I will just say this, the 2014 season will just get sweeter for me as time goes on. Under Urban Meyer I have experienced some of the most satisfying wins I can remember. Beating bama, this years ttun game came at just the right time, I have enjoyed this run because I can remember the Copper years, always had talented teams but was always shy of greatness. We have greatness and I will always respect what it takes to make greatness, appreciate it when it happens because it can all be gone in a blink of an eye.
He really seems to be getting better as the season goes on as well, Even if he isn't making he play himself he is always around the ball. Absolute beast this year!
Well we know Hoke wasn't involved, they used the word "State".
Had the canes lost that game the outrage over the pass interference call would still be palpable.
I live in a small northern Ohio town and growing up everyone new my dad. Every where I would go they would ask me if I was his "Kid", it was annoying as a teenager but doesn't bother me now (I'm in my 40s and they still call me "Dave's Kid"). So I did a little play on words and came up with my username (Kid would have been to easy), avatar was just something cool that I liked.
Wow..hard to choose.
1. Have to go with Bo, Lloyd Carr was fired for basically having a "Bo" career (Carr did win 1/2 of a Natti) and while lewan is a lewang he will be a footnote in ttun history.
2. Prettyman gets the vote, I was born and raised in Stryker and this outrage cannot stand!
3. Desmond (and he should win the entire contest) what a douche, and I really, really think he enjoys being one.
4. Yost, my Michigan friends still talk about Yost, not as much as Harbaugh but they still talk about the "the impact he had on the game".
What is the old golf saying, "The last three holes of a round will automatically adjust your score to what it really should be."? Something to that effect, I would take a round like that any day just to be on the course.
Not really sure what going 2-1 vs Carrol has to do with tOSU, unless i missed a coaching change at some point? But Carroll was almost famous for losing one (or 2) games every year that he should have won on paper, as you said USC was pretty good back then. I really think you need to look at the job Urban and staff did last year when talking up coaches, winning a NC with your 3rd string QB is something we may never see again in our lifetime. The things you hear about Carroll during his USC days are not the same thing you hear about Urban now.
Never thought i would actually hear a reference to Hicksville OH, on this site (or anywhere for that matter).
Complacency is a problem, BUT I don't think that was the problem for our team last year and I really doubt that will be expecting to win just by showing up this year. I have to believe they will be hungry for this game as that is all they heard about last year was the one blemish and it almost cost us the shot at the title.
Now if you are a fan and not a member of the team then by all means talk the talk, me stating that we are going to win by a cagillion points is in no way going to change the out come of the game. I don't play for the team or have any contact with the team so overconfident I can be. I find it hard to believe that Urban won't have them ready for that game and by extension the whole year. Winning a Undisputed Championship can have an overwhelming effect on the culture of a team and while it is going to be really, really hard to repeat I don't think complacency will be the reason for any lose we might suffer this season.
Battlefield Earth, just terrible. But for some reason i always watch it.
I could watch this play for days (and have), it is a symphony of movement. Could it have been done any better? I think not!
Baldwin was such a pleasant surprise last year, just flat got it done. Rarely did you hear his name during a game and that is a testament to how far he came as a player. I really look forward to see who steps up and takes his place, should be a great battle. I have to root for Farris (seems like he's a gamer and one of my favorite under the radar guys) but either way we as fans will win as the o line has been a wrecking crew lately.
