08/04/2013 - 12:18am I'm just not following the OP

I'm just not following the OP here, lol.  You're implying that people who frequent this board (ie students, people on work breaks, or people who come home from work and check it out in the evenings), have some kind of valuable commentary on national HS football recruits and current conference/national offensive and defensive schemes?  Like the people who come here and look at Rivals or look at film from games last year in their free time have more ability to dissect that information than the people who were hired (for millions of dollars) to do that full time, year round, and have been doing it exclusively for decades? 

Does not compute.

07/31/2013 - 7:17pm 2015, right?  And it's....

2015, right?  And it's.... July of 2013?  I'm not worried about who his #1 is right now.  "There is time" is an understatement and this staff has everything in the world going for it.

Moving on for now.

07/31/2013 - 12:28pm Ya I gotcha and agree the OP

Ya I gotcha and agree the OP quotes were weak. 

07/31/2013 - 12:10pm The new divisions take hold

The new divisions take hold in 2014 and all teams were set up from thereon out, but everything until 2014 was left to play out as it has already been scheduled.  They came to AA last year and we just happened to be going to EL this year so this is how the 2013/2014 years happened to play out.

07/31/2013 - 12:03pm Same.  He literally explained

Same.  He literally explained what a football field is.  To take that personally or as some kind of swipe is weird.

07/31/2013 - 12:00pm Well, this is awkward.  
 

Well, this is awkward.  

 

07/25/2013 - 11:40pm I think that we're one of

I think that we're one of very few fanbases in college football that could pull something like that off.

07/25/2013 - 11:38pm Really?  I think I would

Really?  I think I would agree if they were just rectangle-shaped and flat in front, but I think the way they are angled makes them look great.  The bricking around the outside looks better than I thought it would and I think the (angled) boxes are a great way to "close in" the stadium when you see it from inside.

07/25/2013 - 11:35pm I think I understood bother

I think I understood both arguments back then so I was kind of conflicted.  I appreciated the tradition but I like new, flashy things too.  I had confidence that IF the administration decided to build it, it would look great and I think it turned out absolutely great.

07/24/2013 - 10:10pm Huh.  Wonder what school that

Huh.  Wonder what school that shirt belongs to.

07/22/2013 - 12:42am Little early for that kind of

Little early for that kind of coverage, no?  It's one thing for an OSU fan site or a UM fan site to discuss it but they'd be really, really liable putting stuff like that over the airwaves.  Not too many people are awake and drooling for that kind of coverage at 11pm, either.  And if a news conference is coming so early tomorrow morning then just wait until it's either confirmed or tease it with the early morning show because now you have a meeting confirmed by the school and that's better to report than jumping right to "this happened and involved these people".

 

I can't fault them for covering their own behind so far.

07/21/2013 - 6:41pm Good.

He is the good kind of runner.

07/17/2013 - 5:42pm SEVEN YEARS?? Man I feel old

SEVEN YEARS?? Man I feel old all of a sudden.

07/17/2013 - 12:13pm OP sounds good and I'm

OP sounds good and I'm thinking a more mobile QB would only help the issue.

07/12/2013 - 10:42pm Really like most of it,

Really like most of it, really hate some of it.

07/08/2013 - 6:56pm No. ****.

No. ****.

07/08/2013 - 1:33am Hope you find something fun,

Hope you find something fun, OP.  Have a nice, safe trip.

07/07/2013 - 7:52pm Hey I'll still call it a

Hey I'll still call it a victory if it means he is coming back here.

07/07/2013 - 7:51pm Lemme say it like this:
1)

Lemme say it like this:

1) Yes, you clearly do mean to pile on, OP.  That's why you started a new thread about this.

 

2) I'm not sure what "even NYT" means exactly.  They haven't defended him, have they?  They aren't really loyal to him, are they?  So I don't know why any more weight than usual is put into their opinion than anyone elses.

 

3) I'm just a grumpy coot tired of parroting this topic.  We all know it.  We all knew it before he was hired at OSU. 

 

4)  "you're", not "your".

07/03/2013 - 6:53pm HS performances, even films

HS performances, even films of years or entire HS careers, can be pretty subjective.  Remember you're seeing highlights, not every snap of every game.  You have to keep a lot of things in mind like the level of competition and the position as used by that coach and team (ie blocking schemes and offensive/defensive sets.  Drawing the line between grooming for their college desire vs "you're a body and I want you to stand there and rush the QB every play" types of coaching). 

 

07/02/2013 - 10:27pm I'm confused by the OSU and

sorry, double post.  neg away. 

07/02/2013 - 10:27pm I'm confused by the OSU and

I'm confused by the OSU and Nebraska picks.  Is he alleging they play in the B1G Title game, Nebraska loses, but still gets picked to a BCS game? 

Not sure what to think because that makes the most sense but we've seen previous game losers get bumped down a bowl or two for losing, so I'm just wondering what justifies picking current or future shortcomers into BCS games when it hasn't happened before.  Usually #3 steps into that role, right?  If that's the case, then who does he have playing OSU in the B1G Title game or did he not pick it?  I don't want to laugh at Staee getting shafted by life again before I have the facts.

07/02/2013 - 10:12pm I imagine nothing but good

I imagine nothing but good things.  Maybe not an active, amazingly social relationship, but I'd expect most players to feel comfortable if they ever wanted to call or reach back out to them.

06/30/2013 - 1:08pm I mean, I guess there is

I mean, I guess there is always a chance.

06/29/2013 - 12:33am Worst idea ever, sure, but it

Worst idea ever, sure, but it would also be hilarious.

06/28/2013 - 7:45pm Dude.  You asked about how to

Dude.  You asked about how to find them cheaper ("in that $95 range") and someone said you're not finding them cheaper.  Your question is essentially what is on the mind of every single UM football fan in the world.   The school is trying to match what the secondary market does and the secondary market is doing what they do because of demand.  A staple game, demand is always up, prices will always be high.  Personally, I think it is silly to assume you could get them through either school because those are the highest of high demands and the schools aren't interested in "only" getting $95 for them anymore. 

Sucks but that's just how sports are nowadays.  The internet and the streets of AA will be full of people looking for the best deal possible.

06/21/2013 - 5:19pm Ok, whenever I look at that

Ok, whenever I look at that little ship I hear the Old Spice whistel in my head.  Sorry.

06/19/2013 - 8:22pm Totally legit.  Has to

Totally legit.  Has to be.

I'm sure they're acting completely ethical too, lest they be the first to stain the SEC's current reputation.

06/15/2013 - 1:13pm Stories like this make me

Stories like this make me feel conflicted.  On the one hand, it seems clear the kid has been paid.  On the other hand, he's a relative nobody (localized college interest.  Highly rated, yes, but he is not a Dashawn Hand or Terrelle Pryor type recruit) so it's like, the idea that soooooo many other kids could be getting better benefits, across the nation, every year, and they're alllll doing such a good job of keeping their mouths shut about it.. I just don't buy it.  It's stunning how kids can be so stupid yet allegedly they're so smart and sneaky at the same time.

06/12/2013 - 9:37pm .... we haven't had a drop

.... we haven't had a drop since about 15 minutes after my above post.  I chose to run outside in the only, what, 10 minutes of rain we've had all night. 

 

I'm an idiot.

06/12/2013 - 9:35pm I guess it's a good problem

I guess it's a good problem to have.

06/12/2013 - 6:05pm Only school out of those

Only school out of those other four (including the two that "could" get visits) that concerns me is Alabama, and that didn't concern me until the rumblings that have just recently been coming out.  Until last week, I would have considered this a lock (basically us and then putting a couple others out there to make it feel like a contest) but now I see it as maybe 75% us, 25% Alabama.

Oh. 

COOL STORY B...

 

 

Oh.  =(

 

 

06/12/2013 - 6:04pm Others beat me to the punch

Others beat me to the punch but ya, FF was never really the issue.  The headliners at each regional and location make big differences in the regional attendances.  FF has always done well with ticket sales (ESPECIALLY when big name programs and rabid fanbases are a part of it, like us and Kentucky).

06/12/2013 - 6:00pm Oh and thanks OP.  I just ran

Oh and thanks OP.  I just ran outside to put our deck chairs and grill in the garage (better safe than sorry).  I ran about 100 feet and got completely soaked.  Had to towel off inside.

06/12/2013 - 6:00pm Ha.  We JUST had sod laid in

Ha.  We JUST had sod laid in front of house this morning/afternoon.  The guys were gone when I got home around 5:30, but I'm assuming/hoping rain is good for it and this worked out beautifully.

06/11/2013 - 9:47pm Old peeps.

Old peeps.

06/09/2013 - 5:10pm Ah, just looked him up and I

Ah, just looked him up and I guess it's "Durkin".  Whoops.  Would hate to imagine that turns into a joke for awhile...  :)

06/09/2013 - 10:48am Didn't MSU get Durka Durka?

Didn't MSU get Durka Durka?

 

Not that I understand why they would turn down a highly touted 4 star, but then again, I don't understand many of the things they do.

05/31/2013 - 8:21pm Best thing I've heard

Best thing I've heard today. 

I thought the line of thought was he was mad at Babcock and bailing back to Russia to play.  If we have a chance at getting him back, I'm all over it.  Love his game.

05/27/2013 - 7:10pm We're dealing strictly in

We're dealing strictly in hypotheticals and you're painting up a very specific picture in which everything works out (up to and including a mNC victory).  You can't really hold an argument like that against me.

05/27/2013 - 6:42pm Honestly, no.
It's burning a

Honestly, no.

It's burning a redshirt unncessarily.  We all think he has sky-high potential, I'm not sending him in for one drive at the cost of an entire future season.  Not to mention if we have a backup with ANY college experience whatsoever, he will have a leg up on Morris. 

Shane's time will definitely come but I just can't imagine a situation where that time is this fall.  Give him at least one year to learn and go from there.  He could be great.

05/27/2013 - 11:56am I have to think between the

I have to think between the "conditional offers" and the chatting between coaching staffs (ours and the high school's), they have a good idea that a kid is going to make it.

05/27/2013 - 11:53am Pff. Let them.
 
It'll all be

Pff. Let them.

 

It'll all be settled on the field.

05/27/2013 - 10:24am Can't convince me that

Can't convince me that burning his RS this year for any reason is a good idea.  DG will be here another year regardless and all indications are that he is the QB with the most experience, gives us the best shot to win, and (right now) has the highest ceiling at the position.  He has to be used until he graduates which means Shane should be sitting and waiting, practicing, learning, and come out guns blazing down the road.

05/26/2013 - 4:39pm Heh, I am both surprised and

Heh, I am both surprised and bummed that multiple people beat me to making a "brazzers" joke.

05/26/2013 - 4:38pm Just awesome.

Just awesome.

05/26/2013 - 11:04am It was completely bizarre if

It was completely bizarre if nothing else. 

 

Said he was leaving for health reasons, came back, said he was leaving for family reasons, took a job with ESPN (traveling all season long and not being with his family), then took the job at OSU.

 

I don't think I've seen anything like that.  Just the scrambling for an excuse, publicly, to gtfo.

05/26/2013 - 1:54am Wow.  Nice pic.

Wow.  Nice pic.

05/25/2013 - 11:31pm So if the rumors are true, I

So if the rumors are true, I guess you could say when it comes to test-taking he is a little bit.... chicken?
