Ken-Yon Rambo had a pretty cool name....
..its too bad Tress didnt suspend the tat-5 for "violation of team rules"... no one would have ever questioned it.
NCAA can get involved when 6-8 players are suspended and the coach wont discuss the reasons.... something fishy going on.... and that dude has been suspended indefinitely-- I am sure that young lady will be paid off to say she consented to it after all and was too drunk to remember-- he will be reinstated. Thats how Miami rolls.... they justify thugs.
I live in South Florida... and I have heard these Canes fans standing on their soapboxes about Tressel.... In the past few months Miami has had a player arrested for assault on a police officer (charges were mysteriously dropped after a booster paid someone off), a player arrested for Rape (same player texted his friend while in custody to destroy evidence) and as many as 6-8 players suspended for at least the first game if not more... but new Coach Al Golden refuses to talk about the reasons for the suspensions. It sounds like the NCAA needs to take a look at what is going on in Coral Gables. For those interested, here is the police report.... this kid is a complete idiot. Thug U lives!! http://vmedia.rivals.com/uploads/903/1092722.pdf
I have been railing against Herbie on this blog for a few years... This man no longer (and maybe never did) has loyalty to the very univeristy that created his montorous ego. When Herbie first Joined ES(ec)PN, HE was the fresh face of Ohio State and he was the positive image of Ohio State as Cooper was the ultimate loser and OSU always lost to Michigan and/or the bowl Game. Herbie brought his kids on TV, dressed them in OSU gear and openly rooted for OSU knowing HE would be the story for daring to support his team when all of Buckeye nation Knew Coop would ultimately lose.
Fast forward to the Tressel years and Herbie was no longer the fresh optomistic face of OSU..that title (and ultimately the limelight) went to Jim Tressel. Fans flocked to Tressel (at Herbie's expense) and Herbie got more and more resentful of the lack of attention going in his direction, so he became an eager and willing participant in bashing Tress and the players around him. Herbie has needless bashed Troy Smith, Terrelle Pryor, and others and garnered his attention in a negative way. 2004, 2006, 2007, 2010 were years that Herbie took unusual glee in bashing OSU for losses, indescretions, etc...
I have not watched GameDay since after the 2006 loss to Florida because it was after that game that I realized just where Herbie was going.... but, the final straw for me was this past season when Herbie took it upon HIMSELF to break the story about the TAT-5 on the night BEFORE Ohio State would be announcing it. He did it on a nationally televised bowl game and did it himself. He did not have to do that and could have asked Musburger to do it and just kept his mouth shut or not do it all. It was coming out the next day... Herbie just wanted his name to be part of the story for the wrong reasons. And he added insult to injury by bashing Pryor calling him all sorts of things and questioning whether he should ever see the field again... isnt that the coache's decision.
I have no idea what he has said during the Tressel situation, because I have deliberately stayed off of ES(ec)PN, but I do know that he is leaving for his own reasons and they have nothing to do with OSU fans.... he just wants the headlines. I hope he quits his radio show and I hope he gets ripped by Tennesse fans worse, because no one likes a traitor on no one respects one. goodbye and good riddance.
Response coming today.... lets wait and see....
Herbie has become a douche.... Outing the Tat-5 before the offical findings were released was a scumbag move. HE did not have to do that on a Nationally televised bowl game..he could have let it play out and then commented. He has been making a national name on the back of his own school and has made his dislike of Pryor personal. In my eyes Kirk is fast becoming no better than Mark May and his play by play has become more about himself than calling the acutal games. I stopped watching Gameday in 2007 with the barrage of Buckeye Bashing after the National champ. loss in Glendale.
Thank you for keeping us safe...
um............ am I missing something here??????
"Newton turned scouts' heads when he ran the 40 yard dash in 4.59 seconds"
"Dane Sanzenbacher turned in a nice 40 time, running in the mid 4.5s."
Ramzy..... wow!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you..... I have been posting my increasing dislike for Herbie here for a few years. He has lost his edge and has become so full of his own ego and self promotion that he no longer has credibility. I stopped watching Game Day in 2007 when the SEC speed thing was repeated 25 times a broadcast. Herbie no longer adds value and just repeats the same old mantras over and over...... his outing of Pryor, Herron, Posey, Thomas, and company was the absolute final straw for me because HE DID NOT HAVE TO DO IT DURING A BOWL GAME IN PRIME TIME!! He went out of his way to thrown a player he despises (Pryor) under the bus along with his buddies. That was nothing less than slander of college age kids and Herbie showed himself to be an ego maniac using his position to throw people under the bus to further his career.
His varsity letters should be revoked.....
Looks like it was more than a sprained ankle.
Herbstreit was on talk radio here in south Florida yesterday AM (as he is every Weds AM). This was 8 hours before the Urban Meyer resignation and he was talking for 1/2 hour about how fantastic the University of Miami Hurricanes job is, and how "several top-notch" coaches have contacted HIM about HIS feelings about the job. He was saying that there are coaches (I cant mention the names) who really want to come to Miami and just need to have the proper offers made, blah, blah, blah.
In my opinion, Herbie has jumped the shark and actually thinks he is a relevant part of what goes on in the college football world. He jumps on the bandwagons of the flavor of the month, and has developed an over-inflated sense of self. Notice that every game he calls ends up with Herbie talking about how HE has seen all the best teams and how HE knows that this team could play with any team in America and how He has talked to the best kids and their families
I no longer (since 2007) watch Gameday or any college football shows on ESPN as Herbie, Desmond Howard, and Chris Fowler are too much for me to stomach. These shows have become all about them instead of what is truly happening. Where are the stories about Tressel running the most consistent and winningest program, where are the stories about Ferentz getting all the accolades and having so many arrests??/ Oh, Cam Newton cheated?? Well, we dont have evidence so lets move on.... where the hell was that when Clarrett went thru his stuff???
thanx to Cecil and Cam Newton, this is how recruiting will now be conducted:
That basketball court @ Oregon is horrible.
"I'm not going to be able to wave a magic wand myself and fix some of the issues," Rodriguez said. "Some of the problems are not going to get fixed overnight."
One BIG problem will be fixed when DickRod gets canned following another loss to OSU.
Silence the doubters... I love it. If (when) OSU get to the National Champ. game, Mr. Hanscel should be given the honor of dotting the I. Simple, eloquent and to the point....
Bielema neds to learn that Jim Tressel is his Daddy.....
My opinion is that the Canes are showing some desperation here putting in a True Frosh. Offensive lineman almost mid season as a starter. I think they are starting to realize that Ja-Foury Harris is not the answer and they need to go to the ground game in order to avoid games with multiple interceptions by their QB. I think they see that big body as a way to get running room-- again, my opinion is that it will not be good for this young man's development. Randy Shannon must win his bracket of the ACC this year otherwise his seat is gonna get real hot--- the Canes have never been to the ACC Championship (let alone win it) since they arrived in the league.
I have been thinking that Saine has been used wrong ... Percy Harvin comes to mind.... quick passes and then run. Saine is def. not a between the tackles kinda guy. Hall has earned the playing time.
Thankfully I have always lived on the East coast...... but, you are lucky enough to get late games earlier.
I may be in the Minority here, but I have always preferred the Noon or 1pm kickoffs. Get up, have breakfast, watch (or go to) game, and then on with the rest of the day from 4pm forward. A 3:30 kickoff makes it impossible to get almost anything done before kickoff and it is almost dark when the game ends.
My Best Game Ever was in 1995 vs Illinois @ Home. It was Cold as hell--sleet, rain, wind, and snow. Eddie George Racked up 314 yds rushing that Day to go along with double digit yds in receptions and a TD catch. He had over 400 yds of total offense and was Superman that day. The Stadium was chanting E D D I E E D D I E and no one cared how cold it was..... after the game, we went to my friends house in Gahana and celebrated with Steaks and beer!! I don't think I will ever see a more dominant performance again.
Mangino in the Big Ten.... Maybe he can do the Big-10 food tour with Blackledge during the ABC/ESPN telecasts..... all the buffets from Pennsylvania to Illinois are getting their signs ready " You've been here 3 days--time to go home now coach".
