If anyone that posts on this site contacts recruits, they should receive the Jason ban-hammer immediately, if not sooner! Leave recruits alone; it's incredibly creepy bordering on psychopathic!
6'6", 290 lbs, great footwork, only a HS sophomore?! Wait until Ed Warinner and Coach Marotti get their hands on him - our O-line is gonna have more pancakes than IHOP!
Couldn't agree more, Cajun. Urban is recruiting great athletes, of course; but they are even better human beings. The fact that Jamel wants to be pushed to be the best he can be speaks volumes about his character and work ethic.
I want to see pictures of this young man after a few months with Coach Marotti!
Seems Urban may be slipping, though - Jamel doesn't play QB!
Oyster, you are on fire today!
As for your dilemma, Droessl, do you have a Dick's Sporting Goods near you? They seem to have a good selection of sizes - at least here in the 419 (NW Ohio).
Spot on, Andy. It seems obvious that a bad AD can do an incredible amount of damage to an athletic department ("Paging Dave Brandon; paging Dave Brandon. Pick up the white courtesy phone along with your Coke and mushroom/pepperoni deep dish!"). As for a championship in 2012 ... well, I would never bet against UFM, but if he had pulled that off, his next act could have been walking on the Olentangy (in August)!
Too, too funny, Unky.
For what it's worth, I know Iron Mike has had his "issues" (to be kind) in the past; but my youngest son and I had the opportunity to speak with him in the Phoenix airport, circa 2000. He was incredibly gracious, posing with the boy, who was 12 at the time, for a couple of pictures. I shook his hand (huge hands!) and thanked him for his time (and tried not to laugh as he said, "You're welcome!" in that lispy, high-register voice of his; correctly figuring it wouldn't be good for the kid's psyche to see his dad pummeled into a grease spot in front of Southwest Airline's check-in counter!).
Be listening, Birm. Welcome to the 419!
Hindsight is 20/20, but it's sort of amusing to revisit the meltdown a few members of the commentariat had early-on this season. I think most of us believed we'd improve, but a natty this year???! I'm willing to be generous, but sometimes it's best to take a step back before posting overly wrought ad hominems against a proven developer of talent such as Warinner.
It took me a second to catch the sarc font - good thing, I almost went apoplectic when I saw Warinner and "decent coach" in the same sentence.
My oldest son dated Bill Nershi's step-daughter for a while when he lived in Boulder. Didn't know String Cheese Incident was known east of the Mississippi. A good jam band!
Ted Ginn, Sr. needs his own tree in Buckeye Grove.
That Sports Pickle article is hilarious.
Well played, dude; kudos!
And he can then obliterate the Orc army up north, as well as their leader, Sauron-baugh!
It's going to be very interesting in Spring and Fall camp.
A very mature decision by Cardale. I'm impressed.
I love that Warriner got the promotion - he may be the biggest reason we are celebrating our 8th national championship (yeah, I'm counting the split polls). The slobs on O and the "wild grizzlies" (hat tip to "Big Bear") on the D-line are where Natties are won.
I would be astounded if each position coach or coordinator wasn't tasked with mentoring/training his replacement - Urban is too good of a CEO to not make that part of the job description when he's hiring someone.
And Woody learned it from the Roman Legions, military historian that he was.
Hmmmm. So if Mrs. Oldschool & I get real busy in April, we might be able to see the "fruit of our labor" (or hers, to be more accurate) about the time we're ready to repeat...
"Honey, I need your help with a little project..."
(Actually, that ship sailed a while back... But it's always fun to try!)
So glad we didn't see his ugly mug during the telecast.
Seeing Jacob celebrating with the team, watching Carmen being sung - sent me over the edge. No shame, bro; no shame!
...five years and five more NCs ...
Love the way you think, AV!
Earle never fails to deliver.
Great story during pre-game last night on 610 WTBN about your namesake's destruction of the locker room during the 1986 Cotton Bowl win over A&M.
Told the wife that I believe we'll win, but even if we don't, I absolutely love this team!
Total effort by 11 warriors on every side of the ball and special teams. Urban and the coaches deserve massive praise for the greatest coaching job at any level in any sport in my memory.
Interesting analysis, GoBucksOSU. Thanks for digging a little. One big difference was the Goiters came into the game as a 5 1/2 point favorite. They still did the job on Oklahoma. I kind of like this underdog status lately. I doubt if this team is a dog in any game in 2015.
