No one “jerked a knot” in his ass. Meyer called him an asshole. If your kid was acting like an asshole in a way that was directed at my kids, I’d be quick to point it out and hope you would do the same. Also, it’s extremely PC. 20 years ago this wouldn’t even be a discussion, otherwise Woody wouldn’t still be receiving praise around here after knocking a kid in the head. Agree to disagree to that point.
Thankfully, Urban doesn’t see eye to eye with this current cultural swing of the mouth monitoring, camera in your face so watch your tongue generation. I think it’s why he ultimately stepped down as head coach. That kid was an asshole and I applaud anyone at the leadership level for Ohio State not being afraid to say so. I’m just glad they didn’t give him a participation trophy when they got curb stomped.
The PC garbage gamut has gone too far. When you can’t call a college athlete an asshole for being an asshole because he’s a “kid” — things need to change. He would have had his helmet jerked around by his coach at the next practice in previous years for that behavior. Guaranteeing a win against your rival is disrespectful, so why not call it what it is? Sometimes it needs to be pointed out when young men are behaving like... well, assholes.
I agree things like this could cost him his job if they fall on the wrong ears, but I find that incredibly sad and disturbing. I’m sure he does as well.
I recommend Malcolm Jenkins highlights. That should do the trick.
Ok men, here’s how we draw it up:
The kid is going to pull the ball, Lucy style. Does he get up and run with it? No! He doesn’t. He zips to the end zone by splitting the defense with a vicious series of rolls and army crawls. What do you mean he’s down!? He was already down! No one cares!
I miss The Hive blood. Need unbreakable strength moving forward. Just keep nailing TSUN to avoid a hollow night. Float like a butterfly, sting like a hornet.
Here’s the problem: they’re viewing every Bama team as an unstoppable juggernaut every single year and ranking teams based on how they play against them. Fact is, these last few years Bama hasn’t been that great. Good football team, but that’s where it ends. They’re feeding on SEC scraps. It has been a top 10 Bama team vs an SEC that doesn’t have the horses, but the narrative will show otherwise. Big Ten has been the best conference top to bottom for the last few years.
When you lose a close one to Bama, you’re viewed as a top 5 team. I can almost guarantee that Saban is thankful not to have to face Urban and Ohio State and risk Meyer being viewed as the thorn in his side that won’t go away. He’s licking his chops thinking of his defense breaking Kyler while his offense has a monster day.
Tua was on the ground in pain about the same number of times Haskins was tossing TD passes. It’s been that way for most of the year, actually. I’m surprised his career isn’t completely over.
All I can think when I see him play is “they’re going to get this kid killed!” — which is ironic, because I remember thinking the same about Jalen.
“If he dies, he dies! Put the other one back in!” -Saban
Ruthless. Give Haskins the Heisman. He’s torched much better defenses than Kyler.
SEC/ESPN financial gains. Their narratives are to line their pockets.
Urban is an Ohio State legend. He already landed his dream job and brought a National Championship back to Columbus after smashing through Nick Saban and Alabama.
If the man leaves, tip your hats to one of the greatest.
Coach with the funnies today. Busted a gut more than once. Get ‘em!
Your brother’s name is Karen?
She. Sounds. Hideous.
For those of you thinking it’s alright to allow any disrespect from that team on our field, I doubt your bloodline and any Ohio ties.
This kid needs knocked out cold at midfield if he even thinks about pulling similar garbage here.
Know and respect your history. None of this started over a football game. It’s about our home, our families, and our men who were ready to go to war to send them packing. If this Floridian brat doesn’t know how deep it runs, plant him in the dirt.
Go back and watch the entire season if you need to. That defense was not making noise before the game against Wisconsin at the end of the year.
No one, and I mean NO ONE, was picking that team to win the NC at this point in 2014. In fact, they were picked against in something like 5 or 6 of their last games.
There was a big banner released after the NC game that speaks bluntly about being called lucky, undeserving, an “iffy at best” 4 spot, etc.
But please, let’s all keep pretending they were an unstoppable juggernaut that makes this year’s team look like pure trash.
Didn’t get gashed? MSU put up 600 yards of offense and Minnesota rushed for 200+.
Isn’t this the same team that Braylon Edwards was suspended indefinitely over for saying they’re trash, the coaches are trash, the whole program is a shitshow or something along those lines earlier this year?
Heard it all before. Bama and Clemson have both struggled against far worse competition than the Bucks have this year. Fact.
ACC and SEC are both soft as grapes this year, no matter what ESPN is trying to feed the masses. Big Ten is the toughest conference top to bottom and it isn’t close.
Here’s my top 5:
1) IT’S HATE WEEK
2) IT’S HATE WEEK!
3) F&$@ Xichigan!
4) GET OFF MY LAWN. BEAT BLUE.
5) WE DON’T GIVE A DAMN
It should have. Bama is weak, plays in a weak conference, and is boosted up by ESPN to make them and their SEC ownership money. SEC top to bottom is a dumpster fire... thus being knocked around by 4-5 FCS teams.
I can do this all day! Florida and UK are two of the worst teams in college football. UF hasn’t been relevant since Meyer left and UK being ranked #11 in the nation is the worst SEC/ESPN cash grab in history.
I understand your argument, but this is a horrible way to frame it. Bama being tied with The Citadel 10-10 at halftime is the equivalent of Ohio State losing to Purdue, Illinois, and Rutgers in the same season.
They are not a power 5 opponent and have no business being tied at half with the #1 team in the nation. I’d much rather lose to Purdue and win close games against Nebraska and Maryland than have the #1 team tied with The Citadel at halftime. Embarrassing and makes your spot look very questionable. Especially with LSU being exposed as a mediocre team at best.

Don’t @ me, bro!
Is that how the kids say it?
Look at this juggernaut, in a dogfight with Indiana with 4 minutes until the half. Missing the 2 point conversion gives them a dominate lead, 15-10.
Meh, we swarm Indy. It’ll still be an Ohio takeover if the Bucks make it, as always. Some of us lock down our tickets well before the season opens.
Username checks out.
Self-inflicted? Because the Bucks pinned them inside of their own 6 yard line 5 times? I think they’re lucky it only resulted in a safety and a touchdown. Again, could have been worse.
And if WRs catch a few balls here and there and the Bucks capitalize in enemy territory, the game is significantly more lopsided.
Half full, half empty. MSU could have been absolutely curbstomped if a few things clicked for the Ohio State offense.
