Ramzy, my best friend, who pulled me out of a burning car seconds before it exploded, and later loaned me $50,000 to start up my now successful business, is marrying my sister on a Buckeye football Saturday. Of course he wants me to be his best man. What is the most tactful way to let him know I won't be attending the wedding?
Hilarious article, an instant classic.
Joe you can't be old enough to remember The Prisoner as I am, you must have watched reruns on some cable channel I presume.
The bucks have had some great recruiting classes and have a lot of electric offensive weapons AND looks like the defense will be on the rise this season. HOWEVER ... to lose Braxton with an inexperienced offensive line ... whew ... that could be a tough situation. No disrespect intended, but Jones and Barrett are far from ready for prime time. I think with Braxton at the helm the plan is to go roughly 55% passing 45% running, but if he goes out we'd probably be more like 40% passing 60% running, in my purely speculative opinion.
Michael, I would appreciate it if you would read through all of my posts prior to publishing any new content.
I was at the Ohio Union yesterday for the first time in many years, wow, is it awesome, like a buckeye cathedral, got me fired up! It's great to be a buckeye and have the best coaching staff in the country with back-to-back and upcoming to-back top five recruiting classes.
Great idea John and excellent supporting arguments!
DWill definitely showed "flashes of brilliance" last season and did well for a freshman. Coming in this season with experience under his belt, a year older and weighing in at a few more pounds ... could be some exciting times ahead.
Here we are now, entertain us.
Look forward to reading your pieces Patrick. My niece graduated from OU a few years ago with a degree in journalism. She interned at the Dispatch for a while and had some front page stories. She is now living in Phoenix doing mainly political expose journalism for their big paper there (a lot of online stuff also). A combination of talent and hard work got her to where she is today, best wishes for the same for you.
Right after LeBron's first decision I told my friends I would watch the kid from Akron no matter what team he played for. I got a lot of flak about that, especially from my buddies in NE Ohio, they said the only thing keeping our friendship going was because I'm a rabid buckeye fan lol. So, I don't have the hypocrisy issue they have now that he has "come home". Of course sports fans are not known for being rational, myself included at times, so it's all good.
Four excellent questions Jeff. Great kid with all kinds of records already, but would of course love if he had a Troy Smith kind of senior year (but with a successful post season) and put all those questions to rest.
Kyle does a great job providing us with recruiting information. There are going to be some kids who want to have fun in the sun, maybe be a bigger catch for a program that doesn't have a top five recruiting class. I've never been one to be all that concerned about "losing" out on a recruit, it happens, best wishes to the young man. I think smart money would be on the buckeyes having a better chance than Florida this season and in the seasons to come getting to the playoffs, but that is not the complete motivation for all kids.
It appears with the mega lightning strikes the gods are angry that UT is imitating a football program. It would be cool to see a version of this with the band and team frantically running off the field looking for cover.
He seems "Taylor" made for the buckeyes ... waa waa waa waa waaaaaaaaaa ....
Neat story, I bet he takes full advantage of this opportunity, glad we kept this Ohio AND C-bus kid from going out-of-state.
In the middle part of last season Miller was throwing nice, crisp spirals, I thought he had finally "figured out that throwing thing" and was on his way to becoming a great dual threat QB. Then, his passing seemed to deteriorate at the end of the season. BMill is going to have a ton of records before he hangs up his helmet, but would be wonderful if he has a great senior season passing, runs less, wins a B1G Championship and helps take the bucks to the playoffs. I think the receiving corp will be a little better this year, but the OL is probably a big question mark at this point.
Matta has a great resume and is an even better person. You wonder how much longer he can coach with his health problems, hopefully many more years to come. Yeah, the 2010-11 team falling to UK in the big dance was a huge disappointment, that season the bucks were clearly the best team in the country and I thought for sure the NC would be ours.
Wow, impressive workout and training routine. Giddens obviously has a strong work ethic. Strong core also, check out the six pack lol.
I'm undoubtedly one of the older posters on this site. When I was 7 or 8 years old I used to walk a couple of miles to the bus stop, take the bus downtown to the YMCA, swim and do gymnastics, then take the bus back home (today, if you let a kid do that, family services would be knocking on your door!). I remember as the bus made it to downtown, the city had no skyline, it was flat with one and only one skyscraper, the Lincoln LeVeque tower. Dublin was a lot of farmland, now it is yuppieville. Yes, Columbus has come a long way over the past 60 years. People from outside the state sometimes judge Ohio when they only visit cities like Steubenville or Canton, but Columbus is in my mind the jewel city of the state, and one of the nicest cites in the midwest and the country.
Can't argue with any of those two picks, well done Jeff. The two I would select since I'm a little more offensively minded would be Eddie George and Cris Carter. Talk about instant offense with those two, man oh man.
If you had posted this on a forum yesterday it would have been more convincing. ;-)
Appears to be a hard worker on defense as well as offense, also looks pretty smooth and coordinated which is special for a kid that size. Hope he will be able to realize the potential he obviously has. In Thad We Trust!
#pissedoffforgreatness ... interesting, that is definitely a hashtag I haven't seen before.
I remember when Arthur Ashe won Wimbledon in 1975 and was asked how it felt to win perhaps the most prestigious tournament in all of sports, he replied something along the lines of "Well, keep in mind there are about a billion people in China who don't know or care about this". Of course, things have changed almost 40 years later and one of the big stars in China is the female tennis player Li Na, who has won two grand slam titles. Ramzy is right, our perspective is pretty ethno-centric, but I'm fine with that, I'm a buckeye through-and-through and always will be, and if there is any holiday where nationalism should be allowed to dominate over a global perspective, it's the Fourth of July.
