De’Anthony Thomas, Knowshon Moreno, Amari Cooper, Devin Hester, Pat White, Steve Slaton, and Tavon Austin. I like playmakers.
This is more of a positive in the sense that you can call your friends and/or text them when you’re drunk at the stadium and don’t know their location. Plus, checking on scores will be nice.
Orlando Pace was heck of a basketball player, as well. I’m fairly certain he broke a backboard during his time at Sandusky.
For those who haven’t been to Sandusky in awhile, the town is trending up. A lot of good businesses coming in and a revamped downtown area. I still go back a few times a year, but obviously summer is the best time to visit.
Alright.... who’s gonna say it?
I would feel feel aggrieved if I was McFarland, as well. It took an almost 300 yard rushing performance for a coach to come up to you and say “hey, maybe I should have recruited you harder.” It almost seems like a backhanded compliment. Ultimately, both schools got what they wanted with Dobbins and McFarland.
I’ve been to the 2015 NCG, and essentially every Ohio State classic since then, but I’m going to go with the Cavs unveiling the championship banner during the 2016 season opener. Game 1 of the World Series was also that night, and after the Cavs blew out the Knicks, I went across the street to watch the Indians beat the Cubs on a huge screen in between the two stadiums. I saw Roberto Perez’s home run ball physically enter the bleachers, so that was pretty cool.
I never thought he would last as long as he did in the NBA. Credit to Kosta and his agent.
I agree, he didn’t say anything inaccurate, but I don’t understand the need to publicly say something like that. Jim isn’t exactly an angel, either.
You fucking spent the night at a teenager’s house.
I wasn’t expecting my alma mater to be so high. The teams Brandon Schnittker were a part of in 1999 and 2000 were some of the best I’ve seen in high school football. Just absolutely littered with track and football stars.
Another athletic note about Perkins: Scott Fry still holds the cross country 5k meters state record at 14:50 in 1985 and no one has really ever come close to breaking it.
LSU should probably focus more on actually scoring a touchdown versus Alabama before worrying about winning the game. I think Joe will have a very good season, but LSU hasn’t beaten Alabama since 2011 for a reason.
The article itself is a very good one. I’d love to have a few beers with Joe.
Jesse Owens South was always the place to be to watch the football and basketball players destroy kids, at least during my years at OSU.
No one big. Dakota Mathias and Reggie McAdams in basketball, a WR who is in the NFL right now, and an average corner who committed to Michigan but ended up transferring to Rutgers after a few years.
I would add to the famous alumni one of my favorite authors, Hanif Abdurraqib. His most recent work, “Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes to A Tribe Called Quest”, is brilliant.
I would love to know why, after 26 films of the series, it has only now officially jumped the shark.
These are just things that are going to happen.
I tend to get more information about other teams on 11W than I do on that team’s site. This is the best college football blog out there.
I’d compare Fleming to Devin Smith, Gee Scott to Larry Fitzgerald, Cooper to Rondale Moore, and Smith-Njigba to Rashard Higgins.
I worked in Granville for a bit and loved it. The town is beautiful and the people are great.
Not sure I understand why he needs to gain weight. At 5’8”, he already has a stocky body. I think the strength staff is probably more focused on increasing his strength and explosiveness as an athlete. You hardly ever see slot receivers weigh over 200 pounds, even in the NFL.
Next year might be the most talented assortment of receivers ever at OSU. Extremely balanced, as well. Jameson and Julian to take the top off and make big plays, Smith-Njigba and Scott to handle the outside, Wilson and Olave as all-around playmakers, Mookie and Gill to handle the slot. Fields has to be excited.
The only thing I agree with is that it has become extremely top heavy, with only about 6-7 teams being realistic options for the playoffs every season.
Other than that, piss off. College football is the greatest sport in the world.
I don’t think anyone knows what Urban truly wants, even Urban himself. He always seems like he wants to have his cake and eat it too. Either way, Ohio State had him as a coach at the perfect time and I think he left at the perfect time. I have a lot of confidence in Day.
The era of Pulisic, McKennie, Sargent, Weah, Adams, and Pomykal can’t get here soon enough. Hopefully Berhalter will be gone before he ruins it.
Crap subs from Berhalter, Bradley should have been retired years ago, Zardes and Altidore can’t do their jobs. Shameful 2nd half after such an inspiring 1st.
