Because we've seen it first hand with our current HC, and the majority of your fanbase has the opinion that Jimmy is better than him.
That's no tree, its a freight train:
Urban actually set those expectations for them in 2012 when he went undefeated. Their delusion has them believing Jimmy is a better coach than Urban, so they have to aim that high. Will be fun watching those expectations come crashing back to earth this fall because Jimmy ain't Urban Frank Meyer.
Best part of this is, they recruited Swoopes instead of....................wait for it................................ JT Barrett.
Some do, I've seen even more examples of them turtling up in those situations. Former scUM QB Ryan Mallet immediately comes to mind.
Brooks was here.............
A Notre Dame fan vs a scUM fan?
I thought they outlawed Bum Fights?
If Derrick Anderson can make it, anyone can.
Rivals used to be the best, but their quality has gone down big time over the last few years. Just look at their 2013 final rankings and compare them to reality. Hindsight is always 20/20, but some of these are just laughable.
Derrick Green at #8 overall, seriously? EZE ranked at #84 for a little perspective.
Christian Hackenberg at #24....
Jaylon Smith at #3, Darron Lee not in the top 100.
Recruiting services are sketchy to begin with, this should put the star gazers in their place. Its sad that people actually pay these sites for info.
Thug Life Hernandez is from CT, down the street from ESPN in Bristol.
Jack Tatum was from NJ though, he sets the standard for Buckeyes coming from there. Jenkins and Apple (and alot more) live up to it.
I agree with you that this is way bigger than CFB wins/losses, and I hope to see anyone involved suffering the same fate Jerry did. That said, Paterno is dead so he can't pay for what he did, or didn't do in this case. What the sanctions did was make him irrelevant in the landscape of CFB. Undoing them brings his name back when the CFB world should just forget he ever existed. Aside from Sandusky and McQueary, Joe's the biggest PoS in this stuation yet he skates without consequence. Worse yet, one day we'll have to hear about another coach chasing his record and no one will mention all this stuff. The NCAA did the right thing by erasing him, then for some reason decided to resurrect him which is such an NCAA thing to do.
All those Circle Drills paying off!
Was cracking up when he scared Oregon's RT into false starting at the end of the game. Right after he planted Mariota and drew a PF on their OL because they were upset he was tackling in a tackle football game.
Made fun of scUM for all the things you mentioned, still do for some. Taking shots is a fun part of the rivalry, and I laughed at him claiming they don't need our guys and calling Urban Gordon Gecko. Complaining that we scored a late TD in the NCG isn't the same as those. I hope we never complain that scUM beat another team by too much, it would say way more about us than them.
I could respect him if he stopped at not being able to root for us, I lose all respect when he becomes a whiny bitch accusing us of running up the score.
Do you have any idea how many fake girlfriends Notre Dame would kill off during the promotion of that game?!?!?!
You can respect whiny bitch fans? You're a better man than I am.
How long before that idiotic statue goes back up? Paterno was a PoS, he's a fitting idol for that fanbase.
Hahahahaha..... has Harbaugh ever run up the score? Eisien was just bitch slapped.
Jameis seems like the right fit to be Big Ben's successor, he has the same felonies.... I mean qualities.
The man just dominated the CFB playoff, if anyone can turn around the Browns it's him. Thats why there's no chance we draft him, we aren't capable of drafting a good QB.
If Noah spence is there in the 3rd, I hope Farmer takes about 10 seconds to put his name on the card. The Browns need pass rushers badly and Spence is a 1st round talent thats gonna drop. I think he's gonna be a beast 3-4 OLB in the NFL, hopefully in Cleveland.
If he leaves, I really hope to see him in a Browns uniform next year.
One of my favorite parts of this season was seeing Fickell and Curtis Grant bitch slap their critics.
