Idk, it looks like the defender might just tackle #59 in one more step..
no...he said it's okay to smoke.. but stop at 19 per day...any more than that is bad for your health...
Damn, He's huge! I mean, his picture is huge!
Don't know what kind of reviews it gets in Columbus but I had a great meal and good time at the Three Legged Mare in the arena district when I was in Columbus for a convention.
Izzo is my all-time favorite non-Buckeye coach. He never takes himself too seriously and always gets the most out of his players.
Here are his highlights from last year's game against Bellevue.
" If one of those players is on the field for me, and I have no timeouts, I have no way to stop the game. And he raises his hand to stop the game, and I can't do it. What am I supposed to do? What are we supposed to do when we have a player who tells us he's injured?”-- Bret (Bert) Bielema
Since this happened against YOUR TEAM... You might want to try it...
Glad to see you post this. I thought I was going to have to go all Waycraken to get Breck some attention on this board.
My 2 cents, at the end of the day...It is what it is.
Who's the white boy?
I was a late comer to 11w. I had been a part of Bucknuts for several years both free and paid for a couple years. I only came to 11w when there was a link from their site. I thought 11w was hard to navigate because I had gotten seed to theirs. The changes made here are a great improvement. I like the stories at the top of the front page and find it really easy to view and add comments when I click the forum tab. 1 thing I did like about the old site was that new comments were much easier to find. Otherwise, its still my favorite hangout.
I think the fact that the coaches didn't burn his red shirt at the end of the season is vey telling. I believe they were looking for him to be a major contributor the next 4 seasons and didn't want to use that extra year of eligibility until Urban had "his team" in place. Urban and staff worked a miracle by going 24-0 with players that weren't recruited to fit his system. I think he knew all along that the team he had on the field could compete with anyone in the country but still wasn't championship caliber. He was saving his horses for the long run with players he recruited to compete for and win championships. Aside from that, Mtchell was known to be a raw talent with great measurable athleticism. He was and is a work in progress. I would have loved to see him on the field for the good guys but he made his decision based on his priorities. I wish him the best.
Here is a good explanation of what a greyshirt is. I don't think we'll use a greyshirt for any of our players. The numbers will take care of themselves. We are currently over the 82 by 1 or 2 players. If that means a kid who has been on scholarship 4 years is let go before his eligibility is exhausted, so be it. My guess is that we will have a transfer or 2 and maybe even a legit medical exemption. Tressel always had unused scholarships to award walk-ons after signing day. Urban doesn't have that luxury (because of scholarship restrictions brought on by Tressel).
Putin on a Ritz
I'm not gonna go all Waycraken on you "yet" and start a Breck Turner thread but I think the coaches should be in contact with him. He is a workhorse with good speed, elusiveness and a whole lot of YAC. Oh, and a great kid. Last season he had 185 carries for 1910 yards and 33 TD's. He also caught 5 passes for 202 yards and 4 TD. He should be a little over 6' and 200lbs by next season. He isn't ranked by any of the services yet but will be doing some camping over the summer. Penn State made a lot of contact last year but I doubt Franklin and his staff have talked to him yet. He's a lot of fun to watch and I think he will do well in D1, but I am biased since he's a Norwalk kid. Watch his highlights and let me know what you think.

What time can the LOIs officially be faxed?
Alabama doesn't promise 4-year let alone 5-year scholarships. The $EC has been oversigning for years; they have actually been doing less of it over the past few years than in the past. It's not a problem for the network that owns them. I was surprised to look at their past few class sizes. They have signed 74 kids over the past 3 years compared to our 71. Take into account our scholarship reductions and we have signed the same number of recruits.
Just wondering? When was the last time you had to knock on your own door to get in the house?
I expect Brax will not allow himself to be used as a run 1st QB next year. He expected to be a 3 year guy when he came here and I believe he has to be disappointed at his likely draft position if he had chosen to come out early. I'm glad he had the sense to stay another year to work on his passing game but I don't think we'll see him used the same way next year, especuially with all the other high speed, play making,weapons he will have around him.
They're suing the B1G, not the NCAA. BTW, It was Fickell who designed and called the "someone spiked the punchbowl" defense. I don't think it will work.
edit:misread comment, sorry
and I don't think any of the member schools want "fans" recruiting for them....now posing as a scUM fan and trolling their recruits might be acceptable
That is why they have the "continue reading" button
I don't remember TP ever getting hit as a college quarterback. He dished out a lot of punishment with his stiff arm and almost always found the sideline before a defender could unload on him. Brax takes too much punishment. Rather than find the sideline or slide after a long gain, he takes the hits to get the extra 2-3 yards. I almost more concerned that he is going to injure himself than I am about being injured by a defender. He's going to break his neck one of these times if he keeps diving into the end zone to score.
