It is not only the best Ohio State site, I have yet to see any free site for any university rival it.

Agreed, every time I visit MGoBlog I am reminded of how wonderful it is to have 11 Warriors.   11W is superior in ALL ways from rational arguments, superior organization, excellent writing and analysis.

I don't dislike the man in the least.  The only problem I have is that although commentators like Desmond Howard goes out of his way to say his subjective Pro-UM rants, I think that Herbie goes out of his way to sound overly objective and come across on the air as though he is not a fan of the program.    I can understand that he is the cornerstone of that show and knows where his bread is buttered and if push comes to shove, people like Desmond are gone in a flash and Herbie wants to milk that job as long as he can.

Although I think Mark Richt is a decent coach, he runs his program with a hair bit more integrity than most of the SEC.   It is unfortunate, but I don't feel that Georgia will ever win anything unless they SEC it up a bit more.   I think they are good, and they have talent, but not Alabama talent.

That being said, if Alabama didn't have the superior talent, they would fail a lot with their historic vanilla offensive schemes (Lane Kiffin's offense being an oddity).   That being said,  Having an up tempo offense may not be good for a mammoth defense built to stop the run.   Big players gas sooner.

I feel that the only reason why Baylor and TCU are actually considered decent is because Texas is so horrible that the former are getting all the players that Mack Brown used to under utilize.   That being said, Baylor still seems to get system players that are not superior athletes.    

Maybe if the Big 12ish played a little defense or at least hired a defensive coordinator that could slow down one of these pass spread and run offenses we wouldn't have to hear from these schools.

All universities get 100 waivers for admission by the NCAA.  Of course the majority of those are used by Men's Basketball and Football.   Some universities simply refuse to use the waivers like Stanford or Wisconsin.  I think that is why Tressel always recruited a higher GPA player that was almost as good as the 5 star idiot.   Less headaches.

I am truly pulling for Dylan Thompson.  I remember looking back at his high school film and seeing him get off the ball with amazing speed, conversely I remember watching Tommy Schutt getting off the ball about a half second late consistently, he was sort of slow and just a hole plugger.    Hopefully Thompson can get cleared, I think he will be a super 3 technique in the future...crosses fingers.

Great article, thanks!

I was so looking forward to seeing Noah Brown play this year, but I will be twice as happy if he heals well.  Get better Noah

Oregon is a fine team that consistently steam rolls their competition.   They simply ran into a buzz saw that day.  Yes they had players out of the game, but at the end of the day,  they had a lot of adversity and failed to overcome it.   As for running up the score, please.  That is Oregon's calling card.

To be honest, I don't mind having green grass in August.  I am happy to keep California's water.

Although I have not seen the film yet, I will say that Straight Outta Compton was simply an incredible CD,  First song to Last, and I am not a huge rap fan.  That album was simply incredible.  The only other album I enjoyed from start to finish was GNR Appetite for Destruction.
