Yes, Hackenberg is a stud...he is gonna be on his back a lot this year though...
Yes, Penn State's offensive line is a mess...kind of hurts you if you do great recruiting skill players but don't build an offensive line.
Mix Breckenridge Vanilla Porter and Kentucky Bourban Barrel Stout equally into it....its phenomenal.
As painful as it is to think about the 2011 season we had an opportunity to win every game we lost that season except probably the Miami game. That happened without Urban Meyer or his recruiting, Tom Herman as offensive coordinator and Joe Bauserman splitting carries with a Freshman Braxton Miller, who didn't know the playbook and was being coached by Siciliano and Boelman....I think we will be OK.
Not saying Mauk isn't good but did you look at the receivers he was throwing those balls to? I would watch him play because he is an Ohio guy and I saw those guys make A LOT of plays on the ball. OSU's receivers have not really made big plays on the ball nearly as often over the past few years. I am just saying you can't say definitively that a guy that had 6 or 7 fairly productive games is going to be have a better career than someone that hasn't had the opportunity to show what he can do on the field....I am perfectly happy with our quarterback recruiting.
"Guys, we may not win a single game this season...but with God as my witness, we will be the best damn bus riders in college football!"
Thanks so much for all the comments and suggestions! I am excited to get moved in down there and check things out. It's nice that Columbus is only about a 6.5 hour drive so I can still make it back for some OSU games.
Thanks for the info! Yeah I am yet to hear a bad thing about Charlotte (besides OSU not being located there). I have looked into the alumni association a bit, probably be something I pursue once I get settled down there. I need to find a nice bar with a good craft beer selection and lots of televisions.
I think they have problems with their fans getting too drunk and causing issues. People I know from that miserable state have said that the people get just nasty sloppily drunk in East Lansing.
I think everyone knew he would recruit well, and honestly PSU should have been able to clean up that region of eastern PA into MD and NJ for years and haven't really done that. I am curious to see how good of a coach he actually is...his record at Vandy is deceptive because their non-conference schedules were pathetic and their wins against the decent SEC teams were while they were dumpster fires. Plus, almost anytime a new coach comes in there is a huge boost in recruiting...look at Kentucky and Tennessee. If I had to guess PSU will be a more talented team while he is there but a worst coached team than they were in previous years, so it will even out.
"The Cleveland Browns are the greatest sports franchise in the world."
I read this sentence and didn't know whether to chuckle or throw up in my mouth a bit....
I really think A&M will take a pretty big step back, like maybe win 6 or 7 games. Their defense was abysmal last year and I watched opposing defenses get pressure and stuff them pretty good until Manziel escape and throw up a prayer to Mike Evans...losing both of them to the draft will hurt them quite a bit.
Now if only our D can get more stops this year so more of these guys can get touches, so many players that I want to see what they can do!
I guess the sign out front that said "Pay Money to Make Friends" just wasn't cutting it anymore huh?.....
Damn, I wish I would have hopped on that Dominoes stock!....beyond that, great story. I am sure it will make its way over to scUM boards and make for some good conversation.
Falco because he hooked up with the smokin' cheerleader in that movie...mmmm.
Great analysis, I have not been a big fan of the two coordinator system. The identity issues have been evident due to the contrasting styles. Also, the point that Fickel may not have a grasp of the entire defense is a good point, I think he may be best suited to being a position coach at this point. Although maybe they will make some drastic improvements and prove everyone wrong....I thought that after last season though.
He wasn't a RichRod recruit so he probably wouldn't have started for scUM anyway.
Whoever wrote this is at least 70 years old...the only people I have ever met who write extensively in cursive are over the age of 70. If this is the case I will give him a pass because once you get up there in age you should be able to begin writing insane letters to whoever you want. Once you get over the age of 80 then you should begin saying insane things out loud, respect your elders!
That is outrageous that Arkansas is paying that tub inadequacy that much money when all he does is complain and lose games...I am in the wrong profession, I can complain and lose games too!!
Gene Smith leaves and OSU hires Gordon Gee to replace him as AD. He always wanted to be more involved in the athletic side of things anyway. (Disclaimer: This is a joke)
Oh man, scUM's offensive line is gonna have a rough day with this one. They were getting torn apart by Penn State's d-line and I think we all saw last weekend how "good" Penn State's d-line is...
There will always be racism in some form because ignorance will never go away. This major issue is when it goes beyond an idiot here or there and is present in people with positions of power like the UA President. Although defenders will say that he is just standing up for their rights as an independent group, that is the same bullsh$# argument people who support the Confederacy had....its pathetic.
