What was the deal with Stan Drayton? I remember him leaving for the Bears, but now he is at Texas with Herman. Seems he did a good job here with Hyde and Zeke, any reason he wouldn't be on the list for potential replacements if Alford leaves? Have to think Herman's status at Texas might make it wise to jump off a potentially sinking ship.
This is some quality content. Thanks Zack.
I have seen Kenny several times this year on the sidelines when watching the game, and embracing Chase after the win last Saturday. I always wondered who he was, because he looked like he could line up and play, and always seems very passionate Great to know he is all Buckeye and possibly LJ's successor.
That speech to the team in the article gave me some Coach Coombs vibes.......pretty special.
Yes, the Buckeyes are more battle tested, which can provide an advantage. Clemson, however, is more "playoff" battle tested, considering the last four years. Some could argue that provides a slight advantage.
At the end of the day, both teams are capable of winning this game. I can't wait, it's going to be an epic battle.
Some may not like this response, but do you blame them? Their only kryptonite in the last four years has been Alabama in the playoffs. They have every right to be over confident.
That all being said, them underestimating the Buckeyes will prove to be a mistake.
I have another Michigan related question and did not want to start another thread.
How does Michigan not get a violation for Harbaugh clearly chewing during every game? I seem to remember Ohio State self reporting Herman and maybe Vrabel at some point. Every time the camera was on Harbaugh you could see the chew in the side of his mouth and the juice on his teeth. (I chewed for many years so I know what I am seeing).
Inches away, like you were on the sideline? In what capacity?
"I think it was good to establish the run early on."
"I kind of just wanted to pound on them a little bit and take the stinger out of them."
Ryan Day is fu*king savage. He was just toying with Penn State. He could beat them any number of ways, but decided to go right after their run defense.
That team up north is in for a world of hurt.
So...if you could choose one former Buckeye to hang out with and watch The Game on Saturday, which former player or coach would you choose?
It wasn't easy, I had a horrendous headache for a few days, but well worth it in the end.
It's been about a year since I have had any caffeine, I used to be a coffee drinker in the morning, and energy drink/coffee in the afternoon. Was completely addicted to caffeine. Gave both up for just water.
I can't believe how much better I feel. I think most of that is because I am no longer dehydrated all the time.
It was a cold fall day, and the recess playground was ripe with energy. The touch football recess championship was taking place, and I, in all my glory, was the quarterback for the favorite team. My best friend was the star receiver, we were destined for a big day. This was going to be the stuff legends were made of.
The field was blacktop, with a thin strip of grass along the building edges marking the out of bounds. We were tough 5th graders, so slips and falls resulted in battle scars of scraped skin and bruises, badges of honor really. We were up 2 scores with 10 minutes of recess left to go, when I dropped back and my buddy, after catching 2 touchdown passes, was finally being double teamed. I saw an opening, so I took off. I made two defenders miss, and headed towards the basketball hoop (endzone). Suddenly, defenders were closing in, and I b-lined towards the sideline to pick up an extra few yards.
I let up as I approached 5 foot grass strip, but when I hit the grass, my feet slipped, thrusting me head first into the corner of the brick building. Dazed, I started to head back to the huddle, determined to add to our lead. To my surprise, everyone was looking at me with a panicked look. As my buddy approached, he grabbed my arm. As I brought my hand to my head, a hand full of red greeted my eyes, at which point I got a little dizzy. it seems, the building had won that play, creating a nice gash to my head.
My buddy walked me to the office, all the while his new white jacket was getting covered in blood from me leaning against him. As he waited with me in the office for my mom to arrive to take me to the ER, our team, minus its two best players, surrendered the lead and we lost the game.
To this day, I am haunted by the fact that we lost the game under such circumstances. The game should have been paused considering the situation, 22 stitches to the head should have cancelled the rest of recess that day, but alas, it did not. and the championship was lost, A moment of greatness was lost on the field that day. as well as a $25 TJ Maxx white jacket that my buddy's mom never let me live down.
You are doing it wrong.
I'll second this recommendation. Have gotten all of my dress clothes, including suits, jackets, dress shirts, dress pants, ties, etc at Brooks Brothers.
Played linebacker and fullback in high school, had a few opportunities to play at a couple of ivy league schools, but decided against playing at the next level, mostly due to some head injuries (back in the late 90's, concussions were just called "getting your bell rung").
i think there is a huge difference between playing in high school and at high level D1 program. I don't think I have any more appreciation or understanding than someone who has never played the game.
Maybe if your thread asked "How Long Should Miles be Suspended?" and not if he should be banned permanently, it wouldn't be receiving the downvotes. But what do I know. I had a thread downvoted into oblivion yesterday.
I'm a huge browns fan, and am embarrassed by this whole situation. I don't think MG should be banned permanently, but I am thinking something in the 6 game range. You just can't swing a helmet at someone's head, especially if that person is not wearing a helmet.
Hunt looking good
Thanks for the thread Loga.
Missed the field goal. Great start for the Browns.
I was sort of expecting more responses like this Q Juice. I agree, a shootout versus a top team would be tough to win with Chug, but certainly within the realm of possibility.
I think back to 2014 and the defense was nowhere near as good as this unit, and the offense was probably a slight notch below the current offense. The offense would certainly lose some of it's balance, but I would trust Day to game plan around some of Chug's limitations.
Many thought Cardale would be too.
I don't think Chug would have to win the games. Rely on the defense and Dobbins, make life easy for the quarterback.
I for one would love to see him getting more carries.
Nah, I'm good with Dobbins and Teague, and I've been a huge Demario fan since day 1.
Which one of you loaned Chase the money?
This is a bad take.
