I hate to say it but it's coincided with the site's growth in popularity.  I have nothing against new members, but as the population grows, so does the amount of knuckleheads in said population. Sadly it seems to come with the territory.  What if there were separate HS limits for UV/DV? Making the DV limit higher might help.

Comment 16 Sep 2014

It seems like lately there's one person who cruises through posts and DV's everyone.  Too many people here can't disagree/debate without using the DV as a crutch.

Comment 16 Sep 2014

Braxton's OC that year was Jim Bollman, and Nick Siciliano was his QB coach.  And he was a true freshman (yeah, everyone forgets JT has had a full year in the program with a competent OC/QB coach and a team that wasn't decimated by tatgate).  Yes JT was also forced onto the field by unfortunate circumstances but you can't seriously compare the two. Braxton didn't even have the benefit of a couple months to practice as the starter that JT had while Brax was out/then reinjured, he just got thrown to the wolves once it became clear that Bauserman was, well, Bauserman to the coaching staff. He made obvious strides each of his next two seasons and in all likelihood would have continued that progression this year and will next year if he comes back 100%.

Bexley has some great za.  I like Joe's and Bexley Pizza Plus, but Rubino's is my favorite pizza.  That place is the epitome of a greasy little pizza joint and I love it.

Comment 16 Sep 2014

Your comment literally makes no sense.  I never said anything about a freshman WR and by definition of the word "freshman" he couldn't have been throwing to one JT has this year.  But, just so you know, Mike Thomas and Jalin Marshall both redshirted, Corey Smith came in this year, Devin Smith played a lot more and basically disappeared most of the time (he did not play much against Va Tech). Urban had called the receiver group a "clown show." Hell, Thomas got in hot water last year after the bowl game for pointing out how awful the receivers were. And what about my even more valid points about having a killer run game so he didn't need to throw that often? 

Comment 16 Sep 2014

Braxton also put up 100 yds a game on the ground, had a poor wide receivers group (which urban harped on for a while) and had a great running game to rely on, so he didn't have to pass as much.  However with the fresh line and rb's this year he probably would have been slingin' it more as well. 

Comment 13 Sep 2014

ECU played pretty well against SCAR last week, they're a decent team.  And we played pretty poorly last week, and Va Tech is coming off a dramatic high.  It's embarrassing, but not shocking.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

Just because it's a football school doesn't mean we don't have an elite basketball program.  Thad built up a level of expectation and his in-state recruiting this cycle hasn't lived up to it. It's pretty disappointing to lose out on the top 3 in-state players if you're a top-tier program.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Also, not to beat the hell out of a dead horse, but the coverage scheme last year was atrocious as well and certainly didn't do his immense physical ability any favors.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I don't get this, they knew he hit her, otherwise he wouldn't have been suspended/arrested in the first place.  This video changes nothing.  It's always been known that he knocked her out and then dragged her.  This is simply 100% transparent ass-covering.  Now that everyone can see (and not just imagine) how much of a POS he is (look, people make mistakes but this sort of violence is inexcusable, one time or ten) the Ravens and the NFL can no longer cower behind their own pathetic attempts to basically cover this up.  I wish there could be a penalty for the NFL in all of this because they became complicit from the moment they put Rice and Palmer in the same room together. How he's not in jail mystifies me.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Here here! Honestly one of my first thoughts after the game was we can put the Braxton/Barrett stuff to bed once and for all.  Hopefully people will recognize this team for what it is and figure out a way to root for them, because that's what I'll be doing.  As much as I like to think I've been above all the madness, games haven't been as "fun" for me to watch as they used to be.  I was more worried about the team losing, and now I'm trying to get back to just enjoying football.  It'll be gone is just a couple short months and so will a bunch of seniors who worked their asses off for my team.  They deserve our support.  Go Bucks!

Comment 08 Sep 2014

My last post in this thread, I've already responded too many times.  I have two problems with this:

1. He's being a jerk about it, not actually encouraging debate on the topic.

2. It was one game, second of the season with 4 new starters who have very little in-game experience against a very good defense.  And he's already calling for people's heads- literally!  It took time for the last o-line group to gel and so it will be with this one.  The last group had the benefit of playing nobodies before games got tough, but these guys had to face a legit top-10 D in game 2 as starters.  Obviously we lost and that means plenty of people screwed up.  But was this post warranted? I don't see it.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

OSU doesn't sign anyone Urban doesn't want.  If you're criticizing recruiting it's Urban's fault as much, if not more than Warriner's. And Urban hired all of the assistants (and decided to keep Fickell), so then if the staff is as bad as you believe, it is solely Urban's fault. Yet you absolve him of all of it.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

You're right, I'm sure the staff thinks we did just fine out there and they're resting on their laurels.  And it's your internet comment that is the lone voice in the wilderness that recognizes that the o-line played poorly last night that will catalyze change and improve our o-line play.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I can't understand a fan relentlessly trashing his own team after a single loss against a good team.  You know that Urban recruited these guys, right? Yeah, it was ugly, we all saw it.  You're just bringing negativity and asshole-ishness that's totally inflammatory and unnecessary.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Game winning pass deflection against one of the league's all-time great recievers and one of the best QB's in the NFL!

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Glad to see the real "fans" coming out of the woodwork when things get tough.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I just got the courage to come back to 11W tonight.  I was at the game and, in addition to being crushed, had a feeling tempers might flare here. I'm just glad we've got a lighter slate on tap until Sparty, it's time for this team to get angry and learn from their mistakes.  Onward and upward!!

Comment 04 Sep 2014

I get that Bragg never really saw himself as a Buckeye and sure, maybe it makes sense for him and all.  My issue is that Thad hasn't always been able to lock down the top in-state kids, or identify lower-tier guys who are better than their rankings.  Ohio is a great basketball state and I just feel like he could do more in-state, especially considering his low rate of success with elite-tier national guys who we always seem to make lists for but never get.  Spend some more of that time on Ohio.  All that being said I hope Thad stays for a long time, this is just one of very few things that has bothered me about the Thad era.

Comment 03 Sep 2014

It was tough, most Lebron gifs fall into two categories: him being a haus and schadenfreude.
