A preferred walk on is when they invite you to join the team without a scholarship.
A regular walk on is where your friend dies so you have a breakdown and go to a junior college next door to the school you want to go to for two years. Then you show up at practice and try to make the team. The coaches try to use you as a cheap motivational ploy for the good players, who all hate you. You get one lousy tackle in your entire career and they carry you off the field sarcastically. Then you embellish the story and they make a crappy movie about it. Then you get in trouble with the SEC for trying to inflate the stock price for your crappy sports drink company.
"Considered the eighth-best safety and No. 69 overall prospect"
Banner year for safeties I guess.
I root for a school in Ann Arbor. I am a graduate of Concordia University.
They haven't done much yet, but the minute UNC-Charlotte hired Mark Price they became my second favorite B-ball team.
Also as many have said I want to see heir apparent Tom Herman do well.
I understand tattoo removal is painful and expensive.
I'm picturing OSU scoring a TD to go up 20 with a minute left and a bunch of furniture store customers screaming at their TVs to go for 2.
Urban will take the Buckeyes to the White House at least once in each of the next four presidential terms in office. After that, head coach Tom Herman will take the Buckeyes to visit the Meyer administration in the White House.
Raekwon McMilllan can.
I am a teacher and every day there is a big snow predicted I always try to convince myself that there will not be a snow day and that I shouldn't get my hopes up. That way I am pleasantly surprised and not disappointed when it doesn't happen.
This is pretty much the same thing.
I wear Buckeye stuff all over Macomb county and no one says boo to me.
It makes sense for Mike Weber to feel hurt. That is the natural emotional reaction to news like this. However after a few days emotion needs to fade and thinking needs to take over instead. See who they hire as RB coach. Think over your decision and if you really still want out at that point then ask for your release (which I would hope they would give him.) I have a feeling though that once the emotion passes and thinking kicks in he will realize he's got it pretty good and stay.
Regardless of what happens with Weber though, someone needs to explain to me how it helps the player for his former coach to spout off to the media. When Wilcher makes it all about him being "disrespected" he makes it hard for me to think this is really about Weber's best interest. It also makes me find it hard to think of him as a rational adult.
No pressure or anything, but if the site crashes on National Signing Day I might die.
They should have refused to take the picture unless there was also a fan of Nebraska in it. You have to share.
I don't care if this article is about Basketball. No 11 W article should go without a comment about Cardale Jones this week.
You know what I notice about all of those stats? They're great!
One of the most fun parts for me has been watching the haters and Michigan men go through the stages of grief on twitter. The anger and depression are obvious. I've seen statements of blatant denial such as "They didn't deserve to be in the playoff in the first place." and "Now they should play TCU." I think a lot of statements, like the one above about them having bad jobs someday could be considered bargaining. I would throw in things like "But they ran up the score by scoring that last touchdown against a team that just won by 40," and "But some college kids set some stuff on fire," as bargaining as well. When I realize that it is an expression of grief it makes me less angry at their whining and makes it more fun. Perhaps a repeat would do a lot to move them down the road to acceptance.
I'm thinking it was an arranged marriage where he made his daughter wed a young man he believed to be an up and coming future coordinator so he would get first crack at him. Urban is a genius!
Seeing as how he might be 5th string next year behind Braxton, Barrett, Gibson and Burrow, might be nice to know a position change to defense is not out of the question.
How did we get TTUN to hire a Buckeye sleeper agent in the first place and how do we do it again?
