I agree unlike the BTN announcer who was incensed that anyone would say that players get tired and are not as sharp.
Rex was one of the original play fast guys. He would run a play before Woody could send it in with a sub and Woody would have chewed his ass but Rex's plays always worked so well.
Great word "doofy". You are not just a "doofus", you've got a touch of "goofy" too.
Grossi wants to be an encouraging and positive influence and that is admirable. Further JT is smart, understands defenses, is hard working and a great leader. All those attributes made him an excellent college QB.
But he has the same thing that killed Tebow's NFL dreams (and Tim worked his ass off trying to overcome it) - it's that his throws are a split second slower getting to the receiver. That won't do in the NFL and I'd be shocked if JT can overcome it.
Here's the problem with UC. There are many old timers like myself that carry a lot of weight at TOSU and we despise everything about Cincinnati. UC twice beat the greatest college basketball team ever assembled, and we don't easily forget! Both we and THEY wish they could live in Kentucky. And since the citizens there don't appreciate living in the great state of Ohio let's keep them in the minor leagues. :-)
Just keep winning. Learning how to better handle the press and doing a better job against the zone would on my wishlist too.
With all due respect to KBD, Turner became a one man show every time he took the floor. (And I don't believe I have ever seen yearly exponential growth like that dude exhibited).
If KBD never has an off night from here on out this team will create havoc in the Tourney. One great player surround by a supporting cast who play with heart will spell trouble for anyone.
Izzo touched upon it, his mid-range game is special. Not many guys can drain a two in traffic with the sense to understand that it's the best option.
You have to read stories today with the knowledge that journalism died more than 30 years ago. Now it's all about creating controversy, having a crackpot opinions and getting clicks because those are the money makers.
Fair grades all around. Holtmann is like someone opened the door in a fart factory.
The playoff committee is nothing more than a social gathering. These people have no clue as to which team is better than another but they have lots of fun getting their asses kissed and feeling self important.
That fact alone makes the system worthless for determining a true national champion. With 8 teams at least you have a good shot of determining who is the best in the sport. However more that 8 does make the system unwieldy.
Did we ever find that camera man? I thought Urb was on a mission to track him down.
First, I wish Ward every success and will always consider him a Buckeye.
I do think many of us as fans are guilty of living in the fantasy land of bullshit shoveled out about the brotherhood of the team. Anyone with a brother support him until he gets in the way of your earning power?
Actually it was better to let Ward sit out than to have someone on the field who wasn’t going to play with 100% commitment. It’s far better to let another athlete play who actually wanted to win the game and support his teammates to the very end.
I'll remember and laugh at the Gus Johnson barbecue call until the day that I die.
North Carolina's loss was not good news for the Buckeyes because chances are that NC will have an attitude and play with more effort.
It's downright scary how close Grega is in predicting final scores.
I might take his insights to Vegas and make some money.
Who is creating most of the drama, Jones or the press who report that he laughed while visiting a school, so that's a clue?
As Andrew reported it is confusing that the Tide don't seem to be pushing here and perhaps they believe him to be fairly happy with his initial pick. Could be that he is having some fun with the attention and recruitment and these numerous suitors showing him some love.
Yea Beau knows his stuff and Eleven Warriors on Spectrum Sports is appointment TV for me.
Watch out for Martel if he ever gets game time minutes.
First I am glad that the Buckeyes don't get Creamed by Clemson again. But the committee has no clue about who are the best teams, hell USC may be better than Alabama.
I have a horrible feeling JT is not well and Haskins will see extended playing time. I think Wisconsin is aware and will do everything to take advantage of Haskin's inexperience. Inevitable turnovers. Hope I am wrong!
I don't think it's the coaches. Some players have outstanding athletic ability but just can't handle the complexity of the game and need time to adjust to new offensive schemes.
Completely not true. Silver said that it was close but that Clinton was the favorite. Also said that the dynamics of the polling were very odd and cautioned that nothing would surprise him.
Getting bad feelings about this game. Hope the Buckeyes bring their A game because Wisky feels disrespected and will bring an attitude.
So getting crushed by a team that couldn't win their conference playoff adds what to your resume?
