I'm SO ready to see Slam and Scott reach their potential next year! They've both showed glimpses of what they could be if they put it all together and played at a consistent level. It's senior year, fellas, let's DO THIS!!!!
I don't think anyone was talking about rooting for other B1G teams to win a title. I believe the subject was whether you wanted other B1G teams to recruit well and be competitive. I want OSU to beat every other team in the country, both in recruiting and on the field. I also want the other B1G teams to strive to be the best they can be, so that when we beat them, we feel like we accomplished something significant.
But if you haven't been challenged by playing tough opponents during the season, you're less likely to win the playoff games.
What a complete SHAM of an investigation! I sincerely hope the accuser and her attorney continue to make noise about this and pursue civil action. There are a lot of people down there in Tallahassee that should be ashamed of their actions in this case.
One more reason to love you, Rosycheeks! My man crush just went up a notch!
2016, we're @Wisconsin, @Penn State (back to back) and then @MSU. Combined with @OK in the non conf, that's going to be quite a gauntlet to run.
He's been mentioned in a few articles here and on other sites, he's still rehabbing and looking to be back to full participation in the Fall.
Snotkiss looks to me like a guy who's reached his ceiling. I just don't see him with any potential to be better than he already is. I really see him being a guy that will easily get pushed around in the NBA. Maybe he'll surprise me and get a lot stronger. I think that's going to be necessary for him to have any kind of success at the next level.
McGary might head to the NBA, too. He's gotta be kickin' himself that he didn't declare last year.
I like that Ash has his guys watching video of the Seahawks from last year. What they do is almost identical to what Narduzzi and Dantonio do, but they do it on it's most elite level. Emulate the best, then BECOME the best!
Because you don't grade it the way you grade a game in the fall, you grade it as a spring game, knowing that neither QB had a cohesive line to play behind, or a full compliment of offensive weapons around them.
And both of our byes happen in the first month and a half of the season, one before Cinci and the other before the Rutgers game. Neither bye proceeds a big game, and from mid season on we play 7 consecutive games prior to the B1G Championship game.
And you would quite likely lose that bet. Many OSU fans use the spring game as an affordable chance to travel to Columbus and bring their families to the SHOE, the single best stadium in college football. We don't know what the % is, so guessing it's 80% would be no more confirmable than me saying "50% of the fans today were from out of town!" And what would be the difference anyway? 60k for the spring game is under our average, but still puts us in the top 10 for spring game attendance. Meatchicken, is not in the top 25.
You've heard the Buckeyes abused in sport bars and sports radio NOT because "so often (they) perform like deer in the headlights", it's because OSU is consistently good and playing for championships. Seriously, dude, nobody hates on teams/schools that aren't playing for championships, because nobody cares about those teams. If they're talking shit about you, it's because you matter to them.
^^^This made scrolling all the way to the bottom of the comments worth it. Even the baseball comments.
I haven't been rick rolled in years, thought that shit was finally in my rear view mirror. Thanks.
Yeah, I let out a pathetic sigh when I saw the headline that Embiid was going to declare for the draft. But hopefully, that doesn't guarantee that Turner will head to Kansas. I still think the situation at OSU is a better one (I'm a Buckeye fan, OF COURSE I DO!), simply because OSU has a greater need and less competition at the center position.
Significantly more difficult schedule? Really? I don't think so, brother.
They lost to Stanford, the best team they played (and were manhandled, I watched that game. It was not as close as the score indicated - they got pounded, as they usually do when they play a power team). Their other loss was an ass whoopin' from AZ, 42-16. The only win you can call a quality win was over UCLA.
Did you know that MSU actually plays Oregon in the non-conference this year?!! Even better would be for MSU to whip up on Oregon early in the season, and since they already put the hammer down on Stanford last year, beats one of those teams AGAIN in the Rose, while OSU goes on to the playoff.
Dude, this post goes on and on, and doesn't seem to have a shred of good, factual info to relate. I'm sorry, but I'm guessing that no one is reading your dissertation. I'll sum it up for the others: According to Catch 5, everyone in the SEC will be a little better than they were last year, everyone in the B1G will be a little worse. Biased analysis? Just a tad.
It might've been a good idea for you to respond to the fact that your SEC homer website is where Bama's schedule ranking was posted. In fact, it would make a whole of a lot more sense for you to go on THAT site and make your Bama homer argument, rather than HERE, on an OSU site, where very few people are likely to agree with you.
I was thinkin' the same thing, Beam! Can we let Thad talk to this kid?!
I'm pretty fast, my wife tells me so almost every night!
I'll be here all week. Tip yer waitresses.
Yeah, an actual conference team. As opposed to playing Western Carolina. Dude, you're not very good at this.
