We need to quit comparing Urban to the Vest. They are both Great Coaches but completely different styles. I would not trade the Vest for the world, although I love Urban.
I would tend to think that too. But that poses the big question about a 2 loss UNC who has 2 FCS wins on their schedule v a 1 loss OSU.
At that point you could have a 1 loss Baylor who loses the Big 12 to a 2 loss OU. If UNC wins the Coastal and ACC championship I cant see how they could get in over a 1 loss non championship winner who loses to a top 3 team
So, do you take a 1 loss Louisville who lost to a 2 loss Clemson who did not win their conference in week 5 and did not get to play their conference championship team or a one loss OSU losing to undefeated scUM or one loss scUM losing to undefeated OSU who wins their conference? Or do you take a 2 loss ACC Coastal Champ because they won their conference?
In all seriousness I can only see this happening in the following scenario. SEC winner, Big winner (scUM), either Washington in PAC as unbeaten in playoff. THen you choose between a 2 loss ACC champ in UNC or Miami or someone like that who knocks off Clemson giving them 2 losses (or even 1 loss), a 2 loss OU who won the Big 12 and 1 loss OSU. You cant pick UNC and how do you pick Clemson over its own conference champ, you cant. So you go to OU who won the Big 12. While they won their conference, given the head to head was so lopsided, it is clear OSU was the much better team so you cant pick them either. THen you have to pick Ohio State.
Imagine the controversy though, especially if Clemson and Louisville both have one loss a piece.
Sounds like the University may need to issue a trigger warning for calling them "cow paths"
Well it looks like OU and Kansas will be playing in the Big West soon enough recreating the old Big 8 days.
The Bucks may be making pilgrimages to Allen Fieldhouse too, which would be pretty cool
I think Texas stays in the Big 12 without OU. They will still play the Red River Shootout, so TX really would not have a diminished football schedule because they would play the Big 12 plus non-con OU game and then lose Kansas too.
Finally, Texas achieves its goal of having a proxy conference that revolves solely around its wishes.
I have a feeling that we will be seeing Kyle Carbone memes and his video posted in comments sections on this site for years to come.
Cant wait for a championship game with a round robin schedule. O and a conference that recruits only out of the state of Texas. Talk about the ability to sustain success long term. This is why the top recruits are leaving the state of Texas to play in the SEC and BIG now.
Sounds like you need to find a new GF. If she truly loved you, she would have you back in Columbus by Saturday at noon.
I still think they are going to pull a Clemson sometime this year.
I saw a similar thread at MGoBlog, where they compared our game to theirs v Wisky. They were excited because their D did much better against Wisky than OSU.
Personally, I laughed because none of this matters and I was hoping we at eleven warriors would not start a similar thread because we are better than this. Who cares how they look. They are chasing us remember. Don't stoop to their level but doing meaningless comparisons
He is a lifer at MSU. I don't see him leaving. One down year does not erase his legacy. I don't see him at LSU (especially since he is in the mold of Miles) and I don't see Texas going after him either unless they whiff on their other candidates, even then I don't think Dino leaves. He is a BIG type of guy.
Bengals problems are because the offensive line and Center position has not developed and that is hurting the offense. Their D problems are because of the CB's are injured and young.
Never going to happen. Nebraska is pretty happy in the BIG, I think some of their fans long for old days though
Stay in Ohio, Go to Cincinnati, play in the BIg 12
LSU was irrelevant before Saban and Miles did a great job keeping them strong. Here's hoping that they go through another 30 years of futility for their hubris on this move.
ha ha ha ha ha.... LSU is clearly delusional
I just don't see why it is a good time to do this now. You will lose any semblance of a recruiting class because everything is in flux and you have an interim coach with no ability to recruit as long as he has the interim tag. Secondly, the season is shot anyway, take 8-4 and let him ride off on one last tour.
To me this strikes as desperation and hubris down in Baton Rouge. They seem to forget to remember that prior to Saban arriving there, they had a good 20-25 years of mediocrity. Saban turned them into a power and Miles was able to keep them up.
Houston is not really that good.
To be honest, no one outside Alabama is on Ohio State's level, there is a clear drop off from everyone else.
The biggest difference with OSU and Bama as compared to everyone else, is that there are no true superstars carrying them. They have a ton of very talented players and play team football. WHereas, all the other top teams (Clem, Lou, Hou, scum, etc.) have 2-3 difference makers on the team. If those people can be shut down, or even 1-2 of them, it changes the dynamic of their teams. If Louisville does not have their QB, they are pedestrian. If you take Barrett away from OSU, there is still enough talent around to be very good.
From what I say last weekend, didn't Les Miles kill Harambe?
Texas too high, Tennessee should fall about 5 spots, Oklahoma should be somewhere in top 13-17 range.
Correct me if I am wrong for my lack of soccer knowledge but given 1) the Olympics just ended, 2) the next world cup is 3 years away, and 3) the Fall/winter tends to be the slowest time for US Soccer, I do not see how this suspension has much teeth to it. Now getting terminated from the USWNT is something significant and it appears in Hope Solo style, she is going down swinging.
The year of the Gonzalez catch!!
S-E-C, S-E-C, S-E-C, S-E-C
SEC at its finest
Do you think urban may have some inside info on this given his sisters role? He could have made this statement years ago but did not. Plus, if Cincy gets in he will get a lot of credit for his words and perceived help when it may have already been a done deal practically. Plus, would he have made the statement if it appeared Cincy was in say uconn or east Carolina position?
