Maybe JT will score 16 TDs against Indiana tomorrow.  That's the only thing I'm concerned with.

I wish we would schedule Pitt in the OOC more often.  Another 72-0 victory would be good for the soul.

There were a few times last season where the football team outscored the basketball team in the same week.  With the potential that the basketbucks have this year, though, I wouldn't expect it to happen.  I say that OSU defeats SMU 63 to 57.

Next Saturday has all the classic makings for an upset.  We have a dominating offense and a rapidly improving defense.  Their offense is a dumpster fire, and their defense, which hasn't been awful, just lost their best player.  Which means they have a great chance to surprise a lot of people!

On a serious note -- and this was definitely true last year -- Michigan has recruited well enough to have athletes that are just as good as ours.  Yes, Hoke is terrible at developing talent and even worse at scheme.  However, in rivalry games, when you have athletes that are equal to each other, expect Michigan to win a lot of one on one matchups that we've typically taken for granted this year.  Combine that with heart in a rivalry, and the fact that they have the opportunity to play spoiler to our national championship aspirations, and you have a solid recipe for a trap game.  And Brady Hoke would absolutely love to give a giant middle finger to everyone on his way out the door, so definitely expect some surprises.

I'm not shaking in my boots or anything, and by all measures we should dominate on 11/29.  However, we can and should take our dear friends from TTUN seriously this year.  But don't expect us to cover the spread.

Would be great, but I don't think we keep Tevin Coleman out of the endzone tomorrow.  At the very least, he breaks one late in the second half during garbage time.  But I think they score at least a TD before halftime, it's the second half when they are forced to throw when our defense will eat them alive.

I'm disappointed that it doesn't mention the fact that he uses your running back as a projectile to destroy you with.

Eleven Warriors never seems to be able to get media nicknames to stick.  Just ask Carlos Hyde.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

The only thing I am going to say in this thread is that it deeply saddened me to hear these allegations earlier in the week.

I grew up watching the Cosby Show.  It was one of the cleanest and most real to life sitcoms you could ask for, and it is exceedingly rare to find one like it today (there may be one or two, but not at the same level of quality).  In addition, Bill Cosby had a way about his humor that was clean and hilarious.  You might even say he was a stand up guy (pun intended).

If he drugged and raped numerous women during the '70's and '80's and lied to the world about the sort of man he was this whole time...  that hurts deep.  Was the clean public appearance just a mask to make the thought of rape unthinkable?  It certainly worked well, if true.  Makes me want to vomit.

They should make this in hoodie blanket with sleeves form.  The shruggie snuggie?

Comment 20 Nov 2014

I didn't want to be the first one to ask if he had 3.  I wonder if he ever surprised a girlfriend with that?

Droid 4 with the default browser.  I manually typed in the <em> and </em> tags around the text.

If you want to make Jason mad, you can try adding a bunch of </div> tags at the end of your post, it will royally screw up the formatting of the thread.  I haven't tried to use </body> or </html> yet, don't want to get banned, ha.

Edit:  Also, put a <p> at the beginning and </p> at the end of your entire post and before and after new paragraphs -- this will prevent it from looking weird in the post history on your user page.  Use <br/> for line breaks (equivalent to hitting SHIFT-Enter from the full site editor).  

Also:  If you are using the full site comment editor, at the bottom it will tell you what HTML elements are being applied to the cursor location, just FYI.

The new eleven warriors is html5 compliant, so it is better to use em rather than i. I am typing this from my phone

In order to do italics on mobile, you can manually type <em>text to italicize</em>.

The editor on mobile doesn't translate any of the html tags and only displays the raw text, so you can type in html tags and it will work correctly.

A coach's salary is an investment.  If the coach is successful because you could offer more and get a better quality coach, then althletic revenue will improve.  You wouldn't have to cut a non-revenue sport, and it may even have positive benefits.

But, like any investments, what/whom you invest in matters.  Example: Charlie Weis, equivalent of investing in Enron in 2001.  Urban Meyer: equivalent of investing in Google in 2004.  There's a big difference.

Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes.  OMG Yes.

Anyone who doesn't know about Nancy's Home Cooking and lives in Columbus needs to acquaint themselves posthaste.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

So you are saying that the Big Ten should travel down the "yellow brick road" to increase coaching salaries?

Unfortunately, promotion/relegation won't happen because Indiana and Purdue are not going to vote away their BTN revenue share despite the fact that they are grossly mismanaging it as it is.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

That's actually not a current depiction of the horseshoe.  It doesn't yet have the upgrades to the south stands overtop of the tunnel entrances, nor are the new permanent lights in place.  Would work for last season, though.

Hahaha, I thought I was the only person on the planet that knew about Beatallica.  Hilarious, even if painful to listen to, but still hilarious.
