Something is ALWAYS going on at Baylor. Sexual abuse coverups, murdered basketball players, recruiting violations...how this school manages to avoid the death penalty is beyond me. What a disgrace. If Baylor were to play Xichigan, I would actually have to root for the team up north. Have I mentioned how much I despise Baylor athletics?
All class. He handled this process like a pro. I wish him much success.
The shot of the scoreboard reading 24-0 marks the moment when I decided I had had enough of this game and instead to spend the rest of the afternoon at the Varsity Club drowning my sorrows. Fortunately, my much wiser and more patient friend convinced me to stay at the Shoe. Thank God I listened. Probably the best Buckeye game I ever attended. Great memories!
Thinking the exact same thing. Mods can you assist, please?
Sorry, but which studies have said that further lockdowns are not the proper path? Was this for California? What was the basis for the conclusion? I would be interested to read the study. Thanks
From this point forward, every new hire at Eleven Warriors will be judged strictly on their words-per-minute typing ability. Nothing else matters.
I would have sworn that was already the case LOL
Welcome Abel! We needed that experienced guard on the roster. Looks like a solid addition, comes from a good program.
A worse punishment would be to require that he continue to be a Vols insider for the rest of his life.
Love this! Percy was a big part of those great teams of the late 90s, and a Columbus guy too IIRC. Everyone can learn about taking risks and preparation from his experiences
100% agree. To me Earle was the prototypical coach who could turn a mediocre team into a good team but could not turn a good team into a very good or great team. I remember when we lost to MSU in 1987(?) there was a video taken by the mom of one of the OSU players where she literally called every offensive play before the snap. He signed some legends--Cris Carter, Pepper Johnson, Keith Byars--but had lots of guys on D who were not very fast or strong. By the end we had lost any ability to recruit effectively outside of, and to an extent inside of, the state of Ohio (remember Elvis Grbak being recruited as punter??).
Damn, I saw that and immediately took MSU and 25 points in Vegas on the very early 2023 line.
A digression—“porous” is a word I have seen a lot recently in 11W pieces. Not sure how “having holes which can be easily penetrated” applies to poor shooting?
that said, lots of good observations here. Getting Young and Wash back and healthy should cure a lot of what ails us.
Perhaps the only team I would root for Michigan to beat. For an alleged Baptist Christian school, they have no real problem with covering up campus rapes, shooting of a basketball player, etc. Baylor can't lose often enough IMO.
I live in south Florida. The morning after OSU beat Miami for the 2002 national title, I tuned in to Miami's all-sports radio WQAM on my way to work. An alleged lawyer called into the show and spent 5 minutes telling the hosts how Miami got screwed by the PI call, etc. He then stated, with the tone of a DA announcing a high-profile prosecution, that had written a letter of protect to the NCAA, demanding that they provide redress for the missed call (presumably, award Miami the championship despite the result of the game)
18 years later I can still remember how pompous and idiotic this guy sounded, and wonder how anyone in the world would take seriously a lawyer who thought such a letter would matter. The moral I took away from this incident is--let it go. Officials have always sucked to some degree, and will continue to suck at more or less the same level notwithstanding any technical advances in the profession.
Between depression and acceptance. Fortunately I got the rage out of my system early, after the TD following the Wade penalty. Fact is we made too many mistakes to expect to win a game against a team as good as Clemson. But still a great season.
I for one am glad to see Jashon Cornell recognized. Dude was a 5 star who basically did whatever the coaches asked him to do to make the team better. Got to love a guy like that. I think he epitomizes what the players mean when they talk about the Brotherhood.
Love that story about Cardale. Great guy with a terrific sense of humor.
Also, I follow Jared Foley on Twitter and he may be the greatest Buckeye/Bluejackets fan of all. Give him a follow @bearfoley if you can
Zero chance Urban would take this job. That program is a mess right now. FSU alums in South Florida have practically lost interest in the team. And why would Urban want to move to Tallahassee at this point?
"He worked out on the court with his older brother, Andre Wesson, at Woodward Park Community Recreation Center." Hey, I won an intramural league championship at Woodward Park Rec in 1978 as a 9th grader! Nice to see hoop greats of today continue to spend time there :)
Talented player, I hope he thrives at his next stop. Good luck!!
I never saw Kern but saw the others on your list play almost every game. Hoying and Germaine were good enough but don’t have Greene’s resume. Hoying never beat UM, vs. Corny who rallied the team from down 7 in 4th qtr in AA to keep the 1975 unbeaten. Germaine had a great season but split time with Stanley Jackson for a year, so body of work is somewhat thin. Schlichter and Greene were both outstanding and won a lot of games, I could go either way on that one. Anyway, point is I think he deserves more consideration for top 5 status. I would personally rank him ahead of JT behind Kern and Troy.
I disagree with Kevin on the Corny Greene legacy. Silver football winner, loses 3 games in his career, Rose Bowl MVP and HOF, and he's almost certainly not in top 5 all time? What criteria are we using?
I will echo Buckeyestu on this. Seems like a great addition. Welcome!
I love these stripe-removal videos. Reminds me that these are just kids—enormous kids, but still. Go Bucks!
