Will ESPN let their hate of the Buckeyes
Bucknut1994 has it covered.
That's a rather extreme stretch given the circumstance. It was a drunk college kid running from the cops. The same thing would have happened to JT Barrett...
I was reminded about Baker Mayfield fleeing the police and was wondering what his chances of surviving would have been if he had not been white... oh, and community service with a $480 fine.
Well, 1) he did get his face rammed into a concrete wall and 2) his punishment is in line with the crime he committed. Not sure how he got off easy "for being white".
OSU, TEX, USC, UGA, FSU, CLEM, MIA, and AL are
seven eight safe picks for Top 10.
You left someone off...
How many players did Woods compete against who won more than a couple majors?
That kind of proves what he was saying. You had a group of 5 or so golfers who DOMINATED the sport back in the day and whereas today, there is much more parity. For Tiger to do what he did when dozens of golfers are good enough to win a the Major level, it speaks volumes as to what Tiger accomplished.
While your opinion may be correct, that Jack played against stiffer competition, you simply cannot discount the opinion that Tiger's competition was just as good, if not better, given the way the game is played today. Is it better to play against 5-10 guys who can realistically win or 30-40 guys who can win on any given Sunday? Just because they have name cache doesn't mean they are/were better players than what we see today.
Farrell is a hack. .
....until he says something good about OSU.
Neither do I...
Matt Leinart, Vince Young, Troy Smith, Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford, Tim Tebow, Andrew Luck, Tahj Boyd, Teddy Bridgewater, Jameis Winston, Jared Goff, Deshaun Watson - that's 12 out of 175 QB's that managed to be at least considered a difference maker at the position.
What is your definition of "difference maker"? I've only made it to 2003 and found well over 12 very good college QBs, not to mention the number drafted into the league.
From 99-2012 106 of a possible 143 (74%) went undrafted. I choose that timeframe because most of the kids in the other classes are still in school. So no, I don't think saying very few E11 QB's amount to anything is being disingenuous.
And only 4%(give or take) of draft eligible NCAA football players are drafted each year so if 26% of THAT group goes on to play in the NFL then your whole argument is blown up.
I can't tell if this is supposed to be serious, or satire?
Who in their right mind wants to watch football at 11AM, unless it's your kid's JV game. My entire Saturday revolves around college football, so while I hate the 12PM games called by Beth Mowins, I really don't care when OSU is on....I'm going to be watching some sort of football anyway.
Shit not just them.
He was being sarcastic
Pissed me off last year when Jake Meyers and Trevon Grimes lost their 5th star during the last month of the recruiting cycle
We all knew this was going to happen....injuries and poor camp showings did them in. It's not a conspiracy when ALL recruiting services drop the same players.
while several Bama 4 stars got a bump up to 5 star.
Not true, they just had fewer players who dropped in the rankings.
Since 2011, ESPN has had Bama ranked #1 five times, Rivals six times, 247 five times, and Scout with only three #1 rankings. The outliers are Scout and Rivals. Maybe look at the facts next time. ESPN isn't the one inflating their rankings....they have just been THAT GOOD.
Money is more significant than conference/school bias.
Meaning it would be the height of stupidity to "hate" on a school/conference.
Maybe he's only making fun of the people warning of your impending participation.
That's kind of the same thing.
Why would I care? He's making fun of that line of thinking.
are you saying that 247sports is in league with nefarious sources to affect the class ratings of OSU now?
Come on, you know how it works. Recruiting sites drop an OSU recruit = conspiracy. Recruiting sites bump up an OSU recruit = this is the only legit recruiting service.
Meyers dropped because he camped poorly and Grimes dropped because of an injury....unless EVERY site was "in" on the fix, this is/was another non-issue.
Understand when making claims of nepotism, you are calling out the person providing the favors more than the person on the receiving end so essentially you're calling out Meyer's integrity.
That's still not nepotism.
Then that isn't nepotism.
Edit - Dupe
Fox College Football = CBS College Basketball
They are both trying to put square pegs in a round hole.
I feel the same way(although CBS BB coverage is pretty good)...its the same thing watching college football(ND) on NBC...it just feels off.
My only issue is the production quality. The HD quality is pretty comparable(maybe a bit better), but most everything else isn't quite as good as ESPN/ABC. Not to mention, FOX tends to make college games feel more like pro broadcasts imo.
I have mixed feelings on Gus. He is one of the best when it comes to CBB, but something just feels off when he calls football games. Don't get me wrong, when it's a legit big moment, he shines. But he also tends to make a routine 3rd down conversion sound like the first time he saw a girl naked...so it takes away from the feel of the actual big moments.
Did I miss something...did Slender get the boot? Again.
