IDC what he's said over the years I'll always remember Herb forgiving the huge underdog Buckeyes the nod against the Miami Hurricanes. Correct me I'd I'm wrong but I think he damn near named the score w his prediction.
The people worrying about the changing of the atmosphere or the pitfalls of this situation are just plain wrong. Students won't be able to afford $8-10 beers, especially enough to get drunk enough to cause a disturbance. The drunks who do cause disturbances will already be plenty hammered from tailgating and sneaking In Whatever they want as they always have. This is more for the people who don't really tailgate and want to spend a few bucks on a couple drinks during the game. No more no less. Compare it to gay marriage, it has always been around in some way or another, people cried how terrible it would be if legalised, it happened and nothing has changed. The people who it helps are happy, the people who against havent been affected in the least. Because the more things change the more they stay the same.
More compensation for the school same compensation for the players who put the fans in the seats to make the money. The football team already keeps afloat about 25 OSU athletic programs, but the extra revenue should definitely not go to helping the players who are risking life and limb. seems legit!
Anyone else see the Red Army documentary about the their hockey team? It's excellent, definitely worth the 1.50 at Red Box!!!!
They couldn't play without each other. Some did play in the NHL they couldn't really hack it because it wasn't the system or style they were groomed to play in from birth. But I do think Detroit did win a cup with an all Russian line that when put together did magical things with the puck.
Can anyone review years past and see if there is a correlation between when a player looses his stripe and see if he had any impact as a freshmen? Or anyone who was close to last at losing their stripe and is now a star? Just think it would be cool to see what history can tell us is this case.
Did anyone read the overview about Tennessees Marcus Jackson? He was below Bosa on the Roto link. Said he could POSSIBLY be out for the season, which wasn't the shocker. It was the next sentence that said "In fact, a fellow starting offensive lineman has already asked to take Jackson's No. 75 jersey." Like Really? A teammate goes down only POSSIBLY for his entire senior season and you're worried about poaching his number? Am I wrong or does this just feel disrespectful? Please tell me no one on the Buckeys was asking to change to #5 right after Braxton blew his arm out! Teammates should have a lot more to worry about when a comrade goes down instead of jacking his jersey number.
Grade school kids are parrots of course they say don't do drugs now, it's easy, give it 10 years and it won't be as easy. This isn't that big of deal. They made a decision that should be theirs to make not someone else's or they fell behind a little in school. Thats it, life will move on! They didnt screw the world, its not totally appalling and indefensible, it's not the end of days. No need to label them bad kids or think any less of them.
I think we seen Mo in the best Buckeye scenario that he could have been in. Ball control O, massive OLine, and a D that got the ball back quick. Ya it would be cool to see how he'd handle an option, and what he could do with Meyer but Tres was the coach for him. I even think Guapo if all else was even would have been better in a Tressel O. Players like Saine and Ginn though would be incredible to watch with Meyer!!
Man 10 commits for 2017 already is crazy. These kids still have learning permits and are making decisions about college. A lot of room to grow in either direction. Scary!
Braxton w Barrett starting should be 15/10-1 for the Heismen w Cardale he 30/40-1 at WR. Bubble screens, quick outs, and slants will be easy for him to pick up on and don't need a lot of route running prowess. 50 yard bombs on the other hand are hard to adjust to. Barrett will prob see 90% of the snaps by the end of the year. About 60% in the begging though which probably won't give Braxton enough time to pad his stats against scrubs.
See I told everyone Braxton would be a starter, just didn't say where..
If the OLine is even half as good as they were last year there is no way this team loses a regular season game. 2 holds ALL year is pretty sick though, so I won't complain about 4 lol
This is the first I'm hearing of Sling TV and looking at their website it looks to good to be true. Only thing they need to learn to get around is the need of wifi. As soon as a company starts up that's strictly for wifi and can undercut the cable companies it will be the end of cable TV as we know it today. And if you do decide to do sling feel free to reply to any comment of mine and let us all know how it goes.
I cut my cable and Internet 3 years ago now. It was tough at first but after the first month or 2 it was smooth sailing. I still get a few channels with rabbit ears (ABC most importantly to see the Bucks most weeks.) I use the data on my phone for Internet and can do everything I could w wifi. Netflix is obviously stepping up their original programs and movie collection, along w redbox rentals I get to see everything I want without a $100-$150 bill every month!! Also the local library is an untapped resource of evey movie and tv show you could ever want, all for FREE. Sure you might have to wait a month or 2 but its still free, and most libraries combine their catalogs w other local libraries that will ship them to you.
The point of this rant? Fuck the cable companies they overcharge and their customer service is shit! Screw Comcast, TWC, Dish, Direct, etc they ALL suck! Give it 10-20 years once the older generation fades away they won't have a customer base anymore. People in their 20s now won't go back to them either, the future is digital. Death 2 Cable!
I remember when I was young my dream was always to have my highschool win a state championship tOSU win a national championship and the Dteelers win the SB all in the same year. Hell it still is kind of a dream of mine only I understand the improbability of it now. Atleast I've seen 2 of the 3 win multiple championships. My HS team never will (2 playoff appearances and 1 playoff win in 55 years lol) but I guess being a Steeler and Buckeye fan I can't have it all!
When did WVu become a top program?
If OSU could have kept the top 2 players in the state the last 4 years we would be a contender. As of now we are a bubble team at best. I know we get a few from ohio here and thee but we need to buckle down a put a fence up double den a bring it hard and early for the best in the state. We would be contenders year in and year out. Not saying this is Mattas fault there's blame to go around but he need to reevaluate how he goes after in state talent.
Who cares about camps? Regular season performance means more, and hell atleast they actually have pads on then. Seriously being a Tshirt hero in the Summer means shit come Saturdays in the fall! Same can even be said for the kids who show out, while great, doesn't mean shit come the season. On-field production against quality competition says more than anything, and I'm sure are coaches spend crazy amounts of time watching game film in the summer hence the 3stars on OSU showing out the last few years.
While i hate plugging ESPiN EVERYONE should go to their website and vote for the Buckeyes as Best team and Coach Meyer for Best coach. Tough competition against the US womens soccer team, need all the help we can get.
I don't know Jurko says no hard feelings but to me it seems like he doesn't really appreciate what happened. Comes off like tOSU didn't give him the full explanation that he wanted to hear. Jurko seems OK with not being allowed in but he also seems to not know a lot about why he wasn't. I know all the reports are saying academics but they don't go into depth. Was it sat/act scores, HS GPA, not enough credits, it could be any number of academic issues and someone at OSU needs to make it clear to him exactly what it was that blocked his admittance.
Dean on the other hand just sounds like a typical immature HS kid. He will need to overcome that to even see the field at Auburn, let alone fulfill his wish of getting burnt all up and down it by the Buckeyes.
Either or these 2 situations aren't putting the best of light on tOSU. Need to nip it in the ass before it actually turns into something more. I feel tOSU just needs to be a little more open with recruits and open up the lines of communication better with recruits. Be more up front and honest and lay out guidelines to each and every scholarship player stating exactly whats expected to be admitted into The Ohio State University.
However many wins scUM has coming in should be the kickoff time. If they suck 1-4, if its their norm 5-7 perfect, if they are half decent 8-10. One thing we won't have to worry about is an 11 or 12 kickoff anymore!
The numbers are definitely interesting but do absolutely no good in telling us who has the best or worst fans. Some stadiums could be more strict or some could search a little harder you just never know and can make the numbers say whatever you want them to. Mad respect to Iowa though. I think all schools should be required to document and release all arrest made at any stadium. It would make for GREAT offseason reading!!
Ya that's when Iggy was running shit in D1. If it wasn't for Mike Doss they would of had another 2 state championships
Weird hearing top picks talk so much about winning. It feels like it should be illegal for the Lakers to pick in the top 3. Someone call the commish!!
