Ah, poor Blu . Already resigned to yet another November defeat. You'd think he'd be used to it by now...
74 gave ya UV to counter whatever fool gave a DV.
As much as I hate to admit it , LSU's four wins over top 15 teams likely will be #1 this week and the Bucks #2. Clemson, Bama and/or Oregon make the top 4. Minny should be in the top 10 .
I believe he is referencing the number of comments on the subject ...
Boomer and damn proud of it. Graduated Hs 'back in the summer of 69 and played my six string till my fingers bled '. Watched Neil Armstrong (along with 500 million other humans) walk on the moon 5 days before my 18th birthday . On campus Sept 1st that year, witnessed the riots of May 1970 as I watched the "radicals" and national guardsmen go back and forth on the Oval from the steps of Brown Hall. It was an interesting time to say the least.
Anyone else notice the incorrect info stating " OSU hosted Wisconsin two weeks ago and will welcome Penn State NEXT SATURDAY". Have I missed that the Bucks changed game dates with Rutgers or something? Inquiring minds need to know...have to babysit the grandkids next weekend. Thanx in advance...
Had an eight track in my 66 Mustang & one of my favs was Sly and Family Stone and the 1969 hit Let Me Take You Higher famous line....BOOM SHAKALAKA !! Congrats to Coach Hartline and Mr Harrison Jr. Go Bucks!
Hiny ...and I bet you were a bard in the old days. Nicely spun story. Looking forward to future chapters as they are written...
Nicely done Suomi. Now find/run one in @ month that says Beat Blue ;)
...but since Fox's Big Noon Kickoff show was gonna be In Cbus just might have changed Gameday's thinking a little ;)
Easy there NB. The actual heading of this thread is Evening Games Pt 2. So technically the ALCS qualifies as such...and since the Columbus Clippers were a Yankee farm team for nearly three decades...there would be some local interest as well.
Thanx Andy. I knew that PSU had won several national titles( eight of last ten actually !!) and Sanderson is the common denominator.
So the unanswered question is : What does the PSU regional training center offer/have that OSU's center doesn't? Or is just a change of scenery in hopes of achieving a different outcome ??
I don't understand why it might be culturally averse for an alum to wear a jersey to his colleges' games while men our age and older do the same (and worse--see Raider fans for example) for professional teams when wearing some millionaires jersey number .
R22--If you are new to the forum (welcome!) I believe there is a introductory period before you can UV or DV.
Let us know when you grow up.
Those old and elderly old farts have forgotten more Buckeye lore than you mostly likely will ever know. Take it easy on them now...some day YOU will be walking in their shoes and hearing the same dissenting remarks from the 'younger crowd' ;)
If a student gets paid for endorsements , what happens to his/hers devotion to continue attending classes? What happens to the no "I" in team and the inevitable resentment from fellow team members? And those who WILL be getting these extra monies are the most likely the SAME players who have a pro career opportunity in their futures. So how does this improve the average collegiate player's economic situation since more often than not ONLY the top stars will be compensated?
"Me too" referred to all the other athletes from lesser sports who would want some compensation as well. But mostly referred to the comment Newsom made in the NYTimes article that he essentially dared the NCAA to expel the schools in Cali who would decide to participate calling it being a "threat" he wasn't too worried about. Sorry you took the term personally. This would in effect be opening Pandora's Box and amateur athletics would never be the same.
don't bet the mortgage on it. Too many variables to cover for this to go nationwide anytime soon.
and just how to you equally distribute that money among all the athletic teams? "and IF you say you know --you aren't being honest" with everyone else . Cut the me too crap.
so stating the obvious and factual (thousands are leaving the state annually while hundreds of thousands more are homeless) that California is hurting itself economically violates the policy? Wow.
If given a free education, a chance to make millions in pro ball and/or set up with job connections that others don't have access to; yeah they have gotten their share of the "earnings" . And usually only those with big names or potential are the ones that have their likenesses utilized and stand to gain from all of the above.
..which counters the "recruiting advantage " , right?
