Interesting read. Nice write up
Having grown up in tsun (before seeing the light to attend OSU right around the end of the Carr era), it's interesting/humorous to gauge how the
blue khaki fans' reason with having a crazy goofball for a head coach-especially in comparison to Meyer and his no nonsense professional demeanor.
At this point all the fans I know are totally drinking the "Harbaugh the Savior" kool-aid (which, why wouldn't they be I guess) but as soon as you bring up things like the no-shirt pics, or the Cowherd interview, or any one of the onion articles, they get super defensive and try to play it off like "Seriously? Who cares about some stupid [insert gaff here]? It's all about the product on the field!" And I get that; I guess I'm just glad we don't have to deal with an embarrassing uncle. And of course it helps that Meyer > Harbaugh
As I was just scrambling to screen grab pics to be the first to text out the news, I was saying pretty much exactly the same thing; I used to be anti- just from a traditionalist's stand point, but as long as it's just one game (and especially since it's against PSU-the self anointed "white out" kings) I'm cool with it. I'm sure the boys will be pumped up coming out under the lights as well! Go Bucks.
Did anyone else happen to see on espn's news ticker on Friday or Saturday they labeled Stoneburner as a RB when reporting he was being activated? Sure confused me at the time, but now it seems it was just a classic error
This would be pretty insane considering my little brother has his undergrad from ASU, his masters from LSU, my dad went to and is still a season ticket holder at Oklahoma, and I of coarse am a Buckeye alum! Would sure make for an intense holiday season!
How does Coombs not have a wikipedia page?? I want to know more!!
I have this pic as my iPad lock screen. Gets me every time
Went from -13 to -10 after the suspensions were announced
Agreed. Even looks a bit like TP
For sure. I happened to be living in Kalamazoo a few years back and was at the WMU hockey game which was his first public address to the students/fans. He came out on skates with a hockey stick and pumped up the crowd (which has no football tradition to speak of) to a level that got me excited for Bronco football! Now he's no Urban Meyer, but his future is certainly bright
And then, with all 3 on the field, Jalen Marshall takes the first snap on an end around and bombs it downfield. Boom.
Gotta love the malaprops
Dane is unfortunately no longer
Yeah for sure. My first thought with this sort of thing in the NFL is, 'damn these no guarantee contracts.' But I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the full support thrown Jeff's way. Good luck getting back, wishing nothing but the best!
Though I tend to agree with you about a Non-Power 5 team getting in, I do have to say that Boise's schedule is decent enough that if they blow through Washington, at BYU, at Virginia in the non conference enroute to an undefeated season, mixed with only one or two teams with 1 or fewer losses... Then maybe.
Yeah it had me thinks too; what a great pitch and counter to early playing time elsewhere.
Nice! I flushed (the brand spanking new at the time) iPod video down the toilet in Steeb Hall in '06
I hadn't heard about this at the time, but after a search it looks that, as of late August last year, FSU and the POTUS had still not been able to match their schedules up before the start of last season. Too bad for those kids who earned the truly unique experience. --Also an interesting note, Ohio State joined 2010 Auburn as the only school in the last 12 years to make the visit after March.
A lot of drops out there today
So many karats you'd think they were all vegetarians
I'm just nitpicking, and I know it's not really the point, but I don't think you can call the Big 12 the worst of the Power 5, not as long as the ACC is still a thing. Baylor, TCU, K-State, Oklahoma, etc. vs FSU, and... Clemson? am I missing anyone?
That being said, yeah sure TCU, it's a bummer FSU went undefeated because there's no way a first year committee keeps out the defending champs as the only no loss team. But maybe just don't blow huge leads in the 4th quarter and you wouldn't have to be crying in April. Get over it and move forward. (And for the record, I think all this pissing and moaning reflects a lack of accountability and will resonate through the Frogs this year resulting in a dumpster fire of a season)
I've watched a lot of prep highlight films over the years, a lot of good ones and a lot of HS stars that were never heard from again. Adrian Peterson had a look of an all-time great.. But this Walker kid, I'm telling ya, there's something special about him. If you haven't watched his tape yet I encourage you to do so; I've never seen a combination of talent like his.
I don't play golf, but I can certainly drink some beers in the clubhouse to support the cause.
It seems like OSU played another game down in your neck of the woods recently as well...
Sounds like this kid's mind is as sharp as his snaps! Welcome aboard.
