Really hope the bucks aren't overlooking this game. NIU is a legit team.
I still remember reading a couple OSU recruiting gurus who thought that Cardale was going to be a better long-term prospect than Braxton Miller. Man that was a long time ago. Still can't believe we got both of them.
The standard joke in the OSU engineering program is that any undefined behavior "fires a ballistic missile at Michigan."
Still amazed Gardner suddenly turned into superman against us, with a broken foot on top of things. He played a hell of a game.
Oh definitely. But it's a fine line between pushing yourself and hurting yourself. Of course, that's the difference between a quality strength trainer and the idiots at your local gym.
Damn, some of those quotes sound like an amazing way to injure yourself. But he seems to know what he's doing.
I didn't read that as sour grapes -- more just talking up how good their defense is going to be. "Look, these guys won a championship with it, you should buy into our philosophy."
We've got a ton of guys on scholarship at quarterback right now. I'd be confident enough with any of them as starter next year.
I agree with if you JT happens to sprain his MCL in the first half of the Alabama game.
Regardless of how he is as a defensive coordinator, dude is one *hell* of a linebacker coach.
I feel like the PSU game had much more to do with JT's injury than anything else. We were moving the ball well enough considering the defense we were facing up until that point. With a sprained knee the defense could key off of Zeke, AND JT wasn't as confident stepping into his throws.
We won that game once he and the coaching staff said "screw the injury, I'm running it."
We opened with the Wisconsin game with a few of our standard read option runs -- Cardale looked pretty awful. If he's got room in front of him, he's fast and a load to bring down. But if the hole wasn't there he kind of panicked instead of getting the 2-3 yards that there actually available.
That was something that showed up in the championship run -- we were suddenly settling for field goals inside the ten.
Some of that was obviously just Jones being a little out of practice - see the bobbled snap in the Sugar Bowl. But Barrett was absolutely lethal there.
"AK-47 and Grey Goose not included."
(Love Mo and happy he's got his life turned around. But the joke was there.)
*deleted* Replied in the wrong place
So I always wonder what more there was to the story of that game. Because obviously Tressel proved Brown wrong about not being able to compete -- later that year against quality Big Ten opponents, and then Oregon, followed by his tremendous 11-1 run before tat-gate.
I always got the impression that the staff expected Pryor to be farther along than he was in that camp, and that they didn't have a good backup offensive game-plan when he wasn't.
Love the Imported T-shirt.
It was definitely more of a sentimental good-bye than a grand finale.
I enjoyed the politicians all telling him off, even if their comedic delivery was rough.
It was apparently invented to fulfill a similar role to peanut butter -- cheap wartime protein.
Still ridiculous they considered MDMA a performance enhancing drug. In any case, hitting it every weekend isn't a great habit to be in if you want to be a professional... well, anything. I'd say the same about alcohol at the level he's talking about using.
Hope he destroys people this year and still makes it in the NFL. I'm so sad we didn't get to see him and Bosa terrorizing people last year, and that his poor choices made him miss out on a championship.
Pretty much everything he's cited here would show up after reading the wikipedia entry...
I want so badly for him to trot out Stephen Collier on the first snap just to troll everybody.
Wonder how much Tress is responsible for the downfall of the Big Ten. That wall around Ohio meant everyone else was starved for recruits, but it also didn't bring OSU's talent to quite the heights top to bottom as Urban's national approach.
I'd put the top guys under Tress against anyone Meyer has brought in, but the speed down the line now.. man.
If the band forced a freshman to sing this song as part of hazing -- that's an issue.
If they ignored requests from other students to stop singing it -- they're assholes.
If it happened to be in the back of an unofficial songbook listed as offensive that most people didn't see... then it sounds almost exactly the same as South Park.
