I assume that the Bitcoin Bowl is just a joke to see if we're paying attention, right?
I thought the same thing. They are supposedly the #3 team in the country, they play in a stadium that seats 45K, and they can't sell it out.
According to Wikipedia, the list is:
22 (Hovarth), 27, (George), 31 (Janowicz), 40 (Cassady), 45 (Griffin), 47 (Harley), and 99 (Willis).
Yes, you are absolutely correct in that it would likely cause tOSU to lose a few spots in the US News rankings and similar lists. One could argue, however, that the purpose of a public institution is to educate the public. There are too many universities in the U.S. that are pursuing status at the expense of students.
I have heard from reliable sources that Steve Miller is a midnight toker.
I'm pretty sure Carlos Hyde wasn't at the top of the depth chart when he came off of his suspension, either. It's likely intended to demonstrate that suspended players have to earn their way back on to the field.
No worries. As a former hockey player, I can tell you that I've seen people blow chunks after skating one of those. They're variously called 'suicides,' 'ladders,' 'Herbies,' etc...
I think you're thinking of Herb Brooks, who made his players skate suicides after they tied Norway in an exhibition game.
I like their chances against 'Off Week.'
Will players still be required to hug and compliment each other?
For what it's worth, the article link goes through donotlink.com to avoid boosting the troll's page rankings. Well done, 11W editors.
I assume he wears #132 because he's planning to be four times better than Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
For what it's worth, Bob Atha was a walk on, and had a solid career as a backup QB behind Schlichter and Tomczak.
I am going to go out on a limb and wager that this is the first time Lindy Fralin has been mentioned on 11W.
This is probably the youngest defense we've fielded since the late 60's. Compare this depth chart from last year's Michigan game:
... with the one from this year's Michigan game:
You can complain about coaching all you want, but you'll be hard pressed to find a dominant defense that's comprised of first and second-year players.
33rd. Close enough.
Seriously. Harley may have done more for tOSU football than any other single player.
Yes. The grammar police have been called.
Don't mock Herbie. He also broke the story of Jim Harbaugh's hiring at Michigan.
The frustration with the D is natural, but please remember that there were only two seniors on the defensive depth chart tonight (http://grfx.cstv.com/schools/osu/graphics/pdf/m-footbl/2013-two-deep.pdf). A lot of what we were seeing was first and second-year players playing like first and second-year players.
I should point out that that incident followed a moment where Bauman callously snatched away a ball that Arthur Schlichter had intended for another player.
tOSU rushed three for a big chunk of the UM game. The defensive line is young, and has shown consistent improvement over the course of the season.
Ohio State has a young defense, and will be better next year. The only seniors on the Ohio State depth chart tonight were C.J. Barnett and Pittsburgh Brown.
Agreed. The D-Line wasn't the problem.
Ohio State was outplayed. Hopefully, our guys tip their hats to Sparty, and wake up tomorrow morning and get back to work.
If we do play Clemson, we can finally pay them back for the time Charlie Bauman carelessly ran in to the outstretched hand of Wayne Woodrow Hayes in the `78 Gator Bowl.
I remember a writer calling Desmond's Heisman pose "One of the most under-criticized dick moves of all time." I wish I could remember who said it so that I could give proper credit.
