Who said anything about wanting them to beat OSU? The point is a strong UM is better for the league and better for the rivalry. 

Do you really want you arch rival to be 3-8 every time you play them? Why not just make Illinois out main rival then...it'll have the same meaning.

Don't get me wrong, I was screaming like a little girl when that happened. But UM also recovered and was a top 15ish team when we played, and beat them.

Remember all the pain we felt during the Cooper years? Don't like returning the favor and ruining their special seasons.

I'll say it again....the people who want UM to be 2-10 every year fail to realize the ONLY reason this rivalry is what it is(and the reason you hate Michigan to begin with), is because of the tradition of excellence at both schools(combined with the close proximity). Do we really want our arch rival to be some school on par with the likes of Indiana or Purdue? Do you think it will continue to be "The Game" if it's a 10-1 OSU team vs a 4-7 UM team? Do you think this will still be widely considered the #1 rivalry in all of sports if one of the teams isn't even going to a bowl game on a regular basis? YOU might still get amped up for the game, but the national prestige will slowly die and this will just be another regional rivalry.

You can't tell me that the 2006 game didn't have a different feel to it than those games during the RR years. I'd much rather play an elite UM school and ruin their chances of making the playoff while strengthening our chances...it's moments like that that make this rivalry special. I for one don't ever want to lose that. Personally I hate UM even more right now because they are sucking the wind out of the rivalry with their mediocrity.

Only 4 players in the Top 50(51)? That's pretty good if you ask me. Who else would you have included? We have several players who could work their way onto the list with good years, but I don't see anyone else that should be on the list based on previous bodies of work.

The B1G actually got quite a bit of love on this list. I'm a little surprised the DE's from Neb and MSU were ranked higher than Spence or Bosa but at least B1G players are getting some national respect.

Comment 31 Jul 2014

The only two "official" preseason polls are the AP and Coaches and neither had us #1. Some site like Bleacher Report may have had OSU #1, but those are independent sites. The only two polls recorded in the record books are the AP and Coaches(I guess you could say the BCS as well before this year).

PSU tanks the season he will be begging for the "lower tier" players once the commits start looking elsewhere.

This is such a common myth. It's very rare that a commit changes his mind because a team has a bad season. In PSU's case it's even less likely. These kids know the situation PSU is in and are likely being sold on playing time and being a part of rebuilding the program. Even if PSU goes 3-9, I wouldn't expect a mass exodus of recruits.

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Going from 1 to 2 is also doubling. If ESPN had us outside of the top 10 you might be on to something, but complaining about being a top 5 class, just because other sites had us top 3, is complaining for the sake of complaining. Its like being mad you won $100 instead of $102...is it really that much of a difference?

And why are you conveniently ignoring the 2010 and 2011 years?

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Are you REALLY complaining that one site has us ranked, on average, at 5.3 over a three year span? That's a whole TWO spots lower than Rivals and Scout....oh the humanity!

Come on man, even if you hate ESPN you have to admit that's a bit a of a reach.

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Hey I don't like ESPN's recruiting either(I prefer Rivals and 247)...just saying they aren't as far off as you may think.

Now just to show I can be a good sport, here are the average rankings in the Urban Meyer era.

Scout - 3

Rivals - 3

ESPN - 5.3

Comment 28 Jul 2014

The last 5 recruiting classes average ranking on ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. I didn't include 247 since they have only released a composite ranking that last few years.

Scout - 5.8

ESPN - 7.8

Rivals - 9

As you can see, the facts don't support your claim.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

Well, you can't exactly punch an opposing player and think you're going to have a job the next day.

Comment 23 Jul 2014

Did it say how old he is? If he's only 16 he might luck out and get charged as a juvenile meaning prison might be off the table. Either way, his once promising football career is likely over or at the very least cause him to take a very different path.

Comment 22 Jul 2014

What are these people smoking to think Iowa, Missouri, and Minn have top 10 Non conf schedules or better than OSU? How is FSU not #1? This list is awful. 

Comment 18 Jul 2014

4.39 is blazing fast...but it's considerably slower(I use the term slow loosely) than 4.26. I was wrong about Shazier, I had him mixed up with another player. My main point is not that OSU players are slow...only that the home clock is always faster that what players end up "officially" running.

Comment 18 Jul 2014

Roby and Shazier didn't run close to those times at the combine though. The home clock is always a little fast.

Comment 18 Jul 2014

I agree, not sure how this is something to be proud of.

That being said, I really don't buy what that writer is trying to sell. You can tell by the style of writing that he/she is not an credentialed journalist.

Comment 17 Jul 2014

I think this is a generational thing(granted I have no idea how old you are). Personally, I really don't like noon games. The atomosphere is dead and it clearly shows on TV and at times on the field with the players. Night games and even 3:30 games allow for the anticipation to build...especially for marquee games. I get the noon time slot is part of the B1G/OSU tradition but at some point you have to get with the times or you'll be left behind.

Has there ever been a poll question on this topic?

Comment 16 Jul 2014

If you lose your last game you are not one of the  best 4 teams,ever.

Wonder if you would feel this way if OSU lost in the B1G title game to an undefeated (insert highly ranked team name) in a game where (insert star player) did not play but would be available for the playoffs? Would you immediately dismiss OSU from the playoff discussion?

Comment 16 Jul 2014

1) Read what you wrote. You can't "joke' about something, then claim it's starting to happen, then say you're joking.

2) As of this posting, show me where CINCYOSU brought up ESPN in this thread...this might take you awhile.

3) My name isn't Matt and I've never posted on Scout, the only other account I own is on Bucknuts(never go there anymore) and I have the same username. But think what you want if it helps you sleep.
