To be fair, he may have been referring to the dumpster fire that was the UF Offense Saturday when he said it was "lit."

Maryland ought to get UA to write a big ass check and get him.  If Rutgers could find a big donor they could try to sell the "we need you to clean up our culture and give the boys a good role model" argument.  If he won 9 games either place they ought to name the annual COY aware after him.

We need both Bama and Stanford to lose.  Very, very unlikely give the UF lack of an offense.

I'm hoping we get a Bowl that helps with recruiting...the Rose Bowl ain't it since we are not heavy West Coast recruiters.

All I know is that every researcher at Illinois (and Maryland) better drop all their other silly academic crap and go 24/7 to develop a better tasting grass in hope of luring the Hatter to town.

Comment 26 Nov 2015

I only see 3 situations that would get Miles to come to the B1G.

1) PSU fires Franklin and hires Miles...not likely.

2) Dino leaves Sparty to take the USCe job and Sparty hires Miles...again, not likely.

3) Huskers fire Riley (after 1yr) and hire Miles...very unlikely.

Comment 25 Nov 2015

I'm with you...stuff happens.  It's just part of life.  

No need to try to remove all possible risk in the world.  However, it's very likely inevitable given the PC and risk-adverse culture.  We'll have to invent some other dangerous and clearly stupid tradition to show how bad students want a win over scUM.

We beat TTUn by 60 (don't even take a kicker or punter, going for 2 on every conversion).

South Carolina (and then NC) thumps Clemson.

NC loses by 4 TD to NC St this week then thumps Clemson in the ACC title game.

MSU bears Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl

Auburn thumps Bama by 30.

FSU beats UF this week and then UF beats Bama in the SEC title game.

Sparty beats PSU and them plays to a tie with Iowa after the refs call the game following 17 OT periods.

TCU beats Baylor senseless.

Okie St. beats OKiie

Playoff Committee chooses OSU, Sparty, Iowa and ND while every Southern and Big12 fanbase goes insane.

LOL...mark it down, bet the farm, it's a lock.

Comment 23 Nov 2015

Well said by Zeke.  Outstanding young man who obviously got some great advice sometime after his interviews.  Stacy (or is it Stacey) should be both proud and commended for the job he and his wife have done.

Here's lifting a glass to Zeke showing TTUN what real pain feels like!  If you see this Zeke...remember Kosta hasn't seen you play THE game since that fateful day and he's still watching.  Go off on those sons of bitches up North!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment 22 Nov 2015

I said no such thing.

Being demoted during the season, hearing what he's hearing from team/fans and hopefully getting some "opportunities to start fresh" in someplace with lower expectations (and a bigger job title) are likely to help him get himself gone.  If not...if he's willing to take the demotion and stick around next year (understanding he's gone after 2016 regardless)...then we'll have to suck it up and work around the albatross for next year.  However, I don't think he'd accept that hit to his resume.  So the work-around is not high probability.

Comment 22 Nov 2015

Yep...monsoon in Clemson earlier this year.  LSU also had a game cancelled altogether due to weather.  So you can try to sell the "get used to it" and "weather sucks everywhere sometimes" arguments.

Not sure either will resonate if the kid froze his ass off watching a poor performance...but still it's a lot better argument that "Yep, you're right kid.  Weather sucks here...I'd go to Bama if I were you."

Comment 22 Nov 2015

Firing him, while feeling great to fans, is a bad thing to do from a HC standpoint.  You wanted at least 2yr commitment from Beck before you hired him, plus any top-notch replacement is not going to like the idea of fans calling for your head (and HC following through) after 1 loss.  At the very least it would give a top candidate a moment's pause before taking the job as replacement.

Much better to demote and reach out quietly to programs that might offer Beck a "new opportunity and challenge"...James Madison from a couple years back comes to mind.  With the fan uproar, team discontent and demotion...Beck might well be find himself willing/ready to break his 2yr commitment to Meyer of his own accord if other programs came calling.

Just a thought.

Comment 22 Nov 2015

You'll never be happy if you're going to let "them" (media and haters) dictate your inner monologue.  

It's the media's job to draw attention by sensationalizing, hyping and emphasizing what is wrong (if it bleeds it leads).  It's a hater's job to hate.

For a happier life, form your own opinions and give less of a shit what others say (or think).

My 2 cents.

Comment 21 Nov 2015

Just heard another piece of footage and better understand your position USMC...still disagree.  There was no name calling or disrespect.  He stated his opinion.

Comment 21 Nov 2015

I understand what you're saying Marine, but you're wrong.  From what I've heard (obviously I'm not following Zeke around listening to everything he says...just the major stuff reported) he did nothing but express a critical question.  I explicitly heard him say "I can't speak for the play calling, I don't know what they are seeing up there" and then expressed his opinion that he deserves more opportunities to help the team.  There is no lack of leadership there.

If the entire team (players and staff) are not being self-critical, they are not chasing excellence...which has always been Urban's motto.  So there needs to be a lot of self-evaluation.  And obviously, based on Urban's presser comments the staff know the game plan and/or in-game play-calling sucked today.

Imho, it would show less leadership to bury his head in the sand and say something like "we'll be okay, it was just an off day" (ignoring the obvious).

BTW, I don't know that I agree with Zeke.  The OL play has been mediocre most of the year.  Not sure Zeke running (9 blocker plays) would work any better than JT running (10-blocker plays).  However, that's sure a discussion/debate that should be had in the Off. meetings Sunday.

Comment 21 Nov 2015

Catastrophe day for the recruiting.

Weather sucked.  Playcalling sucked.  OL got man-handled, D-line couldn't dominate.  Fans booed.  Dino and Sparty showed out with a 2nd and 3rd string QB tandem.  And with all the media puffery about how many absolute studs we have on the roster, the staff will be hard pressed to spin the "we need more horses like you" story.

That one's gonna leave a big mark long beyond this weekend imho.

Comment 19 Nov 2015

Marine...I sent you a message.  Let's meet up.

Marines don't leave anyone behind and we aren't going to start now.

Comment 19 Nov 2015

Ummm...those don't look like what I expect a Master Sergeant (or Clear Fork country boy) to be wearing.  LOL

Urb would make you cover that blue with a black sharpie.  ;-)  (What kind of a design genius didn't know blue was not cool on Buckeye shoes?)

I'm between Lex and Bellville...we'll have to meet for a beer some time.

Semper Fi.

Comment 18 Nov 2015

45 degrees, 25mph wind and rain forecast.  Regardless of what you (or anyone) wants, it won't be as crazy of a crowd as an earlier-in-the-season night game.  That's just the way it is during the back half of November (unless we're playing TTUN and both are ranked in the top 5).

Comment 16 Nov 2015

1) Supposed Texas recruiting contacts / ability

2) Had worked with Warinner

3) Assumption a strong returning OL and embarrassment of existing QB talent (Brax, JT and CJ at that point in time) would more than offset any issues he has as a QB coach...while UFM coached up the coach

4) Wanted to hear the real behind-the-scenes stories about Pelini

Comment 14 Nov 2015

Joey was a tad low (at 15), but Golic nailed it.

Given no knowledge of last year and the NFL potential of the current roster, based on track record this year alone...OSU is top 10...but not top 5.  That's perfectly fair at this point.  We've still got 3-4 games to pass the eye test and pad our strength of schedule (given knowledge of last year or not).  Either way, our destiny is in our own hands.
