Ironically, she gets hit by a bus in that movie.

Yes, I've seen and enjoy Mean Girls.

Who doesn't like Mean Girls?! 

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Buy why do we like Mean Girls?

Because it rules?

I see Coach Mick has been getting Matthew Baldwin right since he’s hit campus. 

At last, Kerry had cracked open his first Red Bull with an impatient delight. And the rest, as they say, was history.

Nice impression by Weber. That boy funny.

B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 43, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

Injuries have nothing to do with losing stripe.

Lol yes, they do. You lose your stripe in practice by working hard and showing the coaches you belong on the team, if you can't practice it's far more difficult to lose your stripe. Can you? Sure. But not being able to practice significantly decreases your chances of losing your stripe

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

LOL, no they dont. You lose your stripe by going to class, being a good teammate and dumping high school immaturity. Learning how to be a college student and taking care of your responsibilities.

Literally from Urban Meyer's mouth:

"I wanted to put them through a ritual to become a member of the team, but not allow hazing," Meyer told The Columbus Dispatch in 2012. "They had to earn it the right way, not through hazing and silly, dangerous stuff. They had to earn the right on the football field and by being accountable."

What you said is half of it, but "earn the right on the football field" is the other half. Much harder to do that when you aren't able to be on the football field.

Are they still giving out nicknames in the QB room? If they are, what’s Baldwin’s?

That almost seems too obvious. Or is that the idea?

Alex Williams is a physical freak! Seams like a good,well spoken guy! Let's hope he gets mean and nasty and puts it all together ! (im sure coach mick is working on that as we speak)

When do we find out who got red shirted?  Wasn’t sure with the new rule an dhadnt heard anything. I would assume Williams would be red shirted.

We won’t know until the season ends because they can play up to four games, which means there’s always a chance someone who hasn’t met the limit could still exceed it. According to the latest Freshman Tracker, Alex Williams has played in two games so far.

Awesome! Welcome to the team fellas!

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Is Antwuan Jackson eligible to lose his stripe?  I am not sure how transfers work?  If so, I am kind of surprised he has not had it removed by now.

Kendell Sheffield was one of the first members of the 2017 class to lose his, so I would assume Jackson just hasn't done enough to earn removal of his stripe, despite the fact he's played in 2 games I believe.

All that is left is Kamryn Babb, Antwan Jackson and Max Wray.

Glad to see Baldwin slinging it around. On his HS videos he looks similar to a guy named Haskins.
