Many years the Spring Game was the only game my parents were able to afford to take the family to. Means a lot to some. Meant everything to a 6-8 year old kid.
Yep, this... Buckeye baseball title would be something special (not that they are not all special no matter the sport).
Big shout out to those who don't pronounce his last name "combs" and really hit those double oo's with the respect they deserve.
The officials did not cause JK to drop two TD passes (I think we all agree that pick/slip screen was going to be a walk in TD). They didn't cause us to rough the punter. They didn't cause our offense to come away with FG's instead of touchdowns in the first half. They didn't cause Wade to lower his head and hit TLaw with the crown (the call sucked, yes, but by definition it was the right call.) They didn't cause JK's ankle injury. They didn't cause Olave to break his route off.
Tuf Borland should have had a pick six? Sure. But then Clemson's DB dropped a for sure pick 6 as well not too long after.
It's just football. Game of good breaks and bad breaks. Game of inches... and we lost several of those inches on our own without any input from Clemson or the Refs. And we caught very few, if any, "good" breaks. Like when our punt nailed the Clemson returners leg? And the ball just dropped dead for him to fall on? Instead of bouncing, I don't know, 3-4 yards ANYWHERE else?... Bad break for us, good break for them.
Blaming the refs is for losers. Let TTUN do the ref blaming. But the refs are not the reason we lost the game my buckeye brother. The best two teams in the nation played that night and everyone with any kind of football sense knows that.
You're getting your movies mixed up here. But I see the crossover confusion.
Well said, this is the logical answer.
...it worked on teams with inferior talent. Yes.
Gonna sit tight on this one, right now it's tough to say. But he's good... He's so good he makes good RB's seem not so good.
Don't take this the wrong way, not doubting your football prowess...
Butttttt... we all knew JT was going to be running the ball. As did the opposing defense.
There was a play early in the 1st half where Martinez thought he saw some daylight to run... sprinted through the front line and then immediately saw 4 white jerseys collapse and surround him... annnnd he hit the fetal position.
Tough to pick out one play that alleviated any worry I had for the game. But that was certainly one of them.
Man, yeah the game hurt and Joe played poorly. I drove 26 hours round trip to see it in person. Missouri river had flooded causing a 4 hour detour up through Omaha. Remember that?
But here we are posting a big bold photo of Joe's face, article of his infamous performance, and thus inciting 100 comments ripping on the dude. Doesn't sit well or feel right. I don't like reminiscing as if he's OSU's own Billy Buckner.
Are we going to post a photo of Hamby if we (somehow) end up playing a 1 loss Texas in the CFP? And just unload about the pass he dropped (twice)?
Just my opinion, this isn't cool.
But my eyes have just finally adapted to 4K... I can't go back to 720p
I feel pretty much exactly the same... My only concern at this point, that hasn't had to be addressed yet, is how does Fields play when the game isn't "easy". Say we're down a couple scores, at night, on the road. How does the kid handle the moment?
This could be a game that finally affords him that moment.
Don't pay the troll toll my brethren. Don't click the forbidden fruit.
Hope it's an amicable departure. Furthermore, I hope the kids goes and achieves his goals wherever that may be.
Fine, since nobody else will say it... I want OSU to beat Nebraska. I really can't overstate how much I want OSU to win this Saturday. It would mean a lot to our program and the season in general.
It was rolling before he took the wheel. He just needs to keep it between the lines and avoid the potholes.
I know I’m not the only one who was praying that he wouldn’t drop the ball right before the goal line.
You've got elite talent with your running vision/shiftyness.
I've heard a lot about this over the years... Would love to actually see it on a collegiate football field.
Day didn't want him on the team. Told him to leave.
I'll take "Things Brett McMurphy would say" for $2000, Alex.
Why are there so many tOSU fans rooting for this kid to fail?
Pretty sure I have never seen anyone arbitrarily root for this kid to fail on this forum. (Arbitrarily is the key word here 804).
That being said, I have seen a large group who are very much willing to remind Tate, and his fanboys amongst us (not naming names), that your thumbs shouldn't write checks that your talent can't cash. #TeamTate had to kind of expect this type of foot in mouth disease.
What did he ever do/say that was a big deal at all?
^ This one can't be a serious question right?
