"You got that straight!"
Wow. That's all I can say. As a senior in HS in NW Ohio when Dru passed, I remember him clearly.
Great way to remember he young man. Well done.
I'm a Steeler fan, but this is a legit pick.
Hands down. Hell, I would've worn my jersey to both.
Camped out overnight in front of the shrine to the chicken wing when it opened to get free wings for a year. Never went back to redeem my winnings once. That, in a nutshell, sums up my life.
Damn... Not the news I wanted to wake up to. Rest easy, Will. What a tragedy.
Doing full-grown man stuff already. I like it.

He's special and not like other kids. Duh. Didn't his parents tell you that, too?
I wonder if he thinks the NFL scouts are going to pat him on the head and tell him he's super.
Seriously, kid, the world is a much meaner place than scary ol' Urban Meyer makes it look like. Good luck at your first job interview post-college. I'm sure everyone at your first place of employment will fawn over what a tremendous young man you've become and how special you are compared to everyone else.
This is the "everyone gets a trophy" generation facing adversity.
I'm a Matta defender as well... But now I'm starting to wonder what the hell is going on. And if Harris is next, then there's really a problem internally.
In all honestly, if you're a 5* kid, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't at least listen to what Urban and Saban have to say. If those two are interested in talking to you, it's probably wise to listen up for a few minutes.
The Stones concert at The Shoe was unreal. But then again, I heard the tea and khaki crowd at UM thinks this rock and/or roll fad will pass any day now.
You misspelled "savage."
That Blade article pretty much sums up who James Patrick Tressel really is: One hell of a human being.
Drushaun Humphrey... That's a name I haven't heard in a while. I remember when that happened... I was a senior in HS in NW Ohio. I remember watching his highlights on Big Board Friday. That kid was a stud and looked like he has bound for greatness. Such a shame to lose a life before it even had a chance to begin.
But they had Mac Beach...
You wait and see, Mr. Carothers...
Seriously? That was said in reference to the fact that he told the truth... Not giving an answer that is vague or misleading. I'm not polling for his Q rating during election season. It's his opinion, and he wasn't giving the PC answer. That's why I said he doesn't have a future in politics.
And mayor of Akron isn't even real politics. Think more Frank Underwood (national) and less Goldie "Progress" Wilson (local).
Well, at least we know he doesn't have a future career in politics. So, that's good.
The Browns suck, I get that... But no. Just no. Not now, not ever.
I certainly don't wish ill upon the man. For the most part, I think he's done a good job. But he's also had some misses... And for people saying "well, in hindsight," come on. Everyone knew we were probably going to get hit with some stiff penalties, so taking a 6-6 team to the Gator Bowl should've been an easy pass opportunity. Nearly every college football fan I knew assumed OSU was going to take a self-imposed bowl ban. Would that have guaranteed no bowl ban the next season, one that we knew Urban would be coaching? Of course not... But it would've made our odds a hell of a lot better. 6-6 team with Fickell at HC or roll the dice on UFM's first season? That's not even a logical question.
Point being, I don't believe Gene Smith thought the NCAA would slap a postseason ban on OSU. Call it optimism, ego, whatever... But he should've seen that coming because every B1G and SEC fan (I lived in Atlanta at the time) sure as hell did.
Wrong Notre Dame, but I certainly agree in principle.
Like how OSU could've potentially played ND for the 2012 BCS championship if Gene Smith had any foresight and willingly took on a bowl ban during the 2011 season? Yeah, I shudder to think what would happen without him.
Let's get to the real story: Does Luke Fickell know what it takes for me to get my greedy hands on one of those Silver Bullets shirts?
