Pretty solid pic here
That is a helluva post to like ratio you got
For the skull session (#2 ain't bad):

I know, thinking it may be best to retire now on top.
Just watched this. Kinda like the part when Urban talks up the SEC and how you have to take every opponent seriously then Cowherd reminds him of Purdue and Iowa. Set himself up for that, don't think he was pleased.
My two year old just slammed the toilet seat on my four year old’s junk. The gaggle of 9-10 year old boys currently at my house are re-enacting the blood-curdling scream and claiming they see the tip of his penis randomly laying places around the house.
As much as I love Terry, atta boy Crowley is my #1 over myhitta.
I don't currently envy you. Also have many questions that I don't really want answered.
Good for him though I have doubts about the school that allowed goose to get a degree from
No idea how it actually rates but it’s supposed to be a good law school. They tout that there’s a federal court here
Doesn't change Gun Bunz point about you and your degree
This is my #1...
First 2 episodes are solid, it really gets going later even in a 6 episode/25 min per episode season.
Thanks again for recommendation sir, I hope to catch a couple more tonight, especially now that Astros got rained out
It’s not a bad law school. They keep their class sizes really small to keep their average incoming scores high and job placement high. It’s about half the size of OSU.
There is a federal court in every major city in America. The 6th Circuit Court of Apesls is in Cincinnati though. It hears all appeals from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
It’s hard to believe this guy was taking meaningful snaps last Fall.
Nevada defending Martell harder than Jordan Hall in a current thread. It’s pretty hilarious.
Perfect hill for that asshole to die on.
My wife is obsessed with the ID channel, pretty sure I'll be dead sooner rather than later.
In 2018, Haskins averaged 38 pass attempts a game. As a team, we threw more than 30 attempts every single game.
In 2017, we attempted more than 30 passes in our first 9 games, then didn’t do it again in our last 5 games.
I would love to see us continue to throw the ball more. At the end of 2018, this was a pretty damn good offense.
New Rivals 100 coming out today, expecting Gee Scott to move up again (and maybe Ransom and Phillips, too), while Darrion Henry will likely fall since they had him in the top 50 (I assume Miller will fall some, too). And already preparing for Bijan to get a 5th star and needing to ignore and/or block text messages from certain UT friends :(
New Rivals 100 just came out, Gee did in fact move up and that wanker Bijan is one of the two new 5-stars:
Others of note:
#36 - Gee Scott (up 14)
#41 - Mookie Cooper (up 14)
#61 - Darrion Henry (down 16)
#65 - Clark Phillips (down 6)
#77 - Lathan Ransom (down 7)
#78 - Jaxon S-N (down 6)
#99 - Kourt Williams (up 1)
And OSU has 9 total kids in the updated top 100, while Michigan (aka Meatchicken aka scUM) has 1 (AJ Henning at #87)
Don’t see how anyone could be unhappy about Day’s class.
This tattoo smells like if Steubenville and wapakoneta had a nasty ass baby
AP article making the rounds on BDBL...
Ohio State's Landers shines light on mental health struggles
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State defensive tackle Robert Landers struggles with mental illness, and he doesn't care who knows it.
In fact, he wants more people to be aware of it. The mass shooting in his hometown of Dayton, Ohio, rattled him enough that he decided it was time to speak out.
The gregarious senior known as "BB" said he has suffered bouts of anxiety and depression since his father was shot to death and he was forced to become the man of the house at age 10. It wasn't until he got to Ohio State that he was mature enough to recognize what was happening and to stop regarding it as a weakness.
"God has continued to bless me and put me in certain positions, but it's still an uphill battle on a day-to-day basis," Landers said in a video he tweeted after the Dayton shootings. The video , in which he also offers condolences to the victims' families, has been viewed more than 130,000 times.

For the 22-year-old Landers, the shooting came close to home.
His brother Trey, a University of Dayton basketball player, and three of their cousins were in an Oregon District bar in the early morning hours of Aug. 3 when the shooting started right outside. Ten people were killed, including the shooter, and 27 were injured, though Landers' family members were unhurt.
Given his own past, Landers said he understands survivors and others may have mental health issues to contend with in the aftermath.
"It all, to me, circles back to mental health," he said in the video. "You got so many people in the world today struggling with this disease ... that a lot of people don't want to talk about. It's a real thing, it really does affect people in a negative way, and a lot of people don't know how to handle it."
It's not typical for a 6-foot-1, 285-pound battering ram of a nose tackle to talk about his innermost feelings, fears and weaknesses. That's exactly the point. He hopes airing his struggles will take away some of the stigma and more people who need it will seek help.
"I felt like it was a good time to use my platform and just speak out about it and express how I felt about and pay my condolences to those people," Landers said.
Landers' revelations come at a time that major college football programs have been forced to recognize and confront mental health issues, including how college athletes are holding up under the strain of a challenging academic workload, the pressure of expectations and living public lives via social media.
His coach, Ryan Day, feels so strongly about the issue that he and his wife sponsor a charity for pediatric and adolescent mental wellness at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus. It's personal for Day, too, who was 9 when his own father killed himself.
Day said Ohio State also has added to its counseling staff this year for players who need someone to talk to.
"They understand that we're here, (and) there's no stigma attached to asking for help," Day said. "It's one of those things we have to make sure there is no stigma attached to it. I think our guys are hearing the message, and I'm proud of BB for standing up."
Brain injury issues and the suicides of college football players in recent years have forced the issue more out into the open in general.
More schools are now being proactive about watching players closely and trying to help. For instance, the Pac-12 has committed around $3.5 million per year in research grants for projects to improve the health, general well-being, and safety of student-athletes.
"I said this 10 years ago in a meeting one time in the ACC, and people said, well, they kind of laughed," Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher said.
"I said, listen, guys, mental health is a huge part of what's going on right now," he said. "When you're 18, 20 years old, the kids -- the things they're facing is a hundred times greater than we ever did when we were coming up because of (the media) and the social media and the accessibility and the expectations. It's crazy what these kids go through, and it's a shame sometimes."
Florida coach Dan Mullen noted that fans who watch their heroes on Saturday don't think about what's happening in their lives the rest of the week.
"A lot of guys, it's the first time ever being away from home," Mullen said. "You're growing and finding out about yourself, and a lot of these guys are having to do it under a spotlight with a lot of people watching them and critiquing everything they do."
Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck meets with non-football staffers, including mental health specialists, every Monday for feedback on his players.
"They might say something to them that they'll never say to me," Fleck said. "They might see a body language change that I didn't see. They might hear something that was said that I didn't hear. They might know about a girlfriend breakup. They might know about a mom having a sickness that they don't want anybody else to know for some particular reason."
For Ohio State's Landers, the grind of football practice with his teammates serves as a release, a chance to put aside all the pressures and the dark thoughts that sneak in sometimes.
"The best way I've learned to deal with this issue and this disease," he said, "is surrounding myself with the best possible people I could surround myself (with)."

Remember Trey McDonalds mixtape of him missing FTs?? LMBO
Fickell going hard at Harbaugh was enjoyable.
Charles, post a link
Meechie Johnson is a first ballot hall of famer porn pseudonym.
Haha, i saw that somewhere on the interweb earlier sir, but disregarded it due to not having an Athletic subscription
Anyone with an Athletic subscription?
Tom Mars is now working for the NCAA. He quit representing athletes.
Does Tom Mars have a subscription to The Athletic and can post the article for me?
I can only offer you what I have.
Seems like a really good "get". Big time scorer and probably a commutable Spartans offer. Holtmann seems to really trying to lock in the in-state players that he wants before they seriously consider elsewhere.

On the heels of the NCAA denying Hudson a waiver for immediate eligibility after the former Michigan football player transferred to Cincinnati last year, Cincinnati head coach James Fickell called out Jim Harbaugh and Michigan for not supporting Hudson's waiver.
Hudson, an offensive lineman, was appealing for immediate eligibility on the grounds of mental health issues he said he experienced during his two seasons at Michigan. The NCAA denied his original waiver and an ensuing appeal, and Fickell, in recent comments to The Athletic, said Michigan is mostly to blame.
“Here’s what I believe in the whole waiver process: the number one, most important thing, and all the power, comes from the school that a kid is leaving. No matter what. (Michigan) didn’t back the waiver. They can say what they want to say, but the only thing they said that was positive was that if the NCAA chooses to make (Hudson) eligible, then they would accept it — that they didn’t have an angle. They are just trying to cover their ****. And I’m really, completely disappointed in it.
“They can say they didn’t undermine it, but they didn’t work to help the kid out.”
Fickell, a former player and coach at Ohio State who took over at Cincinnati in 2017, said he got a "cold" response from Harbaugh when he called him in the offseason to ask whether he would back Hudson's waiver. In contrast, said Fickell, when Cincinnati landed transfers from Alabama and Ohio State this offseason, both Nick Saban and Ryan Day helped their former players gain immediate eligibility.
“I called him to say that I don’t know what’s going on with all these waivers, but I know James is here,” Fickell said. “Are you guys going to be vindictive against him, or do you want to help this kid? ...
“All (Harbaugh) said to me was, ‘I’m not going to lie. I’m not going to lie. And I don’t know why we’re talking.’ It was really cold. I talked to Nick Saban because we have a transfer from Alabama. I talked to Ryan Day because we have a kid from Ohio State. We have a kid from Michigan, so I wanted to reach out, not to ask about the kid, but acknowledging that this kid has some issues and are you willing to help him? Or what are you willing to do? And it was pretty cold.”
The situation seemed to escalate when Michigan, in a response to Hudson's second waiver request, brought to the NCAA a story of Hudson leaving a liquor store near campus with a "bag of goods," Hudson's mother told The Athletic. She said the story was entirely false.
Fickell blasted Michigan for coming after a player who chose to transfer.
“It’s like a junior-high relationship: ‘You broke up with me, so I’m going to tell everybody that you did this, this and this.’ What grown-up does that?” Fickell said. “They responded with a junior-high comeback. I was shocked. Shocked. That if somebody said something about you, that you would then respond back by trying to bash a 19-year-old on things that were hearsay?
“It sounds a little bit like ‘A Few Good Men.’ Yeah, he was on the first flight out the next morning. That’s why I’m pissed and I want to say something. For you to get in a junior-high battle and say things about a kid, whether you believe him or not, you’re taking shots a kid who is struggling. And who am I to say how much? But he’s struggling, and to say that, it hurt the kid. Big time. It was hard. I know a lot of this stuff should be done behind closed doors, and I’m not calling people out. But when they took a shot at the kid, it was really disappointing. Really disappointing.”
According to The Athletic, Hudson's waiver was denied by the NCAA because a) University of Cincinnati is not within 100 miles of his hometown, and b) there was no documentation of the mental health issues he said he experienced at Michigan. Hudson will be eligible to play again in 2020.
While Fickell also expressed frustration with the NCAA for its handling of the case, he reiterated Michigan set the tone.
“All the power is in the hands of the school a player is leaving. If they want to help, they can help them become eligible,” he said.
Sean Magee, Michigan's director of player personnel and administration for football, denied Harbaugh or UM did anything to undermine Hudson's waiver.
“It’s simply not true,” he said. “This had nothing to do with James as an individual, but again, we weren’t putting ourselves in position over the NCAA to judge who gets a waiver or not. If you look around the country and reasons why stories like this are so prevalent, the NCAA hasn’t shown to this point what the direct precedent is. If people are looking for precedence, you aren’t going to find it.”
Mike Farrell doesn't think Gee catches the ball consistently
Gee Scott Jr.
Ohio State – This is such a loaded wide receiver class that a guy like Scott gets overshadowed sometimes despite being dominant. The concern? Consistency with his hands and the level of competition he’s dominating in the Northwest. But he’s creeping closer to that fifth star and when guys like
are tweeting out he should be a five-star, he’s got some impressive backers.
Scrolling down basketball player rankings and fucking hell some of these kids are skinny. 6'11 180; eat some damn food, kid.
MSU can’t have wanted him much if they wanted him to commute. Seems like he’d struggle to make it to classes and practice
Kid needs to shut his mouth....reminds me of the Michigan moron recruits over the last decade.
I totally agree sir. And kinda surprised to see 11W share this to be honest. It was kinda making the rounds last night or the night before on MagicBuc's twitter feed via an interview with the Dean and thought it would be quickly forgotten about.
