To me this is similar to when the guys took down the banner before the game. I actually love it. Is it good for the image of the school etc? Probably not, but if I ask myself if I look back on it fondly, I do (mostly because we won anyway). I'm glad he did it and to me it just adds more spice to the rivalry..
Just playing devil's advocate, but would it really be different than if he got hurt in the 7th?
No, but I remember calling my best friend as he was yelling "I'm running to central park, I'm running to central park, I'll call you later"
I'm not really a fan. While I love the thought of playing Nebraska and MD (I live in MD), I miss the old big east with Miami, VT and BC.
I think "thinner" conferences produced more parity which is good unless it is forced by rule changes (IMO).
The SEC is going to be really tough to conquer for long periods of time because the Big12 is no longer a real threat annually, the Big East is gone (Miami was always a threat from the BE).
I love college football, and the change hasn't slowed it one bit, but I do miss some of the old rivalries.
Rivalries take time, sometimes decades to foster, breaking them takes months.
I'm a little ashamed none of my fellow 11W'ers mention Bill Cosby!
I beleive Walk Out LB = Defensive Percy Harvin
I'm not sure why he would push for it. OSU has enough hype assuming we win. I actually think it would be a good thing if this was a noon snoozer. I've never been to a game in East Lansing but if the difference between a day and night game is like it is at the Shoe, I say play at noon. This is not to say that if I were Smith I wouldn't agree, but personally I would rather not make it more hostile.
Being from DC he has 2 local opportunities to see the Bucks this year, UMD, Navy. That should/may help.
In college Tebow was simply better than Smith, his record speaks for itself.
Big time college football is played on Saturdays. OSU is big time. I don't have any interest in Friday night games.
Logistically there is no way any of us who are coming west can make it.
The house is pretty modest all things considered. I don't know too much about Dublin real-estate but I can't imagine that home is more than 1 year's salary post-tax. I wish I could say that about my house!
I agree. I can see the water tower at the stadium from where I'm sitting (my house).
The stadium is only 40k or so. I would have thrown the largest OSU party ever for that game, crabs on the water then walk to the game. My ultimate OSU dream but it won't happen as long as OSU is drawing 100k per game. It's a great place to watch a game, but would honestly be overflowing if OSU were to play there.
UMD will play OSU at home but play PSU at FedEx. Playing home conference games off-site just shows the wrong mentality for a program like MD. The huge games at home are what brings people to the stands for the other games. I know there is $ involved but I bet I could make a business case for the long term benefits.
PSL ticket holders for the Ravens etc.
If you want to buy tickets today the code is PSLNVYOSU on ticketmaster.
I'm glad to see MSU step up. We need to have teams like them in the conference and we need to beat them or national championship talk is garbage. I would much rather have a great MSU team than a UM, so if it's MSU, PSU, OSU, Nebraska and Wisconsin for the next 10 years I'm good with it.
I actually agree with Switzer other than the priveledged thing. Why hold a kid's upbringing against him when you have an issue with his actions? Should we hold a poor kid's upbringing against him? I think not.
See my post below for the code,
I'm glad I could help. 10 more Bucks in the stands.
But we dont have a strong receiving corps
I bet there are about 110 teams that would trade entire receiving corps today.
I agree. NJ always has serious talent but it often goes out of the area - Brian Cushing (USC) and Knowshon Moreno (UGA) come to mind but there are plenty of others.
It would be great to keep those guys int he B1G. PSU has always scavenged DE, MD, VA, NJ and NY but it isn't like OSU in Ohio.
The code is PSLNVYOSU
They assign seats "randomly", we kept trying and ended up wtih section 145 for $85. At first they offered section 553.
I was at Cal and I'll be at MD but it won't be so obvious. Walking in at Cal I heard a dad dressed in bear gear tell his son "This is what big time college football is all about" as he was looking over a crowd of OSU fans cloaked in scarlet. It was like the circus came to town.
MD will just be everyone wearing red/scarlet so it won't be obvious until we score. I'm glad we play them early. MD could be undefeated going into the game but could conceivably lose every game from OSU until the end. Similar situation with Rutgers.
I'm not saying you're wrong, but why do you feel that way?
Almost the entire starting team was from Tress or Fick 2 years in. The notable exceptions (off the top of my head are) Bosa (a true freak), Spence, Marcus, Schutt and Dontre (who had no equal on the existing team). All of them were 5* players coming out of HS hold Marcus.
That seems pretty reasonable to me. In fact I would like to have seen more, Mitchell, Johnson and Marshall.
Why do I have the feeling Greene knows how to block? He's huge, and he played in the option at GT.
Would love to at least see what he can do.
I just hope Brax hits guys in stride. There were soo many play last year where guys had to make catches and break stride, go back or dive. It seemed like we left a lot of yardage on the field. Obviously he has the weapons around him, I just hope he can use them.
Can you peel the stickers off of the circular one? I don't think I could do it in 1:04 anyway.
