"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

The "unofficial" times they announce are hand timed by someone from the NFL. The "official" times are the actual electronic timing data. Just goes to show why hand timed 40's are worthless.
If you're fast you're fast, but 100 meter dash is more sprinting mechanics at the top end of the run than the first 40 yards. Also the clock starts when the gun goes off, not when they start to move.

Gesicki was 50/50 Buckeye/Penn State, and BOB was his lead recruiter. Buckeyes still don't have a TE in this class. If there was an odd man out in their number crunch, it would be Smith. This feels like they told him his spot isn't guaranteed anymore with Gesicki back in play.

I dream of a day we don't have to sit here making bullshit moral high ground arguments to reassure each other Michigan football is still special.

I think Borges is still stuck on the pre-Walsh idea that you HAVE to run to set up the pass. No matter what.

Great. Let them more off the clock before they score. This is an abortion.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Huh?||
I would hardly call the 49ers and the Seahawks shitty organizations with shitty QB's. Both made deep playoff runs when he was with them, both were thin at WR, and in both cases he failed to seperate himself from the other WR's on the roster. They aren't high passing attempt teams, but neither were the Jets when Braylon was with them on their 2009-2010 playoff runs and played pretty well. If there is something wrong, it's with Braylon.

"So, you are saying essentially that a bouncer at a bar like you probably should judge cases of violence against women?"
No, the police should, and did in this case, and it's a rare day to see charges actually pressed unless there is some visible physical damage and we don't really have any evidence of that. No, he should have struck back at her, and no, she should not be held blameless for striking out at him in the first place.
I guess I don't care about Urban Meyer as much as everyone else on this board seems to. Trying to use case law regarding domestic violence below to justify why a prosecutor would move forward on this is so ignorant of the realities of law enforcement and the justice system I can't see this going anywhere with you, though.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Having worked security at||
Having worked security at horrible night clubs in my less fruitful years, I've probably seen this same incident play out about 5000 times. Hyde and the girl both acted like immature youths at a night club, mood altered by alcohol. She should not have slapped at him, and he should not have slapped back. I would think Hyde deserves some sort of punishment by their coaching staff, but police would not waste time with an issue like this at any club I worked at. It's not excuseable to strike at someone, but people acting like a real violent crime was committed here or, "THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN SW MICHIGAN" sound like a bunch of neck beards who haven't left mom's basement much. And this certainly didn't deserve the media attention it has received.

Tom Herman, who pretty much everyone including Buckeye sites believe will be gone for a HC role next year.

FWIW, the alleged victim in this case left the country on Sunday for vacation. Columbus police are saying they will release the video and any charges after they interview her upon her return. Apparently her absence has been what's keeping this thing from reaching a conclusion.

Do you really think someone should be kicked off of a team and lose their scholarship for being named a person of interest? I wouldn't want our coaches handling it differently. Suspend them from team activities until the facts are worked out.

I really hope half the people in these threads are Ohio/MSU trolls trying to make Michgian fans look like half-wit butt hurt morons.

I can tell how many people here have never worked with youths from the communities that college football recruits often come from.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Carlos Hyde is the best||
Carlos Hyde is the best player on Ohio's offense. Great size and speed and he hits the hole like a dump truck. He'd be a monster in a pro-style offense.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Ohio produces well over twice||
Ohio produces well over twice as many D1 recruits as Michigan year in year out, and the state is recruited heavily by all the national players. The 2/3 star players that Cincinnatti can pull in aren't guys who wind up at Ohio State. We always have been and always will be the biggest threat to pluck top Ohio recruits.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Interesting stuff in there.||
Interesting stuff in there. I'm sure everyone will feign outrage, but Gee didn't say anything that every sports writer and commentator has acknowledged as truth. The B1G isn't going to take schools of low academic standards, Maryland and Rutgers was a TV money grab, Ohio can't lock down Cinncinnatti, etc.
The only controversy is that everyone in the NCAA lives a lie that somehow college athletics are an amateur sport.

And as others have mentioned, LinkedIn has been the only social media platform I can say successfully helped my career. Facebook and Twitter are just too unprofessional by nature.

I'm an engineer and this question made me feel really old.
BACK IN MY DAY (10 years ago) college sponsored career fairs are where I had the best luck picking up internships and making connections with potential employers. I work in the engineering department of a very large utility company now, and can say that 95% of the interns we hire are interviewed at college career fairs, and most of them are offered full time positions once they graduate. So really use to the full extent possible the resources at school. You're paying them, after all, for it.

TIL that some people still think that modern university presidents are anything other than glorified sales people and fund raisers. Wealthy donors love sports as much as the rest of us.

|1 year 29 weeks ago||He's wearing a single ply||
He's wearing a single ply bench press shirt. I'm no gear expert but it looks like a Katana. Depending on how much you train in the gear, you can probably get 150-250 pounds out of one, especially if you are able to touch the bar below your sternum as he did.
It's impressive; no doubt, but the open age single ply bench press record for his weight class is north of 800. Only two people have ever bench pressed 700 pounds without a shirt in competition, Big James Henderson and Scot Mendelson. And Scot has done north of 1000 pounds with a shirt on.

The ABC story was horribly written (which I assume is why they redacted it), but let's get this straight: Of the three people involved, the one who is accused of committing sexual assault is no longer on their team, one is currently on the team but appears to only be listed on the warrant to have his cell phone confiscated for evidence at this time, and the third was a recruit who did not commit to Ohio.

There were a lot of rumors on Ohio boards that Pittman was leaving due to some off the field troubles that hadn't fully surfaced yet. It's pretty easy to connect the dots back to him. Hopefully this isn't true.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||I would not be surprised to||
I would not be surprised to see them start shedding running backs. Hyde, Rod Smith, Brionte Dunn, Warren Ball, and Ezekiel Elliot are all 4/5 star guys now in a offense where the RB is splitting his carries with the QB and the hybrid "Percy Harvin" position. B1G rules probably mean we are unlikely candidates, though. Unless one of them has a family who can pay their way.

The USADA has no oversight of the NBA, NFL, MLB, or NHL. Those sports manage their drug policies and testing internally and can do as they please. They only monitor Olympic sports and international sports that contract with them for WADA approved testing (like cycling). .
