Thanks brother. I recall this time last year I was foolishly questioning the relevance of that school as well as the luster of this game. Then, some fellow 11 dubbers led me back to the path of hatred, and of course, then The Game happened. When Hoke went for it all- it's moments like that that make these games historical and memorable. Go Bucks!
He had a carton of Big League Chew on the line. You know how hard that is to come by?
I don't buy it. This game is worthless win or lose? If I were a fan or player of that shit team, I couldn't think of ending the season any better than beating the B1G title hopefuls and ruining a shot (however remote) at the NC for the hated rivals. He says this only because he thinks they have no shot. If they were to win, his tune would change dramatically.
I worry about overlooking/disrespecting a desperate, hungry, pissed off team this weekend, and this game matters so much more than I would have given it credit for in recent years, and they, much like MSU will fight to the very end. I agree, however, nothing will save Hoke's job, but even he has something to fight for.
Last thing while my stream of consciousness is still running: anyone who says shit like this is managing expectations- expect to lose so you are not disappointed if it happens, and elated if the unexpected occurs (see: Fans, Browns) I recall their fans even being elated with the close loss last year.
BUCKEYES, DEFEND! THE ENEMY IS COMING!
I know I am not the only one who thought you were changing your icon.
Will the playoff committee take this into consideration?
I don't think they would take a chance on someone who does not have elite head coaching experience. I would take Tom Herman, but I think UM is thinking even bigger. They need a home run with the AD and HC hires. If they miss on yet another it is lights out for them. I mean 10 more years lights out. And while there may be an under the radar super-star in the making (see: Tressel, Jim of yore) I do not believe they have the balls right now to take another chance. They need one of the H-baughs, Chip Kelly, Pete Carroll, or even Bill Cowher or someone who still has coaching left in the tank.
This made me laugh! My mom and grandma always said, "You are the funniest person ever! You should do stand-up!"
I thought, "Oh shit, I better keep my day job."
One YARD, Bob!
I don't care about "vanilla". It's when I, as a stupid fan with no football edumacation, can predict a QB draw simply by seeing the formation and the motion that makes me scratch my head. How can I predict that? If I can see it, Narduzzi is going to have a field day unless our offense becomes less predictable. That is my one and honestly only fear in this game: if you are going to call a predictable game plan you are stacking the deck in favor of your opponent.
Hey Connor and Co......:
warren harding is wildly considered...
The worst?!?!?!? That really is WILD.
I do listen, and he is a class act. Always referencing 11 warriors and giving a huge nod to the writers here and always prefacing his statements with an earnest "They're really good guys over there..." So Beau knows something.
Here is Vonn Bell on that first TD
I still think he is going to be one of the best, but this is the image that came to mind...
I thought the risk of running this type of defense was the threat of getting burnt deep. In fact, I recall Urban saying that risk was worth it, saying giving up one or two big plays is going to happen. Why is everyone so surprised? They gave up 3 big plays, and on one if Vonn Bell turns his f-ing head he makes an interception probably 9/10 times!
How about something more subtle, like a positive message but misspelled such as:
"Hale to the Victors!"
It would continue to convey they just cannot get anything right!
Holy Buckeye? 4th and long in OT to Jenkins? Those are just 2 of the season/championship saving plays made by Krenzel off the top of my head, and I know there were more. It was a team effort, but there were individual plays made by Krenzel that saved the championship hopes and made those hopes a reality.
DJ, I have a feeling you rolled quite a bit of these back in the day, maybe even how you'll be spending the bye week, hmm?
Too many people just assume we're going to waltz through this season, and already looking to the next one. Good God, we're three weeks into this one, and we're already spoiling it by contemplating what next year's going to look like, and this is coming from a Browns fan who's mantra is "There's always next
I don't blame you for the question, though, as I do believe it warrants an answer, in due time. Just not three weeks into it and you've crowned JT and the Buckeyes B1G champs and post-season winners. It would, hypothetically, be a good problem to have.
I know all of three people that went to V-Tech, and they are 3 of the coolest people I have ever known- one of whom changed my life positively forever. Because of those three and the tragedies you all faced years ago there is a special place in my heart for you all. Having said that, I am very unhappy with the outcome and hope to return the favor in a postseason rematch or next year in your house! Good luck, and I echo Ytown's sentiments- get to the ACC champ and knock Winston back to the Publix he crawled out from.
2 Games!!! 2 years would be too few.
Everything I saw though has a solution and it doesn't include the firing of anybody. That is why I am still optimistic for this team. I am more concerned with how the young guys can respond and congeal rather than implode. JT, with some experience should be able to expand his field of vision, and the line can only/will only get better under Warriner, and Special Teams I feel flukily under-performed, (i.e. a weird happenstance we shouldn't see again, I hope!) If this team will respond positively the "Power of the Unit" will grow stronger. It is unfortunate how we saw things unfold, but really, this is a huge learning lesson for the young guys and the coaching staff. Let's get back to work and to 2-1! Go Bucks!
Could agree more....
so I will until I cannot agree more. Done.
