JT lookin jacked. Can anyone say QB controversy?
We walk a fine line of needing other BIG teams to win games to help our SOS and becoming confused of who "we" are. Last year, FSU had the 46th toughest schedule last year according to Phil Steele (Buckeye's 36th). As defending National Champ's we will get the benefit of the doubt, we just need to win. Please see Ramzy's excellent piece here: The Killing Tree.
The Top 10 Players the rest of the BIG Will Face During the 2015 Season (In No Particular Order):
OSU QB 1
OSU QB 2
OSU QB 3
Rax / I used to throw down on their Alligator Meals when I was a kid. I still have an addiction to Lime Jello because of them.
Nightmare Poll = I Do not vote. I'd prefer to stay in the dream state that I'm in.
DJ: Heads up on this article, my computer has closed the tab due to malware trying to be uploaded from the site.
Let's not forget that Samuel earned a start one game last season. It seemed to really light a fire under Zeke as well.
If he's consuming right before a game I could see this. Otherwise it shouldn't be altering his on court performance.
11W staff could you please help Eric monetize this? I believe the community has spoken, Eric and 11W should benefit, maybe some proceeds go to the Dubgate next year, or we all just get premium lounge access, or a charity. We have spoken , take our money!
Speaking of J.D... Did anyone else see him grace the Top 10 Plays the other night off an Alley-oop?
I hated that song UNTIL our championship run. Now, I find myself leaving not changing the station because I get lost reminiscing about our football year. Call me crazy.
All his shirts are Crops. He has to go to a tailor to get all of his shirts extended.
Any Slam Thompson sightings?
Point taken, he's played well for the Broncos. And you're right, we don't know for certain all the details around the injury. Just my take and appreciation for the mentality Grant is taking.
I think you're taking the comment about facing top tier competition out of context. I think there is a drastic difference in being a professional athlete daily and student athlete on the cusp of getting a huge payday with hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line when drafted and being evaluated against your peers. If he was 85% healthy and could have limited Sammy more I and would have appreciated it as a Buckeye Fan, but don't blame the kid if the decision impacted him positively in the long run.
Nothing but respect and love for Past, Present and Future Buckeyes (That's not to say I don't get frustrated as a fan, just ask my wife) Upvote 4 you because you're bringing another angle to the conversation. That's what 11W's is all about and what I appreciate.
Agree 100%. I also appreciate his attitude towards top tier competition; compared to Roby's fear last season in the postseason. Roby was more scared about his draft stock against Sammy Watkins. Doran is embracing the opportunity.
DJ is this your secret account?
I found the pleasant surprise that our C position overall is averaging over 17 ppg. Wish Amir had Trey's motor.
I've always appreciated Dave's foundation. Their goal is to ensure every child in foster care has an opportunity to become adopted. I was adopted so this is something that resonates more with me personally. I cringe every time someone says it with a negative connotation. I feel blessed to be given the opportunities I've had in my life and it wouldn't have been possible without my parents and adoption. https://www.davethomasfoundation.org/who-we-are/dave-thomas/
Understood and valid point. But wouldn't you have to be paid more to live in Kentucky too? :-)
What I think we omit to consider is the fact of does an extra $100k make any of these assistants happier? In other words, is it a sticking point for them in their happiness and goals? I can guarantee that all of us would be ecstatic to have an extra $25k per year. I feel on occasion we expect coaches to have the same exact mindset of Professional Athletes on money being strictly about respect. There is so much that goes into one's professional happiness outside of $, especially for those who teach. This staff has been together now for almost 3 seasons, I expect that some have aspirations to be a head coach and climb the ladder, other's might just want an opportunity to shape young men, teach, and compete at a championship level everyday and are happy with the current circumstances. Regardless it's Gene's and Urban's jobs to ensure they are doing everything possible to retain, and develop the best.
Thanks for answering my question guys! I busted out laughing when you said you would punch the ref in the face. So random!
I would actually say Apple later In the season.
