I saw this live and was pissed. Seeing this gif makes me livid. Seeing it on repeat so fast makes it indisputable. It looked like he was damn near about the grab the mic from the Fox reporter like he was The Rock
Great analogy. Urban knows how to spit verses at em...
Glad Matta took some time to answer questions. Looking forward to next season.
Spot on, with him being the future head coach. Totally agree
My wife tells me the song they dance to was one of her favorites back in the day, smh. Here's a write-up on the OSU one:
Looking forward to seeing him in action. Anybody who wants to be here and get after it is welcome
lol all good, PD. Trust me, I've never felt more happy to call the wife to tell her I'd be late coming home since Archie wanted to grab a beer. I was walking around the house and at work for a week like
I spit out my drink when I saw this. Hilarious.
I golfed with Archie in 2014. Like, full on- Spieth-ing it in the water on short par 3s with everything on the line, fish-tailing the cart in the rainy conditions, pinch-yourself-to-make-sure-you're-not-dreaming...type golf with Archie Griffin. Clearly one of the coolest things I've ever been fortunate enough to do.
A professional colleague of mine bought a round with him for the 2nd and 7 charity. He had me ride with him since i was the only one of the 3 of us regulars who wasn't a total hack (I am a total hack, btw). Everything you hear about how nice and down to earth he is, is totally true. He had lunch with us prior to playing, then stayed for a beer afterwards. No slouch on the course, either - he shot 39 on the front before falling apart on the back 9 in chilly and wet conditions. Insanely awesome.
Surprised you haven't caught him on the course at The Lakes at some point. I thought that was around your neck of the woods from prior convos. He lives on the par 5 16th hole there, that's where I played with him.
Eat it, Eisen!
Thanks for the video it's a great tribute. This is all so senseless, it's so upsetting still...
B1G weather. Drink...it...in
Agreed. That is a must-watch if you're at all a fan of golf, or Jack. I started to watch it at midnight last night, and couldn't turn it off.
It's a magical place.
I attended round 1 in 2013, and I'm not sure you could use a better word. I get the chills just thinking about it, it's one of my top sports memories. Good call on the food and beer - almost everything was a dollar, and the import beer was only $3.
The facilities and layout are exactly as you would imagine them. I couldn't find a spec of dirt out of place, nor a weed on the entire grounds. For guys who love golf, it's just the pinnacle of sport.
Pleased he made some statements about it. I know they don't have to (and probably shouldn't, even) but I was hoping Gene and Thad would have formally addressed this last week and taken questions from the media. At the end of the day, their track record in hoops speaks for itself. Still pretty darn good, but room to get better and improve.
The one thing I'll say that I don't see on here much when people comment is how Thad's guys almost always stay out of trouble, are well-spoken, and are generally great kids from good backgrounds. It's incredible the type of character guys he brings in. Of course wins are all that matter in the end, but I have to admit I cut Thad slack a bit because of how awesome his kids are every season. Very few issues over the years.
He's out of his mind. I'm just happy I got to make that public in a relevant convo. Barely anybody knows who she is - let alone how weird and awkward it would be for someone to be going around telling people how much he's into her. She's gotta be 15+ years older than him, and she looks like it
One of my best friends swears up and down that he's DTF that. True story...
I caught that, well played sir
Glad to hear. Several 11 dubbers called this one, so kudos to all of you who had it
Any of you that are old enough to remember OSU hoops in the 90s probably remembers a young B1G freshman of the year, Greg Simpson, who played here for Randy Ayers. I grew up in Lima, so Greg was a childhood hero of mine. Things didn't work out so well for Simpson at Ohio State, and even though that was ages ago there could be a lil something still there mutually between the school and the family (Xavier and Greg are cousins, Xavier's dad grew up with and is close with Greg).
Xavier is a great student, hasn't been in trouble so there's no connection to any sort of behavior, but for the fact that there's a history with the Simpson family and Ohio State, it's safe and fair to speculate if Xavier ever had interest in Ohio State - regardless on whether we had the room or not. When we offered AJ Harris, I was pretty surprised, and felt Xavier would be a better fit - but Lyle's journey to Columbus wasn't straight forward and maybe Thad had to cover his bases at the PG position. He ended up with 2 in the '15 class so there was no need for one in '16.
I love how Ramzy called one of his pics "the Loving face". Hilarious.
I went to his show in Dayton (his hometown) several years back at the beginning of his decline, and it was the most bizarre show I've ever been to. It was so awkward, and half the arena walked out during the middle of it - which pissed him off even more and added to the awkwardness of the show. Then it just sort of ended. Weirdest walk to my car after that, just thinking "wtf did I just watch?!"
UPDATE - I didn't see this until now, the 7th grader was 15 years old. Ok, forget about Katt Williams - how the hell can you be 15 and still be in the 7th grade?! I was a sophomore in high school!
Thinking about it, it seems to be the obvious choice. Not sure what you guys think, but that mini-series is one of the best in sports. I find myself watching it regardless of what team they're covering that training camp.
