Bid Daddy was a recruit everyone wanted. It was grades that downgraded him.
Chuck Jones; Gary Packnett and Paris Long were all supposed to be "the next big thing" but none of them made for a variety of reasons.
To this day there are those who say Chuck Jones was a can't miss All American but those were the 80s when there were academic casualties galore.
And then there were just plain overrated busts like Joe Pickens. Yes...I remember the Coop years. Just can't quite erase the pain despite nearly 20 years of bliss.
Did Buck68 use the word "experience"?
We had a legendary exchange back in the early days of the Ozone forum where he insisted "experience" meant nothing.
Thought it was a tip of the cap to the band Chicago.
The famous/infamous Nevadabuck is or was based in Las Vegas. I reside in Reno...thus...Northern Nevada Buck.
I was on the Rivals site for a decade but got tired of the snarky personalities (including the people who run that site) and decided that 11 Warriors is a better place to contribute and share.
Was one of the original O Zone members as well but got tired of the politics that were prevalent in the early 00s.
Was one of the original 12 who migrated to what was then known as Bucknuts around 2002...and participated in the ridiculously long Fred Davis threads.
Stuck around that site when it became Scout and started the not nearly long enough Trials and Tribulations of Jim Harbaugh threads. Too bad they have been lost in cyberspace.
Interestingly...on the scum site they have a long thread that goes back years they started to counter the Trials and Tribulations thread . Yes...I lurk there and was actually banned for making neutral posts where I wasn't kissing Sam Webb's ass.
I can't seem to be able to post a pic of Curly Howard but he and Stud are doppelgangers.
My wife and I have been together since Christmas 1981. We went on a date on Valentine's to see Ambrosia. Great show and a wonderful time.
It's like we're 18 and 20 again.
I finally got help this year.
After yo-yoing weight wise I got the surgery in
July and I'm down 135 pounds with another 100 to go.
Then...my breaking point was when I plateaued for a month in November/December and I threw my scale down twice trying to break it and the scale cut both my legs open.
That's fucked up. So...since I was already seeing a psychologist for the weight loss...I asked for more help to deal with anxiety ... frustration... anger and some depression.
The meds I'm on now for the first in my life... have made a huge difference. I now know what it's like not to be on edge.
I have a therapy session on Friday and a follow up with the nurse on Saturday. For me...at age 57...this feels almost life saving.
I voluntarily resigned from a six figure job in November because I was so miserable.
Now I'm happy...in a job I enjoy more and I'm getting the professional help I need...I just wished I had the courage to do this in my 20s...like you have.
My Best ...
Osu averages 4 to 5 transfers from March to July
Every year. Awarding a schollie to a well deserving
Walk on means NOTHING in regards to the Rutgers OL or another grad QB or anything else...other than...as always 4 to 5 of the present team members will be doing what's best for them.
A TE won't be on the team come August...you can count on a DB and two to three others. Hopefully not on the OL. (LOL)
There's one in every crowd. (Meant for 1966)
They should have hired me.
I've been Programming radio stations successfully since 1980. Applied to them and The Fan numerous times. They're not real smart at either one of those operations.
With a nod to the old Scout/Hineygate
Poster whenever there was good news during the Tressel era:
Even Steve Lorenz...one of their insiders admits it's a bad look for Harbaugh and Michigan because this has happened yet again.
Forum Post 04 Feb 2019
AIR SUPPLY...first two albums were as sweet as cotton candy...bitter saccharin after that.
It's Douglas...and it's the greatest name of all time!
Doug Buffone the Bears Defensive player had a great name. Douglas Fairbanks ... fantastic! Kirk Douglas...Spartacus!!! Doug Reno...Loverboy lead singer...er....wait...scratch that one. Doug Plank...named for the Bear 46 defense...right?
I'm sure there are more but I'm too lazy to search...probably because my first name is Douglas. :)
Part 10? Part 9 has over 300 comments.
Just want to be respondent 577... nothing to add. Carry on.
Two stories that just won't die:
1) Do you think Marcus Freeman is coming to OSU? Even though there hasn't been one single solitary bit of evidence that Freeman has ever been in consideration.
2) Is Brian Snead back on the team? Despite EVERY insider on every site saying SNEAD will never play another down at OSU...about 1000 times since mid October.
Pining for Snead is like wondering about Lou Williard or Sam Maldonado. And if you don't remember who those people are....neither do 99% of Buckeye Nation. They came...they went. End of Story. Good Luck to Mr. Snead and say hello to Mr. Berry, Westbrooks, and Riley.
Wanted Clemson to score at least one TD in the 4th quarter to make it 51 to 16.
Saban blames the players for the loss...like he always does. Even when sort of kind of taking the blame for the chit for brains fake FG call.
And by the way...how the hell does a NC program not have ONE guy who can kick a ball straight?
When I infamously posted the night before the Purdue game that there was no way Purdue (as was predicted by a writer at TOS) would score 49 points...I was smart enough to never return to that embarrassing thread again in hopes it would vaporize itself like the tapes in the Mission Impossible movies.
Did you miss Linebacker Coach AND Recruiting Coordinator? This is normal for most programs. And...it is a testament to Al's recruiting acumen.
Missing him already.
Hail to The Victor!
OSU is 11 and 2 at best...without the Victory lap at Happy Valley.
Favorite part of the resume is coaching Archie and Jughead at Riverdale High.
You don't need Mattison for insight into
Harbaugh's offense. Just flip on those NFL films from the 1960s. Plus...it's fun to see Deacon Jones and Merlin Olsen doing Hannible Lecter impersonations eating people alive.
