If a coach has a winning record against another coach, that does not necessarily mean he is a better coach. For example, if Dabo Swinney and Clemson beats Urban Meyer and Ohio state on December 31, he will be 2-0 vs. Coach Meyer. Does that mean he is a better coach than Coach Meyer? No he is not in my opinion. Coach Dantonio is 2-2 vs. Coach Meyer. Does that mean he is just as good of a coach as Coach Meyer? No he is not in my opinion, and if Coach Meyer gets the chance to play Coach Saban and beats him again in what would be the national champion game, I would still give Coach Saban a slight edge over Coach Meyer and if Coach Saban beats Coach Meyer in the national championship game, I would still give Coach Saban a slight edge. His edge would not increase. As I said above, Coach Saban 1, and Coach Meyer is 1A. They are 2-2 against one another; Coach Saban had a 2 game winning streak against Coach Meyer before the last game they played.
I do not believe Coach Saban hangs around for another 4-5 years, I believe it is more like 1-2 years. I could be rest wrong of course.
In opinion, Saban is 1, and Meyer is 1A
How can anything Saban or Meyer do be diminished? Saban has won 5 national titles in 5 tries, and Meyer has won 3 national titles in 3 tries. END OF STORY!
I agree. Missouri in the SEC is also a strange one.
It is too bad for teams like Nebraska, Colorado, and Texas A&M are no longer in the Big 12 because they probably could have won it.
You are right, it was in Houston.
Oklahoma loss to both Ohio state and Houston at home, and neither game was close.
Now that Alabama team of 2 years ago truly was overrated. Their defense gave up 40 points several times that year. They were good, but certainly not great.
So you would not have had a problem with it if he had run onto the field and Peppers shoved him during the game.? You would be perfectly ok that? Anytime a fan runs onto the field of play they become a trespasser.They are taking a chance, and why run onto the field and say anything to Peppers? Peppers was approached; Schlegel was not. A security guard was right by, and again Schlegel should have let security handle it.
" he was helping security catch an intruder, not a fan"
He was an Ohio state engineering student attending the game, so he probably was a fan.
And Schlegel was a member of the team and he should have let security do what they were paid to do. They did not need his help.
That fan was an intruder and so was the fan that had the encounter with Peppers. The problem you have is a Michigan player shoving an OSU fan that had no business being on the field anyway., but you have no problem with a member of OSU putting a fan into a choke hold and slamming him into the ground. You are right. That fan was an intruder, but so was the fan that had that encounter with Peppers, bottom line is fans need to stay off of the field, and what difference does it make whether Schlegel was a graduate assistant? He was a member of the team and he assaulted a fan since you care so much about the fan's safety.
Fans go on to the field at their own risk. About 2 years ago a fan ran onto the field after an OSU game,and Anthony Schlegel grab him by the neck and body slammed him to the ground and he was not even coming after Schlegel. The student/fan as it turned was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing and his scholarship activities were suspended. Schlegel was not punished; and Coach Meyer and the rest of the team even joked about it so if Anthony Schlegel was not punished for his actions, Jabrill Peppers Defiantly should not be punished for his.
Maybe Coach Meyer goes after Hines also?
I agree, but it is more about Saban vs. Meyer going back to when they use to battle it out in the SEC.
If Cowherd said " Meyer has beaten Saban the last two times they have met" then that is incorrect. Coach Meyer beat Coach Saban in the playoffs in 2014, but Coach Saban had beaten Coach Meyer 2 straight. They are 2-2 against each other.
If the SEC had already won 2 national championships in the BCS era before Coach Meyer's arrival, then there is no coincidence of its rise to his arrival, and Florida also won a pre BCS National Championship just two years earlier in 1996.
I think you meant Mark Dantonio, not Mike D'antoni, the basketball coach. Coach Saban was 9-2 in his final season at MSU; He did not coach MSU in their bowl game because he accepted the LSU job. He won a national title as LSU's head coach in 2003, and he left for the NFL after the 2004 college football season. He coached in the NFL for two seasons 2005-2006 before returning to college football from 2007 to the present. He has won 4 of the last 7 national titles and Coach Meyer has won 3 of the last 10. The point I am trying to make is some coaches start out winning for example Coach Meyer, and some coaches grow as time goes on, and Coach Saban has grown to become the best coach in college football in my opinion. Coach Saban admitted in an interview that "Coach Dantonio has done a far better job than he ever did as MSU's head coach" but that goes back to growing and getting better as time goes on. Coach Dantonio is an outstanding coach no doubt, but it is going to take him a lot longer than 10 years before he wins his first national title if he ever does, and he has proven that he is no match for Coach Saban, He 0-2 against him with a combine score of 87-7. Coach Carroll is another example of a coach getting better as time past. I remember when he was practically run out of New England for mediocrity and afterwards became a legend at USC and returned to the pros and won a super bowl.
Conner did play late in the game along with everybody else on the roster it seems. He wore #43.
Because in recent years other SEC teams besides Alabama have won national titles and as a result, the conference as a whole is given the benefit of the doubt. If the SEC conference as whole continues to play as it did yesterday, then maybe the perception of it will change.
Indiana beat a mediocre transplanted big 12 team.
Why do you care that I care?
How come so many of you on this site care about the SEC?
Stuff happens. #1 OSU defeated Northern Illinois only 20-13 last year.
