Right on tmac. Was just getting ready to enter the same comment about integrity being part of the award. Look at past winners, Berwanger, Kinnick, White, Archie - fellas you would like to see at your front door on prom night.
Like DJ wrote, Clemson and Okie are dominant at this point and will not be a pleasant match up for any tam. The loss to Iowa was a killer, but if the victories over PSU, ann arbor CC, and Wisconsin had been more like the butt kicking administered to little brother then maybe the satan worshippers would have seen it differently. After all, by their reasoning Wiscy should still be in the top tier with only one loss. Being left out will be a great incentive for the 2018 edition.
Amen. Not just a rah, rah site, but also asking the tough questions about coaching decisions, etc. First place I go each day. Excellent and most useful information, especially having lived in west _ichigan for 29 years. The entire staff, Ramzy, Dan, Drew, DJ, et al, should have their own blog, oh wait. I especially enjoy the articles at the end.
In my years on this earth I have found three groups that share an immediate bond - those with time in the Corps, former Coasties, and Buckeyes, born or adopted.
Something in the inner recesses is mumbling that emert was the president at IU, suspending Bob Knight for one of his transgessions. Emmerts predecessor at the ncaa I believe was myles brand, also formerly of IU and responsible for terming Knight.
Leave him off, don't disrupt the current chemistry. Plus he will probably get hurt again.
Hammy talked a bit last night about Kipnis in CF, mentioned more than once that had been his position at ASU, becoming an infielder later.
Personally, given his injury issues and the current make-up, I would shop Brantley for a young, speedy, outfielder.
tis a great day for baseball!
Fiancé GAVE away her student ticket ( I was attending CC) so we watched the game at Canfield Hall. Left during the 4th to walk over to The Shoe and meet her parents for dinner. Did not understand why her father looked so miffed as we approached, then found out. To make matters worse, probably 80% of the folks at the Red Roof were Okies.
Anything coming out of _ark _ays pie hole. And oh, by the way, the spot cost us the game.
Tito cannot get enough credit for keeping a steady ship in the face of all the injuries, including his time out of action. Normally in bed before the game ends, especially any that starts after 7:00 PM, but anticipating Hammy screaming "ballgame" one last time to close out the 2017 season, at the end of October.
Whenever i speak to a grad of that college I always super size.
Bernie basically told teams above the Browns in the supplemental ranking that he was only interested in one team. Glad he got a ring, even if it was with Dallas.
Anyone remember "Bernie, Bernie" sung to the tune of "Louie, Louie"?
Great book about the Raiders of the 70's, Badasses by Peter Richmond. Snake commented that they played for the name on the front, not the name on the back. Far cry from what the game has become.
Didja know? Nick Saban has been fired once in his coaching career, by Earl Bruce at TOSU.
I recall an interview with Schiann/Mrs, and it was mentioned that he was happiest as a co-ordinator. He has been a HC in college and pros; financial stability should not be an issue. I see him staying at TOSU.
Have lived in west _ichigan for thirty years. Born buckeye and lived in Cleveland 83-87, remember the drive and the fumble all too well. Disliked the cheapskate model and hate the ravens. Gave up on the NFL years ago, favorite football team is the Blues of Chelsea.
I have no doubt the allegations are false and Conley is innocent of the charges. That said, I am currently reading Badasses, a book about the Oakland Raiders of the 1970s and when talking to my son Tuesday night, with tongue in cheek, said maybe the Raiders would take a flyer on Conley.
I gave up on the NFL several years ago but do keep track of Ohio, players and natives, in the league. Naturally the browns can piss off, lightly I guess, with the Saints and now Raiders getting most of my interest.
Remarkable considering the closest thing Ohio has to professional football is in northern Kentucky.
Back when the IHL was akin to AAA, was attending a Friday night game in _uskegon, _I, formerly the Penguins top affiliate. With a couple minutes left in the first Duane Joyce was sent into the boards face first. Went to the locker room for the obligatory stitches and a shot. Played the remainder of the game. The team left afterwards for a flight to Phoenix and a Saturday night game. Joyce had oral surgery with, I believe three teeth being cut out along with more stitches. He caught an afternoon flight and played the Saturday night game.
Tis a man's game and not for the faint of heart.
If memory serves, Coach Hayes would arrive on Friday for a conference road game and have pre-arranged for the team to attend a lecture (usually history related) at the school about to get their backsides kicked.
Did not scan through all of the comments, but just noticed that the douchebag fan from Monday's SS made it to Breitbart.com.
When the season started my prediction was 9-3 (OK, WI, PSU) with a bowl victory. Last night, along with the upcoming week here in West xichigan, was and will be unpleasant. But everyone knew the O-line has struggled and the passing game has been a crapshoot. That cannot be fixed in three weeks. As good as Brooklyn is, he is not a workhorse and needs the playbook to be effective. Clemson has been consistent with their turnover issues something that can be overcome by good decisions and a stout defense. Plus they have a lot of playmakers with a decent offensive scheme. Hence I had a bad feeling about the game, but had no idea. Even with the butt kicking, a young team lost two games, to a potential national champion and the conference champion on the road. I was optimistic when the season started and was geared for a big run in 2017. All is not lost, 2017 is upon us. The sun is shining, even here in West xichigan. Remember, everyone hates Buckeye Nation, because they aren't.
I would say after the first of six PATs, no FG will be needed. Unfortunately UFM would be chewing on his backside for the remainder of the game. Buckeyes act like they have won before, and know the will win again.
Just win baby!
Just caught the Special Ones press chat. Said it was the best game for Man U this season.
