So proud of the big fella! He worked hard and never complained so it's only right that he gets rewarded with a great opportunity this season.
Diesel is correct. He got that from his basketball playing days as a youngster. He wore 34 like Shaq.
2013 vs. FAMU. Sadly, my nephew was hurt and couldn't play but I still wanted to go and support the team. Even though it was a complete blowout I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Archie Griffin walked right past our area and my sister said "Who was that?". I just pointed up to his name and number in the stadium and said "He's a legend" LOL!! After the game, we got to walk down by the field and go through the tunnel the players come out of. Then, we got to greet my nephew and saw a bunch of his teammates as they exited the stadium with their friends and family. It was a great experience overall. Also of note, every game I go to we win big (Kent State and UC are the others). So, since it's his last year I plan on going to even more and the trend will continue!!! (I know it will probably happen if I'm there or not LOL!!)
Speaking of Taste of Belgium, they just opened a new one in Rookwood. The chicken and waffle sounds crazy but it's delicious.
J'Alexander's would be my recommendation. It's not super expensive and the atmosphere is nice in there. Also, if you're in the mood for seafood, Pappadeaux would be a great choice. It can get kind of expensive there to be honest but it is worth it.
Pontiac's brisket is so good! Good call on the Holtmann's too. They have the best glazed I've ever had.
Amazing to watch! I can't wait to see what's in store for him this season.
Whoop That Trick: The Biography of a Beatdown
I almost spit water all over my keyboard when I read this! Thanks!
Great question. According to Pro Football Reference, it has happened once since 1980. In 1993, Mark Brunell and Billy Joe Hobert were both drafted from Univ. of Washington.
I wouldn't be surprised if the draft rolls around and we set some records as far as players being taken.
No prob! Like you said, this is only after a few years. The future is looking really bright.
It made my day to see his name listed. He continues to make our family proud. Hopefully the icing on the cake is him being named a captain.
Good point. It would force Kerr to adjust and go with his smaller lineup early. Unless he wants to be stubborn.
I agree, it really is. I would only do it if I had too. For instance, if JR, Shump, or James Jones are completely messing up out there. The other issue is one someone else mentioned: no space on offense with the two bigs out there.
I would take my chances by putting him on Iguodala. I can live with him making shots sometimes. He isn't that dynamic anymore (if ever) on offense. It isn't ideal for Mozzy to guard any perimeter type player but Iguodola has a better chance of missing shots then anyone else between Green, Barnes, Thompson, and Curry.
Perry gets my vote. Isn't it great that we can discuss this and have different opinions? Just 2 yrs ago tackling was a huge issue. Now, you can make an argument for just about every player on the defense.
The issue that I see with it is the two team doctors/officials that cleared him refused to answer any questions after the game. They also refused to answer any questions today from what I've read. They are probably not obligated to do so but it looks kinda funny if everything is on the up and up. He's their franchise player so I would like to think they wouldn't let him go out there if he really was still messed up.
Great article! Here's a story that sums up the kind of guy he is: I texted with him early this past season about how he was doing on the field. He immediately started talking about how he wanted the backups do well and that he was pushing them because he knew they needed depth for later on in the season. The next week myself and a few other family members went to a game. We were seated right behind the defense's bench. We were up big and it was time for the backups to get playing time. One of the backup linemen was far outside of Coach Johnson's defensive huddle. Adolphus literally grabbed the guy, yelled something at him, and basically shoved him into the middle of the huddle. The player went in for him and each time they came off the field, he was in his ear trying encourage him. Adolphus is a team player and he's always willing to do what is best for the team. I hope he is rewarded with being named a captain. He is not a flashy guy but he is definitely a quiet leader and a great teammate.
Manny wanted to press Floyd but he was being hit with clean counters every time he jumped in. It may not have been knockout power shots but accurate and clean counters hurt just enough to prevent someone from rushing in. Floyd also popped him with short hooks when he escaped from Manny when he was trapped in the corner or on the ropes. Running and ring generalship are in the eyes of the beholder I guess but I didn't think Floyd ran. He used his feet to avoid traps and moved to the middle of the ring to be more effective with counters. All that adds up to is a non-action boxing match and not the slugfest that some people would like to see.
I fully agree!
I think OSU is poised to go on a Miami type run with the draft for the next several years. The talent level in the program is crazy high for most positions. Also, the winning culture that has been re-developed is a great help.
As a Bengals fan I would love for him to land here in Cincy. He would be able to rotate in immediately and contribute.
