According to the google Cardale T Miller will start!
One question for those who attended other schools. Do you root for the Bucks over the school you attended?
I am a Wright State grad (BS) and a tOSU grad (MS). I also attended UD for a year. Wright State and UD don't have D1 football teams, so football obviously root big time for tOSU. I do check UD's football score every Sunday morning. Basketball can be tough. It was great the year all three made the tourney. I root for all three.
What I can't stand is bandwagon fans. When I was at UD seemed like more kids with ND shirts than UD. Being Catholic grew up a ND fan - the priest mentioned them every Sunday in the fall. But the kids at UD with the ND gear were typically jerks. In my book one should always root for one's own school first. My detest for ND started while at UD and continues to this day.
Every time I see these, I thank the 11W gods for the no jiggling rule!
Which flag are we going to discuss next week?
Last week's flag = Mississippi
This week's flag = Maryland
I recommend Virginia's. Good warm up for Sept 7th's tilt in Blacksburg.
While technically you are correct,"tweets/week" is just more poetic.
Of course not knowing the difference between the different forms, to me a tweet means any form of social media, much like google means doing a internet search.
There is no Buckeye I want to have a better season than Tracey Sprinkle. Not because I want to make jokes, but I love to see a young guy redeem himself. As an older person, >50 years old, seeing Tracey do well gives me hope for the future!
1817 - Mississippi statehood granted
1861 - Mississippi secedes from Union
1865 - end of US Civil War
1894 - bars and stars are added to the Mississippi State flag
1896 - Plessy v. Ferguson - US Supreme Court legalized institutional racism
1954 - Brown v Board of Education - US Supreme Court strikes down Plessy v. Ferguson making institutional racism illegal
2015 - Mississippi State flag still has bars and stars
I am with you JS. That is why they are called opinions, You can assume anything you want and they don't need to based on anything. I could argue that we would have beaten VA Tech last season if Jones was QBing. Foster would not have run the bear D against a QB like Jones. Jones would have gone over the top all day... but, I won't argue that. Last season was what it gloriously was. I am excited looking forward to what the new season will bring!
Ok, but the photo is not of a 7 ft rabbit.
Don't see the problem. I have never seen any scientific evidence that meth cause long term brain damage!
Brother Rosen, I see no relevance between the story, your comment and the photo you included. I'd appreciate it if you removed the photo. Peace.
Pat Forde gets my vote. He thinks he is a journalist who writes about sports as a way to write about the state of man. A Frank DeFord,wantabe, but just a George Will-ish blow hard. His attacks on tOSU are not that our teams are not good, but that some how Buckeyes are less virtuous and, therefore, less deserving of winning. He is just upset that, despite it's history, his beloved UK basketball lives in the shadow of its neighbor to the north.
Mark May, like a gnat in your ear is bothersome, but mostly harmless.
I am all for not naming the QB before the game. But, starting the game with some gimmick sends the wrong message. I want the Bucks to be laser focused from the first play and take it to the Hokies, the Warriors, the ... Wolverines, the .... and not let up until Undisputed II for UndisputedU.
I wish I was good at this interweb thingy. I would draw a cartoon of a guy standing next to the exit of a locker room at a football stadium somewhere below the Mason-Dixon line holding out "random" pants with money falling out of them. Maybe one of our resident 11W artist would be able to draw it.
I hope I missed the sarcasm. The last thing I want for this beloved state and its flagship school is to be referred to as the new Alabama.
After reading the WMD about kodokushi I envisioned years from now DJ's corpse rotting on his living room couch with empty Four Loko cans strewn about the room and a half eaten twinkie laying on his chest. Empty, dusty frames on the mantle reserved for the yet to be identified Mrs. DJ and yet to be conceived DJ Jrs and Jrettes (Of course the framed photo of King Dolodale will be on the couch at his side.) Let us, the Eleven Warriors, pledge now that at least one of us will regularly check on DJ to make sure he does not die lonely and to make sure his cats have more to eat than old twinkies.
Were those the flesh colored ones? Once they became rank smelling had to be thrown out. At least the cloth cover ones could be washed and not smell too bad.
Thirty plus years ago, when I played, offensive linemen were not allowed to extend their arms, even if they were within the frame of the body. Had to block with hands in and elbows out - chicken wing-like - more impact on shoulders, forearms and elbows. Forearms and elbow would get cuts and deep bruises without the extra pads. Today, with extended arms allowed, less impact on shoulders,forearms and elbows, thus smaller and less pads needed. Better today, defensive linemen who could use their hands had quite the advantage. Safer too, keeps head away from most impact. The game has become about leverage, and there are few who understand this better than Bosa - game ending sack at PSU was all about leverage - and leverage is generated in the abs and lower body. If I am a coach, much more interested in a player's leg press than bench press!
Pretty sure dude is gender neutral. My 16 and 17 daughters and their friends refer to each other as dude all the time.
Reading about the identity of the mansion owner in London reminds me of Bram Stoker's Dracula. The story starts with a British lawyer traveling to Transylvania to get papers signed by the Count to purchase properties in England. The Count needs to move to a more populous region in order to sate his sanguine lust. … A great read; a good way to pass the time between now and Sept 7.
Arguing with fans of another school is like arguing about which is better Coke or Pepsi - a big waste of time.
We love our Buckeyes, they love their Gators. We all hate fair weather fans, so respect them for their loyalty and move on.
Interesting, thanks for the reply.
As a parent I wish I knew a good way to "wave brooms" without being mean or a jerk to help prepare my children for a world that seems to be every increasing in chaos.
