Not gonna lie. I'm majorly disappointed that Herman would give the enemy advice on how to beat us. Tom, did your years here mean nothing? I hope that paycheck from Bama was worth selling your soul.
Have to confess, really disappointed by this nugget:
Not after Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart talked earlier this month about Alabama bringing former Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman to Alabama to give the Tide staff pointers about how Ohio State beat them.
C'mon Tom. Where's the loyalty? Don't help those scumbags.
Not sure what you mean by that. 13th amendment ended slavery. 14th was a "Reconstruction Amendment" to address citizen rights and equal protection of former slaves in the south. (Which they promptly ignored for the better part of 80 years.) Confederate states had to ratify it to get their representation back in Congress.
The south is lovely with the exception of redneck thinking. And it is out in force here in rural NC. Over the last 2 weeks, I've seen about 20-30 confederate battle flags pop-up in places where they weren't before. I see USA Today is reporting the country is split 42% to 42% over whether the confederate flag is racist. I suspect that stat is being skewed by southern pollsters. IMO the majority of NC locals see the flag as a symbol of their "southern heritage" but just aren't ready to make an issue of it.
A colleague I work with cued me in to a position in the Houston area for which I'm uniquely qualified and for a lot more money. Ugh... why can't these jobs start popping up in the midwest or PA!? I'm ready to come home tbh.
Yeah, I feel that any mention of that woman should be followed by a warning not to google that name while at work.
When I think of Temecula I envision of lot of angry, white, pot-bellied, middle-aged guys yelling and poking their fingers into each other chests. Dropping f-bombs and what-not
No real fighting of course.
/Someone needs to make a tv show about that. I'd watch it.
This is for the Georgia redneck leaving DJ voicemails.
All-time, Ohio State is 22-13-3 against the SEC. link
Get your facts straight dick.
* And that's not even counting the 2011 Sugar Bowl victory against Arkansas.
If Delany really wants to shut up the southern cry-babies, he should also start mentioning 4-year-guaranteed scholarships as a reciprocal action (in addition to oversigning, grayshirting, "flipping" committed players, and 7-on-7 camps). "Sure we'll agree to a new bylaw outlawing satellite camps if you agree to a bylaw that requires guaranteed-4-year scholarships."
Watch how quick satellite camps become a non-issue.
I also wish Urban would rethink his position on satellite-camps. How long ago was it that he chastised the league for not being competitive enough in recruiting? Well, it appears some programs are taking that BTN money and showing what they can do with it. IMO the quadrangle-of-hate schools should be all over these satellite camps.
Last, I love, love, love that Swarbrick has come out in favor of satellite camps. Hey, ACC... how do you feel about having the Irish in your conference now? Not feeling the love... well, get used to it. This will be one of many dick moves that you'll have to endure from that school in South Bend.
Someone help me out please. I see the youtube link to that NY sword-maker in the "THOSE WMDs" section. But DJ also did another reference to a sword-maker in a recent Skull Session. I can't find it for the life of me. It was a link to the guy's home page.
This is really bugging me. Anyone know where it is? Thanks.
I agree 100%. Mauti wasn't the world-beater that those jackholes thought he was.
Plus, I think Fragel's blocking was legit in real-time. You have to slow that play down by a factor of 5 to make it look like a hold. IOW, if it was holding it happened so quick that a ref couldn't have caught it.
That's one of the many reasons for my dislike of Nit fans. For them to not cry officiating, every call would have to go in their favor. Reasonable football fans have no expectation of that ever happening. (In hindsight, Notre Dame fans expect that as well.)
Meanwhile, don't ever bring up that play around a Nit. They fervently believe that Michael Mauti (LB 42) was being held by Reid Fragel (OT 77). And that's the only reason Miller wasn't caught in the backfield.
They just file it as another example of how Big Ten refs are out to screw Penn State. (See psychosis.)
A lot of those kicks while the opponent is on ground would get you disqualified in the US Doak.
My guess is that Dana White is trying to make that happen and he can't get any state boxing commissions to get on board.
Scottie is right on the money.
In a no-holds-barred fight, the Jiu-Jitsu (which is basically Judo without forms) would almost always end in a fracture if you're fighting against someone as skilled as Rousey. And at that Bantamweight class (125lbs to 135lbs), there is no better practitioner than Rousey -- male or female.
I really believe Dana White should start letting Rousey compete against men if she so desires. She most likely would rule the men's Bantamweight class. Possibly the Featherweight class (135lbs to 145lbs) as well. Hell, she'd probably make a dent in the Lightweight class (145lbs to 155lbs) if she chose to fight up that far. She's that good.
Okay, I'm going to nominate a show that just started last night. Fox has a track record of putting shows on the air that are cool and funny and then gives them no support once they are floundering. Last night they aired the funniest show I've seen since Community went off the air -- "Last Man on Earth". It's on Sunday nights. Set your DVR's now cause this show is too good to last very long. I lol'ed many many times while watching.
I probably should just move on. But I can't help it.
Anyone else notice that charity in the Penn State mindset doesn't extend beyond the borders of State College? Seems kind of self-serving to me.
UV for you then.
George O'Leary resume fallout. Is that what you're thinking brb?
The truth is that the zealots have never been in hiding. Based on the outcry the moment they removed the statue, I knew at some point it was going to be restored or replaced.
The only thing we can do to check the cult is to make sure they know we haven't forgotten about their black stain. Otherwise they are going to operate on the false assumption that their whitewashing was a success.
I was thinking Buckeye fans should wear a black armband when we play them. Am open to suggestions though.
I have a request for my fellow 11W'ers. Can we refrain from using the term "JoePa" to refer to Paterno? That nickname is a term of affection of which I have none. I assume we're all on the same page in that regard.
Paterno would be joining Spanier, Curley, and Schultz in the charges of perjury, conspiracy and child endangerment were he still alive today. And although they may never be convicted in a Pennsylvanian courtroom, outside of PA all four have been deemed guilty by the court of public opinion. Their actions don't pass the smell test.
UV for all the Noodle Henge commentors.
If we don't have any significant injuries, Meyer will drink Harbaugh's milkshake in 2015 and they could play the game at the gates of perdition for all I care.
Honestly, the Big House doesn't intimidate opposing teams as much as Happy Valley. Wolverines jiggling car keys isn't going to give them a home field advantage. Besides the Spartans are going to beat the uppity of them many weeks before we get the chance (also at the Big House).
One more thing about that "tangled web" tweet. Seems like a pretty innocent slam at a rival, doesn't it?
But think about it for a second... who do you think Harbaugh intended that tweet for? It's not Meyer, the Ohio State football staff, Buckeye fans, or even Wolverine fans. That was a message to the 2016-? recruits that both Ohio State and Michigan are working on. The message -- Meyer and his staff are not trustworthy.
This wasn't lost on Meyer and company. That's why Pantoni responded with his own tweet right away.
The NCAA rules aren't set up to deal with social media. So while what he did before wasn't technically violations of recruiting rules, many PAC coaches argued his tweets violated the intended spirit of the rules.
Harbaugh very often would tweet stuff during dead periods that pretty much everyone knew was directed at specific recruits. But he would do it without including the subject's twitter address. And they would get the message because they were following him.
Kind of like his "tangled web" tweet was a jab at Meyer without specifically mentioning Meyer.
Anyways, we better get used to this bs as that was how he rolled at Stanford.
