I wouldn't count out Warren Ball yet. That kid bleeds S&G as much as anyone on this team, and he's dreamed of running for the Buckeyes since he was a baby. If he can stay healthy, he will see the field. By no means is this a slight against guys like EzE, Dunn and Smith. Those guys are fantastic backs with tons of talent. However, I really think Ball will make it happen this year.
There was nothing superior about Beanie. I loved watching him and when healthy he was a beast. Hyde loses nothing to Beanie in terms of power, speed, or anything else, though. It'd be one thing to say you thought Beanie was better and backed it up. Saying he was "far superior" is just retarded.
All of my best to you and your family, Baro. I've been trying to keep up on this a bit myself, and it's alarming that the regulations and standards in the chemical industry have been so demonstrably overlooked as the industry overall grows. With new chemical lines and production come new potential hazards, and I'm familiar with the situation in WV as one of my colleagues sells chemicals into the enormous energy sector there. I'm going to be traveling with one of my younger colleagues in WV next week, as well, as he is still training so I'm going to get some first hand accounts for sure.
It's really relieving to know it's become much easier to get usable water for consumption. It's one of those things you take for granted really, I suppose.

"Rosemount, Minnesota - The racial makeup of the city was 87.3% White, 3.0% African American, 0.4% Native American, 5.6% Asian, 1.1% from other races, and 2.6% from two or more races.
The median income for a household in the city was $65,916, and the median income for a family was $68,929 (these figures had risen to $83,826 and $90,644 respectively as of a 2007 estimate)."
Seriously?? This little upper-middle class white kid from the suburbs? What a complete fucking douchebag. What he actually needs is his dad to give him a boot up the ass for being a little poser.
Because Gene Smith isn't at fault! I hate this sort of rationale. Small is a grown man. The blame lies on him and him alone. He made his bed. Gene Smith didn't give him the drugs and guns, he sought them out. Do you have any idea how many athletes Gene Smith oversees in a 4-year period? You're trying to say he's responsible for the character and actions of all of them?? Come on, man. That is horrible.
Once a Buckeye, ALWAYS a Buckeye. I'll pray for the kid and hope everything turns out ok....
I couldn't disagree with you more. Being a Buckeye is a privilege, not a right. He had a truly rare opportunity, and he didn't care about it. He had a lazy, disrespectful attitude, he blamed others for his own shortcomings, and now this? In my opinion, I don't associate guy like this with Buckeye Nation. He used to be a member, but his own selfishness and foolishness has cost him his spot. Buckeye Nation is comprised of men and women with respect, honor, and a sense of duty to represent us in the most positive light. Small has done the exact opposite. It is sad, yes, but I do not want someone like him free in society.
His dad is a frickin house. We oughta suit him up, too.
I feel bad for Steve Tovar. It isn't often a guy can be a 2x All-American and be as overlooked as him. He deserves some love on here.
I agree. Fitzgerald is awesome.
With Stoney moved out to WR, why not bring Fragel back to TE? If Decker struggles, Fragel can step in, but it would be great to line them up next to each other on running plays.
A 6'5", 245 lb WR that runs in the 4.5 range doesn't create mismatches in a conference that isn't known for producing top flight defensive backs?
That's today. They got to campus probably 4 hours ago, based on their twitters
Been seeing some comments on the need for a leader at MLB. I couldn't agree more, but I think we've found him. Luke Roberts is one of the most intelligent players I've ever seen play. He has an unbelievable motor and is faster than he clocks. Like Laurinaitis, he flew under the radar in the recruiting arena, but he has done nothing by rise since last summer. Expect him to be a starter in 2013 or 2014 after a RS frosh year. He has great size and is a punishing tackler.
