There was talk a while back that Mclean, Burrell, and Settle all wanted to play together. Any chance on getting Mclean and Settle?
First thought that came to my mind is the scene from the The Wire when the corner scatters at the sight of Omar. Spence is like our Omar, back from the dead.
Only time I ever remember a big package deal coming together was in another sport: UM's infamous Fab 5.
Fun fact: Lee Corso once called a timeout during a game in 1976 and had his team take a picture in front of the scoreboard showing Indiana leading Ohio State as it was the first time in 25 years that had happened. Think that pissed Woody off just a bit as IU ended up losing 47-7.
I really do think Braxton would be better off coming back to OSU and switching to H-back to showcase his talents. Right now if he were to declare for the draft as an athlete, he's probably a 3rd rounder. He comes back to OSU and has a spectacular season in the "Percy" position, he's probably a 1st rounder.
I get a nice chuckle thinking those delusional fools up North actually believe Harbaugh or Miles will come there. Let's see, Harbaugh is a hot, in demand NFL coach, unlike a washed up Pete Carroll back in the day, and he is going to step down to the college game? Also, his ego is really going to allow him to admit his brother is the better coach due to the Super Bowl loss? I don't think so.
As for Miles, hmm. Leave an SEC power, with access to the best recruits, to come to dumpster fire Michigan with no recruiting base? A program that has been irrelevant for the last decade?
I'm gonna sit back and enjoy the meltdown when they end up hiring a no-name like Hoke again.
I'm just glad he isn't going to Michigan like he originally was planning to.
Are any receivers now showing serious interest (Christian Kirk perhaps) considering JTB has shown an ability to get the ball to his receivers?
Even Pryor tweeted out a couple of times he would be putting up monster numbers too if he he played in Cam's offense during Cam's Heisman year. I was like "no shit sherlock, but it was YOU who insisted Tress run a pro-style". Pryor cost himself a ton of money insisting Tress mold him into a pro-style qb. The numbers he would have put up running a zone-read offense in the weak B1G would have got him drafted in the first round, just like Cam.
It's funny how the Hawkeye fans have turned on Ferentz. I remember back in the day circa 2002, when they were winning, whenever a rumor of Ferentz leaving for the NFL was discussed, Hawkeye fans would be quick to dispell it saying he loves Iowa and he won't even consider leaving until his kids graduate high school. Now, mired in mediocrity and stuck with his ridiculous contract, they can't wait to put the boot to his ass. Winning is all the difference.
Saban wants no part of this OSU team. His defense is built to stop slow plodding primitive offenses like LSU. He would get his doors blown off, like he did when he faced Johnny Football, against this OSU team. Thus, his crying for rules changes to stop these kind of offenses.
Yep. Braxton is in a tough position. Urban is probably going to have a sit down with him and point out the careers of Denard Robinson, Terrell Pryor, and Tim Tebow. Of those 3, Robinson is the only one having a legit career in the NFL. Braxton as the H-Back next year would showcase his talents as the legit next Percy Harvin for the NFL.
Herman called the game we all wanted him to call. Used all the weapons, was unpredictable. OSU is not going to lose many games this way. The defense, on the other hand, was a sieve. Only marginal improvement from last year. Urban better figure out what is the problem, whether it's Fickell, Coombs, or Ash and get it fixed in the off season.
Michigan is going to get another shit coach. No elite coach will go there. The time and demographics have changed. Not many great in-state recruits, MSU a power, no chance at elite Ohio recruits. Their time was in the past, like Nebraska's.
Always thought Cooper really expanded recruiting. Remember landing guys like Rambo, Boston, Wiley. Just seems like he did it more often than JT.
Still can't believe JT is gone. As the saying goes "you don't know what you have until it's gone"
Let Michigan be lousy and let the rest of the conference teams, whose fans all hate OSU, be lousy. Easier to maraude through a shitty schedule. If OSU loses a game along the way, then it doesn't deserve a playoff spot. An undefeated OSU, even in a lousy B1G, will always be a playoff team. A 1 loss OSU won't.
These guys are all losers. Wish the networks would show hot OSU coeds and not these fat middled aged guys.
Rest of the country should just separate from the SEC: let the SEC have its own playoffs and everyone else can have their own playoffs. What a farce this current ranking system is; it would have been better to maintain the BCS and expand to 4.
Sad. Really thought he was going to be an Eddie George clone when he signed on.
Personally, I wish the B1G had aligned itself with ESPN instead of starting its own network. We'd have ESPN shilling for the B1G and recruits being brainwashed. We'd still be able watch every OSU game on TV. It was a mistake to let the SEC get ESPN.
The thing about Tressel, he was unpredictable in the big games. Michigan in '06 being the most prominent example. Urban and Hermann go into shells in big games and are so predictable.
I had heard PSU's OL was so bad I was expecting Bosa and Washington to live in the backfield, but that wasn't the case. It seemed Hackenberg had a lot of time for most of his throws, which were screens.
Just hope SMU hires him in the off season. If I'm Urban I offer Scott Frost from Oregon a boatload of money to come call the plays.
Yeah, the 4 team playoff is not for long. I just don't see Delaney and the B1G AD's sitting still if the B1G champion gets passed up for a playoff spot, regardless of the perceived quality of the league. This is still America where the almighty $ still rules.
