Howard took the better part of two half hour CFB shows this week berating OSU saying they are not the number two team in the nation. Pollack sat there and smiled at him knowing it was all coming directly from butthurt.
Try disabling any adblocker you may be using. Sometimes they can be an issue.
If ESPN cannot figure out why they are losing eyeballs and page views it is because they employ "experts" like Desmond Howard and Mark May. If objectivity is an impossibility, that is a job you should not have and Howard is ridiculous.
Remember when the narrative was about "Hoke" and "He's a great coach" and "Michigan man" and all that stuff? And how many games and championships they were going to win? Now they are just replacing Hoke with Harbaugh. Same talk different season.
One hell of a get. Great player. Go Bucks!
How can any adult think it is ok to act like a child in front of the world?
Same here. As I watched it live I had no doubt he made it. Immediately said he had it and was confident about it. After watching the replays I was even more confident he made it. The only thing you have to worry about in those instances is the human element. So I am right there with you.
If only all the first down naysayers could just see that video, ttun fans would STILL say he didn't get it.
I see your point in him looking out for #1. He will without a doubt. He is not going to recruit for him or anything of the sort. My point is that he will not step in on Okudah or Dobbins for example. But he would definitely listen if they knocked on his door and wanted in. I think he would not pursue guys locked into OSU. As far as helping Meyer, that would be with Texas players not wanting to stay in Texas. I really do think he would be willing to help Urban in that instance.
Herman has much respect for Meyer. Sees him as the guy that gave him the final boost needed to start his head coaching career. From that respect he would not want to interfere with Meyers recruiting efforts in Texas for 2016 but after that it is open season. Still think he would be helpful to Meyer whenever possible in the future because of that mentor status.
That bunch up north had mortgaged their emotional lives on a win this year and now they are in foreclosure and are grasping at straws. It was their shot. Now it is gone. Had Harbaugh coached the way he should have by being a little more conservative with under two minutes left in the 3rd quarter and a ten point lead they could have won that game, but he didn't. Instead of taking responsibility for the loss, he will use excuses. He's hoping this story line will make the committee think they were robbed of a win which they were not. Harbaugh and his team lost that game. Google "Harbaugh is a sore loser" and look at what comes up. Same results of whining about refs costing his team games.
Good luck in all future endeavors Danny and thanks for all the great work!
Looking forward to the reaction from the Hokester.
Alabama will handle their business easily. Saban knows that a big win will mean a lot for his team starting the season. Robinson left, right, and up the middle will not suffice. Unless other playmakers step up big time, no chance for ttun.
Drive, drive on down the field....hum..hum...hum..
Men of the scarlet and gray.....hum...hum....hum..
Don't let them through that line...hum...hum...hum..
We've got to win this game today ...hum...hum....come on dude, sing it!
@CincyOSU - Would you rather see the Clery Act enacted on the school basically crippling its ability to educate to the point of its demise or would you rather the death penalty be brought to the football program? At least the U could continue to be an institution of higher learning without a football team. Understood it would probably not be either or but it helps to view it that way IMO.
Posted this in Buckshots and wanted to put it here in regards to other comments. Sorry if it bothers anyone. Basically refers to the possibility of PSU being brought down by the Clery Act. I feel the death penalty would be the best option at that point. The Clery Act would cripple the institution of learning.
My concern is that everyone is in line with "our penalty will be nothing compared to the next entities penalty, no need for us to do anything". And no one does a thing and it will all be forgotten. Nice recruiting class, football on Saturday afternoon, record contributions, all quickly brushed under the rug and forgotten again! I would rather see the death penalty on the football team than the clery act enacted. At least the U can survive that and education can continue
The "violation" is that the people in charge of athletics, the AD, the coach, for now address those two, did not react to the actions of the assistant coach known to be violating little boys. The assistant was "retired" swiftly in 1999 and given university perks to go quietly. To keep it very simple to these two items only shows the direct intent to cover up the "violations" to protect the image of the football program and the coach/administrators jobs. If this isn't Lack of Institutional Control along with failure to adhere to ethics given the extent and magnitude of this atrocity then what is? The NCAA should fold its tent and remove itself from authority if it fails to act against PSU. I would say the same if it was OSU or anyone else.

Go to any PSU site and they are still defending Paterno, the school, and that they will not receive NCAA punishment as no violations regarding rules were broken. Guess protecting the football team, the university, and the coach from public humiliation and the most damning press possible isn't LOIC after all.
Could be wrong but not one commentor, all seemingly PSU fans, ever brought up the fact that the thought/sight of anything PSU related could possibly be considered distasteful to those not drinking Paterno piss. Shows how far from the reality of the situation of devastation to lives these "fans" are. Exactly why the harshest punishment the NCAA could possibly hand out is necessary. Sorry to those that think otherwise, but without it, business as usual will prevail in good old Happy Valley.
I do remember how annoyed I was at the fact young boys were raped and it could have been addressed and some could have been spared. But the university brass including the head coach chose not to tarnish their rep and allow it to continue. This is a situation unlike any other, hopefully we never see another in our lifetime. If any situation deserves the death penalty it is this one, regardless of discipline outlines. It is the university at fault. The current team, coaches, etc. are innocent bystanders that will be unfortunately derailed by it but at times life is very unfair. The absolute message needs sent, period.
Really do not get how a kid committed to PSU for 2013 would do nothing less than run as far and as fast as possible to another school. There will be no bowls, scholarship reductions as bad as USC, along with other restrictions at best coming. That is if the death penalty is not enacted. On that note, I would get a kick out of a certain recruit committing there as opposed to ND which will most likely be his choice.
In order to say that PSU deserves no penalty is to say they would not have felt program crippling effects from a Sandusky indictment when it first became known. If it was found to have been covered up, it was soley for the purpose of avoiding that situation. Understand it is unfair for those currently with the team but to allow it to go unpunished is similarly unjust. Abhorrent crimes of all kinds are regularly tried decades later with harsh sentences imposed. And before anyone brings up the fact that this is criminal law, yes, the NCAA has nothing to do with criminal law enforcement but they do have a responsibility to enforce and promote a level playing field for universities and student athletes across the board regardless of the severity of the situation.
Wonder if it will be up with the other OSU stories on their website. Just looked and nothing there, unless I missed it. Imagine that.
