Beat me to it. Well done.
oh to be 17 again...
Why would the B1G add Oklahoma? It's not contiguous or an AAU school. If you also add Kansas that would solve one of those problems but we wouldn't be adding any recruiting area nor would we be adding many TV's.
This is going to sound crazy but I think Maryland and Rutgers fit better than Oklahoma and Kansas.
Full disclosure - I live in MD and work in NJ.
Does anyone else think that recruiting 2017 so long before 2016 takes some of the fun out of it as a fan? It's like getting a Christmas gift and then not being able to open it until next Christmas. As much as I would like to see a bunch of 5* players commit to the 2017 class the realization that they have 2 seasons left in HS dulls the enjoyment. Sorry not trying to be a downer but for some reason this class (2017) seems like we're way ahead of where we were in 2013 and before.
The comments are interesting. For example:
>> Bottom line is the Big 10 is a tougher conference than the Big 12 right now. Neb is nowhere near getting a conference title again. At least in the Big 12 it was close and a realistic chance bc of the weak Big 12 North Division.
I agree Gonzo was great but didn't he do most of his damage in 2006?
I would take Thomas and Jalin over Gonzo, but I Gonzo was great.
You can find them at a HVAC supply store if you're like me and want instant gratification.
9/11/1999 vs. UCLA. I don't remember much other than watching the UCLA fans in the corner of the temporary bleachers looking very scared when we scored.
That's got to be a record for highest margin of victory over anyone's first two games.
Let us know how it works out. I've replaced a couple and it should take you less than 20 mins and less than $40.
Your risk is low and you'll feel good about getting it working again. At least I did.
O Pace is the best college tackle ever in my opinion. I'm not sure who the other 2 from osu would be.
If/when they win another nc, I would only take Barton, Mangold, Hawk, Ginn, and Youboty. 2005 was really good, 2015 is great.
No. Sans Joey he will start by week 3. With Joey he may not start but he will play a lot. He may not have the upside of Joey (who does?) but he is very prepared on day one. He's a special player with huge advantages over other big time recruits. He will not be surprised at anything freshman year because he's watched his brother go through it and he's been around the program for so long.
I didn't say there was no way they would get in over a conference champion. Had Missouri beat Alabama Baylor would have been in. At least no plays a real schedule.
so you want to penalize no because of what they "think"? Doesn't make a lot of sense.
But did that mean FSU facilities > Osu facilities? I hope not.
I agree re: the boner for ND, but I think (I could definitely be wrong) that they get points for picking correct CBs earlier. My point is that he would be doing it to his own detriment.
Why? Why should Baylor be allowed in but not ND? Assuming they have the same record, ND's SOS will almost always be higher.
You don't think EzE, JT Barrett, Joey Bosa, Jalin Marshall etc were the type of players he wanted?
IMO the 2013 class could go down as the best class in the history of OSU football.
Spence and Marcus were both in the 235-245 range and played a lot.
Cooper is already there and has a year to grow. Size will not be his issue. Agree the guy is a beast.
Bosa will obviously see the field as a freshman.
We're going to lose a lot after this year, I think all three will play.
Totally agree. It's not a once in a lifetime opportunity because he's played with him at STA and he may again in the NFL.
In theory Joey will have 1 more year in the NFL which will be worth something like 5-10 million. He can always go back to school but time marches on and you can never get it back.
Though I do agree with what Gary Pinkel said about Notre Dame.
Why? To each his own right? Pinkel used the NFL as an example, but college football is way better than the NFL.
They will both play the same number of FBS teams.
There is a committee to determine who gets in.
Don't forget Lee, Perry and Apple.
On O we can play to the strengths of our players. On D the other team will go directly at our weakness. If we have a weak corner they will destroy that guy until we compensate which then exposes other areas. See MSU against Conley last year as an example.
There's a lot of dust on that case...
Italics my boy, italics.
I totally agree and I think one of the worst match ups around the country is with Arkansas. In theory if we have a weakness on D it is the down lineman. Arkansas will have one of the best run games in the country and will limit the number of times we get the ball. I'm not saying I think Arkansas will get there or would win, but some teams who appear to be great teams just don't match up well, see Oregon. GTU is another team which could give us fits. With that said if we get up by 2 scores neither will have a chance.
