I just watched this on youtube, very good. I was born in the 70's and I had no idea about this. Thanks for the education.
Great write up, Coach Ryan is doing an amazing job and has the WrestleBucks culture on point. My best friend from high school is now a High School wrestling coach, he talks about Ryan with a reverence.
RIP Buckeye, praying for the family
Getting the Skull early is like hitting a double leg take down against my hated rival - The Offseason.
Prayers for the Herbstreets.
Sick and tired of folks talking about Cardale's maturity. Just watch.
I too, hate the off-season.
I am not a pilot, just a knuckle buster / aircraft maintainer.
Both are well worth it, Normandy was a special experience. It was awesome to walk through there and talk with my son about the people and history.
He even got to do a geographic survey with a historian trying to pin point the location where Sgt York rose to fame.
I have made several trips to Verdun, the site is quite amazing. Great write up.
I'm never one to tell folks they can't or shouldn't drop their opinions, my point was that trying to argue someone into a different opinion rarely works. Present a side or evidence and then let reason take over (if there is any.)
I find it interesting that it's a possibility that Sandusky may have been too old (considering Paterno's age and that Sandusky was the heir apparent) but there is no possibility of culpability. I am not here to condemn Paterno, mostly because he is dead, but in my mind he is also not absolved based on the fact that he was an old man who kinda did something but couldn't do more because he needed more information.
I really appreciate the nod to Airpower! I am an Airman (acft mx) with 23 years in and counting. I pulled a lot of time on 135's and about 5 years on F-16s. Tanker TOADS are quiet professionals who do a job that largely goes unappreciated. A tip of the cap to the maintainers and aviators in our sister services as well.
This is a false logic loop. Paterno only had two options, do nothing or be a vigilante? I am not passing judgment one way or the other, but if he was enough of a threat that they retired him, letting him back in is criminal negligence. I hope all of the comments in this thread get nuked. Good article with good information, but neither side is going to change their stance so beyond stating a position is fruitless.
Know thy enemy
Thanks for the write up! I have not seen any video on Stiebers match; does he look uncomfortable or is he lacking confidence due to the repairs? I can't imagine it's a conditioning issue...
No DV but you are correct (I disagree with you ) Coach Fickle may not be head coach material (most are not) but he is at the very least what he is. DC at one of the most prestigious football schools in the country.
This prayers from this side of the world
Thanks for the insight and update Middle. I hope the young man achieves his goals & dreams
As a rule i would refer to a coach at any institution by their title.
Jim H is nothing if he is not consistant. If wieird is your normal, your normal is weird. You cant out run poo character or low reputtion for long.
one tiny glimpse into the dedication these Soldiers have can be had by looking at the things they sacrifice to have the honor of doing this job. They give up many freedoms above and beyond those already surendered by the rest of the their military brotheers and sisters. Tradidition and ceremony are important, but the depth and value of their service is without measure
i posted this before i saw the link below that elaborates on some of the sacrifices, its no accident taht it is a life long commitment
I like the way the Squirrel does not shy away from the hard truths
There are teams that don't have a recruiting year as strong as the Buckeyes had in one day today
No baggage and little in the way of expectations; just making it on talent and a driving hunger. The road won't know what hit it.
Stud may be an O'line coach for life 68. On one hand you could say "coaches get promoted under Urban" and then you have Coach Fickle... like most things, time will tell
