Yeah no problem. I'm also a big DBT fan. Their songs that were written by Isbell were always some of my favorites so I kept tabs on him after he was booted. I love listening to what comes from both groups. Tremendous talent in terms of reaching their desired audience...and some outside of that group.

Nor would I. I was just expressing my admiration of his talent and production. I think he skirts the edge of "country" enough that he kind of gets lumped in there at times, and I don't mean musically. I feel like it happens because of the subject matter of his songs rather than their musical composition. The lyrics reach out to everyone, but they tend to resonate loudly with many of the same folks that enjoy country music.

Southeastern still blows me away. One of the most complete albums I've heard. Isbell is a unique talent.

The great thing about having a stockpile of offensive weapons is that it leads to an incredible level of competition between them. There are only so many touches available per game, and Coach Meyer is showing that he'll give opportunities to anyone who earns it. Rod Smith is a good example of this. He didn't get the time that Elliott got on Saturday, but he did get the opportunity to tote the rock in some important situations. Competition breeds excellence.

Here's the thing, in a normal year, roughly 1,100,000 high school athletes play football. Add to that between 65,000 - 70,000 college athletes playing football per year. What do you suppose is the percentage of these football players that suffer no long-term issues with their brains after they stop playing? 

I believe the steps we're taking to make our game safer are a great, great thing. But I also think it's important to remember that you aren't hearing about the millions who played football and came out just fine. Stories like those don't sell newspapers or draw television ratings. 

I have a house full of daughters, but if I had a son, I would get him started in tackle football by the third grade, if he was interested in playing.

I credit Courtney Smith with this win. Quick glance behind, game changer! lol Much like my wife, Buckeye women are top shelf.

Comment 11 Sep 2014

Thanks, you nailed it. Football Saturday's are a truly special time for my family. During a very hectic time of year, we can always look forward to those three plus hours spent together watching the Buckeyes. Win or lose, we still bonded over something we love. It won't always be that way as my daughters get older, so I'm going to treasure each game until that time comes.

In addition to a free education from The Ohio State University and playing in the world's best collegiate football program, there is steak, shrimp, lobster...........and massages. Seriously, how cool is it to play ball in Columbus?

Comment 09 Sep 2014

In the beginning I think he said "Yeah this is Paul!! You show I eat jack knife tennis black hole!!!"

I'm pretty sure he ended with "Let's win FOOTBALL!!!!!!"

In between I heard something about Brady Hoke and burritos (or possibly Doritos) and moving Gardner to D-Line.

I can't help but picture a shirtless, beer gut sporting, middle aged man, surrounded by 20 crushed Bud diesel cans, screaming into the phone, face burning crimson with rage. 

Thanks for sharing. I really needed to laugh after reading so much garbage over the last two days.

Joe Bauserman was "a non-running threat at QB".  As for J.T. Barrett, I can't think of a more inaccurate description. How can two people look at the same thing and get such a different picture??  Dude is most certainly a running threat at QB.

I should just forget about this website until February. I don't know how much more of this I can take.

Comment 28 Aug 2014

I cannot wait to watch Mike Leach and Washington State take on Rutgers tonight. I don't know what I'm looking more forward to: Washington State Offense, or the possibility of watching a halftime or post game interview with Mike Leach saying Mike Leach things. 


Comment 19 Aug 2014

I've hated the two QB system since Stanley Jackson / Joe Germaine. I believe there needs to be a clear #1 guy. I do, however, like the idea of a package or series for Cardale that can be used in certain situations during meaningful minutes during the game. Packages like this are somewhat cheap for the offense to install, but end up expensive for the opposing defense in terms of practice minutes. Plus they are just annoying to the opposing D-Coordinator to game plan. Also keeps a back-up QB dialed in not just during the game, but throughout the season. 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

It's not about the money or the team. It's about a young man who poured his heart and soul into his four years. What hurts is Braxton not getting to cash in on all of his hard work, blood, sweat, tears, etc. In life, as with athletics, there is no more satisfying feeling than achieving success because of the WORK you put in. The GRIND is worth it in that moment. That's why I'm sad.

God bless you Braxton. You're gonna be ok because of the person you are. When Woody said "You win with people" he was talking about Braxton Miller.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Remember folks, they scholarship the back-ups too, and for good reason. If you earn a football scholly at Ohio State, you are an elite player. J.T. is surrounded by talented skill players who can help take the load off of him. We'll be ok. 

Hoping for the best for Braxton in the meantime.
