Thought this too...taking it even a step further with the Florida/'06 comparisons, JT could be like Leak and Cardale Jones could be the Tebow-esque battering ram on the goal line/short yardage situations. Even just the threat of him being used like that is another thing to give defenses pause.
I think you missed the point...
"Well, I don't want to just have an expensive football party!" <---THIS. Why don't more brides realize this?
My wife is not a huge football fan, but she is a Buckeye fan and knows how sacred these days are. We were married August 2, 2008, knowing full well we'd avoid football season. Even not being from Columbus, she knew how many of our friends and family members wouldn't show up for a wedding that clashed with a Buckeye game.
We've missed several fall weddings over the past few years, and feel zero guilt about it. Knew she was a keeper before that, but that just solidified it!
Thanks for uploading this, first Buckeye game I ever attended with my dad!
My understanding is that they will also take into account the number of student-athletes on a team to determine which division a team should be a part of, which is good for sports like track. As a track coach at a very small school that got bumped up to Division II this year because of a large freshman class, it makes it very difficult for us to compete (read: impossible) for a championship. My team has 24 athletes, boys and girls combined. We're competing against teams with 50 boys and girls each, so no matter how well our athletes do in their respective races and relays, we're still pretty much screwed if we're trying to win a district title. We have enough trouble competing in Division III against the likes of Columbus Academy, and now we're up with a good bit of the City League, like Beechcroft, Linden McKinley, and East. Academy's team is bigger than most D-II teams (hell, some D-I too) we've seen this year, yet they're in D-III?
Sorry, long-winded way to say that I'm in support of this measure.
Hilarious, these people think they're coming up with original material about Crafty's shooting...hasn't changed in 4 years! And VitaminB, love to see ANY of the people talking big on Twitter try to bring the ball up against him!
The problem with Arsenal is they always try and walk it in.
I'd upvote the IT Crowd reference if I could!
Every time I read "booger sugar," I laugh out loud then have to explain it to everyone. Good times.
"How do these people operate a blender, let alone a 2,500 lbs. vehicle capable of instantly dealing death to other human beings?"
Oh, if I had a nickel for every time I've uttered some variation of this phrase...DJ, you are spot on with everything in this analysis. Well done.
That said, you want a REALLY bad city to drive in? Pittsburgh. Not only are the drivers there complete morons, but they decided to give a 3 year old a crayon, have them scribble on a piece of paper, and then lay their streets out like that. It's awful.
It's great to be a Buckeye!
"if not for No. 6/8 Michigan getting a case of the yips from the charity stripe in the final seconds on Sunday."
You spelled "screwed the pooch" wrong.
"Just as long as they don't do whatever they did in the second half of last year's Final Four matchup."
Go 8/33 shooting? Yeah, that'd probably be a good place to start.
I see what you did there...
Very well said. I don't root for the B1G for the exact reasons outlined above. Does it REALLY make Ohio State look better if the conference is strong? Not when the conference is a national punchline like it is now. Coach Meyer realizes this and I'm pretty sure he would agree with your assessment, as well. Plus, do you honestly think the rest of the B1G goes out of their way to root for Ohio State? Hell no, they don't.
Not to mention, rooting for our conference makes us sound like SEC mouthbreathers.
"Then, Brenda cries like a woman about Urban's recruiting, only to be told to shut up by Berry."
I wonder if this didn't have something to do with Bert's decision to jump ship. I'm surrounded by teachers in my family, all of whom basically said this about it: A good principal backs and doesn't embarrass their teachers in front of the parents, but then rips them in private afterwards, if need be. Barry embarrassed Bert in front of the parents.
While I completely agreed with Barry telling Bert to quit being a whiny b***h, this was a good point. If you don't have the public support of those above you, it makes it tough to stick around. Just my two cents.
Um, guys? Duke is a very good team. I'm kind of surprised to see the lack of credit being given to them. Granted, yes, there were plenty of opportunities for Ohio State to win the game, Craft played poorly, DT didn't shoot all that well, etc., etc. Duke made adjustments, got more aggressive, and got the Crazies back into it in the second half. The Buckeyes really hung in there until the very end, which showed a lot of toughness that a lot of teams lose in that environment. I was worried about OSU stopping Mason Plumlee, and interested to see how Duke would match up with Deshaun Thomas, and was impressed with the latter.
Some of you are talking like the Buckeyes lost a winnable game at Illinois, not Duke. I thought this was a terrific game between two of the best in college basketball. Officiating was iffy both ways at times, and didn't affect the outcome, I don't think. Ohio State will be fine, they'll learn from this and be better going forward.
Yes, it moved. It's 220 on DirecTV.
Funny, they used to have the same coach from 1904 too!
Definitely preparing him for all he'll be at the next level...Cribbs/Randle El. And I can't wait to see our piranhas snap him in half, either!
