And yet people still make Tatgate remarks all the time. Much like an in-conference loss to an SEC foe; NCAA violations don't count when you're south of the Mason-Dixon.

No one. I love college football in general, but the only team that brings me great joy and/or crippling heartache is Ohio State. I do, of course, root for all B1G teams OOC and in bowls, though.

This is a great point. FSU on its own probably doesn't work, just like adding say, UVA and GT don't work on a football quality level. But, you add all of them - including ND, AND you just made one mean football conference, with the academics to boot.

Not crazy about GT or UVA, but if they're part of a deal with UNC, FSU and ND, sign me up. My dream was Texas and OU, but I don't see the Horns being able to play third fiddle in a conference dominated by Ohio State and Michigan, nor do I see the B1G acquiescing to Texas' need for their own TV network - especially one failing miserably. In this scenario, I think Texas goes to the Pac12 and OU and OSU head to the SEC. One team I've kinda wanted for our conference is VA Tech, but I'm guessing they'd head to the SEC as well. Curious as to why there never been any discussion of them in the B1G; possibly academics?

I'm just worried that Oklahoma will fall prey to the obligatory "perennial powerhouse team that shits the bed the two years they have Ohio State on the schedule" curse. You know, like USC 2009, Miami 2009-10, California in 2012-13 and VT 2014-15. Can we please just play a top 10 team OOC in the regular season for once? Jeez!
Comment 08 Apr 2016
Agreed. We played 10 trash teams and won 10 games, many unconvincingly. We played 3 top 10 teams and went 2-1, but unfortunately lost the one game we couldn't lose, to the aforementioned backup QB-led MSU. No one's fault but our own.

Well, you are a wizard, do the accolades are well deserved. Even more importantly, the morons at mgoblog.com think you are trash. So it's a win all around.

I don't need details, but is this an actual JOB for you (I.e. one that pays you money) or is it simply something you do in your spare time at 5AM every day?

UH - also known as Ohio State Southern Campus. I hope Strong stays at Texas for a long time, because then Herman will be the next coach of Ohio State...
Comment 09 Mar 2016
I will always love James Patrick Tressel. He took over a program that was in shambles and won a title with players who had never won more than 8 games in one season. He also showed players who'd never even beaten Michigan that they'd never have to fear that team again. I wouldn't trade UFM for anyone, not even Vince Lombardi or Knute Rockne or Bear Bryant, but Coach Tressel laid the foundation for the greatness our team has achieved the last 4 years. An amazing man.

Blue fan, I definitely agree with your statement about not wanting or needing the extra media attention. We saw how that worked out for almost the entirety of 2015, with our team being crowned before spring practice had even started. I will pass on that.
