What if the falling away wasn't from Hill's end but Ohio State?? I know we like to think our program is perfect but maybe we were the ones having second thoughts not Hill?
On a slightly unrelated note, it is ridiculous that we live in a free country and online poker is illegal. /end rant
When I worked there back in the day that was the reason. You only had one grill and it had to be at a certain temperature for breakfast, then you would change it for lunch. Our location(probably all of them) had to run a complete set of food during the switch, test the internal temperature, then throw it out to make sure it was safe/good/etc. I wonder if it was as simple as adding another grill.
I think Urban is the best coach in the game. With that being said I think he wanted to reward Cardale for making a "good" life decision in coming back and improving his stock and getting more education. If any other coach waited until the last minute to name a starter and then that team played below expectation on offense we would say that the coach shouldve named a starter so he would get more reps and the offense would have continuity. If any other coach outside of Saban and Urban does this, they open themselves up for scrutiny. There is a reason there are sayings about if you have 2 QB's you have none. In reality this should have been handled in early August.
I think we have a team full of great athletes who are trying to hard due to either pressure, or lack of snaps due to depth and trying to force too much. Its like with Cardale in we are perpetually trying to hit big plays vs gaining 4-5 yards each play(I am "team Cardale" by the way). I don't know if JT solves that but it looks like we are overthinking our play calling and players like Jalin are trying to hard to hit the big play, hence stretching for extra yards and leaving yourself vulnerable.
The only major issue we had Saturday was Tyvis making a terrible angle on the long QB run.
If we are going to complain about things; I feel we have one real WR and about 7 wings/HB whatever you want to call them. Brown getting injured hurt(both of them). Due to that , most of our offensive plays are going east and west vs north and south. We can't go 3-0 in turnovers and expect to look good. We literally are giving away points. I would replace Jalins touches with Curtis at this point.
I actually like them alot. I like purple and black as a color combo.
I have put a combined billion hours into Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3, and New Vegas, so Fallout 4 is pretty much all my wife will allow anytime soon. I did recently buy the Final Fantasy 10HD remake and it was actually quite excellent the second time through after a decade and being older, the storyline resonated more. Whenever Final Fantasy 15 and the 7 remake come out those will be purchases as well.
I am in sales as well. Work remotely selling GPS tracking systems. We should start a support group.
Its funny you mention it. I was thinking how people would have been a lot calmer had we beat Hawaii 52-14 instead of 38-0 even though the margin is the same. I personally prefer defense because defense travels and weather isn't a factor. Also the difference in 2014(national title) and 2013 was primarily the defense being able to get off the field at the end of the year and causing some turnovers.
My favorite(sarcasm) is when they seem shocked that a lineman is intelligent and not an oversized bog creature. Also a big fan of any story that essentially ends with "them wanting it more" or "spending extra time in the film room". Most of these annoyances are more towards NFL. Reason being, you're paid millions of dollars and you want a pat on the back for studying film or running some extra routes(I know its the broadcast not the player).
Umm, we offered max money to Michael Redd and Ray Allen. They chose not to come here. Spending has never been an issue.
Ah yes, the Factory of Sadness
The other two are morons(and criminals) but I would be up for Dan Gilbert owning all 3. He has never had problem spending money and he hasn't been indicted by the FBI.
Not to nitpick but BC has recently had a great defense. They just held Florida St to like 17 points when BC's offense couldn't stay on the field.
If Cardale would have led JM more he would have had 2-3 TD's. (Note, I am pro Cardale starting, not trying to have a QB debate)
Plus his brother is coming here so I think its fair to root for the family.
A few things to remember. We used to have annoyingly close games to schools like Akron and Cincy(hah) all the time under Tress. I think last week we forgot what those felt like. Also, the MAC is a lot better as a conference then it was 10-20 years ago. Teams like Bowling Green and Toledo and Northern Ill. could probably win several games in most of the Big 5 conferences. Therefore, a 26 pt win against a MAC school isn't quite the same as it would have been a few years ago. With that being said I think after the VT game we were trying out things on offense. It will be interesting to see if our gameplan changes now that we are in Big Ten play.
I try to keep a rule of thumb of only eating fast food during peak hours. My reasoning is in theory they have their best managers/employees working the hardest hours so it gives me a better chance of not contracting a disease. I also used to have a boss who would only take us to places with open kitchens. We ate at chiptotle alot....
What an excellent site. On a side note, has anyone found a way to avoid the Sprint ads that pull your screen to the top consistently? The last thing I want to do is use an Ad Blocker but it sometimes makes the threads borderline unreadable.
Its the Sprint Ad, wouldn't allow me to pause or close it.
I think sometimes people forget we looked like crap last year several times. Namely on defense against lesser teams. As recently as ScUM did our team look not dominating and thats not counting some of the later year games. We beat Minnesota by 7, lost to VT, Navy was relatively close and Im pretty sure we needed Jalin Marshall to go Super Sayain to beat Indiana of all teams. This year so far its been our offense, not our defense.
In the Big Ten championship game and playoffs we didn't worry about touches. We did what worked. Sometimes I think we get too cute with our offense and try to do too much. Our offense should be pounding it with Zeke, getting Braxton the ball in space and utilizing play action.
Someday the NFL(and college) is going to go through a MLB level scandal with regards to steroids and PED's. Look at an offensive line 10-20 years ago and look now. I know there is better technology and training techniques but 6 foot 5 280 pound DE's who can run a 4 5 aren't exactly normal. If we stripped the sport of the PED's, the impacts would lower.
