I had not considered your TCU/Baylor scenario, but without even tasting it I can say it is delicious.
I don't NEED a million dollars to buy a house, but it sure does make things easier and increase my financial margin of error.
I never root FOR them, but I actually prefer them to be undefeated coming into the Game. First, because then they are a top five team for us to beat. Second, because yanking the carpet out from under their hopes and dreams is so much more satisfying than winning a Hoke-fest. I love when the TSUN bandwagon grows all year and the confidence builds and builds and then BAM. Season over. Enjoy your meaningless bowl game.
Nothing against Cardale meant by this, but watching these games has reminded me that man oh man is JT good.
I'd like to see Jeffie Johnson and Patrick Wise get some touches against VT, PSU, or TSUN.
Because if we had not obliterated Wisconsin 59-0 we would have been sitting home.
Seriously. If we'd won say,31-13, still a blowout, we would not have a championship.
The more ranked teams on your schedule, the better. And it is best if those ranked teams are big names. Beating a ranked TSUN or Penn State simply counts for more in the minds of human beings when they sit in a room and pick four teams. Beating a ranked Minnesota or Maryland just doesn't do it. Look how little respect beating Michigan State gets even though they've been a top ten team for multiple years.
We always want TSUN, Penn State, and Nebraska ranked as high as possible for the largest "mental bump" possible.
As does Solomon Thomas.
Of course, I guess his never happened according to the NCAA.
Storm Klein coming in at #16. Interesting. Did not know that.
A link if you are interested in what became of him. Caution- his crimes are very unpretty.
Ideal would be Virginia Tech winning every other game except the one against us, including the ACC championship game.
Exact opposite, I think. VT is very strong at corner. Double Thomas and leave everyone else one on one.
The deep ball isn't going to be happening. This game will be about good decisions in the read option and accurate short passes. It is all JT. The read option will be even more important due to the lack of depth at h back.
Awesome, thanks. Will give it a go.
Not where I work. Even in the 10+ inch days we were expected to be in.
Love Sedona and Flagstaff!
Oh yeah, love the whole state. Phoenix is actually my least favorite part, but it's where I could get a job to let me move.
That's part of it.....been in the DC area for the last 25ish years after moving out of Ohio, and I am done with winter. No more snow.
Moving to Phoenix tomorrow so I pinned there. Glad to see some fellow Buckeyes out there!
Oh and DJ,you leave Arizona alone. I'm moving to Phoenix tomorrow morning. In late July.
Gotta say, Dan Mullen's idea isn't a bad one. I think I would raise the gpa though. Make it 2.75 get the fifth year of eligibility. It shouldn't be easy and should reward higher levels of student in the word student-athlete. Meanwhile those toward the athlete side can still academic redshirt or use four years.
No need. If you don't see it in your post, you never will.
Yeah, um, okay.
