The last time Tennessee beat Florida, facebook and iphones didn't exist.

Remember when The Vols were good?

Yes. Even before Peyton Manning and Tee Martin. Back when Cooper was new and losing super stars with ridiculous stats to those hillbillies.

(Ohio State fans used the phrase "down year" this summer? Not anyone who eats at my hearth.)

Did you mean "some fans"?

Sure, maybe Mike D'antoni didn't actually hit Brian Kelly in the back of a head with a brick this weekend, but a coach's influence reverberates through every aspect of the program. The coach establishes the culture of his program.

And when it comes down to it, the only coach in Meyer's league is Nick Saban. He is the only one that can match Meyer with talent, facilities, recruiting, development, and game-management. 

Saban isn't in his league. Dantonio is closer at getting his players ready than Saban. Saban was decent at Michigan State. He even had a win over Joe Germaine. But it ends there. Dino is doing it without over signing 4 and 5 stars every year.

This is a REALLY random comment. But the skys tonight have been beautiful in 3-4 of these games. UCF/Maryland is orange, MSU/ND is almost purple.

Okay, I'm done.

Notre Dame lost to Tressel-ball, big time. Get a big lead from dominating the running game and defense, then take your foot off the pedal and let them get closer as time expires. Textbook effort.

Great game overall ------------- final score Buckeyes 45 - 24

Thanks for starting a thread. I didn't want to start one to make a couple of comments. 

I was very pleased with the defensive line. In general, they contained him on most plays. They got penetration, and didn't over pursue letting him run wild. They showed great discipline and gap control. Mayfield can be difficult to deal with when he is let loose. Kind of like Manziel.

Lattimore had one interception officially, but two in our hearts. He played this ball perfectly and appeared to make a great diving catch. Upon review, however, it was ruled incomplete.

Except the ball didn't hit the ground, or at least it was not obvious. Just more bad calls from the Big 12. 

Joe Mixon clearly dropped the ball before crossing the goal line and it rolled out the side of the end zone. Not only was this not a touchdown, it was a touchback – it should have been Buckeye ball at the 20 yard line.

Obviously, this is an officiating blunder, but it's also an Ohio State blunder.

A Big 12 officiating blunder? Surely you jest.

The only thing worse that shitty Big 12 officials is that asshole with Gus Johnson. Nice pick Lattimore. Control does not matter if it doesn't hit the ground.

Comment 15 Sep 2016

So it's no surprise he practiced sports bigamy as a youth.

This explains a bizarre question/answer following Cooper's removal from The OSU. Stoops was on TV and I forget who asked but something along the lines of "Ohio State fired John Cooper. The job is available. Would you consider it?" And Stoops' non reply was, "I haven't heard it". That isn't what he asked, and you did just hear of it. He just told you. The answer was no, because he is Benedict Arnold.
