Eh, I just say to myself "guess he doesn't want to meet the President next year" and move on. It's all just plug and play with Meyer, Warriner, and Johnson. Best coaching staff in cfb.

If he fails at UM, and I think he will, put UM football out of its misery. He is their last hope to right that wreck. They went for the spread guy and failed. Then they tried to get their version of Tressel and failed. Now, they are hoping this whack job is their version of Urban. Other than Ohio State, I think all the old powers in the midwest are always going to be relegated to also-ran status (ND, UNL, PSU, UM). ND can still recruit elite national talent, unlike the others mentioned, but it'll forever be mediocre bc it hires mediocre coaches and recruits soft players.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

ND is just a minor league for coaches. When they get ready for the big's they get the call from Urban. Ohio State competes with the Alabama's while ND competes with the Michigan's. Two relics living off the past, with not a bright future.

ND's been pretty much irrelevant on the field the last 25 years, outside of one fluke season. Not even in OSU's zip code in that same time frame looking at BCS wins, top 5 finishes, national championship wins, Heisman winners, etc. Rarely does OSU lose to ND an in state kid that didn't go to a Catholic school.

Comment 19 Apr 2015

If LE really cared about academics he should have gone to Harvard or Princeton. Better academics than ND, same irrelevant football.

In all seriousness though, I wonder if OSU would be better served in getting the actual position coaches involved more in recruiting. Read that Fick was LE's main recruiter and he said that he didn't have much of a relationship with Warriner, whereas he really developed a bond with the ND OL coach.  

Comment 19 Apr 2015

Not worried it all. Urban will replace him with a higher ranked player. It just stings a bit the top 2 ranked Ohio players are not coming to OSU after a national title winning season. ND pull is still strong, what with the fugly girls, lousy weather, and middle of nowhere Indiana location.

I am envious of UK, no doubt. The one year OSU had Oden and Conley was a special year for OSU. It's like that every year for UK. 

Comment 29 Mar 2015

No one has ever accused Cal of being an X and O's great like Izzo. Personally, I don't dislike him. No real evidence that he himself was dirty at Umass or Memphis. I get the sense that, like Saban, people dislike him simply for winning too much with a stacked deck. People dislike OSU football for the same reasons too.

Comment 07 Mar 2015

Buckeyes/Browns/Cavs allways. Temporarily "adopted" the Cowboys in the 90's when the Browns left, only because I disliked the 49ers a lot and that was the big NFC rivalry of the mid 90's. Used to be Indians fan but gave up on them once I realized Dolan is too cheap to build a contender. It's inconceivable for me to switch allegiance, even though I've been long gone from Ohio and move around regularly and I'd be easy to adopt a new local team. I'd rather not follow the sport then switch my allegiance, which is what I did with baseball.

Comment 04 Mar 2015

So to summarize this thread, it was started by a troll with multiple personality disorder asking about the whereabouts of one of his personalities?

Comment 02 Mar 2015

I find it interesting that everyone is just ASSuming Harbaugh is going to turn that program into a top power. No way does Michigan belong in that top 10 list at all. A program that has been pretty much irrelevant the entire BCS era and the new playoffs era.

Comment 27 Feb 2015

So you're saying Michigan's staff would NOT do the same if they had the lead on a Glenville prospect? I doubt any coaching staff in the country would have acted differently in the same situation. Nothing to see here.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

Browns have the worst luck with owners. The one prior was the guy that helped broker the deal for Art and his son cared more about soccer. This one is a carpetbagging, no good SOB who tried to defraud truck drivers and who is clueless.

It would be nice if someday a person who grew up in Ohio as a diehard fan bought the team. One can dream.

As for the re-brand. Yawn. I'd have liked to seen that mock up helmet with the dog on it as their new helmet and brand.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

A poster on the Pitt rivals board said this:

Again, all money raised goes to one place: PSU. 

And of that money, per direction of PSU's Four Diamond Fund (not at the direction of any donor), less than 15% goes directly to patient care, family support, or is directly and immediately to fund any research. 

Per Thon and Four Diamond Fund's own annual reports, the vast majority goes into endowment funds and operations reserves at Penn State Hershey.

Can you say, conflict of interest?

Great comment on Deadspin:

Went to PSU for undergrad, got my first masters there. Got my professional degree elsewhere. There are some incredibly brilliant people at PSU at the leading edge of the intellect distribution, but the overwhelming majority are a bit, erm, lacking.

THON had great results, but to me it always seemed to serve as a vessel for, fraternities, sororities, and those that crave attention to pat themselves on the back. There are a lot of people who participate selflessly, but the most vocal element are those that want the attention for "doing a great thing." To boot, most of the fundraising doubles as a social/ pledge event for a lot of the greeks. -Great results, questionable means.

I can't say I entirely disagree with Olbermann.
