That one exchange represented the entirety of Chris Myers' career. A completely asinine question saved by an incredibly entertaining answer.
I agree, very crude measurement. Especially since the college regular season means very little compared to the tournament. No ranking would be complete without taking both into consideration. The BasketBucks have had their moments but there's no way we're the 12th best program in the history of college basketball.
Other suburban Fort Worth nicknames included: Pee-Wee, White Ron, Ask and The Ferret. I didn't know the actual names of these geezers until I was well into my twenties.
That dude at my Dad's rec center is nicknamed "The Mailman." He was the exact opposite of NBA legend Karl Malone (5'8'', pudgy, and an actual mailman) except that he could ball. He was mainstay in those old Hoop It Up tournaments back in the 90s.
That Thad was my favorite Thad.
Having friends that lived on Chittenden also took 10 years off my life span.
A lot of us had the same expectation. With hindsight, I think we all underappreciated the quality (and quantity) of great WRs that Tressel developed.
You've got a point seeing how Waco was the city that hit the 100 consecutive days record.
As a southerner, this is true. Though let's not pretend that Ohio wouldn't descend into a Mad Max style anarchy if there were 100 straight days of 100 degree temperatures.
Hope this helps momentum for next year but I'll pass.
That didn't take long.
I thought about it but I rationalized those as Buckeye missteps instead of sparty wins. Either way nobody on that football team is really that contemptible outside of Connor Cook.
Jabroni Peppers isn't even great at being a ttun villian. He doesn't even rank in the top 5 of mitten state bad guys in the last decade.
(1) Taylor Lewan (2) Kyle Kalis (3) Mike Hart (4) 2011 - 2015 Sparty (5) Denard Robinson
Most public universities have taken this approach for years. Academic qualifications have never been a red line for acceptance. Specific to OSU, diversity in admissions includes: income, work experience, volunteer work, extra-curriculars, geography, military service (of students or parents), test scores, ATHLETICS, etc. If GPA and "preparedness" were the only (or most important) factors, schools would have a well publicized and very strict minimum gpa requirement that nobody, including athletes, would be able to get around.
Appalachians made up nearly 40% of the students served by our OMA (Office of Minority Affairs) department when I was a freshman 10 years ago. Our administration has made it a priority to help all kids, politically correct or not. I don't think OSU has ever cared about misinterpretations from that "segment of society"
Loving waited a little to long to start his Evan Turner impersonation.
Brent dropped this line during the Clemson/Auburn game this year. I think he's still as sharp as ever.
“when Bobby Petrino gets off his motorcycle, he’s a good coach.”
ESPN sticking him with the 3rd/4th best conference game on the SEC Network was an injustice. Sad to see him officially retire.
Meyer's backup QBs at OSU are undefeated. If needed, whichever guy plays will be ready.
I think you're right. The novelty of the first ever playoff probably led to he ratings being inflated. ESPN is unlikely to ever replicate their first year numbers.
They were great college players but they were both gone doing his last two years
Watson was a more talented player but he also had a much more talented supporting cast. I think Jordan Shipley was the highest drafted skill position guy during McCoy last two years at Texas.
The "best" player of the BCS/CFP era was Tim Tebow but Watson is definitely one the top 10 or 15 players of this era. It's hard to compare QB numbers over the years but I'd say: 1) Tebow 2) Young 3) Mariotta 4) McCoy 5) Watson.
Urban has gotten a bit extreme with this oversigning thing.
ESPN Hype Machine's other greatest teams ever include 2002 Miami and 2005 USC.
