Loved the purchasing his jersey comment. Its how my hometown NFL team, the Redskins, is "run."
The Sugar bowl and Championship are both on sale at Amazon now for $14.96 each. So you just need to order something else for $5 and change for free shipping. Here are the URLs for the OSU games
Evan Spencer. Meyer just needs to use his SEC magic box for more eligibility. He is 3 times better than JT or Cardale. The ratings prove it http://espn.go.com/college-football/team/stats/_/id/194/ohio-state-buckeyes
I would not count on next year's starting QB finishing that high. Only because OSU may end up with 3 QB's getting significant snaps. If it was a comparison of total QB yardage (everyone who played QB for that year, first, second, and third string combined numbers, I would be as confident of great numbers next year.
If Braxton is still isn't healthy (which seems to get mentioned alot on these many, many, QB threads) I would think maybe he medical redshirts while Cardale and JT play a 2 QB system, then Cardale goes pro and he platoons with JT the next year. ps. I watched the Mia recruiting video, I think it was effective but I had no idea what she said. Nice shirt though.
Next year's playoff teams 1. OSU undefeated, 2. Bama undefeated, 3. Michigan State (only lost by 14 at OSU, but all 3 star QBs were out with the flu and Collier was a little shaky, 4. USC, with one loss. Everyone in Big 12 and ACC has at least 2 losses. OSU crushes USC by 63 because I hate their F*&king band. Michigan State beats Bama by 21 to continue the OSU and Indiana tradition of beating SEC division winners. OSU beats Michigan State by 35, but since Michigan State gave OSU its two closest games all year, they get every second place vote in each final poll. Wisconsin finishes 5th.
As others have said, here in Maryland most people barely follow college football. The few Big 10 fans were happy, and I work with about 3 Auburn fans who all loved Bama losing (I don't think they really care to who).
Bizarre how everyone forgets the 2010 Rose Bowl, or maybe they think Tressel's team that game was faster than Urban's.
A little late, but here is a link to all the OSU titles and the group selecting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohio_State_Buckeyes_football#National_championships
I vaguely remember watching the 1969 Rose Bowl, I was 5. That OSU team was the first team I remember liking since the Super Sophomores were young and winning, and I was young so I thought that was cool, and they were from the same state as me. Plus Rex Kern sounded like one of those actors who would be an action star. 2003 felt like a huge weight being lifted, I didn't want to be like my dad who went to his grave waiting for decades for the Browns to win another one (although come to think of it, that may happen to me since I am a Redskin fan). I did watching the 1969 and 2003 games again last week as prep for Monday since I have the DVDs. I can't wait to buy the Blue-ray for the Oregon game (I hope it includes Bama as well).
If not, then OSU would have to persevere with that other 5th place Heisman voting guy. That would really suck.
Ok, who doesn't start during the spring game if all 3 are healthy? One of the two guys who finished 5th in the Heisman voting, or the guy who won the National championship? What a problem to have.
Amazing that ESPN first SEC team is 8, and they have Bama at 10 as first SEC West team. Also top ACC team Clemson at 9.
He's still got his OSU shirt on. I'm OK with it. He's on to the next job, part of a coaches life, and he's gotta start recruiting.
Actually all 3 of Urban's championships, beat Sam Bradford in the other one.
Michigan Men. I try and avoid crappy sports pundits, so I can't remember who the 2 and 3 guys are. As a Redskins fan, watching Mark May spew OSU hatred is almost like having a member of the family turn into a serial killer.
That's what I was thinking. I fell asleep on the sofa waiting to see if Mark May came on ESPN and ate crow, and he's been trolling on 11 warriors all this time.
Society didn't learn their lesson with prohibition well enough, which helped organized crime in this country, they had to fight this idiotic drug war. Well at least a few states have got the right idea on pot, maybe in the future less of my tax dollars will be wasted on this crap.
I just made it (102 UV, 1 DV). Admittedly, the Sugar Bowl made it a lot easier. If OSU lost, I would still not be close. Of course I would probably just avoid the site like last year after MSU and Clemson. I was in Barcelona during VA Tech, so when I got back and watched the DVR I pretended I just watched a horror movie instead of an actual game.
From listening to Urban during the Bball game, he is saying the NCAA needs to up the scholarship limit from 85. I viewed it more as looking out for players rather than excuses.
Best or worst case scenario, there will be people selling theirs. It will just be different people depending on how the game goes.
If TTUN can have some success recruiting Cali and Florida, they could be really tough. A more talented version of Wisconsin, except OSU won't be playing them in a dome. It might take about 3 years, but along with PSU coming back the East division is going to be tough. With Urban OSU should generally be the best team, but definitely better competition.
But at least the OSU red zone offense should have it better next game. Although Bama's defense has some issues this year, they were a lot tougher than Oregon's.
Actually during the regular season it was PAC-12, ACC, SEC, Big 12, and Big 10 when you look at records against other P5 conferences and ND. Big 10 was only slightly behind Big 12 (I think 35 vs 40% winning percentage). SEC also had a losing record, thanks to the ACC slaughtering the SEC East at the end of the year, which might have helped the ACC get so many bowl games.
Since Bama seems to have opened up the offense more with Kiffin, I wonder if they will get more top QBs in the future?
