That is how the propaganda machine that is ESPN, who tells people what to think, will spin it.
I can't tell you how much I am down with "Can't guard Mike". Nothing like some serious YAC action.
Meanwhile, South Carolina who was humiliated by Texas A&M is in great shape as is Georgia. Georgia will not take a hit for losing to a great team like SC just because that team was dismantled.
Don't lose track of the fact that Va Tech blew their wad and had this game circled....for more than a year? And played way over their heads.
So much for the "spread", the biggest fallacy there is. Yes, the field from back line to back line is 120 yards long. So what. You don't line up at the back of the endzone on 1st and 10 from the 36. And neither does the defense. The other fallacy is the numbers advantage. It is 11 against 11. so the best thing to do is be bigger, faster and stronger than the opponent, and proper execution of blocking and tackling. My hero JT, the Senator, the Vest never had good offensive line coaching. That is the only thing I would change from him.
A few comments from Meyer were correct after the game. Adam Rittenberg on ESPN got it wrong.
The new line on offense was not good in the first half. Game time and practice are two different things. All who play know this. They were much better in the second half.
Rittenberg said the defensive line has to be better. No they don't. Curtis failed to impress again at linebacker. Watch your replays. I must be spoiled, because he is the opposite of Shazier, Laurinaitis, Hawk, Wilhelm, Spielman...he constantly backs up against the run. I don't get it. Perry was much better than Curtis.
Barrett was fine. He threw two picks, thankfully the one was missed and didn't go for six. I am pleased with his overall game and first start against a good defense.
And wow on all those hyper fast skill players. There are only so many reps in the game for all of them. I wanted to see more of Marshall.
AFN sports is carrying it.
He makes Beth Mowins sound intelligent.
Smaller version of the same thing in terminal 3 of Dubai International (Emirates terminal). Pretty slick.
Treg Lee put it all together at the end. I think he can too.
Know why John Elway had more 4th quarter comebacks than Joe Montana? Montana took care of business in the first three quarters.
What? Who doesn't like Pryor or want him around?
But it's curious to me how Tressel has all but been canonized by fans (and rightfully so), yet an odium still surrounds his former protegé. After all, Pryor had the excuse of youthful naïveté. Tressel was the professional
I do not enjoy the facts. The facts are the Steelers are one of the best franchises in all of professional sports. The Browns are one of the worst, bad owners and bad managers. Shazier will brake Manziel in two. I hope I am proved wrong.
I am going to shift gears slightly, to a mans verbiage.
These words may also define Urban Meyer's tenure at Ohio State. The simplicity of the words chosen and their brute honesty capture both the baseline expectations

Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech
Next thing you know, you will see idiots trying the same thing, and end up on Fail Army's youtube channel. Along with all the other morons that think you don't need the wires that are removed via CGI in the movies.
Even with no-contact jerseys, both showed they can run the football but the passing was hit and miss. Jones seemed to struggle with touch in that every ball he threw that wasn't a deep shot came out hot.
Pryor was the same way. It took a lot to tone it down.
I think it was said......I don't always look at men without shirts, but when I do, they are OSU linebackers.
I will profess to not breaking down film on kickers often. Here goes.
It went through the uprights, or it didn't. Fat kicker with a rap sheet? It didn't matter to Al either.
Paul Brown won more than 3. His teams played in 10 straight championship games, winning 7. And when the NFL took the AAFC, they had the "fake" champion Browns go up against the best, only to watch the Browns beat them too. It is the most dominate dynasty in pro-football history.
Who remembers tOSU losing to Dayton in the early 80's? The three point shot might have been adopted that year. Dayton gave Oklahoma and Tisdale all they could handle in the NCAA tournament.
Treg Lee's score with the assist from JJ is the best thing I remember in SJA.
Meyer's exit will definitely be on his terms
Many said that about Hayes. Hopefully, it won't be a similar exit. And with different personalities, it should be.
Our honor defend....still the best writing. Mocking those that deserve to be mocked without being childish or millenialish. I don't think it is a word either.
What a disgrace.
