This is a Happy Dey!
My long national nightmare is over.
(Why do you have to do that here and literally - nowhere else? :-)
The OP is a poster at Scout.
Even more hated than the scUM posters.
In fairness...most think he is "not all there" and offer him some slack.
Just a warning...
Edwardsville/Belleville is across the river from St. Louis - east of East St. Louis.
My family is from there. Good area for hoops.
The #666 rated prospect?
Hurry....someone give him another star.
Mother Of All Booms..
Aldon Smith sounds like John Malkovich...
I was the one who wrote the OSU Athletic Department many moons ago encouraging them to consider honoring Knight and retiring his jersey for two reasons: 1.) He was a member of OSU's only NCAA Championship team and 2.) At the time he was the winningest coach in NCAA history.
Also - knowing that Indiana wasn't going to do right by him...it would be a good way to shove it up Indiana's ass.
Love it that Knight holds OSU in such high esteem and vice versa.
Matta is Woody/Tressel/Meyer rolled into one. (As far as OSU BB coaching is concerned)
If Russel hangs around a second year or Kennard stays home - we're not having this conversation.
It has always been this way.
When Ohio produces talent and it goes to OSU - OSU is Sweet 16 materials.
When Ohio doesn't produce, or, that talent heads OOS...OSU suffers.
That was true of Fred Taylor and everyone in between to Matta.
No one in the BIG 10 is killing it in recruiting these days.
It is what it is.
Love Wesson coming in next year and the three Ohio guys coming in the year after.
Matta will get his second wind.
If this guy got 13 years, Matta deserves Immortality.
Standard tuition for one year of boarding at IMG Academy is $68,500 plus.
That's more than most good, even great, colleges.
Donnie is a friend of three friends of mine: Rob Parissi of Wild Cherry; Rick Witkowski of
Crack the Sky and the B.E. Taylor Group, and the late, great, B.E. Taylor.
Donnie, like a lot of artists, got entangled in litigation hell with his record company.
His record company would not allow him to record or release new music for the last half of the 1980s killing his momentum.
His keyboard player, Mark Avsec https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Avsec who co-wrote "Ah! Leah" became a copyright lawyer due to being sued for the song. He won the case but lost all his earnings defending himself.
Donnie and B.E. Taylor recorded a couple of Christmas songs for WDVE radio in the late 80s which are two of the strongest
Christmas covers you'll ever hear.
Here is "God Rest Rest Ye Gentlemen"
And "Silent Night"
I'm a big Matta fan.
Glad he got a big win tonight.
When the team plays with passion...they do well.
Just why they don't all the time...is...indeed....puzzling.
Go Bucks. Win a few more.
OSU hadn't shown Martell any love and when they did, he was in.
The Gorman LB has been heavily recruited by Meyer for over a year already.
Kieth Byars was a 5 star/Blue Chip.
Tim Spencer was a 5 star/Blue Chip.
Robert Smith was a 5 star/Blue Chip.
Maurice Clarett was a 5 star/Blue Chip.
Beanie Wells was a 5 star/Blue Chip.
Heck...even Brionte Dunn was a 5 star/Blue Chip.
Ohio RBs are not downgraded because they are from "here", instead of, "there".
Another good one chose Eastern Kentucky.
Alonzo Booth as the #2 FB in the nation.
Surprised he didn't land somewhere in the BIG 10.
