If you were wondering why the Chargers have never won a Super Bowl, why Eli Manning refused to sign with them, or why they traded Drew Brees, this is it. The Chargers are like the Browns but in a much less depressing city. Frustrating.
This is the reason why Michigan must continue to lose. There is not enough losing in the universe for Michigan. Most arrogant fans in the B1G, Second most delusional behind Penn State. Michigan Must be Destroyed!
Are you giving Oregon no credit for forcing those turnovers and then scoring after each one? FSU had turned the ball over in previous games against good teams and still won the game because of their defense --- they had won 29 in a row. Oregon demolished them, they deserve more than "no" credit. If you give them no credit, then no team ever deserves any credit for anything and the whole game is about nothing other than mistakes.
I agree with Buckeye Knight. I think Ohio State showed in the Sugar Bowl that defense today does not have to be statistically dominating, but rather effective against the other team. Both Ohio State and Oregon had timely turnovers against teams who kind of imploded offensively as the game went on (FSU much more so than Alabama). Oregon also used its offense to effectively control the game in the second half against FSU. FSU, as a team, was in complete panic mode in second half and were essentially out of it mentally. Ohio State did much the same thing to Wisconsin who is undoubtedly a better team than they showed in the B1G Championship game.
I personally could not care less about the Heisman talk. Let's just beat Minnesota on Saturday.
This may be an unpopular opinion, but I still feel that the NCAA had to act in some way to punish Penn State. I also find it not at all surprising that there would be candid email-based discussions about how to proceed with the case. As such, I'm personally placing this in the "Why is This News?" category.
Looking the other way in a situation involving the sexual abuse of minors IN THE PENN STATE FOOTBALL LOCKER ROOM should not be acceptable to anyone. That it was done because the University elevated Football and their Hall-of-Fame coach's opinion above common decency and the law, to me, still rankles. Because of that, in my mind Penn State football got off too easily and the group of fans who continue to trumpet Joe Paterno's other qualities are completely missing the point.
What Penn State as a University did, and the way their fans, at least a vocal subset of their fans, continue to marginalize their coach and school's actions is disturbing. That PSU ultimately had a lesser punishment than U$C is awful and I personally am offended.
This has to be one of the most embarrassing performances since the 2006 National title game. 4 and 5 star players all over the field shredded. There is 0 excuse for it.
Sure, Maybe Braxton would've made this game different, but the rest is a bunch of crap. This team sucks right now and if Urban Meyer can't improve this team, he or his coordinators should be fired.
Face it, the Buckeyes were beaten in every phase tonight despite having bigger, stronger and faster players at every position. We'll see if they improve, but I see no need to sugar coat any of this. Ohio State sucked tonight, it's on Urban Meyer if they don't get better right now.
31-3. That's right, no touchdown for you Douchlema.
A little late, but WTH, I've been busy. Condensation ....
45-7 ... Illinios has looked pretty bad, this is the silver bullets' coming out party.
