Larry Johnson is a new addition to the OSU coaching staff this year. His resume speaks for itself as far as coaching and developing defensive linemen. Describe your relationship with Coach Johnson and what you are looking forward to most when it comes to learning from and playing under him.

I feel like this thread might be a joke...
 

Comment 28 Jul 2014

There's a car that always parks in the same parking garage as me that has 4 or 5 UM stickers on it and a UM license plate cover. I got tired of walking past the car everyday and reading the words "Go Blue". So a couple weeks back I took a piece of paper and wrote 'Go Bucks, Michigan Sucks!' on it with a red Sharpie and placed it on the windshield and then I slashed his tires and keyed his car...

Wait a second, 9Route's evil scheme is uncovered just as Gene makes a triumphant return to 11W? I'm a little suspicious about this...

Dang it, Uncle 9er, now I'm questioning everything...

Welcome Back, Gene!

You have to admit though, it's pretty amazing there's so many foreign women just waiting to meet me.

Wait, recruiting is supposed to be ethical?

I'm wondering why you think this stuff happens only in the SEC?

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Normally I wouldn't, but I figured it was some sock puppet video or something. But when I saw he comment count rising higher and higher, I was thinking, what the heck is that?

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Couple Observations:

1.) Why does UM's cover say "The Team" 3 times? Do they have 3 teams? Shouldn't it just say "The Stadium", cause we all know the Big House is the only thing they've got going for them.

2.) Minnesota's use of "Brick by Brick" is interesting. Butch Jones has been using that phrase to describe his rebuilding project at Tennessee ever since he got the job.

I avoided reading this thread till just now. I saw the title and was like "Why in the world do I wanna read about sock puppets?"

All I can say is this thread cracked me up. So many hilarious comments. So many good memories.

Recruiting is certainly an interesting thing to follow. People get antsy if a class isn't filling up fast enough. Then they get down if the class isn't full of highly ranked guys. But at the same time some explain the 3 star pick-ups by saying they're way better than their ranking and bring up past guys who were "only 3 star guys and ended up being studs".

My view on recruiting is pretty simple. I follow it pretty closely, but I don't get carried away with it. I get excited with each guy who commits, 3 star, 4, 5, long snapping 2 star, whatever. If the staff thinks a kid deserves a spot on the team, great. And if we miss on a guy, we miss on a guy. It happens.

And we all know you can't really tell how good a class is until several years later, you know, when those guys are actually playing college football.

The highly rated kid that was signed to play basketball for SMU, Emmanuel Muiday and has now signed to play in China instead due to amateurism issues and possible eligibility concerns, was a student at Prime Prep.

John Elway was an awesome player, no doubt. One of the best quarterbacks I've seen play.

But, if I saw the guy, I'd shake his hand, ask him for his autograph and if he'd take a picture with me, then I'd give him a swift kick to the groin on behalf of all Browns fans. It would only be right.

I saw Caliendo live a few years back. He does segments with each of his impressions and then for his 'grand finale' he had conversations between the characters. He'd go from Robin Williams, to George W. Bush, to Andy Rooney, to Morgan Freeman, to Bill Clinton, to Jerry Seinfeld and so many more. So funny.

That's what my grandma always said. She had to be home to watch "her stories" so she would plan her day around them.

Oh man, the fumbles...his fumble-itis made me nervous every time he touched the ball.
