A couple of times I have made this observation regarding content ... not every story posted on 11W necessarily needs to allow for comments.
I try not to fall into the trap of comparing myself to others, but when you consider Don Unverferth as the athlete and as the pioneering physician ... yeah ... feeling a little inadequate right now LOL.
Kudos to Mayor Lashutka on a very eloquent and informative article.
(maybe you should add a: P.S.S. - Recommend you not walk down your namesake avenue alone at night) ;)
Game, set, match and regular season!
Incredible and inspirational story that transcends sports and helps put things into perspective. Top notch journalism with a personal tie in, damn good job Johnny.
I'll have to think about it.
A defensive battle LOL. Exciting stuff all kidding aside.
Landed Proctor and it was no Gamble!
"He believes in culture, he believes in character and he believes in doing it the right (a)way"
Well ... he's a hell of a coach for sure.
*IF* the 2014 version of JT shows up this season ... look out world.
Yeah, but you can easily lose the bun, speed is kind of a God-given talent, you can improve technique, how fast you get out of the block, but you're either fast are you're not ... quick twitch muscles are the exception rather then the rule.
But I get that you're joking. Unless you're a Samurai ... don't be "that guy" with the bun LOL.
He should have been disqualified, obviously the jeans are covering his bionic legs ...
Just as long as ESPN does not award us the September Heisman ...
So ... for those of you who know more about all this than me ... which is probably most everyone here LOL ... is this a NC caliber team or "just" a top ten team?
BP, maybe Nick Bosa will win a starting role (not that he is coming out of nowhere ... but you know what I mean).
I scream ... you scream ... we all scream for more screens!
If PSU had been picked to win would not have been a shocker, but I guess part of the analysis is considering the entire roster, not just the starting QB and RB.
Will be exciting to see how Campbell does this coming season, Buckeye Nation will be rooting for him big time of course.
I don't get why Demario McCall isn't the guy for the H-back position, it seems he would be perfect for that role based on his size speed moves etc. but oh well what do I know (please don't answer that last part, I know the answer, not much LOL).
LOL. Hey I'm a programmer WPB, we always reuse code whenever we can.
I get where you are coming from WM and a UV to you, my thought on next season being a make-or-break for Coach Matta simply is because so many fans are upset and knowing the way the sports world works.
Will be rooting for Thad and his squad to do well next season. Would like to get back to the NCAA of course and do a little damage. Based on all factors I think Gene Smith is doing the right thing, it's one thing to post on a sports site, it's another to make a decision that is fair and reflects well on an institution. Coach Matta has definitely earned some good will, although if things don't turn around next season it could be his last. That makes for a tough environment to operate in, puts pressure on the coaching staff and players that is counter productive, but coaching can be a brutal business sometimes and admittedly Matta is making a very good salary, he's set for life financially by now no doubt.
LOL good one!
Cryin' won't help ya and prayer won't do ya no gooooood ...
So I'm wondering if part of the reason for not having a 1000+ yard WR is the QB position. Pryor, Miller and even JT (he did light it up in 2014) are run-oriented QB's. If you have a Manziel, Mariota or Watson type of QB behind center your receiving yards are going to go up.
