The only game I saw him play was the 1969 UM/OSU game. The guy was a nightmare.
I was surprised Gerd drafted Denard over Braxton. Well, not that surprised actually.
Ditto the arrow. Oh, right, that's where the punter lines up. Classic. Anyway, I hope to see many punts from this kid when he plays scUM.
Hoke has said he's used "Ohio" since he was a kid. It's childish humor, or "dumb" as you put it, which is probaby why I like it so much.
About the "Ohio" thing ... doesn't OSU play its home games at "Bobcat" Stadium?
Seriously, what I like about the "Ohio" jab is that it does get under the skin of some OSU fans, and it's not a stupid "scUM" or "worst state ever" jab delivered by rabid fans. The "Ohio" jab is delivered by the head coach, right out in public.
BTW, I can't tell you how many times I see someone post, "I hate scUM!" Doesn't offend me at all.
Sorry. I'm not a UM grad so my typing and spelling are not always perfect. :)
Thanks for not killing our recruites.
I first knew that RichRod wasn't going to work out when he was asked about the rivalry with OSU. He called it something like "one of the greatest rivalries..."
Brings back memories...
You guys may end up pulling in better recruits, I don’t know. But I do think UM is upgrading their talent level, too. I think of it like a pennant race. You gain ground faster by beating your competition directly. UM and OSU used to match up pretty evenly. But in Carr’s last few years, I think Tressell was winning almost all the head-to-head recruiting battles. UM has always recruited “nationally” but without getting any of the local kids, our level of talent was obviously going down. Now Hoke is actually beating Meyer out on some Ohio recruits. Who would have thought?
I can understand you guys not liking the big block M. I think I'll change that. (At least I cropped off the part where the wolverine was ripping apart Brutus.)
As far as SCUM goes, I chose that name because I think it is funny they way Ohio (YTO) fans think it is somehow offensive. I’m not offended. I hope it doesn’t offend you.
As far as what brought me here, I noticed that UM brought in a couple of LB recruits out of Ohio. McCray and Gedeon, I think. McCray’s father was even a captain at OSU from what I hear. I was curious who OSU is recruiting since all the Ohio kids are now going to Michigan.
In my opinion, I think Urban is leaving a big opening for us, similar to the way RichRod let Dantonio run loose in our state. They still get a couple of good players, but State has been force to recruit “nationally” since Hoke showed up. I know the same is not true of OSU – they can pretty much real in anyone they want out of Ohio.
I don't know. AACC?
Edit: I think I finally got it. AACC. That's funny. I'm not a AA grad or the CC type. Actually, I think Henee lost to the Bobcat's 4 times.
After 3 years of watching Terrell Pryor play, I would tell you he came from Jennette, PA (or some such place).
I didn't know the difference. I don't usually pay attention to which high school kids go to.
He looks like a good kid. Chad Henne came from Wyomissing, PA, by the way. He turned out to be a pretty good player, just not against Ohio. :)
