My first day as an OSU freshman, my college roommate introduced my country ass to both bourbon and Springsteen. That was a night.
Quote from a commenter there: "I ignored the game. Big game, on the road, after a bye week.... And I made the right call. The lawn looks good, and it was a better use of time."
You may think there's little to hate, but I was there in 2004, and these people are the worst winners in the world. They didn't know how to handle it.
I think how fans handle winning shows you more about their character than how they handle losing. Folks in Iowa last year were ecstatic and even friendly. Northwestern fans were just ***holes.
Yeah, I was there too. Most unpleasant Big Ten road experience I ever had was dealing with those fans when they won. People that bad at winning should not be allowed to do it.
Wasn't likely to end well anyhow. Fleck's probably figuring at least it will take longer to run around this kid.
It's true good players aren't always good coaches. The players who blow past everyone else with raw talent rarely do. But players who don't have that kind of talent, who succeed because they learn every smallest detail about the position that can give them an edge, and then work relentlessly to develop those skills, those players sometimes wind up the best coaches around.
Hartline was reasonably talented as a receiver, but he made his living off of developed skills and hard work. If he can teach it, he'll be a good one, and it sounds like he knows how to teach it.
God, that first semester can be such a shock. Korbyn, a lot of us small-town kids have been where you are. 30-some years ago I was the class brain in a small school in western Ohio, and the first semester had me wondering if I could hack it. It's a huge change from where you came from.
But I think you'll find it just keeps getting better from here. Ohio State's size can be tough and impersonal at first, but everything you need is here, once you figure out how to find it.
Kudos to Coach Meyer for helping her find her balance. But I always kind of figured that's one reason someone like him becomes a coach in the first place. Good job.
Yeah, I wanted them to put him in the backfield and hand him the ball, at least once. Would have been a heck of a thing to see.
It's because Bruce used him as a messenger guard his junior year. All that talent, and he only played half the offensive downs.
That was kind of the final straw for me with Bruce, on top of losing three games every year to nobodies. Watching Lachey run to the sideline after pulling and just killing a DE or LB was painful. That year I joined the Fire Earle chorus.
Yes, damn JT and his inability to cover the tight end. /s
Going to be a lot of people on this board upset if Haskins struggles as the starter. Won’t have much behind him to turn to when Burrow transfers
Both are unproven.
I've hired a number of people over the years. Connections will get your resume' looked at, maybe even an interview, but I really need to believe you can do the job before I'll hire you. I'd say she's proven she can do the job. I'd bet Chris Holtmann feels just a little better with someone proven in the gym.
To me, this game comes down to two things: Can our receivers actually get open, and can Isaiah Prince move his damn feet? If those two things happen, J.T. will have time to throw and somebody to throw to, and the whole playbook opens up.
Lil' Red is way more disturbing than #5.
Honestly, these are the second-friendliest fans I've encountered in the Big Ten, after Iowa's.
Excellent to see Dixon having such a great night.
Not downvoting you for your opinion. You've got a right to your opinion. Downvoting you for putting it here.
A lot of great football from J.T.
5 Things Brian Hartline Said About Terrelle Pryor (and 1 about Dwayne Haskins): You Won't Believe Number 4
Why would you demean our victory that way?
No, he doesn't ;).
Condolences on your daughter's poor educational choice, but congratulations on keeping her in line. ;)
Rest up McDowell. Gonna need you next week.
Did you bring enough for everyone?
Probably true, but this year Sparty doesn't have the D-Line to repeat last year's futility. I doubt if we cover, but I feel pretty confident about this one.
