I don't think I've ever rooted for a non-buckeye team more than I will for Houston this year. So much respect for Tom, and really pulling for him to have a successful career as a head coach (that eventually leads to him taking over the buckeyes in 2025 after Urban retires with 10 more national championships).

I'm trying not to read into D'Angelo being in Los Angeles, because I want him to come back next year.

This was my first thought as well. Hope he's just out there for a field trip with his class..

Love that answer. Everything doesn't have to be compared to the SEC. The Buckeyes are the standard now.

I'm right there with ya, AB. Your point about the basketball team made me think.. In past years I've gotten into all things buckeye way more - basketball and recruiting being the main examples.

I've noticed this year I'm not nearly into either one as much as the past few years. I'm sure some of that has to do with the lack of success (bball), but I think a large portion of it is because I don't want to let this season go. It was truly a special run that I'll take to the grave with me, and I wish it wasn't over.

Anyway, sorry for the rant, and go bucks!

Nothing more motivational than the potential of building a Dynasty.

Jesse Palmer:  "Urban micromanages and controls every aspect of his team."

5 minutes later:  "Urban delegates and knows how to let his coaching staff manage things."

Man, that really sucks. I remember watching him commit during the Under Armour All-American game and being so excited.

Wish him the best with his health moving forward.

Comment 03 Jan 2015

Yeah, I wondered about that as well. Whatever. Let's just make it 6 by their count a week from Monday.

Comment 03 Jan 2015

I doubt it'll take much motivation to play in the National Championship against a team that just hung 59 in a total domination of the defending national champs in the rose bowl. 

These boys have been playing hungry all year long, and Oregon not having any national championships won't change that. These guys aren't interested in history. They're interested in making it.

Wasn't trying to hate, so sorry if it came off that way. I understand it was a difficult situation to be put into, just thought it was weird the way he handled it.

Comment 30 Dec 2014

I didn't mind him for a majority of the press conference, but the thing that bugged me was how he refused to acknowledge the fact that Michigan has been down for the past few years.

I get it, you want to come in and show your passion/loyalty because it makes you look good to the fans, recruits, and other people that you need to impress. But it was a little ridiculous to just shrug off the last few years like they didn't happen. In fact, if I were a fan, I'd prefer he take the opposite stance. Face the truth head on, and promise to turn things around.

Other than that, I thought he was good. Except for the whole "dismay" debacle.

Comment 30 Dec 2014

Hard to see them realigning just because of a coaching hire. Also since they just realigned this past year - another realignment a year or two later wouldn't look very good for the B1G - need to stick to their guns.

Now, if (when) more expansion happens, that's another story. But for now, the geography makes sense.

Comment 29 Dec 2014

I really think the O-line will play well. I know that Bama is a different beast, but I really like the attitude/mindset this team has taken on. They aren't afraid of the "almighty SEC," and I think playing with a chip on their shoulder is the perfect way to attack this team. 

Kinda like the '02 game against Miami. Hit them right in the mouth early on and show them we mean business. Then we'll see how they react.

Comment 29 Dec 2014

Amen. It almost seems like Meyer/Herman have intentionally held him back this season, especially after the Indiana game. Almost like they didn't want to show their hand before they have to.

Comment 29 Dec 2014

I'm very excited to see how he performs with his toughest task thus far in his career. He's had a great year so far, and you are correct - millions to be made if he can slow Cooper down.
