More drivel from this uninformed, gobbly-guck of a hack writer?   I want my money back!  And get off my yard!  Fire Fickell!  I hate my life and sunshine.  While we are at it, f#ck cute puppy dogs, cuddling babies and apple pie!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               - OCBucks

As somebody already pointed out, this is their 2nd major LB to go down for the year, in a position where they already lacked depth.  I ran into a Bama fan at lunch, and he was irate in talking about the injuries happening this close to the season to veterans that have nothing to prove on a practice field on August 28th, 3 days before the season opener.

I agree with the original question.  Seems odd that Day will be adjusting offensive schemes on the sideline while our defense will be in the heat of the battle.  Will timeouts really be 100% up to the Defensive Staff?  Will voicing an opinion on a bad call really be 100% up to the Defensive Staff?  Will the decision to  call a Defensive timeout late in the half to save time for our Offense really be 100% up to the Defensive Staff?  All those things seems to be the responsibility of the Head Coach, who - given this current design - will instead be focused on our next possession vs. the current possession that could be more important.

"Overtime is kind of like the Titanic movie in that you already know before you see anything that an iceberg, a great ship and dripping hubris are destined to meet at midnight. It's just a lot more romantic and inspiring than when 1,500 people died in the North Atlantic back during the golden era of Michigan football."

We are all in the midst of a G*D D*AMN Hemmingway, gentlemen! Legitimately one of the smoothest, funniest, and ironic paragraphs I've read in my lifetime!

That play was the cause of a recliner being gently (I'm serious) turned upside down in my basement.  I wanted to toss it violently, but as I approached the chair, my emotions had already turned into the demoralized "WTF?" stage.

What songs did you sing to her?  I once had a pet cat.  I sometimes wonder why my front left tire leaks air.  Yes, he is hilarious - I love that show.  Correct, our reservations are for 7:45pm next Thursday.

T-Bone. 

Any list of “forced nicknames” starts and ends with “T-Bone.”

Comment 22 May 2019

Similar to what LouBuck said, I often think the "conspiracy" is not giving the more talented team (nearly always Ohio State) any benefits of the doubt.  That feels like a consistent issue with refereeing.  Said another way, "will Ohio State really miss Jordan Fuller?  Probably not, so let's call it targeting."  It might sound crazy, but that's how I think about the discrepancies in calls we get & don't get.

Now, does that hold water when looking at Alabama & Clemson?  I don't know that and haven't looked into where they rank over the last 3-5 years on penalties.  But the 90's Florida State team come mind when thinking about the combination of lack of discipline & terrible officiating.

Is this game really on Sunday, December 29th?  If so, it will overlap with the Browns-Bengals game in Cincy.  That is one helluva early afternoon (assuming kick-off at 1pm) for Ohio sports.

Comment 19 Mar 2019

"Michigan was favored against Ohio State last season for the first time since 2011, and the Buckeyes won 62-39"

Are we sure about that?  I could've sworn that Michigan was favorites in 2015, the week after the calamity known as the Sparty game.  We proceeded to play like the team we'd been waiting for since the previous January vs. Oregon.

485.....That's the number of scholarships Ohio State would need to award to Ohio players for there to never be another ignorant fan say "But look at the kid from [fill in the random college team] tearing it up.  He should be a Buckeye over [fill in the random back-up player]."
