My personal head canon is that Hugo(they nicest guy ever) spent his time as the island protector and created the flash sideways because he missed his friends and wanted one last time together before they "moved on".
Still cracks me up they named Jacks dad Christian Shepard. My favorite show ever but sometimes they would lay it on thick.
So early way optimistic prediction for the year. 60-22 with a Finals win in 6 over the Clippers.
I think the problem is our O Line isn't as good as we'd like and JT still is learning. The fact is with those INT's, it caused hesitation to trust him with throwing in the 2nd half.
Realistically, how far up do we need to be to have a decent shot at the top 4 by years end? We will have two chances to be ranked team. MSU and the championship game(assuming we win against MSU). I am thinking we can't be much below 15 right?
The part that cracks me up is now that Chris Fowler and other ESPN people mention this in a way that says "This isn't happening", you are causing the thought of bias to be in peoples minds. Its like telling someone not to think about an elephant. What pops in your mind? I think ESPN was better off ignoring this topic. Everytime they bring it up it just makes more people question it.
To be fair, our defense overall played great yesterday. If our offense didnt give up a pick 6 and play like the 1999 Browns on offense we couldve held them to single digits.
Justin Zwick was the truth in HS. Won a state ship as a freshman from the town near me than transferred to Massillon.
So reading on Deadspin allegedly :
1. Golden tate sleeps with Wilsons wife
2. Harvin confronts Tate before super bowl
3. Wilson goes to Harvin about anger management instead of liking that he "stood up" for him
4. Tate is no longer on team
5. Harvins pissed at Wilson
OSU's "leadership" blows.
Hard to believe and remember Purdue being that good in the early 2000's
Freaking awesome! I know there are going to be annoyingly long lines and annoying kids but I will be trying my hardest to get in opening night.
Way to go with the Cat. Wonderful animals who for the most part can take care of themselves. I used to be a dog person until I saved a stray cat.
*Still love dogs
Ive said it before but alot of these issues would be fixed by having no pre season poles.That way we don't get Texas A&M shooting up for beating a crap S Carolina team for example.
So I was watching the postgame/in between game this past weekend waiting for the night ESPN game. The lead in to the Nebraska Northwestern game was on and they literally said "Nebraska has had a real disappointing year". WTF, they are 5-1. Yes I am sure some people expected 6-0 and this point but how is that even a legit lead in to a 5-1 team that had zero national title aspirations before the season?
I would look more towards fit in the program, filling holes, and other offers. One thing I always wish was considered was the holes created by graduation and the draft and filling said holes. For example; you can have 5 5 star linebackers or 5 5 star players across positions of needs. Technically its the same number of recruits and same total starts but one is much more desirable. I think schools that are 2nd tier like Michigan State and Wisconsin in general do a great job of not allowing holes in the depth charts. Its something I thought Tress did real well at too for awhile. This is not a complaint especially due to suspensions and being kicked off the team but we could use an extra Defensive lineman or two vs the 8(exgageration) running backs we have. So if Urban gives us a ranking of 10 but all our holes are filled vs a top 5 class that leaves us thin in places, I'll take it.
They wouldnt. It would be the de facto 1st round.
So I think for the first time that Maryland and Rutgers(mainly Maryland) are solid additions to the league. Of course we want to add teams like Texas and Notre Dame but realistically Maryland should win 6-10 games a year and be around 4-6th most years. Much better than the likes of Purdue and Illinoise.
8 makes too much sense. Conference champions plus runner ups. Conference championship game is round 1. 4 leagues. Each league has two divisions. Winner winner chicken dinner.
Well who else are we going to watch in the morning? The Big Ten needs to put a boot up Fox's ass to get their programming together if we are going to sign with them long term. CBS was the "SEC network" before there was one so its not like thats much better than ESPN. NBC shows Notre Dame. The only option is Fox. Everyone needs to watch them as much as possible if there is ever going to be a true competition TV wise.
Last year Conner Cook tore apart our defense. While is isn't a world beater, they do have a balanced offense which is more than teams like FSU can say. I think I am more "worried" about our defense vs their offense then the other way around. They just gave up 30 points to Purdue and while still a good defense is not currently where they were last week.
Ohio State has SEC speed.
Edit: I shouldn't say overused, just dreadfully annoying when it is said.
If people are considering Notre Dame and forgetting 2012 , I am assuming we no longer are paying for the sins of 2006-2007 championship games?
We need LSU to take down Ole Miss next week. Hopefully they win out.
