A few more losses to Meyer may send him to an early retirement. Staying around into your 70's has generally not been a good look recently (Bowden, Paterno). Saban is 65, so I give him 5 years tops. Even if he sticks around past that, his age will be used against him in recruiting and I can't imagine him having the fire to recruit in his 70's.
Once Saban retires things will get really fun in recruiting.
After OSU I don't follow other teams, but I'm all about enjoying watching certain teams lose: ND, Bama, scUM, PSU
This cheap organization, owned by a billionaire, is begging for a taxpayer subsidized stadium. Federal govt. needs to step in to outlaw this practice, since the states can't see what's in their own best interest.
Can he go back to OSU and work out with the team to keep in shape? Finish up the degree too.
Is Harbaugh going to strip down to his underwear in protest of this decision, like the Mongolian wrestling coaches did? Actually, I could see Harbaugh doing that in a game this year.
I wonder if we can get to 10 5 stars? Never been done before. Okaduh, Browning, Akers, Holmes are still in play. Possibly Garrett or Pryor could get the bump up. Probably lose Dobbins if Akers comes. Shaun Wade could flip too.
I felt the same way when I read Lawrence Funderburke, Jr. was coming to OSU. I was a Sr. in high school when his dad transferred to OSU.
B1G Coaches with DUI's or who pled out of DUI's: (Feel free to add to the list if you know of any more)
1. Keith Williams, WR Coach, University of Nebraska
2. Jim Harbaugh, Head Coach, University of Michigan
From 21 games below 500 to now 10 games against UM (I will always count the win in 2010). Tress and Urban made up a lot of ground. I really want to over take them in the all time series tally. They will have nothing to talk about then.
I think that is true for the most part, but hires like Zach Smith make you wonder. Not saying Smith is a bad coach by any means, as he has proven to be an excellent recruiter. However, most felt that Smith was hired as a favor to Earl Bruce. Can you really say that in terms of coaching wide receivers Smith was one of the very best at the time he was hired?
Magic said in the late 80's that the Cavs were the team of the 90's. They would have been if not for MJ.
Reading corn boards, it seems he had has 2 priors in other states before he was hired by them. Meaning, he was hired by Riley and they tried to keep it under wraps.
Yeah, if not for Stanley Jackson's inept play we could have prevented them from that 1/2 a title, the only one they've had in the last 65 years.
'98 was the worst. Clearly the best team in the country and nothing to show for it.
Reading these 90's recaps reminds me again why I hope Michigan is never good. I was in college and remember all those losses well. F the rivalry. I hope they sink and become another Minnesota. A one time power no longer relevant. If Harbaugh manages to flop I think that will be the case.
Flipping a guy committed to Alabama would be even more fun than that
Probably would have lost some of the close games. I'll remember the good times from the 90's. When Coop got it going from 93-98, those were fun teams to watch.
Can Bosa say the hell with the Chargers and come back to OSU to play this year?
Pretty sad that so many people tie their self worth to $200+ sweat shop produced shoes. If Nike and Jordan were so "noble" about what the brand stood for they would pay their third world country workers more and sell the shoe at a more affordable price ($50?).
No, I don't want the OSU football team putting the Lebron logo on anything. It doesn't make sense to put a basketball player's logo on a football jersey, and it would also make it look like OSU is playing "me too" to UM. Now, if the basketball team did it I have no problem with it since they've already done it in the past.
Personally, I prefer Under Armour to Nike and just like the X better than the Swoosh. I wonder what bid OSU got from Under Armour.
Lil Nicky was lying his ass off talking to Bama while coach of the Dolphins, yet tries to sabotage a kid's future? A kid who played for free for him while he earned $7 mill a year? That just looks bad. I'm glad he's getting a lot of negative publicity over this.
I love how the scUMers are throwing a fit. For some laughs read the comments section in the Cleveland PD. They are citing their (bogus) 11 national championships, but the reality is only 2 AP titles. They can't come to grips that no one cares about their success when Wyatt Earp and Abe Lincoln were season ticket holders.
Of course those mouth breathers down south are saying the poll is bogus because they have 10 AP titles to OSU's 5, but they fail to realize that for much of its history college football was a regional sport and the championships were just voted on and not settled on the field. Most years #1 did not play #2 in any bowl game. At least with the playoffs no team with a claim can duck another team. Really only the last 2 titles are legit and it will be more so once the playoffs expands to 8.
