I was in the Stadium in 1987 for Ohio State's Darkest Day. We were cold, wet and miserable. Damn you Earle
If you don't win your conference you've already proven you are not the best team in the country. Conference Champs only!
"51-4 when ranked No. 1 and playing an unranked opponent" is a disturbing fact. Who did we lose to? (I'm assuming to B10 conference teams)
They get paid now. They get tuition, housing, food, tutors, and a stipend. The only thing I would change is let them do some endorsements that would go into a pool of money that all college athletes could pull from.
Big Daddy. The DTs worry me
Yeah, I can't believe 2 people down voted him.
Thank you. I just bought it for my Kindle
I agree a statue should be built, but imo it should be placed in the Buckeye Grove.

Right, the SEC-East during the 2011-3013 seasons wasn't exactly murderer's row.
I read what you said. I'm sorry, but never finishing higher than #4 in any conference leaves a lot of doubt in my mind. Only 1 win, and it was close, over a top 25 team in 4 years, again leaves doubt in my mind. Vandy going 3-9 the year after Franklin leaves doubt in my mind about his recruiting. Was it great coaching or not so great recruiting. Following your train of thought, Hairball beat #2 USC on the road in his first year following an 1-11 season. That is more impressive than anything Franklin has done to date.
58-27 at San Diego and Stanford
He won his conference twice and finished #2 in 3 years at San Diego. He finished 2nd in his conference twice while at Stanford. He is 1-1 in bowl games. He has 5 wins over teams ranked in the top 15. He also coached in 2 NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl.
31-21 at Vanderbilt and State Penn
In 4 years of coaching he has finished 4th in his conference 3 times and 6th the other time.
He has 1 win over a top 25 team(#15), and he is 3-1 in bowl games.
Hairball has the better resume
um has the better product to sell recruits, and a proven coach. They are the bigger threat.
I didn't have high hopes for this thread, but I was wrong. Some of you guys have some truly great stuff that I would be proud to have.
Iowa needs to find a different coach, 4 years ago.
That's a fine fatty Kevin. I may have to do one next weekend.

Is the only response needed.
They are currently in 2nd place as the whiniest fans in football. Virtually no chance they catch state penn, but oregon is giving it the old college try.
Yeah, I don't know what that has to do with my post.
V-tech fans remember the Buckeye team that took the field last September.
Buckeye fans remember the Buckeye team that took the field in December and January.
The real Buckeye team on Labor Day, most especially with the suspensions, will be somewhere in between.
I expect it will be a very good game.
Depending on how the lines would develop this team could challenge for the B10 West. Obviously depth would also be a serious issue.
When they are completely self sufficient. It is also when they should get the right to vote.
Which kid's innocent reputation is being damaged? A message board is going to be full of opinions and speculation. No one is being damaged by this anymore than the "guess the 2-deep" or "guess the breakout players" speculation. If they are innocent we will find out soon enough and if they are guilty we will find out soon enough. Speculation from anonymous posters on a message board does not damage an innocent kid's reputation, especially when their are no actual names.
