Why don't they point the investigative lens and holier than thou judgement towards the coaches and universities that will not let players transfer by releasing from scholarship? I would like to hear in depth the rationale and defense for Washburn not letting Pierre Desir go be closer to his wife and kids. Then someone take that rationale and defense apart. What about the St Joe's coach and Obrien? Why don't these folks put the microscope on the character of these coaches and admins rather than trash folks like Tressel and publish unsubstantiated innuedo?
I like the Black Keys and Ohio Players suggestions as an addition to keeping Hang on Sloopy as 4th Quarter song . I have thought for a long time that we need some fresh material for the next generation, especially considering many of the players don't have the same taste in music. If the purpose is to get the crowd and the team jacked up, we need to find some things that are relevant to them, All the lights would be cool for night games for sure,.
The author isn't worthy to write about his subject. I try to never click on the anything at SI or comment there even when outraged. A better revenge is to give low reviews to the author at places like Amazon.
I just added a one star review and you weren't kidding, there were some brutal (and funny) ones there. Wish could have given it a negative star but they make you give it one to comment. Thanks for the link.
I stopped watching ESecPN unless there is a game I absolutely want to see on it. No sportscenter, no GameDay, no BS analyst stuff, no extra BBall/football games, etc. If everyone stopped watching then ratings go down and hits it in the pocketbook. Extra bonus is I get to spend more time reading up on articles and gametime stuff here.
Dump SI & ESPN the Magazine. Donating my SI subsciption renewal money to Respect the Basement instead.
Plus don't go to SI or ESPin websites when they post inflammatory buckeye stuff, when you go read it and comment, they get pagehits for advertising money. They purposefully post stuff to get us fired up because know will drive up traffic.
I think can have 9 AC so these left. got any candidates?
-Pat Perles, KC Chiefs son of George Perles
-Joe Gilbert, Illini, used to coach Toledo & Houston
-Lecharles Bentley OLINE academy
-Bruce's grandson? Robiskie's dad?
-Stan Hixon, Bills WR coach?
-think Meyer might coach here?
Ironic considering the legends verses liars shirt, but this is a classy letter:
Contact BTN page said it was WOW in Columbus doing it. I'm WOW customer so whoever working there having a bad day or must be intoxicated, incompentent or that inattentive.
the entire body must cross, close but no cigar. it was a legit play.
huhhh??? Urban Meyer had 30+ players charged with crimes at Florida.
I've been to every B1G stadium but new Minnesota & Nebraska as well as NC & bowl games. We come in Fridays in RV, stay the entire weekend, and get out and about to look around campuses.
Last year's Iowa people were about the nicest I met anywhere (and the pre-game flyover was awesome). Only one jerk during the game and even the Iowa people were annoyed by him and told him to get a grip. Illini this year were also pretty good people.
Hands down the worst fans we have met on our away game trips were the Penn State 2005 night game. Pretty much everyone under the age of 50 were jerks the whole weekend and we did not feel safe enough to see their campus. It just ranged from idiots picking fights in stands, large groups of PSU students starting fights in parking lot with small groups, throwing mud at RV, and just acting like general d-bags all around. It pretty much was sad, because the game atmosphere itself was electric and the place was rocking for the whiteout. that part was as impressive at it gets in college football.
Wisky wasn't as bad as PSU. It was year their band got suspended and while we were going around campus they were no where near as bad as their reputation.
That being said, we have our own reputation for arrogance and probably bring out the worst in others. at home games and when interacting with the other fan base on the road, I probably overcompensate for some obnoxious OSU fans and go out of my way to be polite and friendly.
How about pepper johnson?
Pepper Johnson for DC when Heacock retires. Heacock and Tressell this year with ST earned right to retire gracefully. Vrabs needs more years of coaching experience.
either UAB is backing out since play Ole Miss and SoCarolina the 2 weeks prior or UCF meant 2013 as have a hole in that years schedule.
need more OL recruits!
Yes, it had gotten that bad:
7.5 pt underdog AT HOME
Last time Bucks played at home, they were booed for an offensive offense.
Program contunually trashed and rehashed by Mark May, ESeCPN, SI, most major outlets who are silent on Suitgate, Oregon recruiting service payments for recruits, one game suspensions at Miami after the Yahoo piece.
NCAA suspensions, added suspensions, and weekly when's the other shoe gonna drop?
Collapse at Nebraska.
Topped off with Wisky beating both #1 Football & BBALL the year before.
It was an emoitional release after all the negativity of the last 6 months. Besides, that was a wild finish.
How many other programs send as many players to the NFL, have players make coaching their profession, and get their degree to even qualify? I know pie in sky for all of them and Troy Smith was just because he's not doing much and seems like what everyone is compared to him that we bring in-don't even know if he is good coaching material. I'd settle for one like Bentley as until recently our line has been soft.
Tupa was a reach but I picked him for the Gruden comment and that he went home after a 19 year NFL career. Brecksville High is a long way from D1A.
My point is I want Luke afforded the opportunity to put together an offensive staff that can develop talent faster as my blood pressure can't take so many of the sputtering offensive outputs. I don't know if I'll ever accept Urban even if win an NC.
Plus remember Ohio seems to have been the home of many big time coaches.
Shazier was killin folk!
Get behind the true Buckeye Luke and forget about Urban legend. I'll take the guy that stood with us in adversity and doesn't quit. He is growing into job each and every week. Let him get his own staff and see him blossom. Watch former players and Buckeye Nation rally around him as recruiting locks down Ohio again.
Mix in some new Buckeye blood with the staff:
LeCharles Bentley for OL coach? (See PD article about him and Boone).
Tom Tupa OC or QB coach?
Troy Smith QB coach? (just a lark here, but can't hurt recruiting with a Heisman and he seemed like was a leader).
Urban had over 35 guys arrested in his tenure at Florida. Remeber when used to b* at cooper for that and how HErbie says we shouldn't recruit "guys like that".
Dan Mullen & Tim Tebow were just as big a part of success as Urban was with Zooks recruits.
Carmen Ohio at the end with entire field covered was amazing! I hope Tressel sees this since he started this tradition.
End of Penn Satte game was a bit pathetic. Illinois got paternoized with some non-reviews of close Illini plays, a quick PSU snap before trapped interception, a phatom pass interference on 4th down. Got to think trying to get JoePa 409 before PSU hits the meat of its schedule with hopes he will now retire?
