If J. Decatur goes to 141 and is better than D'Emilio (who really knows that question)..then there is a hole at 133. I don't think Heinselman is too far off from at least being top 16. He will finally grow into this weight but he really needs to up his motor and stamina

Romero finished the year ranked #6 at 174, but all 5 wrestlers in front of him are out of eligibility..OSU's strength is from 149-174 .  All could  be top 5.

I am older now and don't wear game jerseys anymore. Thinking about selling my 1995 Champion #14 Bobby Hoying scarlet and my 1998 Nike Joe Germaine white jerseys...or perhaps donating them to 11 Warriors for their fundraiser next year.

yes it would change my mind..but it ain't happening. In all of Brady's years in NE..it nver seemed like he had to  'carry' the team. He leads them well. He throws as pretty as ball as any who picked up a football..but God knows if he was in Detroit or Cleveland or Cincy..his career would have been over 10 yrs ago without any fanfare.

Comment 17 Mar 2020

I agree..IMO if guys like Peyton Manning, Phillip Rivers, Drew Brees, Bret Favre, Ben Rothlisburger, Aaron Rodgers had Brady's gig in NE..they would be the GOAT...especially Brees and Manning

This is the network Delaney crammed down everyone's throat all in the name of a little more money (at the time) than espn. It is also the network that lured such powerhouses as Rutgers and Maryland into the fold. The network that propelled Delaney into the richest commissioner in college athletics history and now the most compensated in retirement. 

and it all this comes with a substandard product .....

everyone introduced so far can pass for being pre-BB except for Crazy 8. He did not age well..or he just grew up. Without the name recognition, his character face would have been hard to place.

I tend to think this season is leading up to Kim giving up a career in law altogether and moving away. I can't envision Saul's personality in BB as having endured Kim being killed off, but it does seem like the storyline is heading towards her departure of some kind.

First concert I ever went to was MSB in mid 70's. Most of their stuff has grown old but Live at Tangiers is classic. Spanish Nights and Lover are sit by the fire sipping whiskey singing to your wife songs if there ever were any.

worst of the worse...most 70's and 80's music (and I grew up in that era)..I cannot listen to a classic rock radio station anymore...most country, rap, and heavy metal...and especially Rush, KISS, Queen, Skynard, Supertramp, Styx, Motley Crue, Mettallica, Black Sabbath, ...I could go on forever...lots of noise that was made in the name of music

from 2002 to 2015, Navy beat Army 14 straight. 17-19 from 97-15. Do you think that was any less of a rivalry because of this? Rivalries transcend records. History, pageantry, and significance creates and breaths rivalries. This will always be a rivalry, no matter how bad UM gets.

can't say I've ever heard his podcast; but, I think it was maybe last summer and everything had quieted down from the previous year that I found and read Courtney's blog. Certainly an interesting read. The take / perspective / opinion that was most revealing is that Courtney believes Urban knew or had heard of everything, she was sure of that..but she kind of let him off the hook of a damning responsibility because she says ZS was such a master manipulator and liar that he had nearly everyone fooled, including Urban, much of the OSU staff, and even her family.

Comment 23 Jan 2020

it seems to all even out in the end

what if....Tate Martell was the starting qb for OSU all last year?

what if....OSU doesn't intercept the 2 pt conversion at mich?

what if...(already mentioned) Barrett was marked short on 4th and 1?

what if....Cardale doesn't come in and score on Mich after Barrett's injury

4 losses to Mich instead of 4 wins?....this trumps any and all other what if's...^^^^^this would be unbearable...all these other things are just painful

Comment 18 Jan 2020

exactly.... Tavian Fester, the former 1st string rb at Clemson who transferred to archrival USC, or former 1st stringer Kelly Bryant, QB who left for Missouri ...both who I've read articles and heard interviews are pretty bitter about Clemson.....would have surely outed any improprieties.

My youngest son went to high school and is casual freinds with Hunter Renfrow. I know his father reasonably well. They have 6 children and they are very active in the church community here. I believe Hunter and his father would not stand for anything illegal in any shape or form of their lives. 

Get over the bagman and pay for play narrative...it ain't happening. Now does some get a better deal on a car or a discount meal here or there..absolutely...that goes on everywhere. 

I also know for a fact that USC/Clemson do encourage and help any of their players to accept the true cost of education loans offered to them through FAFSA. It is entirely legal and proper for a player at Clemson and OSU and anywhere else even when on full scholarship..to accept whatever else FAFSA says costs you to attend..like transportation etc. Someone out of state like ETN can probably get $10-20k  or more in loans..on top of free everything else. They don't need bagmen. ETN probably wants to be an All American, win a major award, set a rushing record at Clemson that would be hard to beat (he's already the leader rusher in school history..one more season might put it forever out of reach)

and then on top of all that..he can get an insurance policy that Clemson is allowed to pay the premium..it's not 1st round $$..but don't think it's a hardship either
