You said at the height of their success, that was 2007 and 2008 during Harbaugh's Stanford tenure. The upset happened in 2007, he lost to them in 2008. In 2009 USC was a 4 loss team and in 2010 they were coached by Lane Kiffin. As for your conjecture about Saban, what are you basing that on? LSU was 3-8 the year before Saban took over and he took them to a National Title, Bama was 6-7 and about to be sanctioned in 2006 then Saban took them to multiple National Titles. Nothing Harbaugh has done is more impressive than that. So while Jimmy building the 2nd best team in a watered down Pac-10 may impress the hell out of you, I'm not really in awe. He struggled against Chip Kelly last time he was in CFB, and our coach is a hell of alot better than Chip Kelly.
And saban was an infinitely better CFB coach than Harbaugh. Whats their NFL resume matter in college? As for "taking down Pete Carroll and USC at the height of their success", I guess 1 win over a truly great USC team, or any great team really, during his Stanford tenure is enough to scare you. Not me, upsets happen but that game is no way indicative that Harbaugh can consistently compete with the top programs in CFB.
What Harbaugh is doing is a great idea and I think Urban should copy it. Try and get Tebow, Leak, Smith, Pryor, etc to come back for a camp.
Yeah, no thanks. We have the guy who taught those 1st 3 (Assuming the Smith you reference is Alex and already do quite well with FNL. No need to bring in QB's from other schools in an effort to add excitement to our program, we already generate plenty on our own. I guess these are the gimmicks you have to resort to when you can't sell your program.
So Gibson goes out of his way to bully a much smaller player on the court, then cries when a towel almost hits him. Time to change your tampon Taj.
I'd still be trying to figure out how he conned a woman into marrying him. He doesn't make enough to justify looking at that face every day when you wake up.
So Gibson, at 6-9 and 225 lbs, takes multipe cheap shots at Dellavadova, who is 6-4 and 220, yet its the fans who are classless?
Hey Taj, man up and take shots like that at Perkins if you play in game 6, then see what happens.
Keep him as a 3 star, the last 3 star DB we got from Peachtree Ridge turned out ok.
In the immortal words of Jay-Z:
Horrendous trade for the Browns, which is sadly why I think its realistic.
Throw in Johnny Rehab too if we have to pay that much.
I think he picks up his option this offeseason, then signs a FA deal after next year when the Cap raises. Where that deal is signed depends on how they build on the awesome chemistry we were seeing this postseason before he was taken out by that PoS.
I love this, it basically forces Chicago to not play Gasol and Noah together. Any exposure we have to Gasol posting up Lebron is minimal when compared to the matchup nightmares Chicago would have trying to play D against that 5 with Noah and Gasol on the court. Just think about Gasol manning up on James, Lebron would drop 60.
I expected him to be tossed for sure, instead they T'd up Crowder as well. Looking at those officials in hidsight its not surprising, but at the time even Cavs fans had to be surprised by that one.
Smith's punishment stems from the result of his action, not his action itself. If Crowder doesn't go to sleep then this isn't as big an issue. Perkins hit him too and only got a $15k fine, Perkins also has priors I believe.
Calling it punching someone in the face is also hilarious, he basically backhanded him. So Crowder goes night-night from getting bitch slapped because he was sending forearm shivers at Smith's back, and Smith gets 2 games. Kevin Love suffers structural damage in his shoulder from an arm bar because Kelly Olynyk was pissed he can't box out and his team sucks, and Kelly gets 1 game. That would also be hilarious if it wasn't so sad.
Well he shouldn't have gotten any, more would have been criminal. In a world where ending Kevin Love's season with a dirty PoS move gets you 1 game, Smith sticking up for himself should have been praised by the NBA.
Olynyk only suspended 1 game too, F'n BS. JR Smith gets twice the suspension because Crowder is the NBA's version of Glass Joe.
Starting to hear "Ladders" more often, when did they rename Suicides?
Nice find, he kills any speculation that he's not solid on his commitment AND that he's upset about not playing with Guarantano (sp?) in 1 tweet.
Ok? Luck was interested in Stanford long before jimmy was hired. We can give jimmy credit for not screwing it up though and holding off strong pushes from powerhouse programs like Purdue and Northwestern.
its only cut and dry if you think the HC is the only reason a recruit chooses a school. Using that rationale, players like Eifflein, Cardale and Michael Thomas committed to OSU because Fickell was the HC. I wouldn't consider that cut and dry at all.
I agree that Cooper is great, but Bosa would be a Top 3 pick in the NFL Draft next week if he were eligible. He's just as NFL ready as Cooper, and he's alot younger.
So going into the first ever CFB Playoff, they did't practice that hard? Seriously?
Joey Bosa begs to differ.
Show needs more dragons, hopefully the 2 locked up get freed at some point.
Buckeye fans are well aware of Boone's struggles with alcohol, I don't see how those struggles equate to him having needed to learn to shut the F up for a while now though. Was curious why you would make that statement, I'm not aware of Boone's history of running his mouth is why.
