Not tOSU success levels but they did have 8 top 25 finishes, including a couple top 10 finishes, in the 10 years prior to be added to the Big 12. That's a better record than a lot of P5 schools.

Excellent use of 'shade' Mr. Ginter.

Comment 02 Feb 2016

I completely agree. It took about 10 years of football success and increased fan support for TCU to get a Power 5 invite. Houston (including the fanbase and administration) will probably need to do a lot more before they get an invite.

I agree with that but every QB gets criticizes about their personality/demeanor. Philip Rivers got roasted for being "too fiery and out of control." Romo got criticized for taking a vacation. Eli gets dumped on for making weird faces and he used to be called out for not being a leader. Cam's criticism is that he doesnt "act like a QB." His critics are only louder now because he's winning.

The difference is that nobody is asking / demanding that fans like the Falcons (or any other player/team). Nobody is calling people cowards or chickenshit for being annoyed by idiotic dances. Every team does it. It's just silly when Cam supporters get pissy when he is criticized. 

 Greg Hardy being a terrible person isn't a new revelation. That disqualify people from talking about a completely different subject. But if we're playing that game, Panthers fans should also take a seat since he committed those crimes while in Carolina.

Comment 27 Jan 2016

I agree with part of what you're saying. Cam does have irrational haters that should move on from his Florida/Auburn problems. Professional sports is littered with players (staff, coaches, owners) that have done worse. But people (especially opposing fans) aren't going to like him when he's stomping on logos, dancing in the endzone, and celebrating EVERY SINGLE first down. This hating isn't a new phenomenon. People didn't like Michael Irvin or Chad Johnson or Terrell Owens for "having more fun" than anyone else. The NFL can be boring and actively tries to inhibit individualism. Personally, I loved watching them celebrate like idiots. The difference between Cam and those "Divas" was that people never tried to claim they were anything other than attention seekers. They owned that they were villains. Cam's talent is new and he's exciting to watch. But let's not pretend that showmanship and smiling is new. Let's also not pretend that being annoyed by it is new either.

I agree about JT. I think the only way he leaves early is if he wins the Heisman and/or a National Championship. Though both are possible in 2016.

Comment 27 Jan 2016

No.

I understand why casual fans like him. He is one of the most physically talented QBs we've ever seen. None of the Touchdown/First Down/Big Play celebrations would bother me if he wasn't so thin skinned when other teams/players do the same thing. Maybe it's because we're division rivals but Newton and the Panthers were pretty classless before and after both our games this year (and most games every year). 

Comment 26 Jan 2016

Freshman/Sophomore players should get to transfer if a coach quits/get fired. Situations like Southern Miss has to be really hard on the young players in that program. Players have no idea when a coach or an administration has sold them a bill of goods.

I currently live in Atlanta. They are shutting everything down today at Noon (I work at a mortgage office and we're clearing out at 11). One station is reporting that the governor wants the roads clear by 3pm. It's not supposed to snow or freeze until 2am Saturday morning.
