"I want me some glory hole"
Let's face it, this is an award for coaches who either inherit a mess and make the program competitive or overachieve with mediocre talent. Urban pulled this off in 2012, taking a team that went 6-7 to an undefeated season. Coach of the Year, right? Nope. The mess Bill O'Brien inherited at Penn State clearly weighed heavier than the record. Penn State was 9-4 in Paterno's final season, and his successor goes 8-4 in the following year and wins the Coach of the Year award - even after a home loss to the unbeaten Buckeyes.
If TTUN lives up to the hype, I feel that Harbaugh is a shoo-in for the award this year. It may be quite some time before a Buckeye Head Coach wins the COY award and yes, that is a good thing.
Not sure how you make it through school with a name like that. I'm sure that being big helps. Is it "Tooley-ow-poo-poo"?
Cael must still lose sleep at night knowing that he lost a MD guy like Snyder to the Bucks.
How old are those two dudes?
Hey Curt! I was looking for something from you after Kyle's gold to give those of us who don't follow wrestling so closely, a little perspective on such an incredible year. What past wrestler can you best compare to the run Kyle has had at his age?
Meanwhile Jedd Fisch has no WR commits for 2017. How is that possible?
Clearly these two guys didn't see the Jedd Fisch graphic. Honest mistake.
Jimmy followed up the two booms with a boom-boom in his khakis.
It's crazy to think he still has two years of college left. I'd seriously consider cutting weight rather than wrestle in Kyle's class this year.
If R. Lee Ermey was a football coach, he'd be Kerry Coombs.
It's still so disappointing to see how underused our passing game was last year. Three NFL receivers on the roster in Thomas, Marshall and Miller, yet they only averaged 4.3, 3 and 2 catches a game. Glad to see NFL teams plan to use these guys as more than just a diversion from the run game.
I think TTUN signed on with the wrong Michael Jordan.
I think that the media is practicing yellow journalism:
"containing news that is meant to shock people and that is not true or is only partly true"
National Title? They aren't even the best team in Michigan.
Bailey is a tiny man with a forgettable voice.
Who's In More Denial Than Us? Nobody!
I'm convinced he's wearing a Yarmulke. A black fuzzy Yarmulke.
Harbaugh is a pair of reading glasses away from looking like he and Springer could have been High School classmates. Apparently such unchecked enthusiasm causes rapid premature aging.
Cool, thanks. Didn't notice that!
Seems this Ginn was "Tiny" Ginn, number 13 and an End. Most guys in that era went by their nicknames even in the programs. OSU archives has awesome scans of most of these gameday programs online, but it's mostly ads and a bit on the opposing teams. Just a small roster of OSU's team with last names and numbers. Hard to locate much on these guys!
Kevin, you've got to find one of those old leather helmets and redo that side-by-side pic like that. Really cool, thanks!
A few observations about that old game footage. Telling the teams apart in B&W footage is nearly impossible. Apparently wool jerseys came in two shades. Dark and darker. Finally, refs in those days didn't trot around like the older dudes today. They hauled ass! They were certainly younger and more fit that the refs we have today. Funny to watch them just dive into the pile, rather than sit back and watch. Looks very much like club league rugby now - just with a lot more fans.
North Carolina should be 1089.50
"Are you fagged out when you wake up in the morning"?
Well there's an expression I've never heard before. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
