02.May.2016 General Thread

Have at it, doods.

I have some obligations this week and might be away, but if that’s the case I’ll still try to get a new thread up.

I just saw Hallice Cook transferred again. Too bad he didn’t just stay at OSU. Gotta wonder what is going on with that guy. There’s not much good football news out there. This was semi entertaining (as far as o-live goes at least) in seeing their interpretation of who stood out.

Interesting bit is that I thought I wasn’t high on Timmy and Yanni, so I went back and looked at my 2014 recruiting writeup and found this:

Yanni Demogerontas, OL — He actually looks good, but had no good offers. Am I missing something, or did 120 d1 schools? Needs to add 25lbs, ASAP.

So it looks like I did like him. I haven’t seen him since that film in 2014.

I’m not sold on Timmy Hernandez. It’s not that I dislike Hernandez — I’ve never seen him play. He just looks like a possession WR, and this program needs speed/game changers. I see Hernandez as a guy who moves the chains on 3rd downs, which is a great specialty, but not much more unless there’s a broken coverage.

The rest of the guys in the O-live article fit what I saw in their film, so they’re right on schedule as far as I’m concerned. Smith’s quick development is a bit of a surprise. He looked way undersized, and I thought he’d take until junior year. His speed must be making up for his size/strength issue.

In baseball news it’s pretty amazing they’re still ranked #11.

Civil War baseball, and feel free to go off topic.

25.Apr.2016 Valley Football Center Discussion

The discussion in the prior thread was interesting. Let’s take it here and continue. Maybe list all your suggestions and vent your concerns, and I’ll email the thread to Stansbury.

This is the image that has people concerned. Observations are mainly that it looks like a strip mall, the roof is unaesthetic, etc.

Last year I was on the Nebraska forum talking up our new facility upgrades, and honestly if I still posted there I’d be walking away with my tail between my legs after looking at that building. Between this and the outside of Gill OSU has some major problems with aesthetics.

Do looks matter? That’s the debate we’ll have. I think they do when you’re in a recruiting battle, and to say we don’t want guys who care about that comes off as sour grapes.

All that being said, I’m going to wait until the building is complete before judging it, but right now it looks like a mid 80s strip mall.

19.Apr.2016 The Honest Truth about Dishonesty

Somewhat off topic, but I came across this book today and decided to begin reading it. Reason being, I’m curious how the Duck’s and their fans rationalize cheating.

I’ll get back to you in a few days and let you know if it’s any good.

If anyone’s read this book, how does it apply to cheaters/the Ducks/NCAA football as a whole?

Feel free to go off topic.
