I doubt Urban slept but he did sweep through opponents to NC with 1 top 50 pick in draft. (Wink)
It is so ridiculous that people blame Urban for Hernandez. It's against all logic and reason. Think about this... What if a player committed a crime playing college ball, and it doesn't matter what crime, and then how about we blame his high school coach for it. People don't know how to think anymore.
I thought Eli Apple was not continuing his football career because of concussions?
Well given that financial planning is my job, I think I have some basis for saying it would a terrible decision, at least financially.
I think this is precisely your problem. You are just seeing the financial reasons and dollar signs in this equation. I'm not saying this isn't important but leaving college to play in the NBA deals with more than just money matters. The college game is a completely different animal than the NBA and maybe, just maybe, Russell wants to have another year of the college experience. Once you leave college, you are done for life in that arena and the rest of your playing days is in the NBA. Ya think maybe he might want another year in the college experience and all the positives that come with it? I don't know, but it's his decision and to say it would be dumb not to go to the NBA is quite presumptuous.
Ohhh ok. got it. Thanks. makes sense.
You may be right about Buck telling off Wexner(which I happen to like) but who had more to gain by it being built?
However, nice story about Buck. Thanks for that.
On "Buck" being mayor when the 670 project got off the ground, I think the real force behind it was Wexner, not Buck. Oh and living in Italy has it's advantages to making the first comment on the early Skullys. Thanks DJ. (What do you do DJ? Write the Skully the night before, set your alarm for 4:30am and post it?)
ESecPN is still ESecPN. The disrespect of the B1G and the over valued SEC has not gone any where. Wish I could boycott ESecPN.
Alford also has the title of "assistant head coach" which Drayton never had. This certainly will up Alford's salary numbers.
Uhhhh, UFM is Catholic....
Sorry TraSmith4, I posted this because yours hadn't appeared on my screen yet.
I'd call it "The Drive" to perfection. 15-0 which no team in college D-1 football has ever done in one season.
When is the celebration by the way?
Did you put $2000 on the Bucks when the odds were at 40:1? Kudos to you "Urban Tressel".
Playing fast and being fast are two different things. Of course the Buckeyes have the speed to keep up with anyone in the country(being fast), but do they have the stamina to play fast as the Ducks offense if the Ducks snap the ball every 16 seconds(playing fast). As it's been stated several times before, if the Buckeyes can stop them quickly by getting some 3 and outs, then that slows down the Ducks offense and they will not snap the ball every 16 seconds. This will allow the defense to get a few extra seconds between snaps which will give the Buckeyes better odds to win the game. GO BUCKS!!!!
I agree. I think the B1G championship trophy is leagues ahead of this one.
I can't get enough of these hype videos!!!! Come on Monday!!!! Get here already!!!
I have issues with apple tv too with espn so I use the computer or ipad which doesn't freeze. The problem is the espn feed failed during the B1G championship game so I'm leery. I have a back up internet stream feed on atdee.net.
I don't have to see it this way to live with it. Tress is the one living with it. If it helps you to live with the situation by judging Tress, then by all means, go ahead.
It's really sad how Tress gets so much negative press because of tatgate. What people don't know is that Tress was protecting his players from bodily harm and danger. If he reported those infractions, it would have made public their names and some shady characters who were part of the FBI investigation could retaliate. He put his players well being ahead of some NCAA by-laws just as a father would for his sons. He said himself that if he had to do it over again, he wouldn't change a thing. That means his conscience is clear and in the eyes of God he did the right thing. If you don't like it, then that's your problem, take care of your own conscience because when you point the finger at others, you have 3 others pointing right back at you.
JT is a great man and has done so much for others, not just on the football field. God bless you Jim Tressel.
Send that quote to Meyer for the Penn St. game coming up later this year.
The interception was not Cardale's fault. Urb's said as much.
I believe that the B1G teams in the bowls were ranked lower in every game(Sagrin rankings - nothing to do with Vegas). So going 5-5 isn't bad at all.
I think it's pretty good too. It's a solid and funny parody.
Didn't you get the memo? After E. Bruce won the COY in 1979, they changed the rules for those eligible for the award. The main change was that no Ohio State coach will be eligible in the future due to it being a dominant program in that every year, OSU should be playing for a national championship. So this is why no OSU coach has ever won it since and will never win it again. So don't worry about it. It doesn't concern us any longer.
