year.  Washington has the talent to break out at anytime and Urban just keeps adding to it every year.

The 02' Title D-line just got it done though.  I remember it seemed like no one could run the ball, and when we needed a big play they always were able to come through.

I know its not a huge part, but I love his part as Dr. Kosevich in the movie 9 months.  " You have a girl. Unless I cut the wrong cord"

Comment 11 Aug 2014

Yikes buddy.  Just pointing out that losing 2 games and "almost" losing another last year has nothing to do with putting together Power Rankings for THIS year.  I am sure the rest of the teams on the list had their losses pointed out too.

Comment 11 Aug 2014

Remember, though, the Buckeyes have lost two straight (and nearly three) after 24 consecutive wins under Urban Meyer.

 Whew.  Good thing he added that or I would have had no idea that ESPN wrote these rankings.  Also, that is a good thing to remember because that has so much to do with a new season and new team. 

Comment 11 Aug 2014

HaHa that is awesome.  Coincidentally mine happened my freshman year of college as well (maybe not so coincidentally).   It was the Bush/Kerry election night because apparently any event is a reason to chug Magnum 40's in college.

You had a much more fitting night for this life changing event to take place.  I think the Ryan Hamby dropped pass and hanging out a window vomiting are a perfect reminder for that night.

By the way, this made me realize I can't remember most of my families birthdays, but I can instantly remember the first time I duct taped 40's to my hands.

My first serious game of Edward FortyHands.  I will tell you that microwaved egg roles after 80 ounces of Malt Liquor may have been one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

If these are the terms, I am more than ok with it.  The Cavs didn't have to take on any extra contracts, and got word from Love that he wants to be there long term.  

They also didn't have to trade off any of their expiring contracts, which means there is another deal to take place.  I think now they will go after a rim protector.  

I loved Wiggins as a prospect, and he also just seemed like a great kid.  I think he gets the raw end of the deal because he would have been much better off here.  He has to be the man now in Minnesota, and his game may never be suited for that.  

It looks like the Cavs could have LBJ, Love, and Irving for the next 5 years. That would still just be Lebron in his early 30's, there is a chance for a real dynasty.  In the end, you have to trade Wiggins upside for that chance.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

They have to address the Center position though.  AV cannot be relied on to play every game, and they could really use a rim protector.  I hope they can use those expiring contracts that they didn't include in the Love deal for a rim protector.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

The Cavaliers wouldn't have had enough money to sign him as a free agent.  They needed to get his bird rights if they wanted to sign him.  Now they can clear the space to sign him by having his rights and adding more years.  

Comment 07 Aug 2014

They will still have 10.5 Mill Non guaranteed to work with.  People will also take discounts to play with these three.   LBJ is the best athlete in the world, I would be surprised if sees a major decline before 35.  I would also be surprised if they only won 1 with this core.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

I am fine with this if it's true that he has agreed to sign a 5 year extension next year.  There is just no way to ever know if Wiggins is going to turn out a superstar.  If they have LBJ, Love, and KI for a 6 year run, there could be multiple championships.   I love Wiggins too, but at some point you have to play for now. 

The rumor is that they are not giving up the Heat or Memphis pick.  That means they could go into next offseason with LBJ, Love, KI, and two top 20 picks.  

Comment 06 Aug 2014

I think the this is the greatest thing about being a Buckeye fan that sometimes can be forgotten.  We pretty much get to start every season with the idea that we should at least get a chance at the title   Urban has taken it to another level and gives us the chance to watch a lot of meaningful football.

I am just excited to start planning my Saturdays around OSU football again.

Comment 05 Aug 2014

I listen to 97.1 the fan.  People will have different opinions, but I have always liked Bobby Carpenter when he is on.

Comment 05 Aug 2014

I am a Browns fan, so I really dislike the Steelers.  I can admit though that I am glad Shazier went to a team with a guy like LeBeau who is going to get the best out of his abilities.  I really believe Shazier will be regarded as one of the best defensive players in the league in the next few years.  

He deserves everything that is coming his way too.
