I'd love to see the study take it a step further and show how many 4 and 5 Star Recruits made it to the NFL. Hopefully for some kids it would reduce their sense of entitlement and increase their work ethic.
Who misses Chris Jent? We do!
I just had to put on a clean pair of underwear.
Add Ashton Youboty
I remember watching him sink like 10 3's in a game. Unreal.
Shazier isn't playing like it's his last game...
I thought the same thing with our matchup against Borges and he called the game of his life and we didn't execute. Praying our Defense gets ironed out and we throw them some wrinkles of our own on offense.
Let's savor this win like we savor our Thanksgiving leftovers. There is a reason a majority of us are nervous before The Game. Let's give credit to ttun they used our pursuit speed against us. Was I frustrated with the defensive play calling? Absolutely! But don't let your frustrations get in the way of enjoying a win in AA
_y hands start to sweat everyti_e I read content on this site, this week. Destroy TTUN!
Don't do anything to screw that realtionship up :-)
That's awesome! Kudos to you! I will start making more of a family pregame tradition!
I had the unfortunate experience of growing up in Ft. Wayne (ages 4-18), before moving to Indy (we now reside in Chicago). While I'm thankful for my upbringing Ft. Wayne, is a blackhole of suck. Somehow the general population feels it's ok that they are "fans" of ND, IU, and PU all at the same time. There is a fair population of scUM fans as there is a GM plant and there a plenty of M*chigan transplants. The one bright spot are the Ft. Wayne Komets, a great hockey atmosphere.
Most of the Colts "fans" just came to when Petyon started having success. I would have to say that 80% of the population IMO in Indianapolis has a strong disdain for the Buckeyes as well. Here is a video showing the pure genius of the population in Ft. Wayne.
I didn't buy into the down comments last week on Roby. I gave him the benefit if the doubt. I'm starting to lose some confidence. Some rare open field missed tackles and coverage lapses on his side of the field (it feels like a majority of the time). I still havent determined if it's scheme (lack if more press coverage), lost responsibility of players around him, wishing he went to the NFL, or just plain is stinking it up. Thoughts anyone?
None of this will matter if we win
I can see this game going 2 potential ways...Another close game with a Buckeye Victory...or a game that mirrors the Nebraska game last year. My heart prefers the 2nd.
Sorry stupid iPad down voted instead of up voted you
Thanks for the bailout Mack!
This is the first time I've cried while reading a blog post. Thanks Ramzy, and thank you Lynda.
Unless Washington and Spence double up on sacks ALL year long. :)
My apologies if my reply sounded like I felt that you condone the behavior. That was not my intention, as I'm sure that you don't condone the behavior. What sane person would? One of the many great things about 11W is that the community as a whole brings a diverse background with one love of tOSU.
I understand and respect:
My point was that not every person who has ever used a racial slur is a racist and explained why I believe this.
My belief is just different; that if something as derogatory and hateful can come out of a person's mouth, there has to a be a level of racism in their personality. I think we would all agree that there are different levels of severity when it comes to racism, like most things in the world. I'm sure that all of us are guilty of saying things that we don't mean and have been hurtful to a recipient.
I believe that making racist remarks are forgivable like most sins in the world. But, IMHO that is up to the victim(s) of the situation (which can be anyone). I didn't intend for my reply to convey that racism is something that is unforgivable.
Perhaps I interpreted the quote differently. I interpreted the quote as such: That if you use a racist slur, no matter the situation, there is a level of racism in your body, thus making you a racist on some level.
I appreciate your opinion, but I feel like you might have contradicted yourself. I live this everyday, I'm a minority, and help my clients develop an affirmative defense with compliance training. In this situation I would agree with Jim Rome.
I agree, that in a confrontational situation it's easy for emotions to surface and they are looking for a way to inflict pain. By recognizing that fact, and then following it by making a racist or discriminatory comment the person by default is racist.
Slightly changing topics, professional teams are unique compared to your typical employer. Imagine a peer at work said the same words that Riley Cooper did in front of co-workers and managers, what would happen? Would the co-worker be returning to work the next day?
Do you feel that if we no longer lived in a social media centric world and the film wasn't released to the public, Riley Cooper would feel remorse?
I hope you enjoy your trip up to the Windy City! My wife and I have lived here for a little over 2 years now. We've tried to avoid the tourist areas and we've found one spectacular place to eat:
My wife and I actually had our wedding reception there and it's the best seafood I've ever had. I would suggest getting an appetizer called the 2nd Mortgage, Stone Crab and a Filet.
I would agree with the above comments: for pizza get Lou Malnati's or Gino's East. I find that Giordanos is garbage and they are undercooked 100% of the time. Grab lunch at Portillo's if there one close by, some of the best Italian Beef's and Chicago Dogs IMHO, not to mention Crinkle Cut Fries (Nostalgia for me).
We stick to bars in the burbs so I'm sorry I can't give any advice from that perspective.
We've never done one of the boat's down the river but we've heard nothing but great things. Enjoy the city and Go Bucks!
I hope this doesn't mean that Sam Thompson's jumper will regress. I loved watching the progress he made this past season.
