I think that the January swoon had more to do with Kyle Young’s appendix than with DJ Carton. He is the glue making plays on the boards , and on defense. When he was way less than 100%, well ... you saw it. And for those who doubt Holtmann, you have to give him all the credit for Kyle Young being here because he was going to whatever school Holtmann was coaching at.
Possibly Urban’s greatest recruit !
“Dale-o-mite is my name” ?
Thanks - just saw it
The video has to weigh in on this decisive of a move. If it was he said / she said, it might not have been so quick and clean. But the video indicates one of two things :
1) she was coerced into making the statement and that it really wasn’t consensual or
2) what she said in the video was true and it was consensual - but she still said it in a video
the first case is horrific and the 2nd still falls short of the standard
This is very important and should be shared. Can you share the studies or articles that contain these statistics ?
Hartline case could be different than most. How many NFL WR coaches have played , what, 9 years in the NFL , and made, say $20 million, before starting their coaching careers ? So the allure of a half million bump to go live in Philly or Indy to coach WRs just might not have much attraction at all when he is at home, his family is at home, and he is happy in a championship environment year in and out.
You might be right that the only team with more overall talent in the big ten than PSU is OSU, But it’s hard to say that PSU is a better team on the field than Wisconsin. Granted, PSU will have a more established and star rated backfield this year after the departure of JT, but somehow they will always pluck some dude from NJ and he will run wild behind that behemoth 3* line.
and then Jim Leonhard somehow builds a “sum much greater than the parts” defense as well (although they don’t compete for the services of Micah Parsons typ players.)
The Paterno sharting incident is first time news for me. What year was it ?
The crowd was into the game - that added to the broadcast. Does anyone remember if the AAFC had similar crowd reaction ?
and the uniforms looked more NFL worthy than the AAFC last year.
Ttun wasn’t even in the top 5 ? Did they not offer since he was a QB and they didn’t see him at another position for them because their talent is superior ?
The thing is, he won’t have the recruiting panache in Texas or California or with a school with a national footprint like ND. MSU is actually a perfect fit so he can continue to take advantage of leverage he has with Ohio high school coaches. Since ttun seems to think they can recruit nationally and has eschewed the Ohio pipeline they used to rob, and since OSU only wants the cream of the Ohio crop, that leaves Luke with an easy in with families of guys like Darren Lee whom Fick sold to Urban Meyer.
If they offer $3.5 mil, that’s a 40% boost to his current salary. Hard to turn down. You could say the talent level is in shambles now, but that means he only has one way to go.
You missed the whole point. You should be generous period because you matter to the couple. If the reception is at the local VFW and the dinner cost $12.50, would you give the couple a $25 gift card to Carabba ?
i didn’t overspend and I would have done the whole thing again for my friends and family - that was my choice and the gifts didn’t go to me.
You are right on Awlin. As the father of the bride this past October at a waterfront hotel in Sarasota Fl, there’s no way the guests were going to gift what the wedding weekend costs. It’s not a “this plate cost them $200 so we need to to gift $400 as a couple to break even”. Hell, that money goes to the couple anyway and the father of the bride doesn’t see a nickel - so there’s no breaking even. Your comment that this is what a young couple is going to start out with is dead on. So if people are close enough to be invited and to fly somewhere, then it’s exactly right to be generous to a couple whom you are close to !
Interesting that Harbaugh had no use for him at either level. I mean, it was so so bad that Sherman changed his position ? guys switch position by coach’s insight USUALLY, but who switch’s on their own and makes it anyway ? Gotta give Sherman a ton of credit.
yeah there are a lot of corners who are assholes - look at what all powerful Deion Sanders announced this week about the hall of fame not meaning anything anymore because they’re letting everyone in.
Almost all of them act like they just won the super bowl when they break up a pass. Maybe it’s part of the mental make up for many to play that position.
This would have been the year to be a scrappy team, get into the tourney, and let the chips fall because there are no truly dominant teams right now.
but do any of us really want to see this group ( it’s really not playing like a team in any measure) sneak in? I’m not defeatist, but we just aren’t one of the top 64 teams in the nation at 12th in our own conference and there never seems to be improvement from game to game.
She’s ok but it was in a wealthy area south of Nashville (Franklin) , and the police officer was downright shitty to her. Tore my heart out because I was on speaker phone and he wouldn’t talk to me. She’s fine and it wasn’t major damage to the car. I just wish I were a practicing attorney so I could go fight city hall myself - but she was at fault and it wouldn’t make sense to hire an attorney - I would just want to give them a piece of my northern mind. “To protect and serve” my ass. Thanks for asking
I wasn’t able to watch because my daughter was in a fender bender. Sounds like this was as bad. Basketball teams are much better when guys hit shots. We don’t have guys who can do that. Period.
Kevin, help me to understand your comment about Iowa and Penn State CFP appointees recusing themselves whenever the Buckeyes are being discussed. I thought recusal was required for discussions about their specific university. Like Gene Smith went “speak no evil” for Buckeye discussions when he was on the committee, but could participate for any other Big Ten schools.
I never wish the Cleveland Browns on ANY Buckeye alumni. (Sadly I’m a Browns fan) sorry about two drafts ago Denzel.
You make a great point about the AJ Hawk’s of the world , but I felt that we were moving in the speed direction more recently with the likes of Raekwon McMillan. I thought Browning looked to fit that same speed mold, I just wish he had the chance to play more reps to learn to be better positioned. You saw that he was in the game more against Clemson because of his clear speed advantage, but on big plays, he got caught with his nose in the wrong place too aggressively and trailing the play late.
That is a hilarious take about Georgia QB recruit. Hard to understand why the kid would choose Georgia after watching that disaster of an offensive game plan this year. Maybe he’s from there, as was Fields and Lawrence.
Anyone know what our 2021 QB commit McCord is ranked ?
Thanks for commemorating these games. Although we all have other games that we might bump into this list, like all of you, I remember where I watched, who I was with, and what was going on in my life. So in that respect, in the fall, Buckeye games serve as milestones in my life.
If there was a consistent trajectory upward, I’d be able to say that we have improved from the Thad Matta days that became quite dark in the last two seasons, culminating with a mass exodus of players. But the only trajectory I see isshitty play in January for two consecutive seasons. Play marked by no ability to make plays offensively, no flow offensively, and turnovers at an alarming rate.
“Group think” my friends, is a powerful influence.
