Always had the same problem. Even bought a new laptop but it's still the same. Eventually gave up and quit bothering to try.
The way I understand it over signing is a must, it's the amount and timing of attrition that has created the controversy. Signing 28 kids while only having 22 scholarships open and then magically having just the right amount of attrition between signing day and the day scholarships are counted (sometime in May I think) stinks of abuse. I would also point out that new coaching staffs would naturally have more players leaving than a staff that has been in place just because the players weren't recruited by the new coaches.
I like the B1G's chances... doubled right off the bat.
I like Wisky's chances against lsu.... Wisky can run, so they can control the clock, and lsu's offense is in rebuild mode. Plus I think Miles is average at best, if Dantonio has done more with less, Les has done less with more, and he's a poor clock manager. In a game that Wisky will surely be looking to control the time of possession that's going to be critical.
MSU's power run game and disciplined D will give them a good chance against Oregon.
When it comes to Ohio State... if records are identical, there are only a few teams that garner the respect that OSU does. It's easy to forget that sometimes, through all the haters, but all those at-large BCS invites speaks volumes.
I also like that the B12 plays one less game.... if all five conference champs have one loss, that 12-1 will look better than the 11-1.
I doubt we'll see that for a few years at least. The committee will be mindful that the playoff is seeking acceptance and leaving out 2 of the Power 5 and ND right off the bat would be a big hit to that. Dual conference teams in the playoff is probably coming, I just think they'll involve as much of the country as possible for awhile just to give it some traction by everybody getting a taste early.
If it was any other team heading west to play Oregon, I would agree. However, Oregon's niche is the up tempo, snap it b4 they're ready offense... I'm of the opinion that few, if any, coaches do a better job of having the D ready than Dantonio and Narduzzi. Oregon doesn't have a personnel edge, they've got some fast guys sure but they don't really have the elite athletes of a bama or fsu and if it comes down to coaching... MSU has the edge there. MSU also should have a nice mix of confidence and hunger.. hunger for national respect and the confidence from beating OSU and Stanford, that's a dangerous mix.
until one is needed....
You know you're in Buckeye Country when a 3rd string TE and ST player's possible departure garners so much attention. Take note recruits.... that's love for our Buckeyes. Got his degree and a new baby at home, regardless what happens with his playing days... dudes gonna do alright for himself.
Well, I did say "apparently" :p.... Thx for the clear up. You would think a team spokesman would be the "go to guy" for info, never considered they'd mis-inform intentionally. Lesson learned...
If that's right, that's a helluva good call... would have never thought of that.. well done sir
Why do you say that?
The problem was always Withers... when the DBs weren't out of position, they'd get lost in coverage or miss a tackle or mis-play the ball just to watch it sail over their heads. I just don't think he was as dedicated to the team as a coach needs to be....just an assumption but when you ask a coach with head coach aspirations for a two year commitment he'll spend those two years with an eye to the future.
I assumed Baker was considered the top Ohio player because he has great value at LB and RB, where as Hilliard, as far as I know, plays strictly LB.
B1G recruiting is going to be better going forward. The conference footprint moving into the NE is a perfect marriage, it's extremely populated but with no good home for it's football talent... until now. I doubt the recruiting rankings will ever fall into B1G favor because recruiting analysts live at the camps and nobody camps like the South. The familiarity with the southern players will always breed a certain amount of favoritism, but there is more than enough talent in the Midwest and NE to make a few more B1G teams national powers and bring some of the bottom dwellers into respectability.
By all means, shy away from contact.... please.
As long as it's Meyer's fault it's not Muschump's... good recipe for continuing the spiral
What's left to do but hope he represents well? I'll be rooting for him to run roughshod over the sec....
Worry about the stress of the job with Meyer, but that's a genuinely happy smile....
Winston's wheel man?
Announcer here at @TheOpening2014 discusses Ryan Shazier's performance and incorrectly states he was from Pitt - clearly thinking Steelers.— Jeremy Birmingham (@Birm) July 9, 2014
That wouldn't be too bad if the announcer corrects by saying that Ryan is currently playing for Pittsburgh but went to Ohio State.... give the kids a little something to think about ;)
I think Cook and Golston are two of the counselors
M*chigan at least has a chance of being decent plus Ill is much more likely to fire a coach mid-season
