The web article was interesting. I personally have stopped going to some sites because they take forever to load or are littered with overlay ads.
Didn't we have a player grey shirt this past recruiting class? I thought it was to help put some additional time between him and the current starter. What makes that situation different? Seems like a good decision for both player and team.
I would think that drive platform would be designed NOT to slip when wet, but I'm old, and afraid of heights.
Caution, this could be the Ohio Highway Patrol's new process to start a DUI check-point.
Coach Combs at his calmest, leading the team through daily meditation
I own a small company. I would be willing to pay (insert all 2017 recruit names here) $10 million to appear next year with my companies logo.
I think this is the situation the NCAA would like to avoid
you can't win them all if you don't win the first one!
As we know all too well, there are skeletons in everyone's closets.
where does he stand with regards to wins by starting QB?
Landon quit on the team. Go back, read the articles at the time and understand where the team was in trying to qualify. The were in a tough spot. Then he quit. The situation was dire. The team rebounded and got hot without him. The WC announcers are like the ESPN/ABC announcers doing Buckeye football games. They talk to the 90% of casual fans, and really don't know the details and nuances like the 11w family. They know the stars. They don't know Collier and Burrow squared off in the circle drill during spring practice. The easy comments are to disagree with Jurgen because of the Landon name and his success. Jurgen told Landon, if you quit now, I won't consider your past history and success in evaluating you for the WC team. It will be strictly what you bring talent wise. Then Landon shows up fat and in poor form for the final camp, he's out. Tough call, but absolutely the right call.
Landon quit on the team in the middle of WC qualifying. Quit. Left the team when they were in a tough spot and not sure of qualifying. Then wanted back in after the other guys qualified the team. Nope. He then showed up fat for camp leading into WC. Watch the videos of the road to Brazil, he was very much out of shape. Juegen had no choice but to leave him off the roster. Best thing for the team.
As Arsenal stated, the players have regressed. They are technically deficient. MLS has helped the second teir CONCACAF countries and HURT the top US players. The US players get lazy, but still have sucess in MLS. They don't train against the best, so they pick up bad habits ( I.e terrible first touches.).
I put most on this on players. Our top players took the easier path to personal success in the MLS. And it has hurt the national team
I love the MLS for games and player exposure, but it doesn't come close to Euro leagues. Same can be said about South American leagues. Best players leave for better competition and to get better.
They're keeping it low budget, so they can re-distribute as much money as possible to the players....
My interpretation of Fans post that it was negative in nature.
He asked, how's the progress? Perfectly fine question. But then clarified and asked if "he hasnt lived up in the weight room or practice" I took that as a negative tone to the question. Just my opinion and interpretation of how the post was slanted.
I like the grad transfer rule. It's incentive for a student-athlete to get their degree, it opens up options for them.
This is one rule the NCAA has right!
any chance we posters can police this by downvoting comments with names in them?
It makes me appreciate the previous title a little more...
Harbaugh prefers the Army all-american weight in.
what if he came to a recruits house for a sleepover and the dude from "to catch a predator" was there with cameras... funny.
Sometimes investors make decisions that don't make financial sense, but make preceived improvements to something THEY value. As an example, I don't think it made financial sense for Phil Knight to build a multi million dollar football complex then donate it to the university. Would Knight pay $500k for a player to be in Nike commercial? Maybe. Not picking on Knight, he's just the only rich dude I know that opening donates to his school. There are hundreds of others.
I'll be upfront on this, I don't really know any Buckeye players, (current or past), and I still cheer for them and hope they have success in life.
I wonder if Belichick is still salty with Mangini? I thought he was against him leaving the Pats for the Jets. Its been a few years, but this could be an advantage to Vrabel if Kelly calls and checks with Belichick.
He missed the bus looking for some cloths that fit.
I'm watching. Its college football, the best game around. I might not care who wins and I might fall asleep before its over, but its still college football.
Kelly has been there 5 or 6 years already, any "rebuilding" is because he broke it the first time.
