Brando is more complicated than he's being portrayed. I really think he states his opinion without prejudice. For example, he did say OSU deserved in more thanTCU/Baylor. Preseason he predicted the SEC would be left out. It is clear he doesn't like Urban Meyer because he won't come on his show. He talked about him coming on when he was an up and comer, but now he doesn't have the time of day for the show. He has a sound clip of Urban saying, "You're a good man, Tim" that he plays 20 times a show. I like the show because he does get the movers and shakers of college football like Bill Hancock frequently. He also plays good 70's music. As far as his "Blow their doors off" comment, he was playing to an SEC crowd. I doubt if he will say it on his national show.
Like I've said before, if they look like the stained glass in the Ohio Stadium rotunda, they are OK with me.
They are counting additional money for the SEC Network starting this year. Even then, I think the B1G & BTN will bring in more. When the B1G new TV contract goes into effect in 2017, the published estimate is $45M per school.
I use TWC wireless off my cable with no problems.
RichRod results at twice the price would be great.
Note the red shoulder numbers (which I prefer) instead of black in the mock up. As i previously posted, the whole idea of the black numbers back in the late 60's was contrast for black and white film, not aesthetics.
I'll bet Meyer is keeping a McCullough gray shirt in his hip pocket if a five star wants to come at the last moment.
Houston native Guiton as QB coach at Houston makes sense.
Part of the problem in 1978 was Woody treated it like a Rose Bowl and went before Christmas. Players were bored to death by the time the game was played. The famous Pat O' Brien Hurricane incident was symptomatic.
Yes. It was a field goal attempt. College rules require a player to be inside the numbers. Problem was the field had both college and pro numbers. The receiver was inside the college numbers & refs blew it. Called back TD & penalty for illegal participation. Missed field goal.
I've got a t-shirt that says Sugar Bowl Champion. Does that count?
Your comment about working hours hearkens back to the Atlanta ice storm escapade.
Ask Vrabel about Houston's crime rate.
It's the knuckleball of football offenses.
It wasn't just the stinger. Missed Cincinnati game after arthroscopic knee surgery to repair meniscus.
Blackledge won't have a problem finding a restaurant to spotlight.
OSU 2014 is not Notre Dame 2012 or Citrus Bowl Michigan State. And the last time OSU played an SEC team in the Sugar Bowl, they won. I don't care what the record book says, I have a T-shirt to prove it.
Chryst is leaving a pretty good team in place. Luke has done well recruiting western PA. Narduzzi may be a sexier pick, however. He has ties to youngstown through his dad.
I think the NCAA sets the official lists.
Pretty sure they wait till his career is done so they can denote multiple years on the plaque.
Houston with Kenny G. as his QB coach is the main threat now. Keep hoping for Leach to come back to Texas.
Great story about his "Cal Lu" days as a player last week. 13 knee operations including one where they had to grow a ligament in a lab. Danced on the scorer's table while announcing basketball games. Please stay one more year to reap your labors.
UC's biggest draw would be as a travel partner for WVU. Look at the way the P12 schedule for basketball. I could see the B12 do something similar.
Urban Meyer was at the Orange Bowl in 2012 and saw Alabama up close. He came back and knew what he had to do, both in terms of players to recruit and player development to beat them.
One thing that I think will be important is the ability to go fast on offense. Don't give Saban the chance to get his packages in. Give Saban something to bitch about again at the AFCA convention.
Huzzah! Uniforms that look like the stained glass in the Ohio Stadium rotunda should be the standard.
