Going into the championship game I thought Oregon was better than Bama. I guess I was wrong.
I agree, at least when it comes to the "Urbans fumble strategy" thread. Probably the biggest offender.
This is just brilliant.
Agreed. The difference between 1969 TTUN and 2015 TTUN is that Harbaugh has inherited a dumpster fire while Schembecler inherited a team that went 8-2 the previous season.
I would love to see a national championship in basketball but I also realize that OSU does not hold the same prestige in basketball that it does in football. You have to be at least 55 years old to have been alive when OSU won its only basketball national championship. Not trying to say OSU will never win another basketball national championship though. All I'm trying to say is we should not jump ship on Matta so quickly and end up with a coach that gets us only 10 to 17 wins a season.
My final thoughts on the matter is that if the basketball postseason worked the same way as the football postseason then Matta likely would have won OSU national championships in the 2006-2007 and 2010-2011 seasons.
Lou Holtz is retiring. At least that is what he said in May of last year.
I'm not saying these 2 seasons of mediocrity are acceptable, but I don't believe they are enough to fire Matta after all the other great seasons we have had under him. Just 2 seasons ago when the Bucks got to the Elite 8 was described as Matta's best coaching job. What these 2 mediocre seasons are/were missing is leadership. Leadership can't be taught and so far none of the seniors are trying to step up to be leaders.
Also, I don't really think your football comparison is that good. OSU is a football school so it can always bring in elite coaching and Jim Tressel had at least won 4 FCS national championships before coming to OSU. How would you measure how good some of these young coaches are in college basketball? All that have taken the jump to schools in good conference have been let downs so far. Look at Minnesota with Richard Pitino.
And replace Thad with who exactly? We are not going to be bringing in any of the elite coaches. From what I have seen the last few years, teams who have coaching changes end up getting worse than they were under the previous staff.
He was right, the Buckeyes were not as strong as an SEC team, the Buckeyes were stronger than an SEC team.
I would like the 2nd one.
I'm pretty sure that's Cardale's B1G Championship Game MVP trophy.
TCU had no wins over any team that finished in the top 15. People who use who has the best loss as their argument know they can't argue with their wins. TCU had no signature wins this season and therefor rightfully left out of the playoff.
According to the NCAA's logic, covering up child rape is not as bad as covering up memoribilia being traded for Tatoos. If they will restore Paterno's wins than they should definitely restore OSU's 2010 wins.
TCU needs to get over themselves. They had no wins against any team that finished in the top 15 and the Big 12 was exposed as the weakest power 5 conference during bowl season. End of discussion.
Loved it when students started chanting "Just like football".
I guarantee Oregon would have went for that last TD if they were the ones winning.
Probably the best senior class since 2002. They and the whole team played with heart.
This is the greatest night of my life! Congrats Bucks!
He should have just gone out of bounds.
I thought that personal foul was on the Oregon player?
Offense needs to keep the momentum and everything will go well.
I'm so glad they did not go for it on 4th down.
Need to force turnovers.
Go Bucks! Beat the Ducks!
