This is actually pretty terrifying that the accusation of rape is weaponized like that...
This is also what causes me pause as well... Like reading the headline, especially being a #GirlDad, you're immediately disgusted and defensive... Reading the details though, it sounds more like she just wanted to deal with Riep, possibly got pressured into a threesome, and now the anxiety of that causes this result... now I'm not trying to be extra when I mention this...but I know SOME of y'all don't have vanilla missionary... and a LOT of women like to be choked during intercourse... so it began as consensual...then Wint came in and allegedly forced oral sex on her... though it does say she was asked if he could join. Consent at ANYTIME can be revoked so there's something to that...BUT...
They're both OSU football players...and girls can easily be embarrassed by gaining the "slut" reputation, especially from athletes and some don't care at all... I mean hell, I was Ubering a dude who's sister's bestie was hooking up w/ J.K. Dobbins after he slid into her DMs on IG... and we live in the #MeToo era... so I would make sure I got consent before AND after if I was them, but if they have recorded consent on video AFTER and she doesn't seem like she's under duress or coercion in an admission of consent, then the prosecution could have a tough time making that stick...
I'd wager the truth is somewhat clouded in the midst of all of that...but to label these young men as brutal rapists before they've had their day in court is simply being crass toward the entirety of the situation.
Went from a liability, to a scapegoat, to a straight up DOG... what an amazing arc of progression. It warms my see so many 11Wers showing him love after all the hell he caught here.
Gray pants, and either all white and scarlet gear/shoes or all black and scarlet gear/shoes.
I think they'll push each other to be great like all of BIA has done. I'm sure Arnette and Fuller were pushing Okudah and Wade and vice versa. I'm sure they push Cam Brown, Sevyn Banks, and Josh Proctor. That's the culture of that room. Don't sleep on a healthy Williamson either.
Phillips might have a higher floor and better technique right now, but putting in the work with Watts and Lejond will prove fruitful, especially if it's Coombs.
Coombs wouldn't have to change his style of coaching for the DBs. The concepts are very similar, especially having 3 corners and 1 single high safety. In Chris Ash's Quarters D, Webb and Fuller had to cover in man more often. When Schiano took over, that style was more cover-3 x 1 which is in line with what we did this year, and we had Lattimore, Conley, Ward, and Hooker in that defense which created plenty of turnovers and further established the BIA brand.
I'm sure it will. Carman hasn't faced anyone of Chase's caliber, but he's no slouch. All ACC 1st Team I believe and hasn't allowed a sack all season.
I get the strong feeling the team is going to come out with this same kind of attitude. Dabo's attempts with his team feel forced, while Day and our Buckeyes will be genuinely pissed off. Setting the tone early is another element that could be the difference in the game.
I just need someone to explain to me how the narrative gives Wisconsin enough respect that if OSU lost a close game, they could still get in as the #4 seed over the Big 12 Champion Sooners, but the fact they were dominant, 27-0 in the second half, against a third straight top 10 opponent isn't enough to stay #1???
LSU beat an admittedly depleted Georgia team who've had a stingy defense (4th) and the 40th ranked scoring offense this season. Everyone was saying that the Dawgs would struggle scoring to keep up with LSU...but now they're trying to sell us that LSU "fixed" their defense because they blitzed the 40th, 62nd, and 110th scoring offenses (accompanied by the 4th, 32nd, and 111th scoring defenses respectively) in Arkansas, Texas A&M, and Georgia, that they suddenly have a better resume?
Meanwhile OSU's last three? 22nd (24th), 38th (21st), 17th (9th).
Tell these people to stop insulting our intelligence with this SEC bullshit.
Tyreke Smith got straight up tackled on that scramble from Coan. Huge missed call.
Nah, this has nothing to do with Gene or the quality of the program.... it's a top 5-10 program with wrestlers winning multiple championships individually at their respective weight classes...you can't really "close the gap" on a dude who was probably literally the greatest wrestler to ever compete in the modern era.
Heh, as a part time Uber driver, I've had Mike Adams (dropped him off at J.B. Shugarts, LMAO) and Wyatt Davis just before the Wisconsin game. Both cool dudes.
Yep, and scenario 2 gives us #1 OSU vs. #4 LSU and #2/3 Georgia vs. #3/2 Clemson potentially as well... a one loss LSU is getting in over a CC with the resume factor against OU/Baylor or Utah.
Wow...this team has proven it can win big, it can win ugly, they'll exploit your weakness or challenge your strength...and they've truly got the chance to be special...folks this is it...we could be witnessing truly, the greatest team in college football history...but first... BEAT TTUN.
Listen, I loved our former quasi-disgraced coaches. We're upset, but look man... Woody, Tress, Urban...great, compassionate men, who took risks that put relationships and ego before "the rules" and good judgement.
Now I hate towing the line as much as anyone, but we all know Zach was a mediocre coach for the talent he was recruiting. Drake didn't have to stick it to Urban like that, but I think the media pressure dictated that he had to do more because of Strauss, Wrestling, etc.
But the numbers don't lie has far as all-time achievement for the university, and if we're being honest, looking at what we have right now with Ryan Day, and this team potentially being all-time great? He's got mostly young 40ish coaches who can take the reigns from two legends on defense and three legends on offense to siphon from as well... and while it's an unpopular opinion, it might not have been possible without that extra push from Drake...
And here you are typing it out twice... =/
See, I skipped past the links to the comments and wouldn't have even known this was included unless you quoted it.
Damn you Brutus. Damn you.
Winless TTUN doesn't have any juice though...I mean if it happens one season while Harbaugh is there and all the losses are heartbreakers up until we blow them out, then yea because their faithful will still have hope...the more hope they have, the more savory the win is...
He's got 13.5 sacks right now! No way he is held to 1.5 sacks in 3 whole games... and we gotta remember, Chase Young hasn't been playing deep into the second half either; imagine his 4 QTR sack numbers?!
Great post to calm the fire. I imagine if this was the beginning of the year, he may have just missed the opener and played in week 2 for secondary violations.Luckily this will only help build depth along the line against two lesser teams at most and still give Chase the chance to beat the single season sack record.
