When you need to start off a sentence by typing "no offense" it is probably a good idea to reconsider the sentence.
With the Browns looking at about a two win season next year the likelihood that Cardale lands up in a Cleveland uniform in 2016 is good.
This is Luke Fickell's second National Championship. He was a Special Teams coach in 2002.
No thank you. Ohio State lost 5 of those games and I hope bama never wins another game and wanders in the wilderness for 40 years bewailing their Sugar Bowl loss.
Mariota has that certain something. I think the NFL experts downgrading him are making a mistake. Heck yes I would take him on the Browns.
What a beautiful sight. Congratulations Buckeyes on a tremendous achievement. Congratulations Buckeye fans at home and around the world!
Sad but true.
If any of Ohio State's qbs transfer I hope they go to a real university to further their education and craft.
Ryan Mallet comes to mind.
Angels of Avalon. According to numerous legends and retold in Le Morte d' Arthur I recall they took King Arthur from the field of battle to the isle of Avalon to cure from his wounds.
We shouldn't delude ourselves. Michigan hired one of the very best coaches in all of football. Winning the B1G just got considerably more difficult for the foreseeable future but the plus side is that The Game will now return to its proper place as the focal point on the last Saturday in November. Meyer v Harbaugh is going to be magnificent.
If that is the case I hope they learn better clock management before next Monday.
It's all a matter of priorities. I thought the old system of bowls with an occasional split national champion was fine. I still prefer a traditional Rose Bowl with a playoff game afterwards to determine the mnc.
This...is...brilliant. Enough sec obsession. They are not worth it.
This exactly. USC is the white whale and the Pac is the B1G's rival conference. Let the dirty sec stew in misery for a generation at least, we're better off without them.
sec started all this nonsense along with espn.
That looks great but not for the title game.
Not that different from last year as the sec beat stalwarts Houston, Rice, Duke and Georgia Tech among other powerhouses but lost the two games that mattered. Put a fork in them the sec is back with everyone else in CFB and the B1G now has three of the best coaches in college football.
Ohio State claims seven but could just as easily claim 12 I believe. ESPN trimming it to five is just trolling.
This system is ok but I always thought the best solution was to just pick the top two teams after the traditional bowl games were played and have them play a few weeks after New Year's Day. This year a committee, poll or whatever would be looking at the results of OSU v UO, Alabama v Baylor, FSU v Miss St. and MSU v TCU to find the top 2. That would have been pretty fun and returned the idea of the importance of place to where these games take place.
Before us fans start adding games to the playoff let's have a look at the toll these extra games and practices are taking on the student athletes playing the games. An 8 team playoff could be ok if the CCGs are eliminated. As it stands now this Buckeye team has played 14 games already.
I hope Ohio State doesn't have to play them again for 20 years. Let them stew in that loss a good long time with no hope for redemption in sight.
Always an upvote for The Band. First 8-track tape I bought. ;)
So in other words they might be putting football in its proper perspective.
Good luck to him.
This throws a new wrinkle in the college playoff scenario. Now that the games are playoffs instead of glorified exhibitions will schools be more reluctant to allow their coaches to pursue other jobs while they are supposed to be preparing for a big game?
