Originally, it was said that ONLY Heisman winners get their number up there. Then "The Powers That Be" felt that a trailblazer like Bill Willis and an architect like Chic Harley (after all, he did build the 'shoe, right? ;) ) should be up there too. It was said that Chic Harley "WOULD'VE" won the Heisman if it existed back in the teens. Hey, come on, if the weasels can do that with NC's, tOSU can do that with Heismans.
Peter Jackson presents "The Lord of the Dolodale" trilogy. Might be my favorite trilogy of all time.
"Numbers mean nothing."
Says someone who has never been involved in sports at a high enough level apparently. To big time athletes, numbers mean ALOT. I mean, A LOT. Hell, in some sports like baseball, teammates support players with chatter, and call each other by their number, not their name. Players will spend thousands of dollars in the pros to buy a number from another player. Happens all the time in the NBA when players get traded to a new team.
I like the idea the weasels use of legacy numbers with special patches. But just like everything else they do, they screwed that up too with those gawd awful patches. But players have to earn them. a d the families of the retireee (or the player himself) should also have to approve the use.
Have you coached either of these guys or worked with them in any capacity? If not, how do you know which one has a higher ceiling? If you know the answer to that, why aren't you a QB coach for a college team?
Personally, I'm not going to try and diagnose a medical condition I know next to nothing about. I'm going to wait and see what develops. All this BS about Braxton is just that....BS. Wait and see. He might be a quick healer. Or he might be a WR. Who knows, but it does nothing except feed the trolls to argue about it now.
Playcalling is over rated. Given a choice, I prefer good execution to good playcalling.
I just laughed at Oregon. I'm old school. Football means toughness. Football means kick the crap out of the guy you line up across from. Oregon was in 2009 and still is in 2015 posers. There wasn't anybody in those hideous silver uni's who played defense tough enough to deserve to wear the scarlet and gray. And I laughed at those Oregon dillitants The whole reason they have to run that hurry-up bullshit is because they can't just line up and play football. So I just laughed at that crap. (OK, I was drinking).
And don't even think about combining the two routes. Cuz then you get this:
This is pure gold....like the confetti signifying a Buckeye win.
If by payback, he means we went on TO A BOWL GAME and beat Alabama and then went on to WIN ANOTHER NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, I'll take that payback every time. Thanks for playing d-bag.
If you know anything about the students and faculty at The Ginn Academy as well as its mission statement, then the press conference makes perfect sense. If you have ever worked in the inner city with high school kids, then the press conference makes perfect sense.
There are two ways to escape the inner city. Education or the gangster life. One, you escape from permanently. The other you also escape from permanently, but with a shorter life span. Its very important that these kids are provided role models. Cardale does that. Why anyone would not like that is beyond me and raises serious moral questions about them.
I have a six pack...its insulated.
Nothing to think about. OSU already qualified for the playoffs while they suck. Proving that we don't need them to be good. I hate the implication that the Weasels are like some friend that makes us stand up straighter. What? tOSU isn't relevant unless "The Game" means something? Eff that. I'd rather look back on the game the way Texas looks back on their rivalry with Texas A&M, but be able to say, "yeah, I remember when The Game meant something. But then the Weasels totally screwed that up." Besides, why would I ever want ANY program to be a flagship for my conference when they LOST AT HOME TO EFFIN' APPILLATCHIAN STATE!?
Totally, just totally disagree. There's is nothing fun ever about playing them. First, half the time, you have to travel to a shit-hole of a state and sit in a shit-hole of a stadium. Then, while you are there, you have to deal with the largest collection of people who represent the only justification ever for Euthanasia. There's nothing good about "The Game" except pictures of angry yet disillussioned fans. Screw 'em. (I can't say what I really want to say.)
Beat them so bad, and disillussion their fans so completely that they drop scholarship athletics. Then, they can go the DIII route and we can hand off responsibility for the ass kicking to our real little brother Mount Union. (Not the fake wannabe one UC)
BAH! Who gives a crap. I don't want them to be relevant. I don't want to give their fans any reason to come out from under all the rocks they are hiding under (because, clearly they must've been hiding since THE BUCKEYES STOLE THEIR ATTENDANCE CROWN!!!!!!!!). I don't want to give their fans any reason to be arrogant again. That loss to them in 2011 nauseated me. The near miss in 2012 did too, until I pointed out to them that they just lost to the worst tOSU team Urban would ever have.
Demoralize them! Force them back under their rocks! Make them decide the money isn't worth it...drop schollies and petition to join the Ivy League. (even better Get TURNED DOWN by the Ivy League go Div III and get their ass kicked by Mount Union!!!!!!
Totally disagree. In fact, why would we ever want a program that lost to Appalachian State ever be a flagship program of the big10? They are an embarassment. For the last 20 years, they've averaged more than 4 losses a year. They're Iowa for cripes sakes. And newsflash, we made the playoffs this year without them.
WE DON'T NEED THEM. Sparty works just fine thank you. And they're nicer people.
Proof that we don't want them to ever, ever be good again. Their fans collectively are just plain A-holes. M-man and the occasional outlier not withstanding. Screw em. Once Mr. Vinegar breath realizes he can't close on the good ones like Urban can and he'll bolt back to the No Fun League where he belongs.
Picture of Jim Harbaugh closing on Liam Eichenberg:
I remember sitting in the shoe listening to the fans chant "Hairball. Hairball" Screw him. There's no crowd noise rule anymore.
I've always maintained that we don't need the weasels to be good again. Hell, this year we made the playoffs while they fired their coach! We need 2 or 3 B10 teams to be credible national powers. PSU/WISC/MINN/MSU/MRYLD will do fine.
Having traveled to the Big OutHouse all through the Cooper years and listening to the arrogance of weasel fans, I hope Ohio State beats them so often by so many points that they give up, drop scholarship football and join the Ivy League. Good Bye and Good Riddance. GTFUOH. One of my favorite images OF ALL TIME:
My brother's best friend's sister's boyfriend's best friend's brother once had a drink with Lou Holtz's daughter. SHEESH. DON"T POST THAT YOU KNOW SOMETHING WHEN YOU DON'T.
90% of the National media don't know personal crap about athletes. Just look at the LeBron James narrative. As a High School basketball referee in northern Ohio, I know ALOT of people in basketball. Stuff tweeted/reported about LeBron by ESPN/NBA reporters was flat out wrong most of the time. Anyone who knew Dru Joyce knew more than Steven A Smith. BUT, I never posted anonymously that he was coming to Cleveland. (Despite telling my kids he might be back in February of 2013)
Again, point being Adam Schefter throws shit against the wall hoping something sticks and he can use it to add to his credibility. Or STeven A Smith style reporting.
See John Harbaugh tweet. Unless OP's last name is Harbaugh, or is a stealth account for the weasel athletic department, he/she doesn't know shit.
Pet Peeve: Posting crap on the internet like one actually knows WTF they are talking about and are just trying to stir the pot. Something I expect on places like Rivals or MGOBLOG or Cleveland.com. BUT NOT ELEVEN WARRIORS!!!!!!
Rant over. Merry Christmas
Imagine what Mark May would do.
Really? They are in the biggest game for this regime ever, he's a professional AND he has close personal relationships with his players. And you're worried about whether he's focused? Do you really have so little faith for Urban and his coaches?
Why would you think there's any idea who it will be? I could care less who it is now. Worry about that after DJ's funeral.
