Booker to DE is intriguing. Obviously he'd have to learn a new position, but I wonder if he sees himself as a better NFL prospect as an edge rusher?
Totally fair point about not ruling out Burrow. He was amazingly tough about his hand injury last year, and that goes a long way. With that said, I think dual systems are often the worse of both worlds. Martell coming in for Haskins would be more like a "wildcat" but with a legit throwing threat.
Great point. I think they'll both see the field, but it would be pretty surprising to see either start.
This is a hot take. I like it. The conventional wisdom is definitely that Haskins is a "pure passer," Martell is a "scrambler," and Burrow is pretty good at both. It's hard to know how Martell's arm stacks up at the college level, but maybe you're on to something...
It's sort of a blessing and a curse that OSU has three returning starters + two super high potential guys all at guard. With that said, we've seen that the tackle vs guard vs center distinctions can be pretty fluid. If the guiding principle is to get the most talented player on the field, there is a real logic to trying Davis out at center. It would be hard to imagine either Bowen or Jordan not playing. I guess Myer (or Davis) could potentially give Knox a run for his money.
Cuba was a Spanish colony prior to the Spanish-American War. Teddy Roosevelt, who had never previously been a solider, quit his job as Assistant Secretary of the Navy to form the Rough Riders. Think about how crazy that is. Castro overthrew the pro-US Batista government in 1958. Castro actually visited the US after he took over and met with Nixon, who was the VP at the time. Things went downhill between the US and Cuba with the Cuban Missile Crisis. Relations remained not-great until arguably the present, but Obama lifted some sanctions and made it ok to visit.
It's not really an occupation per se, but I really want to know what it's like to be Kerry Coombs. (I'll miss him next fall)
There are no benchwarmers, only more starters!
I guess these days you're either doing '90s retro style or google glass
Depends what you mean by "still"
Wright-Patt for sure. Imagine how weird it would be if the military just came out and said, "yea... all the weirdo conspiracy theorists were on to us. we've got alien at the exact place you thought we'd have them." Even if they're there now, they'd move em to wright-patt for the press conference haha
Sorry for the confusion... I did not serve in the peace corp or the military. I helped out at a school in Columbus this fall, and I'm waiting to hear about a full-time teaching placement for next year.
Appreciate it, KBonay!
I'd love to visit India. Seems like one of the more unique places
David Foster Wallace is tough to get through, but I think students would love how he saw / predicted the weirdness of the moment / society we're living in.
I want to do something that pushes me and makes me grow. Military service, teaching, peace corp, etc. give 23 year olds a ton of real, meaningful responsibility. I know I've been really lucky in a lot of ways. This feels like the right thing to do.
Apparently he's making an NFL comeback
I'd have everyone read a little Hemingway because I think it would make students better writers. He's the classic for clear, concise writing. He's a reference point for me when I'm feeling confused about my writing voice.
Depending on the kickoff time, I'm wakin up and taking a long hard look at myself in the mirror and asking if I'm ready for what the day holds. Possibly hitting the gym to both blow off the nervous energy and get into the appropriate testosterone idiot state of mind. Compulsively checking 11W every 42 seconds. Possibly sending some texts to trusted fellow fans. Never sending trash-talks texts for fear of evil karma. Watching every high-quality hype video from the Urban Meyer era.
Jack Daniels > Jim Harbaugh
