Besides OSU running the table, I am rooting for Sparty to spank the Ducks and be undefeated when we play them.  A top 10 win would look good.  Also hope Cincy or VATech sneak in before OSU beats them.

They used different songs for a few years before they settled on that lame crap.  I remember them playing a Van Halen song (Jump, I think) after Georgetown won it 1984, which is the only time I remember enjoying the after the final video.  Although a Maryland fan also, I couldn't enjoy the 2002 video because of that crappy song.  After reading this article and realizing that song is about Bird, I'm going to despise it even more.

Murse, I have that thought anytime I see someone young doing something stupid on Youtube.  Also thought he is lucky that guard did not get seriously hurt.  If the angle of the body slam was a little different and the guard ends up in a wheelchair, he might not get out of jail for a long time.

Kinda interesting that none of the 9 OSU pro football hall of famers made the list.  I was googling trying to find a list of OSU College HOF players and stumbled over the Pro HOF list by colleges.  Nice to see OSU at third over the evil skunk weasels.  The list of OSU players (Cris Carter , Sid Gillman , Lou Groza , Dante Lavelli , Dick LeBeau , Jim Parker , Ed Sabol , Paul Warfield , Bill Willis)  Crap, I had to look up Bill Willis.  My Dad would not be happy as a Browns fan if he was still living.  fyi, website listing out pro HOF by colleges

As a MD fan also, and seeing the pathetic fiscal shape they were in as an ACC team, I don't know how the ACC could have poached anyone from the B1G.  That said, I hope MD uses any argument it takes to keep from getting ripped off from the ACC exit fee/holdup that they are trying to use on a founding member that never voted for the fee to be put in place.

The thing that bothered me about PSU getting NCAA sanctions for a criminal cover-up is it seems as if they are the only one.  I have a hard time thinking if the NCAA looked at some of the lack of investigations at schools of sexual assault of coeds, they wouldn't find more failure of schools to investigate.  That's why the PSU sanctions surprised me.

Comment 18 Dec 2013

I remember hating the NCAA for not letting Clarett or Williams play college after the NFL had stiffed them after they the first court case and they had agents.  The NCAA concern over students usually strikes me as complete BS.  Living out in MD I didn't hear a lot of details, but watching the show made me want to get a bus and run over Geiger.  I still wonder why anyone thought bringing Jim Brown to a negotiation was a good idea, kinda like starting off with a live grenade.

As a long-time Post reader, their college football coverage has always sucked.  For college sports, DC is a B-ball town.  And as others have noted Feinstein hardly ever writes about college football.  This annoyed me for about half a second on the ride into work today.

Depending on how far you live from the party I would think about going for 30-45 minutes, then go home (not listening to the radio) and watch the DVRed version.  Even if they had the game on I hate watching games I care about in bars (annoying chatter unrelated to the game, and I like my projector better than TVs I see in bars).  You can't stay too long, since too many people like to talk about game scores they get from smart phones.  God that drives me nuts at my kids games.

Comment 11 Nov 2013

I voted yes since it rarely happens that 3 AQ conference teams go undefeated.  But I think OSU has a better chance of going undefeated than Baylor or Bama, and less than FSU.  But only because I think Sparty is a lot better than VA or GA tech.

Its more like the limits on oversigning are catching up with the SEC.  The Redskins just had their safety suspended for two games for similar hits (see article)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/football-insider/wp/2013/10/21/nfl-expected-to-suspend-brandon-meriweather/

 

I didn't see any difference between what the Roby and the U Florida got ejected for and what the Redskin got suspended for, so I googled around and found an interview from August with the NFL VP for officials.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000226289/printable/qa-with-dean-blandino-nfl-vp-of-officiating

"College football also will debut a controversial rule this year. What do you think of the NCAA's new targeting rule that will eject players if they target an opponent?

I think it's a step in the right direction. They always have had that rule. It's just that the ejection part of it is new. And now that penalty is subject to replay review. For the NCAA, the standard of player safety is a No. 1 priority, and they have made it a key topic of discussion.

Do you think the NFL would ever go as far as adding a targeting rule?

I think the biggest difference between the NFL game and the college game in this regard is that we always have had the ability to eject or suspend players. Colleges didn't have that before. College football needs to take that next step. In the fine process, certainly we can do that because our players are professionals. However, colleges are taking a step in the right direction."

So I guess all those game changing SEC athletes should be happy since they will have to get used to not targeting when they get to the NFL.

I really enjoy these recruiting articles.  My only suggestion would to add to the chart at the end of the article each teams national recruiting rank next to each of averages. So under Rivals average it would read for OSU 3.61 (3).  This would help me become even lazier.

Well said, Southerstates.  I wonder if he can get a medical redshirt?  Come back for one more great year then off to the NFL. 

Comment 22 Sep 2013

As a Maryland fan also, I feeling better but not convinced about the Terps yet.  The WV QB looked terrible yesterday, although it was nice to end a 7 game losing streak to WV.  FSU next game in two weeks and Clemson later on will be really tough.  It will be nice if they can at least hang tough in those games.

If Purdue could recruit, that video could be used by other schools to make them look bad.  But since it's Purdue, it doesn't really matter.  I could only make it in about a minute and my head hurt.
