@Chad That would be Mike Wilson. 247's MSU reporter has said it's a rule for Dantonio and staff. It's not exactly an uncommon rule. Coaching staffs just want to be kept in the loop that a kid is keeping options open (well within their rights) so they aren't blindsided by a late flip. They need to have a contingency plan.
@BuckWylde First, Dantonio can't comment on Cupp in public until after he has signed a LOI. That's like...Recruiting 101. Secondly, did you require a quote from Urban when other fanbases accused us of oversigning when Jamel Dean was forced out medically? No? You trusted the coaches/staff? Funny that.
An awful lot of cynicism about one of the best coaches we've ever had at Ohio State. Dino has never given me reason to believe he's anything but a stand-up guy.
Your remarks sound a lot like the "oversigning" barbs thrown at Urban by other fanbases. So I say that is a bunch of bull.
Dantonio was fine with him going. He just wanted Cupp to be up front with him about it and let him know he was going and visiting others. Cupp tried sneak in and get an OSU offer behind their backs and it bit him in the ass.
He didn't pull the offer because he visited. He pulled it because Cupp wasn't up front with him about visiting. MSU shouldn't have to hear from a secondary source that a commit is sniffing around and trying to get other offers on the down low. No issue with Dino's actions.
Wisconsin fan I was talking to said it wasn't a grades issue, but instead it was a credit transfer issue. So it was like he took a class that wasn't an equivalent of an entry requirement in the eyes of UW. If so, that is shitty of them. You've got to do your homework on these kids to see if they meet your standards. He's left without a chair and the music just quit playing. I feel bad for him.
I'm sure all 14 of their fans are full of nervous anticipation.
Bruh, they're not the named the Rebels because they like Star Wars.
I'd rather go through Cersei's walk of shame than watch another series of Bollmanball.
1 - Ohio State (13-0)
2 - TCU (12-0)
3 - Georgia (12-1)
4 - Arizona State (12-1)
Just missed: Michigan State (11-1), Clemson (12-1)
Ohio State over Arizona State, Georgia over TCU
Ohio State over Georgia, 41-31
I think this GIF's commentary from SB Nation is really underappreciated. Give it a read. It's the punter's internal monologue/freakout and it's at #1 on the list.
You can't be the right coach at Nebraska if you hate the recruiting aspect of a head coaching position. Bo is a good coach, but Nebraska needs an ace recruiter. They can go hundreds of miles in any direction before coming across more than a couple of blue chip players.
A "tremendous machine" if there ever was one.
This doesn't seem like a popular opinion in my experience, but I like jelly donuts. I also like lemon-flavored Starburst. So I usually get to eat as many of these unpopular treats as I want because nobody else touches them.
The biggest rule change I want is to go to the soft reset shot clock where on offensive rebounds, the shot clock only resets to whatever the shot clock is minus 10 seconds. If college goes to a 30 second shot clock, on an offensive rebound it would only reset to 20 seconds.
If you think about it, those 10 seconds are supposed to be there to get the ball up the floor during a change of possession. If you are retaining possession on your own end of the court, why are you entitled to that additional 10 seconds? That would eliminate all of those times where on an offensive rebound, they kick it out to midcourt and hold it for 10 seconds. Get rid of the coach micromanaging every possession.
B1G is still working on a decade-old T1 deal (all other conferences are working off of recent deals). After they sign their new T1 deal in 2017, they will match or slightly exceed the SEC IMO. Regardless, it's going to be the B1G and SEC way ahead of the Pac12, Big 12, and ACC.
My primary objection was that a network billing itself as "American MOVIE Classics" was producing serial dramas.
Of all the reasons to not watch a show, I don't think I've ever come across a more inconsequential reason.
If Ohio State can't win it, I'd rather see another B1G team win it. Perceived conference strength and strength of schedule are realities that we live with.
Why not just say thanks instead of being a total frat bro for 5 seconds?
I just watched The Red Road and the first season was really good. Only 6 episodes too. Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones) has a great role as the outlaw. Good acting and writing all around.
If you're into BBC shows, Luther and Broadchurch (only watched season 1) are both great.
Those were just a few that I hadn't seen mentioned. Aside from them, I'll definitely vouch for Breaking Bad, Justified, and Sons of Anarchy. If you want comedy, go for Archer, Bob's Burgers, or Party Down.
Never get down in the mud and wrestle with a pig. You'll both end up dirty and the pig likes it.
I'm gonna make some lemonade here and rename the Dreariness Index to the "Water Security Index".
