My biggest question is about Gustin... never heard of him before this week, and now he is my favorite recruit. Seems like he could make a Bosa-esque impact where ever he lines up.
Of course I did... telling them Mike is just dumb and scared if he flips. I also said he must be getting paid really well, and that he probably could not academically qualify. I am sure I convinced them to stay committed!
All these coaches are human and it sounds like Mattison's mouth got ahead of his brain. I certainly have been guilty of this. Too bad for Blue it may have cost them a nice flip, but I don't think it is huge deal... In the prophetic words of Tom Brady: "This is not ISIS, nobody died..."
This poor chick... That is a rough night.
I just checked Mike Weber's Dad's Twitter account yesterday, and his Dad seems to still be a Buckeye supporter, though acknowledging it is his son's decision to make. When I read that your source said he had signed with Michigan already, I knew that wasn't true.
Mike will have made his decision by Wednesday. I really like his game and think he will be great for the Buckeyes, but if he chooses to play for his favorite school growing up, I can't fault him for that. I just hope the Buckeyes stomp him every November, if that happens.
I shuddered when I saw Timmy B.'s name, but that is some pretty funny stuff. Excellent work M Man.
This is a perfect GIF for this news. I wish Carlton success at Auburn.
All good points. We can look at UT's 7-6 record, as that hungry fanbase is, and say Butch is on a hot seat. But I think if there was a semi-functional QB (any of the Buckeye three), UT probably wins 10 games last year. They are as close as LSU, in my opinion. If they land a QB (and I haven't looked too closely at their roster to know how close they are), I think they are going to be tough.
A song I listen to every so often but never in front of my family or friends is Action Speaks Louder than Words by Gangsta Nip. I think it is one of the best gangster rap songs ever, and I doubt if many people have heard it.
I am in the same boat. I love heavy metal, especially grunge era, but I have a thing for 80's music. Banarama, George Michaels (Careless Whisiper only), Laura Branigan, and Animotion. Pretty ashamed of some of those.
I have a hunch that UT will be very competitive within the next 4 years. Butch Jones is a good coach and is recruiting well. People act like UT has been dog crap for fifty years... They won the NC in 1998. They have had their struggles since then, but they have everything a program needs to be top tier, and the SEC East is prime for the taking. We'll see.
The fans just cheer for the SEC team when UT sucks, so they always come out as a winner.
Sounds like Tommy Brady really let the air out of the press room.
I think people are oversensitive when they read tweets. I know I have felt almost an incredible high when I have scored well on tests that I didn't prepare for, and if twitter had been around then, I would have bragged about it. How is it disrespectful to say he got a B on a test he didn't study for? It is bragging a little, but I would prefer a player bragging about his educational accomplishments rather than things most 20 year old young men brag about.
I like the whole Hotty Toddy atmosphere at Ole Miss, as weird as it is to admit. They truly love their football, they are just not very successful. But if they ever play for a Natty, that place will go APE!
I have a bunch of @ tweets in my draft folder waiting to be unleashed the second I see the un-grey box.
This is true. Davis committed out of the blue, and it was great. Then he blew up at the all star games and stayed committed into late January, which was awesome. If he decommits now, it will sting, but the Buckeyes really can't feel entitled to his services. I wish him well if he chooses Auburn, but I hope he shocks us and stays with the Buckeyes. Let's see if Meyer and Zach Smith can work some magic today and remind him why it is really good to be a Buckeye!
Urban is a NE Ohio guy, and he was old enough to have heard of those great Browns teams with Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly from his elders. I would think that would be the ultimate challenge, except he really seems to like working with young men in college. Very much like Tressel. I think coaching college FB is almost a calling for Meyer. I don't know, but I would be a little surprised to see him leave Ohio State in the near future, unless he wins another four or five titles and just gets bored. I could handle that.
I try not to judge others' tastes in music. Glad you felt comfortable to unburden yourself here. The first step is to identify that which is within you that you feel compelled to hide. The free man stands tall and bares his soul to all. You're free, brother. You are free!
I think four teams is the best, and the primary reason is it is really hard for any team to get up to the emotional level required to win 3 huge games (including conference championships). Asking that team to do it a fourth time is counter-productive. It sucks there are going to be really good 5 and 6 seeds left out, but I think four teams are the best compromise.
Very excited to see Jamel play. I don't think there are any "can't miss" guys, but he has so much upside. Really smart, mature kid. I think he definitely sees the field in 2015.
Thanks for posting. I still don't understand why people post on threads to say they don't care... nobody should feel compelled to comment on every topic. If you're not interested, read the next post.
Their reaction was awesome. It is a Brotherhood.
Luck won a PAC12 title and the Rose Bowl.
