Exactly. He was pure class and put the game first and wasn't worried about promoting his own voice. Polar opposite of clowns like Vitale who think people are watching to hear their tired schtick.
If memory serves, Bollman was actually a very good and well respected o-line coach before becoming everyone's favorite former offensive coordinator whipping boy. So from that aspect it makes sense.
Hope Brewster gets the shot he so clearly really wants.
Yes, once you are locked in, you are locked in. Now, the real "gamble" is if you bet OSU to cover the 6 already and not think they will win by 7,8 or 9 points, then you could now also bet USC +10. Pretty ballsy move, but if the numbers between 6-10 hit you cash in big, and you are somewhat hedged on any other outcome (you win one bet, lose the other, but have to pay the juice).
Just as an FYI - he returned to his hometown of Brecksville and up until this past season had been the offensive coordinator for the Brecksville-Broadview Heights HS team. His offenses were always prolific (many years due to his very talented sons). My son played for him for 2 years. Heck of a coach and a good guy.
I love this kind of family drama (when I am not involved). When will your puppy chips run out? Will the dog drop another log on the carpet? How long before the MIL can take no more and makes a snide comment about you and/or the dog? This is good stuff, I want more.
Wow, didn't expect to see the subcockle reference. Well played!
Agreed, this is going to be fun to re-watch (4th quarter anyway). The officiating was shit, but sadly that is the standard in the B10 anymore.
Barrett certainly became more relevant in the Heisman race, but Barkley is a freaking beast. Nothing but respect for him. And you are right, the next few years are going to be really interesting between us.
This all looks like shit. Just stop the insanity already.
I was trying to remember who used to use footnotes all the time. Thanks for reminding me it was Sarah. I enjoyed her writing and loved the footnotes.
So, did they convert the third down?
I'd buy that on a t-shirt
I had forgotten about that until I watched the video. Was a very curious decision by their coach indeed. Thankfully it worked out, and it never gets old watching those highlights.
In my mind, he will always be "The Dick from French Lick". As a Sixers fan growing up - screw Larry Bird.
Oh come on, how can we hate on you if you make a sensible, coherent post? Sheesh......
Well, he did say he was asking for a friend, so it isn't like he wasn't sure.
I know you aren't being serious, but they just hired a new guy at Y State, who happens to be the uncle of my son's girlfriend. Super excited to see what he can do there this year.
Same thing I just heard.
I admit I am one of those people that kind of forgot about him, and I cannot wait to see Booker on the field with Baker and Worley this fall. Good lord this front 7 is going to be a handful.
As a follow up - the actual court is still being used:
Have you driven past the old Richfield Coliseum location recently? You would never even know anything even used to be there. Just an unremarkable field right next to a now seemingly oddly placed highway exit ramp.
Certainly pulling for him, but after this long struggle with the knee issues, I look at anything he can give us in the fall as icing on the cake. Trying to keep expectations very low and hopefully he can surprise us and stay healthy for at least a chunk of the season.
If that is their wish, I will grant it. How can you possibly back Beth Mowins as your play by play announcer with a straight face? Are they that desperate to save cash?
