My wife calls it "Buckeye porn"
I'm willing to give Fitz some slack here - he's a "young" Buck - at least he knew the song reference was from The Eagles!
ESPN's love for the SEC is like a dog that can't be broken from humping legs.
Thanks for the clarification Buckeyeupnorth.
What is it with MSU players and handguns? At least he didn't do something stupid and shoot himself in the leg (*cough* Plaxico Burress *cough*) - I mean, who would do that?!?
DBU - going all the way back to Jack Tatum, through Shawn Springs, Antoine Winfield, Chris Gamble, Nate Clements, Mike Doss, Will Allen, Malcolm Jenkins, Donte Whitner ("Hitner"), Bradley Roby, (next up)!
I know other long-time (read "old"!) Buckeye fans, like myself, are in awe of what is taking place right now - it's always been great to be a Buckeye, however, this may be the best era in the history of OSU football we've ever seen (and that isn't just "recency bias" - we "old dogs" remember Woody's heyday).
I hope this kind of stuff ends up on the bulletin board at the WHAC - a surefire cure for complacency (if that is even a problem)!
^^^^ Spot on, Stinson. I believe Paul Brown would have been the one to introduce the Spread and read-option - the man was a true innovator. Woody, however, took the program to another level.
That's an interesting thought experiment, Phi. Who else? Corny Greene running the offense with the read option; Archie in the backfield; some burners like Paul Warfield at H-back; Doug Donley ("White Lightning") stretching the field... Wow!
LeCounte's "comet" would be a really big boom, I think - earth shaking, even! (I hate auto correct, too,
Matbuck, er, Matnut!)
Yeah, that video of Mickey Marotti's house of horrors almost made me want to puke in a garbage can.
Too bad about the mouth-breathers, glad I wasn't around them - I did see JT, Cardale, Bruce Judson, Zeke and others sign some autographs for kids on the field - thought they handled themselves with class and character.
What a great evening. There were a decent number of Buckeye fans in attendance (maybe a couple of thousand? I'm not great at doing crowd size); what really stood out to me was how "tight" this team is: from Cardale and JT throwing to each other, to 'Zeke messing with some of the recruits (Judson, I think) like a big brother, to the way the current players were coaching-up/mentoring these prospects - Urban has created something special here. I don't believe I've seen anything like it in my 50+ years of being a Buckeye fan. All I could think was, "Wow! Watch out B1G!"
BTW, the video of the workouts they showed the campers made me want to puke! Holy **it! No wonder they wore down 'Bama & Oregon!
It was great seeing these young men in action, as well as the current and former Buckeyes coaching, mentoring, goofing off - definitely a culture of mutual respect, hard work, as well as fun.
I was impressed that Bruce Judson came into the stands and signed a bunch of stuff for kids - he's "all Buckeye" for sure! Also saw Cardale and JT taking time to sign t-shirts and stuff for the kids. Urban has recruited some really, really, really great human beings, as well as phenomenal athletes!
Quick question: Why is there a section(s) with "AA" in it/them?
Interestingly, I was at Dodd Rehabilitation Hospital (across from The James) a couple weeks ago visiting a friend. They told me he was in the "blue" gym. A red flag kinda popped up. Then, they told me he was in "the yellow room inside the blue gym"!!! I thought, "WTF?!?" I even said, "As an alumnus, I have to ask: Who made the decision to have a yellow room inside a blue gym here at tOSU? They should have been fired on the spot!" The nurses thought it was funny; I was (almost) dead serious!
2 UVs for you Boca! Welcome to the best damn CFB site in the land!
You may just be my long-lost third son, Rosenbuck! My oldest loves the classics (on which he was raised; in fact, he was nursed as my wife listened to Pink Floyd & Zeppelin & Allman Bros., etc. in the early morning hours); my youngest (same age as you) is in a "post-punk Indie" band in Denver. Whatever the hell that is - it's really loud, though!
It's like the mile high club but better!
Could you please let us all in on those perks, cuz I didn't know anything about them!
Great job, Remy.
And I believe I qualify!
Great response, Buckzilla. I would have added, "As long as you guys are going to keep Jimmy V's title banner up, Wolfpack boy!"
It's the 40th anniversary of "Jaws", isn't it? Something fishy here!
Best pic of the day
From a Tom Clancy novel, I think. "I don't play golf. I already know how to swear."
So much this ^^^^^^^^^ Talent and character are a tough combination to beat - in any endeavor.
Not sure who has the better post: WN for using "cloaca" in the first place, or Gum for explaining what it is.
Bitterness will corrode the soul, Mr. Bianchi. Let it go. It's been 5 years since Urban was at UF and has changed in many respects, if you haven't noticed. The kids being recruited to OSU are the whole package - talent and character.
Never. Gets. Old.
Well, Virginia is for lovers...
