Mostly agree. Only real angle is why the hell would urban go to Florida in this situation with players during a game week. There is smoke there but the story fails to connect the dots. With the track record of all parties — OSU, dad, mom — sussing our the truth is a fool’s errand and this article comes off a little foolish without harder evidence. 

11/07/2018 - 7:48am I have no knowledge, but I…

I have no knowledge, but I imagine no two cases are the same. That being said, if I had to guess I would say that it’s just difficult to stay motivated in an environment where your coaches do not think you are performing at a level needed to move up the depth chart.  just the freedom of not having to go through grueling practices that don’t seem to lead to anything may be incentive enough. The parallel in the corporate world is someone choosing to leave a company when they get passed up for a promotion by a peer. You could stay, but sometimes pride and motivation suffer and the best thing to do is cut your losses and move on.

This is properly applied spirit of the rule. Who cares is the proper response. As an aside, mcsorely always comes off well in his interviews and how he carries himself in games. Competitive, fighter, leader. Glad he’s moving on and it’s a shame he had to be coached by franklin. 

11/04/2018 - 7:43pm Comparing this D to the 1997…

Comparing this D to the 1997 D is one of those things fans will do, but it’s impossible to do so based on stats given the way the game has evolved in 21 years. That team only allowed 114 points all year, but it was a different game then. I can go only by the eye test given that was my senior year.  For me, memory and nostalgia tilts it in favor of that Championship team. Fun debate to have with no right answer.

double post. In honor of Franklins double timeout fiasco.

28-24 good guys

its not going to be pretty, with too many points left on the field, and a few big plays by PSU, but the team will get it done.

I feel like anyone with a name like Kalen DeLoach should just autoenroll at LSU or other Mississippi River delta school.

$2.4mm last year and $5mm yesterday.

As a father of a 4 year old and twin 3 year olds, I hear you. 

10/31/2018 - 8:26pm 1. 42 yr old male

2. Live?…

1. 42 yr old male

2. Live? About 1 quarter of each game throughout the season. 3 young kids dictate my schedule. On DVR, it’s basically 3x the number of wins. I won’t watch the losses and I’ll watch the wins three times, usually Saturday night, Sunday night, and Monday night after kids go to bed. 

3. Cool isn’t the word I would use. She’s resigned herself to the fact that she married a flawed man who has just enough endearing qualities to keep.

Love the speed off the snap and the low pad level. Definitely some great raw skills  to shape into steel. 

That WAS a cheap shot by the Grand Haven guy. Should be ejected for that garbage... or get a PWO offer from Sparty.

You’re really good at this.

He may just have a micropenis. 

10/30/2018 - 3:31pm Replace the word cyst or…

Replace the word cyst or words referring to the cyst with the word conscience in that article and the story makes a lot more sense. Couple examples:

Meyer has been peppered with questions about his health and future in coaching. He said the cause of the discomfort links back to a conscience in his brain, which has led to severe headaches at times in his career...

...“The past four years, we’ve been working closely with coach Meyer to monitor and manage the symptoms that have risen from his enlarged conscience ,” said Dr. Andrew Thomas, Meyer’s personal physician and the chief clinical officer at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center. “This includes aggressive headaches, which have particularly flared up the past two years...”

...The most visible manifestation of this came during that Indiana game. Meyer went down on one knee and was attended to by both a team athletic trainer and a team doctor because of a headache tied to the conscience.

now the article is more believable.

 

10/30/2018 - 11:23am I agree with the sentiment…

I agree with the sentiment. I find the rankings at this stage to be about as informative and meaningful as astrology. It’s irrelevant. But a lot of people read their horoscopes and there is money to be made in the spectacle so here we are. 

10/28/2018 - 11:01am Great catch. Dummy typed…

Great catch. Dummy typed that whole thing out. Didn’t even use the copy paste function. 

10/27/2018 - 12:03pm The politics of victimhood…

The politics of victimhood is powerful and absolutely corrosive to our society. 

10/26/2018 - 12:21pm I’ll go a different route…

I’ll go a different route and say Soccer.  It’s more popular than the NHL, will likely overtake MLB in the next 5-10 years. 

MLS quality is still second or third tier, but has improved considerably. Sounders soccer is must watch for our household and affordability of games make it easier to develop a fan base. And game atmosphere is better than anything else in the US except for Michigan hockey. 

 

Commence the soccer haters replies/downvotes. 

10/25/2018 - 6:17pm I’d also add that the story…

I’d also add that the story does not end well for Brennus (in at least some versions of the history).  He barely made it out of the city before he was vanquished by the Roman reinforcements. So, while cool, If you play the analogy out, the romans got the better of it. I’d even say that Brennus’s pride led to his fall. So, I’d prefer to be the romans in this example. “Not by gold, but by iron, is the nation to be recovered.”

10/24/2018 - 9:59pm So you’re are saying he’s…

So you’re are saying he’s the moonlight graham of the nba? 

10/24/2018 - 11:31am To be completely accurate…

To be completely accurate his full name was Jolton Drevno O’Peters.

This just made him my favorite player two years prior to him even being on campus. 

10/23/2018 - 10:03am Agreed. This is the same…

Agreed. This is the same brush it under the rug bullshit harbaugh called out yesterday. 

10/22/2018 - 8:10pm Some people just have a way…

Some people just have a way of speaking in tone and choice of words that make them great motivators. I’d run through a brick wall for don brown. Dude is special. 

10/21/2018 - 10:19am Great video. I’m surprised…

Great video. I’m surprised there are not more shots given the numbers of cameramen around the walk. I wonder how many of those are MSU camera crew vs Fox, meaning all video evidence will be conveniently deleted. 

10/21/2018 - 12:00am Yeah. That’s a good word for…

Yeah. That’s a good word for it. I don’t know why Brian bothers with  Twitter for anything other than promoting the website and related products. 

10/20/2018 - 6:00pm Well, I did buy this a…

Well, I did buy this a couple years back. Happy to sell it to a disgruntled MSU fan for the right price.

Assuming you were being figurative. Have you never heard of Radiohead? Other ones I understand, but that one seems pretty mainstream. 

10/15/2018 - 12:52am Agree, except for one fine…

Agree, except for one fine point. The NCAA oversight is not incompetent. It is intensional and corrupt. It is an effective marketing wing to maintain the myth of the student athlete in revenue sports. There are exceptions, but these are driven by schools and individuals. The system itself is built to profit a small subset of individuals. 

10/14/2018 - 10:17am Evil doesn’t win, because…

Evil doesn’t win, because winners write the history books. And rarely has a side in any contest viewed their cause as the immoral one. 

10/08/2018 - 11:46pm I don’t care for all of your…

I don’t care for all of your hot takes, and I actually like most of you people. I don’t like this douche, and couldnt care less to hear his bitching and whining. 

10/05/2018 - 12:46pm That OT screen was…

That OT screen was outrageous. Given it was a backwards pass, I thought he was going to pass it downfield, as well. Then he starts motoring down the field. Kid has light feet. 

10/03/2018 - 3:10pm While I’ve always felt he…

While I’ve always felt he looked a little stiff for a Viper position, I think some people are being unduly critical here because they are used to watching highlights vs game reels. I guarantee every prospect will look less impressive with this format (except maybe Fournette). 

10/02/2018 - 12:00pm I took it slightly…

I took it slightly differently (and cynically). I thought it was a good encapsulation of our struggles in games early. We start out without much confidence and get better as the game goes on. I wish, instead, we would say on Monday, "This opponent has a lot of flaws. I see them. We are going to exploit them. We are going to grind them into the ground until their lamentations are choked by sod and earth." That would be a nice change of pace.  

10/01/2018 - 2:20pm My advice is for him to stop…

My advice is for him to stop running full speed into chase winovich, who is coming full speed from the other direction.

Wendy’s is killing it. Here is another good one.

Well, you do live in Columbus which has to handicap you a little in the joy department. 

09/21/2018 - 1:19pm 27-21. Michigan.  Fan mood…

27-21. Michigan.  Fan mood remains cantankerous. All snowflake threads except special teams will be unpleasant. 1/3 of the season will be over and very little joy will have been had. We will be the crankiest 3-1 fan base in the country. 

09/20/2018 - 12:02pm Still in September

Still in September

Too soon for Frost on the field

Chase the Huskers off.

Good to know the Oklahoma high school athletic association allows missiles to participate in sports. Hope the big ten has similar eligibility standards. 

09/12/2018 - 2:22pm Did they breakout how many…

Did they breakout how many of those under center runs were in 2nd and short or 3rd and short situations? Or how many came in late game/late half situations? 

09/11/2018 - 4:17pm Such a lazy take. You see it…

Such a lazy take. You see it all the time with older generations. Saying something is unamerican is basically saying, “this is different than I’m used to, and I want it to be the way it used to be.” This is a loser’s mentality, holding on to stasis vs being innovative and trying to find new ways to succeed. It turns out, in my estimation, that the ones being unamerican are those who want to freeze innovation. Such is the irony with these statements. Also worth noting, it’s not an American phenomenon. It’s generational  and global and more about a willingness to embrace change or to be a catalyst for change. 

09/10/2018 - 8:19pm Thank you. Again, not a…

Thank you. Again, not a strong opinion, but it sounds like the courts agreed on the property clause, but disagreed on what constitutes due process and arbitrary. Is direct cross examination a requirement for due process? 

09/10/2018 - 7:24pm Shocking, but I don’t have a…

I don’t have a strong opinion on this because it is nuanced and people who spend a lot more time thinking about these things should define the policy that best promotes positive outcomes. 

I’m just curious among our legal experts here, why does a court have authority to say whether a university’s mechanism for this is legal? Is the grounds based on a person not being given due process? If so, what specific law or precedent is being cited? Is the concept of having the right to face an accuser in a direct cross examination something that is codified in due process? Just trying to understand the legal basis for the ruling vs the common sense rationale. 

09/06/2018 - 1:55pm 31-13.

 

Offensive line…

31-13.

 

Offensive line struggles again, raising alarm level from 7.5 to 9.5. Even the optimistic bunch will seek room alongside me in my bomb shelter. We will console one another the rest of the year and hope senselessly that those three posters who keep saying, “but it’s only one or two mistakes. Once they correct those, we’ll be fine,” are right. Though we know they are Sisyphusian fools who will be crushed yet again and die an ignominious death. 

09/06/2018 - 12:40pm Just echoing other posters…

Just echoing other posters. These are great and glad to see them back. I always have difficulty seeing what Brian sees from his UFR stills and just take his word for it. The videos, slow motion, and visual effects help a ton on a subset of plays. 

08/30/2018 - 10:27am Pick six that will lead me…

Pick six that will lead me to question why I invest so much emotional energy into a game played by strangers thousands of miles away. I will pass through the stages of grief with a sad familiarity and a resolve that I’ll never let it happen again, though deep inside I know I’m not fooling anybody.

Actually shrooming tonight. Semi annual tradition with the wife. We’ve been up on the rooftop deck giggling for a couple hours. Going through a little lull now. Not sure why I’m here.
