Thanks for everything Birm. Best of luck in your future endeavors. You will be missed more than you know.
Rory who? Jordan Spieth PGA Tour 2017.
Spot on about the lack of endorsements. Sid and Ovi are only making $10-12 Million annually from their contracts too. Nick Foles, Denard Span, Coco Crisp, and Andrew Bogut all get similar paychecks from their respective teams. Talk about criminal!
That entire passage is contained in THIS article.
"Prince, at 6-foot-7 and 305 pounds, might be the more prototypical left tackle, but the staff likes the experience of Jones on that side, even though the junior from Chicago may fit the mold more of a right tackle at 6-5 and 310 pounds. "
2 inches and 5 lbs really means the difference between LT and RT? I figured it would be wingspan or first-step quickness that would be deciding factors...
Paulus was a great PG before he played QB at Syracuse. I'd take a good leader and facilitator of the offense at that position any day.
Agree. Is any of this on Paulus? I see him drawing up plays during timeouts pretty routinely.
Hate to see Hazell go out like this. I'm pretty sure he was being groomed to be the heir to Tressel had The Vest gone out on his own terms.
A DV for Ron Paul? Do you hate liberty?
I'm sorry, but I just can't sit back and let you insult the other sports but referring to WWE is "the most physical sport in the world." I'm not saying those guys/gals aren't great athletes, but they slap each other and take dives. UFC is exponentially more demanding since, you know, they are actually fighting one another and the outcome is not predetermined. WWE < UFC until someone bleeds without being sliced by a razor that the referee supplied or is KO'd by a real punch.
Can't stand him! Really missed the Team Stream broadcast tonight... Was painfully close to watching the game on mute. That little crescendo he does when he gets excited, like he is HAVINGASEIZURE, annoys the piss out of me. I'll go against the grain and take Dicky V all day.
Is Stephen Collier getting any reps in practice? I understand he is buried on the depth chart, but I never see him mentioned in any of the write-ups.
1. Agree to disagree. If OSU can beat a team like Bama in football, a sport in which they devote ALL of their time and money, while still being ranked in basketball and competitive in several other sports, that proves someone is doing something right. Those teams you mentioned...better? Yes. Competing for championships? Absolutely not.
2.I see your point, but are you saying guys like Craft, who was probably not even ranked by the services and had a poor shot, wan't a good player?He didn't develop at all in his 4yrs? It isn't all about rankings and recruiting stars. "Clank" Thompson was probably rated pretty high, but he is useless unless he is throwing down a poster dunk. Players have regressed, especially this year's senior class. I don't think that all falls on the shoulders of the HC. Guys have to put in the work.
3.Bo Ryan has been coaching since 1972, he should have it figured out by now. I'm not saying Thad is irreplaceable, or even the best coach in the Big10, but there are far too many knee-jerk reactions after a bad loss or season. Wanting him to resign is just ludicrous to me...Thad has won or reached the final of the Big10 tourney 7/10 years. Not too shabby.
Thad has put together some questionable classes, but the guy can recruit. OSU is one of the few schools that competes every year in basketball AND football. Kansas, Duke, UK, UNC, Virginia, Gonzaga, Villanova, Butler, Maryland, Iowa St., Northern Iowa - see much out of those football programs lately? (if the school even has a team!) How about Alabama's basketball team? It would betough winning recruits from schools that consistently put the majority of their resources and their effort into a single sport. Deshaun Thomas, Russell, QRoss, the entire 2015 class; all top-tier recruits that other schools wanted. Maybe not all were not elite, dominant college players but that's how recruiting works. Hate to keep picking on Amir, but he had a Duke offer... Happy Thad won that battle? How many coaches with Thad's pedigree are out there to replace him?
Michael Sam only managed 17 reps. And people actually thought he was cut based on his sexual orientation...Dude was weak!
The Earth's rotation was sped up and the day was shortened; it says nothing about the rate of time itself quickening. Michio Kaku is a genius- he is not wrong. Atomic clocks "keep time" to an astounding accuracy of one second per one million years.
Another Coach Coombs plug from a recruit/high school coach. Say what you will about the man, I for one am glad he is on our side.
Lookalike Buck-I-Guys would be funny. As much as I would not prefer to see multiple versions of that clown, I bet he would get PISSED when he saw the impostors :)
Can't agree more. Just watched his junior film and can now plainly see why offer lists > recruiting site position rankings. 9 SEC offers plus Texas, ND, and The U among his other suitors but he is somehow rated between 76th-82nd in the state of Florida.
Agreed. Glad anytime the Bucks get a player from the Peach State. Cam Heyward, Roby, Vonn Bell, and Kwon... Keep em' coming!
Carlton Davis has a criminally low ranking as well. He's got a great mix of coverage/ball skills and run support/tackling ability.
Norwood plays for Valdosta.
Different teams for sure, but Bama lost in the Sugar last year. They were a 17 point favorite and lost by 14 to Oklahoma, FWIW.
I was about to call Taylor Decker "JB" with those false starts. Still trying to figure out how the most experienced member of the unit takes the most penalties...
Both lines played out of their minds last night. I wonder how much Wisky losing their center early in the 1st impacted their line calls.
