If you're mean (or like calling people out, which I know you do) and practical, a penalty box with the purveyors of the days/weeks/months most asinine comment/thread seems likes good place for us to find out how to avoid the riff raff. It'll be no voting, so no double punishment. Just a warning of new trolls.
Um... Hit the italicized I button. You know...the one that's italicized.
Why bold, though?
He doesn't have measurables. His release is too slow, his velocity is too weak, his stance is too upright, he doesn't drive through the throw enough....blah blah blah.
He gets it done, EOS. "Pay the man his money."
I see you quoted the Kurt Warner scouting report. Keep doubting, quasi-hater/realist.
smooth jazz grows on you. Stay tuned.
I don't think the schools are voting on autonomy, we (power conferences) are just dictating to the NCAA to make it happen.
The voting in that info graphic was how things would get approved by the power 5 after autonomy was granted, I believe.
When they went to deliver the news of his release to JB, they found he'd already cleaned out his stuff and left #gotanearlystart
I'm listening...tell me more.
I've always thought Curtis did a really good job dealing with the situation. He is probably more disappointed than anyone that he's not been an All-American already. But he speaks glowingly of some of the young LB's, seems to be embracing the elder statesman role as an upperclassman, and really seems to be in a better place personally. Hopefully in the simplified scheme he can turn his brain off and use that god given size, speed, and talent to have an outstanding year. He deserves it.
Um, you seem petty.
Sad to hear. Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye. Thanks for the efforts young man! Best of luck to you going forward.
I don't like that you would like to see him only play 13 games. That means he's either injured or we're not making the B1G champ game and the playoff.
That is pretty much exactly a Carlos Hyde season
Congrats on the "random comment placement of the day" award
For atmosphere, night games can't be beat. For tailgaiting, night games can't be beat. As a parent with other responsibilities that typically get thrown out the window every Saturday, night games can't be beat. For recruiting, night games can't be beat.
Definitely my favorite random thread this off season. I say attach a string to the damper so you can open it from a distance. Load your semi auto shotgun with some small shot bird shot. Pull damper open...fire away, into the fireplace. If you don't have a semi auto shotgun, this is the reason why you need one.
I love the enthusiasm, but pump the brakes. They haven't even verbally committed to us yet, much less signed with us. I like what I'm hearing, though. Signed, bursting your bubble guy
They played this one during OSU day a couple of weeks ago. Filled up my DVR that day.
They eliminated us in the last world cup, so hate away
Herman and Meyer kept their foot on the accelerator the whole game, for starters. Defense got a couple of stops early (Pitt Brown INT the biggest), which allowed us to get a lead and force PSU into fairly predictable pass first offense. That took a lot of the typical indecision of our d and made them more aggressive. Dlineman didn't worry about the run and got after the QB, which hurried his throws and when our guys know he's throwing at the same time each drop back, even they could cover. Perfect storm. Will not be that easy this year.
Does my Chike jersey count as generic? That's the "Nike" I got from Chinatown for $15.
If our barometer for recruiting success or failure is Urban not getting his pick of the litter year in and year out, then not only has our QB recruiting been a failure, but so has every other position. I just can't believe we can't get 25 5 star guys to sign every year, 12 months in advance!!!!!
There are a lot of great players at every position, every year. The staff picks the ones to go after, regardless of rating. The update that order (I'm just guessing, but they do) all the time. Seeing a kid throw, having him visit and seeing his character, looking at his grades, his conduct off the field: all of these things can move a kid up or down the list. We don't know where people stand on the list, but if they commit to OSU the staff obviously wants them here. Just because they weren't the first choice at the beginning of the recruiting cycle doesn't mean they aren't by the time they commit.
As has been frequently said, Urban will bank a scholarship rather than offer one to someone he doesn't think deserves it. He's better at recruiting than everyone but a handful of coaches. I have to imagine he's sleeping just fine with who we end up signing. This year will be no different.
Collier reminds me of a slightly more athletic Chris Leak. Can't argue with what Urban got him to accomplish.
Yes, I agree, that's why I said "but he's been put there more often by his supporting cast." Whether he should have been in the spot is irrelevant though: he was put there more often, and had some big miscues. Troy wasn't put there as often, but didn't have that many miscues (or at least I don't remember them, possibly because we won most of the games).
I was specifically thinking about overthrows against TTUN ('11), Fla ('11), awful passing performance against MSU ('13), and an INT that sealed the loss against Clemson when Philly is in the clear if Braxton puts some touch on the ball. Those are plays that, despite our relatively garbage defensive performances, could have saved each of those games. Instead we have 4 losses in those games.
FIFA is as corrupt as they come, top to bottom. Replay ain't fixing that problem.
