There is always room on the field for an elite, play making runner (4.3). It may not be QB, but there is a place for him...on the Buckeyes and in the NFL. He wont be sitting, that is for sure.
I have serious doubts that Braxton's shoulder will be fully healed to be an elite passer by next Aug.1. He was not really close this past Aug.1 and he is adding just a few more months more rehab this time around. If he were a major league pitcher, and had this kind of injury , we probably couldn't expect him back on a mound for a couple years and a stint in the minors just to get his confidence back to let lose with a fast ball. He may never be able to confidently fire passes in a game situation again, so let's let Braxton rehab and hope for the best for him.
Yes, from the outside it is easy to see that T.Pryor should have made the switch to receiver-TE to have a much longer/profitable NFL career and it seemed Braxton was close to the same mold but let's not bury his QB career till his rehab is complete.
Thank you! I checked in with them just now. You guys are awesome!
I am going to be in Charleston, SC on Sat. Where is a good place to watch the game there? I have never been there before and don't know where to settle in to watch the game. Help.
That was fantastic reading. Hilarious.
I agree with him. I still have lots of love for Herbie.
I am still of the mindset that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Any one who wants to argue that they hate the wolverines more than us is not all bad. Lets just beat them this week and all will be right in the world again.
The Nebraska kicker did the same thing 2 years ago. It was Nebraska's first time in the Shoe just like Rutgers today. We yelled the same thing to the Nebraska kicker. Afterward, when they were interviewed they said they didn't understand what the band was doing. It was probably the same thing with the Rutgers group. I don't think either school will make that mistake again. Welcome to the Shoe newbies.
Taking over %ichigan stadium and doing a strong O HI O around their stadium 2 out of the last 3 times up there is pretty awesome. Their post game commentators guessed there were 30K+ Buckeye fans there. Pure Awesome!
What is the recovery time for such a procedure? Get well soon Mr. Dixon.
That was some fun reading. Thanks.
I used to get mad when seeing a MI shirt or bumper sticker. I now laugh and shake my head at the hilarity of someone advertising their like of such a sucky team.
Happy birthday 11 Warriors! You guys make up about 80% of my computer time a day. No joke.
1) Second deck on south stands. Of course the scoreboard would have to be moved (no small feat).
2) more rows added to C deck (20-30?) even around the north end zone. Incorporating the concrete risers where the troopers stand would be tricky but that is what engineers are for.
3) Add a surround cover over 1/2 of C Deck.This would accent the Horse Shoe look, keep some weather off of fans, keep a lot of sound in the stadium(crazy loud). Picture something between Cowboy Stadium and Unv, of Washington.
Note; The field can not be lowered anymore as earlier mentioned and grass can not be sustained there any more because of the "tub effect" now in play as also mentioned. Also, don't we want a fast track because the Buckeyes are going to faster than 99.9% of the teams they play.
Until they prove otherwise I think the LB chore has a lot to prove. That said, I think the LBs are in good position to have a strong season. The talent has been stacked up there recently, and though young, I expect a big jump in play making. They have one of the best DLs in OSU history in front of them. This will help a great deal in allowing the LBs to flow fast and not have to over think there responsibilities. This in turn makes the DBs look better as well as the changes Ash is making.
I expect the O to score at about the same 42 ppg that they did last year. Couple that with an improved D and that makes for a dominating team. That is the Buckeyes that we have come to love....Dominating!
Went to the game yesterday and had a great time despite the monsoon. My wishes for the Reds; 1) no more JJ Hoover
2) more games against the Cubs
3) trade for a .300 hitting SS. if there is one in the majors who doesn't play for Colorado
4) keep Reds starters off the DL
Master program builder. He took a program that was probably in the #25 to #30 range in yearly national rankings if you took the end of year rankings over the course of the 30 years prior to Matta arriving and moved it into the #5 to #10 range over the past 10 years (accumulative). If you are 40 years or older, you fully appreciate the change Matta has made in the program and national perception of Buckeye basketball because you are old enough to remember the Pre- Matta years.
He will eventually win a national championship at OSU. And seeing the next two recruiting classes, it could be sooner than later.
I love that the Buckeyes are winning so much that Buckeye Nation is growing to the point that game days have become an event worth celebrating. The only thing we are missing is some great looking ladies getting with the spirit and coming up with some game day Buckeye alter egos....maybe Buck I Chick, Charlotte and Grey, Ect....
It looks to me that Matta has tweaked his recruiting to not just chasing after 4-5* players but 4-5* players who are winners and have a good motor. You can't teach "heart" and I think Matta got burnt there a few times in the past thinking he could will a killer instinct into a kid with good skills.
He got his kind of player in Daniel... skills,length,good citizen,winner and a MOTOR. This kid is going to have a really good career at OSU. Glad to also hear he has family backing him. That typically means he is going to be a cut above maturity wise also. BOOM, for the good guys!!!
I am glad Sparty has risen up. Their fans are a lot easier to stomach than UM's and their fans see through the wolverine crap like we do and they enjoy dog piling UM like we do. Dantonio is classy (second best coach in B1G) and he owns *ichigan on and off the field.
I see MSU as a cousin program to OSU. We love and hate a lot of the same things. As long as we are in first place and they are in second, I am fine with MSU.
Anyone who has questioned if Matta had lost his edge in recruiting can just "kiss my grits". Flat out getting it done!
I laugh every time I see those highlights. It's the joke that never gets old.
The *ichigan fans I know still die a thousand deaths when that game is brought up. My family that live in SEC country, and are not even Buckeye fans still scoff when *ichigan is brought up and then Appy State is brought up immediately.
That was awesome. Their program is a wreck.
Browns = one step forward and three steps back. I think it is impossible for them to be a winner. That would throw the universe on its ear. Losing and the Browns go hand in hand. It's the natural law of our universe.
CB is areal need and the Bengals should be in the right place to pick up an excellent one with their first pick. My crazy side says trade up to get Evans at WR and make the offense elite. I am guessing that would require about 3 high draft picks in exchange.
Matta is on a mission since the end of the season. Great get!!!
