"In fact, in a lot of ways, Ohio State is a Midwestern version of Florida."

No, just no.

I agree with a number of the other posters, as an outsider, how can you *not* pick Bama in this game.  Despite the B1G championship, we've still got a very big unknown in the QB position, perhaps if JT were there I would get worked up about the "lack of respect," but shit, we've got a second game starter taking on the consensus best team in the nation, and of the past decade.  Can OSU win?  Sure.  Should we be favored, or even in the game?  No way.

And I read Pelini's rant; probably doubled my liking for the guy.  Clearly he cares deeply for that team.  Would you rather have someone who treats players like chess pieces?

Definitely good commentary on there, but I'd love to see a full Xs and Ox breakdown article (like we picked up before the VT game from their boards).  Also, I have to say I was depressed to see some posters buying the Wisconsin conspiracy theory arguments to account for 59-0. I suspect Bama and OSU fans are more similar than different, but still, let's be real about what happened in Indy.

Sorry, I scanned the top page of the forum and didn't see anything, hence the post.

And now all the fans who wanted him fired after the VT game can finally start celebrating.  Don't have to deal with having this unimaginative schmuck who just so happened to make our offense set new school records in two of his three years while installing a completely new offense, serving as the best QB coach OSU has ever had, and winning an award for assistant coach of the year.  Should be a fun party for them.

You should not confuse Michigan and Detroit's general funding situation with the university's.  The University of Michigan is doing just fine... they've got a little 8.4 billion dollar endowment (top 10 across all US universities).  Who knows where the football money comes from, but they can generally afford whatever the hell they want.

Good news.

"Kansas is expected to hire Texas A&M receivers coach and recruiting coordinator David Beaty to be the program's next head coach, two sources with knowledge of the hire told ESPN.com on Friday."

It's just sports, but still... next time you do something while 14 million people watch and cheer, let us know if it feels like this type of music & production is fitting or not.

Yeah, if you ignore the football aspect of it all, to successfully land a dream job that may only be available once or twice in your entire career (while competing with hundreds of other applicants), and then have it go to shit after you get it just has to crush your soul.  Not a happy time of life.
