That's from the ESPN coverage where you could watch the game with no commentary I think....awesome to see that for sure.
Solid points. But OSU fans are a Fickell bunch, & until Matta takes another deep tourney run, the knives will be out!
I don't give a rats ass. I was watching last night & they were going on about how great MSU's corners have been. And they've been great, but from Thomas's perspective, he's a guys who's performance wasn't hampered by the great MSU secondary, so I don't mind what he said or when he said it. I don't care about shit talking in general though. Would I do it...nope. Do I think it's potential bulletin board material...could be. Still, I just don't care. Crush it on the field & I'm a happy man. In 2014, MT & others crushed it on the field.
That's a shit-load of stink-eyes.
As of now, there's no room anyway - so oh well.
Here, here. Signed, Mr. Nuts.
That's right. Even then, it would suck, but the sun is guaranteed to rise regardless.
They haven't needed playmakers since the 80's & even then, they didn't need playmakers.
I'm not counting Ferns out until next February, but either way, I'm not reading Birms comments like you are. I see it as Birm saying it's up in the air & he's not sure where Ferns is going. Doesn't sound like Ferns knows. It may be cliche, but it's a big decision that isn't easy to make. Last I saw, Birm said the staff is "cautiously optimistic" on Ferns but not sure of anything. I'll admit it hasn't seemed necessarily optimistic but also doesn't seem a lost cause. Saying it's a shame he won't be in or OSU lost another big time Ohio kid is a bit premature in my personal estimation.
It's incredidibly rare to have a person with a job take the person who's there to replace them under their wing & provide encouragement & support. That type of selflessness is something the world could use a whole lot more of. Everyone is out for #1...that Grant was a team first guy & was dedicated to lifting his team & particularly his unit up, in spite of the ramifications it could have on his own PT, speaks volume of his character. What a great read about a genuine inspiration. Thank you!
I'm not sure about this, but I always felt that TP did that (saying "the university of Ohio State") to add some drama to his announcement. I remember hearing "the university of" & thinking for a split second that he was going to Tsun...then he said "Ohio State" & we all celebrated. I felt it was less an actual error & more him adding a bit of intentional flare/excitement. Of course, I could be totally off on that & he just screwed it up, but until I speak to him about it - I'm going with my theory. ;)
Tom Herman in Mensa? Why are we just now hearing about this?!?!
It's late DJ & you'll likely not see this, but that 6 min shot in True Detective is one of, if not the greatest piece of cinematography/film-making in history...thanks for posting that - I'd forgotten about it. Amazing. Hoping the next round of that show comes out soon & is half as good.
American history, IMO. Even to this day.
Yes. And favorite beer, whiskey, restaurant, pants, t-shirt, toothpaste, etc, etc, etc...
He obviously wanted to stay but knew this was his best chance at making the most fininancially & that's a tough thing to turn away from. Basketball's an injury riddled sport. He could wreck his knee or back next year & lose out on millions. I love that the guy struggled like he did with this...Of course another year would've made me very happy but DR has a fan for life in me.
Can you imagine Bbaxton playing for Ttun? What a strange sight it would be. Rolling out to right, cutting backing to the left, looking terrible in those disgusting colors but with that beautiful gold pants necklace still dangling from his neck...haha. It would be horrifying & amazing all at once.
Seriously, I cannot see him leaving for any of those teams. There is honestly only one team in the country where it would even begin to make sense for him to go & that's Oregon & I highly doubt that would happen. But hey, you never know what the future holds. We haven't heard the last of the rumors & speculation as these media types need something to talk about for the next 4-5 months.
Amen to this. After last year's Spring, I was scared that we were in for a long year without Braxton...turns, those dudes did alright. Not worried about any of OSU's QBs anymore.
On a day when the National Champs shattered Spring Game attendance records, Finebaum redirects & gets people talking about Bama & the SEC...huh...that's interesting. Man.
I suspect that at some point in the season, if healthy that he gets a starting nod. Not sure if he's the guy all season, but he'll get a shot, I truly believe that.
Sigh. I've still not forgiving Gene Smith for not imposing a bowl ban in 2011.
Get at over it. Spilt milk.
Braxton would have torched the ND defense in Miami.
“I would take our two over Ohio State’s, but in terms of depth, I don’t know that anybody has a better situation than we do with the two quarterbacks that we have.”
Ok, I've read this a number of times & I think he's saying "I like our guys better than OSU's guys even if OSU has more depth". Doesn't read like that's what he was saying, but I think it's what he meant. Still stupid no matter how you slice it though. See, I have a degree in deciphering stupid.
Ce la vie...
At this point, I trust any of the guys on the roster can handle their business...Yes - even the freshman. Both of them.
I recommend not worrying at all. Not even a teeny tiny little bit. As for ND...so what? Kelly's a great recruiter. Maybe he tells kids they'll start right away since his current team isn't so good. That & tradition. Who cares. OSU is fine. I promise.
