Thoughts and prayers going out to that young man and his family. Hate hearing about this kind of thing happening to a young man with his whole life ahead of him.
Nothing... That's why I said "At least mine would be," indicating that I would wear similar articles of clothing should I be a post-secondary instructor.
An article that mentions Brady Hoke and deep-fried twinkies, but yet (somehow) the two aren't connected.
I'm gonna go lie down for a while.
He's a prof... His closet is probably full of tweed jackets, graphic tees, corduroy pants, and slip-on Vans.
At least mine would be.
I think as long as our front 7 keeps the pressure up, he'll be forced into throwing some bad balls. If we can capitalize on a few of those ducks, then I can't foresee our D struggling with containing this offense. It seems to me that this is what the flow of the game boils down to.
On the other hand... If Kiel has all day to throw, we could be up shit creek. But I'm not betting on that.
This is the most awkward boner I've ever had.
Who does he think he is, Lebron?
Thatta boy, Craft. Everyone here knew he could do it... Keep hustlin' and you'll do just fine in life.
If I cared any less about the rankings this early in the season, they'd be Michigan.
Not the exact news I was looking to hear today, but certainly a positive.
Love this. If we really believe that OSU belongs with the big boys (and I'm of that mind), these are the games we need to play. Definitely good news.
A bit optimistic, but I like it.
Why is no mentioning the possibility of a QB controversy? If Barrett turns out to be a stud and OSU wins 10-11 games... Do you automatically hand the team over next season to a guy who hasn't actively played in 19-20 months (at that point)?
I love Braxton and want to see him do well, but if Barrett shows he can be the guy, you can't axe him. Possibly use Braxton all over the field, including some under center looks. Would be great to have two nasty athletes that can play QB.
It's JT time now. No looking back or what could've been. We've got a guy under center that's been taking first team reps all year long. Time to step it up.
Best wishes to Braxton. Get well, man. And if not, cash in on that insurance policy.
At the end of the day, JT is the guy we'd all be talking up this offseason as Brax's replacement. The hell with waiting, let's start hyping JT up now. Meyer, Herman, et al say he's a leader. They say his accuracy is spot on. His tapes show that he can be mobile. He's got "it," so they say. I'll trust what the coaches have to say and what his youtube tapes show he can do.
Fuck it. If JT is gonna be our guy, I'm on board.
Tough situation for Braxton. At this point, it appears that his entire career is in jeopardy... What a shame.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
I'm really beginning to hate the month of August. What a kick in the nuts.
I really hope the Browns do something foolish and start Manziel week 1 at Pittsburgh. I've been wanting to see RDS get his hands on Manziel for a looooong time.
This dude should be going to prison. That's felonious assault, at bare minimum.
And of course he had to sucker punch the guy... No one associated with Michigan football has fairly beaten an equal opponent at anything in decades. What a soft bitch.
This whole situation has been a total clusterfuck, for lack of a better word. It smelled foul from the beginning and has only gotten exponentially worse.
Regardless of Drake's intentions or motives... This has been a magnificent swing and miss.
If anyone neglected to read the article on Afroman, and the proceeding comments, I'll leave you with the winner of internet comment of the day:
"Dude did a show at a frat party at LSU like 2 years ago and lived outside the house in his van for the next week only went into the house to shower and do coke"
I tend to agree with both Meyer and Spielman, or at least with parts of their stance. One need only look to the last two games of last year to see that our LB's got exposed on several plays, certainly not in the "romanticized" way we view guys like Hawk, Laurinaitis, etc. We tend to look at the past with a much rosier lens than very recent events. Those guys weren't perfect either, but revisionist history is what it is. I'm certainly optimistic with this group... As I am with nearly every LB core the Buckeyes put on the field.
Watched him play a few weeks ago... He looked slick. He's definitely got the god-given talent to play on Sunday. If he can develop and polish his mental game in the AFL, then who knows what he could be capable of.
Best of luck, kid. Hope the knee gets better.
