Comment 25 Jan 2015

Made me wonder if Alex Malzone is still as comfortable and cocky as he was a few months back when he was Brady's golden boy.  Anyone care to check his twitter and let us know?  Longhorns will miss Gentry, but word down here is they are going to flip Kyler Murray from AtM.  Personally, I love seeing a move that weakens the SEC while indirectly strengthening the BIG (although I wish it wasn't UM).

Both are good prospects, some media push Gibson away from QB but he has the higher ceiling as evidenced by ratings/measurables.  And you gotta love that he has stated openly his willingness to redshirt and learn from those ahead of him.  Maybe we should let Gibson display his abilities for the coaches before stating opinions with little founding.  Urbs is recruiting him as a QB afterall...

Strange I hear ya.  I live in TX now and definitely hear a bit about the SEC from the Aggs and a few Bamers.  That said I enjoy wearing my colors and smile but I avoid the shit talk...nothing says more to classless fans than a silent smile and "yeah they played well."  Its been fun listening to these same fans tell me how good the team is.  Hold your head high my friend.

Couldn't disagree more.  Herby is a great announcer...objecrive and knowledgeable.  He is not a homer, but too many from the fan base want him to be.  Proud he is a buckeye.

Bama is actually quite a good school.  Compares favorably to BIG programs.  Just check us news and world report rankings to verify.

Comment 10 Jan 2015
Damn straight Crumb...dudes our best player and has the highest ceiling of all the QBs. Just needs to stay healthy and recover so he can show it on the field.

Gonna have to say Brax will set a better example for Landon (3 yr old son)...the opposite just doesn't seem his style.

Buceyebacker98 ...italics = sarcasm on 11W but thanks for stating the obvious

Comment 07 Jan 2015
Yes I remember their being talk that Duron was out bc he basically quit trying/going to class. Not being sarcastic when I say this, but I wondered how he planned on making it at Bama (which has the best academics outside of Vandy and Florida in the SECond). Too bad his father didnt impress upon him more the importance of a good education. He could have been a great Buckeye.

Competition sounds good to me. Just makes you work harder.

I believe Jackson is a sophomore currently, BUT for some reason he's not listed on the roster. (there aren't italics on a cell phone)
Comment 04 Jan 2015
Naperville, maybe so but that's the most many of us want to pay for a football game. Is the final 4 championship game ticket really that much? If they have to sell 60000+ NCG tix in 10 days I am surprised they will be able to do so. I wonder how many are going to be consumed by corporate entities without loyalty to either team?
Comment 04 Jan 2015
Agreed. Sounds funny but I am almost more encouraged by Meyer and co. signing 3 and 4 star kids when there are supposed bigger fish available. The coaches signed top classes repeatedly over the last few years so to me there offers to "lower" ranked players go off eval and potential. I think we can all agree that this group of coaches has the ability to develop and pick out talent (Lee, Elflein, Powell, Boren, Cardale, JT).
Comment 04 Jan 2015
Lets see how big of a ratings jump some of these guys make before saying "underrated." (Although I am inclined to agree) Josh Norwood and Dre'mont Jones should both jump quite a bit. Maybe Carlton Davis and Rashad Berry but I don't know who else will. I doubt the rating services restore Gibson's higher ranking but I suppose him, Burrell and Burrow could jump also.
Comment 04 Jan 2015
Thought about going up the road to Jerryworld and seeing the Bucks big game. Unfortunately, I find the $470 ticket to be a bit ridiculous. Can't believe that is face value...c'mon NCAA? How do they expect to ever win any court case against the players? Amateur athletics my a@!, I can understand $110/150 "premier game" seats but anything north of $250 (stretching) makes my couch look awfully good. I'll stick to watching home games at the Shoe and pass on the once in a lifetime experience.

The only caliber anyone should be concerned with comes in a 12 gauge silver shell. And King Cardale already sent Bama the warning shots.
Comment 17 Dec 2014

The BIG teams have the $.  I am just glad to see someone finally ponying up and putting down some $$$ for coaches.  Even if the Wolverines are the ones who start the trend, hopefully the rest of the mediocre underachieving teams in the BIG follow suit.
