That’s what has always really pissed me off about the Zach Smith fiasco. Urban deserved a lot of criticism post Florida. But he had done things differently at Ohio State and had very few off the field incidents involving his players. Hell, Stewart Mandel of all people actually commented on that last May when someone took a shot at Urban. And of course all of that goodwill built up after the last six years was destroyed and it become ‘more trouble with an Urban Meyer program’

Urban deserved to leave with recognition for establishing an excellent culture at Ohio State. His blind spot for Earle prevented that.

Yes, I’ve had those and they are similar. These steaks are much thinner though.

I’m a big fan of all of the different styles, too. There are also micro regions within the broader regions.

I had a really interesting one the other day in Tompkinsville, KY. It’s a little town ten miles off the Tennessee border near Dale Hollow Lake. The style is called Monroe County BBQ and is only common in a 30-40 mile radius of Tompkinsville. They cut shoulders very thin into steaks and dip them in an awesome  thin, vinegary, peppery sauce made with lard. I l went to one of the oldest places, R & S, and I liked the sauce so much I asked to take some home. Apparently that’s a pretty common request. The owner gave me a quart for the huge sum of $4 !. The shoulder steaks ( they just call it shoulder) were very thin, maybe a 1/4 inch. I did like every one else around me and just used my hands and ate around the little bone. I had three steaks  with no sides or bread and could easily have had three more 

I have the sauce in my refrigerator and I’m gonna try and recreate it. I think it would be great to mop on chicken while smoking and also would be great on pulled pork.

I’m not big on redshirting skill players unless forced to by injury. How many great ones stay five years ? And if they’re not great, you’re recruiting over them anyway.

I’ll never understand wanting six. It’s already so subjective and I’d never want to make it even more subjective by giving byes based on opinions. 

Comment 10 May 2019

They gave up 41. Don’t be fooled into thinking they were ‘stout’, Florida owned us all night long. Had Urban grown up in Texas it may have been 63-14. Semi mercy killing.

Comment 10 May 2019

It’s not relevant to compare WR vs WR, QB vs QB, etc,

The matchup that mattered most was that we had very slow OL that couldn’t handle their fast DL. It was embarrassing. 

Comment 05 Mar 2019

I’m on Florida’s side on this one. They already do a home and home with Florida State out of conference. They offered UCF a three year series with two games in Gainesville and one in Orlando. That’s a deal UCF should have taken.

Comment 21 Feb 2019

Considering everything that when on with Ohio State from late July 2018 to December when Urban announced his retirement, the 2019 class was a rousing success. Day is off to a good start with 2020, and despite a couple of decommits I’m guessing he’ll finish pretty well. This one seemed very much expected.

Comment 07 Feb 2019

I don’t think it will be significant. Certainly not enough to pay a coach a couple million. 

Comment 06 Feb 2019

I don’t see where the couple million bucks will come from. This league will have no significant TV revenue.
