Tress was a boa-constrictor. Urban is the Tasmanian devil. End result is the same, how they get there is different.
1990 vs. TTUN. Greg Frey's 4th down waggle, Grbac whining about the crowd noise (back when it could be called as a penalty), and their kicker drilling the field goal to seal the win. Ugh.
Not my first, but I was at that game. Will never forget standing there watching their team celebrate with their band in their little corner of the stadium. Pissed me off to no end. I hope I never forget that feeling of hatred for TTUN.
Interesting point about the stark increase in talent level since Braxton's freshman year.
Let's be honest. Cardale played REALLY well in the three biggest games of the year against better competition than JT faced all year. But his stats in the playoffs weren't "amazing" outside of the Devin Smith Show vs. Wiscy. Not saying he is fool's gold or anything like that, just maybe not a large enough sample size. And we can't expect him to complete 70 yard bombs and hang 42 points on everyone, every game. Expectation is the root of all heartache.
Also, JT didn't have Zeke running wild behind the Slobs, or the same swarming 3rd-down defense that Cardale benefited from in the last three games, when both of those units totally elevated. Perhaps Cardale had something to do with it, who knows.
Based on what we have seen, I think JT is the reasonably obvious choice.
Gotta go with golf for the above-stated reasons.
He might be a nut job, but he has proved that he can coach - and wins wherever he goes. TTUN will be no exception, if he can flip the program fast enough before the blue-bloods turn on him. I don't know if they'll win 10 games and/or upset OSU this year - but neither would surprise me. I believe RichRod is the only first-year UM coach to lose to OSU.
He may say he isn't the savior, but I've seen more #4 jerseys up here north of the border than I have in 20 years. All the sporting goods stores sell them, and they're flying off the shelves. They want and need him to be the savior, and he is smart to embrace it. If he goes down in flames, it will look better for him that he embraced it rather than showing the lukewarm off-center behavior he has shown since taking the gig.
I live in the Plymouth/Canton area. We're 15 minutes from AA, and about an hour from East Lansing. Huge get for the Bucks!!!
Don't forget about Archie jumping up and down at the goal line like a teenager as Zeke cruised on by.
For Holy Buckeye, my wife was having a reaction to cold medicine, with her heart rate in the 160s during that minute leading up to and through the play. I think mine was beating even faster. I collapsed on the floor after Jenkins made the catch, then calmly got up and took the wife to the emergency room. You know, priorities and all. :-)
Ordered both. What's not to love about getting these in Blu-Ray AND supporting the awesome work done here?
Zeke don't need no stinking nickname.
Hoping to see the playoff jerseys back on sale somewhere.
M*ch*g*n fans are the absolute worst in all manners of speaking, win, lose, or otherwise. I hope that program never wins another football game from now until Jesus comes back.
By winning all the marbles while having a loss to VT and beating an awful TTUN, it proved that TTUN does not have to be strong in order for tOSU to be strong.
The version on Fanatics does not have black shoulder numbers. This is the key. :-)
Awake on game day to "Hang On Sloopy" alarm, hang OSU flag outside, drink coffee from OSU mug with the broken handle, put on whatever OSU t-shirt I have designated for the season, then 15 minutes before kick-off pull on whichever OSU jersey seems to have the most mojo for the game at hand.
I respect the program, loathe the fans.
I suppose it is entirely possible that UofM knows Harbaugh wants to stay in the NFL, but felt like they needed to show their base that they made the best possible offer/effort, hence the "leak".
Interesting that the first tweet came from "Cordale 10". Was it ever confirmed to be his?
Born and raised in NW OH, lived north of the border for the past 20 years. 90's sucked; since then, not too shabby.
Nice to see us going north of the border to take quality players versus that team up north always pilfering our blessed state.
Fanatics.com already has the # 15 home jersey for sale. $150.
These are a perfect combination of the "traditional" and the new "chrome" uni (which I happen to love).
I'm in favor of voting these in as our new permanent home uniforms.
If - and it's a big "if" - TTUN hires the "right" coach, he'll flip that program in a season or two because they have the talent and resources.
