Lol! My God the resemblance is amazing!

About the right age, too, I think!

Comment 29 Aug 2014

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!

Comment 29 Aug 2014

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.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

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!

Comment 25 Aug 2014

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...

"...pour the whole damn thing into an Absinthe-washed glass ..."

How in the world did I miss gem earlier? Tell us, Hodgey old chap, what was it like at Gertrude Stein's Paris salon with Ezra, Ernest and Alice B. Toklas?

Comment 20 Aug 2014

Well, except the Heisman.

Who knows, brother Pastor? Johnny "Cleveland" and Jameis "Crab Legs" Winston had as much experience as JT. Stranger things have happened. Agree, though, nothing has changed as far as goals and expectations - from the lips of Urban to the ear of El Elyon!

Comment 20 Aug 2014

Mike Thomas is going to give DBs nightmares this year.

Dude is freakin' huge! Dontre's no skinny frosh anymore, either. Coach Mick, take a bow (and give me 50 pushups; 100 lunges and 200 sit ups)!

Ramzy, I love your work, man. You are an amazing writer ... but adulterate bourbon with anything other than ice or a little "crick water"?!?!
