Did coach Jent make the trip?
So deserved. Hard work, no excuses, commitment extraordinaire. CAVS!!!
C'mon, follow your King into battle!
I always felt good reading your posts, Birm, because I knew you came by the information the right way--by treating the young men and their families with class, integrity and respect. In this way, you embodied our love for the university with every interaction. Thank you and good luck!
I think he plays well, 16 pts, 9 rebounds tonite.
Would like to see other Buckeye teams adopt this program if they haven't already.
I've been fine with his past tweets but this one crossed the line with calling out 'average players'. Public venue, lead by example coach.
Will be rooting for you, kid. Go be the next Tony Dorsett.
Go big and pound on them in the first half. I want to see Curry and Thompson's legs looked tired in the 2nd half just like last night. Love and JR will probably play shoot lights out at home so that might take a little pressure of Bron and Kyrie.
Most impressed by his footwork and the focus he is putting into his craft. Can't wait to see this kid play.
Hope Mozgov shows him what a cheap shot really looks like.
I sleep better at night knowing that somewhere there's a young man in a gym working until the wee hours to become the hero this city needs.
Briles is considering starring in a new TV series, Friday Night Blights
Found this primer on the OU offensive line. They return 3 starters (center and 2 highly-rated tackles). The guys coming in at guard average about 295. Going to be a battle.
Will she light it in vigil for Cam and Hootie?
Where is Beth Mowins in all of this?
That kid oozes all the qualities of character that you could ever want to see in a person. I bet he is a great teammate and I can't wait to see him represent The Ohio State Buckeyes.
Time to brake out the all-QB diamond formation.
It bother me to hear that a first round pick runs questionable routes and is a bit of a project. Big 12 in a nutshell. I would have much preferred Dotson or even Will Fuller. I think they go defense with their 2nd pick but would love to have Mike Thomas.
There seems to be consensus on what needs to happen. But how does it happen? What does the off-season look like for these guys? I'd genuinely like to know.
I assume they are given a list of areas to develop in. And I also hear a lot of Thad's former players come back during the summers and workout together. If that's the case it would be great if these older guys could challenge and mentor these young guys, and not just show up to a gym and play some games together.
On another note, does Scoonie Penn have any interest in joining the staff? We need a different type of fire and intangible leadership within the staff and I think he'd bring it.
Even though I picked them to win it all, I really hate looking at that picture of Sparty on my favorite site.
Great win. Hope KBD feels better soon and we kick UF in the gator bits.
Glad he's speaking up. I'd heard a similar story from a reporter with good access to the program and it's a damn shame that class didn't have any real leaders.
Let it be a lesson to our current players: You want to be great, put in great effort.
Average golfers will save the most strokes by practicing chip shots. I do this around my yard. Set up a small target, like a bucket, at 10 to 20 yards. It's the best way to develop feel.
The key is you've got to practice good technique. So definitely video yourself. Is your body moving? Is your head stationary? Are you breaking your wrists or jabbing at the ball?
Review it with someone that knows how to play (like a good teaching pro). Once you have a good feel for the basic chip, then move to uphill and downhill lies and learn to adjust to the situation. If you're confident in your short game, you will make better swings from 100 yards out because you will know that you can recover.
