I hear all this about how hard it is to get into UM and all, but they get the same types of recruits as we do and except for a few really tough cases, they all get in . They find a way to make it happen. This is big time college football with millions at stake. Just a few years ago Harbaugh ripped them about their basket weaving curriculum...I'm just tired of the superiority bs from their fanbase. Maybe the entrance standards for non-football players is higher, but that is all tossed out the window when a 4* or 5* is in play. They find a way or they lose games. That is big time college football.
or it could be the millions of $$ they will get next year...BUT - Go Bucks!
Thanks M Man - Good luck to you guys as well in rebuilding...To be continued...
Urban should tell papa Boren and mama boren to spend more "quality time" together...We need more Boren ammo : )
starting? what about him was never anything but likable? that kid is on the fast track to a heisman now.
I don't even care about the National title...I just want to beat Bama. That is street cred period...
He has a face for radio
even most sports show analysts were saying he would go to an NFL team...What amuses me is all the savior mentality UM fans have. Being out here in LA and watching PAC 10 games for 20 years, i watched as he was unable to win the PAC 10 even with the 1st round QB Luck...His coaching was very predictable....
He will be an upgrade over Hoke, but this UM team is devoid of much talent. No speed and no playmakers. Should be interesting.
Their only two playmakers, Gardner and Funchess are gone as well as Jake Ryan. They will eventually have players but not next year.
They have no players left. Takes great players to win. Remember, Harbaugh couldn't even win the PAC 10, so lets not rename him Vince Lombardi just yet.
This post is EPIC...It's like Tennessee Buckeye typed my thoughts word for word. My dog is smart for a dog but I'm not sure he is smarter than our cat. ( I do not like cats)..But I have fished out dead lizards from my cats mouth on numerous occasions so there is that.
The Bucks went from 11th in the BIG to 4th. Statistically better for sure but 4th is nowhere near good enough for a team that for 10 years now has had the #1 recruiting class. There is absolutely NO reason to not be 1 or 2. PERIOD.
I'm sure Urban will have something to say to Bosa about this. Urban is a big fan of Lou. Teaching moment for sure.
What a friggin thug that Bengal defender. In field goal range and he acts like a baffoon. That is why Marvin lewis and his undisciplined thugs will never win a championship and that is the difference between The Bengals and a winning organization like the Patriots...Right there.
I have been on him all year and last ...He deserves an immense amount of credit for tonight, so I stand here humbled. That said, it takes more than 1 game to achieve success but he went a long way tonight. Congrats to him big time and hopefully he can game plan against Alabama.
Grew up in Dayton, have lived in Los Angeles for 20 years. My house is less than a mile from where Michael Thomas played HS ball. Go Bucks!
because last year, despite being better than MSU, and after rattling off 4 straight Carlos Hyde TD's, their horrific pass defense lost it for us. A perfect example of the more athletic talented team losing due to a breakdown.
but will we keep those commits? warriner may be the reason we got burrell and bowen.
They are a slightly better Minny or Iowa...
We didn't play anybody that year!!! We had to move Boren into LB to sure up a terrible defense in 2012. AND THAT WAS MEYER AND BOREN'S call. Do you really think that 2012 D would've stopped Alabama in that NC game? C'mon.
Which D under this staff has been even remotely good let alone championship quality?
With the level of athletes here, I can see it taking a few games or even a half a season. I'm not willing to throw away a shot at a nat'l title to wait and see if this D improves under Fickel and Ash. This is game 12 for Gods sake. With the best talent in the BIG hands down.
This whole Fickell cool-aid drinking apologist thing really baffles me...What has he done that makes you so adamant he is the guy? The LB play in the 2004-2008 years was a Heacock led D supervised by a D minded head coach. Over the last 4 years have you seen a dominant OSU defense? We can't get off the field on 3rd down again this year. Opposing QB's still convert 3rd and 15 on a regular basis.
It is time for a change to a proven DC. No co- coord crap. Why on earth should MSU and Wisky have better disciplined and effective defenses than us?
That said, Luke is always a great Buckeye and we love him for that. Go Bucks!
And you know this how? If this D gets torched by Wisky for 500 yes and 30 plus points, it HAS to happen.
so you are ok with mediocrity at OSU?
