In 2002, when Danny Weurffel and Shane Matthews were on the Redskins, they wore 7 and 9, respectively, during mini camps and the s*#t storm that errupted in the DC area was ridiculous.  Weurffel eventually changed to 17 and Matthews to 6.

Shane Matthews even contacted Sonny Jurgensen and got his okay to wear 9, and Theismann told Weurffel to wear 7, after attending a mini camp.

Steve Spurrier and the Redskins eventually asked them to change numbers.

The whole thing is kind of ridiculous. Either retire the number or issue it.  Kissing the ring of Joe Theismann in order to wear 7 is a bit much.

One thing that’s abundantly clear in my opinion, urban did him wrong. He talks about “some coach” talking shit about him to nfl scouts and that’s why he didn’t go pro after the NC.

What Cardale construes as "talking shit about him", could just be an honest assessment from the coach that Cardale disagrees with, or that he is unable to accept.

I have a feeling that they will not just use the coaching change, but also the circumstances surrounding it.  They will likely say that Ohio State and Meyer knew that Meyer was dealing with health issues, but the extent of them, and potential impact, were not made clear to Tate when he was being recruited. That is, had Tate known Meyer was having health issues and that he would not be there for his full 4/5 years, he would not have come to Ohio State.  As well, I believe Zach Smith was the lead recruiter for Gorman, if I recall correctly, so I anticipate Tate's attorney mentioning the OSU investigation regarding that matter, Smith's firing, and Meyer's suspension.

Perhaps we just care more? Not sure, but not using the letter "M" during Michigan week, referring to them as TTUN or TSUN, our coaches knowing how many days until the next edition of "The Game". Do they do anything like that?

They refer to Ohio State as 'Ohio'. They smash buckeye nuts with a hammer on Bo Schembechler's grave. They had countdown clocks in their facility prior to Harbaugh's arrival, and he removed. them.

FWIW, I've been to both games at Maryland and had no issues with parking, nor getting in to the stadium. I did not find the experience any different, worse or better, than any other stadium I've been to.

This is the alternate uniform with the sublimated houndstooth pattern in the numbers and on the helmet stripe.

Comment 06 Nov 2018

How much did you have to drink prior to the game as they never wore those uniforms.

This uniform concept was designed by Gage LaGreca for the audience at Uniform Critics. It is a prototype and there are no plans by Nike to have the team wear this in an upcoming game. Gage is a graphic designer based out of Greenville, South Carolina.

Actually the report states:

The two discussed at that time whether the media could get access to Coach Meyer’s phone, and specifically discussed how to adjust the settings on Meyer’s phone so that text messages older than one year would be deleted. 

It specifically does not state that Meyer "asked" about the phones setting.

You said you know something, so out with it already. 

I agree, what is the point of not posting what you know.

When the story first broke, Finebaum immediately said Meyer would be fired. 

When Ohio State put Meyer on administrative leave Finebaum said it was just so that a buyout could be negotiated, or so Ohio State could determine grounds to fire Meyer with cause.

Now that Meyer is suspended for three games, Finebaum says that Meyer won't coach in 2019.

Why anyone gives anything this guy says one bit of credibility is beyond me.

LSU with Jeaux B hosting the U in Death Valley? Tall order for the Canes.

FWIW, this game is at Jerry's World in Arlington,Texas.
