The necktie is a salute to Joe.

Wonder if their white pants have a brown stripe.

According to the Bengals no one is allowed to document, via video, accounts of those full-team drills.and Pryor posted images from their recent minicamp to one of his social media accounts Monday afternoon.

Bengals spokesmen said: "If I'm [another team], I have to think hard about signing him or else he might give out valuable information of theirs, too."

I think you will see Marshall and Wilson mostly at receiver. Dunn backs up Zeke. Samuel at H. Of course there will be some playing around with this and injuries matter too. But the thing I know for sure is, YOU WANT SAMUEL ON THE FIELD.

Dodd has lost some gray matter along with his hair.

I remember when another highly touted QB decided to stay a Buckeye even though most pundits were saying sit a year and play for another school. It was Troy Smith who got the position over Justin Zwick. All Zwick had to say was that there are great opportunities presented to those in the Buckeye family outside of football.

Galloway was the first in a long line that started the phrase known in many circles as "Ohio State is wide receiver U".

If they win with that season ending gauntlet of MSU, TTUN, B1G championship, and two playoff games, they will be one of the best college football teams in history.

“1975-1976”

In fairness, Fred Taylor retired from coaching in 1976 at the age of 52. I remember him well and always watched his television show, and followed his career. I know with a fair amount of certainty that he was “disenchanted”, to say the least, with coaching after the 1972 brawl at Minnesota that left three Ohio State players hospitalized. Taylor always felt that the Ohio State administration and Big Ten should have pushed for more aggressive disciplinary action against those Minnesota players involved in that public mugging.

“I still kick myself for not quitting then because that’s what I felt I should do when nobody really even acted as though they cared,” Taylor said later. His heart for the game he loved was gone, and it was obvious.

What worries me is that it's damn near impossible for a football team to play at peak levels for 5 games in a row. It's human nature to think that your team mates will have the necessary intensity and focus when your mind and body is not responding at it's best. Then it's all too common to find that things are not clicking for a couple of other guys also, while your opponent is hitting on all cylinders.

Really want the Buckeyes to repeat, so my hope is that the team is just head and shoulders above everyone in college football and plays the last 5 enraged.

If you listened to Tom Herman's interview in Wednesday's Skull Session you will find that he thinks very highly of Mariota and his skill set.

I am torn between Miller and Jones.

I fully expected Braxton to lead us into the playoffs last year because he was the one guy who could make up for other team weaknesses and was electric. Defenses could not game plan for him. When he went down all I could say to my friends was to repeat the f word over and over.

On the other hand Cardale stretched defenses with that strong arm while being accurate and he doesn't go down with arm tackles. The running game with Zeke benefited and really took off. 

The loser here is JT. Great leader, solid everywhere in his game. But the two in front of him are just too dynamic.

Really liked this movie. The overall plot together with the conceptualizing of an existence in not one but two other dimensions of consciousness was unique. Also thought the visuals and audio were very good, the ideas stimulating and it held my attention despite its length. If I were to criticize anything it might be that McConaughey seemed to be overacting early on.

I have been quite loose with the DVs in the past and apologize to those that may have irritated me. Unless of course you posted a political opinion, then I wish I had more than one DV to give because only a moron football fan would think his political opinion is worth a damn!

The original video had the part where the ceremony was over but the President saw Archie as he was leaving, so he started it up again. I loved that part and you can catch it on Youtube at about the 16:25 mark:

"Houston is now my third-favorite team. (My second-favorite is whoever is playing Michigan, obvii.)"

But but DJ, don’t you want TTUN to return to greatness so we can return to those competitive games of yesteryear and maybe let the conference have more bragging rights?
