I hate ESPN, and I watch them a lot less now because of all the SEC talk, but at the end of the day B1G teams need to start beating SEC teams more often.
Yes, based on the '94 game.
So glad last year happened.
If the author of this post could change his username to Dbag3212 I think it would work better.
What do you mean? An African or European swallow?
This game wasn't good for OSU. FSU is a virtual lock for the 4 team playoff now, and we really need ND to lose another game. They do have some tough teams left, but if they win out they're in.
In the recent book discussion forum, someone suggested The Sports Gene. The section on marathon running alone makes it a good buy.
Basically, training matters, but without the proper genetics you're screwed.
I seem to remember big concerns about Maryland's WR's and the QB's for Cincy and Rutgers.
I would guess what has ND fans upset the most is when they decided to call this. It could be called on most plays, but you rarely see it.
I only played in high school, but I can say we practiced this. You have to make it look unintentional, and it almost never gets called.
Not sure what anyone else remembers from when they played, but I would guess almost everyone works on this.
We should be losing to lots of bad teams then. Why does Urban keep winning so much?
Great recommendation. Required reading for any sports fan.
Lots of great fiction here, but the Freakonomics books will change the way you look at everything.
That series went to complete shit. The first few are fantastic, then you get 800 pages of people throwing plates. And the final showdown was a joke.
Love King, but this went way off course.
I'm not sure if this is disrespect, but the two times in my life I've seen people in Rutgers gear I've thought to myself, "what the hell are you wearing Rutgers gear for?"
Wait a second - is our QB's full name Jim Tressel Barrett? Mind. Blown.
(I know it's Joe Thomas. As a Steelers fan, let me pretend.)
Winston is a complete POS, but do we want him suspended this Saturday?
To get into the 4 team playoff, we definitely need FSU and ND to get losses somewhere. After Saturday, I don't see anyone beating FSU, unless Winston does eventually get suspened. ND still has to visit USC and Arizona State.
So which school that covered up rape allegations in the past few years do I root for?
Whoops - meant Ole Miss.
I don't want Michigan to be the joke they currently are, but Les Miles? No thank you. Am I the only one who remembers the 90's? I need to see at least another decade of dominance to get over that.
1) FSU (the qb is scum, but still, undefeated defending champs)
2) Miss. State (give credit where it's due)
3) Auburn (I hate myself)
4) Oregon (I really hate myself)
The other candidates would be Baylor, ND, Auburn..... come on, if Ohio State keeps winning they'll be in this conversation in a few weeks. No way all those teams keep winning.
I wonder how many Ohio high school games drew more people this weekend? Perhaps all of them?
Saying we "should have" beat them last year doesn't make much sense. They had more first downs, more yards, more time of possession. Also Braxton completed a whopping 8 passes. They won - give credit where it's due.
But Urban won up there his first year - I do agree that he'll do it again this year.
The brewers don't recommend it sitting that long. At least you have it in the fridge.
Should Archie troll the '72 Dolphins and crack open a bottle of champagne every time a Heisman winner screws up his chance at a repeat?
Great comment. The people who say it's not as good now are strange to me. I think they just want to point out that they're cooler than everyone else because they've been drinking it longer.
That's exactly what I'm saying.
I would admit I don't know if sales numbers are available, but did anyone buy a Joe Bauserman jersey?
Also, the official position from Nike and everyone else involved is that they choose those numbers at random. The whole system is really just hysterical.
