Losing a scholarship wouldn't ruin his life.  Making him responsible for his actions is a better life lesson.  Every time he made that loan payment, it would remind him what a dbag he was.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

BAH!  Miichigan State or Penn State can easily fill that void.  The thought of those arrogant dillitant fans/alumni/cash cows being so butt hurt about being dominated by the Buckeyes that they drop scholarship football and join the Ivy League is just too delicious.  Its a better fantasy than me and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Comment 09 Oct 2014

I have a copy of Urban's Utah playbook.  The Pivot/Follow-Pivot is prominent in it too.  Its interesting to look at the development of Urban's offense when reading these articles on 11W.

Comment 08 Oct 2014

We have already started down that road. Just look at how the price of season tickets has skyrocketed because of that same corporate groupthink. And the justification for tiered pricing on tickets was an idea stolen directly from the University of Michigan.

Comment 03 Oct 2014

There probably is some truth to the weasel whine that LLLLLLLLLLoyd actually started the decline with his semi-retired approach to recruiting inhis last few years.  BUT, since he is the #2 Michigan man of the modern era, THAT still doesn't  reduce the schadenfraude.

Part of Boyd Crowder being the greatest bad guy on TV is that he's facing off against TVs greatest lawman: Raylan Givens.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

Kadams not a unit used on the website.  However, Sallah says that its about 72" or 2 yards.   

Comment 26 Sep 2014

Frimel, thats the website I used for the conversions.  Good find.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

Thanks to a website called sports-reference.com, I actually was able to get you an answer.  Senator Iron Testicles' punters punted for a total of 23,747 yards during his tenure.  That translates to 13.50 miles.  Or 71,241 feet.  Or 154,892 inches.  Or 11,873.5 fathoms.  Or 213,723 hands.  Or my favorite 47,494 cubits.

Thats HIgh Street after his dream comes true.  Or Lexington. :D

Comment 23 Sep 2014

"Sidenote: I know it's the "in" thing to note what a maniac beast-builder Marotti is but until this team shows me something that resembles tough, physical football on a consistent basis again, count me among the unimpressed. We're a finesse team right now. Bunch of scatbacks and guys who don't tackle very well."

Thats not on Mariotti, thats on that gawd-awful offense Urban runs.  I HATE HATE HATE HATE the spread just for this reason.  Its a finesse offense that works best when you have the less talented team.  When your players are bigger, stronger and faster, you should line up and physically jail-house lover the other team.  As for the defense, I blame the one constant thats been there thoughout the time of the degeneration of the Silver Bullets....Mr Fickell.

Comment 23 Sep 2014

I would seriously, probably stop watching college football.

Comment 23 Sep 2014

Grandparents?  Hell, I'M a grandparent!  The wolverweasels won those mythical NCs when MY Grandparents were kids! That means for most of you whippersnappers, its your Great-Great Grandparents!

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Screw the rivalry and screw their self entitled fans.  I keep saying that I want them so beaten down and so demoraized that they drop scholarship football and leave the Big Ten for the Ivy League.  TOSU and the B10 will be just fine if MSU, PSU, Wiscky and the Cornholers all regain their National profile.  We can then turn our hate on PSU or directly replace the rivalry with Notre Dame.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

BAH!  We need the conference to get better.  SO lets have MSU and Penn State and Maryland and Nebraska and Wisconsin and Iowa be relevant.  As for the wolverweasels?  I hope they fall so far that they decide its not worth it and drop scholarship football and join the Ivy League.  There is nothing that would make me happier than to see those entitled, spoiled, arrogant fans fade to nothingness.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

The same reason you don't like Uncle Drew is the same reason tOSU fans do like him.  We like HIS version of the truth.  I know it always gives ME warm fuzzies in my tummy.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Thank you grammar nazi.  I wrote that on the fly. But I fixed it for you.  You can untwist your panties now.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

My wife asked me what I was reading this morning as I read Drew Sharp's article.  I said, "I'm reading an article on Schadenfreude."

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Really???  WTF do you think a screen pass is?  Its a slow developing play.  Just like a draw play or a delay.  What you want in that situation is a quick slant thrown into the area vacated by the blitzers.  But that takes experienced presnap reads from BOTH the QB and the WR.  This edition of the Buckeyes currently has neither.  I'm willing to bet that Corey Smith failed at least twice with this.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Does everyone forget that they did call one and JT overthrew it?  Reading this board AND the other quality tOSU board I read, its readily apparent why Columbus was known as the "Graveyard of Coaches" until the toughest hombre to ever wear a whistle took the job.  In other words, some of you need to take a chill pill.  Yes, the Buckeyes lost.  But most of the problems were because of the inexperience, not because Urban is lazy or whatever other troll comment you can find.  Experience and coaching can still get them to improve.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I responded to the statement that they needed to call a screen, implying they didn't.  I was just pointing out the inaccuracy of that implication.  If someone is trying to make an argument, and they base it on an untruth/half-truth, regardless the quality of the rest of the argument; they lose all credibility in the debate.

There are LOTS of play calls to neutralize pressure.  Hell, better blocking at the point of attack on RUNNING PLAYS is just as effective.  Some would argue that when your OLine is struggling, that road grading is a better way to get the most out of a young mistake prone OLine.
