Memorial Day - a day remember and give thanks to those (and their families) who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I'll give a shout out to Jeff Sharver, OSU 1980, KIA in Grenada. http://www.1dayforthekia.org/1st-lt-jeff-r-scharver/
It shows that the coaches really know what's going on numbers wise and that Birm et al on this site keep things quiet as requested by the staff. The late recruiting of Pridgeon is clear now as this was to fill Schmidt's place. It also shows that Munger's blood clot issue not going away was a surprise.
I suspect Bruce is not familiar with the Seinfeld show and completely missed the joke when Urban went into his Jerry-voice "who
is this are you?".
Body control is key. Devin is a national class high jumper (7'3" ish) which requires body control that is off the charts. I'd expect that when Devin retires he can be like LeCharles and set up his own training facility for WRs.
If true, sad to see him go. He will develop a solid offensive game and will remain an enforcer. As for the Trevor Thompson hyperventilation, who would turn down free feedback from the NBA?
ICWYDT. Would love to see Matta implement the Cavalier defense next year.
I like the expanded duration of spring practices. Having off days allow the kids to process more - especially the January enrollees. That and they get to physically recover between practices so that they can go full speed at each practice.
Two things need to happen. Matt needs to put Harris on Forbes as he is the only one who can keep up with him. Second, the good guys need to waste a couple fouls and run through their moving screens. If they put them on their bottoms a couple times, they'll think twice. I'd relish Diddens putting Costello down. Yeah, I'm still bitter.
I am hoping we develop a second line. I have found memories of the second team line pushing Texas down the field. This is the first time in a long time that a second line would be legit.
Cardale Kingbuck, Cardale Kingbuck, the whole State of Ohio is counting of Cradle Kingbuck.
What's eating gilbert grape? A young Leonardo in a difficult part.
In addition to the vistas, wildlife, hiking and skiing, the Snake River is fun. There are two speeds: floating casually through the park and experiencing the rapids south of Jackson.
I think the reaction you're getting is because there are some illogical folks who will call a highly recruited buckeye a bust because he has not displaced a all american that is 2 or 3 years older said buckeye. I think the "expectation" word was the catalyst. I too am curious about the younger DL and whether they are progressing at a rate to get into the two deep.
Best of luck to him. Just bad timing for him at tOSU with top NFL talent in front of him. He'll make some noise in the MAC. I really appreciated his special team play, especially during his junior year.
Agree. In the spirit of the rules Talib should have been ejected.
that's twice in two games that the refs could not watch tv. total bs.
Buckeye football player - i"ll add onto the Tyson Walter dogpile
Buckeye overall - Jeffrey Dahmer.
What amazed me most about ET was how fast he recovered when he fell onto his back against EMU. When I saw it live I thought I was watching a man plummet to his death. But to his credit and extra-terrrestrial powers he recovered fully much faster than any human being could.
I finished Urban's Above the Line book this week and was pleased to see Coach Studrawa recognized. This was written long before the recent move. I am excited as the OL will benefit from two great coaches (as long as they are aligned).
Urban has a very fine line to walk. He does not want to micro-manage, nor should he. So he has to provide direction and ensure alignment while providing a great deal of autonomy to his staff. His staff is comprised of guys who get it done and are very confident in what they do. Overconfidence is a possible outcome and I have wondered did Coach Warriner believe and insist that he could perform the OC role from the field. It took a loss to gain acceptance (on his part) for the change to be made. Once that decision was made he had to solve the problem on who to coach the OL which then created the problem of which coach to displace. Time will tell but it sure looks like another winning decision for UFM and the team.
Thanks for the reminder Ramzy. One of Owens' rivals back in the day was Mack Robinson (Jackie's older brother) - that's an impressive duo of athletes in the Robinson house. A sad fact from those Olympics was the Avery Brundage, one of he worst human beings ever, succumbed to pressure and kicked two sprinters (Marty Glickman, being one) off the 4X100 relay team because they were Jewish. Brundage then stripped Owens of his amateur status because Jesse did not want to run post Olympic races that Brundage would have profited from.
Don't see the pants. Will they be gray/grey or Ramzy's Cocaine White?
I see what you did there Buckeye Dude - well played.
In addition to Haynes accurate snaps, he was usually one of the first guys down the field covering the ball. I recall a few plays where he helped prevent the ball from going into the end zone.
Herman a MENSA member? I never knew.
His decision took a lot of courage. He made a choice on what he wanted to do. Tried to stay with the good guys and politely told that we did not have a place at WR for him and found another program. Props to him. We will survive and thrive.
