That graph is amazing!

I tried reading through the transcript of Hoke's presser from yesterday on MGoBlo - I finally gave up about halfway through his opening remarks. Totally incoherent with a double dose of coach-speak throughout. SMDH!

Comment 29 Sep 2014

Allow me to play devil's advocate here. If I were an up-and-coming assistant with HC aspirations, I would think long and hard before accepting a job at a basketball powerhouse. As far as football goes, UNC, up and down at best; Duke, the same; UK, meh (maybe Stoops can turn that around); IU, yuck! About the only university (I can think of) that is a traditional basketball power and relevant-to-very-good in football is Louisville.

Comment 29 Sep 2014

That's actually pretty ingenious with the use of the shopping cart! I don't think it's Jabba, though, FitzBuck; this is actually Anthony Wunder putting his (almost) MechEng degree to good use in the future!

Comment 29 Sep 2014

Yeah, AZBuckeye, that collage of Brady's efforts to piece together a coherent sentence never gets old. As much fun as we made of his physique, his rhetorical "skills" are even greater fodder for a little fun.

I "Wunder" if the young on-field intruder will be able to finish his matriculation through tOSU. What will the University ban-hammer look like? And, if Coach Schlegel is sued, I believe we should all pitch in some $$ for his defense fund.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

MMan, I believe it was Ace on your own MGoBlog that DJ referenced. Now, Ace inserted something of a qualifier when he said:

"...an almost certainly concussed..."

It doesn't seem that DJ is any further "out on a limb" than Ace and a great deal of the commentariat on MGo, based on what has been posted there today. The whole Morris issue, however, is simply evidence of a much larger problem - Brady Hoke has lost control of the football program.  

Comment 28 Sep 2014

First off, good to see you back, BamaMike - you are one of the few rational 'Bama fans I've encountered. Great analysis, too. And you're right, the whole conference-dominance thing is a cyclical phenomenon.

Comment 27 Sep 2014

Was trolling perusing MGoBlo (the schadenfreude has become like heroin the last 2 years) - scUM fans are reporting a complete meltdown in the locker room. Offense bickering internally; defense and offense not speaking to each other. It's much worse than even Rich Rod's epic fail. 

Comment 27 Sep 2014

...just want to keep the discussion from veering offtrack.

How could that possibly happen, Hove? We're talking about Penn State!

Comment 27 Sep 2014

I love the Queen City; my wife is a UC alum (and will be rooting for the Buckeyes tonight - she is also brilliant as well as beautiful!); I'm a Red's fan... There have been some in the commentariat that have roasted Cinci, I think it may be due to history - many top HS players from there have chosen to matriculate elsewhere. That seems to be changing some. And I don't recall DJ having done flamed the city in any article. Methinks Colerainbuck is a tad too sensitive.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

It's also pretty crazy the game against Cincinnati was, like, the fourth (~) biggest nail-biter that championship team played.

Yeah, that 2002 season is probably the reason I have high blood pressure, receding hair line, tooth decay, no cartilage in the left knee and unusually loud flatulence!

Comment 24 Sep 2014

I've been counseling a young man (early 20s) with an addiction to heroin. He steals to support his habit, ends up in jail (so it's difficult to get a job when he's released), does well for a while, gets high, steals to support his habit... This kid doesn't need imprisonment, he needs treatment (which is very expensive). The way this nation deals with drug addicts/offenders is medieval at best (and I'm not a bleeding heart by any stretch of the imagination).

Comment 24 Sep 2014

I can relate. I had a similar wake-up call from my wife 15 years ago: "I don't even know who you are anymore!"

Talk about a hard punch to the gut - but it was needed and life is more in balance now. It takes an incredibly strong relationship with a loved one to be able to voice those concerns. Thank God for that "little girl" saying it like it was (and thank God for my other half letting me know how far off the rails I had gone)!

Comment 24 Sep 2014

I want him broken living underneath a bridge somewhere...

That was worth the price of admission, Citrus!

Comment 24 Sep 2014

I saw that too, ALLINOSU. If so, and if it's true that scUM didn't provide medical care for a football-related injury, I have to agree with DJ that it's close to criminal negligence.

Things just keep getting betterer and betterer for "That Team"...

Comment 23 Sep 2014

Very interesting, Toad. If I were an alum or fan of scUM (shudders involuntarily at the thought of either), and found out it's true that Brandon wouldn't even return Les Miles' phone calls because he was locked-in on Jabba the Hoke, I would be getting the villagers together and buying every last pitchfork from the AA Home Depot!

Comment 23 Sep 2014

Allow me to preface this by saying I am always nervous when the Buckeyes play a team like UC. Their whole season would be a success if they were to beat tOSU in the Shoe, and we know we'll get their best shot. Having said that, however, after watching them against Miami (OH) and UT, it's pretty clear that UC's defense is atrocious! JT & Co. should be able to score a lot of points, even if Gunnar is able to have success against the Bullets (and, for some reason, I  just don't believe he will - probably due to a lot of pressure from Washington, Bosa, Bennett, et.al.).

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Actually, there aren't too many more enjoyable ways to spend a bye week Sunday than reading the lamentations of the skunk weasel commentariat as they witness the implosion of their once vaunted program.                                                                       Thanks for mining the gems out of that latrine, Remy  

Comment 21 Sep 2014

The scUM blogs are serendipitous! One commenter actually said what many of us have been telling Skunk Weasel fans for several years - their best years are all past; the present is bleak; the future even more so; they can hang their hats on the biggest stadium & most wins ...

Schadenfreude ain't just the tree Sigmund sat under to get out of the sun!
