    Man, who knew vol fans were so friggin' neurotic? I guess going 28-34, making only two bowls, and going through four coaches (and THREE disastrous searches) in five years will mess with your psyche...

    yep, especially since they lost out to the coach who put them in that position....

    Yeah, I mean some of these people are really crazy...like ped aggy loopy. Best part, is some don't even seem to know what position he plays, yet are still furious. :lol:

  4. If I'm a returning starter in the secondary my motor just went into over drive. I start taking my cover pills and my tackling shots like a good kid. If i'm injured i'm taping an aspirin to it.

    This secondary class is stacked IMO. By stacked I mean there are a lot of guys we might be calling The Next...as in The Next name your favorite Buckeye secondary player. I have to believe that the margin for error has just decreased significantly. If you think missing tackles trying to make a big hit this season will get it done then you are probably mistaken. Vonn Bell can do both successfully..at the same time.

    I remember watching that All Star game where VH III won the MVP. While he did enough to deserve it, I remember thinking that he only got that opportunity because Vonn so decisively declared his side of the field closed for business early and often.

    There are some players whose film just shows an elite player. Vonn has one of those films. It's just so dang obvious. I will always remember my reaction to his signing day announcement, the jumping up and down, pounding my fist on the table and letting loose of some choice vocabulary. This entire class is very special but for some reason watching his live announcement was just in it's own category. It erased so many signing day demons. It signaled our arrival on the national recruiting scene more than ever before. Most importantly though it signaled tOSU sticking a flag in the ground and saying......bring it. Thank you for that Mr. Bell. I really needed it.

    It takes a mature kid to go with your head over your heart at that age. This kid has a chance to be really special if he works hard. You can tell from his offensive highlights he's also great once he gets the ball in his hands. I think he'll be the leader of the secondary in a couple years. Would love to see him be an Ed Reed type of leader for this defense in the years to come.

    Maybe because Reed was one heck of a player.

    Thug U? Yes. Ratbird? Yes.

    One of the greatest to play the position and as pointed out -
    A darn fine professional in the sense of the word.

    If Bell is even half as good it will be a sight to see.

    Is that a serious question? Why wouldn't I wish him to be like Ed Reed?
