Canadian Tuxedos so Neville Gallimore feels at home... I like it.
Ohio State would never allow UC to join the Big 10. I do think the Big 12 would be a very good fit for them.
I hope he isn't fired. I wanted him fired immediately after The Game while on the bus a la Lane Kiffin.
Maybe I missed this one but the Germaine to Boston catch in the Rose Bowl over Arizona State.
Definitely some good points that you bring up. I think the payment of players is another topic for another day but the idea of relegation, in my view, would push the B1G teams to become better from the bottom up. Sure Purdue has had good years in the past and in those years they wouldn't be sent down. However, if they are as a bad as they are now it would be better (IMO) for Ohio State to play a good NIU or Ohio or Central Michigan than a bad Purdue. If Purdue doesn't want to be sent down then get better, plain and simple.
I agree but we have had a pretty good offense for the past couple of years. It has been awhile since we have had a truly nasty defense.
I'm not sure how the B1G loses money if this were to occur. The main thing that brings revenue in for these conference affiliated channels is games. The B1G doesn't want to play games on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the week. The MAC typically plays on these days because ESPN pays them a lot of money do do so (and ESPN make even more money by airing these games). Instead of the money going to ESPN for the game revenue it would go to the B1G Network. Thus, the B1G Network would have more revenue to pass out back to the schools.
I think that is why you would have to do the relegation every two years to avoid the fluke year for a team. The team with the worst 2 year record would be sent down to the Little 10.
Is anyone else interested in how scary good our defense might be next year? They could be returning 8-10 guys that regularly contribute this year. Plus the depth that is being built is also allowing the other 3-5 guys to gain some experience and will fill in quickly.
I can't wait to see the design for Icebox. Not to mention the recruiting poster for Spike.
As much as we often (myself included) joke about the SEC being one big team when it comes to recruiting that stigma helps A TON. A kid is far more ecstatic to receive an offer from a Kentucky or Vanderbilt because they are SEC-level programs. They don't always look at the fact that they are actually pretty bad and probably on the same level as a bottom tier B1G or Big XII team. But the SEC has an allure to it because of the way the top has performed and everyone takes credit for it. It is dumb but it works.
After last weeks lost I got the hot and ready meal deal (pizza, b-stix and a 2 liter) depressingly ate it like I was Urban on a golf cart.
I'm still going to get a hot and ready meal this week but I will happily be eating it this time. Bucks 42-10
Its weeks like this that I am very glad I can just log into the Premium Lounge. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano.
I've always wondered if Mauk gets more interest from OSU if Urban was the coach when he was in high school. He seems like he would be a good fit. Very similar to Joey B in my mind.
I strayed from my vodka and Gatorade last night in an effort to get a host of VT fans too drunk to cheer for their team today. Going to need to hydrate for a while before the game.
also VT fans rank up there with Nebraska as the nicest fans for me. Almost makes me worried. Almost.
We did it out of respect. The Navy has been trying to avoid the clap since WW2. Didn't want to give anyone PTSD.
I was thinking about this as well. I don't think they do any thing specific but I wouldn't be surprise to see maybe a sign that says "JW" or something similar in the stands where they sit. I don't know how they could plan something without the interim director knowing about it.
Bosa but I feel like that is cheating. But I'll go with Whitehead for the '15 class.
Vodka and Gatorade... gotta stay hydrated for the game.
The offense getting up to 500 ypg is focused a lot on the defense not allowing long, time consuming, drives by the opponent. Last week Navy consistently had long drives in the first half. When the second half came around and the defense starting holding them more the offense picked up. Hopefully this week will have more 3 and outs to get the offense more reps.
I initially was thinking a blocked punt but Va Tech is usually very sounds in the punt kick/return game. I think a kickoff is their only somewhat weakness on special teams. I am also thinking of a possible pick six but not sure about that one yet.
