True, and we probably got spillover from people tuning in to watch whatever was the 3:30 game in their market. But ratings are ratings.
Vengeance will not be complete until we rob them of a national championship with a Heisman candidate from Ann Arbor, who goes on to have a 20 year HOF career in the NFL
Dat boy good!
on a serious note (not that the above comment was not genuine), TP continues to surprise me, even as a believer in his ability to become a 10-year NFL player - which is a realitvely exclusive category. He is a freak athlete, and we all knew that, but this is another example of him surpassing even that praise by continuing to work and prove he is not content with receiving extraordinary genes. Work ethic aside, once he set aside his chase for a QB job, he has far surpassed my expectations at the WR position. It is is difficult position to learn on the fly at the NFL level, and he is showing both a willingness to put in the work as well as a much higher aptitude and skill set than I expected he would ever achieve.
Were proud of you TP!
The shoe can be plenty loud, and I've been to the big games like USC and a few others to prove that. The trouble with the shoe is that the big name team is almost always the home team. If we had reversed the situation, and we're playing the #2 team at home, and hadn't had much to cheer about in a decade - it would have been deafening. It's all about context.
I thought they would be 8 or 9. It's tough to justify a top ranking when you can't threaten a mediocre team downfield, and special teams can't seem to execute several of the the most practiced and routine plays in the book. But I think part of this is the hype getting a little out of control. OSU is clearly not quite back "there" in the top four yet. Maybe with a little growing up, next year we will be experienced and mentally tough enough to finish games like that one. Until then, congrats to PSU, and we'll keep at it and try to get better I'm sure.
Yeah, OSU isn't getting DPJ, but that won't stop us from trying!
Well, we won't have the opportunity to test any of these theories until the Bucks play one or more of 'Bama, Clemson, Louisville, and/or possibly Washington and Houston... Those are the only teams in my estimation that can test OSU unless the team reverts to whatever mindset they had last year.
As long as you are safe from flooding, prep your house, and you can enjoy a hurricane party. Now if it looks like it may be a category 5, I'd make plans out of town.
Don't worry, DJ. McCall looks stupid wearing that too. It's just that he's good at something /s
Any formula that says this year's edition if ttun is one of the top 5 teams in the country is a joke. It just destroys their credibility.
So, and ACL is now considered "not that bad" or whatever the exact phrase was that Birm was tweeting? Lol. I think that is a fairly significant injury, even if not career ending as it once was.
Dabo just looks physically like a textbook example of inbreeding - and then there's the name. That just makes it comical. I almost feel bad for the guy, but he is paid too well.
You read well
It is disappointing to see two Ohio kids playing so well for other teams, with both Trubusky and Kizer putting up more than 400 yards passing. Apparently they are good enough to play at OSU, coach.
on the flip side, I am happy that a lesson was learned that year about putting all the eggs into one QB basket.
Why not both?
He runs the Elite 11 camp, but as far as I know he had no connection to OSU. Maybe Meyer called Dilfer to ask his opinion on JT's fit for our offense?
Herman will be a huge upgrade for them, and can probably find a way to keep most or all of the recruits that TX wants
I thought the same thing. It didn't look bad at all, and the contact was certainly not violent or awkward. I'm happy he's ok.
Holy shit. I thought that game was over. I turned over to watch the crew to kill time until Clemson-Louisville!
Clemson is going to crush Louisville
I am changing my prediction: Clemson is going to dismantle Louisville tonight.
How lame is that? A rock from a desert on the other side of the country? Isn't there anything cool that the school can actually connect to?
I can't believe players have not been seriously injured doing that before every game. Or maybe they have been, but the team keeps doing it anyway. Stupid, either way, in my opinion.
Oh, and Texas looks like it may be entering the Tom Herman derby by sea son's end.... But Petrino would fit well at LSU or Texas - whichever job Herman declines.
OSU should crush both ttun and Wisconsin. Both teams have significant holes, and the talent disparity between them and the Buckeyes is glaring.
I don't think Louisville is quite as good as the hype. They haven't played anyone - and the FSU team is now being revealed as fairly mediocre. Clemson has no such questions about talent. They should win by at least 2 scores I think.
Oklahoma may yet salvage their season, but still can't make up enough ground to make the playoff.
Stanford was surprisingly disappointing - I didn't see the whole game, but expected much better from that team and coach. Washington can't really be that good, can they?
