Kind of an uninspiring Saturday evening schedule. Anybody else gonna be tuning in USA/Mexico?
NW's wins over Stanford and Minnesota are probably the two most impressive wins in the B1G this season, including Sparty's win over Oregon. That match up with Michigan will be interesting to say the least.
That's a great one. Here's one of my favorite covers:
Wife got me Marky Ramone's memoir for father's day this year and it's filled with great little stories about the band. Since it's Johnny's birthday, I'll just mention that he gave the band assigned seats in their travel van and would not move if people weren't in the right seat. Saw them my freshman year in college, but wish I could've seen them in '77.
So, here they are at their peak. It's anthemic. Take it Dee Dee!
Yessir. Rocket from the Tombs too:
Proto-punk from the streets of Cleveland.
Stay klassy Penn State!
1) Buckeyes. Not playing great, but the schedule will allow us to improve each week. Too much talent on the field and sidelines for this team to not win the B1G.
2) Alabama. Their loss to Ole Miss lit a fire and they are still the class of the SEC. I never got on the off-season Auburn bandwagon, and I'm not hopping aboard LSU's.
3) Oklahoma. Sorry TCU and Baylor, but you're about to get branded again! Three way tie atop the Big 12 but the blue blood gets the nod.
4) FSU. They'll beat Clemson because beating Clemson is what they do.
Out: PAC 12 champ
A lot of solid teams in the top of the PAC 12 but no one dominant. That means multiple losses to the champ and the PAC 12 gets left out of the playoff.
Corrected, thanks. That's what I get for posting from my phone when I'm supposed to be working.
I don't think so. I wouldn't have been surprised to see the UT trustees take him away in handcuffs before the 4th quarter of the TCU game, and their schedule is not letting up. This Saturday they will likely get beat down by Oklahoma, their arch rival. Then they'll still have to suffer the indignity of getting destroyed by Baylor, another in-state rival that the UT people think it is their God-given right to dominate. I also think they're likely to lose to TT, meaning that they will have lost to three Texas schools and their arch rival along with a clear understanding that TAMU would pound them as well. That is unacceptable at Texas. Strong is toast.
Are people simply forgetting that JT has had plenty of chances this season to run the offense and has looked no better than Cardale in those opportunities? He was given the chance and could not win the job. Why is that so hard to process?
Honestly, zero. I've been as frustrated as anyone watching our offense spin it's wheels, but there's just too much talent on the field and on the sidelines for it to continue. Urban says he's seeing improvement, and I expect to keep seeing more.
Rutgers and Maryland every year.
Rutgers. And Maryland. Every. Damn. Year.
This is not a Playoff team at the moment.
I agree. Good thing the playoff isn't being played at the moment. I'm not saying we will improve, but there is still time, and we might.
I might still put the Buckeyes at number one, but there are a lot of teams I'm glad we're not playing next week.
No idea anymore what to expect from this team. I'll keep watching each week, trying to enjoy the game, and hoping they improve.
Does Charlie Strong make it to the end of the season in Texas? I'm starting to think no.
Why so defensive?
I'm not being defensive. You're being defensive. Why is it always the other guy who's being defensive?
I'm in my 40's so I'm not sure. Should I tweet some teenage football players and ask?
Wow, so pretty much every team in the AP top 25 is better than our lowly Buckeyes. Seriously, have you watched all those teams play all their games? Was it LSU's 10 point win over Syracuse that impressed you? Maybe Northwestern's 5 point win over Ball State? How about that 1 point win UCLA pulled out against BYU, or Clemson's resounding wins over Wofford and Appy State? ND's miracle comeback win against UVA was certainly entertaining, although Sparty's 13 point win over the WMU team the Buckeyes beat by 26 was kind of a snooze. Oh, and five teams on your list have actually lost football games this season. I could go on, but the point should be clear. Nearly all the teams on that list have had their struggles, so why hold only the Buckeyes accountable for theirs?
It is clear to any Buckeye fan that has watched our four games that we haven't looked our best. Still, have you really watched 19, maybe 20 teams that have looked better? If so, who are they?

How is it that every time uniforms are brought up, this board turns into this?
