Will soon need to adjust that list to add two more - win over Alabama and a national championship (although technically both of those will be in 2015).
I can't imagine - sucks, but hopefully he'll at least get the education out of it. Good luck and you'll always be a Buckeye!
I think a big part of this has been the bowl expansion to include so many mediocre teams. I know this article focuses on just January bowl games, but I've heard many SEC fans refer to their overall bowl record as if that proves their total dominance. If Pollack and the rest want to pound their chest when Texas A&M beats Northwestern in the Meineke Car Care Bowl (played in Texas, btw) be my guest, but that won't prove to me that the SEC is so superior as to go require every team being ranked in the top 10 like we had earlier this year.
Well said - the hypocrisy of the NCAA continues to amaze me. It's an organization that has in its power the ability to make a lot of positive change, yet they spend most of their time investigating butt dials to recruits and too much cream cheese on a bagel.
I think (hope) the advance of the playoff system, plus the consolidation of power by the 5 major conferences will eventually yield to some positive change.
Big hand of applause to UFM as well for using his platform to call out the NCAA. He is a class act.
I want that "Game Day Experience Video" - I could use it to pump myself before every game.
Not sure why Harbaugh would go back to college - he seemed pretty intent when he left Stanford to go to the "next level" and stay there. He's also one that would be able to get another head coaching offer somewhere next year if San Francisco decided to let him go.
Switzer is one I could never figure out - his players all love him, but he always appeared to be so angry all the time on the sidelines.
Chip Kelly seems like he would be a blast to play for - just watching how excited he gets on the sideline.
He does seem like one of those coaches that rarely gives praise, but when he does makes you want to keep working harder for it.
The list of coaches I would hate playing for would have been a lot longer, maybe for another day. But yes Jimbo would be on there (can't imagine many coaches that would less have your back if you weren't a starter). If Kiffin were still a head coach he'd be up there too.
I'm super happy he's with us, but always thought it was a terrible move by Penn State not keeping him. Their loss = our gain.
My thoughts about UCF's chances:
Awesome - I need to tell my wife to do something cool like that for me.
The ESPN 30 for 30 really shed light onto how much he really loved his players and cared for them - Clarett especially.
I was thinking of him too - though I'm not sure if "Miracle" is what does it and I'd just like to play for Kurt Russell.
Looking forward to getting him on campus next year - in the meantime he seems to have stepped up as being a great recruiter as well.
Agree with the above - about 80% to 20% if not even more (hard to say since Wisconsin fans never had anything to cheer about). They said attendance was around 61,000 with most sections filled up.
Bosa's award next year.
Ray Guy Award to Hackett from Utah - Cameron Johnson should have been up there too.
Imagine the stats EZE would have been able to rack up in a more "traditional" offense (i.e. one without a running QB)? Could have gone for over 2,000. That being said you can't really just add the yards JT tallied because the ability for a QB to run the option does help open up running lanes.
Congratulations - both well deserved!
