I loved the article Ramzy. Thanks

Except you had one thing wrong:  "You're going to blink and we'll be in 2015, freezing and WAITING FOR NEXT SEASON!"

Come 2015...I will be watching The Ohio State Buckeyes whip some ass in the college football semi-finals on Jan. 1st, 2015, then on Jan. 12th, 2015, Crushing whatever team is unlucky enough to face Our Mighty Bucks in the National Championship Game.

"The Big Ten has various story lines that should not be, in any way, related to the SEC – at least, I hope."

Amen!

Although on Espin....that might be impossible for them not to make it about the S$C.

That was 5 minutes of my life I would like back. Wow, that was a new low (which is saying a lot) and I'm trying to be nice.

For those who say "well don't read it"......don't worry I won't.

But look at the score in the GIF you posted above. 2 runs have already been scored and it is just the beginning of the 3rd. inning. A typical high caliber soccer match might have that for the whole match....and then it would be a 1-1 tie.

Comment 31 May 2014

So you are implying a 1-0 soccer game is more exciting than a 5-4 baseball game? Can't say I agree. Yes, Soccer may have more player movement, but almost all of it turns out to be useless movement since teams rarely score. No, I am not a soccer hater, I am a fan of both sports. But it seems to me the reason soccer has not caught on with the viewing public in this country (it is going up though because of the influence of immigration from soccer loving countries) is because the game seems boring to Americans because of the lack of scoring. You will regularly see baseball games that have 10-7 scores (or higher in college or youth baseball) but how often do you see a soccer score of 5-4 in the MLS (or other major soccer league)?

Just my thoughts.

Wow! 4 posts huh? You must be really confident in your prediction. I'm glad you have such confidence in the O-line and Zeke. I wish I could share your optimism. I sure hope you are right.

I have no idea who will win the Heisman this year. Who would have predicted Manzell or Winston would have won the last 2 years. When health RB Todd Gurley of Georgia was the best college football player I saw last year. If he can remain healthy Gurley has a solid shot to take it home. I hope not though because I can't stand the $EC, and it would just give more ammunition for EsPIN to spew their biased and useless drivel.

I noticed that. That is one of the reasons I figure the B1G will go under .500. I really wish that the MSU and WIs. games were in their respective stadiums. It could have made all the difference in some national respect vs. the expected Espin ridicule.

 

But hope springs eternal and I hope the league can get some wins and respect in the big games. A little of that respect could be gained by the games you left out (OSU games and rivalry games).

First I am not trying to defend Bollman in any way, shape, or form. But just because Bollman (or any other coach) coached that position group means he recruited them. The decision on the players that are recruited are made by the coaching staff, and head coach, as a whole and another coach on the staff might have been in charge of recruiting certain O-lineman. Recruiting is split up into regions of the country and are not determined by which coach is in charge of a position group...i.e. Bollman doesn't recruit offensive lineman unless they are in his geographical area. He will be brought in to met the recruit but might not be his recruiting responsibility.

 

Simply put an O-line coach might not be the head recruiter of  any of the O-lineman he has on the roster. It is broken down into regions of the country, not position.

Thanks for the rundown Jervy. Looks like a few really good games with national implications (1-3) but the B1G as a whole really needs to win at least half of these games and unfortunately I don't see it happening.
