There are some recruits that when they say the Buckeyes are in the lead or are favorites to gain their commitment, I get excited about. I'm with Fromthe18. I'll think it a positive if were listed as leaders but I won't be as optimistic with this recruit until I hear those same words a few days before NSD.
Love Bennett but damn, he looked silly there. Hopefully he makes that tackle every single time this year.
The only way this can happen is if we have a true running back by committee. Even if he does, I don't expect it to be by more than one hundred yards. If he does, something needs to be reevaluated in our system.
To whomever is responsible for the "Cardale Comment":
Great points on perception. It does matter now.
To me a trap game implies a few things. First, that your team is rolling along well, maybe coming off of an emotional victory and is looking ahead to it's tougher competition. This implies that the team is overlooking a lesser yet quality opponent, in order to prepare for the marquee game.
By that definition I don't think Navy can be considered a trap game, primarily because it is the first game on the schedule. If these guys aren't focused and inspired to play their first game of the season after participating in Urban Meyer's summer workouts then we are recruiting the wrong type of competitors.
There is no reason to test him for consumption. This is a possession charge. If he was tested, there would have to be a subpeona and warrant obtained, unless he volunteered to do the test for them. In that case the funds would come out of Tracy's pocket for an unnecessary test.
He won't get tagged with possession.
Sir, I get what you think but I have seen more guys found guilty than not (by far) for similar situations. The laws are very protective of the rights of citizens of this country. They severely limit the intrusiveness of a search. The fact that .2 grams of cocaine was not found on his person only means that the officers like did a correct search for weapons. I have seen a lot of comments on this board about how Tracy couldn't possibly hide a bag of dope since he was hand cuffed. Well I have seen some handcuffed individuals do some wild and unexpected things, some of which make hiding dope look like child's play.
The medallion you saw around his neck had a razor blade embedded in it and is believed to have been the source of the stabbing.
Not every department can afford to place recording equipment in front of and in the back of every unit they possess. Most just have them in their DUI units or other speciallized unit that they deem necessary.
Searches for weapons don't always turn up other contraband on the body. I made a comment somewhere else about this in this long forum.
You do make some good points and the only two arguments I would offer is that you are untrained and your observations of the previous officers, who are not the officers involved in this situation, don't automatically transfer. Your thoughts about performance during activation of the sympathetic nervous system are on point.
The difference between Roby and Hyde and this case are pretty extensive in my opinion. The account of Hyde's situation stemmed from the reported "Victim" herself. Obviously, a bias version if ever there was one. The account of Roby was passed on from a secuirty guard/bouncer whom I hold nowhere in the same esteem as a law enforcement officer. Like I stated earlier, I am siding with law enforcement on this one until something contradicts what was reported.
I'm going to give benefit of doubt to the guy that has nothing to gain or lose in this situation. I'm not going to give benefit of doubt to the guy at that establishment of ill repute, that after being told to leave, decided to continue talking trash and fail to disperse as directed. I love the Buckeyes as much as any but not enough to take their side in a situation like this. If Tracy is innocent or if it is proven that there was some dishonesty on the officers part then I pray the truth comes out.
He doesn't have plausible deniability. He has constructive possession. The only way he gets out of that is with a plea or video evidence contradicting the officers claim that he searched the vehicle after subject number 1 left the vehicle.
Well a Terry pat is done exclusively for weapons. If you find contraband and know it to be that without manipulation, you can recover it. So missing Drugs on a pat down that isn't intended for drugs doesn't automatically shift burden of proof.
Well I doubt there were 50 officers present at the time of the melee that had eyes on every individual involved. You grab the primary aggressors and get the hell out hoping your actions influence others to think before they act in the future.
True, there is a remote chance that someone else could have left that behind before Sprinkle was placed in the car but it is standard operating procedure to search the vehicle after any occupant is removed from the back seat. He has officially moved to the lower tier of my favorite Buckeyes list.
First- Glad he was ok and that to this date and time there has been no additional fallout from this in the legal system.
Second- just because he is under the limit doesn't mean that alcohol can't still be the primary contributing circumstance. Alcohol affects everyone differently depending on their own personal tolerance. I've seen guys blow a .20 and function perfectly and then seen another that was a .05 and I would have thought their behavior would have been reversed.
Let all of us learn a lesson from this and really evaluate ourselves and the risks involved in drinking and driving. Regardless of the absolute cause of this wreck, being intoxicated at any level and having a wreck is not the type of perception our players need to portray.
I have to admit that that is an incredible likeness on the Tress Tat.
You know, I get that the skull is eating the Letter M. I just can't even see myself getting that M in that color scheme tattooed anywhere on my body. To have to look at that every day would have to be one of the worst tattoo mistakes anyone could ever make. When my mamma told me not to get a tattoo until I was 21, before I ran off to join The Corps, I envision it was to protect me from something like this. Nothing wrong with tattoos but they just lost the "Cool Factor" for me as I grew older. Never got one.
That was a civil response. I could learn from that.
This x1000. DJ your shitty self loathing everything is awful tone needs adjusting. You've come out of focus bubba.
Listen, kids say stupid stuff all of the time. I get that. It will be hard for me to let his comments about Columbus go. Obviously if he comes here, loves it and scores a few touchdowns against TTUN, I can be convinced to soften my stance.
For a moment I thought he was holding a straight razor and I was very intrigued! (/joking of course)
Wahh Iss Gah-Zeerah!
"It doesn't matter that I'm from Ohio, they still would love to have me down there and they told me to not be scared about making that trip down South."
This right here would turn me off and make me want to play that team (and coach) in a future game.
