538 has a methodology that updates after each game. They are now upped to projected record of 78-84 with a 22% chance of making the playoffs. I thought I had read that the Reds had an easy early season schedule and will fall off a cliff here in a little bit, so we'll see.
This whole thing just rubs me the wrong way. As much as everyone is preaching #lock, I'm not really buying it yet.
With The Fate of the Furious ready to hit, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Gal's contributions to Fast 5 and 6.
Wonder Woman looks pretty dope as well.
More confidence in Ray Small or Dontre Wilson returning punts? Both were clenchers for sure.
His name is on the trophy. I ran across articles from 2008 and 2009 spring game that both referenced long TDs by Taurian Washington. There were also a few Albert Dukes mentions. One spring game summary from cleveland.com in 2008 was referencing the backup QB battle (sound familiar?). Only in this scene, it was Bauserman and Antonio Henton battling to see who would be the backup behind Todd Boeckman as they prepared for their trip to Southern Cal. It mentioned Pryor being at the game as a commit. Some dark days in the QB room back then.
Interesting. I think most of the Spring Game Memorial Trophy recipients (like Small) that we like to hang our hats on come from the Tressel Era. It was almost a 100% certainty that the "breakout" overacheiving star from those Tress games ended up doing the opposite in the fall.
Varsity Blues and Coach Bud Kilmer are both goddamn American treasures!
WEINERS ON THE GLASS AT THE ALANO CLUB!!
Definitely not a glowing review for Das Boot. Kicking game is too important to just be "ok".
I had to have my entire exterior water line torn up in January, which left me with about a 30-40 foot path (a few feet wide) running from the side of the house, through the front yard to the sidewalk. I let it settle and over the weekend raked it all out and did my best to level it out. A lot of clay just beneath the surface here in Kentucky, so it wasn't the easiest project.
Either way - anyone have great recommendations on how to seed/fill back in the space. I've read and heard a lot of different takes. Fertilzer and seed...seed only...cover with hay, don't cover it..yada yada. I'm doing it myself and don't want to totally break the bank if I don't have to. Any recommendations to give me minimal frustration would be awesome!
I really don't care either way. No one should judge anyone by a 7 second practice clip or the Spring Game. I find all of it pretty funny. Luckily, none of these decisions are up to me or anyone else who frequents this site. I'll let the professionals handle it and snark along the way.
Apparently recruiting breaks everyone's sarcasm meter. It's not even April - there are 10 months til signing day. Let's all chat about recruits when September rolls around.
This is fine.
Maybe - maybe not - maybe I don't care. It's video of one ball thrown during spring practice.
There he is! The "someone is talking about JT's accuracy and I must chime in" spidey sense was going off. We were worried.
But he's so accurate during the spring game - didn't you hear?? Should be the starter because of that practice. SAD!
Barrett appeared accurate on his deep and intermediate passes. Joe Burrow looked accurate on intermediate routes as well but struggled at times throwing deeper.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE NARRATIVE?!?
Seems like this is just the Ohio State way to do things. Other past examples have shown coaches working beyond contract expirations on deals that weren't "finalized" or signed yet. They have to go through all the levels of approval and then ultimately have to be signed by all parties. I assume these situations are similar and it doesn't necessarily mean anything odd is afoot.
