As much as I hate ND I actually love Lou Holtz. Still there is no reason he should be doing any play by play type announcing. And for people that are offended by Bosa's tweet need to lighten up.
I am with you DJ on the corporate names. I wish they would do it like the Rose Bowl. While they have a sponsor because dolla dolla bills ya'll it is always listed second (The Rose Bowl...presented by Corporate McCorprateson).
How is Doc Holliday still at Marshall? Back to back solid seasons and a pretty good pedigree (including a former Urban assistant). Would be funny if Michigan hired him since the last person with ties to West Virginia worked out so well.
In my opinion Florida State is begging him to go to the NFL immediately after their last game this season. They have hitched their wagon to him for the last two years but I guarantee the higher ups want him out of there as soon as possible.
Websites were more prevalent at that time for sure but following the OSU/Miami game on twitter would have been one of the funniest things ever. I could only imagine DJ's article the next day showing hundreds of butt hurt Hurricane fan tweets.
I have no idea how this game is going to go but I have always thought about this idea:
How fun would the internet (twitter/11w/etc.) been during the '02 game with Miami? I have a feeling this game against Bama may end up just as fun.
Both CFP games are going to absolute battles I think and I for one am just going to sit back and enjoy. (Okay so maybe not that relaxed during the OSU game but it still will be fun).
Not to knock the topic but is this just a guess or did you see some rumors about this happening?
As to Beck... I'm not overly high on him. I think Urban will go after someone with some more passing game history to merge with Wariner's running game knowledge. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Pelini try to keep a good amount of his staff together considering he will likely get a new gig in a year or two.
I'm not a huge Bears fan by any means but I actually think this is a horrible move. First, Clausen is horrible. But second, I watched nearly all of the Monday night game and Cutler is not the problem at all for the Bears. Their line is nonexistent. A couple of plays he didn't even get fully into his drop before he was being sacked. That is not on the QB at all IMO. The main issue is that the Bears are a team that has quit on their coach. Look even at the dumpster fire that typically is the Jets and they at least play hard each week. With Forte it should not be that hard to quarterback that team but with the horrible offensive line there isn't much you can do.
If only Stevie Wonder could have seen that party...oh wait.
I know it sounds kind of odd but I think a lot of Bama fans are expecting an easy win here and are saving their money to buy National Championship game tickets. Whereas, the Buckeye fans are willing to buy both if needed. I would expect 65% OSU 30% Bama and 5% other (who will likely be cheering for OSU).
Actually kind of surprised by this. NFL-wise I know of a lot of people who had him as one of the better true QBs coming out this year. I don't think coming back will hurt him as he had just an okay year but I think he would have been a late second round/early third round pick in this years draft.
I'm a huge fan of both Dan and Feherty and this was one of my favorite episodes. A lot of interesting information. I wish it would have been another hour as I feel like there could be a lot more discussed. I have yet to see a bad episode of Feherty. I don't know if it is his personality or what but he really seems to get people to open up and talk about the game of golf and their lives.
If Urban is comfortable enough with him calling plays I would like Brian Johnson out of this list. Young energetic mind who faces some of the more difficult defenses each weak (you can bash but its true) and has still put up good numbers. Plus he is familiar with Urban. I also don't think he will be gone as fast as the other people on the list considering he is so young. I think he would be there for at least 5 years if he is brought in.
The 2016 d-line group could be nasty. Cooper, Bosa and Robertson seem likely to me. Add in one more in that group and it will be scary good.
The silver lining (if any) is that maybe this will lead Herman to letting it all hang out during the Bama game. No reason to hold anything back as he will not have to hear the criticism (if any) from some play calls. Anyways... best of luck.
While it is not ideal... NIU at least is generally a 9-10 win team each year and has won the MAC a lot recently. Western Michigan is a toss up and knowing our luck will win 2 games next year. Plus I really think VaTech should be a lot better next year and may compete in the ACC.
Sorry... I shouldn't trust twitter. :(
Per Carolina Highway Safety Authority (I guess its a real thing) he has broken both legs. Tough news but at least he seems okay in the big picture.
They don't call it the Crimson Tide for nothing.
I had so many people after the game on Saturday say "Well at least we don't live in Ohio" Umm... you live in Wisconsin? That is approximately 10000% worse. The Badgers are some weird folk.
I am with you on a lot of these games. Except I think PSU beats BC. The fact that this will be their first bowl game in a couple years will provide the team with some extra motivation. Plus, I think PSU will travel well to NYC for the game to lend some support. I wouldn't be shocked if Nebraska beats USC. USC just doesn't show up in bowl games recently. Abdullah should be healthy and could go off running the ball.
I said him in the Cowherd thread. I think it makes some sense considering he has Michigan roots and experience. The only thing that hurts him is that he has sucked as a head coach. Still, hiring an actual winning coach isn't much of a priority for Michigan.
