I agree with everyone that he has done enough for us and I will have no hard feelings for him.  He has a young daughter and has to put her before anyone.  I seriously hope he shows up at the combine throws it 80 yards in front of scouts, runs a 4.5, and flies up the boards and makes a ton of money. 

I would be extremely excited if he stayed too.

I watched the game with friends at my house and my body feels this morning like I played middle LB for Oregon last night.  I taste beer every time I breathe.  My stomach is just a mess from booze, junk food, and no sleep.  I swear I have already nodded out 2-3 times at my desk this morning and I have been at work for 25 minutes.  

And I am the happiest person in the world right now.  It's hard to imagine any future Championships feeling as sweet as that one did.  Considering everything this team has gone through and the fact that we steam rolled the best of the SEC to get there.  Wow.

I truly believe Cardale could think about turning pro if he plays great the next two games and would lead us to an NC.  I would say he has the best NFL tools of the 3, and he also has his age working against him if he plays two more years.  

I am not saying that it would be the right or wrong choice on his part.  I just think 2 more victories would make that a real possibility because he has the potential to be a great project pick.  Maybe he ends up being Jamarcus Russell without the Purple Drank.

I love how committed she was here.  She is also the smartest person in Alabama. If you look closely its actually a really well-executed play.  She gets the defense to relax by faking the return back to her seat, but does a hesitation move and blows by the guy who was holding her back.

How many 5-star recruits would have bounced back after the first two years Grant had?  This team has an amazing group of seniors in The Grants, Spencer, Heuerman, Bennett, and Smith.  We have so much talent coming back next year, but there is a ton of leadership roles leaving.

Hopefully, whatever happens is the best thing for Braxton and the University.  I am always going to have a soft spot for Braxton because he made me forget about all that was going on with the scandal and gave us excitement for the future.

He turned that Stanford program around for sure.  I think what this year has proven about Meyer is what separates him and Saban from the rest of the field.  Urban was able to insert two new QB's in his system and still make the College Football Playoffs.

Harbaugh was winning at San Diego with Josh Johnson who put up really good numbers there and went on to the NFL.  He was also having his best years at Stanford when Andrew Luck became their starting QB.  I still think Harbaugh is a great coach and the best possible scenario for Michigan.  I just think he has some more to prove before he starts getting mentioned with Nick Saban and Urban Meyer.

I don't think this teams struggles have nearly as much to do with Blatt as it does the players. LeBron only looks engaged in half of the time and admits it. They have absolutely no rim protection. They need to get back to allowing Love to work inside early and often. It seems they just stand ar I understand the 3 point line and expect LeBron to get them open 3's. I know a lot of people likes Delly, but he is absolutely horrible offensively at the point.

Whoever picks him in the draft is going to look very smart. I believe he has proven himself against the run and rushing the QB this year.
Comment 22 Dec 2014

I completely agree that the Luke Fickell hate is way overblown.  I just don't feel that you can compare those OSU teams to the North Carolina teams.  First, Fickell had a lot of help  in those years from a guy in Heacock who has been apart of some of the greatest defenses in college football history.  

I also think Urban brought Withers in more for his recruiting in that area than anything.  Withers had some amazing talent that wasn't always on the field because of all the trouble they were in.  That defense was crazy talented with Robert Quinn, Marvin Austin, Quintin Coples, Zach Brown, Bruce Carter, Quan Sturdivant, Cam Thomas, Da Norris Searcy, and Deunta Williams.  That secondary picked off 20 passes in 2008 and he also had plenty of NFL exp.  I will say I was not impressed with the defense's performance while he was here, but I don't think it was a bad hire at the time.  WIthers did well when he had talent and OSU has much more on a consistent basis.  We scrapped the entire plan in the Secondary after his last season.  So I don't think we can place all the blame from that year on one guy, or praise any one guy from the jump in rankings this year.

We won the challenge, but the top of our conference could have played a lot better.  Wisconsin will still be a top team through the end of the season and I think we are going to get better and better as the season goes along.  

I am really excited about our team for the future.  I think it's becoming clearer that Russell will probably end up an one and done, but we still have plenty of talent in this class and the incoming class next year.

They don't need to just load up the box to stop the run, but they do need to stay disciplined.  That is one of the weak points in our defense and that comes with the youth.  Melvin Gordon loves to cut back and out run the defense to the end zone.  Everyone must stay disciplined to keep from taking themselves out of the play.

Louisville is a National Title contender.  You have to remember that a very good portion of our team has never played a collegiate basketball game on the road and the first game happened to be at one of the countiries elite programs over the last decade.  Their two main contributors are two very good upper classman in Blackshear and Harrell and they have won a lot of games together.

I knew that our team would start slow in the environment, but the key is how they would react.  They could have very easily rolled over and lost that game by 40 and called it not their night.  This is an OSU team that has a chance to make a real run because they are going to get better and better with more games.  They have great role playing seniors and a potential superstar in college basketball in Russell.  I think the X factor is going to be Marc Loving because they can be really good if he plays up to his ability.  I bet you Tom Izzo and the rest of the conference are more worried about OSU after last night.
