  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 2007 game against TTUN. It's the only game against them I have been to. The O-H-I-O chant in the Big House is something I won't forget.

Bell was active through the whole camp. The "or" in their position is just that, there is still a competition going on. Coach Meyer has stated numerous times this summer that Burrows and Bell were neck and neck at the position.

Apparently this thread has taken the old thread's place. I can only hope that it lives up to the potential this time.

Edit: It's happening.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

I just thought about Robert Smith right after I posted. Ohio State has been fortunate to have quite a few speed backs in the past. It never looked like Pittman was going that fast, but probably it was because he was relatively big too. 

A 4.4 forty is quite fast. Definitely surprised me.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

I never remember Antonio Pittman having elite speed. I could be wrong, but I just remember him as a solid back. Speedy running backs of late (at least that I can recall) are Brandon Saine, Lydell Ross (maybe a stretch), and Michael Wiley. I am definitely forgetting a few but for some reason those three come to mind.

I am not saying you are. I am simply stating that there were other members who had certain similarities to you. Nothing especially wrong with that. Just a possible explanation.

Comment 25 Aug 2014

The thread could have been the next "BUCKSFAN CHANGING ICON" thread, but there was not enough traction to get it going this time. Total bummer. Had lots of potential.

Comment 25 Aug 2014

There was a user with the same icon as this guy a little while ago. He went by "ilovethebuckeyes" and "ihatethewolverines" if I remember correctly. They both had similar writing styles as he does. 

Regardless, I hope he is not either.

An 11W original. A perfect addition to the list.
Comment 23 Aug 2014
I do 't think he called him a bust at all. He is just saying he didn't live up to massive expectations that were largely unfair. That isn't necessarily the opinion of the author, but it is a widely accepted opinion. He was the #2 recruit behind Jadeveon Clowney. People expected him to be an All American and be gone to the NFL by now.
Comment 22 Aug 2014

I have always hated this too. I mean I guess I don't mind when race or sex is noted, but I think it crosses the line when their race or sex becomes more of a story than their performance. Celebrating a team in the Little League World Series just because they are composed of black kids seems a little wrong to me. Why is it such a rare occasion that a black team can play baseball? They should be celebrate primarily for the talent, and the other stuff should just be a cool side note.

I agree with you on this. ESPN doesn't really need to be brought up here. The one argument for the ESPN-SEC conspiracy is the SEC Network. Since it is owned by ESPN, they could get more money from more attention. However, I can't understand why putting down Ohio State would help much, at least in the preseason.

Sadly, I believe he had 11 identities including KateUptonsLowerBack. Total bummer.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

Oregon kind of has to recruit speed over size. The spread was initially created to be an offense for smaller teams to compete with larger teams. Oregon, despite popular belief, doesn't have great recruiting classes year in and year out. Over the past 3 years they have been on average 20th ranked team when it comes to recruiting. Not bad certainly, but they don't usually have elite classes.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

We will have to see. Everyone said the same thing about Curtis Grant his freshman year. I personally that Curtis Grant will benefit from Ash's more simple defense. Regardless, I think whoever plays at MLB will have a big year.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

He has had some injury problem, but I wouldn't be surprised if he just simply was not getting the job done. Urban has said that it takes some players two years to get their black stripe off.

Comment 17 Aug 2014

Utah State is a solid team. They haven't quite been as good since Gary Andersen left, but they have still been pretty successful.
