I don't know where I implied I support violence against women. I don't support violence against anyone, that was the point of my post. Just because someone is smaller and less physically capable DOES NOT give them the right to use physical violence. It is ALWAYS unacceptable. It's not cute or adorable to see a woman hitting her husband just like it's not cute or adorable to see a man hitting his wife. Both are disgusting.

We should be teaching kids (both boys and girls) to not hit anyone. If my wife ever took a swing at me she wouldn't be my wife for much longer. That's a serious character defect to use physical violence against another person out of anger.

He didn't really elucidate what he is upset about? Is he saying he didn't receive proper medical care for his injuries? If so, that's pretty sad.

However, if he quit the team, I'm not quite sure why he expected to be invited to the banquet. College football is big business, players have to realize that if they aren't future NFL players, they really are just fungible commodities to these universities.

Well, Simmons used to be a legitimate content producer for them. He would write several articles per week, covering all of the major sports as well as pop culture back when he was on "Page 2" on espn.com. He was essentially a mini-Grantland for them. His shtick was novel at that point and filled a gap between traditional sportswriting and pop culture writing.

As the years went on, he pretty much abandoned any interest he had in writing and worked solely toward getting on TV/Podcasts, where he was significantly less compelling and relevant than he was at the height of his powers as a writer. The articles he writes now are super-phoned in and show the same over-reliance on references he was using 10 years ago. I have no idea how instrumental he was behind the scenes as a leader with 30 for 30 and Grantland, but he isn't worth the salary and the headaches for what he provides as a TV personality, which is what he seems to want to be at this point.

Was a long time coming. Simmons hasn't been relevant as a sports pop culture/writer for years- he seems way more focused on being a TV personality. That being said, I do enjoy Grantland a lot and hope ESPN continues to support it. ESPN seems to support people who are good soldiers for the brand, and Simmons was constantly causing problems for them.

It's actually surprising OSU doesn't offer that major given the amount of E&P taking place in Southeast Ohio in the Utica Shale. That being said, I hope he is really set on this as a career path. Being 16 and thinking you know what you want to major in/do for the rest of your life isn't a sure thing. Would suck if he went to PSU/WVU solely for a program they offer only to change his major once he gets there.

Honestly, he should be thinking Texas/OK if he really wants that career path anyways.

I'm sorry, but why did people think this was going to be an exciting fight? Have any of you guys who are upset ever seen a Mayweather fight? This was textbook Mayweather. That's what he does- it's what he's always done. He puts on a defensive masterclass and throws his jab just enough to stay active. Eventually he ends up controlling the fight. He isn't a brawler, isn't a knockout artist. It's on his opponent to bring the action. Pacquiao landed maybe 3-5 punches with any venom the entire fight. He couldn't beat Mayweather's defenses.

Floyd's a shitty person but he is an absolutely flawless defensive boxer. That's why he's undefeated. That's why his fights are boring. If you're upset at anyone be upset at yourself for believing that just because this fight was hyped to the max that Floyd would for some reason turn into a brawler.

Hard to get anything going on offense when you are sitting on the sidelines for 9 minutes while Arm Punt Jr. leads that garbage UM offense on a 95 yard drive.

What the hell is Jim Heacock doing these days.

I've been critical of him just based on the lack of "pop" his kicks seem to have. You watch Agauyo or any really excellent kicker, the ball just explodes off their foot. They are no doubters. Nuernberger hasn't shown that physical ability yet, which is what concerns me. The ball gets there, but not with authority. His kicks, including XP's, have a rather low trajectory. It's like he has to really punch it out there to get the force necessary to carry the ball, which might affect his accuracy some.

Obviously with more experience and confidence his misses will decrease. I guess I'm just more concerned with his physical ceiling.

I think it's fair to analyze players and provide criticism so long as it's not spiteful and petty.

Comment 09 Nov 2014

Anyone else concerned with Nuernberger? Just doesn't seem have to have that pop on his kicks that you seen from really elite kickers. 

I hate to be a downer after that high we just experienced but that's one of my takeaways from the game going forward.

They are more into self-promotion than supporting the Buckeyes. That's what gets people upset and makes them look bad. There's a reason they wear the same customized clothing with their stupid nicknames on them, it's just wanton self-promotion. It's annoying that they get their morbidly obese faces on camera every week at the expense of fans who don't make us look like raging douches.

The Evans Scholarship requires you working 5-6 years as a caddy and requires you to show financial need. A kid with a rich dad who loves to write checks isn't carrying golf bags for 4.5 hours a day every summer weekend in 90 degree heat for 5 years. I would know.

I am 100% certain he doesn't have a "daddy" with a "checkbook" to cash his way out of the situation.

The saying about representing yourself means you have a fool for a client applies here. You do no show up to court without legal representation. You will ALWAYS get a better deal with representation. The judge is a former lawyer. You not showing up with a lawyer makes it look like you don't take the situation seriously which is 100% not the impression that you want to be giving, especially in a situation like Wunder's.
