I love Spiels - one of the greatest to ever wear the S&G - but I think he proves UFM's point when he repeatedly mentions Shazier as standing out last year. There were times the rest of the LBs were exposed in games, and I hope it had a lot to do with the conflict about schemes and overall defensive philosophy. Bringing in Ash is seemingly a good move, if the Spring game was any indication. Did anyone else notice that Urban slid in a little "motivation" for Fickel & Co. as well: "There are players that have not been developed..."

Keep on pushing, Zen Master, keep on pushing...

If you watch old clips of Jesse O, he ran with a fluidity and grace that is amazing even today. Also, that upright style was (and still is) really unique. An incredible athlete and even better human being.

"We're the winningest program in the history of college football..."

I have friends that are scUM fans who, of course, always trot this out whenever we get into a "discussion" of our respective teams and their merits. My response is, "So what? If you're not looking forward, you're probably going backward." This may be one of the main reasons the Skunk Weasels are mired in mediocrity - yeah, their great-grandfathers, grandfathers and dads celebrated lots and lots of wins and championships, but they also drove Model-Ts, watched "The Honeymooners" live on B/W TV and thought lime-green shag carpeting was a good idea! Living in the (idealized) past is always easier than dealing with (harsh) present reality.

UFM is bringing in the Kights to teach leadership and esprit d' corps, Brady is doing BBQ. A metaphor for the difference between tOSU & Meatchicken...?

I don't know, AV, my wife says I act like a 12 year old most of the time  :)

Can we start talking about his public speaking skills, then? That should be good fodder for at least a year or two (if he's still around!).

Well reasoned and articulated, KHolmes. Thanks for the insight. I'm going to pass your insights on to some of my *ichigan friends - might help a couple climb down off the ledge...

EPH97, the smoke was actually around Arkansas...

Awesome, MMan, awesome!

I agree Sparty's is far and away the best... two thoughts, though: I really liked Minny's; and Purdon't/Wiscy - WTF?! Did they have some 4th graders design those?

This^^^

Urbz presser was very encouraging - especially about the linebackers. We all have known that the O-line was the major question mark entering this season (because, well, the secondary could only get better, and with Chris Ash, it seems we've turned that corner). I have total confidence in Ed Warinner's ability to coach a very talented, if young, group up to Buckeye standards.

Li'l Animal was awesome. Probably a great forum topic on who the best linebacker ever would be...

Back in the day I lived on W. 10th Ave. There were outdoor basketball courts on W. 11th across from the dorms. Went to play some pick-up ball one afternoon and Pete Johnson was there goofing around - he was all of 6' and probably 250 lbs. or more, a very large man! I was blown away when he jammed it from a standstill - amazing athlete!

If you're able, KHolmes, can you comment on what TTUN's fans feel about Brandon? Bacon mentioned "spreading the wealth" around to other sports like basketball - but to be totally objective, *ichigan's b-ball team has been pretty darn good for a long time (I'm gagging as I write this!), and the other sports have been competitive as well. He (Brandon) seems to be able to do pretty well when it comes to $$$ - I know the football team's struggles have grated on a lot of alums and fans (yes, I have some friends that are huge supporters of U*). Or, like the ways of love, is it really, really complicated?

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Bacon is a very good journalist with a lot of integrity - his article on scUM's attendance issues at the Big (out)House was excellent.

Love me some El Guapo rockin' those gold pants! He ended up at a great spot to run the rock in the NFL (good job, again, Brownies).

Comment 25 Jul 2014

It was a very good article. I'm with a lot of commenters on the thread, though - I'd break out car windows if I saw a child locked in a vehicle.

My wife and I were just discussing this issue yesterday due to a segment on the news. The reporter was talking about ways to "remember" your child in the back of the car. Our kids are grown (29 & 27); neither one of us, however, could ever imagine how a parent - no matter how busy - could forget their kid in the back seat! When ours were of child-seat age, I was attending grad school and working full time, and my wife was extremely busy as well... we couldn't even imagine forgetting one of our boys and leaving them in a hot car while we ran errands or went to work. Seriously, can anyone help me out here?

Mirror Lake had islands ... who knew?! I guess the glaciers have been melting for longer than we thought!

The only way Edsall and Franklin are going to be anywhere near the buffet at B1G Media Days is if they can fight their way past Jabba the Hoke first!

Comment 23 Jul 2014

Agree about the '73 O-line, Scarlet. I'd put Lachey, in there with Hicks and Stringer... It's hard to pick (after Orlando), cuz there have been so many great O linemen that played for our beloved Buckeyes. Also, if you want to go waaaaaaay back, it's hard to leave "The Toe" off the list - Lou Groza.

Comment 23 Jul 2014

Our home kit (white one) has a nice touch with the Buckeye leaves on it. Agree that Iowa's and the Twerps are "pretty boss" - State Penn's and Sparty's aren't too bad either. TSUN, well, they still suck, so...

Comment 23 Jul 2014

Denny, KevinJ or any other bourbon aficionados in the 11W community - when is Elijah Craig's 21 year old single barrel coming out? I was told November last year; then it was this summer, now...?! Anyway, may have to make the trek to C-bus to taste some of those tacos DJ pimped (and, yes, if they're pouring Four Roses Small Batch for $3 a glass, I may pitch a tent beside the bus - become a "Taco-Traveler" and follow them around... or would that be a "Taco-Head"?)!

That's a great gif - Joey Bosa is a straight up athletic freak!
