He came a long way to essentially have courtside tickets to watch the 2014 -2015 team play.. you hit the nail on the head.. the fact that we have Tate guarding Kaminsky tells you all you need to know about this team.. especially when we have two 7 footers guarding other guys... Loving has not been the same.. but he can't get any open looks either with no interior post play of note...
sir.you are only missing Q's shot against Arizona...
This is the last opportunity for a wake up call for this team.. they need to take this loss to heart and win out and play Wisconsin competitively. Then they need to make a run in the B1G Tourney to Saturday.... I'm surprised that DAR has been taken out of his game. Unless he brings the ball up he just stands on the wing often times.... Of course when he gets the ball at the top of the key he does a great job running things.. but I would imagine a top 5 pick in the draft will be a bit more dynamic anywhere on the court. Penn State was the first team to really take him out of the flow and each team since has pretty much done the same thing. At some point he is going to figure it out.. which is why I still say we can win two games in March Madness.... Loving clearly is not the same player he was in the Maryland game... Amazing that he is so out of his game flow but he has played in 2 games in a month basically. Fix Lovings game and likely DAR goes along with it.
The positive news is good.. JTate and KBD are playing lights out... hopefully this is a wake call where Thad can make clear to them what is at stake in terms of starting well and playing a full game.
Oh well... ball out Thursday for Nebraska.. I expect 4-5 three's from Loving and DAR playing a solid game...
Watching how well the three QB's get along was a real joy to watch. What a year. What a team. Go Bucks.
He is pretty dialed in... there are many things he has done for the football program many HUGE things.. but he does them all anonymously or in the name of someone who inspired him when he was young.. pretty amazing.. I hope he is right and CJ shows that he can be a high character back up... that would be the best play for team chemistry and having the worlds greatest insurance policy... but my gut tells me that CJ will leave.. and take his chances. As said previously - his legacy is set at tOSU and he always has a place here and if he gets his degree he will be one of the greatest fundraisers ever for the university... not a bad backup plan.
I just noticed your signature and I just LOL... Well player sir.. Well played
This team does not yet know how to play together. Russell looks .. Well ... Like a freshman... Give it 2 weeks and u think we will shape up and b formidable come March...
Yes - actually for that game he could NOT get his coke supply and was having Withdrawl during the game... Sad - RG said that he was introduced to the drug when he hurt his back the year before. The story has a great ending though as his son graduated with honors from Yale and is currently in Harvard Business School... Amazing how life turns out and I'm sure Rod is so proud of his son. As I recall - Rods grandmother actually raised his son and he does not have much contact... But given the circumstances - what am amazing ending...
The 1978 Sugar Bowl was strange as our D showed up in the first half and actually had a goal line stand on Alabama's opening drive. Our QB was not himself that day for reasons many may already know... If that wasn't the case I really feel we could have won that one...
You should get the books for her ;-) although I am a bias reviewer... love the name.. I had to work hard to slip Emerson and Anne Parker past the goalie... Go Bucks
Thanks again for the kind words and the support!
226 - I also think Marshall throws for 50 of his own
This kid is unreal - complete and total class... What a joy it will b to spend the next 2-3 seasons with him.... We will b incredibly spoiled...
I felt as if was pulling on JT hard - things happen in football - just heard it's broken... Guess we have two great QB in the fall of 2015 -
Why you don't release a collection of these essays as a book are beyond me. Hunter Thompson mixed in with the wit and intellectualism of a young William F. Buckley if you ask me..Typical amazing stuff we come to expect to be spoiled with on a weekly basis. What a slice of life totally out of our day to day existence.. and.. only on the day of our 'revenge' game.. which seems downright silly in this context. Good thing you didn't detail how you had dreamed of "Killing the Spartans" for what they did to us last year. My only regret... or suggestion... can you please send our three very overly exposed current Buckeye "SuperFans" to the same airport the morning of the OSU/Michigan game?
Coach Bruce - How does it feel to have a children's book written about the magical 1979 team? haha.. seriously my question is this - One of my favorite traditions that I share with my kids that Earle Bruce started was holding the four fingers up to start the 4th Quarter. I always thought this was the best celebration of the endurance and attitude needed to succeed in anything. What was your inspiration to start this tradition and how did you players react to this.
