Didn't Shamansky represent Dr. Sam Shepards son's drive to try and clear his name back in the 90s?
No one will ever recruit the Great State of O-H- for Sparty again like Dino. Growing up in SE Ohio, being on Tress's staff in early 2000s, than Cincy HC before heading to MSU after one year there gave him a huge advantage in finding really good 3 star recruits in and all around the Buckeye State. Dino was a no nonsense, stoic demeanor, boring personality, Coach, but it worked up there. His lack of hiring better Coordinators caught up with him eventually. Too bad Mr. Mark Anthony "Bo" Pelini left for LSU, that would have been a good fit for Sparty.
I like this kids whole demeanor. He possesses a great frame and he's def not filled out yet, which Mick will take care of that. I have a feeling one of these 2 will transfer out a-la Joey Burrow. Especially if B1G passes the one time, no questions, transfer out w/immediately eligibility. Crazy to think that technically the Buckeyes possibly could have the top THREE picks in '20 NFL Draft. Sure his exciting times for Buckeye Nation right now!!!
I hope we keep finding "gems" in Central O-H area and they contribute on the field as much as Malik and Lee have.
I think he brought this on himself when he burned the bridges leaving town. All the bs about people being mean to his wife at Krogers. I think he feels he should be our Golden Boy and he's far from it. I feel he is the face/voice of College football and does a bang up job with every game/team except Buckeyes. He's never been able to be Clark Kellogg, although many can't. Clark is fair, but tough but loves his Buckeyes. I remember last year when we won our first game in the NCAAs and they panned to him right after seeing us paste our team to the next level of bracket and said 'I'm just so dog gone proud of those boys" and you could see it in his face. He's Gold.
This needs updated after the show after that last block on air.... ALOTTA love for THE on that set... which is totally different from yrs past.
CLASSIC!!! Could you imagine if we were known for those older fine young gentleman being in-game entertainment?
PahAHAHAHAHA !!!!! Michigans pieee-pinwheel chart looks like a shitty cut ghost costume on Halloween
New team, New Coach, New era. #1 THE ... No need to worry, this team has a totally different MO
I see what you did there
Great job!!! I always look forward to film study each week!
BOOM!!!! This team is so sound, what a VICTORY!!! The ‘Shoe was a rockin! Great Team W Buckeyes!!!
Wow is that Hunter Wohler a ball player! My gawd can he cover ground quickly and lay the wood when he gets there. I hope we get him, and not his hometown University. He kinda reminds me of Rob Kelley.
A Cow?? I have nothing..
Straight outta Saban/Tress school of Coaching. I don't know how true it was, but I read an article back in '12 after Urb got the OSU job and Dino didn't get a sniff that he planned on becoming Urb/OSU biggest thorn. Well he did and spoiled TWO of Urbans chances at possibly 2 more Natty's. Thank goodness that train never left the station, he would have been totally the wrong choice and Buckeye Nation would not have ever warmed up to him.
Is it me or does Okudah look like Malcom X here? Maybe its Woody's specs, I dunno.
Did we recruit him out of HS? I had never heard of him until he came after quitting baseball.
The way some of these "beat" reporters needle, dig, and poke these Players for a negative response kills me "Does it bother you that you don't have a catch yet" ~~Lori Schmidt, Dan Hope, and DougLESS ... try some positive questions, clearly your negative probing is not gonna crack the cohesiveness of this team. If I was Jerry I would revoke some of these clown's passes if they can't work some angles of positivity once in awhile.
I too appreciate that we have TWO great leaders (Young, Fields) each on one side of the ball... if you wanna throw Olave in there as a Captain on special teams, he seems to really have a knack for blocking kicks. When The Man says at the podium that Olave is really good at this, hes our leader with that particular Group of young men in my eyes. We are just untapping the potential this team has, this Coaching staff is figuring this out with each game and it shows.
This OL group have a nastiness about them that I have not seen since some of those dominant lines that Earle Bruce had. I concur!
I said the same thing (statement win) to a group of friends/fam gathered at my home watching the game... some disagreed. I also said that the days of us struggling at House Hoosiers is over. Crazy part of this, it seemed rather easy on our part.
Cooper's Bowl game record was less than stellar as well.
The only thing more amazing than this piece, was Kris's life. I visit this read every 9/11 and leave with a bigger pit in my stomach and more tears than the year before, good food for the soul as my Mother always said. Thx Ramzy.
