What Sriracha sauce does to food = what 11W does to the internet. Happy 8th 11W!
Holy crap there are a lot of great former players to have worn 10.
Yep, if he wasn't already there, he just reached the pantheon level.
My message is the same to Braxton, and JT, and the rest of the team....Adversity is just an opportunity to demonstrate your character.
But I'm no wordsmith, so I'll reference...
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Only thing I would change is the last sentence. "Beautiful people
do not just happen kick the crap out of Michigan State."

coach Tom Herman said. “I'm not ready to say concerned is the right word. Not yet.”
This means Concerned is in the bullpen warming up.
As defensive line coach Larry Johnson maintains, he wants to have 10 players capable of playing meaningful snaps. That might not be realistic once the season starts, but Miller has a chance to prove he should play in more than nine games in his senior year.
As I get older, the years begin to blur together. I'm guessing it was around 2006 where Tressel had enough depth on O-line that he would regularly alternate series with the "2nd string" O-line.
I didn't think of it that way, but yes, he does tackle the way you're supposed to tackle. He gets the job done. Not one of those risk/reward penny-stock tacklers, but like a blue-chip, double-indemnity high yield tacklers.
Visually, he looks like a cat taking down prey.
It's interesting to speculate how he would have done in the age of the fullback. And, if he becomes the prototype ILB, I wonder if we're going to see that position eventually return. It probably won't though, with all the regulation changes to avoid concussion syndrome.
Was going to post a forum thread on this last night. I was bored, heard Watkins was injured and played the game to see what happened. He did look like an All-Pro backer out there. Involved in just about every tackle, his interception was a thing of beauty. He had the guy totally covered but the QB tried to sneak one in anyway. I was a great throw, just that Shazier flashed range and stretch and pulled it down.
I think he is the prototype linebacker for his time. With Offenses looking to spread the field and force coverage wide and deep, I think it takes a backer with the speed of Shazier to defend that. This isn't a knock by any stretch, just an observation, he doesn't seem to be looking to crush the runner/receiver, just bring them down. So I don't think he's intimidating per se, just super efficient. Crazy Bold Prediction: If he avoids injury, I bet he makes All-Pro this year or next.
Shells got the worst of it by far. I guess cold flows downstream as well.
You know Coach Coombs started yelling about getting water right after the bucket was empty.
I always thought his name was Brother Moves On. Like his ascension was assured.
Anybody know how ALS benefits? Is it based on youtube advertising or does he take donations? If it's based on Youtube plays, that OSU dance team idea has merit.
Easy everybody. Got to take it easy with good ole 'Shoe.
I may have overlooked or neglected some other news hits. Feel free to supplement my list.
- Very likely that both Captain Dildo and Jewoobs get a role in the next installment of the Hangover franchise,…Hungover, Firm and Fabulous.
ESPN has recently played the best games from last year. The Alabama-Auburn game was #1. I watched that last week and Lindsey had a bad game. Poor snaps, missed blocks, getting driven back by the D-line. I hope it was an aberration, and I'm grateful he joined us, but I'm hoping Boren makes it an easy decision. Plus I'd like to see him stomping over some Wolverine (hello Frank Clark) he just pancaked.
Couldn't agree more. Beautiful story.
So sad to see he died.
I love Fisher King, The Best of Times and World according to Garp.
So very sad.
It's weird because our power largely derived from precision. I don't think we blew people off the line so much which is typically what you think of in regards a power run game. It's just that the moving parts knew where to attack, and our backs knew what seams to hit.
I agree that the system is our best hope for a minimal step back.
I heard they have a hot new recruit that's going to start a left tackle. Jabrill something or other.
Not too familiar with Tupac, at first I thought the little "back-stabbin" I heard was from my Iphone. I assume that was Tupac sampling, am really impressed if that was 11W sneaking a little JB in the mix.
And speaking of O-line, Browns new guard Bitonio looked really good against the Lions.
I won't feel relaxed about the O-line till we're past V-tech with a good report card. Captain Obvious thinks it's a big deal to replace 4 starters on a unit that functions as a single organism. The good news is they have to practice against the best D-line in the country, so flaws will get exposed in practice.
From a larger perspective, I think we're like a heavyweight boxer with a plethora of tools, knockout power, lots of footwork. But, we have a little bit of a glass-jaw in Braxton's shoulder, knee, etc. This will be a very interesting year, no doubt.
Plain Dealer said Braxton was withheld from a scrimmage Saturday. Is this true?
