How many first rounders are on this D? Serious question, not rhetorical: Bosa, for sure; Washington, with another year under LJ, Sr., very likely; Lee, probably (if he comes out); Bell, depends on what he does this year (and if he comes out); Perry, seems possible, if not likely; Tyvis Powell, a stud... Good Lord, the Silver Bullets have the potential to be lethal!
Jaylen Kelly-Powell sounds like a very intelligent young man, given the schools he says he considering (Duke, Vandy, AACC & the good guys). He sounds even more intelligent because he has tOSU "very high" on his list, even though he and the fam are "life long *ichigan fans"!
Loading up with speed and athleticism in the backfield - wow!
According to the PL members, you're on the clock with shiiter duties, Gum!
A couple of UVs for you, good sir! Remember to wear the respirator!
Grandma gets salty with Sparty - awesome. I love the added detail of her rolling out on the porch with her walker.
Imagine her response if it had been the skunk weasels!
I'm not clear on the post to which you're referring, Buckloving.
I don't want to downplay the suspensions - the players not making the trip to Blacksburg have hurt themselves, their school, the fans of Buckeye Nation, the coaches and, especially, their teammates. However, it sounds as if Big Bear has learned from his mistakes and is "laser (focused)" on doing what he needs to do to be a leader on and off the field. Also, if the reasons for the suspensions are true (missing class/smoking "la yerba"), I think we can mostly agree that these aren't major issues (such as brandishing a weapon, beating up a woman, assaulting someone, or even stealing crab legs from the local Winn Dixie)! Would it have been better for Bosa, Dontre, Jalin and Corey to keep their respective noses clean? Of course, but these are stupid things college kids do (I won't even mention the dumb things I did as a student at tOSU). By taking a definitive stand - even if it's painful - UFM has placed a stake in the ground and announced, "It doesn't matter if you are an All-American or a major contributor on offense, the team is more important than any single player."
That will produce a great deal of benefits in the long run.
So, Tress was ahead of the curve when it comes to special teams - who'd a thunk it? I'm glad Urban emphasizes "9 units strong"!
I have a son in Boulder and one in Denver. We go out at least once a year. Where is this Buckeye bar to which you refer?
I think that's Phyllis's from Mulga, AL line...
Thanks for reminding me of my high school love life, AZBUCK-I!
On topic - I don't think Ramzy's article should be done every year ... it probably needs to be done about 4 times a year! Unfortunately, idiots are going to be idiots, and the next Laostar7 or whatever-the-hell-his-twitter-handle-is, probably is thinking, "Yeah! But I give good advice!"
You are spot on, BiC'burg - that was not handled too well by Cooper & Co., in my opinion. It's telling, isn't it, that under UFM this team is growing closer, rather than splintering into factions, in the midst of one of the most epic (if not the most epic) QB battle in college football history.
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!
