he would choose to go Pro. He'll be 22 in November, 23 already in someone's Fall NFL camp. I would go pro if I were him - but I'm not. :P

but just can't bring myself to set as wallpaper.
I work halfway between Toledo and Columbus - way too many NO$U slappies around these parts.

Green as a solid 2...which really means he is a 3 once the 1a/1b thing shakes out. Was hoping he'd turn the corner and take charge of the RB spot.

Please follow these basic rules:
1. Get off ball quickly; anticipate snap count; explode from stance.
2. Keep shoulders low and square, back straight, neck bowed with head up; eyes focused straight ahead.
3. Keep feet on ground; plant power foot forcibly; generate power from ground up through legs and back.
4. Legs drive with short, choppy steps; maintain wide base.
5. Finish block with hip thrust and arm extension forward and upward until play ends.
6. When pulling, do not lean in direction of pull.
7. On double-team blocks, maintain hip-to-hip relationship, drive up and through defender; finish block together.
8. On combination blocks, both linemen start in one direction and determine blocking targets on the move.
That'll get ya through. LOL

I'm old...what do you want from me?!?! These newfangled meme contraptions have me all confused!
|1 week 6 days ago||Note||
for the record, good sir. I have not once said I disagree with your assessments. Your delivery method was my point of contention.
That being said, points in question:
There were multiple instances of OL with their head down. I don't like that they are creating initial strike with the crown of their helmets in some drills rather than being head up. Your helmet shouldn't be the first thing to strike the blocking pad - or seemingly even at the same time as the initial punch.
Effort - not sure if there is a big difference in strength between some of these guys, but for a two-man sled to go sideways multiple times makes me wonder about effort. Context - shoulder pads and helmets..and no one was screaming at them to drive through the whistle...
Initial punch - these are not "full go" exercises and drills but the initial punch and strike should rock your opponent. I didn't see enough of this, but again - context. Shoulder pads and helmets.
Move to second level - again, not full go - but disengaging from initial power block to move to 2nd level before your linemate has the DL fully controlled is a concern...but this isn't "real" action.

more than someone doesn't have to make you talk down to others. That's all I am saying.
SC and others use their knowledge to educate and elucidate sometimes complex schemes and system designs. Although these complex schemes are second nature to you, they are not for everyone. Those who recognize that others aren't on the same level and use their knowledge to teach are valuable to the board. By talking down to and criticizing the knowledge of others, you turn off people to the opportunity to learn from you.

and pass the joint please
|1 week 6 days ago||Thanks||
I read the background here and had a good laugh. Thank you for the feedback. I will definitely pick more appropriate memes in the future. :)
|1 week 6 days ago||Random||
Not really random. I've been involved in a few threads where your condescension towards the football IQ of others has been palpable. You clearly feel you know more than the rest of us as evidenced by your constant passive aggressive comments (as highlighted by SC).
Just because you've coached before doesn't make you an expert on the inner workings of a given drill that you (a) don't know the context or what was being repped (again, thank you SC), and (b) whether it was immediately corrected and coached up. These cut-up scenes may seem like evidence of Funk's inability to develop these YOUNG players, but the small sample size and lack of context make it difficult to make an accurate solution.
Having played and coached at both the High School and College level myself, I can see TEACHABLE moments in that clip - but would not purport to flame anyone who disagrees with my opinion. (Yeah, CSB).
Your opinion would be much more appreciated if not laced with inflammatory dismissals of anyone who doesn't agree with you. SC and others provide input and welcome discourse on their opinions. You do not. Your fallback response is automatic every time: "You don't know as much as me, so STFU".
So, NOT random.
I know, TL;DR

|1 week 6 days ago||Your elitist comments||
These types of statements are what make you come off as a <Insert derogatory name here>.

Probably did - but that dude definitely looks like a dick.

Thank you BlastDouble...whatever would we do without you. /s
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
for the additional information. Hard to tell their intent but also hard to know what exactly was going on.
+1 for you to negate the downvote when you were just backing up your story.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Where||
did you see that he was charged to fix it, and/or that he was taking steps to do so? The report from the investigation talks of Waters himself using sexually degrading terms to refer to band members, involvement in the replication of sexual acts during band sessions based on those names, and basically saying "welp!" to the investigators when presented with the facts.
Sorry, but as the father of a daughter entering band this fall I fail to see this guy as a role model who should be retained.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yep||
I had to defriend two people on Facebook after all the rants and raves against OSU's administration and the "lynching" of Waters. Their defense is that it has been that way for a LONG time, not just on Waters' watch.
I need to do a better job of managing my Facebook friends list apparently. /s (not /s)

It will be difficult for someone to say: "Hey check out this section in Book 3 as it's important in book 5" without providing some context that will be (a) confusing because you haven't read those books yet, and (b) are potential spoilers.
I say you finish up the series and then re-read or skim to look where you might have missed some foreshadowing. Otherwise, alot of it might not make sense or you will end up doing it again later anyways since you will know more of the story.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||Yep!||
I've mistakenly created a diary before and just ask politely in a comment: "Mods - please move to Forum Post".
It's not THAT long...and those who think it is TL;DR they can just pass it over - I think it's worth a read!

Hey says Ok a lot.
Intense dude though.

recommend moving this to a Forum post. I think this is a great comparison and will get more "looks" from the MGoFaithful in the forums.

This is what I hate about the rankings...they value quantity over quality WAY too much.
Northwestern is above Michigan AND Wisconsin soley based on volume. If you base the rankings on QUALITY, Michigan is clearly #1.

if you go to the link in the OP and right-click on the image, that option isn't available. That is always my go to though...
