Because it was how many times he had been hit by an OSU player at the time.  He then realized by trying to match the number to the hits was a bad idea, possibly concussed from all the hits.  I mean you can't have 3 numbers on a jersey after all...

That dog believes in never leaving 1 stone unturned or a plate left untouched or toy not played with....

Lots of smoke on twitter and the ozone that Noah Spence may be available for last 3 games with the thought that those games are the Big 10 championship game and playoff games.

I own an xbox1 and was originally going to get a ps4 until I looked at the exclusive games coming out for each device and switched.  I did not care about DRM or anything else that people were saying was a negative for xone.  It is all about preference.

PS4 is outselling the XBOX1 almost 2-1 but that doesn't necessarily translate to a better console experience.  DRM along with other bad press (it is microsoft btw) along with a higher selling point put PS4 way out in front.

Games!  look at which games are console exclusives, most games can be had on both consoles, but look at exclusives and which games seem more appealing to you.  I know this, I would own both but for me it comes down to time.  I do not have enough time to try to play the games that have came out in the last 2 months.  Diablo (Both consoles), Forza Horizon 2 (Xbox only), Sunset OVerdrive (xbox only), and now the Halo MCC, which is 4 games remastered in 1.  Console exclusives is what ultimately sold me.

Price!  TBH, xbox one bundles without connect and with can be had for $323 (Assasins creed bundle with 2 games no kinect), sunset overdrive bundle (includes kinect) and COD AW Bundles (also with kinect) can both be had for 449.  The price is now about the same if not in favor of xbox one with the bundle.

Conrollers!  Preference but was always partial the the PS controllers but the xone is very good I just prefer the ps layouts.

Support!  Xone has had updates almost every month since it's release, you can easily find these online.  The interface and experience has improved allot since launch.  Microsoft does software so this is no contest IMO.

Space!  You can switch out ps4 HD and add another.  Xone you can plug in an external USB and add to your existing.  I purchased a 7200 rpm 1.5 tb device and it took me 30 minutes to xfer all of my games over to that and they load a tad faster.  So for $80 I quadrupled my space.

Indies!  PS4 has the market on these by a long margin but Xbox is making up ground.

Interface! Personal preference.  Really no exp on ps4 but I enjoy the x1 interface.

It comes down to which games is only available on each console and price, which price now is about the same.   If there are games on each one you want then start looking at other options.  Xone has probably the most options outside of gaming with its media experience.  Now that plex is coming to xone it may add a whole new level of media availability to it.

Beth Moans is to blame...  Least the last name is correct, 50% of the time she is right 50% of the time...

I think JT's progress has Meyer wanting younger players to get more reps than ever before, which is what we have been hearing/seeing allot this year.  He has seen JT progress to the point where he is now and sees how much live reps matter to development.

Why is it when I read the part of Wunderboy I thought about making it in to a DirecTV commercial...

When there is nothing on TV, you drink with Buddies.

Then you and your buddies decide to go to the OSU Game.

Before the game you and your buddies make a bet for you to run on the field during the game.

When you run onto the field you get slammed by an OSU linebacker alum, aka Strength Staff, you get embarrassed and loose your scholarship

Don't run on the field and get slammed by an EX OSU Linebacker on national television and loose your Scholarship, order DirectTV.

Glad our D-line got out of there with no injuries, or any that I have heard of.

Comment 28 Aug 2014

I am now on board with the gray area on the depth chart after reading this.  Young players on the big stage for the first time you never know how they are going to do.  If they have someone that is even with them for playing time for 1 spot, there is a higher probability for complete focus, intensity but also pressure.  Nothing like putting the youngins in the pressure cooker early to get them ready for some Nat'l Championship runs.

I think I read this about 3x and laughed every time.  DJ I do not think you get enough credit for your self deprecating rants...

"On Sunday, as I'm sitting shirtless (and soulless) in my kitchen eating peppered scrambled eggs off a napkin, I'm cancelling CBS Sports. It won't take a long time either because I don't take guff on the phone, especially from the payroll of Lucifer."

AWESOME!!!

Anyone else getting a Belichick feel out of Meyer?  The depth chart, injuries and throwing out things he is going to use or they have been working on (Diamond formation) and then we never see it, just to get the other coaches to try to think of something other than their own game plan.  I like the mental warfare but as a fan I feel torn in a million different directions...

Was it hand A or B that had it, just trying to figure out which hand would be considered his 2nd...

I vote Keep Wiggins.

Love will be expensive and strap us cap wise for the next 3-4 years where Wiggins is CHEAP.  Love also has missed 20+ games 3 of his years in the league and only played 18 games one year.  He is a defensive liability, him and Kyrie on the court will drive James nuts trying to defend...

While Wiggins is young, he has an NBA pedigree and his dad taught him DEFENSE first.  With Lebron and Kyrie there is no need for him to be an offensive phenom.  He plays good defense, has sick athletic ability, can get to the rim and the line, as proof from last nights game. 

Love is a proven top 10 player, but there are also negatives he has proved, like his ability to play defense and his contract price.  If they do trade Wiggins for Love, this has GM Lebron all over it IMO.

That is what I thought as well, they REALLY like his physical and aggressive play at safety.  Big hitter for his size.
