Comparing this situation to Martell’s at Miami is idiotic. White is almost certainly disappointed with how this season has gone for him on an individual level, and I’m sure that’s weighing on him, but consider the fact that that disappointment is compounded by his father slowly dying of a horrific disease. I feel awful for the kid.
He's not coming back. And I love JK, but IMO he is not currently in the conversation for greatest OSU RB ever. I know where he stands on the all-time rushing list, but *at this point* I don't put him in the same category as Archie, Zeke, and Eddie. He's gotta win a Heisman and/or a Natty to be in that conversation.
I agree. The only way I think we move to #2 is if we have an ugly win and LSU absolutely blows out Georgia.
What are some examples of "wokeness" displayed in the new Star Wars trilogy? Non-white and/or female protagonists? Is that the issue? I watched the movies and didn't pick up on its supposedly overt politics that have people like you so riled up, so maybe you can enlighten me.
My takeaway from these rankings is that Saturday will be all about style points for several teams. I think it's pretty clear at this point that LSU has effectively clinched a spot in the final four, regardless of whether they beat Georgia (though I think they will). So, assuming LSU and OSU both win, the #1 spot will come down to who wins more convincingly in their respective conference championship. The Bucks will have won four games against three top-15 teams, while LSU will have wins against four top-15 teams. Similarly, if Oklahoma and Utah both win, the committee will have a tough call: do you simply put in the team that won its conference title game more handily? Do you reward the Sooners for beating a top-10 team in Baylor? Or, does the committee put Utah in because a win over an Oregon whose only loss was to Auburn in the first game of the season and a single loss to a currently-ranked USC team comprise a better "body of work" than Oklahoma's? Really tough to say. One thing is for sure, though--this could be the most interesting and controversial Selection Sunday since 2014.
I made a promise last weekend to help chainsaw some wood up. I pinched my sciatic nerve but I still lived up to my promise regardless of my health/well being. My word means everything to me.
oh my god hahahahahahhahaha give me a fucking break
1) College football players don't face prosecution under the UCMJ for leaving a football team. Totally different context and incentive structure. Football is a business in which some athletes have an opportunity to make tens of millions of dollars; military service is not. Pretty bonkers comparison, imo.
2) Chase stuck around because he was facing, at most, a four-game suspension and he was not injured. Bosa, by all accounts, would not have been physically able to play until--at the earliest--the B1G championship, and even then would not have been at 100 percent health. Again, his decision involved a completely different calculus from Chase's. I don't see how the two can be compared.
Nick didn't come to Ohio State to play school. It's completely ridiculous to shit on the kid for not sticking around and maintaining his amateur status unnecessarily while taking classes for no reason other than to please weirdos like you who think you're owed anything from 19 and 20 year old kids who put their bodies and future earning potential on the line every Saturday so that you can get a dopamine rush as a byproduct of *their* hard work. Bosa made the smart call, and it's telling that his teammates supported him 100 percent in doing so.
Definitely Stefon Diggs or Deshaun Watson.
I'm not as hard on ESPN as some others on this website, but I will say it's straight up bizarre how so many analysts/pundits/etc at that network seem to be under the impression that OSU is the same program it was, say, 13 years ago. You routinely hear them talk about the talent gap between OSU and [insert SEC team here], as though Urban didn't turn Ohio State into arguably the top NFL talent factory in the country. Listening to their commentary about OSU and its players, you'd have no idea that this is the same program that produced the highest paid WR, best RB, best DE(s), and two of the top corners in the NFL over the last four years. You'd also have no idea that since the Florida and LSU losses, OSU has taken down the champion of every P5 conference besides the ACC, plus Notre Dame. I don't know where they get the idea that OSU doesn't show up for big games. It's just strange.
This team is considerably more talented than the '06 team. Not to say they didn't have good players, but it's true that there was a huge talent gap between the top teams in the SEC and B1G at the time, and that was glaringly obvious in the national championship game that year. That's no longer the case; OSU might be the most talented team in the country, and they're playing up to their potential. I've been an OSU fan my entire life, and this is the first season that I've been fully confident every single week that the Buckeyes will take care of business. I'll be shocked if this team is not in New Orleans on January 13th.
Urban still works for Drake. You know that, right?
He loves talking about "the moral of the story." Like, every thirty seconds.
Love this guy. Clearly smart as hell, extremely detail-oriented, a player's coach, and dripping with charisma. If I were a betting man, I'd put money on this guy winning national championships and/or Super Bowls as a head coach someday. He's got the "it" factor, for sure.
It's crazy to consider that JK needs just over 850 more yards to pass Zeke as the #2 all-time leading rusher in OSU history. Archie's record is probably untouchable, so that's a hell of an accomplishment.
I like LeBron and always appreciate his public support of the program, but if I remember correctly, he actually committed to Maryland when he was in high school. This was shortly after UMD won the national championship. Not sure why he bothered committing anywhere, really.
Well, yeah, of course he disagreed with them on that. It would be extremely bizarre if he came out and said, "You know what, I'm totally on board with being barred from leading the team through training camp and the first three games of the season, and I applaud the University administration for its decision." I don't think anyone would dispute that Urban was clearly pissed during that press conference. What we're discussing, though, is whether that experience irrevocably damaged his relationship with the University, and I think it's clear that it did not. If their relationship were "shot", as you put it, why would he still be working--even if he's only doing so nominally--for OSU? What incentive would either party have to maintain the employment relationship after his retirement? Neither OSU (and by extension, Michael Drake) nor Urban are behaving like there's any bad blood. I think OSU fans who insist that Urban hates the administration are projecting their own feelings onto him.
Which press conference? The suspension announcement or his retirement?
Either way, the relationship with the OSU admin is shot.
Are you aware that Urban Meyer is an assistant AD at OSU? In other words, he still works for Smith and Drake, and is himself a part of OSU administration.
Re: Miller's tweets--are freshmen allowed to have cars on campus now?
Why do you care?
Without looking at the numbers I would imagine that the Pac 12 is also up there as far as top academic conferences go--though maybe it's just top heavy. Cal, UCLA, and Stanford are obviously elite, and Washington and Colorado are very good schools, as well. Don't know about the rest, but I don't think there's another conference with three schools on the same level as Cal, UCLA, and Stanford.
What did I say? I don't remember.
Yeah, very familiar with these. I was just thrown off by him saying that his uncle is a college football coach.
