I am glad to hear chatter coming out about Tate staying! I wish him all the luck in the world and hope he gets the chance to be out on the field. Hopefully this will all help mold him into a bit more mature young man!
I have been a big Tate fan - but I have to admit, this hasn't been his best week! I'll wait until the details come out but it is trending in a downward direction right now! Come on Tate, pull yourself together, put on your big boy pants, and get back out there and prove everybody wrong!
Yes, I'm sure when you were 18-20, you were a master of all the social norms and rules on how one should act that would meet with the standards of millions of people. We should post those rules in the locker room so everybody knows how to act, in your opinion, when crossroad moments are approached!
Well said Shawnee - that is exactly how I feel but you summed it up much better than I could!
Cincy - couldn't agree more! I am truly saddened there is so much hatred from the Buckeye Nation for Tate. The guy made a decision to leave... nobody on this board knows what coach Day said, or what happened that led him to make that call. Regardless, he was trying to make the best decision for himself. He put several years of blood, sweat, and effort into being an Ohio State QB but things didn't work out. I see no reason to spew such vitriol at somebody trying to make their way in a very difficult environment.
WOW - just hearing Shamrock towing still gets my blood going... hell, they were doing this crap back in the early 80s. F@#$ing ghouls... I hope they get a judge that was towed a couple of times by these assholes...
Laughing at the most annoying fan base responses... people whining because TTUN isn't on it. They're so shitty they can't even make the most annoying fan base... bwwwaaaahahahahahaha. You can't make this stuff up!
The Predator is coming for your QBs this year B1G... and there isn't anything you can do about it!
Freakin classic! Nicely done Liam... nicely done!
Meh - good luck to these kids.... moving on!
I'd say the probability of the Buckeyes getting into the CFP is directly proportional to whether they get blown out by a Purdue/Iowa like unranked team.
Your kids also don't spend every single waking non-class/studying hour watching film, working out, practicing, conditioning, and rehabbing because they are beating the sh!t out of their bodies. Not trying to trash your kids, but these football players go WAY above what a normal student does on a daily basis and given they spend just about every spare moment in these facilities - I have no problem tossing in these bennies....
I love this lopsided version of The Game since we're on the winning side of it... the Cooper Era still haunts me today! Every single year TTUN gets more bitter, angry, and desperate about it, and that bodes well for the good guys! They are heaping a great deal of pressure on themselves and obviously, they fold like an Ikea table when game day arrives! I cannot wait to see the Buckeyes carpet bomb this year's version of the rodents!
OUCH... Norman's ankles must be a bit sore this morning!
I have always been a big fan of this young man and will be rooting for him to have a monster senior season...
With my couch psychologist degree in tact - I can say that the TTUN is probably pretty sick of talking about getting smashed continually by the Buckeyes, sick of thinking about it, and just plain sick of experiencing it. It is in their heads and under their skin! That puts so much pressure on them that it is almost a self fulfilling prophecy that they believe it is their destiny so they put even more pressure on themselves to change the outcome! Too much pressure invokes the inevitability of choking factor up higher and higher!
Come on... Braxton Miller should be the starting QB for the Fighting Meyers... Dwayne had one great year where Braxton was just ankle breaking awesome for several.
It is the Year Of The Predator!!!
It feels like the Spielman era is back... see ball, crush person carrying ball! As stated over and over, the defensive schemes over the last few years seemed to be way too over thought and complicated! Bring back the less thought, more crushing opponent defensive mindset!
Ahhhhh... you know the beginning of college football is near when TTUN gets picked to win everything and their QB is awarded the September Heisman Trophy. Every. Single. Year! They have replaced continually overrated Notre Dame as the most overrated, over-hyped team in the country. The great news about this... ever. single. year, they implode in spectacular fashion and adding a big ass heaping of salt to grind into their crushed souls!
Completely homerized take: Ryan Day and team walk into AA (whore) and drop 80 on this team and swim out on the wave of their fans' tears!!!
Spot on... there are nothing but positives in the column for dropping wolverines at work. You are getting paid, somebody else cleans up the head, you're using their TP, and you get some quality time away from the cube world! Win Win!
Bring it on bitches... our defense has been going against that offense for YEARS! We will be ready....
Just eat boogers and STFU Jim - that is a more appropriate use for your pie-hole. To claim it wasn't a dig and have to defend your statements because the whole world knew it was a dig, means it was a dig. You're just an ignorant, immature, overrated coach that has completely under performed at TTUN every single year! I look for Day and team to drop 70 plus on your ass this year just to drive the point home that you such!
*taps on microphone - F@#$ Booger Jim!
I hope Day and the Buckeyes walk into that cesspool and drops 80 on TTUN and crushes their souls yet again! It has become a great tradition in November to taste their tears of despair!
Wow - how great did that event look! I wish I was in Columbus and could have attended! Grins and laughs all around! Nicely done Buckeyes!!!
