With Wisky's dominance of the B1G West, looks like we could be seeing quite a bit of Mr. Mertz over the next 4-5 years. If he is everything they are saying he is, he'll be a great addition to a team that always has a very good rushing attack and always seems to get a lot out of the players they recruit. Don't sleep on the Badgers!
Congrats to FC Cincy for getting a MLS franchise! It’s crazy to think that 2 years ago when the thought of a MLS team in Cincy was first floated around, FC Cincy was just getting started. What they’ve accomplished in 24 months is truly impressive.
Sadly, this is probably the end of the road for the Crew. It hurts to say that, but the writing’s on the wall. It’s definitely going to be a sad day when this season ends, but I’ll be able to take away some fond memories of driving down I-71 from Cleveland to watch the Crew. Hell I remember that first season at the ‘Shoe with Bo O in goal!
MLS has an uphill battle. It’ll probably (in our lifetime at least) be league #5 on the list of American sports, but I really do hope it continues to get better and grows in popularity. While the talent in MLS isn’t great, it’s grown a lot from where the league started at back in the 90’s. I just hope crooked Don Garber and assholes like Precourt don’t ruin things.
I wonder if Cleveland would ever be considered for a franchise? It would renew an Ohio rivalry and also provides an opportunity for a geographical rivalry with Chicago, Toronto and to an extent Philly. I remember hearing Detroit wanted a team and has Danny Gilbert and the Pissed-Ons owner to head that team. Who knows, maybe one day.
how did they come up with a figure of $120? seems line an odd amount to bet.
Saw Tyquan Lewis out once and i am still convinced to this day that he can rip trees out of the ground with his bare hands. Dude's arms are massive.
Thank you very much for that info!
Thank you for the info!
I've been wondering about the grad transfer process. So with Mr Burrow, once he transfers to the school of his choice, does he actually have to take any classes? I'm sure if he wants his masters or a 2nd degree he can do that on his own, but i was curious of there was a certain requirement to take at least some classes despite already graduating.
Man, i haven't heard the name James Brooks in a long time. Living in Cleveland, we only saw the Bengal games when they were playing the Browns or if the times were different, but he was always such a beast in those games. I still remember seeing a play versus New England (not sure if it was regular season or playoffs) where he carried 2-3 guys into the end zone. Hard to believe he is probably in his mid 50's by now.
I don't see how Neb would pass on Joe. To me this is a perfect fit for both sides. Joe gets his starting spot for 2 years and martinez gets to learn under a pretty darn good QB. After that i'd say Wyoming, BC or OU would be the next logical choices.
Maybe if he goes to LSU, he can give us some pointers on the Bama defense when we see them in the playoffs next year.
Either way, i wish Joe nothing but the best and look forward to following his career wherever it takes him. this is going to be a big loss.
East 4th is a really fun area after the game. Quite a few bars packed into that area. as mentioned earlier, Greenhouse is nice but can get pricey. Traffic is usually a mess too once the game lets out, so it's a great spot to grab a few beers instead of sitting there. You have the Casino right there too. We have a wedding somewhere down there saturday night, so i plan on getting a bit tipsy and venturing over to E4th. Hopefully the weather is nice and the Cavs bring home a W.
I'm honestly OK with whoever the Browns take. This year we have Tyrod and Stanton as QB1 and QB2, so whoever we draft probably won;t play until December when we are in a meaningless game at the end of the season. So whichever QB that is will have all of camp, preseason and then at least 12-13 weeks of regular season to learn the playbook, see how incredibly different NFL is to college and grow as a person. All of these QB's have an upside and none of them are a sure thing. If that QB ends up being Mayfield and that';s who Dorsey and the team wants, then i am all for it.
On a side note, I bet you if Mayfield was 2-3 inches taller, he'd be considered the best QB in the group.
when i first saw that pic i thought the recruit was giving coach the bunny ears.
Damn. Well i hope some of his former teammates and maybe his former position coach at least reach out to the young man to make sure he is OK. In this day and age you don't want to ignore this and assume it's nothing. As much as we all dislike TTUN, you don't want to see something like this turn into a life or death situation for anyone.
I'll definitely tune in to a few UCLA games just to see how this one goes. Wouldn't mind watching him beat USC! h
Seems like an odd choice to go with Chip Kelly and that offense, although Chip may have changed things a bit and will rely on short passing routes in lieu of the QB taking off and running.
Judging solely off of both Saturday games, i think this will be a lot closer than most think. Yes, Michigan's path to the championship game was easier than expected, but they still had to get there. They do have a very good defense overall and they are very good at contesting 3 pointers. They definitely cannot go through the same 4-5 minute spells where they really struggle to score like they did saturday, but i think their defense and Wagner can keep it close. If he gets into foul trouble, then they might be in big trouble.
'Nova played out of their minds saturday. i can't imagine they'll hit as many 3's as they did versus Kansas, so that alone might keep Michigan in it. If they shoot like they did Saturday, this game could be over by halftime, which is good for me because i have to be up at 5:00 AM Tuesday so i need to hit the hay a little early this evening. Overall i think 'Nova is just too good and will win, but it should be a nail biter.
I think Carr would definitely benefit from another year at PSU, but you can't blame the young man for leaving for the shiny lights of the NBA. He absolutely killed us this year and this might be a case of him striking while the iron is hot. he should at least declare and go through the process without hiring an agent.
Not a bad mock. I do;t see Baker going in round 1, but if he does that would be awesome. I really like this mock because it leaves some very good options at the top of round 2 for the Browns. Billy Price would be solid, but there are a few DT's. OT's and DB's that could fall the Browns. Not to mention someone may offer a good trade for the 1st pick of round 2 if they want Mason Rudolph.
Normally i'd say the Seahawks over the Jets in a second, but that NFC West is no joke when it comes to solid DB's. While Russell is better than anyone the Jets will roll out, TP is going to have to earn those catches against some solid defenses. Baldwin will probably see more of Peterson, Sherman, and the LA Rams guys, but still tough sledding for TP.
Doug Martin to the Raiders. Jordy Nelson could be there soon as well Per Ian Rapaport
That's a bummer. I have family in WI, so GB was always a team i watched when they were on tv. it feels like Jordy has been there for about 15 years now, but he'll definitely be missed. I'm sure GB will take a WR somewhere around rounds 4-5 and they'll end up being a good one in that offense
Do you think Jordy can come back on a lower salary? it will definitely be odd seeing him on another team
So far i love what the Browns have done. after the last few years i'll be happy with 6-10 as long as we are competitive and aren't getting blown out. if they can draft well and develop these young guys, next year's free agent market could be where we make some really big moves.
my work blocks Youtube and i don't have FB anymore, so i can;t wait to watch this based off of the comments here. Thank you in advance Nils!
As a lifelong Browns fan/heavy drinker, normally i hate the fact that they trade down. This year, i think there's enough depth at QB and RB that we can trade down and accumulate some more 2nd round picks to strengthen the roster. In my opinion the Browns want Josh Allen over the other guys. My thinking is that Tyrod is the starter for this year and next and then Josh Allen starts his 3rd year. If Allen is their guy, you dont need to take him at 1 or 4, he'll be there from 10-15 so there is an option to trade down a bit.
1. if the Jets dont get Cousins, trade #1 so they can take Darnold/Rosen and we get #5 and then a 2nd rounder.
4. Barkley. I think it goes QB/Chubb/QB and then the Browns pick.
33. Sam Hubbard. he probably doesn;t fall passed NE, but you never know!
35. Best OT on the board
37 from the Jets: Billy Price. I think his combine injury might cause him to slide a bit. Since that probably doesnt happen, my other choice would be the best CB on the board.
Cory Coleman could still be a deep threat too. I think he could really do well as a 2nd or 3rd option. Heck i think we still have Sammie Coates too? That WR position is getting better, now just need a decent QB. At this point i'd be surprised if we didnt sign McCarron.
