HA! Not what I was thinking... :)
...and the clap.
This is super shady. That whole FSU program has always been dirty.
Rutgers, while athletically inept, brings the NY market ($$) with it. I could make good arguments for drumming them, Maryland, or Indiana, frankly if we were looking only at sports. Academically, it's a different picture, though, and most tend to forget that the foundational concepts of the conference were actually academic. Due to that, I would definitely put the target on Maryland first.
B1G hitter. Great hire.
Maybe with his ND connections, he'll finally persuade those fools to join the B1G and kick Maryland out?
Ryan's overcome a lot - more than anyone but him would have ever guessed was possible - and we as Buckeyes should definitely all be proud of him and encouraged by example.
Tough Steelers? He's got some stiff competition with Rocky Bleier.
Wow, who would've guessed that so many Buckeyes were playing for dough overseas?!? Really speaks to the difficulty of making it in the NBA when you see how positively most of them are contributing, too.
Must. Have. One. Mo......
Can't say that I've seen anything like that in person, but I do know that their liberal return policy affects their suppliers, one of whom I work for now and one of whom I used to work for. Wierdest RTV we ever got from them was a hat that was coated in vomit - one of their customers bought it, threw up on it in their car, then took it back into the store and exchanged it. They wanted us to take it back. I, of course, so "no way", and they, of course, pointed to some arcane fine print in our supplier agreement that said it was allowable. We had to give them credit for the return because they were under their allowable rolling average RTV amount of 2 months or something. Stupid, but if you want to do business with them, this is the tradeoff that you accept.
My all-time favorite Buckeye hoopster. Very sad day for Buckeye nation.
Totally agree. If it is a tie-breaker between a couple of canditates on their efforts and ethics, sure, give me the person who scores higher.
THIS^^^ Some of the dumbest people I've ever met had the best academic pedigrees and/or highest IQ's. Give me someone who will be persistent and push through adversity any day over someone who has all the answers but is usually wrong.
Damn, I'm getting ready to take an extended assignment in Frankfurt - wish they'd have waited a few months! That would have been cool to see firsthand!
The latest update:
1. Carmody's dad is the Mars Area HS football coach.
2. His brother is a basketball player for Notre Dame; might have an impact on his decision, although it seems he hasn't expressed a "lean" yet.
3. He is equally talented in both basketball and football, and an ability for (not a commitment to) playing both may factor into his decision on where he goes.
All for now - will update as I learn more.
Agreed, and Columbus >>>>> State College.
Trying to get some intel from a friend who lives in Mars and who might know Carmody's mom.
Extra good wishes for you and your health, Hove, and thanks for the great work you all do here. Heal quickly! (SPRING) FOOTBALL'S ALMOST HERE :)
I haven't been off toilet or barback duty in there for all that long... I need all the help I can get so they'll let me keep hanging around!
Happy National Mods Day <newly-declared by me, declarer of all such things>. March 22nd annually.
Oooh, man, you're skating on the razor's edge, there.... +1
Looks more like a poop emoji to me.
Just logged on to say the same thing! Cutesy errant passes and dumb fumbles will kill any chance of winning.
Thanks! They say memory is the first thing to go in aging, and I guess I am starting to believe that’s true.
Great Skully, Kevin!
One question, as I am a bit of a Twitter luddite: is that boss Schlegel autographed photo Doss’, or does it belong to someone else? I think it’s the former, but I’m not sure Schlegel coached Doss’ teams. They’re both OSU family, so I get that may not matter, but just curious.
Whether it was Holtmann pulling the trigger or the AD is immaterial. The fact is that if what you are saying is true, Holtmann could/likely should have dismissed him from the team and didn't. This is what coaches can do to teach a kid an important lesson, namely that when people believe in you and are willing to stick their necks out for you to have a second chance, the choice then rests with you. I imagine that Keith probably weighed in with him on this, too.
Oh, and on the school thing? Talk to Greg Oden about how he feels about that. Granted, his circumstances for leaving were different, but if Wesson's not ready for the NBA, why would he want to leave right now? Getting paid to play is a goal, certainly, but why take a more difficult path than one has to? He absolutely should stick around another year and get ready.
