Luck was a great get by Harbaugh, and he definitely deserves credit for getting him on Stanford's campus. Luck was the Rivals 4-star / Scouts 5-star recruit, and was in the same recruiting class as Terrelle Pryor. I found it interesting that the list of schools Luck chose from were Northwestern, Oklahoma State, Purdue, Rice and Virginia. Obviously schools more noted for academics than football, and a few of these schools offer highly-ranked architecture programs, which was Luck's major.
It will always be hard for me to choose between the great N'Sync's 'Bye, Bye, Bye'
I wish I could UV the OP for the Danny O'Shea reference in 'Little Giants'.
For such a terrible, God-awful movie, this speech still is on the short-list of ones that gives me chills.
Harbaugh's success at Stanford happened to peak when Andrew Luck took over the reigns at QB. To Harbaugh's credit, Luck was a Harbaugh recruit. He was the #6 QB in the class (Terrelle Pryor was #1), and chose Stanford over Northwestern, Oklahoma State, Purdue, Rice and Virginia.
None of those programs scream football powerhouse. However, they all have great architectural programs, which is what Luck majored in at Stanford.
I'm not sold on Harbaugh being worthy of the highest-paid coach in college football. Is he an improvement over Hoke? Absolutely. So is a jugs machine, but I'm not making that the highest paid coach in college football. I would absolutely contend Harbaugh is a great hire. However, he is coaching a 7-7 team, and the QB he handpicked and was in charge of grooming has regressed. The one team who has control over his services can't seem to push him out the door fast enough.
Meanwhile, Michigan wants to make him the highest paid coach in college football? That should go a long way in regard to keeping his ego in check, which seems to be his biggest issue at this point.
Neither are eligible to be drafted in the upcoming draft class.
A 7-5 FCS school just hired a coach who led a Power 5 school to a 9-3 record and a Top 25 ranking in the AP Poll, and he will be the second-best coach on the campus. I think that has some potential.
It was hard to tell to start the game because everything was red, although Buckeye Nation was certainly louder. In our section, there were four Wisconsin fans in the entire section. They left halfway through the 2nd quarter when it was 24-0. I think they grew tired of my never-ending string of high fives and fist bumps to any Buckeye fan within arm's reach.
If you were going to assume the empty seats in the fourth quarter were representative of the Wisconsin fans who tapped out, then I agree it was 75% - 80% Buckeye Nation.
I think he deserves to do what makes him happy, and if coaching is where his heart is, then that is what he should be doing.
Good point. I have a goatee, receding hairline, a little overweight, and I'll be drinking beer.
Our crew will be rolling in around 3 or 4. We're game for whatever. And, just so everybody knows right now, when it comes to tailgating,...
I'll be there. Middle-age white guy in a red hoodie. Look for me. If you see me, yell "O-H..."
Bucks4Nuts, this is a safe place. A place where we can feel free sharing our feelings. Think of our forum as a nest in a tree of trust and understanding. We can say anything here.
Tuberville's wife is from Guilford, IN, which is about a half hour from Cincinnati. I think he came here to retire. A move from Texas Tech to UC isn't exactly a step up. At least that's the rumor down here.
I don't doubt that it would either. I do think it's a step in the process that would allow for more credible sources than this individual to leak this story.
Tressel's show-cause penalty is in effect until December of 2016.
I found this on Wikipedia, so you know it's legit:
If he gets another head coaching job before then, he will have to sit out the first five games of the first regular season of his return, as well as any postseason games (including conference championship games and bowl games).

The last offensive guru they got out of the Mountain West Conference turned out pretty well.
#1 TCU vs. #4 Missouri
#2 OSU vs. #3 Arizona
Not an invalid question. I've been trying to reserve judgment for the committee until the final rankings, but this week's rankings were a serious head-scratcher to me.
Personally, I don't think anyone should be ahead of FSU. I don't like the precedence that is being set in regard to an undefeated P5 conference school being jumped by 1-loss teams. I absolutely despise FSU, Winston, and Fischer, and will be rooting just as hard for Georgia Tech this weekend as I am the Buckeyes to keep them out of the playoffs. But, at the end of the day, they're in the mix.
I don't agree with Alabama and Oregon being ahead of an undefeated P5 program, but I can at least understand the argument. With TCU being ahead of FSU, I don't even understand the argument.
Let's hope the Committee was simply trying to manufacture some drama for this week, and will ultimately reward conference champions...more specifically, conference champions who play a 13th game.
UVs for everyone who correctly listed 'Die Hard' as a Christmas movie.
Cardale once had an awkward moment just to see what it felt like.

Don't ever let anyone tell you your observation skills aren't up to par.
We used this last year, and it worked well. We used it again this year.
