I like it.. Not terrifyingly original, but also not boring like most B1G advertisements. I wish they would have added The Wall in to separate Minnesota and Wisconsin, I feel like those states are pretty much inhabited by wildlings anyway.

Side note: Having read the books, I'm a bit nervous they won't be able to incorporate all the craziness of the last 2 books into the remaining seasons. We're over the lull, s*#t gets downright crazy from here.

I was going to post a very similar statement. I feel like JT is a more natural quarterback, Braxton is more of a tailback with a cannon. It's way too early, but I loved seeing JT go through his progressions, and I was impressed with his ball placement (mostly). I'm really excited to see the offense this year, I think we're going to see a much more balanced unit.

What's really aggravating is pollsters will not see it as the Cocks being bad, they'll see it as TAMU being that great. New rankings will be around:

TAMU #10

Cocks#14

If any B1G team, even us, got blown out by a 21st ranked team, they would drop out of the polls altogether. Hence the SEC having 10 teams in the top 20 at the end of the year. Ugh.

1. The Sopranos

2. Game of Thrones

3. Breaking Bad

4. Deadwood (waaaay too short)

5. Ray Donovan

6 Boardwalk Empire

7. Walking Dead

I can keep going, I've honestly never seen an episode of "The Wire". Where would you rank it against my theoretical favorites list?

Check with one of your local HVAC parts suppliers and see if they have a roll of magnetic bin labels. It's basically a giant roll of paper with magnetic backing. Grab a set of permanent markers and scissors, then go wild. I used to make one almost every day for one of my co-workers, we were constantly playing pranks on each other. 

For reference, one of my co workers drove for 6 days with an 18" sticker on his tailgate that read "I <3 Cankles".

You can imagine how raunchy some of those bumper stickers got, we finally had to call a truce.

Some of my favorites from college days:

-blast an air horn in his ear any time he doesn't see you coming.

- bake chocolate chewable laxatives into brownies- tell him your wife made you guys treats.

-remove all screws from his desk chair so it falls off the base when he sits down

Other ideas:

-glue all his tools or tool carrier to the floor of his work van or jobsite. (JB Weld is amazing)

- remove all the lug nuts off one of his wheels, hide them, tell him right before it's time to punch out

- discreetly place an embarrassing bumper sticker in his personal vehicle, or maybe hang some truck nuts from his personal vehicle (some guys actually like that though)

- I took a few pictures of a co-workers car, posted a realistic but "great price" ad on Craigslist, then watched as he fielded 10+ calls in an hour from people wanting to see his car. 

I'll stop for now, have some more ideas that may or may not be OK for work.

Comment 24 Aug 2014

I was going to type just about exactly this. Really hoping for no turnovers, but that may be a lot to ask of a RS Fr with no game experience whatsoever. Let's hope the lines and other skill players step up so JT can learn at his own pace and avoid a "trial by fire" situation.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Exactly, perhaps Roby could have stuck with Sammy Watkins, but he was smart enough to know he had a lot more to lose than he had to gain by playing. I know he was injured, but even at 100% it would have been a tough match-up for him. Watkins is/was a rare player, nit sure we could have stopped him even if we had all of our starters playing.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Another member in a couple other forums is pushing for ".50 Cal" due to his last name being Barrett.  I like it, especially if he starts slinging passes and gives some truth to the nickname.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

With the size of Buckeye Nation, we have a comparatively large "crazy" section. I hope you don't have your address listed anywhere online where myself  the crazies can find you...

Comment 19 Aug 2014

People posting in this thread seem fairly level-headed, but I've read some pretty outlandish statements (both overly optimistic and overly pessimistic) elsewhere on the site. My .02, I don't see us contending for a National Championship, but I do see us in the hunt for a B1G Championship, and a decent bowl game (if they still exist). I think the fate of the season won't lie in JT's hands, but in our offensive line. If they can come together and provide a solid front, then JT will have time to throw, and our stable of RB's should get the lanes they need to run. We have enough playmakers available, all we the O-line to do is give JT enough time to get them the ball. 

If he's running for his life alot (ala Braxton in 2011), we may be in for a long season.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

I can assure you (sadly), that once a shoulder is dislocated, nothing short of surgery will get it back to anywhere close to 100%. I've had three surgeries total, both shoulders involved, and after each dislocation the joint is so loose that pretty much anything can knock it out, even rolling over in the night wrong.

On the medical redshirt, I've been thinking since this morning it would be better for him in the long run to get surgery, them try to get picked up in a late round by an NFL team. As many above have mentioned, the likelihood of his shoulder ever being 100% again is slim, and I think any future shoulder injuries sustained in college will all but kill his NFL aspirations. 

Comment 10 Aug 2014

I disagree on a couple levels. First, you never want to "test" anything in a game, if you can't do it over and over in practice, then it shouldn't be done in a game. Second, any quarterback not named Manning or Brady can improve on something, and Braxton could certainly improve on his "touch", and also his ability to read a defence and find an open receiver.  

Is he the best QB in the B1G, absolutely. Nonetheless, I would still be much happier if he was able to take game-ready snaps right now.

Comment 10 Aug 2014

I hear you, I've had both shoulders scoped, and the left one they had to go back in and open it up to repair the damage. You're probably right, but  in my experience, I was pretty much ready to go 6 months out from surgery. I would have figured with the quality of care and rehab he's had, he would be ready to rock and roll. 

Guess that's why I'm not in charge!

Comment 10 Aug 2014

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about Braxton's shoulder. Its looking more and more like the coach's aren't being cautious, they're legit concerned. It also makes me wonder what kind of shape he'll be in when the season starts, and how much rust he's going to have to shake off. He missed valuable snaps in the spring, now he's missing even more valuable snaps in fall camp.

On a lighter note, I'm glad to see Dontre, Jalin, and Samual are all standing out to Coach Meyer. There is a whole lot of shake and bake in that group.

Comment 09 Aug 2014

I think I remember someone with some football IQ mentioning that Nick is farther along in his development at his age than Joey was. Considering that JB came into the B1G last year and was one of the best DE's in the league as a true freshman, I'd say Nick has a very bright future ahead of him. Here's to hoping he picks the good guys!

Comment 09 Aug 2014

I can sort of see what you're saying, but what exactly was the alternative to the Love deal? Was he supposed to say, "No, I would rather not have a top 25 player on my team b/c it's supposed to be super hard to win an NBA Championship"? Love wanted to play with Lebron, anyone standing in the way of that deal should have lost their job. You simply don't turn a player of that caliber down unless there is a moral or team chemistry issue.

I'm a Pistons fan, but as a native Ohioan, I still get a tinge of pride that Lebron came back to rep the state I'm proud to have grown up in, and he did it with a very bold statement. I just wish we could all embrace him as a great ambassador for our state, a person that truly cares about his community, and most of all, one of our most influential and notable Buckeye fans.

Comment 08 Aug 2014

I really hope our stable of running backs can step up and provide a solid running game so Braxton doesn't have to. I realize he is probably our best runner, but I'd like to see just a couple designed runs each game to keep the defense's honest. Let the true RB's take the brunt of the hits, and let Braxton distribute the ball to all of our other weapons. Most of all, keep him upright and healthy.  

Comment 07 Aug 2014

Thanks for posting... NFL exhibition games are normally so far off my radar I would've never noticed it was on. El Guapo had a knack for making plays when he really needed too, the only player in recent memory I can think of like that was TP. When either of them had to get a 3rd or 4th down conversion, you just knew they would make it happen. Why do they leave us soo early?!!?

Comment 06 Aug 2014

At some point in the first couple games, as the stable of backs is rotated trying to find one who separates himself, I want Rod Smith to come in and put the ball on the ground. He'll walk back to the bench, head low, realizing he'll probably never get a chance to carry the ball again in his career. Then I want Meyer to walk over, give him a pep-talk and a pat on the helmet, and send him right back out there for the next series. That's when I want it all to click for Rod Smith. I want him to rush for a 1000+ this season, and I want him score 15+ TD's. 

I'm a sucker for inspirational sports moments, whether in real life or the movies. He's battled the hype we placed on him, the coaching changes he had no part of, his own mistakes on the field, and the eventual "bust" title that's been hung on him. I really really want it to come together for him this year, few on the team deserve it more.
