+1. That deserves an old school upvote.
Seems guaranteed. Why wouldn't he?
"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.
Well, at least it makes more sense than when he stopped a plane to talk to Wichita State during the NCAAA run last year.
+1. Beat me to the comment. That got brought up more than Herman's...
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.
No way he leaves this team before our bowl games.
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.
(Sorry, this is response to Oyster's comment)
I guess I'm wrong, but I love our regular jerseys and hate these. Ohh well, I guess times change.
I saw this headline and immediately thought, if Winston gets in, but JT does not, it's a travesty. That didn't happen, and I agree, these three seem like a fair group.
Can't wait for the "Film Study: Alabama" article!
And how about the D-line subs?? Carter was an important contributor, and Frazier had the game of his career. He looked like an all-american last night.
"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.
To be fair, Kent State is worse than many FCS teams.
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.
Yeah, they're probably from that other time that Barrett was on crutches with a lower leg cast at a cold home game during the early afternoon.
I agree completely. They will dare Cardale to throw and whether he can hit a couple of big 3rd down throws will completely determine the outcome of the game.
WHY ARE THEY ORANGE??
They look like they were made for the wrong OSU(s). I'm sure it's just the lighting... but still, that's not very scarlet.
I agree, he was going to go get free tuition, room, and board, and now he has to find a job or pay for his own tuition for a year? Sounds ideal...
