It would be nice to get the W against Crean and their entitled fans. Hope the Schott is rocking tomorrow!
The Beyoncé line is beyond stupid for someone in his position. Or anyone who is a fan of TTUN.
I almost feel bad for their fans.
Living in ATL I am obviously surrounded by SEC mouth breathers. But it also has allowed me to meet several UNC alumni and they are, without question, the most arrogant, self absorbed people I have come across. They actually make TTUN's fans tolerable (kind of...).
This "scandal" has done nothing to take their pious-ness down a notch. Zero humility.
I was a fan of Roy Williams at KU. But since he has been UNC's coach he encapsulates their smugness.
There is soooooo much smoke here that something has to come of it. Blows me away the WWL has ignored it this long. Maybe this is the turning point? But I doubt it.
Big difference, to be sure. That said, Brandon/Hoke stated that back-to-back roadies in East Lansing "were no big deal."
Hubris, ladies and gentlemen.
Great article. A nasty D will take the pressure off of an inexperienced O line and allow them to mature.
Love the trajectory of the program.
One big difference is that Tressel would have taken ten paragraphs to say the same thing as Meyer did in two sentences.
The 2009 USC game was the tipping point for me doubting Tressel-Ball. Clearly the superior team lost and he gives zero substance in his presser.
If UFM had been in that same seat imagine the candidness...
Actually, we prolly would have won the game. Love Tress and all he did but man was he frustrating at times.

While I am sure the lunatic fringe in C-Bus gave him trouble there are other reasons he relocated. His wandering eye being the main one.
It looks as if he is asking the bench if he can come out and the Flyer got in his way.
Apples and oranges. IU's entitled fan base makes it very easy to enjoy their squirming. Crean is a toad.
PSU, otoh, doesn't give a damn about bball.
The sting of not making the NCAAs hurts the Hoosiers much, much more.
I know Vandy dropping their game with us has been beat to death but the Rittenberg article would indicate that SDSU replaced the Commodores, not FAMU.
Now, I am getting on in years but I distinctly remember reading "Gene replaced Vandy with FAMU" and dropped the ball in getting a tougher opponent.
So, am I "mis"remembering?
Sanders walked on the balls of his feet, never letting his heels touch the ground, whenever I saw him on campus. I tried it one day, criss-crossing the Oval going to classes. My Achilles and calves were in agony for at least a week.
However a part of me will always think if I had stuck with that walking style I could've been in the 1.6%. You know, if I had played football and everything.
That's one service, ESPN, that is often thought of as the least credible in recruiting.
I am not disagreeing that we need to continue to recruit well, but the sky is far from falling.
A few years back I recall an official from Syracuse saying that ESPN was providing "guidance" on conference affiliations. It was quickly redacted and but with the amount of alumni at the WWL from 'Cuse I have little doubt it occurred.
It will be interesting to see which, if any, B1G schools are mentioned. PSU for sure but who else?
Easy tiger. Spencer is being made an example of for disrespecting another team. The kids will remember this and think twice before doing it next time. I personally like it.
And Spencer is a confident kid, Meyer knows this, so it is doubtful he takes his own life for this comment.
Any news on Decker's sprained ligaments?
Agree with you on Winfield, dude is a beast.
I believe he is from Cincinnati, though, from a family of 11 (ish).
I'd never heard that Sanders smoked.
And I agree with you that it is hard to fathom elite athletes taking a smoke break.
Good read. Getting the most out of your team, whether it is in sports or business, requires flexibility that Knight
never had chose not to possess. It seems like Coach K took the best tenants from BK (discipline, heady play) and applies nuances to each kid. Oversimplification, I know, but BK may have achieved much, much more in his career had he evolved.
Just finished watching on DVR. Was Lunardi on the call? Wow, he could not have been less happy with Bucks win. Even in my Scarlet colored world it was one sided.
Anyway good to get the W, always a tough out.
As stated above I think this year is the true litmus test on our OL recruiting.
We already have two commits and I am VERY optimistic we have a huge haul in this area.
Agreed Cajun. Very inspirational!
Geez, Mr. E you must be a blast at tailgates!
That's not very "optimistic"...see what I did there?
