No, I agree they won't roll over and die, but they should not be that hard to kill... If you think OSU cannot crush them then you probably do not feel they have much of a chance to win it all again. Being confident is different than being complacent.
Might be true - but most are not one of the leaders of the best football team in the land and a potential number one overall pick in the country either. Age can only provide some excuse -
Also - listening to electronic dance music should have been a clue.....
Cheese and rice. I always am afraid to open a website and see that some OSU players did something dumb. Oh well - could be worse. Also - if OSU could not beat VT with a dozen of starters not playing they should not hope to win the NC again.
Wonder why saban did not complain in 2011 and 2012 when the draft advisory board announced in December? What a TOOL.
I hope the players are not thinking like this - Baby steps - win game one first and so on - Do i think they could win by 10 or more each game - of course.
Last year all the big games were lost early by the Big 10 including OSU - just win a couple and not as much crap will be tossed on the Big 10. Correction - TTUN - did get revenge on APP. State.
Chocolate lab named URBAN
and made that change
I would agree -
who are the guys with the black jerseys on?
Until he gets little LeBron to come to OSU. HEY not recruiting - just sayin
Not sure if anyone mentioned this - but the team as whole played a lot better in the last three games of the season. They came together knowing they needed to. Honestly, the defense played lights out. There were 4 turnovers against Oregon and then some bad turnovers against alabama - not to mention shutting down Wisconsin.
In addition - cannot compare the first three games of Cardale vs. JT's - in two words - offensive line.
They are all studs and i will trust Urban to make the correct choice.
Good article - but change the T to a F .
Assuming and hoping health is good with everyone - Putting the experienced OL with Zeke with the first 4 games of the season he may have 1,000 yards alone. I do not think it matters what QB is in there.
Trying to mimic Lebron - brief stop in Miami then off to Ohio - However, there are no championships waiting in Miami.
Images like this came to mind when saw the title of this.
I like how he said to further both his academic and athletic careers.
The one the left was just looking a photo her friend sent of her boyfriend out with another girl.
The two on the right were texting each other - "do see Melissa over there - I can't believe she is on her phone texting her jealous boyfriend."
Maybe they were just watching the game.
On a serious note - I saw the same thing.
Competing at the same level if not better in the SEC as Big 12 - you are making my argument for me.
The point that is being made that nearly everyone said Missouri and Tamu would take years to be able to play at the "SEC" level of football. From 1996 to 2010 MZ only played in two Big 12 championship games and got crushed both times. Tamu only played in one and got crushed too. Both teams averaged 3rd in the respective division and worse, obviously, overall. In three years MZ has won the SEC East twice, and Tamu has competed. So if you believe everything, a "yearly competitor" in the Big 12 would still stand no chance in the almighty SEC.
Forde on Tamu, "His team isn't ready to compete in the SEC, and his saintly fan base isn't ready either." - ESPN Sept 2011

I get the SEC has been a great conference over the past few years. What I do not understand is how do two average Big 12 schools come into the toughest conference and compete on a higher level than they did in the Big 12. Then you have one of the highest competing Big 12 schools come to the horrible Big 10 and are a middle of the pack team. Thoughts?
I never get this - Why would you say something that makes your team look even weaker. "That team we got crushed by is not that good and is going to lose."
Forgot about the science aspect.
That was a nice speech - thought he might thank the Silver Bullets for spreading the vote a little more.
