Every drive holds the same importance, 2 minutes left or not.  The right calls should be made, regardless of how many you've missed prior.

Comment 16 Jan 2017

it doesn't matter who the program is, it's going to be a big deal.  

Sure, it might get a 30-second spot on Sportscenter, but it wouldn't get the half-hour repeated segments on talk shows and continuous bashing threads on Ohio State football forums.  Not a chance. 

Comment 16 Jan 2017

Getting tackled vs. tripping over the defender's feet is also a big difference.  One of the two missed PI calls against Dallas stalled a promising GB drive in Dallas territory.  Bottom line, the officiating wasn't heavily in favor of either side, so there's no point in complaining about it.

Comment 16 Jan 2017

Not sure how you think this was "stolen" or that Dallas got "jobbed".  Refs also missed two blatant PI/holding calls against Dallas secondary.  On one of them, Davante Adams' shoulder pad was hanging out from the DB pulling his jersey down and still no call.  Rodgers and Co. beat Dallas fair and square.

He's gotten away with his antics with no serious repercussions

As a fellow Duke fan, I can't agree with you that he deserves serious repercussions.  He's tripped three players and threw a fit on the bench.  This is way overblown because it's a Duke thing and because Allen is a whiny punk.  No one would care if this was an OSU bball player, probably because no one would even know it's going on.

That's essentially it.  People also love to bash Coach K as being an enabler for these types of guys, but it's definitely a stretch and rooted more in their distaste for Duke basketball.  They will say otherwise, and I will not believe them.

Comment 13 Jan 2017

I have always thought Smith deserves at least another year to prove himself due to the success of guys like Thomas, Marshall, Miller, Samuel.  Smith is a great recruiter, but as we saw with Tim Beck, Development > Recruiting.  It's time for Smith to prove (again) that he can develop the WR unit.

Pisanello's is good, but Myles' was the best.  It's replacement, Pizza Pub 516, is still better than Pisanello's.  And then you have Pagliai's and Campus Pollyeyes, which are good in their own right.  Needless to say, Papa John's should not be considered.

Comment 11 Jan 2017

Thank God coach K only has to be responsible for about 15 kids - can you imagine if he had to watch over an entire football team.

I'm not really sure how to take this other than to assume it's coming from a place of complete ignorance.  Take your jabs at Allen all you want.  I'm pretty sure countless young men would vouch to being better people because of Coach K's role in their lives.

Thad set the bar at Ohio State, and then he failed to sustain that success.  I've heard many say that Ohio State will never be a blue blood program in basketball, but I feel that's coming from the complacency that was evident before Thad's reign.  This university has all the resources to be top-tier in both basketball and football, and Thad showed it's very doable, so why would fans want to settle for less?  Sure, be appreciative of what Thad has done, but also understand that it's time to move on.

Comment 08 Jan 2017
He's a teenager who was the star QB in the state of Florida who was likely pushed to be a WR despite the coaching staff's promise that he'd get his shot at QB. Yes, he wanted to transfer at one point. So did Malik Hooker and countless others. Urban publicly stated that he didn't agree with OSU's decision to suspend him. With the lack of info, I will always side with Urban on that. He's been pretty swift in getting rid of problems, including highly rated DE SeVon Pittman. Also, Gibson was not the one who brought attention to the whole JuCo situation. I think his "drama" is highly exaggerated during his time at Ohio State, likely due to how high profile and drama-filled his recruitment was. His potential at WR is stupid high, and Urban and Co. would be dumb not to accept him back, especially with Brown's departure.
Comment 07 Jan 2017
This is beginning to look more and more like an epic troll job on Darnay's part. Seems odd they would put DO NOT SHOW in title/caption unless they wanted to bring attention to it. If Darnay picks anyone but USC, then the troll game has been changed forever.
Comment 07 Jan 2017
If Darnay is truly going to these lengths just to troll, then that's probably a good sign for UCLA as that is the only team that hasn't gotten much smoke until Wiltfong's CB.
Comment 05 Jan 2017
Give me a break. Repeat offender or not, we're talking about a DUI versus tripping people. I don't care if the dude tripped 10 players, the DUI is much worse. You're allowed to call Grayson Allen a punk, but to expect him to be suspended for a whole year or even any substantial time is just absurd. Again, the only reason people care is because they love to hate Duke.
Comment 03 Jan 2017

Urban's initial staff at OSU was damn near perfect, particularly with Herman at OC and Warriner at OL.

With assistants starting to get paid what they deserve, we might see some guys stick with their expertise rather than trying to go the head coaching route.  Warriner is arguably the best OL coach in the country, he needs to stay there.  I think the same will hold true about Fickell as a LB coach.  I'm not convinced he's cut out to succeed as the head guy.

Legions of Florida Gator fans are sitting with their arms folded, snickering at us

Uhhh, he's already given us one national championship... 

Comment 03 Jan 2017

Yeah, but then I question why Meyer would choose to go with Warriner if Beck didn't show some deficiencies.  It sounds like from that link that he tried both out for size.  Meyer will make mistakes, he's human.  But personally, I'm not sad to see Beck go.  I'll miss his recruiting of course, but I'm much more interested in development.
