I just saw the news of her passing on BTN. May God Bless her, her family, friends, Adrian Payne, and the whole MSU family.

It is fitting that it is MSU day on BTN.

P.S. You do know James Franklin has only beaten 3 teams with winning records, NOT RANKED TEAMS...WINNING TEAMS....in 4 years right?

Comment 09 Apr 2014

Thanks for the response. Also thanks for the info on how Coach Meyer and Coach Herman use the tight ends. I'm kind of a stats guy and it's food for thought. I am hoping that the Bucks use the TE's more this season. With the talent we have it would help open up so many other things. Like I said I HOPE they use them more.....but how long have we, as Bucks fans, been saying that?

I want to see how the QB's do. Especially Cardale, with Braxton's injury history it's very likely that one of them will have to take some important snaps this season. Although it looks like Cardale has separated himself from J.T. pretty well and will be the #2 if the season started today.

Hoke doesn't wear a coat because he has all that fat for insulation....just like a walrus or whale.

All $ec teams play FBS teams late (2nd or 3rd to last game) in their season. They schedule these games to have an easy game before their rivals. Wish we could do that.....but then again I like to play REAL teams before THE GAME (we played Wis. a couple of years ago). Wasn't Ala.'s FBS game against a team that went 1-10 or 2-9 against FBS teams? A glorified scrimmage against a team that is worse than their own walk-ons.

"WE ARE AND YOUR NOT"  and we are SO HAPPY about that. I wouldn't want to be associated with supporting a pedophile.

A-hole talk? I never called anyone an A-hole. Maybe not all of us grew up where you grew up and cursing is as common as eating and breathing where I come from. I have toned it down to an extent maybe some can not understand but it still comes out once in a while. Like I said it was the phrase that came to mind at the time I was typing. What else do you want me to say? And again I did not try to insult the man just that I strongly disagreed with his argument.

I have still not seen anyone, including those who down voted me dispute anything I've said. Except the writer who I answered with a counter argument. Nuf' said.

I have seen many others on this site say things like that....and if you look at any of my past posts you would see I have never said a phrase like that on here before. It was the only phrase I could think of at the time to describe his argument. I was questioning his argument I was not trying to insult the man himself. Sorry, I hurt your virgin ears (or eyes).

Like the first sentence in my post I said I didn't think Franklin was a bad coach. In fact I think he is going to do an excellent job at Penn. St. But your topic came across to me as if you viewed Franklin as the greatest thing since sliced bread and the greatest football coach since Knute Rockne. True, Franklin won 69% of his games at Vandy but they were only 50% in SEC play last year and lost to all the good teams they played (including 23 and 32pt. losses) except a very depleted GA. team (31-27) that everyone was beating at that point in the season. So to say that he won 69% in the toughest conference in the country is misleading. Also last year their non-conference schedule was Austin Peay, UMASS, UAB and Wake Forest. That's not exactly murderers row that he beat. Also I was not "whining" about the longer schedules, I was pointing out that in 1890 or 1950 they played a lot less games so when you say they won 8 or 9 games that it is much easier to do it now than it was then. We see every year now how this team or that team has had 8-9-or10 wins in back to back seasons for the first time ever because there are more games now. Also my point about only needing to win 6 games to make one of over 30 bowl games is also correct, so to say he was the first to lead them to back to back bowl games is not a major accomplishment. Pat Fitzgerald at NW had done it 5 straight years there before this past year and everyone compare NW and Vandy all the time. Fitz also had a 10 win season in 2012.

To Johnny Ginter:

First I am not saying Franklin is not a good coach but:

"james franklin took vanderbilt (VANDERBILT) which had been a 2-10 team the year before he was hired to two consecutive nine win seasons (which vanderbilt had only done TWO OTHER TIMES since 1890 and never back to back)"

2 straight 9 win seasons since 1890?...big deal. How many games did they play in 1890? In 1950? In 1990? Teams play more games now. With a 12 games regular season and a bowl game (which you make with just 6 wins) that is 13 games. so he only had to go 9-4 two straight years.....big deal.

"three straight bowl games (vanderbilt had only gone to four other bowl games in the entire history of their football team, none consecutively)"

Again with only 6 wins needed out of 12 games, and with over 30 bowl games, I don't see that as a major accomplishment. What games did they play in? Did they win any "Major Bowls"? Did they even play in any?

"ALSO he was the first vandy coach to win five SEC games since ray morrison in 1935 jeeeeesus"

So he won 5 $EC games....I guess that you are one of the believers that winning 5 SEC games is some major accomplishment. All that proves is that Vandy sucked....we already knew that.

"my point is that a) james franklin is an insanely talented coach"

It doesn't seem to me that you have proven that case at all. AN INSANELY TALENTED COACH? And tell me how you justify that statement? Because your reasons stated above don't nearly prove that in my eyes. Are you Joking?

"absolutely DOMINATE Pennsylvania recruiting."

Granted he has done well so far in recruiting (2nd ranked class IN APRIL but....how many very highly rated classes does OSU have in the last 15yrs.? Including pulling some of the very best kids out of Pennsylvania. Franklin has been there 1yr. and you have no idea weather he will DOMINATE Pennsylvania recruiting.

Your article and you reasoning are absolute Bull Shit.   "jeeeeesus"

Actually I did watch the game at the time and cheered my ass off when App. State blocked the field goal. And I have seen the ending quit a few times,

But thanks for your reply and the rundown of the ending of the game....I can never hear about it, see it, or be reminded of it in any way enough...I always get a HUGE smile.

Also I love to bring it up to the SCum fans just to remind them of their pain.

Again, thanks for your reply....SCum lost to App. St.....:-)

"Chicago College of Physicians and Surgeons and The American Medical School"

I wonder if games like these are why Scum has the most wins all time.

"They open at home against Appalachian State almost seven years to the day of fledgling Big Ten Network's first-ever game broadcast."

I can't remember how that game 7yrs. ago turned out....maybe one of the SCum fans who frequent this board can enlighten me.

You are right about Plan 9 From Outer Space. But you probably knew that going in like I did....I loved it and laughed my A** off.

The worst one I saw at the theater was the first "Star Trek" movie. The worst one I ever rented was "Blood Sucking Freaks"....but in hindsight...that shouldn't have been a surprise.
