I still miss wrestling every day since I had to retire due to a neck injury. I'm happy for him that he got to enjoy a full-contact sport during the summer of his life.
I was wondering if a shoe was about to drop with a defensive back decommitment. We had too many guys already comitted to still have rumblings about adding more without something breaking.
The biggest injustice of tatgate is that white NCAA owners have made a de-facto law, outside democracy or the court system, that black college players don't even own their own signature.
And those at the top? Those unelected NCAA officials who get to make up their own employment laws. Do those powerful old men live by the same "amateurism" rules they force on black athletes? Nope, the rule-makers get to make fat salaries and they sure as hell get to own their own signatures. Funny how what's good for the black athlete isn't good enough for rich old white men, is there a word for that...
One rule for the rich another rule for the common man. And the biggest sin in America today is doing anything to disrupting the rule of the rich and powerful over us, as Teessel found out.
I think the defensive tackles are going to drive the defense this year. We're loaded with weapons. And the one thing that can't be countered by a single play in an offensive coordinator's playbook is consistent pressure up the middle.
I still have PTSD from the Pryor/Wint experiment. Are you sure we can't just fake Fuller's death and have him re-enroll as Fordan Juller?
He seemed like the perfect H-back for Urban's system and in the blink of an eye was left without a position when Day transitioned our offense to a more NFL-style passing attack.
I think Gill is going to do big things in the right scheme and I wish him all the best! The NCAA shouldn't make him sit out a year because the scheme changed on him and he needed to move to a program where he fit, that's not his fault, he should be able to play this season!
Fields would not be a top-5 pick if he sits out, gets injured, or has a bad year. Fields has some issues to work out including getting the ball out of his hands much faster, ball placement on some throws, and an over-reliance on using his legs to bail himself out of bad situations (usually created by holding the ball too long).
As a true sophomore QB those are issues you'd expect of someone with that experience and I (along with buckeye nation) expects him to improve greatly on this weaknesses this season.
Matt is correct that "Fields isn't a round 1 lock" but that's almost a meaningless statement because almost no QBs would be round 1 locks after their true sophomore season. Even Tua, who was a true round 1 lock, fell quite a bit in the draft after he got injured.
I think the Arnette comparison is a good one. Browning is still just a junior and his issues are all mental - he's got every physical gift. 2 years in the film room is still plenty of time for him to develop into the player he has the potential to become.
Werner had one of the most surprising jumps in quality I've seen from a buckeye. In 2018 Pete seemed averse to contact where he'd try to "dance around" blockers instead of taking on the block. He also looked weak as a tackler where it seemed like every time he made contact with a running back, the RB would fall forward for 3 more yards.
Then in 2019 he combined the speed he always had with a newfound warrior mentality and his play went through the roof. Now in 2020 if he makes anything close to the jump he made last year, watch out! When you combine his physical gifts, with his newfound ability to hit hard and tackle, with probably the game slowing down for him and him anticipating better - he could be in for an exceptional season.
Number 1 I love it!
Allowing stadiums full of people isn't in the cards for this year.
There could be college football but it'll be in empty stadiums. If football goes ahead, i imagine there would be some kind of Coronavirus testing regime similar to the NFL's random STD testing policy.
Were are the pictures. You better post those pics.
When it comes to bathroom articles, if you're in for a penny you're in for a pound.
If you're going to do it, you'd better be including pictures of said bathrooms.
Okudah is going to have a long and successful NFL career.
Hamilton's measureables are surprising! That is a big strong man.
Yikes 4.6 might cost WRs a draftable grade.
Why this hasn't been done already is a mystery to me.
Of course unpaid student athletes should be able to transfer schools if their current program isn't a fit. A one-time rule seems generally acceptable to me.
I came of age during the Duke Lacrosse scandal. I sure hope this isn't happening again.
I'm not saying anything other than this report leads me to believe we're going to be hearing a different version of events from another side to this story.
This part is a bit odd "The victim began to have consensual sex with Riep before she stopped"
I think there's going to be another side to this story.
A jury will have to determine where the truth is.
Urban Meyer decided to throw his whole career away for THIS guy?
He hurt our university's reputation for THIS guy?
What the hell was he thinking?
Welcome to the club!
I hope you love your time at Ohio State as much as I did!
Think Clark Philips is having a little buyer's remorse about going to Utah right now?
Urban will always have a special place in my heart. But bringing back Barrett for a redshirt 5th season when he had Haskins and Burrow just sitting on his bench (two first-round NFL draft picks!) is why I'm not sad we turned the page to Ryan Day.
Clemson got beat down like they didn't deserve to be there.
...almost like someone else should have been in that game instead...
