I am so surprised that everyone is shocked at this. No way he was coming back next year, injury or not, so why prolong it. Just go work on being the best he can be without any outside distractions that would include school. School will always be there the NFL waits on no one.
Totally disagree, the university will be there whenever he wants to go back. And most schools will let you finish for free (not that it will matter when he's a millionaire). His job is now football, he should maximize his time put towards learning and improving at that. Which at this point is recovering from surgery.
Would you want to get hit by Bosa or a blitzing Lee? I wouldn't be able to stand for a week let alone finish the game.
And this is why despite their success they will always be little brother. UM filled a much bigger stadium by a lot more than that even when they were awful. MSU is #2 in the country and can't even fill 75% of the stadium? That's pathetic.
Okay but I actually don't think Roby's was targeting, I think they misapplied the rule because I thought he hit the guys chest with his shoulder. Just because the refs get it wrong sometimes doesn't mean it is a bad rule. Someone clearly going after someone's head should be removed from the game though. This one I thought probably deserved it especially since it was pretty clear Kiel had given himself up by starting to slide and was really unprotected as a result.
Disagree, if someone goes after someone's head intentionally they should be kicked out because there is no reason for that other than to injure someone. It isn't even a great way to guarantee tackling someone.
After the BYU nut-punch this year, looks like BYU could have been a major instigator in that fight though.
It sounds like it is a university issue with Webb and not a football issue. That's probably why he doesn't know as much. Could be academic or eligibility issue or something like that. Regardless since it is still under investigation there isn't much to share other than he won't play this week. No need putting a player on blast until the university has done its job, especially if it isn't a criminal issue.
A friend grew a bunch of hops this summer and fall. Way more than he could brew. So I may be learning shortly as he is trying to give them out so they don't go bad.
It is also B1G and NCAA policy (similar to pro leagues and Denver/Seattle teams). OSU doesn't have much control over those policies. Long way to go before people consider weed at the same level as alcohol or tobacco in terms of legality.
We struggled with dumb turnovers all last year too. Even through the playoffs we had too many turnovers. The penalties seem to be a new thing this year. I don't think we had a single holding call all last year by the OL. Now we have those along with some other dumb ones. Those negative plays just kill drives. I am surprised at the lack of explosive plays since VT. You'd think our players would break one off accidentally given their speed and athleticism. But barely anything over 15-20 yards the last two weeks.
Bigger issue seems to be blocking on the edge and down field. So Elliot's runs that used to go for 10+ are now 5-7 at best.
Here's a video of it:
Can't embed because the NFL hates fun.
Yep, very much this he might be starting on any other team, but they have an embarrassment of riches at CB. Also you know what's amazing, Talib and Harris both went to the University of Kansas.
Roby isn't a starting CB, he is the nickel so he likely wasn't on the field all the time.
um this was 15 years ago, it is today's world. this wasn't exactly the 1930s.
This was hilarious. It also reminded me of the bad British commentary videos:
We make fun of their favorite sports, but when you look at it through their perspective, our sports are equally crazy.
Also like the cricket/baseball version:
The Ohio Spin University!
Probably smart it has worked for a couple of our players in the past (including Mike Thomas), so it may work for him too.
But they did what they were supposed to do against a bad team. In the past the D has been shaky and turned a blow out into a close one. Not today.
Conley has impressed a ton. Other than a pretty weak PI call last week, he has been pretty dominant so far.
The second "dropped" one would have been an amazing catch. So hard to adjust like that on defense because you are playing the player and don't know where the ball is going to be until the last second. No harm in that one. The other drop though probably should have been an INT.
DT has been the one spot Urban hasn't recruited too well. He would be a great way to fix that hole.
