Well there wasnt anything else on.  That said count me as one that thinks taking away from ohio hs football fridays is an abomination.  I get money will always win and im fine with that.  Thurs night, mon night, sat morn, sat afternoon, sat night, christmas day, thanksgiving day, new years eve.  Count me in.  My personal line in the sand is hurting hs friday nights.   

That said i watched the whole game.  But come on, stand for something.

You can not evaluate play unless you know the defensive calls, which none of us do. And even then you dont know more than urban and day.

what if browning isnt going to class?  What if he is dogging it at practice? What if he is showing up late to film study or lifting or doesnt know all the calls or cant make the calls.

hell, he could be playing hurt, less than 100%

not suggesting any of that is true but those kinds of things matter and do affect playing time at the college level.  there is more to college sports than 40 time and vertical jump. And fans arent privy to 90% of it.

bottom line is anyone in the stands making a call as to playing time is doing so with less than 10% of the information needed.

Im old enough to remember when aj hawk and bobby carpenter were an absolute tran wreck in a loss to NOrthwestern.  as youngsters.

Breaking news...young players get better.   In my life i can think of two times a returning incumbent got beat out.  Terry glenn did it to buster tillman who was the supposed heir apparent and cardale jones over jt.

does nobody remember  how bad the parris campbell, kj hill, terry mclaurin, johnnie dixon clown show as fresh/soph?

i can see the future.. when these guys are seniors they are going to be an unstoppable force.  LOL

I can confirm this to be 100% true.

Love him as a buckeye, and nobody is perfect but he There is most certainly a screw loose.  

Not surprising to me though.  People that seem to relish aggression and physical contact usually are a special breed.  We’ve all seen it on the field.  Him ramming defenders as though he likes it... Its not “normal” and its not usually something you can just turn off/on.

Wrong.  Urban was forced out by idiot administrators.  He will be back coaching within a couple years.  I like Day, think he will do well and am excited about a younger staff and new blood.  But urban could have been here 15-20 years and douche bag administrators took that from OSU fans.  

To be fair, i also thought Miami was going to curb stomp OSU in 2002 and OSU was going to curb stomp Florida in 2007 so....

Used to be they didnt let black kids or girls play.   My dad used to tear his knee up back in the 50s as a youth and you just wrapped it up tighter each time so it wouldn’t “wobble”.  Hydrating was a sign of weakness....

i just think theres more information available and more free time to analyze it.  So no, rock bottom to me was a long time ago.

On the flip side i was falsely accused.  It cost me a lot.  Thankfully the truth finally came out.  Innocent until proven guilty, while imperfect, is best.  Unfortunately, as hard as it may be i disagree with you.  Everyones “word” should be questioned, nobody should be presumed guilty no matter how difficult that might be for victims.  Most of the time justice prevails, as it did in your daughters case and mine.

Joe terranova in the late 70s.  That said, he typed rankings on a typewriter and would mail out carbon copies.  I think a decade or so in he had a few thousand subscribers for his news letter.  Back then there was no way to really expand your audience.  And he was really limited to doing profiles on players from word of mouth and coaches.  I think he only ranked top 50 or 100 kids in fball and bball. but those were only ones he knew about.  Im sure there were thousands of kids he didnt even know existed.  He picked up steam in the mid 80s but not until internet did recruiting really take off and by then it had passed him by.

i know this bc my father was an early follower and convinced him to rank my brother last in his bball rankings as a surprise bday present.  I think it was #100.  That was the fall of 1987.

Comment 29 May 2019

Gotta admit i was shocked at how someone with that much hype was so poor throwing the ball.  And  dont givt me T Pryor.. he was never hyped as competent throwing the ball like Fields was.

but he has a lot of potential and you can win with a running QB in CFB.  So a lot of potential exists.

Not buying olave.  Without haskins the passing game is regressing.  The production wont be there for anyone involved.  Not a knock on olave, its recognizing how special haskins was.

The obvious choice to me is fields.  He is going to start and take every snap.  But then ill go with wade.

Comment 19 Apr 2019

Im not buying the hate.  OSU drew first blood when they added Fields.  Martell and Baldwin simply responded to the change that Day made.  A change not apparent to Baldwin when he signed his LOI.

That said, i think the whole transfer issue is overblown.  If programs can do what is best for them and players can do what is best for them how is that not win-win?   Seems like only the fans are crying about it.  I like it and think it will make cfb more competitive.
