Give Farmer this off-season...but yes I agree
It is likely he won't play at MSU if the prosecutors do their job. With this much evidence a plea deal truthfully isn't necessary. Campbell should get a plea deal but only to spare taxpayers money and the victim time and stress and the plea deal should not be light.
If they prosecute the case accordingly, Campbell will never play at MSU. Kids need to learn responsibility and being a D1 athlete is a privilege with responsibilities. When you do something so heinous as it appears he has done there is a price to pay. I hope he catches on at a lower level school, earns a degree, and grows from this experience.
If the Browns give $6mil in guaranteed money to Davone Bess, can't do much worse to see if Santonio has something left in the tank!
I'm not sure there is another player past or present who has had me so engaged in the game as Craft does. Seriously, the play at the end of the game Sunday when dove to snatch the rebound from Payne, I jumped up and was screaming and pumping fists just like Craft.
We're going to miss this guy more than we know. He just brings intensity, focus, work ethic, the whole damn kitchen sink and then some and it's real special to watch and I'm damn proud he is a buckeye.
Rex didn't tattoo Santonio's jersey on his leg tat of his wife..
I'm hoping he makes it into the booth someday.
I know Ohio State players fare pretty well in their post playing day media jobs, and the media will employ rapists (Sharper), murderers (R. Lewis) and a rapist-murder (Craig James, killed 5 hookers)...but Santonio certainly does not fit the mold of someone destined for the booth.
Uncle 9er drops some gold!
If you're coming for a bachelor party, I would probably avoid the campus bar scene unless you want to feel old.
Short North, Arena District, Downtown, or German Village are probably all safe bets. As for a specific bar, it depends on what your buddy is like and what he enjoys.
How about the entire defensive staff? I don't think it is necessary to pin the success on any one coach. They are all on the grind to make the buckeyes better.
I've been a staunch Fickell defender and no matter what happens this season he is and will always be a great buckeye and one that we all should be thankful and appreciative for.
That being said, Fickell is the DC and this year is sink or swim. I don't think we need a top 20 defense in order for this season to be a "success" as far as defense is concerned but there has to be a vast improvement in play.
Take into consideration the Ash hiring and what his assigned duties would be along with Lukes, it was a strange explanation. All fairly vague for a straight shooter like Urban.
Didn't Urban say that Ash is in charge of fixing the secondary (which is why Coombs is only "assisting" in that department), that the entire defensive staff would have a voice in the game plan, and that Fickell would be calling the plays on Saturdays?
What isn't straightforward about that?
Oyster, of course Fickell will get zero credit, why should he? I could spit out statistics on his defenses of the past, awards he has won, and some plausible reasons for the defensive decline but why would we let that get in the way of a good stoning?
Fickell is terrible and should never receive any credit for the work he does with our defense or recruiting!
My Dad is 59 and runs half marathons on a completely blown out ACL. He isn't the same as a top flight college athlete and nor are high school girl soccer players.
non-medical explanation...a sprain is actually a tear and the severity of Vonn's sprain/tear required surgery.
This is what I felt like...
It goes both ways I'm sure and both have a huge impact on recruits. I hope more than anything that if Tom Herman leaves, the relationships he formed with past, current, and future buckeyes remain and that he has relationships like Larry Johnson has with his recruits.
We're Ohio State and that is the main sell, it helps Coach Herman is awesome.
Yep, good point...Tom should quit recruiting
I would like to see less carries from him but I think you are pretty spot on with those projections for yards.
I had the pleasure of working with football for a short time while he was there, and holy shit, that dude cared about EV. ERY. ONE.
Agreed. I worked for the Athletic Department (primarily football) from 05-08 and it was a joy to see Tressel. He was friendly, engaging, treated everyone with respect. He remembered names, remembered specifics about the 30 second interaction you had with him weeks/months before. You would be in a room full of importance and Ohio State "royalty" and Coach Tress would still shoot you a friendly hello and smile.
I'm not making excuses for the missteps he took as a coach, just confirming the guy was/is as genuine and as caring as they come.
They haven't released 2014 student ticket info. Here is the 2013 student ticket guide.
Bottom line, don't miss your window to purchase tickets or you'll be shit out of luck.
Biddle is horrible.
Saban offers Ohio kid,...Urban gets commitment from Ohio kid!! Come on LJ!
I don't think the example you chose (EzE) is really a "disparity" per say as much as just a style in reporting. Is Darron Lee the "starter" at WILL LB? Not at all, but he was the "starter" yesterday in the sense that he ran with the 1s, first. Same with EzE, he ran with the 1s first and was the default "starter". Long way to go in spring ball and fall practice before a depth chart is solidified.
I wouldn't read too much into it.
