Loved the tribute to Deion as he high-stepped into the endzone.

Don't get caught drinking the Kool-Aid. Let's see these guys play a few snaps before we hail them as saviors.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Oh but to answer your question (sorry!) I agree that it will probably end up being a 3:30 kick.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Even though I groaned the loudest when the Big 10 announced the addition of Maryland, I have become a bigger and bigger fan of the move the more I've learned about the program.  The whole "Oregon of the East" thing that Kevin Plank has going over there is great for the university, especially with Baltimore being a much better location than Eugene.  I'm really looking forward to this one.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

You are absolutely right and the other power conferences definitely have an uphill battle to fight here, however some conference-wide adjustments could be made to help dull the clear advantage the SEC has.  One great policy would be to allow oversigning.  Yes, I do believe the policy is stupid and shouldn't be allowed, but I think the same thing about nuclear weapons.  If someone else does it, the B1G/ACC/Big 12 have to do it just to keep up.  I'm not going to condone bagmen because of the NCAA but I'm sure other universities (USC) have set up similar situations.  This article already addressed the money issue, and ESPN will swing to where the money is.  It might take 10 years, but if these policies are implemented in the next couple of years there could potentially be a light at the end of the tunnel.

I know Urban choked with the playcalling last week, but he definitely made up for it today.  Granted, we were playing Kent State, but when Kent State opened in that Bear Defense all I saw us run were flare screens, quick outs, quick ins, and options.  We essentially dink and dunked them out of it.  Good adjustments by the coaching staff.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

I still have faith in Urban.  He choked against VT, but he will make the adjustments necessary to make up for the loss of Braxton Miller and the lack of an offensive line.  It also helps that the Big Ten just straight up sucks this year.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I still think we definitely have a shot at the East if Urban makes some changes with the playcalling (fingers crossed).  The talent is there, the coaching is lagging behind.  On Saturday, I saw maybe one attempted screen and zero Heuerman-over-the-middle passes that would have at least given us a shot of slowing down the VT pressure.

Of course, I have to stick with my original pick of Minnesota winning the B1G so...

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I mean, to be fair, this is probably Rutgers and Maryland's best opportunity to win the B1G.  Of course, when they do so, the entire world will say "look at how these outsiders dominated the B1G, further proof of its weakness" when aTm and Mizzou did the exact same thing in the SEC 2 years ago.

Of course, after this past weekend I don't think any of that matters anymore...

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Yeah JT has no athleticism, but it wasn't his fault that the playcalling forced him to face constant pressure the entire game.  That being said, I would've loved to see Cardale come in and chuck one up to Heuerman on a seam route since VT had no safeties but oh well...

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I thought Barrett made the best of what was abysmal play calling.  Obviously he has no arm strength (even the first half bombs were underthrown) and his INTs were absolute ducks.  However, there were multiple plays where he made something out of nothing with his legs and I appreciate the fact that he tried to make a play on those stupid seven step drop plays with tons of pressure and no O-line even if they ended up as interceptions.  

Barrett's ceiling is low due to his limited athletic ability, but he can develop into a great AJ McCarron type if he could get some help from his receivers and playcaller.  Thats my $.02 at least.

Comment 03 Sep 2014

While reading this article I truly thought this was the mentality of the Ohio State fanbase and was starting to get really annoyed/depressed.  I'm glad to see that the author is in the minority (no offense DJ) and the majority still love to cheer on their team.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

I still get goosebumps watching that blocked field goal.  It really was one of the greatest upsets in college football history.
