Va. Tech is not that good. Watching the game last week, other then their TE's and that one fuller kid, they were not more talented then us at any position. We got outcoached, outplayed, and we made more mistakes. When you're an average football team, you can't lay an egg against another average team like we did. Today, VT laid the egg.
While a lot of this true, I don't think that this means that the BIG will never be down forever. We don't need to win to win 6 straight NC's (although that would be nice) but we there is no excuse for losing to MAC schools regularly. Biggest problem in my opinion is coaching. Although we pay our head coaches competitively for the most part, most BIG schools pay their assistants crap compared to the SEC and other power schools (FSU, Clemson, USC, off the top of my head). Say what you want about bielema, but on paper he was one of the top BIG coaches, and he left a job for life for a 600K pay raise b/c he lost at least one or both coordinators for 3 straight years. Recruiting is tougher, but when you look at the NFL talent conferences produce, its about even. The recruiting game is made for the SEC to take advantage of, and is overrated imo.
Why does he need to transfer? He's eligible this draft. No point in sitting out a year or playing juco, someone will still take him in the 1st round.
Did he sign an extension?
Whoops. Poor information from a friend of mine. Thanks for the correction.
It hasn't sold out the big house, they didn't open the whole stadium, just the lower bowl. so like 40,000, not 110,000/ ITs still pretty cool though.
Oh man, gimme some of them HOE fries!
i was quite disappointed when the dollar breakfasts went away however.
Birm (or anyone)- how tall is too tall for an offensive lineman? At some point you lose leverage; I feel you rarely see above 6-7 olineman, and he's 6-9 and still growing? He seems like a great athlete though.
Schembechler was the guy who started that quote I think. Since then everyone other then RichRod has had Michigan ties for some reason.
It sucks that he got sick, b/c that was his shot. I'll always love Troy Smith, but I'm glad the Browns have Manziel (although I think I would have picked Bridgewater)
Wiggins, or trade down for embiid ( I've heard w/ philly for 3,10 and young)
I realize this is an opinion piece, and the purpose of it is to drive conversation, but its never going to happen, for reasons you mentioned in the article. Money. Ohio state football makes millions. Ohio state research makes billions. If we leave the big ten, we leave the CIC. And that is where the real money is.
Miles is too old. LSU will be his last job. They'll throw everything at Harbaugh, but probably fail again, before turning to someone else. Maybe Narduzzi? Not sure if they'll be over their michigan man thing yet.
This England-Italy game has been pretty good so far
Krenzel was the perfect tresselball QB. Smart, Limited mistakes, made plays when he needed too, was just athletic enough to get the job done. That gameplan against Miami was fantastic; and it was possible b/c he could run well enough to catch their defense off guard. I'd take Troy Smith over him, but not TP, and I won't compare Braxton to him b/c the offenses are so different.
We're gonna get hammered lol. But I love the world cup, so much fun
I like where your head is at, but let the kid be a highschooler. You should get to enjoy your senior season IMO.
What happened between Notre Dame and Cornell? I know his high school is a pipeline, and I thought he had them top on his list at one point. Now they're not even under consideration? I'm not complaining, just curious lol.
I cant see him having a better record then 9-3. They had one of the worst o-line's in football last year, w/ 2 drafted tackles. Nuss will be an improvement, but at best they're hoping for mediocre, and I don't think that will get it done on the road at OSU, MSU, and ND. If they drop another one somewhere/look terrible in most of their games, and Hoke loses to all three rivals, there's no way he can stay.
Ones named Hakeem do. And That's who Embiid is compared to.
Embiid if his back checks out. Otherwise Wiggins. Trade everything except kyrie and the number 1 pick for Love if he signs an extension.
In all honesty though, Donovan has been terrible for the past year or so. His real world class skill was his speed/fitness, and he's getting older. I still thought he'd make it, just not start.
As a browns fan, I would love to go 8-8. That is all.
Anyone have the link for the dirty Lewan plays video that made the rounds around here last season? A buddy of mine is titans fan, and was interested in it.
I'm glad LeBron spent seven seasons in Cleveland. With that being said, I'm not playing his games again this offseason. If he comes back to Cleveland, great, if he doesn't, also great. We don't care nearly as much as ESPN thinks we do.
