Really thought it was gonna be something like this... Being Iowa and all:
Right our of High School, in the summer before college: Assistant Dogcatcher in Champaign County... right after the County changed requirements for licensing animals (particularly for farm dogs), changed the process (in person, not by mail, and this was before Al Gore invented the Internet), and doubled the fine.
Sounds like the best "clean profanity" exclamation phrase ever...
"Jerry Lucas on a TREADMILL!!"
I agree that MForce is #1, but 1A has got to be the X2 at Magic Mountain out in Los Angeles... when the Buckeyes go to the Rose Bowl, skip the crowds (and cost) of Disney Land and head to MM... the only park in America that comes close to Cedar Point and Kings Island:
Looks like $849 in my "cart", but I'll try again.
We've all been sold a lie:
Wake up, sheeple!!!
Well, technically the Elliotts are from Alton Illinois (across the river, northeast of StL, represent!), but his high school (Blue Bombers... with yellow and not "m*ize") is a St. Louis powerhouse.
Wait... Isn't there a kid that's been verballed to Ohio State for a few years that we can stop calling on the phone to make room for Bruce? /Harbaugh voice
"he will now wait a bit longer..." ?
My favorite part of the Rudy Fap-Fest is the way it conveniently skips over his service in the Navy after high school.
I guess that portraying him as an out of shape loser rather than a former serviceman helps their narrative... and proves that this movie hates 'Merica.
Congrats, Grant... I'm so glad you've found a "home" for your amazing work!
Couldn't have joined a better bunch of guys, too...
I'm in... hoping my brother can pull some sideline passes as well.
Nice work, Kyle- enjoy the insight.
Didn't OSU try this against Michigan State as well? I seem to remember (in the haze of anger that still lurks with memories of that game) a pitch to Vannett that got crushed pretty easily...
Brother from another mother! Livin the life in Seattle... and you?
It's interesting to see how so many of these gigs are just re-shuffles.
And, how there seem to be very few African American candidates considered for these positions (or rumored to be interviewed), in spite of the fact that there are quite a few African American assistant coaches across the country.
Without getting into the politics/affirmative action discussion- does the NCAA need a "Rooney Rule"? Would it matter?
I think the Rutgers pick is a good one, but it might also be worth pointing to the Illinois game...
I can see the Buckeyes struggling after what's (hopefully) a big post-bye win at home against Minnesota, and then looking past illinois to MSU and UM, while playing in Champaign (where they've often struggled). That, and the Illini have found a little chippyness under their new coach.
Kid named Carman? From Ohio?
