Finish on top? I'm just lucky to finish at my age. What I used to do all night takes me all night to do it. When you have a dickydo,(belly sticks out farther than your dickydo) it can be difficult.
I haven't done the count but by the list, the recent toughest stadium to play (PSU) has to have the most losses in it, while Urban has only lost once at home in league play.
Browning staying in Texas instead our FNL seems like he's staying home. I think Dobbins just should have told our coaches instead of telling the press. Now it looks like he's afraid of real competition since he didn't mind Sibley. Urban was quoted that we have turned away high 4 and 5 star players this year on Birm's site. Interesting to know who they were.
I just read on Birm's new site that quoted Urban that he has had to turn away high 4 and 5 star players this year that were interested. That's what we have become.
Small countries with good stories behind them are the best.
My wife and I go women's soccer first followed by relays in track, then swimming. When I was young I enjoyed summer Olympics more than winter which has now reversed.
Not a lot of plays work when the middle of Oline is getting beat on most plays. JT keeping on the read limited some of Zeke's carries. MSU's defensive line out played us.
That's the way I see things also since Browning stayed in Texas for our FNL and Wade seemed bored at it. Wonder if an Early enrollment spot opens up if wade changes his attitude. I would add Tufele so I say 21.
I question whether JT sees the whole field. In the spring game he zeroed in on the tight end and little else where. It just could have been the plan. Borrow comes in and throws it everywhere. I watched the Michigan game yesterday and his head went right where he was going to throw as soon as he got the snap. No scanning the field. No I don't want Borrow and no it is not the end of the world. Just an observation that our lack of passing may not be all coaching.
You have got to be kidding me. I never had a real dislike for Michigan coaches except for Moeller and Harbaugh because they are nuts. I would have cow if I had a child that wanted to play for either of those ass hats no matter where they coached. I would be happy with his brother but NOT him at Ohio State.
Do you suppose we will ever get those forfeit games back anytime soon?
Urban is 50-4 and after each loss somebody needs to be fired. I hate that. Our players were getting beat in the middle of the line almost every play so of course play calling seemed bad. I still believe JT struggles throwing a cold or wet football.
Over the years I have known people like him that take everything person and are ready to fight. They are insufferable. Deep down he knows it was uncalled for but he puts pride above anything. II WOULD NOT want my kid to play for him or admire anything about him. I feel sorry for his children. Luckily he his never home.
Where did Smith lob an insult? Michigan wasn't in the same position as far as recruiting then and Smith answered at that time they didn't feel it was necessary to do the camp thing at that time. Jim responds back a personal insult. Spot on? I agree with the must watch because their many examples of him being an asshole that are more deserving a watch.
I phrased my last sentence wrong also. What I was trying to say was if we entered a season with less than 85, then those could be used as early players along with seniors. The debate is those that leave early for the NFL because if a enrolls early and a player decides he doesn't want to enter 3 days after the enrollment then we are in violation. On the other hand Wade was told we do not have an early enrollment spot for him and with attrition during the fall like we have had then we would have assured him a place. The rulebook is fuzzy here that we can give that Scholly to a player already enrolled (walkon) during the season but no one else. I guess you can put 2+2 together and get 5 because the season ends Jan 15th but one would think Wade would not have had a problem with us in this area. Some of what I've read says teams are committed the August 1 scholarship count with the total amount of seniors as well as redshirt juniors and redshirt sophs (fuzzy here also) that also lost a year due to injury being available for early enrollments for the next cycle. I guess we will see if we lose anybody and Wade or others utilize it. Anyway thanks for the debate.
It's not that I don't understand you. I just don't agree after reading the rule from the NCAA rule book. As a matter of fact they deliberately designated a counter date before fall camp to protect athletes so teams can't dismiss players during the season to create a spot for early enrollees. Dec 1 is the other counter date for enrollees to sign so Jan 15th is too late for that to happen. Last year we reached 85 in May then lost 3 more to attrition (we had topics wanting the season to start before we lost more) before fall camp and that is why we had 3 early. If camp starts with our 85 then no spaces.
Now he has gone from a child's answer to insulting anyone who did not like it. Bringing race to the table.
I thought the defensive line did alright or their job. What I seen was failure to make plays by LBs and DBs in perfect position. Poor techniques. That does reflect on the coaches. Both JT's TD should not have happened with 3 players in position. One a hip fake fooled all three and the other he lowered his head a bulled them in the end zone. Zeke had several runs with someone in the hole getting beat.
It's a child's answer.
It was hard to watch him hang on when it was time for him to move on. He said that he just didn't understand the kids during his last couple of years. The 3 yards and a cloud of dust was just outdated and his struggle amplified when Schlichter came along. But if you look at a lot of his quotes about life, they hold water. I was alive to watch him coach and am proud to be one of his fans. Woody will always be a OSU legend.
After I watched the game over again last week, having a player in position wasn't the problem. Several plays a LB stood in the hole and whiffed completely or the bounced of Zeke. JT's two TDs he ran away from three defenders in good position on one and powered through them on the other. I don't think a new approach will fix getting beat.
Exactly. Last year one of the coaches was at the podium with only a couple of reporters with Harbaugh surrounded by them outside the room. A real Kardashian.
And yet we have no room for Wade this year as an early enrollee. I already said we could not have over 85. So what if Conley and McMillan don't decide until close to Feb and don't go and we have early enrollees and would go over 85. Something doesn't sound right. The rule clearly states Dec 1st for early enrollee. I thought we were at 82 last December with attrition although I could be wrong. The rule has two counters with one coming up and Dec1 and even if a scholarship opens up this fall it can only be used for non scholarship player already enrolled since the first counter (walk-ons). If one were to leave now the Wade could receive one.
I remember they pasted Msu all over magazines as the best in the big 10 and their QB saying that we just didn't have the talent he had around him. We harassed him the whole game and he wasn't heard from again. That long walk Woody took across the field to congratulate as the clock counted down in the Rose was sad.
That's what I was saying but I was also saying that which class we can add them to can count against last year if we lose another before camp opens. (or Sept 1st because I read conflicting dates). It's more for those who sign about the 25 max. The McMillan and Conley situation doesn't sound true because we can never have more than 85 scholarship plays getting aid at anytime so if we were to play in a bowl game past dec1st (which is when early enrollees start getting aid) then we would be over by rule. Dec 1st was the date the rule book used as a guideline as a counter for schollies for early and the rest of the team. Plus some don't decide until Feb so how can a kid come in Dec on that premises.
