Well, he took one of the worst teams in the Pac-10 and made them a top 5 team by his 4th year. You can make fun of his borderline Aspergers all day long, but give credit where its due.
If ever there was cause to temporarily allow jiggly gifs again this would be the case. Perhaps Jason can make a deal with google for this thread only...
My God, what do they put in the water at your school?
I guess I should say the ending of him with his kids was filmed in the first season to keep them the same age for continuity
I see...yea that makes sense.
Furious - The producers knew two years before the finale when the series was going to end...it wasn't one of those situations where, like some shows, they find out halfway through the season and have to scramble to write an ending. And the ending was not filmed in the first season....all you have to do is look at the actors, it's clear they had all aged 10 years. The producers knew how it was going to end from the get go, they just didn't know what path would lead them there, but the ending was filmed along with the rest of the last season.
This was one of my favorite shows too, and I actually liked the last season but I hated the finale. You're right though, if you look at it in the context of "how I met your mother" it makes more sense...I just don't think a comedy should have such a sad ending. Either way, still a good show 95% of the time.
It's not just ESPN...that is the "official" tally, not what the school recognizes. Otherwise ESPN would have to say Bama has like 33 titles.
We all saw what happened, they all got owned in Bowl games and the whole fabrication fell apart
That's ONE year. One year is not a trend. You talk about the potential in the B1G as a positive, but don't give it any weight in regards to the SEC. The SEC, in particular the SEC West, is loaded with potential...good coaches, GREAT recruiting, and for the most part a solid nucleus of returning players. The B1G Ten, in particular the B1G West is on an upward trajectory but it's not there yet...give it a year or two and the two leagues/divisions could be neck and neck.
Nah. No Bias here
None at all. If anything it was very complimentary...one good bowl season does not erase the previous ten years of sub-par performance. They're saying the future is bright and the B1G has reason to be optimistic about the future.
Stop trying to make controversy that isn't there.
Or, it was related to OSU....
Here's a tip, if you're not funny....don't try to be. This was just bad man. Bad.
I think fraud is definitely an exaggeration based based upon your love for Lebron and the Cavs...not to mention a sample size of only a few games. Rose and Butler are great players who were beaten by great players...that doesn't make them frauds.
I don't see the big deal in this. If you just lost a Top-5 pick at QB and only unproven backups on the roster, and you have several high quality "free agents" available...why not stack the deck and improve your odds? Noone said these players are going to be given the starting job. They still have to compete, all the while learning a new offensive system with new players and coaches. Whose to say Coker at
FSU Alabama, Locke at Oregon, or Maguire at FSU don't end up winning the starting job? Saying these programs can't develop QB's is a pretty bold statement.
3M - Thanks for the catch, I didn't double check before posting...I was in a hurry.
We've self reported these kinds of violations, as has every other school in the country. Nothing to see here...
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Buckeye Jack is a Patriots fan...
I think Malzahn is a better coach than Tuberville.
fuck you and best of luck, don't let the door hit ya on the way out of town
Stay classy there fella, nothing like insulting a kid because he didn't choose the school you root for.
We make front page news for a week getting Mike Weber's commitment!
Well now you're just posting hyperbole. ESPN barely touched on the Weber story. If they had, it would have been blasted all over 11w as another example of how ESPN hates OSU...but it wasn't.
And who cares what page it's on? Its not on the main page for CBS or SI either. It's on the main CFB page, where it should be. You're trying to make something out of nothing here. Let's just sit back and enjoy Bama's misery.
Nellie - it was actually posted earlier than that...I think that time you saw was an update. I posted the link almost 2 hours ago and the article was 31 minutes old at that time.
Haha, I see my fan club is alive and well.
ESPN also has a $1 Billion deal with the B1G....one that will likely go up when the current deal expires.
I wasn't happy when the ESPN/SEC deal was announced either, but, to be fair, they have at least attempted to keep the SEC Network separate from the main channels. That's not to say the main channel still don't drink the kool-aid, but that was being done long before the ESPN/SEC deal was announced.
Like your gif above, ESPN, like it or not, follows the money and for a long time the SEC was the cash cow of CFB. The B1G, with their resurgence in the latter half of the year, is now more attractive thus they are now receiving more "love" from ESPN.
So it's used like it is in basketball? That's what I was getting at.
Either way...still impressive being that we are a northern team. Hard to compete with schools that can play/practice year round.
This is kind of misleading...OSU isn't ranked in any of the Top 25 polls. I'm not sure how baseball works...is RPI important or is this just another ranking to look at?
