They happened for sure. 2009 USC was a gift as well.
Missing a QB coach - Joe Daniels (RIP).
With Herman Coaching, I would have loved to see Pryor. And Troy would have been a monster too.
Or hate a good passing game
Since 2000...Dantonio over Heacock and Schiano for me. Built the defense that took down the 'greatest team ever'.
Unfortunately the national narrative ignored that the game was competitive for years. Buckeyes gave them that one, IMO.
It really was a huge play that totally swung momentum. Bucks looked to be back in the game it forcing the 4th and 19 and then that happened.
Its all good. We are a very fortunate fanbase. As you eluded to, imagine going through regimes that Michigan, Notre Dame, etc have had to go through. We essentially replaced a top 5 coach with a top 3 coach. That should never be taken for granted.
Man you didn't let this go...the game 6 interference call on Hainsey that turned that game was just as bad.
They only showed the overhead angle in the arena. It really wasn't the fans fault. Still shouldn't be acting like philly or Cleveland and throwing things on the field of play.
USC was a horrid loss. No doubt. But then the other 2 losses that year were to teams ranked 3rd in the nation, and both were by a TD or less in tight games.
Comparing a 3 loss team, who lost to 3 teams ranked in the top 3, to the 2014 team, isn't necessarily fair either.
And I guess it depended on when in the season these hypothetical teams would play...cause losing to number 1 USC on the road is certainly better than losing to a bad Virginia Tech team at home.
1994 Penn State was pretty damn demoralizing too (63-14).
Actually, Notre Dame was number 1. Buckeyes may have been picked over a one loss Alabama (lost to Texas A&M). However, I'm still not convinced that foregoing a worthless bowl game would have let the Buckeyes off of the hook. Gene bumbled so much in that fiasco its hard to know what would have happened.
I actually prefer the 2001 game...the one where Tressel showed there was a new sheriff in town. He backed up what he proclaimed 310 days earlier. It was awesome.
A couple of years?...or the next season when they won the Rose bowl and set a record by beating 5 teams that had 10 wins. The game was ugly, but USC was also ranked number 1 at the time. Still finished in the top 10 in 2008. If that's a decline, sign me up.
Yeah, 2009 Purdue should go up there. Missed that one when I was suggesting 2003 Wisconsin and 1995 TTUN.
For me, add the 2003 loss to Wisconsin where Gamble bit on a double move when covering Lee Evans over the LSU loss. While they did actually lose to Michigan at the end of the season, it ended the 19 game winning streak and bid for a repeat. The Sugar Bowl team backed into that game after losing to Juice Williams at home. I didn't expect to win that game.
Another painful one...1995 at Michigan. That team was loaded as well on the offensive side. Biakabatuka ripped out their souls.
You are just mad because your Dad's Supersonics were trash compared to the Warriors. Gary Peyton was a chump! /s (if its not obvious enough)
Foiled again! Damnit. Just being proven wrong everywhere.
90's bulls never had to fear for their balls since they never played Draymond. Advantage: cups.
The 2016-2017 Warriors would have treated the 1992 Dream Team like Alabama treats their random opponent on chicken shit Saturday.
The dynasty known as the Youngstown Pride would have run the doors off of all comers! Long live Mario Elie!
Need Geno-Machino to show up tomorrow night. I thought he was pretty dominant last night but only finished 1.
Unfortunately he is a rich ass...SMH.
Yeah but it wasn't while covering Curry and Klay...so they don't count.
