    Tell your roommate that it is kind of like golf. You have to be good enough to earn the right to get mad/salty.

    Once you get that sense of perspective and accept your position in the game, your enjoyment of it will increase a great deal.

    Now, should Thad Matta flip a recruit on them and make a FF run while they get bounced early, then by all means let the salty tears and anger flow.

    Great advice. It's advice that I give and is still sometimes hard to follow. I tell people all the time, "Golf is a great game and it's fun. All you have to do is accept the fact that you most likely suck at it before you hit the course. Have fun and try to get better. Don't be mad that someone else is better than you. It's not their fault. It's yours. They've most likely spent years getting better at something that you are just now trying to learn to play. Just try to work at it, learn and get better as each hole/round goes by. It takes time."

    Maryland sucks at golf. Ohio State's been wrecking the field for years. It's not Ohio States fault that Maryland can't get off the tee without burning some grass 10 yards in front. If only they'd repair their divots...

    Btw...my golf game is somewhere between Maryland and Iowa.

    Yeah, I'm like Purdue. I don't even really try. I just show up when I am supposed to and try to keep it under 100.

    I can actually play the game, hit the ball and make a good putt here and there. I'm just never going to beat somebody that is any good. And I've never won anything in my lifetime.

    But yeah, my goal is still to keep it under 100. I usually settle for 1-0-something.

    FRESHMAN DWAYNE HASKINS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITY TO IMITATE DESHAUN WATSON ON OHIO STATE SCOUT TEAM IN BOWL PRACTICE

    [​IMG]

    Dwayne Haskins' first name starts with the same letter as the man Ohio State's defense is set to face in the biggest game of the season. So it is only fitting he gets to put on a scout team jersey with the same number as Deshaun Watson as the Buckeyes prepare for the Fiesta Bowl.

    “We have Dwayne playing him a little bit. There’s a number of guys switching in there a little bit, but Dwayne, he’s been slinging it lately,” linebacker Jerome Baker said on Thursday at Ohio State Media Day. “He’s definitely a good look.”

    Bowl practices allow for young players to get more snaps and practice time without classes and other school responsibilities filling their time. Winter break at Ohio State began on Thursday and the Buckeyes are nearly two weeks out from facing Watson and No. 2 Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl on New Year's Eve as part of the College Football Playoff. The thing that is interesting about the Buckeyes this season, though, is their players that lack experience own a host of the starting positions. That is what happens when you have to replace 16 starters and 12 NFL Draft picks from a year ago.

    Except at quarterback. Redshirt junior J.T. Barrett is the man at that position and redshirt freshman Joe Burrow shadows him and works with the second team offense in order to be ready as the backup. So for now, it is on Haskins to act as the Heisman Trophy runner-up in order to prepare one of the nation's best defenses to face one of its best offenses.

    Easy enough, right? Not really. But Haskins is thriving.

    “He can throw. He's a great thrower,” cornerback Marshon Lattimore said, adding that Haskins doesn't look like a true freshman. “Not when he throws the ball, no. He's a great thrower.”

    Tim Beck revealed that Burrow had to leave practice early on Wednesday to take his last final exam and close out Autumn Semester. As the team period of practice wound down, Haskins stepped into the huddle with the second team offense and performed well.

    “I like Dwayne, Dwayne Haskins has had an opportunity to get more reps,” Beck said. “But even like [Wednesday] Joe had a final and had to miss a little bit at the end. Dwayne got an opportunity to go in there. It's really good work for him. I love what I see out of him and what he's doing. That's always a good positive to be able to see that.”

    It is impossible and frankly unfair to ask a true freshman to completely replicate someone of Watson's caliber. The Clemson quarterback finished second in the voting for the most prestigious award in the sport this season and third two years ago. Baker even joked that Haskins isn't nearly what Watson is as a runner—“He tries to be,” the linebacker said with a laugh.

    But that isn't Haskins' job during bowl practice. It is to throw the ball all over the field like Watson does to his bevy of receivers and get defenders like Lattimore, Baker and the rest of Ohio State's pass defense ready to face its stiffest challenge yet.

    “He’s definitely getting better,” Baker said of Haskins. “These past few practices, he’s been throwing like a maniac. He’s good.”

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Just watched his senior highlights. Not sure what it is exactly but I absolutely love how he throws it. Ball just seems like it's shot out of a rifle with just the right amount of trajectory. His motion just looks so compact and quick and then BOOM----->

    I can't wait for the competition between he and Burrow next year(assuming JT leaves). I really lime what both bring to the table. Haskins does play very smooth and has a great pass/run balance to his game. He reminds almost of Troy Smith in a way, to where he has a run as a last option way to his game

  13. I actually expect JT to return unless he blows up over the next 2 games. Right now after this past season I see him being a late round draft pic, if drafted at all. Now maybe he can't improve on that at all, but I think he could be a mid round draft pick if he gets back to his freshman season form. And that would be good for the Burrow/Haskins competition.
