Makes you wonder for sure. They discovered a disturbing "pattern".  Could that be that calls like this were placed frequently on recruiting trips?  That's a major speculative leap, but given the history and smoke surrounding this program for the last 4 years, would not surprise me.  A lot more to this story me thinks.  They would not fire him over one phone call.

I don't think this is photoshopped.  There's obviously just the right amount of water in a bottle (have 1 at my desk right now 1/3 full), where it kind of pops it right side up vertical.  Not minimizing what he's doing at all, it's kind of crazy, just trying to explain the "unnatural" movements of the bottle on a couple of them.  Try it yourself, you'll see.

Detroit realistically is a longshot to be a threat, but should the Indians win or sweep the series, it will be the final nail in the coffin for them.  They will sell off and be a non-factor the rest of the season.  However, let Detroit do the opposite and they may hang around a little longer and become a thorn in the Indians side.  They're probably selling either way though.

I didn't even know Tiger still actively played. Honestly.

Comment 07 Jun 2017

Interestingly, I have had my above mentioned 220 seats for 4 years now or something like that.  And so I get the renewal form as expected.  But last year, I added 2 more seats in 444 through regular ticketmaster.  And this year, I have 2 separate renewal links - 1 for the original 4 in 220, and 1 link for the new seats in 444.

A different thread, or maybe this one said that he just bought a new house.  A guy with his salary probably doesn't need to get the equity out of his current home to buy a new one.  So maybe that is why he is now selling a house.

Note: Have done 0 research on both the first tidbit and your claim.

Fine, should have worded it..."For those that are already bent out of shape on this"...

My apologies for not reading this thread over the weekend and posting a more timely comment.  I will do better next time.

Comment 06 Jun 2017

I agree totally on the win/win scenario.  I'm just saying that 200 level corner seats (220 in my case), are literally a dime a dozen, and there will be tons of them to rebuy on July 30 or whenever the public sale starts.  Ideally I'd like to get lower like your seats, or more towards the 10 yd line, but I think most of the owners of those tickets renew every year so they just aren't out there. That's why I wish they still had the upgrade option.

By not renewing my 220 row 8 seats, I think my worst case will be getting more 220 tickets probably row 3 or row 4 in July.  At least that's what kept coming up for me last year.

Before all those people get bent out of shape over this, the most important thing is he was asked by some twitter moron the question first.  Sure, he could have just ignored it, but he put 100k which in my very limited understanding of Twitter is an extremely high number, like the most retweets ever in history kind of number, no?   Then of course you have the "media" running with it like it was his original idea and a publicity stunt of sorts.

Comment 06 Jun 2017

Same here. Not renewing my 200 level seats in the corner. They were hard to sell this year to breakeven and there will be hundreds of equal or better during the actual sale at the end of July.  Granted I think you do save a little bit on fees by renewing.

Debating on renewing a pair in the 400 level low row on the 5 yd line.  Those are more in demand if it comes down to resell it seems.

Comment 05 Jun 2017

Hmm, the list of candidates seems either completely unrealistic or completely uninspiring.  Gene definitely has his work cut out for him.  I think it is going to be a Holtmann type guy, or someone even less of a household name than him.

And we know the cupboard is pretty bare with all the departures, so I wouldn't expect a whole lot this season, but who knows. I will try to remain optimistic.

On the flip side, USC has become quite an untrustworthy team the past 5 years or so.  Always lots of preseason hype, and then poof they're a tire fire for half the season before getting hot again late.  And it all starts over again the next season.

Comment 10 May 2017

Reverse the order and you are exactly right.  We do not have quality proven depth on the OL.  Losing ANY of them would be the biggest blow to the team. All other positions groups, there are either known commodities in a backup role, or battles where there is little difference between whoever gets the starting nod and who the backup is.

QB is indeed the can of worms, and while I don't say we'd be better off without JT like some do, I don't think there will be much drop off for the offense with Burrow/Haskins, and the potential for even greater things - a la Cardale in 2014.

Edit: Special mention to Weber at RB.  Everyone is hyped up on Dobbins rightfully, but just a true frosh and McCall is undersized for a full time role.  So Weber is pretty indispensable in his own right. 

Comment 09 May 2017

Exactly. Sure there will be some early signees with MAC schools that are "late bloomers" but you have that today anyways.  I would think most kids are pretty self aware, if not overconfident in some ways, that they can earn that higher major offer their senior year.  And they know worst case they can still sign with the mid or lower major school come December.  As with everything in life, their will be exceptions on both sides, but by and large this will not change that much from a "where the talent ends up" perspective.

Comment 09 May 2017

I agree with most of what you said but the train wreck scenario of a kid flunking out can happen at any time with the current system too. It is neither better nor worse in this situation.  It is the staff's job to identify whether a recruit has a potential grades issue and decide accordingly.  That has always been the case and always will be.  I think our staff does a pretty good job of this.

Comment 08 May 2017

Samuel busted a big run at some point, but yeah, epicly bad offensive performance against an up and down defense that ACC teams moved the ball on with relative ease at times.  But that's what happens when you decide from the opening snap you're not even going to try to do the one thing you're good at - run the ball.  

Comment 05 May 2017

This thread saddens me to realize I haven't been to Cedar Point in 15 years.  Now I'm just waiting for the 2 tikes to get big enough to ride most of the rides before going back.

Cables modems do offer DHCP, yes, but every cable company I have known only allows 1 Public IP to be assigned, therefore only 1 machine or router can be actually be used in that fashion.  Unless you pay for more. It may vary company, but think about it, public IP space is finite and a valuable resource for any ISP.  They can't just let anybody hook 4 or 10 devices up direct and eat their IP space.

Yep, at MAXIMUM he is a 4 year guy either way. But likely a 3 year.  There is no sense in redshirting, because believe it or not, a freshman (especially of his talent) getting small handfuls of real game reps in just mop up duty does help them improve and be better prepared for a starring role in year 2.
