Chin up...everyone makes at least one terrible mistake in their life.
Deadly Nuts, I'm with you brother! Most said we were out of playoff contention last year. The dominoes are falling into place (at least this weekend). Next week if Bama and Stanford lay eggs, I see us as the #4.
50 wins with to 4 losses with only one conference title to show for it...
You forgot to mention a Sugar Bowl win, a National Championship win, a 1-0 record over the SEC (Alabama at that) and a 3-0 record over TUN. Don't get silly now...doesn't compare to the Cavs.
Oh #!*€... It's gopher hunting season and the Buckeyes switched from a Beretta to a 12-gauge!
Let's not kid ourselves. If it was one of TSUN's top players and he only had one game suspension, many OSU fans would be doing the same thing. One of our dudes screwed up. Oh well. As long as we beat them on the field, I don't care.
I think you were referring to the Norte Dame WR. I feel you man!!! Every time our players do the flying chest bump up to celebrate (how the ND kid got hurt) it freaks me out.
You are not alone in your irrational fears...
Followed by the rest of the analysts asking the producer (on live TV) if they can mute him for the remainder of the show.
Sorry Matt, I'm being that guy as well.
The last time we lost to a B1G opponent was MSU in the B1G Championship. Not PSU. However, if you caveat it with regular season game, we are all good!
Great write up.
EDIT: You wrote in C-bus. My bad! I need to read more carefully.
Here's a little more... https://www.facebook.com/scott.edwards.3304/videos/10206677670154213/
Last week against Maryland. Cardale to Jalin.
Fly, remember that the line is not what Vegas thinks is going to happen. The line is what Vegas thinks the people think is going to happen. The change in spread is just giddy scUM fans.
That being said, If I bet (which I don't) I would put my money on UM.
This post was pretty refreshing. I'm very optimistic and I also think we will peak when the time is right.
The whole, "the sky is falling" outlook on this team is not only annoying, it's inaccurate. Despite the turnovers, red zone issues and penalties, we are still leading the B1G in scoring offense. The next closest team scores almost a touchdown (5.1 points) less per game than we do. While our defense has areas we need to improve on, we are only giving up 4.11 yards per play (last year it was 4.98).
I get that teams like Utah and TTUN are playing great football in September and October. Well, so did Ole Miss and Miss State last year. Trophies are awarded in December and Janurary. If we just win and are able to peak in November, watch out!
Dude, you are joking right? Wow!
Maybe "against the blitz" and under pressure mean two different things. I don't know. I pulled those stats from a Washington Post article comparing the QBs. They were probably off. Oh well. Michigan still sucks.
Actually, last year, CJ's passing percentage (61.5%) and TD to INT ratio (7:1) was much better under the blitz than without the blitz. His TD ratio without the blitz was 0:1! This stat blew my mind!
"Actually, it's pronounced sa-tin!"
...love that movie!
I don't thing the "road" environment will be signifigant. Playing in Indiana the last few times has been 60-70% OSU fans. However, Indiana's offense (leading the B1G) has been churning and it will be a great test for our defense.
Same people that called for Herman's head for "getting Barrett hurt" by running him too much. I assume they are missing him now.
I will caveat my comments with the fact that I was uneasy seeing Cardale take the first snap at VT and am still a little uneasy. However, I am not arrogant enough to act like I know better than the staff.
Getting the ball on the 35 is a huge play in itself. If every one of our kickoff returns was to the 35 yard line, I would be very pleased.
I just saw that as well! He got blasted. Didn't notice it in the game though.
Our our defense didn't really come together until mid-season last year. At this time last year fans were calling for Fickell's head because we gave up 4-5 huge pass plays (50+ yards) to Cincinnati. Our offense will find its groove. Until then, we are lucky to have an amazing defense.
I couldn't agree more! This is douchebaggery at its finest.
Since the Urban Meyer era, May has been right 3 times. Unfortunately for him, he's been wrong 38 times. What a tool!
I played WR/DB in high school (Brighton, UT). I graduated in 1996 and went to play WR at the Air Force Academy. I only played into the middle of my Sophmore year and decided to hang up the cleats after a concussion and a high ankle injury. Loved high school ball. College ball felt like a job, but a fun job. When I stopped playing, I was 204 at 5'11". I was short for a receiver, but ran a 4.45. Anyway, who am I kidding. When I was at the Academy, WRs were outside perimeter blockers.
