I've lamented about this same topic with my friend group for years. The consensus between us was that what you watched that day was the birth of College Football 2.0. In an era where old stubborn coaches weren't sharing info with each other, there was no social media as we know it today at least to see in real time what other teams were doing, and your typical blue blood coach was a 55-65 year old football purist, came Urban Meyer. He visited high school coaches, he took risks that no other coaches were taking, and he invented a new genre of football. Other coaches (i.e. Tressel) were all "Take your time, get in the huddle, set your play up and lets get a few yds towards the next 1st down", Urban was Go! Go! Trying to score a TD on every damn play. 4th and 1 on his own side of the 50? He's going for it. Playaction bombs on 1st down, 5 wide on almost every down, triple options, 2 point conversions when he didnt have to, you name it. It was a god damn blitzkrieg. Urban played the game like a teenager playing Madden. Ohio State wasn't ready. The entire game changed after that year.
You know it is possible to think Zach is a scumbag that you would never personally associate with but also say what Courtney and especially the public are doing to him is tragic at this point. It doesn’t have to be such a tribal A vs B debate. This dude was trying to pick up his kids. There would not be a mugshot to paste all over the internet if this was some guy off the street and not a clickbait villain like ZS. Mark my words, I truly believe Zach Smith will take his own life someday over all of this leaving 2 fatherless kids and I hope all the media sharks that smell blood in the water and the vile woman he married will finally be happy....all while everyone hypocritically cheers on Kareem Hunt, Frank Clark, Adrian Peterson and the slew of other athletes whose lives have been allowed to continue after “paying” for their similar mistakes.
Me watching Gary ugly-crying and screaming like a toddler on the sidelines after the loss to Sparty in 17 on the Amazon TTUN show:
Is it really any crazier than Jon being raised from the dead for no reason whatsoever at the time? Or the dragon being pulled out of the river, brought back to life and used against its former owners? If he is indeed the LoL, it would certainly be for a purpose. Now with the Dothraki and Unsullied gone, there needs to be some sort of ace n the hole if the Northeners are to defeat Cersei's army. One variable is that I am also starting to think Jon and Dany are going to end up facing each other. I think Jon's dragon will stop responding to Dany and there will be some sort of dragon vs dragon combat scene.
Anyone else feel like non-infinity stoned version of Thanos was actually more powerful (fighting ability wise) than stoned Thanos?
I don't know about more powerful, but my gf who knows nothing of the MCU and only watched Infinity War about 2 hours before Endgame, was completely sympathetic towards Thanos. She was like "So wait, if they just left Thanos alone, everyone would just live on farms with plenty of resources and less pollution? The Avengers suck" lol
I have a theory. I think Bran is the Lord of Light. Basically the opposite of the Night King. This would explain why Bran and the NK were so tied together. 2 instances I want to point out: Last night, Melisandre showed some frustration when her spells weren't working, and we're led to believe the Lord of Light himself started the fire. Keep in mind Bran was out warging via the ravens at the time observing the battle. The 2nd instance was that Melisandre's spells didn't work to bring Jon Snow back to life. If you remember she gave up and left the room. The only one present for Jon's revival was Ghost, who Bran could have easily warged into.
What purpose does Bran being the LoL serve? We know that like the Knight King can bring the dead back to life with ice, and we know the Lord of Light can bring back the dead through fire. I am starting to suspect that Bran will bring back the dead Starks to take their revenge on Cersei who was either directly or indirectly responsible for all of their deaths.
Die hard MCU fan. Loved the movie. I was left with 2 questions:
1. If future Nebula kills past Nebula, how did she survive in the future? I thought once she killed herself she would have disappeared or something.
2. What happened to Gamora? I felt this was left unresolved and then we just see Quill searching for her.
And for the OP. I'm just gonna brush over the hilarious contradiction of complaining that a movie based on source material about Universal genocide where the antagonist personally brutally murders half of the main characters isn't kid friendly....and say half the reason Marvel has become such the box office powerhouse is that it started allowing the characters to age with the audience. They're dealing with imperfect, living breathing adult characters who curse, and do all the other normal adult things. It isn't going to change. However Marvel has been cranking out tons and tons of kid friendly content like Spider Man: Into the Spiderverse, Cloak & Dagger on FreeForm, and many more. There is plenty of stuff for kids. Let the adults have something too. /Rant
On an related note, I see Brandon Watson is listed as a draft eligible prospect on NFL.com and well, that's just fucking hilarious.
The Haskins hate leading into the draft was comical. Some buffoon on the telecast said Re: Haskins “I just don’t trust a kid who has only started 1 year” and contradicted himself before he even ended his sentence. He finished the thought by saying he loved Kyler Murray’s ability to come in for only 1 year and lead the team. I think all 3 QBs taken are doomed to fail at incompetent franchises, but it kills me to see those 2 other dweebs get $20-$10mil more than Dwayne
I would call you naive Knarcisi. Love your commentary but you must have missed Damon Arnette posting pics on Snapchat with like $5k in cash in our own damn locker room, Weber pulling into school freshman year in a brand new yellow Dodge Charger, various players jewelry shopping last summer, Clarett’s first hand accounts, and more. It’s an unfortunate truth dude. You can be a super fan whilst also accepting reality. A lot of us do it everyday. Join us brother!
Not parallel at all because Duke has run the gauntlet of a 64 team tournament and won 5 times. They weren't arbitrarily picked to go straight to the final four for beating up on mediocre competition and sometimes winning it's conference. Looking at you Alabama. Also Duke lays an egg every year sure, but so does pretty much everyone. Comes with playing more games. Losing a midseason game to VT doesn't affect a Duke like say a 55 point prison beating at Iowa cost Ohio State, who only plays 12 reg season games.
It's been addressed already. Former players say Ed Warinner is the reason for all of our troubles that day.
I know my heart will be broken tonight. I feel it.
No unfortunately. Just saw it from the top. And it's a real possibility I would like it if I could like make a journey out of it. I was in Montana in Big Sky and they took us to see all these famous mountains and it was boring as hell. I came back the next day and saw nearly the exact same things but was hiking through it on horseback and it was one of the best days of that year for me. I need the experience of a situation. I don't like just standing there and staring at shit
LOL. My dad says my opinion will change when I have kids. And I wasn't singling out the Grand Canyon. Pretty much any monolithic landmark I've ever seen. Grand Canyon, Ocean, manmade stuff like the Washington monument, etc. Bored within 10 minutes, and I'm definitely not the kind of guy that will sit there jockeying against other tourists to get a picture either. I'd pay to go back to Tokyo and eat & drink my way through the city for the 10th time over an all expense paid trip to stare off into the distance at some landmark. I thought there had to be a likewise minded Buckeye out there, but maybe I am truly dead inside haha.
Wishing you a great trip OP. But this thread seems like a good place to ask the following: Am I an asshole for being unimpressed by the Grand Canyon? As with many natural attractions it was one of those things where I saw it, said "Welp, there it is" and was ready to go in like 10 mins. I'm technically a millennial, so maybe growing up on the internet has ruined me. I've heard the GC is better by helicopter or taking a kayak or boat through it which I didn't do. But natural landmarks just don't really do it for me. Give me a day exploring a city over a big hole in the ground any day. Anyone else this way?
That's one way to look at it. Another way to look at it is if it was some poor nobody it wouldn't be making headlines across the country to do irreparable damage to his or her reputation and there wouldn't be a random thread of 40 guys in Ohio talking about it on the internet. People skate on these charges every day, rich or poor. Who gives a shit?
Do I need to bump the Baker Bros United thread again or what?
Is Dan Snyder our shadow AD? Mattison's salary is ABSURD.
If we have another season of Lee Corso fumbling through the telecast, Fox may overtake Gameday with this lineup. I get the guy had a stroke, but ESPN marching him out every week to make a fool of himself is just flat out cruel.
1. The Game should be a color vs color uniform matchup and it should join the 21st century and be played at prime time
2. When recruits back out of their commitments at the last minute and play games on social media to fake out coaches recruiting them, they are assholes. Don’t care how old they are.
3. Urban lost his passion well before the ZS stuff.
4. Caring if recruits are from Ohio or not is the biggest waste of time on this board. It’s the Ohio State version of the ridiculous “Michigan Man” nonsense that continues to set back the Wolverines to this day. Very happy our program lives in the reality of 2019 football. Wish the fan base could catch up.
5. Please don’t ban me, but letting Birm walk was a mistake for 11W. Recruiting coverage has never been the same. No disrespect to his replacements, it’s not that they were bad. It’s just that he was and continues to be the best.
I don't like alternate uniforms, particularly since it's just a ploy by Nike to sell more crap to fans.
i don’t know how many more times me, or the copious amount of others need to post, but for the love of God, this is wildly inaccurate. Ohio State and other programs request these changes/alternates. Not the other way around. It’s not in the contract, it isn’t forced upon anyone, and that’s that. Saying you just flat out don’t like alternate unis is an opinion and a fair one. But at least know how the process works before you blame the companies for it. A company that is paying poor old Ohio State nearly a quarter billion dollars for the privilege to do so.
Don't know if you're single or not, but there's an open air rooftop bar on top of the W called POV and it is a great spot to take dates on weeknights. Or if you have a lady, maybe do a little date-night there. It overlooks the White House but you can see the whole city. Great vibes.
This is kind of where I'm at. Other teams are still making it happen despite rule changes etc. Seems crazy we haven't had one go back for 4 years now. I am curious to see the national average. We have to be towards the bottom
