Im hitting on all cylinders right now. My big pick is L'Ville to the Final 4. I knew Villanova would lose, they do it every year. I am starting to feel bad for them. I was thinking about it last night and how Jay Wright always has really good teams that end up seeded 1-4 and somehow never manages to get out of the first weekend of the tournament. His winning pct is good, but I think they need to let him go. He must say something before the game that makes his teams nervous, because their shooting % goes down by half come March.
The Shield was one of the best series finales you will ever see. I can not think of many finales that did as good of a job as The Shield. I absolutely love that show, it is probably my favorite show of all time.
Yea, Hyde was straight mocking scUM as he was looking at their sideline at the time.
Yea, the standards seem a little high lol
FLA 2007 -- Worst night of my life being at that game. I will never forget the absolute ass whipping Urban gave that team.
My second worst is the game they blew against Texas in the Fiesta Bowl. At the time that was a "gain respect back" type of win and they had it in the bag. Dropped INT on Texas's final drive is what kills me the most.
Yea. Red Dragon is very good.
2011 ended a lot of streaks for tOSU. we would be on a 9 year win streak over TTUN if it weren't for that damn game!
Hannibal is not better than Silence of the Lambs in any way.
Taking Price off the offensive line after they turned into one of the best units in the country makes zero sense/
Yea, I stopped watching after 8th grade lol
I used to love sweet chin music. Shawn Michaels was my favorite, I was really disappointed when he hurt his back after Wrestlemania XIV and disappeared.
I wonder if Dexter Williams HS coach is going to go on the radio and blast Brian Kelly because he didn't let this kid know that it might be possible Alford leaves for a better job. How dare these coaches look to better their life situations by moving up in the world.
Yea, but Nick already know OSU is the place for him so Alford wouldn't have to work to hard on that one.
If these kids think for one minute that the coaching staff of a national title team is going to stay 100% in tact, they are just kidding themselves. Its not like the coaches are going to go recruit kids and tell them that they will probably be gone in a year or so, that wouldnt make sense. Coaching football is a fluid situation and is a high turnover type job and these kids parents should help them understand that. Weber will be fine.
Remember back to Vonn Bell and how one of the biggest reasons he committed was because of Everett Withers... his relationship with Withers was the deciding factor, supposedly. Well, I think it is safe to say that Bell was fine this year and perfectly happy without WIthers on the staff. Mike Weber is getting a full ride scholarship to play for one of the greatest CFB programs of all time, he will be fine.
Cardale. Cardale. Where does everyone get Cordale? It's like Car and Dale put together.
Webb played in the B1G CG against Wisky
I was at the Fiesta Bowl with my Dad. It was an amazing experience and I will forever have great memories of that game, but I was only 17. This is the first season I have been able to watch and re watch every game without having miss games for work, etc. and this title has no naysayers, just undisputed greatness!
They have been waiting so long for a championship, the person on his arm died, leaving behind a skull with thoughts of past glory in his eye. hahahaha
Offense: Paris Campbell and Curtis Samuel
Defense: Sam Hubbard and Darius Slade
edit: I hope a bunch of guys step up for PT. With as many guys as we have returning next season, we could equally be losing that many kids going into 2016.
Urban and Co. just schooled the best, most consistent coaching staff in Alabama and then completely out coached Oregon with a myriad of sophomores and a 3rd string QB. I for one am not worried about scUM and I doubt Urban is either.
I agree, they are going to be good. Lots of young talent on that team. Jones has fit right in with the other SEC coaches by putting together 40 kid recruiting classes haha. They have landed some studs on offense. Hurd, Malone and North will all be good ones.
Nothing would have helped that unit. Buffalo just went with quick drops and tore up our pass D all day. Anytime the QB was able t extend the play or throw quickly it was an instant completion. The back 7 was god damn awful last year.
The secondary was terrible because the safeties and CB's did not hold meetings in the same room. Withers undermined the rest of the defensive staff and there was no communication or chemistry as a result. Look at the difference between this year and last and how much more on field communication there is between the players. Withers WAS the problem and that is a fact. I also think the while Vrabel was a very good coach, LJ is better. He not only brings proven results of putting DL in the NFL, he brings experience and wisdom. I am sure he had a hand in the defense and was able to really help out two young coaches in Ash and Fickell.
I would love to see this defensive staff stay together as I think they are only going to get better, but i think Ash is probably gone after next season.
The majority of the turnovers in the final two games were self inflicted. I think it will be rather easy to clean up. Fluke shit like juggling the ball right into the defenders hands does not happen often. Clean up the mishandled punts/KO returns which killed us against MSU and MInny and we cut our TO's in half already. The other stuff like dropping the ball for no reason (Cardale) will not continue to happen.
Do you really think it's fair to reward OSU for beating the #1 & 2 teams in succession by making them play another game. I think 4 works, most years you are going to see a drop off after 4 anyway.
