Oh my gosh I just realized there are 11 more episodes of My Favorite Things. This is going to get me through home isolation!
The fourth grade writing teacher in me cheers when a Ramzy Nasrallah article comes out! These days I've just resigned to suffering through the appalling writing online, so what a joy to ride your smooth words like a wave. You have SUCH whimsy and flow, Ramzy! What a distinctive voice, and I feel like you're talking right to me. Thank you for your gift!
LOL You did fix it for me. I do so love a minimalist writing style, though. Why use 10 syllables when 1 syllable perfectly expresses my thought? But absolutely, Ramzy's writing is excellent and singularly outstanding!!!!
I am appalled at most of the sports writing I see these days, but I'm so used to it I've just accepted it as part of life. I forgive the typos, misspellings, and wrong verbs. I give up trying to decipher word salad sentences after a few times and move on. When I come across good writing it's such a wonderful shock. Your writing is like an oasis in the desert.
Please help me! Explain the meaning of the poster for me. Thank you!
Thank you so much for these photos. I want to see what these guys LOOK like without their helmet! Thanks for letting me get to know their faces, too.
I agree with you. One of my nagging concerns is that Ryan Day would not name him starting quarterback. My concern is that he was not performing to the level he should be. I'm excited for him to show us what he has!
Urban Meyer could always call TTUN "The Wolverines"
I've been wondering for a couple of years if the drop in performance on our defense side was because of the loss of Kerry Coombs. I'm so glad to see it bouncing back, though.
Good job! How did you know this blowout was going to happen? Just a hunch?
There's just something about watching Parris Campbell streaking down the sideline like lightning that gives me a charge.
Thank you! I'm in disbelief that there are people down in Baton Rouge criticizing Joe Burrow for not being flashy enough! What will satisfy them?
TMac - Could you please explain something for me? Did Terry Mclaurin purposely push the Penn State player into the other two Penn State players? Or did he just push the first player until he lost his balance and fell down and the other two falling was a happy accident? Thanks!
This shining example of the brotherhood of Zone 6 just takes my breath away. I hear so much about sacrifice and selfless playing, but I admit I don't really appreciate until I see how electric it is. You are so right.
I'm embarrassed to say this, but I've watched Benjimin Victor's big play about 25 times.
To David Wertheim: I love the clever way you structured this story around the win probability. I often look at these win probability charts from ESPN and love to see how the drama of the game unfolds next to graph. I'm really appreciative of the creativity and whimsy of the eleven warriors writers. You bring enjoyment to the football experience!
Bosa has an elite level of fitness and takes care of his body and nutrition. This will aid healing.
I'm surprised that more people have not noticed the fatigue factor you have mentioned. TCU looked absolutely gassed in the fourth quarter! When TCU started playing like gangbusters in the first quarter I thought, "What are they doing????" I had the exact thought you did. Wait until the fourth quarter.
This is the first mention I've heard of TCU playing with their hair on fire the first quarter. Within the first couple of minutes my thought was it would be impossible for TCU to maintain this frenzied level and we would win the game. I'm rarely that confident about a game outcome, but I felt it in the first couple of minutes and never doubted TCU would be too fatigued to overcome us. What is surprising to me is that TCU looks like it could beat OU!
David Regimbal - I appreciate your good writing. I love the literary device of flashback to tell a present-day story. Some of my favorite sports stories are told this way.
You read my mind. Matthew Mcconaughey shot was hilarious and fit with the video perfectly!!!
I agree. Another way they will play this is a statement that OSU has zero tolerance for domestic violence or sexual assault of any kind. Even if Urban Meyer is 100% reinstated with no suspension, OSU will make it clear in some way where they stand. Anything else would not be a good look. It may include donations to a women's shelter or something of that nature. Also something to the effect of "we believe accusers" - that even if Courtney lied, drank too much, or was unstable, she could very well have still been abused. I'm NOT agreeing or disagreeing with all that I've just stated, just this is what I think the university will do to cover themselves. Otherwise it would be a bad look. It's okay if you want to downvote my comment.
And they don't want a similar incident like that at Maryland practice in June.
Another flaming liberal here who doesn't think Meyer should be fired.
Thank you so much again. I'm with the other commenter; I've been on the same wavelength as you since the beginning. I'm a huge Buckeye fan and follow it maniacally, but it's hard to see so much smoke and not think there's fire. I really just want the truth. And yes, I want a coach that wins! So I guess it's hard for people to see these two things as not mutually exclusive.
