Always the transfer portal too... gotta believe they're monitoring it for any talented backs who aren't getting the playing they were expecting, or who are likely to be jumped by a 5* recruit come signing day. This transfer portal is absolutely fascinating!
Makes sense... NW season ticket holders can sell their OSU game tickets on the secondary market to OSU fans, and probably make back a good chunk of what they paid for the season tickets to begin with. Not sure that was NW's intention, but its probably whats going on here.
A very succint description of what I heard... he may be an SEC homer, but he sure as hellnwasnt afraid to mock the SEC fanbase. If you can't laugh at that.. you have larger issues. +1
I <3 your optimism.. he'll be NFL eligible after next season... at this rate.. he is GONE.. and good for him! Lets enjoy the ride.
I've never watched Finebaum's show... but decided to put it on yesterday more or less for some background noise while I responded to emails. I thought he was pretty entertaining, often clearly mocking his "GOOO SEC PAUULLL" callers while they were still on the phone. I don't think I'm going to make a habit of it by any means... but I was entertained.
His are the only posts I consistently read and wonder, am I the crazy one, or is he? He’s the MC Escher of blog posts.
Glad he’s alive and well!
No argument from me there.. but OSU has dispatched their opposition fairly confidently so far.. can’t ask much more than that.
We're at a strange pount in the B1G season... we all THINK we know who's pretty good (Wisky, PSU) and who's pretty bad (UM).. but we still need some verification on the scoreboard. Next couple of weeks are going to shine some light (hopefully)!
Justin Fields: "I'm all good Coach, let Chug or Hoak start this game".
How about give the QB forward progress to wherever a defender was able to get two hands on him? Like.. you know... two hand tap?? Kinda surprised the league hasn't floated that idea yet.
Hard to see this as anything but a very “Man Up” decision... you think leaving everyone and everything he’s known for the last 8 years is easy for him? He probably realized he has hit his ceiling training with the OSU folks... and that may indeed have held him back the last couple years. If he wants to be the best ever.. he needs a change of scenery.. plain and simple. Fighters do this all the time, it’s how they learn how to defend new attacks, learn what offense will work in particular situations, etc. It’s how he’ll get better. None of those guys you mentioned is in the conversation for “best ever”... I’m sure he’s doing what he thinks will make him the best ever. Let’s support him, eh?
A little bit of insider knowledge (wink wink). When Henry McKenna 10 yr BiB won best whiskey in the world, HH re-evaluated their product offering. They're discontinuing a bunch of labels... with the intent to bring them back in the near future at a more premium price point. I've been told Beam is doing the same. They're seeing the surge on anything Buffalo Trace, so yeah... sucks for us who enjoy good bourbon at a reasonable price.
Certainly not advocating for QB runs... just.. throw it! Whether play action, 5 wide, etc. MSU knew we were going to run it every play. That’s “turtling” in my book.
Agreed... Day played nice.. he quite obviously took his foot off the gas. I hate that... the players and the fans both know, and it screws with intensity and how they play.
Agreed, a solid “W”. If I have one gripe, Ryan Day seemed to channel his inner Tressel and turtle the offense a bit too early... I wish we would have kept the playbook open a bit longer. Run, run, run... woof.
Keep scoring Mr. Day, and give Fields the reps he needs.
Lets be honest here.. losing to UM late in the year would knock us out of 99% of CFP... unless UM is a top 5 team team and they narrowly win.
With that said... you'd turn down a Natty for that??!?!?
Buckeye Nation is a blessing and a curse all that the same time. For every X number of fans, there is a certain percentage of Y idiots. The larger X is, so goes the Y. There is a reason we have bad rap amongst the college football fanbase as a whole, chiefly we have alot of idiots. Lets call it what it is.
I'm with you... in the CFP era, thats all that really matters. In this hypothetical scenario, I'd happily take my lumps from UM fans for two months because, after we win another Natty, the schadenfreude for the next year would be priceless.
Initially downvoted, but decided to upvote in good faith. But that reads like 11W is your little fiefdom.. conversation and opinions shouldn't be censored because of personal opinions. Very disappointed in you, and 11W for allowing it. Good on you for owning up to it... but its shit like this that has me not renewing my 12W membership. Just seems petty.
And to your point... there will ALWAYS be discord.. people are different. See: America.
Perhaps 11W can implement a change that allows Mods to shut down a thread, but with justification and content saved? I'm not opposed to moderators or their role, but making a fairly popular thread and all of it's comments just disappear.. well that just seems kinda Orwellian. Just my .02 cents.
Sooo.. theres no 1984 going on here?
Well played sir... +1 for you.
And for those below, I literally had no idea threads ever "got erased". I undersrand closing them, but had no idea erasing them was "a thing". Save your preachiness for church my man.
Ohh.. ok. I thought it was a hell of a post, much better than most (especially this one). It had a lot of good commentary from both sides... shame it has to disappear based on some ninny DV'ing people. Thanks for the clarification.
Mods please close my poor thread.
You're kidding yourself if you think that a program's sustained success doesn't way heavily into a recruit's decision. While we have no LEGITMATE verifiable evidence of bagmen, I fail to see how legetimizing them solves anything. Sure, the current NCAA model of amatuerism is pretty laughable... is this the best way to open the floodgates? And really.. this is opening Pandora's Box.. there is no going back, whether it works or not.
Just my thoughts..
