at ILB? Is that right?
|5 years 46 weeks ago||Meyers leave of absence||
is actually just going to be him taking 3 or 4 months off in the summer. There is not a chance he isnt back on the sideline for their first game next year.
My dad and I lovingly joke that Joe Pa will die on the sideline during a Penn State game one year (honestly, its the only way for him to go out). Well, now I believe in all seriousness that Meyer will actually drop dead on the sideline during a Gator game.
|5 years 48 weeks ago||I would be shocked if anyone||
I would be shocked if anyone but Meyer is coaching the Gators for their season opener next year. I also agree with the sentiment expressed earlier about Meyer being a dick on the field and with the media. Florida coaches are the new Brett Favre. I'm leaving the university... for a day.
Also, some of the quotes his daughters gave the media were beyond depressing. Would be interesting to get quotes from them today. I'm torn as to whether this is sad or frustrating.
|5 years 49 weeks ago||Pretty Much||
Yeah. I can only find four avatar sized pictures on Mike D's picture pages, there are no videos of it on Youtube, the only video is a forty minute torrent which I'm hoping someone will post screencaps of because I'm legitimately interested to know the quality of the footage. This thread has been up for a day and change and still no one has posted multiple quality pictures or streaming videos. People have yet to disprove my point.
Everybody keeps saying it was covered heavily but can't post pictures or video links to support their stance. I'm open to being wrong, and if I am then so be it, but getting four or five people to say that it was heavily covered then not be able to show proof doesn't make it true. The fact that there is nobody posting pictures or posting links to videos helps to prove MY point. I can find more copies of Budd Dwyer killing himself than I can of Woodson winning the Heisman. Just sayin.
|5 years 49 weeks ago||Challenge||
Find the best quality picture and video possible from that night. Then find a second quality picture and video. It's tougher than everybody thinks. For being 1997, there is hardly media out there for the first and only defensive player to ever win the Heisman. Even the video ESPN always shows during the Heisman hype sequences are sketchy.
|5 years 49 weeks ago||In Woodson's day there were||
In Woodson's day there were not even close to a million TV cameras anywhere near the Heisman presentation. I'm pretty sure the award was presented in a rotary club with maybe 100 people in the room. It was nowhere near the event it is today.

Let me take my balls out of your mouth, I couldn't understand you.
Oh there we go, you giving up already? Well thanks for the challenge, hope we can play again sometime soon.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Would you expect a four-year||
Would you expect a four-year starter in any school to not set records? It's damn near a given that a four-year starter will set records, especially at a school such as Kentucky, which as we know has produced outstanding QB talent... never (lol, Tim Couch).
And wow, a 57% completion rate as a senior. Hold on boys, he is coming for the Heisman. A freshman should be throwing 57%, not a four-year starter. 2nd team All-SEC where the only decent starting QB at the time was Eli Manning (lol, Jason Campbell). That's the equivalent of saying that Mike Williams is 2nd team All-Michigan safety behind Kovacs. What an honor.
What are the NCAA records he holds? Turnovers during a career? Most interceptions in a game? I don't know, but find out what they are for me, I would honestly be interested to know, but I'm willing to bet they are not important.
Seriously, you cannot make the argument that Lorenzen didnt suck. He went undrafted for a reason, he was a third-stringer for a reason, he threw four career passes in the NFL for a reason, he was on an AFL practice squad for a reason. Lorenzen sucked at Kentucky, he sucked in the pros, but I'm sure he is good at whatever he is doing now.
You said it yourself, "he latched on to a pro team for several years". LOL, yes, he certainly did latch didnt he. And why the hell would I be a Kentucky fan, does Kentucky even have fans? Your argument that he was a good QB at any point is his career is laughable at best, and your "stats" just go to prove it.
Thanks for playing Magnus, now go fuck yourself.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Yes, he was a third-stringer in the NFL.||
With a career total of 4 completions, 28 passing yards, and 2 rushing yards in a grand total of 4 seasons. Watch out for him! And, no he is not better than I give him credit for. He sucked at Kentucky and he never broke the two-deep in the NFL, I think I'm giving him the credit he deserves. He is way more famous for being a fat-ass left handed quarterback than for anything he ever did on the field. People think he is good because they recognize the name, not because he has any real talent.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Lorenzen also sucked balls.||
So maybe we should not think of him as hefty-lefty with speed and instead think of someone talented to compare him to. Its like saying JT Turner is Johnny Sears with better hips.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Nice idea for a thread||
but we played this game last week:

his lane change and forcing other drivers into the wall. Then yelling at NASCAR officials for penalizing him after speeding through pit lane repeatedly.
|6 years 3 weeks ago||I'm not sure||
that asking for people to list "realistic" targets and then listing your first two candidates as "longshot" and "another longshot" makes sense. Realistic and longshot would be on opposite ends of the hopeful spectrum.
Christian is the only one from the above list (wing's list) that I think we actually land. After that, Josh Furman comes to mind as does Aramide Olaniyan. I think we have legit chances with both of those young men. After that, who knows.

that the next high level draft pick on the roster behind Graham is Ortmann. Seriously? No love for Warren? Koger, Molk, and Martin are all far more likely to be high-level draft picks than is Ortmann.
|6 years 3 weeks ago||At the end of the day||
Its amazing that we are all fans of the same team.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||Damn||
Ohio State has 8 DE recruits between 3 classes, 2 of which are still ongoing (10, 11). They recruit DE like we recruit WR.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||I said it last year||
Osgood's career has been an overachievement due largely to the caliber of players surrounding him during his time in Detroit. He is, in my opinion a better than average goalie, but nothing more. Of course he has had his moments and streaks where he has looked outstanding, but I've never been convinced that he is great.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||The problem with Sheridan||
playing is that it will eventually be the Sheridan we know playing. It may not be in the first quarter or the second, but at some point it will be the same Sheridan we all know. The Minnesota game was the exception to the rule, Sheridan cannot and should not see significant playing time. Its way easier to take mistakes by true freshmen who are at least getting the experience than someone who cannot lead the team any farther than they could.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||Woodson||
Also had a pick for Green Bay today. Always nice to see our guys doing well in the NFL.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||On a related note||
Anyone living in the Pittsburgh/Western Pennsylvania area can watch the Penn Hills vs Fox Chapel game on FSN right now. Good chance to see Cullen before he hopefully commits.

A quote from the responses:
"They should have play Applachian State woops they did and their standings went from #1 to whatever. They also lost to APP STATE. Well!!! Next time pick a harder team.. just imagine if delelware would have beat them."
Yes, imagine if delelware had beaten us. Florida fans always come out in droves when there is a Michigan story.

2.5 - Over/under on sure fire dropped interceptions. He already has two drops after they fluttered softly into gloved hands. I say he drops one more.
Edit: in addition to the two dropped interceptions, he has three personal fouls. Go Bulls!
|6 years 6 weeks ago||Daniels||
has got to learn to settle for 5-6 yard completions, he just waits out the long ball and then ends up scrambling every play and whipping it in the general direction of a Bull. Take a note from Peyton Manning and be happy with short but important completions.
|6 years 6 weeks ago||Hart||
Hart is definitely the Ricardo Miller/Marvin Robinson as far as recruits go next year. Young man with long-term interest in the program, already beloved by fans, and despite whatever his rankings end up being all of us will be exceptionally happy to have him.
Can't wait until he (hopefully) commits.
|6 years 6 weeks ago||Great article||
Thanks for posting, always nice to be reminded that its more than just a game.
|6 years 6 weeks ago||On the subject...||
I remember Carson Butler doing the cabbage patch at the end of a game in 2007 as well. Other than the fact that we won, I can't remember which game it was.
