Keep in mind that we're talking about a generation that thinks the prequels are the superior trilogy.
These lists seem so random and usless in most cases.
Pretty sure this is a list intended only to smear schools that make in-roads on the Ivy League in some facet. Ohio State was atop the list for several years, which not so coincidentally occurred at the same time as its rise in the U.S. World News Report public universities rankings. Illinois is a helluva school, and the shitbags at Princeton were like, "Hmmmm, looks like we need to knock those jerks down a few points..because, you know, frats and such."
Every school parties. Harvard and Princeton just do it with more cocaine and less frats.
Black jerseys are just a way for Nike to cash in on the inordinate number of overweight, middle aged white dudes sitting around with $50 bills burning holes in their cargo shorts who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the latest t-shirt that sorta looks like something that amateur athletes wore on the field that one time.
I have been a fan of virtually every alternate uniform to date, especially the chromes. A black jersey?! It's a money grab, and this aggression will not stand, man.
T-shirts don't bring recruits.
This is so difficult for me. Hell is going to be one crowded space some day with these shitbags.
Believe me, we're only #1 because of our brand. #TCU #Baylor #Top-5
I don't doubt it, Tom. But you might want to chill out a little bit. Houston doesn't have a chance at winning much of anything - they don't have a brand. Just ask some of the other coaches in your new state.
He's definitely on Meyer's level...his salary level.
Ohio State has only lost 3 games in the last 3 seasons, having gone undefeated in the regular season twice.
In that span, TCU went 7-6 with a loss to Michigan State in the Who-Gives-A-Shit Bowl, 4-8 in 2013, and suddenly 12-1 in 2014.
You're goddamn right championships are built on a brand - a brand of winning and winning all the damn time. That is definitely the world we live in. Who the hell would want to live in a world where winning =/= championships?
Did he ever explain his team's 3rd down efficiency problem (2-13)? I don't really remember 11 instances of Alabama players running out of bounds short of the sticks. I do remember Ohio State going into that game as the 3rd or 4th best 3rd down defense, though.
Woody's sipping a Mai Thai. It's Bo who should be rolling in his grave.
Definitely the pasting of Virginia Tech. I half-expect Ohio State to be leading 28-0 at the end of the first quarter.
If you don't like Buckeye fans wishing you congrats on the national title, I'm sure Baylor would love to make use of your services.
He's kind of right in one sense. If we were talking about Texas and Oklahoma with those same records, there is no doubt in my mind they would have actually gotten the playoff nod over Ohio State. Until the clock ticked 0:00 in the national championship game, Ohio State was treated in the media as though they were a division 2 school for the past 10 years. Not a single ESPN broadcaster picked Ohio State over Alabama. Ohio State's defense was given no chance against Oregon. And the fact that the discussion was that contentious between Ohio State and freakin' TCU and freakin' Baylor is historically hilarious.
So, for Briles to suggest that Ohio State's ace in the hole was age...I can see where he's coming from. Even his own league treats him like that on a yearly basis. For example, the Big XII doesn't have equal revenue sharing because Texas and Oklahoma feel they generate all of the revenue and have the right to keep as much of it as they want (this is in stark contrast to every other league in college football).
On the other hand, the college football pollsters were prepared to put Mississippi State and Ole Miss in the playoff TOGETHER...so, in light of that Briles is a raving lunatic.
So, if we combine all of his post-loss comments, what Nick Saban really wants is to play a 1-game season, that game has to be the national championship game, it has to take place nowhere near any event that remotely relates to the NFL Draft, and he doesn't want players on his team that are capable of playing in the NFL...but he wants the fans to give 110% because that matters more than anything at a football game. All of this together will all but ensure victory.
I hope that never happens. Conference champions will always get left out of a 4-team playoff - teams that are very, very good, who would have done well in the playoff if given the chance. So, giving that spot to a non-champion sounds terrible. I don't care if you're a Pac-12, Big Ten, or SEC fan. Playoffs should be a NATIONAL championship.
As long as Zeke stays away from thousands of dollars worth of free CDs and cars...
I like to get my coals going in my Weber kettle, then pour myself a drink. By the time I need to freshen up my glass, the coals are ready for grilling. By the time for the 3rd, the meat's done.
I don't know of this "convenience" concept of which the others are speaking. Grilling is a pastime...time being the key root word here. And I have my own timing system. I've been grilling on charcoal for about 10 years now, and it's just the way I do it. You can grill just fine on a gas grill, I've seen it enough times to be convinced that heat = heat, and no one way is necessarily better. But I enjoy making my fire, relaxing with a few drinks, controlling the fire with vents and amounts of charcoal, and then cooking perfect steak on it. Grilling for me isn't an on-off switch.
Exactly. I mean, a lot of B1G fans might want the conference to do well just so we can stop hearing about how bad the conference is, and because we want to watch games against top 25 teams. But you are absolutely right, it's not the result of our "Northern culture," which isnt even a thing.
I wish the Reds would cheat every once and a while. Kidding of course....or am I?
So you think the Big Ten and Ohio State, who just whooped your ass in the playoff, is part of Nick Saban's farm system? How Bammer of you!
Ah, wow that's an old story, too. Where the hell was I in January?
That is some incredible stuff right there.
