Can he make free throws?
Can he make free throws?
We have like 87 kids who could get drafted next year... some scouts have probably taken up permanent residence outside the WHAC.
Wow this is a resurrected post.... I will be VERY surprised if he doesn't choose that place up north with the weird helmets. If he should choose us I would be happy but I think the staff is focused on a couple of guys they rate ahead of him.
Well again just my opinion but I don't agree with what the NFL has done with Josh Gordon while they let guys like Greg Hardy play..... weed just doesn't bother me. Tobacco cigarettes are far more dangerous but they can smoke the cancer sticks until body parts start shutting down. On a Sunday or Monday after a game a trip to the ice tub or jacuzzi, a massage and an herbal joint would be way more affective in easing the pain and promoting recovery than a bunch of team doctor approved pain pills and needles full of synthetic man made junk that actually can mess you up more long term.
It's that time of year..... ugh. The season can't get here soon enough. If it is just weed though I mean 1 full game is more than enough.. heck 1-2 quarters or an entire day with Marrotti kicking their ass would be enough but that's just me.
Yeast makes sense because his Dad went there. If Urban wants them (Ohio kids) Urban will get them. However I do see the point being made as to why the other B1G schools who could REALLY use these guys can't seal the deal with them but Stoops can. I'm guessing that Vince Marrow plays a huge part.
They are really good at Fantasy and Fiction over there.
If that was the most pathetic post the one posted right before it (see link below) had to come in a close 2nd.... holy crap what kind of drugs do they have up there?????
7 games back with 62 to go you have to believe that New York will acquire a pitcher themselves by Friday.
Did Toronto not have enough hitting already??? Send Stroman and Norris to Cincy and they might listen!
Look I'm not a huge Saban fan... heck my NFL team is Miami so that might give you an indication as to how I feel. That being said I probably wouldn't rip him and call him an insecure little man...(even if he is) Throughout history many of the greatest leaders who were considered to be alpha dogs were actually ridiculously insecure men underneath their bravado and stoic facades. They are often antsy and always looking for the next challenge to go conquer it's just part of their DNA. The man can flat out coach and he can lead.... at the college level anyway.
I thought he should have went to Texas myself but it is always interesting to get a glimpse of the behind the scenes shenanigans that go on in sports. Personally I hope they kick butt as they usually do and then completely choke again in their next big game.... there's a reason why I enjoyed the Sugar Bowl even more than the Championship game.
A huge boom BOOOOOOOOOOM from the dirty South!!! Urban can not be stopped!
My years living in Florida included the Tressel Championship over Miami.... even then the Gainesville faithfull thought they (Gators) were better than all of them and up in Talahassee they still believed that Bowden was the Governor of Florida. Needless to say I am not one for wearing team apparel unless it's a hat but that year I wore the crap out of my OSU gear.
** The best part though was that there were a few bars scattered throughout the state where BuckeyeNation would show up in droves and outnumber the FSU/UM/UF fans and the reaction when the Ohio native bartender at one of the establishments would turn the volume up on the Buckeye game and leave the 3 Florida school games on mute was priceless.
If Strong doesn't bring them back to prominence and they continue to struggle that may happen but I think if they give Strong 2-3 more years they will make it back. The question is how stable will the conference itself remain during that time with a soft commish and lots of turmoil and angst within the ranks.
It's kind of like when Notre Dame tried to say a million different ways that they would have lost money if they joined the B1G a few years back and gave up their deal with NBC when every single financial expert who pushed the numbers proved that they would have actually made more money. The only thing they would have lost was their pride and more football games.
That being said imagine adding a ND and TX/OK to the western division.... would be awesome!
Um while I see what you are getting at with that comment Texas would have went the Pac12 route and A&M and Oklahoma would have gladly parted ways (possibly the B1G) as Texas wasn't/isn't just vehemently despised by Nebraska but almost every other institution in the B12. They kind of have that Notre Dame arrogance/delusion that college football begins and ends with them. Everybody who thought Oklahoma and Texas would be a package deal were wrong back then as Texas had no intentions of being an equal partner in any conference it would have joined they wanted more... they wanted to be the Bully on the block just like they are in the B12.
So tomorrow Mike Miller will get cut and then LeBron James will re-sign him correct?
In what sport???
That graphic could only be better if they took the Wisconsin "W" and turned it upside down for the M.
There was no doubt whoever won the Sugar Bowl would go on to win the Championship. Oregon could have put a 100pts on the board against FSU it just didn't matter. Probably why I have re-watched the Sugar Bowl 3 or 4 times and the Championship only once.
One of the prospects told reporters right after FNL that LeCounte had verballed but then EVERYBODY went out of their way to poo poo that... but some still believe there was a "silent verbal".
Edit: just found the story lol... that prospect was actually Wade himself.
Bingo!!! Last year Urban wanted to revamp the defensive backfield and get the linebackers back to being the Silver Bullets of old.... mission accomplished on both fronts! This year you would have to believe that he would love to finally get a full fledged rotation going along the D-Line which is one thing we did not have last year.
They have Jack Del Rio's son who they don't even know if the NCAA will let him play competing with the other 2 guys.... so if I were them heck I'd freakin sign 3 or 4 QB's and pray that one of them pans out. If you have to take a flyer on a guy a Texas kid is not a bad bet (Kenny G)
Question would be if this D-line class ends up with Bosa, Hall, Cooper, Barrow and Jackson will this be the best D-Line haul of all-time for OSU? Not that Larry Johnson hasn't already proven himself but whatever award goes to the top recruiter he would get my vote!
Over at the 247 sports website they let selected recruiting guru's from across the country "Crystal Ball" (predict) where they believe a kid will commit. Birm is one of those guru's.
The class will probably round out at 23-24 commits and Jackson would make 20. Would almost make you think that Urban and the staff wouldn't mind if some of their targets took their time to choose even up until signing day but then again some kids might look at it as if they wait there might not be any room left for them. Makes for an interesting dynamic and fall practice hasn't even begun yet. #BeingOnTopofTheWorldProblems
