Changed my mind
VERY well said.
Why do those games get free passes but we penalize the SEC for UT and Auburn?
Because it makes it easier to say the B1G is better if we ignore results we don't like. Like you said, it's too early to pick best at anything right now. The best player, best team, best conference, etc...the sample size is just too small right now.
Edit: Jackson at #1
MVP = Most VALUABLE Player.
While JT is indeed MVP worthy, Jackson is far more valuable in terms of where they would be without him. JT is working with 4 and 5 star players, Jackson is working with mostly 3 star players and looking out of this world doing it. I
If not for Jackson I would agree with the OP, but as of now it's gotta be Jackson at #2 and JT at #2.
Might want to slow your roll man, the writers are quite aware what division NDSU is in. It's not the first time, nor will it be the last, that an FCS school gets points in the AP poll.
I think people are a little too high on Herman. He's only been a HC one season. What if Houston implodes and loses 4-5 games this year? People were high on Charlie Strong, Ty Willingham, Brady Hoke, etc and look what happened. IMO, you really can't throw a HC in the "Top 10" arena until they've been on the job more than a few seasons.
7) Can you believe what (insert some analyst who said mean things) said about us? What a hack!
Yes because vandy and Kentucky are such great teams. Lol
And so are Purdue, and Indiana, and Minnesota, and Rutgers, and Maryland.
What's your point?
Sec had favorable matchups in the bowls last year. Auburn got to play in their backyard. Before the bowls, even the espn hacks including finebaum said the sec were down last year.
I'm so tired of hearing the "favorable matchups" crap. They, the SEC, do NOT determine the bowl match ups. Make all the excuses you want, but more often than not, the SEC backs it up on the field when it matters.
Don't believe everything that espn says.
Or logic, but whatever works for you.
I still think that's a bit of a stretch too...I think saying they were equal is a bit more realistic.
You just described two completely different things. Kentucky fans bragging about finishing last in "the best" conference is not the same as rooting for Wisky if it benefits OSU.
Skip Bayless is still getting a paycheck? There went my happy Tuesday.
App State is an FBS team...they have been for a few years.
Are you on medication? If not, you may want to look into it...
Awlins? Is this your duplicate account? Or is this ScrewTheBlue?
EIther way, you and your multiple personalities have no clue what your are talking about.
Someone alluded to it earlier...people are only going to take so much. When cable companies start offering a la carte options, and they will, this crazy pricing ESPN is shoving down people's throats will come back to bite them in the ass.
Pretty sure he was being sarcastic.
Agreed, plus one for the excellent gif.
He is a fan of ESPN, but that is a different discussion
Disagree, but that is indeed a different discussion. Just don't call me a michigan fan.
Jesus people, he gave an opinion...he didn't kick your dog. Disagree and move on. Why does every analyst who offers a contrary opinion have to be an idiot/moron/dickhead/hack etc but when they say something we like, they are full of integrity and must be taken seriously?
Here is my first(and what I thought would be only) post on this subject. What did I say that was so bad? I gave an opinion(that can pretty easily be backed up on this thread alone) that SOME of our fanbase gets all bent out of shape ANY time an analyst says something even remotely negative about OSU. I didn't call anyone out personally, I made an OBSERVATION, which many others agreed with. I only started slinging mud when others started coming after me with worthless strawman arguments about ESPN and the delusion that I am some sort of UM fan(go find proof please).
Que CincyOSU's defense of MI in 3.2.1...
You wonder why I respond angrily??? YOU are insulting ME!
Here's the beauty of the internet, it's written in pen not pencil. I CHALLENGE you to prove that I "defend" UM. Please, find something. Here's a fun tip for you, and your little brother Awlins, you're allowed to respect you rival, yet still hate them at the same time. Most rationale adults know this.
What are you talking about? I've barely commented this summer. Like many others, you suffer from selective memory.
