So now Maycock is supposedly in the running for Redskins' GM, and might be enamored of Peppers. Oh barf.
Mr. SBMW also misses Sonny (Jurgenson), Sam (Huff) and Frank (Herzog) broadcasting Skins games on the radio. As much as SS and F loved their team, they called them as they saw them. Frank was put out to pasture when they brought in a Redskins VP, Larry Michaels to call the game, Sam was retired when he started showing signs of dementia (possibly from CTE from his many years in football), and Sonny, while still on the broadcasts, sounds old, frail, and a step behind. They have him reading a lot of the ads and announcements, and not so much color. What is left is suck ups to "Mr. Snyder" (don't you dare call him Dan), and members of the clown show over in Ashburnistan (aptly named by Skins beat writer Dan Steinberg). Oh well, hopefully nowhere to go but up, ehh? But hey, it could be worse, I could be a Redskins fan AND a _ichigan (wo)Man. Shudders.
Can't forget Corey Linsley, starting center for Green Bay...
Win WIn. Kyle gets his degree from OSU, then gets his Masters and hopefully lots of playing time at UC. Nice!
Grew up in BG. Really nice little college town. Lots of professors' and farmers' kids. Went to all the football, hockey and basketball games with my dad/family. Hockey was huge back then. Lots of people were BGSU and OSU fans except in hockey. Big rivalry there, as they both were in the WCHA (dissolved when the Big 10 started their own hockey league). Went to OSU because I knew the BG campus like the back of my hand, and was ready to try a bigger school. Loved my time at OSU, but have a very soft spot in my heart for BG.
Agreed. Gleitmann on buckets is saying basically that Urban is less than pleased with Studwara's OL coaching this year. Warinner killed on O Line, but not so much as OC. What I can't understand is that when they moved Warinner into the booth for the last few games last year, the offense suddenly clicked, and looked great. What happened this year to change it? Under developed OL and WRs?? Poor QB coaching?
I thought Tate looked a little stunned at first when he saw Eddie George, and tried to look nonchalant. I would imagine internally he wanted to jump up and down and run around the house hollering "holy effing sh#t Eddie George is in my kitchen making buckeyes and he gave me the Gatorade award!" and then collapse in a pile. But that would be seriously uncool, ya know?
On th subject of Kenny Guiton, since he was a grad assistant for Tom Herman at Houston, I wonder if Herman will be bringing him to UT?
Ooh, tacos in a bag, as we call them! One of the local high schools actually has them available at their concession stand during football and lacrosse games. Luckily for some, the stadium bathrooms are right nearby.
Grew up in BG, but I rarely make it back to 43402, as my parents while still there, spend time down south also. Almost didn't recognize Chip because last time I saw him, his hair was umm, darker. He sold the Dairy Queen that his family owned a few years ago. Oh well, I can understand why he wants to cash in his chips.
Didn't Urban turn down Notre Dame when they ended up hiring Brian Kelly? He was at Florida at the time, if I remember correctly. If he really wanted ND, why didn't he jump then? For that reason, I don't see him jumping to them. That bridge has been crossed.
You also need to understand that there is a Southern culture, and you are a Yankee. I speak with experience. Non-OSU daughter went south to an SEC school. She had to get adjusted to it. Are you interested in joining a fraternity? Alabama is a very big Greek school. When you visit, you might want to really pay attention to the vibes you feel while there. Do they feel good, or do you want to get the heck out of there quickly?
I get the dollars aspect, it is a huge issue these days. You really don't want to saddle yourself or parents with too much debt. And if you really want to get out of Ohio and go someplace, then Alabama might be a better fit for you. Now, that being said, do you hope to come back to Ohio after graduation? If so, an Alabama degree might not get you in as many doors as an OSU degree will. Not to mention, you will not make the same connections being out of state for 4 years. And these days, connections and internships often give you a leg up. But if you are flexible as to where you go post graduation, that point might be moot.
Have you called the OSU scholarship office? Let them know that you have a full ride to Alabama, they might up your scholarship $$. It does happen.
Good luck! It is a big decision.
I didn't mind the Mean Streak, as I couldn't handle going upside down on a coaster, gave me a nice case of vertigo every time, ugh. So yes, I became the one who held everybody's stuff while sitting on a bench near whatever coaster the others were riding. Did get some good people watching in though, I guess.
What absolute jerks. What in the hell were they thinking? Sumlin also deserves heat for this, as these are his coaches. I guess he never thought to review their chalk talk before the session. Humphhh. I wonder if the AD has Tom Herman's agent on speed dial?
