LMAO I agree with you GTH.. Weird choice in ties. AND he looks absolutely sick to his stomach. I bet he decommits at some point. (Just my opinion)
I recall Rece Davis saying during the game that Oregon had averaged 42 points per game this year. OSU held them to two touchdowns. That's insane.
What this team and coaching staff was able to do in this three game postseason run was absolutely remarkable. Period.
haha Yes, I actually do recall a very small cloud of dust or pollen in my office as I watched it Tuesday morning. They must need to change the filters in this hell-hole!
I agree with you 1000%, my friend. We don't need Purdue and Indiana to make some kind of miraculous surge in the future. The B1G just needs Penn St and TSUN back in the Top 25 on a consistent basis. Mich St., Nebraska, and Wisconsin will always be lingering around somewhere in the rankings. If the B1G gets back to keeping five and six teams ranked EVERY week, the talking heads will STFU about the conference. Only then, though.
I truly feel Penn ST is on their way, and maybe Hairball can figure out the train wreck up north (eventually).
PS: Us mauling our way to a national title this year has to help a little, I think. lol
Tom Rinaldi's video segment tied in with all this was just heart-wrenching to watch. It instantly made me think of my nephew and godson and the "what if..." Sad, but inspiring. A child that keeps fighting and wont give up. Sounds just like a certain team I live and die by.
They should give that kid a ring, too.
Right there with you, my friend. That vid gave me chills - literally. (All four times that I've watched it)
Whomever put that together - WELL DONE!
EXACTLY! I think OSU was more than ready to take some knees and end the game. Oregon extended those final minutes. They got what they deserved for that.
Unfortunately, I do understand this.... UGGGH!
"At my signal, unleash hell." - Urban Meyer
That's the greatest trick I've ever seen.
I was just about to link this, also. lol
Good read, though.
They wont give us any respect--so we'll just take it from 'em!! Hell YES! GO BUCKS!!!!
OSU 28 MSU 24
*That includes Mich St. getting the ball back with 3 minutes left for one last drive to win the game.*
After a couple of chunk plays, a pass interference penalty goes against Doran Grant and gives them a first down and goal at the one yard line, with 49 seconds left, and all three of their timeouts. The mighty OSU defensive line stops MSU's attempts to power the ball in the endzone on first, second, and third down, setting up a fourth and goal from the two. Dantonio then calls their last timeout to set up a potentially game-winning final play. Connor Cook is then sacked by Michael Bennett on a play action pass to end the game--and end all of MSU's hopes and dreams.
OK, then - I'm NOT crazy. There really was a hillbilly screaming through my TV all night - "Go back to Florida you liar!!" Hahaha Stay classy, Penn St.
Minnesota hopping in there is awesome. Gives the conference four teams in again.
..AND gives us (potentially) another ranked team to maul during this run.
Great read, fellas!
I'm calling 52-24, with 14 of their points coming in the 4th quarter against our second/third team D.
O - H!!
Maybe one of the biggest upsets in sports history--EVER? Considering how big boxing still was at that time. There was no UFC or Bellator or MMA...
HAHA That's EXACTLY what I was thinking!!!
I wholeheartedly agree with Cplunk. I've mentioned on here a couple of times about how the selection committee scares the hell out of me...
I feel the ONLY WAY the B1G gets any respect this year (as always) is that the conference HAS to win these marquee OOC games. The stage is set for us to crawl out of the shadows this season---but we HAVE to win those games.
PS: I absolutely agree with Mr. Rowland. I, too, think this will be the best OSU team that Coach Meyer has fielded. Way more balanced offensive attack, and a much improved defense as a whole.
That HAS to be a scary thought for anyone that has us on their schedule this year. lol
WOW... A backcourt of Irving, Wiggins, and LeBron?! Just wow......
The only thing Tress was guilty of was being an "old school philosophy" coach. He loved his Buckeye family, his Buckeye program, his state of Ohio. He loved the North. Sure, maybe he did receive an e-mail about a small, minute few of his kids that (potentially) did trade a couple of their trinkets. Trinkets that was THEIRS. Trinkets that they earned and owned. Had they waited one more year they could of put them on Ebay and sold them for whatever the hell they wanted. Because they owned them, and could of did whatever the hell they liked with them. None of us will ever truly know what happened with how it was handled. Was Tressel just the fall guy? Did his old school ways and faithfulness in the old gods end up being his downfall? We will never truly know. Nonetheless, we had to watch his public trial. Then, unfortunately, we had to watch his old school philosophies and his old school honor and pride be his imminent downfall. As he sat there--bowed and broken--looking out at us with that old, honor-filled smirk, while heckles of "cheater" and "traitor" screamed at him over and over. He just calmly sat there, and layed his head on the chopping block. Staring out at us with that old, honor-filled smirk.
First ever non-football-related reply, but... I can not wait for GoT this week!! I hope it's pure epic awesomeness! lol Have a great weekend, my friends!
I do agree, the new playoff system has forever changed the traditional bowl lineup. It's what 'we' wanted, though. I'd be a complete liar if I said this "Playoff Committee" didn't scare the hell out of me. It seems really 'corporate'; It seems really 'stacked'--and I absolutely dread the day a truly deserving team gets left out for that second SEC team because "The Commission" chose to do so. I found a little video interview with Mark Dantanio, on that station's website that we all hate (lol), and I completely agree with what he said. I'm paraphrasing here, but, it was to the tune of saying that only teams with a conference championship should be in it. Which, I completely agree. BUT, what happens when all the top conferences have a one-loss champion?? Guess we will just have to sweat it all out...and wait. SMFH...
