Thanks Spooner for all that you do! Lets get to 100!!
First, I absolutely hate the fact that people refer to kids or people who are immature and make bad choices as a "cancer"(personal reasons), due to information that they read or heard from other sources. But for the sake of the post I will refer to Evans issues as many other posters have to this point. Second, the last time I checked, his "cancer" is treatable. Coaches have made great strides in getting to know their players on a personal level and developing life-long relationships that go beyond the football field. Third, other players can't catch his "cancer", it is not a virus, but they can be influenced by it, if weak leadership exists, and that is not the case at the Woody. You can treat and beat his type of "cancer" by surrounding the kid with right people and by having the right treatment plan. Leaving Texas is probably going to be the best form of treatment for this kid, by getting him away from the negative influencers in his life. And remember, when it comes right down to it, he is still a kid who has a lot of growing left to do. In the end, if you can't treat his "cancer", then you cut it out and move forward. And while I believe the risk is minimal for OSU, the reward could be life changing not only for OSU, but more importantly for Zach Evans.
Was literally getting ready to post a similar comment.
This from Austin Ward over at LR concerning Wade’s decision to return...
it will be fascinating to see how that all plays out — especially if former position coach Kerry Coombs accepts the offer to return to the program and work with Wade again as expected.
I am honored to say that I got too see JK do his thing for the last 3 years and a few times live. He will be one of my favorite Buckeyes of all time. I wanted him to stay and break Archie’s record, but go make that money JK. Good luck!!
Currently sitting in section 433 at the Fiesta Bowl and I would safely say it is 75% Buckeye fans!!
Myself, my wife, and another couple will be leaving Enon, OH on the 26th to drive to the Fiesta Bowl to watch the Buckeyes win, then we’re going to the Rose Bowl.
Andre is a Senior, so he’s gone. Can’t imagine any of the Freshman are 1 and done at this point. Someone could always transfer out as well. Just speculating, but with Aherns minutes way down, he could be a possibility or maybe Jallow. I’m not sure where he fits with this team upon his return. Of course this is all pure speculation on my part.
I just ran the wall in my classroom on the way to my truck, to start Christmas break! Thank Coach Coombs for the motivation!
DBU for a reason.
I should have worded that question better. What happened with the younger Wray, in regards to his Buckeye recruitment? I thought he was a lock for this class, with his brother on board.
And only 6 of those guys actually made it into the class. Some of those names never had a shot and I'm okay with that. Refresh my memory, what happened with the younger Wray?
The Shaw kid is one I'm curious about. He was a 3 star Safety from MD, that I believe Grinch really wanted. So, it'll be interesting following his development this off-season.
I believe that Day and Company have a plan B for CP and CM, probably some recruits completely off the radar. They knew there would be some fall out from the Hafley departure and planned accordingly. Just from what I've been reading, to me, it sounds like CP was waffling on his commitment before Hafley left. Obviously the negative recruiting from other schools doesn't help either But no matter happens from here on out with those two guys, I believe in Coach Day and trust the process. We will be fine.
Maybe use the sarcasm font next time to clear up any misconceptions. PS: I gave you UV to negate the DV's your currently experiencing
It’s 1869 miles to the Fiesta Bowl, we’ve got a week till we leave, half of my students are done with their exams, it’s national signing day, and we’re going to win the National Championship. Hit it.
With the Titans losing today they are on the outside looking in for a playoff spot. This could help with the pursuit of Kerry Coombs. But whoever the next DB coach is, can he please stay for more than a year. I can’t go through this year after year.
I watched the BIG Show last night after the OSU women upset #2 Louisville and Robert Smith really pissed me off. All he did was trash the our secondary. His take on "The Game", was that the only reason we looked good in the 2nd half was because of the drops by the TTUN WR's. He made some really of the wall comments about not being able to cover elite WR's and stated that Quintez Cephus may be the best WR in the BIG and that we will struggle to cover him on Saturday night. I was just blown away by his pure lack of knowledge of the current OSU secondary.
RUN THE DAMN BALL MORE PLEASE!!!
I was in C deck and it was loud up there. Got into a few heated discussions about calls with the PSU idiots sitting up there as well. Had to listen to the “We are...” chant on numerous occasions, until one Buckeye fan yelled “child molesters” and that pretty much shut it down. But yes it was loud today.
I’m at the game right now and there are more PSU fans in the stands then I have ever seen before. Disappointed.
