If the bagmen are what it takes so be it, no one complains about coaching contracts, endorsement deals or the fat paydays that the universities get from TV. It's the worst kept secret in sports, enjoy the game and lets not pretend any school is "above" this sort of thing.
Add part of our Ohio Congressional delegation to that list, at the celebration Saturday I'm nearly certain I heard a thank you to "Coach Meyers"
Thank you and God Bless WarNut, his family and any other servicemen/women who may find their way to 11W, living in north Florida situates us between several large military installations and I too pray for them every night and thank God for their protection of us and our way of life.
Seeing BIG NUTT front and center on my tv
Bama, rewatched it twice and agree 100% with Urban, sledgehammer game. Still amazed how OSU was able to recover physically and emotionally to dominate (despite the mistakes) the championship game. I also think Bama would have beaten Oregon because they can control the LOS on both sides of the ball.
Logamaniac, I've been "blocked" in the comments section a few times on my work network, reloaded the page, retyped and posted fine.
Panhandle checking in, the FSU/Bama butthurt is off the charts these last 3 weeks. Rotating as much scarlet and grey in the wardrobe as possible, championship swag due to arrive any day now.
Washington Post review from October said there would be no release to liquor stores, however Binny's Beverage Depot's website (locales throughout Illinois) seem to suggest otherwise. I went through the website, added to cart and it is still available, not sure what your S/H cost may be or if you are in a state that prohibits the import of booze but hope this helps
Probabaly more emotionally drained after the sugar bowl than the championship game, had the oh no not this again moment at 21-6, started to believe it could happen with the Spencer TD pass before half, came unglued with pick 6, lost my damn mind on Eze's run and shed a tear when Tyvis finally decided to fall down
If true, good luck to him, he was a beast on special teams and got himself out of Urban's doghouse with his work there.
Ok, maybe he got beat with a catfish named Lennay
May have run over his face with the Escalade too from the looks of things
Art is quickly climbing to Bert level petulance
“It’s so easy to be average. It takes something special to be a great player. We don’t have enough great players? To hell with that! We don’t want to coach average. Why be around average?!…If there’s a touch of greatness in there, how cool would that be?” -Urban Meyer
To your point Cause, there was an article a few years ago where a golf buddy of Saban's congratulated him on winning one of his championships at Alabama and his response was that it cost him a week of recruiting- there's some sour stink for ya. I think Urban and Nick are similar in their drive, maybe Urban post pink contract has learned to smile a little more, but his interview pre-championship about being loose = not serious or silly, instead focusing on the team handling its business like pros and that sounded, dare I say, quite Saban like.
Hard to believe he's 75, grew up watching the end of his career and remains my dad's favorite athlete of all time, Happy Birthday Golden Bear
Tom Rinaldi did the piece, I think it was titled "Diamond in the Rough" I haven't been able to find a video for it though. I think it was on during College Gameday, but not 100% sure.
As always thank you Mr. Birmingham, 11W keeps us the best informed fan base in college football
How much of that "brand exposure" would be going back to Eugene for uniforms/equipment/facilities via the checkbook of Uncle Phil?
Tonight the World is Ours!! UNDISPUTED National Champions, shine on Emopire State, our boy Curtis Samuel grew up in your shadow.
Brutus is going to Disney World, would post the screen shot but trying to stay out of jail tonight
GO BUCKEYES, NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! so proud of this team. Love my 11W crew, this has been the best football season of my life.
I may have GIF'd my pants
Good Luck to the Buckeyes and my fellow ELEVEN WARRIORS, I am nervous, I was just as nervous before each of the last several. The I just got dotted, ready to get it on. GO BUCKS
