I logged in for the first time in a month just to up-vote you and SNGINWV!
Some of the ESPN analysts were saying the Mannings sold the the Giants on the Jones pick. Good luck listening to athletes.
I remember when Havlicek was offered a huge salary to go play in the old ABA. He declined the money saying that he didn't want the people of Boston to think less of him or the general public to think he played the game for just money.
Once in a generation kind of person.
Rest in peace Hondo!
As someone who studied psychology before changing majors I can with certainty tell you that people like living in their fairy tale world and don’t like anything that challenges belief (a form of cognitive dissonance). I can only imagine that the down voters are upset that I pointed out that, e.g., the last two Buckeye coaches were both outstanding faith and family men but had no problem with the work responsibilities that put them atop their field.
Simple logic dictates that something is probably wrong at home and Schiano needed to take some dramatic action to prove sincerity or to help alleviate a problem. Some of these downvoters are not smart enough to figure out that “you have to wonder” is not the same as “here is the reason”.
Further, even if true it is not a slam against Schiano, since many a good man has fallen and latter gotten his act together.
Lots of coaches can focus on faith, family and put long hours in at work. You have to wonder if he got caught cheating on the wife.
Trapasso doesn't seem too fond of Buckeyes.
Holtmann makes his guys play D. Put that with some scorers and real point guards and the ceiling is unlimited.
Houston was a very athletic team. I admired the way they drove to the basket and managed to hit those seemingly off balance shots.
Nice season for the Buckeyes with guys who were never expected to do much.
If Luther and CJ show some offense as well as CJ making good decisions at the point we should be okay.
The Cardinals - ROTFLMAO!
Yep, if McLaurin goes in the 4th it's grand theft for someone.
The Arizona Cardinals are already interested.
Fields may not have the arm of Haskins but he will develop, and those feet will more than compensate.
My lord what kind of kool-aid drinkers didn't understand what was going to happen here. One team at the top of the B!G playing a mediocre team that lost it;s best player, at home on senior day knowing they could play loose because it was not going to be a contest.
Buckeyes played pretty much the way you could expect under the circumstances.
Sorry but this will be a 20 point Purdue blowout unless the bucks shooting percentage is sky high. The Boilers will control everything around the basket.
The videos at RT looked like it could be a little better than the regular faith-based junk.

Excuse this personal sore spot for me. Don't coaches explain to players that the 3 point shot needs to come when you are somewhat relaxed and can follow through and not just tossed up because you think you have a crack at one?
Not an easy remaining schedule.
They need and should get this one and Northwestern at the Schott. Hoping they find a way to pick up another one or two.
Johnson was promoted to interim coach when Bill O'Brien left. Google was my friend. I do have to admit I was wrong about LJ not getting an interview for HC.
But Larry clearly was not happy at PSU.
There are some differences. I don't believe the "powers that be" had the decency to extend to Larry the courtesy of an interview for the HC position, and the new PSU white knight, little Jimmie Franklin, wasn't very interested in retaining LJ or he would have offered some kind of "assistant to the HC" position.
Curious as to how Buckeye fans would handle, let's say, Larry Johnson being hired as DC @ TTUN.
A little more than bold but not quite insane.
BOLD: not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff; courageous and daring
INSANE: not sane; not of sound mind; mentally deranged
And my football sources tell me that Urb got temporary ink.
Urban's tattoo went the way of Tressel's dreadlocks.
Coaches say silly things in the heat of battle.
