This actually doesn't surprise me in the least. I'll honestly say I'm not fully 100% on board, since the sample size is as small as it is, but I'm extremely optimistic. I hope he gets enough play to get a nice draft spot.
He will keep it going. He has too big of a following, and he just increased it by that much more.
Just about made a post about this... glad I avoided jail.
Don't know much about McNeal but I never really thought we had a realistic shot at Jefferson. He seemed destined to stay in the South, if not the state of Texas, in one way or another. I agree - at least it's not the SEC.
When you're 6'5", 250, the overwhelming majority of the population looks like a child next to you.
You can't put him in jail, he just had a son...
Chic's Ghost, you and I seem to be pretty much in complete accord about this.
We don't know anything that's going on or went on at Nebraska, true. However, true, upstanding men know better than to act this way when joining a new job. It's like dating a woman who wants to trash their ex. It really just makes you look trashy and pathetic. Real leaders conduct themselves in a respectable fashion, and badmouthing your former employer after receiving a new position is immature and classless, and he should be ashamed.
Dude I could not care less. The guy is a huge pile of shit, going back to his days at Miami. He's skirted the law on several different instances and literally got away with murder. There's nothing he can say that will ever allow him to gain my respect, therefore whatever hollow bullshit he can spew will mean nothing to me.
You seem to have forgotten the 20+ games under Braxton.
And what gives you that idea? He's making a comparison between the two, so logic would say he very much remembers them...??
Ray Lewis? Why not just have Vick come in and talk to the guys.
100% agree. I hate when people act as if "saying exactly what's on your mind" is some sort of positive. Any grown man knows how to conduct himself with class and humility, especially in a situation such as his. He came off as a trashy loser, and if I'm the AD at any other school, I want nothing to do with him regardless of how many wins he gets at Youngstown. This was an exceptional disappointment to hear a former Buckeye act like this.
I don't think he said it was?
Very fair comparison. You can't question the effort and love Brax and Craft have for OSU and how much it was reciprocated, but it's hard to argue things don't move better with their replacements.
I completely forget what this thread was even about. Now I just want every puppy.
Thanks for coming to Columbus, and thanks for visiting the site and offering your opinion. It's always good to see classy fans of the opposition, even when you have (very deserving) bragging rights. Cannot wait til next year in Blacksburg!
If that was better than Hoyer, then stop watching football. Because you clearly don't understand the game with that comment.
Brian Hoyer, week 14 vs. Indy (minus one of the NFL's best defensive backs): 43.4% comp, 4.53 YPA, 0 TD, 2 INT
Manziel, week 15 vs. Cincinnati: 55.6% comp, 4.44 YPA, 0 TD, 2 INT
Browns also had more dropped passes week 15 vs. week 14, and the defense didn't do nearly as much to help with field position as they did vs. Indy, as they only forced 1 TO week 15 compared to 4 in week 14. At least Manziel is able to move around and give the offense a spark. We know what to expect from Hoyer; not much at all. Manziel at least offers more potential. Considering that the season's already basically over, I'd much rather see what the kid can do.
Me, and I still stand by it. There's absolutely nothing to be gained by playing Hoyer. Manziel played like shit in his first start, hardly the first time that's ever happened. He still has more upside than Hoyer and I'm looking forward to watching him play the final 2 games.
Very incorrect. He chose OSU largely because we said we were recruiting him as a QB and not an athlete, which is what doomed Auburn in his recruitment.
My friend, we are anything but cursed. We've experienced a level of success that very, very few college football fans have been able to experience.
I wouldn't, by any means, anoint Gibson over Burrow. There's 0 reason to think Burrow can't beat him out, unless the only thing that matters is recruiting rankings.
I know the quiet period is starting very soon but I think he still has time. That said, the area that kid is from is Baylor territory, and I know Briles has been on him like a fly on shit recently.
The kind of QBs we've been recruiting aren't the kind that go to schools like Houston.
I did not know that. I still think we could get him.
