I want Bama in the Shoe on their cupcake week in November.
OSU under Tress any longer would have faded from being a national program, into a better version of Sparty. It got to the point vs the SEC where we were all thrilled to just beat Arkansas. Not Alabama, not even LSU or Auburn, but Arkansas. Tress could not recruit with Urban or the SEC, I'm sure there would have been years where we made the playoffs with him, but the SEC and Clemson would curb stomp us into oblivion.
I'm sure he would have been a receiver, that's what he played and that's his mentality, but I've always thought his most value would have been as a pass rusher. He's 6'8" - 285 (obviously wasn't that big then) and lightning fast. That coming off your blindside would be scary.
Exactly. He loses nothing by saying he would have played for OSU, the program has fully embraced him just by saying it and he gets to hang out on the sidelines whenever he wants.
But the likely reality knowing his personality, he would have picked Duke or a similar team. That Duke team would have been nasty, they lost by 1 in the Final 4 with Redick / Deng / Sheldon Williams / Duhon, put Lebron in and they cruise to the title.
I came here just to say that exact same thing.
There are people able to legally drink who likely only remember 2 losses to Michigan. Largely unrelated to the topic, just something I think is pretty cool.
Tyrian is a Targ, the half brother of Jon
Jamie kills Cersei, "the mad queen" (him killing the mad king is a key start of the story)
The final scene will be revealed to be Bran the tree telling the full grown king child of Jon & Danny the entire story with most all of everyone in the whole series dead.
Bowling Green to Toledo - 25 miles
Akron to Kent St - 12 miles
Just two random Ohio ones.
41-14 says everything it needs to about Tressel vs Urban....
I'm sure I'm the only one, but I always think of an "H-Back" position being a TE/FB hybrid, guys like Chris Cooley / Aaron Hernandez etc. Drives me nuts how we call what's really just an extra WR a "H-Back".
I really want to say "LOL ESPN, who cares"
But it seems pretty obvious they are one of if not the largest voice in the room when it comes to the CFP and sadly this stuff matters.
If you are seeing commercials like that you need to reevaluate your life and entertainment choices.
I love the moral gymnastics fans use to rationalize for their team. I imagine the comments here would be very different if he signed with Baltimore or Pittsburgh....
AJ Green sells his jersey, slap on the wrist. Our guys sell theirs and we lose a natty.
I've seen Sam Hubbard. Pete Werner is no Sam Hubbard.
From what I saw QB play is going to be a real issue. IMO around the rest of the field there's not a huge drop off from a rotational player vs a guy who didn't make the roster and is now in this league. But QB, there's a massive drop off from an average starter to a guy on the street.
3 years / $250K is probably a paycut for several top prospects when you consider all the meals + fringe benefits, housing, training facilities, any credits they accumulate towards a degree, plus "benefits" (I'm sure Cam Newton isn't the only guy to get a suitcase...)
Show was decent when Maddy and Eric could gang up on Bruce and call him out on his old man out of touch takes. It took a steep turn downhill when it became Bruce largely by himself doing a terrible imitation of Cowherd / Clay Travis / Skip Bayless.
They literally just read the "Pro sports talk" app and make the dumbest, low hanging fruit jokes possible about whatever story. They provide zero insight and zero entertainment.
Jackson & McCoy are so much better than the fat & common man. Sad sad day. Even if I disagreed with 85% of what Hooley said, he was still better than Mike and his kid.
This isn't nearly bad as naming off 3 guys on IR / out of the league during his Chiefs - Chargers preview flub, but it's pretty obvious SAS isn't watching much (or any) actual games.
However, if anyone is watching this show (I could stop there...) expecting actual analysis vs hot takery, they are the ones off base.
2002 =/= 2019
Outside of live events and the occasional 30 for 30 I watch nothing on ESPN...
Yes, nothing is not fact.
But I also read and came away with the idea they are trying to imply things are heading downhill here with Day. It's all a matter of perspective, you can either say "Ohio St. has lost 3 recruits committed under Meyer since Day was named head coach and only has 8 top 300 players, a sharp decline from last year" or you can say "Ohio St won the battle for Zach Harrison, landed Justin Fields, has the 3rd highest average rating per prospect in the nation in what everyone knew would be a small class and is now potentially closing with 2 olinemen late in the game."
ESPN (at least that individual writer) has decided to play up the potential negative things since the transition from Urban to Day. It's pretty par for the course on their OSU coverage. They do it so the articles end up on sites like this and drive more clicks.
