Seems to me that scholarships will have to become personal service contracts in the not to distant future. Complete with what we the school is providing, what you the athlete is providing in return and opt-out clauses. Personal services contracts are one way to fend off unionization (from personal experience).
Just another troll Andy.
Based on what I've learned about the physical abuse one's body takes playing the game I applaud his courage to walk away now.
More imagination? The first rule of an offensive cooridinator and/or QB is to take what the D gives you. When you only run deep routes that take time to develop and you fail to take what they give you, underneath and short to medium routes, you fail to exploit the weaknesses in the defense. Real imagination requires the vision to see the weak spots and the abiliity to make the changes quickly and exploit those weaknesses.
In the words of the imortal Vince Lombardi "What the hell is going on out there?"
As an Airman I would agree - two losses, ok three would be good. They better lose those dark vader visers by game time.
Thanks to my friend Steve for telling me about this site. Thanks for the update DJ. Is that pandering? Sorry. Man I need another beer.
CAN'T WAIT TILL SATURDAY!!!!!!!
When I hear (read) comments like that I ALWAYS consider the source, including the reporter Fowler who's had issues with Meyer in the past, and any coach three time zones away. Can you name me one truly great QB on the west coast? The kid at U of O is good but not great - IMO.
Grown men acting like children. A$$wipes.
When we played peewee football the only adults on the field were the coach behind the offense (he called the plays) and the refs. Our dads, even those who were assistant coaches respected the game and their place in it.
You're correct, he played as a true freshman so a medical redshirt should be available if they want it.
IMO the year away to heal and strengthen could be good for his career.
Yes Andy. And I just gained a whole new respect for the black & gold.
Went there and got a screen that says "....we are NOT streaming ... at this time."
Would've posted a jpeg of it but I guess you can only post things that have a url. Anyway, the link isa below.
Dude that rocks! Thanks.
I'm thinking of a drinking game with my buds :~)
Cam Newton slush fund
Now THAT'S a gif
I wish we had choice. My friend has WOW - his dad TWC and both seem ok with their choices, but they live in S. Cbus. At least they have a choice. If I had known (or bothered to find out) I may not have bought this house. Surely the local POL's are getting kickbacks from TWC to keep us locked up.
YES it is. If I'm on the jury and the cop says he didn't then says it was in between the seat & back after he's been removed I want video proof they swept the car after the previous arrest.
Not saying it wasn't his, just that the law says (in criminal court) beyond a reasonable doubt. Looks like plenty of doubt to me. And sloppy police work.
BTW, FIFTY idiots figting and only two arrests? Hmmmmmm
I need to add that Trey Depriest is NOT from Cincinnati. He turned down Tress to go to 'bama. He is from Springfield which is closer to Cbus than Cincy. For evidence read: "Trey DePriest is an American football linebacker. He currently attends the University of Alabama in his junior year. A native of Springfield, Ohio, DePriest attended Springfield High School, where he were he played linebacker..." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trey_DePriest
"Lack of AAU membership is another nail in the coffin." ??? Then how is it that Nebraska, which also promised to work toward that goal, was allowed to join in the first place? Their name still is not on the list. Just curious - how long does this process take? I seem to remember it was a hot topic when PSU was admitted and WVU was supposedly under consideration. The stories went that WVU refused to join and as such were rejected by the other B10 schools, yours and mine included.
So, makes me wonder what schools (besides Loiusville) does tOSU have on its list of "Do not allow in the B1G"?
Edit: BTW - Nice piece of journalism Kyle.
Great article on a trend happening across all sports; professional, college, revenue generating or not. Sorry folks but I barely see anything in the story or posts that address the real issues. Gametime hit the nail best but still no discussion on the real reasons why. Basically it boils down to technology, costs and accessability.
Long & short - Why drive half way across state, hassle with traffic & parking, pay outrageous ticket and food prices when I can watch the game on my 56" flat screen HD tv with all the bratts, beer & nachos I want in the comfort of my lazyboy? But this problem exists in NFL, MLB, Nascar... not just CFB.
For the same reasons tOSU is afraid to play UD. For reference see last years NCAA game :)
Greatest QB in OSU history? While you didn't 'get under MY skin' I have to respectfully disagree. OK he may be the only OSU QB to win a Heisman but to put his whole career over the likes of Schlister, Germaine, Hoying, Greene, Tomczak even the oft hate Pryor is unfair to them. Now if you want to compare to Bauserman, Boekman and Herbstreit now that's a different subject.
Bleacher report has this interesting story: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/415748-top-ten-greatest-buckeye-quarterbacks
Point taken BadOwl, but when you write for a major media outlet (USA, FOX, ESPN etc.) you're expected to write factual, well researched and well reasoned articles. Problem is too many writers these days get to write opinion pieces as journalism when they're clearly not, and editors don't control the content.
This story is an interesting take on the laws of supply and demand as well as the balance between wants (quantity) and needs (quality).
