OSU baseball has been historically worse than other college teams in Ohio most years. Heck, even Ohio Dominican had a better baseball team when I played back in the mid to late 80's. Bob Todd had some good years when he replaced Dick Finn, but just never seems to be able to sustain any consistency of being a top conference contender. No excuses based on resources.
Every team has back-ups, but doesn't diminish that player's competitive spirit. Just like every job, there is only one CEO, so the rest of the employees are essentially back-ups that play a role and still compete with others to be the best at what they do.
This is like telling a pitcher he's throwing a no-hitter. Now Wisconsin and the Buckeyes are going to lose. Thanks dude! /s
Is the team really that adverse to the color "Blue"?
Thank you for the recommendations. Always up to try different craft brews and sounds like just what I'll need after hiking.
Thank you for that tip. We are staying at NYNY, so this is very helpful. I'll be sure to send you 15% of my savings. Don't expect it to be Mike Trout money. :)
Thanks for all of the local advice! We are going to spend a couple of days exploring/hiking in Zion National Park & Valley of Fire for sure. Any other recommendations in the area? My boys didn't think Hoover Dam sounded too exciting, they enjoy hiking and rock climbing and the Grand Canyon is a little too far of a drive for the limited time we will be there.
We are using Vegas as our base because of the price. Cheaper flights and hotels, but are actually going to spend quite a bit of time out hiking at Zion National Park, Valley of Fire, Red Rock and some other sites. However, I'm sure the trip will probably entice them to go back when they are older for the full Vegas experience.
Thanks to everyone who took time to comment. It’s my boys (twins) senior year, so last Spring Break together since they will be attending different colleges and I want to make sure they have a great experience.
We need better bag men for the basketball team.
The late surge may have saved them a spot, but Rhode Island's win more than likely knocked them out.
I think this loss knocks the Buckeyes out and headed to the NIT. they needed to either win or show the committee they could put up a tough fight against a quality opponent.
I'm not watching professional sports for the moral code, so I have no problem with this as a Browns fan. Are you not entertained?
I lived in Suwanee, GA for 8 years, and made many visits to Athens and UGA. Their campus scene is definitely one of the best I have seen. Have to go to The Varsity when I get back and order a chili dog and a frosted orange.
Is anyone that surprised? I'm sure Clemson is not the only program that is finding ways to get an edge and then having training staff mask it. Been going on since the 80's.
Maybe he meant "A Meyer" was going to get tattooed that night if they won... looking at you Shelley. :)
He looks like he is out of shape and lost some quickness with his post moves that he showed earlier in the year. He looks like he could use some additional conditioning since he hasn't been playing as many minutes due to foul trouble and needs to get back on a nutrition plan.
I cringe every time CJ has the ball late in a game just waiting for him to turn it over. Was hoping Washington would get more his minutes.
I hope you were just being sarcastic since he can't put his name in the transfer portal when he hasn't even signed a letter of intent to any school yet.
As one of my coaches once told an umpire, "Good umpiring goes unnoticed, but you might as well have your dick hanging out." This was a summer collegiate league with minor league umpires and the umpire got so frustrated, he punched our coach and then ran to the parking lot and sped off.
I played in the league with these guys. It's a joke how some guys have gotten a free pass like Mike Piazza, who I know absolutely was a steroid user, and then other guys get vilified. I was with the Dodgers when Piazza was having guys do the drug tests for him. We were told when the drug test was going to happen and given our own cup, but no one ever monitored who actually provided the sample. Bonds, especially deserves to be in. He was an absolute stud when he wasn't juicing when he was with the Pirates. Only reason some guys started using is because others were and it was hurting their contract negotiations when not producing at the same level. It was an era when guys felt they needed to juice just to keep up, and baseball executives turned a blind eye since it helped bring fans back to the game after the strike.
He better hope that the next two recruiting classes can get this turned around. I'm sure he'll get a pass for this year, but not by year 4.
Vegas odds are definitely in favor of him coaching again within two years. It stinks that things got totally blown out of proportion by the media and OSU bowed to the social pressure to take action. That is definitely the main reason Urban is not coaching the Buckeyes. I believe he has an ailment, but seems real convenient as the excuse for him to step away. History does repeat itself.
I’m not saying Holtmann isn’t a very good coach. Just the opposite. He was able to get last years team to overachieve and this year it looked like that would continue. The problem is the competition has caught up to him and just don’t have the talent to be a contender in the conference this year.
Riley doesn’t want him. He made it public he wasn’t taking any transfer QBs this year. He has confidence in his incoming freshman.
