Lol - yeah, Buck I, I actually wouldn't be surprised to see something like that.
So, they're going to bring in the Storm Troopers if someone, God forbid, stands too much cheering on their favorite team at a major college sporting event; and, they're going to put up a bunch of advertisements around the 'Shoe?! Why not just sell naming rights to it? How about "Nationwide Insurance field at Ohio Stadium" or something similarly clever and corporate?
Maybe they should just pump in crowd noise and let the teams play in front of empty seats (all with corporate-sponsor logos on them, of course!)?
This should send a shiver down every DC in the B1G. Once the O line gets its collective stuff together (and I have total confidence with Coach Warriner training the lads), the coaches should be able to open the playbook and let JT use all the toys at his disposal - I think this will be a really fun team to watch.
But now he's apparently added 15-20 pounds of muscle to a once skinny frame.
Kudos to you, Dontre, for putting in a lot of hard work in Coach Mick's chamber of horrors! We've been excited to see your true potential emerge since you committed to the Buckeyes - now you can either blow by, or blow up, defenders.
I know it's early, but this may be the post of the week!
Good job, Baylor (wait, let me re-write that): Good job, Baylor! Unfortunately it reminds me of the Who concert tragedy in Cincinnati, December 1979. It's a good thing for BU that no one was seriously injured.
On another note, the 127 year old woman looks like she could still kick a little ass! I'm thinking that daily consumption of tequila may play a part in her longevity, too.
...let's trade Rutgers for Navy as members of the Big Ten...
Just put them in the West, please! I'd hate to think about playing these guys every year! As someone mentioned on another thread, in the first half I was wishing we had opened with a cupcake (yeah, Sparty & scUM!); by the end of the game, I was glad we had played a tough, disciplined opponent that made us work hard for the "W".
I'd love to see LeBeau on campus, rocking the scarlet & gray.
Maybe a Defensive Coordinator Emeritus
Joe had 163, but actually closer to 400 if you count the ones that ended up in the 4th row...
I've noticed that a lot of people are getting dv's for expressing an opinion - most, it seems to me, aren't crossing the line in any way for snark or disrespect or other no-no's that could get you the ban-hammer.
But thanks for pointing that out, Jason, you *&$%!
Love it that Urban didn't say a word in his tweet - one picture, folks, one picture.
Lol! My God the resemblance is amazing!
About the right age, too, I think!
My buddy and I got kicked out of choir and had to serve an in-school suspension for junk-tapping each other in high school. It was hilarious!
At first glance, I thought a high school kid had wandered over to a Pop Warner practice. Concur, Apack614, that is one large young man! Wonder if he can run at all - what a weapon at tight end!
I don't know if Baker Commons is still there, I'm hoping Baker Beach is, tho! I used to go out of my way to get to class in early Fall and late Spring as the "Baker Babes" would oil up and get vitamin D the natural way!
Welcome Freshmen! You have an incredible ride in front of you. It won't be easy (but nothing worthwhile ever is); you'll be challenged in almost every area - politically, culturally, intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually (that's a good thing); and you'll end up with a world-class education, life-long friendships, amazing memories and a couple of National Championships!
Never felt bad for Lantry he was a loser.
Wow! How refreshing is that?! Thanks for the blast-from-the-past, Remy. The kickers may play a very large role in whether or not this team fulfills its goals this year. I'm cautiously optimistic that the 2014 Buckeyes will shock the world!
Tom Skladany's rug is pretty cool, man!
We'll have to wait for next year to see Urban "turn TG (Torrance Gibson) into a good QB"... I agree with your sentiments, though, Trey. If Joe Thomas can turn into a really good QB this year, the sky's the limit for this team. He doesn't have to be Troy Smith-great (though that would be incredible!), just channel his inner John Stockton to distribute the ball to all those playmakers!
"...exponentially more resources."
Johnny, thinking about the "golden orator" trying to spit out that phrase had me laughing so hard I think I pulled something in my side!
From what players have been saying, it sounds like UFM's practices are as physical and demanding as actual games! The upside, of course, is that most teams play the way they practice. The Romans employed that philosophy to mold their Legions into elite, disciplined, professional warriors ("Their drills are bloodless battles; their battles bloody drills" - Flavius Josephus). Pete Carroll also is a big believer in intense, competitive, physical training (as a matter of fact, I believe I saw/heard something about the Seahawks getting fined by the NFL for having practices that are too physical).
The downside, of course, is injuries.
Unfortunately, the few injuries that have actually occurred have bee sustained by some highly talented individuals.
Very true. However, with the kids Urban has been recruiting, almost all the players are "highly talented"! I'm not sure I've seen so much talent that could be playing on Sundays since some of Cooper's hauls.
Yeah, their facilities are very deficient. Heck, even Purdont and Indiana have much better practice fields & facilities.
I wonder when they'll get a waterfall in their locker room?!
Appalachian State was a pretty good team - for a 1AA (FCS) school! C'mon Brady, admit it - that had to be the most embarrassing loss in scUM history, nothing else even close!
Blatz = onomatopoeia
Brilliant! The scorpion peppers have a role in this scenario somehow...
So good ol' PU is going to try and make their games more watchable by selling beer and wine. That's a huge mistake from a marketing perspective, IMO: They already have the nickname, why not go with beer and a chaser of whiskey? Just sayin'...
On a related note: I wonder what kind of "garden" the University of Colorado at Boulder is going to offer their fan base...
All I can say is I'm really glad I attended when I did; I don't think I'd be accepted today.
