The sarcasm font doesn't seem to be displaying on my final paragraph. It was entirely intended.
Everywhere really. It feels like Columbus in the sense that seemingly every public TV is tuned to the Buckeyes when they're on. I've always enjoyed Fox and Hound in Beavercreek because of their setup in the main room. Buckeyes will be on the big projectors and essentially every other game transpiring around the country will be on the smaller televisions that line the wall. Love your Buckeyes, but they're beating Hawaii by 40 and you're wondering how Missouri is faring against Alabama or how Arizona is holding up against Oregon? Just turn your head left or right. Pretty solid.
However, now that I'm sober and no longer drink, I watch it with my family and whatever friends may be in town on the 60" in my parents' living room. Great memories there.
Also, there is a great little place on North Main called The Harem in which I've had fun at on Gameday. I highly recommend it.
I thought I recall reading a Hurry Up eluding to the fact that he didnt earn an offer, aka, didn't have what the coaches wanted. As messed up as it is to pull someone's scholarship for visiting another school, it doesn't sound like he cleared that visit with Dantonio and Co. When you aren't a highly sought after prospect, it's probably best to not bite the hand that feeds you. To be perfectly honest, I think Dantonio used the visit as an excuse to pull his offer because he regretted offering in the first place.
Classy move by OSU, but I hope Cupp doesn't take the place of an Antwuan Jackson, ect.
Apparently another thread was created at the same moment as mine was. Mods, do as you will. Do. As. You. Will.
yeah but did you die?
What's scarier is when he gets the ball with half of an opposing defense barreling down on him. That's when the X-Brax kicks in and he shakes all of them. Not only is he fast, but he is ellusive. I don't know if there is another player in college football that makes guys miss like Braxton Miller.
If I don't find out by dawn why you were locked up, I'm going to set the building on fire.
Wilson came into this program as a very, very fast player. How he pans out after this past season's injuries? Im not too sure.
I've never been a big fan of his in regard to his on-field performance. I believe he is an extremely fast athlete with some major gifts. However, I don't believe he is a football player. Unless he is absolutely wide open and uncontested, he doesn't make plays happen. He isn't elusive and has almost zero power to break tackles.
On the other hand, he wasn't really given a fair shake coming into the program. The hype around him regarding his speed and "flipping" him from Oregon was enormous. Everyone (admittedly, myself included) expected "The Next Percy Harvin" from his first snap. It would have been nearly impossible to live up to that hype.
I would LOVE to be wrong in my analysis and have him have a big, breakout season this year.
Sidenote: Can we all agree to stop using the term "The Next Percy Harvin" to describe every player to line-up at H-Back for the Buckeyes under the Meyer Administration?
Two years and some change here. Had 4 years before and took back control of my life. Thought I had it all figured out. I could drink and use casually. In 90 days, I was back in jail and my entire life was ruined. Had to start all over. Re-embraced the program again and never looked back. Just did an 8th step yesterday. My life is wonderful today as a result of the program. I have a wonderful home, a wonderful family and I'm back in school with a 4.0 GPA looking at taking my LSAT for law school. Blessed.
Agreed. The "family friendly" music standards tend to contribute to the lackluster feel inside of the stadium. I, too, have seen players complain about it. I was at the B1G Championship Game this past year, the music was much better. I could visibly see players and attendees alike getting into it.
Furthermore, in regard to the original forum topic, I would go back to last season when I was in AA Deck and personally tar and feather whoever it was that was responsible for playing The Spice Girls "Wannabe" when we the Virginia Tech defense was murdering our offense.
Thats that ish I don't like.
This is assuming he stays healthy. Love Braxton, love his heart, love what he has done for the school and for his teams. But the dude is extremely injury prone, dating back to high school. Would love for your statement to be true, because the man flat out deserves it. But I have very serious doubts.
I'll be there. Still shocked that Kid Rock is opening. Were the Black Keys or just about anyone else unavailable?
I think you may be correct about this. However, I know that OSU pays their coaches well and they sure aren't doing this for a needed payday. I also know enough about the world to know that the coaches, most likely, wouldn't go to some small school a thousand miles away (in extremely fertile recruiting country) to help with a camp out of the kindness of their hearts. Im certain, as you said, this is a recruiting move.
If satellite camps are going to be utilized by Meyer's in-conference competition, it would probably be a safe assumption that Meyer will be following suit. That is, unless, he believes that the Ohio State program is large enough to not require such "underhanded" tactics. Which it very well may be. Time will tell!
Yeah, I'd like to see how many OSU coaches attend and if The Pope (Meyer) attends as well. I was wondering what the distinction was between this and what Harbaugh and Franklin are doing. Thanks for the insight!
I think his thoughts are as follows:
"Should they be illegal? Yes. Are we going to start doing them until they are? Yes."
In all seriousness though, if this has been discussed, feel free to delete this thread, modz. I looked around a bit and didn't see anything blatantly discussing this.
I hate this.
Urban isn't college football's highest paid coach. Saban still tops him in salary. He is, however, the highest paid coach in the B1G. Not trying to throw shade.
