If you’ve ever had the experience of meeting anybody associated with CampusParc, you are probably like me and hope that a giant anvil falls on their building with everyone inside. I remember my fiance politely asking one of their attendees where she was allowed to park during a trip to the ARC and the CampusParc attendee started giving her lip for no reason. I had to take a few deep breaths to keep myself from doing something stupid.
An egghead professor once openly complained to Woody Hayes about the perceived special treatment he received for being head coach. Woody's laconic response was "I can do your job, but you can't do mine."
I keep hearing the same “zach smith has an axe to grind etc etc etc grain of salt etc etc” response by people who dont listen to his show whenever he comes out with a new revelation.
Josh Perry, on his own podcast yesterday, said that Zach has been truthful about what hes discussed on his show. Cardale has also corroborated some of what Smith has said. I never liked Smith when he was here and was glad when he was gone but, it does seem that he has more credibility than many want to admit.
Oh, dont worry. I know it’s still bad. But back in the early part of the decade it was other worldly atrocious. I’m talking, so bad that you are left speechless when reading the articles
I read Ramzy’s Bleacher Report Parody eight years ago when it came out. I forgot how hilarious and accurate it was.
Bleacher Report was astonishingly bad in those days. I remember doing a remote internship with them while I was studying journalism at OSU. My superiors kept getting mad at me because I kept writing traditional style articles that werent in a “top (insert number and subject)” format. They treated writing like an assembly line production. And the result was shit
Dan Patrick is a low-key OSU fan. He doesn't need ratings and he doesn't troll OSU fans
The Marc Smith reference just gave me Vietnam-like flashbacks from eight years ago. That was the most challenging subject I took at OSU and I didn’t even major in business (not because of Marc, but because accounting itself insanely hard).
I even saved Hundreds of printed pages worth of coursework from that class and keep it tucked away in a filing cabinet. Just for the hell of it.
It wont be a true destroyers game if “Dawg Man” doesnt show up and heckle injured players. Nor will it be if they dont have the Giant Eagle Get Go Zone.
National recruiting is being done successfully by all of the best programs in the country. Bama, Clemson and OSU all recruit heavily from across the country. The days of having a championship roster where 18+ of the 22 starters were in-state kids is practically over (at OSU AND everywhere else in the country).
Being a powerhouse school in a talent-rich state does not stop the need for national recruiting. The rosters of the 00-03 Miami Hurricanes, Urban Meyer's Florida Gators and every Alabama team were all heavily constructed with national talent.
OSU has won their two NCs this century with about 2/3 of their starters being from Ohio. I would say having 40-60% of their starters being in-state is a solid ratio going forward, especially with in-state guys filling the OL, TE, LB, RB and DB positions.
Can’t keep slow playing the in-state guys. Day isn’t going to have the National rep that Meyer has for at least a few years. Nail the local guys, build your reputation and then expand nationally.
I would just like to use this post as an opportunity to give a shout out to intelligible, concise and interesting forum topics.
I dont know how you can be satisfied by this line. Jordan is very clearly not a center and should be moved over to right guard. I have a hard time believing that we don't have anything better than Isaiah Prince at RT
This o line is not good.
David njoku is not good.
Tyrod taylor is not good.
I remember that the weather was sunny all throughout that game. Are you sure that you aren't confusing it with another
Note to the Athletic Dept: Charging out the ass for a bad matchup will hurt attendance
-McMurphy did considerable damage to his reputation by publishing this story.
-Zach was treating the WHAC like it’s Club Princeton, which would explain the substandard play by his unit.
-What he orders with his own money is nobody’s business.
-This has nothing to do with Urban or the environment he’s created at the facility, despite what fools like Tim Brando, Tom Arnold and finebaum are saying on twitter
-I’m cackling at the thought of McMurphy going to news outlets and asking them if they want to see pics of zach’s penis
-Zach is kinky, and that’s perfectly ok. I myself happen to be very enthusiastic about coitus.
-A visit to the White House is a once-in-a-lifetime moment, So I can’t blame him if he wanted to get his genitals involved in that day’s festivities. I will, however, be disappointed if a photo surfaces of his penis during the Earle Bruce funeral. That would be in poor taste
Gotcha. I hope that's what he's referring to. Because this seems like a trade that will help rewrite the wrong moves this team has made over the last several years.
Ramzy is out of his mind for hating this trade (from a Cleveland perspective).
Coleman will be forgotten from NFL circles within a few years. But those who do remember him will do so with him being the receiver who was taken ahead of Michael Thomas and the draft pick that was chosen instead of Wentz or Ezekiel Elliot.
Didnt zach’s attorney say that zach withheld important details from urban so that coach could be protected and have plausible deniability from any fallout?
Im going to go out on a limb and declare zach smith is the worst person, both in terms of behavior and performance, thats ever been associated with this program.
It’s enraging and absolutely baffling how much Smith was coddled by Urban and Earle. He was always the Fredo of the staff and, apparently, didnt have to meet the same rigorous standards as the orher members of the staff.
Urban never should have acquiesced to Earle when it came to hiring and retaining this clown.
Curiously, I found this link to a compilation from the 2002 season (sorry for the separate link. I can't figure out how to post youtube videos on this site). At the 10:10 mark you can see a crowd shot of pre-Buck-I-Guy Chubb dressed in normal clothes and sitting in what appears to be a seat that he didn't have to access by shoving children out of the aisle. Simpler times
Apparently the Campus Partners want to turn the south campus Gateway into a setting for a Cormac McCarthy novel. I was never a huge Ugly Tuna guy but until today that place was the last bastion of life and energy that hadn’t been squeezed out of the gateway by OSU’s real estate arm.
Nobody will go to the SC gateway anymore except a wandering band of raving derelects who will turn one of the many empty sites on the property into a makeshift bunker for the insane. The only noises to be heard there will be the rustling of passing tumbleweeds and the eerie howl of the wind.
RIP Fish Bowls on wednesday nights and the ugly hour
