I think our incoming super frosh OT is more likely to start next season if both OT's go Pro than Dawand. Playing emergency tackle against a beaten defense for a few snaps in the second half of a blowout does not mean much for next season. Certainly he could continue to lose weight, get stronger and challenge for the spot but it would be a tough row to hoe.
I would think just the opposite in regards to going to the league with a history of being a bit injury prone, it's going to hurt his draft slot. Play his senior year injury free and he helps himself move up the draft board. None of the injuries are career threatening so theirs no concern about longevity if he can make the league.
PSU is the only game that concerns me even a little.
Yeah, they had a couple drops early.
It will be alright, just means they score 13 points instead of 10.
Crap, 32 was blown off the line and the RB ran right by him, let the fun begin
OSU played MSU last week?
If you are going to replace him with a grad or transfer then why not just keep the guy that's been in the program for another year?
They certainly are not transparent regarding suspension lengths or reasons. In this case though you are looking at an extended period and a surgery that would be difficult to hide.
If difficult to predict but the portal has been pretty good to the Bucks thus far, starting LG and QB for the loss of a couple second string QB's last season( I know, a WR and a few non factors as well). I would imagine that the Buckeyes would be a prime location for a graduate RB or someone wanting to put a year on tape for the Pro's.
Sure, the top dozen college RB's are treasure but I think that there are a ton of plug and play RB's that would be just fine in this offense.
Emergency QB to save a high school season but it doesn't enhance his college position, provide experience there and greatly increases the chance of injury. Going to take away a ton of work out time with tape study too.
I do like it that the young man is willing to sacrifice for his friends and teammates though, not enough of that today.
That's too bad, I guess they thought he could rehab and not require surgery but made the wrong call. It's always a tough decision for the team and player but so often the rehab just doesn't work out and surgery from day two would have been the better option all around.
He came in so young and since he's not really NBA caliber perhaps he might consider the redshirt option and get to extend the best time in his life a bit longer.
I won't cat you out, no worries.
Probably right and sufferers will then get handicap signs so they don't have to walk as far when they shop at Walmart.
For sure man, that grass is only going to slow down Buckeye LB's and not NW's offensive players. Truth be told, poor field conditions favor the mud humpers, the LESS athletic more so then the fast. Now the little RB's might be able to hide in the tall grass................
While VERY funny and great in my mind, other MODS might bann you for a month for being political, in their minds anyway.
Saw grass would give you boo-boo's.
Yeah, I have nine stitches in the forehead from you but that's the fun part of the game. Blood on the court, a couple butterfly's to get you through the game and taking a charge to put the big boy on the bench.
Crap, That's right, it seems like a year since he transferred but it's only been since May.
No, they can't and won't. I've visited a dozen wolf and wolf hybrids that grew up to be terrific pets that tore a neighbor or family member up.
Somebody was whispering in Harrison's ear that he should go last season?
Might have to go back to a more traditional two safety, two corner alignment as a base defense because of the talent that's left after this year. I think the main reason we are running three corners is because of the talent at that position and if two safeties put the best four DB's on the field...……………...
That layup weave under the basket cost me a broken arm and my Junior High season many a year ago.
ODA has an area set aside on their complex East of Columbus for these wild animals. They take care of them until they find a wildlife sanctuary that will take the animals. Perhaps the law has changed but at one time a dead dog was worth the price that you paid for it, nothing for pain and suffering or the like. It was treated like a procession only and valued at that rate. With all the fake service animals and made up emotional support animals out there I'm sure the law has changed.
Thank you for your kind comment, I appreciate it very much.
