Make Blake Sims have to think about the game - guy's prone to mistakes when his two favorite options aren't available.
Outback Bowl - Auburn
For as good as Wisconsin's defense was supposed to be, they sure looked helpless against the spread last weekend
Citrus Bowl - Minnesota
Mizzou lost to Indiana so why the hell not
Sugar Bowl - OSU
Roll Tears Roll
Tax Slayer Bowl - Iowa
Kirk Ferentz takes out his anger over not being named B1G coach of the year on a terrible Tennessee squad
Ducks haven't been held under 40 since that Arizona loss and they've been firing on all cylinders since. Calling it 42-31 for Oregon... as much as it pains me to do so.
That's ok, Harbaugh will just find a different defensive coordinator instead. Maybe Bo Pelini or Will Muschamp.
Well... At least now they won't have to complain about nine win seasons anymore.
Anything that gets #FSUTwitter riled up is ok in my book!
1. As we've seen with a certain recently fired coach, recruiting well doesn't necessarily lead to success. Once the kids get to the university, it's all about development.
2. No Big Ten team has overcome to the same amount of adversity and achieved the same level of success, BY FAR.
But really at the end of the day, COY is just a pat on the back. I just wish a damn Ohio State coach would FINALLY win this thing so we could stop caring about it for another ten years.
Side note, losing to Tim Beckman led Illinois should automatically disqualify you from this award.
And here I thought Jim Harbaugh was the craziest rumor.
Completely agree - the guy is a Buckeye through and through and was put in (in my opinion) a seemingly even more impossible situation than JT at the beginning of the year. We have to support him no matter what happens this weekend!
A Cardale pitch to Jalin followed by a deep throw would be beautiful (a la Kenny to Braxton during the Indiana Game 2013)
"I mean, it's hard to count Cardale out after throwing for the school record 7 touchdown passes... or that 95 yard touchdown run where he bulldozed through five different defenders"
"I hope Jalin's 4 punt returns for touchdowns this half quiet the haters a little."
And then he fumbles the next one and twenty topics are made saying he should be benched.
MAC - NIU, Bowling Green has had a great year, but they've dropped the last two.
PAC 12 - Oregon, Ducks pull it off easily fueled by revenge (not that it really mattered in the big picture...)
ACC - FSU, Everyone's favorite team of destiny will have to wait till the first game of the playoffs to lose and lose big.
SEC - Alabama, because MIZZOU LOST TO INDIANA LOL
B1G - OSU, strangely optimistic about this one. Think the team rallies around JT going down and pulls out a win to head into bowl season as B1G champs! Urban's showed us how friendly his scheme is to the quarterback that's at the helm.
Agree that there will be a lot of emotion - but who's to say they don't harness that emotion and play the game of their lives in honor of their fallen and deceased (R.I.P.) teammates? Could definitely see it going either way.
Nevertheless, I expect some sort of book/TV special on this team years from now.
Might be the weirdest start to a football game I've ever seen.
Apologies - should've remembered to use the sarcasm font on that one lol
Also not sure who delivered the downvote. Sent an upvote to counteract it.
Texas is not very good.
Wait.. that doesn't look like Ezekiel Elliott at all. And he's an offensive lineman now?!
Florida State is just unstoppable! Practically every game I think "oh they're gonna lose this one" and they ALWAYS pull it off!
Odds on Arkansas jumping into the top 25?
