I'll take my chances with Wilson and Day.
Did you just go third person nickname, on a username that amounts to a chosen nickname? That's some Inception level shit dude.
You may be against it, but in the marketing world where brand recognition is a direct link to more money people love it. The Jumpman logo isn't a basketball player in that world its a representation of an elite brand of athletic apparel. Fans love it, players love it, recruits love it. Anyone and everyone can have the Nike logo on their jerseys, a chosen few get the Jumpman. So it goes far beyond a miniature basketball player.
Michigan got the brand because of Charles Woodson not Jeter. North Carolina didn't get the branding first because the potential and upside for Michigan as football power far outweighs North Carolina.
This whole branding isn't about a miniature basketball player or a rival. Its about marketing and money, both of which can be found with Jordan brand fans and Michigan fans.
I'm a fan of JT, I'll cheer for the guy. I don't think he's the best QB in the room any longer. I think he's the best leader with the most experience.
That IS the Jordan Brand logo, you see it on every sport for every player the brand sponsors. Its one of the most recognizable logos in the sports world and carries a certain level of weight with it. The only reason Ohio State fans have a real problem with it, is because its Michigan, not because its a basketball player on a football jersey. When in reality its not, its a brand logo, that has moved far beyond the basketball court. If he sponsored OSU, people wouldn't care.
Exactly, lets not hold different people to different standards based on jersey color.. That's a touch, dare I say hypocritical. Something OSU fans are never guilty of, ever.
We are ALL rooting for him!!!
Are we ALL? Because I think there are a large number of people that would love to see him get benched. These same people were calling for Braxton to be benched for Kenny G, though...
accused of rape
Accused and convicted are two different things.
Looking back at the details it sure does seem like he didn't do anything or at very least got caught up with the wrong girl.
Zeke got accused of assaulting a girl and people get in line to defend him, same with Carlos Hyde.
Maybe the program did the right thing by backing away, but lets not pretend this fan base wouldn't have defended him if the would have been signed.
Best player + Best team + Absurd numbers = JT winning it, anything less and he'll be passed up by the flavor of the month.
Your daily Zeke post. Bring the hate and let the sky fall.
there is a basketball play on your football uniform... stupid
Will it be stupid when Lebrons logo eventually ends up on Ohio States? They have his soldiers cleats, which are basketball shoes. Its only a matter of time.
Why is Iowa so low? That black helmet with black home jersey with the yellow hawkeye and yellow pants are solid.
I would like to see the cocaine whites rebooted at some point.
Yep I remember running a stretch where I had my trucks cc set on 90 and still getting passed like I was standing still.
Mornin buddy, you stayin safe with all the crazy weather out there?
Exactly Id be more surprised if he wasn't driving 100 in texas, I drove through that state, holy shit its like people are qualifying for NASCAR.
Sometimes the harder the lesson, the better its learned. Mornin' GTH!
Yep that's a solid strategy, because as we know everyone that puts on the OSU jersey is an outstanding person and would never do wrong.
I don't think you're allowed to do that around here, tread lightly my friend.
Zeke's pattern of behavior even bring up the domestic violence.
We now know he didn't do anything, but that fact he was even in the position and around people that would say that, is more of the indication, of what has happened since. Put yourself in bad situations, around people that don't have your best interests in mind, and you will continually have these kinds of outcomes.
Maybe he doesn't need to, for as big as OSU is, the bar scene and parties that he would attend arent that big.
I see you trying to defend him all over the pages this morning, and that's admirable, because accusations and twitter feeds and stories can all be taken with a grain of salt. In reality this isn't a singular act or accusation. Its a trend of bad decisions, and a pattern of immaturity. Defend it all you want, but whats the common denominator here? Zeke.
Youre not inferring a former Buckeye is anything less than a choir boy with the best of intentions at all times are you?
True true true
Surprised? Nope not really. He's got himself a case of superman disease. Eventually one of the little things is going to take a wrong turn into a serious thing, and he will be in a ton of trouble.
On another note, where you at Braxton2Devin?
Because ESPN hates Ohio State, of course.
I was going to go with a 7, but docked him a point for needing a "furthermore" its drunk guy at the bar equivalent to "you know what else..."
Is there any reason he still shouldn't be there?
