Burrito Sweats. I now have a mental image that I can't get rid of...
That story is a good reminder to value every moment with our loved ones, and every moment of life. All of us are only a heartbeat away from going Home.
This was not a fluke. Brizee is a talented athlete who played four sports — baseball, soccer, golf and bowling — at Brush High School in suburban Cleveland.
Has never been in a Pressure Kick situation, even in high school football. One thing to nail a 55-yarder with only Chipotle on the line, a whole different thing to nail one for a walk-off win, or to tie for overtime. Maybe he can and maybe he can't.
Sure, maybe Marotti wore them out to the point where a few flicks of the thumbs weren't worth the energy. He also could've massacred them. Only time will tell, but for now we have to stick to the facts.
One sure sign would be if more scholarship openings come along all of a sudden.
Somebody whose number I could not see took out two Iowa Hawkeyes on that run, right near the end of the video.
I saw what you did there...
Games are won and lost in the trenches. Top level line talent is a must on both sides of the ball if any program wants to win consistently.
Simple as that.
It happens. Ohio State recruited Ben Roethlisberger as a wide receiver, and so did other schools, that's why he went to Miami because they were willing to let him play QB. Sometimes many people miss the obvious.
Thomas clearly had the skills to be an above-average NFL receiver, but it worked out well for him because he ended up on a team where his skills fit in well. Had he been on say, my Browns, it likely would not have been the same for Thomas.
Burrow could see over them.
I could talk myself into two walk-ons being a "helluva tandem" with three sips of alcohol.
Or a couple of gulps of Four Loko.
If they find capable replacements for Raekwon McMillan and Malik Hooker
A great thought and I hope it happens, but it is a very tall order. Those guys were playmakers, and in Raekwon's case, an experienced veteran as well.
The talent is there, though.
As long as they make sure that those aircraft get in the air, it is alright by me.
I assume that you have served in the military, and if so thank you for your service to our nation.
Figure out best way to split reps between Dwayne Haskins and Joe Burrow
Easy. Give the ball to Burrow. IMHO.
That first truck skipped, just like a stone!
I know Gerald Ford played football for ttun and all, but that is a cool video nonetheless.
Most amazing shot I've seen this year.
If you are saying that OSU, or any team, has to win the National Title to keep their verbals through signing day then that is pressure. Fortunately that didn't hold true this year.
It would be nice if he does sign when the time comes. The competition will be in his ear until then. From experience we know that anything can happen.
I am not only looking at how many wins in a row but also at the level of play and effort. I see an upward trend as I watch them play, win or lose I see it trending in a positive direction.
I would classify it as an upward trend. Much better than a losing streak of any length. Everybody sees things differently, so your point of view is understood, and many would agree with you I am sure. I simply disagree.
Look at the receivers from winning team in the Super Bowl from yesterday. Julian Edelman 5'10" 200 pounds. Danny Amendola 5'11" 190 pounds.
Precise route running and great hands. It works for receivers of any size.
The game was on ESPN, I don't know if it was national or regional, but at least there was some decent exposure. On a positive note, OSU Men's Basketball is trending upward at the moment.
I am from Zanesville as well. Buster Howe proved that he was a great high school football player. He spent most periods at ZHS in the halls and wasn't prepared to do college work in the classroom, so as a student-athlete he was overhyped. We will never know if his skills would have made him a football success at the college level, but if he could not succeed in the classroom at Ohio State, there is no reason to assume that he could have picked up the football scheme at Ohio State either. He may have been able to or he may not have been able to. If I recall correctly, ZHS ran the single-wing when Howe was there, so he would have had to learn and run the Pro-I which was the base offense at Ohio State at that time. If you can't deliver then you are overhyped in my view. He was a great high school player though.
Stxbuck: We will never know about Buster Howe in football at Ohio State because he could not do what is necessary for a student-athlete i.e. make the grade in school. Would his skills have translated into college level success on the football field? Maybe. Did he have the ability to win in the classroom like every other player must do to play in college? A resounding no. Therefore, as a student-athlete, he was overhyped. Frankly, if he could not make the grade in college then there is no way that he could have ever moved on the the NFL, where brains are as important as physical ability.
I know a little bit about Howe's background. He was enabled to get through his academics in high school without doing all the work, and so he was not prepared to make the grade at Ohio State even with the support given to student-athletes.
DVs for that comment are crazy. Why???
