I proudly walk on 2 legs but this could be subject to change as I age. I enjoy both eating and drinking.
In high school I made a New Year's resolution not to eat anything purple. 25 years later, so far so good.
Sad faced clowns are KGB operatives meant to confuse us while they do spy stuff.

Sorry guys but I gotta pull the 'I'm a lot older than you think I am' card. 

I've personally seen more kindness from strangers in 5 years of Southern living than I did in 40+ years of living in Ohio. It's not even close. And they go even further when they think you're from out of town.

Southern Hospitality is a very real thing and there is no Northern equivalent. It pains me to say this, given that my Ohio roots extend to pre-statehood, but it's true.

1. Wrong. Tons of new Christmas songs and some are really good. Get your Christmas music fix from a Christian radio station and you'll get a good mix of traditional carols, secular songs like Jingle Bells, and newer Christmas songs that are actually about Christmas.

4. Wrong. Dogs generally eat with a pack mentality- eat as much as you can whenever you can because you don't know when you'll get your next meal. No different than a large family eating dinner with a limited amount of food on the table.

10. You sit through 4 hrs of the SEC Network each day because a coworker insists on it? Grow some balls.

Comment 22 Dec 2014

You started off by blaming internet posters for Fickell's bad rep, then created a theory (your words, not mine), then backed it up with hypotheticals.

I want Fickell to succeed but he was given a chance to run the ship and was exposed. Not surprisingly, his credibility suffered in the process. The proof is in the lack of interviews; no one nationally talks about what a great coordinator he is; no one mentions him anymore when they talk about the best assistants (compare him to Kirby Smart who isn't leaving Bama but is annually mentioned among the best asst coaches).

Sorry BassDropper, but your theory doesn't hold water.

You mean like Harbaugh? He doesn't want to leave the NFL yet UM's dropping big bucks to get him to consider it.

Comment 22 Dec 2014

stop putting words in my mouth. point to where I said 'unless you're a HC you're no good'. I reread my posts and I didn't say anything even remotely close to this.

The strawman is strong in this one.

Comment 22 Dec 2014

all right. I'm calling your bluff BassDropper. I was on this message board and on Bucknuts and never once saw people bitching about Siciliano UNTIL AFTER Tressel was gone.

People questioned the hire but trusted in Tressel.

Please stop trying to rewrite history.

Comment 22 Dec 2014

Fickell's declining interviews for that?

Gee, you must not think highly of Warinner's, Ash's, or Herman's dedication.

I appreciate that you acknowledged that this is all your theory.
 

Comment 22 Dec 2014

BassDropper I'm still waiting for a plausible explanation why - if Fickell is such a great coach - he isn't he getting calls for HC gigs. Somebody somewhere would drop a bunch of money his way to coax him from OSU no matter how much Fickell supposedly wants to stick around.

You talk of facts while ignoring the most glaring fact: in the last few months 3 of Urban's assistants have interviewed for HC jobs and Fickell has had zero interviews.

Comment 22 Dec 2014

No one bitched about Siciliano as QB Coach until he was exposed when Tressel was removed. There is a direct relationship to Fickell trending down and Heacock leaving. Does anyone think it was a coincidence that Heacock was brought in to consult in 2013?

Comment 22 Dec 2014

In the last few months, Warinner, Ash and Herman all interviewed for HC jobs. Zero interviews for Fickell.

Sorry BassDropper but that's a reflection of how AD's view him. To blame this on internet posters is kinda sad.

If he were the hot commodity you want to believe he is, please explain the discrepancy between Fickell and the 3 others. As for the prior interviews, have you noticed that Pitt isn't going after him this time? That should tell you something.

Comment 22 Dec 2014

too funny.

guys like Herman, Warinner and Ash are getting interviews and Fickell is not. And bloggers are to blame? I had no idea anonymous people on the internet held sway over AD's all across America.

Comment 04 Dec 2014

I handled both. If you go that route you'll need to work out the details with both coaches because there will be conflicts.

As for your OP, lots of little factors to consider but they all revolve around one question: What is the best situation for his game to evolve?

It's not as simple as saying just go the club route. Time constraints, level of competition, PLAYING TIME, conflicts with school/family, etc...

If he's dedicated to it then it won't matter as much; he'll be putting in his free time practicing even if it's just kicking a ball against a wall for 90 minutes a day. Supplement that with watching online training videos...

Comment 29 Nov 2014

Does the OP rally think we're gonna install a new offense in 1 week? There might be a variation here and there but we're going to see the basically the same offense with a heavier emphasis on the run. WIsky's gonna load the box and test Cardale's ability to throw.

Comment 24 Nov 2014

Ha!

Buckeyevstheworld, thanks for the reminder. It wasn't whatever made up excuse CincyOSU made up for him.

Kinda like when he suggested that rabid OSU fans caused him to move to Tenn, only later on he admitted OSU fans had nothing to do with it. Long after the fact he said that he and his wife wanted to live closer to her parents.
 

Comment 24 Nov 2014

Zeversole, that's recent and minor fluff compared to the stuff he pulled prior to that.

There are so many things, and you can look them up yourself, but the one I'll never forget is him dropping us 3 spots in the AP poll after we WON our bowl game. IIRC, that's the only time in the history of the AP poll that a voter dropped a team after a bowl victory.

Comment 24 Nov 2014

these 'Let's Defend Herbie' threads appear about once a year, followed by the inevitable threads posting all the documented ways he's taken shots at OSU. I think Ramzy himself posted a rebuttal thread in the last year or two.

If Byrnes is serious when he says he doesn't understand why Buckeye Nation is upset with Herbie, maybe he should touch base with Ramzy or, as I mentioned, do some homework. This stuff is floating on the internet for all to see.

those who don't learn history are doomed to repeat it I guess....

Comment 24 Nov 2014

Are there seriously Buckeye fans who don't know why a large portion of Buckeye Nation can't stand the guy?

Have you people been asleep for the last 12 years or so?

As the saying goes, you're entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts. Herbie's swipes at his alma mater are well documented. Do some homework and your eyes will open.
