He couldn't have gotten cut at a better time - there are a ton of QB injuries. Darnold, Brees, Roethlisberger, Siemian, Foles - even Cam Newton is hobbled. I hope he gets a chance to be on an actual roster somewhere.
JT Barrett also waived by the Seahawks. Wow - Pryor, Braxton, JT, Cardale all cut on the same day.
Just noticed the Texans cuts weren't on that link. Added Dixon and Sprinkle to the cuts list.
Wouldn’t you think the best players on offense would want to win play for an offensive genius like Harrbaugh? (/sarcasm)
"Matt Vrabel" aka Piqua's own Matt Finkes!
Watching those breakdowns makes me (re)realize how much faster our linebackers need to play this season.
If my math (finger counting) is right, this will be Pryor’s 8th year of NFL service. At one point, ten years was the benchmark to max out your NFL pension (not sure if that’s still the case). No matter your opinion of him, you have to give him credit for hanging on so long. A lot of people, including me, would have never predicted 8 years for him when he left Ohio State.
When Yurcich was hired the first thing I noticed looking at video of his offense was they utilize a fullback/TE-hybrid. I wonder if the new normal will be to have a guy or two like that on the roster?
Does he qualify for a sixth-year medical? Is 2019 his last shot or will he get another shot? Anyone know?
You're quick research supports many, many that have been done over the years:
I think EDSBS gets credit for the first definitive study in 2010. You'll even find an old post from me 6 or 7 years ago doing the stats from those days.
It would be amazing if LJ stays, but I would not be surprised if he took this opportunity to announce his retirement.
The safety play has been pretty spotty. Watch the playside safety on this play on the last drive of the game.
For 1 and 2, I think those answers are easily validated by the attorneys on the investigating committee.
For #3, what would they ask Courtney exactly? If it's true that the Powell police notified them, they already knew from the police report what Courtney was alleging. How much investigation is needed or required beyond what the police and prosecutor were already doing?
4) My understanding was that he was "detained" only in the sense that the police typically (or are required to) separate the husband and wife but unless he was arrested there would be no record.
We do, indeed, have to wait this out - I have some faith in the committee. I would assume that 14 days was given as an estimate because they already see they have most of what there is to know.
Yeah I agree. I firmly believe Urban was reacting to the original story that Zach had been arrested for domestic violence in 2015 to which he replied that they looked into it (the alleged domestic violence) and there was nothing (no evidence to back the allegation) - I don't know how someone writes a story like that (that Zach was arrested).
To me, it seems pretty clear.
These questions have probably been asked before but --
Can you be held in violation retroactively for terms added to your contract? Can he be held responsible for the new Title IX reporting clause added to his contract in April apply to all of his previous actions even from years before?
Is the alleged incident even covered by Title IX? My understanding is that Title IX applies to protection for female students -- not for all females connected in any way to a college or university. Is that incorrect?
I assume there will be some sort of creative defensive scoring bonus points. First team D Vs. First team O - I like it!
Burrow does seem to be the better runner of the two. I honestly think Urban Meyer looked at the Cardale Jones run to the NC and thought his most potent offense going forward would be built around a "devastating play action pass" offense that stretched the field vertically. After that theory fizzled at the start of the following year, he went back to JT and more running and horizontal passing.
I could be wrong on the timing but maybe that time period led him to recruit the less mobile big armed QBs - Haskins and Burrow.
I remember seeing a shot of the entire south stands on TV in the 1st half and it was 99% full. Don't recall seeing the upper decks though.
I also wonder how much the UK basketball program and the small possibility of playing both sports at UK tugged at "Blue" Smith. Quite a feat to sign this kids especially considering OSU's superstitious aversion to all things blue. AND the fact that UK is the home of Big Blue!
Watched him play this weekend - he looks like a big-time prospect (if they would have thrown him the ball more).
Probably no one remembers OVAL pizza the all time worst, cheapest pizza that, back in my day, you could pickup for $4.99 for an extra large. It would leave a distinctive long-lasting wet cardboard smell in the elevator for hours. The cheese was so thick and plastic-y that I once inadvertently buried an Oval pizza box under newspapers and laundry - only to find it again two weeks later, microwave it and it tasted like new (which, to be honest, wasn't good anyway)! The plastic cheese layer was impervious even to salmonella!
No respect for Donato's pizza? The founder's favorite with banana peppers ranks very high on my all-time list.
The late-great Flying Pizza just north of 15th gets an honorable mention - walking home from class eating a New York-style slice with meatballs ....fuhgeddaboudit.
Great article and great example of our scheme at work. Would be interested to see what those other teams did to stop it - was it usually scheme or execution?
