True but unlike last year we don't need to be in the top 2. Top 4 is easier to get into. All we have to do is win. Last year we had to win AND win "better" than other teams to jump them.

Possible Silver Linings:

1. Forces all players to step up.

2. Lowered external expectations and pressure. We no longer "need" to beat Navy by 30. We can be judged on W-L.

3. While I doubt JT is a better playmaker/runner rumor has it he is an excellent decision maker in the passing game. Maybe we can let our QB pass and our stable of RB's run?

4. Defense wins 'ships anyways.

Best Wishes to Braxton in his recovery.

With that being said OSU won a championship with Krenzel and lost with Smith and Pryor. Moral of the story is defense and ball control with time of possession and turnover margin win the big games. If our D and RB's step up we will be fine. If not; we wouldn't have won anyways.

Wow, if you think these AAU style coaches are assholes now just put the money carrot from TV money in front of them. Those kids will be ruined in no time.

Fair or  not the SEC has several championships in the past decade so playing their league opponents "counts" as tough games. The Big Ten hasn't won it all in over a decade so we need to go above and beyond to prove our worth. I'm not so sure whats hard about this?

And before anyone brings up FSU last year. If we would've beat every opponent by 40 points we would have been in the final game without question as well.

Well atleast they haven't got any GA's killed this off season. Thats a plus right?

Comment 15 Aug 2014


JK but I would say Browns then Cavs then Indians. I personally think alot of people in NE Ohio are pissed off at the Dolans and while Gilbert is far from perfect he has NEVER been reluctant to spend. While it may not be fair, Cleveland doesn't want to hear we aren't New York and all we get is excuses from Shapanetti.

The problem is the media(typically left leaning), asks questions over and over again to people who are conservative or Christian and then get shocked when they give an answer they knew they believed. Tony Dungy didn't go out of his way to talk negatively about Sam; a reporter asked him repeatedly to answer a question he knew would be "contreversial" and then the media, which creates distractions, blames others for said distraction. 

I think there are ways to do this in a way that proves a point. If its not a big deal, and you are "just one of the guys"; show up to a team gathering with your BF and act like you always do. Doing a press conference and then claiming its not a big deal doesn't mesh. Just show up with your BF and people will put 2 and 2 together. Mission accomplished. And then when reporters bug you(and they will..again typically left leaning) you can say , "whats the big deal? I live my life like everyone else on my team"

This is a shit show. As a whole, the universities credibility is in shambles. You don't lie about witnesses. They allegedly had "overwhelming" evidence and they have to resort to lying?? What is this Shark Week where they lie to scientists to get in mocumentories? 

To those who say they can't bring Waters back; if you screw up, you don't just say "oh well , our bad", you fix the situation. 

Also, we are supposed to believe hundred of students march through the Shoe with lights on at midnight for years and no cop, facility member, or administrator notices? They are either lying or fucking incompetent.

Side note; The Cavs still have 2 1st round picks next year. Their own and the Memphis pick. So we can still add some decent young players into the fold. Or use them and Haywoods expiring for a center.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

It would have been nice to reach a middle ground- 4 year scholarships, full scholarship price of admission etc, and health insurance for players. That doesn't mean we pay Braxton 1M a year. There should have been some common sense at some point.
