It's ironic that football's "measurables" (i.e. game stats, QBR, W-L record, etc.) are often outweighed by the eye test. Coaches and fans alike, conduct this test.
So, there's a seeming endless debate over the numbers and the intangibles.
But, Meyer prescribes what will end the debate: Championships.
"time, which, as we know, heals all wounds": +1
Remember: UF (SEC). FSU (ACC).
About Florida State, I agree with you, generally. The 2015 Buckeyes enjoy one advantage over that team: No one stands out with the polarizing effect, like Jameis Winston. This makes it easier for the Buckeyes to be a team. Every win is their win. It's their opportunity to improve.
You entered an announcement thread about racists in the chat and needlessly dropped ageism into it.
Needlessly? Do you truly mean it when you write this word?
As to your announcement thread, you provided no forward, limiting the discourse, in any way.
Don't pollute this thread with that pathetic false equivalence again.
Again, “marginaliz(ing) or worse, (e)ither because of ethnicity (o)r age” is simply, wrong.
I express no false equivalence. Your use of false equivalence is false.
You seem to have misplaced your anger.
You’re describing yourself, Ramzy. Your entrenchment is bizarre.
All I keep hearing is "we're undefeated but not as undefeated as we'd like to be."
Great observation. This exemplifies the poll-era mentality, which will be hard to shake. The "style points" refrain loomed like a dark cloud over teams and their fans. No more. No more.
When you earn a championship, you should also be accorded the respect that comes with it. With so many national champions on the field and the sidelines, I feel much better about the team's prospects, than I did at this time, last season. I mean, what must the 2015 Buckeyes do, but win? Winning's the thing.
That you are mischaracterizing me and offending me in a public forum requires my response.
It seems you did not read – but rather – chose to read into a statement that simply identified behavior on this site as too prevalent and worthy of its publisher’s attention and action.
On behalf of this website and in this instance, it would have been better for you to simply read and acknowledge the comment. No one should be marginalized or worse, neither because of ethnicity nor age.
I did nothing wrong here. Your ignorant and insensitive dismissal of ageism as “victimless” and your reactionary, snide and wildly judgmental response to my post is outrageous and absolutely surprising: Let alone wrong, it is contrary to the great care and wisdom you normally display in your writing.
It was not me.
Thanks for trying to clarify. After posting my previous reply to yours, I sent an e-mail to Jason et al, regarding same.
Hopefully, no one has to deal with this again, on this site.
I've followed Meyer's career fairly closely. Dating to his Florida tenure, it seems to me Meyer's teams are penalty/turnover-prone. Maybe these are by-products of his "play with your hair on fire" approach to coaching?
Consider the following, which will allow a complete overview of Meyer's coaching career, in this regard (just use the back and forward buttons):
It looks like it. However, I don't think too many of us expected Northwestern to shithouse the Gophers, much less shut 'em out.
That should be the first B1G game of the year, next Saturday in A2.
Somebody scheduled Ohio State to play MSU and scUM in consecutive weekends, over consecutive years. I would love 11W to feature an interview with that somebody.
As I posted, I did not participate in the live chat.
It seems 11W needs to do a better job at protecting the identities of its users.
I did not participate in the live game chat, yesterday. My comments regard the site, in general.
Actually, it seems to me expressions of ageism are more rampant. I think 11W staff needs to mitigate expressions of ageism on this site, as well.
Indiana is a good football team.
Indiana = Hoosier Daddies
The Buckeyes deserve our confidence. Many of them are national champions.
Ohio State won today.
