Good point. And I didn't realize Jalin Marshall was a 5 star, kind of shocked by that. But wasn't he more of a QB in high school?
Fair, I admit I watched PrimeTime in its heyday every week. But like everything else the act got stale.
MNF with Booger is atrocious. Almost makes me yearn for Dennis Miller to be back in the booth. Almost.
Couldn't agree more on Berman. Please just go away and stay away. Why they decided to bring him back on ESPN this year I will never know.
And yea, Corso is just hard to watch at all. Sad and cringy, he seems lost on the set, and it's Herbstreit's job to babysit him and keep him on track
Oh no, someone said a potty word!!
I never understood how people get so worked up over a "dirty" word. It's the words intent that matters, not the sound the word makes. You can say he meanest, rudest things imaginable without ever swearing. The sooner people stop focusing on what they have been taught to believe is a bad word and instead focus on the message, the better.
Gambling rule #1 - don't bet with your heart.
I don't *want* Herman to ever win, but feels like that's too many points in a rivalry game. I imagine that is the rationale for most picking Texas.
My thought was he should stop wasting his Saturday's watching his team build false hope only to lose horrifically when it matters most and instead spend some time on that lawn, that is one trashy back yard.
OMG, I forgot how awful/awesome this show was. As a kid the Bigfoot episode really freaked me out, I thought Steve had met his match. Thanks for this blast from the past.
It's like the sound effects are barely half-assedly attached to the action, so cringe worthy to see it now.
Typical first game of the season, with lots of sloppy penalties and turnovers. But I agree, Cinci is going to be a tough out for sure - Ridder looks much improved from last year and they have a good ground game (although banged up) and as always a solid defense. But, they wont have the cozy confines of Nippert and a jacked up crowd backing them next Saturday.
Reyes is the prize of the deal, not Puig, not that Puig is bad, he's just a free agent in a couple months. Reyes is under team control until 2025, is a developing into a monster power hitter and they can play him at DH since his defense blows. And they got a decent pitching prospect, Logan Allen, from the Padres as well. Great deal for the Tribe in my eyes.
Lighten up Francis - I find it funny.
Did anyone else find this hilarious:
"A week after sending the message, a graduate assistant found the mistake while reviewing Davis' texts"
Being a Grad assistant sure sounds glamorous. Sifting through assistant coaches texts looking for violations.
They only looked at 1998 to present. Pace was gone by then.
I was going to post almost this same thing - great article (thanks Dan Hope - some great writing here) and it sure beats the "who will start at the 2 open LB spots" articles that pepper the off season landscape.
I would place Tennessee in that same category as LSU - always highly ranked (and for them, 15 counts as "highly ranked"), never delivers.
Great rundown. And I am ashamed to admit I was on he Mason bandwagon. I was OK with the Tressel hire, just wasn't convinced he could do it on the biggest stage.
In regards to Spielman, I recall reading that Geiger was blown away by Spielman's interview especially since as you said he was just doing it as a courtesy to an OSU great, but just couldn't hire a guy with basically no experience.
I mean, technically he DID make it which is kind of amazing. Just glad no one standing on the deck got crushed.
Thanks for the Braxton highlight link. Clearly he was a much better passer before his shoulder issues, he hit a ton of guys deep and in stride. The other thing that jumped out was how much I miss Jake Stoneburner, man what a weapon he was. Insert "will they finally use the tight end more this year" comment here.....
My favorite part is watching the DB's reaction - when he sees McLaurin with the ball he does a double take and you can almost hear him saying "how the hell did you catch that?". He just kind of gives a helpless half shrug at the end too, you almost feel bad for the defender, haha.
You can say that again.
Love that the guy is sticking to his word and getting the 1st Ohio Battery tattoo on his ass. And their website looks vaguely familiar, can't quite figure out where I have seen that layout before....
I have it on a good source (my father) that "submarine races" were occurring as early as fall quarter 1951.
I loved that Chernobyl video but have so many more questions. I could have watched an hour on them learning about their lives now, seems insane that they live there.
Thanks, hope Andre keeps rolling. Woods sounds like he is killing too.
Not watching but just checked the box and only 1 minute in the first half for Ahrens? Can't complain with the lead, but that seems odd.
Would have never guessed that Weber only outweighs Kyler Murray by 4 pounds. That seems impossible to me.
