Loved the Announcer when he said "And Now the Most Dominant Player"

Instant Chills

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

He throws a baseball better than most quarterbacks I have seen.

Maybe he'll win a September Heisman...

Oops, someone already posted this ... sorry about that.  This was as bad a pitch as EZE's was good.

Joe Bauserman, on the other hand, would have thrown it into the stands.

You mean the same Joe Bauserman that was drafted in the 4th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates, spent 3 years in the minor leagues, and has a career winning record in the minors (14-12 with a 3.42 ERA)?  The one with almost a 2-1 K-BB ratio?

He wasn't the most accurate with a football--but let's not get too sarcastic about a guy who was, after all, a Buckeye.  I mean, go ahead and rip on Denard, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, John Wall, or Carly Rae Jepsen for their first pitches.  (All probably researchable on YouTube.)

Lay off the Buckeye...

The Bauserman jokes do get old, plus excellent point about his actual pitching prowess.

You are right Tundra, of course.

But I have this image of Joe completing a pass to a girl wearing an ear of corn on her head in Lincoln a few years back, and I can't help but chuckle every time I think of it.  That game prompted the famous pass chart that still pops up every now and then. That is a deep well, and people will go there occasionally.  But ideally, we wouldn't.

He was a really good baseball player. He could also throw a football, just not so well under pressure. 

Pay it forward

Hmmmmm...looks like maybe that ring on his throwing hand can doctor that baseball pretty well!

Looks like he tried to run a lil 2-seamer in on the right handed hitter's hands. Nasty.

Way better than Denard's first pitch.

You didn't know our RB (let alone 3rd string QB) has a better arm than scUM's starting QB?

Denard played baseball in high school. No excuses.

I could practically guarantee Marshall (H-Back) and Lee (LB) could also school tsun's QBs.

Well done, Zeke that could have gone much worse. Now please don't give me any other reasons to pay any attention to the Cardinals.

This proves what we already knew: Zeke is a better athlete than 50 Cent.

I don't DV. Most people don't deserve it, and the ones who do probably enjoy it.

Wonder what the speed of that pitch was.

Randy Johnson would regularly throw in the mid to upper 90's occasionally getting over 100.

See you in Indy! B1G!

Johnson has knocked the feathers off quite a few batters too.

Brunstar,  I have never openly  laughed out loud at a gif before,great job.  Who were the four people on the top gif? That was pathetic        Easily my favorite gif ever.

The Kardashians.  I'm still trying to figure out why they got to throw a first pitch, and also, why they are famous.

That pitch was weak!  Barely got over the plate, glad he's a RB

HS
Dongbrake44's picture

No, no heat, but it was right over the plate, catcher didn't have to move, steeee-rike! Much better than nearly all ceremonial pitches you'll see. Way to go EZ!

GO BUCKS!!!

Eze E - what an incredible ambassador this kid is for the university and the football program!  Just a wonderful human being raised by great parents!  Sadly you never hear about Urban recruiting these types of kids... only dirt bags like Hernandez... oh well, those who matter know!!!

Too bad there is no ring for beating Indiana, then he could show Mizzou fans that it can, in fact, be done.

I fucking hate this.

I mean, I'm happy for Zeke. This is a big deal. 

But god, do I hate the Cardinals. And people can never understand why I hate them. Everyone just assumes I hate them for their success, but that really isn't the case. I have no problems with Duke, the Patriots, the Spurs or SF Giants. All really successful institutions of sports. I just hate the Cardinals because of how they act.

They masquerade as if they are some wholesome little Mom-And-Pop shop with great Midwest values ranging from their front office to their players to the fans. But they aren't. They are this thinly veiled, self-righteous cult of obnoxious assholes living in some bubble under the impression that the rest of the baseball community idealizes how they operate. They're nothing but a bunch of tools who try to act like baseball's "good ole boys" when they're really nothing more than an organization who feels morally superior to everyone else. Seriously, have you ever watched a Cardinals broadcast? It's miserable. Just a three hour exercise of self-gratification. All parties involved drowning in their own pool of sanctimonious BS. For example, I was watching the other week and Jason Heyward made a really nice play to gun a runner out at 2nd. It was a fine baseball play and it was during a slightly high leverage situation, but nothing beyond that. Suddenly the Cardinals announcers go on a five minute diatribe talking about how the Cardinals fans were really letting Heyward know how much they appreciate that play and how that shows how "savvy" and "knowledgable" their fans were. As if fans from the Pirates or Reds or Giants or Braves or whoever wouldn't appreciate such a play.

So rant over. Fuck the Cardinals. Don't you dare taint my Zeke with your Cardinals Devil Magic.

I'm with you on this.  Love Zeke.  Hate the St. Louis Cardinals with a white hot passion.  Never has a fan base been so eager and so willing to tell you how great they are as fans.

Nobody cares, Cardinal fans. Oh, and just a friendly piece of advice: Doing perceived "classy" things and then going around bragging about it sort of negates it being "classy".

HS
ScarletandGREAT's picture

First of all, Zeke is a Cardinals fan. One of those apparently self-righteous obnoxious asshole fans you are referring to. I get it, you hate the Cardinals. But he's from Missouri, it's his hometown team.... cant you just be happy for him without projecting your own issues on the situation?

What an awesome experience for him. Love seeing him in that Cardinals jersey. Go Zeke, and Go Cards!

Oh my goodness. You have no idea how much this post means to me. They are an absolutely insufferable lot. I don't even want to expand on what you said because I can't do it justice.

Thank you. Just....I can't even.

Proudly dispensing unbridled arrogance since 1983.

First he strikes from 85, then he strikes from 60.5!

For anyone saying it was a weak pitch, we all know Zeke gets stronger as the game wears on! :)

GO BUCKS!!
