Guard Papa Johns, really? Here's another silly ad, "Better players, better team, Purdue"!
Of course you are correct! And it's not the other unproven parts of this team that is a concern it's the production at the QB position. You can't take a Heisman QB candidate off a team and say they will still be National Championship contenders.
I realize that most people desire to concentrate of the positives in life, but there are times when you need to deal with the realistic. Inexperienced young men are going to make errors and in close games those errors can and will translate into a losses. The Buckeyes will be involved with many close games this year.
Hyde is the model for every back, "this next play might be my last and it's going to mean something".
In my mind if this was not a serious concern OSU coaches would directly say that physicians tell them not to rush activity on this kind of rehab. I am hearing too many other quotes not to be concerned.
You have to know that there is something wrong here, and I fear the coaching staff is dealing with issues of how to get the most out of a less than successful shoulder surgery and how to get that shoulder through an entire season.
The reason I am in a funk about this situation is that Braxton is the singular reason I dream of a successful season, B1G championship, and beyond.
I voted Darron Lee. Dude will have to do it all. Run stopper, pass defender, and sure tackler.
God it's so funny how these athletes think they are going to take the ice water like real men but wind up yelping like a little girls.
Betcha Greg has a problem with Alcohol.
I do think this does has to do with Title IX, funding and the Feds. But lets be clear Waters was the "Director" and was well paid to understand the legalities, policies, workings and associated implications of his actions and non-actions within his domain. And at his level I will guarantee you that he was well schooled in Federal and State policies and procedures.
It's strictly business in the end, and you get fired when you don't address problems in an efficient and timely manner or when you make errors in judgement and fail to fix problems that might affect the organization as a whole.
Personally I do have to laugh at "he was working to fix the culture within the band". Sort of akin to George Wallace fixing racism in Alabama but wanting to proceed more slowly.
Best of luck Kyle and THANKS!
I'd give Gibson every chance to play QB in Urban's offense. He has all the skills except a good long ball to stretch defenses. Coach him up or send him to see Whitfield and you might really have something special.
I guess I am practically alone here but I care more for what is best for the team and their chances for a National Championship.
Why does anyone want to play the greatest rivalry game in sports potentially (very often) right before a B1G championship game and two other playoff games against the best the country has to offer? The players in the GAME themselves have said that everything else pales in comparison. To a man they speak of how emotionally and physically spent they are afterwards. Wayne Woodrow always commented on how difficult it was to get the guys up for more that a couple of games, and that bowl games were often anti-climatic.
To hell with tradition I want my Buckeyes up where they belong, at the top of the college football world, and as often as possible. Do whatever helps them achieve it!
I was shocked by his admiration for Samuel. Pretty early for that kind of acknowledgment. Kid has a tremendous future before him.
When Urban said Tim Tebow was one of the top 2 toughest athletes he had ever been around, anyone else figure that John Simon was the other one?
I'm too much of a wreck after the Michigan game to do anything including yard work. Maybe it's my age but I was in better shape after a football game when I played in one.
I am an older man with a business background and I've seen far too many guys like Waters. These inflexible relics refuse to accept that society grows and that many poor behaviors become no longer acceptable.
This pretty much sums up this situation:
Waters had been told to take sexual-harassment training after one case, the report said, but he didn’t.
Great offenses play with great precision. Great defenses play with great emotion.
The precision part keeps me up at night.
These quarterback gurus go back to the foundation and mechanics of playing the position and they are sought out because the athlete wants improvement for the next level. Most coaches on the other hand don't care for changing too much of anything as long as they are winning. (Think it's hard for most of these kids not to fall back into old bad habits during the fast paced pressure of games with QB coaches reluctant to harp on change).
Yep, one hell of a guy. Great article about him at Cleveland.com:
That right there is some funny stuff. TY DJ!
The only thing more stupid that pissing on Modell's grave is Modell's family saying they will press charges against the pisser.
Yep, and the youngsters want you to believe that Jeter is greater than Ruth or Gehrig because he faced the more advanced modern day pitchers.
What was the Roy Hall greatest Tressel story of all time?
For me it's been Wisconsin. For the last couple of decades the Wisky fans have not only relished taking the Buckeyes down but the team has done just that, and at critical times.
PSU with Franklin will be rapidly climbing the chart.
I like the noon kickoffs since I love college football and make plans around Saturdays (yes, family hates me!). Noon with the Buckeyes is usually the only game worth watching in that time slot and it starts the day off right. There seem to be great games at 3:30 and again at 7 or 8, and hopefully a west coaster at 11. Hell, put "College Gameday" in the lineup and I am a couch potato many Saturdays for 17 or 18 hours.
Did I mention that I love college football?
