That's a very UN Peyton Manning like play... wow
I thought he drove him intentionally but it was a close call...
well, there you go... I asked for the facemask and they showed it. that was a HUGE penalty.
Sure would like to see that facemask on Thomas... didn't see it on the replay. but they did say "prior to the snap." how does a guy face mask prior to the snap without that being a false start?!
It's a tough call. Some call that the "maroon zone" - too far for a figgie, too close for a punt. When the punt is downed inside the five the coach looks like a genius. When it rolls into the endzone you punted for 16 yards of field position and people discuss you on 'net boards. It makes me mighty glad I'm not wearing a headset on the sidelines...
It is an incredible film. How it did not go bonkers at the box office is hard to figure but now it's the Christmas thing to do. And yes, it makes me *misty* too. And why didn't it end with Potter getting busted for fraud and theft?!
Let's be honest: the reason is simple: Nick Saban is a control freak who wants to control everything in his program. Ever. Last. Detail.
The petition only makes the Puppet Masters at ESecPN gleeful ... "Look, they're watching and talking about us!" Remember, to those sorts there is no such thing as bad publicity. What's bad is when no one is talking about you. It's the Jerry Jones school of PR.
I don't watch him and I'm not going to watch him. But I would admit that after the last Sugar Bowl I did stop by the endzone where the ESecPN set was and along with a few hundred other (delighted) Buckeye fans we shouted so loudly at MM that he couldn't be heard on the air. And what we were shouting was not kind...
Then Dane S and Cameron H came out of the locker room to be interviewed and they high fived a bunch of us hanging over the rail. It was amazing. And wonderful.
If you're smart enough to know WWE ain't real wrastlin' you're smart enough to know MM is doing the same thing: putting on a show.
Born in the hospital on the campus -- a couple of hundred yards behind the Shoe! You don't get more Buckeye born that that. Dad got his degree and moved south to the new job. Lived in the south all my life. Now make DFW my home. Meet Buck fans all the time. Love my Buckeyes and love living in the South. Was at the game in Austin in 06 and saw us silence the crowd with a big win - so much fun.
Generally I find Seth Davis to be pretty fair and insightful. Hard to argue with his comments here. And it's hard to figure that we wouldn't improve a little by playing some teams with a little more to offer than Sacred Heart. In Thad I trust but I think Seth makes a good point.
Pretty sure that's not the work of us Buckeyes. We LOVE coach Hoke!
You're my aerodynamic with a skunk weasel on your head. He's good to go as he is.
31 yards. Bucks win 59-6
Will Maryland wear some sort of eyeball bleed inducing unis Saturday? if so they may have to overcome Jabba the Hoke without my support...
There's another thread linking to a Georgia paper making the argument for Georgia with two-losses in the mighty SEC to be taken over other one-loss teams. Vomit.
Spot on. Think about it - the committee doesn't have to reveal ANYTHING till the final. But oh no - we get an "update" every week that just makes for tons of talk and drama. ESPN and talk radio must be lovin' them some CFB playoffs!
Everyone else is weighing in with their opinion so I'll give mine too - I don't think FSU belongs. Lots of wins over teams that aren't very good and their wins are by the skin of their teeth. Undefeated isn't enough for me (just ask Marshall).
Also think MSU is out. Right now they have one win over a ranked team. MSU's inclusion is clear proof of the SEC effect I think. They've beaten a bunch of teams that WERE ranked but aren't now but somehow that still counts. That doens't work for me. I'd take TCU or Baylor over them.
Think it'll play out and we'll be in if we take care of our business. Sure am glad we have a B1G championship game still. That may be exactly what we need to cinch the deal.
Am delighted that we will have the opportunity to shut down Mr. 400 Yard Rusher in front of the nation, proving that our D goes with our O: one of the top four in the country!
May the good Lord bless you as you know the joys of raising a child. And may his first words be "I-O!" to your "O-H"!
Kannell has been w/us a while on MIke & Mike and he is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the SEC: the only realistic voice at the WWL.
If you're best wins are Aubie and Arky you aren't a Top Four team. Period. And don't give me the transitive property of Arky over LSU over Wiksy ... you can do that all day and end up with anything you want.
Those are not signature wins. They don't say "Hey, we're one of the best teams in the country." A&M beat Arky and Aubie! You ranking them in the top four?!
This is nothing but ESecPN brainwashing at work...
Miss State does not have a quality win... and yet continues to be talked about as one of the top four teams in the country... hard to believe.
Great breakdown. Makes you realize how complex this game is!
Have a friend who is a big Husker. Visited him and we went to Lincoln to see the school. Walking around the stadium and lo and behold a gate was open. He and his two small boys and me proceeded to head out onto the artificial turf to monkey around, play invisible football and make Heisman poses. At first I thought we might get in trouble but then I realized ... it's a football field. What are we going to do to it that would hurt it? Large men in pads pummel (and get pummeled) on this field every Saturday. So we joyously ran around like kids having a blast. No one seemed to mind.
Highlight of the day: standing on the red "N" at mid-field my friend asked me if I knew what the red "N" stands for. "Well, I think I do but why don't you tell me?" "Nowledge, my friend, we've got Nowledge here." I never see the red N that I don't think of that! LOL
