Thank God autocorrect wasn't around then...
Yup. Believed it then, believe it now.
Don't forget Joe Thomas Barrett IV!
Yes, and Jason Garrett is absolutely right. I tweaked my hamstring running track in college, ignored it and then felt the dreaded pop warming up for a race. Came back too soon (twice, actually) and it ended my season. It starts feeling better and as soon as you try to go 100%, it tweaks or pops again, and you're right back to square one. Incredibly frustrating, as is hearing people dismiss the injury as "oh, just a hammy." No. No such thing, anyone who says that has never had that experience. That injury will F up your universe if you're not careful.
I've been fortunate that it's the worst injury I ever sustained in my career, but it was hell trying to get healthy and strong again. Get well, Zeke!
I'm all for bringing back the Hive. Quick Cals are ok, but the Hive was awesome, and they still do it at basketball games.
Also, I'm sorry, unpopular opinion alert, but we should really stop calling "Jump Around" at Wisconsin "one of the great college football traditions." OSUMB's ramp entrance, Script Ohio, Chief Osceola and the flaming spear, Howard's Rock at Clemson, THOSE are great CFB traditions. Jump Around is ok, I suppose, but I just don't get why everyone loses their shit over it.
I agree on this one, though there would have been a natty to vacate for that year if they don't lose vs. WI.
Be right back, going to go repeatedly hit myself in the hand with a tack hammer for about an hour.
Maybe I'm overly optimistic (or I just want the Cavs to win so damn bad...and I hate the Warriors), but I honestly think the Warriors did not expose anything fatal for the Cavs last night. Everything that went wrong last night is fixable.
Also, if the option is Shaun Livingston having the game of his life to beat us instead of Curry and Klay going off, I'll take it. GS was willing to let Bron, Kyrie, and KLove get theirs and shut down everyone else, and it worked. More contributions from JR, Channing Frye, Shump, and Delly are needed, but it's doable. Go Cavs! #ALLin216
I think '05 or '10 were Tressel's best teams, and I agree, the '14 beats either.
Sounds like a no-brainer!
I would watch every episode of American History with Mickey Marotti and Kerry Coombs
I'd be surprised if Ohio State wins 9 games too. Pretty sure not for the same reasons.
Happy Friday, all!
Or "Pobody's Nerfect."
Before Chris Jent's return, my thought for the next basketball coach was Keith Dambrot, for his success and of course, his ties to LeBron James. Now, who knows. I'd be good either way.
Thanks for the mailbag, great work as always!
I remember leaving the Shoe and stopping in Little Bar (well, outside the door...place was jam-packed) and going nuts when that field goal was blocked. I think of it every time I pass that place! Happy Friday, everyone!
Damn, very unfortunate news. Get well soon, Stephen!
The ring and that jersey - originally given to his coach - were eventually both culled and listed among Tressel’s NCAA transgressions. Andy Geiger gave Tressel a letter of reprimand for the gestures that remained in his personnel file until his termination. Ten years after Dru’s death the ring Tressel gave his mother and the jersey he never wore were used as props during the Tatgate scandal without any context to demonstrate how Tressel brazenly violated NCAA rules.
Unbelievable. Well, actually, no it isn't.
I didn't know this story, or remember Dru's name. I was a year ahead of him in school, can't believe I was so unaware. Thanks for the story, Jeremy and Ramzy. RIP Dru.
Me too. I will burn every orange and brown piece of clothing I have if the Browns pick that jackass.
Bikeditos...that's gold Jerry, gold.
Also, fairly certain Lee wouldn't have ever seen the field if he were afraid of contact. Bit of a prerequisite for the position of linebacker.
"And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand." To Will. RIP, big man.
I'm late to the party here, but I say get the kid a whaaburger and some french cries.
Two things I've been taught: Don't ask questions you don't want answers to, and don't ask questions you already know the answers to.
Collections is the worst. I did it for about two years out of college, learned lots of life lessons though! No better place to see the absolute worst in people.
"Stick-to-itiveness" is one of the dumbest, laziest phrases out there. Try some vocabulary, like "persistence" or "tenacity." That ranks up there with "guess-timate" for me. You all can kindly get off my lawn now.
I will cherish this moment forever.
