Having Johnston has certainly given me more than a bit of reassurance when the offense sputters. What a great weapon to have. I still remember the long punt (70 yards or so?) that landed at about the 2 yard line and instead of bouncing into the end zone, just died there. Wow!
Does anyone else find themselves simply scrolling past the lengthy debates between MMan and those who reply to him? I have nothing against MMan,but if your comment does not fit on one screen, you should look for ways to edit it down to your point.
Definitely rehearsed. The giveaway is that the girl in the blue shorts throws up her hands for the backflip before the other girl's kick even starts.
Found it! It is at about 9:25 in the 3rd quarter.
At the Intriguing Unsolved Crimes link, did anyone notice this headline from the newspaper clipping for #6, the Cleveland Torso Murderer?
"Seek Name of 5th Headless Corpse ... Coroner Not Sure Man Was Murdered"
Hmm? Maybe some insight into why those crimes were unsolved?
What is the game clock when Gus yells the "12 gauge" comment? I still have the game on the DVR and want to hear it again!
Ha! I went back to the top of the page and looked at the photo, and you are exactly correct!
BTW -- I am watching the OSU-WISC game again as I type. The endorphins just keep coming!
Doesn't the program have a videographer lurking about somewhere who could fill the QB coach spot?
I don't think it is about the money for a guy like Herman. He wants to be the best coach he can be, and achieve the most he can achieve. That means someday moving into a head coaching position. It is always this way for the best performers. Lucky for us that we have had him this long. Hopefully he sticks around until a really exceptional opportunity arises.
Keeping Amari Cooper in check will be a key. We will probably have to double-cover him, which will put more pressure on the D-Line and LB's to stifle the run. With our D-Line, I think we can pull that off.
This season will become a prominent part of OSU history. Not to take away from the talent and effort of the players, but it is a testament to the staff that Urban has put together.
Let's hope Wisconsin finds someone really good. We cannot have a resurgent Big Ten without competitive teams. At the risk of getting beaten up, that includes Michigan. If we want to be nationally competitive, we need to compete in an elite conference.
Quite unrealistic to think that they could come with another RB with the performance that Gordon has shown. Still, I totally believe that they will come up with another RB who is among the best in the Big Ten.
Edit: I thought that the original question said Melvin Gordon, not Gary Anderson. Clearly, my answer above does not answer the question posed. Oops.
What a great article about Archie. He reflects so much credit on OSU. I wish every OSU player aspired to achieve the level of respect and generosity that Archie Griffin has shown.
By way of parallels, does anyone recall that our 2002 National Championship team barely beat Cincinnati? That team, like this one, grew enormously through the year.
This is a little off the topic, but I cannot help but say that the greatest outcome would be Alabama loses to Missouri, and there are no SEC teams in the playoff. HA! Can you imagine the whining and gnashing of teeth that would cause? I could live off of that for weeks.
Gotta say that I am surprised at the Bovada odds on UM's next head coach. I doubt that Harbaugh or Miles are interested, and they lead the list.
"Three and Out", the inside story of Rich Rod's 3 years at UM, should be required reading for any coach candidate. Unbelievable how UM administrators and Lloyd Carr screwed with Rich Rod, and the restraint he showed.
If it helps you, probably 1 in 50 are caught and cited. So that would make 75,000. That would be an average of about 20 per night (weeknights included). Thinking about it, that seems low. "Piss-soaked thoroughfare" indeed! Thank goodness for storm sewers, so it all does not collect in the streets like in the old days.
Troy Smith is a class guy. Congrats to you, Troy, for this additional honor. Glad you are a Buckeye!
...not to mention, having him back for both rounds of the play-off would be awesome!
Ramzy -- 3 apples seems like it displaces a lot of bourbon. Is that recipe for 1.75 liter bottles? Do you decant into a larger container for the infusing, or do it right in the original bottle and ingest the overflow?
There is enough time to squeeze in another playoff round between Conference Championship games and the bowl game start. An 8-team playoff does not seem so unworkable to me. And I totally agree with an earlier comment to bring some of those games north instead of making many of them de facto home games for the other conferences.
