The vocal minority can make a fan base look bad, and football is a whole other level down south, with Buckeye Nation being a northern school that rivals the SEC fanbase in terms of intensity. I knew a guy that was a Georgia fan who told me he knew they were football crazy down there but when he came to Columbus he could not believe how into the buckeyes the whole city was.
I really like the forums during the season where an 11W writer will have a writer from another school offer their assessment of their team and we often get to read what the 11W writer provided on the opponents site. That is pretty cool and would be great if we fans could be more like that.
Then again ... we know what word the term "fan" is derived from lol.
Q. What do you call a lawyer waist deep in cement?
A. Not enough cement
Badda bbada bing ...
Nebraska has aged as well in the 21st century as a pager
LOL, DJ always has the best one liners ... you can't teach that it's a gift.
Greg Oden looked pretty good in those highlights. I remember when he was coming out of high school there was a stat that he had the highest vertical of any 7' player ever measured. He was very athletic for a big man ... what could have been had his knees been able to handle his frame with all the explosive moves required for basketball.
I remember my son entered a full contact martial arts tournament once and participants were required to wear certain "protective devices" ... one of which might have helped DAR in that situation. LeBron is a brute of a guy, I imagine that pass had some hot sauce on it.
UV's for everyone!
Nice win, FT shooting good, five guys in double figures.
Downside, Kam was cold and 3 PT % not so great, but a win is a win is a win.
From one extreme to another eh?
Show off those guns! And think what he will look like after a few sessions with Coach Mick.
Wonder if anyone knows the answer to this ... guess I could Google it ... what percentage of recruits that give a verbal commit turn into signed off paperwork?
Ever think that for a second somebody is threatening him to throw the game?
And now here's my opinion how Cam's behavior is related to race, religion and politics ...
Just like he walked away from that late game fumble he should have jumped on ...
Did not read all 200+ posts, probably a rerun post. Yeah, hard to be gracious in defeat. I played tennis for 30 years, shaking the hand of your opponent after a loss sucks.
No DV's from me on any of your posts SM ... but you are better than this. :)
Hey, it's a sport site, people vent when things don't go the way they wanted, I get that.
Denver's defense was just too fast and disruptive and Carolina could not capitalize when they did have chances, was a perfect storm for them. In the final analysis, not sure how much it matters how you frame the reason a team lost, I guess to learn how to plug some holes moving forward.
Don't think Roby will be on Teddy Ginn's Christmas card list. :~}
I'm hated here because I research so much and my research is used to back up my opinions
I've been on 11W every day for about a year now, but not sure who you are and don't remember any of your posts.
Great advice Vico this should appear on national recruiting sites.
No starters in double figures and two of them with 0 points.
Is it next season yet?
Consider this year "paying dues" with everyone coming back next season, things will get better folks.
Lyle has the potential to be a superstar.
Tragic tragic tragic I hope all is revealed to us in the next life as to why something like this happens, heartbreaking beyond words.
Thanks DJ, great "day after Christmas" skully.
Aha ... my duh.
Plug and play eh? Wow, what a great get, here's to Mr. Pridgeon doing great on and off the field.
What the "F" Hove?
A bargain at half the price ... wait ... I don't think that's how the saying goes ... ;~}
