I haven't read all the comments. (Too many). But I was listening to a lot of blather from a Wisky fan @ my gym tonight. He FEARS the Bucks even more than he did with JT. (Apparently he never saw JT play). Point being: Cardale is 6'5" and 250. As Mr. Fulton's clips show, Cardale Jones can throw and is not afraid to bring the wood (see slobberknocker punishment v Illinois). For Coach Meyer's offense he is a very good fit. As others have commented, let him throw the ball early but safely and then turn the Monster loose on Wisco: E. Elliot, C. Jones, J. Marshall. The defense will play their finest game. Confident of that. Terrible pucker factor when one thinks about M. Gordon's potential to go from 0 to 60 in no time flat but there's always a fly in the ointment. Swat fly.
Great. Really well done. Learned a lot. Thanks.
No. You're at the game. You're an old lady. You are backing up a skeevy old man telling an athlete to go back to Africa and calling him a reprehensible racial epithet? Brace for the bitch slap. Reconsider my remark, nay, Dude Guy. Thanks much, Homes.
I'm almost glad that Bert and DirkSatan have championed this ass-munch "rule change". Here is a much needed opportunity for the un-enlightened to see what a cynical and self-serving bag of turds Bert really is. And it's a lucky thing, too. Had this not come to pass then Bert would have been allowed to pass from Div 1 to Div 3 (where he belongs, though, really, high school would be more appropriate) without people really getting a true sense of his Ass-Clowness. As others have pointed out, here is a man who sends his marquee RB balls to the wall into the LOS against 8 and 9 in the box 30+ times a game posturing about "player safety". Come on. The best thing for these players would be to make the field wider or institute a weight ceiling. No one with an IQ over 50 believes this "rule change" serves player safety. In fact the opposite is true. By allowing the defense 10 extra seconds to lug a blown out 350+ defensive player off the field, rather than make him face three whole downs in a row, you are perpetuating the biggest long term safety issue in football today: that is that human beings are not meant to weigh over 300 pounds and go anaerobic over and over again while slamming into other human beings. It's not good for them. Anyone who believes (rich) cynics like TuscaLucifer and Brot Bielema are proposing this "rule change" in the interest of "player safety" is a moron. They're proposing it because they are more comfortable with the (boring) pro-style offense and a defense that is designed to stop that kind of offense.
Also I take exception to a previous post that describes Nick Saban as "successful". Alabama did NOT win the SEC championship this year. They did not win their bowl game. They were not particularly successful
FIGHT THE TEAM ACROSS THE FIELD, SHOW THEM OHIO'S HERE.
It is indeed "Bert", Crumb. But also it's his "douchebaggery" that we thought might have gone South with him.
First, why is Bert the co chairman of the American Football Coaches Association? Someone screwed up here. American Douchebag Association, yes. But AFCA? And, come on, is there a man alive outside of Tuscaloosa who isn't sick to the point of vomiting of Nick Saban? The man is shameless. "Oh, I lost two games because I couldn't sub in my oversigned five star Frankenstein monster D linemen who are so huge that they are gassed if they have to play more than three downs IN A ROW! I need more time, damn it. I know what I'll do, I'll wake Bert up and tell him I'll like him if he helps me slow the game way down. I don't care if it's boring as hell to watch a snap and a giant pig pile form and unwind 40 times a game for a 2.5 yard gain. As long as I win EVERY SINGLE GAME and make 2 million more every year. And, well, sure, it's totally safe to have absolutely gigantic SEC D linemen roll off teeny weeny 240 lb RBs after every snap. Nobody ever gets hurt in these pile ups. But, jeez, if you make the players get a little lighter so they can keep up with an up tempo offense? What will happen then? How will I play my 3:4 without a Godzilla nose tackle? You're not going to ask these guys to be in aerobic shape are you? You're not going to ask me to come up with better defensive schemes are you? For christ's sake I just hired Lane Kiffin! I have my hands FULL. This is Alabama. Everyone wants to watch us. ESPN said so. Of course they don't come to the stadium but, hey, they have ESPN. No one wants to watch Baylor or Oklahoma or Auburn or Oregon or Ohio State. They play way too fast."
Hating. Hating. Hating.
I'm with you, KingsRite.
Classy. Fat, white and stupid is no way to go through life, Mr. Orr. To paraphrase Dean Wormer.
Good for Smart. He showed admirable restraint by not bitch slapping the two nasty old ladies that were baiting him along with Mr. Number One Fan. I know it's not politically correct but every time I see a player go into the stands and open a can of whoop ass on a fan who's been raining down insults on him (n-word or no) I just feel GREAT. I love to see the look on the "fans" face when they realize they just might be about to get their ass seriously kicked.
I doubt Ash was brought it and given complete control of the secondary without also being handed a heavy dose of authority in choosing the overall scheme(s) and calling the defensive plays. Crimson, you're right. As long as they're on the same page they can succeed. I don't know what happened last year but it sure did not appear that Withers and Fickell were on the same page or, sometimes, reading out of the same book.
A TOSU coaching alum vs a died-in-the-wool Meechy Man? I know who I'll be cheering for on Sunday. Go Seahawks.
Thanks, Bucks43201, and thanks, all, for the info. Latest story I read, there were multiple (4?) robbers trying to jack his truck but he didn't have his keys, or said he didn't have his keys, which took balls, so one of the dudes pointed a gun at his face while the other one stabbed him. Twice. Here's an instance where size doesn't matter. That's just a horrible situation. You have a guy pointing a gun at your dome while another guy stabs you. You've got to be thinking you're going to die. Prayers for Mike Adams and hope he doesn't end up having nightmares about this one for years. Got crazy lucky.
Exactly. Why did he apologize to Brent Douche? No need for that. Even if there was, you just don't do it. On principle. You let them fire your ass before you apologize to Burt Blowsallama
Okay. Does this sound a little odd? You're out to rob somebody at knife point and you pick...Mike Adams. Who is as big as a house. How big of a knife do you have? What, there is no one a little smaller you can rob? Who might be a little more, I don't know, intimidated? Look at the picture of him in that dumb Steelers throwback. Are you going to tell him that jersey is lame? Of course not. He'll squash your head.
Just wondering if there is something more to it. "An apparent robbery attempt". Money was involved, for sure. What does "earlier this morning mean"? Coming out of a club? Or going to get coffee and a head start on that Saturday morning work out?
Bert is just an incredible douche. Always has been, always will be.
But how painful is it that E Gordo has to apologize to him? Because E Gordo is too much of a douche to throttle back on the dumb-ass blather that gets him in trouble? It reflects badly on OSU. Here this guy, E Gordo, is standing on the podium @ commencement next to the President of the United States and roughly three weeks later he's apologizing to everything and everybody in sight. Including Bert Douchelima.
I can't stand it.
Can we have Urban Meyer just sit the little guy down and have a talk with him? About how this sort of thing is unacceptable? You just don't give a troll like Bert Douche a chance to make you look foolish. You just don't.
I'm Catholic. And, yeah, I'm offended. I'm also proud of my OSU degree and my Bucks.
Can we be honest? GG is a klutz. He's a Mormon klutz. That's a religion started by some swindler out West, right? He's making "jokes" about Catholic priests? Come on.
He wears bow ties. Guys with little plucked chicken physiques should not wear bow ties.
He pukes up bulletin board material for our rivals.
He's oddly child like for a university president.
He's an embarrassment.
He has a way of making bad situations worse (Tatgate, Tressledamerung) and situations that were okay suddenly bad.
Every time I see a picture of this boob with a bunch of undergrads I get the feeling that what he really wants to be doing is attending OSU, not representing it as the president.
Prediction: the remediation (another humiliation that most presidents would resign over, if they had a pair) won't work. And this dweeb will step in shit again and again until the University has to frog march his ass across the Oval and into a squad car. But by then I'll be taking ten tons more sht from my friends because of this scrawny dufus machine we have running around in owl framed specs and tweed and bow ties.
I want to vomit.
Looking for his lost Badger Bro-sierre.
Get thee behind me, Saban.
Dude, so true. Ozzie Newsome is nails. J Simon should have gone much higher in the draft. He's going to make the Ravens lives a lot easier on defense. He was a great Buckeye during some trying times. Wish him every success. Who cares if he went to the Ravens? The whole Cleveland thing? It's the pros. I had to cheer for a New England Patriot (Mike Vrabel) for years and it didn't kill me. It just made me really, really sick.
This was the year for the Hokeburger. And he managed a nail-biting 6 point win at home. Urban Meyer was a huge get as a coach. Everyone knows it. Just the recruiting implications alone have me walking around with a 24 hour smile. Then, when I think about watching the tail lights of the Walrus leaving Columbus ( hopefully for some shithole like Ann Arbor ) I get really, really happy. As many have pointed out, the tribe of Tressel cronies that we've been stuck with pissed away a lot of opportunities over the last few years. Without Tressel they were totally exposed. ( They were pretty exposed with Tressel but, hey, when you're winning you can overlook a lot. ) I hate Penn State. I damn Brady Hoke and his trolls to hell fire. The Men of the Scarlet and Gray are going to be college football's worst nightmare for the next several years. Spruce up those trailers, SEC fans. Throw some new tires up on the roof. The Buckeyes are coming.
10-1 with the lone loss coming @ hated Camp Randall.
