The kick sets up the "flip" - a pretty classic kung fu movie set up. Normal people that get into an impromptu fight don't usually do kicks and flips. There's maybe two or three punches and then they clinch up and start wrestling.

I think he got in Ferguson's dog house and couldn't find a way out. Fletcher was the golden boy for a while and that's who Pogba would have stolen time from.

Having a dad and an uncle that played in the pros makes it more likely that he'll go early. They would have taught him to get the money while he can.

Definitely rehearsed. The girl in grey pulled her punch, but I think it's way more fun that they choreographed this than if it's a real fight.

It seems like people are running the girlfriend down because they don't want Barrett to be guilty. We don't know the facts, but taken at face value the situation is very concerning. Let's put it this way, if he weren't an OSU athlete, how many of us would give him the benefit of the doubt? At any rate, we shouldn't blame the alleged victim or vilify her before the matter is resolved, and if you think the matter is resolved you're just kidding yourself. Let's not be FSUTwitter, this fan base is better than that.

So disappointing. I really hope this works out for the best for all concerned. At any rate, if another tOSU athlete is reading this (or really anyone whose professional life can be ruined by even a suspicion of domestic violence), don't try to take away someone's phone; you have no right to the phone and your attempt will only lead to a physical confrontation.

Sorry, no. TTUN is still one of the best 10 head coaching jobs in the country, even if they didn't respect themselves enough to hire someone better than Hoke the last time around. Herman would have to be delighted to go from being an assistant to being a head coach at a place like that. TTUN always recruits well when they have someone halfway competent in change, I don't think Herman would be worried about that. But I don't see them hiring Herman, more like Freeze, Richt, Bob Stoops, Gary Patterson, etc

Sure, that makes perfect sense, schedule a game against a lower division team you never should have lost to in the first place seven years after the fact just to humiliate them as much as possible. I'm sure those players at Appy State, who were probably only considering middle school when the last game was played, will learn their lesson: Don't mess with Michigan. Yeah, that seems like something a Michigan Man would do.

Love is only 25, so the Cavs would not be choosing the present over the future by trading for him. I agree that if the Cavs can keep Wiggins and still get Love it would be amazing

It's easy to get hyperbolic based on a highlight reel, but in those colors, and with that elusiveness, change of speed, and vision, George Hill reminds me of Barry Sanders.

Now it's being reported as possession of drugs (heroin) and drug paraphernalia - not good for his chances of staying on team, if true. http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2014/07/05/former-ehs-football-player-osu-athlete-tracy-sprinkle-arrested/

Here's another story on this: http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2014/03/a_shift_in_ohio_states_linebac.html. It makes sense to me but contradicts a lot of what we'd heard recruiting and strategy wise.

Any word on who "won" the circle drill between the freshmen?  I'm getting pumped up for the season!!
