Indiana and post season uniforms? DOES NOT COMPUTE.
Agree keeping it fresh is important - keeps us from re-living all of the "I want the old site back" forum topics. It's just funny to see Twitter blow up about who's wearing what at practice - like its the Oscars red carpet.
A true indication of the offseason is all of the #HOTSPROTSTAKES and analysis of jersey numbers. Don't get me wrong, any football talk is better than no football talk - but I don't care if the offensive skill players are wearing single digits or Roman numerals - as long as the ball crosses the goal line.
Street Fighter 2 or get out of my face.
Smith? I hope you mean like..Dean Smith? Because surely you can't mean Lenzelle at this point, right? Right??
I replayed it and did the same. Only one defender between them and had no contact with Sam. Lob was there, no doubt about it. To only be down 1 and 2 in subsequent possessions and not make any attempt to get to the rim - considering the whistle happy refs- is unfathomable.
Anyone else think Scott had Sam on the lob before giving up to Smith for the clank? I'd take my chances on the dunk for the tie rather than the step back 3.
Love me some Spinner Shells!
I might be wrong, but I believe that the vertical leap is measured from the participant's standing reach - so the player's height doesn't really make much of a difference. Calvin's 42 inch vertical would technically be higher in the air than Shaizer's because Johnson is taller.
The flip side to the condesceding "well spoken" comment particularly applies to football. ANY white wide receiver is a "slot guy" , "great possession receiver", also insert "great route runner", "works hard at his craft" and a plethora of other no brainers. They is also always either "shifty" or "quick" - but don't you ever say they are fast. See: Anthony Gonzalez, Wes Welker, Austin Collie, Brandon Stokely etc.
A few out there on Twitter said the proposed rule wouldn't apply to the last 2 minutes of the half, but that makes it even more absurd. Many have asked how a team is supposed to handle being down 2 scores with 5 minutes left - this would make last season's targeting debacle look genius in comparison.
I always had a relatively neutral view of the Ohio State Super Fans. I attended the first game of the Forgotten Season of 2011 and watched Joe Bauserman look like Tom Brady from 23AA, Row 4. It was also approximately 241 degrees that day. Low and behold, who is 3 rows in front of my family and I, but the Big Nut himself. Forget the sweltering heat, Big Nut didn't care. He had the full regalia on, gloves included. At high noon, this section (behind the OSU bench) was getting pounded by the sun. While most normal folk were watching the game and trying to just survive the day - Big Nut was adament about standing up, turning around and attempting to lead chants. His common phrase was, "come on, you help me out, I help you out." He never explained what that meant, but I'm assuming it had some tie in to that he'll get us on TV. So while Verlon Reed was winning the Taurian Washington/Bam Childress Memorial Early Season Award for Outstanding Performance, I was just trying to stay hydrated and alive. Big Nut WOULD NOT LET IT GO. For over 3 quarters we dealt with his annoying, in your face, forced fandom. Since then, I curse him whenever he comes across my screen for being such an attention hog.
TL;DR - I'm not a fan of Big Nut or Buck-I-Guy because they put their own "fame" in front of having genuine interest in the teams they allegedly support.
If anyone had read Jason's explanation, you will find that the site wasn't changed just because it was needed a facelift - there was a lot of functionality for the staff that was lacking in the old site. This new site gives them the ability to continue to give us top notch Buckeye coverage - for free - and gives them an easier, more efficient way to do so. How this is considered "risky" or some other form of similar thought, I will have no idea. Holding onto the thought of "I like it the old way" is the same as whining about "the way things used to be". Whether it be a website, program, OS, or any business - looking into and holding on the past only impedes your progress forward. Keep up the great work men of 11W. I salute you for taking a chance and producing a great looking site.
Sadly, I've lost that particular confidence about Lenzelle that he can score at any time. I'm more at the point that if he pulls up after a few dribbles for a jumper, I'm significantly more confident that it IS NOT going down - and sadly the same can be said if is driving the lane. He does rebound well for a guard, and it appears as though he can still be a high energy guy. I'm not sure what the answer is for him. I know they'll always tell the shooters to keep shooting, and eventually they will go down, but shooting at such a low clip for so many consecutive games can't be a significant boost to his confidence. Let's just hope he finds his stroke at some point, because what other options do we have?
I believe in one of the other topics related to the site, Jason said that voting on the OP isn't something that was brought over to this site. I think it's located in the Site Issues topic he lists in his Welcome to the New story. Sorry for not having the link readily available.
heard he whips up a mean quiche..
After losing to PSU, I'd be hesitant to call ANYONE on the schedule a "solid win".
Remember when we had people who could score in the post? Tank would just take his man to the block, demand it, and score. There is no one on the roster who is capable or willing to do that right now, especially when they need a bucket.
Amir has some of the poorest hands on a big at the D1 level. I thought the awkwardness he showed as a freshman was him just growing into his frame...it appears I'm terribly mistaken. Any center we've had in the past 10 years takes that pass from Ross and flushes it. Instead, he ends up on his face with the ball going the other way. And he's only a small piece of the problem...
