Yeah, the MSU "Charlie Foxtrot" ("Cluster F#%k") is bitter - but the talent going off the draft board in the '90s was ridiculous; and even more frustrating was the fact that one or two total meltdowns during the season against teams we should have beaten - especially AACC - often cost us chances to compete for "MNCs". 

The fact Coop, God love him, never won a Natty with the talent he brought in blows my mind to this day.

That's a good insight, B&BaB. Conley showed it last year - in fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how well he played opposite Eli, who is easily a top 25 draft pick. 

As Coach Red Bull noted, tOSU is an NFL DB pipeline - has been as long as I can remember, and I've been paying attention for almost 50 years.

It would seem that way, but blood clots can happen at any age. Even though I'm 50-something, I felt like I was awfully young when I got a clot in my upper thigh (was just jogging). The doc said many athletes develop them as a result of other injuries - in my case it was from a really bad knee (no, I am not an athlete!). With proper meds and care, which he should get at OSU, he should be able to live a normal life - even stay active. 

Blessings to Donovan! Sounds like LJ may be looking for a padwan!

Thanks from all the working stiffs (like me) who couldn't watch on BTN and don't have DVR, Dubbs! You're on my Christmas list, brotha!

The only redeeming aspect to the Sibley situation (for Todd) is he's being asked to postpone his enrollment; and, as has been noted, if he chooses to look elsewhere he has plenty of time to do so. I agree it's not a good look, though. 

I wonder if Harris committed and/or Akers. That would certainly explain some things. Unfortunately young Mr. Sibley is learning a hard life lesson early - elite college athletics is a tough biz. I hope he chooses to stay, and uses this as motivation.

Good post Neutz. Our gut response is normal and human. However, I'll be in church today & have to pray for BOTH Racquel Smith, her children and the lunatic who decided a gun was the answer to a fender-bender. I hope justice is served and while the perp sits in prison for a looooong time, he gets his soul right, cuz there's a much higher Judge to whom he's going to have to answer.

Back in the late 90s, one of my son's friends (a girl about 14), said that "InSync" was better than the Beatles. I asked her, "Why do you think that?" Her reply, "Because they can dance!"​
I seriously thought about ordering her out of my car.

This is the second time in three days that someone has mentioned "whif(fing) horrible on OL recruiting" - I would really like to know where that has happened?
Will there be growing pains as three new starters are broken in? Of course. No one expected otherwise. To say that the staff has "whiffed" on recruits is just not accurate. They are talented, if very young and inexperienced. Might that translate to 3-4 losses? Perhaps, but I highly doubt it.

Yeah, even when I was in tippy-top shape many moons ago, there is no way I could do an "Iron Cross" on the rings - even an attempt would have ended in broken bones, torn rotator cuffs and, likely, much worse.

Congratulations to the men - bring home a Natty, gentlemen!
