I was at the Cal game as well.  I heard a father say to his son (both dressed in Cal colors) "This is what big time college football looks like" as there was a sea of scarlet entering the stadium.

The Cal fans looked so confused when the OSU fans started singing "We don't give a damn...".  They almost had a "what about us?" look on their faces.  I don't think they've ever seen anything like that invasion before or since.

It was great day for OSU.  Complete domination on the field, in the stands and with the bands.

I love the thought, the band have done so much for the football program, but the execution is just not good.

I will be shocked if that happens, not because he can't but because he won't want to.  I obviously have never been at his level in anything but I imagine having the desire to work your ass off after 10 years of world domination may get difficult.

You saw it with Phelps, he had already won everything there was to win before the last olympics and he had a "relatively" poor performance.  Fortunately he came back in Rio and reminded everyone who is boss.

I am the brother of a crazy woman, I can relate to Shelly's situation.

I thought this was the most interesting line of the article.

but the woman told investigators Mather was able to briefly digitally penetrate her.

One of my closest friend has a game day house about 200 yard from The Swamp.  I go to a game a year.  Saw the gsu game where gsu beat UF, 2 lsu games and a Tenn game.  Very cool.  The best thing I saw was the sportsmanship displayed towards the gsu fans after the game.

Funny when reading this I thought of my wife's alma mater before mine, and I played football for mine.

Umd, Rutgers, Delaware and PSU.  Obviously I grew up in the DE, MD, PA, NJ area.

And maybe he twists and knee while training... from what I've read they are arguing over when he gets the money not how much.  IMO he is risking a lot for what amounts to money in March vs. money now.  I've been around long enough to know there is definitely more to this story than what we read and I trust he has good counsel between his family and attorneys but at the end of the day he's not playing.

Rutgers will lose 4 games a year nearly every year before the season even starts.  Psu, osu, MSU, um.  That means they basically need to win 7 of the last 8 to get to 60%.  Not going to happen imo.  I'd say they are a step below md but even if they split with md they better hope they don't get Nebraska, Wiscy or Iowa.

i would be impressed if he won 60%, good luck to him.

My point was about potential not current status.  UCF isn't there right now, but they have potential.

I would argue FSU isn't in the same club as UF or Miami with respect to education.  Miami and UF are 51 and 47 - FSU is 96 UCF 168 per US News and World Report

Comment 24 Aug 2016

I agree with your assessment but I see this game playing out with Alabama controlling both lines of scrimmage and basically doing Bama things.  Running the ball and not allowing the run.  I will be shocked if USC was within 7 points at the end.

Comment 24 Aug 2016

The statue is a dumb idea but I believe UCF is a sleeping giant.  They would obviously have to get into a power 5 conference but it's a school of 60k in a talent rich environment with a relatively new on-campus stadium.  They are more like FSU and Florida than Miami.

You get a Mark Dantonio there and in 10 years they are as good as Michigan State.
