Nice write up and it's nice to know there are other big soccer fans in this group on 11W. Really quality stuff you wrote. Here's my thoughts: Completely dismissing athleticism in soccer is incorrect. While it doesn't matter as much as in some american sports, athletic traits (i.e foot speed, agility, quickness, coordination) are traits that set the best soccer players in the world apart. There's guys with great soccer smarts in every soccer loving country on the planet, but the best guys are all athletically gifted. Yes, you don't need to be a physical freak to be great at soccer, but you do have to be athletically gifted. That's a fact. The best strikers and forwards in the world all generally have great athletic gifts or are physically imposing. Ronaldo, Messi, Mbappe, Ibrahimovic, Lewandowski for example. Messi is small but his agility and coordination are unmatched in tight spaces. Maybe one day America will be a soccer loving nation and become one of the powers. But i can't see that happen unless American football dies out.
Is that a serious question? Lmao Russell Wilson, Ryan Tannehil, Carson Wentz, Deshaun Watson, Dak Prescott, Jacoby Brissett, Josh Allen, Kyler Murray, Mitch Trubisky, Pat Mahoney, Aaron Rodgers, Can Newton. And arm strength you’ve gotta he kidding me. Drew Breese, Russell Wilson, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Pat Mahomes, Sam Darnold, Ben Roethlesberger, Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz, Josh Allen should I continue?? PUT THE COOL-AID DOWN. Not saying he sucks, just saying he doesn’t possess elite tools and a super high ceiling.
Yes that would be a dumb argument...That’s not at all what I said. I said time consuming. I said he got to do football all day and they didn’t. Which is a fact. He even said he got to devote all of his time to football this year.
So you’re assuming that because someone attends an SEC college they don’t take academics seriously? Nice. Regardless of your major, schoolwork at the college level is time consuming.
Joe Burrow won’t be a world beater regardless of what franchise he goes to. He’ll finally be playing against people in his age bracket again lol. Doesn’t have elite arm talent or wheels. The other players will have all day to just do football like he did this year. This year it was him doing football all day and his competition doing football AND school. I just don’t see it.
What the hell is Haslem’s deal? It’s like the guy is allergic to home grown (Ohio) talent. Guy rarely drafts Buckeyes and now passed on McDaniels for the head job. Maybe they should pay me millions and let me make decisions for the organization too?? I can royally screw up over and over if that’s what they’re looking for.
This is a great hire for them. About is well as they could possibly do I’d say.
REMEMBER THE TITANS
Dalvin Cook Dalvin Cook Dalvin Cook. Can’t get over how similar these guys look to me
Gibbs is our sleeper guy! Hoping for good news.
I agree. Makes film from our other guys look meh. Hope we get this guy!
Best news all week! If my memory serves, quite a few “experts” in here need a full helping of crow this morning. Go Bucks!
Kid reminds me a lot of Dalvin Cook. Effortless explosiveness, shifty, strong, and another gear that 99.99% of guys don’t have.
I too grew up in Toledo in the 90’s and had to deal with the *ichigan fans up close and personal every year. It was rough, but this might be the hardest loss for me to get over in my lifetime as a Buckeye fan. I feel robbed, and still confused as to how in the hell all those dominoes fell in place for that hick Dabo and his team to walk away with a win when we were clearly superior.
I see where you’re coming from, but screw that. I could care less about other BIG 10 teams. I like to see the little guys winning (Minny, Indiana) but I could give a shit about this conference. For all I care they can stick Ohio State in the SEC East or the BIG 12 so we can abuse those teams on a yearly basis. Screw everyone else. They embellished in our suffering last week. Go Bucks!
Landers, Arnette, Hill, Mack. Feels like yesterday they were “commits” in high school. Awesome to see the development that takes place at Ohio State. Those 4 often set a tone on both sides of the ball that carried the Buckeyes in critical times. Someone’s gotta stop cutting onions in my kitchen.
I’m going to miss his physicality, toughness, and nastiness on defense. I can recall multiple games where he set an edgy, chippy tone. Rare to get those kind of cojones from a CB. It was awesome to watch.
I second this. Hope we get him longer but he’s on the verge of being a superstar.
This is awesome!
I second this, for very similar reasons. My 5 year old daughter was more heartbroken than me tonight. She balled her eyes out for 15 minutes straight after the interception to end it. Buckeye football isn’t a team, it’s a way of life for a lot of us. Great to the see our next generation will bleed Scarlett and Grey just like we do.
Army is bum juice. Go Navy.
That dude looks and sounds like an absolute chode
Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA is straight money bub. Also Elysian Space Dust and the IPA Survival pack from Terrapin.
