But notice how virtually no one outside of Tuscaloosa likes Saban?
That is a man amongst kids.
I'm no expert but having the same number of picks as you do completions seems no bueno. I'm hoping Washington can give Bama a game, assuming they land 1, 4.
I dunno, I kinda want Michigan to get in. They'd get their "shot" and would never ever be able to say The Game and the "bad refs" kept them out. They lose all excuses then. And Alabama would smoke 'em.
Good stuff. I'm very torn about whether to root for Colorado or not. On the one hand, I want Michigan to suffer and be left out. But part of me thinks their whining might go away some if they make the final 4 - i.e. they'll think "justice" was ultimately served. They can't blame The Game on keeping them out of the playoffs, and they'd get their shot to prove something. And then they can get a big ole piece of Bama and get their asses handed to them.
Isn't T.J. Watt a linebacker?? Not sure why he'd be in the running for lineman of the year. Did he switch positions a lot?
Yeh B01752 is all like:
Pfft since when does Beth get names right?
Two things that might make LSU enticing: 1) no Nick Saban as your boss (who screams at you when you're handily beating an FCS school) and 2) LSU's offense has been so abysmal to come in and finally fix it would be a huge success story/resume builder.
EXCUSE ME - the Ducks already have a coach, so Schiano must stay!
That wouldn't suck.
Let's win some bowl games this year before we say the B1G is "dominating." Last year's biwl season sucked for the B1G.
Which Uw? Depends...
FWIW, TCU wasn't idle that week in 2014.
If he sticks around and tries to improve - great. If he gives the NFL a try and does well, great. I don't see it happening, though, but I see him as one HELL of a coach someday.
I don't believe ANY senior class for any team has had 50 wins except our class from last year, let alone 2 in a row.
Hahahahahahaah! Get them a participation trophy quick!
I'm with you. Right now the argument is: how do you leave this 1-loss team out or that 1-loss team out? And we need 8 teams to ensure a good/worthy team isn't left out. But as soon as you go to 8 teams just think of how many TWO-loss teams will now be "unfairly" left out.
Put another way, as of now, the CFP in its short history, doesn't seem like it will ever put a 2-loss team in the final four. But opening things up to 8 teams certainly could allow that and we have the same problem we have now. There will still be teams (perhaps more!) that have a case but are left on the outside.
Keep it at 4 teams please.
Said this elsewhere also...I'm not sure if this is solely JT's issue, or if the O-line also takes some blame. But how many throws is JT going to have batted down at the line of scrimmage? I counted 4-5 in The Game alone, but it's happened a lot in other games recently as well.
I heard Dan Dierdorf this morning also. Very annoying. He actually said he would try to not "wear his team's hat" (or something like that) during the interview. He failed miserably. And M&M kept saying they agreed.
I'm also very annoyed with how many throws JT is getting batted down by the opposing defensive line. It happened 4-5 times in The Game, and has happened multiple times in recent games also.
There are about 3-4 things that need work, but they're all fixable. Let's go to work and the stock UP on our offense and passing game.
Couldn't agree more. The passing game did have some sparks. If we just put a few things together, shore up the right side of the offensive line...this team will be dangerous. Right NOW, our D is good enough to keep any game close - even against Bama.
Not sure, but we did have one year where our line was only called for like 3 holds the ENTIRE season (or something amazing like that). This stat you're hearing isn't totally out of the realm of possibility, but I doubt it's true.
I foresee a new 11W dry goods shirt....
I read Birm's landof10 writeup about Wilson and he really seemed to come away impressed. IT seems like it was that good of a visit that he's definitely in play.
