He's solid, and it can be a great pairing if there's actual drama in the game.

He finishes spreading the mayo...does he stick the landing on the turkey...YES!!! HE'S DONE IT!!! I could also do without this style of commentating...

They're going to run the ball tonight. They go for 330+ per game, you're not going to stop them. However, you contain them, stop the playactions on third down, keep drives to a couple series. If you can limit their scoring and keep them to 24 or less points, that's a win tonight. Don't worry about style points, contain the run, let Cardale look like he can step in, we're playoff bound.

The Big 12 is benefiting from Texas and Oklahoma not having great years. Normally, two of these three would have two losses and be out of it. Kansas State isn't at all impressive. Lost to an okay Auburn team at home early and lost to TCU, not exactly the best two loss team in the nation here.

To be fair, coming out of high school, Cardale was a pro style quarterback. That said, watch what he's done as a Buckeye Mopup Quarterback, guy can run the ball, and Griese is a douche.

I got offered and passed on $300 for 1vs2 (I was a broke college kid, lacked the funds). 450 for a blowout is ridiculous.

Surely a man who coaches sans a headset can't possibly send in a signal to go Super Punchout on the opponent, could he? And yes, I'm calling him Shirley.
Comment 22 Nov 2014 How is this not unsportsmanlike?
Comment 22 Nov 2014
I think a lot of it was predicated on touches being more distributed between all the backs plus Miller. When Braxton went down, all bets were off really.
Comment 22 Nov 2014
Last game of my senior year. Pryor threw a pick on the first series, made the tackle on the 15, Michigan blew the field goal, and the game was pretty much over. Good times, good times.
Comment 19 Nov 2014
I personally was screaming at the tv for Meyer to bench Dontre in the second quarter of the MSU game. I fully admit that was a mistake now. Same probably applies to Smith. If the coaches see it Sunday through Friday, let them make the call on Saturday. We need these guys to be ready and have experience for a B1G championship and a playoff run, that takes patience.

I think the SEC only gets one team in at the end of the process. They're deep, but the closest thing to an elite team they have is Alabama, and Sims is no AJ McCarron.

Which wasn't that great to begin with.

At any rate, our best case scenario is Alabama and Mississippi State both lose their rivalry games, which would pretty much lock us in (assuming we take care of business). TCU looked beatable yesterday by a very, very bad Kansas team playing with an interim head coach. Baylor has not impressed me much, but their schedule is softer than Charmin. I think Oregon wins out, but they do tend to lose one or two they shouldn't every year (and they already have the one with Arizona at home).

Even the last Saturday thing is brand new. Just started with the B1G championship game and the extended B1G season. Prior to three years ago, it was the Saturday before Thanksgiving, which is NEVER the last Saturday in November.

If you had to verify this with sources, I can't imagine the lengths to which you go to ensure water is, in fact, still wet.
Comment 13 Oct 2014

Look at 40s for most high school prospects who eventually make it to the NFL, they're usually timed a bit slower coming out of high school (even skill position guys). 5.69 for a lineman is nothing to worry about, 10 yard splits are more important, and he's a collegiate weight program away from 5.2-5.3.

Comment 03 Oct 2014
The man can coach when the talent matches his scheme. It's guys like Meyer that can adapt to misfit talent and still win that are special.
Comment 03 Oct 2014

Absolutely. In the computer age, we'd be completely screwed, but with a committee that wants to see the four best teams at the end of the year, I don't think the Week 2 loss with a first year starting quarterback completely screws us if we roll over Michigan State and Nebraska/Wisconsin with ease at year's end.

We need a lot of help (including the Pac 12 beating up on itself, which is looks primed to do this year, and a couple of Ess-Eee-Cee teams looking like the crapola they truly are), but it could happen.
