Okay, that's about as bad as it can get.
Is it just me or does this team seem to play better when they're trailing at the half?
"Imagine being put through the wringer like this as a high school student, and having to face up to seven more weeks of public pressure. How on earth does this seem like a good idea? Why would the McDowells put their child through this?"
This statement really jumped out at me. Having been and still being, a parent of teenagers and young adults, trust me, it's rarely as simple as it appears on the surface. And on the surface, I would agree that the answer is simple. Let the kid go where he wants. Right after the disappointment that the Bucks wouldn't be adding another 5*, this was my first thought too. But the longer this has dragged on, I'm thinking more and more that this mom is doing what she thinks is best for her son. I've got nothing but a "gut" feeling to back up this view but considering the heat this woman has got to be taking in her community (and much farther away), I get the sense she's trying to use the last bullet she has in her gun in hopes of getting him away from an environment she feels harmful to her son. Really, what does she gain from it personally? She's become somewhat (in)famous, sure but if MM goes out of state for school, she'll deal with crap from people on the street, in grocery stores, at work, etc for a long time. Especially, if he excels somewhere else.
I'm having similar problems on my iPhone with one addition. Most of the times I touch the screen brings up the "copy/define" function and I have a hard time getting out of it/
If this team wins the B1G tourney or makes the Sweet 16, it may turn out to be Matta's best coaching jobs at TOSU. They were lost in January and the NIT had begun to look like a long shot. They aren't great now but at least, they're playing like a team and they're really fun to watch. They seem to have developed the chemistry they were lacking last month.
My read exactly. I think, Urbz has too much class and is too much of a professional to disrespect Fickell by publicly announcing what in essence, is a demotion through loss of responsibilities.
After each game, I keep telling myself they can't look any worse but incredibly, I am wrong every time I say it. Damn, that was a hard watch. I'm not sure a W would've made me feel any better about it. How can TOSU not have at least one player that create his own shot?
OooRah! Definitely, one of the only times it was good to be the short guy.
I'm not going to argue the point of whether the play calling was great or not (it wasn't) but they scored 35 points. That should be enough to win any game if you have a respectable D.
Maybe the silver lining is UFM moves Fickell along to his next job. I love the guy but he's obviously, not cut out to be the DC at this point in his career.
I've never felt so bad going to halftime w/a lead.
It's officially a dumpster fire.
Is the rest of the country right? Were we over-rated? I can't believe the D actually looks worse.
Does anyone know why Baylor is wearing purple?
i understand the kids love the alternate unis but shouldn't they be in your school colors?
From your keyboard to God's ears, my brother.
Every time I hear someone bashing Herbstreit for doing his job, I think of this picture.
Once a Buckeye, Always a Buckeye.
"now that El Guapo has become an unstoppable freight train powered by nightmares and pain"
Best possible description of Hyde, EVER.
How could anyone be "perfectly content" to have their team go 25-0 over a two year span and not get a shot at the NC? This is a team that started the season #2 and hasn't lost a game! the pollsters knew our schedule before the season started and still voted us #2. I'm not saying the B1G bashing isn't fair, it may be but, this was a known metric entering this season.
Have to agree. With the exception of FSU, the ACC is hard to watch and that includes Clemson.
Hard to make an argument that we deserve a NC shot after this defensive effort.
For those of you who really follow recruiting, how much, if at all, has the national perception of the B1G affected the recruiting and commitments of the 4 &b 5 stars?
A major coup to steal this kid from Bucky. Buckeye wrestling is becoming the beast it always had the potential to be.
Tom Ryan is building Buckeye Wrestling into a Beast. It's about time the flagship school in the greatest (IMO but at least in the top 3) high school wrestling state has a constistently strong program.
