I'm going to say Bucks -52
1-Notre Dame My dad hated them, my brothers hate them, I hate them. For too many reasons to list here. Its like they think they invented football. And they are always over rated.
2-Penn St.- Ever since Joe Pa laid that 63-14 beat down on Cooper I've hated them. Woody was spinning in his grave after that game. And I hated their plain ass crappy uniforms.
3-Florida St - I was at the Shoe when Bowden brought his unknown Seminoles in and smacked down my Buckeyes. Hated them ever since. This program is the dirtiest in the nation, there is no doubt about it in my mind.
4-Southern Cal- I got real tired of watching them kick the Bucks asses in the Rose Bowl. And Pete Carroll was (is) pure scum.
BuckGnome- you beat me too it. JT turned this whole series around, and he did it quickly. No more fear of the Wolverweasels, no more stupid Cooper losses to inferior Meatchicken teams. No more "its cool to be a fan of that team up north". JT made it uncool to be a UM fan. And he won them when it counted. BRAVO!
Happy Birthday man. I don't remember much about being 30. Raising kids will do that. About the only thing I can tell you is the older you get, the faster time seems to go by. Enjoy kids while you can, because they will be grown and gone before you know it.
Holy Buckeye. I was on the sideline where Jenkins caught the pass. It was like I could reach out and touch him. Something I'll never forget.
Finally! Some good news! I was extremely bummed when he decommitted. Now its like I've been released from jail. (Sorry, you just have to know what I have been going through lately).
Oops sorry. My dad wasn't famous, but he was famous to me.
My dad, who was a huge Buckeye fan, but never attended a game. I miss him everyday.
^What he said
He is gone like a cool breeze in August, but I wouldn't be surprised if some team signs him next year. Seriously, I wouldn't be.
I don't know if you can point a finger at just one thing, but here is my two cents. Look around the conference and look at the head coaches. Do any of these guys really impress you? Kirk Ferentz at Iowa. What has he done that warrants him still having a job? Pelini at Nebraska. This guy is one blowup away from a total meltdown. Hoke at Michigan. Believe me, I love that he is still the head coach there because that gives the Buckeyes a better than average chance of laying a big beat down on the Wolverines as long as he is there. The list goes on and on. And I know its a bit simplistic to lay this all on the coaches, as there are other factors involved in each situation. I just feel the coaching throughout the conference is very sub par.
Stop it. Now. In the words of Jim Mora: "Playoffs? Are you kidding me? Playoffs?"
My Vikings are looking good in St. Louis. In fact, better than good. Weekend not a total loss.
The defense let way too many 3rd down and long conversions happen. For whatever reason there always seemed to be a wide open Tech receiver on crucial 3rd downs.
I know the Buckeyes were horrible last night, but I'm still curious how Meechigan fans are feeling. Call it my personal therapy.
No problems here, but I'm posting via my phone. Don't know if that makes any difference or not.
A lot of people I talk to, big Buckeye fans, are starting to question Urban and his staff. And this was before the Tech game. I think he will get it all sorted out eventually, but probably not soon enoughto save this season.
Silver Bullet: this post reminded me of walking out with the players once after a loss at Purdue(the Drew Brees game) I remember being stunned about how big Jonathan Wells was. Simply huge.
If they don't study that tape and learn from it, then we are screwed. You know the old saying, those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. If these coaches don't learn anything from that game tape, they are doomed to repeat it.
Look, I like URB, but it seems to me he is worried about everything except coaching this team. Maybe worried is the wrong word. Maybe "caught up" in all the hype. Bring in LeBron? Great, but isn't that a distraction? Just asking.
First off, I don't think the coaching staff knows who"that guy" is. Second, it doesn't matter if they don't find some guys that can block.
I'm from Allen county, but I know and work with a lot of Putnam county people. I kid the Kalida guys about "Honky Christmas" but they're good sports about it. I coached Jr. High basketball for two years at P-G. Long time ago, but good memories. When we got out of high school, we always headed to Ottawa on the weekends. Seems like there was always something fun happening.
You can't use that excuse that maybe such and such qb was better than we thought. EVERY qb has career days against OSU and we say he is better than we thought?(exception:Navy, and he doesn't count because they don't pass). Something is very wrong with this defense and its schemes. And every opposing coach has it figured out.
Its not so much that. Mark May hates OSU and always has, that is obvious. And what else is obvious is that ESPN has an agenda, and they push certain teams, and conferences. That is not being objective and therefore you cannot take ESPN serious.
Like I said in another post: when Corey Smith dropped that TD pass, Urban should have sat him for the rest of the game. You don't reward bad play with
More playing time. That just doesn't make sense.
