I have yet to watch the recording. Can anyone explain to me why Bo only won by a point? Is the cutting of weight finally wearing him down? From the matches I've seen of him, he doesn't seem as dominant this year as he was last year.
Yes, unfortunately I did it all manually.
I took 34 teams and inserted (one by one) every number. The most surprising thing to me was how low Texas was. They ranked 16th in total draft score, but made up for it with the quality of their picks.
If this were a stock market, I'd start buying Stanford (27th), Clemson (21st), and Notre Dame (12th). And I'd sell USC (4th), Nebraska (10th), and Penn State (13th).
Perhaps one day, I'll have the time to learn how to make the job easier, but we'll see.
I could (and still might at some point) go further back. The only reason I began in '94 is because before that year, there were more than 7 rounds. Any scores prior to 1994 would be skewed due to a larger chance of more players not being drafted. Also, I'd have to change the score system (1st Round would have to be worth 8 points and so on) which would alter how I could properly rank draft classes.
Still, stay tuned. I just may do it anyway.
This draft class could vary between the high 50's and (if it's a REALLY good draft) the lower 80's.
That's an irritating thing for me as a Browns fan, too. They destroy Buckeye careers, and to add salt to the wound, the Steelers (my least favorite team) does such an amazing job at getting the best out of almost every Ohio State player on their roster.
Watching Pittsburgh is three hours of inner confusion and contradiction for me. I like their owner, I like their head coach, I liked their DC when LeBeau was there, and I love it when Buckeyes thrive there (which they always seem to do). Their fans though ruin it for me because I want to cheer for the Buckeyes on there, but I don't want to give their fans (that generally frustrate me) the satisfaction. I can't stand the Steelers, but I must give them credit for being a team that always seems to get the best out of the Ohio State players they draft.
It won't happen, but I really want Jordan to bump up to 174 against Penn State and beat Nickal.
It's weird to think that come Autumn, that last time we watched an Ohio State game where Braxton Miller wasn't on the team, Jim Tressel was on the sidelines. That amazing Sugar Bowl seems like a decade ago.
I like 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, then 6.
The Phantom Menace is not optional.
If you're watching in preparation to see 7 though, I'd recommend watching them 1 through 6 in order.
I forget what happened to Jacobs, but Townsend was offered by his home state team (Florida) late in the process and flipped almost immediately.
If you're talking about individual scoring.......
Takedown: 2 Points
Escape: 1 Point
Nearfall (top wrestler forces bottom wrestlers back to be exposed to the mat): Varies...
Nearfall (back exposed for 2-4 seconds): 2 Points
Nearfall (back exposed for 5+ seconds): 3 Points
Riding Time Point (when one wrestler keeps the other wrestler on the bottom position for at least a minute longer than vise versa; only applies in college): 1 Point
Theres also a bunch of penalties and technical violations that can give out points, but that breakdown and all its technicalities is a novel unto itself.
IMO, Lattimore (should his hamstring heal up) and Webb should fight for the other corner. Burrows should move to safety and line up beside Erick Smith.
I really don't want to seem snarky, but haven't we all known this for a while?
1) Noah Brown 2) Marcus Baugh 3) The New Slobs
1) Robert Landers 2) Erick Smith 3) Dante Booker
I think he has the mindset to be a head coach, but nobody can make their first HC position be at an elite program like Ohio State, and expect to be successful at it.
There are some that can hack it, but even Urban Meyer had to start off at Bowling Green and Nick Saban started off at Toledo.
Still, I don't see him leaving Ohio State soon. He may well become Ohio States own version of Bud Foster.
4th is what OSU earned. Still, I'd take them over any of the three ahead of them by the way they were playing in those last two games.
Mother Nature didn't want the bucks to win against MSU. Our boys will take the L and use is as motivation for next year.
It is weird though. Feeling like your team is the best, but not playing for the title. Is this how USC fans felt in 2008-09?
JT Barrett, Brad Kayya, Baker Mayfield, Notre Dame QB, Josh Rosen, Jarrett Stidham, Greg Ward, DeShaun Watson.......in alphabetical order.
I know that's more than five, but I just typed as more names came to mind.
2015 TSUN rebuilding year under khakis......10-3.
2012 Ohio State rebuilding year under Urban......12-0.
Khakis National Titles......0
Urban National Titles.......3
Khakis career winning percentage......around 65%
Urbans career winning percentage.......85%
The blue fans are watching the wrong animal planet because they seem to think the grizzly should be afraid of the salmon.
Agreed. The Adrian Petersons of the world are seen from miles away. Only a handful of historical players stand among the his talent level.
Jim Brown, Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders, Walter Payton, and maybe Emmitt Smith
It wasn't just a great play.
It wasn't just a walk off hail mary.
In the midst of a down year, that pay gave us the victory to endure 2011. That was the play that reassured us that things would get better.
I made the same analogy last week and it's still most appropriate. Braxton is the modern Chic Harley. They both run, pass, and catch...they're PLAYMAKERS. Most importantly, the both of them pulled the Ohio State Buckeyes from era's of despair.
And on that note, neither of them won an Heisman. But neither of their impacts can be measure in trophies.
Upvote to you, sir!
I'm sure they were champions at other things. I bet they have great personalities.
It's said that Alabama has the 49th ranked education system in America. They often question who's forty-tenth.
