I have a lot of faith in Mattison and to see the way he speaks of the defense...I'm stoked.
Bought matching #1 Justin Fields jerseys for the opener for me and my little dude. For 35 bucks I got the white XXL one and he got a M red one. Estimated shipping time was 7+ weeks and I got mine within 3 weeks. Couldn't be happier.
My connections went south with Luke Fickell. I have a friend whom was an All-American at Purdue and attends media day etc. so I probably have better connections in West Lafayette...
I know people disparage Ticketmaster (myself included), but I'm super paranoid after reading the story about last years Ohio State-UM game
“What we’ve seen recently is manipulation of print-at-home style tickets. So tickets that are printed in a PDF format, printed on a home computer, those are very easy to manipulate,” Scarborough said. “Fans that don’t have a trained eye can easily get duped.”
Ohio State athletics encountered approximately 300 invalid tickets to the big game, from tickets previously reported lost or stolen to outright counterfeits, Brett Scarbrough, associate athletic director for Ohio State’s ticket office, said.
Here is the "only" OSU-endorsed site to buy resale tickets. I'm avoiding StubHub.
You ain't lyin'. I stood next to his father and at 6'3 I had one of those rare moments where I felt short. REALLY short. Keep in mind Chase is 6'5 too....
Seeing how Clemson skated on all this recent controversy makes me angrier than someone that lost a rigged raffle...
Good grief! Look at that alumni list..
As much as I loved Urban, this was my biggest issue with the way he did things.
I get the feeling we'll see a good deal of him this year. Got high hopes for this kid!
Some pretty reasonable predictions. Only thing I see differently is Austin Mack. I'm predicting a huge year for him.
I like Coach O. In a way he reminds me of a more talented, smarter version of Brady Hoke.
*quickly scrolls the linked thread on Mike's hot-takes on the Clemson game*
*realizes I didn't comment*
Whew...but seriously, the guy caught every pass thrown to him in those spring games and probably a few that weren't.
I'll chime in as a parent of a 6th grader, as well as the head coach of his flag team every year.
From my years coaching here in Michigan, I can honestly say about 10% of the kids I coach and coach against, are ready for tackle ball and I have no problem giving an honest opinion to their parents on the topic. So many kids not keeping their head on a swivel on offense or defense and its scary.
Flag ball is great as it allows you to enjoy the game with all the camaraderie, speed and big plays of tackle ball with fewer chances at concussions (they do happen-I've seen it). If you can get into a league thats run well, I recommend it.
Whenever I hear Cardinal-Mooney the first thing that comes to mind is John Simon. I swear, for a minute there I thought he would win a Heisman (2010?)
Was the best man at my best friend's wedding and I didn't have a smartphone so no way to see the Indiana game where Zeke went nuts apparently, based off the texts I received from my wife whom I made set up scoring alerts and gamecast to her phone. I was getting updates all the way up to the speech.
Tim Spencer was running in a TD while I was born, during an Earl Bruce led team was upset by Minnesota. I wanted to get out and see if Art could bring us back...
Filed! Thats a C-Deck ticket to an OOC opponent, woot!
been in love with her for the better part of 25 years
I wonder how many times Antonio Brown was the redacted name...
All-time: Tim Tebow
Recent: Sam Ehlinger. I will go out of my way to watch Texas games just to see him play. Come to think of it, he reminds me a lot of Tebow...
1996 regular season MLB game, Seattle vs Cleveland at the Jake. Randy Johnson v. Charles Nagy. Was truly 2 of the best MLB teams ever assembled and it was a 13-9 (?) slugfest. A-Rod was a rookie and one of his HRs is still the longest HR I've ever seen in person-dude could rake.
I thought Riley was gone at the end of last season. Still think he's gone in the next 2 years. Selfish me wants Day around for awhile but I get worried about when Belichick retires....
I still think he rushed back from that injury too quickly.
Interesting....I never thought of it like that.
